That aside, Rivalry in its current state is now a party game rather than individual competeting for power and/or conflicting goals, nor is this a tournment/challenge varient. Therefore, any and all PvP will be kept to a minimum with the target of none.
In a way it's too bad; the original concept for Rivalry (lots of PCs competing freely) was pretty clever. It's a shame that it never really worked in practice.

At any rate, a working game is better than none.

To big of a world, to many characters, seemingly no way to actually get a hold of a Mythal. My understanding is that they are not objects, but area effect spells with a personal intelligence guiding them. Then again thats from the novels and not from any sourcebook.

Yeah, I wanted the concept to work, but there are issues that just can't be easily sorted out and make everyone happy at the same time. In the future I may re-open some solo/duo slots when I have more time to manage the game.

Kiara misses her solo days. Now she has to carry around all these slow-poke mortals who need stuff like sleep and food. They can't even teleport at will! That is, like, totally lame

Slaps Crazy Eben HARD!

But the other characters are 'useful' as meatshields, meatshield healers, and things like that!

The Thayans should research a spell that deals 1 points of Charisma damage to target per number of times the target teleported this week. It will allow only a will save for targets who eat and drink regularly.

Kiara eats! Wait...do souls of Cyric worshippers count? And do Cyric worshippers even have souls?

Kiara will do her eloquence thing after her player had some sleep

Edit: If the fact that the Symbul is a chosen of Mystra is not common knowledge, or knowledge that Kiara would have, disregard the part of her rant that has the queen asking Mystra about Arel.

So, should we grab an arcane npc or maybe see if we can pick up a random player to play one?

It's easy to pick up an Arcane caster, NPC or PC, where the party currently is. If the three of you would prefer a PC, I will go recruit one in the recruitment forum; if not, I will prepare an NPC according to your recruitment specification that you can provide to Cazio. The difference would be character level - If it's a PC it'll start at ECL15, whereas an NPC will start a lower level (from ECL10 to 13)to be determined by random availablility chances.

Alternatively, there is an existing character named Yvonne created by Wisp, who I had been unable to establish contact since I re-opened the game, that is a level 15 Barbarian/Wizard/Rage Mage who conveniently worships Mystra and is actually physically in Alagrond when the game was suspended two years ago. If you want an NPC and think this character is suitable, I can allow her to be available at ECL15 as written.

Oh, a rage mage! Neat!

Although probably not capable of teleporting without error

Silly mortals.

Well, what do the other PC-playing type people thing? Hmm...the other players. Yes, that's the word I was looking for.

Wow. Far too convenient to let go to waste. Either that or grab another PC...

...hmm, you know, maybe I could commandeer Yvonne? I dropped out because it was too tough either to run Arel or to create a new character, but this one seems fairly straightforward. Only 4th level spells, sorcerer casting, and mostly uses materials I already recognize. Kind of a dull backstory, but there's room for characterization...

Huh. Let me think about it for a bit and tell me if you're interested in the offer.

If other players are ok with it, and as long as Yvonne does not spontaneously begin some diabolical dark scheme of mass murder and mayham, I can allow the take-over of said character.

However, if by some chance Wisp returns to the game he will have priority to reclaim control of Yvonne from LP.

Well now I'm not interested

Of course. Although, he was active just last month, so I think if he cared he'd be back by now.

Wasn't Wisp a woman? And did you try a PM?

Either way, as long as Yvonne doesn't spontaneously turn homicidal and/or insane, I have no objections to LeadPal playing her.

I don't know the answer to the first question, but the second would be yes; I'm pretty sure Darken's PM was mass-sent.

After some consideration, I don't think I can justify it. Not enough interest in this character, and I've got enough games (possibly too many) already, plus a loose promise to PY to join his game if I ever get a tangible opportunity. So, you can continue in your plan to NPC Yvonne or to find another player, and I will quietly bow out.

Um... again.





G'bye!

As Leadpal decided against playing Yvonne, we still have the issue to resolve whether you are taking Yvonne the Rage Mage as NPC or recruit another PC. So far I've had no concrete answer on that - in the interest of maintaining story momentum, I am going to leave this issue open for 1 more day. Unless someone speaks up against it, I will provide the party with a generic Arcane NPC for now, and go recruit a PC for Arcane support in the longer term.

Time is up. You get a level 13 Wizard for now, and I will go to the recruitment forum to solicit some long term player(s).

I'll have you know that demons totally need to breathe.

For some reason.

I'm not actually sure if that's new in 3.5...oh well, still no need for food or rest. What's a bit of breathing compared to that?

Hmm really? I thought they don't need to breathe... does that mean we can suffocate a pit fiend?

On to more relevant business, there is 1 application of new PC at the moment who is interested in playing a Sorcerer varient (battle sorcerer). Any comments or objections?

Kiara likes charismatic people. As long as they're not more charismatic than her. Since that is pretty unlikely, she's all for it.

Unless "Battle Sorcerer" means an absolutely refusal to pick handy spells like greater teleport.

I mean, she could keep carrying people around in bags and portable holes...but somehow, that seems a bit non-heroic for the hero party...

I have no objections to a Battle Sorcerer; it's maybe a wee bit tough, but far, far from the most powerful thing that's been tossed around in this game.
