    Default Amanamana Alone Against the Flames OOC

    Greetings Amanamana, 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. I'm sure you already know all of this, but it does bear repeating.

    I know that you've played before, but admittedly that was many years ago. So be prepared to journey onto your newest 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! However, please also let me know how often you can post. I post at least once a day and I'm generally available, but I also would like to know how my often players can!

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

    Hey, Keeper.

    I usually can post quite frequently, almost every night during weekdays and also during daytime on weekends. I'll not promise you that I'll post every single day, because I'm not one to make promises lightly, but I'm pretty sure we can have an acceptable posting frequency.

    My work can often times get in the way, even outside "business hours", but I will usually warn you soon enough. I guarantee you that I'll not disappear without warning or an explanation, unless there's some serious IRL issue that makes me without the means to do so.

    That being said, I'll take a look at the IC later today.

    Cheers.

    All good, I definitely don't expect people to generally have that much free time.

    Hey, keeper.

    This is apparently the first time that I logged on and you are offline. Are you sure you're human, and not just some algorithm or elder evil? Anyway, I have some things to talk about.

    First, I'll post this saturday again, if needed, but sunday I'll be offline, due to some family obligations. I'll be back on monday.

    Second, you may have noticed by now that English is not my native language. If there's some difficulty understanding what I write, please inform me and I'll try to clear it up.

    Third, I'm drunk.

    Cheers.

    Heh, I was on a plane (being transported to a more secure data storage area )

    Anyway, that's completely fine. Thank you for letting me know beforehand though. So far all that you've written is most certainly understandable, so I doubt I'll have too much difficulty.

    Trying to post more today to make up for not posting yesterday. Yesterday was a bad day.

    My dice rolls keep being atrocious, though (if I remember correctly good rolls are lower ones, right?).

    Cheers.

    No you're fine! I understand needing to take a break every now and then. Also, yes, I'm afraid that lower is indeed better, but who knows? You haven't made too many rolls yet, so I'm hoping your luck turns around

    If the goal was to roll high, I would be killing it in this game...


    EDIT: Wow... Just wow. 99 on the stealth check.

    I just realized that I accidentally didn't mark down Persuade when you chose the order of your Occupational Skills, where would it be?

    (For reference the order is: Library Use
    History
    Own Language (English)
    Art/Craft (Writing)
    Anthropology
    Other Language (French)
    Psychology
    Stealth)

    I believe it would be between Writing and Anthropology.

    Ok! Thanks! Sorry again about the mix-up. I don't think this changes anything though, so we should be good.

    I'm on the road and my screwed up phone is the only device with me. Unless I buy another phone, I'll post erratically for this next week.

    Cheers.
