Welcome players! I am thankful to the Tangled Web and its admins for hosting us for almost a year, but the time has come to move on. Feel free to check in and continue the game here!
Fun fact: This website seems to censor all bad words :-). How very convinient!
Dice test-Alexandra's attack and damage: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (11) + 2 = 131d6 + 1 ⇒ (2) + 1 = 3
OOC Test: This site looks cool.
If the bad words thing is an issue (and for us, it really might be, considering our story so far), I'd suggest Mythweavers. I switched The Sunken Stones over there yesterday, and it has been great so far.
Of course, just as we settle in, TTW comes back online. So it goes :)
TTW is still not working for me, although the RPG Chat link is working. I have not been able to find a way for color-coding different characters' speech, so I'd suggest going for bold for everything.
I do not have a problem with bad words being bleeped out (well, you know what I mean). I just hope that the admins of this site will not take offense :-). Well, if we're kicked out of here, there's always Mythweavers, as Rathalun suggested :-).
The only con to this site is the lack of multiple in-game campaign threads, but other than that I'm quite happy with the format. If you guys have opinions/comparisons, I'd be happy to hear them.
It would seem, according to a few other folks, that TTW has indeed come back online today. Are we planning on returning, Vlad, or shall we plan on making our new home here a permanent one?
It's working for me as well. I really like the format of TTW, but I find it a bit unreliable at times, so I'd support continuing this game here (or at Mythweavers). Still, this is a (more or less)democratic game, so feel free to cast your vote for Paizo, TTW, Mythweavers or any other host site if feel one way or the other about this.
I might not be able to post tonight. I am at a conference in Lisbon and I got home late.
I did read your posts though, and it seems that most party members agree to abandon the main quest, i.e. trying to decode the message. I don't want to be too meta-gamey here, but you guys did try hard, and although you didn't manage to solve the puzzle, I do not want to punish you for all the effort you've put in. So maybe, I could introduce encrypted messages in the future that would only need the decrypting disk to solve. Of course, you'll have to figure out how that works, but at least you have all components for this.
@ Malcom: Keep in mind that Ark's main mission is still to assasinate Maxentius. So if Ark is to remain in-character (at least as far as I can understand him), he'd be reluctant to abandon his mission for no reason. But I am sure we can come up with reasons for him to stick with the party. Maybe after hearing Zaracas' story he decides to leave the guild before it's too late. Or he can ask Langbard about the whereabouts of Maxentius; both of them are guardsmen, after all. Or he may wish to return to protect Subaru from the Guild / rebellion / whatever. Or whatever else you think may work. Your call :-)
Well, I vote we return to TTW but leave this open as a back-up. I like that we have an alternative space to play should TTW go on the fritz again, but honestly, I just like that site more, bugs and all :)
Still, I'm fine with either choice. As long as we all get to continue creating this crazy story together, I'm happy.
If not TTW, then I think Myth would be a better hosting site. Something about this white background that bothers me . . . plus the censorship.
Personally I like TTW just because I'm used to it, if the issues are the deciding factor then I would say myth-weavers. I'm not a huge fan of this just because I think that the white background is a bit grating on the eyes.
Alright, so the majority does not like this site. I will do some research and decide if it'll be Mythweavers or TTW. Ra, have you shifted the Sunken Stones to Mythweavers or not?
I am enjoying the moral implications raised by Zaracas' capture. I need some more time to update, though. I just returned from Lisbon and I am exhausted... Probably tonight, though :-)
I set up Sunken Stones on Mythweavers, and still retain that space as a backup, but the majority of my players wanted to move back to TTW, so that's what we did.
Game back at TTW after popular demand :-).
