Saturn Ascends Midweek Update: Another One Bites the Dust

I spoke with the player for Wossnam today, and it looks like between the time change – where he lives doesn't do the Daylight Savings thing – and having to spend nearly every waking hour at work or asleep, he bowed out of our game. It's a real shame because we all really enjoy gaming with him, and he doesn't particularly want to leave. But life is swallowing him, so we can only hope it spits him out again at some point in the future.

Unlike last time, losing Wossnam wouldn't leave any holes in the party, and since the rest of our gamign group looks quite reliable, I'm not looking for another player. We really don't want to mess with the chemistry we have. So as with Zubira, Wossnam is becoming a party NPC. I have offered to let the players spend points collectively to buy him as an Ally, since everyone seems to enjoy his crazy antics so much, and Kist's player has already said he'll buy Wossnam himself even if others don't chip in. To that end, I reoptimized Wossnam and tweaked his disadvantages to better suit the way he's been NPCed in his player's absence. It's only fair, since the party is spending points to have him around, after all.

So continuing forward, the cast now looks like this:

PCs

  • Arastos – Gnomish Artificer Cleric (300 points)
  • Gilren – High Elf Wizard Knight (300 points)
  • Kist – Human Mystic Archer Assassin (300 points)
  • Nibaw Velor – Human Knight (300 points)

NPCs

  • Wossnam – Human Barbarian (300 points)
  • Zubira Mgadwar – Human Messenger Cleric Thief (300 points)
