D&D: chapter one (in Off-topic)

Coheed February 16 2011 1:06 AM EST

So I used this flash thing to bring my character to life and I'm pretty satisfied with the results My character can be seen here And click this link to Make your Character

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] February 16 2011 1:17 AM EST

I think you want this link.


Coheed February 16 2011 1:34 AM EST

hmmmmm well no Nat...I think I want the link I linked.
But anyway to save your picture from the flash thing you have to press print screen on your keyboard and paste it into ms paint (or similar application) and crop it. Then upload the image to the hobowiki and embed it on your page

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] February 16 2011 3:21 AM EST

Just updated my wiki page with my char, pretty nice little character maker there.

Demigod February 16 2011 9:39 AM EST

"You must be logged in to upload files."

This makes Demi sad.

Tal [G6] February 16 2011 9:43 AM EST

My page also has my image.

Demigod February 16 2011 9:45 AM EST

Ack, it won't let me imbed it since I didn't create the page with the form. I'll fix it when I get home.

QBOddBird February 16 2011 9:45 AM EST

"You must be logged in to upload files."

This makes Demi sad.

Have you considered logging in

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] February 16 2011 9:57 AM EST

to help with forum cleanliness and to head off any complaints i am asking that all of the d&d posts be made in one thread. once that thread auto-closes, another can be created.

with that in mind i am moving this thread to off-topic and giving it a more fitting name for what will likely be the first of many threads. let me know if someone has a better thread title and i will see what i can do. thanks for your compliance! ; )

Tal [G6] February 16 2011 10:01 AM EST

chapter one is already used, it is the story of our characters...

maybe subset 1?

QBOddBird February 16 2011 10:02 AM EST

chapter one is fine

King February 16 2011 10:34 AM EST

Product of my boredom - What every heavy cleric looks like when it gets it's fist set of gear regardless of alignment (Shockingly similar to paladins too!)


AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] February 16 2011 1:52 PM EST

If I let everyone upload without registering, I would have more spam then I already have. I just recently found out that some spammer had gone through the email registration process to post some "auto insurance" spam on my wiki.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] February 16 2011 1:54 PM EST

Where is the option for not big boobed...

Coheed February 16 2011 2:29 PM EST

It's d&d. You have to have big tatas

QBOddBird February 16 2011 7:13 PM EST

Where is the option for not big boobed...

What fool would include such an option

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] February 16 2011 7:18 PM EST

Someone who isn't a guy?

Coheed February 16 2011 7:21 PM EST

Sorry but big boobs win

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] February 16 2011 7:21 PM EST

i think you might have meant:

someone who is not a guy and can ignore the majority of their intended target market. ; )

QBOddBird February 18 2011 1:18 AM EST

Probably canceling tomorrow until next week as I have company over. I'll post with a definite tomorrow.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] February 18 2011 1:44 AM EST

Awwwww T_T And when I finally have a chance to play.

Gunny Pew Pew [Red Permanent Assurance] February 18 2011 1:49 AM EST

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] February 18 2011 2:13 AM EST

Phoenix [The Forgehood] February 18 2011 7:36 AM EST

I think darth vader does it best...

Coheed February 23 2011 7:56 PM EST

So were on for this Friday right

QBOddBird February 23 2011 11:09 PM EST


Demigod February 25 2011 2:31 PM EST

8pm EST?

QBOddBird February 25 2011 7:12 PM EST

8pm EST?

Probably going to start closer to 8:30-ish EST, but yeah, hopefully right around that time. :)

QBOddBird February 25 2011 11:35 PM EST

OK, so on days like today, if Mumble doesn't work then we cannot do a session. I cannot multi-task and type fast enough to respond to everyone in a 12 man party, much less if we're splitting up into side-quests and such (which I'm not trying to discourage, it is just too difficult to play management with it all with text.)

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] February 25 2011 11:45 PM EST

Makes sense, things would've worked out much nicer if we had mumble working like our first session. So whats the deal with this session, are we kind of just messing around and not really going anywhere with it?

Phoenix [The Forgehood] February 26 2011 12:26 AM EST

perhaps skype in case mumble doesn't work again?

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] February 26 2011 12:30 AM EST

Can we get a big group on skype?

QBOddBird February 26 2011 12:40 AM EST

I really like the idea mentioned today of someone assisting me with the group, particularly with combat. It would work out very nicely. Post here if you are interested in helping me out with that, including anyone who isn't currently involved with the D&D campaign who might want to come in and help. :]

Phoenix [The Forgehood] February 26 2011 12:44 AM EST

The biggest group I've ever been in was 8 people, so I wouldn't know about more, but I think it should work.

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] February 26 2011 1:01 AM EST

To be fair OB, part of the idea of me not going into the combat was so i could help if needed.

Demigod February 26 2011 1:33 AM EST

I'm not buying that, Nayab. You stayed in the house so you could cast charm spells on the fisherman's promiscuous wife. Admit it.

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] February 26 2011 1:38 AM EST

Im a paladin. I stayed up there, asked some questions about the rat problem, then had a look at the local sewer system.

