    Default Sahuagin Investigation OoC Thread

    Alright people, let's try this again. I'd like you to meet Richard Nordenstein, your private investigator. He's from way the hell up north in the Gnomelands of Boreas, believe me he has VERY good reason to be way the hell down here. The image isn't quite what I wanted, I had intended to make his portrait the album art from Guitar Gangsters & Cadillac Blood, but I couldn't find a version without the text. Still, it works. Investigator, big handgun, cigarette, telephone's a bit out of place but whatever.

    He isn't meant to be much in combat. He honestly really won't be. He carries a big handgun, meant to test out my weapon calibre rule, but he doesn't have very good stats and otherwise he only has a knife. His outfit also isn't so great in terms of protection, though that's the case for everybody here.

    Here is Fiona Firefingers.

    And also Kiwi, her cat familiar.

    Now that that copy pasta is out of the way, hope this thread goes smoothly without a bunch of real world crap ruining it. Maybe we can even get a copy of everyone's sheets up near the top!

    I'd suggest putting a copy of your house rules and setting info in the OP as well. Oh, also. The investigator's sheet is not public.

    And here I thought linking to it would bypass that issue. Whatever, fixed it.

    Oh, I see his first name. Reminds me of Dikk Tracy. Obviously misspelled to get past the filter.

    Your other links are broken now. Ironically, it literally captured the abbreviated url with ellipses as the url, and it's not actually a valid url.

    At the very least, he'll be useful as an investigator and not totally useless in combat (though not exactly competent, either).

    Obviously misspelled to get past the filter.
    Not that we should have to. I've said it before, and I will stand by it: Censorship is ALWAYS wrong.

    Is there NO END to the incompetent programming of this site?

    I hate it when this happens. But as the last person to have posted in the IC thread, I can confidently say I would be waiting on one of you two, and you had damn well not be waiting on me.

    Yeah, let's um... wait for a response from Kish. IC and/or OOC....

    I was going to honor them anyway, but I must say that Commanding Gaze really should have a DC of 8. After all, it should be 10 + 1/2 Hit Dice + Charisma. Maybe a +2 circumstance bonus from purring.

    Sure, if you really want to roll, make it a DC 8. No purring yet, till she gets some loving.

    Alright. Heck, you could probably finagle Fucienne into the picture too if you really wanted.

    I think it's time we wait and see if Kish would like to add anything, again. I need to go out and run some errands right now anyway.

    You want me to put the little girl with the pirates? Yar-har, fiddle dee dee...

    Right. We're about to eat, this is Kish's last chance to contribute at dinner. Once the food arrives, we're skipping to the departure so we don't roleplay chewing for six posts.

    Also, FYI: That means a broadside uses twenty guns that deal 28d6 damage. This frigate also has a DR 40 and 650hp. Notably, a non-ironclad ship would also have 650hp, but only a DR 20. Ironclads are BEASTLY vessels, there's not much that's a threat to a ship like that.

    Wait, pirates? Are we going to be sailing with good pirates, or just Team A pirates and Team B pirates are gunning for us?

    Sorry, had to 1-up you.

    Wait, pirates?

    Worse. They're privateers. I did say they were privateers for the crown until Ihsan bought out their contract.

    Are we going to be sailing with good pirates, or just Team A pirates and Team B pirates are gunning for us?
    And they are "DO NOT **** with them unless you like being shot and thrown into the ocean" kinds of pirates. They are brutal, efficient naval contractors in it for the money, who blast twenty burning cannons into their foes and jack all their **** under permission more than orders, for queen and ****ing country. It might be a good idea to remember that they are barely contained military monsters when speaking to then.

    They'd shrug off our massive guns with their DR 60 and 1300hp. Ironclads are absolute game-changers. Thankfully, only the navy can afford an ironclad bigger than a frigate.

    19th century people, the time where tech shifted so rapidly being a little behind made you uber-****ed. Military conflicts were so decidedly not fair we had to start questioning if being stronger was adequate justification for the horrific **** we were doing. Add on militaries that industrialize high-end PC ****ery, and we get some VERY short wars and utter military brutality like the world has never seen. This is a terrifying setting where the military can annihilate whatever they damn well please on a whim.

    Just be glad nuclear weapons are over half a century off. Aelsif's pretty ****ed for a LOT of reasons, it doesn't need nukes.
