    Default A Faerie Affair - OOC

    A Faerie Affair
    Out of Character

    Welcome, one and all, to the OOC thread for A Faerie Affair: a fey campaign for D&D 5th edition. This thread is for all out-of-character chat, socialising, rules discussions and so on. If a dice roll doesn't work in the IC thread, you can repeat it here.

    The IC thread is here.
    The Roll20 page is here.



    Some ground rules:
    • No PvP. Including theft.
    • Please post in the IC thread at least once per day. If you can't do that, make sure you let me know in advance.
    • Please include a summary of your character's current status in your IC posts. Include as a minimum: Name, AC, Passive Perception, Save DCs (for spells, ki, manoeuvres, etc.).
    • The DM's decision is final.

    And clarifications:
    • All human-shaped fey (so not faerie dragons) are affected by humanoid-only spells and effects, such as Calm Emotions and Hold Person.
    • Creatures that are immune to Sleep still subtract HP from the pool.
    • A ‘critical hit’ is always a hit, regardless of AC.
    • Magic items cannot be identified without the Identify spell.
    • A natural one on a d20 roll is always an automatic fail, and a natural 20 is always an automatic success. Ties go to the PC.
    • You may elect to deal non-lethal damage with a ranged weapon. If you do so, you suffer a -5 to-hit modifier.
    • All NPCs are speaking in Sylvan, except where noted using triangle brackets.

    Player Characters:

    Player Character Race Class Gender Character Sheet Speech
    WindStruck Astra Glitterwing Pixie Abjurer 2 Female Link Vivid Red
    Majin Korialstrasz Faerie Dragon Prairie Druid 2 Male Link Dark Green

    tgva8889 Orianna Blossomheart Half-Nymph Paladin 2 Female Link Blaze Orange
    Ramsus Sakura the Three Star Zashiki-Warashi Bard 2 Female Link Light Orchid

    Please note that Magenta (FF00FF), Deep Magenta (CC00CC), Purple (800080) and Blackberry (4D0036) are reserved for the DM and NPCs.

    I have arrived, and Orianna would speak in this color. I will use bold to indicate specific chants or verse relevant to Orianna's discovery if it comes up, and italics for her inner thoughts.

    I'll take pink unless anyone has trouble reading this, it is kind of light. Otherwise I'll take teal I suppose. I'll also use italics for thoughts.
    Edit: I'll make my speech bold too, I think that makes it easier to read.

    Since Astra has Comprehend Languages and given the Identify rules, I'll swap out Comprehend Languages for Identify. I'd swap out Mending for something else but.... there's really nothing else I want right now cantrip wise. Though if Astra doesn't feel the need for us to double on that they could use Blade Ward or something to protect themselves. *shrug*

    Edit 2: So who wound up with the group cash? If nobody I'll take it since 100 gp is the exact cost of a casting of Identify.

    Check IC; it was given to Orianna. You may pass items between each other OOC if you like.

    I hope you're all ok with how I represented you during the 'FMV'. I threw the script together when you asked for a meet & greet time, so it might not be my best work...

    You're all free to mingle now. You can safely assume there are shops that sell tiny items nearby, and I'm sure you could get a 100gp pearl to use as a focus without much trouble. Note that I won't be giving away magic items willy-nilly. I only put that rule in there because I like Identify. Probably because I grew up on the Baldur's Gate video games.

    I was fine with it, it's cool that I read the other's spoiler stuff too right? I actually hope people read mine, I found it really amusing.

    So I assume we're in the Feywild somewhere. And while I'm sure distance doesn't perfectly match up (or stay consistent cuz.... Feywild) roughly where are we in comparison on the map? Since it's probably a good thing to know if we're 20 miles away or 5000.

    And.... I cannot for the life of me think of why Sakura would think to ask for the 100 gp so she could run off a buy a pearl right now. It's so much more like her to have us find an item and then realize we'll need to cast the spell. *shrug* Not a big deal. Except when she hands all the unidentified things to someone else to test out if they're cursed.

    Well, that's what I would do, but does that make it ok?

    Actually, you're on the Material Plane. Most of this campaign will take place there. The Shilmista (elvish for Forest of Shadows) is in Amn, just West of the Snowflake Mountains. You're headed to Cormanthor, the large forest between the Sea of Fallen Stars and the Moonsea. After the prologue, I plan to skip ahead about a month, by which point you will be in the Gulthmere, just south of the Sea of Fallen Stars.

    Maybe Astra can help advise her?

    Yes? No? Is this a trick question? I was asking because I was unsure of how you/the other players felt about such things. I know well enough to not act on information my character doesn't have. But yeah, going forward are people ok with me looking at spoilered stuff? I'm ok with anyone reading anything I spoiler as long as I don't say something like "GM Eyes Only" on it.

