Old School Greyhawk Campaign (570CY - Southern Keoland)

Game Master ALLENDM

This is a house rule Pathfinder pre-wars Greyhawk starting in 570CY. The intent is to run through the U series, A series, S4, WGR4, G series, D series, and Q1/I6 modules in an adventure path set up. Each module will be modified and there will be twists in the adventures so that even old school players who have played them will see something new. This is a long-term campaign so players applying should be willing to commit to it.

Getting post together before I sleep today


All,

I will have a bunch of posts up tomorrow. I had a crazy day at work these last two days..spent most of the day on conference calls.

I am going to grab some sleep and will be fired up tomorrow and get the ball rolling :)

SD


I have the primary posts up. I have a few minor posts to put up today as well but these are the bread butter.

Let us try and get at least a post up by everyone today, maybe two if we can all work it in, as we are close to getting the ball rolling on this adventure. Looks like we are now in two small groups just need to work on getting the two smaller groups combined and ready to go.

One thing I will add...I like to write in little nuggets here and there that set up things latter. So I would just say pay attention to little things I include.

SD


Jovich,

You may add Irwish To'Lander and his wife Yvette as your first contact. Owners of the Merry Mermaid Inn to D'ogyrn's contact list.

EDIT: Jovich (D'ogryn) not Tick (Soros).

Not asking about moving on to Mick's Tavern because I'm hoping Edan might suggest it in response . . ..

I could post more aggressively, but I'm hoping to get more inclusive posts instead.

And your imagery is very nice, SD. Enough to engage the mental eye without killing it with too much detail. I am not only enjoying it, but also feeling like I'm shortchanging you with what I'm giving back.

I appreciate that and no worries. As each of us has time we can get more descriptive.

All here to have fun. I need to clean up my posts a bit. Already caught some writing mistakes/misspells.

I'm going to try to add polish when I can, but Edan isn't a native, and while asking someone who was there once what happened, it is easier (and quicker) to just go and look. Admittedly, the weather made the tavern a better idea, though... Adventuring isn't fun when you're getting soaked after a short walk.


Mishima,

Do you have a name, description, and stats on the cat yet?

Thanks,
SD

Name I mentioned in game but not outloud (Okware, meaning 'of the night').

Stats have been in a spoiler on my profile page.

Description no, will work that up today.

I never realized panthers weren't a separate species, but rather just black furred versions of either jaguars or leopards... Thanks for teaching me zoology, DnD.


mishima,

I thought I saw it somewhere and for some reason kept passing right over it. (dumb me)

Perfect!

Sorry for the prolonged absence, had some RL stuff to deal with. I'll be updating all my games tomorrow - thanks for your patience.


All,

I will post tomorrow. We had a situation pop up with one of my older son’s friend that has impacted our entire neighborhood so spending time with my family and friends.

I have to clean up a few posts I have been working on.

Thanks!
SD


All,

Just got in. I will get caught up tomorrow morning. Sorry for the delay in posting just been a really bad few days.

SD


All,

I will have a post up for Zove and Rabalar/Edan tomorrow. I am holding off on Zove to get the rest on the road.

SD


11/11 hp (Healthy) 16 AC ★ Perc +7 ★ Init +2 ★ 14.15.14.12.14.12 ★ sv: 4.2.4

No problem, I assume it takes some time for Zove and her companion to find each other.

@ALLENDM - that was a very moving post with Naia and her parents. You know her (and the Temlow's) very well! And your description of the sand dunes, open boat house etc was eerily realistic. Reminds me of what I imagine Rhode Island or similar might be like...


Thanks, Wolf!

I hope I can do that for everyone.

On a different note, I like the changes Paizo made to the website image.

SD


11/11 hp (Healthy) 16 AC ★ Perc +7 ★ Init +2 ★ 14.15.14.12.14.12 ★ sv: 4.2.4

Same, especially lack of sidebar. Much cleaner, less cluttered.


Male Human Expert 4/ Geodesic Crafter 3

Haha. So many folk are saddened by the loss of the sidebar. I liked it for the threads that would catch my eye, but overall the site is much improved visually... Some functionality issues remain, but I'm sure they will be ironed out soon.


I liked the thread side bar. It was nice to see what was trending.

There were a number of posts I happened across via the sidebar, but I understand its removal.

Time for another BSA Campout at the facility with no cell signals. I head to work in the morning and then go meet the troop and head to camp. I'll be back on Sunday.

And the sidebar creation used up a lot of server horsepower to build every time somebody made a page request. Dropping them was a quick way to improve the site's responsiveness without spending money on more hardware.


