Something I have been kicking around during my isolation. Art imitates life after all. The below clip got me thinking

Like I mentioned when I messaged you yesterday, I've been pushed back up on the fence. If I can somehow come up with a better character idea, I'll play.


I'll get some stats and a name down later today.

I’m interested! My current idea, provided you allow it and SW works with it, is for Sir Kevin of Humboldt, medieval re-enactor and cannabis enthusiast. He’s in DC for some re-enacting event, along with lobbying for legalization of his product.

He works in the industry up in Humboldt but re-enacts as a knight in his spare time, so basically a weed-smoking modern knight with full plate and a longsword/shield combo.

I am currently making up a character sheet template for SW that will include all of the formatting codes for use on Paizo's chat interface (see here for an example of how this might look). It will include a lot of additional stuff that may not be pertinent to your character (eg. all of the Skills will be included), so all you have to do will be to delete anything that doesn't specifically pertain to your character.
If anyone would like a copy sent to them, just let me know your e-mail addresses and I'll send it through once I'm done creating and tweaking. :)

I have my basic concept down now Pat. I'm playing a Nurse, who does some martial arts weapon training, and shooting practice in her spare time. So she will be a bit of a Paladin. lol

She'll be an Australian on holidays (sensing a theme?). :D


So I do have a few suggestions/questions before I get a character down onto paper for you GM...

Firstly, I would like to make a suggestion that they implemented in the newest edition of Savage Worlds (Savage Worlds Adventure Edition or SWADE). For skills, they gave us only 12 skill points but they gave every character a d4 in Persuasion, Notice, Stealth, Athletics, and Common Knowledge (which was made into a skill rather than a trait test). Would you want to adopt that for this game?

Second thing I wanted to ask was about the Guts skill. I was looking at characters and saw someone had Guts on their sheet. Usually, fear checks can be handled as a Spirit test unless you want the game to be particularly horror-themed. I know there are zombies and starting off, we'll all be freaking out but I don't know if they'll stay scary enough to be reasonable to pick up the Guts skill. Let me know what you think.

I am thinking of being a Youtube/Twitch streamer by the name of Johnny B. Badass, who'll be on vacation and streaming some of the sites and scenes of Washington D.C..

I'm not keen to spend more money after I just bought the other one tbh. Plus I've already made my character and finished my Template.

This edition doesn't have Guts or Athletics (I did think it was weird there was no Athletics Skill though).

But I'll go with whatever Pat says.


Yeah, I’m just not comfortable monkeying around with the ruleset when I barely know the game. I think we’re going to play it vanilla for now, and maybe later we can revisit the issue.


If I wanted to use a Machete, would I use the stats for a Dagger, Short Sword or a Survival Knife?


Patrick-- couldn't find rules for a couple items (silencer, subsonic ammunition), so I made them up on the fly. Let me know what you think.

Other than that, this a$$+&!$ should be ready to go.

I would say short sword would be closest


When do you want submissions to be reviewed Pat? I probably cannot get to mine till next week.


Well, take your time. I can always introduce you later- one of the great things about the genre is you come across random folks all the time in tough situations

All those folks who have submitted a character- I will write an entry paragraph soonish

That sounds like fun!


Also - you can set up a character even if you don’t have them all set just yet- the intro part before the combat begins will likely take us several weeks in real time to accomplish


Made a slight adjustment to gear


How many players are you looking to take? My apologies if I missed it in one of the posts.

Well, there are currently six people with an active interest. That’s a pretty good number to start with, so I think we are good for now.

However, things do often change in PbPs due to drop outs and scheduling conflicts, so what I can do is set you on an alternate list. If we lose players or I decide the group needs more bodies to keep it solvent. Would that work for you?

Eddie I got your intro up. I’ll work on the others tonight


Eloise you’re up as well


I've been considering what I want to make and just no inspiration is really kicking in right now. I would happily give my spot to AGamer70 since they seem interested in playing.

Have fun everyone! Don't let them eat your braaaiiinnnsss.


No worries KHT. Take care!

AGamer70, a spot is open now if you want it. As I said, PbP is a fluid medium.


Found some time today. Pat take a look and let me know what you think.


Ive never played the system so I'll take a look to see what i can come up with.


Pathfinder Lost Omens, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

What's the starting money? Sir Kevin is complete otherwise, I just need to get gear sorted out.

More specifically, wondering if I'll have enough to buy a shield, longsword, and a full set of plate armor.


It would be $500 starting according to the book, but I can be a bit lenient. I will caution you that full plate is a tough thing to operate in. It might save you from chewing zombies , but there’s going to be gunplay in this game, and we all know what happens when plate meets gunpowder

Looks good! I’ll write you up an intro scene


Pathfinder Lost Omens, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Alright. I'm certainly aware that armor and bullets aren't a great mix, but it's a risk I'm willing to take. I took the loyal hindrance so I could increase my starting money, any chance that could just be most of a suit of full plate instead?

Edit: Just had a crazy idea for a kevlar vest and plate to cover up the rest. Something for the future maybe.

You

Patrick Curtin wrote:

OK. Just going through the rules a bit. So, as of now we have:

David
Flash
Shadow
Stiehl9s
KingHotTrash
Helikon

I know some others evinced early interest, but they haven’t posted after I made the decision to go with SW. If you are still interested in playing, please comment and I will add your names to the list. If your name IS on the above list, please confirm you are still interested in the game and start thinking of a character

KingHotTrash has been replaced by AGAmer70 though.

Game has started btw, so if you don't get up a character soonish, we may have to encounter you after the initial setup/grouping.


Helikon, I know you set up a character sheet on another site, but if you could make an avatar here I’ll get you an intro scene.

Everyone else: if you can set up an avatar even if you haven’t got your information set yet, I can get the game started off.


Pathfinder Lost Omens, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Just got accepted into another game, so in the interests of not having my PbP load be too heavy I think I’ll sit this one out.


No worries Simeon. Good luck with the new game!

Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo......!

A thousand curses that I have missed this!

And you arrived at SW as the Best. System. Ever. all on your own! I'm so proud of you. =)

Wait! Wait! I have stuff!

SW has a free run down of its rules. (This is for the Deluxe Edition, but there is not so much difference between Deluxe and the new edition, SWADE, that the gist is still there.)

So too, there is a handy-dandy guide of things to do in combat that are NOT attacking!

(SW is so awesome. This one time I killed a guy with Yo Momma jokes. =)

Ah well, do keep me in mind.

...this morning's unprecedented solar eclipse is no cause for alarm...

Lemme get a character together. =]


Ok if another slot slides open count me in!


I’ll keep you in mind. We might have an opening


Edelsmerge, we have an opening. Make up a character and I’ll think of an introduction


OK. Looking at the player list

David - temporary hiatus
Flash - playing
Shadow - playing
Stiehl9s - MIA
KingHotTrash -bowed out
Helikon -playing
Atlas2112- playing
AGamer70 - MIA
Simeon - Bowed out
Edelsmirge- subbing in

So currently Active:
Flash
Shadow
Helicon
Atlas2112

With Edelsmirge as a possible add if he decides to participate.

I’m going to give the MIA crew a few extra days to declare, then I’m going to assume they ghosted. If anyone not active wants to be active, make a character and post with that character on the discussion page. If none of the MIA/substitutes decide to come on, I might have to reopen recruitment


Can someone help me build a character?


I got it figured out (edelsmirge here)

Fantastic! Welcome to the team. Now I just have to figure out a good intro ...


I am going to change heroic to loyal as I took two majors and a minor instead of the other way around lol
