Wow. I'm the only one willing to commit to CE?

Its TyrantMaker, not MurderHoboMaker :P.

Taldor

GM; i'm interested and will be pitching a character. I'm wondering if you would allow a Hobgoblin? Seems to me very suitable for Tyrantmaker.

Taldor

Male

Not fully but suspect he will be.

You may want to fully commit yourself to persuading him (Dante) in a latter phase. Its apparent he sees himself as Governor Kapak's equal and thus he is likely to feel spurned if he receives any less honorific and etiquette.

I'm reading but had literally the two busiest days i've ever seen at work so posting is limited. I'm already late to bed updating my own games tonight.

I will also lurk into the shadows once more; but give Castor priority as first to speak up. Thanks all.

For the more minor NPC's, i'm not running it as a social interaction challenge, rather just handling it with one or two checks and role-play. You've got a large bonus with him for addressing him in Tech-Lingua actually. Utterly slammed at work. Still hoping to update shortly.

Taldor

Couldn't update last night. Manic monday followed by driving lesson in the evening. Will manage a comprehensive update today at work.

Taldor

I'm ok either way but Roakkad isn't going to really assert himself too much and provide direction yet; hes the new kid on the block and he knows the best way to alienate his new allies is to start ordering them around or trying to take lead.

Happy to continue RoTRL or do something else. I'm easy.

Alright, I'm pretty sure I just used up every good roll...ever. It's now up to you Irena!

Actually, you've solo'd that interaction encounter... and then some!

Taldor

If you are still in need of another player, I am willing and able. Joana knows my posting habits better than anyone so i'll say up front, sometimes I have busy periods but I do always keep on truckin'.

Edit: I see you have a 4th now, so perhaps the offer is invalid. But I would love a chance to become a player for once, pester Joana and torment her with endless high dice rolls see how our resident play-by-post Maestro operates on the other side of the GM screen.

Apologies if this combat feels a little tedious. I've been trying to spice it up with description but ultimately I know its a lot of full-attacks to go through.

Rest assured I honestly have good reasons not to hand-waive it.

Taldor

Thanks. I was on my iPad and struggled to find it.

Back in action. Updating today.

It has been many months, Ansha, but the graduation ceremony itself was riddled with delays.

Lets take this to IC somewhat; will also give me a slightly clearer picture of your gala "plan".

Same goes for the astropath.

With 19PF? Cute :P.

Edit: Yes, the ticket angle might work :)

GM Olmek wrote:
I'm loving what I see in the role-play thread, by the way.

We can't be screwing anything up to bad. He did also say earlier that this Funeral is about 1 year before the actual expedition takes place, and hinted in his very first post in the RP thread that there is a figure, looking for the right people to begin the quest. I think what we have done so far from a RP standpoint is bolster this NPC's hope that he will indeed be able to find willing and able dwarves to begin this quest.

Fair counterpoints. I don't mean to get anyone's back up or telling them they are doing it wrong :). It just felt a little forced and artificial to me at times, between some rather lovely RP which honestly I have enjoyed reading.

Navis, use our PF to get info on the major three. Things we can use to make them our friends and allies.

You won't have time for this before the Gala; but you will in days to come. This is literally you being shown your villa, bathing, dressing and going. Its all been rushed with an impending Ork invasion :).

Taldor

I think the best thing to do is pick 4/5 of you who will seek to engage the primary three at the Gala; and assign the other 3/4 (likely Trien for example) to seek out secondary targets and act opportunistically at the gala.

Bear in mind you will have other days during preparation for the invasion to attempt to influence others; but its crucial for the defence effort that you win these 3 over.

Taldor

Its good to know I wasn't the only one :).

Taldor

Even non-mythic Vital Strike chain can make very good use of extra standard actions. Alternatively, pair with a Vital Strike archer using Focused Shot and Kirin Style for some very heavy damage.

Taldor

Honestly, when the recruitment RP itself started to push for the actual plot without GM input it made me a little uneasy and reluctant to follow suit. Might just be me but I thought certain liberties were being taken.

