Gaslamp RTD - OOC/Q&A
« on: August 05, 2011, 00:44 »

A while back I picked up on a RP system called Roll to Dodge. The rules are pretty fast and loose allowing for more focus on RP and less on stats, but still subject to whims of the Random Number God. Basic rules are as follows

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

With that out of the way, back to the main topic. Is anyone interested in playing this? I can make any setting you want and will work to make a decent scenario if people show interest. If you are interested, please post your desired setting as well as your vote of interest. If no majority is reached I will pick one at random from generic settings to make a scenario from. I will be using a 3d6 table for anyone concerned by the small 1d6 range.

Sounds interesting enough to try, and I don't have to cough up some complicated character.

Count me in!

Good to hear. I would like at least two more people. Also I need a vote between these 5 themes for the RTD:
  • High Fantasy
  • Dark Fantasy
  • Gaslamp Fantasy
  • Steampunk
  • Science Fiction
If you have a request for an already existing world setting I can take that into consideration as most fit into one of these 5 catagories.

I have fond memories of RTD, although the system I used was a little more elaborate...

Count me in. I vote for whatever everyone else votes for.

Gaslamp or Steampunk for me.

Girl Genius is a great inspiration.

So we have thelaptop, Silhar, Angles, The Page and my brother irl. The votes were 2 Dark Fantasy, 2 Gaslamp and 2 Steampunk. A d3 chose Gaslamp so i'll kill myself tonight to get a proper scenario together. Is there any Gaslamp Fantasy out there other than Girl Genius?

@The Page: We'll I just gave the streamlined version. I support earning skills through repeated actions or luck or whimsy... I just didn't want to scare people off. I also support equipment but in the end its all abstract. A Shotgun will do the same damage as a Sniper rifle on a hit, it's the chance to hit that may vary from weapon to weapon skill. Anyways I'll post the scenario in it's own thread along with what I'll require for a character (Mostly a name, basic description and a preferred specialty. Ill try to assign you basic skills close to what you pick.)

Huzzah, gaslamp.

I'm sure there's plenty gaslamp other than Girl Genius, but you could always just think "Sherlock Holmes with fantascience and magick" and you'll do fine.

Don't worry, PBFs here take a while to move anyway.

Take your time and do an awesome job.  =P

Main post is up and in the future I'd like all OOC questions to be asked here to avoid cluttering the main thread.

Q: I have a question. Do we pick any starting equipment?

A:It'll be random. You'll need to search your surroundings/stash and see what the dice give you. Ill base whatever you find around your skill. And besides even if you get a botched roll you still have your fists and can loot the guards. As you find stuff Ill make an armory spoiler on the first page. Ill also be keeping a character sheet summary at the bottom of each round's report and use the abbr tag to give a short description.
