No worries. I'm sure we'll settle into a rhythm. And if what I think needs to happen happens, we'll soon be breaking up into smaller groups. Just too much to do and too little time to do it before the wire comes back

What about adding something thing like "In Progress" on a post? Meaning, You make an initial post on the IC thread that just says "In Progress." Then, you take your turn, submitting to check dice rolls as necessary. When finished overall, just make a note at the bottom that says "End" or something similar?

I like the idea of adding an "in progress" at the end of the post when you're still working on it. As long as we update to either remove the "in progress" or to say "done" to let anyone else know, it should work great.

Cheers for the heads up Michael


In Progress idea is cool.

Kathleen - love your Star Wars references in above posts. Totally get that. Just don't kiss your brother, okay?

Key of Conscience
Also going to use my Secret of the Lucky Break to keep hold of that pool dice for another time!

Roll is perfect, explanation of why it's a 2 target is great.

However do not waste your Secret of the Lucky Brek on a roll where you only spend one pool dice, in a situation that isn't do or die! Save that for another time!

Magic's tricky, see.

Thanks. Will be interesting to see how she responds fully in control of her noble self.

Right-o! Will do

On another topic - how does everyone feel if Snargle can somehow sense Natasha's Stormblood power? Relevant/non-relevant? Might add a bit of 'spice' if he's suspicious of her?

I'm fine to have other players make decisions that shape other character's personalities as well as decisions. I can roll with it, helps to keep the different characters connected. My focus has basically been on Naomi because of my galactic pity party, but that will change.

With Snargles deep empathy for others, it would fall in line with his character to be able to send emotional changes... And that would be a HUGE emotional change. The extent of his empathy is something we could play with, to the point where his emotional connection is related to the essence itself, and able to sense changes in the very essence of a person.

Hows that for engineering/nerding it up?

Kale's hidden herself and hopefully done as much to allay suspicion as she can when those guards come in.

I'm pausing my own narration there to allow Snargle to get in some work on his disguise and see if anyone has some other curves/ideas they want to throw in before those guards bust in.

I'm trying to strike the balance of moving the story along, being an active participant and also leaving open space for someone else to pickup, so let me know if i'm managing that well, or not so well.

Edit - I'm leaving my hiding open to interpretation and other character interaction. If not much else goes wrong I'll assume that I can sneak away with that roll, if something else comes up maybe I'll need to roll to get out as well.

Phew! Snargle looks the part; there's a relief.

I'll wait for anyone else who wants to add anything before 'greeting' the incoming guards!

I think they're about to burst in on us. If there are any last things to be done, now's the time to do it, but we're pretty much out of time.

I've set up the conditions as best I could to let Snargle pull off his ruse, and to let Kale sneak by. Hope it works!

A sort of farewell....
I'm sorry gang, but I think I may need to drop out of this. I geekmailed Sam and let him know as well.

This PBF is not quite what I expected...I guess I expected more of an old school "running through a pre-made module" sort of experience, where the setting is clearly defined and your character has to work with what he or she is given. This format is much more open, with little world creation done ahead of time and the onus of that falling upon the players.

I can certainly appreciate this type of experience, it's just that I don't have the time to devote to that type of game play. If I could post at work, then I would have the luxury of time, but spending 10+ hours each day at a client site (I'm a software consultant), I just can't and ultimately I would slow down the whole experience for you all. Such is life.

Thank you all for the opportunity to experience this - however brief it was for me. I will be lurking over the next few months as I'm interested to see how the plot unfolds with such a talented, creative group.

Michael (formerly Naomi) :-)

I will reiterate what I said to Michael in my geekmail - I hope he sticks with us to read the journey and he is welcome to comment here as he sees fit during the game. Feel free to post ideas and discuss things if you want, Michael.

And I look forward to seeing you in other threads etc on RPGGeek.

Take care, mate.

No problem. Good luck in future endeavors!

How do we want to handle the loss of Naomi? Should we recruit someone to fill the slot?

Joline has already agreed.

If I know her, she's waiting a respectful length of time after Michael's post before saying "hi"

And Sam does know me.. (I've been reading up on your posts even before Michael's post)

Hi all! I'm Joline, 31 years old and from The Netherlands. I'm right now staying at home with our 1-year-old while also part-time finishing my PhD, so my online playing times are variable depending on the little one and deadlines .
Last time I joined Sam's game for the newbie initiative and had a wonderful time, so this time I expressed my interest as well, but couldn't join because I'm of course not a newbie anymore. So, although I'm sad Michael had to step out of your game, I'm very happy to get the chance to join. I'm involved in quite a few RPGs nowadays, mainly story-telling games, but hoping to cut back a bit within a few weeks (several games are in their end-stage).

Oh yes and English is my second language, so if there's ever something very strange language-wise, just let me know.

Michael Farewell!

Joline, welcome!

I think everyone's had a moment in our scramble to prepare for the guards? I feel like I could write a fair bit at this point but does anyone have any specific ideas with the guards/scenario either that you'd like me to include or points where you'd like to jump in?

I'm ready for whatever action you want to take. Still hanging back, trying to keep my cover of a servant girl.

Of course, sexy Gandalf is ready for whatever she needs to do.

(Not sure Gandalf is the right wizard to suggest, but it gave me a chance to say "sexy Gandalf.")

I've done everything I can for the moment. As for me, I say "Let them come!" (I say that in a very Cyrus-esque voice.)

Saying "sexy Gandalf" should definitely count for something! My mission in life is now to work that into the IC thread somehow.

Only thing I thought, which is why I gave Vance the keys, is Snargle might get 'relieved of duty' for being a clutz of a guard.

Goodbye, Michael; hallo Joline!

EDIT:
Having just looked back at the IC thread, the post I wrote up yesterday appears not to have posted cry

I will have to rewrite it again later boo!
