Since I think we're supposed to use this thread now...

I'm alive. My computer was virused, I nuked it with combofix and have access again.

I just have lots of catchup and company and the like going on at the moment. So, if I am slow updating my threads, that's why. I'll try to avoid taking so long as to need NPCed, though.

Hey all am subscribing and I have a question (knew I couldn't get by without one LOL)

I have two PC's that have gotten LVL up XP and I do not know what to do. Walking Dad thinks I first need my judge (Manzanita) to o.k. the XP before they can do their LVL up changes. What are the procdures for LVL ups during an adventure or after for that matter.

Thanks in advance,

HM

A judge must approve all awards, physical or immaterial, that will carry over to other adventures. That includes XP, so yes, you should get Manzanita to approve the awards.

If your rewards are pretty standard, I think it's okay to assume they'll be approved. To move things along, I recommend that your PCs submit their leveled up characters to the character judges now.

As for leveling up during an adventure, that's completely up to you. I usually say it happens during a significant period of rest. But it's your call.

[sblock=HM's Players, do not read]To answer your other question, I think we'll just have to wing it. Keep them in your adventure thread for a little bit longer (surely they'll need some R&R after the adventure, at least a day?), make the necessary rolls, and play it out.

An easy cop-out is to just hand wave the diseases away. If neither you nor your players are interested in playing it out, then I recommend that route.

I think you should play it out, but ultimately, it's up to you.[/sblock]

Thanks Rae, The judge I need to approve the xp and material rewards is Mantzanita right? Just the one person I haven't heard a peep out of in a long while.

Whoops, I somehow failed to notice this thread appearing. To summarize what I said last thread: what Rae said.

Thanks for the advice covaithe, I caught your post in the '09 thread and will probably wait to resolve everything after the adventure.

Hey folks, long time no see.

Good to see you folks still rolling. I might try to step back in, depends on how my time works out.
 

Bront

The man with the probe
Ok, a couple of quick questions for the current Judges (I'm going to presume I'm not an acting judge at the moment).

1) Vanitri picked up Leadership at Level 9, but his Henchman character (Who was created by a DM) never got posted, and I think I'd rather just avoid all the complications that go with that, and handwave the followers part as they'd never come up in game (He was going to have his own small Freefolk Caravan off stage). Anyone mind if I swap that feat out for something else? (I'm not even 100% sure he was approved for level 10, though I think he was pending the henchman).

2) I realize that a Level 10 character could be somewhat problematic to fit in with the newer folks around here, so:

A) How many people are waiting in the Tavern and of what level?

B) Could I NPC Vanitri in an adventure (He'd be unavailable for normal play, and sorta the guy hiring the PCs) and simply earn time XP (I'd even take half time XP)? Yes, I realize I could use credits to simulate that, but that doesn't require me to take him out of play.

Sorry. I have been a lame judge there. I haven't been around much period. I'll get over there & look at those awards.

Bront, If you're thinking of running an adventure, and Vanitri would help, then you should bring him along as an NPC. I know this has come up before, more than once. Time XP sounds find by me. We need DMs!

Okay, I have a question. I was updating Reis for level 2, and I wondered if LEW has a policy on character aging. If so, how does that work? Does age correspond with level, real life time, or something else? Or do we just choose when to make our characters older?
 

Bront

The man with the probe
Since time flow is very subjective, I think we handwaved the aging rules, particularly because they can be a way to circumvent the attribute point limits.

I'll see if I can't shore up my access at work. If I can, I'll try to get something together.

Bront: Welcome back! To address your points

1) Regarding Vanitri, I have emails saying he's been approved for L10. I can forward them to you, if you want.

I never saw a cohort, and Vanitri hasn't really been active. I think it's acceptable to swap out Leadership. Maybe make a proposal about it?

2) A) There are a fair few, very young L1's, and a decent, high level party, average L8. I don't know how active their players are, though. It's been a long time since they've gotten any attention.

B) I played Fimble as an NPC for a while. I didn't give him any time XP while he was being NPC'd, but you could probably convince me (as a judge) that NPC Vanitri deserves some time XP.

You should know, though, that NPC'ing Fimble and keeping him out of the spotlight caused me to fall out of love with him and eventually officially retire him as a PC. So, NPC Vanitri at your own risk!

Bront, I know that Rinaldo, Hogarth, Ashnar, Tenebrynn, Planus and Charlarn. I am very attached to Rinaldo. I won't reactivate Opale or Ridik, but I am willing to reactivate Rinaldo. Last time (in november), all was willing to continue with there character.

By the way, I never stop to run Rinaldo's shop.

If someone would run a high level game, i'd be much happier with that. :)

My connection issues seem to be hit or miss, they're better today, so yay!

What lvl Bront??? Jonah has some troubles down on the farm. maybe I will have him, higher some tough warriors to go and help get rid of all the monsters that seem to be moving onto his families land.


(First I would have to send a proposal to the judges but again I would need a party lvl)

Vanitri is 10th (Rogue 2, Ranger 3, Horizon Walker 5). Juliana is 7th. (5 Psi War, 2 War Mind)

Both pretty high but of course this being D&D anything is possible. Well let me dig in my DM bag of tricks but what we are missing are a few companions to adventure with you. You know anyone that could join you in a game.

I'll send my proposal Tue or Wed when I'm off, need to get to bed and still lot's to do here. So when it's approved and ready I'll post Jonah as a NPC in the RDI.

I'm ready to continue with Rinaldo di Senzio (Rogue6/Trader5) who also have a cohort (Cleric 9).

We would need to contact Erekose13 (Tenebrynn, Diviner5/Figther1/Eldritch Knight4) and Knight Otu (Paragon (Human) 3 / Wizard (Evoker) 6) who also might join. Rinaldo, Tenebrynn and Ashnar have a long story together, and Vanitri have been part of it too.

Well, 'm still here. It's just that my games seem to have ground to a halt at the moment. I think covaithe wanted to close up the one we're technically still in (yeah, I know, we're free to leave already)?
