And it looks like the DM is having a bit less time than before for whatever reason.

Re: ▶ OOC Conversations II
Yeah Honestly it took a hit loosing the three others, its a shame, but the last week has been pretty busy on my end. Real life sucking. But those things aside it isn't fair to the rest of you that stuck around and for the new players. Which I'm setting a bad welcome too doing this.

Tossing an update now. Just feeling a little discouraged is all. Slump, but I'll come outta it.

Re: ▶ OOC Conversations II
No need to be discouraged.

You've got a really fun game and a good group of people ready for you whenever you get to us :)  Attrition always happens but the advantage of your game is it is easy to bring in new blood while those that stick around for the long haul keep the core nice and strong.

You best, great game, keep going with it and it is set up to easily add new or adjust how things play out for those in it.

Ali makes a new toasty drink for you  though I would rather not drink it unless he makes his alchemist check  lol

Re: ▶ OOC Conversations II
Not trying to be pushy or anything to the new folks so don't take it that way.  Wasn't sure if you knew what the DM wanted in the posts once combat starts Doran or Standrenn.  The others are more old hat and know the routine but if you haven't read up on any of the other combats...

Obviously we're PMing the rolls to the DM (you don't have to but I think it keeps clutter out of the reading of the post action and whatnot) but he normally wants your Initiative (d10+Weapon Speed), your Attack roll(s) targeting the creatures (and having the creatures name or the square designation in your notes for roll bit) and until they give us an AC number for what we are fighting as long as you would have hit an unarmored individual ala AC10 roll the damage for the strike as well.  If it misses then they can ignore the damage, if it hits they just incorporate the damage and move along without having to ask you or roll it themselves.

Polo. Hoping things are just difficult right now in RL for the DM. I know losing a few people got him down.

He did check in last Sunday so hopefully just means he's super busy.

Re: ▶ OOC Conversations II
Much as I want him here, this is my busy time so it's been good that I don't have to worry about getting behind.  Last time I traded messages he'd also mentioned RL being uber busy.  The combination of the two can be a real downer.

Plus side is that all of us players are logging even if we aren't talking meaning we'll be pretty good to go when he irons out the wrinkles and comes back.

Yes, good to see everyone is lurking awaiting the next action :)

RL can drain you like a vampire which is why I adhere to patience and lurking posting when one can.

Hope all is well.

Time to brew some new concoctions in the mean time for Ali - any suggestions??

OK Healing salves, lotions and potions/brews.  Probably dry leaves mixed with teas and other liquid ingredients.  Based on plNTS AND SOME Chemical mixtures of (heck if I know as a player right now).  Maybe even solves or liquids you soak berries in or fruits or use in baking??

Probably fire type chemicals to represent molatolv cocktails, dynamite, phosphorus burning, gunpowder ect.
Could be light producing only or heat and light too.  Fireworks stuff too

Sticky substance for better climbing, holding onto or griping.

greasy substance.

devices that can fly short distances like tops, whirlybird birds maybe fueled by the pyrotechnics

Substance to coat you to help protect against cold, heat, wind, rain ect.

of course substance to help with cough, hair loss, teeth rot, burns, making thing taste good.

Love potions, breathing potions

Gas bombs, smoke bombs

Some ideas thoughts.

Re: ▶ OOC Conversations II
All look like good ideas.

I know I'm considering going through a Mithridatism process for Kossoth.  Use the venom that he took and administer it in tiny enough doses to build up a tolerance/immunity.  Of course since Type A Poison is the 'weakest' injection poison he wouldn't exactly gain much from it in the long term since it's far less likely for us to run into weak poisons when we gain levels and end up fighting tougher things.

Than again there never was an actual official rule for doing that so it just might make Kossoth extra crabby and nauseous the entire time he's doing it, lol.

Re: ▶ OOC Conversations II
I jumped in today to see what has been said. And check the PMs. School started today for the kids and wife, and I started working Nights, so its been really hectic, I doubt I will be able to return to this on a full time basis like I used too. I apologize but my life has changed and has done a 180, where I used to stay at home and watch my sister in law now I'm working 12+ hours a day standing on my feet, with no access to my cellphone. its been a big chance, but something that needed to happen financially. Again I'm sorry guys.

It is okay, RL always takes precedence over a game. I can speak for myself, if you want to continue this game, at a much slower pace, I am willing to continue playing at what ever pace matches your schedule. I also understand that after working 12 hours a day that you don't have it in you to even post and want to cancel the game.

Re: ▶ OOC Conversations II
I totally agree with what everyone has said.

All of us are game for whatever pace you want to set if you stick with it and us or if you decide to wrap things up that's totally kosher too.  I've done those sorts of hours and my wife has too so I know what it can do to you.

Re: ▶ OOC Conversations II
It may not seem too important to mention here since we're on hiatus at the best but I've got Dorian coming down the street and wanting to come in my yard.  So power might or might not go out over the long weekend.

Good luck with Dorian, we were able toavoid the hurricane and home now.

Yes, DM, if it is only 1 post a weekend to summerize what we do/see/actions I am good with it OR any pace.   R/L comes first and if you can DM us even very slowly cool - I am here too.
