Hello everyone, Endless here!

I'm hoping to try out my core monk, who is going to be combat maneuver focused rather than damage focused. In other words, he will probably be less than effective for the first few levels. But I'm looking forward to trying him nonetheless.

Also, I'm at a conference all weekend but I'll try to get a better gameplay post up later today.

And because the GM requested it: f$$#.

Hello! Trex here.

I'll try to have my character-building process done by the end of today.

You too!

Also good to meet you too, Pirate Rob!


Yarr!


| DM | Absalom Initiation

I had no idea you guys hadn't met! How very pleased I am to have brought you together.

By way of context (at least from my perspective, I imagine everyone has their own lens with which to view the PbP world here):

Rob is my local Venture-Captain, a great guy whose characters are always tons of fun.

Oladon (Rokdor) is one of my longest-time PbP buddies here on the boards, and one of the people I have gamed with the most here. (Note: characters also fun)

And Trex I've met recently, both as a GM and player, and have really enjoyed playing with - and Tek and I both independently thought to invite him and EF, so it had to happen. (Random coincidence: within a few minutes of each other, both of them accepted the invite by saying "Absolutely!" which was nice.)

You guys didn't need to know all this, but I find it interesting to think about the various social circles that develop here on the boards, especially in the PbP community. Okay, now to post in that other thread!

GM: You probably already knew this, but as a note I've both played and GMed The Confirmation a few times.

A few:
This will by my 15th time through, between playing and GMing

I played it the first time Pirate Rob DM'd it...


| DM | Absalom Initiation

Yeah, I expected most everyone here has been through this scenario multiple times, on both sides of the screen. I'm hoping to still keep it entertaining, and I'm confident no one will abuse player knowledge to get it done.

You remind me of something I meant to say earlier, though. Every one of the players in this game has DM'ed far more than I have. I will try to get everything right, but if I goof up on something or appear to have misunderstood a rule, feel free to let me know.

Getting all the rules right is overrated anyway.

Also seeing new things already. It's been awhile since I've read The Confirmation but I'm pretty sure I've never encountered or GMed fleas before.

After we're done I'll have to go look and see if there are any other encounters I've never done.

Fair enough, and a useful thing for me to keep in mind. I mostly just don't want to tip the scales unfairly. I originally planned to have the fleas do their super-long jumps and attack, but that's a full-round action for them, which they couldn't do in the surprise round, so I had to revise my post.

On another topic - I'll be away this weekend, taking my son to compete in a mountain bike race. Might get a post up tonight, tomorrow I'll be on the sidelines handing water bottles to riders as they fly by, won't be posting much.

That is nice context to know, thanks Khel! And thanks again for thinking of me. :)

I've actually never played The Confirmation, though I did run it once some eighteen months ago or so. I'll also be running it five times at GenCon, so I'm glad for the opportunity to get a session in on the player side too.

Just thought I'd make a public service announcement since I just tried to report my first Core game as a GM and had this issue come up twice (and I've seen it happen in two other games already too):

If you already had a character number registered before the Core Campaign (even if that character had no games reported on them yet), you can not make them a Core character. They are by default a "regular" Organized Play character. When the GM reports the game, a message will show up next to the reporting saying that you have not received credit for the game because it is the wrong character type. You have to create a new Core character; as of now, you can not switch from regular to core using the reporting system the way a GM could change your faction for you if you wanted.

Just wanted to make sure no one else has made that mistake before we get too far. I made that mistake when Core was first announced and had to shuffle my numbers around to re-register a few Core PCs properly.

Hey y'all - since you've taken care of the minotaur (and that spell was the key, he was about to do some serious wreckin'), I am fairly confident that at least some of you will survive the remaining encounter. Given that, I'm thinking about chronicles, and I'd you to please post the following:

Well, since all we've got left is a bit of roleplay, and I doubt I'll be able to kill you with that, I've reported this session. I got a funny error message about prestige not counting. Everyone should have received 2 prestige points, please let me know if that did not happen.

Chronicles are here:

Huck

Sobestian

Rokdor

Oldmar

Tog

It was lots of fun playing with you all! Anyone up for another game? I've been thinking about Frostfur Captives, but I'm open to suggestions.

That error about prestige not counting comes up a lot. With the Core/regular thing I've gotten some errors about the characters being the wrong type when they're not too. Sometimes you just have to report it anyways, the system has all sorts of problems. The physical copy is what really matters anyways.

Thanks GM! I signed Huck up for a different game that's just getting starting but I'll gladly bring along a different character if this group wants to keep going. Frostfur Captives is a fun one.

Yeah, don't worry about the message. It just shows that the player has played this before. I don't think they've come up with a way to discriminate between replayable adventures.

Sobestian would be up for any adventure.

Rokdor would be up for another as well.

Sorry for the greatly-reduced posting... unexpected company through tomorrow.

Thanks for running Khel! And thanks again for the invite, I've really enjoyed playing with this group. Oldmar is definitely up for another!


| DM | Absalom Initiation

Well, we've got at least four up for continuing, so I'll get a thread together over the next couple of days for Frostfur Captives. I'll shoot Tog a message to see if he'd like to come along as well.

Huck may need to make a new PC, and I think Rokdor is still digging her way out of a pile of posts after all her slacking, so real launch will likely be later this week.

I've already got the PC ready to go. He's an undead sorcerer. Halfling, of course, since I decided all of my characters will be Flaxseeds from now on. I just need to load his stats into his profile, which will take less than 5 minutes once I get home. So I'm ready to go whenever.


| DM | Absalom Initiation

Sounds good, EF. I guess any delay will come from the powerful slacking combination of Slackadon and Slackhel!

In the meantime, here's a gameplay thread for everyone to dot in for Frostfur.


| DM | Absalom Initiation

Trying again on getting the Frostfur Captives gameplay thread launched. Please dot there.

For those who are interested, I learned that when you create a new gameplay thread, you can't dot it and then delete the dot post, like you can when you simply join the thread after it's created.

Yep. I made that mistake on one of the first games I created. I ended up contacting Web support, who fixed it.
