I am honestly amazed by the number of people who have expressed their interest in the thread, growing steadily since initial discussions in discord. I wanted to thank everybody and hope I can facilitate a hunt I hope will be fun for everybody involved.

One of the biggest challenges with a thread so large is managing posting orders. After some initial discussions in the Discord, I want to try and move away from the traditional method of 'posting orders' for something more structured for me and offering greater flexibility for you.

How it will work:
  1. Each Phase will last 2 weeks starting every Monday around 19:00-21:00 GMT.
  2. Each new Phase will start with an introductory post made by DM that will set the scene for the new period. Generally, this will be NPC's reacting or events unfolding that you can react/respond too.
  3. During this time players can post in whatever order they feel like with no defined posting order. However, please do be cautious to ensure you respond to other players you are interacting with.
  4. Currently, there is no limit to the number of posts you can make but please do not abuse this.
  5. If you do not manage to post in the two-week timescale the thread will progress, but you will not be left behind and can jump in later. In combat situations, it will be assumed that your character was engaged elsewhere likely supporting the Rangers in their efforts to fight Valaxor.
Current Schedule:
08/02/2021 - Briefing -
All participants are gathered at camp, you will receive some information regarding the situation from Irilthorn. Primarily an opportunity to network and plan our attack.

22/02/2021 - Awakening - A short time skip to Valaxor's awakening and where the action really starts to pick up. Depending on how we plan the attack it could involve anything from fighting other nasties or attacking head-on.

I realise this is quite delayed and I apologise for the length of time it has taken me to write out this post.

Regardless, thank you, everyone, for their posts so far, and I hope you're enjoying the thread so far. As we move into the more combat orientated aspects, I intend to take advantage of the forum's dice system.

This will serve primarily to help determine degrees of success (or failure). In my experience, utilising these in a freeform environment can be challenging, especially when relying upon another party to potentially moderate those rolls. So taking some inspiration from pen and paper I've created some Difficulty Class (DC) checks.

As a player, your aim to beat the DC.

Cores Remaining (*)12-34-78-1112-1516+
Head (1/1)-DC8DC12DC15DC18DC20
Chest (1/1)*DC10-----
Tail (2/2)-DC4DC8DC12DC16DC18
Limbs (8/8)-DC2DC7DC9DC11DC12
Wings (8/8)-DC2DC7DC9DC11DC12
20 Cores Remaining
* Destroying the Chest core is the Victory Condition.

We will retain the posting rules from the previous round with a caveat being that any attacks made against Valaxor will only generate a single Die roll.

When rolling dice you must declare which body part you are targeting. Additionally, even if you fail the DC, your attacks may still injury him (I'll be adding modifiers for well-thought-out attacks). The results of any damage will be done at the end of the current phase. During this time Valaxor will retaliate, and we will do a simple roll-off to determine if his attacks hit or not.

If you attack a body part that has already been reduced to 0, it will carry over to the next body part with the same or lower DC as to not waste your work.

Happy Friday :)

I hope everybody is looking forward to the weekend after a busy week.

This a minor announcement to say I will be extending this week's round by 1 week to allow people more time to get their posts up and running (myself included).
