Bump? This still happening?


I believe we're waiting on a) Mark to get back from vacation, and b) the DM to decide whether he's going to have surgery and, if he does, whether to start now or wait until after his surgery. And possibly, if he's even sure he's up for restarting it at all.

Why don't you go post in Mummy's Mask or Sargava in the meantime? ;)

King Markadian V: I've actually been considering restarting the two games if people are still interested. Work has slowed down enough where I can devote time to posting again.

The big reason I haven't is the possibility of surgery. For a few months now I've been going to the doctor and it started off with a lot of doom and gloom because of my weight (I'm more than a little heavy). Also I had to see the cardiologist and go through a bunch of tests for both of them. At this point I'm not entirely certain how much of my fears were just me, but after all the tests I'm actually fairly healthy besides my weight. One issue is though that my BP raises too high with little exertion, so I need to focus more on my diet than exercise (not that I shouldn't exercise, but nothing strenuous). It was also recommended that I look into one of the weight loss surgeries.

Which is where I'm at right now. In fact, today I'm spending time filling out a pretty long packet of information about myself for the surgery which I need done before my first appointment. Next week I have an appointment with a nutritionist to begin a diet program as well.

So my concern has been if I start it up, then have this surgery shortly thereafter, it may end up putting another pause in the game while I recover. Plus I know in May I'll have a week I won't be able to post for my annual leadership conference. I at least want to get my first appointment with the surgeon before I commit to anything. But just to keep you all updated (since I haven't been as well as I should have).

AK! Dude! Okay, now answer honestly: Did you actually read this post by the DM on the previous page? Now I'll know if you're lying so go ahead and fess up if you haven't. :)


King of Talingarde

I do plan to continue. And as Joana said, I'll be waiting for Mark to return before restarting things up. In AK's defense I haven't posted a followup post yet either.

Tomorrow's my nutritionist appointment though, and the surgeon wants me to go see them first. As soon as I get at least some kind of date or timeframe I'll see about setting up a restart date.

Yup, I read it. With everyone's interest declared I was kind of hoping for a LETS DO THIS, CHUMS. LEEEEROOOOOOOOY JEEEEEEEEEEEEEENKIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINS post.

My impatience is mostly as a result of the fact i've stopped posting in my other WotW game and am seeking confirmation that I should jump ship on it to return to this one.

Thanks KM :).

I have jumped ship on the replacement game I was in. Happily, they didn't get as far as we did anyway so not a problem plot or meta wise.

Okay, I had to totally look that up. I had no idea who Leroy Jenkins was.

Obviously you play(or did play) Warcraft. Those games were a blast back in the day. Of course, I only played them when they were single player campaigns. I don't like MMO games so I've never played it since they quit making them single player.


King of Talingarde

I'm the opposite. I never played the Warcraft games but played a ton of World of Warcraft (did a lot of Starcraft though). Can't really play any MMO's anymore though, too time intensive for me now.


King of Talingarde

So I've got the dates for my appointments now, but only the pre stuff. It looks like it's going to take a while so I figured I'd set a date to restart things. I do know next month I'll have to be gone for a week (May 12th to 16th) and won't be able to post then at all, but have the weekend off afterwards.

So I'll leave it up to you guys. We can start up again after Mark is back and everyone's caught up or we can start after my week in May. Any opinions? Either way I've started catching up on the campaign thread to remember where things are at.


Mark is due back tomorrow-ish or thereabouts. I'd prefer going ahead and getting some stuff done before you have to take time off to waiting another month. But I'm good with whatever.


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

I'm good with getting started when Mark gets back.


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Alright, folks, I'm curious about something.

Okay, I was thinking about applying to this Righteous campaign. So, I got curious as to who it was they were replacing and why. Anyway, when I found out why, I decided not to. Because I think this dude got shafted. Basically my opinion of the DM is not a very good one due to his reasoning behind which he removed the player. Serious false pretenses I feel.

Check this out: LINK

Now, my question is this: Is it actually possible to adjust the coding of this game to cheat on die rolls?

I gotta say, I've never seen someone get kicked out of a game because the DM thinks he's able to alter the die rolls. Don't you have to like, hack Paizo's system or something?

It seems to me that most of you folks are computer supers, so, I figured y'all might know something about this. I don't know jack about computers so that's why I'm asking.


King of Talingarde

It's possible to manipulate the dice roller. In fact when I recruited for these games I chose not to select one person because I caught them doing just that. It's not hacking the coding or anything, but I'd rather not go into details on how. It's not something that would be easily fixed, and the more who know how to do it the more of a problem it can become.


