    I'm definitely down for streaming. If we do that we need to actually start on time though. If we schedule to start at 8pm then everyone should be on at 8pm and we should be done with questions and whatnot and starting the game by 8:30 at the latest. Obviously that should be more strict with the stream days imo.

    I'll talk to you more about the wall of text you posted, but I did have one comment to make right now. You mentioned about the sneaking into the camp and not finding the stone and not scouting further. I came to terms a long time ago that my character could die and I was okay with that. Previously I would try to play "smarter" and keep him alive at the cost of a possibly fun time. Although I feel there is a difference between that and having your character do something completely outright stupid.

    Agreed w/ the stream. I wasn't trying to make a jab at you or anything, I was just reflecting on how thing happened and how a particular situation could have gone better or differently, that's all. A +17 stealth obviously poses a problem and the game rules aren't super specific on where you can stealth and how it functions in certain regards, but I'd like to point out that it will be different in the future. Like if you ever saw that same situation you'd know "they're going to see me" and not "maybe I'll stay undetected because I'm rolling an 18 minimum every time. It worked for you because I let it, but it wouldn't next time.

    So we're going to start a new campaign next session. It's going to start in Zolman'Eshra where the PCs are part of a pirate crew led by the notorious Ogzu Firebeard. The only rule is that the character you create must be a scumbag. Thief, murderer, rapist or all around violent, no good piece of shit.

    Ogzu is a well known pirate who has become infamous throughout the world, but got ambushed by the Imperial navy where his entire crew was slaughtered. He has returned to his home town of Rangulf, located along the coast of Zulman'eshra. He has decided to start fresh with a brand new crew. You are one of the lucky few who made the cut.

    With a fresh start at hand Ogzu plans to remain low profile, as some of the worlds most powerful bounty hunters and law enforcement are actively hunting him.

    The rules of the crew

    1. Don't mention Ogzu by his name to anyone
    2. Don't disrespect another crewmate
    3. Don't steal from a crewmate
    4. Don't bring harm to a crewmate
    5. Don't abandon your crew

    These are the only rules. Ogzu and yourselves are now sailing under a new flag, but the first order of business is deciding a name...

    I also want to make sure everyone is actually excited about doing DnD. I don't want to DM for people who aren't excited to be there. I'm only having a good time if everyone else is. This is especially true for when we move on to stream. People get shy on camera and typically become less fun, so think about that too if you have any interest in being part of the streaming crew. Not gonna tolerate anyone who sits there like a blob on camera and doesn't get involved. We're all equal parts stars of the show so one person is enough to drag it down

    I'm down for that but I don't own a web cam, but I did buy a new mic so is it cool if I'm heard and not seen. I'm not very comfortable with my face being put up on display. ( I'm ugly ) lol.

    I'm afraid i'm gonna be very stubborn about people getting on cam for the dnd stream group. I'll still run our traditional group separately. The DnD stream will likely be the start of a new campaign for stream episode #1 and I'll upload it all to youtube as well. Production is key and having ppl not on webcam is not meeting the standard that's already been set by any decent tabletop RPG streams or youtube series.

    gonna be starting a new group come february, here's a promo.



    I'll be looking to start a second group for anyone who wants to play. Unfortunately 5 is about the limit. I do have wiggle room for a #6 that we'll be using as a guest slot for whoever might want to join us for a session here or there. LMK

    yeah, I played with a lot of different groups and had to whittle everyone I played with down to one group to start streaming with. But like I said, i'm more than willing to run another group if people remain interested in doing so. May or may not be streamed or recorded, but the group i'm working on now was a long time coming as it is.

    taloon and friends are still alive and well in the mountains of thoicia
