OOC Thread

Once the game gets going, here's the OOC thread.

I'm PMing people as completed characters get posted with some info on what's going on and your connections to the adventure.

Alright, we have all four characters. Awesome. We can begin.

I'm aiming to make this campaign a sort of indirect sequel to one I ran a few years ago, which took place in 1898: not as much following on with the central threat of that campaign, but using a few of the same characters. Some PCs and NPCs from that game will show up in various capacities in this game. The Golden Dawn was a major facet of that game: it's around in this game, though whether it'll be as major is another matter entirely. If you're familiar with the history of that group, the main difference is that William Wynn Westcott, one of London's coroners, is still in the organization (in reality, he was forced out), although there is still the conflict between two factions as occurred in reality in 1899-1900. But all that might not really matter too much.

I'm also going to try a little experiment with multiple threads, like is going on in the Dr. Who game, but not to that degree: basically, one of the characters will be in a different thread and will come at things from a different angle then the others, but then of course they'll eventually merge.

Richard Maurice isn't quite old enough to have an age penalty to his stats. That only applies for each full 10 years above age 40, so the first one doesn't kick in until age 50. Since he's 49, he doesn't have to worry about that yet. Also, his +3 EDU also gives him an increase of +15 to his Know score, which becomes 80.

Are we allowed to read the thread we're not in, or only our own?

Right, thanks!

You're welcome! You also get an extra Hit Point as a result, since fractions round up when calculating it.

I suppose it wouldn't hurt too much, as long as you don't do anything foolish like try to act on what transpires in that thread, or let it direct your questioning towards Lord Godfrey, or anything like that.

I suppose I should let you all know what my posting schedule will be like... I'm on night work, and we're currently working a pretty insane schedule, so the majority of the time I'll be posting in the early afternoon. Usually, I keep up on the threads at night, but I can't reply to any of them. Just so you're not wondering why I'm not posting at night... That said, I do have vacation next week, so should be able to post a bit more often then.

I have finished editing my character Gary Cupp. I went a little wild with him, so feel free to do whatever you want with him. Especially his workshop. I think I overdid it. I haven't read any threads yet, so no idea whats going on. Throw me in whenever you get a chance.

Slowing things up a little in the "Meeting" thread as I catch the "Eye" thread up to it. Shouldn't be too long, though.

Was wondering if you can create a thread for timeline. Then we can edit it as we discover stuff and not have it buried in some older locked thread.

Just a thought.

Just have to post this somewhere, to get it out. Just posted my second dice roll, again in the 90s. Just for once, please, can I have a decent roll? :)

I can make the Timeline thread (and any others) Sticky if you like.

I was going to comment on that. Being Call of Cthulhu, Alicia won't be long for the world if she keeps rolling like this. That novel might never get completed. ;)

Although narratively, it does at least make sense. As an East Ender, Alicia probably doesn't recognize high society folks, after all.

No need as of yet, but later as we start getting some more threads, I may ask you to do that.

Quite!

No, she's not an East Ender. She just lives there, and is a middle-class incomer from Scotland. I'm sure she can recognise class, but maybe not so familiar as might like with some of the faces in London society, despite living there and working as a journalist for 5 years.
