Ulic makes people cry with his ax, not with words....I hope, first combat's gonna be interesting.

I imagine he will acquit himself admirably.

Re: OOC Updates
Meanwhile Aesop's physical stats are pretty bad. At least he'll be able to sense how the bad guys are feeling as he's flattened into a pancake.

Re: OOC Updates
Aesop can point out the bad guys to Byron.  Then Byron can kill them.

Re: OOC Updates
Look at Ulic's stats. He turns into a Category 5 hurricane when in combat.

Re: OOC Updates
I'll be awarding XP and starting a new IC thread sometime this weekend. Two of you have some unseconded terms which could convert into Setting Enhancement Points.

Re: OOC Updates
Guys, please welcome player Mahatatain to the game. I've turned off the "Seeking players" flag and have updated the Wanted post. I think four PCs is just about ideal, so we'll go with this for awhile and see how it goes.

Mahatatain has access to the core Reign rules. Like us, he's new to the Reign RPG.

You guys may wanna describe your characters and their strengths/weaknesses so Mahatatain will have a better idea what sort of character s/he wants to create.

Re: OOC Updates
Four players is perfect imo. Welcome Mahatatain!

My character is a freaky-deaky seer. Mostly his strengths are focused around Sense and a bit of Coordination. Physical stats are pretty bad, one die in most of Body, and Charm isn't so great either.

Everyone has sheets up in the "important links" thread if you want to give those a gander to see the exact numbers.

I don't think we have anyone who is strong in knowledge yet?

Re: OOC Updates
Byron is a young noble trained as a cavalryman, so he's very good at mounted combat and has some skill with the longsword as well.  He's also a noble, so he's got the party's societal connections and a lot of money, as well as good social skills.

Unfortunately, he kind be kind of oblivious and needs to grow into his leadership skills.  And he has a lot to learn!  But hopefully that will be his journey during our story.

Re: OOC Updates
We don't have anyone who is strong in knowledge.  We could really use someone with the healing skill.  And we don't really have anyone who knows any "real" spellcasting magic, right?  As opposed to knowing about divining, like Aesop.

Oh, and welcome Mahatatain!  Meant to say that first off but got carried away.  :)

Yep, Aesop has a bit in counter spell but that's about it.

Re: OOC Updates
Mahatatain, when you've got a general character concept (i.e., woodsman who carries a hatchet and longbow, or monk from the monastery in Dil-gal), then let me know and I'll work you into the next Chapter's IC thread.

You've got 85 points for Character creation.



I'll close the chapter after either (a) the guards come in the morning to free Phule or (b) Ulic does something drastic, based upon my latest PM to him.

Off to the gym to torture my body, then I'll check in and see how I can torture entertain the PCs...

Re: OOC Updates
Hi there everyone and thanks for the welcome.  I look forward to roleplaying with you all.

I'm just trying to figure out what kind of character to play.  There are a lot of options and that is very good.

Re: OOC Updates
Take your time deciding. You'll have a better idea after reading through the Reign RPG book. You may also want to take advantage of a mechanic most games don't offer. Players contribute to the flavor, depth, and definition of the game setting by contributing unique terms (and sometimes an accompanying definition, though when they don't the GM will develop one). You can earn extra XP via this mechanic. It's explained here, and tracked here.

Re: OOC Updates
Welcome Mahatatain, glad to have you aboard!

You're in for a treat; great setting and of players.

Ulic's a savage, er, native Khorne-ite, from the Khorne mountain peaks.  He's not terribly knowledgeable of customs and the residual technology the "Flatlanders" possess.  Big, blunt brute ready to rumble.

Hobbies: Reading, writing, rp, video games, drawing. I live out in the boonies so I go on daily hikes with my dog, lots of cool places to explore out here.

Psychotherapy sounds like a really interesting career. I thought I would like to get into criminal profiling or some kind of counseling, but ended up taking a natural resources course to get into wildlife biology. Working retail right now, then back to Uni this September to chase better accreditations. Or maybe I'll change my mind entirely, I'm wild like that.

@Andy: FTF! Ooh, I'm jealous :) I wrote a novel in 2013: Kyrathaba Rising.



@Todd: I took Shaolin-Do karate lessons for several years. Have you watched all the Ip Man movies?



@Brianna: Fantastic. I love hiking/camping. Don't get to do it much due to family responsibilities, etc.



@Mike: I like Java. Most of my experience is in C#, which is very similar to Java. I'm no pro, more of a dabbler: http://www.donationcoder.com/f...ndex.php?board=307.0
