Sorry to hear that. Perhaps it is because we are in a lull?

Hmmm, okay. Is this another of our long running games that people are losing interest in?

I'd say the lull is certainly part of it, but I don't know if it's the adventure, the pace, or something else, but I find myself routinely not following what we are supposed to do. I also then feel like I'm not participating correctly and perhaps making mistakes or leaving things up to other players, and it's just not been fun because of it. I mean, you guys are all awesome. I just find myself not being interested :-(

OWJ, sorry to hear that. At some point, I think every players has to take a little responsibility for the enjoyment in the game if it will work in the long run. So if you don’t feel it, then you don’t feel it. Trying to force it, generally makes things unworkable all the way around.

We are about to kick up the action as soon as things move forward, though. Not sure if that makes a difference or not.

Sorry to hear it, Hayole. I enjoyed playing with you. Good luck with everything and I'll be thinking of you when Rogue One comes out!

I will NPC Hayole once again since it is not that big of a deal for me. But that means someone else needs to help come up with better details on the plan, even if Hayole would be carrying them out. ;)

I figure you all are ready to move on, but I have been expecting either Teeva or Critias to decide on the distraction and plan now with OBJ leaving the game.

If you want Hayole to start giving military orders, then I can do that. But as players I did not think you would like me doing that… or is that what you all need to get going again?

Btw, just a reminder that we are not using Group Initiative in this game due to tactical considerations.

Also, for the Surprise Round, you all are technically triggering combat with your own attacks. So you can move into sight of the Gamorreans for free and then take standard actions. That was the point of the ruse, yeah?

So far I really don't have any actions for Teeva yet, though.

OK, i will correct. I thought this was a surprise round as defined in the book.

Yeah, I sorta figured that is what you thought. But the Surprise round lasts until you break it and start combat. Simply showing your faces would not trigger combat so I needed to clarify.

Holy cow, I don't have a character sheet for Crit. I must have forgotten to re-do it after I lost all my sheets.

Is it all right if I completely retool him? I remember thinking he would be more effective as a Noble 1/Soldier 3.

Yes, I think that is okay. The plan is to not keep Hayole around after we leave the planet and you all would be better served with Critias being a bit more combat oriented as well.

Okay, thanks, boss. I finished my sheet. He is quite a bit beefier now. Hopefully I remembered everything he was carrying.
