A big shout out to new characters!
Getting Ilomas's story of the white rod was an absolute highlight of the month. It's amazing to have characters around who have been scarred and scoured by a world-changing plot, and who have unique perspectives on them.
When Duq isn't on I miss Duq
It's been nice to get to know more about Lily. There's a lot there that isn't apparent until you dig a little deeper.
Alexis Dufresne Montjoie. Alexis. Dufresne. Montjoie. What a fancy man. What a hero.
Billy Parton has such a strong, innocent presence. No wonder 15 people in a group run to raise him!
Snuggles deserves some credits. And not just because of the name! The little Goblins is always his original self and has been doing this for a long time now, and on a constant basis. And he now comes with legs as well! What more could a fellow player ask for?
The whole Mikonertown crew. You make me so happy.
Doriand Mias (sic) is the archetypal tracker, guide, ranger, teacher, and philosopher. I look forward to every interaction!
Duq has been an absolute delight, and that's only been magnified by the addition of a flag.
Emick continues to shine. Great character, great RP, and the player is always helpful and inclusive.
Keira is the bestest best friend and the perfect social host for all of Avlis. Don’t let the plebeians get you down!
I really enjoyed my interactions with Keira and Kaelyn this last month as the political uncertainty in M'Chek continues.
Thienna took the time to notice my PC was uncomfortable and quietly take steps to fix it. Kindness doesn't always stand out next to big declarations, but it's appreciated all the same.
Constance is a tour de force of plotting and scheming. Watch out Valokians, this Senathite is stealing your turf!
Moonlit Paw deserves to be proclaimed the People's Hero.
I really enjoy the moments when Emick Azorian is a small person acting like a big hero.
There is still a farm upstate waiting for Jack, if he wants it.
Thienna has been such a great character! The fact that she envision the Elder Healer role is just amazing! She's patient and kind and I always enjoy roleplaying with them!
Moriand Dias owns the niche of Woodsman.
Talla Rookling is still and deep, like a glacial lake.
Love seeing the Tcharovs arounds. Wonderful expression of brotherhood!
Fletcher Millstone is a true tentpole character, lifting up those around him.
It's been fun to watch Sceluscio's frankly unhealthy obsession with forbidden knowledge.
Silver Fox continues to impress. Evil with nuance (yes, I said nuance)!
Need more Mac, and more rhombus!
Quick! Fetch the fainting couch! Alexis Dufrense Montjoie is feeling wan and consumptive! In all seriousness, Alexis is one of my favorites for playing things to the absolute hilt. He's also an epistolary virtuoso.
Doing hoodrat things with the crew in M'chek tickles the right spots.
Moriand Dias never disappoints. He's grounded and real, and he lends that reality to everything he touches.
Every conversation with Nostalgia is just a delight. She has such a way of dropping the big questions on your character and helping you articulate exactly who they are.
Kassha Firehart, both obscenely powerful and infinitely generous. Although he does need to work on his pitches.
Archibald got in a few clever zingers the other night that definitely enhanced my fun!
Thank you for amazing crab times, Kassha!
Lily and Owen are urbane and charming. They're also up to no good, but who's counting?
Tupaia is a fun character to be around and the player seems very charming and supportive. She is quiet and reserved and yet has a lot of wisdom to share! Always a joy every time I get to RP with this player!
It was super fun to watch an old school Dominator vs. Paladin philosophical debate. Thank you Ishra and Kaelyn!
Sammy Valorian's father is a paladin.
Kassha and his loft of seagulls always gives me something to look forward to
Morgan Thornheart is deftly walking a delicate line of playing out the actual implications of Jechran as a place.
I love me some Tor! I love that the player has done his research, and I love that unapologetic old school barbarian hero vibe.
Kaelyn Grumbald has a good heart and lifts up everyone around her.
Flenken! Jaa! He is having both the jokes and the emotional depth! He did zoom back into our lives very briefly, and it was like he had never done the leaving. He does have the lumbago so be going easy, jaa.
Constance Drake is up to something.
A shout out to Team Scout who decimated the Immortals in Nightfang.
Kaelyn Grumbald. Kelly Grumbles. Big Kelly G. Kellz. The posture. The mannerisms. The sure knowledge she'll get kicked down a well by a Blackguard one day - and the presence to keep going despite this! Wow!
Silver Fox keeps things rolling and pulls people into the pit. She's an animating force on Avlis.
I keep raving Nostalgia because she keeps being fantastic!
Keira is the center of so much social gravity.
Duq has taken to Avlis like a... well, a Duq to water. Always a joy to see him; even more so to hear reports of his activities.
Kaelyn has been one of my favorite characters and the player has been one of my best supporters in my time here! Quiet, thoughtful, and I have come to believe, rather complex even when they don't reveal themselves openly. Can't wait to continue roleplaying with them!
Luci and Mac are neutral Adorable.
Constance Drake. Connie. ConCon. Big Connie D. The Long Con. C-Drazzle. A character who walked fully-formed into Avlis and has set about maging and skulduggerizing with panache!
Getting to know Dani has definitely been rewarding, and I'm looking forward to more.
Keira Sophia "Names" Dane Tochi'larian, or KSDT to absolutely nobody, is a charming, gracious delight.
I love the little bit of spice Mayor Millstone adds to every conversation. Dragonskin boots for all!
Billy Parton, The Pipe Baron, The Skullcracker, The Slaughterer of Innocent Blackguards, the Herald of Wow!, is always a source of joy (and busted jaws) in game.
For so many reasons, consider this a recurring monthly rave for Sceluscio! Suffice it to say Lexy's heart always chooses well.
Enoch "Knuckles" Tcharov is my favourite Tcharov. Don't tell Cyprian.
Tor's player needs encouragement, because no matter what they might think - Tor Varson is a pleasure to roleplay with! He may seem quiet, only talks when he has something to say, but there is a lot of character and depth to him. I'm always happy to roleplay with them!
Duq's really interesting! He's genuinely funny but there's a lot more to him than that; the humor comes from good characterization.
Cyprian "Cupcake" Tcharov is my favourite Tcharov. Don't tell Enoch.
Nostalgia Bellweather, or, to use her wrestling name, NEURALGIA HELLWEATHER, is a wonderful portrayal of an ordinary person finding her own path in a crazy world of magic and monsters. And then beating stuff to death with her tiny monk fists.
Rade for depth and competence and heart.
Mac and Luci will destroy us all with their flying pyramid of doom one day, cackling the whole way. "Rhombohedrons."
Tikno Ruv. Wow, what a character and absolute pleasure to roleplay with! I've sadly only gotten to do so a couple times, but she is definitely one of my favorite characters! Sweet, charming, wise, and accepting. I'll always be down to roleplay with this player and any of her PCs!
Ishra "GLORY" Qiyun remains the picture of elegant malevolence.
Andria is kinda blowing my mind
Caydo's NPCs are great!
Most of my experiences as a new player have been under DM Zonr and I must say... they are absolutely excellent in both their story delivery and doing very well in making everyone feel included as best as they can! Even when a character can't help directly - they're still a part of the story!
Pleth is Plething at 900 mph. M’Chek has an amazing cast of new characters: way to take initiative and modernize the setting in such a fun way!
I offer my sincere thanks to the DM's who continue to bring Avlis alive, as well as the other team members working in the shadows.
