    How to create memorable characters?

    [*noparse][*b]Some words[*/b][*/noparse]
    [b]Some words[/b]

    Spoiler: Edits by me

    Spoiler: Female Android to Male

    - Trimmed hair (Erase tool)
    - Added sleeves (Copy & paste from upper portion of shirt, then blended together with Clone tool)
    - Enlarged right shoulder (Paint tool, black color)
    - Enlarged left shoulder + rectangled head (Pinch tool at empty space right outside neck)
    - Enlarged chin (Copy & paste from chin, then blended together with Clone tool)
    - Extended jawline (Copy & paste from jawline, then blended together with Clone tool)
    - Shrunk upper lip (Pinch tool, then readded lower lip)
    - Enlarged nose (Bloat tool)
    - Emphasized nose (Copy & paste from circuit line below eye)
    - Thickened eyebrow (Copy & paste from eyebrow, then blended together with Clone tool. This one was quite hard, as there wasn't much eyebrow to work with)
    - Emphasized rectangle cheekbone with newly-created circuit line (Copy & paste from various parts of circuit line on face, then blended together)
    - Added 5 o'clock shadow (Burn tool)
    - ???ed eyes (I can't remember. Neither Bloat nor Pinch helped to make the eyes more rectangular, so I didn't use either. Maybe it's Burn tool on the edges of the eye?)

    Even if it's the exact same code. Why does this matter? Because the source determines who is allowed to change your code.

    Seriously, instead of looking at code-vs-not-code, look at collectivist vs. individualist. That's what I do in my games, and it's a coherent system which allows me to separate law/chaos in a way that is consistent and makes sense.

    Consider two people acting against their own better judgement:

    Miko the Paladin: "I'm here to fight because the Order declared war on the Hoard."

    Thog the Barbarian: "thog here because ulf tell thog come here and fight and later get icecream."

    Do you want to be here?

    Miko the Paladin: "It's an honor to do my duty, though I'd prefer to be smiting a greater evil."

    Thog the Barbarian: "thog could take or leave. except ulf has big axe so not leave."

    If you were in charge, what would you do?

    Miko the Paladin: "Though my wishes lie elsewhere, I would pursue the Order's policy to the best of my ability, even unto the death."

    Thog the Barbarian: "thog hear the beach nice this time of year."

    - - -

    Basically, it's collectivism vs. individualism. Thog obeys Ulf loyally, but Ulf's policies would not outlive Ulf herself. Miko obeys her Order loyally, and the Order's policies do not die with any particular individual.

    The Chaotic person says: Thog's code of conduct is more reliable, because it depends only on Thog, and nobody can sabotage that without his consent.

    The Lawful person says: Miko's code of conduct is more reliable, because it depends on something greater than herself, and is not subject to the momentary lapses of judgement that can haunt an individual.

    Both of them have a point, but neither of them are objectively correct.

Honor states that poison and assassination is vile, because it deals with the individual who transgresses rather than making war on their minions while they hide within their castles. Honor states that fire and swords are honorable, because castles do not burn like cottages, and steel does not slice like linen.

    The guys in power are individually better trained, better armed, healthier, and fewer in number, so of course you're supposed to let them see you coming and not team up, because then they'll win. Giving people the idea that that kind of fight is "honorable" and "fair" (even though it's anything but) gives an advantage to the ruling warrior-thug class.

    Generally, if something can make a peasant beat a knight, it's "dishonorable."

    Spoiler: Player Expectations

    Quote Originally Posted by AvatarVecna View Post

    1) The part I've underlined has been so indicated to point out that people go to those kinds of entertainment because they want to be tricked, and being tricked is necessary to the entertainment. Twists and turns in a story have their place, but they have to operate hand in hand with the audience's suspension of disbelief...and that's part of the problem. In a tabletop RPG, the players are not the audience at a play/movie/magic show, they're the performers. If a magician was going to saw me in half, I'd want to know about it before hand so I could take part in fooling the "audience" appropriately. The DM makes up the main story, but he's not the only storyteller: the players (through their characters) influence the story, and if we're not prepared for the twists and turns as players, we might stumble over them, or miss a cue, or react badly IC because it was a bad surprise OOC. Some surprises are necessary in stories because the players are part-audience as well as part-actors, but leaving them completely out of the loop is just as unenjoyable for them as if you spoiled all the surprises. There needs to be a balance, or things can go badly.

