    I wouldn't mind having another one join in on recovering the stolen item.

    We are going to be trying to find the item (on the quest board). We still haven't decided on when/how to meet yet.

    I have no idea about this quest other than that you want to pursue it, though I am guessing it comes from the city crier so my character knows more about than I do . We can meet there, sure. I've hit a wall at the moment anyway, literally.

    Yeah, I kinda hit a will with my one idea (more so that my character didn't feel safe perusing the quest by himself).

    And yes the location is in the town crier.

    Hagan, at least as far as I controlled him, has never knowingly assisted the group we're talking about. If your DM had him do otherwise once I stopped actively playing him, then that doesn't count.

    Well the knowingly is the key word here...

    My point was that I didnt move against the Jacks because of the Duchess... I moved against the Jacks due to that group and THEN asked the Duchess to support it...

    Hence those that helped me take down the Jacks worked for well... that group. The fact that a squad of them was present in the wrap up might also give a hint ;).

    Also, would supplying that group count?

    In any case, I have been enjoying this game for 2 years now so like I said, I am really happy to see you back and restarting it!

    For a moment there I thought Triumphanthero forgot he wasn't playing TeamFortress 2 and fully intended to save the day and get rich by wearing increasingly powerful enchanted hats.

    Now I see he wants to bring TF2 to the NPCs. An odd cause, but noble nonetheless.

    My character has also come to the city due to a quest as well...though he's not sure how much truth is in the legend he's following. Should I have him research a bit more before he starts leaving notices around shops/hiring the town crier? Or do you think that having him look around for either pcs or npcs that know about obscure legends would be a better start before trying to get a team together.

    You should raise a small army to help you with this quest, optimally with even less preparation and knowledge than you have right now. Then you'll trigger a case of Western RPG tropes along the way and stumble on enough treasure to retire twice despite not finding your goal regarding something of questionable existence.

    Monodominant, how you been, man? Is Ishmael still in existance somewhere?

    Nice to see this up and running again. I'll see if I have the time to get something going. Is the continuity effectively the same, Riz? (ie: did all that happened before still happen?)

    As a complete aside, I am in the process of rereading the Shadowy Connections thread. It was hot.

    Probably whatever level Ishmael and/or Little Green are now, as they're about the oldest continually running characters.

    I know the highest I personally saw was level 10.

    Howdy Lokio!

    Yes Ishmael is still around as is Little Green.

    Generally I am more focused on various political stuff... using my unique talents to advance the various causes Ishmael weirdly supports. So I havent gone around chasing XP but I am 11 or 12 (I have 11 on the sheet but I leveled some time ago and forgot to actually do the leveling part!) Still, compared to what I could be, Ish is pretty unoptimised in order to follow the more fluffy aspects of his endeavours.

    Hello all, especially old-time buddies like Riz, Lokio, and the other Aldhaven vets. I'd like to officially welcome everyone to the Aldhaven Arena! Of course you have to locate it in-game, but given that it is a giant glittering glass structure amidst the squalor of the lovely Slums district it likely won't be too hard. Wilstaff and Bennett are back in action thanks to our benefactor Planswalker, and so we're looking for a few good PCs who want to kill or die for entertainment, XP and potentially a bit o' profit. To say nothing of employment opportunities with the Blue Hands...but then, I really can't say anything about that. You have to find out for yourself.

    My Characters:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Arena:
    Train, 9-1, Round 58 Champion, Round 79 Champion
    Battle Janitor, 6-0, Round 65 Champion, Round 72 Champion
    Fiorella, 4-0, Round 60 Champion
    Mr. Solus, 6-2, Round 67 Runner-Up, Round 75 Co-Champion

    Campaign Characters:
    Drace Sterling

    Aldhaven's Arena, open to all who love to kill and maim!

    Let me tell you that that battle made quite an impact on Piscine, think he has played three Psionics since. He also seems to think Ego Whip is a substitute for diplomacy, but that might just be more related to his personality.

    Does anyone have any experience with the level up system in this campaign? Does the DM just tell you when to level up? Do we get xp for roleplaying? Cause my character is very non-combat.

    It might just have something to do with the fact I've put off leveling up my character for a level, but I'm just curious. Play by post seems to level rather slow compared to real life play then again my old group was VERY trigger happy, and saw "violence" as the favoured reply to everything.

    I find that all the DM's I had catered to whichever playstyle I preferred. Basicly, risk or learning grants reward, be it from combat or RP.

    I just realized something, that I need double checked before I start attempting it.

    Since "War of the lance" is an allowed book, that means the master class exists since my character you know is playing one.

    Does that mean master craftsmen exist and we can buy stuff like +10 skill bonus items, and +5 master work swords?

    I run XP differently than most other DMs. My players always complain about it, because they feel cheated, but I think it's fair.

    From combat, you get a maximum of half normal XP from the encounter, and then you get it only if it was actually challenging to you.

    From noncombat encounters, you usually get one of three rewards: XP/GP, new contacts, or increased influence. In general, if you do something for personal gain, your reward is the thing you were trying to gain. For example, opening a successful business gives you the business itself as the reward, and you don't automatically get XP from it. Something that eztends your influence in the city gives you that influence as its reward.

    The fastest way to gain XP, if that is your goal, is to do things that increase the influence and power of others with little personal gain to yourself. You will gain XP along the way from various actions.

    In short, your character becomes increasingly powerful as you play, but it isn't always reflected by XP gains. My personal character, I believe, gained far more power through making friends and gaining influence than he ever did from gaining XP. XP was not my personal goal.


    1As to your item question, just because an option is available to players doesn't mean that it's available to NPCs. No, you can't just buy those items.
