(Credit to TalonRazor for his use of color coding in PbP)
Any narrative or dialogue is to go in the thread proper. You do not need to color-code your dialogue, but please use either quotations or italics to denote speech. I suggest quotations, with each piece of dialogue on its own line. All actions will be posted in a spoiler at the end of your post.
Your actions will be posted in DARK ORANGE
text on their own line. You must specify each action and briefly what it entails.
Your rolls will be posted in RED
text on their own line. You must show all situational modifiers, but you do not need to label them. For example, if you have +2 to hit on the attack because of your current positioning, you will show the +2. You do not need to list modifiers that are standard to your character, such as a STR modifier, etc. You must also link your rolls to Invisible Castle. These rolls will use the campaign tag PAKOTS. Please try your best to be consistent with your account, character, and campaign labeling on Invisible Castle. Linking your rolls is made very simple by IC. After you roll, just copy and paste the "BBCODE" link into the template.
Lastly, you will post the player
who is up next in GREEN
and using the @ prefix. This will send that player a notification that he/she can take a turn. For players with a space in their forum name, enclose the name in quotes. So @x"Mary
Poppins" becomes @Mary Poppins
when you remove the x.
This may seem like needless extra work, but it will go a long, long way to making this PbP easier to read and follow for both those playing and those following along. And having it saved somewhere as a template will make it much easier for you.
You get this:
Standard Action: Basic Melee Attack Move Action: Run from J12 to A12
Attack Roll: 1d20+5+1=22 Damage Roll: 1d6+5=8, 1d6+3=8
