    I have opened a new recruitment thread.

    I will update the above list, tell you when you level up, give you warnings for not posting enough, and answer questions.

    Every once in a while I will give a title to the next section of the game such as

    Introduction
    Trip to Calensway


    and when I do that it means a piece of a plot will come up it will be very broad to entice your characters whatever their personality might be like, but if your really are against it IC I will not rail road you, but their will be realistic repercussions. I will then say what this section involves like below, but the information from it remains OoC.

    In this introduction section you will at some point get to go to Calensway and most of you will probably want to take that opportunity as soon as you are allowed it.

    Here is the latest section.

    Caged Dragon(s)


    In this section you may find a fairly long series of quests/dungeons based on your detective skills each will bring you closer to the hidden secrets of the mountain range, but only if you find the trail of clues linking each quest/dungeon together. Also I will sow the seeds that will grow into the plot you will likely get to by level 10+, you may not notice it now, but you will and it will be cool.

    Cool, Ill be speaking in Green

    To do that you want to put {COLOR="Green"} Speech {/COLOR}. But with [] instead of {}.

    Or the easiest way is to highlight the words and select the colour drop down menu in the tool bar, just like in microsoft Word, adds the tags for you

    Edit: Oh and it varies from game to game but the usual application of this is to use coloured text when talking and italic coloured when thinking internally.

    So- "Oh hello there" or "Damn im hungry..."

    Nice, Alan will be talking in Orange

    So we are finally 5 characters. I will update my sheet with some campaign names.

    What was the starting gold we finally get?

    Edit: My character is a lumberjack, does he know anything about Howsitcalled Ckegrriellghy Woods? Like forbidden or dangerous or something?
    Is there a closer place to cut trees? Or does he have to travel for work?

    Oh and Ive adjusted my feats, im now Shield focused and have taken a Flaw.

    Its Unreactive, giving me -6 initiative but has been explained in character like so:
    Rarely one to charge head first into battle, he finds it far too un-elegant, preferring to bide his time and wait for opponents to approach, Its much more refined.
    I think its a fitting explanation for an up-himself noble

    Hmm, I'm not sure I should take a flaw... my character has an eyepatch only sees with one eye, if that is going to nerf my spot or search skills I might as well take a flaw out of it.
    Extra feats are always welcome.

    Murky eyed is good for that, re rolling to hit %'s.

    Ive always put down to bad depth perception so its perfect for a one eyed character!

    In games ive played they dont come up all too often. Its worse on ranged character because of Cover, for melee its pretty much only Blur/Displacment or darkness effects you have to worry about.

    But if your build isnt too feat starved you will be fine without it anyway

    I don't really have a build As we are starting as commoners I'm going to see how things go.
    I like melee combat, but no idea if I will go ranger, fighter, warlock, barbarian... no idea.

    Just as a general rule the currency here is a bit lacking and unless you are a noble your money is measured in silver peices, but every thing you buy will be reduced by a factor of 10 as well. So over all the peasants have about 10d2+20 sp and the nobles have 10d4+360 sp, and even if you don't have enough money for your starting gear you will soon.

    The Ckegrriellghy Woods that you know is just the outskirts maybe once sense you worked their you thought you saw an elf, but it ran away and the tree you were chopping healed its cuts.

    Would this homebrew be allowed? It's fine if not, but I thought it fitted the character more than barbarian or ranger (what I would otherwise choose).
    Edit: link correction, and can I change my ranks in survival to Knowledge:Nobility and Royalty? Again, it would fit the character more.

    If not that homebrew why not Knight, Paladin, Warblade or Crusader? Would fit the chivalry knight concept more than Ranger of Barb

    Well, Warblade and Crusader are not quite... Well, knightly enough, I don't exactly have enough Cha or Wis to be a Paladin; Knight... I admit I forgot about Knight . On close inspection, it does look like it could make a good class for my character. No manoeuvres, but they were never the important thing. Guess I'm looking at Knight then! I'd still like to swap survival for Knowledge: Nobility.

    I see both of you rolled for listen, if it is required this is my roll: (1d20+2)[7](9)

    In other PbP games I have been, the DM managed this kind of rolls so the games moves faster.

    Search, listen, spot, knowledges, saves and initiative were rolled by the DM. How are we going to deal with them?

    I will roll for you in cases that a player would roll automatically and if the player decides to take an action to make a roll they may do so and I will tell them if they beet the DC when I respond. In this case however you will not gain any more information from listening well.

    Almost forgot this is not the worst suggested so far but maybe a slight nerf like not giving all your allies charm and compulsion immunity. Would that be ok?
