Character Narrative Development:
  • Players can keep the same character appearance and name when adopting a new class to maintain the continuity of a character's identity unless the character dies in the course of the campaign.
  • Players need not re-roll new stats & attributes, but any change in skills or abilities which would effect attributes must be adjusted for.
  • Class attribute requirements must still be met to transition a character to a new class.
  • Any rewards acquired through Benny purchases will be retained through character development unless the character dies in the course of the campaign.
  • If playing a Black Market O.C.C., in order to retain one's BM Abilities when transitioning to a new class, two preconditions must be met:
    • You must remain affiliated with the Black Market
    • Your character's new O.C.C. must be one which is plausibly related to the Black Market, but which simply preceded the BM SB (i.e., Smuggler, Forger, etc.)


Note: My general guidelines regarding R.C.C.'s are: Can the R.C.C. select an O.C.C.? Are they MD beings? Do they automatically start with psionics or spell-casting? Are they not found in places like the burbs? A yes to any of those three questions resulted in a nixing of that race as a 1st level option. More will be added to later levels, of course. Likewise, OCCs will likely be changed to different levels and expanded upon.

HUMBLE ORIGINS CAMPAIGN
Our cast of characters emerge from the grit and strife of urban decay to find their destiny and their fortunes in a war-torn world. (Player-directed w/GM interventions.) Given that the Warrens is the ghetto of Merctown, and the heart of crime, gangs, black market activity, and blanketed with poverty and desperation, everyone's going to start with very little and will through opportunity, luck, and guile make their way to greater opportunities, and potentially the means to make their way out of the Warrens and into the wider world.

Character Creation
  • All characters start at 1st level experience.
  • All characters will use the character creation rules on EU to get started.
  • Substitute class and race restrictions (listed below) for those on EU.
  • Character sheets will be posted here.
  • Vital information and stats from the character sheet will then imported into the character sheet for that character on Roll20.

Tales from the Warrens

+1 Benny to each player who recounts the events of the mission from his or her character's perspective.

Edit for clarity: "Mission" was underlined in order to distinguish the difference between sessions (which happen every month) and missions (which are entire narrative arcs).

Re: Rifts

Postby Selenidaria » Sat Jan 27, 2018 9:53 pm

An associate of mine told me and some other "mutual aquaintences" about a large shipment that the Greenskins had coming in. He figured out when and where the shipment was coming. The night after the shipment arrived, myself and several others gathered in an alley way on the west side of the warehouse. One of them, I can remember, passed out gas masks to everyone. At first everyone was peeking over the 7' tall fence when an ogre was spotted patrolling the grounds. I eventually work up the nerve to climb over the fence. As I try to make my way stealthily to land a hay maker on the back of the ogre guard's head, I got spotted by another guard.

It was at this time that one of my other mutual aquaintences hopped over the fence and attacked the second guard that spotted me. While he had him engaged, I turned, drew my long swords, and advanced on the first guard I had spotted. I started off my slashing both of my swords at his head, but only caught him across the torso, doing some damage. He swung his sledgehammer at me, but I used one of my swords to bat it away while I took my opportunity and landed a mighty blow across his head, which caused him to retreat. As he retreated, I dropped my sword in my right hand and pulled my revolver, "Big Nasty", and prepared to fire on the ogre guard when I notice a Larmac advancing on me, wielding a large busted pipe, while the other one retreated, so I took a step back and fired a shot at him instead, which hit but had virtually no impact.

Seeing the minimal damage Big Nasty had on the Larmac's body, I decided to take a different approach and aim at his head. He realized that while a shot to his body might have stung, a shot to his head would have hurt even more, so he rushed me and wacked me hard with his pipe, causing seams to rip and tear. Before I had a chance to respond to the Larmac's assault, I get pushed from behind by the other ogre guard that had seen me earlier. I try to fire off a round into him but he knocks Big Nasty out of my hands. Right after that had happened, his leg gets blown off by Mike, who I think wants to become a Juicer eventually.

The Larmac is bribed by one of the guys, Pascale, I think it was? I don't remember exactly who it was as I went and picked up Big Nasty where it got flung from my hand. I cautiously move forward with Big Nasty in my right hand and the lead pipe in my left, where I then recovered my sword I had dropped when I pulled out Big Nasty, then went another 20 feet or so where a smoke grenade had been set off. I couldn't see through it, but I could hear one of the other ogre guards calling out for one of his buddies, but they didn't notice me or the scuffle in the front of the garage, so I returned to the door where they were working on picking the lock. The lock got picked and they opened the door a crack, then one of them went inside. I lost track of them at that point as a small goblin had snuck up to us and tried to attack us. I tried fighting it, and as it slashed it's vibro-knife at me, I knocked it out of it's hand, which I immediately picked up from the ground. I honestly don't know why it needed to use it as it was just as capable of damaging things as the vibro-knife would have been able to do. I hit it a few times while it swung at me and shredded the rest of my bomber jacket. I backed off and shot at it with Big Nasty while it returned the favor with a civilian pistol, hitting me each time. After getting hit a few times, I knew it was time to get the hell out of Dodge, so I ran out the front gate and down the road. The little goblin followed to the gate, and ordered two ogres to chase after me.

I eventually lost them and got back to the main road as I see the rest of the crew barreling down the road in the truck from the warehouse, so I grabbed a hold and they drove by and pulled myself in. Two ogres on hovercycles were hot on our trails, so I kneeled down and pulled out my blanket. I went to toss it at one of the ogres but somehow it got wrapped around my head. I got dis-entangled from it, and saw Alex about to fall out of the back of the truck because Chuck took a hard turn down a narrow alley, and I tried to grab onto her, but I missed. Thankfully for Alex, Pascale was there to grab onto her jacket, saving her from falling out. The hard turn that Chuck had made caused one of the ogres to crash into the corner of the building, but the other one managed to make the turn as well. And another Larmac on a hovercycle joined the chase. The ogre was blasted away by Pascale (I think), so I tried throwing the blanket at the Larmac's head, but it flew too high. He gunned his bike and jumped from the bike to truck. As the Larmac landed, I clocked him hard on the jaw, but it had no effect. Then from out of no where, Mike lowered his shoulder and rushed at it, shoving it out of the truck.

We eventually were able to feel confident that we lost the tail, we ditched the truck, and brought the loot back to our place, where I crashed on the pool table.
