Some 'meta' info about the game

I wish I could take all the credit...

But this campaign is the fusion of two resources: the D&D 3.5 Stormreach book for Eberron, and the Razor Coast module. Putting them together is weirdly easy, and there seems to be a nice synergy in the settings.


Anyhow that's where the source ingredients come from; I'm just the chef.

I picked up the My Little Pony game out of curiosity; someone had once mentioned reskinning Mythender to do that.

I don't think this version is a reskinned Mythender.

Low posting because of Child's birthday and Father's day back-to-back! Monday for sure.

This is as close as I am likely to come to seeing Tom Hanks live:

It could be worse, I could be under Jack's command with no mutton to eat.

next she will be feeding those sea monsters Wolves in sheeps clothing when the mutton runs out.

Re: OOC discussions, commentary, and suggestions
I am continuing to experiment with internet technology: try this:

Theme Music
This is my pick for theme music for Tremor's thread Becalmed in Stormreach;
right click to open in another tab, then click play, then read the adventure.

Most of the time we can link to youtube for themesongs , but sometimes the song is not available on you tube.

But if you host it on Drive then we can link to that.

Excellent idea, thanks! I updated Jack's description page to replace the YouTube links with Drive links.

What about the direct link option?

RPOL does not recognize the iframe src code.

What do you mean by a direct link option? As in, playing music within a post? That would be nifty. :)

On a different topic, I thought this was interesting:
https://on.natgeo.com/2yEABqe:
"Other than hardtack and salt beef, the closest we may get to a genuine pirate dish today is salmagundi, loosely described as a 'salad', and consisting of a random hodge-podge of ingredients, generally a scrambled concoction of meat, fish, vegetables, and fruits."

I've removed Samuel from the game; he's not been here for a month.

What should we do with the missing sailor?

  1. Shark bait
  2. Overboard
  3. __________

Re: OOC discussions, commentary, and suggestions

Well, if he was on Jack’s ship, I might suggest ‘Olaus-bait’. ;)

Bummer losing a player, though.

Re: OOC discussions, commentary, and suggestions
You can't lose someone if they were never truly yours.

But you can eat them...

Valid point. Is anyone ever truly?

Re: OOC discussions, commentary, and suggestions
A word on craft:

I may not answer your posts immediately. What I do is try to think about what is going on, what is coming up, and try to find something interesting to happen next.

For example, I did not know who it was that had fallen overboard until yesterday.

I also require input from the players as we progress, which is why most of the time I will have your character asked to make a decision at the end of my posts.

Also as a heads up I'll be wrapping the individual intros and having the group meet.

Whether you split the party after that is up to you.

Re: OOC discussions, commentary, and suggestions
Tremor, I'm assuming the +1d6 came from using Inspiration

Which means you have room for an Inspiration award for a GM LOL.

Ta-Daaa!

Inspiration awarded.
