Hey nemm, will this new Aquerra: Promised Land campaign become a story hour too? I'd love to hear more about it.

C.I.D.

Well, *I* won't be writing it - but maybe someone else will . . .

I guess it remains to be seen. . .

I have not been in the head to write up more installments - been busy with music stuff and life stuff - but we got the long weekend - and a game tomorrow - so the inspiration may come to hammer out an installment.

Hey Nemm !

I heard most of the first song before my son cut off the speakers. I'll give it a more thorough listen tomorrow.

My first impression is of Ed McCain on Wintertime Blues with Warren Haynes. Don't know if you know these guys...

However, I would posit that you lack a good harmonica player. I'm available, but I live in Paris ;)

Oh hey Nemm, could I get those stats for the other adventuring party mentioned earlier? They're one of the most interesting parties I've ever seen, and I plan on using their stats by the end of this week, if not the next.

bad news

Unfortunately, my computer has gone Ka-put!

That means no updates for a good long time - possibly not for months - as replacing my computer is second to getting a new guitar - but I may still be able to get my computer working eventually - but I don't have my hopes up.

That's bad news indeed :(

I hope you're able to get back into it eventually nemm, you know how much people love your story.

Settling in for a long, long wait,
C.I.D.

good news

I got my machine up and running (by doing a factory restore :eek: ), but it is still acting weird - but regardless I should be re-starting on the next installment tonight - so figure Tuesday or Wednesday or so for the next posting.



But uh, don't quote me on that.:D

Size Matters?

SO, I am on page TEN of my next installment - and I thought - Let me ask my loyal readers. . .

Do you prefer shorter or longer installments? Not that this is going to change how I do it - I usually follow the rhythm of the action and discovery - making it as short or as long as I feel works for the installment in terms of the whole story - but I was curious if anyone finds these too long.

Of course, I think my attention to detail in dialogue (sometimes allowing PCs to recapitulate facets of the plot in order to remind the reader what is happening) adds a great deal to the actual length - so it is not so much word count as format.

Anyway, sound off. . .


Oh, and I am not sure if I ever brought this thread - but it has a nice overview of campaign plot elements assembled by Beorth's player - it is not up to date with the current sessions - but I believe encompasses everything up to when the party is about to go see the druids.

Long installments...

Nemm, if it's good stuff ( as yours...) it can be as long as a dragon's tail...:p

I don't know if you folks agree with me, but, Richard the Red is simply the best NPC in the story...

Do as you feel it, Nemm. In my Terres Anciennes SH I write rather long installments but my new Fadins Suns SH (in French and in English) has rather shorter installments.

Yours are bound to be as pleasing as ever however long they are. And RtR would be an added bonus...

I'll say I like the longer updates. Much more meatier. And it's good to see you got your comp problems resolved, Nemm.
 

I feel your pain

Nemm,

Post long or short, we'll all read it!

Also, I feel your pain on the computer problems. My hard drive crashed a few weeks ago (!) and I've only just now gotten enough functionality back to get online.

My e-mail still doesn't work (cause I screwed it up trying to restore my old e-mails), so if you've e-mailed me about your trip to Austin in the last few weeks I didn't get it. If you are still planning to come post on the board and I'll e-mail you my phone number so we can meet up like we discussed.

If it is not on thing is it is another. . .

Despite how close I am to finishing my next installment, I have been sick as a dog for the last three days and can barely form a cohesive sentence, let alone work on the story hour :(

I think I may have to cancel my game tomorrow. :(
