OK

Alright! I have the four required to start. I have sent each of you a PM with the rules for character creation and a blank character sheet. Use any of the standard ability generation methods you like. I will approve or disapprove any that I deem out of the ordinary.


If you have questions either post them here if the answer is something that everyone could benefit from or in PM if it is something private or specific to just your character.

Remember it is an Audalis setting so you can choose a homeland from there. I will be posting up some info on the game setting within the week. Hope to have things ironed out and ready to go by next weekend.

Thanks for wishing to play. Hope I dont disappoint!

Sure Bro :)

What kind of character you got in mind?

We have one of each of the basic spoken for already, but could always use another fighter or multi-class.

Yeah... one of them

Just checking the books out again... they were collecting dust.

I was thinking of playing a warrior type or multiclass, probably one of the following:

1) A Khord fighter
2) A Syl or Cidal archer

So yeah... that's as narrow as I am right now.

Optional rules

Hey Aryn,
Just wondering if you use any optional rules for 2nd AD&D? Specifically, I'm wondering about the combat rules from the Fighter's Handbook. (pg 58 - 83)
Thanks!
Ayrn

EDIT: I'm sticking with a fighter, likely the Archer-type.

more answers and questions

Ayrn – Yes, either of those classes/races you mentioned would be fine. I will send you info on the character creation rules I want you to use.

Now which rules in the FHB are you referring to specifically? You specified a large range of pages, and I am looking at the pdf of the book and the page numbers are messed up. Please be specific.

Specfically...

I am wondering about the following rule modifications:

1) Using INT Language bonuses for extra weapon proficiencies.

2) Spending Weap Proficiencies on Ambidexterity.

3) Specialization in Martial Arts / Punching & Wrestling.

4) Fighting Style Specialization.

5) Special manuevers and called shots (i.e. parry, shield-punch, disarm, trip, etc).

Thanks!

some questions for the Dm / group

It would be a great boon to know what our groups home city / state is and perhaps if we as a entity have any noteriety (I figure we're all between level 7-9ish i reckon) If we are a united 'unit' as it were does our happy little troup have a history? or are we sort of individuals united by common goals from time to time for adventures.

I ask because I'm playing with a few concept ideas for my character.

will also be utilizing the Complete thief's handbook if allowed. I'm finding it fascinating how they've broken down the class into a myriad of options and motivations.

Ok Ok

If I brought in a Sylvari Ranger w/ the Acrobet kit would you let me in?? He is already created just needs a few changes.

more answers

Ayrn -

Ok, No to #1. Never liked that one personally, even as a player. Just doesn’t make sense to me.

I will be allowing the others you listed (#2-5) as they all are good.


Kaelyn & Group -

The adventure will start in the Kingdom of Ertain, so if you wish to have homelands there or anywhere in Audalis, that is fine. I picture the party as having been together for awhile, since maybe the beginning of their wandering ways. They are familiar with working together and of each others capabilities, but remember your character sheets are off limits for other characters. If something there you wish others to know you should RP it so it is known to all.

Complete Thief’s Handbook is allowed, if there are optional sections you wish to use let me know and I will give you my call on if they are allowed.



Tann -

Hmmm. Syl Ranger eh? Ok, the group will be traveling so a Ranger would come in handy. You may join!
I sent you a PM with character creation rules, please read them carefully as some things are specific.

Everyone -
PM me your character sheet when done and I will check it over. I will make any changes and ok any magic items/armor/weapons, etc. and get them back to you. I hope to have all the characters done this week and hopefully have a post this weekend to get things started.

In the shadows

A low bow, 'Kyle, Battle Cleric of the Goddess of Rhann'

Kyle moves to a near by table where a pitcher of wine and several goblets sit upon a silver platter. He pours himself one and then drinks away the road dust, 'Thank you, now I may speak more clearly.'

'Looks like I am a bit late. But as time passes and if those who walk this path do not hold true to it please look to me. I am well versed in the gaming system you speak of. I am currently in one other campaign 'Trilogy'. There I am Maggot or Weaver as some call me. If in time I am honored to walk this path with those who hold true to it, I am able to play what ever race or class that is required. Until I receive word I will lurk and look forward some good reading.'

Kyle bows once more, 'Travel well and I look forward to your tomorrow.'

quick question

backstabbing as a 2e thief is it limited only to daggers? or can one backstab with other melee weapons as well. I think I'm correct that one cannot backstab with ranged weapons in 2e but clarity is always good to have.

Backstab

My call on that is backstab has to be done with small blades, Daggers, stilletos, or some similar blade smaller than a shortsword. Ranged weapons are definately out!
