Okay, this is the discussion thread. Please use it for out of character chatter, questions and anything not pertinent to the current in-game scene.

Andoran

Kimefe:

Okay for traits I'm going to give you Reactionary and Rich Parents based on your background. The rich parents will give you another 9000 credits to work with.

I'd like to know a little more about your homeworld (Make up a name, big or small? Desert, forest, water, earth-like what?) What did your family do there?

Walter:

You have 3 hero points, CMB should be +4, also still need to fix the feats.

I'm giving you the Dirty Fighter and Dealmaker traits based on your background. Can we say that he was a smuggler, but he got caught, and due to his parent's money was able to enter the FEF instead of going to prison?

Horus:

Each archetype gives you two good saves, so you need to pick a second good save for both archetypes.

Your defense bonus should be +7, +6 for martial hero, +1 for 3rd level. I didn't clarify that well enough, editing the multiclass blurb to make it clear.

Also, can you list your gear?

Traits wise, you get Magical Knack and Born Damned.

Background looks good, except remove the last line you haven't actually served on the ship yet, but you will be soon. Can you make up your home planet (Name, size, general ecology, etc)? I will insert it into the Federation.

Grunk:

Update character to third level ASAP.

Traits are Rough and Ready, and Killer

Background wise, Engineer and COO work closely together. The two of you will be responsible for keeping the ship running and well supplied. I'd like to see a couple lines about the Academy and FEF in there, but otherwise I already told you I like it :) If it's not too much to ask can you create a homeworld for Grunk too? Just the basics, name, size, general climate/populations. I'll work it into the federation.

Syarha:

HP should be 17 (6+4+4+3 favored class)

You should have 2 more skill points

BAB should be +1, CMD +1, CMB 10

Traits wise, you're gonna get Charming and Focused Mind

Background looks good, if you want to make up a name and brief couple line description for your homeworld I'll work it into the Federation.

Leo:

Leo looks great, no mistakes that I saw.

Traits wise, I'm giving you Courageous and a trait I just made up called Well Educated (+1 to two knowledge skills, and they are always considered class skills)

Can you give a couple more lines on Madae III? That way I can work it in to the Federation.


HP 17/17 | AC 12 | T 12 | FF 10 | CMD 10 | F +3 | R +0 | W +5 | Init -1 | Per +2 Changeling 3, Arcane Hero, CHA base, spontaneous casting,

So excited!!!!!!


HP 33 ⎢ AC 20 ⎢ T 20 ⎢ FF 10 ⎢ CMD 19 ⎢ F +5 ⎢ R +4 ⎢ W +6 ⎢ Init +3 ⎢ Per +7

Checking in, will get the character adjusted and post some info later to day.

@Jelani, Do you want Well Educated to refer to knowledge history and geography?

I'm leaving the two skills up to you. Whatever he would have been interested in during his studies.

----------
Can I have everyone put their character info like this

HP xx | AC xx | T xx | FF xx | CMD xx | F +x | R +x | W +x | Init +x | Per +x

in the gender line of their alias? You can leave the race and class lines blank. I find it helpful to have all the combat info available next to people's names when they post.

Andoran

This is just to cover formatting, for people who might not know:

"Bold text." is text spoken aloud
Italicized text is inner thoughts

OOC for mechanical descriptions of actions (ie. I move to A4, and cast fireball)

If you want something to be happening at a time or place that is different from other people's posts please label it clearly. For example:

Time:Morning
Kimefe talks to Leo in the lounge

Time:Now (Bridge)
After having spent the morning in the lounge Kimefe will sprint to the bridge as the shipwide alarm begins going off. Blah blah blah...

------------------
In combat I want to see something like this

Round:XX
Init:XX
HP:XX/XX
(Buffs, if any)
Location:(only needed for non map combats)

SuperLeo runs forward and fires his BFG at the giant slug while screaming, "Die you slimy bastard!"

Leo moves to C6, shoots at Giant Slug 1.

Attack 1d20 + 900 ⇒ (8) + 900 = 908
Damage 1d1000 ⇒ 98

Andoran

Finally, if you feel like something is unfair, unclear or just not the way the rules are please feel free to speak up.

If there's something you don't like, feel free to bring it up. I'm not guaranteeing I'll change anything at any point but my door is always open. I hope we can all have some fun and tell a good story here.


male Human lv3 martial hero, hp25, AC18, CMD16, F+4, R+5, W+0, int+2

Sure will make the changes now


HP 33 ⎢ AC 20 ⎢ T 20 ⎢ FF 10 ⎢ CMD 19 ⎢ F +5 ⎢ R +4 ⎢ W +6 ⎢ Init +3 ⎢ Per +7

Then I'm going with history and geography as I think those two are the ones my character has been most interested in.


