I love this game for all of the reasons already mentioned. Plus I get to dress up like a girl.

Mothman, how close are we to D-Day for the birth of your new addition?

9 weeks or so.


Heh. JUST long enough to get ready for it, (If you haven't already) But not (quite) long enough to panic! ;)


9 weeks, scary. Mrs AllDMsareEVIL has 19 weeks left and I am trying to pretend I am chilled out about it.

Second one for me, I'm just trying not to remember the sleepless nights and the nappy changes.

If all goes to play, I will become a house-daddy and the wife will go back to work. So I get all the fun of dirty nappies and crying baby.

Didn't realize the group had so many babies on the way! Good luck Moth and ADMAE! I and my partner are DINKs (Double Income No Kids), and intend to stay that way. We love our nieces and nephews and our cat, but have decided not to have any munchkins of our own. I have a great deal of admiration for all you parents out there!

Back to game stuff...

Mothman, I'm assuming that Keildrithe would have left the treasure listed below with the horses when they were parked outside of Lichford:

2 silver goblets – worth 50gp each
. pottery bowl – worth 1gp
. masterwork shortsword – worth 310gp new
. Atrek's masterwork longbow (and 20 arrows - incl. in gear above) – (composite longbow with +2 strength bonus, worth 600gp)
. Gnoll shortbow and 20 of Atrek's arrows
. pewter flagon (from wolf-men) – worth 500gp
. hack silver bracelet (from wolf-men) – worth 200gp
. eight tarnished silver torcs (from undead hands)

I'm thinking I should erase them from my sheet... after all, what are the odds, after several days/weeks, that we would find the horses where we left them with all the stuff we left on them? Pretty low, in my opinion...

It’s entirely up to you what you want to have ditched along the way; certainly some of that stuff (particularly the weapons) would have been pretty bulky.

Keep in mind though that when you abandoned the horses (at least as far as I could see) you had no intention of returning to them – Laithe set them free as it was decided that being found with horses easily identifiable as the ones stolen from Barg would not be a good thing. I don’t know if all the players clearly realized this at the time, but the characters would have. So it wouldn’t have been a case of leaving stuff with the horses with the intent of picking it up later and then not being able to; it would have been a deliberate decision to abandon this stuff at the time.

Which wouldn’t have been necessary; the intent was always to sell some of that gear in Lichford, I guess in all the subsequent excitement either that was forgotten or people assumed the gear was still with the horses. In fact Stonty could have (and I assumed did) bring some of your stuff to town on his wagon.

Whatever the fate of the other items, the silver torcs were from the tomb under the hill, so won’t have been with the horses.


Word of warning, the shop steamer blew up yesterday and spiked the mains. It killed the printer, the laptop power supply and the mouse plugged into the usb port. The laptop is acting real strange since then, locking up for long periods, Blue screens of Death, random reboots. I am praying that it is only corrupt drivers and not damage to the 5 volt circuit or any of the micro electrics.

So if I suddenly disappear, you know why.

Thanks for letting us know, hope it works out alright.

What's a shop steamer?

A fabric steamer for getting creases out of dresses, like a big kettle with an iron attached, it short circuited and took out all the circuit breakers amongst other things.

Mothman:

Spoiler:

Some time ago, you asked what kind of magical items we would like to see fall into our PCss hands. If you're still open to suggestions, I'd like to recommend that Keildrithe's longsword--which he dug out from his father's grave--should gradually exhibit magical properties as he gains levels. If you would like to see some examples of how this might work, I highly recommend purchasing a PDF copy of the 2nd edition of FFG's Midnight campaign setting, available at http://rpg.drivethrustuff.com/product_info.php?products_id=2718&it=1. A real bargain, at $10.00 (it's the campaign world I currently use in my table top game). That book includes examples of covenant items, items that gradually reveal their powers to their wielders, if the wielder's alignment, values, goals, etc., align with those of the item. They are not necessarily intelligent items, though some of them are. Covenant items are always unique, and have a back story that explains their origins and powers.

Here are examples of fan-made covenant items:

http://www.againsttheshadow.org/index.php?topic=1805.msg18329#msg18329

I much prefer the covenant item concept presented in Midnight than the approach taken by WotC to develop a similar concept in Weapons of Legacy.

