The Lonely Shore: a shipwreck RTD
« on: September 30, 2018, 09:49:31 pm »

The Lonely Shore
An island shipwreck RTD
A roll-under d20 + RtD d6 game about a group of seaman trying to survive on a tropical island in the early 19th-century. Highlights include: random character generation, possible murder-cultist characters, and some rules that make it a bad idea to kill the captain, but kind of okay to off the stow-away.

Those who have passed on:
-Fritz "Old Man" Williams, a goodly carpenter. Was messily devoured by a tiger while out looking for food in the jungle. Coincidentally, the tiger was also out looking for food in the jungle, but this common goal was not enough to unite the two in friendship.

I figure at some point, you're just gonna run outta fucks to give and just off yourself whenever you get hurt at all. It's not like there's any downsides to it. Hangover? Suicide will fix that. Stubbed your toe? Suicide. Headache? Suicide. Papercut? Suicide.

Rolled 97, but I don't really want to play as the ship's captain. Is it fine if I play instead as a minor noble (98-99) and take the -2 Luck?

Duke Adalhard I of Regensburg
9 Physique
15 Wit
7 Personality
(17 -2) = 15 Luck

A somewhat deaf middle aged noble that constantly shouts in faux german.

Immortality like that would be even more game breaking than four Aaron's in one place.
You're both so obviously scum that this is a surprisingly difficult decision.

I want in on this!

I have rolled... a 5. :(
Guess I'm a stowaway, then.

Physique: 12
Wit: 10
Personality: 11
Luck: 12
Stats are... decent, at least.

Is your role just to +1 whatever Glass says.
Yep, as ever, I bestow upon Glass the expected +1
I'm gonna say we go with whatever Glass's idea is.

Hey welcome everyone! Thanks for joining. I think I'll start the first round later this evening, PST, assuming more join by then.

Glass: The stow-away is now resistant to Exhaustion, and dies at 7 steps, instead of 6.

Randomgenericusername: Yes, that is alright. Please note that Duke Adalhard I is secretly a murder-cultist (with special Murder-cultist rules). If this is unacceptable, feel free to choose a different class.

My dear Aigre, dinosaurs are quite extinct at this time!

I tweaked a couple little rules. Nothing major, just give it a skim sometime. This might keep happening as I try and give the game some more kick to it, some more drive.

Extremely poor physique, but that stat is for the lower classes anyway.

Don't worry about being useless: With such stats, you might be the first one to be (voluntarily, of course!) sacrificed in hard times. *wink*

I'm far from useless, I've got gold and someone has to tell the lower classes how to do their jobs.

But I am already looking forward to being violently murdered by the deaf noble.
