Re: Discussion Area
Way too many players for one group, in my opinion. Splitting into 3 would be great, but we only have one compass. I could imagine that we split up, and Radagast does stuff to keep the 3 on track (long range communication through moths and birds? :) ).

Splitting up does make sense. We don't know where exactly we need to go (unlike the fellowship). We're not being actively hunted either (like the Fellowship). We can cover a lot more ground by splitting up.

But I never envisioned Tavaro to be a classical 'party member' really. He doesn't slog along as you can see, it's even contrary to his nature. He could be one of the scouts/outrider, his speed is amazing and he can fly around all day long without problem.

Re: Discussion Area
I just did some housekeeping on the characters. I went ahead and deleted all the NPCs. I kept them around in case any of the original players decided to return.

A bunch of other characters have been tagged as Outriders. If any of these players show up, they can jump in easily this way.

Re: Discussion Area
Outrider sounds pretty good to me. I've been pretty unmotivated lately, thanks to being busy with work(Promotion!), and I'd been intending to do something similar to explain my lack of input thus far. Hopefully things calm down soon, and I'll find the energy to post more.

Re: Discussion Area
My computer just gave up the ghost today. The screen stopped displaying anything, though it's lit up, so I'm figuring it's either the  monitor that somehow burnt out or else the videocard went out. Or maybe the hamster died.

Anyway, I can use my friend's computer on a more sporadic basis until I can get mine fixed or replaced.

Anyway, I'm still around; I just may not be able to stay on top of things all that quickly.

What is Elmohtar's great bird? And does it react to the presence of Landroval?

Re: Discussion Area
I think I made it pretty obvious, but that's a ring of feather falling that I gave you, Tila. One of the most underrated magic items there is IMO.

Re: Discussion Area
You are right. It was obvious, and it's underrated.

Sadly you can only have two rings, and I value the two I have (I don't do necromantic hands of glory or anything)

Re: Discussion Area
O.O

The hand of glory is made from an elf hand. Celembrimbore made all the major rings but 1, even then he had the means to make it.

Elves are linked to all rings period; through Celembrimbore... Mind blown.

Re: Discussion Area


On the front page (RPOL home page). So it was 1999 when I posted and 2000 afterwards.  Nowhere else as far as I know

Childish I know :) but sometimes it is the little pleasures that count

Re: Discussion Area
Tila:
OOC 'Aha it's a hole in the ground that the GM has brought to our attention, let's go look at it' even though we have no idea at all that it might be linked to our stated desperate mission isn't something I understand why we'd do. This is an OOC comment because mostly I'm saying 'let's not metagame'. If there is a faint hint of clue... I'm all for it. Both Elmohater and I have high knowledge skills, and there isn't any hint at all with those skills that says 'going down is in any way related to our mission'


I get where you're coming from, but in this case, it might be helpful to explain my own thought process.

Jak's prime motivator is not helping radaghast, or saving the world, or anything remotely similar. He doesn't really care about the whole good/evil thing. Jak tagged along because it seemed like it might be interesting. While he realizes that the cave is probably unrelated, it is nonetheless still interesting to him, and thus worth investigating, to his mind.

As a sidenote to this, I'd like to point out that even if we did quickly investigate the cave,  it's unlikely to have a meaningful delay on finding the entwives(possibility of injury notwithstanding). Thus, I feel the decision of whether or not to investigate is not a big deal.

As for the chance thing, that's just Jak's shtick. He's very much believer in fate. He'll suggest deciding things randomly every time something similar comes up, because to him, whatever the outcome, it was always going to happen that way.

Re: Discussion Area
Hey all,  I'm sad to have to say this but it's become clear to me that I will not have time for much/any gaming through seminary.  30+hours of week each for my employment work and my school work leaves me with not enough time for my wife and children, let alone time for enjoying myself with you all.  I hope that when I graduate (or when some to-now unknown relative leaves me a fortune in their will so I can stop working while I do school?) I'll be able to come back and join you all again.  Until then, I hope that you guys have a great game.

Re: Discussion Area
Sad to see you bow out, Grimfast; you'll be missed, but I know how RL can take away from your gaming time. He'll still be around if and when you can find your way back.


Also, I just wanted to remind everyone that I am still working without a computer, except borrowing my friend's. I had hoped to have it remedied by now, but some more problems occurred, the latest of which is that my debit card was hacked from an online site I buy games from. I'm out a few hundred dollars for now, but the bank is supposed to give it back to me since it was a fraudulent charge. Just waiting now.

So some good things happened, sort of, but waiting for those to go through. Looks to be another week before I can get a new computer. $300 to repair  the old one just isn't worth it.

Still here; just slow on some days.
