Gm, I have something I want to say about what's going on in character. Where do I do?
Always Unless otherwise stated (such as by the gm for a run), in the in character chat with parenthesis surrounding the the question or correction or PM the GM. The GMs are not responsible for seeing every message in OOC because we are often entrenched in other activities. Do not act as if we are.
You forgot X about my character which means X is invalid and should not have happened.
Sorry good fellow. I'll correct it as long as you make the correction in IC or PM.
I want something to happen to my character!
Pm a Gm. We'll talk about getting it to happen.
What do different tags around text mean?
"Quotation marks" are something I think you can figure out on your own.
/Slashes/ and *asterisks* mean emphasis, as do italics and bold. Slashes can also mean thought along with….
~Tildes~ mean that a character is thinking. This is not normally audible to others.
<Single arrows> refer to dialogue broadcasted over a loudspeaker or similar device.
«Double arrows» are either telepathy or a two-way communication device (such as SMS or radios), depending on context. Please specify.
[Square brackets] are used in conjunction with other punctuation, and indicate a language other than English. Please be clear about what language is being used
Can I have like a step by step for character creation?
1. Spend 5 points between Brawn, Agility and Brains. Each starts at 1.
2. Spend 12 points among skills. All start at 0, cap at 4 for creation (cap at 6 total). Skills should be fairly broad and cover a highly used function, or multiple minor functions.
3. Spend 7 points among powers / supernatural abilities. Powers cap at 4 for creation (7 total). Look at other characters if you need ideas/examples.
4. Figure out if you want a weakness. Mild gives +2 skill pts, severe gives +3 skill points xor +2 power points. Discuss to figure out which it is - you can just take none at all if you like.
Are we allowed to RP in paused rooms?
Yes you may! As long as there are no other open un-paused rooms, and you don't know the people using that paused room are gonna be back soon. If you're not sure, ask a GM.
