Nero Character Survey

In an effort to include more character specific plot in the game we have put together this survey.  It is mostly free text.  Please feel free to include as much or as little detail as you would like for each question.  Keep in mind that the more detail you include, the more likely we can build your character plot in.

The form is set so that you can update the information even after you have hit submit so please provide as much info as you can manage for now.

August Survey

Please complete the August Survey.  I had mentioned that there would be questions about the Kitchen but I will be managing that feedback separately.

August Event Survey

August 21-23rd Event

For the upcoming event we are trying a slightly different approach to the weekend and we wanted to give everyone a heads up in advance to.  Here are some highlights:

  1. The plot team for the weekend will be much more reactive than proactive.  We will be looking for guidance from the players on what they want to do for a large portion of the event.  There will be some structure around this and it should become evident very quickly when it happens.  Do to the nature of this, I would not expect plot hooks that come to you to be as frequent as in previous events.
  2. All day Saturday will be treated as a single mod and a pot of treasure which will represent the bulk of the treasure for the day will be provided when the “all day” mod is over.  There may be additional planned treasure on specific encounters but not necessarily on every encounter.  This applies to encounters in-town as well.
  3. Most encounters are not scaled.  If five people go to where there is an enemy army, they will fight an enemy army and will likely need to run or die.  We expect that this event is a little harder and deadlier than most.  Mods may or may not spill into town.
  4. There will be an increase in the number of search/steal active monsters and there is no guarantee that you will have a reasonable chance to get stolen goods back – this includes if your friends are stolen.
  5. There will be some very specific NPC props in the tavern.  Please treat them with out-of-game respect as they are people’s personal property.

Because we are trying a new format we would definitely encourage everyone to fill out a survey at the end of the event and let us know what you think..

In-Game: Report from Rendal

As requested by Her Excellency Dalnya Laire’elen, Countess Kyrinen the County Watch has prepared a summary of what has been reported to date:

  1. The Stone Behemoth shaped like a Toad hopped from the edge of the mountain along the Southern border of the County dragging pieces of the mountain behind it.  As it traveled the debris formed a 6-8″ tall wall of stone.  Water is starting to pool in the low laying areas as the river is backing up into the fields.
  2. Undead have gathered in the area along the wall in Watchwood, Eldamar and Wolfhaven.  They seem to have put up some areas of corruption to allow them full power during the day.
  3. In the Northwest an army of 3 tribes of Ogres have moved into the plains and blocked passage from Kyrinen to the Sea.  These Ogres are believed to be from tribes that fled the collapse of the Ogre Kingdom of Mors Drakor.  With the Ogres are fire elementals.
  4. A large number of Gnolls have taken the bridge to Corvedeux to the Northeast of Innis.  Members of the watch who fell in that area indicated that it looked like there were Golems being moved onto the bridge..
  5. A large number of trees have been felled on the road just South of Watchwood
  6. The pass to Chodladh go Maith appears to be blocked by a mix of summoned creatures.
  7. The men of the South Woods are intermittently attacking on the road between the main Watch Tower and Watchwood.
  8. There have been signs of the Nightmare Legion up near the Innis Quarry.

Scouts from the Watch are working to get more detail and we expect to have a more complete picture by tomorrow evening.
