    Default Sleuths of Sharn OOC

    Sleuths of Sharn IC

    Couple of things:
    1. Try to make your rolls in spoilers in your main post, after the roleplay text.
    2. If you make a mistake, roll here.
    3. All ooc matters go here.

    Couple of House Rules & Variants (new items are in blue):
    1. Non-Eberron Deities are allowed (but Eberron divinity rules apply: no alignment restrictions, no direct divine interaction)
    2. Contacts +1 at level 1
    3. Taint Rules (HoH)
    4. Organizations and Affiliations
    5. Item Crafting: no XP cost
    6. Once a class-skill, always a class skill
    7. Skills Merged
      • Disable Device (Int): Open Lock + Disable Device
      • Perception (Wis): Spot + Listen
      • Survival (Wis): Heal + Survival
      • Sneak (Dex): Move Silently + Hide
    8. The Healing subschool is in necromancy
    9. New Feat:
      Examine before Activating:
      Prerequisite: Kn. Arcana 5 Ranks, Spellcraft 3 Ranks
      Benefit: You gain Use Magic Device as a Class skill, you may substitute your Int modifier for your Cha modifier when making use of this skill

    Elli. This is the OOC. For IC go to the other one. Good though.
    And hey, it makes sense to have init right off the bat. The reporter got the drop on you, and you can talk, fight, or ignore your way past him.

    One last thing. I figure then that Erna reported the body-dumping crime earlier to higher ups, thus she is now returning to fully examine the murder scene.

    The links I have are:

    Erna
    Prometheus
    Rykon
    , though I seem to have mislaid the link to his were-form.

    Rykon's are the format you said were trouble on your mobile; I don't know if he ever updated them.

    Nope, Prometheus didn't feel comfortable applying to be a member of the watch being the only war-forged, and now that he's used to being a roaming-the-streets-do-gooder, he kinda likes it. Also the freedom of not having a schedule lets him make friends with commoners and build a network of contacts/informants...

    I'd do the rolling for most things (as the check is supposed to be secret). But your character should IC spend time analyzing the clue. That is, examination of it is not an immediate act. A place with lenses, good bright light, and tranquility (such as a lab) would give a masterwork or more bonus to the examination

    One thing, I didn't notice before, clue-searching can't be taken 10 with because of their volatile nature. For prometheus's post it'll be allowed, just for future reference.

    Heya'll. I was wondering what people'd make of using Rich's Diplomacy Rules? Seeing as how this is a talk-heavy game, I figure they may be adequate, but because of their changes to DC's and such I want to fly this by you first.

    How is Pen headed to the University District: on foot or flight?

    Foot or other land-based travel is 3d6x5 min, flight would be 1d6x5 min and 1 sp's cost if you hire a skycoach

    If it's under 30 minutes he'll walk, otherwise he'll get a coach.

    No objections to using Rich's Diplomacy rules BTW

    Sorry about the delay all, I've been off wandering around Europe.
    I want to meet Death, Cupid, the Creator, and a moose.

    Death so I can stare him down, Cupid so I can smack him upside the head, the Creator for a favor, and a moose because they smell funny.

    I like that the rule expansion would make diplomacy more specific, but seeing as how Diplomacy is like my only skill in a rp-heavy game, it makes it a bit more damaging for my character. If I was a bard or rogue I wouldn't really care, you know?

    Rykon has no investigative abilities aside from Spot and Listen, he is a combat build but has the RP value of being able to get outsiders among the nobility.

    Prometheus, same question I asked Pen: how do you get from A-B
    Pick one and roll, DC 15 kn local or gather info to cut time in half, representing mastery of the streets and lifts or willingness to ask directions.
    Pick one and roll

    Hallo fellas so one last thing; keep in mind that you have contacts (treat soulknife as fighter for this)
    I figure out, as well, that those of you ought to get one related to your character's membership in organizations:
    Rykon with Aristocrats or some other High-Class enterprise (the maitre d' of some skyway restaurant for example)
    Pen with the University
    Erna with some lawkeeping org (Watch, Citadel) crime org or government group
    not too sure what for Prometheus, but I was thinking a smith in the cogs

    If you have ideas as to what you'd like your contacts to be let me know.
    note that the as-you-level contacts dont need to be defined until you need them; but let me know if you intend to use them.

    As an aside, maybe ya'll should invest in some "ear rings of the wolf" 2000gp a piece, sending stones, rings of communication or some method of communication

    Rykon's current contact is a fellow noble, the Lady Elishandra, whom is an influence contact residing in the Upper Central Plateau's Mithral Towers District. She is a half elf, her father the head of a very wealthy human noble family and her mother from a slightly less wealthy elven noble family.

    On a side note, Rykon's family also resides in the Upper Central Plateau but in the Platinum Heights District.

    Yay!

    Pen feels the need for skilled person of note in the art world, someone who can perform repairs on equipment and provide otherwise esoteric details about forgotten artefacts. Wilhelmina "Mina" d'Lyrander is such an artist, an Artificer and resident of Sharn but more importantly someone who finds out all sorts of obscure facts that she tries to build into her art. Her art is considered "modern" and a bit out there.

    Skycoach.

    As far as contacts go; Both information.
    My first would be Rickey, aka "Sticky finger Rickey" an ex con-man, pickpocket, and ex black market aficionado. Prometheus saved his life and gave him a wake-up call so Rickey turned his life around and gives him the "word on the streets".

    A second contact? Skycoah driver. Bartholomew Progriffin. He's been a driver for a long time and has worked every part of the city, so he knows it like the back of his hand. He asks if Prometheus needs a ride whenever he sees him because he knows he tips well. Bart has let him ride for free a few times, knowing that he is honest and will pay double the next time.

    No crafter for healing and upgrades? I think a craftsman would be beneficial to you, since you got no ranks in craft.
