Did Vashon disappear from our sight?

No. You could see Vashon all the way through the passage. At the other end, he does momentarily move out of sight, but you can still see the crypt at the other end after he opened that door.

Re: 7: Hole In the Wall Pub (OOCs)
Probably a bit too late, but I've moved all the posts for the Crypt of Kaballah Kabar into a separate thread. I didn't do it originally because I didn't think it'd be that much detail or take that long. And when I realized it, I though it was too late.

I was under the impression that you could change the Subject line of a thread with no extra results, so maybe that's something that's changed or something only the GM can do. When Vashon did it at my suggestion, it spun that post out into a separate thread!

While I could have just copied it to the other thread and then deleted it, I decided to put all the Crypt posts into it. Only took about 3 hours.

On the plus side, it now gives me a format for putting up threads for the rest of the Wonders.

Aniyu who were you talking to about it not being chaotic?  Hope not me cause I didn't say that in character.

The room basically. Remember Lucien is not just a paladin but a paladin of the God of duty. So the moment we all went off in 20 different directions it becomes complete chaos to him. And the point of no leader is correct and the reason why is also correct. Can't argue with any of what was said. That being said before to much longer we are gonna have to get to know each other and find a leader or two.

Re: 7: Hole In the Wall Pub (OOCs)
Oops. My bad, sort of. Lucien did say it was chaotic, and that seemed to reflect what was going on in the room. So, maybe Aniyu just picked up on Vogh's body language or facial expressions. As a Neutral Druid, he would be more sensitive to the extremes of chaos, lawful, good and evil.

In reply to Hardcore Jimmy (msg # 207):

sorry, I have a bad habit of being chaotic neutral and probably didnt need to post that I disagree. I was referring to whether it could be argued or not as well as that we need a leader.

I just wrote a lot from the mindset of my char so please forgive me as this reply will probably sound like how the character sounds.

I know traditional dnd games tend to have someone take up a 'leadership' role for some sense of cohesion. this can be as simple as someone who is the designated tie breaker in group voting or the person who is to be blindly listened to when bickering starts so as to promote constant forward motion

I've never liked the tradition, even if I understand it, and often disagree with the notion of needing it. this is largely a knee jerk more than anything at this point.

I'm sorry for being so quick to react with contrary.

If it does come down to deciding in-game leadership, I just ask that we dont actually make it hierarchal in nature. none of that domineering type stuff, that is. I'm ex-military and hate seeing absolution, authoritarianism, or such like things. Strong difference is fine but just nothing like 'do what I say or suffer' kind of things. please. I also have had bad luck with people in dnd games just taking on those roles even if no one gave them that, not the gm or the group, so I will also recognize I'm probably over-sensitive to it and will try to overcompensate for this by ignoring more than I feel I should... if it happens.
I know thats kind of session zero talk and I joined a little late so I do understand if some of all this session zero like talk annoys someone.

And now I'm starting to ramble...

and apologizing a lot...

XD I'm going to just stop writing this post now.

Never apologize for taking a stance unless it is just to argue. Dude I get it, but Lucian won't. This is partially what OOC is for. Explaining stances on subject x. With 12 of us I expect the leader role to rotate at any given time. Lucian is completely useless right now. Like a rock might be better. Bit of stretch but you get my point. Now doing investigation on the items themselves he might prove a bit more useful but I wouldn't count on it. I built him to tank and tank hard. But also to mobile.

  I purposefully avoided talk about leaders and what not because I prefer organic leadership roles. You listen because this person makes more sense than the other guy. First among equals ala The Companions from Skyrim.

  We do need some level of organization and not just in leadership. We are all trying to go in separate directions and in the long run it is going to cause something for someone sooner rather than later. Paladin is a natural leader role more times than not because of the way they perceive things. Lucian is a guy where Duty and Honor mean something. If in character you were to voice that opinion he would respect that. Paladins are capable of respecting others choices and dealing with that.
  Point being don't say sorry for having an option. If you feel the need to say sorry how about for not speaking up sooner? I nor Lucian are unfair or unreasonable. Unfortunately in real life I am more Paladin than I ever was a ranger. Maybe a bladesinger? Your entitled to your opinion, but that goes hand in hand with respecting others as well. Fair enough.

  Also I really had to do the whole bit. To much fun there for me. Bruce is one of my favorite actors. And Evil Dead 1 and 2 were hilarious.

Okay, so I'm dating myself here, but like the Sixties' rock group Manfred Mann. One of the members really was named Manfred Mann, but when the press interviewed them, they each took turns being Manfred Mann.

Re: 7: Hole In the Wall Pub (OOCs)
In most situations, I think Ozrus will opt to NOT take on a leadership role unless it is thrust upon him. He is more of a "go with the flow" kind of guy. As long as his group's leader is semi-competent and isn't giving obviously disastrous guidance, he will be happy to assist with their overall plan as best as he can. He'll still offer his own insights and suggestions, but won't be mad if his ideas are not adopted into the overarching plan.

Basically, Ozrus will be a good helper, but not a great leader.

Re: 7: Hole In the Wall Pub (OOCs)
Lucien, as a fellow player I would ask that you respond to ic posts, in the ic sections, with ic posts. that purely ooc reply, in the ic space, to kurat's ic statement kind of bothers me.

but, as emphasized in the start of this post, this is just a fellow player asking.

As a fellow player my response is this. I will think about it. And that is fair. Seeing as Lucien was already gone at that point it didn't make sense to post IC.

een sick for the past week. Nothing serious, just a seasonal cold where my whole body aches, I take the usual meds, and then all I feel like doing is laying around in bed all day. It's still hanging on which is why I'm posting this.

Thanks for the update! All my games have been pretty slow this time of year, so it hasn't been much of an issue for me anyway. Hope you feel better soon!

I hope you get well, I have other friends that have the COVID here on rpol and hope they are able to get well as well. Make sure you get tested if you haven't. One friend was hospitalized about 2 weeks before Christmas.
