Re: OOC 3
I have formalised the Sports and leisure category of developments - so they are now available for the next Campaign Round.

I have also 'designed' another team sport that could be played in stadia and on sports fields.  Bunt Ball is a cross between baseball, rounders and various forms of cricket - and has the potential to be absolute mayhem!

Re: OOC 3
All three adventure threads updated.  I expect to get another set of updates into those threads either Thursday or Friday - after that I am away from my computer, with only occasional posting, until 19th/20th June.

Let me know if you want any other Fuzzy threads opened up.  We  have the 'party' and I intend to  bump the duelling salon thread - these are a good way to start a conversation with characters from groups (or some of the PC run entourages)

Also think about the Fuzzies that you would like me to start as part of the Campaign Round.
  • Trip to Restov?  For shopping, socializing and catching the Cup Final game?
  • Another duelling competition (with you guys running your own combats)
  • A walk in the forest  (a relatively safe part of it with no adventure/combat)
  • Something else?

Re: OOC 3
Still hoping to clear Candlemear. Do I need to recruit for that so I can build there?

Re: OOC 3
Candlemere is on my agenda for when Group 1 has finished their current quest  :)

I want both Ethankos and Marceline available - after all, that place should be their bread and butter.  Laying that place to rest, aligns (sort of) with their published Character Goals, and it would be remiss of me if I didn't give them that chance.

If things do according to plan, there will be quite a major party reshuffle, when Group 1 (eventually) gets back.

@Vova - I am afraid Adoven has been laying claim to Candlemere for ages -  and he has the backing of Tusk council  :)

I have just republished the finance spreadsheets.  Remember that the up-to-date version is at the top of each section now.

Re: OOC 3
You may also use the time I am away to advance any  Entourage members who will be eligible for advancement during the campaign round.  (1/2 your level rounded down)

For entourage-Cousins and assistants it is 2/3 your level - rounded down.  The only Entourage-Cousins/Assistants that I am aware of, who can advance are Lutz and Robert.

You may also want to decide whether to take on  a new entourage assistant (if you have a slot available.  You are allowed (level/2)+ Cha bonus.

 I think the only connection Vova really has to it is that Nethys is pushing him in the direction of the loony priest and the hole in the world. It'll probably be fine if someone else sits on it. ^_^

I thought you could only add entourage members when you gained a level? Am I misremembering that?

Some people haven't yet recruited for their current level.

Re: OOC 3
The dice have decided that Valaria (lady Ringbridge), Allana (Marik's Entourage) and Svetlana (NPC Mayor of Oston) have given birth this year.

I generally use a 33% chance for all female NPCs in a relationship.  I do not roll for other female characters -  assuming that they are career women who are not currently interested in children - at the moment.

However, if you want any of your female entourages (or similarly associated Characters) to join that list -  please tell me  :)  Pregnancy & childbirth is ALWAYS a choice for Female PCs.

Is that the currently abandoned tower down in the Narlmarches? Or a different one? Either way, Marcy is up for sanctifying and helping the dead move on.

Also are entourages the NPCs that look after your buildings/houses/ect?

That is the Tower on an island, marked on the map between  Mudbowl and Hex 52.

so are entourages the NPCs that look after your buildings/houses/ect?

Pretty much.  All buildings come with the appropriate staff to run them - but entourages let you RP a bit more, if you want to.

Guys, for those of you with Business or Settlement accounts -  please can you check them now.  Some people are having trouble seeing the tabs on the Spreadsheet.  It might be that you need Excel to see the whole of the work book.

If you can't see your account, let me know ASAP.  I won't be able to do anything about it while I am away.  I leave bright and early on Saturday morning  (UK time)

Tusk looks fine -  I think was Oston.  However, I have fixed that on my master sheers.

Tusk sheet WSM local base hasn't got a number in the special field
fixed that on the master sheet as well.

Looks fine on my desktop computer.

The only thing I would query was on the greater_tusk_finances_new_system / Tusk worksheet, under Hinterland there are 4 hamlets all with description "Hamlet Full". Should only LeMaistre House be full?

I presume the section for the unnamed District 3 on that Tusk worksheet is just a blank template for the next district? We haven't created another a new vacant district yet, have we? Maybe add a note under Description to clarify it doesn't exist yet and we haven't put any BP into establishing that next new district yet.

Correct on both counts. Cut & Paste happy!    I have made the changes in the Master SS, although not uploaded it to the website.

DM, are you going to make 4176 Development Threads before you leave, so we can start hashing out building development plans while you're gone?

If it helps ... I've seen problems with spreadsheets before when they're viewed in a browser rather than the native program ?  When I had that issue I saved the spreadsheet locally and opened the copy.

I wasn't going to -  but I'll give it some thought.

I normally take quite an active role in all of those threads .....
