About Consumer

Postby Consumer » Mon Jun 11, 2018 8:05 pm

I borrowed the format of this from a previous GM, I liked the way it sat. I have combed over it and this is basically how I will be running things. I’m not to pushy, as a matter of fact I’m pretty laid back. I mean we’re all here to have fun, so lets do that.

Name: John
Hangout: GarrisonBurne
Playtimes: I will attempt to post once every seven days either afternoon or evening, everything permitting. Plus if needed I will post mini-updates as needed throughout. I am available most days via IM, sometimes I accidentally leave it running though so if I don’t get back to you in say 20 minutes just leave me a message or PM me.

About Me:
I’m a 37 year old male from Ohio. I’ve been playing RPG’s for over 25 years now. I have been playing Rifts and Palladium games the whole time, my first game was TMNT and Other Strangeness. On to some other things about me, I am an amateur artist, and according to my friends am fairly good at doodling characters. I just recently got a scanner so some of the references may just be by me. I am a fan of Karaoke, anime, and Doctor Who, but probably not in that order.

Posting on time
The standard on the site is once a week. I won’t lie occasionally I have had problems with that. Life happens, you get busy, your super tired, you forget… No biggie, just let me know if this happens, an IM or PM works wonders, I respond to either media. Now that were past that, we move on to the punishments. If you haven’t posted in a week, and I haven’t heard from you in any way, I’ll send you a message and a warning. The second time in a row will result in being listed as a flake, and all that entails. Now that’s two weeks in a row not a week here and a week there… but there is a caveat to this, If your consistently missing weeks, over a long enough period that I feel that it may be hurting the flow of the game, I will give you a specific kind of warning and stick to it, but that will be a rare case indeed.

Putting in some effort
Like it says above, I need to see a post from you each week. Occasionally a quick and dirty post is acceptable if you are having a bad week, but you should be putting a certain level of effort into at least 1 post per week. If you are regularly posting 1 liners then we will probably be having a talk. I am willing to coach you a bit if needed, and for those who are not native English speakers there will be more leniency, but if I don't see improvement I will recommend you try gaming somewhere else. Nothing personal. I will reward quantity and quality. But at the same time, don't throw a wall of cruddy text up just to score some exp.

Spelling and Grammar
This is closely related to 'Putting in some effort'. With the exception of the non-native English speakers, I expect - make that require reasonably well written posts. This is a game of writing. If you can't write, it's not for you. If you take the time to ensure correct spelling and grammar in your posts, I will notice and reward it.

Note: During exposition, I expect good spelling and grammar. Dialogue is different; using incorrect spelling and poor grammar for character flavor might be entirely appropriate, so long as it is not taken too far. I still need to be able to understand you.

Note, Part II: I can only speak Trade 4. If you use another language for flavor text and it is something that I need to understand, please make sure you translate it for me.

Consumer’s Post Formatting Rules
All Dice rolls will be made using the Site's built-in dice roller, no exceptions.

Perception: 1d20
Just in Case (JIC): 1d20, 1d100 (percentiles)

Perception and JIC rolls must be rerolled following every GM post (ie, once weekly, and including Mini-updates). If you are a star player, and posting more than one post per week, you may carry over rolls until the next GM post.

Skill Check, Passed: Skill check in GREEN: (Cooking: 50%/70% Pass)

Skill Check, Failed: Skill check in RED: (Cooking: 80%/70% Fail)

Exposition: Regular Font

Spoken Text: Bold and in quotation marks: Bob says, "Howdy, pard."

Radio Communcations: Bold and blue: Biggs flicks the switch on his comm. unit and reports, "Red Squadron, standing by."

Internal Monologue: Italics, no quotation marks: Bob nods at Sarah. Nod and smile, nod and smile. They'll never suspect anything. He smiles. It's forced.

Telepathy: Italics and blue: Bob sends a mental message to the waitress across the room: Table 4 could use a drink refill.

Dual Personalities: Color change for secondary personality. Legend at the bottom of your signature file. Do not use GREEN or RED for the different voices, as these are for skill checks. Primary personality should follow the regular text rules (no colour change, please).

