    I mean granted you survive to that level you should get some cool shit but there would be some kind of limiting factor. Maybe an cumulative minus to other spell checks the more tethers were active, or having to roll to do more than one tether, or something like that. Just so it doesn't become broken and you're not overseeing your whole party at all times like some sort of quest giver in Borderlands.

    All I've heard about that is massive non local orgy thing or something.

    So it seems you're correct.

    How's this sound for a flag?

    Impatient: Propose we discuss a plan of action for a pressing situation. Mark XP when if I ignore you.

    Arrogant: Suggest a dangerous/unwise/audacious plan of action. Mark XP if I follow it.

    Rash: Advise me to be cautious in a situation. Mark XP if I'm not.

    I'm only going to go with one of those but that all kinda bump against what I'm aiming at. A sort of cocky teenager sort of vibe. I'm ambivalent on the first one. It will drive action which is good but it could also be rather annoying to play with. Though I sorta feel DW kinda encourages some of that. (Please be assured that me doing that sort of thing is so folks have fun and we have some tension. If it really bothers you let me know as I do not want anybody to be uncomfortable.)

    I'd maybe turn the wording slightlu

    Impatient: present me with a planning opportunity so that I can disregard that and charge on ahead

    Arrogant: get me to agree to a reckless/stupid plan by doubting if I can keep up

    Rash: present me with a plan that would keep me safer so that I can disregard it at my own peril

    Something like that. My brain isn't working today haha

    How are these for flags?

    Good Listener - I’m always available if you need someone to talk to. Anything you tell me is between you and me and my god.

    Curious - I love exploring places and discovering new things. If there’s something you want opened, but don’t want to open it yourself...


    EDIT: Also everything I am trying to put in my character sheet is showing up as bold text. I don't know why. I look at the example of Ashe's character sheet and there's lots of not-bold text there.

    I don't see how you ever refuse the first. Flags need to give you a meaningful choice.

    The second seems alright on that front. I'd probably rephrase it as a limited version of rash up above. These aren't exactly supposed to be one character blackmailing/contorting another. More like compels in Fate where somebody can point out a character trait and how it should probably cause you grief, "Don't you agree?" style of thing.

    Edit: Good listener: Confide in me something others should know. Mark XP if I keep it between us.

    Like DA said, you want to have it be a choice that could come with consequences or presents a meaningful choice.


    If you are trying to line break with no bold, try
    <p>
    
    instead of br and see if that does it?
    I'd like to tell you what i did, but it was basically "edit this shit a million times until it is pretty"

    Oh dang. Gonna cross post from our FB page with an update
    Our crazy campaign is up past 20 members now! It's not too late to throw your name in the hat, or hat in the ring, or ring in the volcano and join us!

    Attendees for each session will be chosen by RNG if the number who RSVP is higher than the number of slots. Rolls will be weighted to favor those who have yet to play.

    We will be streaming the session and also plopping it up on YouTube so if you aren't playing in a session you can still follow along!

    We hope to see you all there. Or hope you watch it. Or something. We all hope something!

    Ok,
    -Chris

    So, apparently prestidigitation can warm, cool and flavor things.. and my brain immediately jumped to that recent meme of .. Salt Bae? (Really? That's what the Internet went with? Salt Bae? My brain hurts.)
    I now know where my wizard picked up his first spell, the personal cookbook of a well regarded cook/chef/innkeeper from his hometown.

    Have you joined the campaign via the obsidian portal page? Should have links to all the things on the home screen there

    That helps. I wasn't 100% that I was joining yet though, in case it turns out I have no idea what I'm doing.

    We can walk you through that part :)
    It's mostly you say what you want to do and we decide what move that aligns with and you roll 2d6+ relevant stat. 2-6 is failure. 7-9 is partial success with consequences. 10+ is full success

    Dear first session folks,
    If you pick the job to raid the shrine on the 1st floor (Discreet help needed!) try to figure out if it's a Place of Power.. and if it is, don't!
    I kinda want to Ritual up a little cartoon rain cloud, or blot out the sun.. probably the rain cloud though.
    Sincerely,
    Your completely trustworthy wizard.
    P.S. Tiny rain clouds make awesome showers, and are great for rooftop gardens in the desert, just sayin'.
    P.P.S. I'm sure no water merchants would be super pissed off that we have a tiny little infinite source of water, no siree!
    P.P.P.S. Who really needs the sun anyway?

    So, here's the player breakdown for the first two sessions.
    Session 1 (going to use obsidian portal names since some folks aren't on the forums.)
    * Tailsgod
    * MitchellDill
    * Aistan
    * Allyxia
    * TruthPuncher
    * Quippish

    Session 2
    * Darkprimus
    * Grunt’s Ghosts
    * Tyberiuslee
    * Matev
    * Botznoy
    * Dramaturgerenata

    What I did with the rolls was I gave everyone who RSVPed for a campaign this week 2 points.
    If you RSVPed for just one session, both of your points went on that session. If you RSVPed for both, they got split evenly between the two sessions (1 each)
    I then made a list of all the signups and numbered them.
    Then rolled a die equal to the number of total tickets for that session in orokos.
    Then picked the corresponding name, crossed it off of the list(s) it was on, and continued.

    Anyone who did not get into these two gets to keep those two points. They will roll forward to the next thing you RSVP for, so you then have 4 entries, etc etc
    Interesting note: The folks who only RSVPed for one of the two days ALL got into the day they RSVPed for.

    For those of you who didn't get into these, please don't be discouraged and please don't think I'm trying to exclude you by any means! Demand just outstripped supply to an extent that kind of blew my mind. I was expecting to only have enough people to do tuesday OR thursday, not both and then some.

    I encourage folks to watch along on twitch when we stream tuesday! Provided twitch cooperates, of course.

    I believe it will be a similar setup to how we're doing Blades in the Dark.

    Vox through roll20, @TheRoadVirus using OBS to record audio/video locally, so the final product will be what he heard and said.

    I was under the impression this was a live-play-only thing, and was not being recorded for podcasting? Like, maybe it goes up on the Youtube channel, but it won't end up in the website feed.

    I don't know if I have it in me to arrange two of these per week. But we shall see! We still have... Three other campaigns going with the podcast and also I have a local one, haha.

    So yeah time will tell on the number per week. Also the days will shift around some so that we can try and catch people who aren't available for weekday games and so on.
