As expected I am still here and interested in checking out the Highlands. Clearly I have some work to do still on Oliander, but hopefully I can get that done within the next week. Thanks for the answers to my questions, I will need to put those into practice.
to see the responses for who is still here and I am convinced that includes Brianna.
We should have an interesting group of characters participating in this adventure.
Looking forward to your Histories.
Just a reminder that on the trip to the roadhouse that Scale Mail Armor is only available [also leathers and hides etc] but no chain mail.
Those of you who qualify for chain mail armor will be able to get outfitted at the roadhouse upon safe delivery of the wagons!
Also any weapon upgrades in addition to your Magic Weapon that is part of your payment upon arrival at the roadhouse!
Remember, you hired on for 100gp and a Magic Weapon, but before you leave the roadhouse you will have more gold in your coffers ... ahhh ... do not want to give away any of the storyline before we begin ... hee hee!

I have sent each of the participants [including ShadowDragon to give him fair warning!] a PM Message to inform you that I will be posting the Opening Scenario before I leave the Philippines on Tuesday!
Although we do not have the deity info available and it may be a couple weeks before I am able to get deity info to everyone, we do have enough info to get started with the adventure!
While I was working on some things this afternoon I decided that we could at least get started with our role play over the next couple weeks and shoot for a full blown start on the 15th of September!
That means posting your histories and some role play to get some valuable Experience Points to add once we arrive safely at the roadhouse!
With a Bard, Fighter, Ranger, Druid and Cleric in possession of the Magic Weapon each has earned as payment from Adaf Adshead we should be able to circumvent any future problems in not having a Wizard and Rogue aboard for the adventure!
I can always introduce an NPC into the storyline if what we are up against needs some more cannon fodder ... errr ... a talented character to get the party past any obstacles that would need outside assistance!
We have at least 3 Elves who by their racial characteristics can discover hidden doors and our Ranger can find a Trap if necessary!
Role play and writing posts is what is mostly necessary at this point and I look forward to getting underway!
I will need to have your Attribute Numbers and your 2 Primes as each player has created a non-human character.
Am still planning to post the Opening Scenario on Tuesday [before I board a plane] to get the stage set, so you need to get your histories written up and posted in the Haunted Highlands thread as soon as possible.
Oliander will follow Hammer's sage advice and go with a dexterity of 17 instead of 16. I think I need to lose a point elsewhere - how about charisma? Dex. will also be his secondary sttribute as a half elf.
He will fight using two swords - a long one in his prime hand (right) and a shortsword in his left. He'll deal with whatever negatives that brings. It makes him a unique half-elf, right?
