OOC: Out of Game Discussions

The headline in the newspaper reads 'Huge Hounds Haunt Hockomock'. The police have closed the case as only being coyotes and a crazy farmer. But you know better when it comes to stories that don't seem quite right. Where do these black hounds come from, what do they want (besides their nightly chicken dinner)? And how do you stop them?

As a reminder if you perform a skill and are not using a bonus dice and succeed. Mark your skill with a + sign to help you remember to roll for these after the scenario.

Do we still mark it if we had a bonus die but didn't need it in order to succeed, or only if we didn't roll a bonus die at all?

Only if you have no bonus dice. If we were live, you roll all the dice together, so you don't really know which is the bonus or now.

This is just going by the new rules, still learning them.

I'm back, Thank you for NPCing me - I'm satisfied with Porter's reaction to the hound and listening check so I'll wait for another player to chime in.

welcome back, yea since you didn't have a gun, you were just observing. You did NOT go temporary insane because you failed your Int. check. If you passed you would have suffered some insanity.

Feel free to jump right in, don't feel like you need to wait for someone else.

Hey Ben, I think I should drop from this game. I can't keep up with the rate things are posted here and it isn't really fair to you or the other players.

Of course it is your choice, but right now if you don't answer, I just assume you are following the crowd.

It's up to you, but I'm okay with your current participation, I don't think it hurts anyone.

I agree with Ben, the rest of us should be able to keep things moving along. Some rolls only require one of us to be successful, for example.

Okay, I appreciate that. I know you are trying to playtest the adventure and I didn't want to hold anything up cause sometimes I post and look the next day and there are 10+ posts more so I thought I might be slowing things down.

I will try to keep up and if I am ever holding something up and haven't posted in a day or two please just have Dr. Porter do the most logical thing (curiosity permitting) and don't worry how I will react.

The game is interesting and I don't want to slow things down

Crack, I don't think you're slowing anyone down. We are basically just here to have fun (more or less), so I think I'm speaking for everyone when I say that I don't think anyone is too bothered by your pstkf rate. Heck, there's times when even I've missed a step or two. No worries!

I have a convention for the next 3 days, so not sure if I'll be able to post at all until Sunday evening.

Feel free to keep going.

I'll be out of town tomorrow, running Call of Cthulhu in fact. This adventure as well as one other. Should be a blast.

Back, Wow we had a great time.

We played 'A Cry for Help' and they thought that was great.
then we played 'Hockomock Hounds' and they really loved this one.

Then we played, 'Flying Terror' but we really didn't have enough time for this one. But we squeezed it in.

OMG, we had so much fun.
