Next Monday
I have realised I won't make it next Monday as I am punting in the afternoon with work so I might not be home or if I am I will have consumed lots of Pimms!

Well done...
A session full of banana-skin encounters and situations, any one of which could (if badly handled) have hamstrung the party, but each one handled efficiently, with minimal fuss, and with no argument within the party and zero hassle? Who are you, and where are you keeping my regular players?

The slave ship/pliosaur/shark combination had to be handled fast, which is what you did. Any one of the assorted dinosaur encounters would have significantly weakened the party for very little gain. And the Arenae I thought would turn in to a blood bath.

Character for weekend
Think this makes sense...

Human Fighter


Name: Mendel Corun.

Home: Corungian (Darokin, Broken Lands border)

Str 14

Int 11

Wis 9

Dex 16 (+2, so 18)

Con 14

Cha 10

Weapon Groups: Basic, Bows, Light Blades, Exotic Weapons, Crossbows

Feats: Point Blank Shot, Precise Shot, Rapid Shot

Skill Points: 12

Craft (bowmaking/fletcher?) 3, Ride 4, Handle Animal 2, Climb 2, Jump 1

Starting Gold: 240gp


Longbow (75)

40 Arrows (2)

Longsword (15)

Kukri (8) (traded for with an Ethengarian merchant)

Studded Leather Armour (25)


Trail Rations (5 days) (3.5)

Artisans Tools (bowyer/fletcher) (5)

50' silk rope (10)

Backpack (2)

Signet Ring (5) (family crest)

Abacus (assume 5?)

Hammer + 15 pitons (2)

Waterskins (2)

Stone from broken lands (for sharpening, dipped in the blood of his first orc)

(this leaves 80.5gp for expenses, such as no one has bothered buying a lamp).

He would probably also be carrying arrowheads around with him; he'd have some bodkin heads, some flanking heads, etc. Not that this would or should have a big impact on the game, but its better to carry heads and fit them in to shafts than to carry a never ending supply of ammunition.

Quick concept: He's a younger son of an outlying branch of the House of Corun, brought up in Corunglain loosing arrows at orcs rampaging from the broken lands. He didn't have a good head for business, so he's decided to adventure.

I'll no doubt kit him out with some other irrelevancies (nik naks he's carrying and so forth), and they'll go on paper before I start.

Tonight's game
Not heard back from the other kings hedges lot about a pub meet, so writing that off.
Am I remembering right that the prof's off again?

I know we might be a person down on Monday, but are people still interested in meeting up for other games? I picked up a copy of Munchkin Zombies at my folks over Easter....

Just to clarify...
...we're all in the country, we're all free, we're all playing the game tonight? Our recent record on all turning up in the same place at the same time means that I feel like I should check. Less inconvenience for me than everyone else thought...

Wyrind, I've got more rhubarb cut than I can use. Want it?

Everyone else; who wants sprouting broccoli?

Monthly game
OK now the US trip is out of the way and things quieting down in new role, I'm more able to think about the monthly game again. Plus stuck indoors during a tornado in Florida, it gives you time to plan things...

I'm now thinking of a tangential campaign to cab's game  - the Savage Tide Adventure Path set on Mystara as it uses the Isle of Dread - as I think that could be fun. Open to thoughts/comments on this if you disagree, but provides a common ground for people

So wanted to see who's (still) interested, and if a start after easter works? Still thinking once a month, but probably being flexible on which weekends depending on availability. There's a couple of guys in North Herts who may be interested too - worth seeing if there are others who might be (I know K&L were mentioned last time...)?

Let me know, and we can chat next monday game

Monday game dates...
Not tomorrow (of course)

And as I'm having to go away for a few days the week after, not that week either :(

So back to normal the week after that?

When things get back to normal...
Did I rememebr right that the prof is away first week in April? Looking like I'm being booked on trip to Birmingham that week... so that'd mean Monday 11th April would eb first normal week for me able to game (could do the 6th if people around)

Tonight Taron will be in a cheap motel in Cardiff (Dulce nearest equivalent) rather than delaying the inevitable in Thothia....

Game tonight
Apologies, we've had a client migration sprung on us this morning and I'm going to have to work lates for the next few days. I won't be at the game tonight or Tuesday either.

At least i can do it from home.

SO close...
...to unearthing the whole picture. Not quite there, two or three points still missing, but its finally falling in to place.

Only a couple of details to discern now (like, if you want a massive private power supply, why would you have a fake story about making a new sort of coin rather than just keeping an operation like that a complete secret, and why ever get yourself involved in a mining operation hundreds of miles away when you've got your own supply too?), but all in all, the high level party are finally getting it.
