This is the OOC topic for A Dying Breed. This thread contains the rules of the RPG, a character list with links to everyone's sheets, and conversations about what's going on.
A Dying Breed will run on the usual Errant rules, but here are a few refreshers.
Please note that you do not have an abilities list, but that doesn't mean there are no rules about what you can and cannot do...
I've tried to leave things more open, but when it comes to combat, general Errant rules apply. In combat, take only one action at a time. Always assume an enemy (or enemies) aren't cannon fodder unless I state otherwise. If you're allowed to instantly kill something in your post, I'll say so in the DM post.
This RP will potentially have boss fights. These boss fights have the same rules as any other fight, but your chances of being killed or critically injured are much higher, so be sure to think about your actions wisely.
That said, please always do something in your posts. This is meant to be a character-driven experience, so I encourage you to interact with other players and also with NPCs (companions or otherwise). I'm going to be trying to give everyone time to interact with each other, since interacting with other characters is - in my opinion - the most fun and important part of a RPG.
That, and this campaign will center on interaction, mystery, and intrigue. This is not a combat-focused RPG, though there will be combat at some points.
Your posts should always have at least one action or some dialogue so that you're doing something instead of just standing around thinking to yourself. No one can react to that, so it's really very pointless for a RPG. I'm also not taking eating, drinking, and sleeping into careful account, here, so don't focus too much on trying to end your posts doing something like that. If you sleep when everyone else is interacting, you aren't giving yourself a rested bonus, you're just missing out on the fun.
If you have some form of magic or you are a unique race with special abilities, please consult me if you're confused as to what you can and cannot do. It's always better to ask than to assume and just make a post if it's something crazy. But hey - if you have magic, you probably can do something crazy! So just ask. Otherwise, use the wiki as needed to help.
If you receive a PM about this campaign, chances are it'll be in-character (I'll state otherwise if it isn't). I'll be PMing people information that only they are privy to, and it's their choice whether or not to share it with their fellow players. I may also have some interactions via PMs, so that players are not privy to those private interactions, either (if this happens, I'll specify this too, and if the conversation gets interrupted in-game the PM chain gets interrupted, also). If you want to keep something in-character secretive and drag one of my NPCs off to some private place, feel free to do so and then you can begin the PM chain. However, in-character PMing between players isn't permitted unless I'm also in the PM conversation (as DM, I have to know everything to give everyone the best experience).
Again, this shouldn't be used too often, as all players should be included when at all possible.
There will be no group penalties for people not posting, but if you get behind and want to catch up, please don't hesitate to just PM me and I can get you up to speed so you can get back in the game. It shouldn't be that hard to stay caught up with the RPG.
