OOC Thread...

Hello... basically I liked a lot of the ideas of the PbtA game FARFLUNG (but not all of them), but I realized I didn't want interplanetary adventures, I wanted end-of-time adventures, so I changed the names of some playbooks, changed others in other ways (sometimes by adding elements of VENTURE, a game by Riley Rethal), and for all of them, I went with a more basic way for rolling to see what happens.

So now that's some stuff you know!

And, in case anyone wonders, the Stuff list is (barely) adapted from the PbtA game Uncharted Worlds, which I feel has an excellent Stuff system.

So let's see, Playbooks, Setting, Stats, Doing Things (which I feel sufficiently includes Combat), Leveling Up, Health, Stuff...

Anything I've forgotten...?

I don't have too much PbtA experience (mainly dungeon world) but is there a kind of 'bonds' mechanic?

EDIT: I also don't really see a thread about leveling or how to get XP or something.

Leveling/XP doesn't have its own thread, it's under the STATS thread, bottom of the second post.

I don't do Bonds mechanics in my games because it's so common for players to disappear (sometimes replaced by new players) on RPol that in my opinion Bonds-- again, on RPol, at least-- just lead to frustration more than anything.

Thank you for the welcome. I am Anchorite Tearful, one of the several Anchorites of the church. Normally, I do not leave the confines of the holy space, but on rare occasions I am sent to do pilgrimage.

Welcome miss Tearful.

And im from the north indeed but so far south im more from the west unless you speak french ;-)

Do we want to establisch some background links? Though 2 of us are just uncontrolled engines of destruction it seem.

I could have sat on you Aesop at some time you where dangerous to the peoples food supplies Duke usually 'protects'

Not sure where a priest fits into The Dukes life though. On the other hand he is a Chineese volunteer for the expedition for accidentialy sitting on the wrong people a little to much. Foers doesnt complain about sitting on people while he does about hitting people of the Ziggurat.

Re: OOC Thread
Well, the big thing is that Aesop just wants to have friends. Any one of you could take the place mouse in my backstory (which is basically the same story as the lion and the mouse in Aesopís fables). Having Duke not being afraid of him would open up the possibility of friendship as well. Of course, Duke might not see it as friendship but, for now at least, Aesop would. Heís inexperienced, the poor little kitten of doom.

Also, just in case Chinese Volunteer is a Dutch idiom, it means a volunteer that is not a volunteer but the person ordered to do things when nobody voluntarily would do it.

The Duke has no friends. Everyone ignores him cause he has nothing sensible to say. Anyone willing to listen to him might be considered friendly but it takes little to let him fly of the handle to destroy you. Unless Foers his invisible friend thinks you are part of the Ziggurat and stops him from killing you.

Re: OOC Thread

Welcome to Grigori, the historian!

It makes me happy, because I wanted another human, and Historian was one of the three I was specifically hoping for...

Okay, as soon as everyone has picked portraits and stats, I'll start an in-game thread... (I realize this might not happen on a Sunday, but still, I'm really looking forward to it...)

Anyone who shows up after this can easily be added in anyway, but I thought it would be best to have at least 4 to start...


OH, and this reminds me... we still haven't settled if Aesop the Monster Black Lion will have an NPC as a friend, or if one of y'all's PCs will be his friend...?

Y'all work that out, please, before we start.

I don't mind playing an NPC, but let's decide if we're going that way (PC friend for Aesop or NPC) or not first, eh? (And if PC, then which?)

I'd be willing to be a friend, but it would've had to either happen -in the church- (unlikely, I suspect, but possible) or during one of the Anchorite's pilgrimages (which I'd be just fine with.)

Re: OOC Thread
Welcome Grigori! Do you perhaps hail from the West Marches in the realm of Rollplay?

As to my friend... while I know it doesnít help, it doesnít matter to me personally what gets chosen. I think the GM expected it more to be a PC, so if any of you want to have already befriended Aesop the giant black lion, then thatís surely an option. The Duke is formidable in his own right, so that doesnít really work with the fable reference. I think the historian or the psychic would be a better fit.

Ah, just as I was posting this Anchorite posted. Yes, on pilgrimage can work. Are you familiar with Aesopís fable of the lion and the mouse? Would you be open to mimic this a bit? I think psychic power can be a good hidden strength with which to impress Aesop the lion.

More like the second thing. I did send you a PM last night... before you posted this... about being an Historian... but the content of that PM was about all I had in mind.

I have also talked to our Psi-mage over PM about psychic stuff...

I plan to send a clarifying PM to our Mad and our Monster later today as well...

But yeah you might be surprised how useful "oh I read something about this once" could come in handy...

Re: OOC Thread

Realized I left a possible use of Hidey off the Stat Explanation thread and have now updated-- but will reproduce here:


Hidey: Go Small! This is what you use when you are trying to hide or otherwise not get noticed nor draw attention EDIT: or make someone think you're small and unimportant and not worth their time to bother nor destroy.


(If you haven't distributed your Stat scores yet, please do. Your character sheets should all be unlocked...)


Okay so my understanding is that Anchorite Tearful will be Aesop's friend? If so, that's perfectly fine... Just want to make sure we're all on the same page about that...

...I'll be starting soon, and if any new people show up, it'll be pretty easy for me to add them...

Personally I think four is a really excellent number of pc for pbta. That said, there is often attrition in pbp, so having a few backups in case of unforseen dropout isnt a bad idea.

I'd be open for another 1-2 players, but don't think they're critically important

Sorry! Sorry-sorry.

The Anchorite regalia, the violet robes, are class 2 clothing: Uniform, impressive, and visor.

The Anchorite weapon is simply a long knife (class 0)

And of course, Anchorite Tearful has been in the outside before. A wilderness kit is appropriate (class 1)

Okay... what does the visor detect, exactly?
--Magnetic fields?
--Energy fluctuations?
--Gravitic anomalies?
--Heat? Ultraviolet?
--Mass?

(You might think "detect mass" is dumb, but it's great for --invisible things
--seeing through holograms/illusions
--detecting that an object is heavier/lighter than it looks (maybe it's gold, but painted-over! or maybe it looks like steel, but is really paper-mache!
--weak spots in a wall)

--light (in extremely low-light situations, in other words night-vision goggles)?
--motion-detection?
--hostile targets?
--other?

