    Default Virgins to the Night [WFRP] OOC

    In Character thread
    Recruiting thread

    Welcome everyone! I'm excited to present my first Warhammer adventure. If all goes well there will be many more.

    I've put together some house rules and best practices below. Please read them and ask any questions you may have.

    Please paste your character sheet into your first post in this thread. You may also find it helpful to put a link to your character sheet in your signature.

    Rules & Best Practices
    Spoiler
    Show
    Posting Expectations
    Please check the thread and post daily.

    Every other day is workable, but please aim for daily. If it's been two days since your last post, I will auto-pilot or skip your character to keep the game moving. If you have long (unannounced) absences or repeat posting problems, I will write your character out.

    That said, I believe your personal life comes first. All of us have obligations more important than gaming. Please, if you'll be away or unable to post for a while, let us know - we'll understand, and we can try to keep your character in the game.

    Ping Rate
    Play by Post moves slowly. We may have to wait days to get an action or response from all the players.

    To keep things moving:
    • Unsure whether you need to make a roll? Don't ask, roll it anyway.
    • Not sure what to do? Use conditionals. "If I have a clear shot, I shoot - here's the roll. If I don't, I move to cover and take aim."


    GM Style
    I believe in role play above all else. Be true to your characters, even if it means conflict or a sub-optimal choice.

    While your characters may clash, I hope all of us have an OOC goal of keeping the party together.

    I'm a persuadable GM. The rules are not sacred. Have a crazy idea? Pitch it to me.


    This game is likely to have R-rated material. You have been warned.

    Rumors & News
    Spoiler
    Show

    At your option, your characters can know about as many (or few) of these things as you like.

    • Kusel is a bronzeworking town. This is relatively recent. After tin was discovered in the hills it built up rapidly. It even has a cannonworks.
    • Aside from bronze, Kusel is known for its vineyards and brickmaking.
    • Earlier this summer there were outbreaks of sweating sickness farther upriver at Bek, but so far they have not reached Kusel. Plague season is ending, and hopefully the sweating sickness is too.
    • The holiday of Talassa, dedicated to Taal and Rhya, is a regional festival that happens around the first grain harvest. Kusel in particular is known for its wild Talassa festivities.
    • There is a well-known pacifist/philanthropist, Duncan Vargas, living in Kusel. He used to be a cannon-maker, but gave it up to make church bells.
    • Although it's been over a year since the Storm was driven back, the woods around the North Talabec Road remain unsafe. Refugees and deserters have sometimes turned to highway robbery, and orc warriors may still be at large.

    Ernst Danpur's List of Disturbed Graves:
    Spoiler
    Show

    1. An old man from the Champ, who once served in regimental infantry. Danpur believes this was the first case. Died 6 years ago. A relatively bold case, as the grave was not in terrible shape.

    2. A less certain case, in which the grave of a couple from town appeared disturbed, but erosion may have been to blame. The husband was a boater. Died 15-20 years ago.

    3. The grave of a name not well remembered any longer. Grigor had to check the parish registers to discover that he was a widower who died heirless, leaving a modest spot of land to the township. Died over 50 years ago. The grave was lonely and forgotten in a weed-choked corner.

    4. Two bronzeworkers from a minor guild family. Their family has risen somewhat in income in recent history, but these two died before the Imperial cannon contract enriched Kusel. Died 40-50 years ago. The family plot has been reconfigured several times, leading to crowded and relocated graves.

    5. A family burial from a family that no longer has descendants in these parts. Died about 30 years ago. The graves had formal monuments but had fallen into neglect. This one was robbed in the past few weeks.

    6. An ancient grave with a knightly crest on his monument. Little else is known but Grigor checked the registers and he was supposedly a man-at-arms who served the Baron. Died over 150 years ago. This grave is near the mausolea and the thieves actually accessed it by digging into the hillside beside it, which was easier to cover up. It was robbed just over a week ago.

    Virgins to the Night

    Share in suffering gladly, as a good soldier of Sigmar.
    Sigmar's servant must not be persuaded by the flesh nor by hunger,
    but be chaste, resolute, and patiently endure every evil.
    Flee therefore from youthful passions, lust, covetousness and envy.
    A pure heart does not arise from impure ways.
    --The Analects of Theogony


    At the Festival of Taal, she loosed her hair,
    She loosed her hair and there weren't much there,
    She lay down drunk and she smiled at him,
    And a fox and a monk and a bottle of a gin.
    --Traditional

    Background: While Aquin's brother spent his youth shadowing their father the hunter, Aquin sat with his uncle learning card games. And card tricks. In a society of hunters and gatherers, he was a watcher. This is not to say he didn't learn some of the skills of his people. He can shoot a bow and wield a sword, but tracking, surviving, hunting - these things were for other people.

    His family and extended community was never shy about sharing their feelings about his lack of contribution. Aquin would simply share a joke, make a speech, or walk away. He kept well fed through winning bets with the same few rubes who knew that one day, surely, they'd pick the winning card.

