Next Epic Battle after EoT (Part II)
« on: April 02, 2021, 10:58:17 PM »
Hello everyone,

The Eye of Terror is a wrap.  It's left quite a bodycount in its wake.
At present we have the following active characters:
Soul Reaver
Jharm
Gulgrim
Kitharsis
Cameron (once we figure out how to work his character back into the plot)
Daccio (unsure what character to use)

Danyael is around but hasn't yet confirmed to me if he's still up for continuing on the boards or not, I'll update this post once he does

We had previously decided that the next Board Battle would be run by Jharm (http://administorum.com/index.php?topic=600.0) but admittedly that was back in 2018, so I wanted to double check to make sure that desire is still there

Jharm, are you still keen to be the next Epic Board Battle host (you've got my vote if you're still keen)?
Does anyone else want to throw their hat in the ring?

EDIT: Updated list of participants

I haven't made a final decision on this yet. The Eye of Terror campaign didn't end the way I actually wanted it to, so there's some serious work I'd need to do to get Cameron from where he is now to where I'd want him to be to keep playing him. We'll see if I'm up for it.

Edit: This is regarding whether or not I'll be participating in the next Board Battle. I have no desire whatsoever to be a Battle Host again. Just wanted to clarify.

Initially I was planning on continuing with running the next Epic BB.  Recently though I have realized/come to accept that while i can come up with grand stories in my head, actually translating that to anything beyond that point though....not so much.  Therefore I am more then likely going to pass on running the next battle.  Jharm will all but certainly still be departing from the Companions, with me bringing in a new character.

That's a real shame, I was looking forward to seeing what Jharm's backstory had on offer, but it's up to you.  Maybe there's some way to work some of the ideas into a future a Epic BB?

Anyone else?  I know Kitharsis was also considering hosting an Epic BB (and recent events might give some urgency to whatever he had planned to do?)

Hallooooo

I am still alive. I am debating joining the new epic BB, though with what character I am unsure.

Well, not discounting entirely that Jharm wont return to call upon his old friends at some point (basically if i pass on this, might change my mind later and have him return to still do the story)

The more I consider it, the more I think that I can handle this. Writing for a single character is much easier than writing responses to everyone, and if I need to take a break it wouldn't delay the entire game. So I'll likely be in.

It's going to take some effort to get Cameron ready. I'm hoping that there's a bit of a time skip between the end of the last battle and the start of the new one. Because of the way EoT ended and because we're not going into Jharm's battle yet, I have to scrap and rework some of the plans I had for Cameron's character development. I'll start working on that ASAP.

Hmm that is right....was going to kinda use Jharms thing as a method to bring Cameron back into the group....kinda forgot that lol....

That's awesome.  We're still sorting out logistics so you've got time to work on a character.  But if you want to join you'll be welcome.
