Cool I saw the side thread and was wondering what was up.


Sounds like a great idea to get your feet wet.


By the way Ulthok is only still in the story because he has an Amulet of Life Protection that has saved him about three times.
Tann keeps threating to have something happen to it, would really ruin my day. As the party thief and usual trap finder it is a great asset to the whole party if your lead person can come back from an oops.


Well I start a new job on the 28th and I am hoping my whole atitude is much better. Been out of work since the end of October.
I really hope too that this position has a lot less stress.


As for healing I have gone so far as to make a spreadsheet before that had everyone's spells, potions and whatnot listed so we could repair the damage done in battles. It at times took several different characters acting together to combine enough healing to bring the party back to a stable condition. We then need to find time to rest and regenerate healing spells., maybe find city and buy more potions. So don't get too worried, just try to play smart and ask us advice in Q&A.

If this is getting toward the end of Tann story then we can figure we will be facing the worst of the badies.


The closer we get to trying to distroy the sword the harder it will be to stay alive. Coordinated attacks and defences will be critical.

Should be moving forward soon. I hope I get my story telling back soon.
We have several things to do in character before we move on.
Tann should lead us through some of it. We need to understand how the timeline change may have effected each of us. How our history may be a bit different. Ulthok needs to raise Peri. The mages will need to choose spells once we get the next assignment.
Of course the party needs to meet the new members. So there should be a bit of rollplay before we head out.


Keeper, I didn't forget about the little back story of Cor and Ulthok. It just got pushed around with the holidays and my job search.

Subject: Ulthok...A Little Back Story.........


Delholmes was the owner of the little book shop in their village near Took. It was in his shop, with his help that Ulthok learned to read and write. Mother and PaPa thought that was a waste of time, no dirt farmer halfling needed to read and write. But ulthok never wanted to be a farmer. His brother Delthak was already gone adventuring so he hooked up with a traveling show, which actually turned out to be connected to a thieves guild. They soon realized how nimble and flexable he was it didn't take them long to train him and incorperate him into their so called shows.


Ulthok moved to Weallin,the capital city of Cormilin, with a rogue Halfling from the show known as Trapspringer. Ulthok just referred to him as Uncle. So his early schooling was most in the thieves’ guild where he showed a great ability, which some thought mystic. 


The city streets and back allies of Weallin were a rough place for child as many would try to play on his innocence. Few realized he was a Halfling so as time pasted Ulthok learned to play the part of a simple child. His innocent appearance would put bullies and thugs off as they were over confident. They would think they had him cornered and his purse would be an easy pickings. The guild had constantly put him through training of jumping, rolling and dodging. They also taught him how to handle a knife and short sword.  The guild was rough on him so Ulthok would know the pain of failing. His often bruised face added to the look of easy prey.  Escape was his main goal but there were time when a bloodied thug lay in the alley with his own purse missing.


Shopkeeper’s wives would take pity on the poor little thing and give him food at the back door. This allowed Ulthok to view the locks and passage into the shop for a later return at night. Part of his training to retrieve items assigned to him and return to the guild. Picking locks, unlatching windows and even scaling walls to access upper windows became a natural skill. At first Ulthok thought it more a game but in time he realized the lose to the shop keeper meant harder times for them and their families. It wasn’t unusual for Ulthok to sneak back and replace the items, much to the disapproval of many guild members. Of course there were also the charlatans that cheated their customer, those Ulthok visited for fun and to deal evens. When the guild threatened to take dark actions against Ulthok for stealing back and returning items Uncle Trapspringer would step in and Ulthok’s only punishment would be harder training.  The harder training paid off as Ulthok achieved the status of “Master Thief” before he reached his age of maturity. But there were still things he needed to learn. Uncle Trapspringer tried to tell Ulthok about how to sense traps and wards. Though he boasted about the simple spells he could cast he lacked the skills to teach the arcane.


Shortly after Ulthok found himself placed in the servitude of a local Wizard when he had been caught picking his pocket. Little did Ulthok know it had been arranged by his uncle. That servitude turned to an apprenticeship. The wizard saw the attention to detail and the natural sense of his surroundings that Ulthok possessed.  The simple cantrips of everyday life only took one or two trials before Ulthok could perform them skillfully. As the years progressed the wizard instructed him in more and more difficult spells. One evening the wizard presented Ulthok with a paper bound package. When Ulthok unwrapped it it was sturdy leather bound Boccob's Blessed Book. Many runes decorated and in the center was an inscription,”


Presto


 


Tome of Magic


 


 


Ulthok Rydenham “.