    When the Storm of Chaos erupted over the Empire, Aquin was introduced to a world he'd never given a thought about. It was a world of short, clumsy, smelly people. Yet, they were charming in their way. They told stories of a world in which an elf with a deck of cards could live a life of adventure. And so he did.

    To his great joy, most of the denizens of the Empire have no idea how statistics work, allowing him to sleep and eat for free. He has even decided to earn some money, a completely foreign idea. Heading to Kusel with a package along side a halfling, of all things, Aquin has never been happier.

    Background: When his opa placed the torn treasure map in his hands, six-year old Ren realised all the stories were true: his grandfather really had been a pirate! All the sheep, the nagging goats and half-hearted crops which made up their family farm were just a cover to keep his grandfather safe from 'those who sought the map'.

    His brothers thought opa was crazy, but Ren knew the old man only stayed locked up in the loft for his own protection. There were crazy-jealous ex-shipmates out in the world looking for the map, and one day they would catch up with him. It was foretold by the Nordland woman with the small golden beard.

    From that first evening, hidden away in the loft, his grandfather filled his mind with twisted tales of the sea, of monsters and exotic princesses; all the while teaching him the cartographer's trade. Being the youngest of six sons, Ren was able to go missing for hours at a time, spending it with his increasingly senile grandfather.

    But when he turned thirteen, Ren was sent to work in Talabheim, and the treasured time with his opa was ripped away from him. Five years later, his grandfather died, but not before he'd hidden away the map in a secret place only he and Ren knew. Upon reclaiming the map and amidst the sadness of the funeral feasting, Ren made a solemn pact with the spirit of his opa: he would leave home, find a ship and take up his destiny as the last of the Hardenberg pirates.

    ... and find the treasure.

    Default Re: [WFRP] Virgins to the Night OOC

    Name: Kurt (formerly Kurt von Stadler)
    Race: Human
    Age: 19


    Description: Kurt is a young man of slightly above average height and wiry build, with hawk-like features, thin lips and grey eyes. His hair is dark and short-cropped. Though his accent clearly identifies him as a man of the upper-class, his black and white clothes are quite simple and utilitarian, with no flashy jewelry and ornaments. He makes a point to always look neat; his face is clean-shaven at all times, his breeches are well-pressed and his armor, though dull in appearance, is spotless.

    Kurt carries himself straight and has a cool, alert look – some might say there is a spear jammed up his arse. He addresses people with a stiff formality that most, even among the nobility and the military, find more disconcerting than proper; as if he were only repeating a script or going through the motions taught to him. Beneath his façade of confident professionalism, he is in fact quite innocent and naïve about the world at large, and loses his bearings easily in unfamiliar situations, especially any involving women.


    Background: Kurt’s father, Lord Sigismund von Stadler, was a knight who, in his younger years, often rode on lengthy campaigns against the Beastmen of the woods, leaving his wife alone with their children for weeks or even months on end. Kurt came into the world some six or seven months after the return of his father from one such campaign, which cast considerable doubt on his legitimacy; the fact that he did not physically take after his purported sire only fueled the rumors. Lord Sigismund, either refusing to believe his wife unfaithful, uncaring about it, or too proud to confirm having been cheated on, raised the young Kurt as he would a legitimate son – eating at the same table as his siblings, learning swordplay from the same master-at-arms, and being tutored by the same teacher. Though rather innocent, Kurt was not deaf to the ugly rumors circulating about him and strived to be as dutiful and loyal as a son could be, hoping people would judge him by what he did rather than who he was whispered to be. Being the second son, his legitimacy was a rather moot point anyway, as it was not as if he stood to inherit…

    That is, until a year ago, when his elder brother rode to relieve the Siege of Middenheim and came back in a bier. His younger siblings, previously accepting of Kurt and pretending not to care about the circumstances of his birth, had a change of attitude when they realized that their inheritance now depended on Kurt’s parentage. There existed no way to prove anything, of course, but they were simply less willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. On his nineteenth birthday, Kurt was gifted a fine horse and a suit of armor by Lord Sigismund, on the condition that he join the Morr-worshipping Templars known as the Knights of the Raven; and, by so doing, discard his family name and renounce his inheritance. Like a good son, Kurt accepted the gift and agreed to the terms, reasoning that the aging lord was merely trying to keep the von Stadler family from tearing itself apart over succession. Yet he could not shake a nagging feeling that his purported father, too, may have doubted that his blood flowed in Kurt’s veins.

    One of Kurt’s first assignments as a squire is twofold. First, his duty to his order requires him to see a package to its destination – the hands of a Morrite priest. Second, his duty to his family is to protect his cousin Elodie on the same trip. What the young troublemaker is up to this time, Kurt can only guess.

