General Discussion / Master resigning as GM
« on: December 17, 2015, 12:49:01 pm »
I have taken a long look at this and have tried getting back into being a GM again but it is not in me any more. I have great respect for what everyone is doing here. I know me leaving is not going to be much of a streain on the team as I have not done much in over a year. The team knows the details about what has been going on with me but suffice to say I have had quite a few personal and work related issues that has kept me away.The biggest reason I threw myself into this game was because my son played. My son has not played here for years but I continued  because I needed to work on writting my thoughts down and I loved the people who played here. I do not need to work on my writting any more and prefer vocal interaction verses a text based game. I still love the team, the people who play here and the concept of  the Layo universe. It just does not meet my current needs in a game and will not for a while. When you find it a chore just to log on to play it is time to find another game. Even after a year of not playing I find it a chore to log on and play.If you want ot get ahold of me send me a PM as it is linked to my e-mail account and I will get a notification of the PM. I usually reply with in 24 hours of getting the PM.MJ

My wife told me that she wants to go to Comiccon in Ottawa on Mother's day weekend. I did not even tell her I was interested. Miracles never cease :)

General Discussion / I never new it would happen this way
« on: October 02, 2012, 05:09:38 pm »
So my son in-law gets a new job working full time in the field he went to school for. An amazing feat in it's self. Any way I'll get to what I want to say.

 My Son in-law comes up to me and says "I brought you a computer from work that is not working as well as it should. I told them my father in-law loves playing with computers and I'm sure he would love to look at it." I quickly get up, looked at the computer, found out what was wrong and gave them two options on how they might want to fix the issue. Out of the two options they picked the more expensive one and told him to have me fix it and they will cut a check for the repairs.

I have always wanted to get paid to fix a computer. I just never thought it would happen this way. Usually it is a friend in need who asks for help.

My question is once I get paid to do it can I call my self a professional computer repair person?

Rumour Has It / Silver Buckle under Investigation
« on: February 24, 2012, 09:58:30 pm »
The Silver Buckle is under investigation for the disappearance of an extremely valuable slave. The Slave was tracked to the Buckle where he seemed to disappear. Authorities spent two days tearing apart the Silver Buckle looking for the Slave and found only the a blood trail leading to the Clinic. Authorities say their is not enough evidence to charge anyone in the disappearance but they have their suspicions.

The Silver Buckle / New Guest arrives
« on: February 20, 2012, 11:17:21 am »
//This is some preamble for Elohanna's CDQ

Mid Morning a Elven man walks into the Silver Buckle with quite a few bags. He looks around with a rather perplexed face. He speaks loudly to the staff with a rather conceited tone. "I'm looking for Elohanna, I thought I was to be expected. Did no one tell you I was coming?" His look goes from perplexed to frustrated.
 
Elohanna quickly heads out to greet the new comer. "Father Xandar, I presume? We have been expecting you and have your room prepared for your stay. Please we had expected you a bit sooner, please make yourself at home."
 
 He looks at Elohanna and takes a long look up and down and back up again. "Hmmm, not exactly what I was expecting but I guess you will have to do. He looks about and asks in an authoritative tone. "Could we speak in a more private setting. Others do not need to hear what I have to say to you."

Elohanna smiles softly offering to show him the way to her office while Michael helps to take his bags to his room he will be staying in.

Father Xander then looks over at Michael and speaks to him with a superior tone. "I have 4 more bags on the pier that I had to leave behind. The Captain of the Rosa Lee said he would watch over them for me while I made arrangements. Be careful the items inside are fragile."

Before they move to the office Elohanna thanks Michael in advance for helping see to Father Xandars bags, "Thank you dearly Michael for helping see to Father Xandar's things. "

 Offering in her friendly tone Elohanna shows him the way to her office as the walk together.

*An hour later Father Xander leaves the office and is shown to his room where his bags await*

Rumors quietly spread amongst the Dwarven Army along with their friends and allies. They have decided to explore the Deep outside the usual mining explorations. Questions abound..What will they find? Will they come out alive? What new secrets if any will be reveled? Only time will tell....

