You don't have anything to apologize for, TheCavalry, everyone is a newbie at some point. And you haven't done anything wrong,with S+E so don't worry.

Looking forward to playing with you. Very Happy

M finally found the NPCs list. Fair warning: Marvelous isn't going to have a lot of pity for Fluffy Crust's "unluckiness". Which you may have gathered, of course. Just sayin'.

Oh?

*ten minute guitar solo*

We're glad to have you.  Everyone's gotta start somewhere and this seems to be a pretty laid back group.  You'll do fine, don't worry.  Besides, I sometimes make the most hilarious of mistakes as some of these players can attest to.  Just learn to go with the flow.

ZamuelNow wrote:Curious about the choice of Sweet and Elite.
Crystallite suggested it a few pages back, and again, it seemed like something that fit the flavour I was going for- some pony who has made a conscious effort to be known and liked. If it seems superfluous/complicated for a newbie though, I'm fine with removing it.

I think Sweet and Elite might be slightly "incorrect" for the campaign.  A lot ponies in town liking you simply comes from plot and backstory.  S+E is more of "big" notoriety.  Ponies from outside the town know about you.  You're a rock star.  You're mayor of the town.  You're the literal princess of the campaign setting. that sort of thing.  I think the stuff you've mentioned for your character don't need S+E here.  If you want her to be well known then you should keep it.  However, some of the benefits may be muted by who your character is.

Will your character use Memory to Mist?
MtM is mostly a backup. Again... I'm new. Not just to Pony Tales, but table top RPGs in general. Memory to Mist seemed like a handy way to 'reload' if I got outted; an, given how I'm building with some stealth abilities in mind, I thought waiting nine minutes then mind wiping would be an easy way to escape. Again though- if I'm misinterpreting, or it's inappropriate, I'll change it.

It's perfectly acceptable, just noting two things.  First is the ripple effect such a move causes when used.  Second is the simple question of "would she pull the trigger?"

Oh?

Yes. Unless she turns out to be another Bad Luck Talent (doubtful) Marvel is simply going to feel like Fluffy hasn't seen *anything* yet. And even if she does turn out that way she's still going to feel that way at first; and then suspicious when she starts to catch on, and then finally a little more compassionate when she somehow confirms it.

EDIT: How about starting soon?

Attempted to add all of the new arrivals to the plot, including Fairy Charmer. The last bits of the build can be updated as we go.

Spoiler about lack of brain-power still applies, as evidenced by the fact I did not originally notice Marvelous was speaking to me.

I will have my latest post edited by 11:30...central time...to reflect this new information.

Now that I sit and think about it, I'm going to specifically state that Fairy Charmer shouldn't have Sweet and Elite. Her usage of it doesn't actually apply to the campaign. Plus, that'll give points for other things.

As far as the order Fairy Charmer was sent to pick up, I'll allow TheCalvary to come up with the specifics.

Fairy Charmer should probably be added to the cast list on the front page now, right?

Eeyup.  Minor procrastination since I intended to get more NPC pictures completed.  Bare minimum, Fairy Charmer should be added by the end of the day even if the NPCs aren't created/uploaded.

Across all of my campaigns I will be adding a free default attack for all characters regardless of their build:

[0] Basic Blow - Standard Attack
Deal 1d6 damage to target creature.

For campaigns with tabletop rules, this will be Melee range.  While this can not crit and is relatively unimpressive, it is a option for characters to use regardless of role since they should theoretically have some way to defend themselves.

Huh. Coulda sworn I'd already deleted it. Well, it's gone now anyway, so...yeah.

And... I've found the pony creator, but can't get the image saved for some reason. I just placed the creation box code on the sheet instead as a compromise for the moment.

It's using the previous editor build.

-Fairy Charmer has been added to the first post.
-The Glow Triplets and Apple Bright now have images
-Setting info: The players (and NPCs) that are native to the town would have some knowledge of the concept of natural bad luck due to Fluffy Crust. That said, Marvel's sheer amount of it might catch them off guard.

DOUB<LE PO>ST

I have come to the realization that speaking with Birthday Cake is a bit like being slowly overwhelmed by a sweet old lady's insistence that you keep having "just one more slice of cake, dearie".

What kind of check could I do to remember if there are any jobs available? Is there a check I can make?

I'll let you freelance a bit of worldbuilding based off of what you know about the town and what you know about the character asking.

Since we're still pretty early on in the campaign, I want to know everyone's opinion on this skill setup: http://ponytales.forumotion.com/t858p30-a-brand-new-system-official-announcement#77990

I like your skill system, and I'm not certain if the new system could hinge on it's different number system or not, so I'm a little hesitant to use it just yet.

Mechanics. While technically using magic to do so, it's a feat of coordination and dexterity. DC 20 for something serviceable but may want to replace eventually. DC 25 for "good as new, if not better".

Triplets.

Though on that note, while they're keeping the same text color (they do sound the same), I probably will give them different fonts since they look different so telling them apart isn't hard in-universe.
