    Default Yours For The Taking [D&D 3.5] (OOC)

    Now for the lovely task of deciding who the three alternates are. Anyone want to volunteer?

    Edit: Everyone who has posted one this page, as of this edit, is in the game not as an alternative. Hopefully I can run this as two parties, if not, we'll deal with that when it comes.

    I'd rather not. Adding this thread to my list of OOC subscriptions.

    ---

    Edit: Saying more stuff: I've got no problems being an alternate. I'd just rather be in the group from the start than be one of them.

    Subscribed, and I don't mind being on the alternate list, I suppose. Eric is pretty easy to side and interject from anywhere.

    Medic!: Well if it came down to me deciding, you wouldn't be one, because I think you were first to submit a sheet. But I'm not gonna stop you from volunteering.

    Little info on alternates in this game: You will still be able to play, but usually you won't be adventuring with the party. Usually you won't be adventuring at all, but you can still roleplay. There are times when the alternates' paths' will cross with the others though, and those a situations where you can play outside of just roleplay. One example will be in the beginning. The alternates will be in the jails as well.

    I'd really like to play, but I am in a couple other games at the moment, so I guess I could be an alternate if that would work out best for everyone.

    As an alternate, would I still be allowed to come up with details of the world and make-up NPCs and stuff like that?

    I'll try it, but if it becomes too much I'll have to either get another DM or cut it back to one party. We'll start after Essence gets his sheet up and we get a few questions answered.

    Fudging dice rolls, yay or nay? Personally I don't like fudging them, but I also don't want to put you up against something you can't beat by mistake.

    Fractional saves and BAB? I'm indifferent, now that I know how they work.

    Also, does anyone but Essence have any character work left to do? Whether it's crunch or fluff.

    Lastly, does anyone have any questions at all for me?

    Fudging: In extreme cases to save us early on, I am fine with it.

    Fractional: Sure. I probably won't end up using it since I tend to stick to 1 class.

    Next question: I don't believe I do.

    Other: For crafting, can I do weekly checks and divide by 7 to get the daily amount. If I don't, I get a tenth of what I could make normally in a week instead of a seventh.

    Fudging: If it makes the story better then sure but only sparingly.

    Fractional: What Linguz said

    Extra stuff: If anyone wants to tie character histories together then sure, otherwise nope.

    Questions: I can't think of anything yet.

    Yeah, I agree with everyone else. It all sounds good to me.

    Fudging: I don't mind fudging if it's to make the story better, but I also don't mind dying if that's what the dice have in store for me.

    Fractional: I don't see any cons to allowing this, so I think we might as well just go for it.

    Character work: I think I'm set, though just to warn everyone, Abaddon's backstory may or may not actually be true.

    Questions: All I can think of is that, if you do split the party, how do you plan on splitting us?

    Machuchang: One you all escape and reach (insert place of safety here), I'll nudge you guys OOC to split but I'm not sure exactly how. Maybe it would be good to leave it up to you eight to decide a reason. Just try to balance the parties, 4 and 4, and don't have the wizard and sorceress or barbarian and soulcrafter together.

    Fudge) I'm not usually a fan of fudge for the sake of fudge, but I've played long enough on both sides to have experienced the end result of the DM rolling very well or poorly. Party once took no damage from the BBEG and his posse. Didn't roll above a 10 to hit the whole encounter.

    Fractional) If we use them, I might multiclass a bit. If not, oh no, more Factotum levels, I hate having all skills as class skills and some magic. And awesome class features.

    Additional Work) None left.

    Questions) Nope.

    On fudging: I'd rather not know, either way, and neither one bothers me. It's all about the story, whether it's a story made a hair more epic or a hair more believable despite the dice, or a story of "the dice never lie." Some of my most enjoyable D&D moments were pure dice (both with a character dying and with a half-orc fighter who thinks he's a paladin beseeching heironeous for aid while being grappled by a vampire, down to 1 con, and rolling a natural 20 on his attack roll with a wooden stake =D )

    On fractionals, I'm also indifferent. It's great for multi-classers...unless the adventure really dictates different class levels for Eric from an RP standpoint, he'll be taking straight barbarian since Berserker Strength relies on (barbarian levels x5) current hp as a trigger method.

