Cross Your Fingers

First off, this will be where I want to keep the OOC conversations. Feel free to chat, ask questions, all that good stuff.

Alright everybody, welcome to the game. I've set up the introductory thread titled The Homecoming. Feel free to wander in, make sure to describe your characters. The object of the thread, obviously, is to introduce yourselves to one another. There are other new changelings in attendance, but this scene is mostly for you-all to meet. Have fun with it though, and remember: open bar.

Where I can put my Character background and application, FranklinRPer?
And of course my secreted Character Sheet.

Still getting all of that set up, but I'll have folders for each of you that only I can view. And for brevity, feel free to just call me Franklin.

Alright, so all the private files should be good, character sheets are coming along, and roleplay has started.

Just a reminder, please keep an eye to Nuts and Bolts for Mechanics updates as well as Where We Play for information updates. Be sure that you've all posted in Word of the Street. As an RP reminder, make sure that if you have a 1 in an Attribute you make some sort of nod to it. Someone with Dexterity 1 will probably bump into things, while Strength 1 will probably be kind of a willowy person. And if any of you happen to have Stamina 1, all that alcohol is gonna go straight to your head. ^_^

Hey guys, just dropping a quick line as I rush off to work, I'll be posting after work to answer any questions and update a few things. Just wanted to let you guys know when to expect it.

Have no fear, the ST posts at about 10 AM every day. If it's going to be later I'll normally let you know like the other day when I had to flip-flop my schedule due to work.

Since this was a bit of a short week, I'm gonna go ahead and award everybody 5 XP for a good first week. I was going to wait and award 10 XP next week, so that you guys could all finish getting your sheets together, but I'll just go ahead and congratulate you-all now. Just be sure not to add the 5 XP from last week until after your sheet is finalized.

Also, if you haven't already, make sure to include an XP log in your sheet. It can be as simple as

"Spent 10 XP - Strength 2"
"Earned 5 XP - 5/5/15"

Just so long as it's easily-read. So again, on 5/5/15 I'm awarding you all 5 XP.

Ok. Sorry that I little bit worried.

And I have an announcement to make:
By ST's approval, I change my character's Seeming from Ogre to Darkling.
I will change my Mien shortly.
Sorry for the inconvenience caused.

For my last post, I'm assumning that we can work things in that aren't confirmed canon, just to add a bit of flavour and to save Xildur and XQbitor going househunting. If not, I'll rewrite/delete stuff as appropriate.

That's fine by me. If you're unsure the scope of things you add, just ask me first but stuff like that is fine. If you haven't been introduced to an NPC that does it already, I don't mind working around player needs.

Also, for clarification, if you need to do something downtime worthy, please post it in your private thread. It can be something as simple as "Mechanic needs to pick up a set of woodworking tools." or "Dr. Pain wants to talk to his Police Contacts about those bodies down by the river.". Things that don't need to be scenes are fine to be posted there.

As a head's up, I'm doing Mother's Day-related things in the morning and then I work all evening, so I'll be doing updates tomorrow morning. Have a Happy Mother's Day to all of you.

Welcome to Monday! So, XP awards...

Zareaus, Windmill Hunter, and Xildur have all met the minimum requirements of 3 posts a week and earn 5 XP.
XQbitor, you only posted once, so unfortunately you only earned 2 XP. Haven't seen you for a couple days, hopefully everything's alright.

As a reminder guys, the only books allowed to pull things from are World of Darkness (not God Chronicle or Mind's Eye Theatre), Changeling the Lost, Rites of Spring, Lords of Summer, Winter Masques, Autumn Nightmares, Goblin Market, and Victorian Lost. If it is not in one of these books you MUST contact me and ask permission BEFORE putting it on your sheet. A post asking about it should be put in your private thread and include a page number as well as justification for why you want it/think it's appropriate for your character. I'm not really hard to convince, but I am a stickler for people following instructions, so please please please remember to do this.

Now, on advancing things: If you want to buy something and your character has not in-game earned it (such as Allies 1 Police without a scene talking up a policeman at a bar as an example), you should give me justification in your private thread for how you earned it. I will review these every Monday and if I feel it's logical you'll be approved. An example for asking for something is below.

"Georgia wants to learn Fighting Style: Archery 2 (Armory, pg. 208). I'd like to have her go to a local range every night and start practicing with a bow. She has Resources 2, so she should be able to afford a Compound Bow (Armory, pg. 90). Her Strength is 3, so that's what I'd like the bow's draw to be set at."

My reply would probably look like this:

"That's fine, you have the Resources and they do sell compound bows at most major sporting goods places that are good enough for what you want to do. Deer Track Archery is open until 8, so you should be fine getting in a couple hours there. Here's a link with some pictures of what the shop looks like, which is on their site for more information you may need. http://deertrackarchery.com/images/a...oundShop.shtml. Also, the first two dots you're fine buying, but 3-5 you'll need to spread out a bit more. Even if you can afford them, you can't go up quite so fast, so just make sure to spread your points out a bit or save them up."
