Hello there. I’ve been reading through your gameplay discussion a little. Seems like you have quite an amazing group. How long has your group been together? I am interested in your group. I’m not making any promises and giving you false hope, but I’d hate to see such an amazing group go away!
1. What book are you on?3?
2. Would you be ok with 1 post per day Mon-Fri? I sometimes post updates on the weekend, but now always.
As the outgoing GM, I can tell you where they are at and what is left to do.
They are currently in the last battle in the last area (Ivory Sanctum) of Chapter 3. Once they finish the battle they need to search the area (they have been rushing thru it) then it is back to Drezen, some RP and then onto Chapter 4. I still have the map in Google Maps if you decide to take over.
I’d like to say I am excited to pick this group up. I will pick up book 3 and 4 tomorrow. It will probably be Monday until we start. It’ll give me a few days to read through material.
You have assembled an amazing group. I would like to commend you for that. I can only hope I give this group the hard work and experience that you have done up to this point. I sincerely hope you enjoy your retirement. I will be needing that map when you can get to it.
I will post in your gameplay discussion to introduce myself this week. I look forward to seeing all the nuances you bring to your characters.
GM Grumpel, here is a LINK to the map in Google Drive.
Non-linkified copy "https://drive.google.com/open?id=1qnl_4NHjND-6YX-CqMmy_hsh3omHxUMeQVsQMMCV ads"
It contains the map from the maps PDF, and the tokens that I have used for the PCs and the current crop of NPCs. You and all the players have edit access to it.
I sent you a PM with information on current initiative, HP, AC, as well as the information on the remaining foes. You'll have to look up Jeribeth and Xanther Vang (sp?) in book 3 for their spells / stats. The other mobs have their basic stats in the PM that I sent you, except the mages (forgot about them) spell lists are in book 3.
If you need any other info, PM me.
I have never done any play by post. I am currently GMing the Wrath of the Righteous AP in a group on Fantasy Grounds, so I have read all the books and am familiar with the story line.
I have read some of the posts on the thread Hyram included and it sounds like the group is really into the game. Our Fantasy Grounds group is about 20% into Book 4 (The Midnight Isles) - just a little ahead of the thread's activity.
If I had some help with details on how to be a good play by post GM, I would consider it.
Yeah....seems like a good bunch of players....I'll gladly take over....
About me: I'm an old hand at dming, having dmed back in the 80s and abit of the early 2000s....haven't played face to face since 2003.
Found these boards 6 years ago...played in many games....most of which have gone the way of the dodo.
Been working from home for the last year or so, so have the time to run games. I've picked up two other games that lost their GM's , would like to do the same for you.
