    What the hell is happening on your end? I think I have to roll a couple Gather Information checks on your guy if I get out of my mess alive... Last post I got was pretty much a cliffhanger.

    I don't know, the best way I can describe it is it's the weird cousin of Beavis and Butthead enter Narnia. I just need to get through my current situation before I can safely pull some gather info check and try to find a more stable situation.

    The nice thing is you can operate on whatever scale you like. You want to work citywide, do it. You want to just focus on one district, that's fine. You want to focus solely on personal-level work without even aligning to a faction, always an option. You can pretend there's no one else in this game, or interact with a new PC every week. Think about how few games make it past six months on this forum. Think about how many fewer still get any interest if they come back from a long hiatus. Why does this game have no issues with either problem? Because it's not one game. It's pretty much all games. It's a Rorschach test, you see in it what you want to see.

I'm just thrown off since I'm encountering some stuff that would never show up in the "PCs are the center of the universe" trope. It's really interesting and allows for an even more convoluted level of paranoia and preparation.

    Indeed, the level of paranoiia and number of plothooks are huge!! I never know for sure if I really did tied all loose ends and I'm always afraid of forgetting about this or that plothook that I started.

    I might start hiring adventurers (PC or NPC) to help me with that actually.

    When I was playing a character, I kept handwritten notes of all of my own plot hooks. Being that planswalker and Monodominant have helped write so much of this setting, even I don't know everything there is in the city.

    Last time I regularly posted a list IC and if applicable much time is left for everything. That way I remind the DM as well as myself (since they usually have tons of PCs) and I make sure we are in sync.

    What I find kinda scary, is the fact most games eat through cities like nothing. World spanning adventure, hell plane spanning adventure is the norm.

    Yet, Aldhaven has enough depth to be a full campaign. Just rooting out corruption as a group of guards could be years sessions.

    You ever think about codifying and releasing Aldhaven as a setting?

    My girlfriend and I are working on exactly that. I'll probably be setting it up as a kickstarter when we're a little further along on it so we can get a hardcover version published.

    I'm really enjoying the game so far myself as well...though I have had a more slow paced experience then some of you guys from the sound of it(haven't been in a combat yet, and have only used attacks/abilities for making money). He may have a plot hook start soon, if things go well, would it be appropriate for him to post a message at Aldhaven inns advertizing his need of someone knowledgeable about local lore/legends or someone who knows about things such as caves, hidden passages, and other underground structures in Aldhaven?

    You can post anything you want anywhere you want. It just may not always make people happy or be entirely legal to do...

    If you want to post a notice with the Town Crier, it just costs a little bit of coin to get a message up.

    Hi everyone, just got my character accepted. I've been hearing about this game from several players for quite a while, and got convinced to give it a try. Hopefully I'll survive long enough to have some wacky misadventures.

    Sounds about just like most of the campaigns I've played in. Although this is the first time I'm playing 3.5E

    Somehow I doubt that I'll be able to top off my greatest achievement: having the group bring down Heaven's Judgment for threatening to undo creation... and being the only one to escape Judgment and be deemed innocent on the grounds that my character was an idiot.