--The Duke: chose Stuff and posted it in character sheet as I requested

--The Lady: has not yet chosen stuff but I have to admit she just got here compared to everyone else.

Can I choose nothing right now ... but use my Luck manipulation abilities during the story, so that the PC group can 'coincidentally' find stuff they need along the way (with a successful use of a Move?  obviously, a partial success will come with limitations or consequences to be dealt with)?


Otherwise:  can I add my picks to Grigori's vehicle, increasing it from whatever Class it is now, to a Class 2 with some lucky and unexpected features?  What luck!

I don't see why not...



If that's the way you want to play it, then it sounds like we're all ready to go/move on...? Yes...?

If so, post anything you want to post, and then the robot will show you out...




If any players disappear for too long, their PC will disappear from the game. If they return, their PC will return to the game, doubtless with some amazing story about where they went!

But I don't think it's been quite long enough yet for me to activate that happening...

Apparently, tíis the season to be jolly.
Personally, Iím too overworked during this season for anything but tired.  :-p
Truth is, Iím very lucky to be surrounded by loved ones; so whinging aside ....

I hope that the season brings great joy to you all, my friends.

However, the season isnít always Ďmerry and brightí for everyone.
If this is a season of sorrow, loss or great stress for you ... if you are struggling ... please do find help.   At least talk with someone you trust about your pain.  Hell, send me a Private, and we can chat.

Personally, I encourage everyone to remain aware of othersí feeling during this time; and be conscious of how our words and actions affect others.
I really do hope that everyone finds some happiness this season ... and, if possible, bring some love and light into the lives of those around them.

Grigori: has a quad walker, seats 3
JJ: skimmer, fits a driver plus up to 4 passengers

Aesop is a huge lion and needs no vehicle as such, so there will be enough room for The Lady, The Duke, and Anchorite Tearful to ride with no problem-- they could all three ride with JJ, if they wanted.

I dig you.

And JJ and Grigori checked in just 2 or 3 days ago (respectively).

I hope Anchorite Tearful (last seen 3 days before Christmas) comes back soon, but I always thought 6 people would be good to have in case we lost one. With 5, I think we can carry on just fine... (although, again, I hope she comes back...)

It's a little close to bedtime for me, so I'll check on the in-game thread tomorrow (or that is my plan, anyway)...

Hmm, curious what you mean here. It does seem we have some characters who are a bit detached from humanity and seem to mostly observe but I don't know what you mean by ignore others in our troupe. So far everybody who has acted on their environment has done so as a direct reaction to the actions of another party memeber.

From a meta standpoint I'd be interested to hearing ideas to improve group cohesion.

The Lady wants worship but none give it and she has taken no steps to make anyone do so. She is just present and thats it.

The Kitty was ooc absent but doesn't care about anything when its about It doesn't want to be petted nor wants to play cat and mouse.

JJ just wants to watch and observe.

The Duke is the bull in a china store without anyone guiding or at least trying to will knock expensive things over.

Grigory is interacting with the woman but fully ignored the oaf that broke the house.

Dunno it feels like each of us is playing their own game regardless of what the others are doing and the biggest group doesn't even feel like participating at all.

True mostly, I'd love for a bit more interaction from the observer group, but Grigori didn't exactly ignore the Duke in the same way the Duke didn't ignore Grigori. The Duke heard Grigori say something and acted on it, causing a situation that Grigori acted on, including,

"Grigori glares at the Duke after his careless smashing"

I will say I'm 100% I'm ready to hop on board with the Lady, just looking for some in character things to earn or *demonstrate* the utility of worship. I'm guessing/hoping that JJ and Aesop are more the sort to step in when their motivations are activated a bit more directly (whatever those may be).

For those taking action, should you call upon your Goddess for aid, then she may bless you with some of her Attention.

For example, should Aesop (actually) show enough faith in The Lady, and fall upon her for luck, that Ď9í result might actually modify to a Ď10í.

The way that you bolded ďCall upon your goddessĒ made me think it was a specific move, but I cannot find it anywhere. Also, in his mind Aesop ir protecting you, so he wouldnít think of calling on you for aid as heís aiding you. Anyway, itís a bit of a moot point anyway, since he tried to intimidate with the intention of scaring them away and avoid a fight, but a fight still happened :P

Also, the way the playbook for the monster is written he would have no need to worship anything, but is mainly looking for friendship.

Causes property damage, damages machinery and vehicles.


That's not exactly the same as "busting new holes through solid stone..."

But where are we?


1. I realize it can sometimes be hard to get back into a game when it's lost momentum.

2. I realize it is hard to concentrate on a game with a virulent global pandemic going on (that was most of the problem that caused #1).


SO. Do each of y'all:

A. Want to continue?

B. Want out? (This option also covers "I WOULD like to continue, actually, but I am kind of overly stressed by the life-changing effects of a virulent global pandemic going on to actually commit to doing so.")

C. Want out of this game, but want to try playing something else?


Sound off and let me know which. If it is B, there will be no hard feelings toward you on my part.

Well i think all of the characters are to dysfunctional to form a coherent group and thats the thing with most books.

As for the worship. I think you just need to put a little work in making it happen. Like you where doing with Grig. You havent had a single talk with The Duke so why would he worship you even though he is gullible enough to be coaxed into doing it.

All right then, we'll continue with two. I'll figure out some way to write the others out of the story... Maybe the plot will somehow depend on splitting the team up...

...Mm, I think Grigori and JJ will just go look for Aesop.

I'll play them as (rather passive) NPCs, for now...

...But The Lady, tell me if you wish to make a new PC...



Ooooops.

I remembered this post as: "I will wait and see if The Lady wants to make a new PC or not, and then, based on that, I'll post."

But re-reading it, I see now that it reads a bit more like: "I will post soon, unless The Lady wishes to make a new PC."

Soooo... I guess silence in this case means it's time to move forward with The Duke and The Lady...

"This land cherishes the lady luck. A long forgotten thing that wants to connect with the land for it like her is of a time long past."
ooc: The Lady has been prophetised. On a roll made she can ask me if this is what the Duke talked about. If yes, roll another dice and choose which two you want to use.  If no it can be used later.

