4E OOC tread of "The Broken Tower"

Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

*happy dance*

EDIT: In a more serious tone, I was gonna write that Kruor thought Skyla was going to smite him and the whole room, just for being associated with a monster. Kruor doesn't think too highly of the right and just, not very forgiving, them...

[sblock=PC List]Skyla Level 1 Female Eladrin Paladin (Protecting)
Eldreth Forgemark Level 1 Female Dwarf (Elemental) Fighter (Knight)
Arshaka Level 3 Shardmind Psion
Everlin Level 3 Female Human Bard (Skald)
Kruor Sytis Level 3 Warforged Vampire
Someone's Pixie? (Is it this guy?)[/sblock]

I feel like I'm missing something about the background setting. I know paladins tend to attract a lot of different opinions from other characters, but I figured Apollo would be one of the more popular gods in the world. I gather that Kruor is nervous given his, uh, interesting origins and vampiric leanings, but what is the deal with Orisk?

don't feel bad about the god you picked though, it just so happens to not work with your characters first group (and only one member and a NPC) so nothing to worry about Apoli is cool :)
 
That's cool, just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing some crucial piece of backstory. As far as Kruor is concerned, Apoli doesn't seem to have any explicit smite the undead stance, and even if he did, being a robot is one hell of a cover for being a vampire (I mean, Skyla doesn't know how robots work, much less, what would make a vampire robot). As far as Skyla is concerned, you're someone embarking on a heroic quest, so she'll consider you good until she witnesses something that suggest otherwise.

Which will happen at about the time Kruor sticks his fingers into a goblin's neck and drains it dry, shuddering and creaking with enjoyment ;)

As far as I know, Orisk is just someone who has something to hide. And Kruor. Cause, well...he's Kruor. Oh, and I'm sure if you read the wiki you'll know Apoli is well associated with the sun and that kinda makes vampires, you know...burn and shrivel up.

Skyla will be so busy enjoying lopping off a goblin's head that she won't notice anything amiss.

True, but he's also not The Raven Queen with standing orders for his followers to wipe out the abomination of undeath.

true but he could be. Its calling living worlds for a reason. If you decide that he i a god who hates undeadth, then he his

ill post on the main thread tonight.
 
I've been tinkering with my character sheet to try and switch it over to the tabbed format that folks seem to be using, but creating and editing wiki pages is definitely new for me, so if any of the more experienced players would like to take a look and make any suggestions for how I can improve it, I'm all ears.

They are still about an hour away when the group decides to stop for food underneath a tree. The sky is blue and the sun in shining down on our heroes.
XD I suppose this doesn't apply to me.

And as for Skyla's formatting, I can't quite help you there because the wiki isn't loading up for me properly. I can't even double-check my approval status or edit my sheet.

Don't be airing my dirty laundry here! :<

But if it's relevant, this is where I got started before I entered that adventure.

Half of the things I wrote, I've come to realize, might kinda suck. I was...overly-excited, liked the attention. Hope I've improved since then, as a person and a role-player.
 
*laughs* I happen to like Kruor's antics! And the idea to make a robot vampire... well, I have always thought it toed the line between genius and crazy (which mean's it's f@#$'n brilliant)!

@steaminwillybmen : I'll have a look at your sheet when I have the chance. I'm fond of using the tabbed character sheet, myself. I find the best way to create a character with that format is to whole-sale rip off another character's character sheet (by editing it, then copying and pasting it in my own page). Give me a few days to work on it, and I'll have your sheet up and running just like my characters!

Uh, thanks I suppose. The concept started when I realized that Vampire Warforged was a totally legit/legal combination within the rulebooks. And then I just got obsessed with making a decent backstory. Next thing I knew, the story just writes itself. Bad with the names though, got some help for that.

That's what I do, but I have a bad habit of "saving" my progress by publishing prematurely after I'm done with a section. On top of that, I used to work on them one section at a time so that they didn't seem like such a huge workload.

Sadly, that doesn't work with the tabbed version as you can't pick just one section. I think future new characters will be developed in the vanilla format before I import it to tabs. Which begs the question of whether the vanilla format will stick long enough.

On another topic, ENWorld's uh...posty thing seems to spaz out on me sometimes. I can't click on anything (the formatting stuff) and that includes the quick reply, quote and multi-quote button as well as the save button for editing.

The wiki too seems to spaz out sometimes. Not sure if server side or my connection.

EDIT1: Put up links for the PCs on the first page, for ease of access. And steaminwillybmen can have a look at backstories :)

NOTE: Would be nice to have something shorter to type for your name steaminwillybmen. What would you prefer? Something shorthand...
