WANT!

Hah. I have friends that would love that one too.

Me too!

One of my buddies still collects dice. (LAst I checked he had several tackle boxes full) :P
I used to give him some Mardi Gras beads, sometimes the beads are shaped like dice.
He would get that in a heartbeat.


Ooo,... Time to dust off the idea shelf! :)

I'm also hopeful and looking forward to it.

Agreed with above, Spider Man should feel fun. This looks promising. :)

And Micheal Keaton as Vulture?!? This should be pretty good.

If I need the Lackeys around, I'll bring them in, don't worry. Otherwise, you have the option of having them with you for most things, except royal audiences and the like.

You gave me a lot about Marea in Diego's backstory; plenty to work with.

??? I think you might be confusing Marea with Cecila, his former betrothed. :)

Cuz I just re-read it and I didn't see anything about Marea. (It had been a while since I wrote it. I had to check!)
Actually, I pretty much dried out the well making up all that stuff about his family. Any help with Marea would be welcome! ;P


GM Treppa wrote:
Does Diego have his lackey with him? Same question for everyone else :P

If you have an RP or scene idea that needs a lackey, absolutely!

Or I can always come up with something. (Although I haven't exactly figured out Marea's personality or anything. Open to suggestions here.)
;P

Let's say yes. I'll play with ideas and see what I figure out! :)


Hey all,

Hey Solnes! :)

Happy last finals day Monkey! (Is that today or tomorrow?)

And a sad and fond farewell to one of my personal heroes.

Farewell John Glenn, may you orbit our hearts forever. :)

Yeah, I chalked it up to your idiosyncratic style, Rags.

Tilnar, did we cross-post? I can delete. I think Dee was at -8, so the -7 and -1 bring her back to 0?

Wow. I have style!

Who knew?!? ;P

Thank you to all. Now I'm really excited to see the (Digital) dice fly! ;P


Sure, all works for me. :D

(Hurries to re-read all of the family names posted earlier, trying to remember who he worked for in the first place!) ;P

NICE entry/set up posts GM! I can already tell this is gonna be a very convoluted (In a good way!) adventure!

Hm,... wonder if a certain cleric of a not-safe-to-name-in-public Power would benefit by taking a level of Vigilante?

Magnus really just wants to get laid. lol

LOL Dang, am I writing him THAT transparent?!? ;P

Well, Magnus WAS planning on offering to be her 'personal bodyguard' for this trip. He does plan on protecting her from everyone & everything but himself! ;P Although I suspect that this lady can protect herself (even from Magnus) with little difficulty :)


That can be both good and bad.

Good because, less tests! :) (That's ALWAYS good, actually) ;)

Bad because, less tests = less chances to make a bad grade and still bring it up! :P (As my daughter in HS is finding out right about now,... :(

Best of Luck Pat! :)

I don't really care for evil campaigns, or evil characters... but all my characters usually end up being evil...

Hey! A 'Murderhobo' is NOT evil! It is a job description! We provide a valuable service!

Can you imagine how out-of-control all of those fantasy world humanoids and undead and monstrous etc would be if not for us?

Think about it! Every time you turn a corner there are more! The friggin things are like rabbits! What would the (fantasy) world(s) do without us?!?!? ;)


You call it efficiency, I call it 'Constructive laziness'. :)

I take my time and do things right the FIRST time. Because I am FAR to dang lazy to be going back and doing it again! ;P

On a similar note, would (any of) you prefer (or do you care?) if I also started bolding my PC's conversation? I do not tend to do that as I pretend that I am practicing as if I would write a book.
(It'll never happen, but it's fun to pretend!) ;)
But I do not mind if everyone would prefer that style of posting.


ROFLMAO!

AH,... Thanks Monkey. I needed that this monday morning! :)

Speaking of, It is Finals week here at my University. How/when are your finals? o_O

? Means I'm not sure if I misinterpreted your interest. Please confirm it for me :)

Anyone else sound out of you are interested. Regular Treeforters will get precedence

Yes I am interested.

Just forgive me if my idea of bad is more like the school yard bully and less like Hitler.

LOL,

Takes all kind to be evil! ;P

Actually, I recently (within the last year or 2) read a fantasy novel where GOOD had actually won. "Villains by Necessity" by Eve Forward The BBEG was running for it's life, and evil was getting harder and harder to find. The problem was, Good was TOO good. The light was getting brighter, nights were getting brighter and shorter, etc, and eventually the world was going to literally burn up from the excess of goodness and light. Enter a band of 5 of the last remaining villains. They form a group and go on a classic adventure to end the reign of good before the world is destroyed. :)

Blurb for the book-

Spoiler:

With the banishment of Evil from the realms, the final victory of Good is assured-unless a few stalwart antiheroes can save the world from a serious and potentially fatal imbalance. First novelist Forward explores the complications that arise from a surfeit of "goodness" in the world. The result is a skewed version of the epic fantasy that features an assassin, a thief, an evil sorceress, a dark knight, and an implacable druid as the villains-turned-heroes who must restore the delicate balance of opposing forces before their world disappears in a blinding flash of Goodness and Light. -- Library Journal

