Sounds good! :thumbsup:

Are you sure you don't wanna "pre-program" Pet Tricks so as to account for their limited understanding of my communication? It helps complicate them. I'll still talk to them naturally most of the time, yet having a few Commands empowers-and-limits me as well as leaves room for your interpretation of my pets. :hehe::crap:
Sorry for the delay. Yes that sounds fair. How does five semi complex commands? Sit stay follow are simple commands.
Simple commands are free.
Complex commands are like attack a specific opponent.

Sound reasonable?

:sad: I was thinking 3 simple commands per INT, and maybe 1 compound command of two simple commands per INT (and or one simple plus fear check). Otherwise I have to spend Actions to coach them on through. Since most animals rarely breach 3 INT it'd really tamp down their action ecomony power.

This is so much power! :weep: Whatever shall I do? :clown:
I accept! :thumbsup: I also will restrain myself from abuse of your generosity. :closed::heart: I am the easy going player.

My apologies for not keeping up guys. I think I'm better off as a GM than as a player. Thank you for giving me a chance to join though. Best of luck with the game!

This is miraculously still limping along! Anyone else interested in joining in a slow moving play by post that handles absence well?

Still looking for players? I just bought the B/X Essentials books and this looks about the weight I can handle.

Not very. I'll devote some time to catching up on the thread in the near future.

I'm just about to leave town for a five-day long weekend and may or may not go dark depending on whether the hotel has decent wifi, but I expect to be both jetlagged and busy to the point of sacrificing sleep during that time. If I'm silent for a while, that's why.

No worries, this game has Nap Times! :grin: Because old people like naps (and hate drafts)! :yawn:

You could accurately describe the speed of this game as psuedo glacial due to GM speed.

To speed your entry we could just make you a prisoner of the recently defeated snakemen. Either be from the original village or not up to you.

He said he'd be incommunicado for a bit. I'm out this weekend. If I hear nothing by Tuesday, I'll continue where we are and work him in later.

I'm about halfway through reading the IC thread. I've random-genned a bunch of characters, but figure I'll settle on whichever one fills an empty niche when I reach the end of page 4.

I admit my concentration isn't entirely there tonight.

I'm going to be busy the next couple days so no huge rush on my end.
