Welcome aboard the Jenivere, landlubbers. This little ship travels thousands of miles of open ocean every year, but so far, your voyage has proven relatively uneventful.
Looks like someone has set up calendar appts for actual game days. Keep in mind, the times for these won’t be accurate. All our game times will be 7 pm EST, unless otherwise noted.
I’ll try using the calendar feature again. But, I’m going to use it only for days when we won’t have a session. Or if we meet on some day that’s not our regular time. Which reminds me .. any chance anyone wants to play on Monday?
In addition to being out on June 21st, I’m having surgery on June 28th, so unfortunately, there’s 2 weeks in a row where we won’t be able to play. So, I’ll try getting these up on the calendar. Think of it as like a short summer break from the game.
i hope so! i’ll total it up and post an update.
If we got more than 200xp last session it should have leveled us up.
I hope to have the repository setup and in place tomorrow evening. If I can get to it, you should notice a big difference in loading speed. But, you won’t actually have to do anything. Maptool will automatically sync everything for you.
Just a quick note … WOW! That was fantastic! Good job everyone. I can’t wait to see what happens next!!
Only 2 players showed tonight, so we’re going to postpone the game until the next session, on 4/12. See you then !!!
As far as levelling up tonight … we’ll need to do it before gameplay starts. How about this: you tell me what you want to do, I’ll update herolab and your tokens. Think that’ll work?
About the framework …
I’ve cleaned up a few things on your tokens. The framework isn’t well documented, to me at least. So, it’s kind of trial & error. just a few notes on how it works …
When you setup a weapon for your PC, you don’t have to include any stat bonuses. Those bonuses or penalties are calculated for you based on what you’ve entered for your core stat’s. Bonuses to enter would be things like magic or masterwork bonuses or special feats not already indicated in the core stats.
I also noticed that Amras’ rapier & dagger were both setup as off-hand. You can do 2 weapon fighting, of course, but there’s 2 different selections for this: off-hand light and off-hand heavy. I changed both of these to ‘Primary’ and ‘Single Weapon’. If you ever want to go back & fight with both weapons at the same time, then change 1 of them to ‘Secondary’ and ‘off-hand light’ (for the dagger or rapier). If Amras were to wield a longsword in the other hand, then he’d use ‘off-hand heavy’ for that 2nd weapon.
There’s also an updated framework out there which I’m hoping to utilize sometime soon!
I’ll be posting a few more details later this weekend. Just wanted to let you know how much I’m enjoying the game so far. It’s a lot of fun watching you react to and explore this island.
Now that you’re getting some loot … here’s my suggestion. Have 1 player volunteer to maintain a google doc spreadsheet of items you wish to keep and then list quantity & appraised value, plus any other notes.
I’ll be glad to update prior blog posts with your appraise results.
I posted the map of Smuggler’s Shiv you recovered from the captain’s cabin. If you click on the thumbnail, the actual size image gets chopped off. Otherwise, I’d stick a note on top of it to show your location. It’s difficult to judge, but it would appear you’re probably near the top of the ‘2’, if that makes sense.
Sorry for the delay in updates. I’ll be getting more stuff up tomorrow, including XP so far and a list of items you found on the Jenivere.
Tonight was a lot of fun, guys. This is a really good group, and I’m looking forward to seeing this story develop that you’re creating. I’ll be updating this site soon with a summary of tonight’s events along with a list of items you’ve found. So please keep checking in during the week.
Thanks again -
Also, I’ve updated most/all of the character tokens, and i think i found the problem with the disappearing tokens.
Be ready to use the Hamachi software again to connect. I’ll be putting the connection info on Skype shortly.
Sorry about putting AM for tonight’s session. As you probably guessed by now, it is indeed PM.
Carden votes for getting supplies from the ship soon.
Silence … well, I’d hoped to get a little conversation going in the group about what direction you want to take. Is anyone out there ???
Tuesday night, one of you mentioned exploring your location. I can post an image showing what’s visible to you, but there’s very little to show at the moment, since you’re still at the point where you washed up on shore.
However, I will say that to the horizon on either side, the beach stretches out and curves north, out of sight. Wherever you are, your first impression is that it’s a decent sized place.
OK, I’ll start inviting you guys so that you can use the forum. Once you accept the invite, you can go into the forum tab and reply to discussions or create your own thread.
Hey. Just joining up.
There’s a forum tab, but I have to pay for a subscription to use it. It’s not much … I’ll get that set up this evening. But the forum would be the best place to organize discussions about things like … what to do now?
How do we become a member of the campaign? Being I am the friendly neighborhood wizard.
Is this where we should talk/discuss amongst one another?
Just a quick note about starting hp. Go ahead and give yourself the max hp your PC is eligible to have. For each level, if you roll less than half of your new max hp, then roll again. In other words, with each new level, your hp will always be at least 50% of what it could be.
