The DM Appreciation Thread


Because we need one, doggone it. emoticon

Mucho kudos to Numos and Ort yesterday. Between the two of them, I think Braweann shouldered through four or five events.

Lessee...crazy rambling beggar in Avendel, Librarians throwing their weight around Bodkin, Mac Morris sending us to Castle Asheland (and lo, the Monty Python references did flow...), restless spooks and spirits in Elkshire, picking Matthias' brains about lindwyrms and Sidhe and that cranky bastard Whiston...

Something like that.

DMs keep things lively. Keep workin' it, you two. Flaunt it if ya got it! emoticon

Re: The DM Appreciation Thread


1) Kudos to Numos for building Cumberland Road and tossing it in. Cumberland Road rocks, and the far end of the street that leads into the void gives me the zealous hope that this area will be expanded as time marches on. Sorry about accidentally breaking one of the barrels that gives out the good loot; I wasn't lagging or clicking furiously, I swear.

2) Kudos to Ortlindegal for last night's event with the three witchy hags. It was well paced and it involved all of the players quite nicely, even if the characters were divided on whether to hang out with the witches, talk the witches into undoing the mean noblewoman's irritable bowel enchantment or kill the witches outright. Happily, Pike didn't get his way, the witches escaped, Silas and Isania and Wilgold and Braweann covered for them, and Braweann was inspired to work on a few rhyming incantations of her own. And the ornery, stingy noblewoman will still miss the Imperial gala on account of repeatedly fouling her own knickers. So everything worked out in the end. emoticon


On a wildly unrelated point (unless easing the burden of my noobishness is more relevant than I think), I'm certain that Throneymoor is in Aolyth's Highlands, but is Bodkin in the Lowlands or the Highlands?

Kudos to the Ortling. For DMing tonight. And lo, all the cool kids were there...except for Silas (who had to take a math quiz) and Seager (who isn't really one of the cool kids, but we tell him that to make him feel better about his life choices). emoticon

Braweann got to meet Darach face to face, too! There you go, Numos. How's that for proof that Braweann's name isn't in his Black Book? emoticon

Kedri's work, actually! But thanks for your praise. And yay to Ortlindegal for getting the ball rolling on stuff again.

And now, kudos to Doctor Watson for the plot with the pirates and the two orphan girls. The whole thing may not have ended as he intended or gone as far as he thought it would, but such is the power of ad lib. And it seems that Doc can handle ad lib quite well. emoticon

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to put my work on the tentatively titled Ymir's Labyrinth on hold and throw together a bunch of food items for the Use Our Stuff thread. Because those two little girls can't live on figs alone for the rest of their childhoods. emoticon

So...Braweann's "cheeky," is she? emoticon

More kudos to Numos for tonight's adventure with the demonologist's tower and the Hearts of Summer and Winter. It's always rather satisfying to see something that you've submitted to a server put to use, and filling that tower with practically every sort of demon from a peck of quasits to a balor lord was a pretty snazzy use for it. Too bad we didn't check the basement too; we could have run into a dozen mariliths or something. emoticon

Seeing Dunhain smack Pike down afterward was just icing on the cake. Kudos to Seager for taking it like a trooper too. emoticon

Seconded!

As a new player to this server, I felt welcomed right away. The event helped draw me in and make me feel like part of the community right away. My brand new character may not have been all that useful at first, but thanks to patient dming he was able to make his mark on the event.

Re: The DM Appreciation Thread


Like I've said before (in-game, at least), that's what I like about Andrune: It's big enough to be cool, but small enough to care. emoticon

Forgotten Realms: Cormyr is an example of the "too big" variety; despite having 20 or 30 players on at a time, it's surprisingly hard for a newcomer to find an adventuring band because everyone's off in their own little cliques, and with that kind of players-to-DMs ratio, at times it's like everyone's just standing around Greatgaunt trying to "out-roleplay" each other in hopes of standing out from the crowd and getting some DM attention. So I keep coming back to Andrune. Andrune doesn't have problems like that. emoticon

But some of us might have to return the favor and give A Tale of Bone and Steel a try sometime. And wasn't it a huge rip-off that Global Network narrowly beat your forums for First Place in that recent Runboard contest? Look at all that boring white! And it's a social site. People go to Facebook for that kind of thing! Trés boring. And what does Second Place have to offer? Oh, just a gorgeous super-castle in the background, a rockin' titleboard, an involving world of fantasy and all the unlimited hours of entertainment that Neverwinter Nights embodies. Sure, Runboard. I can totally see how people would choose saying "Hi, my name is Mitch, I'm a mechanic and I like basketball" over "Hail, my name is Hath Kull, I'm a spearman from the nomadic tribes of the North and I seek vengeance against the lich who killed my father." Good call, Runboard. /sarcasm

So anyway, I just thought I'd get that rant off my chest. Welcome to Andrune. emoticon

And apologies if I wasn't on last night; I was tinkering on some new submissions for this topic, and since I couldn't decide on which flavor of witch or what size of dwelling, I decided to make all six! So expect a hut, a cottage and a manor for good witches and a hut, a cottage and a manor for wicked witches. Maybe having some generic yet witchy houses on this server could give Pike some interesting witches to hunt for a while. Gotta eat away at Darach's powerbase somehow, right? emoticon

And tinkering with witch houses also gave me a few new ideas for Ymir's Labyrinth as well as ideas for a new "castle wall maze" which promises to take maze-running in Neverwinter Nights to the third dimension! Stay tuned. emoticon

(And now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to sit here for a while and see if Runes' avatar explodes....)

Mucho kudos for Ever the Freshmaker on a glorious return from Nocomputerland, for surprising me with an improvised mini-event or two on Cumberland Road. I might have to give Jasselly her own RP thread just so I have somewhere to mention Corporal Harefoot, Granny Ashes, some merchant guild dude, a clump of ashes, a funny-looking diamond and a bit of off-the-cuff wetwork involving most or all of the above.

So kudos! emoticon
