I'm certain each of you knows this stuff already, I just like to have it handy.
The obvious part is that this is the discussion thread for our game. Its purpose is to have a place where all the players can put their out-of-character(ooc) talk. It helps keep the gameplay thread story-oriented and focused.
Have a funny out-of-character quip? Discussion thread.
Need clarification on something? Discussion thread.
Want to tell everybody what happened to you today? Discussion thread.
Letting people know that you can't post for a while? Discussion thread.
How to format your text: Underneath the box where you can type in comments, replies, etc, there is a button labeled "Show". Click on it for a reminder.
** spoiler omitted ** ...are probably apparent as to what they do.
Bold text indicates what your character says aloud.
Italics indicates a character's thoughts.
Bold and smaller indicates a whisper.
Bold and italics indicates a telepathic message.
Out of character is unnecessary in discussion, but quite helpful for the gameplay thread.
Regarding spoilers: I know buttons are fun to push, but please be respectful of everyone's spoilers. If it isn't addressed to you, or doesn't indicate a message in a language that you know, don't look. Even if you think you can act as if you didn't have the ooc knowledge, it will be more fun to react without that knowledge.
Pro Tip: Everything in the Race and Class fields of your profile will show up underneath your avatar when you post.

Hey, everyone. This is my new profile. I haven't finished it as of posting this. I just wanted to get a message up in the thread for now.
I'm looking forward to gaming with all of you.
Good evening. What specifically would you like to see in the race and class fields of our alts?
I know, I know, that was terrible.
I PM'ed spinningdice, so hopefully our sorcerer checks in soon.
There is something I'd like to try. Everyone please roll stats as if we were doing 4d6, drop lowest. Preview or edit an actual subtraction so that the results look like this:
Stat: 4d6 - 2 ⇒ (2, 6, 5, 5) - 2 = 16
Stat: 4d6 - 2 ⇒ (6, 5, 2, 6) - 2 = 17
Stat: 4d6 - 2 ⇒ (5, 4, 2, 3) - 2 = 12
Stat: 4d6 - 2 ⇒ (3, 3, 2, 5) - 2 = 11
Stat: 4d6 - 1 ⇒ (3, 4, 1, 6) - 1 = 13
Stat: 4d6 - 1 ⇒ (5, 3, 4, 1) - 1 = 12
Stat: 4d6 - 1 ⇒ (4, 4, 1, 6) - 1 = 14
4d6 ⇒ (6, 1, 4, 5) = 16-1=15
4d6 ⇒ (4, 3, 1, 2) = 10-1=9
4d6 ⇒ (2, 6, 2, 1) = 11-1=10
4d6 ⇒ (3, 2, 2, 4) = 11-2=9
4d6 ⇒ (3, 1, 4, 5) = 13-1=12
4d6 ⇒ (3, 4, 3, 6) = 16-3=13
Stat: 4d6 - 1 ⇒ (6, 4, 1, 4) - 1 = 14
Stat: 4d6 - 1 ⇒ (5, 3, 1, 2) - 1 = 10
Stat: 4d6 - 2 ⇒ (2, 5, 3, 5) - 2 = 13
Stat: 4d6 - 2 ⇒ (5, 3, 2, 4) - 2 = 12
Stat: 4d6 - 2 ⇒ (2, 6, 4, 4) - 2 = 14
Stat: 4d6 - 3 ⇒ (3, 3, 5, 4) - 3 = 12
Eh, that's not too bad. Feels weird not having a single negative score though. I'd be completely okay changing my stats to this. I really like playing a character no matter how bad the stats roll was.
Oh, DM, could you please open the Gameplay thread so we can dot it? It makes it easier to keep an eye on it from the our campaign tabs.
Sorry, had a rough week, checking in now.

Well, that's certainly middle of the road.
Will get profile etc sorted out shortly.
No worries, it happens.
Okay, so.... the idea is you can stick with the point buy, or you can use any stat array that someone rolled. Yes, you can use someone else's. It's a way to roll stats and still keep people on a level playing field. You guys can vote on whether or not to use it, but it must be unanimously in favor to change from straight point buy.
I'll keep the array that I rolled. After racial adjustments it doesn't actually change my scores all that much.
Well, my rolled array has nothing to recommend it, having a total average of +0.
Zerok's is appealling, going with a better form of a bit better than human at everything, or Reishi's one high score and everything else just above average is very similar to my original build.
Will probably use Reishi's...
Current situation: Zeroks' player has not posted in any of his games for 1 week. This leads me to believe that something has happened IRL to prevent that. Because we are so early, I'm inclined to recruit another, and if Zeroks comes back relatively soon, just deal with having 5 players. Thoughts?
Oh, hey. Checking in now. Had a bit of a bad week. I can assure that this isn't typical of me.
If there isn't a problem I'm going to read up and check in. If you would prefer I bow out, then just ignore my post and I understand.
I'm okay with grabbing a potion as a backup healer. I'll see if I can put together a Loot List tonight to keep track of this stuff.
Rogue, Sorceror, Barbarian, Paladin -- that's definitely a damage heavy group. We could definitely wreck some shop.
I assumed Kag claimed a longbow, but I wasn't sure. If that's not true, then let me know.
Zeroks is a bit of pack rat and is grabbing anything of value that isn't too unwieldy.
Kag will indeed take a ranged weapon.
Proficient or not, everyone should grab a bow. If nothing else, we'll have arrows for the people who need them.
I already have a crossbow, but if Kag suggests it she'll take a longbow as a backup. Never know when she may get some more ammunition.
Speaking of which are we using standard 'recover 1/2 ammunition after a battle' rules from PHB unless mentioned otherwise?
I can't use a longbow, but I do have a shortbow. So I'm covered. Although when we have some money I want to get a hand crossbow. It's more thematically appropriate. Although, I guess with this adventure a hand blaster isn't off the table.
Will just use the lock pick roll for the next locked door we come across in this area if that's ok. I thought we headed to the rift again and the locked door.
To all of my games:
I am currently operating with limited internet access. I will do my best to update when I can, but I don't think I will have internet until at least monday.
If I am a player in your game, please bot me. If I am a GM, know that I haven't dropped the game and I am committed to keeping it going. Thank you.
Just want to give an update to my games, as I don't have time for a super long post today:
First, I am sorry about the radio silence, but what was supposed to be resolved on Monday with my internet has stretched into Wednesday. I will update everything then.
Apologies for my lack of communication, and know that this is not normal for me.