Signature Files
Your signature file must include, at a minimum (and as applicable):
A link to your PC sheet. format is like this:
[url =http://www.blablabla.com/PCSheet]Name of PC here.[/url] ((take out the space in between the url and =))

-Current Hit Points/Total Hit Points
-Current SDC/Total SDC
-Current MDC/Total MDC
-Current ISP/Total ISP
-Current PPE/Total PPE

-Worn armor and status of said armor
-Weapons and ammo carried on your person, and the location of them.
-Weapons that are currently wielded/drawn

-Constant Effects
-Current Effects/Conditions

OOC Chat
Please post to OOC chat only with your Rogues account. This is just a common courtesy.

The Importance Of Fun
This is a game. We are all (even me) here to have fun. Try not to take anything too seriously. If something is a serious problem please let me know ASAP, but do not let little things bother you, its just a game. As a wise man once said. ”Don’t try to take life to seriously, you’ll never get out alive.”

XP Guidlines

These are my general guidelines for awarding experience. They have been pilfered and modified from other EU GM's. These are only guidelines, and will not be strictly followed. I just want to give an idea of how I am reviewing folks.

:arrow: Very poor posts get 10 xp.
:arrow: Poor posts get 25 xp.
:arrow: Average posts get 50 xp.
:arrow: Better than Average posts will get 75 xp.
:arrow: Top Rate posts will get 100 xp.

:!: Extra posts beyond the standard once weekly post receive 10 additional xp each.
:!: Not posting Perception and JIC may drop the post one rating (my judgment).

:arrow: Making me laugh (+50 to 100 xp.)
:arrow: Making me have any emotional reaction (+100 to 200 xp.)
:arrow: Making me think (e.g. “is that possible?”, “what the hell is my NPC going to do now?”) (+50 to 100 xp.)
:arrow: Surprising me (e.g. reactions I did not see possible, completely off the wall tactics) (+50 to 100 xp.)
:arrow: Most prolific poster, a single award to a single character (only applicable to adventure threads) (+100 xp.)
:arrow: First Poster: First person to post after GM update. (+50 XP)
:arrow: Long Post Bonus: 4x the normal long post bonus (normally +50xp for a long four-ish plus paragraph post)
:arrow: PC to PC Interaction: +50xp per PC interacted with in the post. Interaction is at least three sentences, including action and dialogue. These must be story driven, e.g. 'Prothor said "Hi," to Sorrenson. Prothor smiled at Sorrenson. Prothor said, "Bye," to Sorrenson.' won't cut it.

How Books Experience Table Applies
Performing Skills – Must be appropriate/applicable usage – 25 xp Pass or Fail
Clever, futile idea – My judgment based on character/situation – 25 xp
Clever, useful idea/action – My judgment based on character/situation – 100 xp
Quick-thinking idea/action – Must be first post after mine, must change situation – 100 xp
Critical plan/action that saves life – My judgment based on character/situation – 200 xp
Critical plan/action that saves Many lives – My judgment based on character/situation – 400 to 1000 xp
Endangering Self to help Others – My judgment based on character/situation – 100 to 300 xp
Self-sacrifice – My judgment based on character/situation – 500 to 700 xp
Avoiding unnecessary violence – My judgment based on reaction to NPCs – 100 xp
Deductive Reasoning/Insight – My judgment based on character/situation – 100 to 200 xp
Good Judgment – My judgment based on character/situation – 50 xp
Playing in character – based on posts, see above.
Daring (clever or not) – My judgment based on character/situation – 50 to 100 xp
Killing/Subduing Menace – Must partake in battle, My judgment on menace level based on characters/NPCs helping out/Enemy abilities – 25 to 300 xp per Menace in encounter.

Post Definitions
Poor – No thinking/feeling in the post, not taking into account others' relevant posts.
Average – A short thought/feeling, bland speech, just making your required post.
Better than Average – Thoughts/feelings that give me an insight into what your characters personality is, speech that gives your character personality (accents, slang, etc...).
Top Rate – Better than average posts that are almost short stories in themselves.

Almost every post should include three types of writing:
1) Standard writing. This describes your characters actions, appearance, etc. This is always done in third person. 2) Introspection, what your character is thinking. 3) Spoken language.

If you have those three elements covered, you are least in the average range or better.

