Re: Trek BBS RPG: 01 - Rules and Character Posting

I have to be honest - I'm not mathematically minded, at all. I enjoy creating a story, not worrying about adding and subtracting modifiers, so how much of that would I need to be aware of?

You'll only add two numbers at a time mostly. The GM will state wether you'll add dice each time you need to. The highest dice pool you can have is 20 (6 in both the skill and attribute, +3 for a willpower, +3 for specialties, and +2 in bonuses) but that's rare.

Looks interesting; however, too complicated for the level of interaction. (IMHO)

I think this idea would work using real-time interaction. Role-playing by forum or e-mail wouldn't support this level of detail.

Hope this helps.

^Not for multiple GMs (I wouldn't mind another GM to play a character of my own from time to time too). I pictured generic day to day conversational role-playing during exploration with the occasional (GM initiated) alien encounters, anomalies, nebulae, ect.

They are several online die rolling/email to GM systems that would work with this kind of gaming.

System's a little bit more elaborate than I'd usually look at using for PBP, but I could be interested. Any idea what crew roles you'd be recruiting for?

^Modified from an earlier post, I'd want a Doctor, a Security Officer, and an Engineer or Science Officer to get things started. After that, anyone is free to join (So long as a character is posted first). I would like an all around skilled Commander but I could command as a GM Captain.

Hm, I could take a whack at a Science Officer. I'll keep watching and see if you have any other takers.

Re: Trek BBS RPG: 01 - Rules and Character Posting

It's slow moving, I assume due to the lack of RPG'ers on the Trekbbs. Between two threads, I have two interested, a possible second GM, and two first-timers who I think will join after the game is started. I will post a character sheet (an Engineer) if other GMs join.

^Nevermind, I'll post the first character sheet.


An human engineer good at tweeking engines, upgrading systems, and repairing a damaged computer (software and hardware).

It would have made more sense writing my specialties under Additional Information but eh, first game.
