Chronicles of the Silver Rose Company

Game Master Patrick Curtin

This campaign is my attempt to play a canonical Planescape campaign using the updated Pathfinder ruleset. The game actually predates the release of Pathfinder, but we have managed to update as we have needed.

Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

I totally understand going invite-only, Pat. I had to do that for my game a while back because it was just too much. I'm going to have to open it up again soon at least for a while, but I keep putting it off because it's such a hassle. :P
And that's with just one game to run!*

*Disclaimer: that's one unlimited number of player characters open world/sandbox style game, so it's more like running several games in one so I'm well aware that saying it's 'just one game' is totally misleading. :)

Even with that, I can't even comprehend being involved in as many games as you are, Shadow. I don't know where you find the time! :)

Yeah I tried to play in your Agartha game and I literally couldn't keep track of the different plot lines. Kudos to you!

THIS! Though I've never tried to play in it.

I've bounced around that Thread Iynora, impressive as all hell! Literally the largest game by players, by posts and by ambition!

Impressive... Most Impressive :-)

Thanks. :)

Basically, I'm totally insane at this point from keeping track of all the various major and minor plots. :P

And the massiveness of it is the main thing I lose new players to. I've gotten a little better at coaching people through the beginning where it's overwhelming and making sure they know that they don't have to follow everything, just their own character's stuff. But it's definitely it's own special kind of crazy. I tried starting another campaign twice, but I just have no headspace left over at this point. I've had to start keeping a little notebook with notes for myself so I don't forget stuff now too. I used to be able to keep it all in my head, but at some point it reached critical mass. :)

Well, you have a standing invite if you ever decide you want to try it out. The first hit's free! ;P

I actually learned most of what I know about PBP GMing from you, Pat. Seriously, thank you for that. It's definitely a very different style from a live game, and observing how you handled the differences really sped up the learning curve a lot for me.

Thanks, I appreciate that. I'll revisit the invite after I get my Ruins of Azlant game up and running, still lots to do to get that massive endeavor off of the ground...

Aww. Thanks. I think we both learned a lot coming out of the old OTD game (which was the ancestor of Agartha iirc), and how to play and interact characters without a lot of rule structure

Oh, definitely. That's why Agartha games have such a sandbox structure, really. But we had to add more structure back in when we started the Avalon game because we were bringing in a lot of new people, and a lot of what I learned from playing in this game influenced that. Credit where credit's due and all that. :)

Well, it is time to say goodbye to this game. I've had fun and hope to see you guys on the boards.

DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

So, my long-suffering players:

I was a bit over-optomistic about my engaement level when it came to these last few weeks on Cape Cod. Things got so bad I even forgot about the NecroNomicon in Providence this weekend (which I was looking forward too-just got overwhelmed with work and moving)

I am going to try and keep you all updated, BUT

I am travelling into in partibus infidelium soon. Very soon. Like a week.

I had no earthly idea how I could have so much crap.

I am packing solo, and still working a full compliment of days up until I leave.

Please please please pardon me. I beg your indulgence as I try and rip out of my cocoon and take flight. Honsetly I don't know if things will be settled out until October.

I will attempt to keep you posted, but I felt I should give you a heads up anyway.

Thanks for the heads up Patrick.


Oh Patrick, the only online friend I know whose schedule is crazier than mine!

(Although I suspect there are many others in our boat!) ;)

No problem here Pat, have 'fun' packing/ moving. ;P

We'll wait! Just be sure to peek in ONCE in a while, just to let us know that your ok!

Best of luck with the new job!
(I need to start looking for one of those too,...) :/


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Sooooooo .....

Taking a bit longer for me to get settled

I am moving closer to returning to posting

Thank you all for you patience!


Happy Monkey = HAppy gamers! ;)

Take your time Pat, a new job is even harder to get rolling than a new PbP. Sounds like your doing great!
