Hello,

So the lovely Almanac is off to be printed, so you will all get to see it soon smile.gif

Dead line for the January Almanac is 24th December for all things except the final dawn.

Points apps are at a trickly but coming in and going out. So you can all plan ahead:

15th November - I am desking (I know its a shock) so if you need cards signed, apps looked at, 10k checks done or anything like that then this is a good day to try and catch me.

Currently my last day at the caves before xmas is 12th December. So you'll need to get points apps in by 10th to be certain of getting them before xmas.

And a question for everyone on the Almanac. What do people think of World Points and how they are shown? Good/Bad? Suggestions are welcome.

My current thinking is I probably need to change the way Faiths are shown because each city is going to acquire its own local ones, and teh way its set up makes htis pretty difficult.

Hello,

Quick gsm post this week.

Almanac out (thanks Tim!). Final dawn details in the Almanac and coming soon to the boards, thanks to Fromant, Huw, Sam, Ryan, and Istead for helping out so it works as a plan.

I'm working on campaigns/events for next year. So if you are up for reffing one/some let me know (look back a few posts for details) as I'd like to be able to have a couple of campaigns running each month as far as June for the January Almanac.

So into November...

Halloween went well (ish), and may of set a new party killing record (yes even more than the xmas single length) if we'd bothered to keep count (oops).

A few upcoming things for people to plan for:

2 party kotl on the 22nd, Monsters would be great smile.gif

28th Sellaville day. Still spaces on the lows and more monsters would always be great.

5th December - player and monster spaces are there for grabbing.

And don't forget 12th December Xmas drinks.

On other things if you fancy reffing a mini-campaign at the beginning of next year (up to June) then please let me know, I'm hoping to have something in place by the end of the month.

Hello another week.

As a reminder can people send points apps to:
Pointsapp@labyrinthe.co.uk

I check this regularly so they will be picked up.

Upcoming dungeons are filling up nicely but as always more monsters would be good for them all.

750 day is doing well, again needing monsters. For those that haven't seen the plan is to have lots of briefs going on and for people to choose the sections they do. It is possible, if we get enough monsters we'll go to a 4th party, but it will then be limited to 40ish players probably.

Final dawn is up for bookings, so if you are interested get booking. The plan of an almost 1 to 1 ratio of players to monsters must appeal to people smile.gif

So firstly sorry about the lack of updates recently, real life has been getting in the way of stuff.

Lucky Dips seemed to go down pretty well, as did tombola, which is good.

The final Dawn is coming up and lacking players. The rules are on the boards, but broadly its play one day monster one day. The event has been capped at 24 players now on both days. So if you are free it's well worth playing. It will be a great experience to be in an almost 1 on 1 situation.

Points apps are still up to date, and to remind people:

email them to the points app address Sam forced into my signature on Kats orders smile.gif

I'll email when I get a points app and normally it will go to Duncan that weekend for scanning etc.

And in exciting news..........







yes exciting news..........



















keep scrolling......






















The books are formatted!!!!!!!!!!!! The pain of indexing and everything is done (thanks to Witts and Washbag).
There isn't a date for release yet, as printing still needs to be sorted out but hopefully there'll be some news soon.

On other things.

So the Almanac for January is being done. If you have something for it, or an ask the gsm question for it then let me know. (use lee@labyrinthe.co.uk)

I'll hopefully have a list of campaigns, themed days and some one of special event days in the next couple of weeks.

And finally if you fancy reffing one off open dungeons below 1k next year let me know when you are free, what level you fancy that would be great smile.gif

Sorry I've been quiet for a while, it's all been crazy.

Almanac is in the last stages, so if you have anything for it please send it over asap, including ask the gsm questions.

Points apps were upto date until xmas. However between final dawn and today I've had over 30 sheets in, so they may not all get done by tomorrow, sorry.

A list of upcoming campaigns should be going up at some point today, there's a few theme days, special events, and general stuff in it.

