i'm just trying to beat Lenny to the punch at posting a bunch of blank space.

Ok, so I haven't heard anything since my last post about D&D. I know several of my players are antsy and wishing to play, but I can't get a correct challenge level for this game without knowning what everyone is playing. I also can't get a decent story going if I don't know what my characters want. I can't just make up all of your background for you, and I need to know if the plot hooks will be something the characters will go for or something the players are going to go for because they know they're plot hooks. So yeah, I need information about my players and characters. I still don't even know if Carolyn is going to continue to play. If everyone continues to not help me out on this then there will end up being no game because I can't make something coherent.

As i just remembered that i was talking to someone about him the other day, and can't now remember who it was (Brian possibly?), i'll put it here, so whoever it was can see what i was talking about.

Ok, more D&D news. I have spoken with all my players about their characters except Drake and Carolyn. I don't really need much from Carolyn since her character is carrying over, but I do need to hear from Drake. I'm not sure what race or class your playing at this point, and I would like to know. Also, I have gotten no information about character goals, backgrounds, or any of the other stuff I asked for in the last post except from Lenny. So everyone get on it. I also need to know if anyone has any set scheduels, or days that they will not be avaliable to play. You know, all the usual information. So hurry up.

Ok, so here's another update on D&D, sorta. Everyone involved in my game has some required reading. Because the game takes place in Eberron, you need to know about the area you're all gonna be in. So, it's time to read the sections in the book on "Q'Barra", the "Talenta Plains" and "Velnera." Basically everything on the south sides of the Talenra Plains. So yeah, read up on that. Also I would like to point out that one of the things that makes this an "Exalted" good game, as opposed to a game with all good alignments, is that the characters should have a higher purpose. That they strive for good, and right. They have a much higher morality than a standard good character, and don't just get by on a good alignments. Being Exalted good comes along with ideals and aspirations. I expect all characters to have this crucial character points to them, and I expect to see it not only in play but also in character building. Why did they choose the path they chose? What do they hope to accomplish with their life? Adrienne and Carolyn are gonna have a bit more work than othe rplayers with this but I do expect them to put some thought into this as well. But I expect every character to be morally upright. So yeah, don't forget about the required reading. I know not everyone has the Eberron book, but I know most of you can get it in pdf, or borrow it from someone. Don't ask me, Lenny has mine and then I'm gonna need it back to finish the campaign, so I suggest you start trying to get it read soon. For those of you whom I find did not do the reading, there will be a stiff penalty. That's all.

P.S. I don't know how often Carolyn checks this blog, but if someone would just mention it to her that there's a post she should read if she's going to continue playing in this game, that'd be great.
