So I've held off making a character sheet since I don't know if Vyeggar will be selected, but I'm having fun in the casino and if he's going to fight someone in the ring, may as well have some numbers to quantify his awesomeness. So that's my goal for tonight!

Really sorry I took so long to get to you, Grouchy! I've been moving from hostel to hostel so I got a bit distracted.

@Lentil --

With 16 players contending, do you want to tell us who is accepted? It's increasingly hard to say who's who or where the story will be going with such a crowd.

The current thread is a good opportunity for all the characters to interact, even if they aren't going on the mission.
Enjoy.

So, umm... yeah, let's go ahead and have a...

POST ABOUT THE STATE OF THE GAME

Cliche as it sounds, there actually are too many good applications to choose from. And I sort of blinked and did not notice that... like, holy smoke, there's 13 characters who are actually finished and ready to go. And out of those, plus however many more appear by the 18th of June, I've got to pick 8. Oh whoopsy-poopsy.

So, for now, I'm not going to bring my deadline forward for personal reasons. Long story but I'm still travelling and some point in mid-June I settle down to a stage where running two parties through a game is actually feasible.

And there's also the consideration of just how many people there are now who have applied. And with really really good applications, I have to reiterate. Now, if I had the deadline tomorrow and one of you put a gun to my head, I probably know who most of my eight would be, just based on the contents of the roleplaying thread and who is matching up well with who. But there are some reasons as to why I'm not making a final selection as of yet...
  • It'd be really unfair on the people who've only just finished their apps and haven't had the chance to use the Roleplaying thread yet
  • There are three players from a previous game of mine who have already got reserved spots. One has already finished their app, the others haven't yet and I don't want to rush them
  • I also want to give a chance to those who I reviewed to see what improvements they want to make to their characters and to take the feedback on
  • I mean, at this point, I really should just run three parties of four because otherwise oh no
  • Yeah, I'm seriously debating that with myself quite strongly

So here's what I'm debating. Some point soon, unless my own schedule does not permit (which at the moment it looks like it does) I'm going to start messaging the people who definitely definitely definitely are going to be in the game and literally have nothing else to do with their application. Mostly it'll be to determine who the best first party will be. In that instance, I'll be asking you who you think you'd gel with best, gameplay and roleplay-wise, anyone you want to avoid for whatever reason, if there's any more changes you want to make to your character or points you want me to clarify, etc etc.

Then I'll probably start running the game but just with the one party. Then, when the deadline is up, I'll have my other party, or other two parties if I'm confident I can fit a third party in. It just means that the people who are 100% done and really have nothing else to add can start playing, but it also doesn't mean that anyone gets punished for essentially coming to the party late.

So, yeah, that's sort of the state of play right now. Anyway, hope your weeks are going well, everyone!

That always seems to be the way you either get too few applications or you get far too many that it becomes almost impossible to pick.

Three parties is an ambitious undertaking but if you think you can handle it I am sure we would all appreciate the increased odds of getting in to the game.

+1 to Alatere's sentiments. If a staggered setup is possible, I think that everyone would prefer to be able to get in on the game, especially considering that many of us have had the chance to RP our characters, and therefore get attached to them. Seriously, I gave had actual Games that have died off before having this many Posts!

I should feel more shame than I do, but I totally read the deadline date as the 6th day of the 18th month, and didn't give it another thought. So I guess we have a little more time than I thought.

I don't want to tell you your business if you're dead-set on four players parties, but seems like it would be easier to expand to 6 player teams over running a third thread. But if 4 is your preference, then 4 it is. I'm having fun with the pre-game thread as it is, it reminds me in some ways as the On Your Shield pub thread in the West Marches game thread.

So, quick announcement - first, due to circumstances out of my control, rather than making three parties of four, I'll be running two parties of six. The once-per-week posting rate will DEFINITELY be in place, mostly because I'm about to be working on a farm with no WiFi for three months, so expect elaborate posts every so often rather than little posts every day.

Apologies for not getting the first party running as planned - this week has been more intense than I initially expected. I may or may not be able to get that going before I set off for work - more likely, I'll start messaging people who I'm pretty certain about, less to get the game going and more to identify who they would / wouldn't want to be in a party with whether for gameplay or roleplay reasons, or just thinking the player is really cool and wanting to stick by their super best-buds.

So, after much deliberating and umming and aahing, I've finally made a decision for the first group of the game!

Player Character Alignment Race Class Reason for Hire Status
Vaerdis Kara Kurdst Chaotic Good Human Prodigy Prisoner Accepted! Group A
Dylan Scott Kitwix "Grim" Hillivi Grimzinta Chaotic Good Traveller Gnome Sorcerer (Mongrel Mage) Sea-Dog Accepted! Group A
Touketsu Damien "Snake-Eyes" Buranta True Neutral Vishkanya Bard (Archivist) Local Accepted! Group A
CatCanCook Liana Xirkul True Neutral Halfling Zealot Theologian Accepted! Group A
Noquarter19 Vyeggar Vugmuk Chaotic Neutral Half Orc Brawler Blood Sacrifice Accepted! Group A
Alatere Tarbin Haldar Neutral Good Human Cleric of Otama Gladiator Accepted! Group A

For anyone not in this group, DO NOT WORRY! All this means is that SIX out of TWELVE players have been chosen! Everyone else, work on your apps if you feel you need to, I'll have another round of reviews soon, and anyone lurking and thinking of applying, you know what the standard is!

Everyone in this illustrious group, congratulations! You can make your character sheets if you haven't already, and I will be posting the first actual game post shortly (hopefully, maybe). I have allowed you all to keep playing in the pre-game roleplaying thread IF YOU WISH, though if you'd rather bow out and wait for the game to begin, you have that option.
