A storm over Tethyr

@ Duvall and Landon:

Spoiler:
For the beginning of the adventure, seeing as you are both members of the church, here's what I'd like to have happen: the other five party members are going to be responding to a summons from the church of Helm. The two of you are going to be in Bertram's office, waiting to meet your new companions. You may miss a little roleplaying in the courtyard as a result, but you'll have time in the office to get to know your new friends.


You know, finding a map of Tethyr which doesn't suck, and doesn't incorporate the later ridiculous story elements they grafted into the setting, is proving quite difficult. God forbid, but I might have to draw one myself....

Hey DM

Can you cut and paste all the info about Tethyr into the Campaign Info tab for easy reference later on?


@ Hezar: Will do!


Male Human Inquisitor 2 / Paladin 1 | Init +3 | Per+7 | AC 23/21/12 | HP 33/33 | For +7 | Ref +1 | Will +7

I plan on having London take a level or two in paladin


Here's an example of the battle maps we'll be using. I know, I know; they are lavish and beautifully illustrated. But they're quite useful and utilitarian. Take a look:

Link here


Here's a map of Tethyr that isn't entirely crappy. "Darromar" is, of course, Ithmong. There's also plenty of little places noted; try and pay them no mind. The map is basically just to give you an idea of the locations of the important places. It's also missing some places, but it will do for now.

You sir are an aritst! LOL Works for me.

I was just turned onto this free program if you want to try playing around with it.

Though the spreadsheet is probably easier to move things around on.

thanks for putting all the in the info, glad to reread it now that i know who i am.

Cant wait to fight the dragon.

And shotgun on Argrum's bow! Sounds like a Human Bane longbow to me.

lol.

I really cannot wait to get started folks.

The gameplay thread is open - looks like there's a post for your adventurers to read....

Everyone except Landon and Duvall may begin to post. At this point, individual reactions are probably best. I'll have you assemble in the courtyard of Helm's temple shortly, where your characters can meet one another for the first time, unless you wqant your characters to have met before.

great. I am boarding another international plane in 30 minutes. But I will post until I board.


Hope you have a good flight, Vuvu! As for everyone else posting: I'm not sure they expected the thread to be open until tomorrow. :-)


Male Moon Elf Ranger1(Deep Walker)

I'll have Ari all finished by tonight, I hope.

Quick question, are you going to bring regional languages into play, and if so, can we take some at the start of the game?


@ Janiries - regional languages are fine; as long as the principal players all know common, and thus can communicate, then additional languages are up to you. As for how much they will come into play: most people in the realms, when confronted with a mixed group, such as adventurers, will almost always default to common. Some may speak their own languages; wouldn't hurt to know em, so you can figure out what they're saying about the foreigners...


Male Mountain man Woodsman Bard/ 4

Campaign info page is killer! Thanks for doing that. I'll scrounge around and see if I have an old map of Tethyr - likely it will not be something you haven't already seen, but I'll look anyway.

Safe travels, Vuvu!


Male Dwarf Fighter/4, HP 48/48 perc +2, init +1, fort +9 ref +3 will +4

might want some spoilers on that info page for organization sake, yeah?


I'm waiting on Ariael Lafali to check in so I can advance the plot ... I'm going to wait until tomorrow morning to see what happens. Beginnings are such delicate times :-(

I've been holding Duvall and Landon in reserve as well, seeing as they are members of the church, they'll be introduced shortly. Thanks for holding on guys!


Male Human Inquisitor 2 / Paladin 1 | Init +3 | Per+7 | AC 23/21/12 | HP 33/33 | For +7 | Ref +1 | Will +7

no problem


Male Human Inquisitor 2 / Paladin 1 | Init +3 | Per+7 | AC 23/21/12 | HP 33/33 | For +7 | Ref +1 | Will +7

I've added a bit of background info for you to peruse DM


I had been hoping to have you guys on the road yesterday, but we're still missing the participation of one of our players. I'm going to wait a bit longer and then proceed without Elur's player having taken part in the courtyard scene.

I know things haven't been super exciting thus far, but setting up a story and recurring characters isn't a simple process. A big part of the success of a PbP is the participation of the players, not just the efforts of the GM. The fact is, you folks are going to get out of the game what you put into it. When you show me that you're interested and engaged, it interests and engages me as well, and we all get a better game as a result.

Anyways, I'll wait till tomorrow morning before having you set off.


Male Mountain man Woodsman Bard/ 4

So far so good - this game has already had more posts that some pbp's I've played in. :)


Male Human Inquisitor 2 / Paladin 1 | Init +3 | Per+7 | AC 23/21/12 | HP 33/33 | For +7 | Ref +1 | Will +7

Its okay, we can just use the time to RP in the courtyard while we wait.


