I'm making this thread for any kind of comments about the game going on right now. Basically if you want to talk about the game without clogging up the main thread, post it here. Feedback on how I'm running the game can also be here, things you want to change, how readable the maps and initiative charts are, etc...

I think you're doing a great job! The maps look great and I think this will be a lot of fun. I am trying to think of ways we can improve this thing as a whole... one of my ideas was everyone getting everyone's cell phone numbers, in case you can't be at a computer for a bit, maybe someone can call you if you are the last one up? things like that...

Also, I think we all realize this is a ton of work for you Mike, so anytime you need a couple days break somewhere in there, just let us know. I think what will help is that when we do take one of these breaks, that we give a clear time as to when we will be starting up so everyone can be on the same page, etc.

Everything is GREAT so far!

Yeah doing a good job, I think the first battle worked out a lot of the unusualness of doing a play by post. At least for me.

Not sure about the phone idea, since my phone is going to be MIA for a while. Email's a possiblity, but no guarantee that I'm going to check it anymore than I do now (once a month-ish).

Do we also get an additional action point after finishing this second encounter for the day without an extended rest?

I think I remember reading that, although I might be mistaken.

Yeah, that's correct on the action point thing. Anytime you guys do two encounters in a row you get another action point.

Thanks for the compliments guys. I think I've got the map tools thing figured out, so the maps should only get better from here. And on the matter of breaks, Gencon is coming up next week, and I know at least Torment and I are going to be there. I'm not sure what the wireless situation is at the hotel we're at, so posting may be a bit stagnant starting next Monday to Monday. Monday, Tuesday, and Sunday will definitely be out, but if I can gain interweb access, I'd be up for continuing the game through the week.

Thoughts?

I am sad to be missing gen con this year. Which hotel are you guys at?

Also, have you noticed the new posts in the character concepts thread?

Yeah i think that the play by post is working pretty well this time around. I remember back in high school it didnt work that well, and the game only lasted like 3 days.

On a side note, who all is living in appleton now? I'm moving back at the end of august, and I am currently working on building a game. Anyone interested? I have no idea when i will be ready to start, where it will be held, or what days of week. At the moment i have no concrete plans. First step is to find a job, second is to get back into school. Then i can worry about when to play D&D. Its sad that D&D is so far down on my priority list Sad

If you manage to get a game together, I call dibs on cleric. I really want to make a pacifist cleric build out of divine power.

The hotel we're at is the Crown Plaza, I believe. It's the one we always stay at, with free happy hour from 6-8 every night.

As for the extra person, yeah we can squeeze him in I think. I'll just have to end up throwing more monsters in the battles.

Sorry about the delay. It turns out there was no free internet at our hotel for Gencon. Update will be coming post haste.

woohoo, also, I am glad I hacked together the means to get post updates texted to my phone so I would know when there was a new post. It keeps me from frantically checking it all day.

So, unless I am reading Mike's last post wrong, there will be a list of possible skills to use posted (and some form of description of the situation?) before we have to start acting.

So, I think everyone seems to be getting ahead of themselves.

32 Automatic E-mails on Mon Sep 21, 2009 10:22 am

These automatic e-mails that are supposed to be sent when a topic gets replied to are not coming. I think this might explain why some people are taking forever to post. Do you think we should get a message tree going on facebook?

View user profile

33 Re: Rescue at Rivenroar OOC Thread on Mon Sep 21, 2009 10:35 am

I am getting 99% of the emails I think... and then i have a forwarding rule to send them to my phone. If anyone else wants to know how to do that, let me know. (p.s. most phones have an email address you can send text messages to and then the first however many characters go to the phone)


:EDIT: It could be that the emails stop coming after some time after you last post in a thread... idk.

::EDIT:: Doesn't look like it. Not sure what your issue could be. Being filtered as spam or duplicates?

If by chance it would matter if I posted my action before 6 tonight, I can't see the new map while at work (old version is still in the cache so I can see it). If someone gives me the new coordinates of Garrek and the 3 hobgoblins, I can post an action. Otherwise I will post later tonight.

Knowledge checks are essentially non-actions, so you can do it now.

Concerning the latest action attacking the drakes, my intent was actually to shift one square NE to set up a flank with Jael if he moved one square to the SE.
If I'm misremembering the rules and I can't "cut the corner" like that, I'd move one square N to try and set up the flank later.

View user profile

42 Re: Rescue at Rivenroar OOC Thread on Tue Oct 20, 2009 11:07 am

The drakes are a large creature (2x2)... so 1 north is where you would be shifting if shifting toward flanking.
