Let the OOC Discussion of RttToEE begin! And welcome, to my players from the d20 World of Greyhawk board. I hope that this new environment invigorates the campaign!


Paizo shows Norian missing from initiative but d20 has him just after trolls. What is his initiative in the order?


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

Apologies, the Initiative Order I have on the board is just a 'short' version of the Combat Table and I missed adding you when I created it. You are right after the trolls, it is actually Norian's turn, who acts just before Svaerd.


Init: +3 | AC: 17 / FF AC: 13 / Touch AC: 17 [+4 vs giants] | Fort: +5 / Ref: +6 / Will:+5 [+2 to saves vs illusions] | Speed: 20' | Spell Save DC: 0 Level - 14; 1st Level - 15; 2nd Level - 16; 3rd Level - 17; 4th Level - 18 [DC +3 for Illusion spells]

I'll just copy & paste what I posted in the adventure thread for the DM's convenience...

Though Phaligast cannot hope to keep up with the longshanks, he is invisible and does not fear behind left behind. He'll catch up to the others eventually.

OOC: I am willing to continue, however, using this board is still very awkward for me. I still do not know how to format and various other things that may slow me down a bit. I'm still excited about having a mid-level spellcaster to play with, though, since I have played very few in my 35+ years of gaming. But I would just offer the caveat that while I definitely want to remain in the party, I do not want to slow the group down. If things become too annoying, I reserve the right to honorably bow out. Hopefully it won't come to that!


Checking in


Yeah, I think I am going to have to give the paizo board some newfound effort. Perhaps I can start posting properly on Norian somehow, but at least for now I am able to post again.

Also, I have a new phone that is actually smart in more than name, so duty should no longer prevent me posting. Barring another trip out to the desert or something...


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

Welcome back, Norian!

All you need to do is create an 'Alias' and name it Norian (you might need to include last name, or last initial, or separated by an underline or something). Also, an avatar pic would be a big help as I sometimes fail to see a short post without the avatar pic to pick out the post on a crowded page.

If you need help, let me know and I can walk you through the process.


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

So at the moment I've got Svaerd, Phaligast, Norian and our new player David (who is creating a druid). Thinking I can safely recruit two or even three more players for this one. I'll shoot for two right now and give d20 folks that haven't checked in another chance over next couple weeks. If nobody answers the call (I'm really hoping to hear from Sol!), then I'll recruit three, if I get the interest.


Init: +4 | AC: 22 / FF AC: 22 / Touch AC: 10 [25% ignore crit/sneak attack] | Fort: +9 / Ref: +2 / Will: +12 | Speed: 20' | Favored Attack: Magical +1 Heavy Mace +9\+4 melee / 1d8+2 bludgeoning damage / x2 crit | Spell Save DC: 0 Level - 14; 1st Level - 15; 2nd Level - 16; 3rd Level - 17; 4th Level - 18; 5th Level - 19

Sol would like to continue!


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

Woot!! Hiya Sol! :)


FM Human? Druid 5/ Master of Many Forms 3

I would like to introduce Loren Althorn, Druid Master of Many forms.
Still have to finish her bio and her common forms


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

Thanks, Loren! I'll be looking over the character sheet soon. Hopefully we can get a couple more players involved and get this game going again by next weekend!


Max HP: 72 | AC: 23; T: 17; FF: 17 | Init +10 | Fort: +9; Ref: +10; Will: +5 |

Greetings all! happy to shoot some undead in the face!


(Waves) Hi all. Stedvan the Quick, swordsman and ...scout, supreme, reporting for duty.


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

Welcome to both of you as well! Feel free to post in the gameplay thread, if you'd like. How you came to Hommlet (and you too, Loren) is totally up to you all. Figure you received word from Rufus and Burne's agents in one way or another. From something as simple as a posting in a tavern to said agent being a friend or mentor (or relative) or whatever you'd like! I'd only ask you not claim personal relationship with either Rufus or Burne, though.


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

Was waiting for a few more player posts to flesh out the intro, but I'll dive us into the action this weekend anyway.


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

Hope you all are forgiving of my 'wall of text' posts. They are there mainly to serve as a reference not only for the new players, but also to help jog the memories of my old players (and myself!), and also to serve as a future way to keep track of what's occurred simply by referencing the first page of this adventure thread - which I'm sure will be quite long before all is said and done. :)


Max HP: 72 | AC: 23; T: 17; FF: 17 | Init +10 | Fort: +9; Ref: +10; Will: +5 |

Sorry about the delay in posting all. I forgot to mark this as one of my games, so I wasn't seeing any updates for it. I have resolved that issue now.


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

Was hoping for a bit more input from players, but I will have you all proceed along the downsloping passage. Will try to get a post up tonight.