Female Ifrit Scorcerer 1

Sorry guys, just finished a really rough work week. And I work in a residential mental health facility, so rough, means really rough. Shouldn't be a common occurrence though, we just had some schedule changes and the clients gaff a really rough time adjusting. Things shouldbe much better from now on, and I should have apost up in the hour.


Male Mountain man Woodsman Bard/ 4

I worked in mental health in 1990 - I lasted about 9 months; I had to get out before I went IN!


Female Ifrit Scorcerer 1

Lol, yeah that sounds about right. I've only been working here since June, but even the good days'll get to you if your not careful.


Male Dwarf Fighter/4, HP 48/48 perc +2, init +1, fort +9 ref +3 will +4

welcome back, in any case.

like magic watching the battle map change!

ok I am going to get some sleep, early flight in the morning. If it does come to combat and you need to bot me

I have knowledge nature +6 if it matters, and will use my height to get clean shots of things, trying to move within 30 ft but not leaving the elevatd area.

If I must switch to longspear first, then handaxe, only if the situation is desperate.

If a swarm comes I have two acid flasks

I suspect I will get another post in before I leave, but wanted this info to be here if needed.


Male Moon Elf Ranger1(Deep Walker)

Hey guys, sorry I haven't posted in a bit, I work at a local grocery store, and was called in special to work this weekend. I will get caught up later tonight and reply. Again sorry!

ok folks I am going my two days worth of airports again starting today. I will post as I can from airports during layovers and will be back on Pacific time on Monday PST.


I'm looking at the game thread today and only two people besides myself have posted. I'm wondering if the American Thanksgiving holiday is somehow responsible? If it's more convenient I can temporarily suspend the game until after the weekend, as long as everyone promises to return :-)


Male Dwarf Fighter/4, HP 48/48 perc +2, init +1, fort +9 ref +3 will +4

its not interfering with me, though I am in the USA. I think the time zone difference is just making me look bad, lol. My schedule is not typical for my area or time zone. not stallin on purpose, I promise.


Male Moon Elf Ranger1(Deep Walker)

I've been at work all day, which is a local large supermarket. Not only are people getting ready for thanksgiving, a fair amount are still recovering from hurricane Sandy.


Male Human Inquisitor 2 / Paladin 1 | Init +3 | Per+7 | AC 23/21/12 | HP 33/33 | For +7 | Ref +1 | Will +7

I'm good for whatever pace you want. I'm Canadian so it not a holiday for me. Only this is I work 12hrs, 6 days a week so I usually can only post at night.


Female Sun Elf Rogue 4

As a British person, I'm fine with whatever. As you may have noticed, I can post frequently!


Male Mountain man Woodsman Bard/ 4

I checked in this morning before heading to work and am just now getting back to the computer. For the next 2-3 days, it will be the same with Thanksgiving and family in town. I see there are 25 posts in the game thread I haven't read yet!

sporadic posting for me today, due to thanksgiving. DM please bot me as needed. Hezar will continue to fire to protect the prisoner. When it is getting to the end he will fire blunt arrows non lethal to try to take one alive.

happy tgiving americans! and canadians and brits you can be in on the fun too!!


Thanks! Happy thanksgiving to you and yours, Hezar! And for Gods' sake, be careful if you go out for black friday sales tomorrow - I've heard horror stories about crazy stampeding crowds!


Female Sun Elf Rogue 4

I shall be enjoying Thanksgiving by watching some American Football and eating some sandwiches. Hope you Americans enjoy it!


Female Ifrit Scorcerer 1

As for me, I work later today (3 to midnight PST). I have my first turn up, but if you need to, you can bot me as well. At this point I'll probably just attack with elemental ray unless they come in close. Then I'll probably do something like shocking grasp with a fire descriptor.

Araiel can have the bow if he wants it. I cant use the +2 bow


Male Mountain man Woodsman Bard/ 4

Don't forget we have a "white wand" - any idea what that is?


Male Moon Elf Ranger1(Deep Walker)

You can use the +2 Bow, but will suffer a -2 penalty to attacks.

What style do you plan on going? If Archery, take the +1 for now.

I had mistakenly thought you could use a composite longbow normally, without a penalty, and just not deal full damage.

I am going archery


I'm out of action today guys - three meetings and a networking group tonight. I'll post again tomorrow morning - didn't want anyone to think I had disappeared! Just hang around the campfire and we'll get you on the road tomorrow - should be able to hit the Stendar estate if you push them horses....


Male Human Inquisitor 2 / Paladin 1 | Init +3 | Per+7 | AC 23/21/12 | HP 33/33 | For +7 | Ref +1 | Will +7

RL > Games man. Try not to get too bored in those meetings, I hear getting caught sleeping can be bad. Lol


Female Ifrit Scorcerer 1

All of my finals are today, so that's probably the only post I'll get in today.
