Post by The Apothecary »

The Apothecary (AGM)

  • Maintain a GM post rate at a minimum of one adventure post per week.
  • Have the IM contact info of each player in their group.
  • Notify all players in the group via IM or PM of new GM posts, and other important updates.
  • Maintain your adventure notes in the GM's Cabal. (Gist: If a random GM can't pick up and run the adventure from your notes, the notes are unsatisfactory.)
  • Be available for IM chat at least one day a week.
  • Coordinate with the AGM regarding expected adventure dates & time-frames.
  • Consult with AGM regarding XP awards.
  • Directly notify AGM via PM of any expected absences in addition to the Account Status Tracker.
  • GMs will be rated according to merit by their players every quadrimester.
  • Rating will be done by players on the following schedule:
      • Quad 1: June 1st
      • Quad 2: October 1st
      • Quad 3: February 1st
  • Each is responsible for creating his rating poll on the above schedule.
  • Players are responsible for rating the GMs within a week of the poll being posted, and posting notice that they have voted (in the same thread.)
  • Ratings will be conducted via poll and averaged to the nearest whole number.
  • Players who do not vote will be removed from the average.
GM Rating Reward Table
  • 10: You have earned 7 EP.
    9: You have earned 6 EP.
    8: You have earned 5 EP.
    7: You have earned 4 EP.

Voted. Post rate is excellent- best we've had from a GM in a long time. You took over without being prompted, and despite being spread alarmingly (to me) thin on this site. Between that and the fact that we've only had a month, I'm entirely satisfied with your GMing so far. A lot of the current adventure so far has featured events we can't do a whole lot about, which does risk frustrated players, but I'm reserving judgment on that until I see how the narrative plays out. Fingers crossed for team evil getting some epic satisfaction later :D.

Thank you for stepping in and taking over so well when our GM vanished. :)

Voted for Grimloq.

You did a great job of saving the group! You have also set a challenging bar for who ever decides to fill the roll of permanent gm for us.

Voted, agree post rate is solid. A lot of the current adventure so far has featured events the team was helpless to do anything about. I'm also going to go on record though sayin it feels kind of insulting for every NPC to always know what you are doing and thinking.

One minor additional point of feedback, but I would like to request you consider the use of

Code: Select all

tags when the GM post copies dialogue a PC has already written. I find this helps differentiate PC speech (which I have already read and am less likely to need to respond to) from NPC speech (which I may need to scrutinize and respond to).
Leave me alone.
Spell Strength +5 (victims need 17 or better to save vs. Vheld's incantations)
Automatic senses: Vampires (1000 ft/100% chance to recognize on sight), Rifts (550 miles), and Ley Lines (85%, 100 miles; +10% for nexuses)
33d remaining
PPE: 314/329 (Vheld), 1100/1100 (Energy sphere), 83/83 (Sil). ISP: 90/90 (Medallion), 500/500 (Skarrah). MDC: 1200/1200 (Bakir), 187/187 (Birga).
: 3/3 on Vheld IA
