The Questions are in!Question 1:
  • Name up to 3 things you would like to see or experience in game.
    1. NPC interaction with consequences. I've actually felt most DMs use NPCs like doorstops. Good for one thing and quickly discarded once their use is done with. I've actually tried such NPCs into the one game that I ran. It's more work for the DM but I think it's worth it. If you need inspiration there is a book called NPCs that I liked. It was a good read at any rate. Can't remember the author's name off the top of my head.
    2. Anything from the Fallout games would be awesome. Supermutants, ghouls, little green aliens crash landing, vert-a-birds, the Predwin...things like that
    3. Close encounters of the Ghost Rock kind. I feel with all the mention of screaming ghosts there might actually be a Ghost out there intent on messing with the living
  • Did you really like the chase scene from Mad Max: Fury Road and would love to have your character participate in something similar?
    • I've actually have never done a chase scene in any of my games that I can remember. ...nope drawing a blank. It would be cool though.
  • How about some base/settlement building like in Fallout 4 (Minus one Preston Garvey bugging you about side quests)?
    • I don't understand all the Garvey hate. I just find him slightly annoying. And as a romance pick, he is a bit bland. <shrug> Doesn't really matter I suppose. I'm not that good at settlement building but I'd still give it a shot.
  • Maybe you just want face a cybernetically enhanced Stone riding a Rattler size Diablo while surrounded by an army of Doombringers?
    • I'd be up to it, but Atta's aggressive joy aside, pure combat is not all that I would want out of this game
Question 2:

What is your character's deepest, darkest Fear?
  • Atta: Finding understanding of the world at large. Atta accepts that she is not smart and actually relishes the simplicity of her worldview. If she ever is forced to see the world for what it is, Atta will run gibbering into the night. Atta's delusions, including her attachment to spicing up her food with radioactive substances, are tied to her stable-ish mind.

  • Amy: Never getting in anything that can fly again. She is downright terrified of bing in an airplane. Amy wouldn't be able to even sleep in one on the ground with it still able to fly. And even wrecked plains make her uncomfortable.

Question 1:
- Not just combat. I'd rather spend 50 posts writing interesting conversations then just listing off actions during a fight. Combat has its place of course but shouldn't always be the answer.
- Settlement Managaement sounds fun. Not to the point of micromanaging or anything but helping to build a settlement up with general decisions could be fun. Somewhere friendly Npc's might live to give assistance to our group.
- Woudn't mind seeing a fully fleshed out Dempsy Islands Theme Park but I know that's unlikely.

Question 2:
- Shhhh....

This has taken entirely longer than it should have. I'll try to read through thread again and answer some of the questions posted soon.

Application
Name: Garret Sax
right-aligned image

Concept: Law Dog

Background: The Kastner kid found him. No, the younger one. Just collapsed right there beside the road I heard, couple holes and blood showin where the bullets went through. When the boy ran up to Shakufa's place and banged on the door she said he was white as a ghost claimin' there was a deadman walkin'. Truth come out that the boy started to take the badge off'a his jacket an the fella grabbed his arm without even lookin' up. Kid prolly pissed himself.

Well anyway the fella's been laid up for a couple week now but I saw him hobblin round this mornin. Had the badge on, guessin' it's legit, not sayin it ain't. He just seems a little young.

'Sides, if'n he is a member of the ol' police force, so what? World went to Hell twelve years ago and the law more'r'less went with it. What's a badge mean these days, here or anywhere else? What's a law man gonna do against the crazies and the critters out there?

Hell if I know...

@Cap Ut: 2 lbs. seems fair.

@ Silk: Thanks for the Input although I would like to know a little bit more about what would set off Atta's Fear. Would learning that not everyone loves radiation and that it's a bad thing? Would someone forcing her to listen to a history text book set her off? What about just learning that the real reason the world blew up was all because the Reckoner's planned it? Just a little more detail would be helpful. 25 xp for you.

@ Swordplay82: 25 XP for you as well

@DB Cowboy: Good to have you. Unless you find something you want to ask about specifically the only other issues is finding Allusions for bonus XP, Listing Three things you would like in/from this game, and listing your character's greatest Fear. I would also like to know a little more about your character's background. Where they came from? What they promised themselves (Oath)? That sort of thing. If you want to keep it secret from the other players that's fine but if I don't know anything then it won't be included in the story.

-

@EVERYONE: So we have 5 possible players so far and I'm fine with playing with all of you baring anything I'm not currently aware of. Because of that, and because I don't want to make you wait, I will be opening the game thread this Saturday. It's a bit of a soft open, letting you settle into Crooked Creek and Roleplay a little before triggering event occurs, but there shouldn't be any issues. I will keep the application open for potential last minute entries but a team of 4-5 is a decent start to get things rolling.

Thead Link and opening posts will appear tomorrow evening.

Garret's answers


Question 1: Name up to 3 things you would like to see or experience in game.
1) Address the place of Law (with a capital L) in a world where "might makes right". To convince someone(s) to do something not just because it benefits them, but because it is the right thing to do in a civilized society. Right to an attorney, right to trial by jury, fair trial...so many things that are easy to cast aside in the moment of a "frontier justice" kind of mindset. The opportunity to stand for something larger than "the now".
2) The showdown. Out numbered. Out gunned....but with a couple tricks up our sleeves. And then something else goes wrong and suddenly we have to adapt. Games like The Expanse have a name for it, they call it The Churn. I want to be in a tricky situation that suddenly become a lot more desperate (but not hopeless).
3) Exploration. The world isn't the same as it was 12 years ago and people can walk down some odd roads when left on their own. Maybe that town down South that seems so nice has actually gone cannibal if they catch an isolated traveler. Maybe the rumors of a source for generator parts was an amusement park and the automations are still active...deadly so. Can be a little wacky or serious, I'm good with either.

