201 to 250 of 267 << first < prev | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | next > last >>

Male Human Fighter 2 | AC 17 19, T 11, FF 16 18 | HP 26/26 | Fort +6, Ref +1, Will +2; +1 vs fear | Init +1 | Perception +2 | Hero Points: 2 | Stamina 3/3

Methinks we're seeing the results of this AP being terrible about finding ways to keep the party together after killing Lamm, especially since Alistair and Nicoleta's characters don't particularly like each other.

I think we need the GM to weigh in a bit here. Would it be easier for you if we kept the party together? There could always be some reason for Alistair and I can't go to the Citadel, or the other group can't go to the palace, depending on where the adventure calls for us to go.


Female Human (Varisian) Cleric (Roaming Exorcist) 2 | 15/15 HP | AC 16 T 12 FF 14 | Fort +4 Ref +2 Will +6 | Initiative +2 | Perception +5 | Channel Energy 5/5 | Rebuke Death 5/6

Yep. This adventure is terrible about giving the PCs any reason to work together. Deliberately trying to undermine group cohesion practically guarantees killing it.


Male Human Fighter 2 | AC 17 19, T 11, FF 16 18 | HP 26/26 | Fort +6, Ref +1, Will +2; +1 vs fear | Init +1 | Perception +2 | Hero Points: 2 | Stamina 3/3

Especially since we aren't all friends sitting around a gaming table, but strangers playing over the internet.

It would be incredibly railroady, but one way to do it would have been for the initial tarot reading to put a geas on the entire group, requiring us to stay together until Korvosa is safe from danger. That would at least provide a reason for us to stick together, if not a particularly good one.


Female Human (Varisian) Cleric (Roaming Exorcist) 2 | 15/15 HP | AC 16 T 12 FF 14 | Fort +4 Ref +2 Will +6 | Initiative +2 | Perception +5 | Channel Energy 5/5 | Rebuke Death 5/6

Especially since everyone's job includes figuring out how to make sure that their character motivations bend to accommodate the needs of serving the group's adventure story. "I was just playing my character" is the worst excuse ever for bad PC behavior. Especially when followed up with "well if you don't want to do it MY way, you can just leave."

I've had to deal with my share of s@&@ groups - including one on the board here where it took four days for various players to post their turns, but when my turn came up (overnight, while I was asleep) I got multiple PMs within six hours slamming me for holding up the game as a tardy problem player, and another where the DM's buddy was in the group and the DM enabled him to threaten other PCs with violence up to and including rape - and I do not have patience for people deliberately undermining the group any more.

We also suffer from not having a "session zero" where I can sit down with all my players and make sure there aren't any tremendous conflicts of interest. Perhaps that's what recruitment is for, but I didn't get to recruit for this game.

It would be much easier for the party to keep together, as it prevents me from having to write two separate posts. I recognize that this game is moving slowly and that's on me, but it won't improve if I have to try and work two different groups back together.

I tend to agree with Alika here. While much of the story is on the GM to produce, players should probably try and suspend their disbelief when it comes to stuff like "my character would probably go off and do his own thing and hope the GM brings us back together." It's easier for the group and the GM.

I apologize for coming off unnecessarily harshly. One of the side-effects of the medication that I'm currently taking is paranoia and irrational anger. I should be taking the last of that tonight and hopefully my brain will go back to normal over the course of the week. (Unlike my tendons, which apparently are now going to be soft and prone to rupturing for months as a side effect.)


WotR Combat Map

Yikes! That doesn't sound good.

I'm not even necessarily opposed to a fair amount of player agency. I just prefer for the table to be as cohesive as possible.

My hope was that the promise of a big pay day would be enough to hold the group together until the next hook appears, but I can try and make two separate groups work for a little bit.

I'm allergic to penicillin, so when the doc had to prescribe antibiotics, I got the "fun" kind.


F Human Tattooed Sorcerer-2 | HP13/18 | AC13 T12 FF11 | F+4 R+2 W+4 CMD12 |Init+2 Per+4/+7 in light | Hawk Per+14

holy s$~&e! that sounds terrible!


WotR Combat Map

Hmm... this campaign stopped showing new post alerts.

I'll get a post up first thing tomorrow. Sorry for the delay.


