Re: Character Creation Discussion
Really depends on how much overlap there is and how applicable each of the player roles is at a given time. Mostly, you'll probably see just perception checks barraged at EVERYTHING since it's an investigative game lol.

Re: Character Creation Discussion
In reply to GM (msg # 45):

I once ran House of Dust and Ash with twelve players. They basically steamrolled the entire game since everyone was a combat-oriented character.

That said, you can always try a divide and conquer approach. I once had a non-DH game with this many. I had everyone in a brief solo scenario until I saw when they were online and how frequently they posted. At this point I grouped similar people together.

Re: Character Creation Discussion
I have posted Sina's sheet in a pm gm.  Can you take a quick look and see if it is OK

Also are you going to open a character sheet section under 'character details'?

Sorry I thought I had everyone's character sheet as editable but apparently I missed 3.

Re: Character Creation Discussion
Okay, lets start again from here shall we?

Also, lets talk about who we want to be and, by extension perhaps, what kind of situations we think would be interesting/challenging (beyond combat obviously) for these characters to find themselves in.

Well, I was rather liking this Krieger. I wouldn't mind the chance to continue using it.

Re: Character Creation Discussion
I am happy enough with 'Sina.  She is not great at combat but that is not a problem.  She would probably do better in a hive situation but wherever she is she would just have to learn as she is being shot at!

Re: Character Creation Discussion
Kind of debating what I want to remake as at this point. Tech priest is an old favorite but I don't know if anyone has social aspects covered.

Re: Character Creation Discussion
I think I may incline myself to an Arbite just have to cook up a concept and reference some of the possible background packages to get an idea going.

Re: Character Creation Discussion
I assume, as well, that I'll be making the character to the same level of XP as Elise was?

Re: Character Creation Discussion
Hehe, wanted to ask first before I got full into it as most of the base generation stuff is done. I feel Sina will be deeply uncomfortable around an Arbitrator... <.<;

Re: Character Creation Discussion
So how many Ranks are we collecting a benefit from? Should I be spending 50 or 100 Thrones, seeing as I didn't know about the benefits before?

PS: GM, I assume we've our usual funds for each rank up or will a little extra be kicked our way? There's a hell of a lot of gear disparity with a full kit SoB lol.


Yeah you guys will have your usual funds and then a pool of money for some items you can borrow. I'm not too worried about gear disparity. If one of you buys or finds more stuff then the others then that person will have more stuff but dead is still dead.

The bad guys will be tough so there should be at least 1 fight but theres plenty of investigating to do too.


GM said that in Post 61, I believe of the Off Topic thread... doesn't quite clarify?

Yeah, I just wasn't sure if I was eligible to collect on two Rank-Up bonus Thrones or just the one that happened recently

Just go ahead and start with your Starting Wealth + two Ranks of increase (so your starting wealth + 10 in your case).

If you have something extra like a home world or talent then add that of course.

Re: Character Creation Discussion
Would it also be possible to do any gear trade outs?

Within reason of course.

Re: Character Creation Discussion
Basically did a swap of the regular shotgun to a combat shotgun, the mesh vest for a flak jacket, and a swap of the club for a side handle baton. Paying the differences in thrones where necessary.
