The OOC Thread to end all OOC Threads.
Hey.  Just so you don't think I've forgotten about this game.  I'm waiting on my ad in the Players Wanted forum to come up for bumping.  I'd like to bump it again and see if a couple more players show up.  If not, I'm good with two players and we can move on.  So give me a few more days.  Feel free to talk it up here though.

In fact, I have a conversation I'd like to see take place.  As a player, what would you like to see in the game?  For example, you might want to see a really cool magical sword in the game somewhere or perhaps you want the characters to fight a dragon at some point.  I know this might seem a bit odd but I think the game is more likely to be fun if we are up front about what would be exciting for us.  I'm even going to throw my 2 cents in.  I'm a player too, after all.  Also, it doesn't have to be fictional stuff that you want.  It could be that you want something like "Player driven plots" which is one of my wants.

Anywho, have at it.

Re: The OOC Thread to end all OOC Threads.
Hi there, I am cool with just two players. I would like to see some political involvement with the local lords wanting to take a crack at becoming a regnant. I do not see Tannen as being one of the blooded so getting a domain for himself is not likely at all since it would require a tighmaervil weapon and that would attract the attention of the Gorgon...and no one wants that.

I would like to see some military action take place as well and maybe some service with the elf since she is a noble and doing her favours should earn him rewards. Though, elves hate humans and that may not end well.

Re: The OOC Thread to end all OOC Threads.
Hello there, I am glad to be in the game and looking forward in adventuring in the world.

I would surely like to see a few Mage Duels in my time, find magical artifacts and even get lucky to have a exotic familiar when I'm strong enough to have one.

Learning about the land will be one of my main goals and the people as well.  Seeing that I lived more of a shelter life.  Just getting out is an adventure but surely the things that I will come across will open my eyes and to meet others that are magical in nature to help spread and share spells.

Re: The OOC Thread to end all OOC Threads.
Will you be opening up Character Sheets so we can start working on characters?

Re: The OOC Thread to end all OOC Threads.
Not quite yet.  I've got one other player in the application process and there's one more thing to do before statting up characters.  I wouldn't worry about it though.  My experience is that it takes very little time (even for first time players) to stat up a character.

Re: The OOC Thread to end all OOC Threads.
I changed my mind.  It doesn't hurt to stat up your character now.  You can always modify it before we start if you decide to change something.  I've opened up the character sheets.  You should be able to get in there and fiddle around.  Feel free to ask questions if you have them.

Re: The OOC Thread to end all OOC Threads.
Just wondering are we getting Backgrounds, so it can add to skills and Talents?

Re: The OOC Thread to end all OOC Threads.
Yup.  There are only a couple of backgrounds there.  If you want something else, let's talk about it and add it.  I just went with the standard dwarf, elf, halfling but took away the negative Talents for them.  Then I gave the Human background some skill/Talents to make things more even.  We can modify or add whatever we want.

Re: The OOC Thread to end all OOC Threads.
I should be done with my character sheet.

Please have a look at her and let me know if there is anything needed.

Re: The OOC Thread to end all OOC Threads.
Hey gang! I'm glad to be on board. I'll work up a char sheet as soon as I can. I'm looking forward to this game a lot.  I've had this system sitting in my computer for over a year and have never gotten to play it, so this will be a learning experience for me as well.

I'm not seeing a character sheet opened up for me. I'm getting close I think to having something worked up.

Sorry about that.  I've made all the character sheet editable now.  The last player has been added.

Worked on my character sheet a bit.  I had a few ideas to bounce off you, I'll try to get to it tomorrow evening.

Re: The OOC Thread to end all OOC Threads.
I added my character interactions to one each of the other characters' background stories.  I hope that's what you had in mind.  I gotta say, that's a pretty cool idea, I've never done that before. Let me know if I need to change anything.

Re: The OOC Thread to end all OOC Threads.
Will be adding my sheet tonight.

Also, what temporal relation are our stories to each other?

Re: The OOC Thread to end all OOC Threads.
Also, are we doing a third adjustment, opening a conjoined story excerpt?
