Re: Updates and thoughts
I'll always use Pcs turned NPCs when I can.  They have a history and bring a consistency to the game :)


And I have just added a list that contains some of the monir aristocracy associated with Restov.  It is not exhaustive.  If you think of a charcter you think should be listed -  let me know  :)

In my head it is a bit like the broth from French Onion Soup  :)

I know what I am doing with everyone now -  so everyone should have a new thread by the end of the day :)

Re: Updates and thoughts
Out of curiosity, how do all us new players fit in with the rules from "The Campaign Rules in the Stolen Lands" at this point?

In there you mention people getting a free Hex and build points, but I assume that is for the already established/initial players/groups?

Re: Updates and thoughts
That is a good question :)  I am adding a breakdown of the rules (and how they fit the game) as a notice  -  but that is going to be a bit of a slow process.  I know the Campaign Rules are long and complicated, but I am always happy to talk people through their ideas and help work out how we can use the campaign rules make the ideas work.

All of you new players will get a Build Point after you complete an action thread (ie have proved your ability to Henry and your Stick-around-ability to me) and the second one when you you go up to your next level.  Which is (more or less) the same basis as for the original players.  (but they had to wait until we had some land to give out)

This time around The group from The Ringbridge thread will get their first BP and most of the others will get their second BP.

That said, you may all engage with the Entourage section of the Campaign Rules.

Re: Character Updates
After the flurry of posts from me this week or so, things well slow down again next week. We are in the middle of an IT Upgrade at work and I am responsible for the local implementation.  We spent agea preparing then  the last couple of weeks in the Eye of the Storm -  while we waited for it to happen.  Monday they start to Do It To Us.  My next two or three weeks are going to be busy.

Character Updates

Levels
  • Percy, Pipre & Andalon - may advance to L5 and all get 1bp
  • Adoven, Cass, El, Mariam, Marik & Quinn may all advance to L4
  • Fiddler, Kendric, Quentin & Safiya  - may all advance to L3
  • Domitius, Gehron, Marceline, Rose, Silvius, Zelona and Zirul all join us at L2


Campaign Rewards
  • Quinn, El, Fiddler, Kendric, Quentin & Safiya  -  you all get 1 BP  - which will act as a starter towards building you ownr part of this New Land.   However, it is up to you whether you want to participate  in this part of the game :} If you havent done so already PM me with any ideas that you might have, and Ill talk them through with you.
  • Marik, Mariam,  Adoven, Cass, Percy, Pipre & Andalon You all get your second (and final) BP award - from now on you get what your investments earn.  I will build that into the Midmarch financial  calculations  (I love spread sheets) and will get back to you individually with how much you have to spend.


Entourage

Many of you are eligible to take on a new Entourage Assistant.  Remember the limit is Half-level + Charisma modifier.

Goodbyes

The following characters will lose their individual character sheets, images, descriptions etc.  Either their players have left or their role has changed so that they  are no longer liable to take an individual appearance.

Illian, Jicca, Laksha, Jack Black, Sir Ferdinand, David Hart, Lolli, Lydia Sylvne, Prudence, Zach

Re: Character Updates
My initial thought on adventuring parties are :-

  1. Narlemarch (21L) Forested area explored on foot  - Pipre (Alchemist 5), Safiya  (Magus 3), Kendric (Pal 3), Fiddler (Cleric 3), Quentin (ftr 3), Zelona  (Druid 2) Rose (wiz 2)
  2. On the Water (21L) Messing about in Boats -  Andalon (Cleric 5), Adoven (Bard 4), El (Ftr 3), Quinn (Wiz 3), Silvius (Bard 2), and Zirul (Monk 2), Domitius (L2)
  3. Kamelands (21L) Hilly area explored on horseback -  Ethankos (Cleric 5), Cass (bard 4), Mariam (Pal 4), Marik (sorc 4) , Gehron  (barb 2), Marceline (Inquisitor 2)

Character descriptions are very 'shorthand' and really don't do the characters justice :)  but they do give you a basic feel for each others abilities in the field.

Your thought, concerns, Comments by PM

Going in the Narlemarch group looks good to me, it's where Zelona wanted to head to start anyway!

I have a couple of horses, I can sell/lend one if required.  Not sure if Domitius will need one if he is messing about in a boat.

Re: Character Updates
After distraction getting back to sorting my equipment, and was wondering, have other people bought particular food they want, beyond anything we're given?

As this is what I was thinking:
Cheese wheel (5lb) - 0.5gp
Honey - 1gp
Oldlaw Whiskey, bottle - 20gp
Powdered Milk - 0.1gp
Travel Cake Mix - 0.1gp
Wandermeal x20 - 0.2gp

Who wouldn't want to add a spoon of honey to their porridge for example? Or use some travel cake mix to make pancakes when out travelling?
As for the whiskey, having a nice treat when out and about seems worth it, don't you think ;)

Re: Character Updates
I don't think we have role played much regarding food in the field. Although it is good to have along and nice to have such specific items for flavor. *winks*

Welcome to group 2 Gehron, Marceline, and Ethankos. I look forward to adventuring with you.

Also any and all new members are free to discuss their ideas for world building Midmarch and the specific business endeavors they might pursue both in and out of character. Ears are listening.

If you want to add some local flavour to you campaign food - check out the last post in the   Notice: Exploration Thread.  While it is the source I use if Characters go Hunting or Foraging - it also tells you (in a round about way) what  will be brought into the local market.

I used it recently for that purpose -  but you guys won't be able to see that for a couple of days  :(

I'll get a bunch of 'Open' threads up shortly where you guys can all mix IC and get to know each other.  I thought putting ALL of you in a single thread ATM would have been ... bedlam ...