Using it in this place has the biggest chance of a yes.

And a success again. I never gain xp with rolls like this.

Do you mean I can make some kind of roll ... or should?

The Duke is correct.

It's a way of The Duke aiding a future roll.

Example:
1. The Lady tries crossing a short bridge slippery with mud, and fails her roll.
2. Asks The Duke: "Is this that thing you were predicting?"
3. If The Duke says yes, you get to attempt to improve the roll somewhat.

It's part of his special playbook

Pfffffffff. Again, my fault. I calculated damage like I was in one of my (many) other games.

The Duke is Somewhat Wounded, the first level of being wounded.


-Somewhat Wounded (you could really use a number of stitches, or you bruised a rib, or wrenched something a bit, or are right on the edge of being shaky and/or lightheaded and/or nauseated... if it were any worse it would impair your performance, but you're okay to function for this moment)


As for healing, if you don't have any medkits or anything, you'll have to find some, or someone who has some...

My understanding was that Foers is/was a real teddy bear programmed by The Ziggurat who would zap The Duke if he was tempted to harm an ally.

The Duke may have some additional conceptions about Foers...

Re: OOC Thread
Foers is a digital figment projected into the real world by a sophisticated Friend Or Enemy Recognition System that designates anyone not from the ziggurat as free reign to be killed and anyone form there as friend and an attempt to attack them leads to an elextric jolt straight into the brain.

Inspired by that thing on his shoulder as being the 'real' Foers

Okay...

Now, you didn't choose a vehicle, but the Ziggurat can loan you one...

This is what I'm thinking:

Your research (or a spell?) suggests to you that there's something very valuable to your studies at The Cloister, so you suddenly tell The Ziggurat that you want to catch up with the expedition. The Ziggurat tells you that there's a tracker in the walker that The Lady and The Duke are using, so The Ziggurat sends you in a vehicle of your own to catch up to them. (The vehicle can be pre-programmed to return on its own when it drops you off.)

What do you think? Any objections, anyone...?

Well, there's the problem of the water growing less, recently, than it used to be, but as far as it not acting like water, yeah, it's totally acting like water normally should.

So, I presume The Duke continues on through the next doorway...? Or does he stop and do anything else first...?

Re: OOC Thread
msg#31:
There is a new doorway on the opposite wall from the entrance, with about three steps upward  to it.
The Lady:
Through yonder door.

Perhaps it is the entrance to said hallway of which Juniper speaks.
So The Lady casually glides over towards it, testing to see if it will open for her.
quote:
The doorway in question does in fact lead to a long hallway, about 40 yards or so. Its ceiling, too, lights up when one enters it.

At the far end is another doorway, open.

The ... door starts closing at the far end right away-- and it's two feet thick, of a very, very sturdy metal

So, The Lady is thinking that as this (fountain room) door is closed, the other opens.  And when this door is opened, the car one closes.

She wants The Duke to enter the hallway between the two doors; she will remain in the fountain room and close these doors, and she wants The Duke to observe whether (with the fountain room doors closed) the yonder doors at the other end of the hall subsequently open.

No. A little experimentation demonstrates that when one starts actually moving down the hallway, the far door starts closing.

It has nothing to do with the first door being open nor closed.

Just to save time, I will simply say that the results are unsatisfying.

It really does seem like the only way through the door before it closes is to run for it, at a faster-than-a-tree-person speed, which fortunately both of you can manage (without a roll).

The Duke's Prophecy move:

quote:
Prophecy:
If only they would listen to you! It would all make sense, given time.

Declare another character to share your secrets with, and roll Scary/Weird.

7+: Prophecy
After that player makes a roll, they may ask you (The Duke's player, not The Duke) if they can use that thing you said now. If you say yes, that player rolls one die and may substitute the result for a die roll in their last roll. ("Oh, this is what you were talking about!")

If you say no, the prophecy can always be used later instead.

If they choose NOT to substitute the new die result for one of their last die results, the prophecy potential is used up anyway.

No player can have more than 1 prophecy at a time waiting to be used.



The Duke has already given his permission to use the move.

You roll one die, and hope that it is good enough to substitute for the worst die of your roll in an effective way.


HAVING SAID THAT...

The Duke, when did you previously lay a prophecy on The Lady? I can't find...

Re: OOC Thread
The Duke ... msg 219 'Leaving the Zigg':
The Duke grumbles a sound of disgruntled approval. Most likely just because the Duke had no better idea on his own. When he steps onto the grass he starts to speak his tone of voice not entirely his own.

"This land cherishes the lady luck. A long forgotten thing that wants to connect with the land for it like her is of a time long past."

And then as if he had not said a word points at one of the jellyflies.

"Think we can eat those?"

ooc: The Lady has been prophetised. On a roll made she can ask me if this is what the Duke talked about. If yes, roll another dice and choose which two you want to use.  If no it can be used later.

Using it in this place has the biggest chance of a yes.

And a success again. I never gain xp with rolls like this.

Ohhhhh yeah, there it is, thanks...

1. It's not that I refused to believe-- I just couldn't find it.

2. Yeah, The Lady, you've got a point-- a Mad Prophecy is best used when you were 1 point away from not-failing (like a 6)... And when one of the dice was great and one bad. Which... is definitely not what happened with your roll...

So you'll need a peaceful place to rest for some hours, and at least a little food and drink (did you leave the supplies on your vehicles? If so, you'll need to scavenge for foodstuffs/water)...

Re: OOC Thread


I hope to be back soon, but basically this ultra-winter weather (makes the brain want to hibernate) and power outages (disrupts work schedule, also family needs extra-entertaining) has disrupted my schedule... I'll do my best, but I can't even tell whether or not this weekend I will have 5 spare hours per day to play like I usually do lately...

Sorry for the delay, but this is the first day in days where I've woken up feeling fine.

Sounds weak in this era of a global pandemic which I don't have, but feeling bad is feeling bad and feeling fine is feeling fine, so heck with it, I felt bad and now I don't.

