Okay, now that I'm back, I'm going to be changing up a few things, and I know there is at least a small handful of you out there that care of the content I put forth so I figure this is a good way to get it in the eyes of, well, everyone.
So, the old
Blorbs 2.0 will be starting, like, tomorrow I guess, trying to get re-familiarized with my laptop after a week hiatus. Sometime between then and now I'll finish drawing the blorbs that I'm going to accept, and then when I know you guys have your groups in check, will begin making the instances for your groups, and draw an update each time I'm able AND a group has had a command given from each member, or a note from any member that can't for some reason attend at the moment.
Scion will be going on Fridays, however, due to a mixture of things, including trouble with getting everyone around, down time between sessions, some miscellaneous player problems, and such, I'm going to be restarting the campaign, in a full restart. Everyone will be able to make new characters, and pantheons that were claimed will be opened up again. However, there will be some slight changes in what pantheons you can be as I'll be using an aforementioned different setting in a Post-Ragnarok world. I'll include maps and information on it in full when I can get it all around, so you know what you're getting into. Players who were in so-much-as one of the old campaign's sessions will be given of course, first pick of pantheons ( again I'd prefer only one person per pantheon ), and will also be given access to a nice bonus XP boost.
They will be given a choice, however. If they do not want to redo a visitation in the new setting with new lore, they can take the higher beginning XP package of 14, OR the average of new player's visitation XP rewards+4. OR, if they choose to do their visitations again, they will get a +4 XP bonus on top of normal XP gained from the visitation. Lovely.
I'm going to try to get Turt into doing DnD again, because my cat is too fun to put down. Failing that... no I probably won't be hosting one, as I'm going to stretch myself to my GMing fullest with Blorbs, Scion, and...
I want to do an actual, good old fashioned, RP, set in my Noir Vigilance world, either the RP that I've tried before, or something similar. Probably something different, but similar. For those who haven't heard me refer to Noir Vigilante, here's the old OOC. It has a shit-ton of information on the world. I will not likely be using the trait system, unless there is popular support for it. If there IS popular support for it, I'll likely tweak it if only just a bit.
I have another setting I've wanted to do, but never got off the ground, in a Steampunk China setting, similar to the wonderful and underrated Jade Empire game. Same setting? Pffffft, no, but I did enjoy the feel, and expanded on it tremendously. Also fleshed out things on that Open Palm / Closed Fist system they had that I felt they executed poorly as a traditional good / evil thing, despite other stuffs. Here's the OLD AS HELL interest check. As you can see, it ALSO had a trait-like system. I used to really love those things, and still kinda think they can work, but I know they aren't for everyone.
As with the Noir Vigilante idea, traits will only be used if there is popular support, or at least popular interest in trying it out. Gives it a more table top feel, you know?
Also, you may be wondering why put that RP thing in here instead of an interest check thread like it obviously belongs in.
Two reasons, one, this is barely an interest check, in-so-much-as it being an interest check for said RP isn't the focus of the thread. Secondly, I generally like you spammers and if there's anyone I'd want to have in it, it's you guys. Yes, this is probably a bad judgement call, but fuck you.
Lastly, I've a side project related to Blorbs that I'm going to be trying to get working, or give up if it's ultimately beyond my skills. More on this later if I can find people more capable than I who would be willing to help me, or something along those lines. This will be a... low ranking activity on the list.
Anyway, I think that covers it.
It's good to be back.
For only the blorbs, I imagine.
Can I keep my Irish girl? :< (I never updated her with XP I don't think so the CS is still the basic)
And daww I dislike losing the progress turt's and my chara made.
Welcome back :D
Spam Talks Philosophy 3rd Edition
Ohhi. Welcome back to the land of Spam.
I'm still on board for both the Blorbs and for Scion. Since I only did my visitation I'll probably just choose to reuse the same character, unless something about your pantheon changes makes that option impossible.
Did you know we have a Writer of the Month contest? Come join it.
WOTM #26: Evil Wins is open and accepting entries through June 4th.
On board for Blorbs.
If I may.
I suggest picking a day for each task and doing them on those days.
Like Blorbs on wednesday; RP on Friday.
Excited for a new Scion campaign. Hopefully we'll get more available and dedicated players. Last time too many dropped out/couldn't make it.
The man who claims to rule and teach
Is only master for the rich
And anyway succumbs
To the laws of nature in the endSlow decay and rest
As we're running fast,
And the mighty ones are nothing
But the last ones.If you give the world a chance
It will beat you down to your knees.
If you try to fight it back
It will beat you again and again.Everything is a weapon if you hold it right.Just a few facts that I thought you should know...
Life increases your chances of dying,
so why are you trying at all?
On a walk in the summer sun you're more likely to be in a homocide,
not to mention the cancer you'll get and the light waves frying your eyes.
As you're breathing this air,
you're increasing your chances of getting diseased,
so retreat in your house with your spouse,
the one person most likely to kill you.
Imagine a leaf as it falls to the ground
whining about an obstruction on the way down,
curling itself to shield from the wind so hopelessly.Life is a lesson
You learn it when it's over
Scion will be fridays, Blorbs will be maybe once a day per group, RP will be... not sure.
As for Turt's DnD, I'mma keep asking for Wednesdays from him on that
