Apologies for the delay of game. Real life and getting another potential player up to speed has eaten away at my usual "after-work" free time.

Working on an update now...

Sorry about that :/

Any thing else you want me to do with my character?

You should be set. It's just a matter of a handful of posts before we can find an opening to introduce your PC to the others.....

This point marks the conclusion of Act I.

Wow, what fun! The pace may be a bit glacial at times, but I'm having a lot of fun bringing Threshold to life. You guys are really helping to flesh things out from the bare skeleton of the Expert set, notes in B10, and my original manuscript.

If you'd like to purchase any last-minute equipment, go ahead and jot it down on your character sheets. Assume Arthol's 'garrison rate' is normal Player's Handbook price. (As Threshold is on something of the frontier, prices for some equipment is usually just a little bit higher)

I've got to head to work, but will have the opening post for Act II up before the weekend kicks off.

So, have we lost anybody in the first act?

Enjoying it so far.

Finally moved house. Combining disorganized buyers with inept lawyers is a recipe for frustration and delay. Just need to unpack all my books now.

Agreed. It is a fun story! Hoping we still have all the players with us for Act II, haven't heard from our wizard in 2 months...

When the missus and I moved into our house from the apartment, more than half of what we brought with us was books.

I fear the wizard has departed the forums, and the rogue is taking a break from gaming. :(

Hopefully, I've got another PC waiting in the wings, so to speak, so the party will hopefully be back up to 4.

Argh. Rogues and wizards are rather useful to have around.

Good day, everyone!
I am glad for you having me.

This hin is a challenge to me because it is the first one in my life ever. My first preference would have been a Wizard, but then I thought that I would leave that one for another opportunity after this.

Let's help on the beta test! 😀

After years just reading the fora, I am finally posting.

New players are always awesome :D

Have you dropped by the Piazza's main "Introduce yourself" thread yet?

Thank you!
I have been there. Havard even replied to me.
Hopefully I will be good interacting and playing.
I have been reviewing Mystara's lore yet again (it never get boring) and for 5th edition I am used to it.

Welcome Eutropelico. I'm new to this game as well and find the term Hin confusing. Yet assume it means Halfling.

I thank you for your welcome and apologize for using terms specific to Mystara.
You are right, the hin are the halflings.

Just in case you or anyone else do not know about Mystara let me offer you a quick reference (just for aesthetics and organization, so you ignore it is irrelevant that it is meant for 3rd edition):

On Mystara
https://mystara-d20.jamm.com/about.html

On the races of Mystara
https://mystara-d20.jamm.com/races.html

Although you will find a collection of updates (including for 5th edition) and community's creations works on here:

Welcome to the party and thanks for the links. Always looking for more Mystara references, and never checked the 3E stuff before.

Thanks!
But know that 3rd edition is famous for breaking the game in many ways. There are even specific character builds made for that.

Just the information on Mystara is well done there and aesthetically pleasing.
Yet, Pandius is where the largest creation repository is found.

Pandius is to Mystara-philes is what TVTropes is to the rest of the internet.

Set a timer, if you go looking there :D

I have spent many hours there as well. Sometimes I actually have to take notes on which creations overlaps or counterpoints each other.

As a DM, you can choose timeline and events to enrich your lore as you see fit. Thanks to that awesome community.
