Campaign Revisited

Well, yesterday's post landed with a sort of dull thud. I hope today's does better.

It is time, I think, for me to begin my online campaign again, which I suspended five months ago. I have lost track of Anshelm and Tiberius, but if you're out there you'll very welcome to continue your characters. Delfig and Kazimir, I'm well aware of where you both are. We can pick up where you left off, whenever you're ready. Just start me off with a 'yes' on this post and we'll get going.

There are going to be a few changes. First off, I won't be running the campaign on this blog. It was too distracting from my other posts, and I know many readers won't care what's going on with the campaign. So I am moving the campaign to a new blog, which can be found at www.taoscampaign.blogspot.com. The link will be added to the blogroll of this blog.

Second, I'm not limiting the number of people who play (though the more people, the less updates there will be - sorry), nor am I going to insist that people play in the campaign that is already in progress.

Those who want to play should email me at alexiss1@telus.net. All rolls that you make will be trusted unless I have reason to think otherwise (you're just too lucky). Until I get too overloaded with players, you can ask to join campaigns already in progress, or you can start your own, anywhere within the regions I've designed. Those regions include Pakistan, Iran, the Middle East, Arabia, Greece, Eastern Europe, Scandinavia, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Russia west of the Urals and Siberia west of the Yenisey River.

We will roll your character, and then I will add posts to the campaign blog for you to 'run' on. Each campaign will have a unique label, so that by searching for a specific label you can get rid of all the other posts attached to other campaigns. I'm hoping that works.

If you feel you haven't very much time, but you are interested, under these conditions you can play as little or as much as you like ... I will try to keep a campaign going as fast as my time will allow.

This is still an experimental idea, so changes may still have to be applied once campaigns are started, but we all know that's part of the game. So let me know if you're interested.

I've been quietly lurking for the past couple of months. But, yes, I'm still interested in the campaign.

Yes, please. Adding the campaign blog to my reader now.

Chgowiz, Joseph.

Last I remember, the two of you had met at the Pig Tavern, and Delfig had given Tiberius 75 of the 300 g.p. he’d gotten from the Paladin Hornung. Hornung had asked that Delfig give the small pendant to Jan the Cleric so it could be returned to someone named Serafina ... that Delfig might be the envoy that returned it.

The two of you were waiting for Anshelm and Delfig to return after their day. It is Thursday, May 8, 1650.

Anything very important that I forgot?

Alexis said...

Apparently yes, I missed my entire last post before suspending. I will pick up the campaign there and post on the new blog. Only one thing I need to know. Tiberius, Delfig ... do you intend to continue campaigning together? I want to make no assumptions.

Since I was injured (down to 3 out of 13), I was intending on resting for a week. Here's the last entry I can find from this post:

Delfig would have rested for the week and at some point towards the end of the week, inquired as to what work might be available for him via the Merchant's Guid and Hornung's recommendation. Is there a cost to being bonded?

IIRC, your rules were that no strenuous activity (bedrest) for healing to occur daily. If that's the case, then I'm going to rest/recuperate, then investigate contacting Jan.

Chgowiz said...

I'd like to discuss that with Tiberius over there?

Alexis said...

Good enough. I'm going to initiate the first post over there, and any further comments can be made there.
