AYK: rdanhenry Character Generation
« on: April 18, 2011, 03:39:09 PM »
Alright. I was going to go with strict character gen, since practically any character is playable.

Roll 4d6 for each of the following

Str:
Con:
Siz:
Int:
Pow:
Dex:
Cha:

Then roll 1d100 for Nationality.

Really, any character is playable. Some combinations are awkward, such as a Melnibonean Noble with sorcery and a Beggar, but any character on its own is quite workable.

Rolled 3d6 : 3, 6, 4, total 13

Rolled 3d6 : 4, 5, 3, total 12

Rolled 3d6 : 4, 3, 1, total 8

Rolled 3d6 : 6, 6, 5, total 17

Rolled 3d6 : 3, 3, 5, total 11

Rolled 3d6 : 4, 3, 3, total 10

Rolled 3d6 : 4, 5, 6, total 15
Rolled 1d100 : 58, total 58
I'm sorry, but I fumbled my "think of clever signature" roll.

Let's see 58 is... Eshmir. Subtract 2 from SIZ except it already under 10, +1d4 INT, +1d6 POW.

Rolled 1d4 : 2, total 2
Rolled 1d6 : 6, total 6

Hmm. From Eshmir.

I have The Unknown East though it was made for Elric!. As he is an easterner, do you want to take Eshmir or use that book to find out his background adapted to this ruleset?

Str: 13
Con: 12
Siz: 8
Int: 19
Pow: 17
Dex: 10
Cha: 15

And with INT + POW = 36 > 32, I'm automatically a Priest (and sorcerer). My STR is also just high enough to also make me a Warrior! I am a rockin' Warrior-Priest of Chaos; Bwahahahahaha!

Yeah, forget my other suggestion. No way we will let this one past.

Looks like you have the rules handy. You want to finish it out yourself, or you want me to go through it with you?

Since I'm already sorcerer material, there's not so much incentive to boost INT. I'll stick to the default age of 25.

Please check my calculations: I have the following for my bonuses...
Attack: +13%
Parry: +7%
Damage: +0
Agility: +7%
Communication: +15%
Knowledge: +14%
Manipulation: +13%
Perception: +12%
Stealth: +8%

Should I roll my weight in pounds or kilos?

Priest skills:
Read/Write Common Tongue 80% + Knowledge bonus
Read/Write Low Melnibonean 60% + Knowledge bonus
Read/Write High Melnibonean 40% + Knowledge bonus
Use Dagger 30% + Attack/Parry bonus
Plant Lore 40% + Knowledge bonus
First Aid 40% + Knowledge bonus
Persuade 25% + Communication bonus
Credit 25% + Communication bonus

I also get a dagger, a 5D100 LB monthly stipend from the church (unlikely I can collect while wandering, I guess), and 2d6 points of Elan

Warrior skills
Battle Axe as first weapon, 50% + Attack/Parry bonus
Self Bow as second weapon 40% + Attack bonus (parry doesn't really apply)
Target Shield as third weapon 30% + Attack/Parry bonus
I get all three weapons to start with. Then I've got to roll some stuff, so I might as well start with my Priestly Elan, and I will attempt to roll under my 60% chance to be good at Riding.

Rolled 2d6 : 3, 3, total 6
Rolled 1d100 : 57, total 57

Weight and height in pounds and inches please. Not much on metric.

5 x 19 (INT) = 95 LB starting money
Oh, and I get choice of armor. I'll go with half-plate.

I need to pick a cult. I'll try Vezhan. On a whim: the most suitable way to pick a Chaos Lord.

On to other skills

3 more skills, but I think I want to read up on Sorcery before I make my finishing choices

Eshmir body frame is medium, I am size 8, so height and weight are:

Rolled 1d2+60 : 2 + 60, total 62
Rolled 1d15+150 : 1 + 150, total 151

Summoning skill starts at INT + POW = 36%. Are there rules for determining what you start knowing how to summon? I don't see any and I can't remember if there were or if the limitation of Free INT was the only restriction. I'd like to start with elemental summoning, but I'm unsure of any demons. I'll probably want to wait until I've built up Summoning before trying anything more challenging.

Nope, no rules on what you can summon to begin with. You have to pick them up as you go along.

Free Int was the only limiter, and that's overcome by Grimoires.

Well, you have to start knowing how to summon something, or how would you develop any Summoning skill?

4 + 7 (Agility bonus) = 11% Swim
45 + 14 (Knowledge bonus) = 59% Poison Lore
4 + 15 (Communication bonus) = 19% Sing

I will be fairly safe if I stick to bathing in tubs, and I shall be able to poison those who object to my melodious tones.
