Welly well well I lost me gameplay dot. Thanks TCG for posting in discussion. Reading up now.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Ditto that. I think I accidentally hit the little x on one of those bleary eyed mornings and missed that there was a new post in the game thread. Sorry!

Happy to help.

Male Human Bard 1/Barbarian 1

Very sorry, I had computer issues. First, my net went out for a few days, and then my laptop bag had a critical failure, and a few components broke, rendering it useless and in dire need of repair. But I'm back, now. Will catch up in the game thread soon.

FYI: tomorrow evening I'm headed to brazil until the end of the month. I'm not sure how often ill be able to post. Feel free to NPC me as needed. Thank you.

Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

First off, I owe you guys a huge apology. I never meant to drop this game and I let things go for way too long, especially without any update on what was going on, mostly real life stuff. Since I last posted here I've had two summer colds and a family vacation all of which sucked up time. One of the things that keeps things going over in Avalon that I don't have here is that I can hand over at least some of the GM duties when things get busy, while here I'm pretty much in charge of all of it all the time. Obviously I can't handle that. At this point I think I need either a co-GM or two or I'm going to have to pull the plug on this game for good since I truly cannot handle it all on my lonesome. So if anyone is interested in helping run the arcs for the folks in other units from their PC, please let me know. If there is no interest than I think I owe it to everyone to just let it go rather than keep failing to keep the story going properly. And again I am so so so so sorry for dropping the ball on this game.


Male I am a meat Popsicle

As an Avalon player, I know how busy you have been, Lynora. I was just trying to give a gentle reminder.

Is anyone else still around and wanting to play?


Male I am a meat Popsicle

Also, the Games of Chance thread has slipped into my inactive pile. Can you do anything about that, Lyn?


Male Weremonkey Rogue/Ranger/Trickster

I'm still here!

This was my idea after all! I also know Tiny Coffee Golem should still be around, if he desires to come back.


Male Drow (noble) 14 Ranger

I love my character here, so...im in


M Extrodinaraly Contrary Meatbag Fourm pyromancer 1

I actually have a character idea, should a new player still be acceptable.

And if you want, i can co-dm. I'm on a lot of the time and rarely get sick. Just tell me what you are trying to do and i can keep it happening.


Male I am a meat Popsicle

Well, it looks like we have three to four who still want to play, so I say we go for it.

But we need Lyn to make it not be in my inactive games pile.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

I think all I have to do is post in the game thread and that will do it. I'll do that when I get home. Posting from my phone currently.

I am as always around, I blame technology for this wondrous ability. If it starts up again I would like to change my character a bit if allowed.

That seems fair. Let me know what changes you want to make.

A new player is definitely acceptable. :)

And I would appreciate it. Mostly it would involve running the occasional combat, which I know you can do since you've done it a few times over in the Avalon thread. I would PM you the details regarding what I intended. A lot of this game is more about the investigations than the fights, but people do keep resisting arrest. :)


Male Fighter/Barbarian 3

I'm still here, too.


Male Half elf. 3 Cavalier(Beast Rider)/Fighter

I stopped getting updates for this how odd.

Alright then.

Combat i can do, that's the easy part (at least for me.)

lyn:
my charecter is planned on being a ghast. It has a cr of 2, but the bestary recommends a cr of 3. Note that with a cr of three, 2 levels of ghast must be taken, while cr of two means only one must be taken. Ghasts are rather powerful- it's your choice. heck, it's your choice weather or not to even allow this. (note. the feat "civilized ghoulishness" will be taken, granting a +10 to checks to appear human and the ability to turn off stench, so don't worry about him fitting in.


Male Tiefling Tattooed Sorcerer/Soulknife 3

So how many confirmed players do we have now?


What it says on the tin; Caffiene addict 20

I'm still floating around.


I stopped seeing updates for this, around now. Also Hey TCG how you been?

I'm here as well.

Spoiler:
I have a couple of problems here. One is that undead are not granted any legal rights. In the eyes of the law they're dead and thus fair game for anything. There is campaign for undead rights in the undercity and I could potentially see allowing this in the tradition of Reg Shoe and the watch being perpetually desperate for people. But this character would constantly be dealing with the problems of working in an environment hostile to the otherwise living. Which brings me to my other problem...how is he satisfying his er...special dietary needs? Because eating people is definitely not going to go over well here. If you're okay with the fact that he'd be dealing with prejudice even in the open-minded warrens watch and can give me a good answer on the diet problem than I'll allow it at the CR 2.

lyn:

Most of the time, he passes for human easily.
Second, yeah, I'm fine with that. Not much different from being a tiefling.
Undead don't need to eat, they just have cravings.
A home-brew solution i found-
Blood berries - homebrew thing i found, really neat, basically substitute flesh for undead made by necromancers. He found an experimental bush in the now-dead necromancer's basement, and this is why the hunger does not overtake him. These Berries grow rapidly, and he has about enough for 3 days of fighting off ghoul hunger. the longer he goes without it, the harder it is to control himself. He often puts it into his tea. He has a thing for tea.

Sorry for how long it too to respond.

Yeah, that answers my concerns. Welcome to the watch Constable Shoe. ;P

(Yes, you can pick a different name...just couldn't resist making the reference.)

Sorry, but i don't get it.

Anyway, my full charceter bio is huge, because of his item list. (Tons of useful, small gp items.)

Is scholar allowed here?

It's a discworld thing. Pratchett's discworld novels, especially the watch ones, were a major inspiration for this setting.

Yes, scholar is allowed.

Backstory in next post


M Extrodinaraly Contrary Meatbag Fourm pyromancer 1

back story and edit to previous.:

Eagun used to be a noble, low, but technically a noble. His family is a long line of kinghts, and he is ever loyal to the king he would often patrol the outer edge of the city of his own accord, and did a good job of it.

One day, he was out on a patrol, and a ghoul and a necromancer attacked him and the other guardsmen. After a long, grueling fight with a few other guards, they won.

Later, he came down with ghoul fever. He never stopped patrolling, however, and died out on patrol.

He has been presumed dead, leaving a widowed wife and his parents.

However, dead isn't exactly the right term here. His loyalty went beyond what is a assumed possible, and even as a ghoul, he still serves the kings, though much more discreetly.

It has been 2 years since then. He has become accustomed to the paranoia of living in the lower class city, and makes it as a human pretty well. His family stilt doesn't know he's "alive".

Also-
Removing meditation tea, and traveler's any tool, for a wand of inflict light, and remaining gold becoming 95 gp, 9 sp.

So is there a restart date or anything?


M Extrodinaraly Contrary Meatbag Fourm pyromancer 1

I don't believe so.
It seems this has dropped out again.
Ah well, can't blame lyn, she's very busy.


Male Drow (noble) 14 Ranger

Wow, has it been 3 years??


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

*hangs head in shame*

Yes, I suppose it has. I really regret that I wasn't able to find the time to run both this game and Avalon, but it just never quite worked. :(
