This is the OOC thread for the From the Ashes game.  It has three players, though more might be added IF the game progresses well.
Link to recruiting thread which contains some setting information.

Question for the players: Do you want to roll for loot, etc?

Unless anyone has anything that affects it, I imagine it will just slow down a pbp game.

I'm not sure I understand the question. Do you mean rolling for loot before the game starts (kind of to determine what we start out with), have random loot during the game rather than pieces that you select, or have us do the actual rolling when we get to an encounter with loot?

If the last one, the answer is a definite no. As spinningdice already said, that takes way too much time and I don't see the benefit.

Understood.  I'll either predetermine what there's or roll for anything out of the ordinary.

Working on my character, and I have a few questions:

1) Can the Gore I attack be used with Pummel? I assume no, since pummel says the damage can only be subdual.

2) If my Int increases to an even number, do I retroactively get the associated bonus skill points?

3) What kind of reputation is most appropriate for a ruin delver? I would assume Adventurer, but I can see Military as well, depending on the delving.

4) What kind of alignments are available? How common is religion?

Bronn

"Bronn? Yeah, I know him. He's the guy wrapped in the travel cloak back in the corner over there. No, he never takes it off, and he always pulls the hood in his face, even in here where there is no sun. Yeah, he's an orc, they don't like the sun so much. Wouldn't dare tell him to take it off, either. He's six-and-a-half feet tall, and weighs twice of you. You don't often see that much muscle in one place. Keeps to himself most of the time, but if you start talking about the ruins like you know 'em, he'll edge a bit closer and listen. He's been there quite a few times, and I heard say that he's a great guide. Quiet, but reliable. Hardly takes any other jobs."

Q2 at least has been in the FAQ before and it's been said that all stat changes apply retroactively.

1) No, as you pointed out.  Now should you wish to make a Gore attack and in the process of pummeling something (that's lower case 'p') then be my guest.

2) spinningdice beat me to this.

3) Based on the back story you presented, I would say Adventurer.

4) Religion exists but there are no miracles.  (It just didn't fit with the world.)  I'll get something posted here in a bit.

Here's an initial draft of my character, Baxton Tinfoot. Still working on his fluff, and I'm uncertain with my selection of Ghost Basics over some other covert feat. This look all right so far?

OK, my character's all set. I have one more interest to blow, so if there is an appropriate language or local study, let me know.

The corrupting magic still makes me want to play a summoner, but this guy will work for now.
