Re: OOC 1
Indeed, glad that is done. Now if we could just get a solid warrior type and a magic user we could probably start.
EDIT: I should mention there is an elf thief currently putting final touches on her RTJ...

An Elf Thief would be useful. If we can't get a magic user I could always just have Lucinda erupt with power at some point...

Possible, although the idea of an alchemist is great. We almost don't need a healer, given the potions you can craft.

Re: OOC 1
ahhh I see, sneaky. We can consider it, I'm pretty hung up on alchemy... I imagine you giving Jada one of those *special* potions we talked about in PMs lol. And then the following rampage as he punched his way through a few mountains haha. Obviously a bit of exaggeration but it would be epic.

Well, if we kept your elemental summoning powers to a controlled level I could see the viability of it. Lets wait it out and see what we can snag for a magic user, if nothing is great we might go down that road.

Welcome Lynessa! Another lovely lady joins the party. :D And I think the GM mentioned the elf thief was also female.. Nikolai, we will be traveling with the best of company. XD

I don't think you can ever have too much healing. What if Nikolai gets hit hard? We will need someone to nurse him back to health force feed him potions.

I see a monkey. The limits of PLs are essentially none.

Re: OOC 1
Looks like I have a bard and a magic user who are working on RTJs and will probably work out. Depending on how things look after that we might call it a wrap and stop looking for players. I have a small amount of work to do when I get the final head count, depending on the group makeup, but then we will be READY TO GO. WOOT!

Re: OOC 1
In case any of you are wondering, opening posts will be your characters arrival at the temple of light. Not going inside and wandering around, but simply arriving at the door. I will post first (basically describing the entry way and guard posted) and then let everyone know in OOC that it is safe to begin your intro posts. That's all, I know some people like to pre-write a bit... so in case any of you are like that... thereee ya go.

Settlers of Catan was actually the first game we played together as a group, and one we keep coming back to. It's like... our introductory game. Whenever we have a new player, we start them off with Catan.

And, I actually played Smallworld for the first time this weekend. It was a lot of fun, but I got completely clobbered ^^. Arkham Horror or Betrayal at House on the Hill are some of my favorites.

Jerischo's limerick on the group, attempt 1:  AHEH- HEM.

In the beginning, our group was quite bland
 With a guardswoman, some cat, a fish and
An elf, but with Devin “The Brown,”
I really did frown,
Because soon, my pants would wear that same brand.

Re: OOC 1
Ah. He hasn't seen the world much, so he has a flawed perception of many things. I was thinking that he has almost always seen them walking, pulling things, or resting; so I imagined him thinking they are just fancy mules more or less.

He probably could out pace a horse over distance in the right terrain, but in general it's fair to say that he can't. Certainly not over the roads.

Sooo I want the groups feedback about Nikolai... I know it's only been 4 days since he logged in and posted, but he has 1 IC post... I really want him in the party but if he can't be more active should I look for a replacement? Should I just write a response as GM for him and move the group forward? What are your opinions? I would really like a Cleric type character in the game and we could probably get an active one if I put it in WantedPlayers.

Re: OOC 1
The PM/Rmail seems pointless IMO. :/  He hasn't logged in. It's not like he is ignoring the game, he just hasn't had time to look at RPOL. (Unless I am misunderstanding that metric.)

I would probably either post for him or just assume his character went with the flow. Four days is just too quick to replace someone, especially if it includes a weekend. I'd do the post and maybe start looking for a replacement tomorrow or the day after.

While I agree that six is a more manageable number, wouldn't not having a healer limit the story a bit?

Update the RTJ and specifically mention how we want a cleric

Have the GM continue to play Nikolai

Ask for a new player to be the same character.

3. I have a plethora of RTJs that I can always use if needed.
4. No need for anyone to play multiple characters in a game this small, there are lots of other alternatives.
5. I just updated the RTJ to reflect 0 clerics.

Re: OOC 1
TRIPLE POST ATTACK.

So on an entirely different note... I have been getting several good RTJs and I am considering starting a completely separate group from all of you ... Putting them in a different part of the world (same map) with a slightly parallel but entirely relevant story line. Would you all want to be able to read their posts.. or would it be cooler to use groups to keep the threads separate until such a time as the groups enter a shared zone on the map?

I am not entirely sure I will even do this, but I do know I don't want the first group to get beyond 7 players... and with a map that is nearly 800x800 miles I think we could easily work in another group of players.

