    Default Rise of the Runelords OOC


    The town of Sandpoint needs you!

    Situated on the Lost Coast of Varisia, this friendly small coastal town does not know what fate has in store for it, or indeed all of Varisia. Five years after a mad killer called 'Chopper' killed over two dozen people and Sandpoint's church burned in a fire, killing the head priest, Sandpoint's townspeople are ready to forget what is now called the 'Late Unpleasantness'. A new cathedral has recently finished being built, and will be consecrated at this year's Swallowtail Festival. For whatever reason, you are all attending Sandpoint's Swallowtail Festival.

    It will up to you, the heroes, to stop the Rise of the Runelords.

    I am not sure if I GET the starting age thing and if it is important that I change my age away from 28 but I assume 18+training time (which I assume was long for Adalbert since he is kind of an easily distracted slacker) would net at least at 25.

    Gonna use dark grey

    Did you have a preference between the warlord or cavalier version?

    I've updated my charactersheet to mythweavers
    I hope I didn't miss anything. Also dropped the artisan tools because I had changed one background skill from craft to profession but forgot to get rid of the tools.

    Assuming it doesn't get mistaken for others, I'll go with Teal

    Personally I like the Warlord more because it smoothes out the damage you provide to the party a bit more. Challenge is always a big chunk of damage (that is potentially lost when you miss or are unable to attack for a turn or two). That being said, u-b copied your cavalier sheet, not your warlord sheet. This might be intentional, or this might just been the first one he wanted.

    28 is fine. This includes training time.

    Had marginal preference to Cavalier. Changed to Warlord.

    Updated the table. Also, please write your posts in third person ("Lebwen this, than he that,...").

    See above. Other than that, nothing comes to mind at the moment.

    I hope you don't mind me RPing a bit with the first poor soul I found. I am not sure if I get it across but Adalbert is meant to be a charismatic guy who just quickly outwears his welcome by adding far too much detail and words to a conversation.

    Kind of like the absent-minded scientist trope many wizards go for, only that I didn't dump charisma and actually know how to be polite even if a bit strenous.

    Everything up to the morning is already payd for. Your starting wealth is as of the start of the day.

    As for the pricings:
    Rusty Dragon is mainly a good inn, but they have some common rooms (4-in-1). They serve both common and good food, though the selection of common food at any given time is rather limited (menu changing daily).

    White Deer is mainly common inn, but also has good rooms. They serve both common and good food.

    Hagfish has all sorts of rooms, all sorts of food, and all sorts of clientele. It's mainly oriented on ships' crews and owners.

    Poor accommodations at an inn amount to a place on the floor near the hearth. 2 sp per night.
    Common accommodations consist of a place on a raised, heated floor, the use of a blanket and a pillow. 5 sp per night.
    Good accommodations consist of a small, private room with one bed, some amenities, and a covered chamber pot in the corner. 2 gp per night.

    Poor meals might be composed of bread, baked turnips, onions, and water. 1 sp per meal (2..3 per day)
    Common meals might consist of bread, chicken stew, carrots, and watered-down ale or wine. 3 sp per meal (6..9 per day)
    Good meals might be composed of bread and pastries, beef, peas, and ale or wine. 5 sp per meal (10..15 per day).

    Then we can ignore the part where I spent 4cp on an ale. With a 17, she probably won her tug-of-war bet for another ale, too.

    I had to read about crowd-type difficult terrain, but yes, they are it, on both counts.

    Silna's untrained Knowledge (local): (1d20)[12] (add +2 for favored enemy if this is about goblinoids).

    Are you using group initiative to speed up pbp play? So Adalbert and Justin can go in either order?

    EDIT: Okay then, don't think I needed to roll that, then.

    Adalbert has never seen or heard of Goblins. A GREAT start for my scholar.

    Waiting for Adalbert's actions.

    Meanwhile, what posting rate do people prefer, if there is a preference?

    I tend to be quicker to post during the week, and slower on the weekends. But I don't have strong feelings about the rate. I guess my base expectation is I'll be making an IC post about every other day on average, with a lot of variation depending on what's happening.

    I post most days on the forum, so can do 5-7 per week or obviously less.

    I'm on an irregular schedule, but can find time to post fairly often, at least once a day currently. Although, as I'm sure will be true of everyone, the holidays might be... well anything from really open to really busy.

    Yep, Sporeegg, your turn again. There should have been townsfolks' actions, but I delayed them to just before the goblins, to have all NPCs lumped together. Should not make a difference.

    The rest of the party can do their round's worth of actions, but the goblins are both down. We are still in round-by-round mode.
