The Wall (OOC)

Hey everyone, and welcome to the new game! This is the OOC thread or "Out Of Character" thread, where we can leave messages and communicate outside of our characters. If you have questions or messages for me or the other players, feel free to post them here.

The first thing I want to address is posting characters. What you're going to want to do is post your entire sheet as a first post, including your backstory, with the title being your character's full name. Then, as a second post in the same thread, make up a list of your consumables. Basically your willpower, essence pools, health levels, virtues, etc, that will change often. You can edit this smaller second post to reflect your current status. If you want a reference as to a good looking character post, look here. You don't need all those flashy colors for your consumables, but feel free.

For the Compendium, I assume it will be used to discuss our custom made stuff (artifacts, charms and trees, etc.)?

Yes, that's correct. The compendium will comprise of custom made charms/charm trees, spells, and artifacts. I'll probably also include a thread in there reserved for their discussion so we have a place to figure out custom stuff.

Two Questions:

Do we want to address each other all by our tags, or by our first names? (I personally prefer actual names to tags)

Do we know if Red is joining us yet?

Firstly, with the exception of Red, we all know each other here. You can go ahead and use real names. I wouldn't want to have to try and spell your name all the time anyway... fhgwdads... what the hell does that mean anyway? I'm used to tags from previous experiences because I started out not knowing my players in RL in my other games. Even though I know Red's real name (i've known him for a long time), I still call him Red by habit. So you can go ahead and use whatever is comfortable for you.

Secondly, if you didn't garnish the fact from what I just said, yes, Red should be joining us. There are also two others, my brother, and another player from my other campaign, who expressed an interest in joining. That would make 6 players all together if that happened, which would make it rather large. You guys have a say in whether or not you want the other two to join in. It's your game too.

While other people can be cool sometimes, 6 is a little too much for me. The more people, the longer the game can take to progress. I'd prefer 4. 5 at the very, very most. 4 people is best to me.

The same thing crossed my mind. 6 is alot of people. It'll be harder for me to handle, and slower moving. I think 4 is a good number.

I have found something which may be in context with my character story.

I happen to agree with the 4 people is best. Especially in a PbP, more people tend to drag the game down as everyone waits for everyone to get their fair share to speak or act.

Guess this is my introduction by the way.

That does sound right up your alley. I don't know if mortals ever typically fill the shoes of a seer and an excorsist in one, but it's certainly doable.

The whole immaculate order thing can add another twist too, and the exorcist deal was kind of what I was going for in the first place.

I guess I meant to say that my character is being trained more as a monk/exorcist than a seer, but the seer part sort of fits into it. Not hardcore thaumaturgist seer, but somewhat like that with less power/potential, if you understand my rambling.

I also kind of meant all of that to work its way together near/at/after the time of exaltation.

Oh, and a hearty welcome to you, Red! You can call me Dave (my first name) or fhgwdads, whichever you prefer.

Ok, I think I see what you mean Dave. Excorsists would be more sensitive to the metaphysical world, just like a Seer would be.

Edit: Oh and Dave. I see you made that new thread for the Ofuda tree you want to make. I was thinking we could put all the discussion in that one thread I made and leave new threads for completed submissions.

dying would be going for more than a month without a post. These games can come to a screetching halt depending on the players and their free time. A few days isn't much. Although, these games should move fast at least when they first start. On the other hand, it is finals week man. Give them a break. If things don't start moving after finals week, we'll do something about it.

Hey Relentless.

Basically this game is going to be about a reincarnated first age solar circle, starting off as children. The whole theme is character growth.

Say Erendiox, could you post the character creation rules in the Character thread? I know you had some special stuff cause we're kids and all, but I can't remember what that was for the life of me.

//Edit: Also, where will this be taking place? I don't want to be some kid from Nexus only to have the game take place over in Abalone.

Here are the rules I've come up with for making child characters. They're pretty solid, but i'm open to suggestions.

First age tier (10-12):
- 4/3/2 Attributes (no attribute above 3)
- 15 Ability points (no ability above 3)
- one favored ability
- one background point
- 3 virtue points (+1 to compassion which does not count toward max willpower)
- 5 bonus points

At the next age tier (14-16):
- add one point to each attribute section (resulting 5/4/3)
- add 5 ability points (no ability above 4)
- add one favored ability
- add one virtue point, adujusting willpower accordingly (remove +1 compassion)
- 5 bonus points (10 total)

At the final age tier (18+)
- add one point to primary attribute section (resulting 6/4/3, standard heroic mortal)
- add 5 ability points
- add one favored ability
- add one virtue point, adusting willpower accordingly
- 5 bonus points (15 total)

The characters exaltation, which can happen in any age tier, will result in:
- add one point to each attribute section (resulting in 7/5/4 during adulthood, by comparison standard starting solars get 8/6/4)
- add caste abilities and two favored abilities (resulting in 5 final favored abilities in adulthood)
- Raise essence to two and calculate essence pool
- Pick out 3 charms to know immediately

I think a deadline should be set upon which everyone playing this game should have their complete characters posted, full backstory and all.
