Scarred South LFR: Minutes to Midnight

ELTU4-3 (1–10). I was thinking I might be able to run you the double-length fourth chapter in a marathon session one Sunday, but judging by that last one, maybe not. Let's just get Z3AL0T up to the point where he can survive AL 8 My Realms. This campaign won't last forever, and I at least want to get you guys to my AL 12 stuff while I can.

There has also been some talk of getting some more weekday stuff in, as Grr is the only other character for whom I have been given any background, story connection, or future goals.  I'm not working Fridays anymore for the moment, so Thursday or Friday night would be good.  But Card Advantage closes too early for most of us on Thursdays and has muchos events going on on Fridays, and apparently none of us can host, so we'd have to go to Bellevue or get online gaming set up.

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. Paul and Marleon are also known DMs. 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.

    Incidentally, according to my notes, Gil and Mike were there for ELTU4-1 "Born by Fiends," and I believe they've been playing the same characters throughout. As Josh and Rod had to miss ELTU4-3, I think those are the only two who played all four when I ran them. If you've played some with the same characters elsewhere, be sure to find your certification to make sure.

    Justiciar D'Estroya, Luckwarder Luck, Saville, and Dunstan Ironforge managed to root out one of the main traitors. They now have bigger fish to fry:

    We've lost a couple, but Gil is here with his divine striker 7 (Bahamut/Order of Torm).

    the character I have available is a 3rd level halfling rogue but I'll draw up a 6th level to keep par with archlord's fire mage

      Officially, you're supposed to start at 5th or 8th, but that's mostly just an artifact of earlier systems. I don't go around auditing people on that.

    Rod's fire mage and Josh's warden should be reaching 6th level after one more, I think.

    All three so far are appropriately Dusk Talons.
