    Lostsole31... I nearly fell out of my chair laughing at your last post.

    Poor guy. I wanted him to catch a fish so badly. Que sera. The dice giveth and the dice taketh away. In this case, they gaveth your character a cold and tooketh away your character's dignity.

    Update... subscription?

    The forum is eating my posts.

    Sometimes the forum will not update the thread correctly and you will not see the new post, despite knowing that it is there. Do not panic, it is still there and you can view it.

    This is a known issue and we ask the following two things:
    Do NOT post again in order to make it visible.
    Do NOT post again in order to make it visible, then delete your post.

    If you would like to view the post, you can hit reply, without actually replying, then scroll down to the Topic Review area, below the Reply to Thread input box. But, do not reply just to fix the bug, not even if you delete it.

    The problem will fix itself on its own.

    It's not just about being able to view a post ... which seems simple enough ... but about being able to update the subscriptions page. Unless it shows "green" then there's a good chance ... even with the post updated ... that the thread will be ignored because members of that thread don't realize it's been updated.

    That's the real crux .... communicating to fellow players that more information exists.

    Thanks Rawhide.

    It took some time and a few experiments on different threads, but I eventually figured out that my posts were posting; I just couldn't see them. It had me worried; especially since I'm DM'ing a campaign right now.

    @ odigity: You hit the DC. Please feel free to describe what you're cooking. If you don't want to describe it, then shoot me a PM so I can add it to the story line in my own words.

    Incidentally, players who eat your food can add +2 on Fort checks. It's not a spoiler to say it's going to get cold tonight, since it's early Spring. A check may be in order if you don't use equipment that is designed to protect from the cold.

    @ PSinger: We'll call that a long-term care check and say that his CON penalty will be restored at twice the normal rate. So... I think he's back to normal within 4 hours.

    It's been over 24 hours since the last RP themed post, so in the interest of keeping up with game flow, I'm going to advance the plot. If anyone wanted to add anything, please post in OOC your intention for the story, and we'll rewrite history if it affects the story line.

    Since it's been three days since odigity posted, I'm going to wait until this evening, after I finish my 4e campaign and then post his initiative for him if he hasn't by then. That will be roughly 10 or 11 hours from now.

    Let me know if this is a little too strict. I just want to make sure the campaign keeps moving forward. My wife is been in a campaign since Feb. 10th and they've only just now left the tavern... have not left the town yet. All the PCs haven't met each other yet.

    I've noticed. I'm already a PC in two PbP campaigns, DM'ing this one and trying to join 2 more, and I have my irl 4e campaign once a week (which cancelled tonight), and I still have time on my hands for more D&D.

    Of course, I'm a fan of the format. PbP gives me time to check my work before I post. I always feel a lot of pressure to rule fairly on campaigns (can't stand god-moding and railroading DMs), which is why all my IRL campaigns are core only. But with this, I can look things up and make sure I'm not over-ruling something that a player should be able to do, or neglecting an opportunity to let a rule add a fun new challenge to the game. Because of that, I don't have to over-prepare for every possible contingency (you should see my campaign notes for my last campaign as an IRL DM). It's nice... a much more light-duty way to DM.

    But still... all this thumb-twiddling is a bit tedious. That's why I think 3 days of inactivity should be the cap.

    Well... I just finished baking an experiment: Honey-Glazed Rice Cookies.

    rice, flour, sesame, cinnamon, sugar, milk, honey


    I'm not sure if I like it. It tastes good but rice gets really crunchy when you bake it... like really crunchy. I boiled it a bit on the creamy side, but perhaps I should've boiled the rice until it turned into more of a paste.

    So... that's what we're eating for dinner: Honey-Glazed Gravel Cookies.

    3 days is standard in my campaigns ... but their PCs actions are co-opted by the DM to the best and most honest manner in which I can represent how the character is played by the player. There are no weird 'bubbles' that take the character out of existence ... that totally destroys the illusion we build here.

    But life happens, so 3 days is not an expulsion. If there are several actions missed, then I try and contact that player ... and so on.

    Inex, you should try a form of Juke. Boil the rice into a paste like liquid or slow cook it in a crockpot all day until you get a creamy consistancy. Season to taste and add a meat of your choice in small pieces or shredded throughout. Not bad at all...once you get used to it...that is.

    Thanks for the words of advice, Azoth! I'm neither a great cook or a great baker, but I thought I'd surprise my wife with something sweet when she got home. She appreciated the disaster for what it was, but I wish I could've done better.

    I'll try that next time, friend.

I can give you good old southern recipes or sicilian/italian ones...and even some health food...though no southerner likes to admit they /can/ cook healthy.

    PSinger, you smacked the bajeezus out of it, and turned my CR appropriate random encounter into what will likely be a merry jaunt through some warm up exercises. But the server started backing up right when I was going to reply, so I had to call it a night.

    Sorry about the slow posting today. MissMVicious has been hogging the computer rebuilding her mid-level character. I'm jealous... kind of wanted to be in that campaign as a Desmodu Fighter. Stupid freakishly high LA.

    You could post a request on the PbP... I'd join as an interested player.

    It was my first attempt with a monster as a PC. I normally play humans, but they were having a campaign where the ruler of the land was exiling monsters (all non-human races) because he thought of them as a scourge of the land.

    I did a lot of research to find a monster that looked terrifying but wasn't actually evil. I found the Desmodu... huge, enormous fangs, large black claws, coarse reddish brown fur and black beady eyes... typically good aligned. Perfect. They even had great fluff about being natural enemies of the Drow who were routed and decimated in a war against them. The backstory was going to be great- kind of a metaphor for wartime collateral damage. He was going to be the proud, stoic warrior trying to make a new life in the land to which he and other monsters were fleeing from the persecution. Then I read that Lvl 12 limit for the campaign, looked at the LA on the Desmodu, and just gave up. I'm warming the bench as an alternate now. Sure, I could've picked a different monster, but I wanted Desmodu, so it's worth the wait, though with all the super heavy RP, I doubt they're going to level up to 15 (minimum level before I can join) before the campaign breaks apart.