Taldor

Male

Yikes. Stay safe!

Taldor

You will reduce your PF before any acquisition tests. You don't have enough time to stall your spending.

Stole it from an old RT thread I used to watch, but always makes me chuckle.

I am the very model of a modern Trader's Seneschal.
I've information vegetable, animal, and mineral.
I know the price of produce and I quote the fights historical
From Cadia to Damocles in order categorical.

I am very well equated too with matters most heretical
I understand the Eldar both the Craftworld and piratical.
About the Inquisition I am teeming with a lot of news...
With many cheerful facts about their acolytes and retinues!

I am very good at spotting fakes or any sign of treachery
My constant kind restraint conceals signs of my master’s lechery

He is the very model of a modern Trader's Seneschal!

I know Imperial histr’y from St. Drusus to Macharius
I unravel diplomacy on matters most precarious
I quote Sebastian Thor on the matters of divinity
And can recite all his sermons with unrivalled magnanimity

I can curse in seven languages with all manner of vulgarities
And steal from orphans and the poor and perishable charities.
At auction I can value what a man has never seen afore
And doing so sing praises of his holiness, Sir Malcador!

Then I can write a datascript in Necron circuit-cuneiform
And tell you every detail of my master’s finest uniform.
In short in matters animal, vegetable or mineral.
I am the very model of a modern Trader's Seneschal!

In fact, when I know what is meant by “Harridan” and “Hierophant”,
When I can tell at sight a Nurglish Death-Bloom from a potted plant,
When such affairs as surprises and sorties I’m more wary at,
When I return to speaking terms with all the Commissariat,
When I learn what progress has been lost in plasma gunnery
When I can do a week without accusal of a felony
In short, when I’ve a smattering of elemental strategy...
You’ll say a better Seneschal has never fought in zero-G!

But still in in matters animal, vegetable or mineral.

Trien is much better suited to Exploration challenges, which function in a similar manner. In fact, social challenges are based off the mechanics of said Exploration challenge :).

Taldor

Interesting ideas. Will see if I can add to it later.

Taldor

Considering every applicant is posting, suffice to say the actual IC when it begins will be significantly slower.

Taldor

Male

Your comments can stand but I won't give any mechanical bearing to them, Silas. Thanks

Taldor

Male

Nay.

I won't accept Silas' last roll for two reasons-

1. I haven't yet had time to write the Governor's response, which is likely to be an immediate change of topic.

2. I'd like to let the others chime in on a roll; suspect that Navis would definitely like a go on the next one...

I have been filling out my character sheet in "My Account" using the formatting codes. How do you actually see how the text will look to others?

You can use the "Preview" button at the bottom of the page, or simply "Save Changes" to look at your progress so far and go back in to "Edit My Profile" to finish up. A word to the wise: If you're doing a lot of typing, copy your text before Saving or Previewing! Sometimes the page will time out if you're editing for a while, and you'll lose your changes.

Only thing to add is that rather than rely on remembering to Control-A and Control-C before each post, I'd recommend downloading Lazarus Form Recovery for your browser of choice. Amazing piece of software on a website as prone to time-out's, ghost posts and uptime problems as this one.

As Navis and Iago said, more lenient victory conditions are not an option.

However, Navis is mistaken about the invested PF. Not only will it make your endeavour potentially easier, it will also grant additional PF upon endeavour completion. Damaris would reimburse your sacrifice... with interest.

I had forgotten that Ludicus was absent. But it still made the most sense to direct the question at him as it led on from Iago's mention of his mastery of strategy. I'll bot his response.

Taldor

GM, as I mentioned in IC I won't really be able to post much over the next few days.

In truth, pre-recruitment RP is not really my cup of tea but I gave it a go so you'd get some picture of Lothar and i'd be really excited to play him. I have some 50 aliases if you'd like to vet my posting/playstyle etc.

Taldor

Are you negotiating for a better base reward, or additional lucrative rewards upon excellent performance? I asked in IC and still need a decision.
