Welcome to the game and thank you all for applying!

Before we get started, I'd like everyone to check in and touch base, if you want to rebuild your character based on what the others are playing that's fine, just brief me on what's going to be different. In the next couple of days I'll be giving the sheets a closer look to make sure everything is consistent and you didn't miss anything.

Here are some expectations before we get started:

• I'll be rolling everyone's initiative, some saves and other reflexes rolls as necessary to keep the game moving smoothly.

• Initiative will be run in blocks. Specifically, I'll roll everyone's initiative and those PC's whose initiative rolls are together consecutively can act without waiting for the others ahead of them to act first. This is still consistent with the rules, as we just assume those who haven't acted yet are delaying. To make things easier to adjudicate, first to post is assume to act first. I understand that this might be a little confusing when laid out in text form, but I can provide an example if you wish.

• I will not be using Experience Points, instead the PC's will level at the times recommended by the Adventure Path.

• If someone could volunteer to keep track of gold and other loot found while adventuring, it would save me some significant time. I'd prefer it if you could set up a Google Doc Spreadsheet that everyone can edit, but I'm open to other methods if you prefer.

• I'm considering giving the group Hero Points whenever the AP suggests a Harrow Card drawing, but I'd like to hear your feelings about that first.

• If you don't post within 24 hours and haven't advised that you'll be gone, I reserve the right to bot you. Since I really don't like making PC decisions, I may have another player bot instead. If you are gone for more than 2 weeks or more without warning, you may be replaced.

• We will start at 6 players, but one or two are bound to drop eventually. I will re-recruit when we fall below 5 or a crucial role is missing in the group. I tried to invite some characters who can fill multiple rolls to avoid having huge gaps when attrition occurs.

Let me know if you have any questions, and thanks again for applying to be in my game!

no question so far, thank you for giving me another chance at this AP.

Checking in. Thanks for the opportunity!

I think the Hero Points mechanic works better than the Harrow Points mechanic, although the latter is a bit more thematically appropriate.

No other questions at this time.


Male M,

Looking forward to playing!

@Dr. Stefan: Did I see you are playing in another Carrion Crown game?

I don't mind keeping track of loot and things as it accumulates.

Hero points work for me! They seem a bit more straight forward than the cards.

Checking in and excited to go on an exciting journey!

I am up for either Harrow Points or Hero Points. I don't have any knowledge about this AP, besides what the Player's Guide informed me of, so I am excited to see what could possibly be haunting Harrowstone and the rest of the adventure!

Most likely! Or maybe it's a gnome wizard that thinks that it is hilarious to perpetuate rumors of haunted mansions and this is his latest lair. :D

Isn't it the Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh backstory? (yes, i'm an OLD player..^^)

@Dr. Stefan: Did I see you are playing in another Carrion Crown game?

This is the fourth Carrion Crown game I've played in with this character. The first two fizzled out after the other players lost interest and stopped posting; the third I resigned from because I didn't click with the GM and the posting rate was far too slow for my taste (3-4 posts a week, total). None of the other games got much past the reading of the will.

@Vivian: Hey! We're also both in the same Shattered Star campaign!

Checking in and looking forward to this. Never done Carrion Crown and never played with Occult playtest so this will be interesting.

Party looks fairly well balanced, hopeful for success!

I really enjoyed your posting in that other game. I look forward to playing with you. Hope Sentir and Herzog can build some kind of rapport (good or bad!).

I agree, I like a fast pace and I post everyday (if not more)!

Glad we have a fighter. My other campaign has no solid melee characters so fights are always a bit touch and go. Glad you have you along!

No worries! Drace will do his best to keep you all safe and hopefully help out with controlling the mess of enemies!

It is entirely plausible that it was; I've only been playing RPGs since 2009.

The Gameplay thread is now active, feel free to make an introductory post and role-play a bit if you wish.

Since the consensus is to use Hero Points, that's probably what I'll do although they won't come up in the story for quite a bit. In any event, you will not start with any.

Later tonight I'll be looking through your character sheets in more detail and sending you a private message if there are any issues. If you don't receive a PM from me, assume everything is good.


Male M,

Dr. Hertzog is making me feel under-dressed and my posts very short!

I've used the off-camera robbery scene in the previous times I've run this character, so I just copied-and-pasted that part.


Male M,

We have alot of high Int. characters in this group.

Are we going to have to fight ghosts with a casket on our backs?

Great.


Male M,

That teifling is going to be trouble.

Sorry, long post, but Vivian is quite talkative...^^


Male M,

Is there something we are supposed to do at this point?


Gamemaster | CC Map | S4 Map

Not necessarily, just giving everyone a chance to do some role-playing if they wish before we move to the grave site, which will be up later tonight.

I ask this in every PbP I'm in...

IRL, where is everyone located? I'm in central New York State, USA, about 50 miles south of Syracuse. I'm currently on Eastern Daylight Time (UTC-4:00).


Male M,

I'm due South of you in PA, Stefan. Almost a direct line south, actually!

Looks like we are in a slow weekend

Male M,

Hope it isn't distasteful to look that close at books. Assume he is being discreet and trying to distract himself. Not casing the joint....


Male M,

I apologize for lack of posts but after dial-up ate my posts for the third time, I gave up. Will be back in civilization this afternoon!

All,

I have a big trial coming up Wed-Tuesday of next week. I hope to still be able to post regularly, but if I'm not responsive and slowing things down please NPC me.

Thanks!

I hope you're a lawyer and not the defendant! Best of luck regardless!


Male M,

This Adventure lacks the GM rails I so sorely desire.

Male M,

I am going to go with Drace tomarrow to the shops and then the Inn. Want to go to the nice one or the poorer one, Drace? I assume we'll stay the night at the Lorrimor house.

Lets hit the nice one. Travelers and rich people will hopefully give us a less superstitious or biased reply.

Plus anyone watching Drace and Sentir wander around will see them doing exactly what they expect travelers to be doing.

Fair enough. Sentir naturally gravitates to lower income places. being a thread-bare scribe does that to you, I suppose. But hey, Drace is buying!


Male M,

Same plan Drace, or do we get to play detective?

I hesitate to jump in directly or we'll get lynched by the locals.
