Re: Out Of Character Discussion
No problem, I almost missed it as well.  I think from now on we'll PM the person that we want a response from so that it'll help make things a bit clearer.

Ok I'm leaving the current thread open for people to finish up their posts on the surface of the world, feel free to get some interaction going on with each other, and then my next game post will be a new thread and will be the first day underground.

Also feel free to let me know if there is something you don't like about how I'm running the game or something that you think I can improve.  I'm not a perfect DM and I'm perfectly capable of making a mistake or overlooking something and I'm more than happy to listen to constructive criticism.  I'll just ignore anything that I don't like...:)

I hope everybody is enjoying the game, if not let me know!:)

Re: Out Of Character Discussion
Sorry about the delay guys, I had a ferocious migraine over the weekend and have been avoiding looking at screens more than strictly necessary.

I will admit I'm a little overwhelmed by the large cast. I'll try to get a good post or two in today though!

Re: Out Of Character Discussion
Hope you get better soon too!

I believe we'll be moving forward pretty soon, as our DM said.

For the large group, i don't think it is necessarily a bad thing, we might want to split into two groups at some point and right now we are more in the mood of expedition management i guess. The big work here is for our DM though!

Could i suggest making a separate In Character Discussion thread? This could allow us to roleplay a bit while not cluttering up the main event threads with our banter. We could do more in there to introduce ourselves and build bonds between characters, this could be done either via private messages or normal posts, depending if you think the discussion is heard by other people.

It's just a suggestion however. Feel free to run it as you think is best!

Re: Out Of Character Discussion
Well when I run a game I recruit more characters than I really want too, mostly because you're bound to lose a few. I recruited 7 for my most recent PF game, dropped to 3 and had to recruit 2 replacements. It just makes things hard to follow at first. :)

Also, I'm feeling much better today. I have had migraines for 15 years so I'm just about used to it by now. Ha.

My wife gets migraines as well so I know how painful they can be.  The other thing is that she can never find a painkiller strong enough to take the edge off.  The only ones that worked knocked her out pretty much.:(

In reply to Pirlouie Bartleby (msg # 74):

An In Character Discussion thread is a great idea!  So should we have one for every thread or just a main one where you guys can run ideas off one another?  I'll create one for the current thread, and if we decide to make one for every game thread I'll open up a new one each time.

Haven't read through the posts yet, will post as soon as I've done so.

Re: Out Of Character Discussion
I've finished the new game thread.  Everybody should be able to see the new one if not send me a PM, I will archive the old one the next time I'm online.

Also sorry if I didn't reply to something said in the last thread, I read through them and saw a couple of things that I could have responded to but I wasn't 100% sure if I should.  Please PM me if I missed something and you want a response or just drop a private line in the post to point something out.

I realize that I'm kind of railroading you guys at the moment but don't worry that's not my intention for the rest of the game.  Now that we are actually in the tunnels you guys are literally deciding what to do with the expedition.  If you guys want to do something then post it in the in game character discussion thread and hammer it out then let me know and we'll run with it.

The caravan can travel for about 10 hours a day, that includes stopping every hour for five minutes to have a short rest and one longer rest for lunch.  So you've got to find a camping site for the other 14 hours that you guys have to rest.  You can force march and improve your traveling distance but then you start fatiguing yourselves and run the risk of having to incur penalties and so on.

Could you each also PM me any goals your character is trying to achieve while on this journey?  It can be anything you want.

You will level up at certain stages of the adventure.  I was going to run this adventure with XP but it would take to long so instead once we hit a milestone you guys will gain a level.:)

Re: Out Of Character Discussion
Also I forgot to mention that the main group of the expedition has several Continual Flame lanterns which they use to light the way for the non-darkvision members of the expedition.  The scouts can all see without light.

Re: Out Of Character Discussion
No hard feelings Syrava. ;) I promise not to cause a giant uproar in the group, but Vangelaine is going to find Xiru a hard sell in character. She'll just be cautious though unless something happens.

Re: Out Of Character Discussion
fyi...regarding Dorians suspicion about Elves. all that's a bit of role playing this-

Ancient Enmity: Dwarves have long been in conflict with elves, especially the hated drow. Dwarves with this racial trait receive a +1 racial bonus on attack rolls against humanoid creatures of the elf subtype. This racial trait replaces hatred.

Re: Out Of Character Discussion
Totally fine. Vangelaine feels the same about Syrava's devil. Not making waves, just looking with a raised eyebrow and a healthy degree of caution.

I'm just sort of treading water right now, since we're not doing a whole lot.

(Vangelaine would like to point out that she is half human!)
