Re: Tavern Talk II (OOC)
I think there was some IC impetus, but OOC, it's hard for me to metagame my way into wasting a month of real-time play on something I know isn't going to be a net positive for the group.

(That's a hit on Amaldaris, not Rae.)

Re: Tavern Talk II (OOC)
Corros will make an investigation check on where Amaldaris was sleeping before the 5 bug out just to make sure.

In reply to Corros Graelor (msg # 574):

I'll roll it when I get home. To clarify, Amaldaris was on watch on the high landing before he disappeared. Between his summary execution of the captured Drow and his disappearance, one can assume that the elf is off pursuing his own agenda.

Re: Tavern Talk II (OOC)
Nic has never claimed to be a hero, and anyone who labels him as such is clearly misunderstanding what he does and why he does it.  ;)

Jenna Drax:
She was a little confused, for she had thought that the others were going to knock it down while she and Ulfgar rested but it seemed that they had made little impression on it.

ĒIt looks much the same as it did beforeĒ she said to Corros innocently...


This made me laugh...

JOUST!
We are in Birmingham (The Magic City.. but I'll take Silverymoon any day) and we passed by a trendy pub/gaming room that had modern pinball machines, which was a thing before my time (pinball that is).  I spent most of my pre-C64 electronic gaming youth in arcades playing Galaga, Space Invaders, Missile Command, and the like.  I was explaining to the wife that I'd be a millionaire already if it had half the money back that I spent on freaking Joust when it hit me:

Cavalier mounted on flying Ostrich... how have I never created and pitched this as PC concept?

Save the human and the orc or just the human?

Both, I think. We have not-murderous relations with one of the local orc tribes.

Wanted to post earlier, but couldnít.

Corros will cast Spare the Dying on the orc as well if no one else does.  Prior to interviewing the human.

Ha ha. You'd have been daft not to try it, though.

I'm guessing the IC went silent for a reason, so I'm not necessarily trying to jump start the game (I won't be offended if there's still no interest), but I received Dungeons & Dragons Art and Arcana for Christmas and was inspired to crank out a brief narrative post laying out kind of where the Out of the Black chapter was headed.

The hefty tome a sweet collection of game history and product art, with a bit of lore thrown in for good measure.

I think we were hung on what to do with the orc.  Definitely still interested here.

Sorry for the delay, I'll get a post up, most likely tomorrow.

I am really struggling to recall what's happened so far given how much time has passed since we started this chapter. If anyone can post a bullet point summary of what we know IC that would be really helpful.

Message #3 in the Adventurers' Journal might be helpful in this regard.

Campaign idea:

Missing persons -> trafficking ring used by various big bad actors.

Investigation, options for which thread of the web to unravel first.

Do I detect a potential restart?

Note to Self

Maybe. I've been in the mood for D&D lately. If there's serious interest from the party, I could give DM'ing this thing another shot.

The last chapter wasn't working. The Sleeper arc turned out to be a... well, a sleeper, and not in the slow-building, unlikely hit sense. It just didn't seem to grip and hold anyone's interest for very long. I'm not entirely sure why.

If there's a restart, I'll want to begin with a major retcon, deleting Ch. 6 and starting a new arc at the end of Ch. 5. This will probably mean deleting all levels earned during 6. ATM, I can't remember if PCs leveled up at all, and, if they did, how many times.

I think I could start the new arc from the end of Ch. 5. Some of the arc threads are already in place.

If there's not enough interest, my feelings won't be hurt. I didn't delete the campaign because I've been using it to warehouse char-sheets for PCs that I'd like to run someday. I've been daydreaming about D&D lately and some disparate ideas came together yesterday while I was watching an episode of Mindhunter on Netflix (I highly recommend it). I figured I'd save the idea here with my other D&D-related stuff. It wasn't a hint per se, but I'd be lying if I said I did it without wondering if there'd be a response from you guys. Again, though- it was mostly a lark and my hopes aren't high, so if there's not widespread, serious interest, I'm fine just letting it lie.

I am pretty much always up for playing Nic more.

ETA: don't take brevity as lukewarm interest.  I'm about to crash.  Haven't had more than five hours of sleep a night since I left on the 9th and I am going to reacquaint myself with my own bed now.

I donít want to be the guy that breaks up the band but...

The high fantasy genre has been a struggle for me for a while. The rules are an even bigger struggle. Iíve always been a rules lite kind of guy. These rules are way too crunchy for me to get my head around (some of the ooc combat summary posts have been longer than the IC post that goes with them). In short Iíve been muddling along for a while just because I didnít want to be that guy but Iím not sure I want to keep on muddling.

Thanks for your honesty, Dave. I understand where you're coming from. Don't feel bad about it.
