[Almagra] AD&D2E PbP Game: Kingdom of Vrocia [OOC]

Postby Knightfall » Fri Jan 08, 2016 1:16 am

Here is the OOC thread for the new AD&D 2E game I'll be running here on The Piazza starting this weekend (likely Saturday or Sunday). The "In Character" thread hasn't been created yet. I'll get to it in a few days. If, in the meantime, you guys have questions, feel free to ask them here.

Ok, I've posted on the IC thread. I see that one other person has also done so.

I'd like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Chris, and I am a librarian by profession. For a hobby, I maintain a blog, which can be found here: https://overthetopepicroleplaying.wordpress.com/

I haven't posted anything recently, although that will soon be remedied. But the posts that ARE there will tell you a lot about me, and about my gaming style, and my background. There is even a CV, if you want to read a bunch of boring stuff about my various skill sets.

My account name here on Piazza is the same as my account name on EN World: Tellerian Hawke. (That's the name of my first, favorite, and most powerful D&D character.) So if you find yourself on either forum, and you're wanting to ask me something, I'm pretty easy to find.

In this game, I'm playing a Half-Ogre fighter (Knight) who looks more like a huge human than an Ogre; unlike most Half-Ogres, Tim's Human side won out in terms of physical appearance, hence the CHA score (even with -1 pentalty) of 13. Tim is an honorable, stand-up kind of guy, but he has a few annoying quirks, and can be a bit arrogant at times. But he has a good heart, when it comes down to it. If you'd like to read his entire background, feel free to do so; it's on the Facebook page under the FILES section.

When it comes to gameplay, I want to assure you about a few things:

1) I am a team player; I won't try to dominate the game, or ruin anyone's fun.

2) I stay true to character; for example, Tim's main weapon is an engraved Greatsword of good quality. It costs 63 gold pieces. But Tim wouldn't take ten thousand gold for it, because it bears his family name, and has sentimental value to him. Anyone who would try and take it from him had best be prepared to lay down their life in the attempt.

3) I've got your back; Tim is a knight, and he acts the part. He never leaves a man behind. SCARLET CROSS LEADS THE WAY! HOO AH! :)

So, that's my two cents, and I'd like to hear from everyone else. Who are ya? Whatcha up to? What's your gaming style?

Physio was a little tougher on me today than I thought it was going to be. I'm very tired. Going to bed early. Will post something tomorrow.

Physio tomorrow. I'll try to get another post up either tomorrow night or sometime on Saturday.

I'm learning that I can't keep staying up late to write my replies. It's to hard on my sleep cycle.

I will try to post at least one reply tonight. Tomorrow is more likely, however. I had to sleep for two hours this afternoon.

I think I might be getting sick. ;( :facepalm:

Tellerian Hawke,

I'll try to get up a reply for you by Friday. Really busy over the next few days. (Writing class, therapy group, and physio.)

Sigh. :facepalm:

Sorry guys, today was a tough day. And Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday will all likely be busy. I might be able to get a post up by Friday, but I won't make any promises.

Take yer time, that's the cool thing about PbP, it doesn't need to be fast-paced. You can write a post, go to the movies with your family or friends, go on a weekend camping trip, attend a friend's birthday bash, and then post again the following weekend while you're sitting on the couch watching the History channel :) LOL :)

I'm just posting this message to see if The Piazza has built-in dice commands...

[dice]1d20+1[/dice]

[roll]1d20+1[/roll]

Hmmm... nope. Rats. LOL :)

Tellerian Hawke,

I will get another post by the end of the week, but I want to give the other guys a chance to post first. :)

Initiative rolls too, please, including weapon speed.

FYI, I prefer Initiative for each individual PC. The beetles will go on the same initiative score.

I don't usually have player's roll each round. It slows down play too much.

Dang, I always forget how long it takes to make combat-ready NPCs for AD&D 2E. :|

Finishing up Fore took me all afternoon. Of course, it would have gone faster if I hadn't tried to check for Wild Talents in the core rules program. :P
