I'm working on a forum game and need around four people to test some things out for me.
I would appreciate anybody who would be willing to help. If you know how to play d&d you are perfectly qualified.
I need to test the challenge rating on an encounter and test out a mechanic that could be allot of fun.
I don't have the player's handbook memorized or anything, but I've played some D&D. If that qualifies me, I'd be in. :)
I can help.
Are you guys familiar with roll20? I barely know how to use it myself, which is one of the things I want to work on, but that is where I'm testing the encounter.
If you want to help make a level 8 character, no background or anything like that needed, in one of the following classes:
Barbarian, Fighter, or Ranger. For ability scores, you have 72, assign them as you wish. This tool should help: (Give yourself 10 times the gp it gives you.)
For feats take a gander at this:
Make the character and send me the information via PM. I'll set the encounter up on roll20 and give you guys a link.
I've got two characters so far. Thank you guys! I need at least one more person. After that we need to figure out a time this week we can be on at the same time to run the encounter. I'm in no rush to get that started though. I need to be comfortable enough with all the mechanics to run it smoothly.
I'm in, I'll build my character at my earliest convenience.
Sent in my character
That makes four. Just a couple of fixes and I'll have all the characters. I will then play the characters in a few mindless death matches to get a feel of the mechanics and feats you guys chose. Then we will have the encounter. I'm getting stoked guys.
Well, I wasted more time than I care to admit, but, I finished all the characters. Going to do one last look over tomorrow, and include the armor check penalties I forgot. :l
How many of you four have already made a roll20 account?
I have one. :)
Not me Do I need one?
all joined up
I have one.
As do I.
So we all have an account whats the next step?
I'm building the encounter right now. Roll20 didn't have the kind of tokens I needed so I'm having to improvise.
What is a time say, Thursday, you can all get on?
Sorry, not available at all this Thursday. :\
Friday then? We can make due without one of you to be honest, but I would like to have you all.
Friday's good for me. Any time from 7 PM to 1 AM, EST.
good Friday from 7AM to 230PM PST I could get on from about 7PM to 10PM PST
I'm touring a campus Friday, so I have no clue when I'll be back.
Cool, did you mean PDT? the western United states currently observes Pacific daylight time, not pacific standard time.
Honestly I consider PST and EST just the names for their respective timezones. I don't really pay too much attention to the switch between PST and PDT, since it really makes no difference if you're just wondering what timezone they're in.
Unless I'm horribly wrong, we are all observing daylight saving time right now correct? If so
7:00 PM - 1:00 AM EDT = 6:00 PM - 12:00 AM CDT
7:00 PM - 10:00 PM PDT = 9:00 PM - 12 AM CDT
I am looking at a time between 9:00 PM and 12:00 AM.
I still need to find out when Bo and Killa will be available.
I'm on the EDT zone right now. Anytime after 8ish I'm always good. Before then and I might be out or doing something.
For everyone besides Ugi, I'm on CST for anyone who's wants to know what time I'm talking about. I'll be touring a campus university Friday, but I should be back before it gets dark, so I might be open to it.
Actually Bo, we are on CDT right now. On November 14 we will return to CST.
Looks like we have a pretty solid time. :D
No matter what you call it, it's still an hour behind this site's time :P
Everyone still good for tonight?
Yep, 10:30 EST (EDT if you want to get technical).
Do you have a link to a game lobby or something for roll20 we will meet in?
Yes, I'll send that in due time. :D
Good on my end. Tired from football but otherwise everything working.
I'm finishing up something so I don't have to do it once the game starts. After that I will shoot you a link over PMs.
So, is there a new time?
I don't think so. I prepared for this for to long! haha.
I'm ready to roll anyways.
Umm... guess who forgot about the time, guys?
If you had scrolled up slightly you would have seen I wrote the time, and you already had the link, so you could have joined us...
I didn't have the link. I saw how Ugi said he'd send it but I didn't have it.
You were talking in the game room to him earlier before I joined it lol.
He was there before I turned into the swamp, it was a grassland with a hill then, He didn't know that was the link.
I should have sent him a link when we started incase he got on.
That and I didn't save the link or anything.
And it was like, days before. When he was testing the system.
Fair enough, I didn't know it was that long ago since it's just a chatlog without timestamps on it.
Your guy did good! Wish you had been there.
Really sorry to have missed this... I came home from work, fell into bed, and slept for about 16 hours. Anyway, if you decide you want to run it again, I'd be in. Hopefully for real this time. :/
The next thing I want to do is test a jousting mechanic. We can do that right here in the forums. 4 NPC's will be participating along side your characters to have an 8 person tournament.
Anyone other than cool interested in this? It won't be dynamic or anything. You decide on your target and you roll a die, then repeat for a couple rounds till there is a winner. With that said, I think to handle the die rolls either I would have to do them myself, or we could do them at roll20.
If your doing this tomorrow I am sorry but I cannot do it. I am visiting my sick grandmother and it may be the last time I see her. Hope you understand.
I'm in. By jousting, is it literally riding at each other with lances? If so, I'm happy I have ride and handle animal skills :)
Sure, I'll play. :)
you do realize what NPC means right?
You do realize what Ugi actually said, right?
Would you like to be a PC so I will only need 3 NPCs?
I know I didn't actually make it, but I did make a character for the original scenario. Unless I'm missing something, I don't see how there are 4 PCs if 'Ulch' isn't one of 'em. :P
We are using your original characters.
I'll be using Simon and David (for those who actually participated in the test run)
I will also make two more NPCs at my earliest convenience. (probably tomorrow)
Will any skills and saves apply to jousting? I can see riding as a definately, MAYBE handle animal, if only to keep it from panicking, fortitude to keep from being knocked off, and dexterity to hit the target with strength to determine how much of the lance breaks. Not a whole lot reflex when you need to stay in one spot :P
You pegged allot of it. It uses BAB, AC, Ride, Tumble, and a couple other things.
when do we start?
When I get ahead of schedule again, or when I reach the day allotted to testing the Jousting system. Whichever comes first.
Cool, I'll tell you what I tell others. You don't need to remind the GM that his game exists. Bumping is useless, as Ugi will post when he has an update. Trust me, it's gonna take a while, it's pretty complex.
I was mostly bumping so that I didn't lose the thread but I do realize your statement above is true.
