So we started the Dragonclaw Barony last Thursday night. It got off to a bit of a slow start as we got things situated and had an unexpected player show up in Hunter. This was good as we only had two of the four players slots filled with Empty and Dymond also playing. Hopefully Hunter can make it back and join up again.
Here's the log
(19:21:32) ChatBot: Hunter logs into the Chat.
(19:21:47) ChatBot: Hunter leaves the channel.
(19:56:44) ChatBot: Empty logs into the Chat.
(20:03:09) ChatBot: dymond logs into the Chat.
(20:03:19) Empty: oh hai dymond
(20:03:24) dymond: hey
(20:03:45) ChatBot: Crose87420 logs into the Chat.
(20:03:52) Empty: oh hai crose
(20:04:04) Crose87420: Hey, hows it going?
(20:04:15) Empty: look, I'm sorry man, but it's dinner time
(20:04:21) Crose87420: Thats okay
(20:04:21) Empty: I'll be back as soon as possible
(20:04:36) Crose87420: Were just going to get to know the characters and back scene
(20:04:41) Crose87420: Go eat dinner
(20:05:15) dymond: are we rolling or can I use the character I've already created?
(20:05:35) Crose87420: You can use the character you've already created if you like.
(20:06:09) Crose87420: Which character did you end up choosing?
(20:06:16) dymond: cool.. give me a sec to grab it from my other pc.. I created it using the m20 character creator
(20:06:42) Crose87420: Thats fine, like I said to Empty, well just get things situated.
(20:08:09) Crose87420 rolls the dice.
(20:08:15) ChatBot: Crose87420 rolls 1d20 and gets 3.
(20:08:20) dymond: ok back
(20:08:40) Crose87420: Okay, tell me what you have for stats, etc.
(20:08:44) dymond: would me emailing you the pdf be easier?
(20:09:02) Crose87420: sure
(20:10:53) Empty: back
(20:11:13) dymond: OK its sent..
(20:11:24) Empty: I'm not sure about that skill stuff you mentioned in the thread, can you elaborate on it?
(20:12:32) ChatBot: Empty rolls 1d6 and gets 1.
(20:12:48) Crose87420: Yeah, its really easy. Choose one skill, any skill, to be your primary skill, this skill is your characters level +3, choose another skill for your character as a secondary skill, this one is equal to your characters level...
(20:13:03) Empty: ah, k
(20:13:11) Crose87420: The rest of the skills are considered "untrained" and equal to half your characters level rounded down.
(20:13:18) dymond: so you said I could add this on top of the skill points I get for the class?
(20:13:22) Empty: is Urist at level 2? Or are we ignoring that thing you ran?
(20:13:58) Crose87420: No Urist is level 2, the Caverns of Chaos are nearby still.
(20:14:09) Crose87420: What was that Dymond?
(20:14:10) Empty: awesome
(20:14:41) Crose87420: Oh, skill points for the class are already accounted for in the +3 towards the primary skill.
(20:14:41) dymond: do I add the +3 to the skill additions i get for class?
(20:15:14) Crose87420: Does that make sense?
(20:15:45) Empty: should I just post my char. sheet here or email it to you?
(20:16:07) dymond: OK so I just keep the +4 I have in survival then.. but I can still add the +1 to another skill though?
(20:16:14) Crose87420: Can you post it here? That way you and Dymond will be familiar with each others characters.
(20:16:22) Empty: Urist McDwarf, Dwarven Fighter, Level 2
ST:18 (+5), DX:15 (+2), IQ:12 (+1), CH:16 (+3), PH:5, CO:2, OTHERS:1
+1 Great Axe (1d10), Dagger (1d4), Scale Mail (+4), Fast Pack B, 78GP
I'm loyal Dwarf warrior, striking out into the world to seek my fortune. My shiny metal axe was crafted by my father, Bigbeard the Toothless, one of the greatest Dwarven blacksmiths. We were found by the druid who looked over the sacred grove, an elf by the name of Ferenth.. He raised us both to adulthood and taught us the ways of the woods and he doesn't really like Urist, third born son and all that.
(20:16:26) Crose87420: As a human, yes.
(20:16:47) Empty: I thought you were running a Half-Orc, dymond
(20:16:59) dymond: I am
(20:17:06) Empty: oh
(20:17:08) Crose87420: where is the +12 coming from?
(20:17:13) Crose87420: +1 even
(20:17:24) dymond: I'm just trying to get my head around how you are doing skills
(20:17:33) Crose87420: Okay...
(20:17:38) Crose87420: One skill is primary
(20:17:44) Crose87420: it gets a +3
(20:17:47) Empty: my computer calculator says 2 halved is 1 for some reason
(20:17:52) Crose87420: + your characters level
(20:18:08) Crose87420: Another skill is equal to your characters level.
(20:18:13) dymond: in my case that would survival.. which I get a +4 for being a ranger
(20:18:16) Crose87420: These skills can be any two you choose
(20:19:06) Crose87420: Yes
(20:19:11) Empty: wait
(20:19:12) Crose87420: Your right on Dymond
(20:19:24) Empty: we're adding our class skill bonus?
(20:19:32) dymond: but you said you pick another and give it a +1 right?
(20:19:53) Crose87420: No, the second skill is just equal to your level score-wise
(20:20:08) Crose87420: So if you pick communication, it would be equal to your level
(20:20:09) dymond: sorry thats what I meant
(20:20:30) Crose87420: Gotcha!
(20:20:35) Crose87420: Whats that Empty?
(20:21:00) Empty: just a sec
(20:21:04) Crose87420: These skill changes will be in the Compendium
(20:21:05) dymond: I'm regreting putting this thing in pdf form now..
(20:21:31) Empty: ok, I have PHYS as my primary; That's 5 because of 3 + level (2)
(20:21:31) Crose87420: If you want Dymond, just send them over the chat window like Empty did.
(20:21:42) Empty: do I add the +3 from being a fighter?
(20:21:45) Crose87420: Yes, Empty, thats right
(20:21:50) Crose87420: no
(20:22:00) Crose87420: The +3 is already counted for.
(20:22:03) Empty: ahh
(20:22:03) Crose87420: So your +5
(20:22:11) Empty: ok
(20:22:25) Empty: and yeah dymond, put up your char. sheet
(20:22:51) Crose87420: Dang you ate dinner fast!
(20:23:03) Empty: kind of a given, I had this
(20:23:16) Crose87420: hah ha

(20:24:03) Empty: it's roll xdy
(20:24:03) Crose87420: I remember how to roll dice, do an action...
(20:24:08) Crose87420 laughs
(20:24:14) Empty: how do you do an action?
