Wikia. (http://juliensdiamond.wikia.com)

It seemed to me that the players agreed to all know each other prior to the start of the game. If there is anybody who didn't want to be a part of that initial group, say so, and the players will meet you in the town.

Also, I forget, can we use other books for PrCs? Just wondering because depending if we can will determine what feat I take next.

Is your character sheet on the wiki dr.epic?

No, sorry. Only DMG PrCs, excluding the Red Wizard.

2012-11-18, 10:01 PM
Red Wizard to complicated then?

sdream
2012-11-19, 12:26 PM
Yeah I was rushing to post between tasks at work.

I wanted to protray her as friendly and unsuspicious, although I think I might have overstepped her "let the humans negotiate with humans" policy.

I'm going to say she thinks the house belongs to a fey or other non-human, to explain why it popped up suddenly, and also say she likes meeting humans one on one, she has just had bad experiences with them in groups.

(This melds her humanophile nature with her elven outsiderishness)

Cranthis
2012-11-19, 08:14 PM
My characters (and mine) curiosity has been peaked.

Edit: Argh, I need to know whats up with this house now haha.

Dr.Epic
2012-11-22, 01:31 AM
So is anyone gonna post in the IC thread sometime soon?

OrchestraHc
2012-11-22, 01:57 AM
It would either need to be cranthis, who hasn't responded ic yet, or the DM, who is probably waiting for Cranthis.

It is thanksgiving, some people might be at their families houses or busy.

Cranthis
2012-11-22, 02:32 AM
I was waiting on the dm, to tell me if there is a back entrance and whatnot. And I assume he is busy with Family and such.

sdream
2012-11-22, 07:41 AM
Damnable holiday is interfering with all my games... even the one I run for my little brother.

But yeah, if kel doesn't find a good reason to invade the house we should move on.

Cranthis
2012-11-22, 08:43 AM
You guys can feel free to move on without me. I can easily catch up after I check things out.

sdream
2012-11-22, 09:43 AM
We can't really go anywhere without the DM either :)

Cranthis
2012-11-22, 10:10 AM
True, very true. Kelsier will probably end up robbing the place. :smallbiggrin:

Dr.Epic
2012-11-24, 04:01 AM
So I just realized: did I ever state Flick's gender? I'm just wondering if I can get away with retconing Flick's sex. I mean, what's really happened in the campaign?

Kaiisaxo
2012-11-24, 03:13 PM
There is only one post where Flick's gender is explicit and it 's yours, it would be trivially easy, and I don't mind it at all. In fact it creates an interesting situation. And it makes this :


"Don't worry. I'll use my natural charms to learn everything we need to know."
a little funnier.

Dr.Epic
2012-11-24, 07:33 PM
There is only one post where Flick's gender is explicit and it 's yours, it would be trivially easy, and I don't mind it at all. In fact it creates an interesting situation.

I'll do two portraits of Flick: one male and one female and you guys can decide which is better. Although if we find a girdle of masculinity/femininity there will be no need for that.

No way! Flick is one sexy SEXY half elf, and they're gonna let their 16 charisma stand out!

Cranthis
2012-11-25, 08:19 AM
Flick continues to stand there and contemplates Flick's sexual identity.

Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha (Had to add a few extra ha's, 10 character limit and all.)

So it's been like a week, Thanksgiving is long past, where the heck is our DM!?!?

OrchestraHc
2012-11-27, 01:44 PM
Would one of us like to PM him.

Dr.Epic
2012-11-27, 03:39 PM
Would one of us like to PM him.

My PM box has 96 messages. Could someone with more space please do it?

sdream
2012-11-27, 04:31 PM
I messaged.... and Vilpich replied RL had been crazy for him and he'd post in OOC soon.

Empedocles
2012-11-28, 05:39 PM
Really, really sorry guys. I honestly completely forgot about this...but as sdream said, RL sort of went to hell for me for awhile. I could pick this back up if you want, or look for a new DM at least.

