Quote: The Enemy Within. I've been holding off on buying the books and adventure, hoping the DM will start the next module, but it probably won't happen. I've been holding off on buying the adventures because I can't seem to find them for less than 100 bucks each! I used to own them too... Best. Mo...

<t>I feel your pain, I've had that problem.

<t>Senses more alert, and with an unusual trepidation, you enter the Lake Woods. with relief you note that as the day progresses the mist has begun to burn off, filling the dark and barren forest with more light than you might have expected earlier this morning.

<t>As your diminutive disciple of nature bends to his task, you all note that it is perhaps too quiet. It dawns on you that you have not seen any living thing since you've departed from Garham this morning.

BASHMAN, you have a PM on the results of your tracking, and listening checks.

Do you all have an idea of your marching order? I.E. who's on point, and how fast you are travelling, and any special actions you are routinely undertaking as you travel?

<t>In the best political tradition, I'm just going to avoid the whole problem. I in large part agree with the Encumbrance rules mostly as written, but I feel that they are pretty clunky, and not something I really want to micromanage in this game, so Encumbrance will be handled in a "narrative" mann...

While we still have some filling out to do, It does look like we have the "classic 4" together for the most part. I could still take one or two more if anyone is interested. Looks like you could use another fighter type, and maybe a bard or specialist of some sort.
