A player with a similar character background to the Lyrandar Navigator has joined, and is taking the place of Samuel.

Hi all! Name is Ivello.

I was just pretending to be Samuel for a little while, but I got over that. :)

Re: OOC discussions, commentary, and suggestions
If you see something...

quote:
[ Private to GM: is there something I'm missing about black vs. grey skinned sharks? You've made a point about the shark's color 3 times, but I'm unfamiliar with anything related to that from Eberron lore?]


Say something.

And, preferably in character.

It's ok to not know stuff about Eberron (I think Tremor exceeds my knowledge, but I consider myself pretty expert) I know you don't know it all. So do most of the characters in Eberron. As in the real world there's a bunch of things we do not know. And here on the edge, in Stormreach, there's even more. I'm combining two source materials, Stormreach and Razor Coast. Local knowledge is held by locals. So: ask around. If you think theres a mystery, then roll the dice and tell me the skill you are attempting. Ask NPCs. If they don't know they will at least guide you in a  direction. Or not, but the interaction will not go unnoticed.

So: you noticed that the sharks color was mentioned, eh? Do they correlate? If not, is there a reason one report is off?

Take Inspiration for asking the question. But you still need to find an answer.

Re: OOC discussions, commentary, and suggestions
I've opened Heart of Darkness to our last three PCs.

I had to rewrite it a few times, so feel free to add questions in OOC to elaborate on what is going on. I may have left some things out inadvertently (I know I left some things out on purpose).

Also this is the Devourer: http://eberron.wikia.com/wiki/The_Devourer
One of the dark six, and probably one of the more commonly sacrificed to  in this area.
See also Traveler http://eberron.wikia.com/wiki/The_Traveler

Of course that's just how mainland Khorvaire sees them, maybe here they are considered good deities.

Re: OOC discussions, commentary, and suggestions
I believe I've got everything set up for now. If you think you are missing any information, details or have any questions as to how to proceed, ask here in OOC, and we will sort it.

Re: OOC discussions, commentary, and suggestions
So that new players know I have a rule about awarding Inspiration which acts like an extra Hero Die that you could use, or give away whenever you make me laugh out loud.

To show that I am capricious as well as benevolent, I am also going to award Inspiration when I am struck dumb with awe.

Inspiration for Tremor's discourse on death.

It may take me a while to come up with what is going on inside Tap, so that I can then have him say... very little.

Shoot! I just noticed that my post to Uldrik never made it in. As soon as I'm back at a keyboard, I will get you an update!

So sorry!

Re: OOC discussions, commentary, and suggestions
No worries, it's not like I don't take my sweet ass time posting. Actually recently I've been pretty terrible about it. I could probably use work and personal stuff as an excuse, but really I could spend the time I use reading before bed to post. I often just don't. I will work on that. Don't want to hold anyone up.

Re: OOC discussions, commentary, and suggestions
It's an unsolved mystery to me how to handle missing players, but we are not moving fast enough to warrant any worry about what to do with a 'quiet time.'

I wanted to say that when it comes to knowlege that you have you can always ask if the character knows something. you all have backgrounds and skills that give broad strokes, but putting a detail into your origin story or in one of my questions can sometimes be as effective as putting it on the character sheet.

Re: OOC discussions, commentary, and suggestions
Hi, I'm going camping this coming weekend (starting Aug 24) and I expect no internet. I'll try to get replies to all threads before Thursday, as I'll be packing and such.

And thank you all for such interesting posts and ideas. I'm enjoying the game and thinking about what happens next. I hope you are too!

Re: OOC discussions, commentary, and suggestions
I need some suggestions for 'Epic Climactic Battle' music. I need two; one for hordes of ravening monsters, and another for a big boss (think godzilla).

At this point I'll  entertain any suggestions.

Later, I might whittle the themes down.

Re: OOC discussions, commentary, and suggestions
Those are cool, Jack. :) I'll check them out.

Btw, (for anyone interacting with Doriah in the story), you should know I'm going to be travelling (me, not my character). I've got to fly out to Australia in a little over a week and it's basically going to take me 2-3 days to get where I'm going, including the night's stopover along the way. I'm going to be my mother's carer as she's going in for surgery the day after I arrive, so between traveling, jetlag, and the surgery, there may be a gap in my posting.

Epic battle music? Hmmm.

I like these two from Dawn of War 2:
For the Craftworld (Horde)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OJhtIv_Yd5w
Angels of Death (Horde)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=blCBoXKCGl0

From the same artist:
Fight without hope - Doyle W. Donehoo (Boss)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ch3KGgLTUyY


No Surrender (The Witcher 3) (Duel)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7OApaSxaPYw


And I assume you guys know Two Steps From Hell, lots of bombastic epic music?
Archangel (Boss)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dJ-QLl5qjLg

Protectors of the Earth
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ASj81daun5Q

Heart of Courage
