I like to give a big rave to Kelvos. I must admit, I was so surprised that I didn't notice what dm who came by, but I was lucky another player noticed. Even though the interaction was briefly, it had a huge impact on me, because it was fun and motivating in our search for materials in Ferrell. Thank you so much.

An in character write up will be coming, but I wanted to be sure and say thank you for a very cool and amazing event today!! Everything from the Phoenix to the griffins to the spot checks and the Dragon… Very very very neat experience!! ( not to mention seeing a taste of the plane of fire made my little elementalist very happy ^_^)


I love the fact we could keep bits of the egg and that more is coming!

Yeah, it was pretty amazing to realize that the normal dungeon thing was actually a surprise DM event, too. I didn't even catch on until the end!

BIG SHOUT OUT


For all the fun and time you put into the False moon plot, enjoyed it greatly even the getting tripled teamed by 3 end bosses.

thanks man

Okay, a bit more detailed rave about how the big story was for me.

So, I stumbled across this whole thing with my ultra-dumb therapy character Buuralg who I just made to relax and vent stress with some hack and slash, and somehow ended up in tons of these sessions, wanting to see how it would go. Since I was on lowest end of epics from the start and not a caster, I was having huge trouble just surviving from the start. I died in every session I could get into into, sometimes two or three times, had hard time hitting things and died sometimes just running next to the monsters. Also was blind most of the fights. :D That said, I had super fun time as an 'observer', just watching the 'more epic' heroes do their stuff through the months, even if I missed the last boss fight's end because I got sudden family duty right at the moment it went down.

The epic feeling was even more important because due to my east euro time zone this is the only Big Plot I've ever seen on Avlis since they usually happen by the time I'm sleeping or out of the house, and this euro friendly time made seeing a different side of Avlis possible.

All in all, just huge thanks for me for being able to see all this.

Also the things I liked:
- Unique monster cadre
- How it was happening all around Avlis
- Really epic ending

Didn't like: the spells that blind you :(

Seriously, that plot was totally awesome. A good dose of hack and slash, some investigation, the fun of being a great group together, and the promesses of some death here and there lol. I been in this from day one and my character took great pride in being in something of that importance. It is not every day you can literally save the world!

Thanks BRF for the time and efforts in this. You are an execptionnal DM and an equally exceptionnal player and human behing that screen.

Good point: the mystery, the total thrill when carrying an olivine, the specially designed foes, the loots! And all the rest except:

Bad point: the darkness effect lol. And .... Not been able to copy the form of the final boss! He was too awesome lol

I loved the fact that each week was self-contained enough so that if you could only go to one or two and/or missed a few, you didn't feel totally lost. I also loved how hard everything was to fight and that we absolutely needed to work together and bring enough supplies to take each fight seriously. I loved things like the darkness and other 'harder' effects like paralyses and blindness because they made prepping for those things satisfying to cure.

Beyond the story and the great combat/exps, my favorite parts were actually the wonderful little ooc touches. Like the goats. or the golem Rosemary's Mistake/Failure, etc. Those touches kept me cracking up and showed your humor behind the screen.

The one night that stands out the most, and which demonstrates so great how much you care as a person/DM was when, on the fly, in the middle of one event, you figured out that one particular elemental mob was causing me (and only me out of alllllll the people there) to repeatedly crash for some strange reason. Rather than say "oh well, it's just one player" you sent me a tell to wait 5 minutes after my next crash to log back in. I didn't realize what you had done until I had returned, but then I discovered you had changed all the spawns on the fly just so I could play. When that worked and I stayed connected, you still took the time to check in and make sure I was back to smooth sailing. ALL of this without being prompted by a single word or complaint from me. In fact, I never would have ever assumed my crashes were event related if you hadn't taken the time to figure it out. while in the middle of DMing a huge event. That was totally unexpected, super impressive to me, and meant the world.

Thank you so much BRF!
