(When life gives you lemons, don't make lemonade. Shove the lemons down the throats of your enemies.) #1

So, Today ive decided to make a new game which hopefully i wont forget about.

We need a minimum of 3 players.

ill elaborate on the story once we have enough players. the recruiting will end in 3 days and the game will begin, anyone is free to join afterwards, just plop down your character sheet thing.

Elaborations:

This is just to clear up certain things:

Traits provide an increase to certain things:
Strength increases your chances to strike a foe!
Physique increases your health, and chances to hit a foe with a ranged weapon! (keep in mind you have a base state of 10 Hp, every point put into physique will increase this by one)
Intelligence increases your magic damage. as well as intelligence based actions
Charisma increases your chances to lie, barter, etc. as well as charisma based actions.
Agility increases how many spaces you can move as well as your chances to dodge attacks

You only have 12 Skill points to assign to the traits (strength, physique etc)

Classes also provide slight boosts to certain traits,
Knight = + 2 strength
Archer = +1 agility, +1 physique
Mage = +1 intelligence +1 Charisma
Rogue = +1 agility, +1 Charisma
Monk = +2 physique

classes also are more proficient when using a weapon that they are familiar with.

Sorry about that error, i wrote this quite late in, its 12 skill points.

aight, noted!

ill clarify it on the elaboration thing, sorry about the error

Accepted Johansson Bread-Cleaver.

accepted Zunar

accepted Alithia Swiftwind

accepted Crispus

Accepted Flare Crest

yes.

Sorry, but your -12 intelligence isn’t really necessary, and the refrences to the old island survival game arent really lore compatible. try to stick to the character sheet. you didnt need to add all the extra details, my main problems are your backstory and intelligence stat, thats all. after you fix it i will gladly accept your character.

Accepted Sir Nerd II
Your relation to a sir nerd is fine, i just might have to change nerd lords story a bit, if thats fine with you.

2 more days left for recruiting!
