    Default 3.5 Political Adventure OOC

    Ok, so here is the OOC thread.

    Choose a colour. Add yourself to the table.

    ONLY POST SOMETHING IF IT IS COMPLETE. Make sure all your gear is done, all skills/feats/magical doo-dah etc.

    thanks all for the encouragement and advise; this whole forum posting thing still has me feeling a bit like a shy six-year old...everything is so new...


    @Starbin hope you don't mind me stealing you table and speaking info...This is the first table I've made, and I had no idea, so I quoted you (how do I create the cell separation lines? I had to copy/paste each time I needed one... also, I like the Draco-lich - Celestial Titan collision idea...I'll let al'Lan know if it needs using

    @Maliana - cell separator symbol seems to be pipe, which is shift+\ on most keyboards (the \ that is NOT under the question mark, usually just above or below enter key).

    (I do IT work, and that's how I always describe that key, as the backslash is needed sometimes for domain\username logons, and the forward slash does not work, and the right key is actually found in different places on different keyboards (laptops especially)).

    Nope Suddo, that's fine. Though it would be worth saying whether he comes on specific missions or not (stealth, adventure, social call).

    Mainly while in town, so social. Maybe on an adventure, though assume so unless I say so, specifically. Beyond that he'll just hang out in my Inn room that I pre-paid for. Never for stealth.

    Unless you have other plans, I'd like to be hanging out with Phaedrus.
    - I don't like to be alone
    - He's my oldest friend (since I'm afraid to contact my family)
    - I help out his rogue guild friends regularly

    I leave it entirely to Maliana how/if we know each other (you can even declare my family to be the racist nobles, although I would prefer that be somebody else).

    Is Kalthen not going to sign up?

    Phaedrus and Selena hanging out would be fine, the question is the time of day. If it is night it is more likely, but if it is daytime, I will likely be rendering services in the market. But as I said, I can't place myself until we have a time of day.

    I imagine that Selena and Malaina would get along if not be friends; she seems to have some similar lost feelings...though that may be my thought because I ooc can relate to some of what she's feeling... I'd say it would make for a difficult party if your family is the one I am disgruntle against...

    also, thanks for the tech help, I'll probably need more of that type of assistance in the not too distant future.

    Cool, don't forget to subscribe to the new in character thread Al'Lan made:
    http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=237456

    Looks like gameplay starts with you searching out Phaedrus (maybe his market is closed for the parade so he's hanging at the library). I'm new to PbP though, so I'm not sure exactly how we are all supposed to specify where we start and what we're doing.

    al'Lan; is Archa a title? I was going to use it as such, but reworded because I wasn't sure if that was correct...

    Yep Archa is just the title of the elected leader (elected by the nobility of course).

    Phaedrus doesn't have to start at the library. Just a suggestion for where Malaina would start looking.

    Anyone can place themselves anywhere.

    Its about 10am ish IC.

    Phaedrus- language thing sounds fun- go for it.

    The country of Arvan is really not a country, but a collection of human cities with separate rulers and ruling bodies, tied together by bonds of allegiance to join forces should they be threatened by their neighbours. This united strength has led to peace for long years, but a time of chaos approaches...

    In Cleyarna (a human city to the south of Arvan) the aged Archa Leane is losing her grip on power, and with her House too weak to establish a successor those hungry for power are circling.

    The Halfling country is at war, a successful revolution has led to two sides with powerful generals waging bloody war and thousands joining the fight every week, and the violence threatens to spread.

    The elves who had once retreated from the world have appeared once more, in small bands appearing at random throughout the country, and many other things once lost are returning...
    I'm pasting this here so I don't have to find the recruitment thread to remember the city or country's name.

    Also what season? Is it warm or cold? I don't want to say the warm sun of the early day when it is normally cloudy and cold.

    Al'Lan - As I mentioned in my possible plans for the morning, I've used attraction to help the girls I room with find good new customers (just to give them a solid chance to talk to passerby they like the looks of, and see if they are open to becoming clients).

    I plan to also take Read Thoughts through my fifth level bonus feat, can I fluff my background as having used my rudimentary early fumblings with this ability (and my sense motive skill) to help spot troublesome clients for my roommates? (I just can't make the power work in any other circumstance yet).

    Since I have nothing to add IC, I want to list that my "prepared spell" today was going to be shield, but I think that I will prepare Scholar's touch (from RoD) instead, since I was planning on spending the day in the library. Basically it lets me speed read to the Nth degree (as in an entire book every 6 seconds, for up to rounds/level).

    Steven Brusts 3 musketeer's books had a squire that brought a stool everywhere so he could sit down, and hit several important people with said stool. Can't find his name though.

    Geoffrey or Chaucer would be my suggestions (not both, because that would silly). The word squire alone reminds me of one of my favorite cards from MTG.

    Is there any map for the city? I don't expect you to make one because I'm asking...but if it exists I'd love to look at it...the fantasy reader in me wants to flip to the cover and reference the different parts of the city to plan routes to here and there...

    Also, did we have a posting expectancy??? I'm going to try for early morning, and evening posts, but I don't want to hold people up if I can't make a post especially during anything that's init. based... I can't always rely on this internet connection.

    Not got a map yet, and when I do it will be a hand sketched map, sorry. In my head the library is central ish, but off to the South West. The slummy bits are directly South. Then the is just north of you and the Castello and surroundings are halfway between the centre and the Eastern gate.

    Posting rate is up to you. Normally posting is high at the beginning and goes down, but I'd like to keep it at a minimum of 1/day. Obviously morning and evening sounds solid but with timezones it doesn't matter so much. I'm quite flexible and can leave my computer connected so it's easy for me to quickly check if there is something that needs replying to.

    I am of similar opinion on the map, even if it is super basic, simply to have some reference to where I am (North, South, East, West of other areas and a vague sense of distance). But I do agree, you don't need to make one simply to ease my mind, but if you have one I am curious.

    Also, I want to apologize, I can't seem to remember to color my speaking consistently (I do go back and do it if I realize I forgot). Hopefully, that will eventually become a habit eventually.

    Latency is the big killer, when folks have to leave their PCs for long periods of time. If you know you are going to have to do that, try to post a "plans if" message with enough info to let your character run autopilot for a couple rounds.

    (I'll be doing one in a bit, so you can see what I mean).

    PS - Selena likes to give short nicknames to people (as she just called Phaedrus Fade). If this ticks your character off let me know so I can make sure to avoid it (at least when she wants something from you), and if you have a preference, let me know.

    I was thinking:
    Fade for Phaedrus
    Mal, alley, or anna for Malianna
    Cal or winky for the elf
    Rus for the red mage we'll soon see

    PPS - Did we ever get approval from Kalthen for the big brother of Phaedrus who just went merchanting with Glanror and Aquarius tie in?

    Me and Krennel are hammering that out - basically trying to figure out how the family life would have worked.

    As far as nicknames go, the more casual you are with Phaedrus, the more casual he will be back (i.e. He is probably going to use sir and madam a lot (or some equivalent), but calling him a nickname is permission for him to think of one for you.
