    The game will begin towards the end of the Wutai War (start of Crisis Core). Genesis has abandoned SOLDIER, and has taken a lot of 3rd and 2nd class members with him.

    Sweet. What does my character know about the war, and is there a good resource I can use to read up on the history?

    The best source will be the final fantasy wiki. Type in Wutai War in the search box.
    Fira knows that the war started because Godo Kisaragi, the emporor of Wutai, refused the construction of a mako reactor on sacred Wutai land. Also, the Vajradhara clan have united with the people of Wutai to help defend the Island.

    Alright, I think I pretty much got it. Sheet amended.

    I think my character is going to be pretty indoctrinated when it comes to Shinra, seeing as she's in the air force.

    I just realized I haven't been using my color. If it's alright, I'm going to keep it as black until such time as we add additional players. It's easier to type that way and we don't really need to distinguish between players...

    Also, which time zone are you in, so I know whenabouts to be more active?

    That's ok. It won't be a while yet until a search for a new player so go ahead and use black .

    Also, i live in England so GMT is my time zone. I'm mainly active between 6-7.30 in the morning and 7-9 pm in the evening.

    Is there a keyhole for the padlock? Does it look sturdy? I doubt a stone would be able to break the padlock.

    Is the stone thin enough to jam into the padlock and use as a makeshift lockpick?

    Cool, thanks.

    It might be a good idea to restore hps equal to 1d10 + every point treat injury exceeds DC15, that way potions get better with level and give people a reason to specialize.

    Also, I'm AFB right now, but I think scouts get more skill points than rogues, any particular reason that is?

    No particular reason actually, do you think the number of trained skills should be swapped around between Rogues and Scouts? Also, i like your idea on hp restoration. I'll do the same for mp healing as well.

    Erm, dont want to sound like an idiot but what does AFB mean?

    Away From Books.

    The reason I'm asking is because rogues have lower hps, # of skills, mp, and BAB when compared to scouts. I'm not sure exactly what should be done (switching around would help), but it seems a bit unbalanced.

    Thanks for that. I've made some changes. The Rogue and Scout's mp and number of trained skills have been swapped around.

    Hey man, I've got some feedback, not on the system, but on GM style (hopefully it is constructive).

    In tabletop, it makes perfect sense to go back to the player for every detail, because everyone's sitting together and rolling dice is quick. In PbP, a single post/reply can be a day or more. Because of that, pretty much every GM post should end with enough detail for the players to make a decision as to what their characters are going to do. The most recent perception check is a perfect example (ask for perception check, make the check, respond with detail, decision is made = 4 posts, vs make perception check & provide detail, decision is made = 2 posts). In PbP, rather than asking the player to roll perception, it would be faster/more efficient if the GM makes the perception check for the player, then tell him/her what the character sees based on that, then ask for a decision.

    How's that sound?

    perception: (1d20+10)[30]

    If you're tired of the game, just say so. There's no need to double up on a critical hit and instakill the character without any warning. :p

    That being said, I left the pdfs at home. Is there any way to use a mako point to avoid dying in this situation?

    Also, heroin is a drug. Heroine is the female form of hero. Just something that's been bugging me.

    If not, then game over, and we'll do a post-test review.
