  • Happy 2020! This is where you can post out of character about the Six Kingdoms: Escapement (SKE) game until the end of March 2020. Please see the general rules, common sense guide, and BZPRPG rules of play for how to behave in this and all SKE topics. Lastly, the hope is to have an elevated power level in this RPG when compared to the main BZPRPG, but not to reach final season fighting anime where blocks or cities are being demolished with a single punch. Remember, your characters are part of a collectively told narrative and no one has plot armor. 

    I look forward to playing with you all!

    For the first week of January here are the narrative quests per faction:

    • Metru-Nui: seek the great discs hidden somewhere in the regional metrus for toa power.
    • Metru-Nui: explore the recently conquered island and plan the next assault.
    • League of Six: Recover from the recent attack on your island base.
    • League of Six: Take the merchant vessel to recover the lost tech.
    • Dark Hunters: Assassinate 
     

    Nuparu. Next week it'll be a player character with a bounty on their head. :P

  • Just to clarify something for the DH characters: were they given any instructions for what to do after eliminating the target? Do they need to present proof of their kill to someone, or will just leaving the body to be found be confirmation enough?

  • You can decide what would fit best for your character's signature style.

  • Hey @xccj and @Click, just wanted to let you know you have characters in the same Metru. With all the activity in Onu- I didn't want you two to miss each other.

  • So, how many characters are we each allowed? Just one?

  • you can have more than one character, i don't think Narrator made a limit. at least one player has two at the moment and i was planning on making another at some point myself

  • I was going to either make a Dark Hunter or Matoran soldier at some point.

  • There is no character cap. I recommend making as many as you can consistently play though.

  • Something something, big iron, notch on the pistol, yadda yadda. I'll wait for Knichou and Vyarik to react before I make a run for it.

  • Because we intend to destroy the in-game universe by then. It's just a matter of time. 

    Tick tock.

    Tick. Tock.

  • Should probably say that the GM has given me some leeway about what Tallea finds in the Archive database.

  • Do the Dark Hunters have some kind of official safehouse or base of operations they can regroup at in the city? 

    I'm assuming they have some kind of central location/s to report back to, given that they all received the same orders, but I wanted to double-check if you had something specific in mind, or if we're free to come up with something ourselves?

  • You may have a small personal safehouse for your hunter. There is no central meeting space in Metru-Nui, but you may liberally create locations or havens used by them.

  • My personal theory is that dark hunters receive orders by iStone - just like in John Wick, when TSO has orders every assassin in the city gets an annoying text message on their flip phone equivalents.

  • @Laval- Master of Energy, I'm sorry I didn't answer your question. I wanted to make sure I got to you. 

    Reasons:

    1. Most RPGs outside of the main BZPRPG used to be quarterly.
    2. This is a one off campaign (unless people demand a second arc in April).
    3. More punch and shorter story means less overall time commitment (hopefully).
    4. To shake things up!

    Let me know if you want to know more about the thought process.

  • It'll basically be a game of full-contact capture the flag. With weapons. And the flag is his head.

  • Sorry if I'm holding things up with the League arc in the gameplay thread; I'm not used to being part of a game that moves so quickly, the experience is new for me!

    I don't have time to post again this evening; but I'll try and drop another Varxii post tomorrow, for sure. Again, sorry if my slowness is causing a problem!
