    I offloaded Intimidation - Threats to Conviction via a stunt, if I could keep it priestly enough on top of Investigation 2.

    I off loaded my Contacts, Rapport, and Resources via Aspects I have that invoke two faces I made who do have high skills in the aforementioned.

    All my skills and aspects narratively fit the backstory I wrote for my character. He's the Red Oni to his Faces' Blue Oni.

    No, no, no - you did not destroy your potential base. You denied it to the enemy i.e. any other party :p

    This may or may not have happened after one of our party 'misunderstood' the situation and decapitated a defenceless girl. It was a hell of a session.

    Also, this is probably the third time Hawkin will change characters in this campaign alone. :p

    She wa sprobably a demon in disguise or an insane cultist that wanted to sacrifice you all to some dark god - rule of thumb man, every NPC is just unprocessed XP :p

    I wish motivating my players was this easy. The dream of being able to use XP as a carrot.

    We're playing a system notorious for being lethal at low levels, but so far we've lost 1 character to death and at least 4 to "Oh I can't fucking take any more of this shit."

    No, this wasn't about getting XP. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    So far, I've been unable to attend two sessions.

    In each one, at least one major faction has been made into an enemy, at least one defenseless innocent has been slaughtered, and at least two PCs have been so horrified by what happened that they ran away into the night - becoming NPCs - and now a planet has been nuked.

    Clearly I'm the best player of all time for being able to hold back the deluge. :p

    Or some Changeling Lawyer. Or we could go full into "We're investigating with our fists!" :p

    Get a party of murder-hobos - XP and loot are what those guys live for, I know I usually play one at D&D ;)

    How do you think I feel? I took a call for 20 minutes and came back to decapitation.

    Has the game already started? Time zone/schedule permitting, I'd definitely be on board if it hasn't and there's room for me. I only have experience with D&D 5e, but I can learn other systems quickly.

    It's one session in, and it starts at 7 AM GMT+0. So... Being Canadian (that's what your location says?) that's anywhere from 11 PM start to 4 AM start, I believe.

    I'm looking for players (4-6) for a Stars Without Number game (sci-fi setting) that would take place on Tuesdays at 8PM (EST) starting Feb 21st. Let me know if you are interested.

    Zeelthor has chosen to play a high social skill drug brewer that is currently stoned out of his mind.

    We are at a police station about to have a talk. Absolutely nothing can go wrong. /s

    But nah, we just need to get better at RPing social skills.

    Proposed solution: Mental attack the interrogator until he goes batshit then we threaten to sue until they let us go. Mental conflicts: The better social conflict.

    Yeah, break the Third Law in front of a wizard, great idea ;)

    Instead of that lets summon a very good lawyer - one C. Thulhu, he's very good at what he does :p

    So we had an interesting session last night in Enembee's Stars Without Number game.

    In it we picked up some new crewmembers (including a new psionic who I may have bought out of indentured servitude and a speed demon pilot). We tried to sell some stuff and failed. I made some friends who later betrayed me to an interstellar criminal organisation. Now the rest of the group is setting up to rescue me from a guy I suspect is based off Adelai Niska.

    All in all, very fun. Especially the way I didn't die this time.

    I obviously got into character by sleeping one hour that night. Sorry about that, chaps. I'll get us out of this mess somehow :)

    Amusing, but you misread that bit. :p

    The psionic and pilot are two different characters.

    Hey, it's only breaking the Third Law if you're mortal. Now, if you're only using what (your divine) nature provided... :D

    I'll help! *applies aspect: Irrational fear of the phoneme θ, aka "th" in thing*. Watch as the policeman flinches every time we make a th sound, as long as our tongues don't pass our teeth!
