10 Facts About Skittermanders:

1. THOUGH SKITTERMANDER FUR COMES IN A VARIETY OF COLORS, AN INDIVIDUAL SKITTERMANDER’S FUR COLOR BEARS NO OBVIOUS CORRELATION TO HER PARENTS’ FUR COLORS OR THE ENVIRONMENT IN WHICH SHE WAS BORN.

2. SKITTERMANDERS USE THEIR SIX ARMS TO GESTURE A GREAT DEAL WHILE SPEAKING; THE POSITIONING OF THEIR ARMS OFTEN CHANGES THE IMPLICATIONS OF THEIR WORDS, FROM GREAT EMPHASIS TO WITHERING SARCASM.

3. A SKITTERMANDER’S NAME GROWS AS THE SKITTERMANDER AGES AND PASSES CERTAIN MILESTONES. A NAME BEGINS VERY SHORT, USUALLY NO MORE THAN ONE SYLLABLE. NEW SYLLABLES ARE ADDED WITH THE PASSING OF TIME OR WHENEVER THE SKITTERMANDER FEELS LIKE IT. ADDED SYLLABLES ARE OFTEN REPETITIVE, AND MANY SKITTERMANDERS ADOPT PARTS OF OTHER ALIEN NAMES (PARTICULARLY VESK NAMES) INTO THEIR OWN.

4. SKITTERMANDERS HAVE A FLUID OUTLOOK TOWARD LEADERSHIP, DEFERRING TO WHOMEVER HAS THE MOST EXPERTISE TO TACKLE THE TASK AT HAND; THE CONCEPT OF PERMANENT GOVERNANCE SEEMS STRANGE TO THEM.

5. MOST SKITTERMANDERS BECOME FASCINATED WITH A PARTICULAR SPECIFIC TOPIC, WHETHER IT BE THE RELIGIOUS RITES OF A SMALL SECT OF WORSHIPERS, THE INTERPLAY OF FUNDAMENTAL PARTICLES AT A QUANTUM LEVEL, OR THE NATIVE CUISINE OF A TINY ICE COVERED MOON. SKITTERMANDERS LEARN EVERYTHING THEY CAN ABOUT THEIR CHOSEN TOPICS, EVEN IF THE INFORMATION SEEMS USELESS TO OTHERS.

6. AN ADULT SKITTERMANDER RETAINS A WHELP’S ABILITY TO EAT JUST ABOUT ANYTHING, AND MANY GET THE URGE TO BINGE ON A SPECIFIC TYPE OF CUISINE OR A CERTAIN FLAVOR OF FOOD FOR SEVERAL DAYS. THIS TYPICALLY OCCURS IMMEDIATELY AFTER GETTING A TASTE OF A NEW TYPE OF FOOD OR FLAVOR.

7. THOUGH SKITTERMANDERS CAN TALK EXCITEDLY AND AT LENGTH ABOUT A TOPIC (ESPECIALLY ONES THEY ARE INTERESTED IN), SEEMINGLY WITHOUT NEEDING TO TAKE A BREATH, THEY ALSO FALL INTO LONG BOUTS OF SILENCE WHEN UNDERTAKING PARTICULARLY CHALLENGING TASKS.

8. SKITTERMANDERS DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY OTHER SPECIES INDULGE IN DIVERSIONS AND PASTIMES THAT GIVE A FALSE SENSE OF FEAR. SKITTERMANDERS DON’T GO ON THRILL RIDES (SUCH AS ROLLERCOASTERS) OR CONSUME ENTERTAINMENT IN THE HORROR GENRE (SUCH AS SCARY VIDS).

9. EARLY SKITTERMANDERS DEVELOPED A SERIES OF MYTHS AND LEGENDS CENTERED AROUND THE CONSTELLATIONS OF THE NIGHT SKY. MANY SKITTERMANDERS STILL HOLD THESE PARTIALLY SECULAR, PARTIALLY SPIRITUAL BELIEFS; SOME RELIGIOUS SCHOLARS THINK THIS IS A FORM OF THE FAITH OF IBRA THE INSCRUTABLE.

