Hope everything works out for you Devon. It's been fun.

Shadow Lodge

I do apologize if my posting is holding things up. For the record, I don't take it personally if you just move along. I've finally got a new job in the new town, but I work nights and it's been kicking my rear. So my incentive to get on and update has been lackluster. I honestly don't mean to hold everybody up, and seeing as how my home games have practically stopped, you guys are really all I get to RP with these days.

So consider this as my 2 cp to work harder on my end.

Shadow Lodge

Never done an all-dwarf game, though I have always wanted to. There's always that one guy that just has to be difficult, thinks dwarfs just aren't cool, and HAS to play like a tiefling (or some other obscure race) only after you've told him he can't be a drow.

Shadow Lodge

Lol, there for a second I thought you were referring to my post. I was like, but that is proper comma usage I believe.

Shadow Lodge

Will do, Mr. GM, sir.

Shadow Lodge

Sooo... Are we changing characters? Can I be a wizard? Salvi's aversion to adventuring was interesting, but was starting to feel a little tiring.

Shadow Lodge

I'm back. Ill be back to posting (with the new job situation it should be a more frequent pace than before) as soon as I get caught up.

Shadow Lodge

I'm back everyone. Ill be posting again shortly once I've got caught up on everything I've missed.

Shadow Lodge

I'm back everyone. If everyone is still allowed a respec, I'd like to do a wizard. But either way, ill be posting again shortly once I've been able to catch up on every thing I've missed. I know I'm about 50 posts behind in Devon's S&S game.

Shadow Lodge

Just letting all my PbP's know. I'll be moving here shortly, so my posting might get a little scarce for a week or two.

I know when I ran this one at home, it was a TPK on this encounter... of course we only had a three-man group.

Shadow Lodge

Hey everyone, I've decided that with this campaign's 2 year anniversary coming up in just a month, I'm going to do a piece of artwork of our group. To that end, everyone send me as detailed as you feel necessary physical description of your characters. Be aware that since I (and I believe most of us) have come to associate our characters with their profile pics, some portions of those may creep into the piece. Also keep in mind that anything about your character that I don't get I'll take some artistic license with. And I am aware that most of us have pretty detailed descriptions in our characters' profiles; I'm talking about anything not already described. Hopefully I'll have it done by Aug. 4. I'll post a link up here for it when I'm done.

Shadow Lodge

Like I said Phil, you're the GM. I'm satisfied with however you call it.

Shadow Lodge

You're the GM. However you want to do it is fine by me. It wouldn't be the first time I've done something similar.

Shadow Lodge

Apologies for the lack of posting recently, I haven't had any internets for the past week.

Shadow Lodge

For the record, I swear I'm not trying to be difficult. I am finding Salvi to be a difficult character to play, though. With the GM's permission I wouldn't be opposed to changing her out to a more party-friendly character should the need arise.

Also, I attempted to run this at home, and had a TPK on this very encounter.

Also, also, I apologize for the scarcity of my posting lately. I haven't had internet for the past week.

Shadow Lodge

Good to see you back Nirthuus. And my condolences as well for your losses.

Shadow Lodge

Thinking about you, Phillip. Best of luck.

Shadow Lodge

I've only just realized that I seem to have inadvertently created Brick from Borderlands, lol.

On that note, for all you fans of that series, I give you this if you haven't already heard about it.
Bunkers and Badasses

Shadow Lodge

Cool, just wanted to make sure I wasn't adding gear to my list that was still up for grabs, lol.

Shadow Lodge

Just making sure, but Lissa did get the sword right? No one else wanted it if I remember.

Shadow Lodge

Yeah, they have on one front. However, my wife's younger bro. just got rushed into critical care. We'll be leaving in the morning to go visit everyone. Should still be able to keep up posting, though.

Shadow Lodge

I've never played one myself, but I helped a player in my home game run one for a pretty good while. He was new, so I kind of had to learn the class to explain it to him. And I've always wanted an excuse to try one. I initially thought to go with ranger because it fit the AP. But really, a more arcane type character would fit with the plane-hopping parts of the AP. The more I think about it the more I lean towards alchemist. I'll need to concoct a background. I'm just looking for some input.

Shadow Lodge

Just pointing out I'm still in.

Shadow Lodge

FYI, my comp is on the fritz ATM. Posting this from my phone. Ill try to keep up, but posting may be sporadic while I get it worked on.

Shadow Lodge

I think I remember him posting somewhere about what's been keeping him. Can't for the life of me remember where or what it was.

Shadow Lodge

I do. I've got everything except the Only War beta. I've really been eying Soul Reaver for RT and Apostate Gambit for DH lately.

Shadow Lodge

Reign of Winter final cover design is now officially up. Looks quite awesome if I do say so myself.

Shadow Lodge

I think the original forward of Pathfinder #6 gave the perfect cast for Karzoug: Chow Yun-Fat!

Jared Padalecki as Aldern Foxglove.
Emilia Clarke as Nualia.
Byung-hun Lee as Tsuto Kaijitsu.

