In reply to MysteriousSamurai (msg # 43):

Fair enough, but we'd also have a duty regarding that town. We'd have to ensure it was overseen properly, laws upheld, justice administered, taxes collected, etc. Not sure how that would impact on our good GM's plans.

What if we all served together in the same Legion of the Lion army? Maybe fought together? That gives us a shared history and some pre-game bonding, without costing points or saddling us with a duty that has to be performed and might get in the way of the GM's game (of course, he might want to weigh in on this...maybe us looking after a town fits in with his plans perfectly!?)

Re: Our Heros
Just a heads up though, my good Lion wont be a veteran nor hold lands/such responsibilities, so don't count on me for any such pies. Feel free to eat them though, not like these things have to include everybody.

Re: Our Heros
I wouldn't recommend picking up gentry, as the war effort will have you travelling the empire (at least at first). Essentially the lion (along with their well paid mantis friends) will be seeing to a possible alliance with the crane against the scorpion. This being the shattered empire era, who knows how that will go

So, we've decided the clans. Each of you get a character concept, background, and mechanics (base +50 exp) and private message me them. Unless there's any glaring problems I'll most likely give you the go ahead. "Sage advantage" is banned, no limits on advantages/disadvantages (But any you take WILL come up) once everyone has checked in, I will post the opening scene



Is that 50xp in addition to the 40xp in Step 3 of character creation... or in lieu of?

Re: Our Heros
Addition is my understanding.

I prefer that interpretation, but wanted to be sure. :-p

Re: Our Heros
Our GM said "Base creation rules, plus 50 EXP" (my emphasis on the plus). So that would be 50 in addition to the 40 the book gives you.

Re: Our Heros
I finished my sheet and got the green light for it with 90 XP (40+50), so i think it is pretty safe to assume that is the case.

Re: Our Heros
Yes, it is in addition to the base 40

Re: Our Heros
What is exactly the situation at the lion thread? Is there any of us other than Daichi around or being addressed? I think once all the other Lions are done with their characters we should try to make some ties around so things are just flow organically in the IC. I can only presume that Daishi has some short of rank/authority here from what i read in the thread, but that is about it, on my part, i designed my lion to be pretty much a nobody rank and file bushi.

In reply to Matsu Yuuko (msg # 53):

I'm Daichi. I haven't yet posted into that thread (time constraints...I'll get to it a little later today). I don't think we Lion are a "delegation" per se, and Daichi's Status is currently 1.0, so he doesn't "outrank" any of you; I'd assume we're all just equal-Status "colleagues". I'll get a response posted in that thread, though, and we can go from there.

Re: Our Heros
All of the lion are being spoken to in the thread, I simply put it from Daichi's point of view because that's what I do. Each scene I tend to pick a character and put at least part of it in their point of view. You guys will get used to my strange ways in time

Re: Our Heros
Hey, fellow Lion! If anyone has their character ready to go and can post in the Lion thread, please do. Our Mantis brethren have a really cool thread on the go...it would be awesome to get our guys doing some similarly cool stuff!

Re: Our Heros
Hurricane IRMA is headed my way; she should hit PUERTO RICO on Wednesday. Last Summer a MUCH smaller tropical storm knocked out power island wide for two weeks... The local power company is forewarning the same or worse is more than likely. I'll post as able, but if I go radio silent... that'll be why. I'm also the highest ranking military IT on the island, so... it's been an exhausting few days of preps and briefs. Fun!

Re: Our Heros
Speaking as a euro for whom earthquakes, hurricans, tsunamis and what like are unheard of and thus i've never actually encountered one irl...

Good friggin luck :S Stay safe and don't be a hero.

Re: Our Heros
because of the hurricanes some people may not be able to post as much, and im not going to dump them behind unless the stretch goes on for quite a while. as such the game may slow for a while, i just wanted to give everyone a warning. It's not being abandoned, and i will check and post every day still (as needed) but that may not be true for everyone, and thats cool

Re: Our Heros
Or at 0500 after my screaming two month old passed back out finally, whatever.  Anyhow, it's not long, but it serves its purpose to move the plot along.  Apologies mate!  Also, should we just assume we're a man down for now and push things forward?

Re: Our Heros
Quick check in, found a wifi hotspot.

Hurricane Maria was fun.

PR is still wholly generator power only island wide. AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint have spotty cell service... I'm Verizon. I have electricity via generator, and running water (non-pottable). Ports are open, but distribution is a nightmare. Lines for everything are insane (people camping overnight in line for gas/groceries). No idea when I'll have commercial power or reliable cell service... but I'll be back as soon as I'm able!
