No Longer an Interest Check - 5E Rise of Tiamat + Corebooks PBP - OOC

LowKey left ENWorld entirely over an incident elsewhere on the boards.

If I had a problem with the NPC, I'd have posted in the OOC about it. I cannot recall in 30+ years of gaming ever being upset about how an NPC thinks or acts to such a degree I wanted to leave the game. In fact, the entire concept of leaving again because an NPC made my feelings hurt is the antithesis of what gaming is about. I just don't get it.

But as Skarsgard said, I didn't understand the point of aborting these scenes. And the fact that the scenes were aborted was an annoyance. I was expecting Ana to get into a good verbal fight with the Commandant, twice. Both times it just fizzled.

I too am sad to see you go. I hope things work out for the better in your life. If you do come back im totally still amped to play under you.

You seem like a swell guy.

I am now regretting my decision to drop this game. Having fewer distractions from my job hunt has not made me better at hunting for a job; it has just left me bored more often.

Okay, three four people is enough that we can restart the game, although I think I'd better scale back my more ambitious plans and start running pretty close to just the corebook stuff.

Since I've already failed at running the big, sprawling, epic version of this game, I will do the TL;DR version. We will largely skip Hoard of the Dragon Queen (even though I would really love to run it sometime) and return to my original plan of doing Rise of Tiamat, where the players start out already famous as heroes. Consequently, everyone who is in should either advance their character to level 6, if they were previously lower than that (the two dwarves, and the halfling if he shows up), or add one level to an existing level 6 character (everyone else). The resulting party of Level 6-7 characters will launch into the first couple scenarios of Rise of Tiamat, and we'll see if we can manage to actually at least play out one full chapter (technically, the level 6 characters never even started, thanks to my incompetence, and the level 1 party only got about 40-60% of the first HotDQ chapter done).

You could tag the others who haven't responded yet, because they may not be watching this thread. That way, you'll know exactly how many players are ready to continue/restart.

I'm fine with moving Grimnir to RoT at level 6, obviously. :)

I am as well, Need to re-equip him for that level, and iff possible I'd like to take one of the cantrips from the Forgotten Realms Player Guide, namely Booming Blade, if possible. It's not hugely powerful, but is part of the character concept.

I have updated Grimnir to level 6. Obviously I have not changed anything about his equipment, since you did not say anything about that. I hope we get some more stuff?

Back when Keth was going to be one of our PCs, I refused his player permission to break the "corebook only" rule, and after an extensive argument, I finally changed my mind and decided I'd allow the one spell he wanted, but he never responded to my last message. I feel as if, since my recalcitrance on the issue was some sort of dealbreaker issue for what was, in other respects, possibly the best character design anyone submitted for the game (no offense to anyone else, but some of the added details of the personality we discussed in PM were really cool insights), I sort of owe it to his memory to stick with the corebook-only hardline. Particularly since, if my public library ever reopens, I may have to return all my borrowed books. I might be able to do something about just the one adventure path book, or I could transition that campaign to something that only uses Monster Manual creatures and DMG magic items, but if a PC has a spell that I no longer have access to the text of, that could cause problems.