Anyway, let me know what you think...

Did you see my response? I’m happy for you to tell me what powers and abilities you would like the sword to have and when / how they might reveal themselves, and we’ll work together from there.

Yes, sorry for not replying sooner. Thanks for being open to the idea. Give me some time to think on it... I want to make sure that whatever I come up with has the right fit, flavour and balance.

Sorry I haven't posted before now. Over the week-end my wifi card wheezed its last few breaths, and so I've been unable to check the boards until now.

No worries Arc, hope it didn't / doesn't cost too much too fix.


Been ill but I am back now.

Good to know, hope it was nothing too serious.

I caught a stomach bug that was going around, lots of projectile vomiting and migraines, wore off just in time to go back to work. I also tore/strained something inside as it now hurts to move my right arm above chest hight or to lift anything heavier than a pint of beer. Well in truth the pint of beer hurts as well, but what are you going to do????

Fair call.

Yeah, I had a bad cough earlier this year that persisted for a couple of months, and developed pleurisy from that. Don't know if that's what's causing your pain, but it sounds similar. Frikken hurt to lift my arm, cough, breathe ... I figured at the time it was a bit melodramatic to describe the pain as like someone was stabbing a knife between my ribs, until the doctor used that exact description to me.

Hope it starts getting better soon (as I said, don't know if it's the same thing, but I found panadol did nothing but nurofen helped).

The Exchange

Got computer problems, will post when its sorted.

Cheers


Sheesh guys! Never thought I'd be glad to 'only' be a diabetic! ;P

Glad your feeling better at least ADMAE, (You too Moth!) ;)

If nothing else, the pain you get from lifting the pint is hopefully canceled out by what's IN the pint! ;D

Hey all - I've been slack on the discussion thread, so my apologies. Work's exceedingly busy at the moment and using all my free time to try and post in-game (and not hold things up).

Speaking of which, I'll be out this weekend (Friday and maybe Monday included). Got a big bucks weekend planned and as the best man things will likely get messy...

Please don't allow Laithe to hold things up.

The Exchange

Have fun, Ash.

Cheers


Sounds Good Ash!
Have Fun!

Where are you going for that one?

Moth, is there a city you already have a name for that would make sense as Ana's home, or should I make it up as I go?

There is Atus, which is the capital city of the grand but crumbling Atuscan Empire, and also the centre of the church of Arton. I think that's the only city down south that I've specifically named, so if you'd prefer not to come from that ancient and thriving metropolis, you are free to make something up.


LapTop took another step towards death today, I have now lost all the USB ports and I have no PS/2 port, so I am mouse-less. I think this maybe its swan song, so if I disappear you know why.


Wow. That's less of a step and more of a big jump!
Good luck with the PC there ADMAE!

Good luck with that ADMAE.

Is it true that all Aussies have been promised a free Victoria beer if you beat us Poms at the Ashes?

Haven't heard that one.

But if its VB they're giving out, well, you can keep the Ashes for all I care.

The Exchange

I heard it was Victoria Beer that put redeemable ads in the press, someone worked out that could be about 10 million free beers.. Sounds like a reason to let us English win for a change.

Cheers


I am very un-english, I don't follow cricket. But free beer, now that is always welcome.

Hey guys, doctor's advise as of yesterday is that the baby is probably going to come early, possibly as soon as this weekend. So if I disappear for a bit you probably know why.


That,... would be a good reason for disappearing!
:D

Good luck with that!

And Happy Thanksgiving to all my online friends! (Yanks and Non-yanks alike!) ;P


Scary and exciting at the same time! Best of luck, some one told me to dodge the first 3 nappies, apparently they are evil.

The Exchange

All the best to you and your family, Mothman. Second time around it's a breeze, isn't it Rags?

As for the cricket I beginning to wish I hadn't mentioned it after Sidwell tore us apart. Three in one over. Three! Me I just love sport, my current favourite is American Football.

Cheers

Congrats Dad. Is that one of each now? Cheers mate all the best.


Congratulations, I am cuffed to bits for you.

Unfortunately my laptop has died so I am posting from my phone. This might affect my posting speed as it sucks to post from here. DMPC me if required.
