I would say Mannath knows the basics but would struggle with a proper book.

Greetings! :D

Just so we know and don't make any social feau pas - are you male or female in real life!? :D

Also - all the players so far (and most unusually for any PBF game) are in England, except our GM who is over the water in Ireland. Whence do you hail lady Carolina? :)

Re: Out of Character Chat
I'm a middle age, ugly, bold man and I live in Yorkshire, after relocating from Scotland almost a year ago.
However, I'm not British.

Re: Out of Character Chat
What are the chances though, of all of us being in Blighty or it's nearest neighbours? That's just freaky lol :D

Re: Out of Character Chat
A question to all:

Should we now just post normally rather than via PMs, as there are now 3 PCs in the same room? This would be easier to manage (Group PMs are a pain in the arse on an iPad) and we can all promise not to metagame.

Also, GM, I asked Carolina some questions which I guess she couldn't read as they were in PMs.

Re: Out of Character Chat
Personally I always obey the Golden Rule (as we call it in LARP) - I would have been fine had you all been talking in thread the entire time - and actually all the PMs were narking me somewhat.

So feel free to ditch the PMs and go public. I'll be inside the tower as soon as the GM posts anyway. :)

Re: Out of Character Chat
I just want to see Tarrian's movements first, then I'll get you in Vithrain. :)

Alright then I think we can drop PMs at least for the moment. Everyone can start posting normally.

Re: Out of Character Chat
Does that include me as I'm above them in the tower I'm seeing things the rest might come across as they move up.

Re: Out of Character Chat
Yes. If people want to remain unspoiled they can look away from your character's post, then refer back to it when they actually reach your level.

For reference:

Vithrian and the soldiers are about to enter the Ground Floor.
Maanath, Lady Carolina and (I presume) Tarrian are on the First Floor.
Elstarir is on the Second Floor about to go up to the Roof.

They are now visible to me, so I edited my answer, keeping in mind mentioned situation, with players spread through the tower.

Okay I'll just post to keep things moving and assume Tarrian is with Mannath and Lady Carolina for now.

Re: Out of Character Chat
My copy of Crown of Kings arrived from Amazon today. The book is the official Advanced Fighting Fantasy version of the Sorcery! gamebooks (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sorcery!) It's an interesting looking campaign but I'm not sure if I could run your characters through it, at least just yet since it takes place on another continent!

Any of you guys ever play through the Sorcery! books (The Shamutanti Hills; Khare: Cityport of Traps; The Seven Serpents and The Crown of Kings)? They were probably my favourite of the whole Fighting Fantasy line. Very different and very colourful.

Re: Out of Character Chat
I'm a tad lost as to who the lady carolina is (she's not in the RTJ thread list) and how she comes to be there.


Also, I did deliberately stay out of sight of all within the room...

Re: Out of Character Chat
Lady Carolina is the wife of Baron Bluestone, the ruler of Kallamehr. While you haven't met her IC yet Captain Jafar did mention her. She is also the beautiful woman you glimpsed. She was originally an NPC (which is why she isn't in the RTJ) but is now a PC in her own right.

While you haven't strictly entered the room yet there isn't really any space to hide and get a good view of what is happening on the first floor since Captain Jafar went fully through the trapdoor and into the room above you.

Re: Out of Character Chat
I never read Sorcery and I'm very glad, as the surprise won't be spoiled!
Anyway, I read Fighting Fantasy gamebooks around 25-30 years ago, so memories, although vivid, are a bit blurred...

Re: Out of Character Chat
Uh, Elstarir that isn't how attacks work.

You roll your Attack Strength (your SKILL + weapon skill + 2d6) then roll your opponent's Attack Strength (its SKILL + weapon skill, if any + 2d6). Whoever has the higher total wins that round and you roll for damage, then roll to see if armour negates any damage.
