 You where very correct about the Cardinal. He was an extreme Royalist, and did everything in his power to bring Louis to absolute power in France.

In reply to Alexandre Maltaise (msg # 6):

That bit is something of a prelude because most people who enjoy the genre and even play the game have not read the book; they get their perspectives from the movies.  Some of the movies are quite good (the '70's one with Richard Chamberlin stands out) and many are fun, but they often portray the Cardinal as a would-be usurper and traitor.

Hey everyone.  Glad to be playing with you.  I'm ready for some swashbuckling adventures.

There's some great detail in that background, I'll be sure to parse all the way through it.

So are we thinking that we're Musketeers working for the government?  Or is all of that still up for grabs?

I'll start rolling up my character and building my sheet.

I sent a note to one other player who showed interest in the Seeking GM forum.  A couple of questions:

1.  How many of you own the book(s), which ones?
2.  Do you know anyone else on the site interested?
3.  Shall we advertise for more players?
4.  I'm considering either "The Man Behind the Mask" or "Monsieur LeDroit's Secret" as first adventure, any preferences?  Another one?

In reply to Game Master (msg # 9):

1) Are you talking about the rulebook for flashing Blades or the Musketeer books?  If the rulebook, yes I own the flashing blades book and maybe another of the FGU books but I can't remember which.  If the Musketeers, I own the first one but read all of them about 25 years ago, lol.
2) I don't know anyone.  I can reach out if you'd like.
3) I'm fine with the two PCs, but if you want a bit more to keep the momentum up and for more storylines, or you just like fuller games, go for it.  I personally don't like more than about 5 PCs though.
4) I'm fine with either.

Did you roll two sets of abilities?  There are a lot of dice rolls.  Also, you have 12points or skills with Literacy.  I also see an 8 on 2d6.  If that was for build it I average, not stocky.  If for height, it is also average

The Boar's Head Tavern (OOC)
I rolled 6 times for attributes (the first one didnít use the roll 4 drop one command).

Then I chose stocky and rolled height (the 8 that was average)

Then I rolled for my advantage for wealth (20)

Then I rolled for my yearly salary (6 for a rogue).

If thatís too hinky, or you want me to roll again for this stuff with descriptors, I can.

But I miscounted the skills so Iíll have to figure that out. Or if you want I can drop that wealth roll. The lack of an advantage gives me an extra skill point, so I can use that for literacy.

No problem. I adjusted the skills (Got rod of carousing and moved the free point to main gauche).

Iíve GMed a few games on the site so if you have any questions let me know and I may can help. When you get ready want to open up the Character sheets in here and make them editable you can do that by going to the GM Menu. Clicking on character sheets. Then click on make editable to the user (or something like that).  It can be hard to find at first. You can also put in a template for everyone to use for the character sheet if you want to do that to Standardize everything.

Okay, didn't know I had to do that.  I just made them editable.  I don't have a template for the character sheet, but it is easier to read if things are grouped together:  Ability scores like in DnD, Skills listed, weapons expertise with Chance to hit, etc.  I have a form fillable PDF sheet for this game, but I don't think we can use that with this site, can we?

Re: The Boar's Head Tavern (OOC)
Itís not showing up yet. Sometimes the site has problems with that. Itís always a real pain for me.  So you may need to go back to the character sheet page, then basically open each characters CS, type something in there like ďthis is yours to editĒ then hit user editable or whatever that wording is.

I donít think you can do a fillable pdf. What you could do is link to the url for the pdf, have everyone download, it fill it out, then upload an image in their character sheet. Then it would be consistent.

Alternatively just type it in or turn it into an html/word format using an OCR or something online. That could work.

Uploading an image of the completed sheet would be nice, I can see everything where I am used to looking for it, and as things are edited in the originals you can update the image.  Sounds okay?

Okay, note that he would be very suspicious walking around with the helmet on.

In the Parry column you can put the chance to parry, the bse is the same as the chance to hit, but it uses the weapon Parry bonus.  With French style the Main Gauche has a +3 to parry, a hat, cloak baton or Buckler would have +2 and a sword or dagger is +1.

Sorry, the sword or dagger +1 is for left-handed parry.  They use their normal parry bonus when in the right hand as main weapon.

Re: The Boar's Head Tavern (OOC)
Am willing to create backstory with other characters if you can think of a way and want one with my guy.

What I am thinking of so far is, at the age of 6 until about 9 was a gleaner. A child who would search the battlefields for anything of value to survive. Once I found a wounded nobleman whom I helped to save, he in turned took me as a ward of his House. I received more training etc becoming a soldier/ loyal guard. Currently he will be 18-20 years old with some time in service as i was apprenticed etc. Thinking was officially in the service at the age of 17 so between 1-3 years of duty already.

Anyone see anything wrong with that concept for the timeframe and the game. Also if anyone can see of a connection with me which we can use to start with.

In the character creation thread there is a link to a form villa le PDF character sheet.  Use that, then in place of the character sheet link a readable resolution screen shot of the sheet.  You can change the image as changes are made to the sheet.  For an example of what I mean, look at the NPC I rolled up, De Soucy (should I ever get to play, my character.)

