Okay, I'm taking a breather.
I got all the new characters started, with backgrounds. Some are selecting spells, some sage abilities, some weapons, some are waiting for a pricing table.
I worked about 10 continuous hours yesterday and almost 9 today. Wednesday and Thursday are best for me. I have half a day of the next five going forward, so I won't have all this time. But the main thing is getting all the players busy.
Everyone, look for pricing lists tomorrow. The Senex campaign will not be starting in the Donbass, but in the Greek Islands . . . but will probably be moving towards the Donbass at some point. I'll be providing a price list for the market of Syros ~ everyone, including Kismet, Sophia and Enrico, should assume they have an opportunity to go shop there; we can assume these three will meet Yuliya and Ibrahim there.
The Juvenis campaign will be buying goods in Stavanger, of course.
Please, everyone provide the information for your characters that's needed so we can keep moving forward. There will be time to hesitate and question your market purchases on the weekend.
Also, I know that most campaigns need some complicated reason why a bunch of strangers group together to become a party. I don't think this odd at all. People meet, they hit it off right away, they all have similar interests and they thrown in together. Happens all the time. We don't need a special reason.
I don't know if I will have a reason to talk to the players on this blog again. I may write a post for general interest, talking about the process of making so many characters and such ~ but I have found in the past that readers don't actually have much to say about that.
One player asked if I could set up a place where the would-be players can begin to chat and get to know each other. I suggest using this post. I'll take down the moderation until tomorrow morning ~ which might be interesting. All sorts of riff-raff and such could get in here!
