OOC: Out of Game Discussions

The headline in the newspaper reads 'Huge Hounds Haunt Hockomock'. The police have closed the case as only being coyotes and a crazy farmer. But you know better when it comes to stories that don't seem quite right. Where do these black hounds come from, what do they want (besides their nightly chicken dinner)? And how do you stop them?

Is it okay to use the quickfire method for 7th ed. character creation?

I've only finished going through the first seven chapters to see which skills I've used successfully. I have to go through everything, or I'll never remember which ones they were. I don't know when I'll have time to finish, but I'll roll for increases for the ones I've found so far now. How free am I to determine what happened in the years since the last adventure? I'd like to think Eddie and Alyssa are married and have a family now.

Spot Hidden (55% skill) XP check:
Mr. Handy rolled 1d100:
84

Spot Hidden increase:
Mr. Handy rolled 1d10:
6

Handgun (60% skill) XP check:
Mr. Handy rolled 1d100:
14

First Aid (55% skill) XP check:
Mr. Handy rolled 1d100:
59

First Aid increase:
Mr. Handy rolled 1d10:

Psychology (40% skill) XP check:
Mr. Handy rolled 1d100:

Listen (55% skill) XP check:

39

Library Use (25% base skill) XP check:

Keeper, will it be a problem if I play a journalist from the Bridgewater local? If not, do you have a name for the newspaper?

@Wruter: That is fine, the 1920s was a time when little newspapers were popping up here and there all over the place, or you can work for the regular newspaper as a freelance journalist. I'm pretty easy going when it comes to that.

@Helpless: If your Str & Dex are = or > than Size then you move 9, If 1 is => then its 8, if neither are then its 7.
Your Str is higher than Size but Dex is less so you move 8.

@Handy: You can continue to work on the stats as we go along. I don't think we should hold up the game. I should have done a better job of marking when you passed a check. As for Alyssa, I think you should talk to the owner of the character. With her losing her memory she may want to go down that path to recovering it. But its been 6 years since Rockport. A lot could have happened. I'm not against it, but I don't feel right agreeing to such a major change on someones character without their consent.

Yeah, I don't want to do that either. Tabs hasn't been around for a month or so, and Alyssa's original player is long gone. For now I can just leave that part of Eddie's background undefined.

I was waiting on wruter to post his character, but tomorrow I'm going to get things started either way.

Wruter, please post your character and a quick intro into the IC thread.

Thanks,

Great start guys, lets keep it up.

The Dr. Just joined us, and so we have a full game. I think we are just waiting on HoneyDog and the Doctor to state their intentions.

You can stay and study, go with Eddie to the Farm or do something else if you like, just let me know what.

Handy, if you are all done with those rolls you put in the Character thread, I'd like to delete those to keep that area clean and easier to reference.

Yes, I'm done with them, but it might be better to move those posts to this thread rather than delete them entirely.
