Character Roster/Instructions

From VIP Gaming Community Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Characters are listed in the roster giving everyone an idea of who a character is, what there class and level are, and if they are available for an adventure.

Columns

While most of the columns are fairly self-explanatory,the status column has special meaning:

Ready
The character is in The Sword & Board Inn and is ready to participate in a new adventure. All characters in a party must be Ready before an adventure with them can start.
Adventuring
The character is on an adventure and is not available to currently participate in any new adventures. Characters become this status when leaving The Sword & Board Inn to go on an adventure, and they return to the Ready status upon their return.
Dead
The character is dead. Resurrection is a possibility, if someone can cast the spell or pay someone to do it for them. If the character's player has no intention of raising the character, move the roster entry for this character to the graveyard.
