Since I've been asked some question about intimidate I'd like to state that it'd be really, really nice if the three people who trained the skill didn't take having it as an excuse to try using the "make the enemy surrender" option every time one gets bloodied. Just... keep it down to situations where it seems apropiate rather than spam it, m'kay?

We have options?

Seriously though, I picked stuff because it felt 'in-character', not because of rules. Until you got involved, at least (:

I'm not sure how "posessed by an air spirit" translates to "grew some hair" but whatever, if you want me to make fun of you I am not going to complain :P

@up - my discretion is that if you're fine with it then I'm fine with it.

It's magical hair. The Djinn was very proud of his beard.

Ah, my first post IC will be coming up after work.  Gotta keep coding for now...

@slave, Re: your rescue: If you're going to put up your background IC, go ahead and incorporate how you were captured and rescued, I'll leave this to your imagination.

I'll admit to having 16 Cha, 10 in diplomacy and 13 in insight.  Can I use that to sense the intention of the guards and react accordingly?

Side point, should I keep OOC comments in here via quoting to keep the flow or should I just use the OOC channel for that?

For sensing intention of the guards you'd roll insight - d20+skill modifier (not passive insight mind you). and keep OOC in OOC

Edit: Keep OOC in OOC but rolls relating to IC actions go into quotes in IC posts.

Could I also use Insight to sense motive, even though I'm not the one directly interacting with the NPCs?

Sure, nothing prevents you from eyeballing them from back row and trying to figure them out.

BTW, Isirius has CHA 19. He may well be best suited to deal with NPCs socially, but unless approached personally, he'll only speak for the group if either the group or a leader acknowledges his interference is called for.

Hmmmmmmm this isn't so much about raw CHA as it is about the skill, is it?

Anywho: since I'm new to the D&D system and feel, and since we as a group have spent some IC time together previously, I'd like to have an idea of our group dynamics. I'd appreciate it if everyone would just describe in a couple of sentences how he thinks he/she'd fit into the group, and how they feel about playing this part (in this group). Also, please state who you think would be acting as the group's leader. Don't overthink anything, just go with your gut feeling.

To kick off: Isirius is excited to be travelling in a group again for the time being - most of his quest time he spent on his own. Barring anyone displaying streaks of malginity or brashness, he'll get along with the others just fine, being interested in who they are, what they do and what makes them tick, almost like a combined psychologist and keeper (as in zookeeper). Any task he feels he has to perform, he does so to the best of his abilities. He will not be the one to start a fight, but if hell breaks loose, he is relentless and unnervingly effective.

Based on what I've read so far, both IC and OOC, I'd say Gosok would be the pack leader. I'd wager this will have been some unspoken thing, something that just naturally grew to be so, and very swiftly too.

Quill, being a kobold, is naturally averse to working alone. She gravitates towards generally like-minded groups and offers her not-insubstantial combat skills in return for travelling company and a share of any spoils. She tends to be rather protective of her group, but might not have any loyalty to any one group, exactly.

Generally, she'll guard you with her life, until something better comes along.

Marek shoots lasers and tries to buff people in the battlefield, but is otherwise quite quiet and plays a mostly observational role because Deva and the whole I-have-too-many-lives-to-care-too-much-about-details type of attitude.

So I'm likely to roll for insights as well.  Just need to do this when I get home from work... and after you guys do like 1432562198456 interactions already.  =.=

Haha, thats why you keep the thread open at work. Problem solved. Gosok is does the same thing, except I stand next to the defender [WhyCantIHoldAllTheseBuffs.jpg]
Attitude wise Gosok is for most purposes mute. When he does speak.... just don't give him a reason. He is straightforward and doesn't like to scheme, but that's not to say he doesn't prefer to plan ahead.
