Looks like I'm going down the line of making a human druid of the Verduran Forest.

The Exchange

I'm champing at the bit to see this game take off - so if its okay I'm going to start putting a character together based off what you have told us so far.

It usually takes a few drafts anyway to get the entire PC meshed together so will give me something to mull over while you decide stuff, DM Nebten.

Okay?

Cheers

The Exchange

Good luck mdt. All the best to you and yours.

Urban adventures is one good way of building in more RP. Or give them a quest that involves travelling far and wide on land and sea so that they can experience new environments and new peoples as they try to find what they seek.

Giving each PC a mentor, friend or organisation to introduce adventure hooks, that may sometimes conflict with each other but provide layers of villains and neutrals.

Just a couple of ideas.

Cheers

The Exchange

For me, it depends on how much the players are invested in their characters. If they are generally mking mistakes and the campaign isn't tight then a TPK can be on the cards. But it takes alot for me to kill everyone. I might slot one or two but I prefer to capture, torture, and remove favourite magical items from the characters. That hurts players and sets up some real ambitious revenge situations.
Facial Scars are a fine way to remind someone that they got beat. Each NPC remark really gets on their wick.

Cheers

The Exchange

How about the animal domain? That should give you someone to protect you or act as an attack dog/wolf/TRex. Then concentrate on buffing and summoning would be my advice.

Good luck 7th Gen Cleric.

The Exchange

Dragon's Demand is one adventure which I know nothing of so I'd like the chance to put forward a character.

The way you are planning to run a mini-adventure sounds even better, those comments about Sandpoint and Olegs strike a chord with me - especially the latter.

I'd be interested in playing a monk or paladin, after a succession of rogues and bards. Something Good with a capital G.

Cheers

The Exchange

I've got to drop out, real life has bitten me hard and time is against me completing the oracle.

Good luck with the game

Str: 14 - 1d6 ⇒ 14 - (3) = 11
Dex: 14 - 1d6 ⇒ 14 - (3) = 11
Con: 10 + 2d4 ⇒ 10 + (4, 4) = 18
Int: 10 + 1d6 ⇒ 10 + (6) = 16
Wis: 10 + 2d4 ⇒ 10 + (1, 1) = 12
Cha: 10 + 1d6 ⇒ 10 + (5) = 15

Well I was hoping for a druid but maybe a half-elf witch or wizard instead.

Thunking time now

I ran a Ravenloft game with candles a few years ago and I'd just managed to get the atmosphere where I wanted it it. All tense and them listening to my soft voice when my cat rubbed up against one of their legs in the dark....

Hilarious response from the player as he jumped out of his chair.

Cheers

The Exchange

One of the keys to successful building tension is to keep the players uncertain. Uncertain about the monsters, the corridors, and the uncomfortable details.

Ask questions like, there is a dark dank mine shaft heading into darkness....in front of you is a puddle black as night so its depth is unknown. However it is only five feet wide. Who goes first? Who is going to step or try to jump over the puddle?

The players are thinking why is he bothering with a puddle. Its just a puddle. I'm going to step in it. No I'm going to jump over.

Never give exact information, always make it seem like there is more if the party can just figure it out.

Once they are unsettled - separate them.

I am part of one game which is on a long term hiatus due to the DM trying to rebalance his time and work commitments. Its great when you do get a good group, everyone posting and the action moving along with energy and atmosphere.

There does seem to be an element of luck attached to getting that perfect mix of leaders, followers and all posting regularly but perhaps I have shelved my character from that game because I miss being in such a successful game.

Cheers

The Exchange

I love Age of Worms, its first part is my favorite adventure of all time and I've run and played in it multiple times.

Of the later APs, Kingmaker has a fantastic scope for any party. It is terrific.

I'm running some of Giantslayer in the next few months and I have high hopes for that too.

For all the naysayers against Second Darkness, it has one truly memorable encounter when the zombies push the tower of the hill. Unforgettable.

Cheers

The Exchange

Not a problem, especially playing Mojo.

The Exchange

I signed up for the same kickstarter, brvheart. Do you want me to NOT read it? I'm on page two before I fell asleep yesterday evening.

No hangovers here and raring to go.

Cheers

The Exchange

What kind of a player are you?

I enjoy gaming alot. Its my one obsession, and everyone is allowed one right? After playing since 1981, I've gathered a fair amount of experience however there are plenty on the boards with more and I've gamed with some top notch "newbies" too.

What is your favorite campaign setting?

Greyhawk during first and third edition, Al-Qadim and Ravenloft during second and now I gather Paizo APs for converting to my own world. I sometimes wish I'd concentrated on one but truthfully there are some great bits in all of them.

Have you read or played Shackled City?

Yes, read them back when the magazines came out. Forgotten most of it since.

What made you decide to apply?

I used to have plenty of time to play in plenty of games. Now its a matter of quality over quantity and your recruitment process bodes well for the endgame (plus Black Dow and scranford are mates from previous games).

The Exchange

Happy New Year to you too.

cheers

In the spirit of gifts and Christmas, Jason could you choose me a pdf from Legendary Games? It would be my first and having followed your writings for years, I'm sure you will pick well.

