    Thank you, Sepulchrave. I have recently read Story Hour and I am just blown away with how good it is. You have inspired me to strive to new heights as a DM. You have shown me how good a game can be. I'm going to be a better DM after reading this. Thank you and keep up the good work.

    Has anyone been good enough over the last year to request a Christmas update?

    Dear Santa,

    This year for Christmas I would like you to please use your powers of persuasion (or coersion) to convince (or force) Sepulchrave II to write an update (or four) for his Story Hour by the 25th. I promise I'll be really really good.

    Thank you,
    Felix


    I think if we flooded the Claus' inbox with that, he'd put some good elves on it.

    A haiku:

    I return! Update?
    No. Sadness. What? Second Page?
    I bump to page one.

    Not a bump, but rather an introduction... I'm a long-time lurker who has finally decided to unlurk. I consider this story hour to be perhaps the very best on this site, and whenever I come to this forum my foremost hope is that Sepulchrave will have updated it. This is a story hour that really forces readers to think to understand all its nuances. (Btw, if anyone cares, my favorite character is Mostin, Mr. "My infinity is bigger than yours!")

    Gah. I can't believe I missed seeing this update for a MONTH. *SOB*.

    Incidentally if the past is not immutable, but it seems normal creatures can remember the actual past what purpose does changing the past actually serve (apart from to really really screw with spells) ?

    Ok I'm happy the boards are faster but over my x-mas break I was catching up on this great story and was somewhere in the middle to end of Mesaliance part 1 and now that thread doesn't seem to be up on the boards. Anyone know where I can find it so I can finish it off and start working on this one?

    Oh, and Sep, awesome stuff.

    Tellerve

    edit: was able to find it by trudging through the yahoo boards. I will say this though, it was sad to click through the last few pages of this thread and not get any updates. I figured they'd be a few in the last pages, but only one and lots and lots of bumps Ah well, Happy New Year everyone.

    Hmmm, I was just thinking. What is the craft DC for Seph to write up one of these stories and do you think he's taking 20 to do so? It would explain why they take so long and are so good, but is writing a bad installment a sufficient negative consequence that he'd have to just take 10?

    Y'know, I'm not convinced that Sep isn't some sort of imp in the service of the Powers Below. He posts works of fantastic brilliance just often enough to keep everyone reading but leaves great gulfs of sad silence in-between, during which weak souls turn to drink, opium and general debauchery to fill the void left by the lack of Sep Story Hour greatness. Slowly, surely, the corruption spreads, while his diabolic masters cackle and grind their mandibles...

    But hey, that's just a theory - as well as a roundabout way of begging for an update. Now, if you'll excuse me, I must return to the debauchery which is my only way of escaping the absence of more Sep Story Hour greatness.

    I don't remember if I've commented on this before, but if I have it's probably six threads and 1000 posts back.

    I just got done rereading Jack Vance's Rhialto the Marvellous, and the influences of that story upon this tale are striking. In particular, the community of wizards in Wyre (and environs), the nature of magic (of course, Vancian magic inspired a lot of D&D's system, so that's not that surprising), the presence of a magician's code and a powerful, neutral enforcer (the Claviger), and to some extent the richness of language. I don't mean this in a negative/plagiaristic sort of way at all; in fact I think most writers are inspired by certain writers, and Sep is able to improve upon Vance in a number of ways IMHO. In particular, Sep surpasses Vance in his introduction of strong female characters into his narrative, and in the whole Eadric/spiritualist arc that started as an integral part of the story and developed into the mind-blowing philosophical debate that so many have commented on already.

    On the other hand, I think we're going to have to organize a kidnapping party to secure Sep and situate him in some hidden location to finish the story for us.

    Can't argue there. However, the use of sleet storm may have a detrimental effect on they're ability to attack the party. Which may not matter, depending on how weak they are to begin with.
    I have to disagree here.
    Mostin's packing spells capable of ripping the plane apart. I very much doubt a sleet storm will noticeably slow him. A reality maelstrom doesn't give a fig for line of sight or miss chances.

    Yeah and this time we promise to heed the word provisional and not complain if it's a bit later (although it might be a bit earlier maybe perhaps...)