    Well, my stance as DM is that I trust you all not to act on knowledge your character doesn't have. If something is really private and secret, I'll use PMs, but I'd prefer to keep that to a minimum.

    Edit: by the way, the text I put in the IC isn't all waffle. The style and content is intended to give you some hints about things, some of which you might not be able to put together without 'comparing notes'. None of it is plot-criticial at this stage... mostly I'm just curious as to what you're all going to make of it.

    Anyway. I'm going to sleep soon. Be nice to each other while I'm away!

    Ah, got back from work only a little while ago. So, I think red might be an ok color for me?

    "I think I'll also make my text smaller like this, if you all don't have trouble reading it."


    However! That pink is kind of hard to read. Would you mind if I took a pink color for Astra's hair, though somewhat darker? "Like this?"


    I also have some ooc questions. For instance, how do we get the weather forecasts? Should we just assume this information is provided by our friendly druid? Also, I didn't realize the season... Astra will definitely need more than a summerdress... well, I suppose even if her common clothes were of a slightly warmer fashion, I'd still definitely need to pick something up for cold/rain/snow anyway...

    As for spoilers, I do try not to read them. Although I can act accordingly and keep OOC knowledge separate from IC knowledge, it still does, as the name suggests, "spoils" the fun and surprise!

    Erm. So who wants to go first? I think I will post after I eat dinner. It's really too bad I get off from work after ninja goes to bed... and typically I'll be going to bed before she gets up.

    Was that directed at me?

    Edit: I think I'd prefer if someone else made the first post as my only thought is to offer people food, and I think that'd make more sense a little later in the conversation.

    tip for any color text that's hard to read - just highlight it.

    If no one goes before I can post, I guess I'll start. But I'm not going to take it very far.

    Ah ok. If it's still hard for you to read I'm fine with changing my speech color. Wish I'd known about that pink you'd found before you claimed it, but whatever. (Still feels weird to wind up using a color that has nothing to do with the character since all the options don't work.)

    Edit: Maybe I'll take red instead, since her kimono has red on it. Which is more than I can say for teal (and gold and black don't really work). Though it's odd that the fairly with the crimson wings is speaking in red and the girl named sakura is talking in red. (Although now I've put waaaaaaay more thought into this topic than it deserved.)

    Well, you can use custom colors if you fill in the characters that define the color by itself...

    Tell you what. You use that pink I made, and I'll stick with that red.

    I appreciate it.

    Now that I'm looking at it, my color also might be a bit much for me, so I might change it. Do people have a preference for my current color or this slightly darker color?

    Slightly darker is a bit easier on the eyes, but not a big enough deal that you shouldn't just use whichever you prefer.

    So, regarding items. What I did for what seemed reasonable and sized to my character was divide the weight by 1/4 but keep the cost the same. Should the cost for other certain things be reduced, or weight be reduced further?

    Keep in mind Astra has mainly only been prepared to help people near her size, sooo, if a tiny healing kit won't do much of anything for a medium-sized character, we might want one for them too. Would also be nice if a tiny healing kit cost less...

    This color is easier for me to read, which is probably important as I'm writing the posts. So I'll probably go with that one.

    As a note, would a tiny character be able to effectively use a medium-sized healer's kit? I would think that would be very difficult, especially if you wanted to actually heal people.

    That's kind of why I was bringing it up. There's weight issues as well for weak characters, volume, as only so much can fit in a bag, and well... realism.

    I wouldn't mind something like kits need to be sized properly, otherwise it makes it difficult to use if too big, or wastes lots of charges/is impossible if too small.

    tgva8889, I don't think I've ever seen someone reply to a post I had to edit because someone ninja'd me while I was editing it and manage to still wind up with a post that didn't need any editing. So.... bravo! (And yeah, you might have missed half of what my post now is.)

    Edit: Well... ok at least I didn't notice anything you needed to change. *shrug*

    In case Ninja comes back and is like "what happened?", apparently three of us were on at the same time and.... hilarity ensued.

    I might have to edit it in Orianna pausing for Sakura to finish or something. But from what Sakura said, I can't imagine Orianna has anything intelligent to say in response. Mostly just awe and hunger.

    Fortunately, Orianna is trained in medicine, so I think we should be able to acquire a medium-sized healer's kit and have someone use it with some remote skill while Astra aids with advice. I think? Unless Orianna needs medical attention, I suppose. My hope is that between Orianna, Astra, and Korialstrasz, we'll be able to patch everyone up when we need to.

    Edit: That was pretty hilarious, Ramsus. I've never had to do something like that before.
