Life got busy for me, so my time here slipped away. Especially since I'm so lost on how the setting changed, being I've never kept up with the material during 4e and now into 5e.

Anyhow, decided to drop in and say heya cause I see GenCon is happening. Some of you can still find me over on Facebook or Twitter, so at least we keep up with each other.

How is everyone else doing? Things have to have changed for many of you, since the last time I posted was a year and half ago.

Um. I see my old accounts for Aim, Yahoo, and Messenger are active but those services are long gone now. So, if anyone wants to chat, come follow me on Facebook or Twitter.

FB's: Kuje589.
Twitter: @Greylupine71017

The Twitter account for Candlekeep is dead by the way, although there is one over there. :) Maybe we need to revive it somehow?

What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet and excite you... Books are full of the things that you don't get in real life - wonderful, lyrical language, for instance, right off the bat. - Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird

Welcome back, Kuje!

Short version of 4E setting changes: Boom. Boom. BOOM!

Short version of 5E setting changes: If it happened in 4E, it was reversed.

(As for the rules, I've not played 5E myself, but I've heard mostly good things about it. Some complaints, to be sure, but nothing approaching the complaints I saw about the 4E ruleset. 5E seems to have been pretty well-received.)

Grins. Interesting, they reversed so much of what they changed. Hmm. Maybe I should pick up a new campaign setting book for FR... Is there one? I'm so clueless now on sourcebooks for FR.

I do have a friend who plays 5e, and he says it's a much better ruleset compared to 4e. At least, his groups and him like it better. We've talked about it in person a few times. I wish I had more time to play or DM. Ah well.

Not really... They've been doing the Adventure Path thing, this time. The Sword Coast Adventurer's Guide is the closest thing we've got to a setting book, though some of the other books have some setting lore, as well.

Well met, Kuje

A long time, indeed from one of the original scribes of old. Hope thou art doing well and welcome back to these halls of lore.

The Candlekeep Twitter account is still used, albeit just for announcing site updates...which are quite rare these days, sadly.

I'm doing okay, so I can't complain. :)

Indeed. I followed the Twitter handle a while back, and saw how it was used to announce updates. Guess I was thinking with the way things have changed on the net, having more activity on Twitter could be a way to show people Candlekeep is still around. :)

Unfortunately the one thing they didn't into with 5e was the horrible timejump.

The Twitter account could be used to announce activity on prominent threads yo get people's interest.

Very nice to see you posting here Kuje. I do not post nearly as much as I like but I do read through most the threads. I miss having time to just delve into FR and nothing but FR. Hope to see you more often.

The party come to a town befallen by hysteria

Rogue: So what's in the general store?
DM: What are you looking for?
Rogue: Whatevers in the store.
DM: Like what?
Rogue: Everything.
DM: There is a lot of stuff.
Rogue: Is there a cart outside?
DM: (rolls) Yes.
Rogue: We'll take it all, we may need it for the greater good.

See, it was the time jump which caused me to decide not to buy the 4e material. 100 years was way to much for me since my feeling was it caused the old lore and the changes I made to the setting through my campaigns to become invalidated.

Heya. :)

I do sign on and lurk from time to time, but most of the time now I don't have much to say either.

Well its still al invalidated, but now for added measure you have a campaign world 100 years in the future with very little current lore, and to fill in the gaps they say to just use the old lore.

With logic like that they might as well have undone the 100 year timejump as well.

1356-1370 DR is still just as awesome as ever though so I'm sticking there. Them old books have plenty of mileage left in them.

Hi Kuje

Great to see an old face here again :)

As we get older we become more wise and have fewer questions...

Take care :)

You're so right, the old material has plenty left to build on. See, I suppose I might be more disappointed if I knew what current material was like. Since I don't know much about 4e or 5e FR material, I guess I don't feel like I'm missing anything any longer. :)
