    Default The Society for the Exploration of the Unexplained (CoC 7th)

    The Society for the Exploration of the Unexplained
    Introduction
    The Society for the Exploration of the Unexplained (SEU), an informal, extra-curricular society based at Miskatonic University in Arkham. The society was founded in 1889 by a group of professors and students who had a mutual interest in unexplained phenomena. The SEU has gained some minor public notoriety through their assistance in a number of police investigations that came to the attention of the press. The members of the society are
    often sought out by the authorities, as well as private individuals, who are in need of help with all manner of strange mysteries.
    Nowadays, the SEU meets once a month in a private reading room of the university’s library, where tales of exploits are shared and current mysteries conjectured. When an interesting case is presented, the leaders of the SEU choose the most suitable investigators from among its members to tackle the mystery.

    Are You Interested?
    I see that you are interested in exploring what cannot be explained. After all, why else would you have picked up this pamphlet? Well, fear not, luckily for you our extracurricular club is always seeking new members, no matter if they attend Miskatonic or not. Now, you may join our membership by applying here!

    Rules of the Society
    (1) Ticking should be allowed more often than it is so thus...
    (1a) If one has a Bonus Die to the roll and succeeds they may tick that skill regardless
    (1b) If one uses Luck to succeed on a skill, they may also tick said skill
    (2) If one searches for a specific article or piece of information in an organized area and names a specific year (or some other decently short time span) in which they focus their search, they may have a Bonus Die. It is also possible they may automatically succeed depending on the size and state of organization of whatever you're searching. Of course, if there is no information there, they they simply wasted their time.
    (3) Generally speaking, unless someone is on a serious time crunch. A Pushed roll does not need to be made in a Library or other research area, as instead it can simply be attempted again after a certain amount of time has passed.
    (4) There is no "Help" action. Your assistance qualifies as you rolling a die to see if you succeed.
    (4a) With that said, if you have an NPC assisting you, they grant you, and all others whom they're helping, a Bonus Die for their assistance. The reasoning behind this is that I'd rather have you all making rolls and succeeding than me.
    (4b) However, you may choose to utilize an NPC's statistics in place of yours when that would be possible, providing them with a Bonus Die (for example, using their stats for a library use roll instead of your own).
    (5) Every time that your assets would go up a Credit Rating, you do go up a Credit Rating. Note that this makes it incredibly hard to switch brackets, so more often than not something impactful needs to happen in that case. This may not be applicable depending on what scenarios you've done.

    I'm generally free after 2:00 on weekdays, except Wednesdays, where I have a class at 4:40. Weekends are almost entirely free.

    Hi! My schedule is packed, but flexible. So like anytime Mon-Sat between 10am and 9pm Pacific can usually work, as long as I get at least a week’s heads-up. Sundays early afternoons could be doable as well, again with advance notice.

    Sorry, should've clarified, I meant to post, not like an actual session. I'm trying to get groups together of people who have good posting times so that way one doesn't have to wait for people on the opposite end of the world to post and the game slows down to a crawl.

    Ah! Yeah then usually (roughly) 10am-4pm PT, and then sometimes (but not consistently) 9pm-10:30pm (ish)

    I should be free most days at most times, the only problem is my schedule is pretty erratic so I can't really give more specifics than that unfortunately. Though I could add that I live in the eastern timezone, and therefor am awake and asleep at (roughly) appropriate times for that.

    I think I'm active at about the same times as Zene. And possibly other overlaps, on days I'm off.

    Hm. Should we dive into the new OOC and IC threads?

    Well, Zene still has a little bit to complete, but I'm ok if you read up on the threads (maybe wait to respond until they're good to go [even though yes, the first part is solo]).

    Is it just the OOC I need to wrap up? I should be able to make some progress on that tomorrow.

    I think whatever question he asked you. Plus rolling for improvements on your skills.

    Speaking of which, kind of odd your sheet was linked, even though I think it's still waiting for the skill improvements.

    It's done. The improvements have been added. Don't worry too much, I can take care of such things . Also, I don't want to take up too much space on this thread when it's really supposed to be a discussion of what times everyone is available so I can create the most effective groups.
