As a matter of convienience I'm dumping both groups into a single ooc thread so I only ever to hit that post button once. First the ground rules.

1.Minimal metagaming: It happens and I don't particularly mind it so much. But blatant metagaming won't be tolerated. Sneaking into he group whose ahead of you to get an idea of what's next might be unwise anyway since I expect both groups to operate very differently.

2. I fill in gaps.: For the sake of clarification and story it's not uncommon for me to fill in gaps in character backstories that have remained empty or vague. This is mostly to make the backstory fit the game or to give a character incentive to take part in soemthign he'd otherwise not care about.

3. How combat works.: Essentially I roll everyones initiative and take the average of those rolls as the groups initiative. Same as the badguys. Initiative for the group itself is done in order of posting. If there have been a bunch of posts and you have not posted for 24 hours since the last actions than you'll get NPCed for that action so we can get through the combats quickly. I'll use a battlemap with X/Y coordinates to make things simpler on you.

4. Ask questions: If you need to know something; ask. preferrably with some kind of roll attached. That way I don't have to ask for them. Sometimes I'll roll knowledge checks ahead of time so I can give ou that knowledge beforehand to save time. But not often.

5. Posting: Let me know ahead of time if you can't post for a day or two for some reason. One psot a day is the minimum I ask, If you disappear for three or four days without notice expect to be replaced and not let back in until someoen drops again.

In any case I'm giving everyone a chance to finish their characters or make any appropriate changes they might want to do now that they are aware of what the rest of their party consists of I will post Incharacter threads this weekend with a deadline for finished characters on friday. In the meantime I have to go grocery shopping so I'll brb.


Quick Warning: My first post will be on the 15th. I am going to be out of town with minimal access to the net from the 13th to the 15th, back in town the evening of the 15th. Didn't think we would be starting so fast :)

But I WILL be posting on the 15th (Sunday) :)

Lets get to work baby!


Male Human (Chelaxian) Inquisitor of Milani (Preacher archetype) 4

Caldazar is ready to begin once all others are gathered. Only pending changes are filling in the bits and pieces equipment (sacks n bags n whatnot). Feel free to massage my backstory as much as you like :)

I can confirm that I have read the rules and have no issues. Once a day is easy for me. For reference I am GMT +8 in Malaysia.


Am ready.


Male Human Witch 5

Me and the rat are good to go.

Scratch that, forgot to note how much tin I have left over. That will be on the sheet tonight.

Other than that we are ready to begin the heartwarming story of a boy and his rat. Council of Thieves, the feel good movie of the year!

Cheliax

Male Human (Chelaxian) Wizard (Banishment) 3

Ready!


Male Dwarf Monk/2

I think I'm almost ready to go. This will be my Tok for this campaign.

I need to update my background for how I arrived in Westcrown - any suggestions?


Male Human (Chelish) Cleric 4 AC: 17/10/17 HP: 30

Dotting.

Thanks for accepting me. :)


Male Dwarf Monk/2

I'm eager to see how you pull our ragtag group together - we're all pretty distinct from one another. It will be fun to see how we interact and get along.


Rat. At least we think so.

"..."

just posting to let TarkXT know I created an alias for my familiar.


Male Human Witch 5

Oh Fearless Leader!

Given what has found it's way onto the boards about witches et.al. in the UM book how do you feel about in play redesign?

I'm not particularly opposed to it but I do not have my copy as of yet so I'm holding any changes from that book until I get my pdf.

Well I be waiting til a hardcopy makes it to my FLGS so no rush at all.


Male Human (Chelaxian) Druid (Urban) - 4

...and here's LeVash. Let me know if there are any questions :)


Male Orc Expert 5

I need everyone to post here when there character is done so I can take a quick look over them. I haven't given anyones character sheet a serious look or approval so please make any final changes before posting.

Cheliax

Male Human (Chelaxian) Wizard (Banishment) 3

Sclivian Ruttle is completely ready. Please note the slightly different spellbook choices.


