Re: [IC Chap 1 - The Alameda Kono All Star Team]

I was going to jump to something that would move the plot forward in a specific way, but if you wanted to sneak into Chicago to do some research, we could quickly do that first. It would only take a few posts. It's a cheap bus ride into Chicago and easily possible. We'd still roll for the o...

Re: The Bullpen - OOC

Some clean-up: 1) Max, can you move 20% out of Cthulhu Mythos? 2) Eddie, can you Bold one of your Backstory points? (See (8) Key Connection in the conversion list, above) 3) I'm going to muck with your Backstories once, as a start. I think this is a good reflection of how you've changed recently: MA...

Question on the die roller

Hi all,

Is there any write-up on how the in-forum die roller works? It seems strange to me. When I resubmit a post, it will re-roll? And sometimes the roll doesn't go through, and it just shows as an integer starting from 0 and going up.

I must be doing something wrong.

Re: The Bullpen - OOC

I'll be posting instructions for experience, changing gear, and upgrading to 7th Edition here. But I'll wait until you two have put your character sheets in the appropriate thread first.

Re: The Bullpen - OOC

Yeah, I'll get you two to redo your experience rolls for sure, and will give you two experience rolls in certain skills to reflect the "Escape from the Asylum" sessions we also played. We also need to reduce your Sanity somewhat. And apply a few changes to the character sheets to reflect 7...

Re: Howdy

I don’t see King of Chicago in the graveyard... I hope it hasn’t been lost? Handy, take a look - do you see it? If so, maybe the permissions are incorrect? I’m logged in using the same name I used as Keeper, and I’ve scoured the forums for it.

Re: IC: The Penhew Foundation - Andrei, Caroline & Timour

Andrei swiftly moves over to Timour as he unrolls the scroll. He grabs Timour's shoulder, then relaxes once he sees that it's in Arabic. Nevertheless, he shakes his head in frustration. "I think you would have learned by now that words can be more dangerous than weapons, Timour." Andrei sl...
