And so begins the OOC Conversation...

This is our tangent thread, where we come to discuss matters, Out-Of-Character. No need for blue words(literally). Also, when leveling characters, we'll use this thread to post the adjusted stats.

This thread is a great place to let the group know about absences, to discuss my inevitable combat malfunctions, or to share a life's experience, since we'll be traveling together for the next handful of years!

It's been my experience that the OOC thread gets a lot of the 'grind' work done, including treasure allocation, crafting, and the like.

Our timeline should give us some latitude for a July start.

Let the conversation begin :)

Lazare helps himself to the food cart, as well as a half-cup of kahve. He wolfs down several chunks of bread, sipping the brew to facilitate mastication. He turns to Tynan, and nods.

"Thank you for gathering our friends here." Lazare straightens the tuck of his shirt, and tightens his belt before turning to the group.

"I wouldn't have asked you here so early, but I need your assistance. The daughter of a friend of mine has gone missing this morning, and there will be no consoling her until the two are reunited. Meghan is barely thirteen, and quite responsible for her age, so it was quite a shock to learn that she abandoned her bed during the night." Lazare pauses, finishing off a croissant with a swish of butter.

Sense Motive, DC 20:

This is not a matter of courtesy, this search. To Lazare, this is personal. Genuine concern tinges his every word, though he is trying to distill it from his tone.

"I have already 'discussed' this with Sheriff Cubbin. He is... uninterested in diverting his responsibilities, especially over a..." Lazare stops himself from continuing.

"As it stands, I intend to find her, but I am only one man. I thought... I thought I could ask for your assistance... and your discretion." He looks to each of you for your answer.

And so begins the OOC Thread...

This is our tangent thread, where we come to discuss matters, Out-Of-Character. No need for blue words(literally).

This thread is a great place to let the group know about absences, to discuss my inevitable combat malfunctions, or to share a life's experience, since we'll be traveling together for the next couple of years!

Also, when leveling characters, we'll use this thread to post the adjusted stats. Karen and Scott, I'm chatting you up on this, but you're in great company, so when you see monkeys doing, do as said monkeys do, and you'll shine like they do.

It's been my experience that the OOC thread gets a lot of the 'grind' work done, including treasure allocation, crafting, and the like.

Speaking of which- Euan, would you be so kind as to set up the treasure sheet, when you have the time? Much, much appreciated.


At last!!

To the illustrious Paizo Community of PbP Players, I apologize, as this game is already fully crewed. I'm not a smart man, but I'm smart enough to have invited much smarter players to indulge me in my first GMing endeavor. Thank you for your understanding.

To my industrious friends, I am glad for your company!

Note to Self
Note to Players

Commitment:

As the GM I will post at least once a day (likely a lot more). I also expect players to post daily. If you are going to use abilities that interrupt the action (i.e. the feat Step Up), be prepared to post more often.

Real Life often calls, and we must of course heed it when it does. If you know you are going to be gone, just let me know and we'll work around it.

If your character is absent during combat and you're holding us up, I will Delay your action, or chose an appropriate action for you - whatever seems to make the most sense. I will always try to leave plenty of time for folks to catch up - I know we all have other responsibilities.

Character Stats:

A couple of you are new to the PbP formatting, so I encourage you to set up the basic, go-to stats for easy reference in the section on your Profile titled "Classes/Levels". Hit Points, Armor Class, Saves, Initiative, Perception Skill, and special abilities help me assess combat rounds more efficiently.

Diamond Lake. The name itself makes a light click of disgust when pronounced aloud. Moonday through Starday, and the town's people become the sludgy blood through the veins of the town. The evening of Starday quickens the pulse, while Sunday brings the pace to a dull throbbing. Residents of Diamond Lake are as like to nod quietly in passing as to avoid eye contact altogether, rushing to the next menial task. Words flow more easily behind closed doors amongst inner circles. In the shadow of Egorian, capital city of Cheliax, that's likely a wise thing to do.

It is mid-week, and the miners have already departed for the mines, when you are summoned to Lazare's. A non-descript man asks each of you to attend the parlor at your earliest convenience, but there is immediacy in his tone.

Lazare's is a little disquieting in its emptiness during morning hours. Dannath, Lazare's daughter and regular hostess, invites you to some nourishment set on a serving cart, all of it cold, save for the freshly brewed kahve. She excuses herself, adjusting her shawl and tending to the center hearth, which provides the circular interior a small degree of warmth.

"Please, help yourself, and patience. Father should be back shortly."

The day is Wealday, 17th day of Pharast, in the year 4749.

Bridgebourne begins to take on new life as night descends, and the younger children are shuffled off to their homes. The square enjoys the laughter of the performing troupe, as well as the community coming together to shirk the weariness of the day's labor.

Sun sets, moon rises, and the cold night air is met with several bonfires to keep the blood circulating. The troupe is certainly drawing quite the crowd. Folks wander into the tavern, then return to the festivities, bellies fuller from the wine on tap.

Bartholomew:

Your earlier communing with Trion indicated that Flax was present in Bridgebourne this day, and likely within the inner keep's walls.

As the party gathers once more in the town's western square, the inner keep doors open, and two militia make their way to the sides of the road, while Ayreth and an older woman wander slowly towards the square. Tarian follows close behind the two women. His laughter echoes hollowly, contrasted with the women's hearty mirth.

Party is up! Feel free to post your actions in character, and lob any questions to me through spoilers.

Alright, guys. We'll start a little conversation here, before I light up the Gameplay Thread. Discussion Thread is for out-of-character chit-chat, while the Gameplay Thread will be all story and action.

I look forward to seeing your arrivals :)


Hello All!! This is the reawakening of our Homebrew campaign, in the face of crazy schedules and less frequent Face-to-Face opportunities.

This is NOT a recruitment thread! Sorry, but we've already got a great group of players, and will be continuing a story that's been up and running since 2009.

Feel free to get used to the mechanics of posting here. Within our group, there is plenty of experience to go around!

More to come, I promise :)
