Re: OOC discussions
To clarify, I think that it's cool and fun when NPCs do some of the important stuff, because that makes the game world feel real and alive. I meant that it's just not fun to be the spectator PC all the time.

The old White Wolf RPGs were particularly bad about that.

Re: OOC discussions
Erina asked the person who shouted about the Elevan Lights what the Eleven Lights were, not just the other PCs.

Since Erina is a Noble and not a priestess, is it dishonorable for her to help with funerary rights?

If we don't already have Loyalty (Queen Leika), do we start at 60% when we gain the Passion, like with gaining Passions during character generation?

Ok, I'll post a reply in the IC thread.

Yes, those who don't have the passion can start it at 60% now.

Of course. I think the "all the time"-feeling is even easier to get in this play-by-forum format, and even easier when we've just had a long summer break. I'll keep that in mind. In a face-to-face game I think the Two Sisters-defence wouldn't have amounted to even a single game session.

Re: OOC discussions
Since it's the seasonal Orlanth holy day, do we qualify for a Power gain roll?

Re: OOC discussions
Are we still in summer slowdown, or is this the normal pace?

No, it's not normal pace, but unfortunately it will be slow also this week.

Re: OOC discussions
I'm really frustrated about the situation. I also GM a Pendragon game which I'm trying to find a new GM for. I unfortunately put myself on a level that couldn't handle changes in my private life and at my workplace.

Re: OOC discussions
I love Pendragon.  I inherited a game someone else was GMing and then disappeared.  Things were going pretty well but we ended up with only two characters (there were four originally including me).  So I recruited 5-6 others but over 6 months they all dropped with little to no warning.  Kinda killed the game as I created a bunch of plots and such for all of these players and then ended up with my original two players off in Ireland for no really good reason relating to their characters.  So I started up an Amber game with 13 players and almost 3000 posts in the last month.  :)

Re: OOC discussions
Based on The Chronicles of Amber by Roger Zelazny.  A five book series, that was followed by a second five-book series.  The basics of the setting is that there is a place called Amber that is the architype of the multiverse and everything else is just reflections or 'shadows' of Amber.  The game itself is diceless and relies primarily on story-telling.

I have less time for this (gaming) now. Hopefully I will get more time in a few weeks.

Unfortunately I didn't, on the contrary. I'm sorry, I was really looking forward to the restart.

I'm officially pausing this game until further notice.

I joined a game with a decent GM and it died immediately! My record remains unbroken! *fistpump* =P

Re: OOC discussions
Anyone want to do a soloquest? I was thinking of running a soloquest in RQG of the scorpion hall. With only 1 player it should be fast-moving.

Re: OOC discussions
What's a soloquest? What's scorpion hall? Can we keep going after the first adventure? I have so many questions and yet I'd probably like to play anyway!

In reply to Erina (msg # 415):

Runequest 2 had a play by yourself adventure called Scorpion Hall. It can also be played with a gm and one player. I would convert the monsters into RQG and we can go as fast as we like. Basically we could do several posts in a day. Since we would not have to wait for everyone to react.

I don't know anything about Scorpion Hall, but I do like being a solo player. So sure, that could be fun.
