<t>Actually, although I own all three modules, I have only gone through them in Neverwinter Nights (a PC game) which allows a human DM to run a module. It was good fun though. The second module was a bit of a meaningless slog at times. The third was a very cool adaptation of the [spoiler] environmen...

<t>We are having some good sessions. I like how Treebore is running the game. If we want to spend the rest of our (probably short) lives walking the misty moors trying to provoke random attacks on ourselves, who is he to gainsay it?<br/> <br/> Slimy's sword really was a difference maker last time. I...

<t>Great module, slimy. Probably the best starter module ever. The second part of the module requires stealth, rather than brawn. Hopefully your experienced players can adapt to that. Fortunately C & C, rather than the more restrictive 1st ed. rules the module was designed for, do allow for all ...

<t>I likewise will go with what you prefer on character death.<br/> <br/> When I DM, although I can see some of the arguments for punishing character death (especially 'moral hazard': you have to punish it or players are too reckless), I tend to be fairly lenient as well. This is because player deat...

<t>I do not have a web cam.<br/> <br/> As to whiteboards, we should probably try one of the available (free) programs first. We did not really give the program connected to Skype (talk and write??) a full run, so we could try that. It seemed pretty sluggish the first time, but that could have been s...

<t>I am still trying to get a handle on exactly what I will play, but it will probably be something that: a) slings a few arcane spells around and b) stays at the back and shoots a bow<br/> <br/> Oh, and since Rhuvein has broken the "Elf Embargo" I might be one of those too.<br/> <br/> Edit- now tha...

Skype works great for me. Clear as a bell. Although there are always complications so we shall see.

My Skype name is aramisxyz. I tried for "aramis" but there seems to be a multitude of them!

Kids: tell your parents, only "authentic" Aramis products for you!

<t>Hi all-<br/> <br/> I hope this is the right forum. I signed up with Grimaryl over at Dragonsfoot, who I think is Treebore here.<br/> <br/> (Wow, that sentence almost looks like spy code, now that I read it )<br/> <br/> Looking forward to the game<br/> <br/> Could someone (maybe Treebore?) send me...
