Okay, as we discussed last weekend in Ballarat (all bar Nicko) we all agreed to try and Playtest DnDNext/5E before we go ahead with Sundered Skies. Good in a way, as what i have is more suited to campaign-style play.

Anyway, any thoughts on what to do with this game are welcome. I do intend to run it at some stage.

Game On Hold by ConnorsConnors, 30 May 2012 10:07

Hey
I'll go with the Drakin Chosen Sorcerer

No worries. I will make that change and then re post the PC Sheet under the PC page.

You can then see the Reckless Hindrance too. (Just Rp stuff ;)).

Edit: done & uploaded to PC Page.

yes please remove streetwize and increase agility to d10
this will alter my advancement goals/requests as i increase in levels, but if i now have d10 in agility then next level i will increase my fighting to d10 and my shooting to d10. after that i am not sure what to increase but strength and vigour would be good choices i think. what hinderences does the reckless hinderence apply to the character? other than roleplaying (that is if there is any other penalties)

For meshing your history - go to the thread and chat with other players…if they get involved? (Other players won't see this stuff as it is under your personal PC's thread - well I hope they don't, but I am not sure how 'Watching the Site' works. In any case this is a private forum for just you, your PC amd me :)).

I see your 0XP Advance was a 'new skill' which would be Streetwise (b/c it is the only d4). If you want Agility d10 right now, I can remove Streetwise and give it to you as your 1st Advance if you like.

Otherwise I will add improve Agility and Fighting to you PC Page. Will do the same for pistols.

Changed Taunt to Climbing. Made up and added a 'Reckless' Hindrance too. :)

(Will upload a new version of PC when I hear back re the Agility).

Hello Porl,

I signed up and things seem to work which is good. I have been thinking I will add a rekless perk/hinberence to Rennik and remove the taunt d6 skill and replace it with climbing d6. Other than that i am happy with Renik. as far as skill advancement goes I was thinking at my next level to take an increase in agility to d10 , then the following level take D10 in fighting and agility. As far as wish list goes i eventually like to get Rennil 4 x pistols and a metal cutlass. other than that the persuit and death of sky pirates. I noticed in one of your threads that you would like us to come up with a recent history that will get all the characters knowning each other and at a market. i am not sure how to go about this ( i do not know enough about this setting) but if you or and other player has any ideas i would like to hear.

Hey cool. Welcome Nicko.

Rennik is yours :)

And for those wondering who Rennik is, he is the Human Reformed Sky Pirate.

A nice easy one to pick up Nicko. So glad someone has check the pregens out…they took a while to add. 9No harm in getting to know a couple either, as backups may just be required ;)).

RE Sundered Skies rules - we are using Savage Worlds rules (like the Marked Ones - hopefully this will show a more gritty style, given you are 'low level' without magic items).

You can get a PDF copy of the Player's Guide and a $10 copy of the Savage Worlds rules from the links above. (Or someone else might be able to get a copy to you)?

Nicko = Rennik by ConnorsConnors, 14 May 2012 11:43

If it is ok with everyone i would be keen to play Rennik or Emeraldwing (pregenerated characters), preference for Rennik. Both if that is applicable. I am keen to read up on the setting but cannot find rules?

Don't stress - I am NOT starting you all on a boat now. See the other thread re the Campaign Start.

Re: Characters History by ConnorsConnors, 10 May 2012 12:16

Didnt see this before I did Boron, so he doesn't have any boating, but has some leadership edges, shooting, climbing, repair etc

Re: Characters History by VampreyVamprey, 10 May 2012 08:02

I had a look. Excellent - if not, too much info. ;)

One thing - you might want to copy and paste the following table from the CHaracter Sheet under the PC page: The Glowmadness chart.

Could you definitely copy and paste the Advancement Table - and fill in what advancement you took at 0XP (remembering our House Rule of an extra advance at beginning).

May want to shade every 2nd skill if you are into that.

Languages: Just "Sky Speak". See separate thread on this.

Maybe remove all the "Adj:" tabs I have to let people know where to put Adjustments.

Encumbrance: Change from Str x10 to Str x5.

It is cool to base your PC on the guy from Firefly, but I am not sure I would use the exact same picture? Perhaps the sme personality with a diff pic would enable people to relate better, without the 'baggage'. But up to you.

Cheers and thanks for doing this early.

EDIT: You might also wish to increase your Insight skill (a skill I added to SW and it is on the latest copy of Character Sheet under the PCs Page).

Character Sheet by ConnorsConnors, 09 May 2012 06:23

One thing - you might want to copy and paste the following tables from the CHaracter Sheet under the PC page: The Glowmadness chart (though I see you did your own :)).

