Eastern, Central, Mountain, and Pacific time.

If he's looking to play the game at 10 PM - 3 AM GMT, that would be:

5 PM - 10 PM Eastern Standard Time (Toronto, New York)
4 PM - 9 PM Central Time (Winnipeg, Chicago)
3 PM - 8 PM Mountain Standard Time (Calgary, Denver)
and 2 PM - 7 PM Pacific Standard Time (Vancouver, LA)

I'm interested in playing too... definitely on Friday (though I may be a few minutes late) and maybe Saturday (we'll see... have to see what's on the family schedule).

I have a couple ideas, and they are somewhat dependant on a couple of your rulings, oh great DM.

Are you excepting kits?
Can we multi-class (assuming appropiate race and such)?

The characters I'm interested in are:

An elven fighter/mage (bladesinger kit).
A halfling fighter/thief (leaning towards wanderer kit).
Or a (likely) halfling thief.

Do we have a certain amount of money to buy equipment? Can we purchase magical gear? If so, how? ADnD has all their magical items listed by XP value, not GP.

Just curious!

Good questions…

Brianna , I’ll stat your character up this afternoon and send her on to you for approval. One suggestion… a 14 doesn’t actually give any bonuses in 2nd ed. it might be worth raising either your Strength or Constitution to a 15 and dropping the other to 13.

Ayrn , multi-classing is definitely possible. You’d just start as a level 2/2 Fighter/ Thief (or whatever classes you chose) rather than a level 3 single-classed character. I’m willing to allow kits provided that they don’t have any special rules we’re going to need to keep looking up in play and that they aren’t horribly overpowered.

1. I’ve just glanced over some of the books and haven’t been able to find a “Wanderer” kit- do you mean the “Traveller” Fighter/ Thief Kit from the Complete Book of Gnomes and Halflings? If so then take it by all means.

2. The Bladesinger seems a little overpowered. I’ll allow it, but we won’t be using the weapon styles from the Complete Fighters’ Handbook.

Regarding equipment… for the sake of simplicity I’m just using the following rules:

1. Within reason, start play with as many non-magical weapons as you’d like.
2. Take any armour up to chain mail [or elven chain if it fits your character], and a shield if you want one.
3. Take as much standard adventuring equipment as you’d like.
4. We’re not using the rules for encumbrance, unless things get silly. You can’t carry ten long swords around in your backpack, and trying to lug around 20 pounds of gold is bound to slow you down somewhat.
5. Begin play with a small amount of gold (I’ve given the characters I’ve statted 30 gp each).

Magic items:
Characters can begin play with either a healing potion, an antidote to poison or any first level scroll of their choice. So that single-classed mages don’t get bored, I’m willing to let anyone who wants to play one start with a wand of magic missile.

Chances are, you’ll find other magic items in play but I don’t want to get bogged down in working out xp/ gp costs before the game even gets started.

Anyhow, it’s great to see so much interest already. If anyone else would like to play then we’ve still got room for a few more.

I’ve added it to your sheet.

Let’s just say that I’m glad there’s going to be at least one in the party’s inventory.

Okay, then.

  • Admiral [Race/ Class]
  • Ayrn [Elven Bladesinger/ Halfling Fighter/Thief/ Halfling Thief]
  • Brianna [Elven Fighter]
  • Drakar [Race/ Class]
  • Kaelyn [Human Cleric]
  • Silent One [Elven Ranger]

If you’d like to play and need me to stat up a character for you then it would be really helpful if you could let me know in the next hour or so.

If you’re statting your own character up then I’m not going to need anything in until about an hour before the game starts (i.e. about five hours from now).

I’m really looking forward to running this one.

I think you misunderstood - I'm going to be at a fantasy convention this weekend. I meant I'm sure there will be memorial services there.

Good luck with the game though, I'll read through it when I get back.

Ah, fair enough.

Hope you enjoy wherever you do end up playing then.

In other news Garycon's already made the news in a small way, and there should hopefully be a few more reports as the night goes on:

The gaming community continues to reflect upon the life and achievements of recently departed Dungeons & Dragons creator Gary Gygax, and there are a few weekend activities planned to remember him.

The first idea is one shared by gamers around the globe, all of whom had a similar impulse, and which has blossomed into something called "Gary Con." The idea is to blow the dust off those old source books, find your bag of dice, and invite over a couple of friends. Play some classic D&D, or some other game with a classic D&D-style dungeon crawl, and remember Gary while you have some fun. More details on the Gary Con Facebook page.

Gary's funeral is also this weekend, and is open to the public. Visitation and service on Saturday, March 8, begininng at 11 AM at Haase Derrick Lockwood Funeral Home in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. There will also be an informal gathering in the evening. More details here.

Eleven fighter-Isilifeline

Can I have the archer's kit? I think I remember something about that but if there is not enough time no problem. I too desire an antidote for poison and a few long stick/coblin spear, cut branches about 2-5 feet long. 3-4 of them

Me and mine

K... so really want to play... but may be a bit late. Maybe I'll let you create the character and I'll just show up and play.

I'm going to go with the thief character. If you're going to create it for me, then halfling thief. Stats would be:

Str: 9
Dex: 19
Con: 16
Int: 12
Wis: 5
Cha: 9

If I'm creating him... I hope to be up and running by 5:30 EST. See you then!

Sorry to ask this, but are you posting as yourself or Brianna?

I should be able to gen you a character before the game starts, no problem. Any idea where I’m going to find the rules for an “Archer” kit? I’m guessing either the book for Elves or the Fighter’s Handbook?

Do you just mean cut tree branches? If so, then no problem. If it’s some sort of special weapon then it could be helpful to know the rules for it first.

Sure, I’ll stat a character up for you and then PM it on to you for any changes you might want to make.

It’s probably not going to be much of a problem if you’re half and hour or so late. Should we assume that your character had been there all along or do you want to join up with the group en route?

Oh, and everyone. I'd like to start in the next half hour (10 pm GMT), okay?
