I don't see anything on the boards about limiting to a single action per day, but, it would make sense, since each person also has their other, normal daily actions that they must do.

gotcha. What I was wondering is if you say go hunting during the day, or build a shelter or whatever, are you then restricted from being on watch at night, since that is listed as a separate activity?


Well, if someone is spending their day doing an activity, and then is on watch at night, that would automatically make them fatigued. It would be more likely that if you choose X number of folk to take night watches, they would have to sleep during the day.

But, I'm willing to listen to arguments for both day action and watches.

I'm hesitant to give feedback before seeing it, but maybe have the primary columns be Date Used -> Name -> Class -> Attack -> Skill 1 -> skill 2 -> etc. That way if the primary concern at the moment is Suvival, I can sort by column to organize them by their bonus in that area. Then, after assigning an NPC to a task, the first column can be used to note what the most recent day they've been used in is. (So, right now, they'd all have a 0 in that column.) Does that make sense?

Yeah, I think so. Let me see what I can whip up here. Do you mind if it's a little wide?

What about something like this?

Okay, so Bree's clarification about the black tower gave me even MORE questions. Was this tower part of the town? Was it a siege tower? Putting it last in that paragraph seems to imply some significance but was it *doing* anything? Quite puzzled here.

Yeah, I missed that tower, too. Would any of us natives recognize it?

That spreadsheet is awesome, Cyrioul, and extremely helpful. Thanks for making all of these handy aids!

I assumed the tower did not belong there, like it appeared out of nowhere, like the army of hobgoblins.

Yeah, I'd forgotten about it as well, but rereading it definitely sounds like a new, mysterious, and sinister appearance. Definitely something to investigate when we can!

I will gladly stand watch at night given that its a better use of my time than a 25% chance of building a house that won't fall over. Im not that bad at it either.

Hey, all. My work trip is taking up a lot of my mental space this week, so my apologies for the shorter posts in the gameplay thread.

@Cedric, let me know how else I can help you get things in place for tracking everyone's activities.


M Half-Elf Wizard 3 (Diviner), AC 16, HP 19/20, FRW +2/+3/+4, INIT +9, Party Reward Tracker | NPC Activity Tracker | Personal Gear Tracker | Combat Status Tracker

Hey, team - can you help us assign Craft skills to the NPC commoners? Each gets one, and while it won't play prominently into the game just yet, it'd be good to at least have a sense of what each can do. Just go to this spreadsheet

THIS ONE HERE

and look at the list of NPC names. After each name, write their occupation as: "the _____." Sound good?

- Aubrin the Green (we know what she can do
- Baldrick the Councilman (he's an aristocrat)
- Annis the Fletcher (I assigned this one, so she's got Craft(Bows))
- etc., etc.

Again, nothing major, and feel free to duplicate if something makes sense (i.e., two bakers).

Wouldn't some of those (e.g. baker) be under Profession rather than Craft?


F Human Archaeologist-5 HP 35/35, AC 18 (T13 F15*), F+2 R+7* W+3, Init+3, Per +8, Luck:11/11 | current:

The way I understand it is if you produce something, like bread, that's craft. If you do something, like accountant, that's profession. But I think some of them can go either way, like profession(chef) for example.


M Half-Elf Wizard 3 (Diviner), AC 16, HP 19/20, FRW +2/+3/+4, INIT +9, Party Reward Tracker | NPC Activity Tracker | Personal Gear Tracker | Combat Status Tracker

Hi, team. I was on the road all day yesterday for work travel, and am just getting caught up on a bunch of personal stuff today. I hope to have my next post ready for y'all tomorrow. Thanks for your patience.

Baker was probably not the best choice of example, since the commoners get a craft instead of a profession per the GM. Maybe _____ the Baker's Assistant, because they can Craft(Bread), but they don't know how to run the business side of a bakery (procurement, sales, distribution, etc.) until we get them leveled up to Commoner 1 / Expert 1, and someone has taught them some of these finer skills. Sound good?

Also, i just realized we had a composite longbow. I know my dex isn't great but i'll be more than happy to take it so i'd have a ranged option that still lets me use my strength a bit.

Sorry about my posting schedule. Ive been a bit sick and have been busy lately.


Not a problem.

If I ever BOT a character, and you feel you would have done something different, just let me know, and I'll be likely to RETCON it in your favor.

Please feel better. And, remember, real life is a priority over game life (no matter how much we may joke about it being the other way around).

Thanks for botting me (delaying me?) as well, Techno. Not that I could've done much there anyway.... :P


not a problem.

As long as I don't interfere with what you want to do, I like to keep combat moving, since I've know it to drag on for weeks.

How does the saying go...

In an RPG, walking a week takes a minute, but a one-minute battle takes three hours.


Just a note to let you know I will be away Wednesday and Thursday.

Yeah, I've been wondering about the gear that I brought with me at the beginning of the game. Can those items combined work as a shelter?

Crafting rules are annoying. I can't tell if I can craft alchemical items or what needs to be done to alleviate that.

I think I already posted a evening 3 action with a take 10 on survival for gathering food. Was that actually a day action or am I off on what day it is/was? I just want to make sure I'm not holding anything up.

I'm in the same boat as Cedric--I'm assuming that my making the poultice is my night 3 action.

Just as a side note since I did something that can take multiple days I did the next days check too. We now have an acid flask.
Edit:
Anyone have any recommendations? With my check being on the low side we are limited to DC 15 being the most likely but still there is some good stuff.
Edit
That took up 3gp of Alchemical supplies.
Edit:
Water filters. Water filters are doable.

Yeah I'll get to work on them as my next project. More expensive in terms if resources but given the circumstances it's a great idea.