Could you definitely copy and paste the Advancement Table - and fill in what advancement you took at 0XP (remembering our House Rule of an extra advance at beginning).

I would get rid of all the skills you don't have dice in. (And shade every 2nd one if you are into that). Also remove and redistribute your Guts d4. AS stated in the Delux update we are not using Guts. (I have a thread on this).

You can remove Grit and Sanity. We won't be using those.

Languages: Just "Sky Speak". See separate thread on this.

Under flintlock - inc in the adj line things like how long to reload. Inc benefits of Musketeer Edge.

Under Toughness: where it says 'mods' write Brawny +1, so we know it has been added.

Encumbrance: Change from Str x10 to Str x5.

Cheers and thanks for doing this early.

Character Sheet by ConnorsConnors, 09 May 2012 06:12

I have started tyrping up the Pregens.

I have added the Elf Ex-Oakthorn to the bottom of the PC Page.

I will not actually add write-ups to the actual PC page unless someone actually chooses the PC. (Then they might do it for us ;)).

You could use these as egs to what extra tables and charts to add to your own sheet. Please check it out to see how it is done.

EDIT: Orc Warpriest character sheet added.
EDIT2: Wildling scavenger added too.
EDIT3: Drakin sorcerer also added.
It's been a productive night (after working til after 6 then popping down to Hockey training) ;) Anyway, I hope all this isn't for nothing. Please look over the Pregens if you need a PC. Bed now.
EDIT4: Next night. I have just spent hours on the Glowborn Songpriest. I thought the Orc Warpriest took a while. This Glowborn has cleric spells and one involves summoning a companion, so that involved stats too. Anyway, he/she to is attached to the PC Page.
All probably a waste of my time, as all players I have heard from are doing their own PCs. Anyway, Nicho (and my boys if they play) will need one and I guess they can be backups. Leigh?
EDiT5: Well the last one was fast - the Human Ex-Sky Pirate turned scavenger. That means all the pregens from the book are now all typed up. People need to choose them.

I have posted an example PC (the elf) under the PC Page.

Please check to see it your PC looks like this, including the new tables etc.

OH, and the Encumbrance is wrong on the original sheets. Encumbrance values are Str x5 (not x10).

Re: Character Sheets - Eg PC by ConnorsConnors, 09 May 2012 02:55

No where in any of the books can I find anything mentioned about Languages.

So, what I am ruling is that everyone speaks the same language throughout the SKies. Some races may have old languages, but I am calling them Ancient or Unique in that you would need training in them (Language skill) to know them. Such as studying Dwarf Runes.

Otherwise your PC simply speaks "Sky Speak"…that is what I have called it anyway ;)

I reloaded the Sundered Skies Character Sheet under the PCs page.

I have removed all the irrelevant skills (inc Guts) and Secondary stats (Grit & Sanity). I also added the Advancement Table to the sheet and a section to write a brief BG/Personailty and add Pic, so you only need the main PC sheet (not the ABPQ one). I also added a Glowmadness Tracker - like Wounds and Fatigue.

If you have already done your PCs, could you please Copy & Paste these last two tables onto your sheet? Thanks.

Re: Character Sheets by ConnorsConnors, 09 May 2012 01:02

OK, it seems I have found something to kickstart this.

Your PCs will be on the island/city of Shadowhaven (see the Gazette in Setting Book/Player's Guide). In particular you will be in the trade centre known as The Nexus. Traders from all over the Skies meet and exchange salvage here.

You need a reason for your PC to be here. You can start knowing each other, just some members of the group or start knowing no one (as long as you are not likely to be antagonistic when the PCs obviously get thrown together).

All adventures I have suggest Seasoned Rank, BUT I am not going to do that for a number of reasons: I reckon the extra PCs we have will make up for lack of power; we have the 'bennies left over have a chance to turn to XP' means you have he chance to advance faster anyway; Nicko (and I, and Chaddy I think) expressed interest in a lower 'level', grittier game; and, well, because you are playing 'my' game, and you all know I am the Evil DM! ;)

So please finish the PCs with a reason for being in Shadowhaven…even if you have a pregen in mind, b/c they don't come with 'start in Shadowhaven backgrounds'.

Campaign Start by ConnorsConnors, 07 May 2012 10:29

Thanks. Had a read. Sounds interesting. Would really suit a campaign where I could gear the adventures to your backgrounds (like Blair's). (Like our Deadlands campaign was supposed to be).

Unfortunately, with a convention, there won't really be time to follow up on most of the info :( But I really appreciate you guys putting in some effort here. Perhaps we should save this for a campaign ;)

It is looking less and less likely that i will actually be running this at ConnorsCon2012 :( For reasons/discussion see the CC What To Play thread back at Connors Campaigns.
