    Default Inland Sea of Tevera OOC

    Welcome to the OOC board for the Inland Sea of Tevera.

    {table]Player | Character name | Race & Class | DM Note
    Simba | Tooth | Shift Druid/Ranger | Howl
    Sliver | Hultz | Warforged Dragonfire Adept | Heroes are built, not born!
    Dunkoro | Beasley | Cloistered Cleric/Dread Necromancer | One day Shrouds will call me Master!
    Scholar23 | Hodge Lorewell | Human Wizard | WHAT!?
    Sgt. Cookie | Alex | Harpy | Not from 'round these parts...
    Cryptorus | Calvaster Marstris | Wizard | Welcome to the Inland Sea
    Ellisande | Kachja | Elf Scout | Feels... poorly[/table]

    I ask anyone who has not yet to please add their birthdate to their character sheet.

    And now the reason I wanted your birthday:

    The Zodiac:

    While currently it is just fluff, I have always wanted to make it into a crunch. Essentially, just as in the real world people often exhibit traits similar to those attributed to their astrological signs, so too do they on Tevera. And since each sign also has a corresponding element, so to does each PC have a certain affinity for that element. I will elaborate:

    Firstwinter (December)- Air - Bow & Arrow - Air, Chaos, Cold - NE - Shortbow
    Deepwinter (January)- Water - Whale - Water, Animal, Law - LN - Harpoon
    Winter's End (February)- Fire - Sword - Fire, War, Protection - LG - Longsword
    Dawnspring (March)- Earth - Spider - Earth, Creation, Death - NE - Net
    Midspring (April)- Air - Lillend - Air, Magic, Song - CN - Rapier
    Endspring (May)- Water - Spear - Water, Healing, Good - NG - Spear (any)
    Newsummer (June)- Fire - Toad - Fire, Sun, Life - N - Flail (any)
    Highsummer (July)- Earth - Treant - Earth, Plant, Knowledge - LN - Club
    Summerfall (August)- Air - Owl - Air, Magic, Artifice - CG - Sling
    Firstfall (September)- Water - Kraken - Water, Trickery, Evil - CE - Trident
    Middlefall (October)- Fire - Gorgon - Fire, Destruction, Strength - LE - Mace (any)
    Fallnight (November)- Earth - Battleaxe - Earth, War, Death - N - Axe (any)

    1. Those with signs that are a specific weapon (Deepwinter, Winter's End, Endspring, Fallnight) exhibit an certain affinity for that weapon, and they take to it readily. This means any PC under that sign has the bonus Weapon Focus feat for that weapon, even if their class does not include proficiency with that weapon usually. If you already have focus in that weapon, you may swap that feat.

    2. Those born under signs associated with an animal (not a monster or magical beast) share traits with that creature. These specifically are:

    Deepwinter/Whale: +4 to swim, +4 to perform [singing], can hold breath underwater double the normal time allowed by your CON.
    Dawnspring/Spider: +4 to balance, +4 to climb, +4 on fort saves vs. poison, +4 to reflex saves vs. webs, nets, etc.
    Newsummer/Toad: +1 natural armour, +4 to jump
    Summerfall/Owl: +4 to will saves vs. enchantments/mind-effects, low-light vision 30' (or add 30' to existing low-light vision)


    3. Those born under the sign of monstrous or magical creature signs (Midspring/Lilend, Highsummer/Treant, Firstfall/Kraken, Middlefall/Gorgon) share some of the abilities of their Zodiac sign:

    Midspring/Lilend: Choose either Combat Casting, Extend Spell or Lightning Reflexes as a bonus feat.*
    Highsummer/Treant: Choose either Improved Sunder, Iron Will or Power Attack as a bonus feat.*
    Firstfall/Kraken: Choose either Alertness, Blind-Fight or Iron Will as a bonus feat.*
    Middlefall/Gorgon: Choose either Alertness, Improved Initiative or Iron Will as a bonus feat.*


    4. Your affinity to your sign's element allows you to easily learn its native language. Spending one skill point on Speak Languages will give you access to your element's language (Aquan, Auran, Ignan or Terran).

    *This feat cannot be traded for another feat at future levels, as it is inherited, not learned.

    And now some IC guidelines:

    If I type something descriptive to a PC outside of spoilers, it is common knowledge and any other PC can know this.

    Spoiler
    Show
    If I post something in spoiler tags, it is considered privileged information that only the PC knows for sure. Other players are of course allowed to read it, but until the PC the spoiler is directed at divulges this info, your PC does not know it.


    If this confuses you, feel free to ask for clarity.

    In the IC you choose your PC's font colour. When you type in the font colour of your choosing, it is considered spoken (or thought) y the PC.

    Example Bob the Incredibly Inept Bard is in Navy.

    Actions are type out in either first or third-person, and past- or present-tense - your choice. Try to be consistent.

    Rolls are done in

    Hultz demands dibs on navy!

    He was also updated with Lightning Reflexes, as the casting feats don't really help the fellow.

    Calvaster shall speak in.... Blue!

    Just as a warning, midterms will be taking up my time for the next week, so early in the day and late at night I'm either in exams or cramming for the one I have the next day. Specifically 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM EST and 7:00 PM-10:00 PM EST will be the times I post sporadically.
    ~

    I know I should have brought this up earlier... So I am sorry for trouble it could cause.

    Well, a free +1 with her longsword is better than a poke in the (remaining) eye with a sharp stick!

    And as far as talking goes, it looks like her hair and eye colours both are claimed... is Turquoise too close to the other blues? It seems suitably cold and wintery for the North.

    And Cryptorus, it still sounds like you'll be on daily. I don't think you owe us many apologies. (But while we're declaring absences, I will be out of town this weekend, so my posting on the 19th-21st will be at the mercy of coffee shop internet.)

    To roll:

    replace {}'s with []'s.

    Suppose you have a penalty to a skill or attack bonus, etc:

    {roll}1d20-1{/roll}

    Or if you have a bonus:

    {roll}1d20+3{/roll}

    Now here is how they should look with square brackets.

    (1d20-1)[18]

    (1d20+3)[21]

    Hey red, just wondering if perhaps my post was missed... Mostly because some posted after me and got a reply before me, and that my first post didn't get any results...

    note about rolls: If you preview, they are replaced by [roll0] if done right (or different num, depending on how many rolls you make in the post) so you should hit back before actually posting. You also can't edit rolls into a post and deleting a roll out of one will show and could look like cheating...

    your right silver, so i can only guess that something is going to happen while it is active. For One thing Red wouldn't i detect Persistent Lesser Vigor and bless ? and can you post when the spell ends or ...?

    The day is Sevenday, 28 Endsummer, 153 ASF. Each week has seven days (Firstday, Seconday,Thirday, Fourthday, Fifthday, Sixday, Sevenday), each month 28 days, each year 12 months. There are more complicatons to this, but none are fluff I intend to incorporate in the near future.

    The calendar date is fuzzy as many would-be empires and theocracies have attempted to establish a universal calendar. The most commonly used calendar, and the one most-often observed in the Unclaimed North is the Thenesian Imperial Calendar. It is currently Year 153 ASF (After the Second Fall - referring to the period of time when the half-orc conqueror Thruk Skullcaver usurped the throne from Emperor Thenacus XII).

    The Second Inland Sea War has been over for three years.

    I will continue DMing in the morrow.