Re: OOC Thread
Okay: new move available:

AID

--When you attempt to help another character, say how, and roll ONE d6. The character you're attempting to help can use this roll in lieu of one of their own roll's dice. (If more than one player helps them, they can only keep the best 1 die from amongst all dice rolled). By using Aid, you will be exposed to any risks, consequences, or costs of their move, even if they didnít use your die.

--If you roll a 1, the GM will probably put you at risk, make trouble for you, or make things worse in general, even if the GM can't think of any way for you to share the same problems as the character you tried to help.



Anyone wanna try to help?

You can make things worse for YOU, but you can't make things worse for The Lady... and you might help...

Everyone: Also, I'm super new to this and hope you guys can do me a few favors:

*Can I get a 1-2 paragraph max synopsis of what's going on in the game so far? I tried to read the threads but can only follow so much.

*Can anyone tell me if we're on Earth, some moon (or THE moon), or some place else?

*Anything you guys think I should know about or prepare?

GM:

*Does Alyn start in the Ziggurat?

*What types of gear and such does he have?

*Do you need anything else from me?

  - Ajaktu has suffered many indignities ill suited for his nature and station. Whilst formulating an escape plan from the jaguar-like locals, The Duke and The Lady precipitously arrived on a quest of their own. Recognize the worth and capabilities of Ajakstu, they negotiated his freedom. Since then, they have been wandering a subterranean complex trying to figure out why some water is not flowing to where it should be. This is delaying Ajakstu's return to a life of adventure and luxury, so he chafes, but endures.

*Can anyone tell me if we're on Earth, some moon (or THE moon), or some place else?

  - Sure seems like Earth to me.

*Anything you guys think I should know about or prepare?

  - Do not anger The Duke. Point him at your enemies, imagined or not, and stand back. You may admire Ajakstu's magnificent hat, but may not touch.

Re: OOC Thread
*brushes crumbs of his chest*

Welcome new blood. The wise people of the Ziggurat have formed a team to go on a quest to find another place of which the Duke has long since forgotten the name. We started with many but most have been lost to the weird lands outside. Luckily the Lady is still with us and together with her the Duke (his task is protecting the food preferably inside his stomach) are now on a quest for a living tree that wants us to return water to the overworld so it can tell us where to look next for our destination.

Inside we ran into 3 warring tribes that are wasting the water. the Duke enforced a peace by slaughtering many of them in an atrocious way and we found a magnificent hat with a man under it that according to Foers is a friend so the Duke hasn't smashed him to a pulp (yet) The Lady just became goddess of one of the 3 tribes and the Duke set off to deal with the other tribes. By now however the Duke only remembers he wants all the water back in the main basin and really has no clue why he is here anymore oh and he is piss drunk. ;-)

Re: OOC Thread
Thanks for the summaries guys that at least gives me a starting point.

Will see what the gm says about how I should initially set my character up gear wise and logistically.

I am curious though but does anyone know how weapons and guns and other things actually work as far as what the tags really do in a mechanical sense? I do see the things in the stuff thread. But I'm just wondering why would you take one Tag over another. Or is it more for the sake of being descriptive?

And for clothing...does the impressive tag actually do anything?

5 Do you need anything else from me?


1. This is Earth, millions and millions of years (maybe a few billion? no one remembers for sure) in the future.

The moon is still there, which provides most of the (rather weak) light (someone set up big lamps/spotlights up there or something). The sun burned out (was mined and used up? something else? no one remembers) long ago. (No one really understands what warms the planet, either. Everyone says "volcanic heat" but that wouldn't actually seem to be enough. It's yet another mystery.)

2. Nah

3. No, I'll have him catch up with the guys soon, I think

4. You may choose three classes' worth of STUFF, as explained in the STUFF thread. A simple, functional item like a basic jumpsuit is Class 0, which is to say free. Kits are Class 1.

Rations of food and water will be provided for free by The Ziggurat.

5. Not yet. I'm still working with our other prospective new player...

Re: OOC Thread
Hmmm... interesting.

Are flying vehicles available now, or are those not available yet?

Also can I model a quad walker to be like a floating hover platform? The quad Walker I feel of the three vehicle types looks like it would be the best across all types of terrain and have the most ability. And I feel like a hover platform maybe one that can't go higher than 10 ft off the ground or something so it's not like truly fully flying lol. It's more like an anti-gravity platform. And I was thinking of taking the modifier where you can control it remotely and say that the ziggurat built it for my character so he can actually link up to it with his psychic powers and like call that thing over to us or direct it with his mind.

Thoughts?

Hm. Yes, but I will treat that modification as being worth one rank of Stuff, leaving you with two more ranks to spend...

...Because the vehicles do have ranks of modifications available, after all.

For example:

Upgrades: Pick 1 upgrade when designing a Class 1 Land Vehicles, pick 2 for Class 2, etc.

Boosters: Greatly increases overland speed. Allows short jumps.
Controlled: Can be remotely activated and given directions.

You can review the whole list in the STUFF thread.

I just mentioned these two as things you might want...

Re: OOC Thread
Ok some items I'm thinking of taking. I'd like everyone's opinions in case I'm doing this wrong or not thinking of something:

Vehicle: Psi-Walker (Class 3, Quadwalker Base, Controlled[Can be used with his long-range psychic link], Boosters, Workspace [Wilderness Kit Built In])

Weapon: Combat Knife (Class 0, Melee, Severing)

Weapon: Stun Baton (Class 0, Melee, Shock)

Armor: Travelling Get-Up (Class 0 Simple)

Free Rations From Ziggurat


So I am envisioning his Psi Walker to have as good of all-terrain capability as humanely possible between quadwalker and wilderness kit, act as a bit of a camper when he wants to sleep with wilderness kit, and be able to be controlled via his telepathy as he can actually affect machines and this one is easier by design as the ziggurat made it for him.

Thoughts?

Edit: if we already have a wilderness kit represented in the party then I actually am considering either getting some sort of armor or protective gear or more likely adding a sensory kit of some kind onto my psi-walker. I may even just go with the sensory kit anyways but I'd like to hear people's thoughts.

You can't get all that stuff... The Quadwalker would use up your "3 ranks of stuff" all by itself.


The boys DO have at least 1 vehicle already standing by, as I recall, if transport is something you're worried about...

Aren't class zero things free? So then the quad Walker as I'm proposing it would use up my three ranks.

