Re: Book of Thoughts: OOC Thread
Thank you, I feel welcome as well. I'm in the middle of writing Vanargand's background so I'm slowly progressing :)

I take it there will be more of us as the game slowly builds up?

Re: Book of Thoughts: OOC Thread
Yes, I think I merely need to send out information to the group again. I set this thread up around the time the university started classes. People are either busy, or they were and forgot.

So we'll be getting trickles of players in. I still need to set up the threads as well, so there is little rush.

Re: Book of Thoughts: OOC Thread
Don't worry :)  I still have some writing to do here myself. Should have a couple of things finished. I sent out a reminder email to the rest of my players, so let's see how long this takes. Should it come to it I may do something with the players I have here until everyone else shows up ;)

Re: Book of Thoughts: OOC Thread
yeah, that sounds like a good idea. let's just start without them. once they see it in action, they'll most likely want to jump in.

Re: Book of Thoughts: OOC Thread
Indeed, this game will be starting up very soon.

Does everyone have some sort of access to the demon rules? If not, I will need to get you guys access to the book somehow.

I'll keep you posted, and have another Arch-Kingdom up by night's end.

Re: Book of Thoughts: OOC Thread
Great, I'll need character sheet information. Set up your character sheet as per the rules in DtF Corebook and the Apocalyptic forms as per Player's Handbook. All this information will be placed in the "character Details" at the top of the page.

Set up the page as such:

Str: O
Dex: O
Sta: O
~
Cha: O
Man: O
App: O
~
Per: O
Int: O
Wis: O
-----
etc.
-----
Faith: OOO
xxx
Torment: OOO
xxx
-----
etc

With the Faith system Permanent marks will be indicated by the "O". The "X" indicates a filled permanent mark. Spending or losing faith/torment respectively will add or detract from the x's.

The game will begin quite soon.

Re: Book of Thoughts: OOC Thread
do you need all of our character sheets, or just annie's? if you need everyone's sheets, is it ok to simply scan my sheet & post it as a jpeg? or are we starting over from 0 experience? i don't mind starting over, btw. also, if i were to choose to hail from the seven kingdoms of the arima'in, could i have susan lose consciousness (and someone else else wake up, of course) whenever the aggressiveness of the arch-kingdom flaw asserts itself? is choosing an arch-kingdom optional? i have access to the books, i believe.

Re: Book of Thoughts: OOC Thread
I need everyone's character sheet up. As GM I have access to everyone's character sheet page. So whereas in real life I'd say "Hey, lemme see your character sheet real quick", I'd just look it up ;)

Unlike a real character sheet, though, you won't need to put in stuff you don't have. For instance, if you don't have any dots in survival you won't need to put it on your sheet :) That way you don't have to put -every single- ability on there XD That's just too much! *laugh*

So we're not starting over per se, just putting your sheet into digital form so I can monitor it as necessary :)

EDIT: Annie Green posted this, which I will use as an official template. Thanks for providing it!

As per the Arch Kingdoms they are indeed optional. While you will not gain any pluses to your character, you would also not gain any flaws. I encourage everyone to pick one up, though, as I think it adds flavor.

Susan, as far as your circumstances I will allow that, be it your demon or your other personality.

Your demon will probably look like an ancient Persian goddess, covered in rich, black robes and covered in glistening jewelry. Her face will be mostly covered except her eyes, which are replaced with a golden glow, speckles of golden powders drifting from them. Her entire body is covered with Sanskrit-like words which move continually in cycles around her form. If she should ever manifest wings they would be massive and proud, with golden, glowing eyes overing just over the surface of them when she is still.

Re: Book of Thoughts: OOC Thread
Greetings!

I've started putting things together for a backstory to include Annie Green/Vanargand. It'll be between him and you Susan, well, more accurately, a glimpse into an event in the past. The ancient past. I'm going to give you more details on your demon to role play her proper. I hope it'll be fun!

Also, Susan, gave you give me your guys' accumulated EXP earned thus far? Thanks!

Re: Book of Thoughts: OOC Thread
54 experience

my character sheet is up.

as a side note, you might want to mention that the xp cost of lore is 5x & faith is more expensive than listed in the book by one. also, you may want to detail the revised lore casting rules...

Re: Book of Thoughts: OOC Thread
Ah, indeed. Thank you Susan.

The appropriate threads will be updated. Could you possibly send me the email I sent out to you guys regarding the changes I made to the game? I wish hotmail would keep a copy for me like gmail :/

Annie, go ahead and add 54 exp -after- we work through this little pre-game session of sorts.

I'm sending you both PMs to see what you're getting into and to establish the setting.

Indeed! I saw the picture and I thought it was pretty damn horrifying. Good for a horror based game after all ;)

Just wanted to make sure it's working :)
