    No idea where she got Jobe from at all Ted? And while I think of it, are you ever not on the phone?

    I'll answer that after I take this call.

    As to Jobe - she was surprised to learn there was a book of the OT called that, so it's not there. Just plucked it out of thin air, she says.

    Note from previous post that Al referenced that I finally got a son named Bleys! Always wanted one.

    [​IMG] Here's a recent-ish pic of me, taken nearly 3 years ago, and before anyone asks, my Native American Indian name is Chief Tans In Bands. ;)

    How many more names do you need to use up?

    Growing up, I considered naming my son Jerimiah (Jerry for short obviously), I'm not religious, but I did like the name. As it turned out, I only have 1 daughter and no inclination to add to that number, so this post's content is mostly moot...

    What does your game day setup look like these days? Here's mine. If 15 year old me knew one day I'd be playing TTRPG's on a whiteboard, with the maps projected directly onto it, and all the maps and encounters preloaded into a VTT (Fantasy Grounds in this case), and scented (Cantrip Candles) candles for certain environments I think I wouldn't believe it.

    I thought so, I figured that if the players did something that changed the battlefield in some way, whether it be by barricading a doorway, or causing excessive damage resulting in difficult terrain, I could draw the changes onto the whiteboard. :D

    Old school... I like it... Not for my games, but I do like it.

    If I could figure out why the open port that Fantasy Grounds requires to work keeps closing itself on my laptop, and work out how to stop it from doing so, I might be tempted to DM some games for people here... cause that would be awesome.

    I'm sure a number of us would be just fine with play by post... :)

    If Allyx DM'd a game my dwarf, (Grannit Coldforge) would be first to show up.

    I've been using FGII for years now, full license and all. ;)

    Oh boy oh boy oh boy, I think I figured out my Port Forwarding problem, I had to set a static IP address to make it work (haven't tested it out with an actual connection yet).

    Does Co8 have a discord channel set up at all? I seem to remember someone posting about it a while back, I'll do a search in a bit.

    Do we have enough interest to start up a group? Send me a message if you're interested in joining, and mention whether you have at least Standard Licence for Fantasy Grounds ('cause I don't have an Ultimate Licence yet) and what times and days you'd be available to join a game.

    My schedule is sufficiently uncertain that I'd prefer play-by-post, actually. Asynchronicity FTW!
