Tales of piracy, power struggles, and treachery on the high seas. Are there any that can turn their fallen luck to real pirate gold?

Sorry guys; having some issues on the home front. Posting will be slow over the next few days/weekend.


Male Gillman Aberrant-bloodline Sorcerer/2nd

One my other pbp threads undotted itself. I'm posting to make sure this one hasn't done so as well.


Male Human Fighter (Corsair)/2

What does that mean? Probably a stupid question.


Male Gillman Aberrant-bloodline Sorcerer/2nd

It stopped indicating that there were new posts in the thread. It's referred to as "dotting" because the board used to put a black dot next to the thread in addition to the (# posts).

It's become a boardspeak slang term.

RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16, RPG Superstar 2012 Top 16

When yo upost in a thread, it puts a dot in front of it in the messageboard list, which lets you easily see threads you've posted in. It also means if you click on the "Focus" button, that thread will show up.

However, the dots sometimes disappear, which makes it difficult for people who use that method to find their PBP threads.


Male Human Fighter (Corsair)/2

AHH I am enlightened. Thanks lol


Male Human Taskmaster and Overlord / 10

Getting back, guys; sorry for the day. Rough week or so, but I'm catching up. I'll have us updated over the next day or so, and we can get back on track.


Female Human Alchemist (beastmorph) 1 / Gunslinger 1

New posts in the game thread (just a head's up in case I'm not the only one who didn't get a notification).

EDITED TO ADD:
No problem, GM. I was wondering why you were updating the other thread and not this one and suddenly realized what the problem is.

Hmm. If I give everyone food poisoning with the reefclaw, that could be a really easy way to take over the ship...


Male Human Taskmaster and Overlord / 10

Thanks for giving out the heads up, motteditor; I keep forgetting about the lack of dotting/notifications

Not much for me to do. Ben's abilities are fairly limited to picking things up and putting them down.

You can always try. You've got a 25 percent chance to make friends, and there's no harm in failing. Louly's not really got the social skills she needs either, but the more people we can get on our side the better. Of course, if Ben's just a bit more of a loner, definitely play him that way.


Male Gillman Aberrant-bloodline Sorcerer/2nd

You could challenge another member of the crew to a boxing, wrestling, or armwrestling match. Build a rep as someone too tough to risk messing with. Or, you could talk some smack, goad one of Scourge's lackeys into taking a swing at you, forcing Scourge to lash them or lose the respect of the crew.


Male Gillman Aberrant-bloodline Sorcerer/2nd

GM Rap: Can we assume that Sandara gets us fully healed, or do I need to turn on the ol' fishboy charm ;-)


Male Human Taskmaster and Overlord / 10

Indeed, Ben - keep in mind that there are several things you can do; the above are excellent suggestions, and it seems like there is always gambling or entertainment. If you're feeling particularly froggy, you could always attempt to sneak about the ship or open something that's locked, like the individual pirate lockers.

You can alwaya attempt to entertain some of the crew with a fine story of your reefclaw adventure, too.


Male Human Fighter (Corsair)/2

I want to stalk Jape and possibly find a way to remove him from the equation lol


Male Gillman Aberrant-bloodline Sorcerer/2nd

Ouch! A "1" on my stealth roll. I'll hold off on my day 3:rolls until I know what bad news is coming my way from that!


Female Human Alchemist (beastmorph) 1 / Gunslinger 1

Off to a wedding Saturday, so may have limited posting this weekend.


Male Gillman Aberrant-bloodline Sorcerer/2nd

Everyone okay?


According to recent reports I am indeed alive.


Male Human Taskmaster and Overlord / 10

Yup - sorry (again); trying to keep up, but RL has limited my time over the past few weeks.


No worries...life has dealt me a busy hand as well. I'm making good use of the downtime!


Male Human Fighter (Corsair)/2

Lol between work and school it's a wonder my brain hasn't been transformed into a mushy gray substance. No worries here either.


Male Gillman Aberrant-bloodline Sorcerer/2nd

GM Rap, I noticed you've updated the Runelords thread, but not this one the last couple of days. Are you waiting for one or more of us to post something before updating?

Not trying to be pushy, (I know you have real - life stuff going on) I'm just curious if there's anything we, as players, need to do to facilitate things.


Female Human Alchemist (beastmorph) 1 / Gunslinger 1

My *guess* is it's a lot more work to update this one -- three days worth of actions for all of us, with different characters to role-play means sitting down for a good hour-plus, if I had to guess -- whereas the Runelords is a quick little role-playing at the moment.

That said, I have a boat to take command of ...


Male Human Taskmaster and Overlord / 10

Indeed, it is. My apologies again...doing alot of that recently. I'll have us updated sometime today, after I take the kids to "Cornfusion."


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

Cornfusion, is like a Cornundrum


Male Gillman Aberrant-bloodline Sorcerer/2nd

No worries. Half my concern is the updates not showing up, then missing something or having to catch-up because the messageboard didn't indicate new posts.

I've seen that work against GMs also. The board doesn't indicate new updates, so they figure their players haven't posted replies yet, so they don't post and then everyone's confused.

I sincerely hope the board operators figure out what's causing the glitch.

In the meantime, enjoy your time with your family. As I tell my RL gaming group, family stuff always has priority.

This, as fun as it is, is just a game. :-)

RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16, RPG Superstar 2012 Top 16

Gary Teter (IIRC) said he's working on some new code that he thinks will fix the problem.


