    "I'm with Pradize," Yrisz whispers looking around at with fatigued yet wide eyes, "lets bypass this camp and the others if we can manage it." "Lady Bieiriz always told me to never trouble the trouble until the trouble troubled me. The funny thing is that she never seemed to follow that rule...

    Hi all, My mom who currently lives in Austria made a quick rush over to stay with me and my various sisters/nieces for a week, I've been so busy that I haven't even been able to post that I wouldn't be posting. But I just said goodbye to her, so lets see what catching up we have to do... As for...

    I reached out to Farcaster yesterday. I apologize for the downtime. It's just as frustrating for me. I hope to have a fix shortly.

    you know, i think we would get "royally" thumped by her Highness if we retreated now without her even getting to fight. (pun intended) I know some of us are low on spells, but is anyone actually low on hit points or wounded in some fashion?

    I wonder if "days" means calendrical orientation of some kind. Well, my two are ready to move on and have no particular objection if someone wants to take it with us. When we are not in such an unknown location, then perhaps we could research it more. Briefly wonder if that pedestal is mobile -...

    As I will be starting my EMT class next Tuesday, I will need to wait until after it is done before trying to provide items that could be used for this.

    The only reason I had thought about resting is that we really haven't all night (right?) and I thought that might have an effect on us, though even then, if it wasn't great I was prepared to ignore it. Second, once we disembark our suspect small craft Yrisz will re-don her armor. She'll also be...

Are we going to rest again...

    Nah, we should save that, unless we are towards the end of a given exploration period and haven't used it yet. If not, we'll just rely on the augury and danger sense. Perhaps a study via detect magic and detect evil, then kiri it. ^^

    Hey FC. What's going on?

    Hi Farcaster, just wanted to say this is a very well established site and I'm very impressed. I also thank you because this site will help me find players in my area!
  3. View Conversation
    Farcaster, please forgive me for posting this here, but I've tried PMing you several times recently and was never answered any of them, so maybe my account won't send PM's?

    I'm sorry if I've annoyed you in any way, I know I've screwed up and such, but I hope you understand I've genuinely tried to be good, it was never my intention to cause any harm.

    I've patiently waited out my infraction time, but when I tried to join the chat (for a game a friend of mine scheduled, Juno-Ome to be specific) it says I'm still banned.

    I agree PM's would be a better place to discuss this, so please PM me a response. Again, I'm sorry, but I have no where else to turn.

The Gatekeeper Campaign Log

by Farcaster on 10-14-2011 at 07:14 PM
I kicked off a new campaign about a year and a half ago called "The Gatekeeper," and I have had the extremely good fortune of having a published WotC designer and author at the table with us, Mr. Erik Scott de Bie. Erik, I have come to find out, is a tenacious writer. In the first few weeks of our game, he actually sent me more post game followup than all my players combined have sent me in the following year.

So, I asked him if he'd focus that insatiable pen of his towards

The Year of Blue Fire: Gearing Up

by Farcaster on 12-13-2010 at 02:52 PM
So, our first game for the Year of Blue Fire campaign is coming up this Friday. Iíve got the basic concept together for the first adventure, but I still need to sit down and stat out potential encounters and spend some time jotting down key locations and information. I usually work well under pressure and it is a first level game, so Iím not too worried about it.

Iíve decided to try out logging the campaign on Obsidian Portal. I created a campaign there last night. So far, Iíve only

The Year of Blue Fire - Campaign Background

by Farcaster on 11-22-2010 at 04:14 PM
I am starting up another campaign soon. I may be a little crazy for trying to run two games simulateously and "assist-DM" in a third, but I just couldn't resist when my buddy asked me to run a game for a group he was putting together.

Unlike most games I have run in the past, I'm not coming to the table with a campaign idea already in hand. Instead, I am working with the players to create their backgrounds and then I am going to build the campaign organically from their

Have you checked out d20Pro?

by Farcaster on 04-22-2010 at 03:58 PM
d20pro pushed out an update today. Version 2.1 is out of beta and available for download.

You know, I recently ran a 4th edition demo game using d20pro. It's actually a pretty sweet little app for running remote games, and even for using as a digital replacement for your battlemat at your regular face-to-face games as well. It was designed specifically for the d20 OGL ruleset and has a set of plugins to integrate nicely with Pathfinder. There are also patches for 4th edition, and

Why I'm Starting to Consider the iPad...

by Farcaster on 03-01-2010 at 11:00 AM
A few short weeks ago when the iPad was first announced, I was not among the throng of excited Apple groupies who had already made up their minds before Steve Jobs took one step onto the podium that I would be buying this device no matter what it did. I've never quite understood the mentality of if it has XYZ sticker, I simply must have it, and that extends to the iWhatever-the-Hell-They-Come-Up-with-Next. I was a late adopter to the iPod, simply because I never wanted to spend