It was both a fun read, and an interesting take on 'what IS good/evil'? As the group of Villains proved that you do not have to be 'nice' to do good, and sometimes you have to be bad to do the right thing. The 'good' guys were the quintessential uber-paladin-type. Who were so focused on stopping 'evil' that they literally could not see that the world was being destroyed around them. And quite clever and witty writing too. Not too shabby for a first-novel.
(IMHO of course)

ARGH! NOW I have to go find the book on my over-crowded bookshelves and read it again! (Like I don't have enough to do!) ;P


Well,... Since you asked,... ;P

1) Very helpful actually, especially when I miss a few days in a row and am catching back up. :)

2) Tech stuff in the middle doesn't bother me, (I do it all the time, but I might start spoilering it like you are for narrative purposes) But I do enjoy it at the end too. Does make reading the narration easier/nicer. :)

3) Map links VERY useful, yes, Please keep! :)
On deck order is helpful, but not AS important in PbP, still very nice, again especially when I'm out of loop. (As I tend to get) ;P

Thank you! :D

I don't MIND puzzles (They aren't my favorite, but I don't mind them)
I do like the feeling that you get from actually figuring out a puzzle.

But since PbP is not quite the same as chatting over the puzzle at a table, I would very much like it if after so much time of trying to figure it our we get to try a INT check instead! :)

(Let's face it, I tend to play PC's who are a lot smarter than I actually am!) ;P

If you are interested I'd love to see your take on a charming villain (because I know that would be your take on it, LOL)

Well,...

Actually, my first thought was a summoner (any version) who was more amoral than out-right evil. He doesn't kill because killing is fun, he just isn't bothered by killing you either. he thinks of everyone as his summons, ... disposable. >.> <.< -_-

But I actually like your idea better! ;P

Color me interested. :)

So, just floating this out there. I keep revisiting my idea of a Suicide Squad-style mission where the PCs get to play super-evil characters enlisted against their will to perform a mission. I'm thinking just before Christmas I'll be pulling the trigger. I'm floating out here in the Treefort to see if there is any interest before I broaden the recruitment.

The bones of the story will be the old 3.0 adventure City of the Spider Queen. I'll need one player to assume the role of 'handler', basically ensuring that the other PCs stay on target. That person would have to be LN, or perhaps a very principled LE. The others? Well, this is the chance to play a fairly-high-level villainous character using any 3pp material you can find. I'm going to try and unearth my Book of Vile Darkness for this as well.

Players would start off in some sort of fantasy-based SuperMax prison designed to hold highly-skilled and magical beings.

Motives could be anything. You could just want to escape. Perhaps indulge in whatever vile things your character is famous for. Suborn and convert the drow to your foul gods.

I'll keep y'all posted

Will this be 3.5e or Pathfinder?

Pathfinder, but previous 3.5 stuff like BoVD is useable

INteresting,.... :)

Always interested in stuff you cook up Monkey! ;P

Thanks, Me too! :)

Yeah, It's just been one of those weeks.
All of my carefully crafted plans and schedules for resets on stage this week got shot out of the water with a nuke yesterday. :P

On top of that, having to deal with Diva-drama that I do NOT get paid enough for,... :/

Yeah,... Thanks the Lord for loving family, DVR'd TV super-hero shows, and PbP's. :)

And Hard Cider! ;)

Oh yeah, and YAY 'This'! ;)


Awesome!

(Um,... Now where did I put that Dex-swashy-cleric PC sheet?!?) ;P


Kewl,... :)


Wowsers, those are some pretty awesome spells, :)

"Necromancers get all the good stuff!" ;P (J/K)

When you have time, can you note the sources of those spells? Are they all from older books? Or from newer ones that I haven't gotten to look at yet? Just a lot of cool thematic spells in there.

<Cue Wizard drooling,...> ;P


Oi vay,
TOO much drama yesterday for a flippin' Monday. Seriously.

Normally I would say 'Save the drama for the Stage!' But the co-worker (teacher) yelling at me in a diva-style hissy fit was on the stage, so,... ;P

I do not get paid enough to deal with this nonsense. Seriously.

Let's just say it was a VERY long Monday, I've never been so glad to see a day end.

