This is the topic for that, I guess.

I'll try and have the map done this week. I've actually come into an unexpected bit of work (interning for a primary campaign), and I don't know how well it's gonna pan out yet. But I'm going to force myself to at least half-ass up a full world map within the next week.

Meanwhile, would someone agglomerate the necessary links?

The links I've found to Slarty's Faction summary are all broken, so I think that's down.

After I dropped out, Tyranicus made a copy of the faction summary with one or two minor updates. I think it's still on his site.

I believe there was also a topic which contained factions and a summary of each of the posts made by the leader of that faction. Anyone happen to know where that is?

That one probably got purged.

Hooray for this actually happening!

It seems to me that there aren't many factions left on the surface (if any). To make things easier, it'd probably be best to have some traumatic event happen on the surface that forced survivors to go underground. A meteor impact, what not...

Also, the excess factions in Avernum could be taken care of by Ohvol...

I will join and actually participate this time, because I have no pattern recognition skills.

Are we picking up where we left off, or starting from scratch?

The plan thus far is to kick it forward in time a bit, to where we can safely assume that the rakshasi have been dispatched. This will also allow everyone a generally clean slate, as well as some room for the new factions to fit in.

I'm in with the Dominion. Sans most of my army, which is probably for the best.

If we're kicking forward from the last time, I suggest a brief summary of events so far for the benefit of new joiners or people who dropped out in the middle last time (like me).

Fixed to reflect reality. :P

But that is the plan, I believe.

I will be in. If need be, I can take joint control of OoK (that's Prem's OoK, not Eph's) too, so I have a contact until I re-establish my faction.

Last I remember, I was waiting for the Goblin Goblins to arrive at my walls. I can probably resolve that encounter too, but I have no clue if Slarty intended the encounter to be hostile or diplomatic.

Diplomatic.

As there were far, far too many goblins for them to just disappear entirely, they can be resolved as follows: the Gobby Gods were in fact the rakshasi, who were manipulating poor Glogroth. (I had that planned all along.) With the rakshasi despatched: No gods, no leader, the goblins collapse back into innumerable squabbling groups of goblins of no political signifigance, though still being a huge presence on the surface in terms of raw numbers.

Is it just me or has there been a lot of Beatle's related posts recently? I mean, the thread title is obviously taken from Rocky Raccoon.

Or the Rocky films... But yeah, Beatles posts ftw.

Dintiradan: If you want her back that's fine. Otherwise, meh. We'll say she died. As for my old faction, there are two things I'm thinking could've happened to them:

A) They just got swallowed up into a bigger Avernite faction (probably Tyran's).
B) They got too shouty and were killed (which makes sense if the surface became uninhabitable - even if people on the surface were dying, my lot wouldn't let anybody down into the caves).

So it depends on the opening post, I guess. Either's good though. As for who I'm going to be, I'm willing to take up a faction that already exists, or else make up something new, again depending on the opening post.

Slarty: Wait a second. The last time I remember reading the topic, we were about ready to start welcoming our new rakshasi overlords. How were they dispatched?

Speaking of dispatching and rakshasi, what happens to the Guild in the absence of its player?

The Guild doesn't really need someone in control of it. It can just be a neutral group of mercenaries for hire. Anyone can utilize the guild, but those who offer more can expect better results...