Or am I miss interpreting something or are you saying something else suggesting like I should be considering something else besides a class 3 vehicle?

It'd come down to context and the GM's feelings but perhaps Sabi could be playing pack horse for some extra equipment useable by the other members of the party. As it stands she's not going to have any gear of her own, but she'll be mounting saddlebags and it doesn't seem implausible that she could be loaded up with some useful things for the journey.

Maybe she can functionally provide an extra Wilderness Kit or something.

Why not take some gear that enhances you? Armored clothing or the shielded one? I think theres options enough but  an extra survival set might be useful especially as the two of you elft together and not with us.

Blame it on a commitment to 'realism,' as silly as that sounds in the context of this game. I've been very much stuck in the mindset of Why would a monster wear armour?

If Sabi did indeed leave the Ziggurat with Alyn (I originally applied assuming she was from the genetic facility or would link up with the party later on) then I think it's pretty reasonable for her to have been outfitted with some equipment before heading out, particularly with someone with his powers around to make sure there's no room for misunderstanding. That said, the GM has previously said to me in PMs that "...Sabi can be fitted with saddlebags (but no saddle)..." so using her as a mount probably (?) isn't on the table.

Re: OOC Thread
Well I do have telekinesis and such, so can use that for moving myself in a pinch. As long as I roll a 7+ anyway. :P

I'll have a bad day if it's 6 or less though. :(

So with that said, I think I am going to diversify things a bit.

Weapon: Combat Knife (Class 0, Melee, Severing)

Weapon: Stun Baton (Class 0, Melee, Shock)

Armor: Force-Armor (Class 2, Formal, Shielded, Tough)

Psi-Walker: (Class 1, Quadwalker, Controlled[Works well with his telepathy])

Free Rations From Ziggurat


NOTES: The baton is his preferred weapon of choice, but having a blade to allow us not just to cut enemies but things like rope, vines, and other things out in our travels is valuable which is why he has the knife too. I really like his Psi-Walker as it dovetails flavorfully with his long range telepathy ability. But for now I won't dedicate more than 1 of his three classes into it. The armor was inspired by Duke's suggestion and I've been toying with a force field armor concept for a bit now. This armor, in particular not only gives him an armor boost but the Tough Modifier is to help represent that the force field can repel things like snow, filter out hostile gas and radiation as needed, maybe buffer against severe heat, etc. The environmental protection is what attracted me thematically combined with the shielded modifier. But the armor will be a light-weight slick-looking suit that helps him adapt to a variety of environments.

I did consider removing "Tough" from the armor and adding "connected" instead to give him added computing ability, but if no one objects I think I'll keep shielded and tough for now and maybe we can find him computing stuff or armor upgrades later.

Re: OOC Thread
Seeing how little real loot we found in our travels i'd suggest grab the things you feel like are truest to what you want to be doing initially.

And instead of 'gear' as such why not ask if weapons and armor can be integrated? So instead of armor its the clams and those tentacles might get nice weapon stats that way.

Re: OOC Thread
I ran that sort of idea by the GM earlier in the week, having innate armour rather than separate gear, but was told it wouldn't really work as equipment should be something that can be dropped or lost rather than just a bonus. Also Sabi has special playbook moves that can be used to potentially shrug off damage or rampage through threats, so I don't think having clearly defined weapons is anywhere near as important for her as for a more human PC.

I'd have no problem with doing something like:

Armour: Ablative plating (Class 2: Armoured, Tough)
Kit: Assorted practical supplies (Class 1, Wilderness Kit)

or

Armour: Ablative plating (Class 1: Armoured)
Weapon: Prehensile tentacles (Class 1: Adjacent, Flexible, Piercing)
Kit: Assorted practical supplies (Class 1, Wilderness Kit)

If she's going to have started out the journey from the Ziggurat - not my original assumption when applying but very happy to roll with it - then I don't think it's unreasonable that they hurriedly printed her up a little extra protection, perhaps more because she saw that Alyn was being given fancy things and was very :o than because she actually needs them. She likes to feel included.

I don't require Sabi to start at the Ziggurat. It makes more sense to me that she join The Duke and Ajakstu Gul where they are, since where they are is a former mad-science genetic engineering facility...

But Sabi can have gear if her player wants. Up to her... "Onsu" (the facility computer) can gift them to her...

Re: OOC Thread
DISCLAIMER

I OOC have no intention of engaging in true pvp with other players. The way my powers work is first I need to make a mental link to someone, THEN as a separate thing all together I can do stuff like mind reading, do psychic healing on another, or what have you if need be if he wants to do anything else other than pure communication. Be it a positive or negative mental effect he needs to establish a psychic link first.

With the PCs he mostly wants to establish links for communication purposes but he may try to do some mind reading if he needs to confirm someone means no ill, if people act weird to see if they are being influenced, etc. I'll NEVER mind control or memory wipe or any other full-on pvp stuff like that though without talking about it OOC with people first.

Gotta be honest: my first thought on seeing a weird monster wouldn't be to directly link my brain to it XD

I'm not quite sure if this is something I need to address IC as it 'isn't immediately noticeable yet in-game,' but for narrative purposes I see no reason not to consent.

Re: OOC Thread
I know it's kind of odd but that's just how the power works, since this is a narratively-driven type of game so there's some ooc interaction for the IC parts of the power. You only really technically have a chance of noticing that he's trying to establish a psychic link if you were resisting as a player and then if I rolled too low. But in this instance he mostly just wants to see if he can communicate with you. At worst I might roll once to try to do a mind reading to see if you have hostile intentions or something that's about it.

He'll eventually try to connect to all of the player characters minds because even if he's not actively communicating with you guys he can do a long-range link up with anyone he's made a mental connection with which could be really useful if we have to split the group up. He actually has the ability to heal damage by using his own life to take the damage instead so there is some positive utility he can offer too. All of this is of course out of character knowledge still but I just wanted to let you know why I was offering it to you because out of character you as a player have a right to declare if you were resisting or not.

In this case you're not so I will continue.