And now the final dawn is done I'll be back to Realm of Glass when the Almanac is done, so if you haven't already please send me stuff on Noble Houses if you are the head of a house. I'll be chasing people again for bits on the Senate and the like as well.

So my erratic posts continue, sorry.

Points apps are running up to date. I'm hoping to be up to date with rebirths and items by tonight, sorry about the delay.

Almanac is almost done. It's got final dawn stuff, some new monster points bits and general stuff in it.

Bonuses for monstering for campaigns have been sorted and will be in the almanac, I'll also be putting them on the boards on Monday evening smile.gif

Almost, sort of, back to a weekly post smile.gif

Points apps up to date, despite the efforts of some people to break me. The last fornight has seen myths levels of apps coming in.

Almanac done and off to Martin for editting, sorry about the delay.

I only have 3 things on my gsm list (the lowest of the year) so should be up to date this week, which means a new set of monster point tables will be out.

On other news campaigns all up and seem to be running well. Towards the end of february I will again be abusing people into reffing more later in the year smile.gif

As advance warning I will not be at the caves on the 13th/14th February so no points apps will be down, sorry.

Not much else from me really.

Hello,

So a quick update (as I have a rare moment of not work).
Points apps are ticking along, and unless there is a sudden Thursday Surge (it's becoming common) they should all be done this weekend.

As advance warning come the next guild boards check I'm going to look at how long stuff has been on their and how manky it is looking. So it might be worth updating things and getting them looking nice again smile.gif

Dead lines and bits:
Next Almanac - Any ask the GSM questiosn, ref stuff, or the like please get them to be by around March 16th.
WP's - If you have a contract that generates world points (or anything similar) please email me what you want to do with them by the 30th march. include the info on contract number and stuff.

For Alamanc bits please use the lee@ email below.

Sorry about the late notice but as people probably noticed I didn't get to print apps this week, and am not down this weekend at all. Sorry real life got in the way.

Other bits:
Almanac is moving along if you have stuff for it (questions, ref bits, stuff from governors/senate/whatever) please get it to me by easter weekend.

Realm of glass is also moving along. If you have noble houses (as in status purchased) and haven't sent them in then please do so, or entries will be pretty light/bland.

Victims, er I mean campaign refs. I'm looking for 2-3 for later in the year. 3 or 4 part mini-campaigns, level wise ideally something starting at 500, a 1500 and 3k.


And a quick update thanks to Sonny the apps from last week have made it down to the caves so should be with Duncan for checking and stuff.

Firstly sorry about the lack of GSM posts, March was a totally crazy month with real life.

So onto good news.
Campaigns seem to be mostly populer and doing well, which is good. If anyone fancies reffing one in the second half of the year please let me know (lee@labyrinthe.co.uk).

In a not so secret way the plots for this years final dawn are out there. It is not the plan to have a big sign saying this is the final dawn plot, you'll have to all work it out yourself smile.gif So if you are planning on playing it (and details should be coming out in the next couple of months) then it's worth paying attention to the write ups that go on the boards and in the Almanac.

Points apps. A couple of things. As people may of seen there has been a slight delay in people getting replies. This is (as some people will have seen) due to the massive piles of points apps people are sending in recently.
Also when saving points apps could you please check formatting. It is very common for people to save a sheet and it is a two page document because page two is blank. It might seem odd but printing 10-15 blank pages a week is annoying, and slows me down.

Due to some delays if you still have stuff for the Almanac you can get it in by Friday and it will still make it. This includes if you have completed contracts that generate CP's.

For some advance warning I am (unreasonably) on Holiday for a week in June. I'll remind people closer to the time but it will mean a week of no points apps being processed.

So it seems work hates me and makes me do it, booo!!

First sorry about the delay on to ask the gsm questions, for some reason I totally missed them. All done now.

The Almanac is in the final stages of formatting. Again sorry about the delay but we had a few changes to sort out getting into it.

I'd like to remind people:

Points apps go to the points app address in my signature below.
Please try and format them so they print properly, and I don't end up with a page of just empty box.

I will be starting on the next Almanac at some point, and if you want to get stuff in it I need it by the first week of July please.