Sqwonk is closest to 2 and so wins the roll-off.

French Wolf got a 13 on a roll-off and gets Forest Guardian's line of PDFs. Also, by losing the roll-off, French Wolf gets a PDF from Legendary Games.

I'm sat at work on a fifteen minute break before I head back down to the bedlam of our superstore wine warehouse with a massive grin on my face. This is unforgettable stuff and so hugs and thanks to all of you involved in this.

A very bright spot in a hectic week!

Guys I am loving the game and so I wish you all a happy christmas here and now while I have a small break at work. Its been grand fun so far and long may it continue.

One small point is I wonder if it might not shave a few hours or day or two even off the pace if we let brvheart roll initiative when combat breaks out. Its something I have seen work in many games and might benefit this one?

Obviously if you guys have already hashed this out in the discussion thread then I will understand.

Cheers

Please remove me from the running,and good luck everyone with your application, unfortunately time is against me.

Dotting - definitely up for this recruitment.

Will l try to come up with a basic concept and outline after work tonight. Can't see how many players you are looking for?

Cheers

This is so cool. Love to join, happy to review (especially Raging Swan) and more than happy to wish you guys a Merry Christmas for this.

Much appreciated.

The Exchange

Is that one by Mike Shel?

If so then I've heard that is a great reputation. And reducing the choice to core classes and races definitely suits the older school player in me.

How about a dwarven druid (of the earth possibly)?

Cheers

The Exchange

You take care, Darren. You know where we are if you need to offload and you guys will be in my prayers. I'm sorry.

The Exchange

sigh

Do you know I remember reading this AP all those years ago, especially the first part and loving it. Absolutely. There are so many vague memories I have of the various parts and i've always wanted to get through this one because of it.

.....but it is a monster to DM. and if SRose has computer issues then its understandable. Just a a shame. I would prefer the doc/dm to come back one last time and call it, if it is terminal. Or get us back on track.

Then we would know where we stand.

Regards

The Exchange

Is this game dead and buried?

The Exchange

Payback is a ....well you know. I blame Tracey Porter. Lets all hope that the Viks do everyone a favour and blow it too.

Cheers

Go Bears...just go. How to spoil a party in the rain. Feels like the season is just dribbling away now after so much promise.

Sigh.

Thanks for keeping us informed and I can appreciate how hard it is to say no sometimes.

You take care

Fine by me.

Now while they are drinking in the Bristleback?

The Exchange

As and when you want me in town, let me know.

The Exchange

Not seeing you guys as using stealth much so far? The fun seems to find you not vice versa.

I was current with the rules but since Ultimate Magic the archetypes and races and Class Guide have surpassed my rules-fu. Bit too much like 3rd ed with all the books again.

I co-wrote Villainous Pirates and Henchmen and Hirelings. Creighton almost killed me in the Temple of Elemental Evil far too many times. And I like the sound of Mrs Brvheart.

Hello Everyone

Introductions would seem appropriate under the circumstances. I'm a 49 year old gamer living on an island in the English Channel with my two great kids and a lecturer for a wife. We are under licence to stay here for the next two years or so at least and it is a very idyllic place. I'm the house husband but I work in a large store and teach Maths privately as well.
Gamingwise I started young and despite a ten year hiatus in my twenties, I came back with a vengeance joining the TSR regional directorship programme in the RPGA. More recently I've written for Raging Swan Press but truthfully the publisher is a mate and we have gamed together. Presently I play in Rise of the Runelords on Mondays evenings and run a Viking style game on Thursdays.

Other than that I am avid Packers fan and support an equally successful soccer team too..

Happy to join your gang, brvheart.

Cheers

P.S. Most of my posting was between 2007 and 2010 when I had babies to look after and plenty of spare time. From eight games I am down to two now - much more manageable.

The Exchange

Maybe this game isn't over and I sincerely hope that we get a restart some time because Grimmy has done a stand up job of DMing. For that reason I am retiring Jerrid in that hope.

However an opportunity came up to play a rogue and join a strong campaign doing Rappan Athuk. I've applied for that and telling you guys so you can understand I'm not baling just want to play.

Cheers

The Exchange

We are in the same game and Sam is a great rogue and so is his player! Good luck mate.

Cheers

The Exchange

Pledged now.

The Exchange

Great. I'll get on it after work today and keep you posted.

Advice from any of the other players would be helpful once I've wrestled with the books and researched how your party operates. RA has a bad reputation so you must be doing something right.

Cheers

The Exchange

Vanilla rogue is fine, however I did wonder about an archaeologist bard. I'm fairly busy over the weekend and its already 11pm here in the UK - so would Sunday evening fit your game as a finished alias?

If not then perhaps someone else will jump in to this slot?

cheers
FW

The Exchange

Unchained rogue allowed?

The Exchange

This is hardly a surprise and I totally understand - it takes alot of clear time to prepare a complicated post and keep track of all that is going on.

Its just a game. A very good game with great people but just a game at the end of the day. Some things are far more important. And remember we have played together for quite a while and had some fine moments.

Regards
Andy
