Looking for brave adventurers to surrender their souls to the darkness...

I've got a campaign that's been hungering for playtime!

Who wants to see exotic, misty places; meet the Vistani; and get killed by the eldest of Vampires?  ...  um... I mean: kill the eldest of vampires?

With fun cameos by undead, lycanthropes, plague victims, and distrusting villagers?

Level 13 to 16; 32 point buy; 500,000 gold; Taint and Penalties in effect

Not sure if you really meant the 500,000 in gold or how you want hit points done.  

Here's the beginnings of Ruadhan  You can tell me what you want changed.

Oooh... an adventure I can't possibly pass up on. I guess I'll be busy with PbP games, but exams are soon over so why not...

I've been itching to get a high level character going for a long time. Going with an acrobatic spellcaster... a swashbuckling mage, so to say. I think I'll use the Daggerspell mage PrC (complete adventurer) if that's ok.

So what is the exact level? And is it ok if I use an FR specific race (strongheart halfling)?

Gold:  Yep, half a million.  You'll need it.  Though beware...

Penalties:  Encumberance counts, so watch how you spend the half-million.

Level: Oh, let's say 15 1/2  (XP to get you halfway to 16, that is).

Race:  Anything goes in Ravenloft.  After you pick I'll let you know what fun things will afflict you, and give you a chance to change your mind.

Looks fun. I'll see what I come up with. *likes making high level chars*

Will probably be a drow with a generic base class. Maybe shadowdancer also...*hmm*

Ravenloft?
Taint rules?
Fenric as DM?
Even being in as many PbPs as I am, I can't pass this up.

Howeeeever...
Do we have to be good, or can we be evil? Do you want us to be ECL 13, or level 13?
Would you be unhappy if I decided to play an undead character (due to the way that would interact with Taint rules?)
Oh, and also an important question: What source are you drawing your taint rules from?

Edit: And what books? Any books?
I'm considering Incarnum...

Ah ok.

I'll probably do a Thief then.

EDIT:
Couple of Questions;
Level Adjustment - How much can we have? Is the xp still fixed (at 112500, Lv 15.5 given no LA)?
Frostburn - How dead will an Uldra get to be? ;P.

Question: I am thinking of making a drow character, still not sure on what class - If I was to be a drow, how badly am I going to die?

Neat. Will see about creating my character, then.

This should be interesting.

I'm thinking Monk. Because I like them, haven't used them in forever, and it'll drive Amber crazy. ^-^

I'm getting extremely tempted to make an old dwarven cleric/master of shrouds (Libris Mortis) instead. That's what I get for looking through books... too many good ideas

Given the go-ahead; Mine will be an Uldra Rogue. =). I think I can pull someone like that off.

Updated Ruadhan and my brain is fried for the moment on her.  How will we figure hit points and check over all my stuff, what else do you expect or want to see?

You do not have to be good.  Remember that Taint skips straight to the interesting bits if you're evil.

Undead are, of course, not affected.  But you start to loose your free will.

Level 15 1/2.  I'll ignore ECL for LA less than 4 - at that level, the stats and special abilities won't help - and I will be assigning offsetting penalties.

Taint:  From the "Journey to Castle Ravenloft" 3.5 ed sourcebook.

Incarnum:  Allowed, but I'm going to treat it like clerical power:  Evil descriptor takes a taint penalty, good descriptor is less effective and attracts attention.

ROLL YOUR HIT POINTS

No, I don't want to see the evidence.  If you look faked, I'll sick undead on you and drain levels.

Here is Glaciermelt so far.

Still need to do HP and monetary stuff.

Fenric; So what you mean is... I'd still have 15 rogue levels?

Gwen: Looks good so far.  You are going to get Bloodlust as a penalty, I'll get the exact numbers after I convert them from 2nd edition.  The basic idea is that every time you shift, you have to make a Will save to avoid going into an uncontrollable rage like a berserker without the the berserker's benefits.  This save is something you should make almost every time.  You will also have to make a (much harder) save if you take enough damage to have to make a system shock check.   Also:  should NPCs see you shift, they will assume you are a were creature and react accordingly.

Yes, Exy: that's what I mean...  I have to have something for the undead to drain away, after all - can't take LA.  Your character is not going to be popular with the NPC's, seeming too much like some strange undead halfling.  I don't think you need to be penalized further.

Vael:  Still thinking (really, I ran out of time before I had to go to work)

Which spellcasting class is he advancing with his Geomancer levels? Or are you alternating?

Wizard spellcasting (transmutation specialist, necromancy and illusion forbidden).

As far as divine casting go. Just level 3.

So don't count on me for superb healing. That bonus healingfeat  is there to compensate the low level of the spells and to add to the feeling of "Servant of Ragnorra".

Edit: AAAAARGH. Bloody "Other notes" entry that keeps suddenly disapearing!
