[PBP Gameday VII] Hmm’s Skitter Shot!

Welcome to Ellinea, Poblano, GM Red, Big Boom and any other Nufriends we acquire along the way.

This game is played with the four Skittermander Pregens. If we pick up new people, they’ll be playing a duplicate of one of the four pregens (unless they are lucky, and actually scored a skittermander boon from Thursty.)

Before we collect the information of the characters that you want to apply this to, let’s find out who you want to play. You can read about the Skittermander Pregens in their official document. You can find the Skittermander pregens already formatted to BB Code by the amazing Ellinea here in the PBP GM Kit.

I am so psyched for this!

Hmm


Woo thanks for having us!

I would be happy with any of them, genuinely. They're all adorable. But if I haaad to pick... I like Quonx. Who wouldn't want to play a quantum mechanic?

Yay! Thanks for running this one Hmm!! I haven't had a chance to read through the pregens yet but I'm pretty sure I'd be happy with any of them. Will read through them later today though!!

Hey guys! Thanks for the invite, Hmm. I quickly flipped through the pregens and would prefer Nako, but really any of them look like they'll be a blast!

Just had a chance to read them over and I'm thinking to roll with Dakoyo!

Finding an avatar for this skittermander scenario is NOT easy!!

By the way, if someone else wants to take Dakoyo, just say so. I'm happy to switch to a different character!

Yeah, you're right, bigboom. Definitely hard to find an appropriate avatar! It was either this guy or a rust monster, haha.

Just go with something cute! Or something that is the right color!

Hey Gang, we should be getting two VOs who are fairly new to PBP joining us in here, Ivis and Landon. Ivis is bringing her own Skittermander, Stitch. Welcome to all our Nufriends! Meanwhile... has everyone picked their Skittermander yet?

Hmm


Hail Nufriends! I guess we have

Red: Nako
bigboom: Dakoyo
Elinnea: Quonx
Poblano: ?
Ivis: Stitch
Landon: ?

And everyone here has also been very polite and said they don't mind swapping around either. :P

Yes of course! I'll be whoever. They're all adorable and fun.

Despite my knowing the mechanic better than the envoy, and my preference for blue, Gazigaz speaks too purely to my love of bards to pass up the opportunity.

EDIT: Also, hi! I'm Landon Hatfield, a relative newbie to Starfinder and a complete newbie to PBP.

Landon, having both you and Ivis on this table will be great. I love having new players, and we have four PBP veterans to help you guys out. I love bards too! Envoy is my favorite class. When I finally earn my skittermander, it’ll likely be an envoy. I just have to make sure that it’s different from Charli!

Hmm

So Landon, feel free to dot-and-delete in Gameplay.

1) Go to the Gameplay tab.
2) Make a post.
3) Delete your post. You will have to hit delete twice!

This will get the game into your campaigns tab, and make it easier for you to find!

Hmm

Looks like I have some choices here. If only I had my Skittermander boon.

Let me look over and I dont mind being someone's twin ;)


Venture Captain, Play-by-Post "Doom Girl" // PbP Events // Play-by-Post Gameday 7 // // PbP GM Kit // // Kobolds in Kaer Maga

Yep, a twin with another name. I think that Stitch is a mechanic, so I am guessing that we will not need a second Quonx.

Suddenly, images of Yakko, Wakko and Dot are running through my head...

So, I've tried these instructions a few times (under different aliases too, which is messing up the players\characters tab), and it still isn't showing up under my Campaigns tab. Is there something I'm doing wrong?

Also, just realized an alias doesn't have the fields to utilize the headers like a character alias does. What is the accepted convention regarding this, if I'm planning on applying this credit to a PC who already has a name and 2 XP? Post under that alias?

Lastly, is there a sort of "Dummies Guide to PbP"? I've perused the GM Kit, but that feels like it's for someone a step or two more knowledgeable than my current point...

When I look at both Gazigaz and Kyrand's campaigns tab, I see this campaign.

Kyrand's Campaigns Tab

So you have dotted and deleted correctly! Yay!

In the first post in discussion, I linked to Skittermander Pregens already formatted in BB Code. If you use those, you should have codes for Gazigaz's headers that you can copy and paste.

The trick with headers is that the only things that show up are the gender, race and class. So we cram EVERYTHING into those boxes.

I recommend having a separate alias for your Gazigaz pregen, since ten posts will lock a name!

Redelia and I have been working off and on -- and mostly off of late with all the planning for PBP Gameday -- on a PBP handbook. If you click my alias though, you should be able to find links to Doomed Hero and Painlord's guides to PBP. Reading those is a great start. And we plan to teach you as you go, too.

Lots of extremely helpful stuff

Ah, I see now! I can get to it from the tab on my account page, but I don't see it when I go to the Online Campaigns tab in the forums. That works.

I missed that first link, so thank you for reposting it. Figured out where to edit the alias to show the right fields... No idea where I was looking before. ^_^