Question 2: What is your character's deepest, darkest Fear?
Failure to live up to the legacy. Garret wasn't the original owner of his badge but he's sworn to uphold everything it stands for. He's determined but...but there's always that fear deep down that he won't be good enough. Guess I need to write that backstory....

Much appreciated DBCowboy. That'll be 20 XP for you. Looking forward to that deeper Background.

Unless I missed something, Amy and Atta are both done.

I decided not to go through and redo Atta's background though I did change the town of Sweetwater to Crooked Creek. Sweetwater is in CatCanCooks game that I'm in, and I believe I had just made a post there when I finished Atta's background

Lol, I just realized that I didn't figure out their gear. If it's alright with Taleteller I'll leave that to when I know which(if) character is getting.

On that subject, I really like Amy over Atta at the moment. While finalizing her mechanics I realized she could be quite bad <censored>! even with only 1 arm

OK Everybody!

The thread is currently up HERE!

Feel free to go in, add your character to your Character Thread, and take a look at the introduction. If anything doesn't quiet mesh with your character idea just let me know and we can adjust it a little.

Happy Roleplaying and Welcome to the Wastes!

What powers motorcycles?

We could use one more Maghnuis. You would likely be someone the other players will encounter on the road once they start traveling or a resident who wasn't as noticeable until you make your appearance. However, as a word of advice we already have a decent amount of mechanics and mechanically inclined individuals. Take a look at the current characters and hopefully you can find a niche the group is currently weak in which you can still enjoy playing.

To answer your question motorcycles can be powered in multiple ways in the Wasted West. Before the was there were fusion powered vehicles but these were predominately rare and used by the military so are not available at character creation. More contemporary Fuel sources like Gasoline, Diesel, and Ethanol are available (Ethanol specifically made in Crooked Creek as apposed to other fuel types) but Spook Juice (a fuel created through the distilling of Ghost Rock) is more commonly used around Junkyard.

The real question is where any particular fuel is readily available? Anywhere with farming is capable of producing Ethanol. Less hospitable areas like the Salt Lake Flats would use Spook Juice due to Ghost Rock Sources while Texas has still working Oil Towns.

Other sources of power, like coal or propane, are also available depending on the area but are not viable as fuel for motorcycles.

Going back to your possible character we currently have the following:
- A Charismatic Sharpshooting Cowgirl
- A Young Junker with a Ray Gun
- A Mysterious Lawdog to be
- An Grizzled Ex-Biker turned Handyman
- A One armed Veteran Scavenging Macgiver

Current Missing Arcane Backgrounds:
- Syker
- Toxic Shaman
- Witch
- Librarian

-Templar and Doomsayer are also unrepresented but are restricted.

Possible suggested Roles:
- Nobody is really a healer yet so a Sawbones or other type capable of healing wounds wouldn't be a bad idea but the current Junker could do it if needed and if he had the parts.
- Although the Scavenger and a few of the others have decent stealth there isn't a dedicated Stealth build.
- The Scholar/Egghead/Nerd archetype isn't really represented.
- Same for Long arm Sniper builds.

This isn't to say a character needs to use any of what I listed above just that those types of characters are not currently in use in the game. There are plenty of other ideas that can be interesting so feel free to design what you would like to play and I'll look forward to reading about it.

Sounds good. He will have only minimum mechanical abilities. Battery power is not yet sufficient for motorcycles?

I was just looking at the Wiki and found:

"A ttributes start at Level 1 (d4) and cost one point per additional level; Level 1 (d4) in an Attribute would cost nothing and Level 5 (d12) would cost four points.

Is that accurate?

Electric Powered vehicles never really caught on in the world of Deadlands. They existed of course but were even more rare then Fusion Missed your Wiki question but that is dealt with below.

Except for the d4 in each Attribute, that is 'Free'. So at character creation you have a d4 in all stats as a base and then 'Advance' them by choice. Each Advance progresses the Stat/Attribute by one die type (d4 becomes d6, d6 becomes d8, etc.). To start you automatically have 5 Advances specifically for your Attributes. That is enough to have d6 in each stat or to have some higher at the cost of keeping a few d4's. You can also use two Minor Flaws or one Major Flaw to Advance Attributes as well by one step.

After creation you gain Advancements as you play and one Advancement can raise one Attribute one level (d4 to d6, d6 to d8, etc.)

There are of course other uses for Advancements, whether from 'leveling up' in game or from Flaws, but that is noted in the Character Creation Rules for this game.

Please Note: Skills do not have the 'Free' d4 rule that Attributes have. There are some skills (Athletics, Common Knowledge, Notice, Persuasion, and Stealth) which start at d4. You then have 12 Skill Advancements to spend as you wish, with most skill advances to d4 costing 1 Skill Advancement each. There is an exception for when a skill Advances past it's linked Attribute but all of that is outlined in the Character Creation Tag within the first post on this thread.

Yes, that's accurate, but it's best not to confuse the mechanics by using the term "levels." That's not a term used in the rules. Instead, the game uses "die type" when referring to an attribute or skill.

So...
Attributes start at d4, and characters have 5 points to increase an attribute by one die type. An "average" character would have a d6 in each of the five attributes (having spent one point in each).