If you own the books Iíll trust you to calculate skill points, HP and encumbrance on your own.  And of course, not to read the adventures (though I will make some changes)

Well Marsuvees' character sheet is what I'm looking for, you're good.  I didn't realize you can't see each others' sheets, only the description.

In which case, I'll ask each of you to put something in the description that tells who you are: your background (Rogue, Gentlemen, Nobleman, Soldier), any titles you may have, including military rank, Social class number, the height and weight descriptors, hair and eye color, distinctive features, and anything that an acquaintance would know about you.

If you want to link in a picture from another source besides the icon you can add that as well.

You do not have to know each other yet, though I encourage linkages among you.  You will become a loose association of swashbucklers, who will hopefully become fast friends, and who knows?

We will be based in Paris, though you don't need to be Parisian.  If you don't own a house (via the Land Advantage) then you can rent a room in a townhouse (as D'Artagnan did in the book) or find some other arrangements.

Luc, what rank are you by chance in the black musketeers, You start as a sergeant for free did you buy any extra. I am one rank Higher as a Subaltern the lowest rank of Officer but we could serve together in the same unit if you like. I am only 18 years old with not much experience but lots of talent and potential if you will. I was brought up from the ranks, so thinking we could of been sergeants together or at least at the same time.

didn't buy rank to start, for an advantage he rolled up filthy rich, didn't want to overplay that or exploit it outright. if luc stays with the musketeers he may see about ranking up a bit. he is still just a sergeant and kind of a known hothead. thought i'd see how it plays out for a while.

Anyone have a sheet they can post in ooc so I can cut and paste into sheet area . The one I can't open my reader might be bad.

Looking forward to gaming with everyone soon.

I can upload a blank one if that would be helpful. Thereís something about that file where it seems like you have to wait for about 5 minutes for it to load. I just walked away from
My computer, made a sandwich and by the time I came back it was ok.

Trevor Loup-Garou:
Sounds great, we can serve together and with all your wealth you can buy your young 2nd lieutenant drinks. Depending on how strong our bond is, you can either stay in the barracks or at my House.


That sounds pretty good, we may be from platoon or something. Thanks, let's go buy fruit and wine to keep on hand for the woman who come calling.

Re: The Boar's Head Tavern (OOC)
I will be updating my sheet later today. Anyone who has played this system before can give me some advice. How hard would it be for a character to get a loan in game if needed. I have spent most of my money we start with already, have a small reserve for the start say about 1/4 of my yearly income set aside. The loan would be for like 120L if it is needed  and that mainly if the game goes the route of a war  for the soldiers etc. If we go on a campaign he will want a full suit of proper armor.

Re: The Boar's Head Tavern (OOC)
It's easy enough to get a loan from a bank; you're an officer after all. 10% is the usual interest (pg. 39).

Re: The Boar's Head Tavern (OOC)
TY, I don't mind light armor for the city etc but a real war requires one to wear a fulls et of good armor as we will be using it no matter how good we are.

Re: The Boar's Head Tavern (OOC)
the biggest difference between the Cuirassiers and the Musketeers on the battlefield was that the Musketeers were used in the same manner as Dragoons and fought dismounted. The Cuirassiers fought from horseback, often using lance and sword instead of firearms to break up formations or capture artillery, while Musketeers rode up and fought dismounted to always use their firearms. In reality, most of the time they were deployed on foot and marched with the Pikemen who would form a line between them and the enemy Cavalry. DuMont really made the musketeers seem so valiant and dangerous in a fight. They were elite shooters with good training in close combat due to how slow their weapons were to us, but they most often shot firearms in war and swung swords in town.

Re: The Boar's Head Tavern (OOC)
I put the intro up.  When your character is done please post his introduction.

Note that I'm not asking and don't want every post to be a novella, but a single line of spoken text with no description of tone, body language or at least internal monologue is not appropriate.  Third person past tense please, as we are telling a tale here.

Thank you.

Re: The Boar's Head Tavern (OOC)
Posted.  Sorry about the weird use of tense in there.  I typed it out and posted, then remembered you wanted 3rd person past tense, so I tried to update it, but I'm sure I missed some occurrences.  I'll keep my eyes on it going forward.

Re: The Boar's Head Tavern (OOC)
Looks fine, no worries.

I play on another board as well and the posting conventions are a little different.  In some of my games here I see a lot of one line posts, in some cases just a single line of spoken text with no context, tone, description or anything.  I don't like that, it reads poorly, like listening to a movie but not seeing the screen.

Thanks!

I understand, thanks for letting us know.  Also waiting for Pierre to finish up his character

If your character is finished please go ahead and post your introduction for the evening of the first day; Marsuvees, Adam and Luc already began.

Re: The Boar's Head Tavern (OOC)
I'm reading the post as though he has been there all along, and don't think that will work.  Marsuvees, best if you re-write that as Black arriving late.  The Archduke will then leave it to the others to brief him.  Fortunately, you can't see his disapproving expression.  :)

"Ditto" is an unacceptable post.  Please, post something or substantial or not at all, and please don't post only OOC material; that is what this thread is for.  What are you referring to in any case?
