OOC: It's hard to understand your confusion. If you had looked at the Village Map for more than one second. The areas that I mention in my last IC post are all clearly labeled on it. And you should know exactly where the two female members of Fenian's Family are at. Which is examining:

Hopefully I'm not stepping out of line here. If I am, I apologize.

But ericthered is the Gamemaster (GM) for Warriors of Haunden. I believe ericthered is diplomatically trying to remind you of that fact

Typically in GURPS or, for that matter, virtually any role-playing game I've played, the GM's word is law. And in most cases, a player only had the right to say what their character is doing (although they may offer suggestions.) And the GM can overrule what a player says their character is doing. ("Your character planned to walk straight to the village as usual. But he didn't know that....")

And as for the Village Map, I've looked at it for more than one second. But in regard to what's going on here, I am confused.

I'm leaving the game. It has become to much of a source of frustration for me to enjoy. Best of luck to you all. Feel free to run Fenian as a NPC.

I'm sorry that you plan to leave. IF you change your mind, I for one would welcome you back.

It appears I posted this for a different game, but never told you guys I would be slow this past week:

I will be slow posting this week and next week. We'll see how much I do or don't do, but warriors of hondon takes priority since it just barely started. Not great timing but that's when it happened. I'll try to get you guys a couple times though.
I didn't give you guys a heads up, and the week was even more intense than anticipated. Sorry.

Understood; mistakes happen. I was most concerned that you were OK.

It looks like everyone has rolled on the roller! (except the GM, but I can see it and I've used it before).

By the book, "Luck: Once per hour of play, you may reroll a single bad die roll twice and take the best of the three rolls!"

So how does Luck work in Warriors of Haunden?

If I had to guess based on the other PBFs Eric is running:
-> Session = 3 Hours
-> 1 Hour = 20 Posts per Player

Therefore: 1 Hour in Haunden is 60 posts.

Not quite... (though that may be accurate for lost in dreams).

"session" is a less objective measure, but I've seen posts saying the "predicted" session is four hours, so we can use that.

By that an hour is 40 posts. The session would be 160 posts, if we cared. Thanks for bringing up Session, because that let me know what to search for.



I should probably type this up on my blog. Its a problem I've worked with for a while and it comes up quite a bit.
