I also try to throw random interesting hooks out there a lot, and see what gets a nibble from the players.

If somebody likes something, I go with it, if not I let it go away.

Agreed, I've often just thrown out a half dozen potential half formed NPC's and subsequent plot-hooks for the players to pick up on any they wish.

Whilst at the same time, you have to not be too precious about NPC's or a specific plot-point - or if it's essential communicate it to the players.

Funny story on this theme: a few years back in my Silver Rose game a player ended up in the sewers under Sigil. She came across a group of Darakhul ghouls traveling to a hidden portal to the dread subterranean Ghoul Imperium (I am a big Open Design fan). I spent a long time making up that encounter, but all I got was 'cool!' for a reaction, lol. The player wasn't interested at all. But, thems the breaks sometimes.

What do you guys think?

I don't think there is any problem with that scenario, assuming your players have dedicated themselves to being available at that time. There are virtual table top sites that allow you to play a virtual real-time game quite handily. PbP is traditionally a more spread out method of play, time wise, but if all involved are good with a structured play time I think it would work fine.

*shrug*. I like them, but there are other authors that I think stink on ice that the nerdosphere worships (Terry Pratchett, Piers Anthony, Brian Sanderson). I actually like GRRM's short fiction quite a bit more than GoT. He just came out with a two-book anthology of his work, I highly recommend it. He's a hell of a SciFi writer.

Good Morning FAWTL!

A lazy Sunday start. I haven't been spending a lot of time here, so I figured I should drop by to say hello. After a long a brutal winter the weather finally has turned from cold to warm. I must prepare to chasten the rebellious blackberry thicket. It has overrun lands not enfeoffed to it, and that cannot be countenanced.

I think that last point's actually pretty interesting, Heathansson. This may be too specific a question, but can you think of any particular occasions you took a break and it made things pick up better afterwards?

And thanks for your advice, everyone.

Nothing specifically exactly.

My "Isle of Dread" game, though, is all my doing. I beg borrow steal a lot from published adventures, but it's mostly my scripting.

Sometimes, I have no idea what exactly to do next, and I just might see a movie I like or read something in a story or even a game book and then I'm off on a tangent, thinking about the idea and then coming up with the next bit of the adventure....does that make sense?

That's pretty much how I run my Silver Rose game. I came up with a story arc involving an elven kingdom that was a shameless ripoff of Gondolin. I was reading the Silmarillion at the .

Lol. Plenty of crime on Cape Cod. They just up the patrols when the rich tourists are in town. You'll never get to the real 1%ers. They're all behind private security guarded gates.

Lol. Whatevs. I have a long and storied grognard pedigree, 35 years and counting. I hope I never get my nose jammed so far up my nethers that I get offended by new slang

If anyone took me to task for using 'toon' I'd be glad. At least I'd have an early warning that their play style would be humorless and pretentious. It would keep me from wasting 2-4 hours of my time at least.

And any character that wanders from place to place making a living killing things? Murderhobo. Dress it in pretty intentions all you want.

I got in the habit of using 'mob' and 'toon' in my games. Just as verbal shorthand on occasion I use 'tank', 'healer', and 'DPS' as well. No real reason, I use it like any slang.

I do absolutely looooooove murderhobo. Just the thing to get a chuckle at the right moment.

I usually do old school modules rather than APs, but I have finished several modules as part of my PbPs, but not the main theme as AP games seem to be.

Hey all, just a quick update:

This week was the final week for my second job. I am at peace with this, and quite happy that several of my evenings are free again. I do hope to translate this into more time to post, we will see

My wife is likely going to be getting promoted soon. I am hoping this will not disrupt things too badly, but I will still be closer to my own computer should I have to start packing stuff up to move somewhere.

I hope to bring all of my games current this week, and I am still committed to them. Thanks again for your patience, it has been a very long winter.

Just a heads up folks. My life is again becoming interesting. I am hoping that soon it will settle down, but until it does I just want to warn you I might not be posting too well. I can't seem to find the time to get it accomplished. Please accept my apologies and I will hopefully soon regain a more settled state where I can post regularly in the near future.

Yeah it was quite a scuffle. I did the cleric so I went with high diplomacy skills and played Healy Face.

Mad Badger got a taste of pent up desire from the drow captain of the guard (a stone-faced goddess that MB thawed with his brawny charms.) I think the Crimson Masque would have gotten along famously in that game.

Also, the picture will include three NPCs. Renkar, who I always imagine looking a bit like the Dos Equis spokeman in medieval garb. Hanali Hal'Oight, who would be similar to a half-elven version of Scarlet Johanssen, and Mercurio, a silver-colored faerie dragon about 20-30 Kg in weight and the size of a medium dog.

All around a large hearth with a big copper kettle on the fire.
