Ok, was reading a blog and you can consider the style of this campaign a sandbox campaign rather then an 'adventure path'. Just saying..

Do not feel hindered by the plot lines I am introducing. I encourage deviation... :P Things are happening. Plots are afoot.

Simply because it needs to be done (in response to Scras' comment about CHA 15 not being hard on the eyes):

P(A|B) = P(B|A)*P(A)/P(B)

Which is why Scras prefers a system that has Appearance and Charisma as seperate attributes.

Well, actually for DnD, the Book of Erotic Fantasy supports a seventh attribute, Appearance. I can upload it for ye.

For 1st ed, I always used the Comelyness attribute just to deal with this issue.

Well, it's R-rated, and NSFW as hell of course. But well written, with light humor, and surprisingly neither too cheesy nor crude. An enjoyable read.

I flipped through the BoEF, and was not horribly impressed.

Comelyness is such a cumbersome word.

Just wandering around the old internet and I found some assorted pages on the Skekses, the villains from The Dark Crystal. Man, that would be something really really wierd to play.

Yeah, I had posted about 5 days ago, but didn't get a response until today. I believe we're waiting on our dinner partner to return so we can discuss travelling around in service to the Mage guild? Thus, no postitty from me until dinnah time.

Okay, ball is pretty much in you folks court.  Let me know if you want to fast forward any of the timelines.

Where possible, try and coordinate via PM.  Things are going to start happening fast when this day is over.

I'm...mildly confused as to the ordering of things. Balin was speaking to Jaegarmond and Jhoric, yesh? Did we skip 24 hours, to the next meal? Or am I really missing out on something? Can't really post until I get this figured out.

I'm getting really swamped with class here, so my quasi-unoffical withdrawal from the rp is becoming definately more offical, sorry to pull out on you all.

To clear up any confusion, I'm reading val's last post as Jhoric waving over Balin, since Jaegarmond is already with him. Mis-read it at first, so I'd be willing to bet others did as well.

Okay folks, please post any pre-expedition preparations now.  You can get some dried fish and acorn paste, as well as dried berries and few somewhat tastier nuts - sufficent for 1 weeks sustainance - from your various contacts and guilds for the expedition.  This 'food' weighs about 1 lb per day and assumes you will be finding all of your water as you go.  In any case, there is a big river beside Respite with perfectly potable water upstream - downstream, not so much...

There will be some fast-forwarding during the expedition - we will not be playing out every square foot of the trip, so if there are things you do as a matter of course, please let me know in this thread.  Examples would be foraging for food as you go along.

Also, please decide on a marching order and any ususal actions you may choose to do when making camp.  I will assume a campfire unless otherwise specified since cold-camps are really not that much fun.. :P

 Hooray, precautions! I will forage for food as we go along and I will also make sure that every time we camp we have a watch set out (Everyone is smart enough to know to do that, I just wanted to say that I'm doing it).

Fafnir would gladly aid Toboran in foraging. Fafnir knows his ways about woodlands so he would want to be closer to the front in marching order. Fafnir is strong and if the need arises he can help hack through the denser brush.

Jaegarmond will keep an eye on the surroundings while the others forage. Demon-forged instincts die hard. Unless there's objection, he'll also try his hand (the non-planted one that is!) at cooking for the group. Marching position: middle of the pack. Once again, instincts die hard, and he knows he's squishy compared to others.

Spells will be memorized and refreshed every morning before setting out.

Jhoric isn't a forager, but he can use his Detect Magic invocation if we need to check out something suspicious. Jhoric marches in the middle near the back or actually the back if no one else wants it. He could blast some small animals from great distances for food.. if you're willing to eat chaos-warped meat.