    2) Lying about an in-game thing is an issue, but lying about the basic premise of the game is a whole different story, especially in pbp where people spend days (or even weeks) putting together characters that fit well with both the world and the other party members. If we were playing 3.5, and magic options were forbidden, and it was otherwise presented as a standard D&D world (like LotR or something), I would assume that it was a no- or low-magic world; if we arrived, and (halfway through the first session) found that it was a high-magic world and we're part of a slave caste in that world, that's a very different game than what was necessarily presented to us. That can be a problem if we've built characters for a very different world, because suddenly that LG Monk stops looking so cool, or that LN ranger is almost as bad as the enemy.

    As an example, one of the characters in this game is very much the jealous type, but not romantically: anybody being capable of something that she can never be good at is somebody she can never get along with while staying in-character...and halfway through the first session, the protagonist (and I'll remind you that the goal in this Harem Comedy game is to get the protagonist to fall in love with you) is capable of magic, and magic isn't something you can learn; you've either got it, or you don't.

    3) Beyond building characters that don't fit the game we're playing because they were built for the game we were told we'd get, there's the issue of players being interested in the game only because we were given the impression that it was (or was not) a particular kind of game. If, in example with mages and the slave caste, I only joined the game because I hated high-op 3.5 stuff and wanted to have fun playing a competent non-caster, why should I stay in a game where casters rule the world? That is exactly the kind of game I was avoiding, and this game being presented as anti-magic was the only reason I joine, so why should I stay?

    Spoiler: GitP PbP

    Quote Originally Posted by 2D8HP View Post
    Because I just can't commit to enough of a block of time for face to face gaming (or even Skype and the like) PbP is the only gaming I still do, and I've only ever done PbP at this Forum (mostly 5e D&D, never 3.5), and I've never used "Roll 20" (I actually quit one game because the DM instead of just telling me the distances insisted that I log into a Roll 20, and view a map. I created an account, only to discover that to view in "mobile" I had to subscribe. Since 99.9% of my computer time is via "smartphone" that was a deal breaker)

    I'm going to assume that what works for 5e will work for 3.5:

    1) Be persistent.
    I had to try many times before I lucked into games that lasted.
    And it was luck. I can't descern any clues as to which games would last. "Past history (or lack of same) is not a predictor of future results".

    2) Subscribe via e-mail to both the "Finding Players (Recruitment)" and the "Currently Recruiting Players" threads, and be ready to jump.

    3) Have multiple character "sheets" ready to go at

    4) PM yourself lots of "back-stories" ready to copy and paste for when the DM asks you to submit one.
    Length is more important than quality, I write junk but most DM's seem to decide by word count.
    Pile on lots of dead relatives in the back story, DM's eat that "Edgelord" junk up, I'm serious don't have shame steal be inspired by Batman and Mad Max's, yes those are trite cliches but they work.

    5) Don't actually role-play out a character implied by the back-story, the "back-story" seldom fits the campaign, and it's usually disruptive if you try.

    Why do DM's demand them?

    Who the Abyss knows, but if you want to play you must pay some dues, and that includes writing some tragedy filled junk.

    6) Forget about whatever "character concept" you had before play starts, make your PC fit the game, including how your PC's interact with other PC's, which you can't really guess at first. I've seen DM's flee in terror when a game starts off with "competitive soliloquies" by the players narrating their back-stories, which soon devolved into character driven bickering.
    Nobody really cares about that mess!

    7) Steal an image for PC off the "Dreamboats" thread, or some other source and include it with the "back-story" submission. Worth at least two dead relatives in your PC's history as far as getting accepted to pkay.

