Hey DW - don't forget to swing by the Other Eberron game as you need to post for Otto.

Nor do you necessarily get two rolls to hit something - I would have applied the roll you made first.

Sorry for my silence, I've had a few work related issues to deal with. They should be resolved by the end of today.

An online map is a wonderful thing that can extend infinitely away at a whim of the DM. The map stops where it does because that's as far as the party can see over the top of the slope. When you get to the top, you might see more.

Well, you would need to. You are 4th level characters on the Fast Advancement Track, so you start with 6,000xp and now gain this xp award. Next level, for reference, is 10,000xp.

Legend, by David Gemmel. Druss is fine. The Sathuli are fine. But the narrative is a shoddy slapped together tropeheap devoutly and passionately focused on the least interesting characters and story elements. And Rek, introduced as a shiftless layabout bumming a bar tab, turns out to be phenomenally...

Legend isn't all that great. Quite a lot of early Gemmel isn't all that great, as it happens, where the plots are all identical, the action sequences all feel the same, and the characters all very similar. Reading one of his book was a bit like bad sex - you carried on to the end, since they are fairly readable, and then wondered why you bothered starting.

Someone at work lent me his book Dark Moon and I put off reading it for ages. But the guy was going back to Australia so I read it so could give it back to him, and funnily enough I really enjoyed it. And his subsequent stuff carried on being good, and I began reading Gemmel again. So, while he retained his essential style, his ability to build character and plot had improved infinitely. So you might choose some of his later stuff, like the Trojan trilogy.

(Apparently his wife, Stella, was quite heavily involved in some of the books, and she finished off his last one posthumously. She has a book of her own, The City, which is in the mould of late Gemmel. I wonder if his books started getting good when she started adding her input.)

More like it's fairly standard English English. Fairer to say Mark Twain is a fan of me. You will have noticed Twain's use of the term "jammy git" and "pants", no doubt...

Yeah, but the popularity of the Call of Cthulhu RPG suggests that it's a perfectly viable approach.

Yes, it can be a bit slow but I'm never overly bothered by that. You just need to keep half an eye on the game and I will generally prompt when it is someone's go.

Without wishing to create controversy, I didn't find The Colour of Magic or The Light Fantastic impenetrable - they are quite readable. But like I said, The Colour of Magic isn't really a novel but three novellas and not really representative of the other books in structure. The Light Fantastic IS a proper novel, but since it follows on from The Colour of Magic you would probably need to read that first (contradicting what I said before). But in many ways it is certainly true that there are more representative books to start with rather than those two.

There are a number of "series" within the Discworld series - for example, the Vimes novels form a sort of series but weren't written as such, but as part of the larger Discworld sequence. Also, the novels are more-or-less self-contained - you can read one and not be disadvantaged by not having read any of the others. That said, some do re-use characters and show some development over time, so it is often good to get in at the beginning of the sub-sequences. But the first book is quite strange, as it is really three novellas tied together and is not a fully mature novel. It's difficult to pick the one you should start with as it depends on what you like. Plus I'm not a dyed-in-the-wool Pratchett enthusiast, so others will have a better idea on the individual novels (since I haven't read even half of them). But you could do worse than "Guards! Guards!" in my opinion.

The party are in a slave village in the Tablelands. It's not far from Silver Spring, and even closer to the hideout of the Blacksand Raiders. I don't see that Nuuko necessarily needs to have escaped from anywhere, but he can nevertheless be a guide for escaping slaves to the village. His motives can be more or less mercenary, depending on your desires. Alternatively, he could have some connection to Sirril, an elven mystic who lives in the elven slum in Altaruk who the PCs consulted (see here). And these two options are not necessarily mutually exclusive.

An inquisitor would most likely be a templar. That would be tricky to set up in the current location.

Favoured enemy is up to you. One of the humanoid races (including humans and elves) wouldn't be a bad choice. But there isn't a monster "theme" to this campaign much.
