Notes, Revenge Plans, Vitriol

This is the OOC/chat/party-planning thread.

Feel free to discuss tactics openly; there's really no risk of metagaming impacting the fun factor in this type of game.

Hi all!

Heads up: I've cut off new submissions for The Witch is Dead, BUT, anyone who has already posted expressing interest can still complete the application process to be considered for the game.

The deadline for finished applications remains the same, 9/18, but we can always start early if everyone is ready before then.

In the meantime, consider checking out your fellow critters' RP samples - they've all been great so far. Also feel free to use this OOC thread to start plotting your bloody revenge.

I finished my character! Beau the rat gardener, reporting for duty! Looks like we have two rats and a toad so far, I'm looking forward to see what other critters we end up with .

Also in my background I assumed the witch was burned at the stake (which they built from stuff found in Beau's garden- those bastards!), but if you had some other form of execution in mind, I'd be happy to adjust the story.

Also also, I hope you don't mind I wrote Beau as coming from the mines underneath the town- it just seemed like such a fitting place for a rat to come from. Not trying to claim any sort of advantage with this- I expect every rat Beau knew has died off by now (rats don't really live all that long, after all), so I'm not trying to write a ready-to-go army of rodents into my backstory !

Although, come to think of it, an army of rats might actually not be a bad idea... Also, how technologically advanced are those miners? Pickaxes only, or might they have some blasting charges we can steal? Or magic equipment of some sort (I noticed there was a wizard tower in the village's center)?

Just tossing some ideas out there, I'd be happy to discuss them IC once the game starts. Looking forward to it!

@DemonSlayer: I‘m afraid only one animal of each kind can be the witch’s familiar, unless Mallothi decrees otherwise of course.

You're absolutely right, thanks for catching that. I'll reroll now and rewrite tomorrow, then- shouldn't be too much of an issue .

Hello hello!

Rolled for Fox! This should be interesting. I'll be working on my backstory and such throughout the week. I'm looking forward to the game!

Hello hello @Elanir! At last we meet again! Hahaha. Look forward to meeting your lovely rat in game.

@Mallothi- Is there a guide for how our spells work?

Here’s the only RAW regarding the use of magic:

Quote:
When you try to do something, roll a D10 and add your most relevant trait. The GM tells you what number you need to equal or beat. If the task is dangerous, you gain a point of DANGER if you fail. If you ever roll equal to or under your DANGER, you’re in serious trouble—dead, trapped, lost, or captured.

USING MAGIC IS ALWAYS DANGEROUS.
So... not much. This game will likely become a big exercise in creative license (by design), and I’ll give you as PCs a lot of leeway when it comes to describing how you think actions and events unfold.

A good rule of thumb might be that the Familiars’ spells are slightly weaker than any similar 5e D&D cantrip. Assume that, up to this point, your spell has been used almost exclusively to aid in housework. So Make flame might only create a flame big enough to light a cooking fire, at a range of “across the room.” That said, if you wanted to “overcharge” the spell for greater effect, I could go for that, at a higher DC.

In general, when it comes to rulings within any 1-page RPG, I will shoot for “fast and loose, but fair.”

Tell that to Og and Odyssey. They've dubbed me a bunny. O.o

Good to be in another game together!

Evening folks!
Looks like I'm playing a cat who knows how to make things clean (of lack there of )
I'll get a proper bio up in the morning!

Welcome Retry! A fox, a cat and two rats... Should I be worrying for the poor rodents here?

Well, you know, in unfamiliar systems like these, it is not always easy recognizing your role in the party. At least we can take comfort in the knowledge that we can always fall back on "quick snack" .

Also welcome Retry! Always good to have someone who can clean up any evidence from the crime scene .

Significantly more useful than the spell most cats get at lvl 1: Knock water glass from nightstand.
