This topic is for any discussion about Role playing, but not related to a specific game. I started this thread in an atempt to keep the Game threads clean.

I can't be bothered counting arrows, or gold coins etc. Your wealth is that of a reasonably well off normal merchant at the moment, and you have a healthy supply of amunition. Should you get trapped away from civilisation, I may start counting arrows but otherwise its easy to get more so I won't bother.

You can buy all sorts of mundane items if you find a shop, but magic items are currently too expensive for you.

spells and special abilities are usualy limmited to how many times you can use them per day, but regular weapon attacks and skills like diplomacy, intimidate, jump etc can be used as often as you like. As a rule if the ability is limmited I have written it on your sheet, though I may have forgotten on occasion. I'm not perfect.

This forum tends to move faster than most. WhenI said I would skip people if they didn't post after "too much time", I was thinking of about 24 hours.

That way the game needn't take over your life, unless you want it to.

is there anything you would prefer I did differently Hollow? I am open to sujestions, are you bored by the scenario, the system, or the characters?

The basic mechanic is always the same. I should explain what my slightly cryptic dice roling lines mean. Here is an example:

Quote:
*Commoner makes attack roll: d20+0 = 3 vs Target 20(Deen): miss*


when I say "d20" thats short for "20 sided dice" just as a "d6" is a regular old fashoned 6 sided dice. If I say 2d6 that means I role 2 six sided dice and add them together.

After the d20 it says +0. That is the total bonus or penalty that character has for this action. what I do is look at the character sheet for this character and find his "bonus to hit" for the weapon he is using (a beer tankard in this case)

next is says =3. This is the result of the dice plus the bonus (0 in this case) so you can see that I rolled a 3 on my 20 sided dice.

next it says vs. Target 20. This is the number he needs to get to succeed in this action. In this case it is Deen's Armour value: 20 (found on Deen's character sheet)

Finaly I write the result of the action. This time it was a miss.


Sometimes to sucseed you must meet a target value (as in the above example) and sometimes two characters roll their dice and the highest wins, as below:

Quote:
*Ameron atempts Intimidate Check: d20+3 = 12*
*Angry Man Atempts to resist: d20+1 = 18: Resisted*


virtualy all actions are d20 + bonus. The bonus for things you use alot or you are particularly good at have an entry on your character sheet, other actions will be based on the relevant ability (strength, dex, etc.)

The only time you see any other type of dice is when I roll damage after a succesful attack, in which case the dice depends upon the weapon used, or for spells.

rly sorry about this but in the end rl>rp

because some idiot didnt put paperwork through at the exam board, the last two years of college have not resulted in my achieving the right grades for uni. so even tho i passed all my exams and got the required marks, they werent added together. thus i havent got the damn things. im kinda stressed beyond the eyeballs and i spent all day phoning/emailing everywhere on earth trying to get the happy bastards to give me the qualification, and getting the university to hold off on rejecting the application til they get their act together, and similarily with accomodation and stuff.

so needless to add, i wont be around for a while. paperwork takes forever.

im really really sorry Sad if this gets sorted out tomorrow (lol as if) ill be back then but it could take a week or more.

nobody else will notice im gone cept you guys ;p do what you wish with the char sendal, i really didnt intend to have to leave half way through like this, ill try and come back <3
