IC posts update:

  • GM awaiting Steven's reaction to deputy's hand-written note (last PC post 8 days ago)
  • Eoghan and Amelia are in the cellar. Actions?
  • GM awaiting Raphael's reaction to Marcus bailing on him; still attend art gala?

I will respond to Eoghanís post Thursday morning.  Iím experimenting with Mongo and C# to create a character advancement-tracking app.

Re: OOC thread 14th Feb 2019 forward
If anyone is interested in faster advancement (much faster than playbypost), I've got a couple of 1-hour slots each week where we could use RPTools to chat and make dice rolls:

Let me know if you're interested.

This looks to be a perfect fit: just chat and built-in dice roller:

If anyone wants to try this out with a mini-adventure, let me know. Mini-adventures will run 45-75 minutes and XP will be awarded immediately at end of the session.

Players, please match your real name (yes, you can give a fake if you're worried about data-theft) with your RPOL username and character name. I'm constructing a database to keep me organized.

Re: OOC thread 14th Feb 2019 forward
Players, I've updated your user-editable character sheets for Eleanor, Eoghan, and Amelia. Waiting for Raphael to post again before doing his. Please check your sheets. A couple of you need to select more starting Magical Disciplines and spells. Please add that info and PM me.

Re: OOC thread 14th Feb 2019 forward
^ The 7-miler turned into a 5.2-miler. The takeaway: don't get cocky and start out at too fast a pace; you'll "run out of gas" mid-run.

Re: OOC thread 14th Feb 2019 forward
Note to pair of players. When calculating your base percentiles for skills, magical disciplines, round down any fractional part to the closest integer:

Counter (Wpr+Pcn+Sta)/3
Enchant (Per+Wpr)/2
Glamour (Wpr+Per+Pcn)/3
Hex (Wpr+Per+Sta)/3
Read (2*Pcn + Wpr)/3
Summon (Wpr+Per+Sta)/3
Ward (Wpr+Sta+Luck)/3

For example, if Hex calcs as 56.6, it's 56% (then +15 if Specialist, etc.)

Re: OOC thread 14th Feb 2019 forward
Important update to rules:

quote:
You can spend a single Apotheosis Point to purchase a Mystery (at those times you qualify to acquire Mysteries) rather than paying for it with XP.

You may purchase spells using Apotheosis Points instead of XP by paying one AP for every 150 XP (or fraction thereof) in the XP cost of the spell.

You may purchase a Skill Level in a Magical Discipline by paying one AP for every 150 XP (or fraction thereof) in the XP cost of the Skill Level increase.


You will find this in section "Utilizing Apotheosis Points" in the PDF here:

Re: OOC thread 14th Feb 2019 forward
Update to earning Apotheosis Points and Tokens:

quote:
Anytime you succeed on a check with three shifts or more, you succeed with style.

This earns you five points of XP, five points of Current Stamina, and five points of Current Willpower, effective immediately.

Make a Luck check. If it also succeeds by one-shift or more, you gain one Apotheosis Point. If the Luck check merely succeeds with a bare success, you gain an apotheosis token. Ten tokens can be converted to one Apotheosis Point.

Re: OOC thread 14th Feb 2019 forward
Imladir: are you by chance the DM/GM of any games on RPOL?

The campaign manager app is coming along nicely. It calculates all your skill percentages based on your ability scores and skill level in the various magical disciplines. It also tracks your SWS, AP, Tokens, etc. I'll be adding XP tracking and journal entries:

I think about it from time to time, but no, among other things because I'm abroad at the moment.

Hey, did Eleanor purchase spell "Draw Upon Inner Strength"? Or do I recall her casting it from a scroll?

Re: OOC thread 14th Feb 2019 forward
Nope, not yet. I hesitated between it and Baleful Blade, but decided on the blade in the end since it could hurt weird stuff (and that was a pretty good idea...)

Well, I need 6.81 miles this afternoon to meet my weekly jogging goal of 25 miles. Easy-peasy.
