Tales from the Great Bazaar

Game Master Patrick Curtin

An attempt to build a canonical Planescape campaign from the ground up. Starting as young teens living in the streets of Sigil and ending....?

DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Lol. Ok I was a bit optimistic. I had a very exhausting weekend. I won't go into the details, but I just couldn't get the energy up to get this all set. I swear, tonight it will be my top priority


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Still working. Please bear with. This is a priority, but my materials are scattered and I need time to reorient myself. Thank you for your patience.


Female Asura-spawn Thiefling Inquisitor of Shelyn | HP 27/27 | AC 18, T 13 FF 14 | Fort +5 | Ref +4 | Wis +6 | Percept +8 | Darkvision | Init +4

Take your time. As I often tell my players, its a hobby. Its supposed to be fun.


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Lol. Ok. Hard dates aren't working, but I did make progress. I am working towards getting things back on track. I have my computer up and functioning, and that means I have access to my digital files. I won't say tonight, and jinx it, but certainly through to the weekend we should get the ball rolling.

Sorry about my lack of posting all; I was kind of using Pat's absence as an excuse due to being very busy myself ... then after he got back I got even more busy (also at various points distracted, moody, sick). I wasn't really keeping up with any of my pbp games, but this one probably slipped more than most and I was considering having to give it up in order to retain some sanity. However, I think I'm through the worst of things for the nonce and will endeavour to be a bit more active in the game!


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Hey, it's all good. I fully understand the issue with RL concerns, BELIEVE ME!

I am trying to get on a more even posting keel. Maybe not every day, but at least a few days a week. My life schedule is calming down and once I have my WiFi back I intend to get into much more detailed postings.

I have great plans for this game, so for everyone who has stuck with it through the rocky period, thank you.

How's RL treating you? Calming down?


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

I wish! Sigh, it’s hard staying abreast of everything. I feel bad that I haven’t been keeping up, but it seems like I turn around and a weeks gone by. I’m going to check on things now


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

I must apologize again. It has been difficult to concentrate and get things posted. My life has changed in several drastic ways in the past few months and I am finding it hard to maintain the equilibrium and find a new routine. That is my problem and one I am working on.

The upshot is this: I am still interested in going forward wit the game. However I understand people expect a certain posting level, and for the moment I’m having an issue keeping up. If the game gets frustrating for you, let me know. I will be happy to try to resolve any issues


Female Asura-spawn Thiefling Inquisitor of Shelyn | HP 27/27 | AC 18, T 13 FF 14 | Fort +5 | Ref +4 | Wis +6 | Percept +8 | Darkvision | Init +4

I am patient. I game a lot on the boards so its easy to check it from my campaign tab.

Also, I am emotionally attached to Congruence by now. Cant abandon my adopted mechanical brother.

(dont worry, I'm also attached to Tsun, but as a teenager I must rebel against the authority he represents ;) )


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Hi folks.

A bit of an apology here. I seemed to have blinked and the holiday season shot by. I am embarrassed again that I haven’t been keeping up. My only defense I can muster is that my routine is completely changed, and it is very difficult to find good time to curate my games. I used to have hours to contemplate my games, and now that time just isn’t there anymore.

I love all my games, and I am committed to trying to keep them alive. However I understand it’s frustrating as a player when the GM disappears for weeks without notice. There’s no excuse for that.

This weekend I am traveling, but I hope to at least do a bare-bones update.


Female Asura-spawn Thiefling Inquisitor of Shelyn | HP 27/27 | AC 18, T 13 FF 14 | Fort +5 | Ref +4 | Wis +6 | Percept +8 | Darkvision | Init +4

I hope you are doing well Patrick.

It looks like it has been over two months since our last update. May I make a suggestion? Having a sort of 'soft-reboot' may help the game rather than a regular update, the next time you have availability to post. Just hand-wave the current action and give the characters a fresh start with a new development. I think it would help us get a rhythm back in place.

This can be fine with me, as well. Whatever works best. Also, if it helps to bring threads together so that it's not actually several different groups, I'm completely flexible. It's all good.


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

That’s not a bad idea. I think one issue I’m having is the separation of the different groups.

I should be updating this weekend


female, catfolk rogue (U0 1/sorceress 1 | HP 19/19 | AC 13 (17), FF 10 )14), TAC 13 | CMB +0, CMD 13 | F +3, R +5, W +1 | Low-light vision; Per +3 (+4) | Special Attacks: Sneak Attack 1d6 | Spells: 1st 4/4

I'm fine with that as well. I kinda got left out on my own in pretty short order, and you did well trying to keep me involved in something until I could join with another group, but a time advancement so we can all join together (or at least reduce the number of separate groups) is a good thing I think


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Hi folks.

Well, I want to apologize. It's no secret I have been struggling. I still want to continue. I am going to try this week to get back into the swing of things. Honestly. I know if I don't get back somehow it will die. So please post a "present" if you are still here. I will get this rolling this week, fates willing.

I am considering a soft reboot as well. If you are still about, I think I will have you all start together so as to calm down the confusion


female, catfolk rogue (U0 1/sorceress 1 | HP 19/19 | AC 13 (17), FF 10 )14), TAC 13 | CMB +0, CMD 13 | F +3, R +5, W +1 | Low-light vision; Per +3 (+4) | Special Attacks: Sneak Attack 1d6 | Spells: 1st 4/4

Still here meow!


Agender Exiled Modron Paladin 1 (Chosen One)

We are still present and prepared for soft reboot.


