Scheduling and Resources
This thread will be used to keep track of scheduled play dates and provide links to resources.

Schedule

We play from 7-9:30 PM Central Time on Thursdays. This can and will shift for real world events like Holidays, and you can expect periodic two week interruptions roughly once every ten weeks. If you can't make, just drop a line here.

Conversation on the boards or discord is encouraged between sessions.

Next Session

08AUG19 - Your first real fight. Let's hope you live through it.

Just for reference, I purchased the Black and White edition many years ago, and I know it has been updated several times. I'll be interested to see if anyone else has the color edition, and if there are any differences, and if they are significant in any way. I suspect they won't be.

I have the color version, but no means of comparison. I think one or two things may have been simplified based on references to things no longer present - “you may headbutt or hilt strike” for instance, but no indication of the rules for those.

Hi folks!

For reference I am in the Eastern US time zone.

I'll look into picking up a copy of the rules tomorrow and start giving them a look.

Welcome to the party!

Now that we have two of the three minimum, would you guys like to begin chargen stuff?

Alright, we're starting to kick off! With much fanfare, I will be on the discord from 7:30 - 9 PM CMT Thursday to discuss chargen and worldgen. It is not "session 0", just a way to have these conversations without playing the post bouncing game.  We'll also feel out possible scheduling. Will that work for you two?

Also, the CharGen Thread will be coming up!

That works for me, as far as I know now. I still need to pick up the actual book and have a look at it before then.

No worries. the chargen portion is suprisingly simple. Faubus?

Wait, what time zone is CMT?

I have a meeting at 6:00 pm PDT (UTC -7), but I can be available any time in the hour or so before and after that.

The internet tells me it might be UTC +1, if that is so, I can definitely be there around 8:00 pm CMT, if not earlier

Central time, should be an hour ahead of PDT, two ahead of PST.

I think we’re all adults here, so real world scheduling conflicts are completely expected. Eight works just fine, I’ll help R with his character until you get there. If he finishes up before you arrive, I’ll run a “sparring” match with him to familiarize with the combat system. I know you want to be in on the world burn, so we won’t start that until you arrive.

Cool beans. I got RS on discord, so we're all on board. Any chance I can get your character sheet before then? his is pretty much finished except for a mild adjustment or two.

I'll be there. My limited time only allowed me to post my character sheet as notes, not a filled-in PDF yet. And I made one post to negotiation thread here on RPOL-- sorry I wanted to do more. See you guys tonight.

This PBS history of money episode has a surprisingly lot to do with our setting. I have been getting inspired watching it:

In the RP thread here, I just had to throw a reference to Vendetta as "The Art of Kanly" from Frank Herbert's Dune. But last year I learned that Herbert himself got the term from a really good history of Central Asia:
