How do you intend to devide the game into more "chapters" then it is in now, without ruining the flow of the game?

There is a "Split Thread" function. I figure I can split the large thread at any point where it seems appropriate. I can also edit the first post in any thread to include a summary or transition from the previous thread.

I'm not planning on making 5,000 chapters but there are definitely a few points that seem logical.

You missed my point. I know about the split thread funtion, I was asking how you were going to determin where to slit them up.

Holy crap! Who created that subforum so quickly? Thanks, to whoever that was .

At any rate, I planned on just breaking things where it seemed logical to me, but if you have any ideas I'd be glad to here them. And don't tell me to combine all the game threads into one gigantic thread .

There. I figured it's been a while since I gave you guys something sufficiently big to chew on. So enjoy yet more fallen paladin "woe is me" junk!

We know he's capable of the former, but the latter? I'm not so sure about that one

Yes, well, next time spend a few points on intelligence .

The problem is the subadventure threads. I could split up the main thread so that things sort of fall in order, but I kind of like the concurrent timeline setup.

Any ideas?

Oh, and while I'm housecleaning we ought to decide about our expendables thread. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but it's pretty much unused. Should I just ditch it?

Yes.

With the rate that this game goes at, there is no real rush to keep track of these things. Plus we all know I'll just plain ignore it if I want to :p

"What know becomes of this fellowship? Without itches and Maeko hope is lost.

The Fellowship of the Mud stands upon the edge of a knife. Stray but a little and it will fail, to the the ruin of all. Yet hope remains, while the company is true."

Yeah, I just slapped some names on them. I'm open to better names. I also just broke stuff where it seemed appropriate, but if anyone has better ideas let me know.

I like the Fellowship of Mud.

If only because I coined it

the only worry I have about it is that it is a little light hearted for the chapter that contains all the horror elements Gral & Cad were using.

Yes, and Nicos will be not very pleased that someone else snuck off to have fun, leaving him to do the work.

It's usualy the other way around!

Okay, one final decision to make regarding my impromptu reorg. I'm really disliking the way that the first (now locked) OOC thread sits right in the middle of the old chapters.

There are two ways to fix this annoying (at least to me) situation. Solution #1 is to create another forum for junk that isn't really game stuff but that we don't want to delete. Solution #2 is to merge the OOC threads and just have one OOC that goes on forever.

Preferences?

Right...

I'm always disappointed by the length of my posts. Before you start with the tomato throwing, I merely mean when I'm typing in the little field, the paragraphs always feel large. Yet when I finally post, I find the lines to be short on the comparatively wide post. Ah well, there are two solutions.

1. Have my browser magnify all text by 300%.

2. Write EVEN MORE.

Hmm...

My vote's for #2. I like reading your long posts; I'm trying to rival them with my own postings.

On a different subject, what're my chances of convincing you to join my game? We lost three players (thanks, Itches), and I was looking forward to an 8-PC game.
