Out of character talking

For all things not in-character. Let me know if you're going to be gone for a time period. Share your thoughts and ideas. Coordinate with the other players. Ask questions about the rules or situation at hand. Etc. Especially, etc.

I may need a couple days before I get my first post in. I apologize for the timing. My aunt just passed away. If things must advance, I'll try to catch up as quickly as possible.

Hey all I’m traveling this weekend and only have my phone so I’ll see how well I can post. I will definitely stay caught up with the story, but posting via mobile is a little tedious so no promises about posting. I’ll be back at 100% by late on Sunday! (US CST here, which I think is GMT-6?)

See you all soon, excited to see our first adventure take shape!

As per the post above; I'm back home now...

As for the adventure. For what it's worth I'm kind of planning to stall with Dolan a little bit and wait until just after the service begins before having him find his way to the church.

I would like to ask for an insight roll in game. How do you want to handle 'secret' checks - give you a modifier (+2), make a roll in the dice thread, do an inum roll
Dice Insight check:
1d20+2 (5)+2 Total = 7
(7) in the game thread, or something else?

In the interest of making rolls more expedient, go ahead and roll a check if you think it applies. I'll trust the players not to meta-game it too much and act appropriately - whatever the dice roll was. If I post "you don't see anything" when you rolled 4 on your perception check, I would expect that you wouldn't instantly call over an ally to also have a look because that's out-of-character knowledge that you rolled low.

Be forewarned, if you want me to overview a service, it is going to be very Lutheran, just with more gods to name drop.

The old green hymnal, or the contemporary blue one?

And girlplay - was Inquisitive ok to plan on for next level, or is that too close to Swashbuckler?

Oztk: Yes, Inquisitive is just fine.

Quick Ben: I'm glad that you have some ideas and inspiration. I was hoping that you'd come up with something of a sermon. It seems like it could be a good character moment for us to learn something about his personality. You can do as much or as little as you like, but I'd encourage you to do more than just roll a charisma (performance) check. After all, being a preacher is one of his main attributes. It'd be interesting to see how he approaches the situation.

Fabulous post, Quick Ben! It was more than I could have hoped for and thank you for supporting the story's theme. And it was great to see Thom in his element. Please take an Inspiration reward. You may use it at any time (before the roll) to gain advantage on an attack, saving throw, or skill check.

Thanks! I'm really rather happy with how it turned out. I think it might be the best thing I've written on the site, so thank you for the reward.

EDIT: Also, mostly shameless self promotion, depending on how you feel about the post.

A few things:

Happy to go along to investigate first, just was worried we were tromping off on a tangent leaving Shadow by his lonesome, and wanted to keep a window open for going to see him and getting everyone in one place sooner -- not sure how much has been planned there...

City Walls -- Ooops -- wasn't even thinking about something physical, just the description of the presence of the Marshal and City forces falling away fairly quickly once you left the city (or even in the poorer parts of the city). Also, though Sam takes a very skeptical view of intentions and capabilities of the law, that's her view, and OOC I suspect it's not as bad as she thinks.

Mostly: Really enjoying this everyone!
