    Oh, whoops!

    Sorry, I already posted.

    Somewhat related, I have a hard time actually playing low charisma characters. >< I think sometimes the answer is simply to have it such that while my words may be polite, my inflection or delivery (or wild-haired Nuk appearance) just makes it that much less impactful.

    For me, I try to think about my other attributes. My high Int, low Cha characters tend to be acerbic, biting or impatient with those around them. Or they are extremely well spoken, but oblivious to those around them. For lower Int low Cha ones, (especially from more Warrior or primitive cultures) I go with matter-of-fact, no holds bared. ďYou are an excellent warrior, but why do you smell like yak piss?Ē ďYou do magic? I thought you were just frail and weak. Good to know.Ē

    YMMV of course ...

    A quick note on languages for the newcomers, as I skim the sheets:

    • Heltinne & WTW - you have Common noted as a language. FWIW this is refluffed as "NÝrsk" in the Northlands. Note this excludes reading/ writing NÝrsk which is a second language slot of it's own (Runic). Common does exist as a separate language in it's own right but is the trade tongue of the southlands and not commonly used in this campaign setting.
    • Heltinne - I think you still get Celestial as a bonus language since you're aasimar?
    • Knorron - since you have Int 12 I think you have an extra language slot to spend. Other than the usual monster languages, relevant campaign options include Runic (written NÝrsk), AndÝvan (long-dead human inhabitants of the land), or Seagestrelander (barbarian tribes of the near south-west). If you choose a monster language ask & I'll tell you if it will be relevant or not.

    Iíve updated to the NÝrsk (reading only). And because Heltinne is a Scion of Humanity, she lost the celestial language. As RÝb ZÝmbie might say, sheís more human than human ..

    OK, I'll go with
    Seagestrelander then, under the assumption Knorron would have dealt with them more often than long-dead inhabitants. :)

    Yeah that works well. Thralls (slaves) are most often Seagestrelanders, and there's also a bit of trade with the tribes of Seagestreland, so interaction is very common.

    Hi all,

    My apologies for my lack of posting. For whatever reason, I have been struggling mightily to get engaged and come up with a suitable post, and I really canít explain why.

    I like my character concept. I like the others characters. I like the setting. The posts are very well written and interesting. All of the players seem like the sort of folks I enjoy gaming with. And yet Iím coming up dry here. Itís really perplexing.

    I think it might be best for me to bow out now, rather than try to muddle through it, so that you can offer the slot to someone else if you choose. I REALLY hate bailing on a gameóI think Iíve only ever dropped one game before, and to be fair it was a terrible gameóbut Iíd rather do it now than after my character gets well established and you all have to figure a way to drop and replace.

    Truly sorry about this. As I said, the game looks great, which is what makes this hard to explain. Hope you all enjoy it, and I hope to cross paths with you again in the future.

    Cheers,
    Merc

    Well, it sucks when you canít get your mojo rolling on a game ... I think weíre probably all patient enough to work through that with ya, but totally understand the choices of time and commitment. Whatever your decision, happy gaming!

    As Starbin says, we're happy to give you a bit of time if you would like it. I find a bit of action (ie combat) always helps when the interactions are stalling and we haven't really done anything much yet.

    But equally, if you want to bail out no hard feelings. If you change your mind and want to stick with it then let me know in the next ~24 hours.

    Hey,

    Ghostfoot has asked me to fill the empty spot. As I first will need to read myself into the story (see where you are) and then figure out where I'm supposed to be (with you, on the way as 'the cavalry' if needed, or simply at home blissfully unaware), I'll probably not post in the IC for now.

    Also I'll be going on holiday on Saturday and while I have WiFi (at least, two of the three locations have it for sure, the third maybe), I'll be slow the coming two weeks.

    I think the +1 Andovan Dagger is something that I'll pass along to someone else who was present for the fight. Either Skorri or Signy seem like good candidates? Thoughts?

    Also, this amber with moth in it is odd.

    I'm thinking Skorri or Signy as well, not something the giantess would use.

    Yes, welcome farothel! Look forward to you joining when you're ready.

    Give the dagger to Skorri I reckon. With this many PC's I'll dial Signy down as more of a utility/ non-combat build so don't expect her to get too close to the action

    I can join at any time, but where do you want my character? Is he with the party, or at the jarl's mansion, or somewhere else?

    You are all welcome to join the game as part of Jarl Henrikson's recently arrived evac-team if you wish. If that doesn't suit for some reason then you can join shortly thereafter. We'll be wrapping up this section and on to the next.

    Also, I'll be giving you a bit more wealth shortly too, so if starting equipment has been a problem there's assistance coming soon.

    May the Norns favour you as you face your wyrd!

    Okay, I'll read the full IC tomorrow and do a first post (if for nothing else than to find the topic back more easily thanks to the 'I posted there' check mark).

    EDIT: as youngest and probably least experienced member of the warband, I assume that it would be Bjorn's task to lead the found horses. So if anybody wants to say something to him while he gives back the reins of the horses, they can do so.

    EDIT2: link to my character sheet, in case it's needed until ghostfoot puts it into the first post (if still needed if this episode is finished).

    Yes! Up to you how in depth you want to go though. You can hand wave it with a one liner if youíd prefer. I figured since you have a skald in the ranks Iíd give you the option :-)

    My apologies to all - I've been taken over by real life lately, so I need to do a lot of catch up. I'll go over the IC & OOC posts later today, and try to post something as soon as I can.

    no problem for me. I'll be spending most of my day stuck in a metal tube without internet access anyway (as well as a couple of hours on airport WiFi if I bother with it), so take your time.

    Just a couple of minor tweaks for Bjorn:

    • Could you add a portrait to the sheet when you get a moment please
    • Common is not a free language in this game, so with +1 Int you'll get Nordic & either Runic or Common (not both).

    I'll do those tweaks to Bjorn's character sheet when I come back from holiday, as I don't have all my stuff with me (I already have a picture, I just can't get it to show on the site). I doubt it's that urgent.

    Would a Masterwork Composite Longbow (+3) be available?

    If not, then DDW will offer his reward to another of the group (our giantess perhaps) stating that the Greatsword is more than reward enough for the day's venture.