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Really?! I totally understand not going into details about it, but I gotta say that just boggles my mind. There's no way I can see how that's possible. Again, I'm a computer idiot.

But as per the ejected player, he wrote this: "...accused of intentionally doing things to adjust the coding in the game to affect the dice rolls in a recent post."

Would you feel this is possible? Do any of you feel this is possible? Not interested in knowing how - because I wouldn't understand it anyway - but I'm just curious if it is.


Not in use

I have indeed returned! - so please feel free to get things rolling when you're able. I'm wading through some jet lag, and work lag, but nothing I can't handle ;)

I never played MMO's but I had enough friends that did/general geeky culture surrounding me that I was made to watch the video :).


King of Talingarde

Just giving you all a heads up this morning my computer screwed up on me. I'm not sure if it's something simple or not (I think it may just be the video card, but it did force the entire computer to suddenly shut down on me). Hopefully I'll have it back up tonight but wanted to make sure to let you know in case I can't tonight.

DM could you check my permissions? I redotted the campaign but its still not in my campaigns list.


Did you unhide the gameplay thread? Even if it's dotted, you won't see it in your Campaigns tab if it's hidden in the messageboards.

So... much... scrolling...

I guess i'll make another quick post and use the unhide from there. Thanks. Incidentally Joana you going to weigh in on Mummys Mask?


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

It's easier just to find the date on the last post and look for it that way. I had to look up a game that was way buried and found that to be the simplest.

Per Mummy's Mask:
I know this ain't none of my business(but I sure like expressing my opinion whether it's welcomed or not) :), but, you all should've just stayed with the 5 you had in that game. That was an absolute perfect group you had until JaceDK joined. That dude's abrasive, likes to order people around(because that's what type of player he is) and a bit rude. I was in a game with him that was just recently ended by the DM and I held my tongue on a couple of issues because I was just a replacement player, and we were close to coming to the end.

I saw that he joined but haven't checked back since. If he holds true to form - and knowing Mark and Joana as well as one can - I can't see them putting up with his crap. If it would've been a new game that I was picked in with him, we would've had issues. BIG TIME. But that's just my personal experience on it.


Mummy's Mask:
He rubbed me the wrong way pretty much first thing, that's for sure. But the real issue isn't his character but mine. That whole "I will put you through a series of tests" thing just reminded me why I never play fighters. If they're any good at fighting, they're utterly irrelevant any time the game's not in combat rounds. I mean, skill monkeys and casters still get to contribute when the party's in combat, albeit at a less effective level than the pure combat build, but in tests of "wits and skill at spells," the fighter's dead weight; she's just standing around waiting for the next thing she can bludgeon into oblivion. In a PbP game, that's a lot of not participating.

That's where her talking back to the echoing soul or whatever it was came from. In character, Pherenike wouldn't have said a thing; she would have left it to Aristedes to react and then taken her cue from him. But that's SO BORING. I'm just not sure I can get enthused for level after level of doing nothing but rolling dice.

And I should be saying all this in the Mummy's Mask discussion thread, but then JaceDK will come in and give me some helpful advice about how much fun it is, when you have nothing to contribute, to makes posts like "Pherenike looks to the more intelligent members of the party to tell her what to smash" or "Pherenike waits patiently for everyone else to solve the riddle," and I'll want to stab him with a pencil. :P

Nuveril was certifiable and had no issue with saying whatever was on her mind, no matter whom it might offend, so that made her fun to play; even when she had no relevant knowledge or skills, she always felt like her opinion was relevant and deserved to be spoken. Playing Pherenike just makes me realize how much I miss Nuveril.

Mummys Mask:

To be fair at least your a Lore Warden. More skill points and class skills :). Imagine if you only had 2 + Int :P.


King of Talingarde

Computer is fixed. I'll be catching up over the course of this week to get caught back up. Apologies for the delays.


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

No worries here, bud. Be ready to roll when you are.

Xzaral? Any chance of this kicking back up?


King of Talingarde

Looking back my last post here was in April. I do want to continue, but at this time I don't think it's possible for me. In fact when I saw your post on Saturday my intention was to try and get a post up. But the efforts over the weekend really reinforced it for me that I just can't do it right now. I apologize for getting everyone's hopes up and for stringing you all along for so long. My intentions were not malicious, but even so I'm afraid I have not done you all right. Once again, I'm sorry. I'll make the game inactive so it disappears from everyone's campaign tabs.
