Dead Board Roleplay?

Postby Silverware » 24 Apr 2014, 12:45

The world will end on a thursday, next thursday, just after tea.
The board is dead, so why don't we try to revitalize it with a roleplay?

It's the week before the end of the world, but we don't know that yet!
You all are currently in Saint Albans, about an hours drive north of London.
You have 15 points to spend on your character.

Characters have 6 statistics.
    Strength - Lifting Capacity, Melee Damage
    Agility - Fine Motor Skills, Aim
    Endurance - Lung Capacity, Energy
    Resilience - General Health, Resistance to Illness
    Perception - Eyesight, Hearing, Sense of Smell
    Learning - Knowledge Gained

Learning represents how far through the schooling system your character made it.
    1 - Primary Education
    2 - Secondary Education
    3 - Diploma
    4 - Masters
    5 - PhD

Each statistic starts at 1.
The maximum for each stat is 5.
Stat costs are as follows
    Stat 1 : Cost 0
    Stat 2 : Cost 1
    Stat 3 : Cost 2
    Stat 4 : Cost 4
    Stat 5 : Cost 6
So to have 4 Endurance it will cost 4 points.

Skills cost one point per skill. You also gain 1 free knowledge related skill PER level of Learning. (Including 1)
Skills are either general, or specific. There is no real limit to skills, except gamemaster discretion.
Knowledges can be gained as skills or for free via Learning.
Examples
    Firearms : General Skills
    Pistols : Specific Skill
    Science : General Knowledge
    Botany : Specific Knowledge
    Lockpicking : Specific Skill
General skills give a +1 to actions that involve that category, specific skills give a +2. Skills can overlap, but never stack. Instead the better score is used.

When doing actions, common things, with no stress, that can be done again if you fail don't require a roll.
Examples, washing dishes, throwing a stone into a pond, installing windows on a computer (with a skill), shooting a target for fun.

You require a roll when there is one or more of the following:
    A Lose condition (Target shooting for a competition)
    Stressful conditions (Climbing a tree while fleeing for your life)
    Uncommon activities (Hacking a laptop to recover the password)
    Difficult actions (Throwing a stone through a 0.5m gap from 15m)

Example Character
Jock Jockson
    Str 4 (4pts)
    Agi 3 (2pts)
    End 3 (2pts)
    Res 2 (1pt)
    Per 3 (2pts)
    Ler 2 (1pt)
Throw - General
Tackle - Specific
Dodge - Specific
Rugby History - Specific Knowledge
Mathematics - General Knowledge

(15pts + 2 free knowledges)

6+6+1+1+1 = 15
Meaning your stats are fine, but you then don't have left over points for pounce and tackle skills.
With Learning 1, I assume this character has had some hard times and never even finished high school then?

Ah... so you use stat points for skills.
I need to edit that then.

Okay cool.
I'll start in a few days if no one else posts a character. If someone does I will do it once I have two or three characters ready.

First post up, enjoy.
There are still a nearly infinite number of slots for new players open. So feel free to create a character people!
