Chance:
Am open to having a back connection to anyone, I have travelled with a troupe of what most would consider gypsies. For the last two years have been on my own working my way here doing whatever odd jobs and cons I could work to my advantage. Am a very skilled smuggler.


let me echo that, always open to sharing back story/history with anuy and all characters.

In reply to Tremor Enkau Valevine (msg # 13):

Well I figure we can play a game of Fizzbin over Skype, but it's a Tuesday, so that won't work.

A roll for the game and then you can modify it with a skill roll?

OK, so I did not roll 2 rolls, which I will do in the future, misread above, however, a 3 still falls in line with losing a little bit of coin.

Re: OOC discussions, commentary, and suggestions
I did say some, I described bringing some copper and a few silver.

How about we say 1 ₲?

You're in charge, as indicated by relative skill levels; presumably you could fleece them.

I could, not my intent, currently. Small price to pay for being underestimated and is truthful when I pitch the Dwarf.

Re: OOC discussions, commentary, and suggestions
Tremor just did something in his post that I want to hold up as a great example of how to handle unknowns in play.

He doesn't know if he can find/follow/stop Capshaw from running out into the night. He doesn't even know the DC, so what does he do?

He rolled appropriately and gave me two sets of prose; one if he succeeds, and one if he failed.

I can edit his post to reveal the relevant actions. Cool.

Ah, mistype on my end. I was trying to post quick on my phone before heading back in to work. Basically, same thing, using the winnings to pay for the trip is what amused me. I thought it was clever.

Re: OOC discussions, commentary, and suggestions
Hope to keep you laughing then, am a very charismatic socially skilled character. Can fight but only with simple weapons. S o will be a lover type of character fighting when I have too. Once I level up some will multi class in either a martial one or rogue.

Going to have fun trying this class out. Should be fun in a bar, playing dice for drinks. Rolling a coin or two over my fingers etc making them dance. All the while telling a story and with my free hand emptying their purse or replacing real coins with slugs. Lots of cons and quick talking trouble, this guy will be capable of.

Captain Arath. Such a lovely fellow. laughs

I'd agree, Chance sounds like he's going to be a fun character. ...If he can stay out of chains. He's rather swashbuckling in the moment; fast talk and all.

I'm having fun reading everyone's threads, now that I finally have my character sheet done (except for filling in a few more details to the character Q's).

Re: OOC discussions, commentary, and suggestions
Arath is just like a hooker with a heart of gold.

Except he's not a hooker.

And he doesn't have a heart of gold.

Still, he has a place in my heart.

Of course he does it is where he reached his hand in and pulled it out while it was still beating.
