I have slept for 15 hours. I have had strawberries with milk and no sugar. My vacation has begun.

I concur with Echo's conclusion!
Authentic Strolenite™©®

Triumph of the Dungeon Master!

Ah, how I have come to love that sense of accomplishment and victory that I get when I pull the wool over the eyes of a clever player character. What DM Triumphs have you had?

Some of mine:
1. Finally killing an incredibly powerful, lucky, annoying player's character.
2. Finally achieving a TPK (Total Party Kill)
3. Finally achieving a TPK using only traps
4. Finally working out how to make it so that d**n wizard doesn't steal the spotlight all the d**n time.

Okay. The four available slots have been occupied. Roack and Maggot will be in standby in chapter 2 and there is no opening for MJS to rejoin with a new character at this juncture.

It is settled then:

Flare, the alchemist - Bound by tattoos and versed in ritual magics.
Biggest assets: Alchemy, Tattoos
Biggest drawback: Magic (hunted in Silmar), Tattoos
Estimated survival chance: 68% (Middling to Easy)


Sharee, the Squad Mage - Bound by tattoos and adept of spellcasting.
Biggest assets: Magic, Tattoos, Charms
Biggest drawback: Magic (hunted in Silmar), Tattoos, Touched by magics (not a favoured trait in Silmar)
Estimated survival chance: 45% (Middling to hard)


Domunsoka, Soldier - Bound by tattoos and skilled at swordplay.
Biggest assets: Immunities, Tattoos
Biggest drawback: Tattoos, Monstrous mutations (not favoured in Silmar)
Estimated survival chance: 27.5% (Very hard)


?????? - ??????????????????????.
Biggest assets: ?????????????????????
Biggest drawback: ?????????????????????
Estimated survival chance: ?????????????????????

Why? We're simply not going to Silmar. Period.

I had this division of Chapter 2 in mind:
EchoMirage + Murometz = Chapter 2 pt. 1
CaptainPenguin + Alec_Shadowkin = Chapter 2 pt. 2

If you do not agree, let me know.

What do you mean by "division of the chapter"?

Soon, very soon, you will know. ;)

Chapter 2 will follow a different format. While I consider the prologue a success, the first chapter was a long and painful failure. I have had a debate with other Citadellians about the best way to remedy the shortcomings of play by forum. Quick and effective chapters is what I currently hope will solve this.

Of course, that would require your consent. I cannot simply let divide your players and say "This is it. These are your rules". I need your consent.

Well, since I don't really know what you are planning for this chapter division, I guess I'm up for whatever, just surprise me.  :up:

so do I understand this correctly? In Chapter One, Echo and I will fight to the death with serrated swords to see who goes on to Round, er....I mean Chapter 2? :P

No. I divide chapter 2 in 2 parts. The first part is played out by you and Echo, the second part by CP and Alec.

This means you will travel to different locations. ;)

Sorry I've been gone, especially since it was without warning. I would like a bit of clarification on what exactly I will be doing "on standby" I assume it's just waiting until the second section.

I just noticed that CP is currently reading "The Drawing of the Three", and I would like to say that The Dark Tower is one of the greatest fiction series ever written. Roland is a slightly cliche character, but his companions and a lot of the 'NPCs' are extremely good.

Yeah, so far, I'm finding Dark Tower to be a masterful series, full of really cool surprises and nice little touches. The Wild West-ish fantasy is a nice touch, too.

Okay. Recent events have made me think a lot. I will no longer be as prominent on this site as I used to. This means the Coldforged game will be discontinued.

I am sorry gentlemen.
