Good day to you all..

This thread is mostly for new citicens who are looking to start in the town, but unfamiliar with the rules. If you want a mentor, or wish to be one, Please post your requests here. It is my personal recomendation that when choosing a mentor, that they have been registered for about 3 months or so, but that is only a reccomendation. Choose your mentor as you see fit.

It is recomneded that you include some information about yourself as well as your character when asking for a mentor. age, timezone, and basic "how you want to play your character" information would be a good place to start.

I guess I'm already a mentor, and I'll probably continue to be so, so I might as well be on the list.

I offer myself up as a mentor, if anyone is willing to second that...

Believe me Destro Yersul, you don't want your robe coloured pink.....

*Death looks at the list*

If you want I can be a mentor. Maybe for the people in the wierd time zones. ;)

Murky_Pool
2006-09-13, 06:31 AM
Weird Time Zones, yes

If it doesn't require any serious knowledge of D&D mechanics, I can certainly help people with not god modding and keeping characters seperate and that sort of normal, polite communication between people thing.

I don't DM D&D though so apart from the most basic PHB type questions, I don't have a lot of knowledge.

Incidentally, I like the concept. I hope it works out and people use it

I love that Alarra's on the "approved" list. It's funny cause it's redundant.

I too offer my words for mentoring, should the council accept.

Destro_Yersul
2006-09-13, 12:20 PM
You're right. I don't want my cloak to turn pink. *makes mental note to never ever call Earin "Erin", or in any other way insult the person with total control over his avatar*

Sure, I'd love to help out some nubs.

Although game mechanics help should be found elsewhere from my person.

We ment.

Result of an action or process: advancement.
Means, instrument, or agent of an action or process: adornment.

So...what exactly do mentors do?

This mentorship program is for those that want to learn the ropes of an RP style game, as well as lead some driving storylines themselves. There are a lot of peticulars to role playing effectively, and having a Mentor will help newbs get better aquainted in the town.

Quick version: we tell you how to not piss people off... ;D

Like spelling. ::)

Nah, just kidding. We love our cuddly 7-foot tall bloody scythe-wielding silver skinned mayor, even if he can't spell. It's just a minor issue compared to things like stupidity, of which there's plenty in the world to go around, although I have not been gifted with such.

Alas, such is life.

Sneak

As a matter of fact, I sold my soul to the devil. Or maybe it was some Chinese kingpin. I hear there's a big demand for soul harvesting in the Chinese black market.

AmberVael
2006-09-13, 09:30 PM
You gave your everlasting soul to the devil?
Well I figured I wasn't using it...

Sneak
2006-09-13, 09:32 PM
I wouldn't really call my Soul everlasting. It kind of petered out when I turned 9 or 10, when I got more interested in Rock and other genres.

Hoseki
2006-09-13, 09:35 PM
A Chinese kingpin? Hmm. I should look into this.

We need to get some newbs to look here, and get these mentors to begin mentoring. Any thoughts as to how?

Murky_Pool
2006-09-14, 08:27 AM
Perhaps a form would be useful, something so that people can say What sort of mentoring they're looking for, What times they're on, What they're intending to do. That sort of thing.

Atreyu the Masked LLama
2006-09-14, 08:44 AM
I'll happy help out someone if they so desire. It may be the ego talking, but I think I can help write a good villian. Someone beyond "I'm evil because I say I am," and more along the lines of "I'm evil because I specifically targeted the 13 year old kit whenever I attacked." sort of thing.
Also, I can give good advice on entering the Town. A "how not to be be ignored" guide.

Destro_Yersul
2006-09-14, 12:05 PM
Llama, the Godruped storyline proves you can write a good villain.

AmberVael
2006-09-14, 12:18 PM
The villains in this town need better motivations. Seriously, some are just like "I'm taking over town, cause I feel like it!" Even if that is your goal, you need something more behind it.
Heck, what really ticks me off is that people think villains have to be evil. You can have good and neutral villains too. Good villains are hard to create sometimes, but just take a look at that paladin in the Goblin webcomics.
As for neutral villains, well, I hope I am doing a good job at that with the Master. He has done some evil things, but he isn't exactly evil himself. He is simply attempting to uphold his Laws. Most people don't like his arrogant and crazy methods of doing things though.

