Re: Out Of Character Discussion
Hi all, Rex Dauntless, your sword and whip fighter, is here to save the day! I'm the confident, dashing hero, making up for a lack of book smarts with a surplus of courage!

Time to find a portrait and then check into the combat thread.

Re: Out Of Character Discussion
There is a max of 20 dice I believe on the diceroller for using the side.

You could also just roll 15d20+whatever in the main normal dice roll choice and choose "Record Each Die" checkbox. It has a drop function for advantage/disadvantage so you could drop the lowest or drop the highest (which I found by accident also still works if you entering dice to roll on the side in the manual area).

Re: Out Of Character Discussion
I forgot how much armor Rex wears... so this portrait is a better choice. I liked the attitude of the first one, though.

Anyway, let's have a fun game, and I'll second the option of letting the DM roll off-site if that's easier.

I mean...it's not like we can really see the armor in the picture anyway, and you could always put an picture in the description to show the armor if you wanted to or something. I say go with the picture you like better.

In reply to Braaka Nightseer (msg # 35):

True enough, but I don't see him wearing that much over the chain mail. This one will do.

Also, am I the only human in this group? I rarely play humans myself, but it still feels a tiny bit strange that the group is so diverse. I guess that's why everyone's setting off for a new world, though. Oh, and this human understands Tumenril's Elven, which probably irritates him a bit, eh?

Iím sure he hasnít paid you any notice. And if you speak it to him he just regards you with disdain as if you have befouled him.  He is very pro Elf and it will take a bit to get him to soften up.

Re: Out Of Character Discussion
Varx can shift into a human form any time you're feeling lonely Rex :)

Late Note: hmmm...I don't think that reads as innocently as I'd intended.

Ha!

Oh, and Tumenril, I'm sure Rex hasn't picked up on the disdain. Hopefully that turns into more of an endearing ignorance than a smug self-centered-ness...

Will be interesting to see how it plays out.


Varx do we know that your shape shifter? Or do we all just think your an Elf? Depending it will change how Tumenril treats you.

Re: Out Of Character Discussion
Did everyone come in knowing each other or ate you all individuals on the same boat heading to the same place?

I'm good with working out shared backstories

Re: Out Of Character Discussion
I understood it as getting to know each other or at least be aware of each other on the boat with disparate backstories. However I'm down for building some backstory with some or all of ye.

Mr DM, I think we are just waiting to move forward with the combat at this point right?

Re: Out Of Character Discussion
the degree of shared backstory will determine who would and wouldn't know about Varx as being a changeling.

if we just met on the ship, regardless of how much time spent together, he would not have revealed this information about himself.

if we have a shared backstory that precedes this voyage then it is likely it would be shared information.

Re: Out Of Character Discussion
I can do a short shared backstory, nothing more than a few weeks long, and it can't work with any druids, or elves.  With a bit of preference for someone familiar with city life, and in the port we left from.

A simple soldier. Can share some backstory with another army background.

Any one going to pronounce the time of death or shall we keep up the CPR that is waiting for a while yet?

Re: Out Of Character Discussion
I've been playing on rpol for 20 years...I'm not saying the GM won't resurface, and I truly hope he (or she) does...in my experience, with a brand new game...an unexplained 5 day absence usually means it's a done deal.

I must unfortunately admit that this fits my experience as well. But anyway, got nothing better to do, so I'll wait...

I'll wait as well. DM hasn't signed in since the Feb 7th so it could just be real life has him held up.

Re: Out Of Character Discussion
   Quick message to let everyone know I'm leaving the game, for obvious reasons. No hard feelings, it's hard to run games on RPoL even in the best circumstances.

  Good luck with this and other games on RPoL. See you around.