    Background:
    Born fifth to crazy treasure seeking halflings in the Moot, Rudo Silverpockets always grew up on one adventure or another. His grandmama always said to his parents "That greed of yours will surely be the death of you." Everyone laughed off crazy old grandmama until the one day the Silverpockets family stumbled upon the map to a ruined old castle in Sylvania that was supposed to have some great riches beyond imagine. It was a no brainer. The place was supposed to not be trapped. It was cursed with magic that made it only findable by a single map on a certain day of every full moon. The Silverpockets family was going to be rich. They found it and went in with many empty bags. Rudo, who always seemed to be somewhat lucky and miss the worst situations that happen to everyone else, was off taking a piss when his 2 older brothers and older sisters and mum and pa were ambushed by the restless dead who were guarding the treasure. Rudo ran as fast as he could to the Moot. Once their he knew his destiny. Vengeance and riches lay back at the castle waiting for his return. But first he needs to find the map.....

    Sure thing. I'll make some changes.

    Background:

    "I am Lady Elodie von Stadler. Of the Wolfsbach von Stadlers," she volunteers in a cheerful voice, expecting you to respond with recognition, enthusiasm, and special treatment. If you are not an older noble, or from her region of Stirland, you have never heard of her family or even of where she's from. Elodie does not know quite what to make of this.

    She wears her long hair in two braids pinned over her head. She wears a dirndl of good quality, a signet ring bearing her initials and her family's coat of arms, and sometimes she ties a kerchief over her head. Unless your character happens to hail from Stirland, you may find her attire rather odd, which she will not understand at all.

    Her father is a knight, and the family has a manor house near Wolfsbach, a small town in Stirland. In addition to the squires he takes on, he has a bailiff and a household staff. The family makes some income from taxes from the local peasantry.

    Elodie has recently left home, without the consent of her family, to pursue a career as an Agitator for the welfare of the poor. Her stories of the poor she's worked with are likely to be entirely fabricated, much like her concern itself. She is, in fact, interested only in placating and pacifying the underclasses, in order to maintain the grip of the aristocracy in which she intends to rise. Her concerns are power and influence, and everything else is important only as a means to those ends.

    She will take trouble to get to know you if she believes you to be important or useful to her. If you have a cause, she may profess to believe in it as well.

    Elodie believes herself to be ruthless and capable of anything in her pursuit of power. What she is actually capable of remains to be seen.

    Feel free to continue the roleplay and introductions, guys. Remember that there's also a human woman with a shaved head on or in the coach with you; hopefully BloodyAngel can jump in soon, but if she doesn't I'll move the story along tomorrow as needed.

    I honestly don't know why that first roll was broken - the code looks correctly formatted to me. Anyone have an idea?

    edit: oh, looks like you edited it in. That does not work for rolls.

    In any case: Aquin should've spent less time gambling.

    Just checking in with everyone. I wanted to start the game off with a challenge of some kind so you can all start putting your skills to work.

    Most of your characters are taking a very passive approach here - which is fine if it's in character for them. Just bear in mind, you can't get paid if the coach can't through, and if you end up stuck on the road overnight it could be very dangerous.

    Lynn and Aquin have taken the initiative; how are the rest of you doing?

    Sorry but Rudo doesn't do to good around turtles. He had a scarring childhood moment when one he thought was his friend bit him pretty hard on his hand. So thenceforth Rudo doesn't like turtles. I'll go post in IC.

    Sounds good guys (also, Drum'n'Bass, that is weird), I just wanted to make sure - a GM wants the first encounter of the game to be interesting, you know, so I was a tad worried.

    Speaking of, initiative!

    Aquin (1d10+44)[48]
    Ren (1d10+33)[35]
    Kurt (1d10+30)[36]
    Rudo (1d10+38)[41]
    Elodie (1d10+28)[38]
    Lynn (1d10+34)[35]

    Tortoise (1d10+20)[28]

    Normally I'll roll initiative for everyone at the start of an encounter. Please do not wait for your initiative turn to act; that just slows things down. Post as soon as you can, and if your action depends on someone else, feel free to use a conditional.

    IC post is on the way, one moment....

    Post is up. The turtle hasn't attacked at all, but all of you can see it's turning toward Aquin.

    Hitting the turtle: Normally we won't be using specific body parts except for the crit tables; a hit is a hit. With the turtle, however, it matters. Your attacks get +10 to WS or BS because it's so big, but you'll be hitting shell, which obviously acts like armor.

    If you want to aim for a soft part (head, tail, leg -- please state which) you instead get -10% to your attack, but on a success the shell does not figure in.

    Not that I'm encouraging violence against this innocent, harmless creature of God.


    If your character isn't doing anything, please say so; I don't want skip anyone before updating.

    Moving house tomorrow and didn't realise my whole internet life would change - going from ADSL to mobile (apparently). I should still be able to post over the next few days before everything settles, but my posts will be done on my phone and they might be a bit dodgy - you know what it's like, right?

    No worries Tribe - thanks for letting us know. Based on your actions so far, should I assume Ren stays out of the (potential) fight and watches the rear?

    Also, I edited the post above: trying to hit a soft part is only a -10% penalty, not -20%. Sorry for the confusion.

    Waiting on actions from Lynn, Rudo, and Kurt. If your character is staying put, please say so. Then I can get back to Aquin's imminent death.

    (Drum'n'Bass, I assume Rudo hangs back due to fear of turtles - if you wanted to act, let me know and I can put it in retroactively.)
