Default Re: [OOC] Kept 4 Dead

I am contemplating taking some kind of eye for detail advantage that speaks "cinematic jeweler ability useful in the zombie apocalypse."

I could take acute vision of course... Or the observation skill... But both of these feel more like they belong with a jewel thief or detective...

Search sounds a little closer in that it suggests a careful deliberate plenty-of-time examination eyeing of surroundings.

Scrounging too sounds like a good possibility..

Serendipity "0% aspected" to "stuff my jeweler eye 'discovers'" seems an interesting possibility if the GM is feeling it, and if we figure out what a game session means in a pbp game!!

What do all y'all think?

Amount per hour translates to amount per day game time and amount per session to amount per week game time according to R.A.W. though I might say more like once every so many posts per PbP.

Thinking of backing out of this...not a lot of time on my hands now a days. which kills me because Zombies games are my all time favorite. How often are you expecting to post?

Atleast once or twice per week. It will depend on my workload IRL.

If you do end up backing out, no worries. My wife is a fanatic, so it likely won't be our last Z game!

Please elaborate on the concept; I am not sure that I know what you are trying to achieve.

Basically I wanted a cinematic jeweler's eye advantage useful in the z game. Serendipity is probably the best idea.. When he gets a stroke of luck just phrase it as, "he notices with his jeweler's eye that [ lucky happenstance ].

Ok I think I can handle that rate of posting. I was going to play a jock but decided on a either small town sheriff (yeah I know not very original) or a biker....leaning towards a biker.

For you I think a small town sheriff is original. :p I'm just surprised I didn't remember Trent's name off the bat.
