Rennias Greystone:
I'd like to propose that we run Mere Flights Next.

Anybody willing to join Rennias?

In reply to Grumdar (msg # 971):

If you go to this thread link to a message in this game and scroll down until you find the ongoing adventures or the future adventures you can find a number of titles with a blurb and some indications about the most appropriate experience for the characters that will run the adventure.

Are we abandoning the adventure we're on?

Re: "Group 0" OOC Chat and RTJ Specific Adventures

No, there are multiple adventures happening at the same time in this campaign, with multiple groups playing in different part of the world. While you are playing an adventure, another group may have finished their adventure and may be looking for new recruits to go into some other adventure.

Re: "Group 0" OOC Chat and RTJ Specific Adventures

If Rennias is willing to have me along, I'd quest with him again.

And Mere Flights sounds as good as any. We need to return to the Swamp to figure out what's happening with the creature that escaped our clutches the last time we were there... See if there's anything we can do to hunt it down and stop it from creating more of its spawn.

Re: "Group 0" OOC Chat and RTJ Specific Adventures

Absolutely.

Anyone I've adventured with before so far int his game has an open invitation from Rennias to come adventure with him again. He's gotten along well with everyone so far thankfully.

Re: "Group 0" OOC Chat and RTJ Specific Adventures

That's two warriors, an archer and a mage. Will you be wanting to rejoin us Willow?? The last adventure was a little short and we didn't get to see much of you, but you're welcome as always.

So long as you don't mind getting your feet wet or muddy, and definitely don't mind the bad smell...

...and I'm not referring to Rudjam after his incident with the privy either.

Re: "Group 0" OOC Chat and RTJ Specific Adventures

As Rennias said, always welcome. And being non-aggressive is fine. That's why we have Graden and Rudjam - they're both willing and able to resolve any conflict quickly. I've been known to get involved from time to time, even our combat lightweight Rennias gets stuck in at times... Though his style is more (magical) pushing and shoving than slicing and dicing!!

Re: "Group 0" OOC Chat and RTJ Specific Adventures

Rennias has fire bolts When needed, but prefers to facilitate the others so uses push to debuff enemy attack rolls. He has iron hand where he can buff skill ratings for hard fights. I am looking to get more debuffs and buffs over time.

In reply to Rennias Greystone (msg # 982):

It's all good, my friend. Any help and assistance (from magical pushes to handbags and slaps) is all good.

Plus, don't you have a bow you've been successful with so far?? I know we don't have much time to train, but if you need a hand with practice and training that skill I know someone with a hunting lodge and a little skill himself, so plenty of space to do just that...

Seriously though, if we need extra time to train now's the time to ask - especially if we can get a reduction to our daily cost of living!!

I have so many skills I want to improve I may have to not go on an adventure or two in order to develop how I need to!!

OK, I'll start up Mere Flights.
Are you taking a ten-day break to improve your abilities between adventures? I have to sort out the dates :)

Re: "Group 0" OOC Chat and RTJ Specific Adventures

I'll be taking at least 1 tenday as well. I have a single free tenday left from the Anathema adventure but I'm gonna save it for later.

Re: "Group 0" OOC Chat and RTJ Specific Adventures

I think it is about time to start the informal conversation about Dave Arneson's Day Essay Competition, that has been disputed during the last couple of years.

Re: "Group 0" OOC Chat and RTJ Specific Adventures

Don't think dispute is the word... Undersubscribed, possibly, even one sided (I posted them nobody else did).

Perhaps if posts are made privately to prevent a repeat, and more time is given?? I understand that a timescale is necessary, but since we're all still taking holidays, etc, would it be worth posting the task sooner to give more time?? Or .make it less about a personal question and more a creative writing exercise to encourage all players to post??

For example, write a short quest involving your existing character, displaying features skills and abilities you would aim to acquire with the reward from the writing competition...

Re: "Group 0" OOC Chat and RTJ Specific Adventures

In reply to Jan Tarran (msg # 989):

Well... the Dave Arneson's Day is on the 1st of October, so the timeframe is quite fixed... starting on the 1st of September seems OK to me.
Said that, I'd like to collect some inputs on making it relevant (and hopefully more attractive) for this year.
Ultimately, this campaign is a tribute to Dave Arneson, so for me this little exercise is an important part of the campaign. I'd like to do it as best as I can, with your suggestions :)

Could you summarise the previous competitions so players have an idea of what has went before??

In reply to Jan Tarran (msg # 992):

Sure. Dave Arneson's Day Essay Competition (2022) can be found here: link to a message in this game and Dave Arneson's Day essay competition (2021) is here: link to a message in this game
In practice, as this campaign is a tribute to Dave Arneson and to his Blackmoor campaign (the first fantasy campaign), the competition is about writing an essay on a related topic (to be decided) in exchange for a prize consisting of Experience Points for your characters.
This year I'm still undecided about the topic and I'm open for suggestions :)