BadFish February 26 2011 1:39 AM EST

I'll do whatever I can to assist you OB- I would really like to see us able to fit more into a session.

Admiralkiller February 26 2011 2:17 AM EST

I would be glad to help, just need a little help tp figure out what I am doing. If you like I would be glad to help after all My character is so simple to run. I have lots of spare time during sessions to help. Especially if it enables us to accomplish more.

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] February 26 2011 3:28 AM EST

Mumble appeared to be working when I just tried it now without doing anything special. Are you sure it wasn't working?

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] February 26 2011 4:12 AM EST

Our speech was exceptionally choppy.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] February 26 2011 11:53 AM EST

That's an understatement. Our speech sounded like weird horrible techno-music.

QBOddBird February 26 2011 12:25 PM EST

Verifex, everyone's speech was horribly choppy. I turned my quality all the way to the lowest settings in order to be understood, and eventually just dropped Mumble altogether anyway. I'm not sure what was up, but it was definitely not working well last night.

Phoenix [The Forgehood] February 26 2011 11:50 PM EST

It turns out that skype has a 25 person maximum if people wanna try that.
Btw: It turns out that instead of PTT, you can just set a hot key to mute/unmute your mic.

iBananco [Blue Army] February 27 2011 1:30 AM EST

Skype is fine for large groups.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] February 27 2011 1:54 AM EST

Skype does seem like it would be the very best option for us.

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] February 27 2011 3:52 AM EST

I am guessing that my roommates must have been streaming some show or something.

Gunny Pew Pew [Red Permanent Assurance] March 3 2011 5:19 PM EST


As long as OB can be heard, without wasting an hour getting all set, this should not be an issue. We'll try mumble first on friday.

Admiralkiller March 3 2011 8:25 PM EST

We still on for tomorrow? Same time?

QBOddBird March 4 2011 12:34 AM EST

Possibly, depending on the gf, she has to leave for drill on saturday so friday may be X'd

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] March 4 2011 12:36 AM EST

Army drill?

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] March 4 2011 12:44 AM EST

Just wondering, because I actually have drill myself on Saturday and Sunday this weekend. It should be my last one though. After that I just need to get the paperwork setup and I'm done!

Demigod March 4 2011 1:25 AM EST

QBOddBird - Possibly, depending on the gf, she has to leave for drill on saturday

Natasha' - I actually have drill myself on Saturday

Well, Scooby, we solved that mystery. You two make a lovely couple.

Gunny Pew Pew [Red Permanent Assurance] March 4 2011 1:29 AM EST

Both are beyond Nair bathtub treatments.

BadFish March 4 2011 1:31 AM EST

fridays now have a 50% success rate. Is there any other day we can do this, because at this rate it will take months upon months to finish this campaign. Not complaining per say, just trying to amend the situation.

QBOddBird March 4 2011 1:34 AM EST

Easy killer, a short run of bad luck doesn't mean anything. It's not a problem that needs fixing.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] March 4 2011 1:45 AM EST

I protest, you most certainly need fixing

Phoenix [The Forgehood] March 4 2011 11:52 AM EST

You'll tell us whether we're actually having D&D or not before 8 this time, instead of leaving us wondering, right OB?

Admiralkiller March 4 2011 12:14 PM EST

Appears like all of us have committed to allotted time except you OB.

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] March 4 2011 1:08 PM EST

Mumble is working currently, if it is not, someone just needs to send me a quick email/message on gmail and I'll be available to fix it in a flash.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] March 4 2011 1:28 PM EST

Seriously let us know asap so I know whether or not I can pass out early tonight.

QBOddBird March 4 2011 2:14 PM EST

Appears like all of us have committed to allotted time except you OB.

Feel free to find a different DM if it bugs you that I do sometimes have IRL priorities

Seriously let us know asap so I know whether or not I can pass out early tonight.

Will do, texting her now to find out what the plan is.

Admiralkiller March 4 2011 3:34 PM EST

Hey OB. I was not trying to come off rude earlier. I was just trying to let you know there are 10+ people you are making sad when you miss. I know RL is a priority but if there was a better time for you that works weekly most of us I am sure would be glad to accommodate. Even making alternate arrangements maybe with someone else who can DM for a day in your place.

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] March 4 2011 3:42 PM EST

If that session I was there for partially was any indication, you're a pretty good DM OB, so people just want more! :)

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] March 4 2011 3:49 PM EST

I personally don't really have a problem with it, I know RL stuff comes first. Today is just one of those days where I didn't sleep and I'm exhausted, that's pretty much the reason why I wanna know if its happening or not. If we're still on then I'll soldier through it, if not then I'm going to be sleeping like a baby quicker then you can say "nap time"

QBOddBird March 4 2011 4:18 PM EST

I Have been informed that tonight is circus night. Sorry :(

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] March 4 2011 6:04 PM EST

Maybe next week then.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] March 4 2011 7:57 PM EST

Dear OB,

You sir are a tease.


AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] March 4 2011 7:58 PM EST

This time its alright with me because I happen to have drill this weekend.

Gunny Pew Pew [Red Permanent Assurance] March 4 2011 8:09 PM EST

QBOddBird March 4 2011 11:42 PM EST

Dear novice,

..but you love it when i tease you <3


QBOddBird March 5 2011 11:16 AM EST

Makeup session for Gun and Novice: Today at the end of XP time

Since you guys didn't get much time during the regular session last week, we need you to get caught up to the same timeframe as the regular group.

Demigod March 5 2011 3:04 PM EST

Makeup session for Gun and Novice

Be careful with the typos. You wrote "up" when you clearly meant "out."

QBOddBird March 5 2011 3:05 PM EST

hey, I'm not telling you guys how to roleplay, you do what you want

could use the scene for an adult novel and make some money

Gunny Pew Pew [Red Permanent Assurance] March 9 2011 10:28 PM EST

Preemptive Strike!

Admiralkiller March 9 2011 11:02 PM EST

I have to watch niece Friday but I should be able to play and pay attention when needed.

Demigod March 9 2011 11:15 PM EST

Closets exist for a reason. Think of it as easy babysitting.

Admiralkiller March 9 2011 11:23 PM EST


AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] March 9 2011 11:24 PM EST

Demi is saying he wants to be locked in a closet for a long time.

QBOddBird March 9 2011 11:31 PM EST

And He wants you to open the door when he comes out.

Admiralkiller March 9 2011 11:33 PM EST

So I am going to stay away from any closets then.

Demigod March 9 2011 11:51 PM EST

What if I'm wearing a nice chiffon nightie? Eventually you'd forget I was there and open the closet. It'd be like Christmas morning, only the package would be crammed into a thong.

Admiralkiller March 9 2011 11:54 PM EST

Is this the opening to a up and coming horror film?

Gunny Pew Pew [Red Permanent Assurance] March 10 2011 1:45 AM EST

Entitled: Red Riding Hood

Phoenix [The Forgehood] March 11 2011 2:23 PM EST

I'm assuming DnD's on for the regular time?

QBOddBird March 11 2011 6:41 PM EST

It is.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] March 11 2011 6:48 PM EST

I may or may not be able to make it tonight. So if I'm not on, assume something came up.

QBOddBird March 11 2011 8:33 PM EST

so far looks like we are missing novice, King has quit, missing Omega...

QBOddBird March 12 2011 12:37 AM EST

Demigod March 13 2011 1:43 AM EST

For those who missed it, here's the recap:

Mumble worked; the players cheered. We picked up with the group in the rat-infested basement and broke a larger hole where the vermin where coming in. We entered the tunnel to find a magical rat-god-thing that quickly spawned a seemingly endless number of rats via mitosis. Despite quickly and easily slaying the main rat, the magical mitosis continued. However, it produced dead rats showing the same wounds as the primary one. The character who received the magical ring from a prior quest managed to properly dispose of the mess, ending the problem once and for all. Happy with the victory, we headed to the market and shops to pick up items and equipments.

However, the DM had other plans and spent the next thirty minutes screaming on the phone, leaving the players to misbehave. Nat learned something about helicopters while Xeno got in touch with his inner hippy.

Upon the DM's return, string was purchased for a bow, Nayab and I commissioned shields, and other people may or may not have done other things.

Thus ends my half-assed recap.

Gunny Pew Pew [Red Permanent Assurance] March 13 2011 4:18 AM EDT

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] March 18 2011 6:05 AM EDT

Will D&D be going ahead this week?

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] March 18 2011 8:46 AM EDT

So Demi finally came out out of the closet?

QBOddBird March 18 2011 10:17 AM EDT

Yeah D&D is going ahead this week

Admiralkiller March 18 2011 1:19 PM EDT

/me wonders where the giant YESSSSSSSSSSSSS! pics are

Demigod March 18 2011 1:31 PM EDT

I did a search for "Yes!" pics and found this. It's not what I was looking for...


AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] March 18 2011 5:39 PM EDT

Mumble is currently offline, I will put it back online tonight, don't worry! :)

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] March 18 2011 5:40 PM EDT

Well, we can always just try out skype if its not up.

Admiralkiller March 18 2011 6:35 PM EDT

I am getting excited.

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] March 18 2011 7:03 PM EDT

When do you guys do this?

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] March 18 2011 7:26 PM EDT

generally we try to start at 8pm, wait a bit for everyone to get online then get started.

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] March 18 2011 8:15 PM EDT

I find it odd you do it on a Friday night... It's Friday? Don't you have something else to do? Like this:


Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] March 18 2011 8:20 PM EDT

^ my ears are bleeding now

BadFish March 18 2011 11:53 PM EDT

I made it 54 seconds in... dear god!

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] March 19 2011 12:04 AM EDT

I made it through the whole song, not hard at all.

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] March 19 2011 12:27 AM EDT

Muting it is cheating Nat :P

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] March 19 2011 12:28 AM EDT

I didn't have it on mute. I listened to it quite clearly.