Male Human (Chelish) Cleric 4 AC: 17/10/17 HP: 30

My sheet is unchanged save for the edited-yet-same backstory and appearance. I don't know if you clicked on it from the last few posts so here I am again for your perusal....
:)

Looking forward to this.

Cheliax

Male Human (Chelaxian) Wizard (Banishment) 3

It definitely appears I shall have a rather unique group of clients.


Male Dwarf Monk/2

I believe I am ready. Let me know if you catch anything amiss.

Still would like some ideas for how I arrived in Westcrown, if anyone would like to contribute them.

I've got you covered in that regard.

Sclivian is really going to have a bad month.

Sclivian's going to need a bodyguard. Well guess what that makes you?


Edgar is done. Have a look

If I'm the best he can afford, it was a bad month indeed.

Caldazar is ready for rules check.

Or maybe not. RL got uppity. Cash corrected tonight, Azatoth willing. Everything else is good.

Cheliax

Male Human (Chelaxian) Wizard (Banishment) 3

C'mon, that's the five characters of Nobles Without a House!


Before I declare myself ready, are there any gaps in the background that I should work on? Should I elaborate more on some aspects?

Only if you dont want me filling them in myself for some reason or another.

Caldazar-Approved
Edgar-Underspent by 2 points on abilities.
Tok-Approved
Sclivian-Approved
Pollux-two points over spent.
Mr. Zoon-Approved.


Are there any aspects that you might fill in on, then?


Male Orc Expert 5

Alot.

Who your owner was.
The exact nature of the torment you endured.
Who the slaves were you freed.
Your tutors and mentors that made you an inquisitor.

I can go on. Really you only need to fill in the bits you feel are really important to you.


I'll tell you right now that the exact nature of the torment Rhys endured is "unspeakable". Fill in everything else if you need to (after I've revised) but that part? Please do not.

As you wish.


Thank you. I don't mean to be difficult.

My stats are underspent? You sure?

You said 20 points right?

STR 12 2 points (this becomes 14 with the human bonus)
DEX 16 10 points
CON 12 2 points
INT 13 3 points
WIS 14 5 points
CHA 8 -2 points

20 points total

Unless I am missing something.

I was assuming:

14 5
14 5 +2 Racial Bonus.
12 2
13 3
14 5
8 -2

But then I always assume max efficiency. It's my inner optimizer at work. :P

Honestly when I was building him I totally forgot that I HAD the +2 bonus for being human. My brain was stuck in 3.5 dnd mode

So I kinda tacked on the +2 after the fact.

Well feel free to do whatever you like with it. You did it correctly, jsut not in the way I was assuming. 2 more points somewhere certainly won't hurt you.

"Gah! Sorry. I blame the rat." Runs for PRD.

Fixed. Pollux is a litle weaker and a litle less wise.


All right, Rhys is finished.

Fixed Edgar (bumped his INT up to a 14)

How bad was my month? I got an Inkpen, I ain't got Ink.

(But, thankfully, I do have a Scroll of Destroy Ink!)

Google it up. It's roughly that bad.

It's more to give a rather sedentary and content character a reason to be miscontent with the current state of his existence.

Well... I never expected to be engaged in a campaign of Papers & Paychecks, you know.

I'm looking forward to this.


Male Human Rogue 1 (burgler)

Dotting, and checkign in. off to a wedding tonight, will be back saturday.

Cheliax

Male Human (Chelaxian) Wizard (Banishment) 3

So I googled Burn Notice.

I like it! So yeah, Mr. Ruttle is like Burn Notice meets Shark at Hogwart's, while Brazil plays in the background. With devils. Then might have to go Harry Dresden.

As a PC, that's terrible. As a player and audience member, it's awesome.

(Incidentally, I had a Brazil + Perdido Street Station thought for the character, then discovered that he seemed rather Harry Potter when all was said and done.)


Male Human (Chelaxian) Druid (Urban) - 4

All the mechanical bits are complete, I'll fix up the formatting and transfer in the background this evening.


Male Orc Expert 5

Edgar is approved.

Awaiting Pollux's changes.

LeVash-Approved
