Hey YS,

I'm still here and want to continue playing. For some reason I didn't notice you had started this thread about the game after the crash. With all the restart threads and whatnot when everything came back up, I must have missed this one. On top of that, I have been mostly offline over the past few days as work was a bit hectic. Good to see you are planning to continue.

So, present and ready to play! :)

Toric

Glad to hear that your still in the game. So that makes 4 players then.

So how do you want to work this? Start back up at the reception? Hummm...

Yellow Sign: What kind of character would be of the most help to the group? I am currently thinking about creating a medical doctor or some sort of professor but let me know what would be needed most or is still missing from the group. (Brawl seems to be covered by Lukeworm).

Jefferson was born in the United States, but was sent to boarding schools in Europe at a very early age by uncaring parents. He became fascinated with the history of the world while visiting the museums of France, German, and Britain. He later enrolled at a British university near London to study archaeology, and graduated with honors. Sadly, his parents passed away before he finished school, but his inheritance has allowed him to begin planning expeditions of his own, specifically to Egypt to study the pyramids.

Jefferson is a suave product of proper education and aristocracy. He dresses well, if not as fine as he could, and he has an overwhelming charm that women find irresistible. Lately though he has begun to have strange feelings when visiting certain museums. He is usually quite at home working at night at the museums, staying after the other staff has long gone home, but certain statues and items have begun to evoke unnatural fear in him. He sometimes thinks he hears noises or seas someone when no where is there, but he as written this off as paranoia and thinks the coming trip to Egypt will do him good, with its exercise and fresh air.

Anthony is a professor at Oxford University. He has lived in London for six years after having been offered a job teaching at Oxford while he was a professor New York University.

(Okay, that should get things moving. I will add more to his history soon and probably will add more to his possession list as well. I haven't totally decided what he is a professor *of* at Oxford but probably Art or Psychology. If you have any suggestions in this regard Yellow Sign, feel free to run it by me.)

----

Psychology professor will work. I'll probably ditch Knowledge (astronomy) as a core skill and replace it with Psychoanalysis. I'll post him in the Rogues Gallery soon.

Toric,
Check over this sheet. I was from the OOC thread and I don't know if you changed anything.

You don't gain any languages because of an INT bonus. That was a typo in the book. You just get extra languages other than your native one when you spend skill points to get ranks in the Speak Other Language skill.

Strating at the reception sounds good. Also it is a reasnbale place to introduce new characters or part with others.

Well here is what we have so far.


The Players:

Major (Retired) Cyril Humblet - Aristocratic (Lukeworm)
Anthony Murdock - Oxford Professor (Toric_Arthendain)
Dr. Richard Newcastle - Doctor of Medicine (Iron Captain)
Jefferson Grant - Archeologist (ZeroGlobal2003)

Now I don't know if ZeroGlobal2003 knows that we are starting the game up or if he is still interested in playing. As soon as I hear from him we will get started again.

We have a new player - Iron Captain! Welcome aboard! Dr. Newcastle should fit in well.

I am still working on how to fit Dr. Newcastle into the game. But it shouldn't be hard. :)

If you haven't all ready please post your characters in the game's Rogues Gallery thread.

Hello, I played CoC (I don't think it was D20) once at a friend's berthday party and had alot of fun, I was interested in joining a PbP game on EnWorld but I'm a bit confused. I posted in the "GMs, recruit and regroup games here!" thread about this but I figured a more consentraited approach woudn't hurt. I've read this thread and your game seems really cool, the thing is, I've only got the 3.5 D&D CRBs and the Forgotten Realms CS. :(

Hello Dire Lemming,

If your interested in playing but don't have the rule book, I would be glad to help you make a character. :)

Currently I am trying to get the game restarted after the forum crashed a few weeks ago and we lost some posts. Well a lot of posts. Luckly we had just gotten started so it shouldn't be to hard to get back on track. Though I have lost a couple of players.

So, my first question would be what kind of character would you like to play?

Wow, thanks for the fast reply. I guess you live nowhere near me or are as bad at going to sleep(Man what's the word for that?) as I am.

The other time I played I was an ex-military gun pcy- enthusiast, and it seemed to fit me just fine. Along with that, this group seems not to have any combatants, so I suppose playing one would be beneficial to the group as well. I'm not sure I'd want to be the same kind of combatant. I tend to play characters that are somewhat apposed to killing. Also, I'm a big fan of Sherlock Holmes so my character might be as well and consequently want to meet Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. :p

EDIT: If my guy uses guns can he dual wield Colt 1911s? :D

I have started a new IC thread for the game and posted what I had saved from the crash.

http://www.enworld.org/showthread.php?p=2850817#post2850817

I am going to NPC Jackson Grant until ZeroGlobal2003 shows back up. If he doesn't then I have a nice NPC to maim or mutilate! :p I will also NPC Dr. Pickering.

Iron Captain,
Let's say that Dr. Richard Newcastle was at the theater and saw the play. Please look over any of the spoilers for Dr. Allistair Pickering in the 2nd IC post. They should continue your reactions and observations during the play. Dr. Newcastle is currently nursing a drink at the after party at the theater as he is too rattled to leave at the moment.

If you think it will help but I doubt it! :lol:


Yeah, good point. I can't remember how many times I fired my shotgun into that zombie's face in the game I played face. :p This of course was after one of our number had run over to it thinking it was a wounded person and gotten attacked by it. Then the person next to me decided to try and shoot it despite his complete lack of firearms ability, he hit the first guy and kocked him down, I didn't let him fire again, sent him out to try to pull the other guy inside. Somehow we all survived that encounter.

I guess I should read your IC thread before deciding on what type of character to make but it would be keen to be like a monster hunter or something, like with a sword, the sword could even be keen :D .