Male Human Expert 4/ Geodesic Crafter 3

Huh. That makes sense - thanks for the info Rabalar...


Good Luck Rabalar! Have fun!

but on off note how did soros know that D'orgyn was in Mick's Tavern?


It was passed along to him by Irwish at the Merry Mermaid.

I have to say this is a nice mix of characters. I am looking forward to seeing this group come together as a whole soon.


11/11 hp (Healthy) 16 AC ★ Perc +7 ★ Init +2 ★ 14.15.14.12.14.12 ★ sv: 4.2.4

Indeed, its a been a joy reading the narrative.

Hah. You beat me by a half-hour, DM.

It's a little wordier but not by much. *grin* If it helps, think of his voice like The Witch Doctor from Diablo 3. That's pretty much the voice I've been picturing when I'm writing him.

I also didn't want to maintain the assist chain.


M Wood Olf | HP8/11 Grazed | AC16 F14 T12 CMD16 | F+2 R+6 W+1 | Init +4 | Perc+7 SM+1 Stealth+8 Ranger (Divine Marksman) 1

More scouting. Helping run a training course that will keep me occupied through late Sunday. I am in cell range and might get a few minutes like this every now and again.


Sorry Me'mori. I was holding out just wanted to get the story moving along and wanted to get Edan in there. Noted on the witch docter. I have not actually played Diablo 3 :)


Understood Hustonj.

heads up I will be tied up on Saturday and Sunday as my youngest son is playing in a Majors Baseball tournament this weekend and most of the weekend I will be offline. Friday I plan on posting a bit. I am taking the family to our lake house Monday morning and will do plenty of posting there for the week as I have time.

Just a little 'still here, checking multiple times a day' post.

Also I am a bit confused on the meeting place, are there 2? Are the crossroads different from where I am at the moment? Sorry I'm sort of a moron at times.

I think we are all meeting at the same place...


Same place. I will get everyone in one place.

Heh, it didn't help I was calling it the old NORTH road, instead of old EAST road. 'Course, it WAS the north road way back when, before the actual north road existed...


I will have a posts up for us this evening.

SD


Going forward let’s not assume an outcome of a reaction from a party members actions. You can piggy back on to it or respond to it as your character would but let me handle the external reactions.

I will get this all cleaned up and back on track tonight for us

No worries, things like this happen in posts so just bear that in mind.

I am on spring vacation so my posting will be spotty as I am in and out all week. I will make an effort to post every night.

For the record, this player's fine with the interactions right now. I try not to confuse the reactions of fictional, young, hormone-laden characters with the thoughts of the generally older people making them up.

Sorry for my absence over the weekend- things really took off at the crossroads!

Yup, Naia is definitely a young hormone laden lass. Let's hope she can mince goblins better than she mangles conversations.

If folk find Naia to be a problem I'm happy to withdraw.

There is no problem with your character and I would hate to see you go because of some RP. It is hard to judge a persons intent solely by text when there are no visual or verbal stimuli to take in. You are playing your character as you see her to be and we are doing the same with our own characters. I do not see any problems.


Yep, things like that are good. Encounters like that are needed for the party to mesh and for communication to be effective. Better for things like that to happen now than in the middle of a major event :)

That is why I don't like to rush the initial party mesh because these times are important to the group. Especially in a long-term campaign.

For the record - Naia has no desire to lead - she's out of her element and far too young and inexperienced. She'll target enemies fine, but beyond that she's here as a volunteer.

That's unfortunate, because Soros is following her lead :)

I'll also point out that I don't take in-game character interactions personally, so no worries there.

As a note my personal style of posting, I try to avoid ret-conning my character's actions into scenes that play has moved past. I've had problems in other games with ret-con posts and replies confusing matters and disrupting the continuity of "current" gameplay posts already up (basically rendering them unlikely or invalid).

SD, I'll make such posts if your gameplay updates seem to prompt them (such as in the case of the conversation with Geolin), and I'll post brief replies to questions in conversation with other players, and maybe the occasional bit of internal monologue reaction, but that's about it. If we're in combat and more than 24 hours has gone by without me posting, please feel free to bot me. I always try to post up a warning if I'll be AFK for more than a day, but don't always succeed :\

Well while we are in Saltmarsh, Naia has a small level of cachet with the Town Council. Once we leave to further adventures Naia's social currency will have necessarily completely dried up. And I'm not sure being a Harpooner carries much weight in demiplanes, deep caverns or Jarl's frosty throne rooms.

I'm giving her about 37 seconds of fame. ;)
