There is likely no more onerous task in D&D than version-reconciliation of multiple character sheets. Working on it, but will take numerous days.

No worries.

I have physio today and another 'health' appointment tomorrow. I might get a post up tonight, but I having a feeling it will more likely be in the late afternoon tomorrow.

If a transitional post does go up, just use Relgar as you remember him for downtime activities etc., whatever works to get the story going again. Rules can be brought in when I have them ready; I doubt we'll suffer in their absence.

Incidentally:

Knightfall wrote:OOC: No worries. There is a large kingdom to the north of Bluffside that is based on a fantasy version of Medieval Italy with a bit of early Renaissance, IMO. The idea of being Machiavellian would come from there, and it would likely be a new concept in the last 50 years.


Since writing this, I've heard more about Machiavelli, and realized that he was basically massively misconstrued by history; "The Prince" was written as a satire, I knew that originally, but I hadn't known just how far off the historical reception was. He wasn't just satiring for artistic purposes; "The Prince" became so popular in Machi's own time that the people he was writing back actually had to pull back on their behavior, because the world had been given a primer on the kind of crap they were likely to pull, and they could no longer get away with it.

So what I'm saying is, if your campaign's equivalent of Machiavelli is still alive, he's probably pissed about the word that's arisen in the wake of his legacy falling apart, and I'd kind of like to have Relgar meet him.

I will start writing my next post tonight, but I'm thinking it will go up in the morning.

I have now read (well, skimmed at any rate) all of the campaign thread since my character's introduction, so I believe I can now more or less resume RP as though I had been following along. I've left Relgar's last post, in which he comes to himself and is confused, as I wrote it before doing this back-reading; the Memories link is a reminder to myself of how I've played him in the past and what he's been involved in.

Relgar has just been revised from his max-human intelligence of 18, into the normally impossible 20 which he achieves by virtue of his Paragon status (he remains a 5th-level wizard, as he was before being revised into a 6th-level character, but gains an immense number of Skill Points in the change, as well as his heightened intellect; since he has no Familiar, he loses nothing in the change, and I may well give him an Alternate Class Feature in exchange for the lost Familiar, which can happen when he actually reaches Wizard 5). In view of this, I figure that it will take him only a moment of befuddlement to put together what's been happening around him, while he was focusing on his work and not paying attention to his surroundings - he heard the conversation around him, he just didn't listen to it, if you follow that. So my next post will be where he makes it clear that, in Sherlock Holmes / Iron Man fashion, he's picked up the gist of what's going on, despite his apparent lack of involvement.

I'll also be addressing the character change, through the vehicle of the problem he was solving in-scene, although he's still going to be at the WBL of a level 5 character, and have knowledge of only three "Grade" 3 spells. His next level will be a Geometer level, so I'll start making allusions to the abilities he will end up having once he fully qualifies.
