well

If you note, I was the person that wrote the "postive" review of both the Basic edition and Starter kit. 

Thing is, I have not played tabletop D&D since 2014 when the party of friends I had refused to listen to my pleas that I could not handle creating huge campaigns with multiple stories and being a father of a autistic child at the same time. I quit D&D at the time because I felt I had no option and the friends,  some since high school, other since university, all abandoned me.

Things are better now with Will, and I want to game again. I found a roup threough Meetup and we shall see how it goes, but these are a wide range of age people so they are mopstly 5e players. Some are so young they don;t even know what Tomb of Horrors is.

So I am trying new things. I guess that does call for Bromern's cry of "who are you and what have you done with Roger?" I do not know how this will go. But if I don't try, I end up staying at home, reading rule systems and wishing I could play.

I like 5e so far. There is a lot of merit to the rules taht are more 2e and 3e than anything else. Some sections are very poorly written though so if you are a 5e player (Ody and Tann) I may ask you questions as to how your group figured out a section.

By Rocinante will continue to be my love.

BTW - I am working on a system to incoprate an "Altered Carbon Game" via the cortex rules. As well, Green Ronin is supposedly bringing out a RPG for "The Expanse" in which I am very interested.

Sometimes friends suck...

Well, more power to you, then! I'll be interested in seeing how it works out.

I'm making my first foray into the realm of 5e, myself, right here at the Inn. Lady Dark has fired up her Ghostwood Groves under the 5e rules and I'm jumping in on that one. Been reading the PHB and, I gotta say, I'm not hating the system, so far. Bit of a learning curve, I guess... but not too steep. We'll see how it goes.

editor

My major quibble with 5e is it needed a better editor. Some sections I have read 4-5 times and still do not understand what they mean.

5e is ok but I still prefer 2e

Though my first character, my Elf Ranger, did die last session. lol

My new character is his Elf Ranger/Rogue brother who has been searching for him and followed his trail through the mist also.  We so needed a actual thief  lol

having trouble

I know I am late for the next post but I am having trouble figuring out a way to move the story along without completely railroading the party. The NPC Doctor is a bit of an issue in the adventure.

Same here

Lots of that "do this yearly" business going on for me at work, this week... resume updates, employee evaluations, training, blahblahblah... (plus the wife has been on Spring break from school)... I'm not fussing about a tiny delay.

 

That said, Roger, if there's anything I can do to help (NPC the doc for you in this case or whatever), just let me know.

Clearification......

I know that Adelei Niska is one of Asher's enemies but Hewlett Stewert was the Captian of the crew Asher just met.  You said Stewert and Niska had folks whipped. Was that a typo? I didn't think Asher knew Stewert from his past?

My Apologies Roger

For my absense from the Inn. During the week after Easter I started to get sick which took a bad turn during that next week thus leaving me bed ridden for most of this month. Though I am not near 100% I do plan to try and keep up with my posts in this game. Please know I will try my best.

Sorry.....

Sorry it took a week to finally get it together enough to work the post.

Should have done it last Sunday morning while it was quiet around here.

Between work and home the week just got away from me.

Seems I'd sit and read some stuff on FB and the next thing it seemed the evening was gone.

Had board meeting at our plant during the week and our ISO management audit.

Sooooo....went for the POV rewrite. Nothing like stealing Roger's words and then editing.

I steal Roger's words all the time. Shamelessly.

apologies

So I have been out for a month. Sorry, truly sorry to neglect this thread. A number of things have conspired against me.
 
May has been a really busy month for me with work and William. On top of that , I got involved with a 5e D&D group that really started to feed into my time as well. I had to start saying no to the requests for help and DMing. Furthermore, i have got myself in a situation in Rocinante where I am essentially playing with myself and I hate that. I have been trying to find a way out of it without a major rewrite of the story (again). Losing Willow really screwed up this adventure becasue the Chloe plotline and the Perceival plotline were going to inersect and now .... Well now I am posting for my own storyline which is going nowhere.
 
Anyway, I will figure this out and I have no D&D, family, work or school events planned for this week.
