wrathgon: i will need a PC
Mark: You need to install openRPG to get the main conversation, wrathgon. We just maptools as a map because I hate the chat interface.
wrathgon: and a link to the rulebook been awhile since i played gurps
Mark: As far as PCs.... you're Thog
wrathgon: does openRPG have chat?
wrathgon: voice chat?
Mark: Yep. Not voice chat, though.
wrathgon: o u dont use voice chat?
wrathgon: any reason why not?
Mark: a) I like being able to type quietly while sitting next to my wife and not disturbing her by having conversations with people far away
Mark: b) two of the players are Spanish, and they read/write much faster than they hear/speak.
wrathgon: getting program now
Mark: Thanks! We're just chatting and waiting for connections.
Mark: openRPG server on 126.96.36.199:6774
wrathgon: man alot of stuff to dl just so it works
wrathgon: link to rulesbooks?
Mark: wrathgon - you any closer to OpenRPG status?
Mark: You own the GURPS books, right? I don't have spare copies to hand around.
wrathgon: this is going to be hard to run both i got it open now
Singeon: do tyou have "throwing?" as a skill?
wrathgon: what dice do we use again 1d100 yea
wrathgon: yea 12
Singeon: That would be your dart skill then. Above average.
Singeon: It is "roll under"
Singeon: You missed by 3
wrathgon: what ed this 4th?
Singeon: Its like 3rd, only more complicated.
Singeon: But very good
wrathgon: and fantasy cool got that in pdf
wrathgon: guess i should read a bit
Singeon: You need "Dungeon Fantasy 1 and 3."
wrathgon: i cant move token
Singeon: That was a Star Wars paraphrase!!
wrathgon: how long do we play for?
Mark: until 9 pm - 2.5 more hours.
wrathgon: i cant move token
wrathgon: can i do charge actions to overrun ppl?
wrathgon: with my size?
Singeon: Oh yeah!
Singeon: You must have good Strength, I would consider grappling and tossing these guys around
Singeon: I kinda suck without my rapiers
wrathgon: i am
Singeon: That was a paraphrase from the MASH movie
Mark: Thog has ST23 to Singeon's 13 and Mrugnak's 20.
Singeon: Slightly better than me
Mrugnak: Thog stronger. Mrugnak crankier.
Singeon: Singeon Singeonoer
Mrugnak: It takes two seconds to get up.
Mrugnak: So two turns.
wrathgon: looks like tripping ppl is way to go then
Mrugnak: Yah. If you're Singeon and acrobatic you could try a backflip or something to get to your feet.
Mrugnak: But us big dudes just have to get up the slow way.
Mrugnak: There's a lot to get up there, after all
wrathgon: has the player of thug left game then?
Mrugnak: I think so, I'm a little confused whether it's permanent, or just for months and months.
Mark: The original player? Yes. The replacement? Possibly. The replacement's replacement? I can't tell.
wrathgon: well i wouldnt mind joining after reading rules but would rather make my own PC, not a big fan of big dump fighters
wrathgon: more of a mage or smart martial player
wrathgon: Deceptive -4/-2??? how does these work?
Singeon: I think a martial artist with some defensive magic would be cool
Singeon: You reduce your attack by 4, giving a -2 to their defense
Singeon: For every -2, they get -1
wrathgon: yea thats what i would play
Singeon: So high skill characters can rape lower ones
Singeon: Deceptive copmbines with feint as well
wrathgon: do u got mages in group?
Singeon: Lenia, who isn't here this week.
Singeon: But he's the bookish kinda hang in the back mage
Singeon: GURPS allows you to build specialist mages pretty well.
wrathgon: yea i got lots of pdf now that i looked
Singeon: Thog needs help!!!!
Mrugnak: Looks like it. Mrugnak is amazed!
Mrugnak: Woot! Belly-flop smash!
Singeon: It was an oppsed roll. You beat them by 9
wrathgon: ahhh ok
wrathgon: so there is oppsed rolls then
Singeon: But not in general combat
Singeon: That you roll to hit the target, either you are successful or not, then they decide to defend against a possible hit, if they succeed they negate the attack
wrathgon: who says i need help
Singeon: Thog's odds just improved
wrathgon: puny humans
Mrugnak: 3's and 4's always pass, if you can roll at all. 17s and 18's always fail. 18's are crit failures, 3's are crit successes.
Mrugnak: 17s and 18s are really rare, 1.8% or something.
wrathgon: flyby entertainment
Mrugnak: So. My bets are either a) we're run out of Town for being horrible violent monsters or b) rewarded for taking down a bunch of hoodlums. I don't really expect b.
Singeon: Is there an extra effort to get an addiitonal attack?
Singeon: No one knows?
Mrugnak: That's a Rapid STrike.
Mrugnak: Extra effort 1FP per blow halves the penalty.
Singeon: And that Extra effort?
Mrugnak: so if you spend one FP, you attack at -6/-3, if you spend 2 it's -3/-3
Mrugnak: Fatigue point.
Mrugnak: Energy thingy, powers magic, martial arts, cool moves, etc.
wrathgon: ok does everyone get it
Mrugnak: Starts equal to your HT score.
Mrugnak: It's probably near it on your character sheet.
wrathgon: thog got 15
Singeon: 1.8%... IN MY FAVOR!!!
Singeon: Everybody have fun tonight! Everyone Wang Chung tonight..... LOL they were at my Grad Night
