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 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.

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.


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.

Re: OOC 3
I'm back!  That said, I have a lot of unpacking to do  (The kitchen was refurbished while we were away)

Had a great time - lots of Roman ruins, Hadrian's wall and bits of Border Reiver history -Puffins around the Farne Islands, a bit of Falconry and a bit of country walking.  Oh, nearly forgot, Alnwick Castle and a trip to an astronomical observatory on one of the cloudiest nights of the year.

I'll start updating adventure threads (it might take me a couple of days to get up to speed)then get straight into the PM questions and downtime posts.

Re: OOC 3
Following a PM discussion with a Player, who pointed out that armed vessels don't take up any more space than unarmed vessels. I have modified the way that armed vessels work.

Costs have come down, but income has been decreased accordingly.  Armed caravans have not been changed.

These Def points now count towards Noble Titles, BUT not towards a settlement's defence.

Re: OOC 3
I have plans for Ringbridge this turn, but I'm still waiting to hear from Cyrus.

Boss, I generate 0.3 bp per turn in Mivon. Am I STILL paying an extra 1 bp per Econ added when it comes from those funds?

Re: OOC 3
Yes.  Mivon is a difficult market.  The Rulers of Mivon (The Great Aldori Families) believe that anyone else in Mivon is there to support the Great Aldori Families.

Some of them even think you should be grateful for the chance to earn anything, beyond coppers, at all.

The Dosalic sisters know ...  And even the Yitis Mivon (Aldori but not a Great House) might have some views.

Re: OOC 3
After discussion with a player, I have just changed part of the Entourages page to read ...

quote:
Potential: Levels 4, 5 and 6 are important to your most important Entourage Members.  The Entourage build rules allow you to have a stat at 14 - advancing to level 4 lets you increase that to 15.  At Level ++Level 5|(or higher in some cases)++ the entourage may take a PC class OR  a Prestige classes - so long as they can meet all the prerequisites.  Entourages may never have more than two classes.

Re: OOC 3
Guys, please try to post an OOC breakdown of your development requests/plans.  I love the Descriptions, but sometimes it is difficult for me to work out exactly what you want to build.

It might seem a bit pedantic/grumpy -  BUT overall I have to record something like 200bps worth of developments and transactions this campaign round.  With a 50% return rate (across Southern)   that means something like 300bps worth of transactions next year ...  The monster (and the chance of error) grows ...  :)