Male Human Fighter 2 | AC 17 19, T 11, FF 16 18 | HP 26/26 | Fort +6, Ref +1, Will +2; +1 vs fear | Init +1 | Perception +2 | Hero Points: 2 | Stamina 3/3

I hate it when that happens. You think "Oh, no new updates", and then it turns out yes, there were updates, you just didn't see them.

I will be away this weekend finalizing last minutes details before we break ground and start to build the viking house. I will be able to post but it will be short responses.


F Human Tattooed Sorcerer-2 | HP13/18 | AC13 T12 FF11 | F+4 R+2 W+4 CMD12 |Init+2 Per+4/+7 in light | Hawk Per+14

when you get a chance to post again, I'm curious about this "viking house," Alistair


Male HP:17 AC:16 T:14 FF:12 F:+1 R:+8 W:+0 Perc:+4 Init:+6 Rapier +6, 1d6+4 CMB:+1 CMD:+15 Human Swashbuckler 1 (Inspired Blade) Rogue 1

Since there was still snow on the ground our meeting was a little shorter than I thought it would be. I will be happy to tell you all about the viking house..when I get the time.

I came home Saturday night and ended up going into AFib. I was admitted to the hospital and spent several days on blood thinning medications. I had too many test to remember and blood drawn every 6 hours. Not a fun time at all. I ended up getting a cardio version with one shock at 250 Joules. I am soar as hell from the burns and at home now. I will try and get a post up when I can but I will be honest...it is not my main priority right now. lol Bot me as needed for the next couple of days please. Thank you.


Female Dhampir Monk 2 | HP -3/15 | AC 17 T 17 FF 12 | Fort +4 Ref +7 Will +5 | Initiative +4 | Perception +9 darkvision, low-light vision

That totally sucks. :|

Rest up and I hope you feel better.


F Human Tattooed Sorcerer-2 | HP13/18 | AC13 T12 FF11 | F+4 R+2 W+4 CMD12 |Init+2 Per+4/+7 in light | Hawk Per+14

holy s%*@e! Feel better soon!


WotR Combat Map

No worries, Alistair. Take as much time as you need and get healthy.

On a separate note, I'm down at Disneyworld until the 13th. Thanks for your patience until then. :)


F Human Tattooed Sorcerer-2 | HP13/18 | AC13 T12 FF11 | F+4 R+2 W+4 CMD12 |Init+2 Per+4/+7 in light | Hawk Per+14

have fun!

Thank you everyone for your words. I am doing much better and feel I can start to spread my wings so to speak. I am slowly getting myself back into PBP games. I will post a few times here and there but should be back to normal posting in a couple of days or so. I am not pushing myself to quickly as my wife would not be happy. So baby steps...

Enjoy Disney..The Star Wars Jedi Temple was a blast for my kids.


Male HP:17 AC:16 T:14 FF:12 F:+1 R:+8 W:+0 Perc:+4 Init:+6 Rapier +6, 1d6+4 CMB:+1 CMD:+15 Human Swashbuckler 1 (Inspired Blade) Rogue 1

So some details about the viking house since I am up and can not sleep at the moment.

A group of friends (that I met some 20 years ago in the SCA) and I got together about building a Viking village on land the we would purchase in Michigan. It took some time but we did finally get the land and we started to break ground on certain areas. Each person can buy in for a piece of the 10 acres to build their own period viking home. We limited the houses to under 200 sq feet so that we can avoid the inspections and permits. We have a main pathway where we are building a common area and places of business...Black smith, bakery etc. We also have an area that is designated as the temple area where we will build our long hall and place of worship. As time goes by and we finish building the houses of founding families and other buildings, we will expand to allow others to come and stake their claim on the 10 acres. There has been some talk of doing educational stuff with local schools. I am looking forward to building this...BUT because of what I just went through...being on blood thinning meds and building a period viking house in the middle of the wilderness FAR FAR FAR away from most modern luxuries...like a hospital. Well I may have to put it on hold for a few more weeks till after I am off the meds...lol.

Hey, guys! I'm back. Thanks for your patience.

