Scarred South LFR: The Iriaebor Gambit

As I don't think everyone is high enough to play the rest of the TYMA series (next one is 7–10) and don't have anything else for you in the south for now, I'm thinking I'll just send you incongruously back to ELTU4-2 (1–10) for the Dusk Talons. I think Grr may make it to his third milestone and work off his death penalty before he dies again; Lucan may not be so lucky. I also talked to a lot of people who hadn't made it to the Sunday game before, so it would be really good if we can get a second DM again. Maybe Big Red is feeling better, or Paul can make it.

Important: I will be limiting the maximum (but not minimum) table sizes strictly as in the campaign rules, as in my experience, having to fight just to be heard and wait for everyone to argue and to take turns is not fun. This means that, although people who don't sign up will be accommodated as possible, they will be the most likely to miss out on playing altogether.

I understand that this is harsh. I've thought of two ways you can avoid this danger (other than being quicker than anyone else):

First, you can be ready to recruit some of the players for an overflow table of another game. Although you can try to convince someone else to do so, this is likely to be most successful if you offer to DM it. I would go so far to advise that most everyone has an obscure adventure prepared to run for emergencies. We can talk about what is obscure enough that no one has played it or read it. For instance, Rod ran ADAP4-2 "Stick in the Mud" (1–5) after having it ready for some months, and I think Big Red is familiar with AGLA1-1 "Lost Temple of the Fey Gods" (1–4) and CALI3-1 "Menace of Memnon" (1–10), but has not been in the best health lately. Depending on who shows up each time, hopefully neither will have to judge all the time. If we have to split and don't have four players for each table, I suggest the DM or one of the faster players using a simple pregen to fill it out.

Second, you can volunteer your time to organize some of these meetups yourself, so we have to listen to your rules!

Priority will go to those who post actual comments here stating their ability to participate (preferably with some idea of what levels and types of characters you have available). Almost no one is bothering to use the Warhorn stuff.

    Despite the fickleness of fey, Bunny, Ale, Draken, Gaspray, and Traventine all managed to survive and rescue the caravan. They (or others) may continue on:

    Hey, I hate to be a pain and cancel last minute, but I'm sick as hell. Next time.

      No problem. Thanks for the communication

    All right, we have a Ben now, but everyone else for whom I had contact information seems to be too busy. Perhaps we will be able to fit it in one table.

    I talked to Steven, and he said he wouldn't be able to make it after all, but several other people may.

    Marleon has apparently changed his RSVP to a "no." I've just talked to some other people who are interested in being there on Sunday, so hopefully Big Red or someone else will be able to DM something.

    I've also heard confirmation separately for The_Travisty (human wizard or tiefling paladin) and his dad (half-elf cleric). I've asked them to think about whether they'll want to start off at 1st level or are ready for 5th, as the rest of you can handle either.

      Until they join the Meetup group, I'll just list them as my guests for counting purposes. Of course, I only appear to be able to bring two, so that go any further.

    Apparently Grady and Josh are now working Sundays for the moment, but I still suspect we're going to get two tables. I'll try to help the other people to find this Meetup group on Wednesday. If Marleon or Big Red would have something ready to DM, that would be very helpful.

      I wasn't there, so hopefully others can tell you themselves. Why, did you want to run something that was run there?

      August 26, 2013

    • Marleon

      I ran "edge of justice" twice there. So it would be easy to prep. I recognize at least one player who probably doesn't want to play it a third time.

    Planning on bringing in the Warlock again. See you there.

    August 23, 2013

    • archlords

      A ranged striker of the elemental-pact variety, if memory serves. He should also still be short of 6th level unless you've been cheating on me.

  • Marleon

    In potential character discussion what information would be best to provide?

    August 23, 2013

    • Marleon

      I am the Marleon you know. My level 8 defender(paladin) is my most invested in the Eltu region. But if she won't work I do have plenty of other heroic characters to choose from.

      August 23, 2013

    • archlords

      I don't expect we'll have anyone below 5th.

      August 24, 2013

  • archlords

    Big Red is also here. He's probably played more LFR than anyone else in this meetup, so he's got all sorts of characters in various level ranges, and he judges some, too.

    Flame On, People!

      Right, it's been a while for Ronan.

      August 19, 2013

    • archlords

      Did you play the eladrin or the deva in ELTU4-1? If it was Ronan and he's still down at 3rd or so, it may be more convenient just to jump in with the Dusk Talons again.

      OK, have fun. Hopefully Big Red can cover if we have a second table.

      August 21, 2013

  • archlords

    As noted above, I've settled on ELTU4-2, on which I suggest you don't play up. I don't know if we'll try for the full series (as ELTU4-4 is a double-round adventure, which we may be able to fit into a Sunday afternoon if we truck it), but if we do, it'd be great power-leveling for the rare person who can make all four. I'm relatively sure that this is the one where we ran ELTU4-1, which means that it was probably Abdemona D'Estroya, Raven Luck, Morgaine Zaramovic, Grr, Therod, and Z3AL0T.

    http://www.meetup.com/dnd-192/events/100754592/

    Of course, you (particularly Big Red) may have characters who have played parts (but not all) of the series elsewhere already. Also, when we have more than one table, the second one can give you the ones you've missed, but probably only if you tell the DM which ones beforehand, of course.

    August 19, 2013

  • archlords

    Something else I belatedly added: suggestions for character levels and types. I want to have some idea of who's going to play what so I can decide on that (although I don't have any storyline nor goals except for Grr and Z3AL0T MKI).