    Fractionals are in, fudging will be left... To your imagination

    I believe we have two hopefuls, so when one submits his/her sheet we'll start

    Edit: Linguz: I'm very inexperienced when it comes to the intricacies of crafting, so I don't see how that would be much of an issue dividing by 7. Unless someone wants to speak up on their qualms against it (Why would they, it seems to only help the party?) go for it

    I think I'm one of the "hopefuls," but if I had my druthers, I wouldn't be an alt. This is my first PBP game =) But I can be an alt if necessary.

    Also, Sleight of Hand rolls to see if I sneak my dagger and thieves' tools into prison with me.

    Only one that's been bothering me is that we don't know anything about the living conditions within the prison. Are we spending all our time shackled (Mink obviously isn't), are we free to wander around? What is the prison authorities opinions of us?

    My own thoughts are that as Amala's an obediant individual with decent social skills who's in on charges not related to violence or predatory criminality, she's probably regarded as pretty harmless and free to move within the place.

    She'd probably know Mink (sorry I haven't been studying the other character sheets as much as I should. Myth-weavers can simply take forever to load on my connection), but they probably would not be close friends. Amala would probably be fairly condescending to her, but that's got more to do with Amala's depressed state of mind right now than anything wrong with Mink.

    ((EDIT: Just managed to get Erik's sheet open, looks like our first priority is to spring him))

    Isidora, led by the guards into the prison, walks with her head high and spine straight - more fit to be stepping onto a stage than into a cell. Her demeanor changes, however, as the guard searches her and finds her dagger and lock picks. "Well, so much for that fabulously brilliant plan..." she mutters, a somewhat dejected look creeping into her eye.

    On the prison: The prison is on the eastern side of town, fairly close to the docks. At first it appears to be a small building, barely bigger than a shack, but it sits on a much wider foundation. Upon entering, there are a few chairs, a chandelier, and a desk that the jailer usually sits at. To the right of the desk, there is a door that leads down into the dungeon (a dungeon in a D&D game? Ha!). After descending the steps, two cells will be on the left, and three on the right. Eventually the corridor turns left, revealing five more cells. Each cell but the first two have barred windows, capable of seeing someone's feet if they're right next to it. Each cell has two mattresses and a bucket for doing "unmentionable things" but the first two on the left. The two on the left are barren, reserved for the more dangerous criminals. Inside the criminal stands (or lays) hands and feet shackled and a chain linking them.

    All of you are close enough to hear each other, but not all of you can see each other. You don't have shackles (save Erik, he's in one of the barren cells) but you must remain in your cell. Twice daily a guard will come to gather the buckets and leave food (The barren cells don't get the privilege of having a bucket 24/7).

    Generally, only one guard and the jailer occupy the prison at the same time. The guards hate the prison job, they're assigned to it weekly, but usually are nice or either disregard you. The jailer, on the other hand, takes pleasure in taunting the prisoners and making their lives a hell, but he's usually up top doing paper work. He is an old soldier, and has a lot of anger. Some prisoners think it may be because he lost his right hand in a war. He appears tough and hard at first, he beats the more criminally inclined prisoners on occasion, but is usually revealed to be a coward because he only raises his hand if they're shackled. Also, the pooch is nice, but too stupid to learn fetch.

    Right now, the prison is very crowded. With a maximum capacity of eighteen, sixteen are housed.

    ElfiKay: Guard's other search roll: (1d20+4)[6]

    Everyone, feel free to link backstories in any way. I will soon be posting information about the world your average commoner would know, and if there's anything else you think your character would know about the world, tell me.

    Edit: ElfiKay: I forgot I had to roll twice for both items (I guess I have to roll twice?) you can choose which one didn't get discovered and repost accordingly, we'll forget the first one ever happened
