Time is a precious commodity for any adventurer, particularly one with bardic persuasions. Your family and work responsibilities come first, and as such your writing has fallen to the wayside. You can still manage to put together at least one blog per week, but it seems to be on a downward spiral. Each day, make a Will save (DC 20) in order to make time to write. If you fail the saving roll, you cannot try again for 24 hours.
As the DM said, I haven't been able to write as much lately, but I'd like to think that just means the quality of posts has increased. Whether that is true or not isn't for me to decide.
I mentioned in the last post that character creation for my d20 Modern game was a bit unorthodox. So everyone is up to speed, in the game, each PC is playing a version of himself in 2016. Instead of using generic values or rolling, we all inserted the values that we thought were appropriate. Each person went in turn going down the list of CHA, STR, and so on, and we all weighed in with our thoughts. We gave a particularly intelligent member of our group a 15 in INT but an 8 in WIS. Another PC who is known for injury and illness, got an 8 in CON but had high INT and CHA. After everyone had taken their turn in this manner, we used the distributed point system in the rulebook to find out how many points would have been spent to get each PC to their established attribute levels.
Most of the PC's were within a few points of each other, with the injury-prone PC being lowest. The highest was the oldest of the group who everyone agreed is above average in pretty much every category. To make up for his exceptional overall abilities, he is a bit of a sociopath, and that will play into the campaign in some way. The scheduling issue remains a problem, but that at least gives me time to plan a bit more. Most of the PC's have put some thought into their backstory of what has happened between now and that point in the future, and I have a pretty firm grasp on the national and global political climate. I still need to work on local scenes to have a good starting point for everyone. I'm excited to run my first game and hope it all goes well.
Next time I'll have more pics and maybe a video or two of my girl. She's almost walking!
May the Crits be with you