Re: OOC Thread
Ya the only reason the telepathy has been so smooth is because number one the player did not contest the initial contact and two I'm not doing anything special beyond just talking mentally LOL which I feel is like the very basic of basic when you do a telepathic link with someone. If she had contested the initial contact I certainly would have had to roll though and probably at the minus one penalty. Like I said because she went with it I went with it.

But I figured if I even had to do something like Grant healing or mind read or whatever it would probably have some sort of penalty although the minus one seems what I was guessing as well just because her mind is so advanced and human like despite her being a monster. So at least it's good to know that what you ended up ruling was what I was guessing lol.

He will most likely say yes if you use it on a roll where failure would most like result into something spectacularly bad. On a no try another time.


If I may clarify a bit:

When something comes up, he can ask The Duke's player: "Is THIS what that prophecy was about?"

If The Duke's player says yes, then etc. etc.

No telling what the SECOND shot will do.

Also I've heard a lot of places are running out of Pfizer (which I had) and just giving Moderna. If that happens, who knows what THAT will do (although I've also heard it actually might give one better protection).

Re: OOC Thread
Alyn Reed:
Can you please tell me how stress works? Is that the same thing as health?


It's mental stress plus physical health all in one stat.




HEALTH:

There are 6 levels of Health:

--Full health

--Somewhat wounded (you could really use a number of stitches, or you bruised a rib, or wrenched something a bit, or are right on the edge of being shaky and/or lightheaded and/or nauseated... if it were any worse it would impair your performance, but you're okay to function for this moment)

--Wounded (like the above but worse, and you could use a couple of days of medical care-- but you can push through for now)

--In Bad Shape (you wouldn't mind a week or two of medical care, but you can still see and walk and fight if you have to, you're not literally about to die)

--Really Bad Shape (you can maybe do a few more things but then seriously you need to rest somewhere very soon)

--Dead



When you roll a 7-9, in some circumstances, the GM might say that your Health Level decreases by 1.

When you roll a 6 or lower, in some circumstances, the GM might say that your Health Level decreases by 1 level or more.




There are all sorts of amazing ways of healing yourself... The important thing is 1. having the time to use them, 2. they might need time to work, and 3. not running out of them, and, one supposes 4. finding more.



REST:

When you rest for some peaceful hours (at least 8), and get at least a little food and beverage into you, you may roll 2d6 plus your Forceful modifier.
--Higher than 12: You get 3 health levels back.
--10 to 12: You get 2 health levels back.
--7-9: You get 1 health level back.
--6 or lower: you get no health levels back.

Ah. If you take 6 health damage, yeah, you'll be in danger of dying.

But if a certain amount is other type of stress... more likely that instead of losing your life, you'll "lose it," period. Crying, screaming, hysterical laughter, berserk-- in your case, losing control of your powers... Until your stress level has had a little time to decrease again...

Alyn, there's gonna be gameplay resistance to your psychic plan (I'm not saying it'll be resistance on the part of the subjects, but in terms of game-mechanics math). I suggest to you that rolling Charming will be more likely to get you good results...

FYI, I am not one of those GMs who cares a lot about text color.

If and when you see me do it, it's usually because I know some players do really care about it and I'm trying to make them happy.

So anyway...

OOPS. Alyn's roll didn't turn out as well as one might have expected!

Perhaps this might be a good time for me to draw attention to the existence of the AID move?



AID

--When you attempt to help another character, say how, and roll ONE d6. The character you're attempting to help can use this roll in lieu of one of their own roll's dice. (If more than one player helps them, they can only keep the best 1 die from amongst all dice rolled). By using Aid, you will be exposed to any risks, consequences, or costs of their move, even if they didnít use your die.

--If you roll a 1, the GM will probably put you at risk, make trouble for you, or make things worse in general, even if the GM can't think of any way for you to share the same problems as the character you tried to help.

Re: OOC Thread
Maybe you can stunt it by sort of being like this really big and potentially dangerous or intimidating force in the background that's sort of being kept at Bay by the very nice and friendly Alyn. Sort of give them the stink eye if you will and using nonverbal cues encourage them to be more forthcoming with providing an answer to our questions. :P

Essentially you would be using your intimidate skill to help a bolster my diplomacy skill if that makes sense.

1. If Alyn's incorrect, and I need that red part explained to me, please do so.

2. If Alyn's right, and I therefore don't need it explained to me, well, roll to Aid following the rules if you're gonna do so (and let me know when and if you've done it)...

Nah. Aduz wants to pimp the ride. Scrapping the robots will give him parts for that. The Duke is prone to treat every problem with violence its why i made him stop and let the smart people deal with these robots.

I see no wait the Duke will aid in this situation that will not make the diplomacy just worce and as such no charming aid. If he was intimidating them on the other hand.

I also realize i am calling Ajakstu Aduz for some reason. And i have no idea where that is coming from.

Yeah, I figured that out-- barely-- from paragraph 1.

Maybe The Duke thinks it's Ajakstu Gul's "street" name. A-Duz. Ice-Gul. A-Diddy. The Original A-G.



Sounds like no Aid, and that we should move forward with Alyn's 7-to-9 result.

If so, I'll do that tomorrow...

The Dukes sosializing is all about stomping things and eating their food. These things got no food and are really wordy. Two things the Duke does not like. So yeah he is not to happy this new person keeps blabbering. But as the balbber person it means you will probably hug the social spotlight. Only difference is that unlike you the Lady who did that before failed her rolls all the wait time so time for the Duke to shine was a lot shorter ;-)

So on a purely narrative level if the mist does not resist again on a narrative and not even necessarily active level the initial contact then you can disregard my roll. I just put the roll there just in case.

Or I suppose if you allow contact to be established without opposition then you can use his roll as a mind reading attempt to try to get a read on it and see what the things all about and if it's harmful or not.

Re: OOC Thread
Since the parasite isn't accepting contact, and Alyn rolled a 9, I'd like to force the issue. I don't know how alien this thing's thinking is, but assuming worse-case it would apply a -2 penalty as an alien lifeform per my character sheet which is still a 7.

Or did something happen that made his roll result in a 6 or less and fails and he needs to take an xp?

I guess I'm asking for clarification.

The result was a 9, which is a partial success. I decided the success would be Kalsk and the partial part would be "but not the independent thing inside Kalsk."

So, not a 6 resulting in xp, no.

