Orcs! [BESM: The Slayers d20]

Recommended Posts

Last posts from Red indicates she's working on her sheet..but if I am not mistaken, Fishnjeeps only posted in the first page of the topic about being very interested and wanting in.  Unless you've been communicating with them in email or PM, it might not be a bad idea to send them another reminder.  I just reeeally want this game to actually happen.

I sent him a PM early last week, and followed up today.

 

I've also started adjusting the challenges to account for only 5 characters, just in case. I really want this to happen, too.

 

Speaking of characters, I may have neglected to mention the fact that warbands have a rank structure. Typically this is: 1 Lieutenant, 2 Sergeants, 2 Corporals, 1 Medic (no actual rank), and 6-10 Grunts.

 

For 5 characters, it will adjust to: 1 Lieutenant, 1 Sergeant, and 3 Grunts (with 1 doubling as the Medic).

 

ETA: It will be up to the players to select each position.

Alright, I have enough sheets to start. I still need to make a few adjustments to make up for having only 5 characters.

 

We'll probably get started...Thursday or Friday, I'd guess.

COOL! I'm very new to this, by all means feel free to over explain things when it comes time to play! 

 

I just started playing Dnd 2 weeks ago!

Quickly assign rank/positions, please.

 

And then, COMBAT.

 

The humans have the initiative.

 

Each player states his/her combat priorities in here. You can set up to 5 priorities for each combat.

Example:

[Character Name]:

  1. Attack melee
  2. close to melee range
  3. attack ranged
  4. back out of melee if at X% hit points
  5. Other thing

You will do these things in order. This character will attack in melee until that is no longer possible. Then he/she will attempt to close to melee range with the next opponent. If that's not possible, he/she will attack at range, etc.

 

This will make combat flow more smoothly. I'll roll all the dice here, people will die, Orcs probably won't. There will be blood and glory, and we'll move along with kind of cinematic combat sequences.

 

IF YOU HAVE A SPECIAL ACTION YOU'D LIKE TO TAKE DURING COMBAT: Post it in this thread, since this is where all the OOC stuff will happen.

I don't mind being a sergeant...but would rather not be the lieutenant.
 

Also, since we have walked into a company of guards, are their drawn blades considered their held action, or do we post our action priorities now even though they have initiatitve?

Also, can we post held-actions as priorities  (example "Melee with attacker #4 unless our archer is readying to shoot attacker #4"?

      SO....
       
      Due to Brain Weasels and other Real Life Issues, I haven't been doing much, really almost no, fantasy painting...
      One of the things I have been doing is looking at old WIPs, and suddenly the desire to paint a DRAGON, came over me....
       
      So here is the start of my new work on Cinder, #10014, in METAL...
       
      Hopefully, I can keep up the sudden burst of enthusiasm....
       
      So planning on mold line hunting, and trying to decide what color to paint this dragon...
      As I am old school, the webbing between the back spines is leading me to green, but need to check the books to see which way to go....
       
      About time you returned from the place I couldn't reach you minion......
       
      OMG, please not again....

      any and all comments gratefully ignored....

      Here is the big boss of the Bones I Orc Warband.  With all of these Orcs they are shadowed with a purple color.  I added some green freckles/sun spots for a little interest.
       
      For his shield trophies, I included some skin tones and hair colors that could represent elf, dwarf, human, goblin and undead.  The wood planks and boards on the shield are freehand.  Kavorgh got a little extra love with the bloodstain on the axe.
       
      WIP here:

      And the group shot.  Enjoy.

      Here is another of the Orc Warband from Bones I.  He had a very bent sword, so I swapped it with one from the Bones III weapon sprue.