    8) Don't flake and be Civil. You encounter the same people again and again, and you will be remembered.

    9) Always be applying!
    You can't guess which games will last, and if you don't have "many irons in the fire", you will be without a game.
    Yes that does mean that sometimes you will be playing more games than you want, no you don't get to flake.

    10) Did I say that you can't predict which games will last?
    Well here's an exception: Players recruiting DM games don't last.
    All games lose players, but when you lose the DM the game ends, and if it's someone else's idea for a game the DM is more likely to quit.

    11) Subscribe to the game thread via e-mail, and post fast.
    Speed is more important than quality.
    A long, well written post encourages others to do the same, it also intimidates others into not posting.
    A short and to the point post inspires others to post as well, keeping the game going, think the opposite of the back-story you wrote.

    12) Post off topic nonsense in the OOC. "Boy do I roll bad", jokes, the weather where you live, whatever. It makes it so that people recognize you.

    13) Put your characters name (and maybe even a small image) into every post, as it's easy to get confused.

    Here's an example:

    Quote Originally Posted by 2D8HP View Post

    Spoiler: Rolls
    14) If you need to take a break, post it!
    If you had to to take a break, and you didn't warn the other players apologize and continue. They have lives as well, and will likely understand.

    15) Be flexible, odd house rules and trying out unorthodox settings may be why the DM is running the game.

    16) Try other games.
    Non 3.5 and 5e D&D games have much better GM to player ratios.
    I'm playing a game of Pendragon, which is awesome, and I didn't have to stress about will my "back-story" be accepted among the many submissions, I'm also playing a "freeform" game where I didn't have to stress about submitting a "sheet", and I'm playing a 5e game (maybe two depending if anyone posts again) where I had a sheet and a back-story pre-made, plus a "homebrew" system (pending another posts).

    17) If you have a "snowflake" non-core class you want to play, submit all the rules.

    18) Be the DM/GM!
    Way better ratio that way.
    Too much work?
    How about a simplified system. Here's one:

    1) GM describes a scene.
    2) Player says an action that their PC attempts.
    3) GM decides if the PC has no chance of success, no chance of failure, or a partial chance of success.
    4) If a partial chance of success, GM makes up on the spot a percentage chance of success.
    5) Player rolls D100 (two 0-9 twenty-siders once upon a time).
    6) If the player rolls under the made up number their PC succeeds in attempting the task, if over the PC fails.
    7) GM narrates the immediate consequences until it's time to again ask, "what do you do".
    8) Repeat.

    I'm playing in three in-progress games (people have posted today), two maybe games (people have posted this month), and I've played many used-to-be games this year.

    Two games have lasted more than four months, one of which just had a post today, and I really couldn't have predicted which games would last.

    By patient and persistent.

    -D&D PbP tips-

    DM tips:

    - DM rolls initiative twice. Once for the party once for the enemies. The winner goes first and everyone acts following their initiative bonus.
    (When combat starts, it takes too much time to ask for everyone to make an inititive check and then wait for every player to take their turn in that order. A faster method is for the DM to roll once for the enemies and once for the group. The winner faction starts and then everyone just follows their initiative bonus in order. Is best if the DM makes the rolls, as most of the time it's the DM who decides a combat has started. This also helps create a dynamic where players know when is their turn to post.)

    -Or don't follow a turn order.
    (Every player posts their actions when they can. Then it's up to the DM to either take their actions in the order they were written, or to organize them by initiative order and resume what happened.)

    -Don't punish the players for that 5 step they are away of the monster because they moved poorly.
    (If you do, next time they will wait until everyone else has posted so they have a clear view of where everybody is on the map before moving. And waiting is bad.)

    -Allow a small degree of godmodding involving the terrain/furniture but not the NPCs.
    (PbP is slow enough as it is, don't make the players ask for every little detail. Either describe it completelly, or allow them to interact with expected items that you did not mention. Like a chair on a tavern, or a torch on a mine.)