I should be okay with my force field armor but there are barriers make me a little bit cautious.

I think I would rather we take them out with the grenade if possible but if that is not viable then let's try to entangle them up in the barrier of thorns.

Alyn is going to fall back as he sees one as beelining for him and maybe try to use telekinesis or something to fight back.

1. Yes, but good question, thanks for asking.

2. Hmmmmm. I'm gonna say yes, if you don't screw up throwing it.

3. Hmmmmm. I'm gonna say same answer as #2. Either could be useful if you don't screw up tossing whatever-it-is.

Re: OOC Thread
My aid roll was just as bad.

However I have a question what about the Duke's prophecies? How does his prophecy mechanic work again? I have one affecting me and I want to know if I can use it to change my aid role or do something like that?

Edit: found it.

Duke: is this the prophecy you were talking about? Can I re-roll my 1d6? I'm thinking a metal monstrosity overhead that could cause blood on Stone fits throwing a bomb pretty nicely.

...So what I am hearing is:

BUT

--We are using the Prophecy... to fix the Aid...

BUT

...We are asking to re-assign the improved Aid to be to help The Duke's Atrocity (that happened after the Aid roll that was originally made to try (and failed) to help Ajakstu's toss)...?


Or...

If not that, then what are we doing, mechanically, here...?

My character is turning jaks lowest die into a four. I think the Duke was asking if I could aid his role but that would not eliminate the catastrophe of the bomb otherwise so I'm going to keep aiding the bomb using the prophecy.

I have no further plans for attacks "tonight."

Each of you who is damaged, use the Rest move, please. (In this situation, I am counting "at least 8" as having been covered by getting some sleep already.)



REST:

When you rest for some peaceful hours (at least 8), and get at least a little food and beverage into you, you may roll 2d6 plus your Forceful modifier.
--Higher than 12: You get 3 health levels back.
--10 to 12: You get 2 health levels back.
--7-9: You get 1 health level back.
--6 or lower: you get no health levels back.

I'll try to aid you Jak if you'd like to touch the screen. Otherwise, Alyn is going to attempt to see if he can get a telepathic link from it. However...I generally will suffer a -1 or -2 penalty to connect to most machines that think relatively human-like, and -2 or -3 penalty to really alien machines so honestly I'm more in favor of an aid other roll or mundane insight check.

I have +1 insightful.

I reckon so... (I might have gone easier on you, but your bio lines still say your health = "full," so I was like "he can take a big hit, after all, he's got full health..."

Re: OOC Thread
Our next steps, then, are going to be us leaving the robot. Alyn and Duke will close and re-seal the hatch, and Alyn will re-activate the trap on it (I think there was a trap?) with the data pad. Then he is going to tell the system to go reboot itself for a few days which should lock the titan down completely.

In that meantime, we're heading 40 clicks east to look for the military outpost. In no order of preference, our goals are:

*Alyn: wants to find info there about the titan, as well as something he can use to acquire ownership of the titan. Because if we can get that thing running we can try to fix it up and have the ultimate ride in style. Plus...the thing is cool as hell and I'm sure the GM wasn't expecting this twist.

*Ajak: Wants to find things we can scavenge, as well as anything that is interesting and exciting. I think he'd want to learn more about anything related to what the seeker was after, as would alyn.

*Duke: Wants to find more food sources.

NOTE: Alyn intends to have the Moths and Duke work together and "hunt" us some food if we encounter any more critters on the way, like those lizards or whatever they fought before.

AFTER all this is said and done, we are going to head to that town to get the parasite removed from our ally.

Yes. Not a problem (by which I mean: I won't require a roll for that)

Whomever you want-- but they'd like to stay together.

So if The Duke is with Ajakstu, it would make more sense for them to be with Alyn. (Because wherever The Duke stands or sits, there's more room somewhere else.)

Alyn: ...I think there's just two vehicles... since Ajakstu, as I recall, didn't come with one...

Ajakstu, The Duke: Am I right about that? Right? Right?

Four legs. No roof nor canopy, because there's no sun and no rain.

Meanwhile, between the left ("Alyn's") crab, and the right one ("The Duke's")... it seems like both are ready to be put down-- especially The Duke's... Just a little more will finish that one... and not a lot more for the left one...

Um, so if crabs are dead, what else is going on, are Kalsk and whomever okay, is Alyn's beauty horribly and irrevocably scarred?

Is the Duke still hungry?

Has the courier arrived with Ajakstu's lottery winnings?

I think a general situational overview and something like "you dine and rest and all are at full health"

But the courier and Alyn's disfigurement are certainly plus ups.

Kudos on The Tick reference.

Yes, we camp, dine and rest until all are at full health. By which I mean to say, Ajakstu feels no sense of urgency to complete whatever task his companions have signed up for. By which I mean, Ajakstu is not big on commitments or fulfilling promises to authority.

Okay then... everyone roll for the REST move.

REST:
When you rest for some peaceful hours (at least 8), and get at least a little food and beverage into you, you may roll 2d6 plus your Forceful modifier.
--Higher than 12: You get 3 health levels back.
--10 to 12: You get 2 health levels back.
--7-9: You get 1 health level back.
--6 or lower: you get no health levels back.

I have no plans to interrupt your rest for ONE usage's worth of the move... A lack of interruption beyond that, I absolutely do not guarantee...

So the dice having f***ed me, Ajakstu will become a pale version of Huilliam D'Averc in Michael Moorcock's Hawkmoon books (I can't call them novels).

D'Averc basically complained about his poor health and injuries constantly, yet just as constantly beat the heck out of a multitude of opponents.

Expect a lot of the first, and crumbs of the second.

Leveling up: All PCs start at Level 1. Every time a character fails a roll by rolling 6 or lower, they get 1 XP. When their amount of stored XP is equal to 9 + their Level, they may remove all their XP, and increase one of their scores by one.


Oh hey, anyone got enough XP to level up...?

So can I combine my Luck with my I Probably Shouldn't But I'm Curious?

As in, roll for Luck to use on the IPSBIC?

As in open that handle using my superlative abilities. I mean, of course, after I roll in the proper order.

As long as you roll twice, yeah.

...Maybe you should try IPSBIC first, though, and just see how that goes...