Re: OOC 1
Ya... the first game like this that I ever participated in like 10 years ago... used separate groups for separate locations and I personally liked it.
But since then I have only been in ones where everyone reads everything... I kinda think that is distracting and I can see how people in one group might "wish" they were in the other... so that was actually quite helpful :p

I think if I do it, I will likely keep them private.. that way nothing really seems to change initially.. but there is that hint of the unknown... when you know that another pack of people are somewhere doing something...

Re: OOC 1
Too bad about Nikolai :(. Still, some things just take priority... its an unfortunate fact of life.

As for a second group, personally I wouldn't read their posts even if they were public. I'm... well... I'm kind of a doofus, and I sometimes forget that I know things that my character doesn't. It helps me not make the kinds of mistakes that make Lynessa look clairvoyant if I don't know what happened either :P. So, I'd vote for private.

I kinda like the posting rate, here. I can usually only do 1 IC post / day anyway, so I don't have to worry so much about getting overwhelmed here. And like Lucy, I like to give everyone else a chance to post so they don't end up feeling overwhelmed :).

And yes.. very sad about Niko. If at any point he can post again, I have just NPC'd his character, he can rejoin.

Re: OOC 1
Roger dodger. I am going to toss this one last thought into the mix to bounce it off all of you...

What if I had the 2nd group leave from Freeport after you are all a decent distance away? I would do separate groups/threads so they would have their own Freeport thread obviously. And we could have the option to view between groups but it wouldn't be enabled by default. Basically, they would have a similar setup as you all did but their actions would be their own to decide.

EDIT: I'm not even sure how I feel about the above. I am just tossing around ideas. I re-read it and came up with like 5 problems with that idea... but there would be ways to make it work.

And it could be interesting seeing how a different set of people handled similar circumstances. Honestly, though, I have no strong opinion on the matter ^^.

I think talking through OOC is all groovy.. but otherwise it will be like you say... possessing the clairvoyant ability. I figure.. it's business as normal for everybody... everyone just continue the story like nothing changed. Except more people to chat to in OOC, well the Shared OOC. Each group will have a private OOC that they can talk in as well.

Aight... in retrospect I will probably go with Ternal and keep Salinda in G2. That should equalize the healing potential, since you guys/gals have more then one source of possible healing.

Re: OOC 1
Could it be:
A: our failure was forsean so additional help is sent.
B: A second group sent to work on the problem from another route.
C: The second group was sent secretly to stop the first group as part of a cover up, or even really the first group is unknowingly working for the bad guy while group two is the real group?
D: Ternal thinks to much.

I HAVE IT COVERED. I already told Ternal via PMs to wait on an intro post from the GM.
Don't worry I have it covered. He is replacing Nikolai, the church is basically calling him back and sending Ternal as a replacement.

Re: OOC 1
At this point if you decide to go to the gate and get horses, would you all like to create posts where you head towards that destination? You can assume that by following the main road that you are currently on... you will eventually get to the gate. If you want I can post the gate in the High Road thread and you can all make transitions to it?

OK what I will do is create the stables in the high road thread, so that regardless of what you do you at least know where to find them and have an idea what they look like before having to write about it.

NO pressure to go there, I am just going to start writing that up now so that it is ready whenever the group heads that way.

FFXI was my first MMO, and I'll always have fond memories of it. I still use my character's name from that game in every MMO I've played sense. But... SE did a free week of it around a year or so ago and... I just couldn't get in to it again ^^.

Also, yeah. FFXIV is pretty good. Not perfect, naturally, but I'd say that either it or SW:TOR is my favorite MMO.

I tried to play Dark Souls but... I'm afraid I suck just a little too much to really get anywhere on it. I got past the tutorial level and, in spite of my best efforts, couldn't get any farther xD.

Feel free to trickle into the Stables - High road from Freeport thread whenever you're ready. If anyone prefers to have the GM write a transition for them let me know and I can do it no problemo. Or stay in an inn overnight, it's all up to you.

Alfonz lit a light in his last post.

" Alfonz hobbled into the darkness of the stable and could be heard grunting a bit, momentarily, a bright light burst forth as he lit the torches that lined the stable walls."

Do you recommend any particular Lovecraft story for a beginner, Jeri? I want to read some of his stuff, but... every time I try to... I just don't like it ^^.

