Hi Nep. You're not moving as fast as I thought you would, though you did say the game would only just have started when I return in Dec. Is it OK for me to work on a player character here now? I figure you might not actually have room in the party when Dec rolls around, but if you do at least you'll know what I'm intending to join with.

Hi Neil,

I guess that I didn't articulate it well enough. I knew there would be a summer slowdown. And although you can't see it, there has been a bit of posting but all in PMs. I've used the summer for that. Some players are owed responses in PMs and some have yet to even be engaged there.

All that being said, the answer is yes. I'll start a PM thread for the two of us to work things out because there should be purpose to the PC. I'm very fine with taking it very slowly.

Yeah, I thought you might be storming ahead by now so didn't want to be extra baggage. But I figure if I get something in the works now, the quicker I'll be able to join when the time comes. Thanks Nep. smile

To everyone,

While it may seem that nothing's going on, lots of stuff is. I kinda wish that there was a possibility of having restricted threads within a forum, like PM threads, to keep all of the "private" stuff associated and within the game. If there is, I don't know about it. There is movement in the PM threads so if I've not responded, I will soon.

Also, as you can see, Neal is creating a new PC for the game. I'm assuming that Pandemonium will continue to be MIA.

My assessment of where we are in the PM threads make me think that we're about 2 or so weeks away from posting a more in-game thread. All PCs will be coming into the game with a mission of sort. If you've been given that mission, hold tight. It means that I'm pretty much done with your PM threads.

Only option I know of is to have individual public threads and simply ask everyone not to read other people's threads if you don't want them to know what is happening there. An honor system.

Another update.
Neal is joining the party bringing the number of PCs to 7 which is a good number. He's playing a Triton Paladin, having retired Chandan. I'm working with him to figure out where he enters from but we're not going to wait for him.

I'm on another mini-vacation but I'm thinking that we're a day or two from the official in-character launch of the game.

Do you want me to create a link farm at the top of the forum, rather than clicking through all those sub-forums?

We could have something like:

Roll20 | Forgotten Realms Wiki | Game Resources
Arus | Bern | Davroar | Jaliera | Kriv | Ryssa | Zhu

Cool. Did that. If you aggregate your game resources into one thread at some point, I can add a link to the farm for that too.

That looks awesome! Let's go with this for now but you've whetted my appetite wink

BTW, if you haven't noticed the main thread post, the game has started. I'm continuing with several of you in PM still but you should all have enough to start playing in the forum.

I don't think that anything in the PM's is of "immediate" consequence in the game. It will be later so we can continue in parallel.

An important word about the factions.

There is a terrible risk of metagaming. It'll be important to play as if your PCs don't know as much as you know. I certainly waffled about even playing out the factions but factions provide a real opportunity to build character depth.

What do your PC's know?

Not much really yet. Some factions are bold and open. The Lord's Alliance and the Order of the Gauntlet are pretty open about who their agents are. The other factions are closed about who they are. So Jaliera, Davroar, Bern and Ryssa's affiliations are secret.

There's conflict and competition between some of the factions too. What is in the interest of one faction may not in the interest of the other. That's why we went PM to start.

And as far as citizens of Phandelver, they have NO clue about each other's affiliations.

Therefore, Exeter, please amend your latest post. I should have made this clearer from the start. Sorry.
