    Is everyone okay with starting this with the party character creation tomorrow evening at 7 or 8 PM?

    That would be in roughly 26 to 27 hours from this post.

    Perfect! See you at 8 tonight. I'll send a PM an hour before it starts.

  • CapfalconCapfalcon Tunnel Snakes Rule Capital WastelandRegistered User regular
    I just realized I don't know what channel we're using. I suppose that's going to be in the PM, correct?

  • 21stCentury21stCentury A lovely pixel artist and gamecrafter [They/Them]Registered User regular
    Yep, all will be revealed in due time.

    Sorry again for the incomplete character creation session, but at least we got all the personae chosen.

    To recap, you each get 4 powers, 1 d10, 2 d8 and 1 d6. Plus 3 SFX, the Persona limit that's explained in the OP and any additional limit you want to add. For example, an elemental weakness works.

    Additionally, we didn't get to the Milestones, everyone needs two sets of milestones.

    While we're at it, posting a short background and appearance paragraph as well as an explanation of the powers would probably be a good idea.

    i'll also post the char sheets as i have them tomorrow on Obsidian Portal, as well as add some background info. For now, however, i will go to bed.

    You have until next week to get everything ready, i believe that should be enough time... i'll be here to help, of course, as will the others. It should work out fine, right?

    Here's what I got for good ol' Gil.

    Figure Shadow/Murder related milestones are going to be part of the events, so I'm trying to think of a good second milestone.

    With Psych and being a baseball player, you might end up being the party's face in many moments. Maybe have a set of milestones about getting info through psych rolls, getting new allies, etc.?

    Are shadow hunting robot girls on the table?

    I honestly think the robot girls are silly and don't fit at all in the setting.

    How about shadow fighting dogs? And Teddy?

    Because Teddy is the best.

    Those are also rather silly. The tone is going to be darker, so silly stuff might not fit in very well.

    Though i must agree that Teddie is very entertaining a character.

    These characters can be played seriously, even if they're a bit fantastic. Think of Data from Star Trek: TNG, David from Prometheus, or the innumerable white-blooded androids of the Aliens franchise. And it's an apparent point-of-interest to Igor, proprietor of the Velvet Room.

    The job of these characters is to give off sinister vibes while contemplating existential stuff. Also, they prefer the term "artificial persons," thank you very much.



    I will have your man-babies if you play one of these.

    Also:

    hmm, man-babies are tempting, but... I already made my position clear. Robot Schoolgirls, Magical dogs and cute mascots aren't on the menu.

  • EgosEgos Registered User regular
    in terms of milestones.

    do we already know about shadows, the dark hour, etc?

    No, and i'd prefer if the first milestones were about the character. At first, that is. Plus, the event milestones are about shadows and personae and such.

    Just letting you guys know I've made a template for PCs, made a page for each of you and adapted yours, Capfalcon. Hope you guys don't mind.

    Be sure to fill it out before Wednesday so we can start the adventure proper! :)

    I do, but not on this computer. Maybe I remember what you're wondering, though.

  • jdarksunjdarksun Scion of Chaos Registered User regular
    Just wanted to refresh my memory. I'm having a hard time remembering stuff like Power Set restrictions.

    What do you mean? The number of powers in one?

    It's one power at d10, 2 powers at d8 and one power at d6. You also have 3 SFX and one obligatory limit, described in the OP (but you can have more limits if you want, for example, Capfalcon's persona is weak to water.)

  • CapfalconCapfalcon Tunnel Snakes Rule Capital WastelandRegistered User regular
    Alright, I think Good Ol' Gil's ready to rock.

  • 21stCentury21stCentury A lovely pixel artist and gamecrafter [They/Them]Registered User regular
    Nice! I like your second Milestone set.

  • EgosEgos Registered User regular
    Is the first "actual" play session planned for tomorrow?

    I'm gonna try and flesh out my character's background tonight and then decide which persona fits best .

    Since Only Cap's posted his character sheet on the Obsidian Portal page, I'm guessing not everyone's ready... Depending on if everyone's ready or not, we'll have the first real play session tomorrow. If not everyone's got a ready character, i'll try to help you guys flesh them out further and we'll start next week. :)

    I'm going to get my character up before the session. Last couple days have been hectic for me with lots to do at work and changing sleep cycles back and forth from nights --> days --> nights.

    Yeah, those can be a handful. One thing, though, is that backstory will lead you towards interesting milestones.

    For milestones, here's a few ideas: PTSD can be an interesting part of the character, maybe you can expand upon that with a milestone.
    Another good starting point is what your character aims to become. We're starting with someone who has seen the evil in men's hearts, so you could expand on that with stuff about either distrusting people or trusting people more, depending on the direction you want to take your character in.
    Finally, another good starting point could come from his military background. Something like that could be interesting, like have a milestone for using military training to turn the party from unfocused rabble with powers into a lean mean fighting machine.

    It's an interesting character, and I have to admit that milestones are probably the hardest part.

    Filled out most of my sheet. I'm a bit stuck on SFX though, and I still need to flesh out that bio.

    Just a heads up your first milestone's 1 XP action... I don't think I understand how it works within the context of the milestone itself... You have 2 alcohol-related milestone and one about getting your persona out once? You might want to change it to something like, say, 1 XP when you try a new type of liquor, maybe?

    Also, don't forget you get 4 powers. SFX exist to refine the powers, so you should start with those.

    Whoops, blame that on my sleep-deprived brain. I'll get that fixed right away.

    EDIT: I changed that to accomplishing a stunt while drunk. Should be more appropriate, plus I think it allows for a more natural progression in terms of character development.