Again, I'm sorry.

sdream
2012-11-28, 05:43 PM
I'd love to play, but finding a new DM is a nigh onto doomed process.

Do you think you could continue or is RL likely to keep ambushing you?

Dr.Epic
2012-11-29, 10:04 PM
I'd love to play, but finding a new DM is a nigh onto doomed process.

I've seen instances where this has worked. Really, I hope it doesn't come to this, but I do want to keep playing.

OrchestraHc
2012-11-30, 01:09 PM
I would prefer to keep you as DM if it's okay. I don't have any experience with getting a new DM, but if that's what we have to do.

Dr.Epic
2012-12-04, 06:39 PM
So, anyone interested in finding a new DM?

sdream
2012-12-04, 06:44 PM
I'm unterested in using the character. Would you like me to post a new thread?

OrchestraHc
2012-12-04, 07:13 PM
I certainly wouldn't mind searching for a new one if I got to keep this character.

You have my consent for whatever it's worth.

Dr.Epic
2012-12-04, 11:04 PM
I'm unterested in using the character. Would you like me to post a new thread?

Well I was going to, but whatever. Just someone do it if this is the route we're taking.

sdream
2012-12-05, 02:00 PM
I posted one here:

Mordae

Ladies and/or Gentlemen, a new suckerchallenger has stepped into the ring! I shall do what I can to bring new life to this effort. If you have any suggestions for what you want to see, feel free to let me know here or drop me a PM. In the meantime, I'm off to the IC thread to start the ball rolling in the +x direction.

If you are still here and reading, please roger up with a post below so I know how many players are good to go. I know sdream and Dr. Epic have posted in the recruitment thread already; are the other three of you quietly lurking in wait for me? :smalleek:

Cranthis
2012-12-06, 09:37 AM
Excellent. I am only disappointed that we were forced to leave the house alone.

OrchestraHc

Mordae
2012-12-07, 09:25 AM
I don't have access to Myth-Weavers from work, so at your convenience please edit your first post in the OOC thread to include a statblock including your basic combat information and major skills/feats/abilities for my reference during the day. Thanks!

Cranthis
2012-12-07, 09:44 AM
Not sure what major means to you.

Mordae
2012-12-07, 09:48 AM
Yeah, I should be more specific. As far as rolling goes, I tend to prefer letting you guys roll everything where you're making an active check or taking an action. I'll roll passive checks and reactions. This means I'd like to have as a handy reference:

Reflex, Fortitude, and Will saves
Initiative
Spot, Listen, Search, Move Silently, Hide, Bluff, Sense Motive, Diplomacy, Gather Information, Knowledge (x), Concentration

Thanks for asking. I find a good OOC conversation makes for a good game :smallsmile:

Cranthis
2012-12-07, 02:53 PM
I feel as if Search, Move Silently, Hide, and Bluff are active checks. But I did update it with all of what you asked.

Mordae
2012-12-07, 03:01 PM
I agree they are active. Usually, though, you don't know how effective you are at doing them... until the proverbial excrement hits the proverbial air moving device. :smalleek:

Dr.Epic
2012-12-10, 07:46 PM

Cool. Cool. Just was wondering where everyone was. I don't want the game to die.

Mordae
2012-12-11, 02:26 PM
Agreed; game death is bad!

For advance warning, my posting will be sporadic at best from December 22 to December 31. Probably similar for other people, but I want to get it out there to avoid any premature rumors of the game's demise! :smallbiggrin:

Seeing the latest of sdream's posts, I have laughed so hard I knocked my water over.

sdream
2012-12-12, 11:29 AM
I'm definitely enjoying my sword and sorcery vulcan.

Since we all (I think) set aside some money for a guard dog, but did not start with one, would you like to pursue that as our next IC goal?

I don't think Luna would be familiar with human domestic animals, nor does she have a good reason to ask about it. Otherwise Luna is happy to just explore the city aimlessly.

