    Default Lands of Yore (OOC)

    IMPORTANT:
    Please check your info to make sure it is all correct. I'm imagining us starting in a village or very small town. Please say if you imagine yourself a native, a non-native resident, or a traveler. Conversely, if you would prefer to be one of the characters to be "sought out" instead of one of the first to witness/fight off the initial attack, please say where you imagine your character would be. Thanks!

    Summary of where we are: Half a dozen human kingdoms on the mainland, Elves in single kingdom in forests and islands to the north, dwarfs and dragons driven out into the Great Mountains to the south. Orcs defeated during orc wars, struggle to survive in No Man's Land--not really a problem. Fairies and other magical creatures exist in the woods and wild lands. We're in a little town on the north border of one of Rend, one of northern human kingdoms.

    Welcome back, I had thought this one might have died off. I'd say Vanici would be a traveler, and if we're in a town, she'd be paying a visit to the local library - however small, and pestering the librarian about reading related to magical works.

    How are we making our rolls, just throwing down our d6s for our skill + associated ability score? Or something else?

    Info is accurate, will probably either be wondering through or if they are looking for fighters later I would definitely respond.

    Sorry, forgot my character's name: Aldric Aiden. As for what he's doing when he witnesses the attack? He's trying to find peace atop a nearby hill.

    Yep, I'll add in additional modifiers for good descriptions/story telling/RP leading up to the roll as well.

    Cool, sounds good to me. When does this show get started? It looks like the majority of people might have thought this one died, so sending a few PM's might be in order.

    As for the armor: I wasn't thinking breastplate + chainmail, more like chainmail + vambraces, pauldrons, greaves, helmet

    Hey folks I'm here. I think my character would be a traveler, and it would be good if he were involved in the initial fight.

    Okay equipment?

    How about:


    • Bow, arrows, string, quiver
    • Chainmail and shield
    • 2 spears, sword, dagger
    • Fine clothing
    • Personal Gear: A small bundle, very portable, that includes
    underclothes (which double as nightclothes), hairbrush,
    towel, blankets, a razor; some money, documents (scroll of pedigree, maps)
    a set of travel clothing, and soap.
    .•Travel Gear: Including a tent (with cord and stakes),
    a blanket, cooking and eating materials, horse-tending
    equipment, horse blankets, cold weather and rain cloaks,
    a few rags, etc.
    .• War/Campaign Gear: This includes things for extended military
    campaigning, such as a few pairs of warm socks, a spare cloak,
    curry brushes, a length of rope, whetstones, some paint and a brush to touch up shield devices, a lance and a spare sword,
    several bits of armor for makeshift repairs, a keg of rough
    sand (to polish chaimail), a couple bottles of
    wine.

    .• A horse "Sprinkles" er... "Doom Stomp", and another horse "Spare"

    As far as stats go?

    I really don't know. I defer to the GM.

    I'd like my PC to have all limbs, and senses intact, and be able to:

    Ride

    Fire arrows

    Swing swords

    Track

    Sneak

    Heal (non-magical first aid)

    Hide

    Climb

    Swim

    Sometimes Convince

    Etc.

    Please post what I must do without linking to a long PDF (My phone doesn't save them, and it takes a long time to load).

    Thanks.

    Well, it looks like your PC is sitting as:

    2D8HP - Talisker Skye
    Stats: TBD
    Skills: Athlete:1d, Knight:2d, Healer:1d, Hunter:1d, Persuader:1d
    Equipment:TBD


    Why not try Ranger (replacing Knight/Hunter/Athlete for 3d6), Negotiator 2d6, and Medic 1d6 - That should cover all your bases for shooting, fighting, talking, healing, tracking, riding and all the bits in between.

    For a Stat block, probably Agi focused with some /StrInt for healing/talking and sword swinging
    Perhaps something like:

    STR 6
    AGI 7
    INT 5
    SPR 4


    Gives you plenty of balance in all the adventuring fields you're looking to cover, but that's just my 2-cents.

    Looks good to me, thanks!

    As a father of a one year old (and a 12 years old), I fear that our fearless leader may not be able to devote much time to being a gamemaster.

    Yep, no problem.

    I expect as much as well, but he still seems interested in trying to get something off the ground - likely if this does hit 'Start' it will be at a posting rate of once or twice a week.

    Anyway, I'm here. Veronica would likely be a traveler, seeking out strange ruins and researching via field tests and experiments.

    Based on his background story, I was thinking stats more along the lines of:
    STR 8
    AGI 5
    INT 4
    SPR 5


    The skill consolidation into Ranger was a good call though, it fits with the "failed rebellion" bit.
    Thoughts?

    FWIW, house maintenance is a pain in the... neck, but not hearing your neighbors stereo through your floor is so very sweet.
