Hey Nick I forgot to mention it to you on Saturday but my work just posted a job opening with some of the job requirements being 5+ years or customer service and an associates degree in a business related field.
It doesn't say how much it pays but the other job posting is a clerk and it starts at $18.76 so I'm sure it's quite a bit more than that.

  Back Up Investigators
Posted by: ronin - 11-09-2017, 12:17 AM - Forum: Gaming Discussions - Replies (1)

I would like everyone to come up with a couple of back up investigators, at least one for now. I don't believe there will be an issue anytime soon, but I could see some instances in the future where there might be. Death is certainly a possibility but it's the degrading of sanity I'm more concerned about. I can see a situation where an investigator (or two!) might need time to recuperate while the rest of the group needs to keep moving. It has happened already with the Doc, though you might have been able to avoid it if you really wanted. In the future you might not have the option, this is when I'd like everyone to have the choice of using a back up investigator.

We'll need to have a reason for them to become involved, similar to what we've seen with the Doc and Devin. It would work best if the back ups know another investigator, it could be yours or someone else in the group if that makes more sense. For instance, Angel's back up could be the professor she has talked about, makes sense for him to know Evelyn. Mike's back up could be his uncle, or if he wanted to play the bootlegger he talked about it might make more sense for him to know Zebediah instead. If you have a concept where the back up doesn't know anyone we can make it work. The idea is to have these investigators ready to be worked in as they are needed. Once they are introduced for the first time it'll be handled within the campaign from that point. 

These additional investigators can be just about any occupation you'd like to play. Create them the same way you created the first investigators, we can adjust them if needed before they are introduced. I'd encourage everyone to try some different concepts, maybe you'll find you like something you never thought you would. Eventually the campaign will head across the Atlantic, feel free to have investigators be from Europe. You could be a friend of Evelyn or perhaps your PC has been to the area before, either way works.

It's possible you never use your back up, but it is highly unlikely that everyone will get through the campaign without needing a back up. I would like to prepare beforehand so if we need one we're ready to go. I just wanted to get the concept out there so everyone could start thinking about it. If you have any questions either post them here or we can talk about it on Saturday. I'll see everyone in a few days!

  Insanity Clarification
Posted by: ronin - 10-24-2017, 12:14 PM - Forum: Gaming Discussions - No Replies

I missed a couple of things during the last session, I wanted to make everyone aware of how things should have been handled. If you take 5 points of sanity damage in a single check you have a chance to go temporarily insane. Before this happens however the investigator must make an intelligence check. If this check is passed, you realize the implications of what you've witnessed and go temporarily insane. If this check is failed, your mind has repressed this occurrence so the investigator will continue on as normal. If you take sanity damage equal to 20% of your current sanity in one day you will become indefinitely insane. There is no check for this, the human mind simply cannot ignore this amount of trauma in such a short period of time.

What this means is both Evelyn and Sebastian should have made an intelligence check before going temporarily insane. Since they didn't acquire a phobia or mania the effect of not making the check wasn't significant at all. If they would have come up with a phobia or mania I would have removed this if they would have failed the check.

The other part I missed was also fairly minor. Whenever an investigator fails a sanity check they will lose self control for a moment, meaning they will do something involuntarily to be chosen by the Keeper. Some examples would be-

  • jumping in fright causing you to drop something
  • crying out in terror
  • involuntary movement- jerking a steering wheel while driving for example
  • staring disbelievingly for a moment
  • involuntary combat action- the Keeper may dictate some of all of your action during a combat round
Those are the two things I missed from last week. I'm still trying to get all the rules down, if I get something incorrect I'll make sure to go over it so everyone will know how it works the next time it happens in the game. If anyone has any questions feel free to post them here and I'll try to answer them before the next session. I hope everyone is enjoying the game so far. It's certainly different than what we are used to so I'm interested to see how we like it.
