Friendly Reminder on Experience Points

Just a Friendly Reminder that both your Character History as it blends in with the starting scenario and your Role Play before this first battle gets underway will have an impact upon your Experience Points!

When you get settled into the roadhouse after this first battle encounter, each PC Character will have attained Level 4.

How close to attaining Level 5 will depend upon your quality of Role Play posted before the outcome of your upcoming battle with the Orcs!

In fact, your Role Play throughout the course of this adventure will provide Experience Points to help your PC Character to Level Up in addition to finding Treasure etc!

Oliander builds experience . . .

Ok, two posts are up.

You asked for the character post - I assume it was to have it in the game thread and not just here. It is primarily just a copy of what had already been posted on this thread, so don't bother rereading if you already read the history, nothing changed in that part.

I also added a post about the trip to Dirty's. Oliander had been feeling like a pretty plain character, but the more I write the more he seems to have a little flair and interest. I'm looking forward to getting things underway.

Oliander

Enjoyed your post Nomad.

Sounds like you are developing an interesting character!

You have gained some Experience Points for your entries!

Remember that Strength is a Prime for Rangers in C&C.

Half-elves with a human lineage possess these abilities:

ATTRIBUTE CHECK MODIFICATION: The human lineage is reflected in a greater versatility than their elven kin, but not quite as their human relatives.

Half-elven characters are allowed to choose one secondary attribute for which they gain a +2 bonus to all attribute checks.

Probably would be wise to make this +2 bonus an addition to your Dexterity Secondary Prime to help with your 2-handed sword fighting.

Half Elves only get to choose 1 other Secondary Prime.

Humans are the only character races to have 2 Secondary Primes in addition to their Class Prime.

Brianna

You need to write a post prior to the Orc attack to garner some Experience Points and to help get the stage set for the opening encounter!

Just check out Nordrog the Gnome and Oliander posts to get some ideas!

Dragon Mistress

Hope your computer cooperates so you can get your character info and history posted.

Your Bard especially needs to have some depth with both the history and the role play post, because the Bard Class hits Level 5 sooner than the other classes in the game!

The substance of your role play coupled with what you will gain in Experience Points after the first encounter with the orcs and return to the roadhouse will bring you pretty close to Level 5 before leaving the roadhouse later.

Nimu

Do not forget to post a role play in addition to what you have already posted.

Additional Experience Points will be included for the quick development of your character!

As it does for all characters!

Generosity for Experience Points

Okay Gang

A generous portion of Experience Points are being distributed to each PC Character for the following:

Each of you is getting a pre-determined amount of Experience Points for the 12-week journey.

The Experience Point value of each of the Magic Weapons that the PC Characters receive when they get settled in the roadhouse will be added together and then divided equally amongst the adventurers!

Although a Magic Weapon given to a certain character may have 2 or nearly 3 times the Experience Point values for the weapon as compared to a weapon given to another character, the Experience Points value for each weapon will be added together and divided among the group equally.

My thinking being that an individual weapon is not only for the enhancement of a specific character, but for the enhancement of the collective adventure party as a whole.

Therefore the points are being divided equally among the group of adventurers. They all earned it by working together, so they get to share the combined Experience Points equally for the benefit of the group!

Thirdly, a total of 1000 Experience Points is being awarded to each PC Character as a generous bonus to bring them closer to Level 5 before we get too far into the adventure!

But to get that extra 1000 Experience Points you must post the Character History and put some good substance into your role play post also.

Nordrog and Oliander have qualified [as I plan to write up a second part to the Reflections of Nordrog the Gnome!]

Future Role Play Experience Points will be determined as the adventure progresses.
The Experience Points awarded for the 12-week journey + the Magic Weapons Experience Points divided among the group will cause each PC Character to exceed the points needed for Level 4 when they get settled at the roadhouse!

Oliander and Primes

Ok, I had Dexterity already identifed as his secondary attribute in the most recent post. So all I did was relabel strength to name it his prime attribute.

Is that all you wanted identified?

He gets 1 prime. 1 secondary. And that is it.

The Open Gate

For your information the Open Gate is 30 feet wide.

The Party of Adventurers is standing 10 feet outside the gate with their backs to the Orcs as they gaze upon the fresh heads perched on the pikes of the palisades.

Facing the Gate the following PC Characters are from right to Left:

The Fighter, The Ranger, The Cleric, The Druid and The Bard.

When they whirl around to face their attackers they will be standing from Left to Right.

There is one open space remaining in front of the gate, but that will be filled by an NPC [probably Adaf Adshead] when T-2 of R-1 [Turn 2 of Round 1] begins.

Each occupied space is 5 feet square.

For your information the 2 Sentries are so seasoned that even though the Orcs have been hidden by an Invisible Sphere spell and are rushing forward with a surprise attack, their seasoned training will allow them to fire 2 Arrows each before the Orcs reach the Adventurers!

That is why they are Sentries!

They have Keen Eyes and Keener Reflexes!

I have already made the Initiative Roll for T-2 and the Sentries, Adaf Adshead and his 5 Fighters plus the 5 PC Characters will get to attack the Orcs again after the initial surprise attack has been resolved.

Udru Ironhammer and any other NPCs inside Dirty's Roadhouse are stationing themselves strategically to defend the Roadhouse in case any Orcs break through the defense of the 5 PC Characters and Adaf Adshead and his 5 Fighters who will be firing 1 Arrow each at the Orcs.

So post your reactions here and for the sake of simplicity, just mention that your character attacks the nearest Orc within reach of your Blades!

Remember to sever their heads after they have been killed so you can collect the fresh head bounty!

The NPCs are merely your backup!

The 5 Adventurers will split the Coin for Fresh Orc Heads as well as the Treasure they carry and the Experience Points from this encounter.

NPCs are merely backing up the PC Characters!

They will not share in any Reward or Treasure or any Experience Points accrued from this encounter.

Only the 5 Adventurers receive the spoils!

Oliander

Oliander draws his two blades, positions himself as indicated with his back to the gate and "attacks the orc closest to him."

Good Call

I have it noted and as soon as Brianna, Nimu and Dragon Mistress can get their Role Play posted then I will proceed with the opening attack by the Orcs and the results of the counter attack by our party!

Bought Some New Dice Yesterday ...

..... so I am already making plans to carry a spare set of dice with my laptop and flashdrive to get this adventure well underway!

Also ordered the paperback version of "Of Gods and Monsters" that should be arriving in a few days, although I am out of town presently!

We will add the deity info as we go in the next few weeks!
