A surprise gift arrived through my door this morning and is snugly nestled beneath the tree as I type this.

 

A massive thank you to my Feylin, may your Winter Holiday be full of joy & good Karma. <3

Aye, originally it wasn't very clear because like a lot of the things during season 1 the concept, mythology and playerbase were in constant fluctuation while I settled on something that worked.  In season 2 things a lot more set in stone, with a more solid ruleset to work from.

 

Some stuff worked in season 1, other stuff didn't - it was a fun little module to through, mind. :)

We've gotten around the character death aspect quite nicely, tbh, with the Wolf Cult business.

 

Basically how it works is thus:

  • Character dies.
  • Character is given an audience with their god where they are given a short chance to speak their case and why they should be sent back in the same body.
  • If they got their old body back they carry on as normal, otherwise gen a new character.
  • In both cases they have 10% less than the average xp for the party.

This gets streamlined and adjusted later on (season 2) and the god audience stuff can easily be ignored.  Essentially though, the 'character' remains the same - personality, experiences, etc - they just change bodies. This way the player only suffers a mechanical loss rather than a roleplay loss.

Yeah, I have to say I massively prefer GMing at the table with people again.  The group goes through some dynamic changes as this season continues, but by the time the module is ended we have an awesome team kicking ass & taking names. In fact, we've almost finished recording the next module: Ravenloft: Night of the Dead! :D

Looks like I've grabbed something from my Guild Wars 2 roleplay this time.  The guild I'm with has a thread where we detail the 'off screen' activities of our characters. :3
 
56-57th of Colossus
After reuniting, albeit briefly, with Gutt Kassius returned with Knight Mixxi to Vigil Keep.
 
The next day he showed a more noticeable increase in spirit.  While the other recruits enjoyed their leave, Kassius set to his duties with a degree of determination the young Charr has never shown before.  He reports bright and early to Knight Mixxi each morning, performing any petty tasks she might have for him, before attending his studies or training.
 
In his private time, however, he is as quiet and solitary as ever.  Often found sitting upon the battlements, watching the road coming from Lion's Arch.  Yet this doesn't seem to bother Kassius as much as it once did.  This is not an isolation born of self-exile, but instead one of self-reflection.
