Pod 2--Warpath--Out of Character
« on: October 16, 2016, 06:18:36 PM »
So, you think you can run a faction, eh?

This is the thread for out-of-character interactions for the second pod of my forum RPG, which is playing as the Warpath. Current members of the Council of Tribes are:

Prozac/Ryvirath, BroodLord (control of recruitment, military deployments)
LargeNuggets, the Prophet (Research and Diplomatic precedence)

Sonicx110x4, Caller of the Warpath (+1 override)
Number11, Swift Hunter (Exploration and Security precedence, particularly on direction of covert ops)

If anyone has any questions about how to play, comments on strategy, or so on and so forth, here's the place to talk about it. The "in-character" thread will be coming on Sunday with the official start of the game, and I'd like to keep that limited to just budgets and other "official" Council posts.

The first order of business, as usual, is to determine the specific character roles. Potential roles include:

Caller of the Warpath, with +1 override power (an impactful and just all-around-useful skill to have)
Broodlord/broodmother/broodfather, with precedence on what types of beasts are recruited
The Prophet, with precedence on research initiatives

I'm very much open to suggestions on different types of role titles/abilities.

Each pod can have up to 5 players, so if you'd like to join this one comment below and I'll add you to the list. If you'd like to know more about the game or start up another pod, check out the official Rules thread

Well if you don't mind me being in 2 pods at once I'd totally jump in xD
No matter the problem, the solution is always a flying emberstarter.

I would be interested in participating. How about I play a role of Swift Hunter. Bonus: Make efficient use of EXPLORATION and SECURITY Budget.

Ecliptix, I'd rather have you play only a single pod at a time, particularly since this one has enough players already (especially with Number11).

Number11, I've added you to the pod.

Some notes: Recruitment amounts to breeding more troops. Research can go into combat bonuses or perhaps unlocking larger beasts--dragons, Hidden by Clouds, that sort of thing. Or you can propose your own project (Gin's Project Morningstar is a perfect example here)

For the first turn I was thinking of proposing a budget on Exploration, Security and Research. I was thinking we could research the landscape of foreign territories to establish hunting routes and pathways that help with hunting down foes and to allow for engagement with key enemy targets hiding in the back.

"There is no time to waste," the Swift Hunter intones. "Let us be prepared to meet again by the 22nd with our budgets, packleaders."

So do we post in the Warpath In Character on the 22nd october.

Please submit your in-character budget proposals by this Saturday, the 22nd. That way I can send out the next turn on Sunday (like with my FD pod). I know the turn's a little shorter than normal, but hopefully that won't be a problem.

seems like a plan, @Number11. Im just wondering if we should put points in defense because i have no idea if we are going to get atacked or not

P.S I would also like to do my budget after the project is shown

I think it would be good to put points into fortification and recruitment. I think my budget proposal on Exploration, Security and Research would fit with my character and I would hope that some of the other members would put points into fortification and recruitment.
