Looking for players.

So,,.It seems that Alacrity is back.

I will be hanging around the inn again on a weekly basis to play Tann's NFL pick'em Game. So perhaps we can ,.

Play a game?
Here is what I am thinking. Short adventures based on the five room/event model. Not too much lead in and once a week posting. I will be using very "light" version of rule and the idea will be to get characters done fast and play without too much fuss and bother.

Possible games:

Spies - using a light version of Top Secret TSI, you play agents in an organization called UNIT (United Nations Intelligence Taskforce). You will be given assignments, travel around the world in the 1960's, driving fast cars, fighting evil plots and saving the world.

Scifi/Fantasy mix -Using a lite version of Titansgrave, you are in a post war situation, the world was ruined by wars and now the remains of civilization is rebuilding. Exploring ruins of ancient civilizations, avoiding the control of city-state governments and fighting the leftover soldiers/creatures of the war.

Tell me which you'd prefer to play but please talk to me.

Welcome..........

Who's that skinny guy and what did he do with Alacrity?

Well either would be ok, but neither is really what I know to make up story.
But I've not let that stop me before.

Seems that they both have fighter types and maybe the Scifi would fit better.

But I watched The Man From UNCLE when it was the TV series so maybe I could create a Napoleon Ody.

Welcome Back!

It is good to see you back in the Inn.

I have enjoyed your games before and would love to do so again. Honestly, either of those would work. I have no experience with either, so it is a wild card for me either way. But so was WWII Horror and that was cool, so why not jump in? If I had to pick the sci-fi one seems a bit more like the kind of things I read and such, so I'd probably pick that one. But a spy game is pretty cool too, so whatever.

The key idea is this . . . count me in!

99 ~sigh~

The only reason Smart was Smart was 99 ~Sigh~

Count me in of course Roger you know I never turn down one of your games. As for the game type whatever the overall players decide on is ok with me though I do lean towards Sci-Fi.

Oh and by the way

WELCOME BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

*fades in*

I've a horrible track record with games, and not much spare time, so I'd probably be a horrible choice for a player.

I just popped in to say welcome back.

*evaporates*

~Looks around~ Was someone just here?

So do you have enough players for this game? Do you know which type of game it is going to be?

Curious as I am hoping to start thinking about my character soon.

Okay

Party - Tann, Boo Boo, Odyson, and Nomad

History: TITANSGRAVE: THE ASHES OF VALKANA
Eons before Valkana heard her own name, she bore witness to beings not of this realm. These Ancients planted the seeds of life for Valkana, and as that life grew and civilizations formed, the thirst for supremacy blossomed into war. Gifted with an unmatched intellect, the Saurian Empire built mighty war machines and claimed dominion on Valkana, until the heavens themselves fell upon them. Valkana was plunged into darkness and a thousand years of war. In this crucible, great heroes were forged, and together they extinguished the flames of battle. A new civilization was built on the ruins of the old. A peaceful world of magic and science, where the forces of Chaos are patient and not easily contained. Left to fester, ancient evils threaten to emerge and unleash mayhem upon the world. And so, to face them, new heroes must arise from the ASHES OF VALKANA.

The story is set on the world of Valkana, which is inhabited by several different races, including humans, elves, saurians (lizard people), orcs, hobbits and dwarves. Long ago, the highly intelligent saurians developed advanced technology that allowed them to dominate all the other races, until one day the sky fell, leaving the world in ruins. There followed a thousand years of Chaos Wars, but eventually peace was established between all the races. But now, an old threat re-emerges, and it will be up to a band of four adventurers to save the world...

SR in the time line stands for Solar Reckoning, a very significant point in their history (see below).