HP 28 | AC 18 | T 18 | FF 10 | CMD 18 | F +4 | R +4 | W +0 | Init +1 | Per +3

Updated to third hopefully everything should be right. Will get to work on the planet creation shortly :)

The numbers next to the name look good, but now I don't know what levels you took. Can you list them in the stats somewhere? Also you should have at least two feats. 3 if you took Martial Hero 3. If you did take Martial Hero 3 your HP would be 25 (28 if you took HP for favored class).


Human Paladin (Shining Knight) 1 AC 18/11/17 / HP 15/15 / F +3 R +1 W +2 / Init. +1 / Perc. +5 / Sense Motive +0

Checking in, will have character updated shortly.


HP 17/17 | AC 12 | T 12 | FF 10 | CMD 10 | F +3 | R +0 | W +5 | Init -1 | Per +2 Changeling 3, Arcane Hero, CHA base, spontaneous casting,

Jelani-
I was disappointed at first, because you forgot to put my name under excepted people...


Signing in; did you want any more on the planet in my backstory, or is what I have sufficient?


HP 28 | AC 18 | T 18 | FF 10 | CMD 18 | F +4 | R +4 | W +0 | Init +1 | Per +3

Thanks forgot to add constitution onto the HP and also forgot to upload feats but everything you asked for should be there now.

Also edited the background, added a description of Grunk and also put some Home planet stuff on. Let me know if you don't like any of it or any other changes need to be made ;)


Human Paladin (Shining Knight) 1 AC 18/11/17 / HP 15/15 / F +3 R +1 W +2 / Init. +1 / Perc. +5 / Sense Motive +0

Ok. Pretty sure I'm good to go.


HP 17/17 | AC 12 | T 12 | FF 10 | CMD 10 | F +3 | R +0 | W +5 | Init -1 | Per +2 Changeling 3, Arcane Hero, CHA base, spontaneous casting,

So are we just waiting for walter to make the changes, then we'll start?

yup took martial hero 3, used the feats to pay for sneak attack, bombs and evasion as well as toughness, favoured class bonus was put to skill points

Whoops. My mistake. >_<*

Andoran

Alright, looks like everyone has chimed in. I'll be finishing up the opener today and then we can get started. Planet stuff all looks good, Leo you can leave Madea III at just a name for now if you don't have time to write more about it.

Horus, gotta ask, are you Australian? Your planet made me think of Australia blown up to like a planet wide phenomena. Lol...


Human Paladin (Shining Knight) 1 AC 18/11/17 / HP 15/15 / F +3 R +1 W +2 / Init. +1 / Perc. +5 / Sense Motive +0

Not Australian, but was definitely thinking of Australia when I wrote the the planet up ;)

Andoran

Okay, gameplay thread is live. Just a note while I'm thinking about it, miraculously the time units used in the Vega Federation are exactly the same as on earth! It happens to take 365 days to orbit its star, and have a 24 hour clock. Minutes, seconds and hours.

If I write Vegan, I'm not referring to vegetable eaters. It's pronounced (Vay-gen) and is the adjective for things from Vega.


HP 33 ⎢ AC 20 ⎢ T 20 ⎢ FF 10 ⎢ CMD 19 ⎢ F +5 ⎢ R +4 ⎢ W +6 ⎢ Init +3 ⎢ Per +7

Madae III's first draft is done, I put it in the profile, let me know if you need me to expand on something.

Andoran

Madae looks great. Thanks.

Andoran

Okay, there is more to getting on the ship etc. But I won't have time to finish posting it until probably tomorrow. I'll let people catch up and roleplay a little more until then.

Am I going too fast? Too slow? This is my first time DMing PBP, so feedback would be appreciated.


male Human lv3 martial hero, hp25, AC18, CMD16, F+4, R+5, W+0, int+2

Yea its always hard to tell what speed pbps should run at, maybe a little slow but i'm good with this pace


As Chief of Security, I'm kind of curious what the rest of my team looks like: how many and with what equipment and all that.


HP 17/17 | AC 12 | T 12 | FF 10 | CMD 10 | F +3 | R +0 | W +5 | Init -1 | Per +2 Changeling 3, Arcane Hero, CHA base, spontaneous casting,

Jelani, you're doing great...


HP 28 | AC 18 | T 18 | FF 10 | CMD 18 | F +4 | R +4 | W +0 | Init +1 | Per +3

I am quite enjoying it so far :D I like the way you describe :)
Speed is just right for me.

I have no concerns atm quite excited to get investigating I have awesome images of this ship :D got like a Halo/Star Treck/Star Wars theme going on in my head!!!


Human Paladin (Shining Knight) 1 AC 18/11/17 / HP 15/15 / F +3 R +1 W +2 / Init. +1 / Perc. +5 / Sense Motive +0

No complaints here.

I'm just waiting the right opportunity to bust out a "We cannae do it Cap'n, we dinnae have the power."

Andoran

Sounds good...-gets back to posting gameplay posts-

Andoran

Details about crew coming in next post...gonna take me a little while to finish.

Andoran

Later tonight I will get things rolling.


