Skotos Forums Closing: September 30

The Skotos Forums are officially closing on September 30, 2020. They will go read-only on that date, and will be removed entirely sometime afterward.

We encourage the games that spun off of Skotos to create new discussion mediums of their own, and some have already done so. But the centralized discussions for Skotos will soon be a thing of the past (just as the centralized Skotos site is).

We've also posted a goodbye message to the community on our main page, which you can find here:

  • VC Package

    Just to make sure, does the character have to be a year old to receive the first vet char package? I remember seeing a chart about older characters getting better packages, but since there's a new update I was hoping you can provide a new chart.

      It's also based on your total ranks although I'm not sure you could get enough within 6 months time.

        Ranks have nothing to do with it.

        Jkidd was correct, and I've put the only missing detail in bold below:

        *The package offered will be based off character age. (from the time of creation until the time of death).
        *One month will be added to this age for every 250 Role Points spent on the character. (RPs counted are those directly spent on the character itself [description changes, stat increases, etc], not any spent on items, events or other.)
        *The total number of months credited will be rounded to the nearest year.

        Less than 6 months..... None
        6mo - 1yr..... Level 1
        1yr - 2yr..... Level 2
        2yr - 3yr..... Level 3
        3yr – 4yr….. Level 4
        4yr – 5yr….. Level 5
        5yr and over….. Level 6

        To remind everyone what each level includes:
        Code:
        *Package(Cost)*	|*GSPs*	|*Credits*	|*Wealth*	|*Stats* |*Extras*|

          May be a dumb question but does the one month per 250rp's thing include veteran character package purchase price? I.E. if I bought a 1000rp vet char would I then have 4 months of bonus time?

              Yes.

              The only time this will not be part of the equation is if it is a VC that was awarded due to a Justice PK that winds up getting Justice PK'd again.

                Just to be SUPER CLEAR:

                If you add a character to @chopping-block, and he/she is killed by a GM as a result of adding him/her to @chopping-block, ARE YOU ELIGIBLE for a Vetchar Package?

                      Yes if the death is a result of being on the Chopping Block list, and not a result of asking to be killed by a GM, you would get the appropriate VCP.

                      Nothing prevents freebie accounts from receiving the appropriate VCP after an acceptable character death. You just wouldn't get the automated message asking if you'd like to spend rps to upgrade the package when you go to use it, because freebies can't make rps purchases.

                        I was just confused because in my weird twisted mind; adding a character to the "chopping block" is in a way, ASKING to be killed by a GM.

                        It then goes on to say that ASKING to be killed by a GM will NOT result in a Vetchar Package.

                        When it comes to the death of characters, it's always best to be super clear.

                          Is there anything above a level 6? As in, can someone add RPS to a level 6 and get more? I'm just curious because there are some characters that are more than 6 years old and have 10k+ RPS into them and so the extra month per 250rps doesn't really help there.

                            No. VCs are supposed to soften the blow of starting a new character - whether PK'd or otherwise. Edit: There are extreme circumstances when a person has received more than what the 10k offers, but...

                            Also, I had the same slight confusion as Sentael, but Archmagi should be warned about his grumpiness.

                              don't take it personally, you can't post a three character post. so I had to add something more than yes.
