also, what do you mean with "Ich fühle furchtbar" because I´m not sure if you meant I feel terrible or I feel terribly stupid or I am in terrible pain?

post scribtum: MfG Sliver

Posh. Didn't even consider the latter options. Just forgotten the first part and, answering your second question, felt both incredibly silly and disappointed in myself due to having done so - since it's such a fundamental expression... though a polite one, i think. I'm pretty sure you woulnd't have wished to add an impolite expression in so many consecutive posts openly.

Considering that mistake, your lack of understanding, as well as your manner of writing, i'll assume you were posting in a hurry, as to not assume something more offending.


Whatever may've been the case - nevermind now.

It's going too off-topic.

Let us not clog up this thread anymore.

Arcane, hopefully.

Well, there's the link since people want it. Razz  I think. Google Docs changed how it worked since I last really had to share documents so I'm getting used to where they hid the share options.

Edit: Or rather, how they hid the mass sharing in the personal sharing button.

Thank you, that's...

.. oh my gash. No, i'll need to send you my unfinished character sheet right now (PM in a min). Otherwise, you wouldn't believe me how close we've come to creating our mares beforehand/you'll think i've tried to make her like yours on purpose.


Please do not spoil to others until i finish it though! Wouldn't wish for the girl to come out with half the make-up..

The hazard of creating characters in a vaccuum. There's the chance two people use the same basic idea.

Hey, Sunbeaaa~am!

Going back to those aortas - Guess what! You're not having one, but TWO self-combusting magicians on board. Hope you keep these bandages handy.

EDIT:

Well, now that i look closely, they're not that alike... still, the big, eye-catching ones are there.

No, I am American (Californian, to be precise). I was just looking for an exotic "Frankenstein"-sounding name.

Looking over the characters, I noticed that none of them seem particularly Brawn-focused. I just hope that our adventure doesn't come to an unfortunate end when none of us can break down a door while being pursued by horror-terrors.

Seems to be a common theme all of a sudden, all brains and no brawn. Since it didn't get answered last time, I'll ask again: is the game already full? Because I did have some interest, was just waiting to see if the new people were going to sign up... and then a bunch of old guys signed up as well. Lynt.

It's not quite closed yet. I'll admit it's a bit more than I expected, but by no means more than I can handle. If you're willing to help bring some brawn to this table of nerds, I'll be happy to run for you as well.
Although, I'm going to say that there can only be one more player since a large party decidedly negates the CoC feel.
If we get a couple more, we COULD split the players into separate teams...

Post  A1C Bronymous on Mon Jun 29, 2015 3:06 am

Well, I'm probably not going to build a whole new character, and the character I had for the other Lovecraftian themed game doesn't work without the other PC in the duo. I'll probably be reviving Flashpoint, who is good for brawn, or Cobalt (F), who is a more interesting concept.... but wouldn't help balance stats in the slightest.

Neither of those sheets have been updated in some time, so the one I submit will be different, but those will give you a good idea of what I'm leaning towards.

EDIT:
I also have Bleeding Heart and the twins, who would be a good fit for the theme, as well as handful of old LL characters I could rehash into Ponies, but I think for brawn's sake Flashpoint is the top candidate.

I agree. I'd say with 6, it's already gonna feel excessive. Unless... we decide to make it a high-risk campaign and agree to have people get easily non-functional due to their mistakes in-game.

What do you all think about it?

Alternatively, that, if you're really feeling up to it.

Since the original group size was meant to be 3-4 players, wouldn't a 3/3 split that we could afford with Bronymous good enough?

It's been a while since I run a split campaign, but I've done it before. Whether I should make the two separate or be in the same universe is another matter. I'm going to say right now that not having a brawn character will not hinder the group too badly. There will be some hinderance, but it shouldn't be too much of a problem overall.

I don't like the idea of characters getting put out of commission easily. It is the CoC way, but we're not playing CoC, we're playing Ponytales which works off of a whole other paradigm. Constant rebuilding of characters is also annoying and a long process.

