Okay guys, the website software was updated last night at 1AM and I am still working on getting it modded to the way I had it before the upgrade.

That said, the PhP coding has changed with this new version (as you can see in the buttons when you post) and I am still figuring it out.

All the main menu buttons work, they are just ugly at the moment until I figure out how to remove the 'question mark' icons.

We no longer have the dice buttons in the posting menu, but we do have the functionality. So - we can no longer hit the button and get the BBC code template that we then just fill in our dice numbers, BUT the code still works.

So, if you want to do an in-post dice roll, you just need to type it all out now. I give an example below:

[ro11]{:00:}1d12,2d6[/ro11]
If you want to have the details like I used to have for our TOR die roll button, it would be:

[size=2][b]TN --[/b] [i]skill --[/i][/size]
[ro11]{:00:}[/ro11]
:dmg:    edge:    injury:

**In both codes above, the l's in the word roll are 1's, so be sure to change them if you cut and paste.

I am still working on getting the buttons back, but it should all work now! I will keep you apprised, or you will see the changes.

Thanks for that ! On the other hand, I also notice that quick reply now has some nice shortcuts for fonts and stuff

Seeing as I have yet to get any insight from the SMF modders on the Simple Machines forums on how to add new buttons within the POST screen for our dice roller code, I have made a quick solution.

Under RESOURCES in the main menu is a new option to click called DICE FORMATS. If you click this, it will open a new window text file that contains the simple BBC code necessary to do a quick fill dice format.

Because the main menu is always visible (unless you are using Quick Reply - then you will have to scroll up), it will be easily available while you are making a post. So what you will do is click the link which opens the new window; select the roller format you want and copy/paste into your post. You will fill in the dice information from there, but it will function upon clicking post.

Okay everyone - it looks like I finally have all of my tasks figured out and the buttons have been returned.

The only thing I am still working on is getting the Profiler back in place!! Here is hoping that can be resolved.

Well - we have characters and players, but no LM.

Does anyone want to take up the mantle of Loremaster and carry this game forward?

Guys,
 If you are still interested in playing I will take up the reigns and at least get us through this story. Give me a day or two to get caught up with the who and where and figure out where this was going and I'll get a post up.

Gentlemen,
 I am sorting through a couple of things and trying to push the curtain back on a couple of things our narrate threw out there, but I don't know where they were going to go.

Question: What type of campaign are you all looking for?
explore middle earth?
explore the cultural and area of Rohan?
GO through the adventures in the book?
Goals or aspirations?

Any comments or thoughts will help me shape this.

Also, if you are still interested in the game please respond here. Anyone who I don't hear from I will write out, and if we don't get enough people interested I will just archive the story and put it in the vault.
THE GAME MUST GO ON!

I am interested in continuing - not sure we have the other players anymore.

As for what type of game - whatever you want to bring. We can move through the campaign book as well as add other little tidbits along the way, or you can create whatever you would like.

I just don't want to have to come up with a new character.

Doug,
I am away this weekend, but I will get a post up next week to move the story along. I have some ideas for the adventures of Garulf and Raghnall.

Many thanks

I am going to send out a PM to Andrew (Egilhir) and see if he is still along for the ride.

That will give us three solid characters and the GM NPC.