HP 33 ⎢ AC 20 ⎢ T 20 ⎢ FF 10 ⎢ CMD 19 ⎢ F +5 ⎢ R +4 ⎢ W +6 ⎢ Init +3 ⎢ Per +7

Would you mind taking a look at the picture of the bridge I am getting an error message stating that the picture should be hosted on anther website.

Andoran

Hmm, I will investigate.

Edit: Apparently that guy doesn't like people linking to his images. Let me find another image.


HP 17/17 | AC 12 | T 12 | FF 10 | CMD 10 | F +3 | R +0 | W +5 | Init -1 | Per +2 Changeling 3, Arcane Hero, CHA base, spontaneous casting,

Hey guys, really sorry to say, but I'm going to be gone most of this week, from today till next Wednesday, I'm really sorry, and if the only option is to drop so be it, Wish I could stay...

Andoran

Oh. That's fine, thanks for the heads up. If you want to stay in the game I can NPC you till you get back. I just posted something to you in gameplay before I saw this, but I'll work it out. You won't die unless everyone does :P

Andoran

I am going to attempt a primitive map for this fight using google docs. We'll see how it goes. Just to clarify a couple things that I'm thinking of now w/ ship combat.

1)You can always take the aid another action, you still need to say who you're aiding with what but it's always an option.

2)If you're manning a weapon you can fire it

3)Shield DR is per round, IE your shields will block the first 100 points of fire or electricity damage each round. So if one shot hits you for 60 damage it won't do anything, but if you take another 60 damage the same round 20 will go through.

This is my first time running ship combat, so we'll take it slow and work out any kinks as needed.


I should give everyone a heads up--I just started working full time and so my post count will drop a bit.
I still should be able to post every day, but feel free to GMPC me if you need to keep things moving.

Andoran

Sounds good.


Human Paladin (Shining Knight) 1 AC 18/11/17 / HP 15/15 / F +3 R +1 W +2 / Init. +1 / Perc. +5 / Sense Motive +0

I might have missed it somewhere, but what stat is used for shipboard based attacks. Also, there any advantage to firing manually, versus just letting the AI find the firing solution?

Andoran

AI has a +0 to hit. You use your ranged attack bonus (BAB+Dex+Feats if you took any for starship weapons).


HP 28 | AC 18 | T 18 | FF 10 | CMD 18 | F +4 | R +4 | W +0 | Init +1 | Per +3

Already took my turn earlier to get my stuff so I will stick with that :)

Andoran

Word.

I've been thinking about this, and I haven't addressed the issue of communications yet. I've just been letting ship's intercom handle it, but I've changed my mind. You all have a communicator badge on your uniform. It's shaped in the emblem of the Federation.

I drew a picture of the excelsior and the Federation emblem. I'll try to get them online soon. But for now, I'll just describe it.

The emblem is a central circle, with three short lines projecting out from it as if aligned with the corners of an equilateral triangle with the point facing up. Surrounding this is the classic celtic trinity knot symbol, but the form is broken at the ends of the three lines and where they all meet the central circle. Like this biohazard symbol but replace the ring underneath with lines as described above.

Edit: They're fashioned from mithril, and lacquered with brilliant electric blue. (Mithril and arcanicite Blue are the federation colors by the way. The flag is a blue background with the symbol in the center in mithril thread.)

Andoran

Okay, here is a poorly photographed sketch of the Excelsior that I did a while ago. Hope it helps give you a good mental image.

Here is a quick sketch of the FEF symbol. The white bits are mithril, the blue should be this electric blue color.


HP 17/17 | AC 12 | T 12 | FF 10 | CMD 10 | F +3 | R +0 | W +5 | Init -1 | Per +2 Changeling 3, Arcane Hero, CHA base, spontaneous casting,

Back guys, looks like I have some catching up to do...


HP 28 | AC 18 | T 18 | FF 10 | CMD 18 | F +4 | R +4 | W +0 | Init +1 | Per +3

Your new recruitment looks interesting and I would have applied instantly but I doubt I would have the time to play it :( I just thought I would say nice idea ;) I have recently been toying with doing the Rise of Genghis and Mongolia with my Real Life group.

Andoran

Yeah, I was in a lot of PBPs as a player, then I got really busy for a while, and dropped out of a couple, then a couple died.

So now I'm down to this and like 3 others again. I enjoy running PBP games, since you don't have to do all the prep at once and I've been devouring history lately. So I figured what the heck.

Andoran

If Syarha doesn't post by the time I get home from work tonight (about 5 hours from now) I'm gonna DMPC her actions this round. Gotta keep things moving.


HP 33 ⎢ AC 20 ⎢ T 20 ⎢ FF 10 ⎢ CMD 19 ⎢ F +5 ⎢ R +4 ⎢ W +6 ⎢ Init +3 ⎢ Per +7

I'm a bit away from the internet atm feel free to gmpc as needed.
