Query for Interest: 2EE

OK, so I have spent the last week or two being back at the Archive going over all the old stuff. I still have all of my notes and everything, too. Seeing as how we're trying to bring the site back to life, and there is a lot of overlap between the 2EE roster and the players Ed has assembled for his new game, it should be a simple thing to get it up and running again if people are interested.

We have made contact with the players for Argus, Dalvar, Feruq, Jugg and Thunk. I assume Fixxxer can let Cattea's player know we're discussing this and see where her head is at in terms of rejoining. That leaves Gideon (whose player I am not optimistic about our chances of reaching successfully) and a new character, whose player is a crazy person and I no longer have any contact with; so if we start the game up again, something bad will happen to that half-elf, guaranteed.

I have a few names in mind for replacement players to bring the group back up to 8, but that isn't necessary. We can keep it at 6 if you all would prefer. Basically, everything still exists, frozen in time, after the 2EE sub-forum was locked. If we can open it up again we can just go about our business. There won't be any downtime and can pick up right where we left off.

At this point, I'm looking for input from the players whose characters I listed above about whether they want to proceed.

I am tentatively interested, but I have to ask the obvious question: how likely is this to last for a month or two before updates fall off completely? This is what, the third or fourth time getting this game off the ground?

I don't mean to sound rude, but the last drop off without word really pissed me off made my the anger monkey come out. We even got people on the other site to revamp their characters as a result. I am still playing Jugg in another game where the GM is looking like he might not continue. So, obviously my interest in Jugg has never abated. But realistically, what are we looking at here?

Second question: How often can we expect updates? Is this going to be a daily-check and update type game or more on a weekly basis?

Updates on my end will lean more toward daily than weekly. I can't speak for everyone else.

I understand the frustration. I was mad, too. The drama that was going on back then has abated, but if people are hesitant because I burned them before, I totally get it.

If we are looking at a long term game with attempted daily updates, then I am definitely in.

I didn't have time to talk to KC about it yesterday, but she and I are both off work today, so I'll have no excuses today. I imagine she'll be interested, but if she isn't, I think her PC has had all of about 1 minute of conscious screen time, meaning it'd be easier to make her an NPC that it will be to find a place to tuck Gideon away.

Also, do you still have all the relevant stat blocks for our characters? I'm usually really good about hoarding stuff like that for five minutes longer than eternity, but I had a catastrophic hard drive failure last year and lost a lot of stuff and a windows search of "Feruq" isn't turning up any results.

Update: KC's interested.

For the same reason and many others, I moved all my gaming stuff to my Google Drive a year or two ago. So yeah, we're good to go on that front.

I'm definitely interested. If you'd post my character (probably Argus) I'd appreciate it. Seeing the stats will help me get back in his head.

MinusInnocence

Sure thing. I have submitted my copy of character sheets via PM for Matt, KC and Brett. Does anyone else need theirs?

I have mine, but am I supposed to be using the original, or the FRPG version?

Just poking my head in. I'll do some reading tomorrow to get myself back in the game, but all in all looks good. :)

The latest Pathfinder revision you have. If we move forward with this project, we will just be moving 2EE out of the Retired sub-forum and unlocking everything, even proceeding mid-encounter; which means it probably behooves everyone to go back and read the IC thread.

I'd like my character as well. I think I was keeping in a PM somewhere and I'm not sure were it was. I am in for playing as long as the game doesn't seem like its going to be short term.

Done and done.

OK, that's everyone (minus Craig). I am going to go out on a limb and say that we probably aren't going to hear from him by the time the game starts. Here's what I'm thinking. We will plan to relaunch 2EE next Saturday, April 9th. That will give everyone a whole week to go over their characters, tweak whatever they don't like, shoot questions back and forth, brainstorm, whatever. Feel free to go crazy in the OOC thread but be sure to go back over the IC thread and maybe the Setting and Important Stuff threads, too, to refresh your memory about everything. It's been two years.

Some of you may hear from me beforehand. I'm rolling Intelligence and Knowledge checks for each character cross referenced with the information in the Gazetteer section of the Important Stuff sticky to see if they know anything that isn't provided there. If they do, you will be notified between now and next weekend. Feel free to share as much or as little of that with the rest of the group as you like in OOC.

If we don't hear from Craig by then, I will do whatever I can to remove his character Gideon from the game without killing him or keep him around and try to keep an eye on him. I am pretty comfortable with what we've learned about Gideon thus far and think I can handle roleplaying him. I am also going to reach out to another player to see if he wants in on the action, because the eighth PC; Seralis; is not long for this world.

Awesome. I may be making some tweaks based on how I rebuilt Jugg for the other game - but I think we are only Level 1 over there, so it may be minor.

I have some notes for you from the last reboot, when I gave you some advice about the Pathfinder conversion and recommended different paths Jugg could take. I will send them your way ASAP.

Instead of gozaimas you should have used Mr. Roboto. Of course, he's probably too young to catch a Styx reference.

So everyone knows where I am going with Jugg, I plan on sticking to Dazzling Display/Intimidating Prowess talent tree. After talking with Mike, I figure that Thunk is alreayd better suited to be the primary direct damage dealer. Jugg will now kind of act as a crowd-controller/damage dealer.

The plan being to get the enemies shaken and sexually aroused making them easier for the rest of you to do terrible things to.

Battlefield control has been Feruq's plan since the beginning. With Feruq's mobility and Jugg's reach, stuff's go'n 'splode.

MinusInnocence

Dodge, Mobility and Spring Attack are pretty much mandatory for anyone who wants to fill that role. I think Jugg would get some mileage out of any feat that makes him better at charging, too, because his relatively low speed is a liability (so he'll probably want to spend a lot of time taking double moves, and if you're going to do that, you may as well get an attack out of it at the end).

Thunk wants to get some into this control action too. He says sorry, but he's the dom, Juggs going to have to deal with being a sub.

Dalvar prefers his victims to be unaroused and unwilling, thanks.

Meanwhile, Chuul just stands naked and stares until his victims break down and divulge all their secrets, begging not to get raped without the use of lard.

That goblin sure did beg nice, though, didn't he?

Pretty sure Catteas asexual. It wouldn't even occur to her to mix sex and power. Being raped or raping is almost completely an alien thought to her.

Talanall

Dalvar thinks sex is gross. Hence the "unaroused" part. MI's comment from a couple years ago, about how it would be so much more convenient for all of the PCs if they were just having sex with each other, was spot on for specifically exempting Dalvar.

He is squicked out by the idea of all the fluids involved.
