He he...

My character has an interesting history which GM and me are working out.

You just picked the wrong person to sit next to and the wrong reactions.

All will become clear in time I am sure.
Just remember this is the roman empire.  Not the safest place to be born into.

Just think how your character would react and go with it...

(One player note- that got be one best opening lines between player I ever done).

I need to know how much I am being paid to have the information required to react the way my character would. Also, you really like to press the enter key it seems.

Legionaries received 225 denarii a year.

However I think we get less and half would be in items not money.
So I would say the average solider would get 12 denarii month pay.
The roman's like there structures.

Again this up to GM.

Sorry for the slow down.  My Mom just passed away yesterday.  I had to run to Florida.  This next week will be rather chaotic.

As to pay, auxiliary got paid less than legionnaires.  180 dennarii a year (if I remember right).  And that is gross pay.  Food and uniform were deducted from that.  That brought the net to something like 100/year.

Sorry about your mum.

I lost my father a few years back.
I was very close to him.  We friends as well as father and son.

I ended up sorting everything out as I was only one willing and capable of such things.

So I understand how complicated this can be.

Just player question.  Are you planning on sticking with 3 of us or are you
planning to add to our number of players.  I don't mind which I just like know?

Best of luck, DM. Losing a parent is not the high point in one's life.

We'll be here when you get it all sorted out.

Thanks folks.  We were working on selling her house as she had moved to assisted living.  Now we are spending far more time funeral planning and 1/2 the time cleaning that we intended.  Things will normalize by the 28th when I make it back home.

I am just now popping in to check rpol quickly, because it's past my bedtime. I didn't have time to read the post more than a light skim, but here's my initiative roll:

23:50, Today: Mintho Astegal rolled 20 using 1d20+3.  Init.

How do we handle initiative here?

edit-
And I respectfully request my character to be changed to 'A' for Astegal in future encounters :p

Good question.  Since everyone will post at different times of day, you post your intended actions.  If you think you might be preempted in your actions, you can include an "else" statement. I then combine the actions by intiative.  Include die rolls for attacks in either a private line or in an occ block.  I will change you to an "A".  :)

Do we at least get to know the order of execution?

In this instance, my move depends entirely upon if someone is in the spot I'd like to move to to shoot the german guy that's up front, or if someone rushes ahead into melee range and whatever else, or if someone comes between he and I to provide him soft cover (+4 AC). If I know I am acting first, no problem. If I know I am not, then I need to wait and see what other positions people take.

I understand the apparent convenience of "everyone post and we'll figure it out", but it is often extremely punishing to the players at worst, and at best leads to some ambiguity and actions being interpreted, perhaps inaccurately.

I can appreciate that.  And it makes sense.  Here is what we have so far:

Mintho = 20
Marcellus = 17
Quintus = 16
Malco = 14
Placidus = 10
Sergius = 10
Potitus = 9
Khnum = 7
Kittos = 3

I did not bring the German scores with me but there was a 20 and a 19 in the bunch.  This should at least help with your decision making.  In the case of a tie, the PC acts before the NPC.  Or the PC's who tie act simultaneously.

K, Mintho's turn posted.

Good first turn for the PCs in the campaign!

I assumed they were human since you didn't say otherwise (if I'm blind and missed it, please accept my apologies).

You are correct.  Those four are human.
