 How Do We Roll?

Go down 

How do we roll?
1) I roll for most extraneous stuff, I.E. your perception rolls, and you all send me rolls when you state your action as Victory did.

2) P.M. tag for rolls, I send a request, you send a roll... really only works if we check it fairly fast.

3) I post spoiler boxes based on what DC's you meet. I.E. upon 3 successes you would open a spoiler box and see what happens, but it would contain less info than the 4 successes box.

4) other options that i havent thought of, I.E. you guys come up with ideas.

So now we get into rolling questions. Ive given this some thought as to how this will work. You obviously can see what ive chosen to do for the first roll, but I dont think this will be standard practice. I would like to take a poll of what people would prefer to do. Options are:

1) I roll for most extraneous stuff, I.E. your perception rolls, and you all send me rolls when you state your action as Victory did.

2) P.M. tag for rolls, I send a request, you send a roll... really only works if we check it fairly fast.

3) I post spoiler boxes based on what DC's you meet. I.E. upon 3 successes you would open a spoiler box and see what happens, but it would contain less info than the 4 successes box.

4) other options that i havent thought of, I.E. you guys come up with ideas.

Which ever way would work best for you guys. Frankly the only one that bothers me is #2, since I know people have a real life and will be gone for a few days sometimes. Anywho, let me know what you guys think and we can implement a rolling system for the future.

I personally am for #1, just for ease of facilitaing the game and I trust our GM. But I also leave it up to the rest of the group as well.

I voted for option 1. For its first test it worked well, but I don't know how well it would work for combat. That's my only reservation about it.

I should also note that the option the Major and I are talking about are for mundane, non-combat related rolls.

Since we're discussing such things, I had forgotten to ask until just now: Can you roll on skills that you are untrained for? For instance, I have no spellcraft skill, but a spellcraft + perception roll is being called for.

There is no trained/untrained skills in this system. All ranks in skills give you is extra dice. If you have no ranks in that skill you just get the stat for the roll, thus gimping but not impossible.

I like #1. It saves us from waiting for everyone to check in and post their rolls.

I think im gonna refrain from voting. Particularly because I came up with them and Im just testing to see what you guys want to do. If you are gonna be doing this for non combat only, decide what you want for combat. So far the way I'm envisioning this working in combat is if you guys told me your rolls of what you want to do and what you think might happen, and anything you dont include I'll roll for you. Sound good?

Oh also I find it funny that option 4 is voteable. Kinda silly to have that up there with no ideas being said. But since it does say you guys choose something I'm gonna vote for that one cause it makes sense.

Sounds good to me.

Since when do we have to make sense?

I threw it in there as an option since that way you would actaully have to look to see if someone made an alternative suggestion. Now you know!

So far one person has a suggestion to make that they have yet to reveal to us. It wasn't me.

I like #1 for the mundane rolls, skill checks and all, 'cause it makes sense. And if it makes sense to Bubbles, then everyone can understand it.

Whelp I guess we shall be going with #1 then. Two people havent voted yet, but they would still be out voted. Thus I shall start secretly rolling things for you like perception rolls and other crap. When we get to the combat I'll put out a call for actions + rolls.

On a side note, Anyone seen Gurthoron lately? He hasnt been posting anywheres.

I think they have both been "red flashy thinged" by the MIB, since Fuzzball's profile doesn't show up on memberlist anymore and they were well last Friday when we saw them.