If you want a fine example of a semi-villain one can really admire, look not further than my hero Trog. The guy's a morally-challenged scumbag, but he's utterly charming and compelling as well. I dream of the day I can create a character as deep and challenging as Trog.

I think it doesn't really matter, with people whose power fluctuates from mid-level to gods money isn't really an object, but massive payments at one time aren't the best idea.

I had me a idear:

I'm thinking I'd like to write up a guide for the Mentorship program, so we can make sure all our recruits are getting roughly the same information. While we do have the Welcome to the Town (http://www.giantitp.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.pl?board=town;action=display;num=1154409815) thread, I'd like to create something a bit, ah...easier to read, and with some links to real-game examples.

Some topics, off the top of my head:

-Character Creation
-Roleplaying
-Godmodding
-Conflicts and Combat
-Death and Resurrection
-Town Commerce
-[Events]
-The Role of the Town Council

So here's the deal: I want input on this. * I'd like to know if there are topics I'm missing, but what I reallu really really[/u] want are what you think are some good examples, that I could link to. * Did you see a really good fight, or some awesome roleplaying? * Maybe a chance to godmod that someone [i]didn't take? * A cool way of dealing with the afterlife?

Whatever they are, PM me the links and I'll take a look. *Don't post links here, that's now what this thread is for and it'll just get cluttered.

Again,

PM me the links.

Thanks in advance for everybody's input. * With any luck I should be able to get this started next week.

Edited for clarity of thought.

Very good points ;)
But that does sound good El Jasepero, we could have a standard sheet for everyoe to have.

Also Ascobol, you will have no trouble finding a mentor, there is many willing people out there, basically you can pick one of those who said they wish to be a mentor themselves.

It may be a good idea to post your timezone and when you are most likely to be active so you get one that will be on around about same time as you.

Ack, are we turning the Town into a rule-based game where you have to ask the Council to go through with every action?? Or did I misunderstand something (likely)?

I really like the freeform RP we have going on now, even if we have to OOC chat here and there to stop (usually unintentional) godmodders.

Flabbicus
2006-09-23, 01:36 PM

Hey,

I would love to take part in The Town; however, after reading all of the introductions to The Town I feel that I don't know where to begin or how to make a character that will stand out. I would like to have a mentor that can answer some questions and even help me create a character (I have ideas so maybe a mentor could help me fix them up a bit heh.)

Anyways I'm looking to create a silly little character. Nothing to big for a first character, but has enough rping value.

Besides that I'm open to anything! I'm in Eastern Time if that makes any difference. I also hope I can contribute to The Town!

-Adios

Ack, are we turning the Town into a rule-based game where you have to ask the Council to go through with every action?? Or did I misunderstand something (likely)?

I really like the freeform RP we have going on now, even if we have to OOC chat here and there to stop (usually unintentional) godmodders.

No, we are keeping it free form, but this mentor ship program will help introduce new comers into the town enviroment.

And, sorry for not posting for a while, I have thought that maybe the format of this page should be changed, to be like the avatar requests. I am going to leave the list of mentors, but remove those looking for one. I think that if you want a mentor, post here, and let some one pick you up. I would also like to change it to where the council doesnt have to aprove mentors, they just have to be titans. (even that is optional, it is to the descretion of the mentoree...) Let me know what you think...

a) RP
b) Be funny
c) Have your character be a jerk,
d) all of the above
e) all of the below
f) use lists with way too many letters in them
g) I just wanted to put in a G because I've always wanted to do that. It's my life-long dream. Now that it's been accomplished, I'll need to do another one. Hmm.

Destro_Yersul

Real life rules don't apply unless you want them too, drink 100 beers, stay awake for 48 hours straight, but remember it is vaguely rooted within reality.