Pre-history: An ancient alien civilization terraformed Valkana and seeded it with life but never returns.
-1200 SR: The Ancient World. The rise of the first civilizations. Elven and Saurian Empires dominated the lands of early Valkana. They subjugated the other races - Dwarves and Orcs.
-500 SR: Ancient Wars. The start of the ancient wars between the elves and saurians.
-350 SR: Rise of the Saurians. Saurian empires (and their servitor races) defeat the elves and almost drive them to extinction except those who retreat to hidden sanctuaries. Technology flourished during this time.
-275 SR: Orc Civil War. With war all but a thing of the past, the orcs grow restless at their menial task jobs. The orcs rebel, the dwarves fight for the saurians and the saurian empire is torn apart in civil war.
-200 SR: Cataclysm. While the flames of war engulfed all of Valkana, the storm of cataclysm befell the world suddenly. No one knew what caused it but destruction engulfed the planet, sending everyone who survived underground. This begins what is called the Endless Night, a total darkness that enveloped the planet.
1 SR: Solar Reckoning. The sun comes out and the Endless Night is lifted.
1-990 SR: Rebirth. Civilization is rebuilt. Saurians, Orcs, Dwarves and Elves resurface to find new denizens of Valkana - humans and halflings. No one knows where they came from, but the saurians and the elves were forced to share their world. Humans aggressively reproduced and established most of the new City-states. Magic awakened during this time, elves being the most talented at it. Technology and Magic flourished during this time, often in combination with one another.
990 SR: Rise of the Prophet. A saurian female named Dhawan rose up and preached about the abomination that is the merging of tech and magic. By this time, it was very prevalent and she began instilling a fear in society about it. She preached of a second Cataclysm that would befall Valkana unless more people fell into her beliefs.
999 SR: Chaos Wars. Followers of the prophet and those that opposed her clashed over a 100+ year war that devastated the world once again. During this time, some more advanced tech city states suffer from a cyber attack called the Data Plague, paralyzing their data information systems and robotic infrastructure.
1115 SR: End of the Chaos Wars. The Prophet is defeated. City-states arise from the ashes.
1250 SR: Present day. Some city states with high tech but most of the world exists with whatever can be salvaged from the ruins and waste. Some towns and communities exist, trading posts and the like but there are many marauders, bandits, and "leftover" creatures from the war. This will be a dark fantasy series.

Creating a character (Basics for now to get you started, more later)
Class: There are only three classes to choose from - Warrior, Rogue and Mage. Mages have access to healing magic. Rogues are not just thieves but fighters who prefer to use speed and agility over heavy weapons.

Race: Saurian, Human, Orc, Elf, Dwarf or Halfling. Each have bonuses and penalties in ability scores

Weapons Available: the usual medieval set of swords, bows, maces etc. Then there are energy weapons as well (Blaster, heavy blasters, blaster rifles, etc). Black powder/gunpowder was never discovered on Valkana. Alchemy exist which has the ability to create limited grenades.

Abilities:
Your character is defined by nine abilities:
• Accuracy represents your character's physical precision and skill with finesse and ranged weapons, such as bows and rapiers.
• Communication covers your character's social skills, personal interactions, and ability to deal with others.
• Constitution is your character's fortitude and resistance to harm.
• Dexterity encompasses your character's agility, hand-eye coordination, and quickness.
• Fighting is your skill at combat with heavier weapons, such as axes and spears.
• Intelligence is a measure of your character's smarts, knowledge, and education.
• Perception covers all the senses and the ability to interpret sensory data.
• Strength is your character's physical prowess.
• Willpower encompasses mental toughness, discipline, and confidence.
You will rank your abilities from best to worst and I will assign bonuses based on the rank. Stat for class is fairly obvious (Warrior - Fighting Strength Constitution, Rogue - Accuracy Dexterity Perception, Mage - Intelligence, Willpower and Communication)

Background: All of you live in the town of Thay, where the roads to the three major city-states intersect. The town grew around a tavern called the Pegasus Inn. The inn is owned by a dwarf named Dwan who hires young "adventurers" to head out to the Rust Waste (a giant ruin of a former city) to find lost tech and useful items. These Scouts are paid in room and board at the inn, plus cash for items found. Dwan is a very fair and reasonable man to work for and rewards hard work. He also gives Scouts the chance to work at the Inn on the side for money. The main item that scouts want to find are the old batteries made of an element called Fulign. These batteries power everything (including Blasters) but so far only one mine is left that has any of it. Dwan has a solar recharge centre but would rather find the old batteries than pay the outrageous prices of the city-state that controls the mine.

More later
