Am I the only one who feels making so many Look and Spot checks can get tedious?
I am actually missing the combined Perception check, and wonder if we might set up something of a Passive Perception so we don't need to constantly roll every tunnel or path we go down.
Well I will be honest theres not much about me to say I have spent most my life indoors playing computer games my faces are Role-playing Game I am not that good with social skills in person but am good with a screen in front of me I feel less nervous that I am going to screw up I've been mugged once and I didn't care about someone trying to beat me up I went chasing after the one that took my phone the most exciting thing about my life I would say.
Sounds good now tell us about your intelligence, you body strengths. You are not active? Can you run a block a two without getting winded? How well do you feel you look what do others think about you?
Well as far as running I can run and sprint a good distance before being winded in broad built with some strength behind me just never tested it but I do bring home the shopping so I can carry a good bit with my shoulders but my main strength is my mind.
You will need to use the first initial of your last name as well. Otherwise we will have two characters named Thomas which might be slightly confusing *wink*.
Okay, if you could, try to list it out a little more clearly.
Strength: If you don't have gym weight benchmarks or things of that nature to list, try letting us know how easily you can heft 50+ pound items and things of the sort
Dexterity: nimbleness of the fingers, throwing accuracy, adeptness with a gun/bow, anything of that nature.
Constitution: how long you can run, how easily you can get sick, your relative pain threshhold.
Intelligence: examples of pure reasoning ability, math, most sciences, puzzle solving, etc.
Wisdom: how often you forget your keys, how much in the way of so called "Common sense" you have, how likely you are to walk into a lamp pole because you were focused on something else.
Charisma: Its all about force of personality with this one and connecting with people. How easily do you know what to say to others? Can you get them to listen, or even take instructions from you?
Or, as some joker on the internet put it:
Strength is being able to crush a tomato.
Dexterity is being able to dodge a tomato.
Constitution is being able to eat a bad tomato.
Intelligence is knowing a tomato is a fruit.
Wisdom is knowing not to put a tomato in a fruit salad.
Charisma is being able to sell a tomato based fruit salad.
Please try to be honest with this.
While at it, it would be good if you described what kind of things you would get up to if this morning you were walking down your street back on earth, and that evening was told you'd need to defend yourself from goblins. Would you try and seek the mysteries of magic, or just grab a weapon and shield and start bashing?
Bear in mind that for this game, your character is YOU. You woke up one morning and got kidnapped to a world of beauty and danger. You get a bit of help adjusting and learning, but for the most part this is you dealing with a new reality.
Strength to start well weight I don't know that much but I can lift a couch or a small oak table easily but not for long as to dexterity I play console games that require fast finger movements constitution I don't get ill easily and can take a good few solid punches and shrug ot off but I do have a belly so not that fit puzzles are a thing I love a good puzzle game to test my mind wisdom I have walked into a lamppost a few times due to zoning out but I do have common sense and I'm easy to get along with just a bit hyper but once you get past that you would be surprised how insightful I am as to leadership depends on the situation if I see a way to do something I am not afraid to voice it though I will say you can be a hardass when I'm in full on serious mode perfect example once played a game online with a old neighbour and our teammates ditched us first round so I incapacitated there characters and went with my friend through the level to show I won't tolerate leaving your friends or teammates when they need you in other words I don't take chances with a liability.
