General OOC Thread

Hello Gang!

Just a couple quick things...

Please feel free to start Threads here if you have a topic that's not already open. In one of my current games we have threads for cool pictures, music we like, etc. Don't feel like you have to, but it's cool if you do.

Yeh a 50 year old fat guy said cool...

Remember that some players prefer not to discuss anything about their personal life. This is completely fine. We just all need to be respectful of each other. If someone does not reply to your thread about where they live, don’t get upset.

I live in Houston, Texas

This is the internet…whatever you put out here is OUT HERE for the world to see.

I will be editing your Charter posts to put the Sheet link in so it is the SAME for everyone. In a game this size, consistence helps me a lot. Please remember this when you post and read the posting instructions in rules. I have a MS Word® document called Post Started that has the stuff that I always start with and just cut-and-paste.

When you feel your sheet is done, please say so in your Character thread. I am checking sheets today, and will do so each day until you are ready.

Thanks again! Remember RULE NUMBER 1 is always: Have a great time!

If you don’t love this stuff then why do you play?

DiG

EDIT: Oh hey, also please tell me in your Character thread WHAT name your Character is going to go by. Again, just be consistent please. Nick names are fine...whatever you like.

Duct Tape

Duct Tape (Or Duck tape, for those rambunctious ducks)

Yeh, Duct Tape… Really, I AM NOT ANAL! No, really…

In a game where resources are finite (no more factories turning out roll after roll of duct tape anymore) we need to do something, right? And I don’t want to keep track of how many inches you use, do you? I did not think so.

And I am guessing there will be other similar items down the road. If you think of them, just let me/us know.

So how about this; we will use something I will call USE UNITS (UU).

A roll of Duct Tape is 2’ x 60 Yards (180 Feet). I am going to set the AVERAGE use at 3 feet. This means that 1 roll has 60 uses. Sometimes you will use more, sometimes less, but ALWAYS 1 UU minimum. Perhaps you want to bind someone’s hands and feet. That would take 2 UU.

This way we (well by we I mean you) just keep track of UU’s and when 60 are spent you’re out of tape. I hope this seems reasonable to everyone. At least it’s simple.

As for someone breaking out of bound hands, let’s do a DC15 (STR) for 1 UU. Have you ever tried it? Then lets ADD +3 per each additional UU used, so someone bound with 3 UU’s of tape would need a DC21 STR check to get out.

We will set a MAX of +9 to that, or 4 UU's = DC 24. After all, you can only do so much, right?

I am VERY OPEN to your thoughts on this, and once decided I will post it under RULES.

DiG

Having specific duct tape rules is probably the greatest thing I have ever heard of.

Emma's got duct tape, she just needs WD40 to be able to fix anything ever.

Sounds great, actually, though the notion of tying people up is already concerning to me!

Naturally duct tape is a popular free item. It is the force that binds the universe, so its nice to get it in a portable size.

As for auto-filling skills, you have to type the first the letters of the key ability score as follows:

Str
Dex
Con
Int
Wis
Cha

If you do that in the appropriate line then you will get an auto add for the skills.

From my OTHER D20 Modern game

I do know that you MUST have the skill modifier for the skill to STAY on the sheet, like INT or STR, etc.

Just an FYI...

On your PC Sheets. there are little check boxes. If you UN-check them it removes unused Weapon and armor fields, making your sheet shorter.

Actually you already gave us more duct tape per roll, referring to page 117 of the d20 Modern Core Rulebook in the General Equipment descriptions "A roll provides 70 feet of tape, 2 inches wide."

So, essentially you gave us 37 more UU's using the 3 feet rule for the bound characters. An that's what I meant by more uses. lol

Well, nobody ever said (with a straight face mind you) that d20 Modern was truly 'accurate' to real world terms in things.

So, does that mean we don't have 180 feet rolls of duct tape?
