    Default [OoC] A New World

    It's an OoC thread! Once we finish backstories and I decide on a setting, I'll put up IC, but this should allow some conversation out of recruitment (and let people call colors and such).

    Basically finished mine. Here's Cassius's voice.

    So... any other setting preferences? Right now I'm probably going with my default setting (mentioned in the recruitment thread - smaller villages surrounding a big city, varied terrain around).

    Blue for me still. It's my favorite.

    I'd like to suggest cities/villages, forests, and underground as my preferred locations. I like working in three dimensions.

    I have no preferences. I will roll with whatever comes our way.

    I think I'm going to set the timeline for starting the game to either Friday night (52ish hours from now) or Saturday (64ish hours from now), does that work for people? Everybody has crunch done, a backstory (though, firebrand, I've only got a little bit on you, were you planning on adding more?), and everyone except Rizban's got their color called, so starting earlier might be a thing, but I figured I'd throw out a deadline.

    Rizban might be dropping/delayed. He posted in another thread where he's GMing that more IRL tragedy has struck and that he may end up being away for a while.

    Oh, jeez... my condolences to him. We'll see if he's still up for things, I guess.

    IC up! First time using a tavern, I feel guilty... but not really

    Threw in a map, though the setting (being foreign) should be unfamiliar-ish to your characters.

    tl;dr: Basically what you need to know is the blacksmith's, some houses and city hall are marked with darkened wood.

    I had a death in my family, hence the lack of posting. My posting will be sporadic until I complete the epic quest of vengeance that will allow my loved one's soul to rest, but first, I must recruit a party of noble heroes from the nearest pub.

    Ah, alright, good luck on your quest We can say your character sticks around and flits through the treetops until making decisive actions when you have time to post, if that works for you

    Though, please do take all the time you need - We're all here to enjoy the game, and I can hardly call myself a good DM if you're not. I'd be happy to do whatever is needed to make it work

    Sorry for your loss. I am a complete stranger, and I can't Raise Dead in real life, but if you need to talk I am here for you.

    That's what happens when you have an aberrant tentaclemonster in the party

    Well, there is a school in town...

    Then again people are kind of used to strange people armed to the teeth walking out of The Tavern, so they might be totally okay with a tentaclemonster Velix

    So, I feel like I'm missing something. Why does Velix attract looks? Lacking a description, I'm curious about that.

    You don't get the feeling it's because of any striking feature of his, but more that they know that he's a hero. There's a system and such

    I was more commenting on him getting more weird looks than the giant with wings and tentacles.

    Maybe I get weird looks because I look so normal? I'm very average looking outside of my holy bling reliquary necklace, charismatic pimp cape, and other equipment. Perhaps they're waiting to see if I burst into flames or sprout wings myself?

    I ought to have time to post tonight sometime. I got some surprise overtime.

    I'm disappointed that there are no intelligent oozes. Just imagine a whole town where everyone wiggles everywhere and eating pudding after dinner leads to criminal charges.

    Eh, he's in front of the door. There's people looking past him and gaping at you though
