OOC Thread.

This is the obligatory OOC thread, wherein goes anything not related to the game, and pretty much all of the planning that should have been done in character as well.

What I need now is for each of you to create a thread in the 'Background' sub-forum for your character. Title it as: "Name of Character"- "Name of player"
For the time being, just stick up background and a bare bones character sheet. We can worry about more details once I've stuck in all the background info.
We're using standard gods and alignments out of the handbook (but be aware that I've never paid much attention to either).

For character creation, use the PHB rules, and the site's sexy dice roller- that should be six groups of four dice rolls ignoring the lowest. Find the gubbins for dice rolling here.

Incidentally, Itches informs me that my game forum may be haunted by the unquiet spirits of my previous players. If you hear any mysterious bumps, screams or rattling of chains, just tell them to fuck off.

Huh?

So should my background explain exactly how he ended up in a mercenary troop or can he start the game just arriving at the magic city and be completely freaked out?

That's up to you, as long as you can come up with a sensible reason for him to be entrusted with such a sensitive task by the head of the City Watch.

Well, he needs to hire people to help him defend his home so I guess he'd join a mercenary company for money. I'd like to see the backgrounds for the other characters before I state how he met them though.

GHOSTS! RUN AWAY!

My father was a distinctive and powerful wizard, and it would be natural for them to have asked me to join their group of wee-men for whatever mission is in store? Also, just being a Wizard should be enough

Deal or No Deal?

Oh great Master, would you care to bless us with a Dice Rolling thread for our Dice Rolling needs?

Good news! I found this thread after realizing I needed to look under "T" for The Alcotroll, not "A". I'll get on that character thread ASAP!

EDIT: Does anyone know of a really great character sheet out there on the forum? I rather not recreate the wheel -- pasting my information in a sheet that someone else worked laboriously to create would be better.

I suppose the best option for having the city guard give me the job is knowing one of the other characters.

Go here, http://www.thetangledweb.net/forums/ , make an account, and use the profiler. Once your done, download your character sheet on your computer just in case something happens to the hosting site.

In the end, your character sheet would like something like this (once you activate public permission in youe EDIT tools) http://www.thetangledweb.net/forums/....php?cid=12716

I want to have all the character sheets on the forum where I can see them- PBP games are always having problems with host servers going down and taking character stats with them.
It shouldn't be difficult to copy and paste.

That's what I was asking for, something on this site that I can copy and paste. I'll find one myself right after I hit "submit" on this post.

Edit: I stole a nice one from LeadPal and pasted it in my character thread. Now I just have to make changes. Is there going to be a dice rolling thread? What about starting gold? Core books for feats, equipment, etc., only, or are any other books pre-approved?

I was planning on having most of the dice rolling in here, though char-gen stats could probably go in your character thread.

I told you I stole the sheet! I haven't had time to clear all LeadPal's godly elf of doom stats out of there. I like his format so I didn't erase everything.

So, are we using dice rolled ability scores and hitpoints?

PCs love to use Roids! Luckily, PHB roids aren't that good

I guess I'll make my rolls in my character thread. I'll copy paste a text version of my character then...

Only trying to help

Nic: If you really want to steal the sheet, the latest version, fully cleared with an example, is available here. It's spreading like a virus!

Since all the other games I was a player in just died, I might have time for this after all. When were you planning to start, Alcotroll? I could be freakishly slow to write my background (have had problems writing of late), and I don't want to hold you up. I'd probably play something stupid like a bard anyways.

Is it alright if I use Invisible Castle? I've always had a problem with the dice roller on this site.

Why are you rolling 3d6 and the best 3 instead of 4d6 and the best 3?

I am? I forgot. I suppose that would explain some of it.

Well, they still suck... I mean, if I could pick from those ten it'd be good but the first six and quite unimpressive. Going from decent to bad.

Random is random right? I myself do not have incredible scores, but no real adventurer has 18s or so everywhere in their stats! Look at me, I had to roll my stats three times to finally get something not so bad...

My scores would have been:

11
15
15
8
14
8

These aren't bad enough to reroll, but aren't good enough to be playable.