It's an old school dungeon crawl through the module B4, I think. The Lost Pyramid. Uses OSRIC rules. It's an old school dungeon crawl. While I acknowledge that D&D combat can really bog down in PbP here on RPOL, I am shocked by the number of posts I have to catch up on when I bounce into the game.

We're underground in an old mostly-automated (though with a few malfunctions here and there) supply depot, trying to get some supplies and stuff we need.

Something that sounds like a robot is coming our way... what its deal is, and whether it will be malfunctioning when it arrives, remains to be seen...

I second the vote on the newer new player being the fluffy pet playbook! We had a pet for a while but that player didn't stay on very long and in-game parted ways with us to go do other things. :(

Then they got me instead. :P

But I'd still rather have an actual large thing we can cuddle and stuff, and occasionally plead with to not bite us!

That's funny - I almost chose to be a big, fuzzy animal who would make it clear to everyone that he was not a pet.  Wish I'd known!

Instead, I'm just a regular human Survivor.  We'll see how it goes.

If I do something stupid and get whacked, maybe I'll come back as a ferocious yet cuddly beast.

I know we are a slow game but i don't think you should wait more then 48 hours for a player to respond boss. Just move the game on and let players catch up. We don't want to loose the new ones cause nothing is happening. Besides the duke needs to lick the new one!!

PS im open for a new prophecy but im drawing blanks all the time. probably the stress of my mom and aunt dying within a month messing up the creativity but i wanted to prophesize Ajakstu for this place but its just not coming to me. And that whiel i wanted to prophetise him shinies.

REST:

When you rest for some peaceful hours (at least 8), and get at least a little food and beverage into you, you may roll 2d6 plus your Forceful modifier.
--Higher than 12: You get 3 health levels back.
--10 to 12: You get 2 health levels back.
--7-9: You get 1 health level back.
--6 or lower: you get no health levels back.


So, Ajakstu gets 2 health levels back, The Duke, 3. Everybody note that in your bio lines (the next chance you get)...

whoa, Mardi Gras this year was a bit more than I had expected. Getting on the track as we speak (but just don't make any loud noises).

Welcome back. And you should totally post soon as you're in the midst of attacking robots!

You just saw the young man (Alyn) who was asking you to identify yourself before suddenly shoot an electrical current like a tesla coil at one robot. And now the big man who's all fat-muscle (Duke) is about to rend another with his bare hands. Followed by a third being able to command an insect attend him (jak).

So yeah...you just encountered a group of weirdos fighting robots.

Haha yes I am. This alyn is an alter reality version of starfinder alyn though.

And I'd never steal from the Duke. Merely repurpose ways for him to have fun and find food eating opportunities. Alyn had more than helped duke get fed so far that's for sure. :)

So I am thinking a 1 in 6 chance of aiding The Duke is pretty slim odds. Same odds as me slipping on mant goo and falling prone before them.

If I don't aid, it seems there are three of them down, and two of the remainder are busy with Alyn. Now those odds I like!

Re: OOC Thread
So I'm leaning towards the flash bangs or the magnetic knife.

We are not, or maybe have not been, the most tactical group. And I am most certainly not the most comabtive character.

Are the kits a better idea?

But things that go bang are certainly the best choice for every situation.

This group is pure chaos and pure eccentricity. But that fits really well with the theme of this game and this party. Our characters have mood swings and modes and that just like I said fits. It's almost like a sort of tongue and cheek post-apocalyptic sort of thing.

Went with the wilderness kit.

As I am now in possession of "climbing tools" twice over, I will make the stretch assumption that there are harnesses, carabiners, climbing axe and serious mountaineering gear such that if disposed to do so, Ajakstu could assist the others in scaling any sheer cliff face they encounter.

And yes, Alyn, I know you can levitate, but that lacks both subtlety and panache.

Alyn would you like to make a charm roll to see if you can soothe the really really pissed of hulking heap of meat thats your Dukie?If you don't or fail the Duke will go killing. On a soft hit he will kill a few of them and then return and on a hit he will properly go inspecting.

So-- just to be perfectly clear-- The Duke hears Alyn calling him back, and then he kills some more Mants-- in a horrible, epic, legendary way-- and then comes back?

You have to eviscerate them to get the point across.

Has Alyn taught you nothing? Other than good fashion sense and taste and food of course. :)

I am trying to give pesky more agency in this scene because he's newer to the game and I want him to have a chance with the mechanics some. I figured this is something of a tutorial for him and this way if he needs it I'm there to help him if he needs it.

I always favor adult rated games. Not because I want every post to devolve into a porno-shoot (I usually fade to black or grey even in adult games in those cases), but so that simply we have the most artistic license possible.

And yes I can go purple if you want.

Mm. I was imagining 3. But maybe that's just my imagination.

Maybe it'll depend on how your rolls go from now on...

Re: OOC Thread


Hmmmmm. Alyn's roll of 9 should mean that things go partially like he wants, but only partially.

But it's challenging to interpret that... what should "mostly successful" look like for this situation...?

Suggestions...?

Re: OOC Thread
Maybe it's successful in the moment, but the raider's follow through doesn't happen as intended?  He doesn't find his friends and 'tell them to scram on out of here'.  He gets some of his friends and tracks us down?  Something else?

Re: OOC Thread
I was thinking that it should be related to what Alyn actually did, not the result of the bandit's actions.

So like...maybe it comes back kind of mangled, but mostly restored? Or something like that anyway?

Or maybe Alyn takes a -1 on his next roll this scene as a backlash from the mini time-flux?

Re: OOC Thread
Manipulating time is bad. He has just created an infinite amount of bandits ripped to pieces and then send off to tell his friends to scram. So now you got a bandid walking off to tell his friends its time to scram. How long till those friends feel they are with enough to challenge these newcommers?

I'd probably use something like this if he rolled a six or less lol. Like the time effect got away from him or he lost control of it or had all kinds of unintended consequences. But he did roll a nine so it should be (mostly) what he wants lol!

That's the first time I think I've seen Ajakstu use intimidation or a heavy handed approach on something. Mind you, considering he's traveling with walking timebombs like The Duke and Alyn I suppose Ajak must seem positively cuddly. :P