I will be headed on vacation after July 3rd and won't be back until July 10, so I won't be on the board again until that time.


hows everyone doing


Max HP: 72 | AC: 23; T: 17; FF: 17 | Init +10 | Fort: +9; Ref: +10; Will: +5 |

Still here, waiting for stuff to resume (I had assumed that posting was slow cause our GM was on vay-cay).


FM Human? Druid 5/ Master of Many Forms 3

true just checking in


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

Correct, I'm back from vacation and will be posting this week! Tomorrow, if possible. :)


West I am sorry, but I have decided to take a break from tabletop RP. While I would like to keep playing in this campaign I am just not putting enough effort into my tabletop RP right now to justify a spot. I am taking a break from it, and when I can commit myself to it enough to not be wasting a group's time I will come back to it.

I just want to say I have enjoyed being in your different campaigns and I apologize for not holding up my end of participating. Hopefully I was able to contribute to the tale in my time playing.


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

Sorry to hear that Norian, but I do understand. I truly did enjoy your RPing, and hope to see you again sometime. Take care my friend!

As to everyone else, it looks like there are five players remaining (plus Loren's celestial ape), which is more than enough to keep going, if you are all as interested in doing so as I am. I will endeavor to post more often when my players post actions (whether individually or as a group), so let's see if we can pick up the pace a bit in this epic adventure! :)


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

Apologies folks, RL is hitting me kinda hard right now. Rest assured this game will continue ever onward, but the pace is going to be a bit slow for the next couple months or so. Please bear with me, and thanks!


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

Sorry folks, I was unable to put up my own post in response to your actions and I'm flying out today. I'll return next Monday and this thread will be one of the first few that I update. Thanks for your patience!


||Skills:Bluff+16/Disable Device+12/Hide:+23/Move Silent:+18/Open Lock:+15/Search:+12/Spot:+12/Tumble:+11/UMD:+11

Hi all! Do you have room for a sneaky little gnome in the group?

HP: 1d6 ⇒ 2
HP: 1d6 ⇒ 3
HP: 1d6 ⇒ 1
HP: 1d6 ⇒ 5
HP: 1d4 ⇒ 3
HP: 1d4 ⇒ 2


||Skills:Bluff+16/Disable Device+12/Hide:+23/Move Silent:+18/Open Lock:+15/Search:+12/Spot:+12/Tumble:+11/UMD:+11

Actually 1d22 gives you any number from 1 to 22 so you can roll a 1....

It crashed when I tried to submit.

Then when I re-wrote the post I used notepad and did one {dice=}1d22 +{/dice} line. Copy and paste four times, then filled in the text after the equal and the modifier for each line without noticing the obvious mistake.... Like I said, copy and paste a stupid mistake four times just means that you get four stupid mistakes!


Max HP: 72 | AC: 23; T: 17; FF: 17 | Init +10 | Fort: +9; Ref: +10; Will: +5 |

Posting this to all my games, so sorry if you see it multiple times:

This week both my office and I personally are going to be moving. It's been crazy busy and I am not going to be able to post until Monday at the earliest. Please bot me if I am in your game, and if you are in a game I am running, I will get a post up as soon as possible.

Thank you for your patience.


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

Sorry for delay folks, life has been a bit bumpy of late and I'm hoping to get back into a regular posting pattern again soon. Might not be until after the first of the year, but I'll be posting during the holiday season for sure - just a bit irregularly. Thanks for your patience!


Max HP: 72 | AC: 23; T: 17; FF: 17 | Init +10 | Fort: +9; Ref: +10; Will: +5 |

Back now btw.


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

Good to see you, Vorlan! As for myself, things have gone from bumpy to... much more so. I'll not be giving up on posting entirely, I've been GMing pbp for 20+ years and won't give up this easily. But I don't think I've got it in me to moderate until after the holidays. Sorry for the brief hiatus folks, but keep checking in and we'll pick things up again in January.


||Skills:Bluff+16/Disable Device+12/Hide:+23/Move Silent:+18/Open Lock:+15/Search:+12/Spot:+12/Tumble:+11/UMD:+11

No problem! See you all in 2019.


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

We're back on, folks! Apologies in advance if my posting schedule slacks off from time to time, I'm going through a bit of a rough patch in RL that could either increase the time I'm posting or have the opposite effect due to general apathy and feeling sorry for myself. I'm personally hoping for the former! :)


Max HP: 72 | AC: 23; T: 17; FF: 17 | Init +10 | Fort: +9; Ref: +10; Will: +5 |

I am posting this to all of my games, so apologies if you see this multiple times:

Unfortunately, I have some bad news.

A combination of work-related stuff has lead to me having to take some time off from the forums. I am, in all honesty, going to need to be gone for several months, as I am going to be travelling for extended periods of time (weeks or more) and I'll likely not have good access to the internet.

As I am not someone who would want to have you all sit and wait for me here, I am going to be withdrawing/closing all of my open forum games.

