I am intrigued by this.  Can you tell me how this addiction will work?

I am still working on the details, but I foresee that the addiction will need to be indulged at some regular frequency.  I have been looking for details on actual addictions related to frequency of need and duration of indulgence.  I would assume that it would impact direct actions for a limited time--i.e. out of action or at a serious minus for an 1 to 3 hours per day, or if a stimulant (or similar) a bonus to actions for a similar time and a larger negative to actions when not under the influence. Keeping supplied wit the "drug" of choice may also come into play.  Luckily in a City setting there won't be long treks through the wilderness, with no possible supply.

I thought there was Addiction Factors and descriptions etc for drugs listed in RM. it is in ChL with the herbs. There should be all you need in there.

I looked but it really doesn't provide details on addiction. Yeah it says herb might be less effective, or you might be so, or you need it in times of stress or you have withdrawal symptoms.  I was more interested in finding specifics on how it would impact you on a daily basis.  I also don't see this as being an herb addiction (i.e something useful) as much as a drug addiction (something pleasurable).

I am thinking that your addiction will require about 4 hours a day--on average.  This time will be divided between acquiring the drug and  time spent in the throws of the drug.  If your chosen drug is a stimulant, then there may be a break between acquiring the drug and the crash after the drug, during which you would be "high" and at some bonus for at least some skills/stats.  Depressants/hallucinogens  will basically have you acquire the drug, do the drug and be stultified for some time.  The exact numbers will depend on the drug, with alcohol probably taking the longest to acquire/do and recover from, and other drugs  taking maybe an hour to acquire and about 3 to do and recover from.


Please ask if you have questions

Not the regular RM limitations i.e. no armor, no heavy items in hand, no shield, etc.

Where do we stand on character development?  Are you close to having it finalized?  There are a couple of others still working on finalizing their characters, but I am hoping to get started next week.

Welcome to the aristocracy--all for the small price of an addiction.  You may choose alcoholism or whats behind door number 2 (drug of my choice).  Additionally you gain another 3 background options now a total of 5 and you starting cash goes from 1d100 CP to 1D100-25 SP  you also gain 2 ancestry rolls on a d100 if you desire (typically used for the honor system but do add to your background either way).

Status roll of 11 = 3 background options and D100 Copper to start.

So, is that 6 BO total?

Yes 6 total BOs and Starting cash of 1D100-25 SP.

What races do you allow? half-elf (bear tribe)?

Any and even some not listed, I have had:  aquatic elves, a shape shiftier in the vein of the movie Cat People, a 1/2 demon, the lion headed guy from the Rolemaster Standard Rules, and I can work with you on just about anything else.

For DPs, do you use the table in ChL or the smoothed one in RCI?

I use the RC 2 or 3 master list of development costs, but for actual DP determination I have always used the ChL version.
