Just a quick note to say I saw IC post. I’ll be traveling for another few hours, making handling rolls, etc. Difficult. Will post in IC thread when I’m home later today.

Due to moving house and the holidays, I'll be mostly offline the next 2-3 weeks. The DM is free to play my character as an NPC during my absence.

That's fine and it "works" well that Bro P was separated from the group. Though, I think we are down to 2 active players now. I want to finish up this segment and get you guys back to civilization. At which point we can recruit new players I guess.

I've waited a week for @tglassy to post his initiative. He tells me he'll be busy come Jan 1 (tax season).

Justin is unavailable (for the most part) in December.

That leaves @ArwensDaughter and @FitzTheRuke as the only active PCs in the game. So a few ways to go from here:

1) December holidays are usually rough on PbP games anyway. Take the month off. Regroup after New Year's when @JustinCase is back,
2) Skip the upcoming battle, wrap up the story arc narratively, and begin a long (several months) downtime sequence during which recruitment of new players can be done. Then start a new story from the beginning with a new, hopefully fully invested, group.
3) Both 1 & 2.

Thoughts?
 

I had looked forward to fighting this out, but it might be best if we just escape to the nearest town and open the game to new players, build a new party, and start from town.
 

I think a combo of 1 & 2 is the best course, even though I feel bad skipping the final combat. And that despite the fact I wasn’t sure Surina was going to survive it. But this is a super busy time for me, so pausing for a bit would be good.

I am back, although there could still be moments of absence (a matter of days, at most). Adding new players is fine by me.

I've been sick all week. So maybe next week I'll restart. I'm going to soft open the thread for recruiting.

So, anyone who wants to join, pitch a 4th level character to me. I'll be creating a new IC thread for book 2 of "A Bit of Trouble" and it will have the campaign intro, which isn't ready yet because of the aforementioned sickness.
 


I updated Surina to 4th level. While I was at it, I updated the spoiler blocks for the "new" forum, but I'm wondering it that makes it harder. Would you rather I take the whole thing out of spoiler blocks?

Also, I was looking at Surina's Personality Trait and Flaw and realized I haven't really been playing her that way. Are you ok with me changing them? For a flaw, I'm thinking something more along the lines of "Self-righteous; I have high moral standards and expect others--especially leaders of my faith and those touched by the divine--to live up to them."

Not sure what to do for the personality trait, unless "prays at the drop of a hat" works ;)

There's no need for spoiler blocks in the RG thread. There shouldn't be a lot of posts.

And if your character traits are different now that you've played the character, update the traits to reflect reality. Surina does pray often.

I am interested. It has been a while, but over the next two years I should be able to check at least 3-4 times a week.

I don't have a character concept to pitch. I figured I would take something that filled a capability gap in the current line up. Happy to take suggestions.

Meanwhile, I'll get back to reading the setting info.

At the moment we have a devotion Paladin, a drunken master monk, a samurai fighter and (I think) a dragon blood sorcerer. We are a little short on healing and support, but I’m a big advocate for playing what interests you over balance.

Hey guys,

I’d love to join too if you’ll have me. I’m also open to filling gaps.I’ll let dog head claim his character first, and will propose mine. Leaning towards Druid or cleric.
Cheers,

SG

I'll be updating the "story so far" to include the aftermath of the rescue mission the party eventually succeeded at.

Don't worry about filling gaps (unless that's you thing), I can make any party composition work. Play the character that will bring you back to update most frequently. :)
