I agree that it is a lot of fun that you have the danger of the scrolls which everyone concentrates on but all the other dangerous story lines of crusades and invasions etc. get glossed over because "all that talking".
We have a good balance of complicated v. easy story lines; combat v. talking solutions; group v. individual story arcs.
Remember you have only visited 9 districts in the City and there are 23 more that no one has ever visited and none of the 32 have been explored fully.
We have enough here for many more adventures of all types.
I find it funny and a little sad that the most likely combat will occur at the morning meeting during the reading of the scrolls.
I will offer up the tidbit that it seems Branwyn and her group have gotten known as "the adventurer ambassador" based on several of your guests asking questions during dinner conversations and Lord Branadarus becoming her fiance.
With Indigo and Shur being the up front fighters, Kenna and Jenn being the priests, Branwyn and her apprentices being mages that leaves the thieves to be.........
Random note - I was going over the events in my head tonight, and I realized that Ilero seems to be gaining a reputation as some sort of master thief, but really, he hasn't done anything in Dryads Lair to earn it. It's all smoke and rumors based on Regor's reputation rubbing off onto him. Not necessarily a bad thing, it may even prove useful. If he were a more duplicitous or scheming man, he might try to take more advantage of it. - TMO
So you might have noticed I did a bit of work on story threads today.
All the links for:
Have been entered and the color coding added to various chat logs.
The Haunted House thread has several new footnotes added and the roleplaying is continuing on there with John and the staff.
Lisa has her own RP threads going also for both Branwyn and Indigo.
When doing your Roleplay please expand on things, do not leave a one liner that does not give others a chance to expand. Remember the improv rule of "yes and" to help build stories up.
Also do not go back to old conversations to add new bits. With everyone scattered about the City and elsewhere we need to be sure that everyone is contributing on the correct dates. Do not jump a story ahead too far if others are participating. If others are not (or they are all NPCs) then feel free to build the stories up as much as you want.
I hope to have a couple of more stories ready to introduce over the next couple of sessions so that everyone understands you have unlimited adventure and story opportunities in this Era.
I am not planning on being in Friday, still have not updated Klooge come to think of it but I'd thought I would to contribute here. Any characters in town whom want to run into mine would be fun.
1-22 I am staying over at my parents house this evening so I won't be on... Just wanted to give everyone a heads up. Have fun and see you next week!
1-17 Here is a list of the possible adventures and puzzles we have been given to solve. We need to decide which we are going to do and which characters are going to do which ones. I am going to try to keep Branwyn as close to the City as possible to take care of things at home. Her character needs to respond to all of these request scrolls and Bob needs to plan for the ones we are going to do. Please add your character's name to the items you want your characters to do. I can have Branwyn see if some of these can be postponed (like the ring or wand until we have taken care of some of the ones that need our immediate attention). Everyone, of course, will be working on city type things when your characters are at home, but if we are going to start outside adventures, we should probably get going on those - Lisa
Michael - Bob can't get into yahoo right now. The game is up. Click connect manually and enter the IP address he sent you. After you click connect, manually close the pop-up connect window and you should get into the game. Lisa
Hey guys, this is Michael on Jan. 8. Usually bob is online about now and I'm wondering if i'm doing something wrong? I got the new version of klooge and sent bob an email but maybe he didn't get it. If any of you are seeing this in real time would you mind telling him I cannot connect. I don't want him to be mad at me. I'm going to be checking this and as far as I know he has my email so... thanks guys!
So Kurris from KloOge was very good to us. I have a new updated version of the program that I can use for the foreseeable future. On the KloOge page there is a link to the download for the new version for us.
You will need to download that prior to joining in the game for the next session.
This means we can continue to use KloOge until something like Tabletop Connect/Fantasy Grounds 3D is fully developed and we create the programming we need for it.
It was a great year and I look forward to another fun one with all of you. Happy New Year.
I have an update I would like people to run on their machines to help Klooge run better.
In your Klooge.werks folder (the main folder you installed Klooge in) there is a file called kLoOge.Werks.l4j
Open/edit that file with wordpad and change the two lines of -xmx and -xms
I recommend putting in -Xmx1024m and -Xms512m
Then just hit save (no need to change the file name)
When you open Klooge it will use these new values and we should have fewer drops.
