Sorry to hear you are bogged down. Did you put together any sheets for the three NPC's? If you did could you send them to me. I may be able to find a fill in DM amoung some friends here or Graven and I could just continue each of us DMing alternating encounters. Could be a whole new game form. Would you mind if we continued the game?
I kind of like the thought of revolving DM's. Sort of like the three word posting game only in storey. Could have rule #1 : No TPK setups. Well just a thought. I'll e-mail you too just in case you don't get back here soon.
