Lets try to liven things up a little in this area, shall we? Razz

I'm going to be DM'ing a published adventure for you guys. Because you're all so special and because I need something to keep myself occupied during the three weeks I have of term break.
For those of you keeping with the more recent supplement books that Wizards of the Coast are churning out like corks from a cork factory, this one's called Barrow of the Forgotten King. It's part of a three-part series, except that I don't have the other two parts yet and I don't really want to bother myself with a campaign longer than just 64-odd pages. But if the players are enthusiastic enough about continuing...

Oh, yes. Rules, rules...

-These lovely forums shall serve well as our gaming medium.
-We'll be using the system this adventure was made for - D&D 3.5. I hope we're all familiar with that system (though I have DM'ed for newbies before and wouldn't mind teaching other new players).
-Looking for 4 to 5 players. I'll be taking them in on a first-come-first-served basis, so hurry up!
-Start at Second (2nd) level. Is what the book says!
-I'll be nice and give you a little bit more than standard DMG wealth for your level, because I think this adventure is a bit under-treasured during the first section especially. You get 2500gp to spend during character creation.
-Any WotC-published D&D 3.5 source is allowed for making your characters, including material from Forgotten Realms and Eberron. However! Unearthed Arcana and all house rules, mechanics, etc, contained within are out-of-bounds. I hate Unearthed Arcana, see.
-Try for a 32-point buy along with using average hit points per hit dice (Edit: Except for first level, you still get max hitpoints for your hit dice for first level).
-Due to the regrettable lack of a forum dice-roller, dice rolls can either be made on any reliable dice-rolling website (such as Invisible Castle), or you can just let me do the rolling. Either way. Don't worry, I'll be fair. Very Happy
-You can send me character sheets any which way you like. On some sort of characer-profiling website or stamping stats onto your message; by PM or by posting here.
-A little note: I'm a chronic rules lawyer. I do not hesitate to point out everything that I see incorrect with the character sheet and that's including how much gold you say you have spent (you have no idea how many PC's I see that lack balancing money-figures). Do not take it personally.
-This adventure aims for a little more hack'n'slash than roleplaying or puzzle-solving, though there are portions of all three elements allocated.

Okay, is that everything? Right! I hope to see some interested peoples for this. Wink

Hmm... sounds like fun. I'm in.

I'll be playing a snow elven (Frostburn book) soulknife, I think, if there's no objections to that Smile

*Wanders off to make stats and background for new character*

In.

Now to think up of a character idea...*Goes to find rule books*

Oh, and just to say that while I've played(and am playing) D&D 3.0 games, I haven't looked into 3.5.

So not a complete newbie. Razz

I'd like to join. I'm pretty new to the game, but I think I have a fair understanding of the rules. I'll be working with the 3 core books, they're all I have.

1 Elven rogue coming up.

I'll be glad to give this a whirl - set me up a stat array, would you?

Ok, here's the first draft of my character sheet: Eladan

If there's any specific details or something you want on it, just let me know. I plan to go through it once more, when I'm less tired, and add/fix the rest.

I've never actually played by the rules, I've only been building characters. So I do know the basics, but I'm sure there are a ton of rules I'm not familiar with.

Oh, and I didn't draw that nice picture. I don't remember where I found it, but credit naturally goes to the artist.

Ah, right. Don't have DMG, helgraf?

Have: 18, 15, 12, 10, 10, 8
Or: 16, 14, 14, 12, 10, 10
Or: 14, 14, 13, 13, 13, 13

That should be enough choice.

In other news: Yay, interest!

Well, I do have a DMG, but I figured it's easier to let the DM roll the bones than play around with other websites and link the results over (ala Invisible Castle).

Now that I have those to work with, I'll put something together when I get home from work tonight.

Oh, right. Because I said 32 point buy would be used. (DMG 169) It keeps the chaotic dice-rolling out of the picture and ends up with more fairness between PC's, IMO.

Deadly, I'll make sure to smooth over any issues with you over PM sometime later. Looks pretty good at first glance, though. Very Happy

Edit: There's always something with the rules that I forget to mention. Always. Ergh. You can still have maximum hit points per hit dice for your first level. But it's going to be average after that.

I could give it a shot. How many posts per day would you expect? Oh, and I'll play a cleric.

Well, the other pbp's I've done over in Giantitp's are updated only about once or twice a week. I think that we could get slightly better than that here, though. Maybe once or twice a day?

In other news, two characters are in and sorted. That leaves 2-3 player slots left. Get 'em while they're still hot!

'ell - I somehow glazed over that when I saw the dice roller comment. I can do 32 point buy easy. Sorry for the inconvienience.

I'll be popping up a Human Sorcerer with the Draconic Heritage tree of feats (or the beginnings of it, anyway.) Build is done, just working on background.

I changed Eladan's stats a bit, they should be final now.

To Chilli God, the changes were mostly to his equipment. I added a few lesser stuff, and changed the short sword to a dagger (I realised he wasn't proficient with short swords)

I also changed his abilities slightly, lowering charisma by 2 and raising strength by 1. It fits the character better, and gives a slightly improved carrying capacity.

Okay. That makes four PC's, so we can start the show.
Note that slot #5 will still be open for anyone that wants to shove in their PC late (*Looks at Castaras*), even after I start the game thread up.

Expect to see it up within 12 hours or something like that.

Yay!

Huh. I'd be interested since all my PbPs save the one I'm actually running over on Rawhide's boards have died. Kinda looks like you could use some meat, perhaps? Maybe a fighter or knight to stand in front of the squishyfolk...

I'm off to our tabletop D&D campaign right at the moment but will check back in when I get back.

And, we're underway.
For Destro, Artemis, helgraf, and Deadly, you can introduce your PC's any which way you like, but if we want to get the real adventuring started, I'd prefer it if you introduced yourself whilst walking into the Coronet and Cabbage.

Anyone else who wants to join, that 5th slot is still open for late arrivals. Very Happy

Hokay, here's Graath. If you'd rather not have a monstrous PC, let me know and I'll recreate him as something else. I won't enter the thread until I hear approval from you, Chili God.

((I'll be traveling the next few days; I should have access, but responses might be a touch slow.))

Nono, I did read El J's last post. As I said, the spot's still open.
I'm rather wary about having monstrous PC's, but I do like gnolls. I'll go over the sheet now, El Jaspero.

That's how I read it too...just because I waved my hand doesn't mean I'm in.

If you're wary of monstrous PCs I can easily rework him as a human or something.

Guh...tangledweb has been fantastically annoying with dropped saves this morning. I'm sure it's the interaction between it and the hotel wireless, but it just about made me throw the laptop through the window.

Anyway, here is a slightly different cut of meat shield; basically the same character, just created as a human.

...Crap, I need to check this forum more often, don't I?

Not likely to finish my character soon, so I'll bow out and let El J take the place.
