Introduce Yourself -- Game Masters / GM Ravemore« on: May 26, 2023, 12:32:32 am »
I’m playing from the Eastern US time zone and I'm a returning GM. I was on the team back in 2011. I first started playing Layonara in 2006. I met a lot of really cool people here. I come from a long, long roleplaying background. Anyway, real life pulled me away with a cross country move for work, my master’s degree program, and later a cancer diagnosis for both my wife and I. We both beat it and I’m pushing 5 years now in the clear. The kids are grown up, graduated college, have good jobs, and are mostly on their own. I’ve been back to Layonara since last fall and I’m now ready to do some part time GM work. So… a little bit about my GM style.
1.) I enjoy putting together short impromptu quest sessions most. My ideal groups are smaller. I’m likely to limit participation to no more than 3-6 players. If I schedule a quest its usually “first come first serve.” I love dropping random monsters or encounters on players without formal quests. If you are in the Deep and start seeing weird stuff and it starts becoming much more difficult… A good bet is that I’m probably in the server.
2.) After I have had a fair amount of time re-learning the tools and lore I will run CDQ’s, but there are some caveats. Characters need to be below 10th level. You need to have a journal with enough material for me to work with. Although I will run Corath themed quests, I will not involve myself in ones affecting leadership positions in the church or other affiliated organizations. My main player character could potentially create conflicts (real or imagined.) If I get more than two pending CDQ’s I’ll shut myself off from more signups until further notice. It might be a long time too. I’m not keen on the idea of running them one after another continuously. For the time being I am closed, but I'm open to discussing future ones though now via PM's in Discord.
3.) Good RP will get you good XP… Excellent RP will get you excellent XP. No RP will get you a rust monster.
4.) Actions have consequences… some can be long lasting. Some might be awesome. Some might make you cry.
5.) I’m kind of picky about sleeping/resting. You don’t have to ask permission, but out in the wild places of the world, camps should be set up and night watches placed. Study your spell books, talk with each other a little bit, eat a little food, etc. In towns I don’t want to see you dropping in the middle of the busy street to rest. Find a place that makes sense.
6.) Loot should be split among all players at the end of the quest round-robin style. True should be evenly divided. No hiding or stealing… even if your class or alignment makes sense.
7.) Please have some patience with my use of mechanics and lore... it has been a long time since I have done this work.
8.) I reserve the right to make changes to this later.

Hank Everdale leaves a note at the store stating he needs some cobalt full plate. He deposits 10 ingots and a pattern upfront in the special orders chest with additional instructions that there is no rush on the order.

Hank Everdale returns to do some official business. He pulls out a finely made Cobalt Half Plate and a Cobalt Tower Shield leaving 13,000 trues and 8,000 trues respectively in the same chest. As well, he drops off his old adamantium shield and platinum half plate in their respective chests.

Rumour Has It / A Jolly Roger is hoisted over 102 Hlint« on: July 13, 2022, 10:21:37 pm »
Sipping on his morning coffee, the realtor thumbs through his ledgers and is suddenly startled when the door swings open, crashing nearly off its hinges.
"I need a place to lay low, nice an private loike. no questions asked," grumbles the sullen one-eyed dwarf through a long black matted beard. The stench on his breath a sickening sweet mix of rye and bloodlust.
"That will be a hefty order sir... for on such as you? Fifty-Thousand." the realtor chortles, expecting this ill-kept vagabond to be priced out of the market. "And we don\t offer lines of credit"
"Fifty Thousand? That all?" the dwarf casually pulls open a loop from his enchanted bag and digs through its contents as a prospector of many things. "Ye take coin, emerald, mithral, ruby or skulls?"
"Just the coin, thank you." The merchant simmers.
With a jingle, a single burlap sack, stained with the blood of countless giants, ogres, trollocs and various other beasties lands with a crack on the table, which creaks and buckles under its weight.
"You could have just had a bank note issued... it's two doors down you know"
"Yeah, I know! Now get to counting, I ain't got all day!"
And with that, the dwarven pirate chortled and marches off to his new home overlooking the lake of bountiful carp. The lawn soon begins to clutter with the skulls of various exotic monsters, artfully placed as any garden gnome.
A new reign of terror begins.

Hank Everdale enters the store and heaves a fine adamantium tower shield from the chest and places 7000 true inside. He also places his old iron tower sheild in the appropriate chest. Leaves word for any balance he still owes or has.

*A poorly scrawled note is left in the greater jewelry case*
Took dragonscale bracers and left proper true per your standards.
I also took three greater resistances, electrical, fire and acid. Belt of the Battlemage taken. Do you wish true or trade?
An emerald amulet and ring taken. Unsure who they belong to. I left a few similar in their place, and some more emeralds. Hopefully they'll be put to use better than in my pockets. If a problem, or if wanting true, or more gems, or anything, send bird. I may be back within the season. Probably not. But maybe. Probably so.

Barley leaves a blue note in the Transaction Chest, titled "Barley's Account", seemingly oblivious to a small note from Ke'Koa written on the same paper:
"Hello Mistress Pandorn! I'm leaving for appraisal a rare and valuable heavy crossbow, scribed with the name of its previous owner, "Drido Darrin". I'm taking a regular Monk's Robe, priced at 5500 True. please let me know what you value the crossbow at. I am leaving 1000 True, and I can pay the rest for the robe at your request, or we can talk about a potential barter. Thanks! ~Barley"