10. SKITTERMANDERS BELIEVE IN THE EQUALITY OF ALL BEINGS, NO MATTER THEIR RACE, CREED, GENDER, OR ORIENTATION.

Confirming interest. I don't know if I have an SFS ID yet. I'll have to look into that.

Looking at the Pregens I would like to play Dakoyo as Mystic is a class I haven't gotten to really play. Also these things are FAR too cute. It pains me.


Oooh, we're calling choice of pregens? I'll take Gazigaz!


Clan Malkavian Blood Pool 23/30

So personally I'm not too interested in playing a Soldier. So I have to ask, we have only one pre gen left...do two of make none pre-gens? or are we just gonna double up on two?

(If I were to do that, I'd wanna be Quonx 2)

Personally I wouldn't mind making an Operative


If you prefer Quonx, I can do Nako.


Clan Malkavian Blood Pool 23/30

I mean like I said, there is still three of us to choose characters. Don't worry about it, you asked for it. I'm not gonna take him from yah ^_^

The Exchange

Male Tian (Tokyo) Human Wizard/4

That is an interesting question about what happens when pregens run out. Either way I am flexible and just wanted to give out a preference for myself.


Absalom Initiation

When the initial pregens run out, a second copy is made for whatever duplicates are needed ;)

As a note, one player dropped out because they wanted a table with only four players. I certainly don't begrudge anyone for that, however! I am going to contact an alternate, though.


Absalom Initiation

And back from GenCon!

Can I get everyone to re-confirm they're in? There's at least one slot to fill and I want to make sure everything is ready to roll for the 13th.


I'm in!


Dragon

Count me in!

Not sure which character I'll credit with the pregen yet. What level is the game?


Right here, ready to go.


Clan Malkavian Blood Pool 23/30

Still in

The Exchange

Male Tian (Tokyo) Human Wizard/4

Still in!

I wasn't aware until I went searching today, but some kind soul put together BBCode templates for the pregen skittermanders! My prep for Gazigaz's alias took only a couple of minutes as a result.

You can find them all at this google drive link.


Absalom Initiation

Did everyone lock in their Pregen selection? I did have a 6th respond that they'll join, too. Once everyone is set, we'll start!


Replacement sixth player, reporting in! Thanks for asking me to the table, GM.

Player Alias: Jimbles the Mediocre
Character Name: Vchk
SFS ID: 330168-701
Faction: Exo-Guardians

(I've never played with a pre-gen before, but I think I've done this correctly. Vchk hasn't yet reached 2nd level.)

It looks like we've got the envoy, mystic, and mechanic taken, with an interest in a second mechanic. I'm gonna go ahead and claim Nako, the soldier. That opens up all the roles for the rest to double up. I should have my alias up and dotted in shortly.


M Barbarian 1 | HP 15 / 15 |AC:18 , (Touch: 11, Flat:17)| Fort +4 Reflex +1 Will +2 | Speed 30' |Rage Rounds 12 / 12

Got mine, AKA Buckshot Bob

Aye locked in.


Pregenerated character (retired)

Nako, reporting in! Ready and willing to allsix this!


Absalom Initiation

Posting to start; looks like there's one person still to confirm their role, but we should be good to at least start the RP.


Dragon

Apologies, I wasn't sure where we were choosing our roles and so was waiting to see a list or sign up of what everyone else was taking. I have no preference at all, so will take whatever is needed.

Maybe a second Mystic (Dakoyo)? Or do we already have two of those?

Also, just a heads-up that I'll be on a week-long vacation beginning tonight. I'm hoping to keep up with my player posts using my smartphone though, so it shouldn't be much of an issue, except that I doubt I'll be posting more than once a day or so.


Dakoyo-but-not-Dakoyo | NG Skittermander Mystic 2 | HP 13/14; SP 10/14 | RP 4/5 | EAC 13; KAC 14 | Fort +1; Ref +1; Will +7 | Init: +1 | Perc: +9, SM: +9; low-light vision | Speed 30ft | Healing Touch Used: 0/1 | Spells Used: 1st 0/3 | Active conditions: None.