ALmost as glad as I'll be to see Thursday end. (Wed & Thu will be 2 very long day(s) of work, but at least these are semi-planned on!) :P

Hope everyone else's week got off to an easier start! :)

THIS is why God gave man Hard Cider. And Coffee. :)

Ooo! And swords! I also own swords,... <.< >.> :D

Yeah not so much down south here.
Yesterday I hung Christmas lights for the wife and kids (WITH the kids helping! For a change.) I was wearing a t-shirt and ended up breaking a sweat. In NOVEMBER! What is WRONG with the weather this year!?!?!? ;P


I hope I get a chance to hit the comic store! :)

I'm past due on my 2nd issue of Pathfinder Worldscape.
;P


Happy Finally-get-to-have-Thanksgiving Monkey! :)

Um,... I'm an old feller. I don't speak leet-speak. (I'm surprised I know what that is!) ;P

I'm presuming that ZFG = 'Zero F#@$% given'??? :/

Which, in this case, I'm also presuming is a good thing?!? :)

Enjoy the feast! (As I prepare to go home for lunch and munch leftovers on a plate or sammich or sumthin') ;P

We decided to drive back early today. Avoid 'game' traffic and what-not. (N.O. to Lafayette, 2 hours tops) Turns out there was a horrible incident on the I-10, on the long bridge close to Lafayette.

The Atchafalaya Basin Bridge? Ouch. Normally, I love that bridge. Nice, straight shot with low speeds - perfect for cruise control. And the scenery on either side can be nice. If there's an incident, however.......

We had our own problem crossing it on Friday morning. Just as we neared the west end of the bridge - TRAFFIC! Turns out, some genius had decided to set out cones and block off the right lane just off the bridge - they were picking them up, but it was still jamming everything up.

Yeppers. That's the one.

Still haven't seen the news footage on it, but apparently a semi truck burst into flames and they shut down EVERYTHING both ways from what I heard. (I only cared about the direction I was going in!) ;P

Yeah normally it's an easy straight shot, but ANY incident on the bridge turns it into a delay-a-thon at the very least. :/

Oi terrible Ragadolf.

How funny you live in Lafayette, I had one of my close friends just move down there as his wife is from there.

Same reason here.

My wife is from New Orleans. So I moved down here.
(Didn't realize before getting hitched that apparently Southern girls do not leave home. Except for vacations and Hurricanes.) ;P

So after Katrina we ended up in Lafayette. :)


Me too! ;P

Scary part? He really wasn't tailgating. The Semi backed up THAT much!
Scarier part? Not a mile before (about an hour of time, but not long distance-wise) I let that van in front of me from a cross street.

It could have/would have been us!!!! O_O


LOL!

Just a little re-post from the Treehouse, just so you know where I was this weekend. So far,... ;P

Hope all y'all enjoyed yer Turkey and Stuffing day! :)

My weekend? ----

Oi vay!

What a day!

Weekend started out good. Thanksgiving we had Wife's dad and cousins over. Had fun and food. Went to New Orleans on Friday, avoided Insanity that is 'Black Friday' and only had to deal with stupid traffic going into NO for the 'Bayou Classic' game on Sat. Fri evening we went to opening night of 'Celebration in the Oaks', where they cover City Park in Christmas lights and light sculptures. Had not been in a few years. I think we adults had more fun than the teenage kids. It was fun.

We decided to drive back early today. Avoid 'game' traffic and what-not. (N.O. to Lafayette, 2 hours tops) Turns out there was a horrible incident on the I-10, on the long bridge close to Lafayette. A semi-truck burst into flames (Apparently it was carrying Pepto-Bismol. This makes me seriously reconsider my choice of tummy ailment treatments!)

Fortunately we saw a warning LED sign on the road before we hit the closed section of road and got off, taking what should have been a simple, little-longer detour.

Short story, we left N.O. before 2pm, we finally got home at 9:30pm.
>_<

Scariest part of the entire trip? Watching the semi only one car ahead of us suddenly go into reverse (not slipping backwards, actually saw it's White back-up lights come on!) and back up into the car ahead of us! Then drive ahead as if nothing had happened.

I have never been so glad to be home !! ;P

On another thread, there is a discussion about how would you best describe Strange as a PF PC? One poster suggested that the intelligent cloak was his familiar.

OI... 1:22 am here.
STILL too much cleaning to do.
but, I DO have cornbread for the stuffing made, bread sitting out stale-ing (Is that a word? It is now!)
2 pumpkin pies made, (One sugar, one not) ;P
Pumpkin bread made,
Sausage balls made

OI, time for this old wizard to get a little sleep before getting up and doing the rest of the cooking!

(My wife is a very good cook. But I am SO. MUCH. FASTER. At EVERYthing.)
;)
Seriously, the lady cannot do multi-tasking. So when it comes to big meals that must be on a time-table, I get to do most of it. Usually she'll do one dish while I do another three. ;P

Since it is technically a new day,...

HAPPY THANKSGIVING TREEFORTERS!!!
:D

Oh they would love Central Park of course they can't go off leash like they do in my backyard. Hell I loved Central Park used to work a block away and walk through it, well part of it, everyday for lunch.

Yep, I have two. I would have a third too if it wasn't for that meddling wife of mine...

LOL!

Darn meddling wives!
We can't live with 'em, and I darn sure couldn't live without mine! ;P