I'm going to try and get a post up some time today, but it might be tomorrow. I've got a lot to do on my first day back. :)


Female Dhampir Monk 2 | HP -3/15 | AC 17 T 17 FF 12 | Fort +4 Ref +7 Will +5 | Initiative +4 | Perception +9 darkvision, low-light vision

Hope you had fun. The family would love to do Disneyland again, but it's not in the near-future budget.

I have a niece that lives in Southern California and her and her husband have middle-level year passes.

*Envious*


F Human Tattooed Sorcerer-2 | HP13/18 | AC13 T12 FF11 | F+4 R+2 W+4 CMD12 |Init+2 Per+4/+7 in light | Hawk Per+14

Hope you had fun!
And @Alistair, that sounds awesome! You need any archaeologists to help with anything, you let me know :)


Female Dhampir Monk 2 | HP -3/15 | AC 17 T 17 FF 12 | Fort +4 Ref +7 Will +5 | Initiative +4 | Perception +9 darkvision, low-light vision

Just a heads up to everyone. I'll be at Kublacon this coming weekend (Thursday through Monday). I'll have internet access, but I'm not sure how much free time I'll have to post. If I know me, I'll still try to get out at least a post a day if it's warranted, but ... *shrugs*.


WotR Combat Map

Thanks for the warning, Nicoleta. Have fun!


F Human Tattooed Sorcerer-2 | HP13/18 | AC13 T12 FF11 | F+4 R+2 W+4 CMD12 |Init+2 Per+4/+7 in light | Hawk Per+14

heads up: I'm travelling over the next few days. I SHOULD still have some access, but will have limited opportunities to post. Please BOT me if needed.


Female Dhampir Monk 2 | HP -3/15 | AC 17 T 17 FF 12 | Fort +4 Ref +7 Will +5 | Initiative +4 | Perception +9 darkvision, low-light vision

It's coming up to the time for my family's yearly camping trip. I'll be lacking access to the internet from the 28th through the 1st (Friday through Monday). Feel free to bot me if needed.


F Human Tattooed Sorcerer-2 | HP13/18 | AC13 T12 FF11 | F+4 R+2 W+4 CMD12 |Init+2 Per+4/+7 in light | Hawk Per+14

it'll be difficult to really get her innuendos a la bot :)

True dat!

Thanks for the heads up, guys!

I will be out of town till late Monday night. I an starting the actual construction on the viking house and will a bit busy. So my posting will be limited at best as it will be from my phone. BOT as needed.

Just got home. We got a lot done over the weekend. Foundation, floor and walls are all done. We also wrapped the structure in water proofing.

I get to go back up in a couple of days to start filling in the dirt to cover up most of the house. I also will start building my stone wall.

Then it is on to the loft and roof. Still need to build a door and complete the fire place in the floor. Then after all that is done I get to start work on the carvings inside. I have a few people I know who love to do these things. That will help out as I will be very busy forging the a frame to hang all my cast iron pots from.


Female Dhampir Monk 2 | HP -3/15 | AC 17 T 17 FF 12 | Fort +4 Ref +7 Will +5 | Initiative +4 | Perception +9 darkvision, low-light vision

That sounds incredibly cool.

I'm sore just thinking about it, though.


WotR Combat Map

I'm with Nicoleta, it sounds super cool. Would you be open to uploading and sharing some photos?

Apologies for the brief pause in posting, btw. Just got back from a family reunion.


F Human Tattooed Sorcerer-2 | HP13/18 | AC13 T12 FF11 | F+4 R+2 W+4 CMD12 |Init+2 Per+4/+7 in light | Hawk Per+14

quick heads up: I will be travelling for the next few days (Thurs-Sun). I may or may not have internet access. Apologies in advance

Don't worry, we'll take good care of Danni. Yeah, it'll be just like a weekend in Vegas. ;)

She'll will wake up on Monday wondering, "Where did that tattoo come from?"

*Nicoleta looks away innocently*


F Human Tattooed Sorcerer-2 | HP13/18 | AC13 T12 FF11 | F+4 R+2 W+4 CMD12 |Init+2 Per+4/+7 in light | Hawk Per+14

I have to do one more bout of travelling. This will probably be it for a while though. Looks like Tues thru Sunday. Will do my best to check in as I can, but no guarantees. Apologies in advance

I am at Pennsic War 48 till August 11th and I will be back to normal posting at that time.