In the end, I'm going to say that once you and bronymous submit your characters, I'll look them over and try to allocate roles accordingly. There's only one healer and one brawn character, making divisions difficult, though fights won't be too frequent considering what the setting is.

I see... if push comes to shove, how should we split?

If push comes to shove, I'm thinking Eaglesong/Aurora/Torque, and (Probably)Flashpoint/Whatever you come up with/Kunolf.
The first team has Eaglesong as semibrawn and healer, with Aurora as primary mage and Torque for precision and horsesense, and the second team has flashpoint as primary muscle, your character as mage, and Kunolf as precision.
What do you think?

It sounds almost exactly as what i've wanted to propos myself. However, i have just a little request. As i've mentioned in one of my earlier posts, i was expecting to end up with Torque and Eaglesong in the first place and i prepared for that. Would it be a problem if i switched places with Aurora? Of course, if Caden doesn't have anything against it.

I can make that happen, as long as Caden doesn't mind. My plot is malleable.

Is this still open? Been stealthing for a new pbp and finally got a character ready. Since it looks like you're missing some muscle, I came up with a 9 brawn drake to fill the spot.

Ehhh, sorry but I'm extremely iffy on adding someone new.
On the other hand, team eagletorqueterrastial needs muscle.

I'll wait and see. Your character seems reasonable.

This game's initial prognosis had 3-4 players, now it's 6 and we actually got the muscle promised by Bronymous in one group, while having a capable athletics/acrobatics Eaglesong in the other.

As much as this one might be over the limit now, if you're worried about not being able to start soon - be at ease.

I was in a similar situation like you, meaning i joined here and started actively looking for games very recently - and it took, like, just over a week to get engagements?

Worry not. Games pop up. For sure this one's not going to be your only chance if that's what you're thinking.


EDIT:


ALSO, Sun Sets by Bronymous has lost 2 players recently and is looking for some now. It's missing some muscle as well. Your character would probably be welcome. How about you ask there?

I'm sure something new will pop up soon enough. Keep looking, yeah?

I would be willing to trade with him. This campaign was partially about drawing in new players, and I definitely have a lot on my to-do list right now, so if Alene and faege are down I'd be fine with swapping places.

Oh my... i do hope Faege accepts my spot in Sun Sets instead - the one of which i spoke of in the edit of my last post.

It may sound selfish of me, i know, but i would've been mighty happy to have you here. Especially now that i went out of the way and pleaded in order to be in the group with you and Lyntermas...


Others - do not take it as an offence, please, but i won't hide that out of the quite... specific bunch of characters this team consists of, Eaglesong sounds very reasonable to me and i like that a lot.


She just seems like the humble, everyday pony type that among OCs is so scarce.

Moreover, that would be even more fitting here, as progression from seemingly casual life to insanity has a much greater dramatic potential.

To be fair, humble, everyday sorts aren't typically good PC material. Plus this system rather encourages specialists who know their fields. But, I see your point. Razz

That said, to the earlier team swap, I'm largely neutral. If it's what's preferred, go for it.

I'm... going to let you guys work it out. But I was the last one in, and I did say I was looking to let new people in, and he already HAS a character ready, whereas mine needs to be tweaked....

...And honestly, I was kind of hoping to be playing on the same team as Lynt, since we do well in collaboration. So more team dynamics screwed around with. So if you want to give him the slot, I would agree.

Okay, this is a bit more complicated than I expected.
Bronymous is okay with being dropped, if Faege is okay with taking his place. Otherwise, he wants to be on the same team as Lyntermas because they've got good group dynamics.
Terrestial wants to go with Sunbeam, since he likes Eaglesong as a character.
Caden and Lynt are largely chill with anything.
Sliverbrony has yet to state an inclination.

That means Bronymous' character can go with Torque (Lynt), with Caden as magic support.
Terrestial's charcter goes with Eaglesong (Sunbeam) and Kunolf (Sliver).

Faege I'll keep in reserve in case something comes up and one of the players are unable to continue. His character is easy enough to slot in.

Unless someone has any issues with this, this will be the team lineup.