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

new post is up, just in case it didn't update in yer board


Female Human Alchemist (beastmorph) 1 / Gunslinger 1

Thanks, Bosun. It indeed did not.

And, ooh, sounds like we may've gotten a bard on our side. That could be useful.


Male Human Taskmaster and Overlord / 10

Posted; sorry for the wait


Female Human Alchemist (beastmorph) 1 / Gunslinger 1

Not sure what my posting status will be for the next week or so. I was originally supposed to go on vacation to D.C. Monday through Wednesday, which might have limited my posting (though I'd probably still be able to check in at least once a day). Now that trip is up in the air thanks to Stormageddon: The Rainening.

Anyway, if I'm home I may have lots of free time to post. Unless I lose power, in which case I won't be posting at all.

So, to sum up, I'll either be posting a lot, the normal amount or not at all in the next few days.


Male Human Fighter (Corsair)/2

Anyone interested in DMing my Dragonlance game? Our DM seems to have abandoned us without warning.


Male Human Taskmaster and Overlord / 10

Louly - got it...I think

I hope everyone made it out of the storm okay!

Ben - sorry, no way for me; I'm way behind as it is.


Male Gillman Aberrant-bloodline Sorcerer/2nd

I was fortunate to live far enough inland not to be affected. I hope any of you who might have been in the storm's path made it through okay.


Male Human Fighter (Corsair)/2

My house and everything is fine but the storm has made work a complete freakin nightmare


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

glad the home front is ok


1 person marked this as a favorite.
Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

I hope everyone and their families are ok after stormageddon. Take your time getting back to a regular schedule, the important stuff comes first, take care.


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

I noticed some posts were deleted from other games, if you posted this last weekend you might want to check that it's still there.


Male Human Taskmaster and Overlord / 10

Sorry for the hiatus guys; Gregor and Ben - I'm hoping I didn't lose you, but please let me know either way. I know the ship days are getting a bit tedious (I even shortened them from the scripted requirement!), but change is on the wind, I assure you.

Please let me know if you're still out there and post your actions.

Adam - to reiterate...I now despise the San Fran players on your team:)


Male Human Swashbuckling Rogue 2

Ha! The Niners came up big on MNF, can't believe the 25 point comeback with a defense and TE vs. Forte. Von Miller has been winning it for me though, broke 20 three weeks in a row.


Female Human Alchemist (beastmorph) 1 / Gunslinger 1

Gregor's not posted since Oct. 26, though I see the player's had posts Nov. 16 and 11. I'd at the least send him a PM to see if he's still interested.

Ben's last post was Nov. 2. I've seen a couple comments about the storm messing everything up at the start of the month, so maybe DMPC him if you want to give him more time. Considering Ben's general attitude, I think you could safely assume he's keeping to himself without it being out of character for him.

(FWIW, my feeling is replace them and Karn and let's get the game going again. Honestly, I'd even say we could drop the Runelords game if we can get back to this being more regular, but that may just be me. I know it's hard running multiple games, though and this one definitely looks like a lot of work from where I'm sitting as a player.)


Male Gillman Aberrant-bloodline Sorcerer/2nd

It seems unlikely at this point that Karn will come back. We should definiteIy give Gregor a chance to chime in. He may have lost his update notices. As long as we haven't lost Gregor, I'm fine continuing with our current crew without replacements.

In the event that Gregor has left us, I presume at some point in this pirate-themed campaign that we will be attacking a ship. Whenever that occurs, we could probably play out a scenario where new PCs are offered the option of joining the crew or dying.

We could also find players willing to assume identities already on the ship (Sandara, Rosie, Owlbear, etc.). The only problem with that is most players want to build their own characters, not play one that was already made.

Anyway, that's my two cp on the situation. I'm enjoying the campaign and would prefer it not fall by the wayside.

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!


Male Gillman Aberrant-bloodline Sorcerer/2nd

Thoughts? Opinions?

Anyone still out there?

Hello my baby, hello my honey! Hello my ragtime gaaaaaaaal!


Female Human Alchemist (beastmorph) 1 / Gunslinger 1

I just PM'd a player in one of my games to replace Karn, but he's apparently not interested in S&S. Will try a few more folks, but honestly, I might just re-open recruitment since I think we definitely need three people. I'd certainly still direct folks I know are good/active players to the thread.

I definitely want to keep going here (though I think we should let the Runelords game go so we can concentrate on this one).


Male Gillman Aberrant-bloodline Sorcerer/2nd

If we need to drop Runelords, I'm okay with that.

I really like this campaign. We gotta keep it afloat!


Female Human Alchemist (beastmorph) 1 / Gunslinger 1

I agree, bad pun and all! : )


Male Human Taskmaster and Overlord / 10

Alas, I agree. I was hoping that the Runelords campaign would be a bit easier to manage but it was created when the system was a bit younger, so there are a lot of wide open gaps of time that I have to fill with creative misadventures. I unfortunately don't have the time to do so...largely why I run modules instead of trying to make up my own campaigns.

So - my apologies, but yes we'll have to cancel the ROTR campaign. I'll invite our dwarven friend from over there to join us here in S&S; and we'll keep this one going strong.


Female Human Alchemist (beastmorph) 1 / Gunslinger 1

Sounds good to me! Like I said way back when, I liked the idea of doing another game but not at the expense of this one. I'd say open up the recruitment thread and let's add two or three more people in.
