So I whipped up a first draft of the map so people can get an idea of placement. Let me know if you want your abode moved, this is a rough

It's just the immediate local area. The area to the north is hills (don't have an asset for it) that eventually become mountains. To the south and west is alooot of forest. There's a settlement to the south and a fishing village to the East that occasionally trades, but not often, since the Hamlet isn't very popular. There's a dilapidated 'gatehouse' near the roads which looks like a glorified toll booth. Ingrid might occasionally be on duty here in the morning on market days possibly, accepting traders/folk into the village (although it's usually quiet):

I have no real problems with where Nibby's homestead is. If I had to quibble, it is stated to be tucked into the trees, so effectively, it would just flip vertically 180-degrees.

However, that's a quibble of less import than my curiosity of what "Ignoble Magic" is.

@vietmyke You and me both mate πŸ˜‚

@Mae I'll add the skills to the character after my flight or so (1:47 AM here and I'm getting ready to leave...). I think a skill that would let Penumbra communicate with monsters would suit them. Seeing that they are a monster, I'd think that some sort of magic telepathic ability would fit. What do you say? Also, is it possible for Penumbra’s hut to be moved somewhat closer to Mary's? Say, middle ground? Like an hour of walking something like that.

@MaeGoh's CS, info about the added skills, and his musings about other characters have been added to the appropriate tab! Let me know if any revisions to format, etc need to be made.

Are the small icons behind his house meant to be his animal snares? Wouldn't those go in the forests?

@Yankee her personality is so adorable. And the egg is really exciting. She probably knows Boro if she likes studying. She definitely needs extra thought to her skills and where she starts at - do you want her to have any active magic at the beginning of the RP?

Thank you! I think she'll be fun to bounce off of others. Yes I agree she'd probably spend a good amount of time in his library, and be more well acquainted to the characters that do their business with the Guild. If anyone reading wants to hash out more in-depth connections, let me know.

As far as magic, I would like her to start with some basic magic but to be honest I didn't have a concrete idea of what kind so I'd be open to suggestions.

And by the way, map looks great! No notes from me.

@Mae adjusted the stats. Goose egg for Charisma and dropped Wisdom down to a one.

What sort of mechanic will the stats play out through?

@Zeroth Hey, Penumbra is not William's experiment. More like, he's the experiment for Penumbra πŸ˜…

Cause Penumbra was given sentience mysteriously but prior to that, they tried to eat William

Wow the map looks amazing! What program/site did you use to make it?

Also, this might have been asked already, but are we going to stick to this OOC tab, or is there a possibility of a discord server for out of character planning and talk?

@Yankee So I've given Jada wind and water, I imagine watching Boro's mage hand like abilities might have inspired some practice with wind. And water I could see her trying her own attempts at the pond, but feel free to swap them if you prefer earth or fire. Here's a first pass on her skills, what sort of hobbies does Jada have?

Liminal Resist I
Bureaucracy
Hospitality
Housekeeping
Research: Magic Study
Sense Needs
Sprint
Jack of Trades, Odd Jobs
Ignoble Magic - Wind, lesser
Ignoble Magic - Water, Lesser
Identify Scroll, Lesser
Inspect Artefact, Lesser
Inspect Rune, Lesser

@Timemaster Moved the hut closer! I think a Sense emotion based telepathy that conveys emotions/vague themes/concepts works. One that requires a peaceful environment to use to start with (can't use it on a wolf charging you, for example)

@Zeroth looks good! Nah, those are NPC huts.

@Wayward excelled, stats look better. What sort of skills would you like / how does he spend his time?

To answer the stats question stats affect success / failure chance for actions in GM Posts, what stats affect is referenced here. Stats and skills are intertwined - you need intelligence to cast ignoble magic and wisdom to cast inert music, for example. A successful action can lead to skill gain / improvement.

Updated the Map!

That works, thank you. Can I ask what "Sense Needs" would entail? I don't want to make any wrong assumptions!
As for hobbies, reading of course. I think fishing would be fun, doubles as time to meditate too. I see her having a love of games, both table games like card or board games and simple sports like kick ball or soccer. Though as the guild grows I think her time will be more taken up by that kind of work.

@Yankee Jada wood be able to interpret what basic needs someone may require, like food, water or rest, and it'd apply to her mysterious egg and creatures as well. Later she may be good at match adventurers to the right quests if she decides to pursue upgrading it. It's possible it could eventually upgrade into things more magical research based e.g sense requirement would allow you to know what reagent or magic you're missing to achieve a certain goal.

Add:
Focus I
Speed Reading
Fishing
Swimming
Observant
Sense Motive, lesser
Gaming: Cards
Gaming: Boardgames

Also given her focus during the RP is magic I'd expect her to be able to develop the basic ones quickly, if you decide to explore that

Quick notes:
Reputation added on the CS tab
NPCs added on CS tab
Skills updated (still missing a couple characters)

Also. @The Irish Tree Welcome to Cornelius! We've got a pretty wild and wonderful mix of characters in this Hamlet now. The wider world is going to be so confused when the trade routes become more active

@Dark Cloud it's alright if it fills a niche the RP is missing, but yeah, phasing out of the interest check search. Hoping to have the first IC post up this week if we get the last few Skill lists done. Waiting to see if raider and meleck still submit a character as they already stated interest early
