Throw the GM a bone...

Right now the game is in a phase of transition and information. Roleplaying and dialogue is in focus but you can also do other things.

If you are unsure of your role or what to do, you can do several things. Talking, guard duty and sleeping comes naturally to mind, yet there is even more things you can do.

The tattoo derived abilities could be explored, magic rituals and spells can be performed, Hunthar will undoubtedly be asked to beat breastplates and helms back in shape.

Whatever you do: remember to ask your questions now. Now you are all gathered, now you can dig and get the information you need.

Tomorrow I will continue the story and, unless you say otherwise, I will advance it to the ruined city of Ur-Keldon (or possible random encounters), AFTER you have gotten your precious sleep.

And remember: throw the GM a bone and he will make your life easier ;) If I get something to work with, I can easier make the story worthwhile for you.

FYI: The "bone" I referred to in the last post is "your post and your description of your characters actions" and nothing else. It seemed a bit ambiguous so I thought I'd explain better.

Weekend stasis

The game is put on hold over the weekend. I am going to visit friends and won't get much computer time.

When I return I will:
-Post what happens from the last post and until you enter the gates of Ûr-Keldon

Seeyas next week :)

Survey of Player Interest in the Game
« Reply #129 on: September 05, 2005, 07:44:37 AM »
Okay, I have sent you all a pm. I did so a while ago. In that pm I asked you whether you had any fun in the game, something I frequently ask my players about. You all said yes, though some of you wished for improved player posting (Improved rate of posting that is. The quality is good)

I made a statistic survey of your posting. I checked your post count, word count and character count (without spaces) in the first chapter of the game. Here is the resulting activity percentage: (I used total characters as a base)

Name/Acitivity Percentage (Part of 100% total)
Alec_Shadowkin: 7%
Ancient Gamer (GM): 41%
Captainpenguin: 10%
Chaosmark: 14%
EchoMirage: 15%
Maggot: 11%
Roack:2% (Entered the game late so real estimate is 4%)

I will move the game along within a short period of time

Sleep!
« Reply #131 on: September 05, 2005, 06:03:14 PM »
You are now all asleep, even Domunsoka who now has new needs ( and dreams and all).

I will not send you any dreams this time, but a player has stated a wish to create his own. I will give you all a little less than 24 hours to post, before I will describe whatever happens next.

So I suggest that you hurry :)

Summary
« Reply #132 on: September 08, 2005, 12:16:48 PM »
I posted a brief summary of your journey to Ûr-Keldon. It was not in poetic format, and for that I am sorry, but let us now switch to in depth poetic gamestyle, or what-have-you.

Some of you have been penalized somewhat in terms of divine favour, but nothing life threatening... yet.

Friendly piece of advice
« Reply #133 on: September 11, 2005, 07:25:04 AM »
This is not a drill.
1. Some of you are low on divine favour.
2. There is an assassin perched on the rooftops. His composite bow is drawn, his arrow notched and those of you still in the gateway are in his aim.
3. I will post his actions very, very soon.

This is the last time I warn about the dangers of low Divine Favour and late posting.

I'm sorry its been so long since I've posted, but I'm really really busy with school things and work. AG, you can feel free to do with my character what you will.

I have communicated with Alec per private message and we have agreed to put Flare out of the game for some time. I will post an update on his situation but the rest of you should not bother to wait for Alec to post.

I begged Alec to leave the game if he was unsure whether he wanted to continue but Alec dismissed that and said he would return at a later stage.

I really appreciate that you guys tell us that you are still in. I am looking forward to your and Maggot's post!

EchoMirage: I have read your pm. An answer will be forthcoming when I post in the game, which should be within a two day period.

24 hours have gone by and the hours sped past while I was chatting with my Croatian little sister.

I will post tomorrow morning and you still have my (somewhat tarnished) word for that.

Oh, oh, oh! I forgot how fun this was. You guys are performing very well indeed and I certainly hope to make my post before Chaosmark enters his long period of exile.

We are in the late mid chapter and I strongly urge people to stay in the game as best they can. I know a lot is happening for... well for all of you, but remain through the chapter and we'll take a looong break until y'all are ready. Then when you all report your interest, I will launch chapter 2.

As for my upcoming post: It is under construction and will be posted soon. Right now I gotta catch a train and stuff, but it is forthcoming very soon.

An idea you might find appealing
« Reply #147 on: September 29, 2005, 08:07:00 AM »
I was thinking today (I know it hurts, that's that masochistic streak of mine) and what I came up with is the following:

As all of us have phases where they have to miss posting, the rest could busy themselves in a side topic to maintain the interest in the game.

For example, each might write a limeric or longer poem about some character, or come up with things like "why did Flare walk into a bar". We might have the characters comment on IRL events.

Just a thought.