*Hands (2) - 13/25 each
Legs (2) - 60/120 each
** Head - 45/90
*** Main Body - 156/312
*Denotes a a small and difficult target to hit. Thus, it can only be hit when a character makes a called shot and even then the attacker is - 4 to
**Destroying the head of the power armour will eliminate all forms of optical enhancement and sensory systems. The pilot must then rely on their own senses. No power armour combat bonuses. The head is a small and difficult target to hit shielded by the air intakes and can only be hit by a called shot at -3 to strike.
*** Depleting the M.D.C. of the main body will shut the armour down completely, making it useless. Destroying a wing will make flight impossible but the suit can still make jet powered leaps and hover stationary above the ground.
Statistical Data
Speed: Running: 70 mph (113kpm) maximum. Note that the act of running does tire out its operator, but at 10% the usual fatigue rate.
Leaping: The powerful robot legs can leap up to 20' high or across unassisted by the thrusters. A jet thrust assisted leap can propel the armour up to 100' high and 200' across without actually attaining flight.
Flying: The rocket propulsion system enables the SAMAS to hover in stationary position or fly. Maximum flying speed is 360 mph (576kph), but cruising speed is considered to be 60-150mph (96-240kph). Maximum Altitude is 10,000 feet.
Flying Range: Nuclear power gives the SAMAS decades of life but the jet rockets get hot and need to cool down after a maximum of 10 hours of continuous flight at speeds above cruising or 24 hours at cruising speed.
Underwater Capabilities: The SAMAS can swim using the same types of paddling leg and arm movements as a human at a maximum speed of roughly 4mph (6.5kph). It can also walk along the bottom of the sea at about 20 mph (32kph). using the jet thrusters the SAMAS can travel on the surface of the water at 60mph (96kph) or underwater at 40 mph (64kph)
Maximum Ocean Depth: 2,000 feet
Height: 8 feet 6 inches tall from head to toe. The top mounted air intake jets add another 2 feet for an overall height of 10 feet, 6 inches.
Width: Wings Down: 3.7 Feet, Wings Extended: 16 feet
Length: 4 Feet, 10 inches
Weight: 680lbs fully loaded including laser gun and missiles
Augmented P.S.: 32
Cargo: None
Power System: Nuclear; average energy life is 20 years.
Weapon Systems
1. QR-12A SAMAS Laser Rifle
The standard "Main Gun" of the V-Sam is a heavy, rapid-fire laser rifle instead of the usual railgun. It is hooked directly to the nuclear generator in the power armour and requires no E-clips. However E-clips can be used separately or as a backup system, Standard E-Clips provide 20 Shots and Long E-clips provide 30 shots. Any heavy energy weapon or railgun may be substituted. There are some downsides to this weapon as it draws from the V-SAM's power reserves inflicting minor penalties.
-1 Initiative and reduce maximum speed by 10% during combat when used as a single shot weapon. These penalties remain in effect as long as the gun is turned on.

-2 on initiative, -1 strike and -20% to the V-SAM's speed when the weapon fires a triple pulse burst. These penalties last for an entire melee in which one burst is fired. This is not an accumulative effect so the penalty remains the same if one or multiple bursts are fired in a single melee.

• Weight: 24lbs
• Damage: 3d6 MD per single shot or 1d4X10 per rapid fire 3 shot pulse burst.
• Rate of Fire: Single or Pulse Burst but causes the power fluctuation penalties noted above.
• Range: 2,800 feet
• Payload: Effectively unlimited, A standard E-Clip (20 shots) or Long E-Clip (30 shots) can be substituted.
2. CM-2B Wing Mini-Missile Launcher

Vehicles and Robot Combat Vehicles

Postby Consumer » Mon Jun 11, 2018 8:10 pm

GAW-M113 Improved Armoured Personnel Carrier
Crew: Three; Driver, Gunner & Communications.
Troop Transport: Comfortably seats up to 24 heavy infantry or 14 power armour suits
M.D.C. by Location:
* Turret - 80
* Cupola Rail Gun - 50

