    Well ok not really. I will post some ground rules which in general will say
    1) You can’t hijack someone else’s expedition, you may feel free to join and add events but not make major changes to the story line.

    2) You can’t kill off someone else’s npc / pet / hireling, though if something happens to the whole group (Captured by Blorpurples) it happens to them as well

    3) The “Escape” clause will say you can leave a group at any time and “miraculously” make your way to the surface. Once this is done, you may not impact their expedition (not start a competing one for the same specific goal).

    Ospprod you are awarded 2 XP. One for the introduction and one for the first day of your journal!

    Also it gave me the best shot to play up the hard of hearing.

    Oh, I kinda figured that Zlozz would end up wandering off in his own direction once everyone is in the Oith. One thing I would like to know is Expedition Length, how many days will the expedition be. That way I can:

    A) provide Zlozz’s point of view on a given day if in the group and nothing AWESOME happens

    2) Have Zlozz wander off on his own and be able to meet back up on a given day

    III) It will allow me to keep the journal about the same length as everyone else’s. It doesn’t make sense if you have a 3 day trip in your mind, and I fill in 6 days worth of Journal entries, then meet the group for the trip back up.

    10 weeks, 70 days of goodness, I can do SO MUCH DAMAGE to the Underwhere. I should have taken a skill in drawing/cartpgraphy to start mapping/ sketchin’poo.

    bwahahaha! Seriously anyone done any cartography? Got a good App? I have a bunch, but I don’t have the time or patience to learn them.

    I am a GIS Analyst, and all of my electives in school were 400 level mapping classes. I am also familiar with old school surveying and total station.

    I like maps…

    Well then get to work! We need to start with the Mutha Oith surface as an overlay and plot egress points, then connect them.

    I already did a spread of Andy’s original map over a projection of the real earth, and it looks like most of the southern hemisphere was left out. It was a planar projection, so as you move away from the North Pole, the distortion gets higher. We could just use the map from the original Low Life, and draw in where you want entrances/ exits. If you want anything more complex than that you will have to give me more details for where you want exits. Unfortunately I am not the artist Andy is, So anything I do won’t rock near as much as what Andy could do.

    Since we have no cartographers in our group, odds are any mapping our characters made would be horribly out of scale and inaccurate. I could go into a long, long rant about the issues with mapping and rpgs, but I will save that for a day I need more clams, then post it one sentence at a time, and when the smoke clears I will be the top Oithling (or not).

    You could work toward an appropriate edge so that you CAN become the official cartographer.

    Where is the fun in knowing where you are? With skills like those you miss out on many opportunities to add more later.

    I think real life and his shiny new child are getting in the way of his posting on the forum time. Some people have no perspective on where there priorities should be. 😆
