Oohh! Intriguing start! Quick question- are we all immediately in the same vicinity? Like say, a party? I saw that in the post it stated that we had seen only tribesman. Does that mean besides the PCs there are no foreigners?

I'm not posting tonight - sleep calls. Just wanted to get my thoughts out!

Slightly weird question perhaps, but I am going to ask it anyway...

Is there a preference for the tense that is to be used in posts? Present or past that is? Going by the opening post I am assuming present. Or at least that is the tense the DM posts are going to be in?

I personally have always written my posts in a third-person past tense. I can of course try something different.

Anyone have a fun guess as to how long a caravan from Sanction to Khur would take?

Okay, I found something that may be of use to everyone (or I am really late to the party...) I had been trying to find a good map of Krynn, but everything was either too small to read details, or just no detailed enough. I finally found a good one here.

Certainly in the same vicinity, but not yet a party. The fact that you are the only foreigners, however, should bring you somewhat “closer”.

Third-person past tense please. Unless someone objects?

A very good map, though somewhat old. Note that Palanthas is still spelled “Palanthus”.

You could also use this one.

Dude, NoQuarter. That post was awesome! I am so impressed but also actually laughing out loud at the idea of Aric following Tegan all the way across the continent. I love the writing style. Well done mate.

All the great opening posts already make me nervous for when I'll be writing mine somewhere on the weekend.

Ah, either way, there are all the signs that we'll tell a great story together. I'm very excited.

Don't sweat it, Mindsiege. My writing bottoms out and crashes for weeks at a time. When it happens, hold a wake for me and pour Single Malt Scotch on me. It works just like a reserection spell.