And most importantly of all, have fun with it.

From my thread discussing the IC problems with The Town, I feel that it would be best if the titan part of the first post was removed. It can and has been viewed as a form of elitism and classism, while anyone can spam their way into Titanhood.

I'm posting in EST.

Im most likely gonna be the type of person that knows much about people, but people dont know much about him. Aragon meets Nosferatu ;D ;D ;D. I will avoid fights but i will NOT hesitate to defend myself. Honor is a good thing IN HEALTHY AMOUNTS. In other words: Hold your word (when possible) but dont be "you insulted my moustache!!" *stab* like.

I live in Denmark (Im 8 to 10 hours ahead of U.S) and im 12 years old. My name is Simon.

A good mentor hmm. Anyone friendly and much humor (not necesarily good humor) Also im not an english expert so my gramma and spelling is going to be far from perfect.

Step 5: Wait.

But seeing as you're a paladin, I suspect you may be a little more interested in someone more paladinny. Such as Sir Herbert VII over here.

No. Actually, you pick two possible mentors. The two 'chosen ones' enter an arena (during a thunderstorm) that I like to call the MENTORDOME. They then engange in an ancient ritual of mortal combat. They duke it out until one of them wins, and then that one will have the privelege of being your mentor.

Short version? Yeah, just pick one.

Renegade Paladin, I would suggest heading to the Police Station thread. It's a good place to start with playing a person of neutral - lawful alignment, it's easy enough to join and or quit being a police officer (Are you neutral or good in alignment, great you're hired!), plus it gives you a good reason to traverse about the town and arrestmeet people. Captain Murky Pool - Red Thing, is top notch for helping people with the how to's of being in town.

Of course, I may just have an affinity towards the police station since I was once captain of it.:P....))

Mortia De Luna Draco
2006-10-12, 02:50 AM
Mentor list: not a problem.

As for the removal of the Titan thing, that is just a person opinion of mine, and it has been discussed before. Please, don't be offended, but I feel that personal who are a titan have a little more experience to give out than other, as far as Roll playing is concerned. I modified it to say that it is only a recommendation, and no one need follow it. As I have stated repeatedly that it is only my opinion, it stays. I have made no (nor have the power to make) any requirements regarding titans running things.

Please, if this is to start a discussion, put it in the town hall, not here. I will be more than happy to discuss my reasons to anyone who wants to know them there.

Trouble is, Gaheris as a character doesn't tend to trust the Watch no matter where he goes. He spent half his lifetime watching them arrest him and others who turned to petty crime for survival while letting big criminals with money for bribes or muscle for threats literally get away with murder. He's highly unlikely to just sign up with the police.

I'm nosing around and I think I could manage to have an easier time playing in this, as opposed to what I consider my dreadful luck at playing in the PbP games... but when I looked at the character descriptions I saw a few numbers here and there. If someone would be willing to help me out in building my character, I'd very much appreciate it. I've been roleplaying elsewhere online, but I've never actually played D&D. Just need help on the mechanics so that I don't get all screwy in trying to make a charrie. Eastern time zone.

Here in the town stats matter very little (unless you are in the arena, in which case I, as the judge, get very picky). Many characters are very unset in ability, and some use abilities that don't even exist. As long as you have an idea of you can and cannot do, you should be fine.
That being said, if you want to make a entirely set 3.5 character for the town, get in contact with me. AIM would be preferable, but email works as well.

hello
How does this town thingy actually work?
I mean, I've read the intro thing but I have no idea whats going on at the moment.

Freeform RP. Basicly you create a character and describe what they do. The only thing you don't decide is what happens to any PC you attack, help, talk to or otherwise interact with.

