So I just realized that I'm not sure how to go about making a roll in play by post. May seem like a dumb question, but how do you guys handle this in the thread? I'm loving the focus and roleplay and don't want to ruin the immersion.
I ask because my character took the feat Breadth of Experience and will want to examine the flux with anything that is pertinent (knowledge nature, arcana, history, local, heck even planes in case this crystal comes from another plane, profession herbalist, brewer for the tea aspects, etc.).
On a side note specifically for the GM, Asoel came to the town for the peace talks I've mentioned in character. When is his first meeting scheduled, as that will influence my next post. I see Asoel as the guy to definately arrive early, but I'll let you decide if "early" is an hour or a couple days.
Sorry for the uber newbie posts, I'll pick it up eventually. I'm already enjoying this so much
Do not be sorry about asking questions. How else will you find out? There is no reason you would know and, honestly, every GM does it differently. I've been at the Inn for awhile and don't know how that will be handled in this game. Also, speaking as another character whose life may depend on your character getting things right - please ask! I don't wanna die!
All good questions, and I'm sorry for not addressing this sooner, I knew in advance after all that you are new to pbp. I handle dice rolls on my end, adding whatever modifiers from your sheet in order to determine success or failure to varied degrees and will then post results when I update.
Logging talks are scheduled for a week from your arrival date, you were sent ahead to gather information for the diplomats and offer insight that you are better able to provide due to your past among humans. This "distraction" with the drug problem gives you opportunity to wander and gather information as needed and provide a positive service to the community as a whole which Asoel likely thinks will help the Elven cause in the upcoming summit.
That answers my question. I also like the change that Asoel is an advance representative for the real diplomats. Makes more sense for his background and training, and it really would push him to seek out this opportunity which is more his style. Awesome, thanks.
Adolfo looks rather forlorn in his cell and may respond better to kindness then anything else. However, despite the fact that Kheric has taken a lead so far in asking questions, I think someone else should play the initial role of good cop. Kheric has a very high charisma and a lot of skill in diplomacy, so maybe he should be the good cop. But he is also a dhampir with notable fangs and a healthy does of arrogance. While his skill is not intimidate, I think intimidate and diplomacy compliment each other pretty well. (Only the DM can tell) He isn't naturally a 'bad cop,' but diplomacy is not always a soft sport. (As our elf will apparently soon find out.) He might be the best bad cop in the group. Then again we have something called a 'ratman' in the group, so I may be wrong. thoughts?
Kheric has no problem with others taking the lead - just as a note - he has an 18 charisma and 8 skills in diplomacy. Of course, he is also rather arrogant and has pale skin and fangs. Just to let you know for future negotiations as I suspect this will not be our last interogation.
Just so we're all on the same page, I will try to post updates on Mondays moving forward, no particular time, just a day of the week. If I find myself unable to post an update on any given Monday then I will post here in the QA to let everyone know. I realize that Monday is only 4 days away, so if for some reason you don't get a post in before my update please feel free to do a backpost and I will edit my update as needed to account for backposts.
