    Yep, absolutely - soon as I've got a second. :)

    Hey, everyone! I think I'll go with GREEN in terms of colours. Now, about those armchairs…

    Welcome indeed to all of you!

    So the first question I suppose I have is: would you prefer we skipped introductions and just put the party together immediately as if you'd basically just met Ramiro and Njal, or would you prefer something more organic? I can come up with vignettes for each person to orient you in the world, and we can take it from there if you wish, or it can just be a case of 'you all meet in a tavern at sunset and things start from there.'

    Either way, it may also be worth indicating how frequently people can post. The pace here is not frenetic, but I would like to keep a certain momentum forward if only so recent history at least stays sort-of in mind. So. Over to you. What's your preferences here?

    1. I always prefer organic, if that's not too much hassle; and
    2. I spend an inordinate amount of time here on the forum. Whatever the pace, I should be able to keep up.

    Seconding organic, especially for a unique campaign world like this one.

    As for posting, as noted in the recruiting thread I'm in a heavy work crunch and life overall is not great. Realistically may be able to post a few times a week, but it'll be fairly thin to start out with.

    I do have a background and life goals for Etti, just haven't had the mental bandwidth to write them out yet.

    Now that I'm back (and decompressing) safely from a crowded Thanksgiving obligation (more importantly, I HAVE INTERNET What kind of hellholevacation getaway doesn't have internet?!), my 2 coppers is also for organic meet-up.

    Likewise, I'm on here daily and will do my damnedest to warn ahead of time if I'm away on vacation or the like.

    Not that I can cast it yet, but I do have enough funds for diamond dust for Restoration spells (for now)

    No worries! You didn't make us all ask for the cool-but-complicated entrée and, more importantly, due to your location tag, we're well aware how dangerous it is for you to cross the great deserts with all those Gargantuan marsupial mopnstrous spiders everywhere that isn't controlled by the emu junta.

    I have a hard deadline this weekend, so immensely crunched right now. May try posting late tonight if my brain isn't too melted.

    On the bright side, nothing like researching Bronze Age Scandinavia to give me some ideas for this.

    Survived weekend deadline. Utterly wiped out yesterday, recovering today. Will try to pick up with Etti when brain is less melty, later today if possible.

    Time to get lost in the new place! (I kind of assumed Gerlin knows the approximate location of the neighbourhood around the guildhouse; I hope that's not an issue.)

    Not a problem - or alternatively, Gerlin has enough wherewithal to ask her way in its direction.

    Cool, lots of different simultaneous strands! I haven't had to juggle like this since I left the old boards.theforce.net forums getting on 10 years ago - over there there's virtually no system-based RPGs, it's all freeform and frequently people going off in individual directions.

    Either way, I know people are time-poor and we all went to get to the bits that refer to our characters ASAP (or don't want to spoil ourselves on what's happening in other parts of town our characters can't see) - so if people want a more quick, visible way of scrolling down to posts or sections that concern their characters, let me know - I can look at different colours for the sections that refer to your characters, for example.

    I've seen worse, and on this forum! (We had these crazy commoner game where the five characters all ended up doing their own thing with only two of them in the same settlement and only four of them in the same extensive fief, with one of them on the way out with a load of fantasy drugs.)

    I'm fine as is.

    Ah, wall of text, my old special attack! (Also, don't worry; I reckon it's that season for most, if not all of us.)

    Hey there, wanted to check in.

    I am still interested in actually getting Etti started, finally, but life and etc. continue to bear me down.

    Also, I feel like I have to study to catch up on the lore and situate myself in the world. This isn’t in itself a negative, since I love the idea of entering a well-developed campaign setting…but in some corner of my mind it ends up being an obstacle.

    So, so, so. Still very interested, but need a bit more time to spin up.

    All good, Palanan, just check in when you can/feel inclined. :)

    Also, sorry about delays on my end everyone, it's been a really stressful Christmas/New Years/back to work season all round. Will have something through shortly.

    ... you're a third party publisher who got an OGL 1.1 ultimatum from Lizards of the Coast? :D

    Would it be fair to assume that Ramiro and Njal hear about this altercation the next day?
