The Rules of the Game

This thread will include for easy player reference several sections such as Relevant Links, a Glossary of Common Terms, and Frequently Asked Questions (with Answers).

The Ourea | Heroes of the Guild - Campaign Primer mirrors most of the information here on RPOL. Actual discussion on the game rules can occur in either comments in that Google Doc, in the 'OOC: Rules Discussions' thread, or in private threads.

Worlds Without Number
    WWN is the base ruleset used for this game. Download here: Worlds Without Number: Free Edition. I myself have access to only the free edition myself, so if you'd like to utilize any material from other sources you'll have to provide a copy of that info to me for approval.

Styled Text Guide

Styled Text For Me (GM)
Orange
  • (IC) threads - OOC info, Dice Roll Results, etc.
  • (OOC) threads - Headings (often in SmallCaps)
Brown
  • It's like Bold for me; used to highlight key words.
Yellow
  • (IC) threads - NPC speech.
Italic
  • Quotes, thoughts, proper names/titles. See also 'Brown'.
Green
  • (OOC Threads) - Important, often timely Notices.
Styled Text For You (PCs)
Orange
  • (IC) threads - OOC info, Dice Roll Results, etc.
  • (OOC) threads - Headings, maybe?.
various
  • Each player will choose a (hopefully) unique color to represent his/her character's speech.
  • Colors are granted per GM approval on a first-ask, first-serve basis.
  • Use quotes in your narratives as well as coloration.
Italic
  • Thoughts that are not spoken by players. For storytelling / characterization purposes only.

Frequently Asked Questions (with Answers)

  1. What is the "Lucky Sign" we rolled for?
    • Think Elder Scrolls. Every character gets to start with a special blessing, and there are ways to change it through adventuring. It's just a little something I wanted to throw in for world flavor. Here's the link: Heroes of the Guild - Campaign Primer | Lucky Sign.

  2. What are the "Interesting Things" we rolled for? Can you point me in the right direction?
    • It's an idea I borrowed from the core book of an RPG called Shadow of the Demon Lord. Basically, everyone gets a free weird trinket or something similar that might help spark background or story or something. I can't really point you in any direction for it; simply let me know what you rolled and I'll let you know what you get.
