Jesus is right handed
Let's make Juan right-handed.@Shemek hiTankolel
Before I forget, I need all of you to tell me which hand is dominant for your PC. You can just go with whichever hand you use in real life, choose left or right, or roll randomly. I just want to make sure we have it on the record before any combat happens as wound locations matter in Boot Hill and getting wounded in your dominant hand/arm and/or shooting/throwing with the other will affect your accuracy.
The approximate route of the wandering cowpokes before they doubled back onto the trail:hmm just noticed the new map. when we had the bandit detour, did we swing out near Rio Santa Cruz (or at least one of the dry river beds that feed into Rio Santa Cruz) ?
If anything is unclear, just ask. I'll also update the sheets I have for each PC to keep them current.If you are done shooting, we'll also apply Survival Modification as per the rules on page 5.
Eugene's light wound means -3 to his Strength score and -5 to his Hit Determination % until it has healed. With proper medical treatment, Eugene will heal 1 point per week.
Juan de la Oyo
Sorry....much more prosaically, I intended to hint that he's of the kind that if that was a game set 50 to 80 years later, would make him a private eye. Hence, Oyo, and "de la" is because I thought he should be from a family that had high standing until the frontier moved over them and made them surprised US citizens!Oh cool! Is this an obscure reference (the best kind of reference) to the late 90's western ccg "Doomtown" ? The Lawdog faction had one guy with a similar last name. If I remember correctly the character was a blind Mexican farmer that had been divinely blessed with the ability to see through tattoos on his hands, he uses this power to fight evil. I am now shocked that I still remember that bit of lore.
EDITED to remove the OOC and the Italics

No, I also decided to exchange one letter to denote pretences of nobility, and de la Oyo was the best-sounding possibility, IMO.Juan del Ojo?
Your numbers are right. You have the "misfortune" of having started with the maximum bonus from Experience, but your Speed and Bravery scores still have room for improvement. The higher a score starts, the more it takes to improve its bonus.I think I've got how the experience works. My Experience Score doesn't change, but my Speed (currently 85) will gain 1 which will give me an 86, and my Bravery (Currently 52) will gain 2 which will give me 54. Both abilities increase, but no chages in modifiers result. Does this sound right, or have I missed something?
Thank you for the kind words!Didn't want to break character in the game thread so I'll just say it here.
Wow, I just wanted to call out @Shemek hiTankolel for that really great rp decision yeterday. He took a routine dialogue and really made it into a powerful scene between two characters, giving both their actions more depth. This is doubly impressive because it was about conflicting character motives and the scene didn't degenerate into violence. In all my years of being a storytelling chronicles I've seldom seen such a quality impromptu quality performance. Kudos, @Shemek hiTankolel my hats off to you as a gamer.
We're just glad you visit 1870s Terra once in a while to participate.Thank you for the kind words!
It sometimes seems like MacRegan has a life of his own. The words often just write themselves. Maybe all those years gaming on Tekumel has tainted my perspective as a player.
No need; we're all well paid to be here, right?I'd like to give a shout out to you, the other players, and Dumarest for creating an excellent campaign environment.