*** Main Body – 168
* A single asterisk indicates a small and difficult target to strike, requiring the attacker to make a “Called Shot,” and even then the attacker is -2 to strike.
** Destroying one of the treads immobilizes the vehicle and requires 1d6X10+10 minutes to repair with a trained crew or three times as long with an inexperienced crew. Requires a Called Shot, same as above. Two sets of spares are carried
*** Depleting the M.D.C. of the main body destroys the vehicle beyond repair.
Statistical Data:
Land: 80 mph maximum on most surfaces. Reduce speed by half on ice and in mud deeper than 3'. Speed cross country is usually 45mph.
Maximum Range: 500 miles before requiring refuelling.
Height: 9'9"
Width: 8'4"
Length: 21'2"
Weight: 14 tons.
Cargo: Up to 5000lbs
Power System: Diesel
Weapon Systems:
Cupola Rail Gun
This is a copy of the NG-202. The turret must be manned by a gunner and can rotate 360 degrees and has a 90 degree arc of fire
• Mega-Damage: 1D4*10 M.D. per burst. One round does 1d4 MD
• Rate of Fire: Each burst counts as one melee attack
• Effective Range: 4000 feet
• Payload: 3,200 rounds (80 Bursts). Reloading the drum takes 15 minutes if done by hand. 5 minutes if done with robots and special equipment. One extra drum can be carried inside the vehicle.
Box Style Mini-Missile Launcher
• Mega-Damage: As Per Missile
• Rate of Fire: One at a time or volleys of 2,4 or 6
• Effective Range: 1 Mile
• Payload: 6 Missiles
Systems of Note:
Radio with 50 mile (80km) range.
Passive Night vision with 2000ft (610m) range.

*1 Reload for Railgun. 3 Reloads of standard mini-missiles (Half Frag, Half HE)

EX-5 Behemoth Explorer Robot
Model Type: EX-5
Class: Mobile Medical/Research Robot Vehicle
Crew: Three; one pilot, one copilot, one communications officer and can accommodate 20 to 40 passengers, or up to 60 under extremely cramped conditions.
M.D.C. by Location:
Upper Arms/Shoulders (2)—144 each
Forearms (2) — 240 each
Hands (2 large) — 72 each
*Hands (2 small, retractable) — 36 each
Legs (2) — 300 each
* Main Searchlight (1, lower front, large) - 18
*Side & Arm Searchlights (6) — 6 each
Top Mounted Searchlights (2) —12 each
**Sensor Array Turrets (2, rear) — 36 each
Pilot's Compartment — 240
Observation Deck (Top) — 360
***Main Body — 600
* A single asterisk indicates a small and/or difficult target to strike, requiring the attacker to make a "Called Shot", but even then the attacker is -3 to strike.
** Destroying one sensor turret in the rear has no significant impact on sensor readings. Knocking both out means both radar and sensor systems are gone. Note: The turret is a small and difficult target to hit. Thus, it can only be hit when a character makes a called shot and even then, the attacker is -3 to strike and must be in just the right position.
***Depleting the M.D.C. of the main body will shut the robot down completely, rendering it useless.
Statistical Data
Running: 40mph (64km) maximum.
Leaping: 10 feet (3m) high and lengthwise but counts as two melee actions and makes a profound thump or crashing sound.
Height: 60'
Width: 20'
Length: 82'
Weight: 25 tons fully loaded, but with empty cargo bay.
Physical Strength: Robotic P.S. 40.
Cargo: 15x40x12 storage area. 200 ton limit.
Power System: Nuclear; average energy life is 12 years.

Weapon Systems
Mini-Missile Forearm Launchers (2): Mounted on the side of each arm is a missile launcher.
Range: One mile (1.6km)
Damage: Varies with missile type. Standard issue is fragmentation and plasma.
Rate of Fire: One at a time or in volleys of two, three, or four.
Payload: 48 total, 24 in each arm. Hundreds can be stored inside the robot.
Hand to Hand Combat:
The Behemoth Explorer is not designed for combat so it gets half the number of attacks and reduce bonuses by half. PS 38 for large arms and hands, PS 21 for the small ones.
Large Arms/Claws: 3D6 M.D. punch and tear/pry, 2D6 M.D. crush, power punch 5d6+3 M.D.
Retractable Arms: 1D4 M.D punch and tear/pry. Power punch not possible.
Stomp or trample: 2D6 M.D.
Body Block: 2D6 M.D. with a 70% of knocking one's opponent down of equal size or smaller. Victims of knockdown loose initiative and one melee attack.
Sensor System Note: The Behemoth has some of the best sensory equipment available in a robot vehicle. All standard sensor systems plus the following:
1. Thermo-Imager: 2000' (610m)
2. Infrared and Ultraviolet Optics. Note: The infrared light beam can be seen by anybody who also has infrared optics and can be traced back to it's source. Smoke impairs the infrared beam, making it impossible to see.
3. Infrared Searchlights: 500' (152m)
4. Enhanced Radar: Can identify and simultaneously track up to 96 different targets. Range: 100 miles
5. Multi-Camera System (4): The cameras have telescopic lenses as well as macro-lenses for close work. Range: 4,000' (1,219m)

