    [WFRP] Down and Out in Altdorf [OOC]

    The Pitch:
    Sandbox-style game of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, 2nd Edition. The game starts in Altdorf, but you can go wherever your rat-catching, bone-picking heart desires if you can scrape up a few Karls and find your way there. The game starts as soon as someone posts a complete character sheet, and subsequent posters will meet that first poster in-character. Recruitment continues until we have four players.

    Character Creation Guidelines:
    Roll yer name an' career an' all da gubbinz, ya git! There's a good character generator here, just make sure you choose a random background. Elves can go without a distinguishing mark at their option; all others must roll at least once. If you re-roll multiple times to get the character you want, I won't know, but you'll be a bad person forever and all time if you do it.

    Edit: In-character thread is up here. Starring:
    Anton85 as Albrecht Kappalmuller, male human bailiff
    The Digger as
    Solveig Hockschwarzer, female human vagabond
    Blackrat as
    Norgrim Enlagson, male dwarf soldier
    and Walking Dad as Gustav Feder, male human boatman

    Hey

    Hi, my name is Anthony and I would love some great WHFRP action. I haven't played the game before, but am an experienced RPer and understand the tone of the game. I randomly generated my character (Human Bailiff) at the site you provided. How do you want me to post said character? Anything else I need to know? Anything you would like to know?

    Hi
    Solveig is a human female vagabond. She earns a crust by dancing in the taverns around town. She comes from Nordland and has spent time in Kislev before reaching the Empire. She may not be entirely honest!

    Solveig already has a decent Strength so I will go with whatever you decide - but I must admit it would be nice to have a SB of 4!!
    Not knowing just how the program worked, I flipped a coin. You now have a Strength score of 43! May the will of Ranald ever favor you thus.

    Excellent! Please post your character sheets here. As long as I have all of your character's info from the character creation process, you're good to go.

    We'll use the advanced armor rules, and all advanced combat actions are in, but I won't make you track encumbrance. If I think the amount of stuff you're carrying strains credulity, and tell you so, you're welcome to calculate out your encumbrance number with the game's rules and prove me wrong. Just don't try to haul three orc corpses and a life-sized statue of the Emperor back to town on your back, and we won't even need to reference it.

    Not that you have to format it this way, but here's a sample character sheet in a readable format.

    A 1, W 10, SB 3, TB 3, M 4, Mag 0, IP 0, FP 2
    Skills: Blather, Common Knowledge (the Empire), Dodge Blow, Evaluate, Gossip, Perception, Read/Write, Search, Speak Language (Reikspiel), Trade (Cook)
    Talents: Acute Hearing, Etiquette, Excellent Vision, Lightning Reflexes, Strong-minded
    Armour: Leather jack
    Armour Points: Head 0, Arms 1, Body 1, Legs 0
    Weapons: Dagger, Hand weapon (short sword)
    Trappings: One set of good craftsmanship clothing, pewter tankard, tinderbox, storm lantern, lamp oil, shirt, tattered cloak, breeches, dagger tucked into worn boots, backpack, blanket, wooden tankard, wooden cutlery set, purse with 8 gc.
