    "Potters of the Caribbean," is a nice touch.

    Anyway, Leandra se llama Leandra. It's the feminine form of Leander, see.

    She sometimes slips into a BOIstrous ROar that always causes her VOIce to crack.

    But Harry Potter didn't even HAVE eight episodes!

    ...oh, wait, you mean the campaign Ends at level 8. I've never seen that notation before.

    I was wondering what the heck you guys were talking about in the recruitment thread.

    IC thread will be slightly later in the day; will edit this post once it's up.

    Regarding E8: it's a variant of a houserule set called E6. Basic gist of it: you stop leveling up past level 8 (6 in E6.) Instead of getting more levels for your EXP, you get bonus feats. In E6, it's 5000 XP/feat, in E8, a bigger number might be desirable, since, well, 5000 XP is a bit easier to get in that scenario.

    EDIT: Get it while it's still hot! IC thread!

    (and apologies to al'Lan Mandrag--I had a bit of fun with the not-yet posted backstory. I'll edit the introduction later, if you'd like.)

    Man, I still remember when I thought C.V. was kind of huge at 5'11" considering his strength and con penalties, but I guess this is par for the course in D&D. I'd have made LL a bit taller, but I was trying to make it so you could tell Nettle was older than her.

    Still, if you were to actually picture the group, the girls would look like they're about to get stomped on by all of these meat mountains.

    ...So, wait, are the class AC bonuses a thing? Not everybody seems to have factored theirs in.

    If nobody objects I'll say that Nettle has the map and is looking for help getting the treasure. Actually, half the map sounds like more fun.

    Leandra has survival, which is D&D's primary outdoor navigation skill to my understanding. She might get something out of the map.

    The roll, if it's called for: (1d20+5)[7]

    Backstory:

    Spoiler
    Show
    A brave Gryffindor at school, well spoken and from good stock, it was always thought that Rob would take up a solid profession, maybe as part of the East India company like his muggle father. He was solid and dependable and had the bravery to match any other Gryffindor. His real speicality was in charms, and he soon found that he learnt charms that he could demonstrate to his father, to prove that magic had useful applications even to muggle professions such as sailing. Despite that he could never earn his father's approval, and when he finished school, he didn't return to England, but remained in the Caribbean, to prove himself and perhaps, learn a little about the world.
    Unfortunately, all the failings that Rob had kept hidden up at school burst out when he left; with no guidance or limits he ran riot. He was not overly strong magically, but when he could Confund any muggle that looked at him twice, he didn't need to worry about any repercussions: couple that with his introduction to the world of the muggle sailor and soon he was partaking of every booze filled jaunt that was going.
    Though normally reserved and thorough, a reckless streak burst out in him and he took to the seas joining crew after crew, and escaping from their clutches only to take ship on another. He sailed far away then, leaving his home and anyone he would have been expected to know, and which he barely remembers himself; he could perhaps name one ship out of every ten he sailed on, and that's about it. One of those that he doesn't think he'll ever forget was the Wolf of the Seas a pirate vessel captained by an tough old wizard called Sarson Skrewt, who feels as though Rob owes him a debt...
    But eventually everything drifts a shore, and so it was that after an unsuccessful mutiny (which Rob vaguely remembers organising) he found himself crashing back to land, and a meeting in the Amicable Jibberjack.


    Personality:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Recovering from his rather extensive bender, Rob is currently in flux. Part of him is the responsible, determined boy he was, but the other half is the embodiment of his recklessness and glory seeking, which leads him into the most challenging of situations, for kicks.
    He is friendly, though not overly outgoing, and coupled with his own inner confusions means that right now, he is pretty quiet.

    Deep apologies for the long delay. I completely forgot about this game.

    EDIT: Which is a terrible excuse, I realize. Apologies again.

    What are the results from Peer into the Moment?

    [EDIT] How long does it take to use Peer into the Moment anyways? I do not think the site has it listed, but I thought it was only a full round action.

    The writing's inconsistent with respect to peer into the moment; it firstly states that you need to make DC 20 (I'm assuming Divination) check as a standard action--then, in the examples, Lavender Brown pauses for a minute.

    The ability it seems to be based off of in D&D, Augury, has a casting time of one minute, so I assumed it was a minute.

    That's an interesting question. I'd guess firearms in this time period are martial weapons for muggle-borns?

    Hey y'all. After a year of no activity Potter puppet pals came out with a new video! Apperate!

    Oh, if you never heard of the PPP, I would highly suggest the Mysterious Ticking Noise.
