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.
Other than that I am avid Packers fan and support an equally successful soccer team too..
Happy to join your gang, brvheart.
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.
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.
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.
We recently rolled PCs for a Giantslayer campaign. One player objected to rolling stats - he prefers to have the freedom to assign the points however he wants.
So the DM came up with two solutions, first we rolled 5d4 down the line (with a small bennie of the chance to reroll any double 1 that came up) and secondly he allowed me to offer to completely swop my results with his, if necessary.
That kinda worked, a;though there were alot of 12s and 13s in the party.
In preparation I worked out what I would like to play depending on which stat came out highest and that helped me decide what to do with things like a high Con (half-orc scarred witch) for instance. Then I didn't mind what the results were, I could get excited about any set.
Personally, I think it helps if you come from a pre-point buy era so that you aren't wedded to not rolling.
I just got it. Ironically my other game has done the same thing today. Must be a confluence of the moons or something.
Talking to Herl sounds good, having the recap even better. As for you, DMG, your mojo is worth the wait. A bit like Aaron Rodgers!
Maybe Sam and I should wait until after the chat before we reconnoitre?
....are the tribesmen crazy because of the dinosaurs? I sense a plot - mind controlling velociraptors and mind flayer pterodons.
Campaign revealed...time for home and tea and cakes.
P.S. I've liked monkey goblins ever since the first Superstar competition when they were part of the encounter round as "Monkey Goblins Attack!" by Rob McCreary. But so broken as a class, +4 Dex and no minus to a physical stat they would make an awesome rogue.

No problem - I always need help with Dressing.
You said ask the question so I shall. Why four PCs and not five or six? I've run and played in pbp games with up to eight players and rarely seen such a group size.
I don't mean to criticize at all, just interested in your reasons GM. Four PCs makes animal companions and characters able to multi-task far more important. Which leads to the question of us synergizing the eventual party, something that is less vital when there are several others in the party.
It will certainly make combat more risky which is a good thing in my book. On Monday evenings I play in a large tabletop group and we have rarely been challenged by Rise of the Runelords.

I bought Dungeon Dressing hardback and got the other two as pdfs. Cool and chock full of ideas to mine. Well done!
Fantasy football? I wish I had the time! Gaming twice a week is my guilty pleasure. In truth I did it for a couple of years with the Premiership but I'm no great selector or fortune-teller.
We have a strong Live Action Roleplay Group on the island and their major event of the year is coming up at an old Napoleonic fort. I've put my name down to be a monster for the night adventure which should be exciting. We get to play a variety of undead I believe this time. Undead attacking in waves as a four hour ritual takes place over a phylactery.
As for DMG, I hope he does return. But there must be something about this time of year. I'm staring down the barrel of all three of my other games slowly dying....
ha ha ha. Nice Edward, nice.
I didn't get the job, but they want me for some kind of internship part time with a view to the future. So not all bad and when you've been out of education for twenty years its probably a good solution.
Haven't been on the Paizo site for two weeks - my longest break. Need to get this gaming going..
As for the NFL, that's what is filling my spare time, especially with the Packers on form....at the moment.
I like the break too. However I'm staring down the barrel of a job interview for a maths teaching post next week and that will mean some changes to free time for the next few months.
As for Jerrid - he owes the apothecary Gethrame's stick and the Golden Palms big time. They represent everything he hates in the world - slavery and captivity is his worst enemy.
