Good news indeed.

Yes it would be nice to have a couple more players who are equally enthusiastic posters as we. They are, aren't they?

Well, more news.

Anyway, the username of my friend is "clockwork demise", now he's got his account working. I'll talk to him soon, and he'll probably be in touch shortly.

He's definetly an enthusiastic poster. Perhaps a bit less time than I have, but at the same time, perhaps more dedicated in many ways. Not that I'm not, mind you. ^_^'

However, while I type this, I have to point out that I won't be posting for about 4 or so days. You're welcome to control my character rather than waiting mind you, but I won't have Internet access until Tuesday next week.

I'll see if I can write up a quick post tonight, though I have to get to bed...

Good Post

Ok, hope to see your friend soon. I think we can slow the posting down a little till you get back. We dont have to post ever day. Though it is has been fun!

heh

As I said, no worries for posting speed, only minimum of once per week and a half, and that is only really nominal. We're here for an RP, not a 9 to 5 job ^^

Several Things

Hey again,

Clockwork's character is awesome.

Oh, and I have updated the character sheets with two sections, Budget and XP.

The first contains information on current Electrum and the previous expenditure and income.

The second is just a list of XP gained and what for.

Well, couple of notes...

All of the new features are cool, and of course: I'm back as you've noticed.

Quick question about XP, do we get experience for, say, passing checks every now and then? Directly, that is, or spectacularly passing them?

Also, by the way, Mysterion, Varis had said that it took a while for the soreness to pass when DHarem last put *him* in that position. Mind you, I can edit my post if you'd prefer.

Aaaah yes,

Thanks for reminding me. Yeah, I'll probably give some XP for pwning and badassity, be it in skill rolls or actions.

Nice guy

I've decided to be less stingy on the xp handouts. I've bumped the 50 for having met the Equilibriate to 200, and added 50 for your d20=20 earlier, Celtia.

Quick explanation

Might need explaining later: antimagic and nomagic.

Antimagic bonuses add to any roll involving defending against magic. Got a +2 antimagic ring: need to jump out of the way of a magically affected boulder? +2 to it. Trying to resist a sorceror trying to get into your mind? +2. No help against magical weapons though, unless they have an effect such as paralysis or whatever. A magical sword's stunning effect you may get a +2, but the +3 to hit still gets ya!

Nomagic is simple: no magic things work. Be it people or items, nope! With the exception of some items which are purposefully designed to work in those situations, but they're rare and not guaranteed to work.

An example your characters are probably familiar with is the Wand of Force. Normally, when activated, it blasts out a "wind" in the direction it's pointed at. In a nomagic zone it works half the time, but that's still a half more than most items.

Back to resistances...

Ok, that makes sense with wand of force, magic weapons, ect. However whilst looking over my character sheet I noticed that I had 2 innate Magic resistance and 2 physical resistance from Mana Body and an additional 2 magic resistance from my glyphed curiass. Does that mean I have 4 magic resistance from my armour and body in total?

Your bonuses

The +2 DR is a generic damage reduction that's ON TOP of the Damage Reduction on your armour.
The +2 innate antimagic bonus does stack, yes, giving a total of +4 to any defensive magic-related roll. Nice, eh?

Thinking about armour, the four numbers: HP is obvious, the amount of hits the armour can take before being destroyed (can be repaired BEFORE it hits 0).
S, B and P are respectively Slashing, Bashing and Piercing. The numbers refer to damage reduction.

For example, someone with 50/50HP and 2P-DR armour, with 2 innate DR: when hit by an arrow for what would be 10 damage, the person only receives 6, as 4 were absorbed by the armour and innate DR.
The armour, of course, will drop from 50/50HP to 49/50. The person could then go ask a blacksmith to smash it up to tip-top shape ^^

Proposishuns

I apologise for the mulitplication of the "propositions," it had just occurred to me that, well, three plot-related offers in such a short period of time? Sounds like a milkable joke to me! ^^

... I have a bizarre sense of humour.

Metagame Note

Just a little highly OOC note: No more important plot-related stuff is gonna happen until the clock strikes 4 and you need to be at the Knowledge Festival.

So it's time to perhaps seek out a little stuff:
(yes, this IS a CTRL-C of PMs I sent a while back)

Seeing as Varis and DHarem know Tithuana quite well, they know that in the immediate area there are one smithy, one weaponsmith, an alchemist's shop, and a general adventuring gear shop, along with the general bakers, etc necessary in a city.

DHarem also knows he can visit the Monastery at any time to pick up his monthly allotment of field gear (medical kits, healing potions, other stuff) if he wants. He hasn't taken this month's allotment.

Varis knows he has a strongbox in the local bank where he can get out some stuff he left there for a rainy day, including a few healing potions (1d10) and two or three burning oil vials (firebombs), along with some other gear for such ventures, and some personal stuff.

In the central part of the city can be found a similar set-up, but universally more expensive, and with a couple of extra things, such as an art and furniture shop, and a Mage's tower. (*nudge nudge*, who might be able to help with the small "no-magic" pebble.)

Tut tut tut-

Tut tut, helping us out so obviously with the mage tower. ~_^ I'm expecting things won't always be so clear, though. ^^'

Anyway, Varis has placed down his plan for the next couple of strikes. If anyone in the group has any differing plans or ideas, they're welcome to mention them. I think it can be assumed from previous jobs together that Varis has been proven wrong many times over.
