    Default Earthen Rite's Alone Against the Flames OOC

    Greetings Earthen Rite, and welcome to the world of Call of Cthulhu, a world of horror, mystery, and wonder. Here you shall take on the role of an intrepid Investigator of the Unknown (or Investigator for short), while I shall be the Keeper of Arcane Lore (or the Keeper).

    Now, one important thing to note is that this game is not Dungeons & Dragons. You are not a hero, you are not a being who is eventually able to snap your fingers and cast Wish or attack nine times with a massive sword in the span of six seconds, you are an ordinary person, and just like ordinary people, you may become heavily injured (HP isn't just something that magically returns with a quick nap), suffer sanity-shattering experiences, or even die! However, someone has to make a stand against the horrors of the mythos, and the death or insanity of a single human matters little if it means postponing the eventual enslavement of humanity.

    However, you may be one of the lucky ones who survive your encounters with unearthly beings, gaining knowledge of the horrors outside of our reality, power from volumes of arcane lore, and advancement in your skills as you become more experienced. You will (most likely) never reach the point of superhuman abilities akin to D&D or Pathfinder, but you can achieve something greater than the average of your kind.

    Now that you understand the basic themeatic aspects of the game, prepare to journey onto your first adventure -- Alone Against the Flames! This is a horror story set in the 1920s where you are the main character. For the purposes of walking you through the story I will offer prompts and suggestions below each of my In-Character posts, but if you're feeling foolish confident feel free to forge your own path!

    Anyway, without further ado, tuck yourself in, grab a bowl of popcorn, set up a nice fire, and join the In-Character (link forthcoming)! Actually, on second thought, don't get too close to the fire.

    Also, I'm sure it goes without saying, but please try not to view the other players' ICs and OOCs!

    It's actually Strategicon, so no need to be jealous (although there was a lot of D&D played haha)

    Congratulations! You've done it! You've managed to beat Alone Against the Flames. Your character has forever been changed by what they've experienced in Emberhead, and they might not ever be the same. Nevertheless, they will most likely improve!

    You succeeded in the following skill rolls: History, Psychology, and Spot Hidden. For each of these please give me a roll, however your goal is to fail instead of succeed. If you fail, it's representative of you understanding that there's some way that you could have improved and you may add a d10 to that skill's rating.

    Once that happens, if you had fun we can continue into the next adventure: Paper Chase. You may also read all of the other forums relating to Alone Against the Flames here at the Society for the Exploration of the Unexplained (basically my repository for all of your links so I don't have to keep looking them up online [also don't read the Paper Chase ones).

    I would love to continue. Iím enjoying Victor very much. His regret in anything will be that he wasnít able to get Ruth out. That will stay with him. She tried to help him at great risk to herself.

    Psychology - (1d100)[13](13) - Improvement (1d10)[9](9)

    Spot Hidden - (1d100)[34](34) - Improvement (1d10)[8](8)

    History - (1d100)[88](88) - Improvement - (1d10)[5](5)

    And thus we have the beginnings of your character, which can be found here (technically you don't have 10 hit points, but by the time that comes into play you will)!

    Along with the OOC, which can be found here!
