Rebirth of Harmony

Postby BackwardsCompatible » Sat Mar 01, 2014 7:56 pm

A strange note or package awaits you, it is remarkably clean, as though the paper that makes up the envelope or packing paper was just made, inside there is a letter or holo-tape and a small crystal shard, as you pick up the shard it slides into your hoof, no pain is felt, but it's startling none the less, and then you turn your attention to the tape or letter, reading or listening to it as appropriate
"Greetings and Salutations, if you are reading and or listening to this message that means you are a compatible component for a drastic project that should better the post apocalyptic world has become. It will not be an easy project, and will require a bit of hard work, dedication and sacrifice. If by this point you are still reading and or listening to this missive, the sleep spell entwined within it will take effect in approximately one minute and nineteen seconds. Apologies for not giving you a choice in this matter, however for the good of all we cannot take the chance that you would refuse in this project. Ultimately the goal of this project is to restore the world to how it was long before the war and the ministries, where one could help another without blood shed or violence, but simply because it was the right thing to do"
The writing is stylized, almost looking hoof written, or, if you got a tape, the voice is a silky feminine voice, holding back tears but speaking with remarkable strength and then....then everything goes dark......


=========================================================================================================================
Okay, so, I'm not exactly a super experienced GM so bear with me in this some. We will be using a number of house rules and such. It is a survival heavy game, with (hopefully) players trying to establish a new settlement at some point. Character creation for this will be a GROUP thing, which I'll get to in a moment.

Medians used: roll20 and Skype for OOC chatter/side chatting (I would like logs so IC posts will be posted on roll20)
Day: Friday
Time: Starts at 8 pm US central (GMT -6)

If your interested in this say hi to me on IRC (BackwardsCompatible) or on Skype (Search for Backwards Compatible)

Now, rules, cause yaaay

Kkat's Standard (Used for traits/core rules)
Mad Modd's gear lists
Race Tweaks
Blood Loss
Misc Rule tweaks
Trait tweaks/Backrounds
Food and Drink 'weights'
Char Sheet

Now then, Char creation rules: Standard from now on (Level 1, any race in the core doc following tweaks I've provided, 300 starting caps, as a heads up, you will be in an arctic climate to start)
Spoiler: show
These rules are now done, the original cast has been determined as such different standard char creation rules will be used from this point on
-The reason that Char creation is going to be a group exercise is because *drum roll* there will only be one character allowed of a given race, and all of you must select one of the elements of harmony as your 'virtue' for plot reasons *cheers* Yes yes, I know, this is odd, but, it will make sense later in character, which will be reveled in the first session!




Oh yeah, forgot to mention, adult things can/may happen in this game, it is a serious game (so no rediculous silly please, some is fine, but if all you want to do is play a walking joke, look elsewhere plox)

Double Derp, there's some other stuff that's still WiP and we will be using Ragebrew's Expanded Taint chart




Player Slots (a box in it means it is filled, if you've posted in this thread but have yet to add me on skype, your not counted in this player fill)

2 [■]

I can attempt. But no promises I just got a mic and I still can't figure out if it works or not.

G-Man, skype chatting is going to be used for OOC talking/communicating and to help things like skill checks and combat flow more easily.

Hmm, I had interest, but I hate having to use voice chat for OOC. That, and I see no reason why we couldn't use Skype for IC. I do it for my game, all I do is just create two different chat groups with one labeled IC and the other OOC. But, that's your choice. Regardless I hope you have a great game.

The reason for not using voice for IC is for logging, and the reason for voice to use for OOC is it speeds up things like combat significantly

Since I have 4 players already, and multiple potentials for the last two slots, I am going to start this today (Friday March 7th) I would really suggest those of you wanting to join this add me on Skype ASAP (I will be at work most the time between now and game time) so that you don't miss the first session
