    Hi

    I just really, really had to say this.

    I LOVE NISHA!!!!
    I'm actually jealous that Clueless is with her all the time


    Florian was about to ask a question before Skalliska cut her off
    Florian's a she??


    Also, as someone not very well versed in Planescape (hmm no mists), where do you get all those 'loths from, stat-wise?
    Do the "Ebon" et al actually exist somewhere, or is this campaign specific? Sorry for the silly questions, I really am quite clueless... and there're so many wheels...

    Once more, just in case you forgot, NIIIISHAAAA!!!

    Skalliska asked to get her soul ripped apart?

    It's definitely ambiguous.

    she? Clueless said as he shot Nisha a baffled look whatdya mean she?

    Nisha paused a moment and coughed, Excuse me, him. Tongue slipped.

    um. Ok then. Clueless said and shrugged as Nisha brushed it off and pointed up towards Akins shop as they approached it on their path back to the Jammer.

    Nope - that's my little sister...
    She doesn't end up with Clueless.

    *GRIN* Florian's... an interesting person.
    The loths of the group.... Shemmie is canon, with a little extra power in this campaign. Ebon and Shylara are custom to the campaign. Helekinalith when you meet him later - is canon. But he's mentioned in one sentence in one obscure resource - so Shem did the stats in this campaign.

    Not all of these folks have full stats mind you.

    The Ebon is my own.
    Shylara is my own.
    The Cheshire Fiend is my own.

    Shemeska is canon.
    A'kin is canon.
    Helekanalaith is canon [He is given a single quote in either Faces of Evil' or 'Planes of Conflict': "A petitioner on fire? Or a burning star falling from the void? Both are equally beautiful to me." - Helekanalaith, Keeper of the Tower of the Arcanaloths". That's the entire extent of his mention in any TSR or WotC product, his personality and physical description are my own work, and I've also written up a bit of backstory for him and Larsdana Apt Neut (who herself is canonical from a single mention, otherwise all other details on her are my own).

    All of the Altraloths are canon.

    All of the Baernaloths who appear in my campaign are my own with a single exception, though I elaborate on him quite a bit. (Daru Ib Shamiq from 'Hellbound' who I give the additional title of 'Lie Weaver'. You won't meet him for quite a while yet). I'm not counting Apomps in that group however, and more Baern get mentioned eventually later on (more recently in the game) then actually make a physical appearance in the plot.

And good God do they fall inwards upon themselves... war is brewing and it'll be interesting to see who and what all steps out of the ashes.

    (And it's unlikely that there will be a SH update this next week unless I write something entirely on Friday night. If so you may get something but a little shorter than usual. I'll make up the next week for it)

    Who knows - maybe I'll slap something together for you guys instead. Shem's got some serious workload this week - I'll be lucky to see him online.

    Fyrehowl and Florian are both taken by Clueless, and we know it's not Clueless. Skalliska the Kobold is a different size category, a different order of vertebrate, and not a different gender; each of these reasons being enough to suppose a romantic interest is unlikely.

    So, it leaves three choices possible: Toras the big strong guy, and Tristol the kyoot wizard with a kyoot pet. (The third choice being, of course, another PC that has not been introduced yet. Hasn't Gerzel talked about the death of characters, and only the succubus was seen dead yet.)

    Thanks for the info., and for adding even more stuff to my must-get-now list..
    Are the Altraloths also from Faces of Evil / Planes of Conflict?


    evil is oppressively more powerful in my campaign world in many ways, but they fall inwards upon themselves enough to keep them roughly balanced with the upper planes in terms of overall power. And good God do they fall inwards upon themselves
    Now that's how it should be done! Though I imagine with all the work on the 'loths, their histories, schemes, general "evilness", and just keeping the game going, this gets increasingly... difficult... to juggle.. you evil puppetmaster, you.

    ^^ You forgot Florian


    *Chapeau* to the DM and players.
    and Nisha

    They're detailed in an article by Ed Bonny is the Dragon mag annual #2 (as I recall).

    That's what flowcharts are for
    It gets convoluted, but that's what killing off characters are for as well. *grin*

    Plus, I took a page out of J Michael Strazinsky's playbook here in having the overall plot charted out since day 1 of the campaign with a couple possible alternate plot directions to take into account player unpredictability (which they've nailed me with a few times).
