    [OOC] PbtA Ironsworn - PbP in Ancient Greece

    I missed that, it makes sense though. I guess there is nothing stopping a character from swearing a vow on his own still.

    [OOC] PbtA Ironsworn - PbP in Ancient Greece

    Ok makes sense, I got confused because momentum can go -ve Also makes sense, I've not played with allies before and I thought we kept our vows separate (sworn and tracked individually). Having said that this vow is basically the same. Ok I was wondering how much flexibility we had in writing...

    [IC] PbtA Ironsworn - PbP in Ancient Greece

    Not wanting to be outflanked by the charging enemies Pallas waited from his moment. Right as the lead attacker came into reach, Pallas stepped forward and thrust with his spear. Pallas took the attacker completely by surprise opening up a huge wound in its chest that would surely prove fatal...

    [OOC] PbtA Ironsworn - PbP in Ancient Greece

    I picked this up from listening to some online play throughs. As vows are the XP mechanism in the game it helps to make as much as possible about a vow, that way you get XP. So generally I try to make a vow about every path or encounter I choose. Whereas random encounters caused by failed...

    [IC] PbtA Ironsworn - PbP in Ancient Greece

    Pallas watched the dog headed warriors ignore much of the others in the camp. When they spotted him though, they seemed to have found their goal. As they charged Pallas set his shield and lifting his spear to receive the charge. Enter the Fray with Iron: 1D6+3 = [4]+3 = 7 1D10 = [4] = 4 1D10...

    [IC] PbtA Ironsworn - PbP in Ancient Greece

    i think I might go for the protecting the wounded, as I feel like the timing of Get a warning to Alpha doesn’t allow for too many distractions. I’ll update the post to reflect that. And sort out the rolls for the vow.

    [IC] PbtA Ironsworn - PbP in Ancient Greece

    The priestess shook her head. “You were barely on your feet! You uttered only incoherent ramblings!” she insisted. “You still aren’t well! Come to the mountains with us!” she told him. Pallas thought about it for a moment. The mountains certainly offered safety, but would not get the message to...

    Lol. I find that’s best. Players have an annoying habit of ruining your plans anyway.

    [IC] PbtA Ironsworn - PbP in Ancient Greece

    Pallas started awake with the noise of a battle outside the tent. He looked around in confusion taking in his surroundings. A tent, stretchers, various herbs, a priestess. The recent past crashed over him. Beta had betrayed the polis to the barbarians. They would be marching even now to...

    Added Pallas to the RG and updated his backstory to accommodate the changes we've made. @KalesNestor if you want Penelope somewhere else for that opening attack, let me know. I figured that is a good way to have us meet and give us an immediate need to help each other.

    That works with some minor tweaks to Pallas' story. If I can presume a little geography as well. Beta is closest to the pass, so they are expected to hold it, but the other pollis are all sending reinforcements as fast as possible (ie a unit of younger soldier who can move faster) while they...

    [Recruiting 2/4] PbtA Ironsworn - PbP in Ancient Greece

    1. I think an easy option would be that they met at the temple (or field hospital) when Pallas went for healing after the battle which would mean... 2. Not very long - Just long enough to heal. 3. Perhaps at camp immediately after the battle. This gives gives a better chance to have an...

    I've made another (hopefully final) update to Pallas. Apart from an inciting incident and possibly another bond (if something presents itself) I think he's good to go.

    [Recruiting 2/4] PbtA Ironsworn - PbP in Ancient Greece

    Some thoughts in this. I think you only need a +2 to a roll to have a probable (>50%) chance to score a weak hit. I can't remember the chance for a strong hit, but it was surprisingly low. Even a weak hit usually makes progress, just with the cost of a complication. A really useful tool for...

    So with four checked back in I will get this moving again. since the fight with the shambling mound is basically over, I propose a short rest for those in the fight giving the new PC's time to introduce themselves. It looks like @Herosmith14 and @ Shayuri are not posting anymore. @SteveGorak...

    [Recruiting 2/4] PbtA Ironsworn - PbP in Ancient Greece

    “Career soldier” is probably not a very good descriptor. Essentially he’s good at fighting and wants to make a name for himself with it. I should be able to get the final draft up later today.