Re: OOC 1
Hurm. . .For a beginner, let's see.  At The Mountains of Madness is a classic, I LOVE Herbert West; Reanimator, which is fascinating and is a big influence on my own ideas of what makes for good dark fiction, I also like The Beast in the Cave, The Call of Cthulhu is basically mandatory, Dagon's short and good, Nyarlothotep is strange and cool, and I'm told The Music of Erich Zann is to die for.  Those are some.  Also, if you like Stephen King, well, he writes a LOT based on Lovecraft.  So, there's that.

George Orwell I've only read 1984, but I love it to death.  One of my favorite works/ political commentaries/whatever the hell it is ever.

Re: OOC 1
I do like Stephen King. I think the only two Lovecraft stories I've ever really tried to read are The Rats in the Walls, and The Dunwich Horror. I'll try to check out some of your suggestions. I've wanted to get into the Mythos since we started playing Arkham Horror...

1984 is the only Orwell book I've read as well. Personally, in the category of political commentary/whatever the hell, I liked Fahrenheit 451 a little bit better. 1984 was pretty good tho.

So @ the stables, 50% of the group has turned vouchers in. No rush just an update...
Jerischo and Lucinda both are getting close to selecting their horse and Devlin has been MIA since Friday.

All in all we are making decent progress, albeit not fast, there is no rush.

Re: OOC 1
It occurred to me that I never had Lynessa ask for her horse's name. I suppose that's what I get for trying to get a post out during lunch :P.

I know that feeling, TheDude. We have a program, written against an old C++ compiler that is... I D K... too big or something. After every third compile, the application simply locks up and refuses to finish compiling or run. Worse, the older IDE doesn't have auto-save on by default and so when this happens all the work you've done is gone.

Many tears have been shed over that program. Many of them mine ^^.

Average height for an elf would be around the normal height of a human. Since you say "a bit short" I will assume somewhere in the range of 5'-5'2"
Also, I guess the saddle was the mistake you kept eluding to? I just figured it was calling the male horse a she.

From my perspective, there was an awful lot of standing around staring at each other... The game is on a schedule, time wise, and extended "conversations" will result in the game clock moving forward. This doesn't mean anyone should feel rushed, but I fully intend on progressing the time when I feel it is justified.

EDIT: I should add... the 1.5 hours it has taken so far also takes into account the travel time through the city... I am not interested in always being so granular about it, but we won't always be doing SO much in one evening.

I figure... start showing up at the temple @ 6PM... and by the time you have waited on everyone to show up... met with the priestess... wandered outside... talked about what you're going to do... finally decide to walk to the stables... actually walk to the stables... wander around looking at horses.... ask questions about said horses.... a total of 4 hours progressing seems pretty legitimate to me...

Travel time is very legit. Depending on the size of the city it could have easily taken hours just to reach the stables. I was more confused about the 8->10 jump. I had envisioned the short back and forth only taking a few minutes, so the two hours was kinda surprising.

It seems that internet companies being arses is a theme this time of year. Sorry for being gone everyone and making you wait. I'm back now, that is until they decide to cut us off for more "improvements that we have to fix multiple times because it actually downgraded you after we fixed it last time."

Blargh, I wish there was competition around here so I could go grab net from someone else. Well nothing I can do but put up with it.

In any case I'll be getting a post up momentarily.

Re: OOC 1
Soooo I have a few people interested in 'adopting' devlin. The one I am leaning towards... wants to shift his gender, but keep most of his other attributes... Their writing is solid, and they are excited about the possibility of being able to join the group. They haven't ever written as a male character which is likely the reason she would want to change the gender.

After reviewing most posts... it doesn't seem like it would take more then a few minutes to adjust the few posts he has done to reflect a gender swap...
Do any of you have any qualms about it?

Re: OOC 1
Howdy partner! *tips hat*

For convenience: I haven't changed a whole lot to the character in the description, barring the gender and picture. The only thing I changed was the part about Devlin not bothering with morality. I prefer my characters a wee bit less inclined to great evil so it's been changed into:

quote:
Devi craves knowledge; she also craves control over her powers, as magic is volatile by nature and she fears harming others around her. In her search for knowledge, Devi has grown to find most superstitions and rules men live by laughable. She looks down upon those who follow the herd blindly and has no respect for those who she considers simpletons.


That's all! :D

I was kinda waiting for Jeri to respond before having Lynessa bring up what to do next IC as well. The fact that we don't really seem to have a plan other than "go North" hadn't been lost on me.

