A slightly steampunked up Rise of the Runelords. I've stayed close to the text for this first part, but plan to move away from it as we progress....

Hello, and welcome to my Rise of the Runelords-ish game!

We are just waiting for the last character to be built, then I'll give them a final look over, and we can get going.

One thing I would like (even if it's in your background already) is the reason for the character to be in Sandpoint for the Turandak Academy's Annual Inventors Parade.


Here! Wits is in town because he's running low on cash and has no where else to go.


Ok, I can't think of anything to spend my gold on anymore, so I should be all set barring DM suggestions. My character is from Sandpoint. Does he need a reason to be that the parade, or does he just need a reason to be in town?

"From Sandpoint" is reason enough. This is a whole parade through town thing (as you'll see later ;) ) so no other reason needed.


Male Human Gunslinger (Pistolero) 1/Rogue 1

After his expedited departure from Magnimar, my character hears of the parade and heads north to his old stomping grounds of Sandpoint. After all, with his newfound funds, what better place to stop by and do some shopping for the latest gear than at an Inventors Expo?


Male Human Ranger 4 (Urban Ranger)

Here we go, just fine tuning left

Male Human Expert/3

Well, I created my alias as Emanual, but I can't figure out how to post on the boards under that name. Any help? Anyway, I got his background up on his profile, but I don't have my character sheet handy, so I'll have to post his stats later. Everyone feel free to read his info is you wish. I must warn you though, I am not the best speller and an even worse writer, so please forgive the errors that you find. As for why Emanual is in Sandpoint, he has good things of restuarants in Sandpoint and has heard that the owners of the resturants will be serving their best dishes for the parade. He is very excited to taste the differnet dishes from each place and hopes to come away with some fresh ideas for his future menu.


Male Human Fighter/ 1

I forgot his description. Emanual is a tall and well built man with spiky black hair and deep green eyes. He wears a long black trench coat over his chain armor, and a smiling silver mask to cover his badly scarred face. He carries a very large sword that looks to be almost too big for even a man his size, and a heavy crossbow holstered on his back. A belt of many small pouches is slung around his waist and shoulder like a bandolier, holding many common and exotic spices that cause a pleasnt, if unusual aroma to surround him. He also carries a leather duffel bag full of various adventuring gear, including an iron pot and cooking utensils. After all, you can't go adventuring on an empty stomache.


Male Human Ranger 4 (Urban Ranger)

This has got to be one of the most intersting array of character names I've seen.


Male Human Gunslinger (Pistolero) 1/Rogue 1

We certainly are a rapier-friendly group! :)

Cheliax

Wintergreen's CE PA IT Geek 10/Daddy 6/Physicist 3/Cartographer 1/Runner 1

Good good, looks like we have everyone.

I'll get started on the main thread tonight, there will be a general introduction, and then a post for each of you to bring you in.

Rapier friendly sounds good to me! Lots of nice dualing action to come I think.


Excuse my intrusion, just dotting to keep an eye on in case someone drops out and/or you find yourself looking for another player!
The concept looks awesome, unfortunately I missed the recruitment thread before you filled up, doh!
Good luck and enjoy the ride, folks!

For me, you can thank a steampunk name generator using my two cats names for a base.

LMAO!

That leads to two questions, one is answered with a url, and the other is the two cat's names...

Ok, finally got Emanual's stats up on my profile, so I think I'm ready to go. Let me know if there is anything else. If not, lets game!

Steampunk Name Generator

The cats names are Harry and Weasley. My wife loves Harry Potter.


Male Human Ranger 4 (Urban Ranger)

I went for the whole euro feel with the first name of a Belgian friend and last name of a Transylvanian ex-girlfriend


Another idear. Clockwork prosthetic limbs. I don't necessarily want my PC to have one, but I think it would be a cool flavor addition to the world.


Male Human Gunslinger (Pistolero) 1/Rogue 1

My character's name was inspired by the protagonist of Alexandre Dumas' The Count of Monte Cristo - Edmond Dantés. I chose Luc as a French sounding first name.

Thanks.

Sorry for the slight delay folks. Not quite sure what happened, but I slept for 13 hours yesterday....

Anyway...Initial posts will be coming shortly, and as soon as the first one's done I'll drop a link in this thread.

I have emails from Senmont, Luc, and Galv could I get one from Mark and James too? nevynxxx at yahoo dot co.uk

Just a couple of things, I know these maps are stylistically all wrong..I'm going to try and work on that, I just need to work out what a Victorian version would look like ;)

For the moment, they are doing what I need, since we don't need to be too accurate with placement, at the moment.

But, how does everyone feel about maps going forward? Must have? Nice to have? Would rather not have? Hexes or Squares? line drawn, or fancied up?

As I've mentioned before, this is a bit of a hobby, but I don't want that to distract from the game.


