    Morning all. Or afternoon or whatever the heck time zone you reside in. Make sure to get your coffee as you come through the door, we do not want a repeat of last week.

    Colonel Kane's Castle Triskelion PbP

    Steelhead 2 You wake up on the morning of the second day of Steelhead and reflect back on the whirlwind of the last few days. At your meeting on the docks, Desmond accepted the adventuring contract and asked the crowd if anyone else wanted to join the group, (As I am unaware of Blazing Tornados character’s name They volunteer). The rest of that day, the 4th of Gateway, was spent acquiring provisions for the trip and planning. It was decided that there were only two local places that the greenish streaks could be coming from, the dwarfish mining community of Gel Amon and Castle Triskelion. The river come directly from Castle Triskelion and a creek from the mine, Mine Creek, feeds into the river. The provisions include enough food for 10 people for a week, an Adventurer's tent,(a magical tent big enough to hold 10 people, but yet will shrink down to fit in a backpack, warming stones, which when placed inside the tent, will keep the tent at about 65 degrees even when the temperature is below zero and yet will be only slightly warm to the touch, and comes with 10 cots for sleeping.{I am still working on this magic item}), the tent is on loan from the Adventurer's Guild and they expect it be in the same condition as it left in. You left Castra Isca early on the morning of the 5th of Gateway and followed the river south (*See new map), upon reaching the junction of Mine Creek and the River Isca, the greenish streaks were coming from the Isca and not Mine Creek. So you followed the river towards the castle. The road along the river was overgrown, but still made the trek fairly easy and quick despite the cold and the light snowfall and reduced visibility. The days have been fairly cold with the high on Starday (the day after the dock meeting) of only 21 degrees. Yeste and the day before,high was 18 and there was a light snow fall and today's high promises to be even colder. You arrived last night with just enough light to set the tent. You passed through the fifteen foot gate situated between two small towers in a ten foot high wall erected between to mountain cliffs on either side. The gate was made of wrought iron and it opened easily at your touch. You rise and step outside the tent and are greeted by a cold winter's morning with a few small snow flakes drifting down. You camped last night just off the road within site of the castle, (see map {OutsideApproach}, (please be aware that on this map North is actually pointing SOUTH!) you will be just off the road near the edge of the map). The castle is made of dressed light and dark grey stone, you can make out the windows of what you assume are the first and second floors and two towers of what is probably the third floor. There is a gradual ramp to the broad and wooden bridge leading up to, one would assume is the front door. to the north (check this against the map and the direction change) of the ramp you can see a meadow, that is probably grassy in the spring and summer, but which is covered in a light patchy snow. The area that is marked 'stables' on the map is nothing more than a bunch of broken and burned beams. I await your decision on if you head up the road to enter the castle or if you turn tail and run back to town. https://drive.google.com/file/d/10TzU8OIqluaTcP2ouS8aoIN4AhX7lngd/view?usp=sharing

    Pitchforks........... They require little coffee and even less skill in using them. Trust me, I have lead rebellions before.

    Hope everyone is doing well. I am not reading the backlog of like 12 pages to see what you all have been up to..... The forums are still here and i have not heard of any mass uprising of hobbits,,,err hobbyist. Been quite interesting the last few days, my hammer has laid low many a goblins, sorry Buglips, but when they attack my hold, my hammer will send them to what ever heathen gods they worship. I do not know who's not doing their job, but I spent 17 &1/2 hours helping fix it and it still is not done. If I ever find out who, my hammer will be the least of their worries. They need to stop playing with their pyrite in a corner during work hours...... Sorry for the rant all.

    Well someone outbid me. Just got home from a 12 hour shift at DG. Have to go back in tomorrow for a 5 hour shift on one of my days off. Was going to catch up on the forums,but too tired. Think I will go to bed and see how of the next 12 hours I can sleep, despite the back. Hope everyone is having/had a great day, hope tomorrow is just as great if not better.

    Colonel Kane' PbP

    Hello all This post is to see if there is any interest in a PbP using the OSRIC system. For those that do not know it is a 1E clone. It will be set in my home brew world of Pandarrow and I will be running the Castle Triskelion Mega Dungeon again, we never got to it in the last PbP. I will not post any links or additional information, until I know if this is going anywhere. I am looking at about a post a week. I am thinking about posting on Saturdays the have your post due by the following Thursday. As I have had problems in the past, if you miss a post your character will miss a turn. Thank you for taking the time to read this post.

    Try this map. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1UTwsiN0qNxJRyL-0NCpMDtdgTbMSUL8u {I am assuming the party has lit a torch.... Unless otherwise stated, all rooms will be dark. I have added more hallway to show Loim what he sees as he looks around the corner. I have added Room 3 with the description as Arkady indicated that doorway and as I heard no other suggestion for a door. } Room 3- The walls and floor of this room are an attractive red paneling and has an abundant of spiderwebs. There is a pleasant smell to the room. There are two sets of spiral staircases, one goes up and the other goes down. There are three intact dirt-streaked glass in both the north and east walls. You can still hear the wind howling outside.

    Sci fi game universe

    Hello all This post is me seeking some help. I want to run a sci find roleplaying game. My idea is the universe is basically humans have gone into space and discovered that they alone. They have colonized multiple planets and keep expanding. They eventually start discovering ancient ruins. My idea for the adventure is the exploration of an underground city. What I would like help with is how long could I keep this adventure going? How could I help keep this 'fresh?

    So you have decided that the characters will be part of the group that has been called in to explore the ruins. I just think that, it would be difficult to have them as part of the mining crew.

    Sci fi game universe

    Alright. I am using the Traveller setting for the most part and going to use the GURPS 4th Edition. I am working on converting the Traveller Templates over to 4th Edition. At the this time I have just 2 converted, Athlete and Computer Technician. Now I do not see a huge demand for the Athlete, but I figured as it was the first in the book I would use it as my test bed for the conversion process. The setting as I have stated will be the Traveller setting overall, but the adventure will be set on a moon of a Gas Giant. Imperium surveys have shown high mineral content. The Imperium have contracted a Corporation to do the mining. I do NOT have a name for the Corporation yet, but working on. Now I have a choice, Do I have the players as part of the mining group that ends up discovering the ruins or do I have them as a dedicated group to explore the ruins. I have yet to decide. Of course there will be a competing corporation wanting the minerals/ ruins and there will be other obstacles for the players. Anyone have anything else to add?

    Supper in Crock-Pot, 1st load of laundry in washer, coffee made, new speaker paired to phone and jamming, newest addition to the zoo made it through the the night and seems pretty content. So far a good day. I hope everyone is having a great day it at least a non crappy day. To those struggling, I feel your pain, or at least some of it. I wish good vibe to you.

    Randomness XV: 'tis a silly place.

    Ok I have been wanting to run a sci fi PbP, but have not found a rule set I like enough to want to run. I have some of the old Classic Traveller, but it just.... lacks something. Recently I have been introduced to GURPS 4th edition. That led to me finding GURPS Traveller, I made the purchase (Istill have to purchase the 4th Edition books, but I got the Traveller book. Arkady linked me to a GURPS Character site that has a software to generate characters, well I discovered that I can input the templates from the old Traveller (which is 3rd edition) into the software and save it. I finished the first one. It took me about 2 1/2 hours to do, but I had no clue as to what I was doing or how to do it. So now I just need to add in the other templates and that part is done. I am still working on the setting, (read working on the reason to adventure), but it is coming along nicely, so far.
