My apologies for not being around lately. I...there was a family emergency that was nearly a death in the family and a lot of stuff has been happening due to it (not the least of which was my depression kicking off over nearly losing my youngest sister). I will try and get back to game soon.

Hi folks. I lost my job today. Iíll need some time before I can come back in a regular basis. Iíll try to update in two weeks.

DM, please feel free to sockpuppet my PC to move things along; I can always catch up when I come back.

Okay, sorry to hear that.

Arklon, with Giliwan coming on a month with no login, would you mind if I narrated you all to port in Stormreach, you can go on your own into the city and attempt to press the story forward?

No, that's fine with me. I was planning to suggest something similar as soon as I get back from this business trip.

Okay, there ya go.

Also, If Giliwan can come back (in short order, as we're coming up on a month with no activity) then he can resume with a recovery in the Enclave. Otherwise... Sivis poisons can be tricky...

And when Hujger resumes posting he will pick up at the Leaky Dinghy (or the Runaground Inn, as preferred).

I've turned off the 'help wanted' sign after getting eight applicants. I'll winnow them down and let you know as as I welcome them in.

Welcome Lorelei !

What in the name of Holy Siberys is that character description?

It reads as one part The Great Bard, one part George RR Martin and one part Ursula K. Le Guin.

It is a shot across the bow to all existing character that something wicked this way comes.

I'll just be over there, trying to stay out of the area of effect.

I'm on your side, I swear! You all had unique stuff instead of the usual "Bob is this tall with this hair color and really likes honey in his tea," and trying to make a good impression turned into... Well, that. Those comparisons are pretty amazing compliments, so thank you for that, Tremor. ^_^

I really need to work on mine....

Anyhow, welcome in. I think we have two more hard on your heels, so make yourself at home while I figure out what the heck is going on.

I suspect a thread with your name on it will open up within a week.

You're a pirate, right? I have something for pirates... Left it here somewhere....

I do, sometimes, commit acts of piracy. Still totally nice, though!

Wulfric and Padre!

The sheets might want a little tinkering still, but what is there I like. If someone comes up with a clever and easy way to have equipment on the sheet, let me know.

I should have a post up tomorrow. I just want to wait until I'm not fading from tiredness so I can do it justice.

Maybe some of us could create character connections where our characters have met before.

It is not always necessary to do justice, however.

I would prefer to see a response within a week. I'll kick after a month, and your PC could suffer a terrible fate. Sad, but true.

If you are stuck, ask a nearby npc. I'll recognise the attempt, and try to see you clear. Ask questions of any npc for ideas. Ask them in private message.

Or if your character is truly confounded, and you want to explore that feeling, do an internal dialog.

I love internal dialog! I very rarely get to see the inside of another person's character.

Just nudge the plot forward, lay pipe for future revelations, or just wing it, knowing that that's how many of my posts are as well!

No pressure (some pressure), post, and have fun!

Oh wow I completely did not expect to choose the enemy myself haha. I wonder if letting the dice roller choose for me is about to screw me over xD

As for doing posts justice, I, for one, wing it for the majority of the time. It's a lot easier to write when you have a fleshed out character and even if you post then read back and are not quite satisfied, there's always the option of editing the post, provided nobody's replied yet. Watching a story develop is just so much fun ^^

And if you are still stuck
You can ask here in ooc, or give me a PM.

As a friend says: 'We must not let "the perfect" become the enemy of "the good".'

Something something good, bad, ugly.

Sorry, all. Real life has been...all too real. I fear any motivation I had for this game is gone (not due to the game or GM or anything), so I will bow out and let those who can and want to participate play instead. My apologies, and thank you for allowing me to play for the time I did.
