Group Chat

Anything out of character goes here to keep the game thread clean: clarifications, questions, banter, etc... Most importantly, please let us know if you're going to be unable to post for any amount of time. Anything the other characters should not know can go in your private thread.

Welcome to our new player non-solo game. Thank you all for joining. Take your time on your character sheets. I'm planning on making the game thread on Wednesday, but then you'll have a few days to post after that. I guess this is a good time to talk about schedules. Things may come up occasionally, but I'm planning on two posts per week, probably Wednesdays and Saturdays. If anyone feels rushed or bored after a few weeks we can adjust that. Or go ahead and let me know if that schedule isn't going to work for anyone.

Haha, welcome everyone! Let us slay some dragons together. And maybe even explore a dungeon.

OK, so today may have been a bit soon. I was excited... I'll give everyone a few more days to get their sheets done. Hopefully we can get started by the weekend.

Glad you can join us! I'm going to go ahead and start posting, sorry for starting without you. As soon as I get your character reviewed, we'll introduce her to the game. Everyone else, the game thread now exists here. Make sure you're subscribed to it and your private thread, probably this one as well.

The opening scene may be a little chaotic for play by post, but it's a bit of a sandbox. There's little narrative right now, and you can pretty much do anything. Your first post can be whatever you want, from how you arrived, to what you're currently doing in the tavern. I think I've given you each enough information to begin a conversation with someone. I've also kind of left it up to you to meet each other. If you feel lost, let me know and I can try to put the game more on rails and take it in a more narrative direction.

HYPE

Personally, if things are stalling, I'd prefer we discuss ways for my character to help move things forward, rather than having you push something 'on rails'.

Do players plan things out in the OOC chat before putting it into the game thread? I'm not talking about meta-gaming, but discussing things about who might approach who, etc. I think the most natural interactions at the start, for Keloryn, would come from catching Tabatha staring at him while practicing magic, or being approached by one of the locals since I've been around for a couple days, asking the occasional question.

Sure! Sometimes it's best to say things in character, but making choices and strategizing as players can happen here. Either of those options are viable to bring Keloryn into the story.

Cool. If anybody wants to use it, Keloryn has been in town for a couple of days now. He mostly keeps to himself, either sitting in a corner of the tavern, or finding a nice comfortable place outside. Regardless, he always has his journal and quill with him, and regularly jots down thoughts and notes.

While he hasn't made much effort to engage with anybody, he responds in a friendly enough manner when approached. He only asks questions when he thinks it's logical. For example, he'll ask the barmaid about locals and rumors, but doesn't bother pushing for details he would consider 'above her paygrade', such as the type of dragon and location of its lair.

I had this same thought!

EDIT: Character sheet is finished. Will be joining the thread very soon.

Looks like that will have to wait since Keloryn went and assaulted a small child

I love your character and writing, can't wait until we meet. It should be interesting.

Hey gang,

Sorry for the late arrival. I've posted in the gameplay thread now, and I am subscribed, so I shouldn't miss anything else. Cheers!

LittleBlueNA, looks like I found Ban first! Although, I'm sure Tabatha and your character have plenty to talk about assuming they'd have the patience to deal with her.

That's ok, get a little of that initial enthusiasm out of her system first. Keloryn is socially awkward too, so there are sure to be fun times ahead.
