  1. Welcome to Driftwood A Brief History The Civil War effected the nation through out its reaches. From the war itself, and the way it severed ties with families, or to its effect on the economy, the United States would not be the same. Among those forever changed, was retired Union Colonel Joseph Young. To aid in his recovery, and to seek peace from the atrocities of the war, he drifted west to the Arizona Territory, where upon a winding river he built a cabin and began to rebuild his life. Soon after he was joined by the Sergeant Major of the 1st Mass. Volunteer Cavalry that Joseph had commanded. His long friend Malakai Finnegan built a ranch of his own not far from Young's cabin, along the river that would later be known as the Rio Rojo "Red River". Over the next 5 years, more ex-soldiers, farmers, settlers gathered in the Rio Rojo Valley along the river as they too were escaping from the harsh outcome of th war to try and better their lives. In 1870, after Joseph and Malachi first settled the area, the town of Driftwood was founded. A home to those set a drift during a turbulent period of war. Over the next 7 years, Driftwood would undergo a period of growth, tragedy and change. Joseph Young @Joseph Young having been the Chief US Marshal would eventually retire, becoming the AZ Territory Circuit Judge. His first action was to hang Emma "Emerald" Collins in the streets of Driftwood. Malakai Finnegan @Malakai semi-retired as Deputy US Marshal and becomes the town Sheriff, assisting Marshals and Rangers on an as needed basis. Logan Sackett @HondoSacketthas continued as the Chief AZ Territory Ranger Niamh Whelan @Niamh Whelan still owns and runs the hotel. It was renamed from the "Sourel" to "Sackett's Rest" Hotel in honor of Driftwood's first Sheriff and Mayor William Sackett, who was fatally wounded by the villainous Emma "Emerald" Collin. Niamh became acting Mayor until a newly elected replacement has been appointed. Tobias Johnson @Tobias Johanson is still kicking around on his Ranch outside of town, as well as running the General Store. Jake Foster @FosterCo-Owner of the town Sign Shop has been missing for the last 7 years OOC Introduction Driftwood itself began as an RP Forum Environment whee players awaiting the development of "another game", would interact in a full interactive environment using the forums. Everyone helped select the names of the town, the river, and future expansions into other states. The forum was set up so everyone joining the RP would have their own character which was set in a list, people could own houses and business in the town "see the attached images", and would subsequently run and RP their life on the forums. We would like to do something similar here. The central point of interest of this initial RP environment would be the town of Driftwood. The businesses and houses owned by past returning RP community members have claimed those buildings again with their back stories and history of interactions in the town intact. There will be buildings currently empty, jobs currently available, and other empty plots available for people to acquire. At which time our genius of a Graphic Artist Jake @Foster would add your house/business to the overhead land map. All purchases and transactions and possessions would all be purely RP. But later change to this, acquiring of funds etc may become possible depending on activity. RP Game Staff @Joseph Young, Lead Game Master @Malakai, Game Master and Lead RP Master @Logan Sackett, RP Master @Niamh Whelan, RPMaster Current Story Archs "Death and Vengeance in Driftwood", run by @Niamh Whelan "The unseen warriors power",run by @Logan Sackett All questions and inquires for a storyline should be directed to the respective RP master that is running it. Joining the RP There are a number of steps we ask all new participants to do when joining. 1. Read the last 2 pages so you get a gist of the state of the town and what is going on. 2. Read the Buying Land and Building Structures rules to get an idea of how to get your own house or business or even ranch/farm going. Read info at: 3. Check out the Maps at the bottom of this thread to get an idea of how the town and surrounding area looks. 4. It is best not to assume a profession or job until you know what is available in our RP world. Best thing to do is contact @Joseph Young or @Malakai to help figure out where you can fit into the world based on your desires for a story. 5. Join us on Discord for live conversations about the RP at 6. Finally, you may now go ahead and post your first post by Creating and Introducing your Character. Creating and Introducing your Character When first joining the RP, your first post should be something of the sort like "Character Name" arrives at the Train Station/on a Stage Coach or some such way as having arrived and give a little background as to who you are, your kind of education, business, etc, then you are welcome to start RPing. Your Character name will then be added to our list, updated when you take on a profession in town, adding your address of your house and/or business etc. All New Participants arrive at the town with $500 Rules and Important Tables Buying Land and Building Structures Read info: Basic Success vs Failure Check for key RP Interactions Whether it be an attempt at a knife stab or gun shot or picking a cell lock thses two formulas will be used. Change in the number may be adjusted by RP Mods at any time due to difficulty. So how does this work? Person 1 fires at Person 2. Both roll d100. Depending on how close each number is to each other will determine success vs failure. Anyone can call for a success vs failure check at anytime for interactions. Combat To Hit Roll - 1d100 1-30 roll difference = miss 31-90 roll difference = non-fatal hit 91-100 roll difference = fatal hit. d6 rounds for a doctor to show up or for ppl to say farewells ect. IF Dr arrives wounded and Dr roll 1d100 Surviving a Fatal Wound Roll 1d100 - Gumption adds a bonus to the roll equal to its stat. IE, a 16 rolled, the defender has Gumption of 5, makes the roll -5 making it 11, which would be enough to save their life. 1-15 roll difference = Saves their life. 1d6 for rounds of recovery before walking again. 16-99 roll difference = PERMA DEATH of character after the remaining d6 rounds. 100 = Insta Death Cover of Defender - a minus to the To Hit roll based on the % of cover someone has. 100% gives -75 to roll 75% gives -50 to roll 50% gives -25 to roll 25% gives -5 to roll Skill Bonus of Attacker - a plus to the To Hit roll based on the skill rank of a respective weapon. For Non Combat 1-30 Roll Difference = Succes 31-90 Roll Difference = Fail, anyone can try again 91-100 Roll Difference = Critical Fail and no one can try again ie broke the lock Adjustment to ranges under discretion of RP Moderators.