Female Asura-spawn Thiefling Inquisitor of Shelyn | HP 27/27 | AC 18, T 13 FF 14 | Fort +5 | Ref +4 | Wis +6 | Percept +8 | Darkvision | Init +4

Forum woes ate my dots. I'm still here.


female, catfolk rogue (U0 1/sorceress 1 | HP 19/19 | AC 13 (17), FF 10 )14), TAC 13 | CMB +0, CMD 13 | F +3, R +5, W +1 | Low-light vision; Per +3 (+4) | Special Attacks: Sneak Attack 1d6 | Spells: 1st 4/4

Still here and now leveled to two. Took my first level of sorcerer this time.


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

OK! We’ll see how things go


female, catfolk rogue (U0 1/sorceress 1 | HP 19/19 | AC 13 (17), FF 10 )14), TAC 13 | CMB +0, CMD 13 | F +3, R +5, W +1 | Low-light vision; Per +3 (+4) | Special Attacks: Sneak Attack 1d6 | Spells: 1st 4/4

So ya'll know I will be gone from Tuesday next week through most of the following Sunday to Origins and posting time will be limited during that time.


Female Asura-spawn Thiefling Inquisitor of Shelyn | HP 27/27 | AC 18, T 13 FF 14 | Fort +5 | Ref +4 | Wis +6 | Percept +8 | Darkvision | Init +4

Oh, Origins! Have super duper much fun!


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Enjoy! This game will tKe a while to reboot anyhow.

Yay! Congruence is still here. Or, wait, gotta get back into character...

"Congruence is still present and very eager to continue."

(Gotta practice only using 9 word statements once again.) :)

I will work on leveling them up and posting into Gameplay in the next day or two.

Also, it's probably not very pertinent to all of you familiar with Planescape, but seeing plenty of gamers out there who started recently and have only heard about Planescape, I started an "Intro to Planescape" blog called Rule of 3 where I'm (slowly) discussing the various pieces of Planescape and how to update them to 5e. Feel free to check it out if you are interested, and don't hesitate to call me out when I get stuff wrong. :) I'm still re-reading all the old books I haven't opened in years.

Also, Patrick, this is showing up in my "Previous Campaigns." Was I possibly inactivated? Thanks!


Female Asura-spawn Thiefling Inquisitor of Shelyn | HP 27/27 | AC 18, T 13 FF 14 | Fort +5 | Ref +4 | Wis +6 | Percept +8 | Darkvision | Init +4

Friend Congruence! Its good to have you with us!

It might be you hadn’t posted with your character. Try posting in game. Just a sentence and we’ll see how it goes v


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Hi folks.

Sorry I’ve been quiet, but I’ve been trying to get my thoughts together. I have an idea for a quick(ish) kind of module that will entail a portal-jumping scavenger hunt. Stay tuned.


Female Asura-spawn Thiefling Inquisitor of Shelyn | HP 27/27 | AC 18, T 13 FF 14 | Fort +5 | Ref +4 | Wis +6 | Percept +8 | Darkvision | Init +4

Oooooooooooooooooooooooh scavenger hunt!


Agender Exiled Modron Paladin 1 (Chosen One)

Sounds fun!

I like it meow!

I will be out of town at Gencon this Wednesday through Sunday so my posting will be very sparse/non-existent until possibly next Monday. Please bot me as needed.


Agender Exiled Modron Paladin 1 (Chosen One)

Myriana, I'm jealous! I've been hoping to get back to GenCon one of these years, but unfortunately it's still in the cards. Have fun!!

Patrick, have you tried possibly private messaging some of the other players to see if they are still interested? Maybe they haven't noticed the restart. Looks like Sara might have some interest from past messages but hasn't appeared in Gameplay yet. *shrug*


Female Asura-spawn Thiefling Inquisitor of Shelyn | HP 27/27 | AC 18, T 13 FF 14 | Fort +5 | Ref +4 | Wis +6 | Percept +8 | Darkvision | Init +4

Gameplay has happened? The forum hasnt shown me that the threat has updated at all. It just keeps saying new messages in discussion... but not gameplay.
Bad forum!


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

I’ll try PMing them, I’d like to get a few back


Hello all.


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Yay!! New blood!


Male Scro Swashbuckler 8

Looks like meats back on the menu boys!


Whenever I figure this all out you will know flavor the meat is. Anything that might help balance out the party, or does it make a difference?


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

2nd level. We can use pretty much anything at this point


Male Human

Ok, coming in here as well, new to the website, but gamed with Pat for a ton of years. Will be making up a character, but will need to glance over and see what needs to be made.


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Here's a reprint from the recruit page:

Two years ago monkey wrote:

Well, it being Sigil, you can play pretty much any race you want. With the power levels, there might have to be some adjustments. Perhaps taking a decrease in power until a level is earned and then having the sequestered power 'mature'.

I usually do a 25-point buy. Double Max HP on first level. I'm not sure if I'm going to go with Max HPs after that, but for sure double max first level.

I'll have to go over the trait rules, but I see nothing too wrong with that.


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

so roll for 2nd level


Female Dusk Elf Magus (Mindblade) 2

BOO!


25 point buy, double max hp 1st level, roll up second. Any race, class, or other restrictions?

It’s Sigil. Anything goes!


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

I have set up a Discord chat room for this game

Discord Link

The specific chat is Great Bazaar, if you need to ask me anything


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

I’m headed out on vacation this coming weekend. I might update, then again, I might not. I just want to give you a heads up that updates (especially if they require combat) will be spotty.

Those of you making new characters, I will be available on Discord


Agender Exiled Modron Paladin 1 (Chosen One)

Still here, just long couple days. Will update character and post tomorrow. :)
