I am also looking for a DM, campaign, and group (all three would be best :D) with similar times in the evenings during the week. I presently have one character approved:
Ruban Fletcher, Male Human, Ranger, Level 1.
Additionally (to help the makeup of the adventuring group) I have several other characters as hip-pocket characters. I look forward to hearing back about any potential adventures.

It's ever the same. I will be back DMing soon, anyone caught doing this and reach that time out, will lose their turn for the sake of the other players. Keep up in these scenes folks, other characters may depend on yours.

Stam's Stupendous Sorting 'Stravaganza

Postby Stam » Thu Jun 14, 2012 8:15 pm

While the DMs fix the site, how about us players fix the rules?

...err, no, that's not what I intended. Really. Yes, really.

The Rules forum, as anyone could possibly tell after an hour or so of browsing, is old. We've discussed things about the rules that game designers probably didn't intend, and made custom items that fit theme or mechanic needs of players at the time. It's gotten old enough that DMs who made rulings several years ago might not have that information in the front of their mind or find the thread when looking at a related item.

The site's Search function has also never been particularly good at picking stuff out, it hasn't indexed some of the real older stuff, and most of us just don't have the time to smack it into working when we're looking something up.

So! Here's me kicking the Laziness Dragon out and working on a project that I've had in mind for the last month or two. Below I'll create the framework of the index and start sorting some of the stuff - but you all can help if you want! Post up names and links from the Rules forum the same way I'll be doing them, and I'll incorporate them into the index piece by piece.

We can even turn it into a little race. Can the DMs fix the site before we get finished...? ;)

Agreed, to all of it.

The only thing I can add is that if you suddenly have to leave the computer to take care of something, let the rest of us know so we know not to wait 20 minutes for your character to answer a question. Otherwise please don't multi-task so much that you slow down the scene (rp or adventuring) for others.
I am not a complete idiot. Some parts are missing.
