    Crap, lost my subscription here for some reason! Now it's reclaimed, and posting will commence.

    Will black suffice for Benedict?

    I'm a little jumpy, already lost 2 ToHs at this stage due to GM disappearance, but usually a week off to begin with is a bad sign.

    Well one could PM him to poke for a reaction...

    That said, Ponies said this game would be one he'd "try to update weekly", so there's that, and besides I am quite confident in his ability to GM, given he's run PbPs in the past already and is generally an experienced Playgrounder.

    Apologies for the lack of communication on my end. It's been a busy week between work, an unexpected death in our church, and spending time w/ the Mrs (gotta keep those priorities straight ). I hope to keep both games updated at a more regular clip. In the past I've used a quick line in my signature to update all games if I'll be AFK; I'll try to do that again. Peep the games in my sig, though...I pride myself on not DMing unless I anticipate being able to keep a game running for a year or more.

    Darn, sorry for the death. And thanks for committing yourself here :)

    Also I might not have been clear given Xhosant's answer to Bando's actions: Bando's recursive trap searching includes examining the door as well for a potential trapped handle, etc.

    Oh, no, I mean, he sounded certain that we'll disarm all traps and go to the right door. Just because the left door was a trap doesn't mean the right door isn't.

    Aah gotcha. My bad. Well, now we know the doors aren't trapped. So we go right?

    Yeah, I went all-in on Truespeak. This is one of the most heavily optimized characters I've ever built for an actual game, but it's all devoted to making Truenaming work, so I actually don't know if it'll be enough. My DC's can get into the non-guaranteed range pretty fast once I start tossing out Quickened Empowered Extended Utterances against high-CR creatures or start stacking up the Law of Resistance.

    Well, not entirely. If the rumours are true, the stuff we broke were much, much more than that. We just upgraded it to that.

    Sorry, been busy for a while.

    How so?

    I have my human bonus, but that is negated by my -1 int modifier.
    Class skills are 2+int/level....oh yeah, added and updated.
