Re: OOC-1
I am getting so slow in my old age...

I made a Breakfast bread with apercots and prunes and raisims in it and offered some of it to my son when he came by.

He saud  "sure, regualr bread I see..'

I said, "no, it's a fruit bread for breakfast with coffee".

My wife is giggling and my son says, "and it keeps one regular, right?"

I totally missed that one.

Re: OOC-1
I uploaded a picture to Group 3, mostly for Chris1234 but Bluedwarf might enjoy it too.
I am amused, but obviously there is still a bit of irritation. Thought you all might like a laugh for July 4th.

If not familiar, The top fellow is George Washington and the bottom fellow in Robert E Lee.
You may well know them, but assumption would be wrong of me.

I have to admit that I was also a bit unsure of my status. Thanks for clarifying.

Either. In response to the IC statement that we were waiting on an Adventure idea...

Re: OOC-1
No, just time to think ... without inputs about rain, dogs being sick, various medical stuff, what I want for dinner, the dishwasher needs emptying and phone calls about all the things others want me to do/buy/get involved with.

A part of it is my own fault... I have at least three stories I am working on beside what's on RPOL.
One posted, well one chapter posted and the next expected soon. My mind is normally this active, but my fingers move slower on the keyboard.

Re: OOC-1
@ FoF - If it's ok to ask, are the "three stories" fiction books you're writing? Or plots for (other) RPGing?

***

@ Mustafa - Maybe together we can work up a package/idea that FOF and adopt/adapt and feed back to us?
e.g. I (the player) would be interested in doing some in-your-face combat. (Actually fighting stuff rather than sitting on the top of a hill directing troops with flags or whatever). It's completely fine if that's versus bandits, ogres, undead or whatever the flavour of the day is. We'd probably need to finesse it so that the interacton is off the books, i.e. the PCs directly rather than as leaders of small armies.
e.g. it's either an ambush, or something "off the books", so maybe one of Amelia's darl secrets, or some vendetta of Mustafa or, perhaps, someone threatening the woodlands (which would engage Kenyan). What are your thoughts?

Yeah, an assault of orcs on one of our lands would lend istrelf to that. Mustafas approach has always been to lead from the front, so he has had backup for when things go pear shaped. But some solid enemies that have to be dealt with the old fashioned way are the bread and butter or fantasy RPGs...

Re: OOC-1
I have a really strong yearning for a dose of the old fashioned way.

(had a couple of tough days and feeling like I want to throttle something. In DnD, that's def orcs. Don't know how tough they are in GURPS. I do recall being shocked how touch orcs were in Rolemaster - about as tough as trolls in AD&D versus a level 2 PC party).

I doesnt have to be integrated to the manin story/campaign, although it can be; a side trek is often a nice change of pace and context.  :)

So, Mustafa, what thoughts have you that def lend themselves to Mustafa & Kenyan dealing with it in person (rather then in the safety of having dozens and dozens on troops around)? COuld be as simple as the pair are doing a tour of the estates and they encounter <whatever it is> obviously that's subject to greography etc but, frankly, I have no grip or concept on that at all.

Even with dozens of troops around there is nothing stopping us leading from the front. No special tricks required...

Ok, works for me. Ty. Over to you, FoF. (I think we'd both happily go with whatever.)

Re: OOC-1
Well lots to answer.
I tend to not do lots of combat with Lords leading from the front... however we ceratainly can do that.
I am just trying to pull some ideas together.

As for stories, I write for myself and post a few.  All are fiction. I can send one to you Bluedwarf, as I have your email., if you care. May not be of the least interest tho.

I'm certainly no hit, but then Stories on Line has a bent toward sex stories of the worst sort.
Those of us just writing stories tend to get lost there. But it is a good place to hone your skills, as there are a lot of nice people there who are willing to help edit ad suggest changes to the storyline , thus a Stick it out and just avoid the poo Piles.

As for Orcs, I play three types, Snaga, Standard and Uruk. Each is somewhat different in skills, outlook and goals. The different species do not necessrily like each other.

Re: OOC-1
No, most  of those are abhorent.

I'll shoot you a copy.

I have an idea forming for your next adventure(s) ...  No Orcs involved. ;-)
I'll assume you all go back 'home' for a couple of months before this next one.

Yes. And train up a core of volunteer soldiers, all skilled with ranged weapons. Run Archery and crossbow competitions, as well as cavalry competitions.

Develop the land as much as we can as well, but rotating crops, fruit trees, etc that are sustainable.