The massive Behemoth Explorer is an unusual robot vehicle: basically, a giant science laboratory and house trailer on legs .
Typically, the Behemoth will have a laboratory divided into three separate sections, ten separate living quarters that can accommodate 20 to 40 people comfortably (60 or so cramped), a communal dining/lounge/observation area (the glass enclosure on top of the main body) , and storage bay that can hold four small vehicles like hover cycles and a half dozen suits of power armor with room to spare . The pilot and crew compartment is located in the center protrusion on the nose of the robot, between the two huge searchlights. Four smaller spotlight turrets are located on the side of the robot in the front and toward the rear. Two smaller spotlights are on either side of the arms.
The arms are designed for investigation and well suited for grasping. A pair of smaller retractable arms are also housed in the forearms. The robot is used by expeditions, usual ly sponsored by wealthy kingdoms, to explore the wilderness.
The Behemoth has only a mini-missile launcher on the side of each arm as a means of protection. Sometimes, rail guns and laser turrets are added by energetic organizations, but too many weapons are a waste of time and resources, as the Behemoth Explorer is not suited for combat at all!

Rules Clarifications

Postby Consumer » Mon Jun 11, 2018 8:12 pm

Piloting Skill Rolls:

This is how I handle piloting skill rolls and their failures.

If you are behind the wheel of a vehicle, even hovering or sitting at idle, if the engine is on you must roll piloting. If you do not roll piloting I will use your JIC roll. Meaning if I need the JIC roll for something else, or if you fail that it is considered a fail of the 2nd and 3rd rolls. So do this right. You will get 25 XP for doing this. It's considered an essential part of the basic formatting of posts.

If you roll to pilot something and fail, roll again. If you fail that roll, then roll again. So you could be rolling up to three times.
1st Roll Success=Life is good
1st Roll Failure, 2nd Success: Minor Oops, player posts. No damage or anything just got 'er a little squirrely or something. Life is okay.
1st Roll Failure, 2nd Failure: Roll again.
1st Roll Failure, 2nd Failure, 3rd Success: Some badness. GM's post. Life is bad.
1st Roll Failure, 2nd Failure, 3rd Failure: Very bad badness. GM's post. Life sucks.

Silver Lining: You get XP for each of the attempts. They are considered separate skill rolls. IE, one for basic operation, one to recover from the error, one to minimize the severity of the incident.


1st Roll Failure: Whoops! Better recover.
2nd Roll Passed: Recovered, but post an error. Hovercycle is a little wobbly, vehicle was a little slidey or missed a gear. That kind of thing. You can post that. It'll be no big deal, just kind of an oopsie oh sh-t moment.
2nd Roll Failed: Roll again. Something bad will happen though, GM's call. Probably minor.
3rd Roll Passed: Something bad happened. This could be anything from damage to something fixable on scene to ending up somewhere you don't want to be. Who knows. GM will post accordingly.
3rd Roll Failed: Something very bad happens. This is a crash. GM will post and decide what happens.


Rufus is flying Marcus' medic pod with Archer's bleeding body in it.
He rolls Pilot: Hoverycles and has a 75% target. He rolls an 88.
He edits his post to roll again and succeeds this time, so he posts a whoops, got a little wobbly there better slow down!

In the weekly GM post, the GM posts that he was going so fast he drifted sideways and scraped the hoverpod against a building and did some damage.

In the weekly GM post, the GM posts that he was going so fast he missed a turn and careened into a building. Archer and Rufus both go flying and the pod tumbles. It's MDC and will survive, if banged up, but will Rufus and Archer?
