OK I downloaded AIM and got a screen name, which is "prismshard77".
Please add me to your buddy list. Also, please let me know what your AIM screen names are, if you haven't already.

I'd also like to know whether or not you are planning on making it to the setup meeting Wednesday. Please let me know either way.

Well MrGrenadine helped me try to get a test run for BG, but it didn't go so well. We were able to chat with AIM and got Ventrilo running, but no luck establishing a connection with BG. Hopefully I can get this to work, and I've posted a topic in the Customer Support forum asking for some advice. It looks like we may not be ready to start this upcoming Monday, but hopefully we can get up and running in time.

sorry i missed the meet up.
was considering giving up my children

did you guys do the port forwarding on your routers?

Just the GM needs to do port forwarding. But if a player does it, at least he can host for the other person to prove that it will work once it's configured correctly. :lol:

On the bright side, this sort of thing is exactly why it was a good idea for Prismshard to hold a test session prior to the game. To work out these potential pitfalls ahead of game day. So, kudos for that.

Edit: It may be premature to call off the Monday game, if this is the only reason. After all, you could be up and running in under 5 minutes.

OK, got the port forwarding set up properly(I think). Hopefully that was the only issue. We need to do another test run at some point, to make sure we can get this up and running before the Monday session. If this was the only technical issue, I think we can get started in time.

Also, I have not received any emails of character sheets yet, so please get those to me as soon as you can.

I think you can see my email address from my profile here, but just in case you can't it's:

Good news!
Misfits was online today and we had a successful test run with BG. I'd like to get a chance to connect with MrGrenadine and Pheznik before the actual game night, but as long as we do that and you get your characters emailed to me by Sunday night, we can go ahead with the Monday night game this upcoming Monday.

Also note that I do not have any floating licenses, so please purchase a player license at least 24 hours before game time if you can.

by Pheznik
well this is where i bounce out.

sorry but i had no plans on paying to play

even more so when this

is free, just takes a "newer" card to run it.

you guys have fun. and feel free to flame me if you want, 'prolly won't check my messages anyway.

Good news/ Bad news

Good news: A successful run-through with Misfits! Yay!

Bad news: Pheznick backing out. Crap!

So where does this leave us? I'd like to keep the momentum going, and still do the test to make sure I can login to your game, Prism Shard, (email or AIM me anytime to set up a time). I'd also like to try recruiting a couple more players, if you guys are ok with that.

Let me know.


p.s. No response about the Ventrilo server, yet.

p.p.s. I'm waiting to speak to the group before finalizing my character. I have a sorcerer, a rogue and a barbarian ready to go--just want to see which one will be most needed and/or will synergize best with the others. (Or other, rather--since it looks like for now its just you and me, Misfits!)

Well, I'm thinking that unless we get more players, which doesnt seem likely in the short term, that I'll have each of you play 2 characters.

Cheap, free-loading, PC bastard.

I hereby vow to never GM a game for another player character unless they pay for all of my game licenses, books and modules, miniatures, beer, dinner, and companionship from the Emperor's Club.

GM's need to start having some standards!

Actually I think I'll just start a new thread. Feel free to delete and/or archive the old one.

Well, tonight's supposed to be the first session, and everything's ready except for one thing: I have not received any character sheet info from Misfits. I hope you have your characters made up, but if you don't you have a little extra time. My daughter is being a little fussy this evening, since she's been sick lately, and it looks like it'll take a bit longer to get her into bed(she's 15 months old). I'll be online as soon as I can.
