If Relgar hears that story IC, in these exact words, he will immediately wonder if there is some metaphysical significance to those three "halves". Perhaps such synchrony is the work of Fate, and could be exploited by someone with the proper understanding. Not that he's especially interested in bounty hunting, or in ruling a city for that matter. (The title of Ashfall would be very desirable as an incentive to me OOC, but not to this character.)

Ostracism in Bluffside

Postby Knightfall » Sun Sep 11, 2016 4:26 am

Yes, he knows it well. Many a mage who got to swelled a head (or became to popular), has been forced to leave the city. Others in the city have been ostracized as well whenever they become overly popular. None of The Five have ever had to face it, but they could with enough of the popular vote of the people. It's never been close and many believe it's rigged.

For know, it's mainly background color, but it could come into play as the campaign progresses.

The idea of the Rule of Three is a big deal in Kulan's Cosmology, which is a variant of the standard Great Wheel. So, there could definitely be a trireme of sorts.

Letting you guys know that I'm dealing with a really bad sinus infection. Went to the doctor today and he gave me a 10-day regimen of antibiotics. My posts will be less frequent until I'm feeling better.

Sorry, had a death in the family and haven't really been thinking about the game. I'll post something tomorrow at the latest.

Man, I'm sorry to hear that. Do not worry about it. Take care of your family. The game can wait.

I have largely shifted my interests out of D&D toward other RPGs (specifically Werewolf: the Apocalypse, the most D&D-like of the White Wolf games, and it will probably shift into the rest of them before it comes back toward D&D in a big way). Given that the game is barely coming along, I won't withdraw and outright kill it, but my participation is likely to be a tad absent-minded. Thankfully, this is entirely in-character.

We could always have your PC fade into the background and just be a supporting character from time to time. It's up to you.

I've been thinking of trying to recruit someone new for the game, but it might not be possible at this point. If I don't get anyone, it will become David's game to play with a supporting cast of NPCs. With his current situation, it likely to crawl along unless I can get someone else interested in keeping it moving forward.

Sounds good. Lemme know if Terger needs a wizard's assistance.

This is what happens when the hobby refuses to pay us to keep it going. :)

Maybe a brief hiatus might be in order. We could break until after New Years and then come back to it?

If you do decide to try to recruit another player, give me a ping if you would like a bit of signal boost.

Hey willpell,

I'm planning on getting this game going again. One of my players from my 2E game (Tellerian Hawke) has decided that he's only up for playing 3E, so I offered to let him join the Bluffside game. We would be continuing right from where we left off, but I'll shoehorn his new PC into the situation, somehow.

You still interested?

BTW, willpell, the new PC is coming in at 6th level, so you can advance Relgar to 6th-level too.
