Seeing as everyone seems to be in this country for the next several weeks (something which cant be said about my other campaigns), and based on what people have been saying when i've seen them, i believe it may be time for Newadventures to reconvene.

When is everyone free?
Do you have enough stuff cass?

If you know that there is someone who is not going to check this board, please send them an sms and tell them to please, especially because this board has been recently in a state of disuse.

Things are starting to get hectic over the next few months, what with election campaigns, idol, uni, etc ...

There are a few points that need to be addressed for any sessions we might have, so that we can get the most we can out of them:

1) Idle banter needs to be cut down a fair bit, so we can speed up the sessions and keep them moving. I think that chatter generally INCREASES boredom, rather than being a byproduct of it, because it stops the actual playing from going further.

2) Everyone needs to come to a consensus on party actions just a little quicker. Occasionally it's very frustrating, the length of time it can take to choose a course of action. This also applies to each player taking their turn in combat. I don't want to have to be strict on this, so please try and reign this in a little. Just remember, in a real situation, you often have to make decisions on the fly, try and capture that a little more in RP.

3) Some people are slightly lacking in the actual role playing aspect. Sooner, rather than later, I plan to have big blocks where there is more talking and interacting in character as opposed to rolling dice to hit the big bad, so a bit of character is needed. This is NOT saying that a character whose primary motivation is to bash things is a BAD character, but you will have to work out what your character would do if they were forced into a position where that was not the option.

4) New policy (and this concerns me more than anyone else, I'm just letting you all know). If we're having a session, the only ones there will be the party, Phil and myself. There will be no observers, no random extras, or anything like that, unless there's a very good reason. It just opens up too many avenues for distraction. So if, for some bizarre reason, you feel like bringing someone along, please don't.

5) Give me feedback! If you have anything you like / dislike, want more / less of, or anything related to the campaign, let me know and I'll work on it. This is the first time I've DMed a campaign, so I'm a n00b as well. I'm not above getting criticism (preferably constructive).


That said, I'm really enjoying this campaign, so hopefully we'll be able to get back into it before too long.

Alright, I'm going to start an availability thing
I'm guessing weekends are the only option, at least until the end of the semester

8th May - Yes
9th May - No

The following weekend, if we decide to do it by tomorrow, I can get the day(s) off work. All the weekends after that I can easily get off work as long as I can give a week and a half notice to work(otherwise, I can't do the days I can rostered on for)

Current Mood: exhausted exhausted

Hey again guys,

Just wondering if we are planning to have another session before the end of the uni session.
And as incentive, I've got some copies of Return of the King DVD (great quality) to give to you guys. Just give us a blank dvd and it's yours. :D

I was just wondering when abouts do you guys think we'll have our next session. It's just if I have enough notice I can work around the time (get the day off work and the like)
Thanks,

It has been too long, we must have another session, and soon.

Please post what times would be good for you for a session of New Adventures in the not-too-distant future.

A note, but not a demand. I would prefer it if our sessions were post-lunch jobs, IE starting at around 2 - 3pm and going until no later than 9ish. I guess Sunday would be my preferred day as well.

But we must play again! Now that you have all had a stab at the basics, it's time to throw you in to the deep end!

this community's paid account is going to expire in a few days. Anyone wanna pitch in to keep it paid, or shall we let it go down to free?