I want to thank everyone who I have had the pleasure to game with over the last couple of years here, as I have immensely enjoyed my time on the forums, and hopefully, once my work stabilizes, I will be able to rejoin the community.

Thank you again for your time and energy, and I am sorry that I won't be able to keep things moving forward in any of the games that I am running.


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

Take care Vorlan, I'll try and write you out soon.

I'm inclined to keep the party as-is at the moment. You seem plenty powerful even without your orc archer. That is, if you survive the next few minutes...


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

Sol, thanks for clarifying your spells for the day! I think I've got it correct now on the Tapatalk board character sheet (which I still use, for now). Let me know if you see any problems, including on those cast today (struck through with a line).

Sol's Character Sheet


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

I'm sorry for the delay everyone, there's some light at the end of the proverbial tunnel though and I hope to get back to some semblance of regular posting in the next few weeks.

I'm not one that normally unloads my woes on people, but I'll go ahead and do it anyway. Basically my life is in chaos right now. My wife and I have separated after 25 years of marriage, I've been looking to get out of the hotel I'm in and into an apartment (just got one yesterday, so that's one obstacle down) and work is ugly with tax season in the early stages of making life miserable for me during the day. Because of the housing situation, I've taken up a second job driving for Uber, which is great because it's on my own schedule, but alas it's usually busiest during the hours when I like to post.

That said, I think I've about nailed down a schedule that will allow me time on the boards in the late afternoon, early evening hours now that I'm not feverishly looking for my own place. I'll probably start doing my driving after the rush hour crowd dies down a bit and go until late, which actually seems to be a fairly busy time period in my area.

Anyway, just wanted to let you all know where my head has been of late, and to reassure you that I'm still around and fully intend to get back into my usual posting schedule of a couple times a week when possible, especially when my players post quickly. It may take me a bit of time to get there, probably until April 15th, as a matter of fact! But over the next couple months I hope to start posting at least once a week or every 10 days at the very worst. That'd be a good start, considering my pace over the past few months...


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

OK folks, I'm settled into my new place and I'm feeling pretty good again - all things considered. I'm planning to start my new schedule of posting during the late afternoon in the coming week. I do hope you are all still around and watching this adventure thread. I'm very eager to start this adventure up again, along with the other three I'm running on the Paizo board.

Thanks again to all of you for your patience with an absent GM. Let's get this game rolling again! :)


||Skills:Bluff+16/Disable Device+12/Hide:+23/Move Silent:+18/Open Lock:+15/Search:+12/Spot:+12/Tumble:+11/UMD:+11

Yay! I'm ready to continue.


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

I should have anticipated this week being busy for me as I finished furnishing my apartment as bits and pieces arrived from Amazon - I'm tired of assembling furniture! But fortunately I'm finishing that process up today. Unfortunately, this week has gotten away from me. Let's shoot for a fresh start next week. I'm going to do my very best to hold myself to this promise, folks!


FM Human? Druid 5/ Master of Many Forms 3

I understand


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

Sorry folks, I'm still slow going. Been hard to focus with all the personal stuff mixed with tax season and end of first quarter at work. Going to try and post this week to get us moving again and hope to get myself going on that schedule I promised. I've not forgotten this adventure though.


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

It does appear that I'm taking a bit longer than I'd thought to get used to my new situation. I guess my posting is going to be more sporadic than I'd thought for awhile longer, but I'm game with continuing this adventure if you are all OK with the slower pace. I'm going to work hard at posting more often, especially when I see my players posting quickly. I hate to leave you good folks hanging... :)


||Skills:Bluff+16/Disable Device+12/Hide:+23/Move Silent:+18/Open Lock:+15/Search:+12/Spot:+12/Tumble:+11/UMD:+11

Glad to have this game continue at any speed!


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

I'm going to write out Svaerd, as the player has pretty much disappeared from all of my other adventures as well as this one. I've had good luck recruiting for my other two adventures on this board, so very soon I'll do that and bring in one or two others at the same time. Just need to find a good place to do it.


||Skills:Bluff+16/Disable Device+12/Hide:+23/Move Silent:+18/Open Lock:+15/Search:+12/Spot:+12/Tumble:+11/UMD:+11

Sounds good!


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

Nice!! Lots of recent posts will get us moving again! I'll work on getting something up by the end of the weekend hopefully, though if I don't get to it today sometime it won't be until Sunday night.

I'm also going to bring in a new player whose adventure came to an abrupt end due to other folks dropping out of the game, making it too difficult to continue with it. I might have to get kinda creative on how to bring the player in, but will probably find a way to do so very soon.


Male Human (Aren't we all? Folks need to remember that!) Epic Level GM (35+ years!)

I've been a bit busy of late, but will find time to post while I'm on my vacation here in the coming week!
