This game has been a long time coming now so I would hate to miss out when it actually kicks off.
In any case I just wanted to say that I will be going away during the upcoming week and will returning next Sunday. Because of this I will not be able to answer any e-mails or messages during this time.

The first turn has run!

Which of these pretenders to the throne will find themselves in control of the capital and all it's resources?

Take it off him, take it off him. He can't manage a wife, three kids AND a kingdom too. You are asking too much of him. Look let me help with that burden, I will see to the kingdom for you. :P
Now WHY did it do THAT!

I think you get it at the end of the turn, so the AIM change would fail anyway...

A shame that the stories idea for this game was discintinued. I enjoyed mine. I have had fun playing in character though. Definitely something that I will add in future games as a GM.

I intend to write up stories for all the turns, I just haven't had time to. I'm sure all the written stories can be put on a page eventually.

My apologies guys. This moving house business is taking up a lot of time, but should be done next weekend. After that i can start adding my own back ground story lines i've been thinking off. :D

I've uploaded all the stories and absolutely great story lines they are!

Especially Vortan's epos is well worth reading!

So go over to the site and have a great read people!

*sigh* didn't get Kings Landing like I should have and the resultant eff increase. Gone to pot this game. I think we should call it a draw.

This game needs to be paused, reversed a turn, or just canceled, until Sal returns from whatever little hiatus he's gone on. I'd also like to know why players are dropping like flies.

Paused it.

I think the problem is that there are too many X-games going on. We need standard games to keep players interested, with the occasional X-game thrown into the mix.

And I am still NOT PLAYING LM, holiday starts 19th AUGUST 2007 for one week.

SO ... Calidus ... it will be quiet that week because I am not here. Its been a Vortanless void in recent days because ... quite frankly ... I could not be bothered with the bad attitude and back biting that seems to be WOK.

I am re-assessing my gaming priorities and will see whether I return after the holidays or not. I am not sure that I need so much hassle from something that is supposed to be done for R&R. Still no doubt Cal at least will be pleased if I do choose not to return personally. Cant speak for the other two though.
Now WHY did it do THAT!