In general I find up-and-coming actors to be better for this kind of thought exercise than a list of A-listers.

Shadow Lodge

If you're looking to get into pbp gaming, you should go into it with the knowledge that rp is going to trump combat in most games since combat can be a little on the slow side. This isn't necessarily true of all the games, but it is the norm.

Shadow Lodge

I'd say somewhere human-centric and in Avistan. As we'll be spending at least a fair portion of the AP in Irrisen, it would be a little jarring for our characters to be from warm climes. Not that we all need to be already used to being in furs, but at least acclimated to more temperate zones. I'd also think somewhere near-ish to Irrisen would be better to give our characters more emotional involvement. The only thing I can gather, though, is that it describes Heldren as being "far to the south".

But really I think it amounts to wherever the group wants its characters to be from. I still think it would be best to wait for the Player's Guide.

My 2cp.

Shadow Lodge

I remember there being a contest of sorts, but never saw the end of it.

Likewise with the Happy Thanksgiving for all of my friends here on the boards. You guys have been great to hang out with.

Shadow Lodge

I may be deciding on what to play for Reign of Winter (and I'm really starting to warm to the shapeshifter idea), but I know what I want to play for the as-so-far unnamed Worldwound Crusade AP after it. Dhampir Inquisitor (or paladin). Because a half-vampire demon hunter is just too cool not to do.

Shadow Lodge

It's all good man. Considering you're recovering from surgery, I'm surprised you've only been gone this long, lol. Grats on a speedy recovery.

Shadow Lodge

No idea, I'm still tossing things around. I'll probably go through several character concepts before I decide on one. I also thought of something. From the description, it seems like we won't be starting in Irrisen, but will be going through a portal and end up there. When the player's guide comes out, I hope they let us know where we'll be beginning at, as it might influence my character.

Shadow Lodge

You know what Phillip, count me in. Will have a character up asap.

Shadow Lodge

ARC, I'm really enjoying the game, but some RL issues are causing me to have less and less time to post. Rather than drag everyone out waiting for me or having you run my character for, I think I'm just going to have to back out of this one. I've really enjoyed the game so far, and thanks for letting me in. Happy hunting everyone.

Shadow Lodge

This is exciting, we have followers!

Shadow Lodge

Super excited for Reign of Winter. No idea whatsoever what I'll play, though. I have had an idea for a half-orc sorcerer that I've been batting around for a while. Might break that out.

Shadow Lodge

I've got roughly 2,000-ish points of Chaos Marines. Looking to add a Helldrake and a Forgefiend to my army soon. Also thinking of taking Daemon allies to get some horrors, flamers, and screamers. With the update White Dwarf gave them, Tzeentch daemons can be nasty.

To look at the price of the game though, one: you have to consider the rate at which you make purchases. As long as you're not looking to jump strait into the tournament scene, $50-$100 is enough to get you a decent beginning army (roughly the same amount one would spend on a new video game). You can increase slowly from there as you get your models painted. $30-$40 dollars every month or two from there isn't bad. Two: realize that the models you're assembling are permanent. You don't beat the game and are done, nor will new ones be released 5 months later that invalidate the ones you currently have (i.e. like any TCG). Three: on a note to all TCG (trading card game) players, the money looks like a lot because you're spending it in larger doses when compared to card booster packs. When you only drop $3 for a pack, it doesn't seem like much, but the amount you get, the frequency they are being bought at, and that's not counting the new release big box sets to go along with that... People who play card games spend way more on that than Warhammer players, it's just harder to notice.

The main thing to consider is that it's not just a game, it's a hobby as well. You're not just buying and playing with them, you're painting them, modeling them, making scenery to go with them. It really should be looked at more as a hobby than a game when looking at price.

Shadow Lodge

The Mechanicum made him stronger... better... faster than he was before. And apparently more sociable as well, lol.

Shadow Lodge

Does it need to be spoilered? 'Cause I've already got it on mine.

Shadow Lodge

I'm from Louisiana, dude, so I feel you on the hurricanes. Stay safe, man.

Shadow Lodge

In the DnD 3.5 Eberron setting, clerical spells WERE powered by the strength of the cleric's faith. There were a variety of religions in the world: some of them the standard DnD polytheistic approach, some were more like Taoism, and others still worship beings who are clearly not gods. But if the cleric's conviction was strong enough (ie. high enough Wis score) he could cast his spells. Also, since clerics had no god persay (it was debatable whether or not the dieties existed) they did not risk loosing their spells for breaking their church's code of conduct or for having a wildly different alignment than their religion. Hence corruption in the curch was rife.
In the end, it's your game to run as you choose. The reason a lot of people advise to keep the game as surreal and fantastical as possible and keep the real world out, is to maintain comfort level. As long as you feel your players are mature enough to handle game religions similar to real-world religions, go for it.
Now as CommandoDude said, if any of your players choose to play a divine character class in such a setting, you should give some thought as to the overall alignment, favored weapon, domains, code of conduct, and such for the religions of your setting as these provide definite mechanical options for those classes.