(wonders if this is the best place to enter the town for the first time)
A pair of Thri-Kreen one black and one dusty yellow appear in the distance over a hill. Both have shortshords of differing colours in sheathes on their belts and back and both have coloured runes all across their bodies.
Also strapped to them are various adventuring tools like rope, pitons and strange metatic devices.
The Thri-Kreen remain un-armoured but they do adorn various magical items. Strangly, the lighter coloured one has a teddy bear tucked in its belt.
The dark one looks over at the light one and begins to speak in a strange gutteral language.
"This be where we find him?" It asks as it picks a piece of grit from its Chiten.
"I think so. But we shall see," The light one replies.
The both walk into the town.
Is this an ok entrance?
I'm compensating for the fact that I might start a "storyline" at some point.

One more question, What is an appropriate character level.
Lvl 20 would usually be the limit but in this game, what is the regular?

Flabbicus
2006-11-01, 07:14 AM
There is no regular per-se. But somewhere between 15-25 is appropriate.

Murky_Pool

Yes, I think the general level is more towards 25 than 15, although you don't need a single level or even a rules compatible character.

If you have a concept that you can play then it can come into town. All welcome, the more the merrier

Thri-Kreen_DK
2006-11-01, 06:46 PM
I think then I'll settle for lvl 25, allowing my characters to be at the higher end of the scale.
Besides, I get access to the perfect multi-weapon fighting feat =).

Hi, I'm new to D&D RPing but I've been RPing since before I can remember, but never D&D >_<

Yeah basically I need help in creating a character and other junk and stuff...

Destro_Yersul
2006-11-10, 04:21 PM
Best thing to start is come up with a concept. Then flesh out the characters back story, and find a way fro them to arrive in town. If you've already RP'd, then we don't need to go over that. Biggest rule here is have fun. Second biggest is "No godmodding", but that's covered alsewhere. Oh, and welcome to the town.

Welcome!! Are you looking for a mentor, or just some start out help?

If you could please include what time zone you in, and what style of RPing you enjoy, we will see if we can find you the right person.

Acco Spoot

Well I formerly RP'd on Nationstates but got tired of the inconcistencies and continuity errors, so really i'm looking for something a little more rigid, I'm not great at huge posts, but i'm worse at short posts.

I'm in GMT and i'm not sure if I need a mentor, I mean it would be helpful to have one so it'd be a little easier to get into RPing and understanding what can and can't be done....

The Town isn't really very rigid. The rules are simple, don't control other's characters without permission and have fun. The suggested rules of play are in the stickied threads. The Town is freeform, stats aren't necessary for your character. The best place to start is in Trog's Tavern, engage someone else in conversation and go from there. The most active time for the Tavern is 5pm-11pm EST (which is -5 from GMT). It can be hard to get started so just be persistant. There are other players from the GMT timezone that you can talk to and get to know. Several possibilities are the Librarian, Ilev and Clover. Otherwise my character Gwen is in the Tavern now.

I have some questions now...

What's &quot?

Is there a limit on the amount of PC characters you can field? If so then what is it?

Is there any special mega complex ruleset on combat?

And lastly, is it recomended to post your character description in the Characters of the Town thread?

&quot is a glitch from the forum move. It used to be " but got changed somehow.

I don't think it was set, but 6 seems to be the max if you don't want to go crazy with keeping track of them...

No, you can use D&D rules if the other fighter agrees, or specific rules relating for the certain fight. Most people use free form.

Well... if you want to make a really long post regarding your character and elaborate on him/her then yes it is good. But its being overhauled right now and most people don't check it for updates.

Heya all,

I need some directions... I have some ideas for the character and post it to the characters thread soon. Also I pm'ed Ceika if she would be so kind to create me an avatar :-) But:

Where are you supposed to start? Or in other words: Is there a place where popping in for the first time is recommendable? I am not neither new to DND, nor to freeform, but I just have no clue which place to go first.

(( I am not requesting a mentor right now, I just need a "Go there first" from someone ;-) ))

The best place to appear is usually in Trog's Tavern. Go in, order a drink from the NPC Cosmo and start a conversation with someone.

Inari's Temple can also be a good starting point, as long as its not under attack, but the same warning can apply to Trog's.