    -Avoid asking for individual spot/listen rolls. Let the DM roll it.
    (This just makes the game come to an alt until every player has posted a single roll. Instead, make a table with the most common skills, like spot, listen, search, and knowledges, and the bonuses each player has. Then just roll once and apply the individual bonuses. This speeds the game up a lot.)

    -Trust your players with spoilered information.
    (Make it clear that in PbP you expect them to not open a spoiler tag if it is not marked for them. If you can't trust a player, convice him or replace him, because this is a big time saver. Post spoliers like "If you speak draconic you heard that..." and "if Your spot roll was 15+ then..." By adding the Dc on the spoiler you let your players know if it was a failure or a success while making their posts, so they can edit them with that new information.)

    Player tips:

    -Roll attack, damage, critical threat, and extra damage in the same roll.
    (Just ignore the extra rolls if it's not a crit. Much better than having to make a double post with only more rolls.)

    Formatting tips:

    -Write the OOC actions, notes, and rolls inside a spoiler tag at the end of your IC post.
    (Instead of rolling everything on the OOC. This way the DM doesn't have to figure out which roll is for what. Always add what the roll is for. "Spot" or "Attacking the giant 2")

    -It's a good idea to start your IC posts with your characters name.
    (Either in the description of your actions "Mr.Paladin decided to..." or just plain bold before your actual post. Mr.Paladin)

    -It's commonly accepted that you use italic for your character thoughts and double inverted commas for speech.Sometimes bolded too.
    (Mr. paladin was sad. I wish I wasn't sad. He thought. "I'm so sad." he said.

    The Lord Of Manta's Extended Signature

    The world is a strange place, and sometimes I feel lost.

    Currently Playing As:
    Dungeons & Dragons 3.5th Edition:
    Louise Gweder, the Human Factotum, in TheDarkDM's Age of Worms (IC, OOC)

    Completed Games:

    A/N: Only games that either A) Came to the proper end and conclusion of the story or B) Were stopped by unanimous agreement from the players and DM (as opposed to dying a slow death from lack of posting) or C) made it past one thread are counted.

    As DM:
    The Trailblazer's League 1: Aurum Draconiaci (IC, OOC) - The story of six heroes from a Pathfinder Society ripoff mercenary company and their pursuit of the almighty gold piece, as they attempt to track down a dragon responsible for sacking the little town of Woodshaven. Warning: Contains Fey Shenanigans, Gratuitous Monty Python References, and Kobolds.
    ​As DM: The Trailblazer's League 1.5: Downtime Adventures (IC - Stray and Brigitte, IC - "Jamie" (a.k.a. Kiriel) - The story of what three of the four heroes who made it to the end of Aurum Draconiaci did in the six months before Vespertilio Ex Inferis. The fourth took up crocheting.
    As DM: The Wellspring Saga: Aurora Tenebrosa (IC, OOC) - A Cosmic Horror adventure set in a homebrew universe, where the party must navigate the city of Gottenburg - and the continent of Teien - to liberate it from the grip of a sinister cult known as the Heralds of the Eldest.
    As Player: Felhammer's Warriors of Blackvale (IC 1, 2, 3, 4)- The adventure of a group of adventurers known as the Heroes of the Maw, as they hunt down a murderous Undine known as Baavesi and the machinations of her master, the Lord of Nightmares.
    As Player: Nefarion Xid's Peril & Fame 2: Belhaim/Andoran (IC 1 2) - An open world game that began with the players taking down a dragon threatening the quiet Taldan town of Belhaim, then splitting up to explore the vast wide world of Golarion.
    As Player: Felhammer's Sentinels of Houshen (IC 1 2, OOC) - The adventures of a Tiefling Warlock named Hei Jiafa and his exploits as a mercenary, along with a revolving door of companions. (You think I'm joking, but in all seriousness, by the time the game ended, I was quite literally the only original party member.)
    As Player: 3SecondCultist's Ironfang Invasion (IC 1, IC II, OOC) - The adventures of the survivors of the town of Phaendar, as they flee from the destruction of their town by the hobgoblins of the Ironfang Legion.

