Topic: Audalis Dreaming QnA
Subject: good points to all

Just let me state for the record here that Tann and I are friends and have been for awhile so there is no animosity in this discussion. We have it often and frankly I don't mind discussing game theory with new people.

I like what RPN suggests as it makes the most sense to me. If you think of this is "realistic" prespectives of a group of adventurers gathered around a table discussing a quest, I don't think "who is the leader" is a question that would come up. What supplies do we need? When are we leaving? are you gonna eat that? - that seems to be more in line with such a gathering.

Take Tann's example "Say we find a cave with 3 Ogres and an Evil Wizard". Well the fighters will charge, with finesse fighters taking the ogres on the sides while the armour and axe warrior comes up the middle and draws attention. The archer moves to one side to fire arrow, the spellcaster steps back to cast a spell and the thief crouches low and to the shadows to look for a exposed back. Do you really need one person to direct you for that?

I have Dm'ed since 1982 (Good Golly that is a long time! Has it really been 30 years! Crap, I'm getting old.) and the idea of a party leader was always the first one abandoned by my players. It usually causes infighting and with online games you have the posting of thoughts of "I don't like this leader" which leads to real life feelings being hurt.

Crow putting Wan over the other members is a natural impulse (they are friends) and good role playing. Same as Bjacki might put Gamard over the others as they are the same race, ditto for Talon and Crow. But you are a team and you need to watch each others back.

Oh, and never make the thief the leader! It is like putting him in charge of the gold!

Anyway, as I said, I bow to the wisdom of the party.

Topic: Audalis Dreaming QnA
Subject: disagree

I would say Cwwllo died because a leadership was established and when Arien stopped posting everyone stopped as well saying they needed see what the leader was doing.

But let's hear from the others? I'm open to suggestion.

Topic: Audalis Dreaming QnA
Subject: leadership

Why must we muck up the waters with leadership? The quest is clear. the ranger tracks, the wizard cast spells, the fighters fight...

Okay peeps - who thinks that leadership has to be established in a d&d game?

Topic: Audalis Dreaming QnA
Subject: No

You didn't know each other when you joined the caravan but you have travelled through the Pass together guarding said caravan and defending it when the Cruniak successfully made it to the destination(Sundel) where the caravan leaders told the city officials of the attack. The mayor has then posted a hefty reward for adventurers to seek out and find the lair of this evil creatures and eliminate them.

So you all will "know" each other in that you have fought together, lived on the road together and relied on each other for the past week. So you will know each other by name, appreciate each other's fighting style and have a general sense of who does what (This Khord is good in battle, the other heals).

Subject: casting call

As a visual aid, I would ask you to send me a picture or the name of an actor/actresses/singer/famous person/sport figure/whomeverelsefromanytimeperiod who would protray your character in the Audalis Dreaming Movie. This helps the players get a idea of the party and what people look like. I realize a lot of characters are not human so some imagination will be required.

Opening post and characters will be up soon, this weekend at latest.

Subject: Answers

1) The guest list is long and extensive. The party takes over the entire building of the Museum of Alliance History. It is huge. The list is the who's who of the alliance verse.

2) You are familiar with Tong but none of operators. Of course, you don't know every person in play right now.

3) "Hi, this is Norman Sellers of Seller's Estates. I can not answer your wave right now so please leave your name, pulse number and date and time, I will call you right back."

4)It is late at night on Osiris at the moment so wait a few hours and then call Decimus. Not sure what you mean by ground support? Lifters? crew? Well armed personal army?

I have tried to go in and edit the post but it won;t let me in, just comes up as blank. I will delete the post and reenter what I can see, then you can re-do it.

And it didn't work either. I will have to turn it over to Olan.

Subject: light source

No one thinks about the light source. just the other day, the cavalier in the party, the only one without darkvision, had a con't light put on a amulet and wore it around his neck. As a DM I said, you realize you are hanging a bright and shiny target around you neck? Yeah, it is only 60 feet was the answer.

Ummm for you to see yes. For the drow archers....

Topic: Audalis Dreaming QnA
Subject: doubles

There is a story behind the Two Gallirians/Tanns

See the image that Tann uses is in fact Gallirian. If you look in the artwork on the website:
Alacrity's Crew

You will see the the three adventurers that I DMed for most of my pre 30's life (Gallirian (Rod), Vanadia (My wife) and Rune (Joe of the I'm too busy to join the inn). The Gallirian that joined the game is in fact the player who played him in those games.

So as to the avatar issue... I don't put much stock into the ownership of avatars and I hope that Tann and Gallirian can sort this out. I would be willing to make a avatar for Tann from the Thanksgiving Mythbreaker. I would also be willing to find something special for Gallirian.