*This is a PLAYER RUN event with GM assisting with the continuation only, via porting to where we left off*

General Discussion / Varka's last quest
« on: July 05, 2011, 03:37:40 pm »
I'm looking for people who were apart of Varka's last quest where he was turned to stone. I seemed to have lost my logs from that quest. So I can not recall all the information. The reason being is that I plan on doing an event that celebrates what happened and tell the story to those who care to listen.

So if you have your logs or information on who was there and who got what gift would be great. Just send me a PM.

Thanks

Ask A Gamemaster / Character Help
« on: June 17, 2011, 03:40:08 pm »
I'm looking at bringing my character Beli up to World leader standard. In order for me to do this he needs to attain two more levels of rank via a CDQ then apply for the final rank via a WLDQ as master of the order.

I'm looking for a GM or GMs that are willing to work on this from start to finish and some characters that may be willing to help him along. I know of some characters already but I want others that do not know him to feel like they can join in.

The task is not an easy one as the requirements for a Brother of Battle have not been set and it is an uncharted area of Layo lore.

Some required reading on Brother of Battle http://forums.layonara.com/development-related-topics-drt/116250-bob-rank-clarification.html

My goal is to apply for WLDQ in late Dec with the WLDQ happening during Jan, Feb 2012. (pending approval of course)

General Discussion / A kettle of strange brew... Event
« on: April 04, 2011, 09:20:40 am »
I'm carrying on from an impromptu event with the hospital. All are invited. The event will be some time between April 11 - 15 EDT evenings. It is open to all levels and more of an investigation then anything else.

If you are interested give me a time that works for you during that week. I'll be setting the event up in the calendar later this week.

Rumour Has It / Dark Elves in Mistone
« on: September 22, 2010, 10:08:36 pm »
The outcome of the trial of Tyilaan Selaama as the Dark Elf Archer has ended. She was found innocent on all charges.



Once the verdict was read the angry mob outside the courthouse went wild with the news. They caused quiet a bit of damage and injured a few guards in the process.



As the news spreads that the Dark Elf Archer is still out there. People begin looking suspiciously at everyone carrying a bow. People start taking action on there own. Elves with a dark tan have been found hung from a tree. Dark elves that used to be able to live peacefully in towns find that they are not welcome anymore. They are told to move out before something bad happens. Even Fort Vehl is picking on Dark Elves with detailed searches and unexplained entrance fees as they try to enter the gates.

I just found out that I have a virus on my gaming comp. The only way to get ride of it is to wipe the hard drive and reinstall the O/S. I have decided to upgrade the O/S to Win 7 64 from Vista Ultimate 32. Any way till I get everything sorted out I'll not be in game.

General Discussion / GM assisted trip to the Deep
« on: July 15, 2010, 10:47:49 am »
I'm available to do a DM assisted trip to the Deep 19-29 July.

How this will work is you have 10 days to explore the deep and get out again. You can do the trip in as many sessions as you want, just remember you only have 10 RL days. At the end of each session I will port everyone back to safety and take any mined ores or gems at the same time. At the start of the next session I will give the group back all the mined items and port them to their former location in the Deep.

The times I will be available to port a group is 19 to 29 July from 5pm EDT to 10pm EDT.

Roleplaying / GM challenge
« on: May 01, 2010, 05:26:42 pm »
I want to test myself as a GM and gather some inspirational ideas from the general population. This is my challenge.

I would like for you to make up a NPC character profile that I have to use in an adventure. All the NPCs that get PM'd to me will have an active part in the same adventure, as long as they meet lore standards. If I have a problem with your character I'll let you know so you can edit it.

RULES
-I ask that you send no more then two NPC character submissions from any single person.

-I reserve the right to rename the NPC. That way you do not know who it is if you are apart of the adventure.

-Do not post the profile in this thread. PM it to me.

-Same rules for PC generation should apply to these NPCs


MJ

P.S. if any GMs want to help collaborate on making this adventure just let me know.
