Against the Cult of the Reptile God - Group 2 (Inactive)

Game Master Chainmail

Terror by night! The village of Orlane is dying. Once a small and thriving community, Orlane has become a maze of locked doors and frightened faces. Strangers are shunned, trade has withered. Rumours flourish, growing wilder with each retelling.



Discussion thread for Group 2

I guess that's us. DISCUSS.


Male Half elf High School slacker

Lets start off by reviewing each others back stories.
My kid believes in Lady Luck. He had a lucky coin in the real world and its morphed into a Shelyn symbol.
As a cleric Mithrellas uses a glaive making him frontline support but not a frontline fighter. He has a plus eleven to diplomacy making an ideal face man for the team. He's obviously the team healer as well.


Once again, the idea is high school kids with rough backgrounds corresponding the character. High school jock=fighters, nerd=wizards or the opposite can be tried for karmic reasons or the effect of making a conscious effort to break a pattern -- abused child has a desire to be powerful, loner has desire to be charismatic leader. The idea is you can roleplay the high schooler in italics with thoughts.

Steve/Strang is defintely the "conscious effort to break a pattern":

  • Steve is one of those kids that's invisible: has never stood out, is easily forgotten, and too-perfectly average.
  • Strang, on the other hand, has had wild swings of "picked on and bullied" to "looming bully" who can sneak around and pick pockets, or alternately grab all the attention in a room just by entering.

    GM Tribute--Do you want us to create our teenager persona or did you plan on assigning those? I thought one of your posts in the recruitment thread indicated that you would be assigning the alternate persona (read: the teenager or "real" background of our PC) for our characters.

    If it is up to us, I will have to go with the "nerd" who wants to be powerful concept (I'm playing the Fighter) as I can't recall a single "cool" kid or "jock" who played D&D when I was a teenager.

    @Strang: Did you realize that GM Tribute changed the character builds to 20 points from the 15 points initially indicated? It looks like your character is built just using 15 points.

    Yeah, just forgot to update since I've been super busy the last two weeks. It's fixed now. :)


    You can choose your high school. persona.

    ah hah. in that case, I am what I always have been: the nerd who enjoys the fantasy world a bit more than the real one at times, and actually has a bit of cash to spend, so I may not be very thrifty at first. But I make a lot of cool stuff, so WOOOOO!

    Mithrellas in the real world is Mitch the mouth because he's good at talking his way out of situations. He's always been very lucky and believes in his lucky coin.

    Durahl's "real-life" alter ego is Daniel Winslow, a brainy upper-middle class kid. 14 years old but already a Junior in high school due to skipping two grades in elementary school. Late bloomer who is only just now starting puberty. Daniel's parents are hard-driving overachievers who push their only son as hard as they push themselves.

    Elgoron's "player" is Louis Redford, a shy guy who's just never really fit into the crowds at school. His folks are well off enough that he doesn't have to scrounge for money or anything, and maybe doesn't quite get how money should work with people. But he's had plenty of time to read and loves his arts and crafts.


    We will kick things off on Columbus Day (tomorrow).


    Make sure you have completed all your purchases and memorized spells.

    Ama's player is Xavier Alexander, a fairly average guy, save that he is one of those that knows almost everyone, or they know him. He's realized that talking to people is just talking, and he is not afraid to be a goof when it suits him. Currently coasting through school, he's one of those happy-go-lucky, carefree types.


    Intro is posted, please check in by CoB Wednesday to keep your spot.

    Just curious, what does "CoB" mean?

    Midnight for me


    One player short I think.

    Gonna skip on playing this game. Not feeling it. Best of luck.

    @Mitrellas: I hope my in-character comment about your flowery speech didn't offend you or contribute to your quitting. That was entirely in-character and not meant as a jab at your playing style. It just seemed like the kind of thing Daniel would feel/say in response to your speech.
