Title: Out of Character (OOC) Thread
Post by: Bynw on September 01, 2017, 02:22:57 pm
This is the thread to use to talk about the game(s) but  not in-character. This is where questions can be asked of the rules or any other game related issue.

I have never played this kind of game. Sounds fun. Can you give us a little run down of what is expected of the players.

Yes once I get everything ready to be posted. Most questions will be answered in the Lite Rules postings that will be coming.

You mentioned:
Quote from: Bynw
The Tiny Dungeons RPG is required.

Is this something your players should look into purchasing? If so, recommend me some places where I can get it.

Sure it would give the basic rules that this is based off of and give you more info.  It's available at http://drivethrurpg.com/product/144545/Tiny-Dungeon-Print-and-Play-Bundle (http://drivethrurpg.com/product/144545/Tiny-Dungeon-Print-and-Play-Bundle)

Ooh, interesting!  Downloaded.  ;D

This is also the same website where I found the sound files of medieval ambiance that were designed to help create the sounds of various medieval settings during a gaming campaign. I think I have Medieval Feast, Medieval Village, Medieval City, Medieval Tavern, and maybe one more. I used them as background sound while writing parts of Visionaries. I can't remember the actual titles of the files or who created them, but they are a cool resource.

If you have a DriveThru RPG account that you bought the files from, then you should be able to click on your library and see the details of those files.  If you were curious.

I've been reading the couple of characters that you all have posted so far.  Very cool!

Aha! Found them!  I thought they were all by one company, but apparently not.

I could have sworn there was at least one more, because I thought I had a Village soundtrack that was a little different from the City one, but I guess not.  Maybe I just listened to one but didn't actually buy it, or maybe it was a download from some other website.

OOh I would love to get involved but am too busy and tired at the moment. I worked out that it will be another 7 years before I can afford to retire (unless DH's condition deteriorates but that's not a hoped for solution) so please don't kill each other off before then!

Even if the current party gets annihilated, chances are fair to middling that another campaign will start, with all new characters.  So be of good cheer!  :D

I am not the GM that goes all out to kill the characters. That is our beloved Katherine.

LOL, no, I know that.  You enjoy throwing curve balls at your player characters, but you don't usually try to get us all killed off.

What I meant was, should the current incipient campaign end before revanne has time to join, a new campaign is a fair possibility.  ;)

Oh, come join us Revanne. You know Jorum wants to play.  Write up a quick character sheet and then when you can, perhaps during those late insomnia nights he, or another character of your choice, can portal into the game for a few rolls of the dice anyway.

I was going to look for a picture of a young, brown-haired woman with a single braid, preferably wearing medieval clothing, and post it as a profile photo for my character. One would think it would be relatively easy to find a medievally dressed brunette on Google with a braid (just one) down her back, or over her shoulder, or something!  But no. It would seem that every young female gracing Google Images in quasi-medieval garb is either a blonde or a flaming redhead, and/or has more braids than an octopus has tentacles.  I can just imagine my Aliset at the start of every adventure.  "Excuse me, Bynw, I've got to braid my hair first."

Bynw:  "OK, roll a 2D6 to see how many minutes this is going to take.  No, wait, make that a hundred-sided die.  Two hundred-sided dice if you plan to stick flowers in all those braids too...."

Aliset: "Screw it! Ain't no adventurer got time for that!"   ;D

Or this alternate scenario:

Bynw: "You all wake up with a start, even though it's still an hour from dawn, because your sentry has alerted you that the enemy has snuck up on you unawares and is just now cresting the hill 50 feet away. What are you doing?"

Wash: "I'm grabbing my sword and shield."

Darcy: "I quickly climb up a tree to hide and get a height advantage on our attackers."

Aliset: "I'm still braiding my fluorescent red hair."

Aliset takes an arrow from the exasperated Game Master as the enemy descends upon the campsite....

I have now downloaded the rules.  Hopefully, I won't have too many questions....

I am just home from the dentist, a not so fun way to spend a day off. I read the above and I break into a laugh.
Dear ladies, how I needed that!

Evie see if any of this photos works
One braid but a black and white image from the back  https://www.pinterest.com/pin/457185799646531659/

Burnett, hair may be braided.  https://www.pinterest.com/pin/457185799657256507/

I think her hair is braided.  https://www.pinterest.com/pin/457185799653157886/

My favorite for your Aliset:
A few semi-permenent braids to keep the bangs back. but no time to braid the rest.  https://www.pinterest.com/pin/457185799655146103/

Unless your looking for that true sorcerers look.  https://www.pinterest.com/pin/ASVh4SJja0wK2qlkBi00lfgXvuTsbeVt8lu4FdXm-3eVKH9YxIknalw/

Love it.

Here's a picture with directions for a style involving TWO braids, and it's from the 15th C., so maybe a bit late.   She's shown putting a headdress on over the style, but it might work, and she has brown hair.

Laurna's first link (the black and white picture) comes closest to what I was looking for, plus she's wearing a gown that would fit the right general era too. Although if you look at my character profile, I've added a picture now.... ;)

I didn't see this one before, but this could work also.
