General Rules
  • Keep Out of Character and In Character separate. Please do not discuss details about the game with other players, especially players that you aren't in a group with. As hard as you might try, knowing something that your character doesn't will effect your judgment.
  • If you make me upset, you will have to make a Spontaneous Combustion Check. Essentially, I will roll a d20, and if it lands on a 1, you spontaneously combust and die, but if it lands on a 2-20, you're safe. Each additional check increases the threat area by one, so that the next time you make the check, 1 and 2 equal death, and 3-20 are safe, etc. I will be keeping track of how many times you've made me upset, and will let you know upon request.
  • This thread is only for use when you are all together, so we won't start using it until you all arrive. Until then, we will carry out the game via PMs.
  • Please remember that dialog should always be in " " and actions should always be in * *. I will disregard anything that does not follow this format, and you should disregard other players' misuse of this format as well, to help them remember.

Okay, I'm set.

So can we do things like head off to the gun store or something?

And can we use tools as weapons?

Sorry, but I'm just used to playing RPs on another site, and that one doesn't use the same system as this game.

But the answer is yes: you tell me what to do, I translate it into game mechanics and perform it and tell you the results. The beauty of the d20 system is that if there isn't a game mechanic for something existing, I can create one.

I'm sorry for posting, but I had a question about game mechanics.
Specifically, that mechanic actually exists? I thought it was a joke...

Your post wasn't specifically pertaining to the game, so it was ok.

It's a bit of both. In the CB, I'm much easier to upset. When the game starts proper, I won't be throwing these around for every little thing. Really, the only thing that will get you one of these is failure to separate OoC and IC. Even if your actions make me upset, as long as it makes complete sense IC, I won't punish you for it. But the moment you try and exploit OoC knowledge, BAM! Spontaneous combustion.

I'm sending everyone a copy of my summary of their characters so far. Once you receive this, you may continue making actions.