I don't need detailed maps. They help for tactics so for me, where everyone is and what kind of terrain is all I need. I would like to have them though.

Sorry for the small delay folks. Started a new job yesterday, and it kinda wiped me out last night, and no firm PC at work until Monday....

Normal service will resume in the morning when I'm in a fit state!


Damn you real life. Damn you. I hate it when real life gets in the way of my imaginary one.

Congrats on the new job.

DM, you going to resurrect the OOC thread or create a new one, where we roll for hps, list 2nd level changes, etc. or should we just list it in this thread?

Will this do? ;)

When rolling hit points, any roll of less than half the dice value, gets rounded up to half.


Male Human Gunslinger (Pistolero) 1/Rogue 1

Cool, thanks. Hit points: 1d8 ⇒ 7


Hit points 1d8 ⇒ 6

Just for fun. I'm starting to keep some notes on Obsidian portal I don't think you can add yourself as a player, but if you want to, just drop me an email and I'll "invite" you.

Once you are a player, you can edit the player views to keep your own notes, adventure log, or whatever. There's a bit of info in there about goblins up to now, that you've faced. It costs nothing, so it might be good to see where it leads....


Ninian is kind of annoying me. Any chance I can play Ninian out till we get the girl back to town, then he and the rest get in a big argument and go their separate ways? Maybe Ninian can still do occasional research and favors for the PC's as an NPC later on.

Anyway. If this is ok I still wouldn't mind continuing to play an Inquisitor (in order to keep another caster in the group), just a tougher more badass one. Maybe an investigator brought in by the Baron or something. Someone, more willing to shoot first and ask questions later. If I get the green light, I'll come up with something more specific.

That's absolutely fine by me. I wouldn't ask you to play something you don't want to.

I will warn you though, this dungeon is the biggest in this Module, so it could take a while to play out like that...Especially in a PBP. It took my real life group about 9 to 12 hours. If you want to discuss options, we can do that either here, or email me at nevyn @ anferny.me.uk

The sourcebook Legends and Lairs "Sorcery and Steam" seems to have a lot of stuff.

I'm sorry. I have to drop out. My wife and I had a conversation that included my gaming. I need to cut back on it some.


Nevynxxx:
Not to be too much of a circling vulture, but I noticed you had a player just drop out. Are you looking for replacements? Javell (Zerekias) has given up on running RotRL, as we're about to start our 2nd year of Second Darkness and are only just halfway through, and I think we're going to run Serpent's Skull next. I have a steampunky character I rolled up for a game that never got off the ground (would need to be leveled down, obviously, and background tweaked). Javell would be interested in playing too, if you have room.

Casts Resurrect....

Hi Folks. I wanted to apologise properly for my disappearing act!. I spent the 4 days in London, then got back to the busiest week of the year at work, and haven't actually spent any time in my office in nearly two weeks. Who's have thought opening a retail outlet could get so complex!

I'm about to post in the main thread. We are out of combat, and this room is exhausted.

We are now down two Players, but we also have two volunteers to run their PCs. Probably this will work until you leave this dungeon, then the PCs will either retire, and be replaced, or keep on under the new players, at their discretion.

So, please welcome Joana and Javell!

Hey thanks Nevynxxx. Good running with you again. It's been a while. I'll get the character copied over ASAP.

Thanks again for giving me a shot in this!

Edit: I will ask one question though. Any chance I can change his pic? That's just a TERR-I-BULL picture. No big deal if you'd rather I keep it, I just figured I'd ask.

Glad to have you! Go for your life... I have to attachment to the icons ;)

Just to be clear though, if the original players want to return, that wont be a problem!


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Not a problem. Don't mind helping out as long as you need me to. :)

And hello to the rest of you! Looking forward to running with you all.


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Hey Nevynxxx, IT is third in intiative, do I need to go ahead and post like the others or should I wait until IT's acted?

Ah, yes, post your action pretty much as soon as you can, I'm not worried about actions being posted in order, I only post up the next init to jog pople if they haven't posted yet. It gets a bit complex at times, but keeps the flow going.


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Cool.

Thanks! That helps clear it up for me.


Just noticed Emmanuel's Int is higher than Dean's. *sigh* I don't get this character.


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Well that makes no sense.

Apparently I've completely altered this character. Apologies for the drastic change. I've went and read through the original poster's post and it's obviously quite a difference.

Hoping I'm not ticking anyone off. Just thought it would be kind of fun. I've went with the whole "lack of self-confidence" bit, and to avoid dealing with it, went with the whole abrasive type attitude.

But will attempt at diverting back to the original character. (But I really don't see this guy as smarter than Dean. Wether it's me or somebody else running him. Mainly because of Dean's schooling background. But that's just my opinion.) :)

Again, apologies.

Oh, and one more thing. I ain't changing the avatar. That original one is just bad. I just flat don't like it. That's more of a 2 CHA, than a 7. :)