I have my phone and I have the ability to post but the responses will be limited and at odd times. I will have to limit how often I post as my wife has gotten my oldest daughter involved in pokemon go. This is eating up a lot of our data for our phones. I want her to enjoy the game so I am limiting what I do with my phone until we get back home. If it is needed..bot me.
Thank you.


Female Dhampir Monk 2 | HP -3/15 | AC 17 T 17 FF 12 | Fort +4 Ref +7 Will +5 | Initiative +4 | Perception +9 darkvision, low-light vision

Everyone in my household (spouse and both kids) is heavily involved in Pokemon except for me. Video games, card game, TV, you name it. I never saw the draw. *shrug*


F Human Tattooed Sorcerer-2 | HP13/18 | AC13 T12 FF11 | F+4 R+2 W+4 CMD12 |Init+2 Per+4/+7 in light | Hawk Per+14

I helped my kids with the card game when they were young, but yeah... doesn't excite me. Although I did pick up some badges along the way. To me, it always seemed like some bizarre gladiatorial combat thing. Bread and circuses
Enjoy the war Alistair!


Female Dhampir Monk 2 | HP -3/15 | AC 17 T 17 FF 12 | Fort +4 Ref +7 Will +5 | Initiative +4 | Perception +9 darkvision, low-light vision

When it first came out, an aunt of mine looked at it and laughed. "It's cockfighting!" she said.

*shrug*

Friends and I did play Magic when it first came out, but we shifted to Jyhad as soon as it was released and we never went back. Haven't done any CCGs in a long time, though.


WotR Combat Map

I've always been a big Pokemon fan, but I was a kid when it first came out. Prior to that, I was always interested creatures, like dinosaurs and Godzilla.

And now I own all the bestiaries and monster manuals, so I think I can connect the dots.


Female Dhampir Monk 2 | HP -3/15 | AC 17 T 17 FF 12 | Fort +4 Ref +7 Will +5 | Initiative +4 | Perception +9 darkvision, low-light vision

So are you going to be making the jump to 2E?


Male Human Fighter 2 | AC 17 19, T 11, FF 16 18 | HP 26/26 | Fort +6, Ref +1, Will +2; +1 vs fear | Init +1 | Perception +2 | Hero Points: 2 | Stamina 3/3

I'd prefer we stick with 1E since we started with 1E. There are options that I suspect several of us built our characters around that aren't available yet (Alika in particular).


Female Dhampir Monk 2 | HP -3/15 | AC 17 T 17 FF 12 | Fort +4 Ref +7 Will +5 | Initiative +4 | Perception +9 darkvision, low-light vision

Oh, I wouldn't expect this game to jump to second edition. They don't even have the rules for dhampirs in second edition yet. ;)

In fact, I hope none of my current games change rules mid-campaign. Been there, done that. Memories of changing from AD&D 2nd to 3.0 (and then 3.5) mid-game come to mind. *shudder*

I was just curious if R0B0GEISHA was planning on eventually making the jump.


Male Human Fighter 2 | AC 17 19, T 11, FF 16 18 | HP 26/26 | Fort +6, Ref +1, Will +2; +1 vs fear | Init +1 | Perception +2 | Hero Points: 2 | Stamina 3/3

Oh, okay, good. I don't mind giving 2E a try, and I may convert fully after I play a few games of it if I enjoy it, but I'd rather not convert anything ongoing.


WotR Combat Map

At some point, yes. I think it looks pretty cool.

Not this campaign though, this will stay 1E. :)


WotR Combat Map

Aaaaaaand I'm just now realizing that what I wrote a few days ago didn't actually post in Gameplay.


Female Dhampir Monk 2 | HP -3/15 | AC 17 T 17 FF 12 | Fort +4 Ref +7 Will +5 | Initiative +4 | Perception +9 darkvision, low-light vision

No worries. 'Cause we all know Nicoleta is a patient sort.

Well, she's getting better at it at least. ;)


WotR Combat Map

Oof. Sorry for dropping off the map.

My partner is going on a honeymoon soon and work has been crazy to make up for the lost time. Should be cleared up now though.
