we may in fact be 1-2 players shy for group #2; so, technically not too late.

Really?  Sorry to ask but while I have very limited experience with D&D, I'd like to throw my hat in, but what options do I have for pre gen characters?  And what pre gen characters have already been chosen for the second group?  I'm hoping to fill in a gap but also to try and get an idea of what's open and see where my interests might lie.  I've watched plenty of Critical Role campaign 1 and 2, (MOLLY DIED!  DAMN THAT CIRCUS PERFORMER FOR HIS UNTIMELY DEMISE!), and again, I DO have some very small experience, but I am always open to play and learn more.  Hope that helps guys and gals.  ;D

I was actually spoiled by accidentally stumbling across a bit of fan music someone had put together, making it rather obvious that something bad had happened to Molly.  Still, I'm sorry for having ruined that for you my Lady Lunarius.   :-[

I sometimes have to step away for a bit every now and again too, but writing down or at least memorizing the time you stop on and going back a few minutes to refresh your memory of events could be something you could try.  That aside, episode 26 Found and Lost is the one to dread.

group #2 still has a spot!

To everyone: I'm sorry I haven't gotten the IC up just yet; there's been a bit going on! Should be out tomorrow no problem though.

Coolness!  It's currently one in the morning so I'll likely be unable to do anything tonight, but hopefully after the Homecoming parade in the afternoon I'll be free to do some stuff.  See ya!

I'm guessing it's a bit too late for me to jump in on this?  I've wanted to play some more D&D to better understand the game(as I only played once, and I don't actually count that).  As it is, I have been reading the core books, and have already gotten through the PHB (ik, I am insane) so I should have some idea of how to play, but I would like to have a more firsthand understanding.

Two of the three groups never really started, and the group I was in only got one round of posts done before our DM didn't post again.  So no, there's plenty of room, but no one's DMing this anymore from what I can see unless Chul says otherwise.

Geesh, I thought it was ambitioned, kept half an eye on it, but that's sads to hear. Perhaps I should do something like it for pathfinder adventuring(Which is just D&D with extra steps), though my methods are quite different...

I only just got the core rulebook yesterday to try a Strange Aeons module with a bunch of other noobs and such, so I'd at least be willing to give Pathfinder a try.  :D  Since it's pretty obvious every D&D game I've ever tried to become a part of ends up dying or never properly starting, I might have to jump ship if I ever want to actually LEARN a system game at this rate.

I mean... I have seen system games succeed, but yeah. Really need to whip people into shape a little more..

To me, the character creation, especially with all the options pathfinder offers is part of the roleplay in a way all onto itself, so if I hear of people wanting to learn of the system, I usually try and include the creation process -into- the campaign itself. You can start pathfinder as a purely freeform game and slowly introduce the rules, after all.

I get people get busy, I get people have issues with real life and all that, but it is EVERY GAME I've ever tried to join that had a System element involved.  EVERY GAME.  I'm not even kidding, it's a fucking curse for some reason and it's one I'm tired of lol.

How does that even work Frog?  You have to have a character to actually PLAY a game.

Damn.  That's unfortunate.  But I was thinking it would be cool to have a game for players new to systems running here.  Maybe something that's set up to be DI/DO would work nicely.  I don't really see anyone wanting to commit to that as a DM though.  Maybe something like a module, where the DM could change too if needed would be a good idea?
