Hi Hiram! Yes I'm here, if somewhat sporadically. Been sick the past several days and still recovering. I swear, I've been sick more this winter/spring than I've been since my wife stopped teaching middle-school. Of course, it probably doesn't help that my oldest child is in first grade this year, so we're getting exposed to everything that goes through the school system again...
Honestly, I have picked up so many games that if this one started really going quickly again, my head might explode. For my part, I rather enjoy the sporadic nature of this game, the pacing is fine by me.
If it did pick up, though, that'd be OK, too, humor aside.
You guys are all great to play with, some of the best on the boards.
Hey All! Sorry for the prolonged absence.
You've all hit the nail on the head - a combination of burn-out as Euron suggested, getting involved as a player in (probably too many!) PbPs, the fact that it's easier to make a quick post or two as a player rather than put together meaningful DM posts as Tal said, plus a crazy-busy summer in general. I'm just so thankful that you all are so patient and understanding and willing to put up with the sporadic pace of this PbP. You all really are the best players on these boards!
Now with that said, patience such as yours should be rewarded. If you don't mind I'm going to fast forward the IC thread by a day or so tomorrow to get you all back to Oleg's - get ready to level up!
Thanks again, folks!
It is with a heavy heart that I must tender my resignation from this game.
I have had a death in the family recently, and I have to take some significant time to deal with the outcome of this both emotionally, and with its impact on my life.
Thank you all for such a great game, and I wish you all a great game.
Thank you once again,
We'll definitely miss you Hiram/Berwick.. hope you return again some day.

Sorry I haven't responded sooner. The thread didn't dot for me and I didn't see that you had posted. Weird.
As usual, you all have my sincere apologies for letting this slide yet again. October through December were absolutely crazy work-wise, as I gather they were for most of you as well. Things seem to be returning to a more managebable pace (although still busy), and I'd really like to pick this back up and at least get you all through the end of Kingmaker 1. However, I would totally understand if you all would prefer to just call it here. I'll leave it to you all, and I'll be happy with whatever you decide.
As I stated in the PMs I sent earlier today, I'm finally in a position to revive our Kingmaker PbP (again!). I'd like to have a group of at least four together before we pick back up. So far I've received positive responses from Talomyr (Karthas), Wakedown (Euron), and Sunset (Tyr), although Sunset will be bringing in a new character as Tyr is playing in a differenct Kingmaker campaign now. Nazard (Eseldra) is bowing out due to other commitments, and I haven't heard back from Navior (Cinders) yet. Berwick (Hiram) still appears to be incommunicado from the Paizo boards, and Jeremiziah (Jamison) doesn't appear to be reachable by PM so I'm going to send him an e-mail.
So the question for Talomyr, Wakedown, and Sunset is this: If none of the others are available to return, do you all want to continue on? We'd need to recruit at least one or two more players. If you can think of anyone in particular that you would like to invite, that would be great!
Looking forward to getting our game back in gear. Best regards!
Looks like I need to put this thread back into my RSS reader!
Let's see Nazard passed and Berwick is MIA.
I'm good with giving Navior and Jeremiziah some more time to respond. I just peeked at both their aliases and they are active in other PbPs.
Five is a good sized party. Strangely balanced, too.
Okay, I've opened up recruitment in this thread.
Sunset will be switching out Tyr for Suny, an elf barbarian/magus (titan mauler/kensai). Tal and Wakedown, since we're sort of hitting the re-set button with new folks coming in, if there's modifcations you would like to make to Karthas and Euron to take advantage of any race/class features from the APG, UM, or UC please feel free to do so now.
Also, the new incoming characters will be equipped with 3,000 gp-worth of gear. By my notes Euron currently has about 1,000 gp-worth of gear, and Karthas has about 3,400 gp-worth (including the new masterwork greatsword, although the majority of Karthas' wealth is taken up by the Boots of Elvenkind [2,500 gp purchase value]). Euron, please feel free to purchase an additional 2,000 gp-worth of gear to have the equivalent of the new characters. Karthas, if you would like to trade out the Boots of Elvenkind for something else, feel free to do so as well.
Any questions, just ask!
I was thinking about what our three most needed.
With two melee barbarians and a melee druid, I'd think we're in most need of an arcanist (ala Cinders or Eseldra).
After that, a ranged character/archer - which could be a ranged paladin, inquisitor, ranger, bard, etc.
Obviously, I'd throw all these preferences away to grab awesome character concepts with dedicated players. :)
Karthas, if you would like to trade out the Boots of Elvenkind for something else, feel free to do so as well.
Think I'll leave Karthas as is. Thought about switching out the boots for a +1 Greatsword, but then remembered he had made good use of the boots to the tune of a 30+ Acrobatics check to jump and kill an eidolon earlier in the game.
