Just call me the cooler.  I always seem to kill off PbP I DM.

It's just the nature of PbP.  In the 14ish years I've been on this site, I don't think I've been in more than six or seven games that had a real ending.  Never figured out a good solution for that...

I'm trying my hand at it now.  I just got a game started, so perhaps I can break the curse.  (You're all welcome to RTJ, of course.)  link to another game

I'm a bit overextended at the moment, but appreciate the offer.

I started a roll20 text chat game up last week.  The pace is more to my liking, and I've had better luck keeping a game going there. However, I've got extremely limited time that I can actually schedule, so I have to do very short sessions.  I'm trying 1 hour at 8:30-9:30 pst Tues-Wed-Thur for the moment, but I might have to cut that down as I found 2 days in a row a bit much.

I was surprised at how much interest I got though, I ended up with 9 players for 0e D&D, all but 2 showed up, and there was some confusion about the time, so it's possible I'll have everyone this week.

Sorry Xiamat - I appreciate the invite, but I'm also going to have to play the "overextended" card this time around.  Hopefully next time...

No problem, guys.  I have plenty of players at the moment.  But feel free to RTJ at some point in the future, if youd like.

I am traveling until next Thursday.  I will still have internet access, but I may not have brain power for posting, and I definitely won't have my books with me.

Eristo's actually along with the others, and I'm NPCing my old character from the old game Rod Krait - another M-U, but they've both been fairly quiet.

Rod Krait has an idea, but being also DM, it may not be fair to use or say what it is.  I won't say it for now, if you feel desperate I'll let it out.

The sides of the room are narrow and crowded.  What about the area where we are currently standing - is there enough room there to maneuver around the soldiers, once they get over here?

There's a 10' walkway between the new pool and the wall the door is at, which might be easier The largest non-pool area is where the throne is, with a 15' between the pool and the far wall.

So I'm seeing two ways we could do this, both of which seem iffy:

1) The soldiers get close, Xiamat keeps them busy, I move around back to take out the king (Eristo and Rod can be on whichever side - I imagine at least one of them should stay back to help Xiamat).
2) We try to lure the soldiers into the room behind us, shut the door on them, and then we all go after the king together.  Even if the soldiers break out after us, we can move a lot faster.

I'd be willing to continue this, but no one posts for almost 2 years, so I'm going to delete the game next week.

I'll wait a week and see if anyone else shows up.

(edit) I'll continue either way if you want, just want to give others a chance to return if they're up for it, was a bit pressed for time.

I've been looking over my defunct games and it appears all three hit this point where I think there's some miscommunication or not enough detail or something and no one posts what they're doing, and I may not have prompted well enough, where I'm not sure how to get it back on the rails.  This one's in the best place of those though.

Xiamat will keep drinking muscle milk and doing pinky pushups until he returns.

Just us 3, I've got to find my DCC book and refresh myself how to play this.

Alwyn, I wasn't sure what you wanted to do... there's a pool of water in the middle of the room with a 5' wide raised area on both sides - both with clay soldiers.  They'd obviously see you if you tried to squeeze by on the left.  You could possibly swim through the pool to get beyond the soldiers.

Yeah, I think swimming across will have to be the plan.  Hopefully they stick with Xiamat long enough for me to do my thing...

Having some trouble finding my copy of DCC bear with me.  Actually I'm wondering if that's part of why I dropped off (had some big changes around then too though, changed jobs twice.)