    Plus many others that I participated in as a player that, for one reason or another, died and withered on the vine before they could truly come into their own. Such is the lamentable and inevitable nature of play-by-post.

    78% of DM's started their first campaign in a tavern. If you're one of the 22% that didn't, copy and paste this into your signature.
    (I started my first adventure with the PCs being part of a mercenary/explorer company, arriving in a town to investigate a dragon attack that happened two days prior.)

    I would rather have a long informational signature that has no risk of filling too far here than one in the signature bar, possibly detracting from my posts.

    Current PbP games:

    Homebrew I've created: (Please don't necropost any dead threads found here.)

    Arrow Variations.

    GENERATION 17: The first time you see this, copy it into your sig and add 1 to the generation. This is a social experiment.
    DEGENERATION 93: Copy this into your sig and subtract 1 from the degeneration when you first see it. This is an antisocial experiment.
    78% of DM's started their first campaign in a tavern. If you're one of the 22% that didn't, copy and paste this into your signature.
    (Started back in town from a previous adventure, due to DMing in a round. Also, I think the person who made this also made up that statistic)

    Hey, look, you can get back here from here!

    Practical Optimization is any optimization of a character, item, or other rules-made construct you plan to use in an actual game.

    They are often related in some way, but they are not dependent on each other, nor are they antidependent.

    "High optimization" is generally what people mean when they speak of optimized characters, in general. Something that is tweaked to get as much power and effectiveness as possible. It can be theoretical or practical. Practical optimization starts as theoretical, and then gets refined to fit into a given game under a particular GM.

    For Pathfinder, for my purposes, all Constructs are priced by CR, Clockworks lose the Difficult to Create ability, and Constructs lose bonus hp by size instead gaining bonus hp for higher Str.

    Best Generic Feats in PF
    As above only it would seem that PF has far fewer feats that anyone could take that give you superpowers.

    Random Animal Templates
    Every 3.x Animal in random lists with every template one could apply and still leave them as Animals. For simulating animal marketplaces and buying Warbeasts (MM2).

    Every Playable Monster
    Lists of every playable monster (monster with listed Level Adjustment) from which one could roll a random monster. Oh, and they're sorted by Effective Character Level for your convenience.
    Also includes every playable template by ECL.

Setting aside the question of whether Elan's charisma is a powerful asset without which they wouldn't have Julio's assistance, we don't know yet what's going to happen! This strip has surprised us all before and probably will continue to do so.

    Many of the reactions to the strips are written in a tone that suggests the commenter believes there are no more strips coming, with pronouncements on the implications of Rich's plot or character choices. I guess that might be because people are so invested in the story and never know for sure when (or whether, god forbid, because the Giant is human after all) another will be posted, and each new posted strip is another opportunity to release pent-up anxiety about getting more story. It's hard to be patient but I suspect it's premature to make assessments of the story until it's done in four or five more years.

    I often marvel at Rich's restraint at not arguing with more of the posters when they make broad statements about strips being disappointing, or D&D rules not being followed, or whatever. I know the internet provides a new way for consumers of stories to interact with authors, but this strip must be setting records for sheer volume of commentary and discussion per page produced. What other author has ever produced something of this length while having it nitpicked and challenged (and praised) by readers literally every step of the way?

    It's kind of amazing to behold.

    Anyway I think the story continues to be engaging and exciting and my two cents are that Julio was set up a long time ago and this is just one more example of Rich planning ahead a lot more than just about anyone who writes serialized fiction.

    ... you need supreme, ultimate abilities, then you need a tier above that so a character can kick logic to the curb and row row fight the power with a wicked heavy metal leitmotif in their crowning moment of awesome, then you need a tier above that to maintain the mystery and wonder, to keep the flame of ambition alive so that one always has something to strive for, even if it is beyond the bounds of the current story being told... then you need a tier above that because I hate spellcasters.
