    What do you want to know?

    And there we go.

    The Island has come far and we've had many different ways of doing things, this is probably the least homebrewed TI has ever been, but that may just be a good thing, it could let us focus on what really matters in the RP. I think this will turn out great.
    Let's see, how much Ruby knows about the rods, what Ruby might know about Naza'arim and that Balnazzar guy he mentioned, and finally what Ruby knows about Fortune and it's layout.

    I consider it to always be quite important to know what character do and don't know.

    Yey. This ↑ is my plan. Less building, more doing.

    I'll edit my post to include this.

    Edit:
    Done.

    Edit2:

    So I'm thinking I might switch the 7th Seal quest to another more neutral quest line, and making that simply a personal side quest for Epsilon. However, with that, Epsilon will likely join another group, unless BE decides to leave or make a new character. There are enough people who have asked to join to make this a thing.

    If this happens, and you do get a insidious character like Epsilon in a good/neutral party, I do expect you all to apply by the rules, even at the cost of slightly metagaming their personalities or editing the character slightly to allow coexistence (at least within the party). If a time comes when betrayal is necessary and appropriate for the narrative, either the campaign will end, the betrayer(s) will leave to join another group or become NPCs, or other alternative tbd.

    I mean, The Quest for Five has a Neutral Evil, Chaotic Evil, and Lawful Good all in the same party. If we can make it work with only the small amount of banter about racism and Acies being better than everyone else anyone can do it.

    Charmander27 Moderator Staff Member Moderator

    I suspect that everyone has it in them to do so. I just have to come up with something else that sounds fun as an overarching task/theme and can link to other interesting things in the mean time.

    Editing magic made this:

    Probably a good time to start this again. Will port over the most relevant and recent posts for context.

    Edit:
    Done. Moved stuffs.

    So, where is OOC 2.0? Did you delete it? I realize this is the same thread but I'm talking about the posts.

    Yep, Char deleted it.

    Yeah, why? Is there something you need from it?

    Edit:
    It's visible for now, but I'll probably delete it again soon.

    Nah, I'm just a bit sentimental. You did after all delete somewhere around 5770 posts.

    So, I originally made the 5e group for fun as an easy accessible repository of information since I play 5e stuff a lot now irl. However, now that we are using it in TI, would you like the groups to be combined to one? Would that be easier/preferable for you guys and gals?

    I'm also going to probably merge the 3.5 threads into one super info dump and put it somewhere, because there is quite a lot of information which is well organized (imo), that I don't want to lose.

    Having all the info here would probably be easier than having to throw the link around to a completely different Social Group.

    Since I didn't pay close attention to the old OC thread before it got deleted, do we start completely from scratch, or do we just reset levels and/or equipment?

    Also we start at level 2 for Soldiers and Spies, right?
