Hi All, I did not forget the PbP, I was just quite busy with Threshold magazine during the last month :)
Now I could return to it if you are still on board (Agathokles, Hihama and Dervish I mean)
Anyone else who wants to join/re-join is still welcomed.
If you agree probably monday I will post the start of your next adventure against Skarda! :)

Hi, as we have reached another "ending" for now, time for another poll about the PbP :)
It seems Dervish has not posted in a while, so he may not be available to continue playing.
So we could:
- Continue with a new adventure for Bofar and Lucius.
- Continue but also search for new players.
- Pause this storyline and play something else in Mystara with other characters
- Pause for a while or Stop altogether
Tell me what you prefer!

The storyline is fine for me. I suppose getting some new characters would be useful, though.

I'm willing to continue but as Agathokles wrote some new players would be good.

So far no other player has materialized. I've placed Taradain as semi-retired in Eveskyr unless her player returns.
Don't know if there are other mediums where we could search? Mystara facebook groups, others?
Anyway if you agree I would continue the PBP anyway.

Yes, there are Facebook groups for Mystara, which might be a source of players. I'm ok to continue either way.

Considering how much he has spent time outdoors, I think Bofar will take Survival -skill.

I was first thinking about some fancy dwarvish combat manoeuver like overrun...

MODERATOR NOTE: Do you want a hand looking for new players?

I found this topic (Wanted, Evil wizard Skarda! (And Players for the PbP)) which seems to be where you are explaining your campaign to would be players. It's been passed onto the social networking team and just hit the Facebook page for The Piazza, Facebook group for The Piazza and the Twitter feed for The Piazza. (The Google community for The Piazza is still being looked into, so it didn't get a crosspost there.)

Good luck. :D

I've wrote also to all the Mystara groups on Facebook but we do not have prospective players so far. Beyond that I do not know where else I could search, there are other boards obviously but it's not clear if they allow recruitment for games hosted in another board.
Anyway the new thread is up here if you wish to continue:

Consider that over time the propositions in the OP have changed in some ways, but we are still playing it with a slightly modified version of BECMI D&D (as we discussed here: viewtopic.php?f=101&t=19357)

OOC question: what is the status of Von Hendricks in the campaign. I mean, is he widely considered a villain, or would Rahasia's accusation sound unbelievable to a Thyatian-born Karameikan, such as Lucius?

It is not widely considered a villain, but recently rumors about mistreating of Traladaran and unprovoked attacks against the Five Shires have widely circulated and he is now more and more considered a hardliner Thyatian, bordering on Hattian supremacist, embarassing his cousing the Grand Duke. In the last two years in particular the relations between the Baron and the Duke are worsening month by month, and the Duke ordered him to desist from any attack on the Shires. Also Traladarans and "Karameikans", as well as moderate Thyatians, certainly despise his increasing vicinity to Thyatian extremists.
However his connection to the Iron Ring and alliances with humanoids and dark Immortals are not common knowledge for now.

Moved Bofar and Lucius to 5th level. Not much changes, not saving throws nor thaco. You both gain 2hp (in this game you have hps as Constitution +2 per level until level 9) and your AC improves by one point.
You can also add one combat maneuver (BECMI or 3ed feat which I will treat as a BECMI combat maneuver) or you could use instead that point for a BECMI Weapon Mastery meaning you can either learn to use another weapon OR become Skilled with a weapon you already use. If you become skilled, your Thaco and damage improve.
