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.

I'm fine with #1 or #2. In my experience, alignment isn't all that intrusive, even with the core rules.

Of course I never had to play with someone for whom the paladin's detect evil feature is a targetting radar; and it doesn't bother me to give most nameless NPCs a faint evil aura when the paladin looks around.

Anyway, my character is neutral and a druid, so alignment will mostly be irrelevant to him regardless of the way that is chosen.

Have we lost Elidia?

Elidia- if you're out there, please let me know!

Hey - work just kicked me in the proverbail nuts, and I'm going to have to push this back until Wednesday. That'll also give everyone a chance to finish up characters sheets and Elidia a chance to check in.

I'll keep you all posted.


EDIT: Correction. Life just kicked me in the nuts. Hard. Today my son decided that cough medicine was the new Gatorade, or something, and tried to drink a bottle of Children's Motrin. Child proof caps my ass. He's alright (turns out he didn;t get enough to really hurt himself) but he scared his mother and I 95% to death.

Needless to say, I'm not doing anything tonight expect holding my children. I hope you understand.

I'm partial to #3, myself.  I can live with any of the options.

Given what you've just been through, take all the time you need. I'm glad to hear that your child will be okay; you've earned a freak out.

Augh - life just decided to pick up out of nowhere. I'm going to have to drop out. Sorry. :(

That sucks, but. . .

Enkhidu, do you think Tleilaxu would want to play a monk?  

Is he first on the waiting list?

If not a monk, some kind of healer might be good--we lost our paladin earlier.

When do we create our alt-ids?

tlei - please PM me (if you can), or simply let us know (in this thread) if you'd like to join. Elidia dropping out leaves us with an opening for which you are first alternate. We'll be beginning play sometime today, but I'm confident we can work you in fairly well. In the meantime, we've got a quintet of PCs with well tied together backgrounds that we'll be starting with.

As for alts, that's a question better suited for an admin. I don't see it being an issue, though (at least for me!).


And on a final note, my next post in this thread will be a link to the starting post of the PbP. See you soon!

The characters of the players that are still there are:
  • Megamieuwsel: Ramirez da Silva, human rogue/fighter
  • Roudi: Julian Fairhair, human bard
  • Ottomsoh the Elderly: Ashen Leaves, goblin druid
  • willpax: Ferro da Silva, human rogue/sorcerer
  • the ultimate nullifier: Xamot the Strange, human fighter/wizard
The characters of the players who won't play were:
  • Mirth: ?, goblin cleric or paladin
  • Elidia: ?, human monk
With this in mind, we have no real healers (a druid and a bard only) and no full-on tank, so a cleric or a paladin would be a nice complement.

It has begun:

tlei - read through this thread again to get a feel for the setting. You all should be able to hash out what sort of role you want to play amongst yourselves - I have no preference.
