EQ Fanart rpg character sheets and rules
« on: November 19, 2017, 02:36:35 AM »

!!ATTENTION!! This GAME iS OVER!! info below is no longer valid, accepting no more players as I am playing solo to figure the rules out better!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------


Okay! let's start this! I will be the GM (Game master, the one who runs the game) This is a soft-core RPG so EVERYONE is invited! Here is the game http://www.elfquestfanart.com/index.php?topic=430.0

this game is also a practice of trust, you can lie and the only consequence is YOUR loss of enjoyment... Dice rolling is not necessary but can be helpful, if you don't have a dice nearby you can roll one at any of the multiple "online dice rollers" (just write that to google and you'll find one)  if you roll a dice you need to write the number before your character action. example "5. Marut tries to open open the latch" two times a week I will count all the numbers and IF all the numbers combined are bigger than a number I say before a scene, you unlock a new area! if not, nothing bad happens, you simply fail to open more stuff near the Holt... and since this is a test, no one can die in this game...

Here is one online dice roller, I've set things up for you so you can just click "roll again" to roll your dice https://www.random.org/dice/?num=1

So? are people interested? you can tune in whenever you want and leave if you feel so, no one is forcing you to stay. A couple of times a week the game moves forward, and I would LOVE seeing characters interact with one another! just no sex or gore, and please, be nice...

Those interested can write here the character they play! it can be a cannon character or your own character (or even you in EQ form). if you have any questions ask away!... and don't feel intimidated, it's all going to be very laid back and simply fun!..


Speaking and stuff
easy ways to separate speaking, action, sending and off game (stuff directed to me, like questions), happens like this...

- Action, stuff that character does, body language and such...
Marut strenches as he stands up from the old nest, he was sleeping in...

- Speaking, stuff that character says...
"That sure was a good nap! well, better start hunting soon!.."

- Sending, stuff that character sends, you have to specify if it's a closed sending or an open sending...
Strongbow's closed sending reaches only Cutter..
¤You know, I sometimes hate your guts...¤

Strongbow's sending reaches all...
¤Everyone to Cutter! he needs our help!...¤

- Offgame, something you need to ask me or other players that is not part of your characters action, speaking or sending...
(Hey guys! my character really needs to pee! where do they go to take a leak?)

So that's that! hope you found that useful!...


And again, the RULES!
- Be nice to others
- No killing, gore or sexual stuff (prey animals can be hunted but please keep the violence at minimum)
- Go throw a dice in some online dice thrower if you feel like it, but you don't have to!

they are dice rolls! people who want to throw them, they can! but they are not necessary really, they just help people "unlock" new areas from the mist, but if you don't want to bother rolling dice you can just play! come on! give it a try! with dice or without!...

I'll join! I'm going to play Laluna. To make things easier (and maybe more interesting?), I'm going to play "clean slate", meaning that Laluna doesn't know anybody beforehand, not even Marut! This means her background is also unknown.


Here's her info for this game (a bit different than I usually play!):
Original character info is in black, new stuff (acquired in this rpg) in blue!

Appearance:
- a quite small elf
- dark, purple tinted eyes
- wavy, dark blue hair
- pale skin
- dresses in skins that have been dyed purpleish dresses in brown & grey leather skirt and top, with purple details. Vaeri made her the new clothes when her old ones burned!

Character:
- a bit reserved, but curious
- can be difficult and stubborn sometimes
- is bad at making finite decisions
- is fierce at protecting her friends/tribemates

Skills:
- she can heal moderate wounds with magic, but cannot fix broken bones with it
- knows about healing herbs and other ways of mending wounds too
- has some skill in leather working
- is good at diving

Hobbies/Habits:
- likes to hum by herself
- enjoys swimming
- likes to clean up and organize things, because it helps her relax
- likes to climb trees

Flaws/weaknesses:
- feels empathy toward wounded, even enemies
- can't handle hot weather too well physically
- isn't very good at hunting, so resorts to gathering and sometimes trapping
- cannot send (but can receive sendings just fine)
- can't handle her dreamberries well

Posessions:
- a small stone knife for collecting herbs
- a pouch and a mortar for said herbs
- some healing herbs, enough to make a small batch of salve
- bone needle and string
- a golden mystery scale (from Tidemist)
- a clay urn (human-made)
- a big bone knife (human-made)

Questions!

1. So did I understand correctly, that the dice roll total resets after every week?

2. If the total doesn't add up at the end of the week, do we lose the specific "reward" (like, finding something new at the holt) forever, or can it be achieved later?

3. How many times can a player throw the dice in a week? Or is it just once/week?

Thanks for asking! let me clear things up...

1: yes, the dice rolling event resets weekly.

2: The tribe can achieve the lost reward some time later. if the total of the group dice roll adds up then the tribe gets a new area to explore and adventure in, otherwise they get nothing or might sometimes find items or such to use as they wish.

3: The player can throw a die once per character every week.

I also have a question for the players, should I bring the cannon Elfquest characters to this game as NPCs?... (Non-Player characters, meaning characters that I use)...

Thanks for clearing things up, Berit! I'm okay with canon characters, though I'd really like to see more players, too!  ;D

I'm tempted to give it a try, but i'm always intimidated by RP stuff as I have no experience with it.

Also not good with coming up with characters. Isn't there some kind of worksheet to roll for different character traits? Is that around here somewhere?

No need to be intimidated! I've made this as beginner friendly as possible... and only character sheets you need are the ones you see in this post! I'd actually advice you to create your character's appearance first, in your head or by drawing, what ever feels more natural... some times the personality of a character comes the instant you visualize him/her...  and if it doesn't, as scary as it sound, just bring the character in the game, greatest characters I've known have been created this way.. you let the character grow at his/her own pace...

And don't worry about goofing up, were here to help you out, not swat you down. here is emptied out list you can fill once you have ideas/character gets stuff (skiils, possessions etc) in game, you can just copy paste it and fill it at your own pace. just know we will be more than happy to have you on board!

Looks good! yeah recognitions can happen and are decided between players, nudity is okay as well but no sexual material, if something of that does happen please zoom out ar fade to black from that scene, giving only hints of what is happening... also if this does happen make sure the other player is okay with it! and Tidemist came at a wonderful time as they just discovered a body of water nearby! she can come from there if you so choose!.. you can drop in the game anytime you want! Welcome aboard!...

-Wears mostly dark clothes but likes bright accents. Usually a short, sleeveless shirt or vest, low-hung pants and boots.

- Small knife worn in a thigh sheath on her right leg
- Mottled rust-colored hooded cloak with interior pockets. "Found" in a human village, when not worn serves as bedroll and pack.

Will fill in more as the character develops.

Will also play...

Dusk

Yes!!! More characters the merrier! If you can handle playing with multiple characters, and there is no reason not to try, if it doesn't work out you can always put one on hold and play them seperately, just iform other players about character being on hiatus by noting that character vanished in the mist or that he/she is too busy to be bothered...

Huzzah for bigger tribe!...
