I'm going to put in a vote for the honor system - I'm all right with either way, though.

Yeah visible is good with me  how are we gonna do it though?

Invisible Castle's dice roller is what we'd use. All rolls for your character would be listed under her name there and would be linked in your posts on the thread to the archives on the site.

I'm still wondering whether I as the DM should also have my rolls linked to the site. On the one hand, you'd know I was playing fair. On the other, there could be no fudging of rolls to save the PCs' lives.

Only rolls I'd make public are opposition rolls and combat rolls.

I would like visible rolls. And I like the lack of fudging to save us. It's no fun if there's no risk.

I'd actually prefer visible rolls myself.

(Placed into separate post for clarity)

And one other thing: I tend to go for a more kick-in-the door action/adventure style of play, rather than a deep-immersion political maneuvering mystery type of game. So expect more dungeon crawling, combat, puzzle-solving, etc. in this game and less negotiating or investigating. I'm sorry if this style conflicts with certain character concepts, but there is room for it in this campaign if someone with better abilities in that area wants to serve as a co-DM. I'm afraid I'm just not very good at some play styles.

For example, I do have ideas about how a "corruption in the Church of Sarenrae" subplot could work in the campaign, but actually implementing it into the individual adventures I have no clue about. So until I can work with someone who has a better idea about implementing long-term behind-the-scenes stuff, I do not have a way of including a "corrupt church" plot even though one of the character backgrounds demands I include one.

And I could definitely use a co-DM for this, even if it means recruiting someone who's already playing.

EDIT: I guess I should say that I'm basically adapting a campaign I used several years ago to the Golarion setting that was not tailored to a specific group of characters, and that I should have discussed all this long ago.

Ooh, one thing I didn't notice. I forgot to ask for Lillith's spells.

Oh, and Madman, when you're finally done, please post a full character sheet here and I'll add it to the game thread. Your character will randomly show up wherever the rest of the party happens to be.

EDIT: And it is begun!

Mountain lions are, on average, larger than leopards, but smaller than lions. Depending on the individual mountain lion, either set of stats could potentially apply. This one uses the "lion/tiger" stats rather than the "leopard/cheetah" stats, so it would be a large male.

One other thing I'm changing about the rules (and Zygarde, you'll like this): If you are attempting to disarm or trip someone with a weapon that is specifically designed for disarming or tripping, you do not provoke attacks of opportunity when doing so.

It seems like the game thread has been pretty much dead for the last few days. Is something going on that I'm not aware of and do we even want to keep playing anymore?

I'd rather not have to keep forcing the plot, but if the players keep staying inactive for extended periods of time I feel like I have no choice. Will we continue the campaign or not?

I'm sorry if I sound insistent.

EDIT: Also, just because Svata has been busy recently doesn't mean you can't do things without him. Siella was never appointed party leader, after all.

I believe there was a suggestion earlier that if a player has not posted for a long period of time and his/her character is needed, the DM could decide to briefly run the character according to that character's established personality.

Therefore, I would like to implement this option. If it has been 48 hours since an absent player's character is absolutely needed (such as initiative in combat), the DM can choose to roleplay that character until the player returns or the combat/essential action is complete, whichever happens first.
