Well, can't argue with Eddie - up the irons it is.

Let's see what rolling a character on Christmas gets me....and, hell, that ain't bad at all! Thanks Santa!

I'm fine with the iron price though I would have voted for the gold price. Do we get to buy an army at reduced price you mentioned, as our "household"? Maybe we can each buy a platoon or two as part of the troupe. I was vaguely considering a Venturer, though I'm pretty flexible, and i dun no if that would be good here. Such a character might be a good military leader, though not a great melee fighter. Do other people have ideas?

I have decent STR, INT and CHA.  I was thinking either an Elven Courtier or an Elven Spellsword.  The Courtier would have some overlap with your Venturer.  If you decide to go that route, I'm fine with playing a Spellsword.

The Company household is assumed to be physical assets. However, per “Playing with Advanced Characters” on p. 253 of ACKS that my ACKS Troupe Style Play is based upon:

Advanced characters may also begin play with specialists and mercenaries in his employ. For each specialist or mercenary, the advanced character must spend gp equal to six month’s wages for the hirelings. This represents past costs incurred in having the hireling on retainer.

Troops are generally “rented”, except for slave troops. I’m not sure a one-time discount on either of these will help you long-term away from civilization, but we can see how it plays out. You could be jumping right into needing to keep larger than usual numbers of troops fed, paid, etc.

I’ll allow you to “bank” your household if you want to delay spending it. To improve your keep later, for example (assuming you secure it.)

I am still liking this game, but posting will definitely be light until after the 1st.  But, stats:

edit:  huh​.  Will sleep on it.

Breaking news: I asked and received Alex's permission to set this PbP campaign in the Auran Empire Campaign Setting. Yay! So, you can reference the SSoS Primer and/or other information on this site to think about general character background.

Hopefully, our new PbP forum will be ready before too long. One quick rule to start with: please let me open up new threads for your use (like OOC, Character Sheets, etc.)

Getting closer ...

I'm interested in playing if you still have an open spot.

We have a PbP sub-forum!

Let's reserve this recruitment thread for any remaining role call responses as well as potential new players (until we reach our limit).

If there is still room I am interested. As a warning, I've been away from Acks for a bit and have not done forum based play before. So I might have a learning curve.

Welcome! Yes, I am still accepting players. You will quickly pick-up play-by-post. Creating an advanced character and troupe could be a little daunting, but is also easily done.

After Boomishtendency, we have one opening remaining.

I just noted a late comer to the roll call, and after Boomishtendency our roster is now full!