There have been lots of points apps lately (not all labyman) so if you want them for a weekend try and get them in early (I'm printing tonight, so they will be given to duncan this weekend hopefully).

I can't think of much else to say really, other than I will be having a holiday in mid-june for a week so points apps won't get processed, sorry.

Lee

As requested a bit on each book and what my view of the system is. As a basic overview the changes are based on peoples points apps. Where people have applied for things a lot something has been added in. This means that popular classes have more than rarely played ones.
This isn’t a one off project either. My hope is to keep track of things and then in 5 years or so produce a new version of the books with even more things. Now the initial project has been done it should be a lot easier to keep things up to date.

So first changes in the books:

Before everything magic and spirit mix, priests can have spells on them and wizards miracles. Enjoy.

Warriors –
So first big change is Paladins, Grey Knights and AP’s have had their spiritual buy as weakened. The oddity of being in/not in the priest bracket has also been removed.
Cost of stamina’s/grades of strength has been changed so they are all the same.
Beyond that it is mostly additions. Armour damage reductions have opened up to be available to anyone wearing master crafted armour at the lower level, and going up if you wear heavier armour. Some additions to battle-masters have been included as well.
Enhanced weapon mastery shield now needs distancing.

Priests –
Very little has changed. Stunning power has been altered a bit. In general it is mostly additions and upgrades.
The big change is that a bless on a shield means it doesn’t block pure spirit damage any more.
Yes Steal Life essence and instant degen are gone.

Wizards –
Warlocks have changed a lot as mentioned.
More big spells for players to have fun with.
An ability to cast fleeting stopping effects has been added as well.
And an in general publishing of a lot of peoples points apps.


Scouts –
Assassins have been shifted to be able to get good damage grades but rely on backstab. A lot of the abilities also give an assassin a good reason to stay bracket pure, or go warrior, rather than going wizard or priest.
Some new tendency’s have been added, and upgrades to Dabbler.
While there are some boosts for Pathfinders/others in truth there hasn’t been very much to use as a base to produce upgrades as people don’t play them to high levels a lot.

Neuronics –
Pens (and other neuronic damage) have been changed so they now inflict 6/6 to the head (and so on).
Emotion restrictions have been lessened on classes.
A few new neuronics are out there as well.

Druids –
A mass change. First to make it readable, and provide idea’s about characters types you might want to play. And as a way of trying to create a class that fits somewhere in the system.
The easiest thing to do, in all honesty, is read it as there is a lot to explain.

Classes –
More classes, and a shift in immunities to bring them down to table 3. Also some of the warrior only abilities have been opened up to other people.
Potion restrictions have been added to clairvoyent and para-psychic.

Races –
Some more races based on the popular Elder fey/Primal Soul patterns.
Some adjustments to published races as well (Dwarves having an item restrictions, height restrictions going).
All of the races from the source books have also been drawn into one place.
Elder fey now has a prep time for druidic heal benefit. Also the fear is made clear as level of resistance.


So what next? Well lets do a bit about statting by ref’s.
It got a bit harder. With the addition of bigger spells/miracles more thought is needed when setting what a part can cast.
With the addition of “fleeting” stopping effects for wizards it has also become more reasonable to set war cries once in a while to stop a single wight being as destructive as it would have been previously.
Also it is a case of being sensible with statting immunities. Giving everything immunity to backstab would be pretty dull and boring, so just don’t do it. Some parts with it where but makes sense yes, but if every wave monster has it then it would be pretty dull.
I think it can all be summed up with stat sensibly and it will be fine.

Last, but not least, what is my vision.
Well the key thing is still to be able to play a character without needing points apps. Which I hope can be done now. The other key is to give people enough scope to be able to play what sort of character they want to.
As it has been mentioned bracket purity is not the golden key to ultimate power. Indeed what it mostly does is let you get somewhere a bit quicker and cheaper than other people. Will you end up being a bit better at your chosen area? Yes, but people that don’t lock themselves in a bracket will come close and have other ways to make up the shortfall.