 


Ulthok looked at the inscription, “Sir it says Ulthok Rydenham.”


“Yes lad..you are no longer my apprentice. I have shared with you what spells I can but it is up to you gain the skill to cast them. There is still room to add your own.” Along with these the wizard gave him an amulet of life protection and a scroll that provide him with a creature to aid him similar to having a familiar. “As you go out to see what you can do, these may help …use then wisely.”


Ulthok had learned to wield magic as no Halfling had been able to do before him. This unique combination of skills was quickly recognized by the local court and Ulthok was recruited  for “Special” missions. But what he had learned to love were the random adventures he picked up at the local Inns . The next few years Ulthok honed his craft and gather a bit wealth to boot. It was in one of Inns he heard that the King of Shanntara was looking for adventures to serve as a reaction force for the King and his allies. Little did he know what adventures awaited?

Topic: How to add pictures to posts?
Subject:


I can load my photos to Google Photo. To add to the post I go to the photo album, open the picture I want, right click on it and choose “Copy Image Location”. Then in the post I move the curser (the blinking vertical line in the text area) where I want the picture like I was going to type text. I then move the curser/arrow to click on the "Insert/Edit image" button in the menu bar, paste the location into the “Source” field. Click ‘OK” and the picture will be inserted where the text curser was. Now I click on the picture to select it. For me this shows an outline around the picture and the four corners have a small square. I grab a square at a corner and drag the corner in or out to resize it as I want.


Hope this works for you.

Topic: How to add pictures to posts?
Subject:


This was posted by Eol.....


Posting images works pretty much the same as it always has only it's been "simplified" a bit. Here's how it works:



  • Just as in the past, you'll need to upload/save your images on your own hosting site (i.e. Photobucket, Freewebs, whatever).

  • Once your image is uploaded and you're ready to post it here, you simply start your post and, when you get to the point where you want your picture placed, you click on the "Insert/Edit image" button in the menu bar.

  • The url for your image's location goes in the "Source" field (instead of using the html tag [img src="http:blahblahblah"] tag as you did in the past... the code behind the "Source" field adds this tag for you so all you need is the url).

  • In the "Image Description" field, you enter a brief description of the image (i.e. Tann's Picture). This is purely optional, of course.

  • If you'd like to specify the dimensions of the image, you do so in the "Dimensions" field(s). This is also optional. Leaving this section blank will display your image at it's default size. 

  • Once you're done, you click "OK" and, BOOM, your pic is magically in your post!!!

  • Super-facelickity-groovalicious, right?


Aaaaaaaand that's all there is to it, Innmates! No muss, no fuss!


 


Now, if none of the above made sense to you, feel free to say so and I'll see what I can do about making the instructions simpler... and then make fun of you! (Contact Eol)

Subject: Back Story.....


I had written a back story to tell how Ulthok joined the team. As I had written his early years to gain his skills I did some back reading to cover his brother Divot. Well I found stuff I had NOT known about Ulthok and my whole story has to be rewritten.


Man I had to go back to page 30-31 to find where Divot entered and found a bunch of history along the way from when Dragonmist was running Ulthok.


So I should have something up after Christmas.

I just looked to when I started playing Ulthok. Back on page 138, January 17th, 2011.
How time flies. I really wish there was an easy to way to search through the story.


I write my posts in Word and then copy paste them into the post, then edit. I really should have been dating them.
There has been some roleplay too that I wish I could easily find. It could help get back in character.

Subject: uLTHOK THE 4TH...........


Hi Dragon,


I'm about the fouth person to play the character Ulthok. I took over about the end of the second adventure.
I changed him some when I started and he has changed more since then. He was CN when I started him but through my play Tann and I agreed he was now NG, that let him get a familure. Getting Peri as a familure was a suprise.
Peri has been a PC and a NPC. I have played both at times. Because they had a psyche link it was easier to coordinate them.
She we killed in the last adventure and Ulthok will be trying to raise her.


Ulthok has got a little darker in character which reflects some of my personality shift over the last few years. As life got stressful my writing lost some of Ulthok's humor. I truly hope to bring some of that back. So I too have go back and reread some stories to get that back.

