This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Opa, sorry for the silence. An overzealous DWP genius chopped through the fiber optic line last Thursday and just got internet back today. I will post at least once this weekend.

The Bay Area skies are scary. Try not to breathe for a week or two.

Not rude at all, arcanuum!  :)  The more the merrier! And considering a cosmopolitan caravanserai hangar is currently emptying out from a literal disco inferno, now might be one of the best times to hop in!


We're using Talislanta 2e, and currently in the Wastelands (Western section, centered around The Barrens at the moment). The party is currently making a break from the chaos they instigated -- out of the frying pan and into the fire already -- so we can slip you right in.  ;D  Make a PC soon and let's stow you away on a madcap cruise into post-apoc fantasy!

Sorry, the Wilderlands of Zaran, center of the continent. Yes, the Desert Kingdoms, but off into the hinterlands. Roughly between Seven Kingdoms and the Desert Kingdoms.

Okay I am going to play a Gao Sea Rogue who is a Captain without a crew or a boat. Formerly the Captain of the Crimson Hawk, Nok Parflee lost his crew and his ship to the dreaded Demon Reavers. I will share more later and post Nok as well.

Sounds good, arcanuum!  :)  We could always use a captain who is relearning Navigation/Piloting for Dracartan Land Ships during on-the-job training! Don't change a thing: you'll still 1/2 your Nav/Piot rolls but I'll just dampen the crit failures a tad.  8)  This way I'll have the motley-est of crews to GM!

Quick bookkeeping question: Would you ever so mind if I post up your simplified PC data in the IC's first post? That way it won't be lost in the sea of posts forthcoming, just in case for easy GM and fellow PC reference (such as name, size, look, dress, etc.). :)

Not at all. Though would you like me to write up the NPC descriptions for my character like Shark did?

 :)  Not necessary, but I won't get in the way of your creativity! Gonna 'copy pasta' your PC and Snowman's PC now.

edit: Well, poop. :( I cannot edit that post anymore. Seems like that feature was lost in the transition of this new board software.

OK, I guess you'll have to post your PC within the IC topic. Give it a few days just in case we are at a page break for some people. And welcome to the show!  8)