Well, I'll choose this one for now, and just confirm that it's OK before posting in the gameplay thread.

Apologies, where in the world are we on choices?


Pregenerated character (retired)

The forums are back, and so am I! Ready to initiate some skitter-hijinks.

By my count, we have one of each role and a second mystic, leaving you the choice of engineer, soldier, or envoy.


Absalom Initiation

And we're back. Unfortunately, I'm going to be leaving for Dragon*Con this weekend and my availability may be iffy. I'll try and make a post a day, however.


Absalom Initiation

So, there is an optional encounter of a space combat, but given that it's Optional and space combat is slow in the best of conditions, I'm going to opt to skip it unless there are objections. It doesn't really contribute to the plot or alter the rewards you get, it's just one more chance to cooperate as a group.

If someone really wants it run we can do it though.


Dakoyo-but-not-Dakoyo | NG Skittermander Mystic 2 | HP 13/14; SP 10/14 | RP 4/5 | EAC 13; KAC 14 | Fort +1; Ref +1; Will +7 | Init: +1 | Perc: +9, SM: +9; low-light vision | Speed 30ft | Healing Touch Used: 0/1 | Spells Used: 1st 0/3 | Active conditions: None.

I'm good either way. I do enjoy the space combats myself, but I also know they aren't everyone's favorite. :)

I'm in the same boat. More than happy to participate, but not feeling the need.

Oops, somehow I didn't notice that we had new posts in discussion last week (I must've accidentally cleared the notification). I'd say I'm OK skipping the starship combat. They tend to move pretty slow in PbP, so they're not my favorite.

Sorry for the delay in commenting! (I was wondering why I hadn't seen activity here in a few days, but it was waiting on me, oops!)


"Dakoyo" Male NG skittermander priest mystic 2 | HP 14/14 SP 13/14 | RP 4/5 | EAC 13; KAC 14 | Fort +1; Ref +1; Will +7 | Init: +1 | Perc: +9, SM: +9; low-light vision | Speed 30ft | Healing Touch 1/1 | Spells: 1st 3/3 | Active conditions: None.

Not a must have but those that excel at it may feel differently. I am with whatever the group decides.


M Barbarian 1 | HP 15 / 15 |AC:18 , (Touch: 11, Flat:17)| Fort +4 Reflex +1 Will +2 | Speed 30' |Rage Rounds 12 / 12

I am fine skipping


Absalom Initiation

Ok. Moving to wrap things up :)


Absalom Initiation

I'm tying up logistics, but if anyone had something they needed changed before I get ready to report (character level out of range, etc), please let me know :)


Dakoyo-but-not-Dakoyo | NG Skittermander Mystic 2 | HP 13/14; SP 10/14 | RP 4/5 | EAC 13; KAC 14 | Fort +1; Ref +1; Will +7 | Init: +1 | Perc: +9, SM: +9; low-light vision | Speed 30ft | Healing Touch Used: 0/1 | Spells Used: 1st 0/3 | Active conditions: None.

Oh boy, a skittermander crew loose in the 'verse! :)

Thanks GM, that was a fun one. No changes for me.

I still don't fully understand SFS credit and such - what's the level range that this credit can be applied to?

Awesome! Thanks for running this for us Wolfspirit! And for keeping us going through all the site interruptions and other slow patches.

No reporting changes for me. The reporting info I posted upthread is good.


M Barbarian 1 | HP 15 / 15 |AC:18 , (Touch: 11, Flat:17)| Fort +4 Reflex +1 Will +2 | Speed 30' |Rage Rounds 12 / 12

Thank you running, Had a great time. And just remember "I can Fix it"

I'm working on them, but something came up. I'll make sure to get yours out first though

Thanks everyone for making this a fun run! It definitely was filled with adversity from the site issues and I had my own share of RL slowdowns, but I appreciate everyone sticking through it.


M Barbarian 1 | HP 15 / 15 |AC:18 , (Touch: 11, Flat:17)| Fort +4 Reflex +1 Will +2 | Speed 30' |Rage Rounds 12 / 12
