So, thanks to Paladin, I made all the character sheets editable by you!

Also, I am going to start the in game thread so we can jump intop action befor the interest wanes...

If you have characters still in the works, just keep working, I "think" it will be a few posts before we dive into combat.

OK, here's another question, how do I post images? As I say, it has been a while...

I think you have to post the images at Imgur, then post a link here.

Keeper Eric:
OK, here's another question, how do I post images? As I say, it has been a while...

Drop the image into an image-hosting website. I recommend imgur; if you have an account with them and use it, the image won't expire. Set the image to be the size you want while you have it there, 'cause you can't change it here.

Once you have it looking the way you want, right-click on that image and select "Copy image link" or however your browser chooses to phrase it. You want a link to the image directly, not anything else.

Then use the following here:

<img src="X">

Replace the X by pasting your link. You don't have to put it in quotes, but it's a good habit.

Optionally, before the > you can add "align=X" where X is left, right, or center. If you use left or right, and have text immediately following it (i.e., immediately following the >), and there's room for it, the text will appear next to the image instead of under it.

For example, this image from my page:

https://i.imgur.com/TgJQh8b.jpg

Would be posted here using this, sticking it to the right side:

<img src="https://i.imgur.com/TgJQh8b.jpg" align=right>

Re: Out of Character (OOC)
Game Mastering style:

 I dislike playing in railroady adventures nor do I like running them. I love it when my players surprise me in not doing what I expected. Keeps me on my toes (although it also sometimes leads to a TPK).

  What I am getting at is, there is no "right" answer or path. I think of roleplaying as cooperative story telling, so if it feels like I am forcing you in a direction - it may not be intentional. As we move along, if I am trying to warn you away from what I perceive as certain death - I'll probably just say so.

  This crawl is a great sandbox adventure, so please, explore what you like.

Re: Out of Character (OOC)
Understood. I also cut my teeth on old-school RPGs, where if you didn't ask for clues you didn't get them. Lends itself toward a cautious style of play.

Re: Out of Character (OOC)
Can everyone see their characters either in the Gatehouse or the Ruined Buildings threads?

Re: Out of Character (OOC)
I can see the Gatehouse. It must have been written up beforehand, as its appearance didn't trigger as a new post.

Where on that map are we?

Re: Out of Character (OOC)
I know we’re in Hidden Valley... I hope this doesn’t mean that our characters will have cauldrons of boiling ranch dressing dumped on them.  Is there a saving throw vs salad dressing?

In reply to 12th Doctor (msg # 22):

The PCs hear a deep "HO HO HO" echo through the Valley and start running like hell.

Re: Out of Character (OOC)
Sorry, its the Other Buildings thread.

Feel free to post your actions in the thread you are in (Gatehouse or Other Buildings) - this is one of the things I really liked about RPOL - you can split the party without letting both sides still know what is happening.

Re: Out of Character (OOC)
There are ways to impart information without letting on that you're imparting information. You know how Private Lines get [formatted like this?] Well, there's another version called Secret Lines. They work the same way (except only the GM can use them), but the recipient(s) don't get any visual indication they're seeing a private line.

Re: Out of Character (OOC)
Darn!

I kept waiting for posts and then realized the Gatehouse gang had posted earlier and I didn't get it...sorry.

Hey if you are ever waiting on me, and I am too dense to notice, make a "nudge" post so I know that I am the hold-up. Thanks!

Are we still a thing, or should I saddle up my cheese maker and ride for dairy-er pastures?

Re: Out of Character (OOC)
Still a thing - have you posted character actions lately in your thread (Gatehouse or Other Buildings - you should see one of the two)?

Re: Out of Character (OOC)
As a matter of fact - Doc, you are the only player in the Other Buildings thread, so if you do not post, your characters are trapped (in indecision).
