Yeah, thinking it over, I'd like to switch Summer's virtue over from tenacity to magic. Just thinks it suites her better. ( the upgrade doesn't  hurt either Wink )

While this game would still be pbp, something I'd love to try would be for the game to use tabletop combat rules. What's everyone's opinion on this?

I'm a bit mixed on it. On the one hand, it would open up some more options. On the other, I would have to give up Blood weapon, and I'm not sure I want to do that.

Out of curiosity, what are your main interests with Blood Weapon?

Couple of different things actually.Mechanically, its a conjured weapon but it's cost is in life points instead of PiPs, which means that it fills a different niche than Form of the Reaper and Staff of Stars, and Eviscerate is pretty cool (5d8 when bloodied)

Conceptually, I figure that Blood Weapon was one of the spells that Summer found in the Life and Death book, along with form of the Reaper, All or nothing, implant Parasite, and Staff of Stars. I like the inherently slightly creepy nature of the spell requiring pain to be summoned and function, and how uncomfortable that could make Summer.

Um...Blood Weapon definitely exists in Tabletop. I'm looking at it right now. Here's what it has listed as the tabletop version.

[0] Blood Weapon - Minor Utility [Inspired by Chris Pauly]
Pay 10 hp. If you do, you conjure a Blood Weapon in your hands. You can dismiss the Blood Weapon as a free action. While you are wielding a Blood Weapon, you cannot use your normal combat talents. Instead you may use the combat talents below.
[+2] Crow Claw - Standard Attack
Range: Melee
Deal 1d12 damage to target creature.
[+1] Douse in Blood - Minor Utility
You lose 5 hp.
[-1] Sanguine Cyclone - Standard Utility
Range: Burst 1
Deal 1d12 to all enemies in burst
[-4] Eviscerate - Standard Attack
Range: Melee
Deal 3d8 damage to target creature. If you are bloodied, deal 5d8 damage to that creature instead.

Aaaaaand finally done!

That took even longer than I though it would.

Meet Birthday Cake, a baker with a bit of a temper, though never an unjustifiable one. She owns a bakery called "The Party" that's more popular with the tourists instead of the townsfolk - though popular enough with them too - and tends to trade in her baked goods for others goods and services around town. In case the bit at the beginning and the combat talents aren't clear, her food is so good she can actually heal you, although she'll always deny that's the case if asked directly.

Version linked is a PDF, but I do have an actually-editable version that I'll post when we get to level 2. PDF keeps the formatting and text choice better, though.

Nice, APW

One thing that occured to me, Birthday Cake is a unicorn, her name used to include "Wish" and its a very small town. You think she and Summer could be related?

You'll have to work things out among yourselves on whether or not you're related. However, there's another thing about Birthday Cake that will some interesting plot quirks and possible reveals. Adding to that, you may have given me an excuse to reuse a NPC that wasn't going to show up in this campaign.

Spellbook won't be needed since I'll be allowing all 8 combat talents by default.

^I'll do some basic editing then, thank you.

@mjh6, that sounds completely logical to me. I'm thinking Summer Wish is Birthday's niece, then?

I haven't forgot about this, just been drained from work. Hope to give Fury and any others interested a chance to join but I'm fine with running a small dedicated group. It's interesting that I'm likely to make a large number of changes to plot structure though I don't see it as a bad thing. Hope to sit down and post the NPC list tomorrow.

Unfortunately, I'm not going to have internet access from about 4 am on Thursday, March 6, to 11:59 pm on Sunday, March 16. Hopefully the campaign isn't ready to start before that.

I think I'll officially designate March 17 as the start date. I like giving people a chance to get signed up and for things to be fleshed out.

Looking forward to starting!

The default setting keeps it private. Many people accidentally forget to revert it when posting, myself included. Storm needs his bio info so I can follow up with the secondary questions. However, I'll go ahead and add him to the first post.

Okay, something has been at the back of my mind since I decided to have a companion. How exactly are we going to work with him? Am I going to be the one controlling him, or are we going to treat him like an NPC that the PH controls? I've seen it work differently depending on the PH...

95% of the time he will be under your control. I tend to leave companions mostly under player control, mooks as a sort of 50/50, and regular NPCs (including things like relatives) up to the GM.

More characters will come in over time and you'll get more details as things progress.  However, I needed to stop procrastinating on this.  Vague to allow things to be open for plot hooks from players but I'm willing to elaborate on most questions.  Going to push the start date to Tuesday so sunbeam can get time to ask questions when he gets back.

Lustrous Ivy:
The town's resident fashionista and seamstress.   Has a tendency to gossip but is also known for being able to keep a secret.

Light Burst:
The excitable and energetic coordinator of the town's athletic events.  Can one pony truly be so happy?

Sun Rush:
Current "mayor" of the town by birth. Quite competitive and loves to explore far reaching lands.  Currently out of town.  Much older than she looks.

Midnight Clover:
Sun Rush's husband and acting mayor in her absense. Athletic and well read, he lacks her wild streak.  Much older than he looks.

Glorious Morning:
Soft spoken caretaker of the town's farm.  Can predict the blooming cycle of the Venin Apple trees within an hour's accuracy.

Dulce Baya:
Whimsical baker and friendly rival to Birthday Cake.  Multilingual.  Refuses to purposely eat anything with Zap Apples in them.

Burning Intuition:
Wealthy owner of a major pharmaceutical company.  Has shown an interest in Birthday Cake's recipes.

Fluffy Crust:
Newcomer and off kilter apprentice to Dulce Baya.  Sometimes exceedingly unlucky.  Can already predict the blooming cycle of the Zap Apple trees within an hour's accuracy.

Bitter Medicin:
Grumpy but well meaning owner of the local clinic.  One of the oldest members of the town.
image forthcoming - earth pony

Glow Triplets:
Gold, Silver, and Copper Glow act as the town's weather team when they aren't helping on the farm.  When they aren't providing help with repairs.  When they aren't causing mischief...
