I asked Albert to lock the threads.

Postby Peewee » Wed Aug 08, 2007 8:50 am

Ok guys I asked Albert to lock the "Ralph, The Godfather of DnD in Miami," threads...

Enough is enough, I'm just going to wait for the new LARC which will cover things like this (and other things which have come up in other places arround the world.. you are not the only guys that create errata :wink: )

But before there are a few things I want to say

:D :D I want to give mad props to PJ, Rene, and Ramon.... :D :D

the campaign has givine you three a ton of sh*t, and in the end you came out swiging...

I have gained a new level of respect for PJ after all this, I can't count on one hand the ammount of times he has been bent over and scrwed, yet he keeps on going.

and one last thing, this is for everyone reading this...

If you don't want to play a campaign where your actions create reactions, a campaign where you can change the story line in one night, a campaign where, for good or bad, your actions count.... please go and play another campaign.

I would be happer with 6 players that play true to the world, then 50 that dont. I have put too many late nights into this world, lost too many friends, to see people wipe their ass with all the hard work we put into the flavor and story.

Remember its the story not the stats.... well at least for me it is.

Just play or don't play

Postby thetrickygnome » Wed Aug 08, 2007 9:54 am

I could've quit LA when I lost practically every damn item I owned
at 7th level without even taking a hit point of damage.

I could've quit when there was that blow up between me and Henry,
which to this day I feel is somewhat based on misunderstandings.

I've been frustrated with LA at many different times and on many
different levels. I've had my high moments ( getting the tail bracer
from Elabac ) and my low moments ( the first Battle of Semar BI )
but I still play the game. No game system is perfect.

* I like the story telling aspect of LA - it can be very engrossing and
LA, storywise, is probably the best written campaign.
* I don't like the blurry mess that is alignment, good and evil, and
right and wrong but sadly, it is a reflection of the real world. I just
wish it would not be so unclear all the time.
* I like the different racial choices one can have to play - dark-kin
and Ss'ressen are cool.
* a campaign that uses psionics - it's about time. Such a wonderful
resource sitting around not in use is kinda foolish. Plus LA has gone out
and added to the psionics options as well.
* I don't like the fact that the campaign allows players such a great
leeway in backstabbing and betraying one another.
* I'm not a fan of mods that are excessively political but that's my
personal preference.

So as you can tell here are things I like and don't like about LA but
the same things I dislike might be stuff that other people like. If we
all liked the same things and disliked the same things life would be
pretty boring and creativity would be non-existent. I still can't beleive
that some people would want their actions to have NO IMPACT on the
world they play in. If that is the case then it's all about certs & having
the ubber powerful PC to stroke your egos for these kinds of people &
that just makes you sad and shallow. In LG, the players have been
fighting the Reclamation battles for close to a year now and anyone
looking at the map can see that the Disputed Territories has shrunk
because of the numerous victories. A Living campaign that does not
take into account the players actions is not doing its job.

Like Peter said, if you don't like a campaign then don't play it. If you
find faults in it ( which is normal ) but see more right things about it
than wrong then play it until you find that you no longer have a spark
for it. If you love a campaign then enjoy the moment and contribute
where you can.

Sure LA makes me want to pull me hair out of my head and there are
times I'd like to have PVP so I can cleave off Matt or PJ's head but as
Peter said, if I didn't find a satisfactory level of enjoyment in it then I
would not still be playing it. Besides there are still SOOOOO many
Harvesters left to kill. ;)

On this point peter, your so full of shit- the cleric you made was to be a super cleric and you stopped playing your artificer that was a good unique character just to play a cleric that could turn on a dime just because I proved to you that my cleric could actually turn in arcanis after all the neutering you guys do to cleric turning(channeling), since like 90% of the clerics in arcanis couldn't turn a skeleton unless they repulsion them.
So at least admit you did it like many of us do and trying to be the perfect arcanis posterchild(you already are the posterchild anyway).

Your always coming up with cracked arcanis characters that most never see the light of day and I have many witness's that you do that peter so please don't make us think the violin story phrase that "I'm only about story- boo-who".

Please if you're not cracked out in Living Arcanis your ass won't get to enjoy the story because you'll be dead, 'nuff said.

Ralph, The Godfather of DnD in Miami,, I started playing a Cleric because we didint have any healers, something that saved our ass at the LA Delve at Origins.

Now thanks to starting a table of new PCs (Year 1), we will have two (maybe three) clerics... once they get to 5th level (which is what you end up at when you finish year 1) guess which character will be playing with those PCs... the Aritificer

Why do you think I posted for help rebuilding him.. I LOST him and need to redo all the log sheets.

Also my character did not start off as a cleric, remeber he was a holy champion of Illiir... don't you remember the original concept of the two characters, you know.. the boondok saints?

But we needed a cleric, no one was playing one.. want to look down and read the thread where we discuss it? want me to pull a link for you?

So yes, its about the story... I picked val'Assante.. you know its not the best bloodline for undead turning, so not the most powerful bloodline, but it is the best story bloodline for a cleric of Illiir... I could have picked a better bloodline but I didint... Also, I look the legionare feat.. you know what it gave me.. nada.. I already have free pro with the gladious (I love Illiir) and tower shield... I use full plate.

Next.......

Dude ramon's low level character is running arround with a 6 con.. yes 6

I think you are over reacting when it comes to the low stats, and thus gimping the turning aspect of the build.. but its your character and thus your call.

I will give it to Adolfo because when LA first came out and Henry Lopez was judging games at Outland all Adolfo wanted to play was a dark-kin cleric of Larissa with "naughty" tentacles.
