Really looking forward to this one guys, thanks. Session 1, while an utter marathon, was also really well done. My congratulations to Lockhart who did an excellent job GM'ing, even at the end of a marathon, when I know my skills tend to degrade.

Why thank you Mr. Eformo. I think part of my GM stamina comes from long ago when the original Yorkton Group would do an all-nighter game every now and then. Oh, the energy drinks that were consumed on those nights.

I'm not seeing this in the EPICS feed on the iTunes store, is there perhaps another stray ampersand or other naughty entity that's lurking in there?

I think it just updated on the community feed.

My mistake, that was the Pantsless gamers SS03 I saw. Will need to get the feed straightened out.

I used to have a lot of stamina in this regard as well. In college, 15 hour sessions were the weekly norm with meals eaten straight from the can while others acted. Perhaps I've just grown old (this was back in the old days, before energy drinks - we only had Mountain Dew). Kids change things too.

Regardless of those factors, I've enjoyed it rather a lot. Now if only the party were a little more combat effective. ;)

You mention at the end being able to tell how long (generally) people stay... slight issue with that is I stay long enough to hit Like, and grab the link for the video so I can download it for off line watching... so yeah, might not mean that much.

(Then there was one time I hit one video several times as I was away from home and watching it in bits and pieces.)

So I for one totally listened to the ending. I found the discussion of what you don't think we listen to quite hilarious.

So when do we get more Shattered Star? ;)

Yes! About half an hour in Hal made the exact same "Rod of Seven Parts" reference that I mentaly made when first reading the adventure prior to running it. I got to that page and went "it's the rod of seven parts isn't it?"

I might've mentioned it to the players too, or made a Star of Seven Parts reference.

I think ancient item rebuilding is a pretty classic trope in adventure writing and seven is always a nice number. Not too big, not too small :)

Rod of Seven Parts is a pretty nice adventure as well - I have say I am quite enjoying Shattered Star so far and I think it will get better the more the party develop.

I am finding the Monk an interesting class to play. I have very little experience playing them and making them work so it is something of an experiment for me. :)

I've really appreciated that the monk is sort of "lawful and we need to do certain things to enforce the law" rather than lawful stupid. Otherwise the interactions that Silver Justice, er, Niramor, has with the nefarious members of his party could get a little tedious.

I also really enjoyed listening to Hal whine for the chance to kill something. Just made me laugh a lot. :)

I have been trying to find the balance to make LG playable without it taking over the party with moral discourse every time we make a decision.

Hopefully it is working and he is not coming out too neutral. Currently my aim is to use non-lethal attacks as much as possible, especially against sentient creatures (that could be given a chance to reform) :)

In additon - because I seem to be neglected posting it...
