    Branding's Age of Worms, the 4th Generation - OOC

    Since the beginning of history, humanity has measured time in Ages. Ages of Glory, of Dreams, and even of Great Sorrows mark the human tally of years, giving sense of order to the events of past centuries.But one age has yet to occur - an age of darkness, of decay, and of writhing doom.

    Witty bards and wrathful preachers know it as the Age of Worms, weaving it into the peripheries of thir passion plays as a mythic era of destruction that could begin at any time. Astrologers, diviners, and the servants of Fate know more.

    The canniest among them fear that the Age of Worms has already begun.

    Status: Full

    Players:
    Raging Epistaxis – Whurhak Azten (LG male dwarf cleric)
    Thanee – Alexi (TN/NG female human paragon)
    Mista Collins – Owen (CN male human rogue)
    silentspace – Majakilar (male human paragon)
    Voadam – Gregor (LG male giant)

    Welcome to the resurrected Age of Worms campaign! Unfortunately, it is not a true resurrection, so we ended up losing a level in the meantime.

    I shall begin posting again within the next couple days, picking up in the game where we left off, as well as updating this post to include any campaign information that was lost in the Database Crash of '06.

    We will start the new IC thread pretty much where we left off before the Crash. Everyone was in the flooded chamber, some investigating the body in a sideroom and some breaking down the sodden wooden door.

    My question I pose to you is this: would anyone mind a change in storytelling format of the PbP?

    Part of my reason for not keeping up with updates as often as I would like is finding the time to orchestrate combats and make the needed rolls, as well as relating everything in the posts. I will continue to do so, if that is the consensus, but I would like to propose an alternative.

    Play with no dice rolling or statement of specific actions. Just post a description of the actions your character will like to take, and I will post the reactions. When posting, include descriptions of the abilities you know your character is capable of, based on your character sheet, but I will not keep track of hit point, spell slots, or the like. After a certain period of time, everyone will level up at once, and you will update your character sheets. But the game itself will stick to just the narrative.

    I am hoping this will speed play up a little bit, and we'll have less to worry about. What do you think?

    I'm fine with giving pretty much anything a try.

    I do prefer to have something to base decisions on, that's not entirely vague, though. And I really don't think it's a good idea to not track the more important party resources (i.e. spells) in some fashion at least.

    Bye
