    Default Legends of the Living Storm: The Three Beacons (OOC)

    Hi, guys! Your loyal DM here. As requested, here's the OOC thread! Now let's get down to brass tacks.

    For now, don't worry about talking to each other more than a couple remarks - the guards will, once all of you have posted, open the gates and lead you somewhere you guys can actually chat and establish how well you guys know each others' stories.

    So much excitemeeent!

    Whisper will talk in Dim Grey.

    Edit: *squints* Do we know who will arrive at the palace gates or is it a strange coincidence that everyone knows Whisper on sight? I didn't get the memo

    Well seeing as we are sort of famous I figured we all at least recognised eachother. Either from meeting eachother, drawings or a description from the stories told about us. 😄

    And a Half Drow with braids, a burn scar above the ear and a crooked grin how many of those are around? 😉

    On the other hand you do have your hood lowered so maybe it was actually a bit hard to see it was you sorry!

    Sarlus will speak in Saddle brown.

    As a note, if you're ever waiting to move me along, feel free to puppet me. I plan on posting daily (at least once!) but I'd be happier knowing I won't hold things up if something comes up and I make you wait for a few hours.

    Aside from adding all the spell descriptions - a daunting task! - I think Orden's sheet is ready. Please let me know if there are any errors!

    Also, I was waiting for a link to the IC thread and it didn't occur to me to just go look for it. :P

    If we're doing text colors, I suppose Orden will speak in fire brick!

    Funny, that's exactly what I did. I didn't want to say anything because I didn't want to be the only dummy who missed the IC link.

    You know what, I'm going the nearly completely blank knowledge route. It works with Whisper being too removed from everything outside the Underdark to know anything but tidbits. Much more fun to find out this way! I think she might have heard of whatever Sarlus did though, if maybe not yet that he specifically was involved.

    Also, to forego more confusion, I'm adding a note in her description that her face tends to be covered below the nose if she feels out of place

    Hello, all. I'm sorry I haven't gotten around to this yet, but there are two reasons why I wasn't able to. First, I've been having troubles with my computer, so I've only been able to post with my phone lately. Problem is, I'm not very good with Google Docs on my phone, so I haven't been able to write up the character sheet the way we're supposed to. Second reason is that I never actually got the email you'd meant to send, Monolilith, so I haven't been able to get the background parts figured out.

    So, once I've figured those out, I'll have my character sheet posted. Will will try to post IC before that, though, and Silvarel Kaenthe will speak in this.

    Yikes! Really? If you need to use Mythweavers, you can, I understand. Google Docs is a real... meanie on phones.

    I'll resend the email. Hope it goes through!

    Alright, if Mythweavers works I'll get started on one soon. The character in general is almost complete, I just need to finish a few more things.

    And I got the email this time, so thank you.

    My impression is that we are still waiting on Sicarius. We can make small talk in the meantime.

    Yeah, I didn't want to leave Sicarius in the dust, so I've been waiting for them to enter the scene. I know I always feel a little put out whenever a new game really takes off before I can start posting. Granted that's usually just like, a day of super eager players posting three pages of conversation while I'm asleep. But still. :P

    If we're worried about losing momentum, I'll keep Orden in the small talk for the meantime.

    EDIT:Heh, nevermind! XD

    Sorry for the stressing! I was just worried that this dies before it could take off, especially after looking so forward to it! I totally didn't want to leave Sicarius behind, that' why I asked. But all is good then

    Apologies for the slight delay in posting again, folks! I was, like... superbly sick. Incredibly sick. I am still sick. Please end my suffering.

    But the Lady of Light will grace y'alls with her presence shortly! And then the fun begins. Hope you all like overelaborate descriptions.

    Love it. Thats what I love about the group we have as well. Everyone putting a lot of effort in their posts and really making it a story instead of some hack and slash.
    Would be cool to have some room for small talk every now and then with eachother in the future as well.

    Are you kidding? I live for overelaboration. Bring it on!

    Also, hope you feel better soon, dude. Been struggling with an almost-sort-of-cold myself that my immune system barely seems to be managing to fight off. Like, I feel drained like I've been sick but symptoms are minimal. It's weird.

    While I'm often not comfortable enough to do it myself, I as well rather enjoy elaborate exposition like this. It makes things interesting.

    Also, I'm really starting to feel good about this game. I haven't started off a game with a roll as good as my Arcana one in years.

    I'm so okay with the elaboration. It really gets me into the scene and the atmosphere, it's great. As a Critical Role fan, I just imagine Matt Mercer describing the scene, heh (the high noon had me chuckle). I love that we all put much thought into the posting too, feels like some nice investment!
    And get better soon, everyone!

    I feel like I should mention this, by the way, since I'm not sure when or if it'll come up but it seems like something everyone would know, since Kirinen likes to tell raunchy jokes and often references it? The High Star is a lesbian! She likes girls. Don't get too excited, though, she has a canonical love interest that I'm not wavering from - and this romance is hardly the focus of the Three Beacons campaign, and you'll only really have time to get interesting with each other if that's a route you want to explore. Food for thought!

    Don't have to tell me twice.

    Or even once, I suppose. I was already thinking about all of that. Not even deliberately, either; it's basically just instinct for me at this point.

    Also, I hadn't noticed that this background system only gave one skill proficiency. So if what I'd mentioned in my latest email is alright, I'd drop the Survival proficiency and just go with Nature.

    I'm cool with whatever, Whisper is too. She certainly cares little about gender, though if Kirinen is as raunchy as everyone says she is, I think Whisper might be more of the 'sit back and be amused sort' until she's the center of attention, heh.

    And thanks for the update on Drow culture, that makes things clearer!