2006-12-13, 12:35 PM
Im thinking Inaris might be attacked soon >.>

And I only seem to be where all the exciting stuff happens.

hmmmm....well, helping out during a fight can be a good way to introduce yourself or get into things.

Actually it was only the intro to the Ravenloft thing.

Meh. Anything works....Just, my character only talks when someone talks to him first. He's kinda hostile.

Atreyu the Masked LLama
2006-12-13, 08:16 PM
you'll just have to be in a place with an overly friendly critter then.

...<< Expect that critter to not want to talk to strangers anymore once he's done talking with my seriously messed up Tau.

Unless it's Destro, who really doesn't care. Want me to bring him in to talk to you?

I suppose joining one of the more battle focused storyline things might work. Good spots for some good RP.

Sorry mine's being a bit slow to get rolling. My stories are not generally known for their sedate nature.

But if you can stick with it, you will get to experince my trademark sadism, cliche-twists, multiple-wave battles, and strange events.

I'd like to be indoctrinated. Assign me a mentor I(AASA)P (if (and as soon as) possible).

Time Zone: Greenwich + 2 hours.

What Time I Am on GitP: Whenver I can be?

What time zone or what times are you usually on GitP, that would help in finding you a mentor. :-)

I'll be your mentor. Unfortunately, I have to get off my computer now, but sign on to MSN whenever you can and I'll get you started when I come back.

Just one question: How much of the wandering between buildings is supposed to be mentioned? And what thread is the edge of town? Well that was two thingies, sorry.

AmberVael
2006-12-21, 03:14 PM
Well, you are supposed to post in the streets thread when moving between buildings.
As for the edge of town, that would also be the streets thread.

Atreyu the Masked LLama
2006-12-21, 03:19 PM
Personally, I don't post in the streets thread unless something interesting is happening to my PC there. *shrugs* just a personal preference.

I suppose that depends on how informed you want to be. You could either read a few thousand pages of posts, or just dive in and catch up as you go. Me, I'd choose the latter. :smalltongue:

True dat, but there's plenty o' stuff that went down in the last few months that I for one would rather not read once, much less twice. Just sayin'.

2006-12-24, 10:07 PM
Well, it would be best to wait until there is more activity in the Town. Tonight is pretty dead. Wait until there are a few people at Trog's and go talk to them. That's one way.

El Jaspero, the Pirate King
2006-12-26, 09:52 PM
Trog's is certainly the easiest jumping-off point, though any of the other public areas that have fairly heavy traffic are good too. Hookah Hank's was quite the spot for a while, too.

*Raises hand* I'd just like to state that you'd definitely be on a lot more people's 'good' list if you didn't shorten words and used punctuation.

Just a suggestion, not trying to be mean. I don't really want to take an 'apprentice' right now, but I did want to help keep you from aggravating all of the grammar nuts here.

AmberVael
2007-01-01, 11:32 PM
Despite the efforts of the most renowned RPGologists and D20ists, we are unfortunately unable to identify 'what its deal' is.
What little is known is that it is varied in form, extremely addictive, and is a freeform roleplaying game.
For a more complete description, see the "Welcome to Town" thread.

2007-01-01, 11:34 PM

I've been on the boards here for a few months and now want to join the town, and have a question. Can we have pets or sidekicks? Mhy concept for a character so far is a mind flayer half-TBD (class TBD), and want a Gelatinous cube as a pet or sidekick. Or if I can find a way to pull it off, an intelligent gelatinous cube with a mind flayer sidekick.

Go ahead. Anything you want is possible here. I have several characters. One is a blatant copyright violation from the future, one is a trout obsessed lich who is more than a little crazy, and one is an anthropomorphic praying mantis who speaks really broken common. I also have a bunch of power hungry wizards who own a flying fortress. And those are just my characters! We're all about fun here, so welcome to the Town.

I don't make fun of you guys since having only been in the Town for a couple of months I already have 6 characters and a possible secret alt account.

I have, as well. Mainly because I don't have rapid-fire attention span to jump between two accounts, but hey, it still counts for something, right?