Subject: A Little Background on Ulthok.....but not all of it.....


Ulthok stands at 3ft. 4in and weighs in at 38lbs.His face is little more oval then round and although somewhat rugged looking he projects an air of innocence. His hair is jet black and quite long and he keeps it back in a pony tail he has thick long sideburns on each cheek.
His skin is deeply bronzed from the elements and this sets off his deep hazel eyes. He is good at making people see him the way he wants them to. He uses his eyes to appear innocent and harmless or to give you a dark piercing stare that makes you feel like his is looking into your soul. He appears never to wear armor only a skin tight body suit with normal clothing over it.


Ulthok does not remember his parents or where he born. For as long he could recall he was raised in the capital city of Cormilin by a rogue Halfling known as Trapspringer. Ulthok just referred to him as Uncle. So his early schooling was most in the thieves’ guild where he showed great ability, which some thought mystic.  Ulthok achieved the status of “Master Thief” before he reached his age of maturity. Shortly after Ulthok found himself placed in the servitude of a local Wizard when he had been caught picking his pocket.

Subject: Welcome................


Hello......... Time to add the Ody welcome.


As you found a really good place to start here is “Pit F(r)iend's epic guide to getting started for newbies.”  That  will help you figure out how to navigate the halls of the Inn.


To meet folks in real time pop into the DragonChat where I act as the current resident bar tender. We offer our very own "Good Old Froth-n-Slosh", the stale pale ale that is so light it has the foam on the bottom.
Just grab a mug off the shelf and draw a cold frosty one.

My assistant Igor is usually lurking around if I'm not there.

He never says anything, must have something to with having his tongue cut out by his last boss, that nasty bar tender over at the Angery Orc Bar & Grill.
I'll have him put out a plate of "Lady Fingers" in your honor.

Reminds me we need to have another "Ladies Night" and restock.

Anyway the “Posting Games” are great place to get to know folks and of course the DragonChat is our favorite lounge.


And here’s a soft fluffy towel.  You will find the use for later.

So lurk or play, welcome to the Inn.

We work together and discuss stuff in Q&A. But that is player knowledge, not character knowledge. We then have to comunicate in character in post to make it game knowledge.  We'll guide on this. Say we come to a large lake and need to go around it we can discuss it in Q&A to pick what the party should do. Then in game someone suggests the option and why it is good and the party then agrees and it is so.  This doesn't mean you can't act on your own, it just allows others to toss in their two cents if they feel strongly about an option. But remember if we don't say something in character then the other party members don't know it.


 


BTW I just tried to send Chessicfayth a link to my dropbox so he can access some game handbooks.
If he lets me know it worked I can them share with any of you, I just need your email.

Hey Chess,


What type of characters / classes have you played?


What kind of hero do you feel like?


Seeing that our party is high level you can be dual classed so you could be both a healer and good in a battle.


A barberian cleric could battle and have mystic abilities, including healing. My character from another game is a barberian shaman werebear. You see my avatar of Ody is a werebear.


For our story even the out laying areas would send help, wild tribes would sense the need to put down the rising evil.


PM me your email and I'll send you his character sheet as a starter.


Also folks if you want info send me your email and I'll send you a link to my dropbox where I have some 2.0 handbooks for different classes.


Tann may have that he could share too.

Subject: Ranger


Here is what is says about Rangers for the Introduction of Ranger's handbook.


 


The ranger is one of the most popular character classes in the AD&D® game. A woodsman and tracker, as well as a dangerous fighter, he combines good combat skills with a few extra abilities that give him many options and decisions during play. He boasts the courage and strength of a warrior and the stealth and self-reliance of a thief. He combines the druid's affinity for the outdoors with the devotion and magical aptitude of a priest. He's a hunter, a tracker, and a survivalist. By temperament and by choice, he's a loner, often preferring the company of animals to people. Without question, he's one with nature, sworn to protect the inhabitants of the wilderness and preserve the integrity of the land.


      The ranger's origins can be traced to the time when isolated human settlements were first founded in areas of unclaimed wilderness, or in areas occupied only by savage humanoid tribes. Those who were at first hunters, trappers, and guides were turned by the necessities of survival into canny wilderness warriors; and ultimately into the principle protectors of the scattered settlements of humans and demihumans, which had to fend off countless humanoid raids.
