Galdor,

Thank you for the hearty welcome and words of encouragement. Today we Raiders of the Lost Forge are little more than a dream and a healthy portion of enthusiasm. With some good fortune and careful planning we hope to join the illustrious ranks of seasoned adventurers that the Fellowship of the Forge so proudly represents.

Well met and may our paths cross soon.

Sorry I've been slow to reach out to everyone on this. I'm traveling for my Uncle's 70th birthday this weekend and all of my time has been spent with family. I'll reach out to everyone who sent me their email via the survey in the next day or two.

Just a heads up that this is still happening. I've been busy with work and family and haven't had time to reach out for more detailed planning yet. I'm going to keep my pledge at this level to reserve the table since I have faith that a group will come together for some gaming goodness.

I was originally thinking it would happen around Thanksgiving or Christmas. I have to rule Thanksgiving out, so either sometime around Christmas (not the holiday, but sometime that week) or another time during the year. I was hoping to avoid a separate flight out since I'm usually in NY during the holidays, but am open to the idea of planning the game for a different date.

Hi All!

Sorry for the long silence. It took some time to get things squared away on my end and for DF after the Kickstarter.

Based on input from members here and my own situation, I'm strongly considering a weekend in October or one of the last two weekends in December for the game. I'm assuming these would work for Stefan, but will need final confirmation from him once we move ahead.

So, with that said, is there a strong preference among the forum members on the date? I'm going to email those who shared their email addresses with me via the survey as well.

I had to laugh a bit at the survey. I thought it would be an in-depth interview. Age, playing style, class choice...

obi wan - I need a pilot with a ship.
Han Solo - Im a pilot with ship.
obi wan - You're hired!

Well, if it worked to save the universe once....

Just messin with you ;)

Lol, so true Cody. I'm approaching this with the idea that it will all come together beautifully with a little luck and a little planning. I guess you could say that I'm using the force. But I get the feeling that the DF community is a good bunch of people, so my spirits are high. That and I've played with strangers at a number of conventions and never regretted it and this is going to be a much more spectacular game than you'll find at any convention.

Heads up to anyone following along here, we're homing in on a final date for the game. Right now it appears that Oct 4th is the most likely candidate. If you were interested before and unsure if you could make the dates that were previously thrown out, jump on the survey and get in touch with me so that I can add you to the list. Spots are filling quickly!

Now that we're moving full steam ahead towards the game and the logistics are mostly out of the way, let's shift the discussion towards characters.

Since all my old books were lost many moons ago when I left for college, I went searching for an AD&D Player's Handbook and picked up a reprint since the reviews for it were good:
www.amazon.com/gp/product/0786962437/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i02?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I'm highly in favor of everyone building and discussing characters in advance so that we can squeeze in as much game play as possible on the day of. I suspect that everyone in this group will be comfortable with that option, but if not, speak up and we can help you out and/or come up with another solution.

I think the first few things we need direction on from our DM is:
1. How will we generate ability scores? I've used everything from "3d6 in order" to "4d6 drop the lowest assign in any order", to "point buy" over the years and am happy with whatever Zaltar allows.
2. What level should we build our characters at?
3. What equipment are we allowed, both magical and mundane?

The cavern maw beckons us into the deep. Now is the time to prepare for the arduous descent before us as we go in search of the Lost Forge.
