    No problem!
    When you're ready to start playing, follow that link at the top of this thread to the city streets and introduce your character. That's the generic IC thread, and you'll split off from there into a private thread, either by yourself or with allies you pick up in that public thread.

    And remember, you have to be somewhat proactive, especially at first. Things won't just happen to you if you sit there doing nothing. Riz isn't going to push a plot on you if you don't bite the hook (usually...).

    The Town Crier has some generic plot hooks, and you can pick up other quests in The Sad Flint either from the Job Board or by asking the right questions. You can also just venture off into the city at random and look for other plot hooks that are less obvious. Totally up to you.

    I was just about to say something like that. This is good advice.

    I think I will go with Grey as my speech color, with italics for thought, and "quotations for speech".

    I have an idea. Would it be possible to use the Fundamental "Liquid Night" to create ink over somebody, thus blinding them?

    @Book Wombat You have to do something to get a response IC. Right now, you've only talked about what you're going to do and have not actually done anything. Rizban only responds to your character's actions, not their thoughts or intentions. Check out my posts in the Plaza thread to see how I describe my actual actions.

    You'll have to wait for a ruling from Rizban, but it's a a range of touch, so you might be able to with a touch attack. I know he allows creative use of spells like that, but it's something he'll have to weigh in on. My gut reaction is yes, and I'd allow it if I was DMing your character. Might not make them blinded entirely though, maybe just cause them to suffer a miss chance on attacks or give it a save to resist or something. I mean, it is a cantrip.

    Good to see you're back! If you join up with me and PeacefulOak, we can have all the halflings in one party. Bring down the tall folk!

    What Jeriah said. I don't respond to intentions or plans, unless you actually act. I've had too many problem players who say they intend to do something and then throw fits about "not actually doing that, just thinking about it" if/when it goes poorly and demanding a retcon.

    I'm not saying all or most players are like this, but it's easier to just require players to declare actions and not respond to their characters' inner thoughts while trying to discern what someone actually means to do.

    Eh, I'm hesitant about it, but I could see it working in some situations.

    Definitely would require a touch attack, and I'd probably let them have a Reflex save too. I'll deal with this if and when it comes up in actual play.

    It could be used as a source of weak light at least.
    Is it also okay if I edit my spells a bit? No major changes but maybe exchanging a few (1-2) spells.

    Yeah, sure. It's still the start of the game, so nothing has actually been used yet.

    In a similar light, does my Spell Component pouch contain a sufficient volume of ice/snow for me to use Icelance reliably?

    According to the SpC, icelance doesn't doesn't have a material component, just VSF.

    But, no, your spell component pouch doesn't have 10 pounds of ice or snow to use as a focus. You'll need to use the 50gp quartz gemstone, unless you somehow create a snowy/icy area first.

    Can I retcon that purchase, or should we head to the gem store?

    To be honest, I just got the spell so it's reasonable that I'd need to track down the focus.

    There's a jewelry shop in the Plaza mentioned right there in the opening post. You can either RP it or just say you buy one and update your sheet.

    So, yeah, the elf ranger has a pet baboon. Seriously. A baboon. Seriously?!

    And it's not even named Rafiki!