Kaiisaxo
2012-12-12, 02:05 PM
Looks like a noble goal to pursue, just not too sure about out motivation to get a dog.

sdream
2012-12-14, 09:42 AM
OOC - Track and scent, + an extra set of ears around the campfire at night.

IC - You want a dog?

Flick responds in Elvish "A bottle of Elven Wine sir."


"As you like," the keeper rejoins Flick amiably, "But I'm afraid I'll need to see your gold crown first. Hard times, you understand."

Okay.,.? I don't get it.:smallconfused:

Mordae
2012-12-17, 09:29 PM
Elven wine is expensive and he doesn't want to part with the bottle without knowing you have the money to pay for it.

Mordae
2012-12-20, 10:35 AM
Dr. Epic, can you please edit your statblock into your first OOC post? Please also include the following:

Reflex, Fortitude, and Will saves
Initiative
Spot, Listen, Search, Move Silently, Hide, Bluff, Sense Motive, Diplomacy, Gather Information, Knowledge (x), Concentration

I'm gonna slip out and check your character sheet by phone so I can keep things moving along.

Yes, lets go see if we want to stop a burning.

Mordae
2013-01-02, 10:26 AM
I shall proceed under the assumption that the party follows unless someone yells "NO!!!!" very soon.

sdream
2013-01-08, 11:05 AM
Bossa is still with us... do we still have Ann may and the two rogues?

Mordae
2013-01-09, 10:27 AM
I have PMed our mis(sing?)(creants?) :smallamused:

sdream
2013-01-10, 10:41 AM
Actual party members disappearing at least makes for a good hook.

Who knows, maybe they are even related.

Mordae
2013-01-10, 10:52 AM
Perhaps. Kaiisaxo has not been seen on site since before the new year. I know Dr. Epic is around, but like Cranthis I think the silence is representative of "I don't have anything to add at this point."

That and we ran off without Flick's discounted elvish wine... :smallfrown:

sdream
2013-01-10, 12:06 PM
Finding Flick might be as easy as backtracking to where he did NOT run off without his discounted wine then... but frankly I consider more than a couple days without a response a very bad sign for continued interest.

(here I am using interest in the "interested enough to actually play", rather than "I'm incredibly interested, but I'm not actually going to play")

Mordae
2013-01-10, 02:57 PM
I got a positive response from Dr.Epic, so I feel confident moving ahead with four.

Cranthis
2013-01-10, 09:18 PM
Any missingness on my part is what Mordae said, nothing to add yet :smallbiggrin:

Mordae
2013-01-15, 09:48 AM
I have sent one more PM to Kaiisaxo to inquire whether Ann will be continuing with you. In the interim, would you like me to hold fast or push the group along to the temple as Luna is planning?

sdream
2013-01-15, 11:21 AM
I'm not in a rush to get to the temple, I feel a seeking a missing party member is a far stronger and more realistic hook then jumping into the witch-hunt.

Maybe just give Dr. Epic some guidance about where he might have seen Ann go to from the Inn (did she follow us while he was still negotiating for discount wine, or did she stay behind talking with the card players).

Then we can go hunting for Ann.

If Kaisssaxo shows up, we can find her, if not, maybe we can find clues to the kidnappers.

Kaiisaxo
2013-01-27, 08:16 PM
Sorry guys, hadn't connected to the forum since last year. Normally it takes my a little while to ressume my posting on forums, but his time I got delayed more than normal.

Yawn, is this still running? anybody else out there?

Mordae
2013-05-01, 09:04 AM
If by "running" you mean "still in existence with the most inconsistent GM ever," then yes...

If by "running" you mean "a steady and predictable pace with courteous pacing," then no. :smallredface:

All aspects of life went to hell for a couple of months, but there is stability for now. And if you're here and want to play, I will do my best.

sdream
2013-05-17, 10:36 AM
I've been gone as well, but popped back onto the forums to officially announce retirement in my two subscribed threads.

I just have too much going on elsewhere to continue here (thankfully most of it good, great even, to make this enjoyable (if slow) thread the lesser option.)
