Use this thread to post messages between players, rather than between characters.

A good response so far. I'll hold this open for the rest of today and admit players to the game starting tomorrow. I have a bit of housekeeping to do on my end.

As I begin to add players, I want to say thank you for your interest.

Since everyone is using a pre-generated character we can get underway quickly.

Please contact me by Private Message if you have any questions about your character, stats or skills. I haven't made the character sheets player editable as yet.

Don't forget to roll 3D6x5 for your Luck and to choose a character portrait.

Welcome aboard!

I'd appreciate it if everyone posts a Description of their character, giving a good idea of their physical appearance, age, how they usually dress, and their voice/speech/accent, etc.

Biographical details should come out in play, if at all.

If you have any questions about how to translate Characteristic scores into verbal descriptions, let me know.

By the way, human characteristics score between 15 and 90 with the average about 50-55.

Here are some words to get you started.

Rugged Handsome Ungainly
Pretty Glamorous Baby-faced
Smart Untidy Dull
Dirty Dazzler Bookish
Youthful Weary Plump
Stout Hairy Slim
Elegant Scruffy Stocky
Pale Sullen Ordinary
Rosy Tanned Wrinkled
Stuffy Mousy Sharp
Brawny Dainty Muscular
Strapping Gawky Frail

A note.

I request that your posts be done in third person.

Please put your character's speech in a colored font to make it easy for others to see what's been said.

Highlight all Out of character questions/statements with an orange font.

When posting the results of a die roll, please you a format similar to this:
Player rolled 50 for Con 65.
That is, we don't need the time/date stamp or "using D100" but having the Skill/Characteristic number stated means I don't need to look it up.

When you respond to a Private Message, please make that a Private Message too.

Thanks.

I'll do my best to remember to colorize if I put anything OOC in the IC thread.  I have colors suppressed in my settings, so I don't see any--I could bold speech, if necessary.

I knew I was forgetting something. Also I made a mistake.

When posting the results of a die roll, please you a format similar to this:
Player rolled 50 for Con 65.
That is, we don't need the time/date stamp or "using D100" but having the Skill/Characteristic number stated means I don't need to look it up.

I put what should have been Private Messages into ordinary OOC, which was not my intent. When you respond to a Private Message, please make that a Private Message too.
