Probably want to get some

Probably want to get some posting convention issues out of the way, since folks were asking:

In my experience, 3rd person, present tense is common. It's a character's actions and thoughts. Keeps the IC/OOC split clear. Present tense because so far as the characters are concerned, this stuff is happening now, and actions are attempts, depending on fellow PC reactions, GM decision, and/or dice roll.

Also, Drogar's initial post is in present tense, so it keeps things consistent.

If you are more comfortable posting in 1st person, and/or past tense, there's nothing stopping you, so long as you keep consistent.

Thanks Lirriel! Beat me to

Thanks Lirriel! Beat me to the punch.

I definitely prefer present tense, first or third doesn't matter. As Lirriel said, keep your actions personal; I'll be dictating responses to your actions.

If you need to discuss in game terms, use brackets to denote ooc to gamemaster conversation. For example:

I smile at the shopkeep. "Tell me, good sir, could you show me what is on the top shelf?" (I bluff to distract him)

Then you would roll your bluff check.

A few things:Firstly, should

A few things: Firstly, should we be posting our sheets at all, or will Drogar take care of that? First post is usually traditional sheet-postin' territory. Second of all, I assume we append a dice roll to each post as necessary?

Finally, I take it we should not be replying to each other in the IC thread at all, but just making consecutive posts?

I'll be uploading the sheets

I'll be uploading the sheets to the server tonight. Append dice rolls when appropriate. I may roll dice for you if you forget, just to keep things going.

You guys are free to converse in the IC topic as long as it is IC conversation.

Two quick notes: You guys

Two quick notes:

 

You guys should be clicking "Add new comment" to post your actions, NOT "reply to this post." Let's keep the topic properly left justified.

 

Edit: For multiple dice rolls, put a semicolon and a space after the first roll. Apparantly the help will show lirriel stuff but not me.

This will be handy for combat and multiple skill checks. Combat because you can roll to hit and roll damage at the same time,a nd if you miss I'll just ignore the damage.

Judging from our rolls, Fink, we are the least perceptive people ever before breakfast. ;)

As a note, maps are

As a note, maps are important. You guys -were- in seperate squares (Xoe, Melusina, and Riese to the south, Galruin, Telian, and Solberg to the north). But for ease of use, we'll assume the former three migrated north, so you're all in the town square just west of the big cathedral.

Ah, see, I was going with the idea that some of the others had come south given some descriptions. But I think getting the party together sooner rather than later can work better in the long run.

I've been looking at the maps, promise!

Also, the one in the RotR player's guide (the free pdf linked in the Resources thread) has a map too, with the names of some places on it. The one linked in the initial post just has the numbers, but Drogar's been using those.

Maybe bold the map link to make it stand out more ;) I tend to do that to links at times to try to ping the subconcious "hey this is important" idea.

If the # legend in't a secret, maybe it would be beneficial to get that posted somewhere?

Given that we're non-threaded

Given that we're non-threaded now, it might be a good idea to specify who 'you' is when writing up the consequences of players' actions, since we can't see which post a reply is attached to.

So just in case my total lack

So just in case my total lack of posting hasn't made it clear, go ahead and write me out of the campaign and let someone else who wants in take the spot. I really should know better than to sign up for these sorts of things, especially when I know I end up not really having time or energy for it :x

Sorry gang, and good luck with the rest of the campaign!

Cerwizzle

Chatted a bit with Cerwis before heading to work, looks like she's building an ifrit fighter with a penchant for big weapons.

Yes, so long as the weapon is not a light weapon. You lose any shield bonus to AC when you do so.
