This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

FYI - my hard-drive died (getting it replaced today, hopefully) but if I'm scarce for the next few days you'll know why.

Not a problem! We're ready whenever you are. I'm about as low pressure as it gets.

Update: I'm mostly recovered form the hard-drive crash. I have Skype and Screenmonkey loaded up. However, as tomorrow is the last day of ski season, unless the snow is sliding off the mountain I will be there and not here tomorrow morning (my time) - I apologize again, but since I survived last time I guess I might pull it off one more time. Then I will be back the following week and from then on.

Thanks! :)

No problem, just jump back in when you are ready! If I notice you are up on Skype I will call when the game starts, but if you aren't available, no problem.

I just got through running the Gygax-a-thon.. we got all the way through the Hill Giants and about halfway through the Frost Giants in the Giants Series. Everyone had a blast and is agreeing to meet up for the next part in two weeks.

I'll post some pictures from that in a little while.

Anyone else want to play AD&D1e? Let me know.. send a PM or just post over here. Everyone is still 1st level except for Norcon. Heh.

Here are my assorted notes for this week's game:

Accursed Badlands: Called such by Tangal's old hirelings (see below), inhabitated by werewolves (possibly) and salamander folk
Tangal's Old Hirelings: Two heavy footmen from Ravens Hollow, currently disloyal and favorable towards Nocron, wanted to leave AND they did, taking Tangal's stuff with them (GRR!)
Salamander Lords: Rule the salamander folk in the bad lands
Salamnder Folk: Inhabitants of the bad lands, look to the dragon ravine as a holy ground, they were agitated into aggression by Tili and are now threatening Lyca; they have actually begun to attack travelers
Choerstipix the Ancient: Famous red dragon, devastated the lands centuries ago, slain and his body dragged to the ravine by the local lord
Golden Moon Guild: At war with the Monkey's Paw Guild, a thieves' guild in the city of Lyca
Monkey's Paw Guild: At war with the Golden Moon Guild, a thieves' guild in the city of Lyca, Norcon is now a member
Phane: Unique creatures that the wealthy of Lyca have come to desire, they are a cross between a rabbit and an insect, and are often dressed in jewelry; wild Phanes go for one thousand to two thousand gold pieces

By the way, were the silver bands worn by the trogs included in the XP total given at the end of the session?

re silver armbands:

Look at my "spreadsheet" for the exact calculation. It´s on the wiki. Tell me if I overlooked anything.
