Re: OOC THREAD
Mum-Ra-Lud:
The GM:
Mum-Ra-Lud, there is someone (not necessarily a Great Name) present in the city of Timinit that wants something from you and/or Dim.

Who or what is this being, and what does he, she, or it want from y'all?

She appears, at first, a child ... but one never grown, but somehow aged as though 800 years old.
A very, very old, child.

Nobody present seems to know her, or where she came from ... and she doesn't know, herself, who she is.   In fact, she keeps asking, "Do you know who I am?" of others.
She seems harmless, and the kind among the crowd seem compassionate to, if freaked out by, her.
"Do YOU know who I am?"

Others, freaked out, find no compassion, and seem close to driving her out ... with rock or stick, if need be.
"DO you know who I am?"

But Mum-Ra-Lud suspects a truth:  this is not mortal human, but a Great Name.
A Great Name that has lost its identify.  "Do you KNOW who I am?"
He suspect that when he can divine her true Name, and return it to her, she will be revitalised ... returned to her true form.
"... but, do you know WHO I AM?" she asks, full of confusion and sadness.



Dig it.

I plan to start you guys off tomorrow.

If I don't in the next 15 hours, nudge me.

Re: OOC THREAD
Okay, new thread posted.

Dim, remember that ONCE PER DAY you can use a +1 bonus from a trophy. (And you haven't used it yet today.)

Mum-Ra-Lud, remember that you can call on the sun for awesome favors... but this will also make the sun impatient with you sooner or later... (You start at the sun giving you +1 to a roll... if you want to call in a favor.)

Also remember that you each have special actions:

DIM:
--Coerce
--Lead
--Test Yourself
--Attempt to Gain a New Follower

Mum-Ra-Lud:
--Offer What They Desire
--Coerce
--Thieve
--Escape

Whoops. Sorry.

This is what happens when boredom overcomes common sense.

Re: OOC THREAD


Hmmmmm. The way the consequence you chose from Test Yourself is written, I suppose you don't have to roll and use the Attempt to Gain a New Follower move in order to gain a new follower. (It might HELP, but then again there's a chance it might not.)

However, even if you choose not to roll for that move right now, I do need to know your intentions. I presume you're going to take one or more followers... but are you going to try to get one, or more than one?

Or am I wrong?

Re: OOC THREAD
I don't really know. I'm still trying to wrap my head around the way this works.

The Playbook:
"You are witnessed! You may take a free +1 to save for a future roll, and take followers from among the witnesses!"


How do I take followers? Do I just say 'Follow Me' and see who responds?

...Dim, I'm gonna ask you to do a Words roll... But you can use your Follower bonus from your new Follower if you want, since he's standing right there...

Alternatively, you can wait and see if Mum-Ra-Lud might show up in the nick of time and Word something or Mind something or get a spirit to intervene or something...

Are you using that +1 you got earlier? Or are you using your Follower bonus? (because you're obviously not doing both):

quote:
--Also, once a day, a significant FOLLOWER you have can be used to give you +2 on a roll.


I dunno why I said that would be +2 instead of +1. I've gone back and forth about it-- considering knocking it down to +1 like Trophies, considering raising Trophies to +2 like Followers, considering knocking them each down to +1 but letting one use each 3 times a day...

But I finally decided to just let it ride, trust past-me's judgement, and see what would happen.

So... tl;dr, your Follower bonus is +2.

If that's NOT what you were doing, I will also ALLOW you to do it now, if you wish...

Re: OOC THREAD
Well, I was using the Follower bonus, but had forgotten it was a +2, instead of a +1. So I guess I really rolled a 7?

Hey GM, how are you handling healing in this game ... first aid, and patching up wounds?

Mum-Ra-Lud:

If you have a wound, you seek healing//treatment.

If you manage to find and get it, the wound goes away.

But I have to sort of tell you it's official. You can't post "Mum-Ra-Lud, now that the battle is over, goes to the old man's cabinet of medicines and finds bandages, and uses them to bind his wound."

I mean, you can, but it won't heal a wound.

Also, the old man will probably have something to say about that.

But more importantly, bandaging isn't healing, anyway-- that's just not dying from blood loss. THAT, you're allowed to do all you want, if there are no other crises happening.

The best thing to do is find a healer. But even after you do, they might need you to go get them a special herb, or they might need some other special thing to do a healing ritual, or, heaven forfend, they might want payment up front.

Of course on the other hand, YOU might ask a Great Name to heal them. But you know how THAT can go...

I want a portrait for The Old Child, but I can't find anything that remotely seems good.

Suggestions?

Re: OOC THREAD
It's not exactly a code. It's just an abbreviation, really.

M=male
C=Creatures
P=Pokemon/Digimon

Go to the Male section, and read across the Creatures line until you get to the Pokemon link.

Yes. I didn't think to post about it (sorry) because I just accepted it as a given that she would, since there was no reason she wouldn't.

Whether Dim's new follower also gets told or not is up to Dim (and his fellow former deputy, for that matter).
