[OOC Thread] Predator: First Blood
« on: May 09, 2010, 04:30:50 AM »

You've learnt the basics of the kill from your mothers.

You've learnt of Honour and the Hunt from your sensei.

You've slain beasts for food.

You've tested yourselves against each other.

And now at last, the Elders have decreed it is time for you to be Blooded. This is your chance to earn the right to wear the Shroud, to see beyond seeing, to kill from afar; to gain the means to hunt the Soft Meat.

But to do that, first you must prove yourself by hunting the Hard Meat.

Success means Honour.

Failure means death.



Looking for around 5 characters of third level generated using Fantasy Craft and this thread. Melee & Hurled weapons only.

The keen upgrade may be added multiple times and doesn't increase weight.

Campaign qualities: Code of Honour (Rep penalties for being a douche), Deadly combat (increased threat range), Hewn Limbs (lower masive damage threshold), Triumphant Heroes (Rep for crits), Wire Fu (acrobatic shenanigans)

Ah crap! I read it as three 5th levels. That's annoying.

Well, given there's only 2 people signed up so far, I might have to come up with a different scenario.

Let us know how you want to do it. Friday is going to hold fire on character creation until you decide.

I may write one up.  How often do you plan on updating?

I'm definitely interested.

Is there any precedent for Predators using weapons akin to double-bladed swords? The idea sounds iffy.

In the end, it may use kukris or fist-blades.

The combi stick is essentially a double-bladed sword, and I'm sure they've turned up in the comics.

Call me tentative while I figure out if I can support this habit. :)

For the moment, I assume we'll be operating as a group of noobs, yes? I mean, this is a group game and all.

Is this Solider-only? Or can a Yautja do Scout, Captain, Explorer, etc? How would something like a Captain's PL or a Lancer's Companion work in a setting like this?

The movie Predators has a hunter with an attack 'dog'.

*EDIT* Incidentally, Jon are we set on level 3 now? If we are then Emma and I will get cracking.