Anyway, I'm afraid Lynessa's skill with puzzles mirrors my own. Your poem could be blindingly obvious and I'd probably still miss whatever we were supposed to get from it :P.

Travel safe Jada.

Also, it's up to you all to wrap up the proceedings before I can make another post. I just don't want anyone feeling neglected by me... I'm raring to post when I see an opportunity. I just don't want to step on anyone's toes. BTW there is going to be a 3rd group.
The only thing I will tell you about them... is that they are in Denair.

Ugh, sitting still and being moved by various devices has no right to be this exhausting. TT

After Lucinda's silliness has been addressed, I'm fine with a GM summary and moving on. I am not really attached to writing about burying dead people.

Re: OOC 1
Normal lives are for noobs!

Just a quick question, which I hope is okay, DM. Does everyone want to move on OC as well? I get that the characters would think that, but maybe the players want to investigate further? If so, Devi could totally voice that she thinks we should at least try and take action. But if everyone wants to move on it's not worth the hassle :D

Re: OOC 1
I know what you mean. I as a player am very interested in intrigue and shadows of war and such, even if Lucinda would be more interested in getting on with the game. However, if Devi brought it up and wanted to learn more, Lucinda would totally go with it.

Re: OOC 1
If you're asking about whether we, the players, want to investigate then I'm up for that. Lynessa certainly would, if the opportunity came up, but she'll go along with the group if we move on and hope that they can finish their business for the Priestess before Merand receives another letter.

Re: OOC 1
    You should all feel comfortable speaking about what you want to do on your characters. Devi, ask as many questions OOC as you want. I don't think "metagaming" in this type of adventure does anything except improve the flow. Consider that whatever you decide.. be it delivering the letter or burning it in the camp fire.. whatever you do will impact the story, so you aren't missing out on anything "up north" by doing something down south.. the only thing to consider is actual time spent IC. For example.. the map will be changing shortly to reflect the appearing darkness. If you were to travel back and forth between freeport and tiro for the next 3 months, the landscape would change dramatically.

    I have rambled enough. Just want you all to feel comfortable openly discussing your thoughts here OOC.

I'd encourage you to have Devi say what you think she'd say. I don't really like it when characters bend to the will of OOC. I'm fine with whatever path the story takes.

Re: OOC 1
Jada, normally I agree. In games like this though, a vague but impending doom might have the characters rush onwards even though as players you may want to stay and spend an IC day or two in a town. Normally, when doing tabletop, you can easily decide amongst yourselves if you want to investigate something further or not. In this case Devi might be the only character who would have cause to want to stay IC, but since it's not for personal reasons, I don't want to derail the story with it. So it's good to know what the others think :)

Ya, I understand what you are staying. I still think you should just post IC, even if all the other characters disagree with your character. As a player I am fine with whichever path the story takes. And I would hardly call investigating the captain derailing the story.

Sorry for my absence the last couple days. Been a busy weekend... I've been volunteering at the county fair. When I haven't been tied up with that I've been too bushed to engage my brain and come up with a coherent line.

Hey Jeri, I am not entirely sure what you are currently doing in Tiro. Are you just plodding along on your horse deeper into town? Are you following Jada? Are you following the girls that went after the stranger? Any action is fine, even a fourth option I didn't mention. Just make your next post clarify where/what you are doing for me. Domo!

Re: OOC 1
Hi Devi,

Your character is currently standing outside a series of houses in the town of Tiro. Lalita, Lynessa and Jerischo have each entered a house from which smoke was rising.

A brief explanation of what has happened to this point:
(anyone can feel free to add to or correct me)

1. The group each responded to a call for heroes...
2. You all met in Freeport at the Temple of Light...
3. Had a slightly odd conversation with the High Priestess and each received a blessed item which supposedly protects you from the darkness and perhaps does something else...
4. Got horses and left town heading north towards Tiro
5. Camped for the night and each had visions which contained specific lines from a confusing poem. EDIT: You may not see it, because it was buried in a PM to you at this time but YOU also gained a spell at this point in the story.
6. Saw a rider come from Freeport, later found him dead.
7. Discovered a letter on the corpse meant for Captain Merand in Tiro, but opted to NOT deliver it to him.
8. Arrived in Tiro and split up in a few groups.
9.... and I think that catches you up.

You will still need to read the bulk of the posts, but this will help you understand roughly where you are at.


Editx2: Let me know if you can't see the PMs. I did a quick read through and I think you will be able to see them all, but I'm not positive.
