Orion Group take 2 Recruitment

Okay, I have decided, mostly out of boredom, to try my gestalt game again. I will be accepting character sheets but the players in my original game will have spaces reserved for them if they wish to play again. The basic rules will still apply with a few exceptions, so for starters here are all the links pertaining to my first game.
Recruitment Q/A Game SRD
Starting level will be third with standard funds for that level with some exceptions I will explain later. Oh and I'm gonna take a page from Steel's book of DMing and go with an 80 pt buy for stats. Any race with an ECL no higher than 2 is available as well as most classes, I just ask that we have no extraplanars this time around. I don't do Psionics, Paladins, or Samurais, and I would really like if your class combination was explained in your background. I don't just want, "I'm a wiz/sor just so I can cast twice the spells!! lulz!"

For nonstandard races with Level Adjustments, like the Tiefling or Aasimar for example, you'll only have 2 levels in your chosen classes, basically your level progression being like so; Tiefling lvl 1, Rog/Wrlk lvl 2, Rog/Wrlk 3. This takes care of the level adjustment in my mind while still keeping you at 3 HD like the rest of the group. Make sure you are willing to play your classes to the end, because I will expect no changing of classes except with Prestige Classes, and those will be approved and ruled on in a case by case basis.

As for The Orion Group itself, the guild is going to be much less secretive and mystic this time around, being just a standard mercenary guild in a large city. That is not to say that rumors still do not spread about the guild and the jobs they take though.

I'll join but.....

I don't know what Gestalt is or means. I'd love to join but so long as I don't know about the campaign I can't join. Plus there needs to be a spot open.

Thanks for the link, I'll check it out.

Question

Can I use my character that I originally made for your game?

Sure

I don't see why not, so long as she is level 3, you may need to change some stats too, since I think the stats I had originally provided are under 80 points.

Wow....

I have no idea if I'm doing this right at all. Here's my character. Tell me if I did it right and if not I don't think I'll be able to play.

Name: Lassven
Gender: Male
Allignment: Chaotic Neutral
Classes: Ranger/Rogue
Race: Half-Elf

Experience: 3000

Ability Scores:
Str.17
Con.14
Dex.18
Wis.17
Int.17
Cha.12

Hitpoints: 16

Fort Save: +5
Ref Save: +8
Will Save: +4

Base Attack Bonus: +3

Attack Options: (not sure what this is)

AC:13 Flat Footed: 10 Touch: (not sure)

Racial Abilities: Sleep spell Immunity, Low-Light Vision

Have I done it right so far? This Gestalt stuff is so confusing.

Gestalt! Woot!

I'm in if you'll have me. I might need to do some revising, but basically I'd like to play the same character as before. Hopefully less stand-offish this time around.

yea

Like I said, I kept spaces reserved for the original players, just make whatever changes you need to and get back to me. Bri and Deuce just PM me new character sheets once you make the changes you need to make.

And just so everyone is aware, I'm skipping the initiation tests this time around, you'll already be established members of the Group, rookies, but members just the same. And since it has come up, you may purchase Magic Items with your funds at this time, but nothing costing over 2500g.

I also have a couple rule tweaks planned, but I'm going to keep those confidential for now, give you something to wonder about.

Thanks

Thanks for the chance Shield Wolf but I'm still new to this so I'll stick with simpler stuff for now. Thanks anyways.

So gang...

I have a question for you all, should I make a fresh Q/A thread since this is a new game, or shall we just use the old Q/A thread?

Decisions, decisions

Honestly I don't think it matters. Though if we use the old one I would suggest you making a post with bold letters saying "New Game Starts Here." or something like that so it's eassier for those of us new to the game to keep things straight.

Fair enough

I could do that, I'll just have to think it over of course.

For everyone's viewing pleasure I have begun compiling important guild members all of your characters would know from your time as members. These brief paragraphs can be found in the Characters thread if you are curious.

open

Still waiting to hear from Brianna and Deuce, but even still I have 1-2 slots open for anyone else interested. I'm more than willing to help with character creation if you need the help. I'd even go so far as to do most of the mechanics based creation so long as you take care of the "fluff" like Background, personality, etc.

...

If you use the same threads as the old game, definitely put in a big old bold notice about the end of one narrative and the beginning of the next to separate it from the current story - Easy; less work

If you use the same threads as the old game, definitely put in a post making the previous content a dream or vision or nightmare or... etc, to separate it from the current story.
- Hard; more work



I'm still reeling in shock over the point buy amount. Did you really mean 80?

Really?




That's awesome!

He means

80 total ability score points, 1 for 1. Not the every ability score starts at 10 and go from there (with different buy values depending on ability score value).

Before racial modifiers, your ability scores should total 80.
