It's a soft P.

So, I was just doing a little bedtime reading, and it's got me all fired up about Hadrian's upcoming campaign. Hopefully we can still make a session or two happen in the coming days/weeks.

Game On

Well, the trend is towards Greyhawk. And in that vein, I've selected an adventure for Winter Break play. It's the Pathfinder series, portions of which, I believe,have appeared in Dragon-- so avoid reading any of those if you stumble upon them. While it is not Greyhawk per se, I think the campaign setting is very Greyhawk-y, which should satisfy everyone (I hope). For now, let's accomplish two things: 1. let's find out who is playing--if you want in, say so, and 2. let's throw around some preliminary possible dates (alternatively, what dates are absolutely out?)-- I'll figure out my schedule and contribute my thoughts on that (I would say that New Year's Eve is out since that would definitely take Cap'n Redbeard out of the mix).

Okay, maybe three things-- the third being rules, especially vis-a-vis character creation. At the moment I'm leaning towards allowing only the PHB and PHB II races and classes, but I'm open to discussion on this point. And let me know what you guys think about methods of character creation. Also, discuss what races and or classes you'd like to play, so we can plan to get a good party composition. I'll read the adventure and see if there is any certain party composition we need and get back to you.

(Of course, it goes without saying that the most important thing we need to figure out is when-- and where).

The Poll

The poll I alluded to in the last post:

What kind of game should we play over Christmas?
We shouldn't. I don't want to play.
Forgotten Realms.
Good Ole Greyhawk.
Something else entirely.
This question doesn't apply to me. I don't game with you losers.

December Adventures

I need to do some practice DM'ing well before Ptolus gets underway. How would everyone feel about a one or two session game over the Christmas holidays? My schedule isn't set at this point (one week left of finals), but I'm planning on spending at least a few days in KC (possibly New Year's but that is still up in the air). I'm posting a poll at right to explore this further.

Hey, nerds. Don't forget about Talisman tonight at the estimable Degolar's dwelling. 6:30 or so. Hopefully most of you can come!
