    Since Enrik is so brooding then his color will be black, and his familiar is a raven so obviously that must be another shade of black! (not actually.... I was just thinking of this clip.)

    How about Navy for Enrik and
    DarkSlateGray for Oubliet, his familiar? Are those too similar? (I was trying to go for a pair that's similar but still distinguishable.)

    Wow, that was unexpected. I'm not entirely sure whether I should be happy for being chosen or sad because Enrik, Gull, Liam, Azoth, Lindara and "the other one" are most likely going to die horribly.

    EDIT: I'm not using sky-blue anymore, It's teal now

    Uh, I like the color, but it's a little bright on my screen. Could you choose a slightly darker color? Sorry, it just makes it kind of hard to read.

    Honestly, you guys can make your first post on the IC thread any time you want to, but I won't be responding until the 1st. Also, try to limit it to 1 post.

    One last thing: I've been searching and researching options for map-making online. I've gone through dozens of options, from Maptools to the Wizard's tileset thing. Nothing online really captures the scale I'm going for, and isn't that great for grid based combat. I've even inked some of my maps drawn on graph paper and tried to scan them, but the quality was pretty poor.

    IRL I use a whiteboard, but my group is more loose on the grid rules and distances. Any suggestions on what to use? I'm pretty much of of ideas.

    But I'm a bit worried that without some sort of visual representation, combat will get really chaotic and confusing.

    My experience with PbP is pretty limited so I don't have many ideas, either...I'm in one game that uses a Google spreadsheet, did you try that yet?

    Scanning graph paper was what I had been considering doing for my own campaign I'm preparing, I guess it's good to know the quality isn't good.... but was the quality issue just with the visibility of the grid? Supposedly it's possible in GIMP to add a grid on top of a picture, so that might be one way to scan a drawn map and then make a nice grid on it...although I guess it might be difficult to line everything up right...

    Google spreadsheet is... pretty much my backup. I haven't yet figured out how to use it, but I'm also in a game which makes fair use of it.

    My problem is my scanner doesn't put out quality images. I don't know about the site itself.

    Though it isn't illegal, as far as I know, red is pretty generally used by admins so I'd rather not use it in gameplay. Hope that makes sense.

    I always get confused when it comes to casting/manifesting. Does one always need to roll a Concentration check even if they are unhindered by anything?

    No. You only need to roll concentration (this includes skill checks as well) if there is something hindering you. Otherwise we can assume you take 10 and succeed. Or something like that.

    That's actually two good questions:

    1) What time was it when you were transported, in the place you were originally transported from? You can decide.

    2) What time is it in the Tavern? You have no idea. Any magic or devices meant to tell time fail give a reading.

    Generally, I wait until everyone has posted until I post my next post. So hopefully that'll happen by tomorrow. Good luck and whatnot.

    I may be out of contact for the next 24 hours, depending on if the Kobolds that rule my small Island nation allow me internet access. Please try not to burn down the Tavern while I'm gone (It'd be a waste of a lot of imaginary alcohol.)

    The Kobolds were benevolent, at least after I ran a anti-virus check. I've made another post, enjoy!

    D'oh, I messed up the tags in my roll (and as far as I know you can't edit a new roll into a post?), I'll just roll it up here:

    (1d20+10)[10](20)

    This is probably not a safe place for Enrik to be drawing so much attention to himself...hope he can get a grip on himself soon

    Did you roll total 10 or 20 for intimidate?

    Total 20; the bold is the dice roll and the non-bold is the total. I guess in cases like this where there's only one die then I should just use [*roll] (which gives only the total) instead of [*rollv], to be less confusing.
