Character sheet archiving. Help with characters can be solicited here. This is also the place to talk Philsys or other RPing systems.

Clark's (Re) Introduction to RPing

Unread postby Clark » Tue Sep 25, 2007 4:10 am

Fwipped from my intro thread:

I also feel an urge to whip up a quick "nice" or "has sword, might travel" type guy in PS, and then, proceed to actually play using that system. Hopefully I'll get a better grasp of it this time around.

EDIT: This is because I tend to get bogged down in Character Creation type stuff and then bogged down in introductions, all the while still having an incomplete sheet floating there.



Anyway, I figure this not as some kind of excuse to play some sort of "powerlevel 9000!" character, but rather a character who is simple to make, and simple to use.

I don't like making or playing brooding loner guys, so no worries there.

What this is though is me being humble and admitting that well, maybe I don't remember it all, and also, even humbler (humblier?), that I might not have gotten it right the first time.

PS number crunchy stuff certainly, but also, the more ethereal bit, the RP bit.

So I want to jump back in with both feet, so to speak, and fix up a sort of "tutorial character."

EDIT: Now for a more serious go at it.

"John Smith" is the son of a farming couple who live somewhere outside of Doma city. His family falls into debt as their crop of [Doman farming good (corn?!?)] fails. While his parents try to recover and work things out with the collectors, "John" decides to travel to the capitol in search of work.

Stats:

Should be tough enough for farm work.
Not sure about anything else though

Areas of expertise:

Common level of education, literacy and all that.
One or two handed swordsmanship
Farming skills.
Hiking.
Other outdoorsy skills.


EDIT2: Serious goes up top.

Quick character concept.

Young No-name, is from a small Doman Town. His parent are in mediumly substaintial debt. No-name decides to head to Doma looking for work.

Significant qualities (by comparison to other, more well knownish types?!?)

More affable and less of a loner than Kamos.
-Will talk to folks.
-In a generally friendly manner, that is.

Slightly less self-preservation than Kelne.
-"Adventuring" won't be his first job choice, but ehh... he'll go. ( hey wait, so does Kelne... )

Less cute than a moogle ( pick one, the lancer or the dancer ).
-Humans are not so bad

Smarter than a minion
-But still pretty good with a shovel I suppose.

Less smart than Hakaril
-Doesn't know how to ginsu up the astral.

And so on. I figure this is a simple enough background without being some kind of MCFy type. He has a general enough motivation that he'll be able to get into whatever sort of thing pops up, but a motivation specific enough to ensure he gets into something.

Any idea on what's a good amount for the debt? Is this whole thing even a good idea?

Putting Character into new clean post:

Background:


"John Smith" is the son of a farming couple who live somewhere outside of Doma city. His family falls into debt as their crop of [Doman farming good (corn?!?)] fails. While his parents try to recover and work things out with the collectors, "John" decides to travel to the capitol in search of work.

Stats:

Cou: 3
Wis: 2
Int: 4
Cha: 2
Agi: 2
Dex: 2
Str: 4
Sta: 2
Mag: 0

Stat points left: 0

HP: 65/65
MP: 30/30
TP: 25/25

Init: 3.5

Str AT/PA: 13/13
Dex AT/PA: 11/11

MAtk: 6
MDef: 20
ME: 18

Skills:

Swords 4
Bows 4
[s]Balance 4- [Agi=2]
[s]Observant 4- [Int=3]
Animal Handling/training 4 - [Cou/Cha/Wis]
Cooking 4 - [Int/Int/Dex]
Tracking 4- [Int/Int/Sta]
[k]Farming 4(2)
[k]Survival 4(2)

Are these ok? I can't think of many farm related "fleshing out" skills, so I decided he'd do some hunting as a pastime and alternate food source, hence the bow, tracking and survival stuff. Sorry Druids.

Skill points left: 0

I actually wanted to hold off on spending all the skill points till I figured out what sort of a job he'd get... but that's kind of a catch-22 situation right there.
