General information

Post by Reverend Red on Mon Feb 28, 2011 8:53 pm

Hello. This is the first post in the forum, explaining a little bit about what we're doing. So, this is a Play-by-post game for Dungeons and Dragons 3.5. edition with the Tomes added. I've been wanting to play for a while, but because I never manage to find a game I could even remotely give a shit about, I suppose I'll be the DM again. The game is in the hated format because the players are never available around the same time.

A series of massively unimportant events made me combine music stereotypes and fantasy races and therefore, as is typical of me, a new RPG setting. First off, we'll have the technical details, rules and characters, with links to character sheets.

Rules and such:
D&D 3.5 + Frank and K's Tomes.
-Books allowed: Mostly any official, though some stuff will be banned outright, which should be obvious. Don't try to fuck with the game and your character won't have to endure being spontaneously nerfed. Web Enhancements are largely OK. The Tomes are in.
-Characters are either ECL 6 or CR 6 if clearly monstrous. A lot of stuff can come in with changes, such as LA, HD or ability removals so pick what you'd like and we'll work it out.
-You can pick stats that are good for your character, or roll. We started the chargen process with a rolled 58 point buy, so it's really all the same to me.
-Experience is given at a 50% bonus, because it's a little slow to gain levels in PbP
-HP is three quarters.
-Feats: Leadership is OK, but you may only choose a cohort and that cohort must be clearly monstrous. I'll make feats that ”make sense” to suit characters, example being a Divine counterpart for the Precocious Apprentice feat. Ask and thou might receive.
-Starting wealth is standard for ECL 6.
-Playable races are Human, Elf, Dwarf, Orc, Sahuagin, Necropolitan, Warforged (with different fluff) and Half-Giant and a series of subraces for them. Monsters are approved individually.
-Spells like Divination and Contact Other Plane do not exist. Planar travel proper (Summon spells work fine) is not done as usual and teleportation abilities have a different fluff. Your access to other planes is not currently relevant.
-There are no Alignments. Not in entry requirements, not in spell descriptors and not in lame-ass BoED morality.

Gentlemen at play.
-Don'y try to fuck each other or me over . If you don't like the game, don't play.
-Post at least once a day.
-Try to to keep the OOC chatter in a non-IC thread.
-The game contains profanity and other adult shit.

Characters:
[Smapo]:
[Sol]:
[Tshern]:
[Jol]:

This is also the OOC thread, which means, ask questions here. The game is maybe recruiting, so you can drag interested parties to play, if they're decent people.

Also, your characters are advanced PCs. Please toss in one adventure, where they gained some of their levels and wealth. You can make up shit quite freely. Something along these lines:

"Jormdun travelled with a group of fanatical death cultists for a while, trying to find a gem that was keeping a witch from aging and to destroy it. They traveled through the Dread Forest and fought the witch's Age Wraiths, of whom one turned out to be Jormdun's grandfather, sentenced to eternal life. They found and killed the witch, but Jormdun trapped the death cultists in the witch's vault and traveled back to Tizmaen, his home city, turning the gem in to the Pedastal of Air, letting the clergy know he had destroyed the death cult's spearhead and his father that the spirit of their elder had been put to rest."

From that I could pull out a positive relation to the Pedastal of Air, the death cult surviving, the Gem of Life being a key to a larger plot or making the witch's soul torment the party later on. This is done for the plot hooks.

You don't qualify for the flaw Pathetic, because the sum of your ability score modifiers is higher than eight.

By making her middle-aged and switching the +1 from level 4 to Constitution you would keep pretty much the same stats, but you would get more power points and another turn undead attempt.

Why Divine metamagic? You can only persist a single spell with it, so it seems like a waste.

It is a Cleric, it pulls its own weight by definition.

Some more thoughts about your character Sampo.

-Why Detect hostile intent? Too short term to be kept active all the time at a reasonable cost and not too good a power in the first place. For starters, the radius is tiny and it has the [Mind-affecting] descriptor.
-Repair damage is not worth it. No point taking just because it is a Shaper power.
-I would recommend finding a way to get Synchronicity. It is outright amazing with Linked power. Maybe with Expanded knowledge later on?
-Concealing amorpha is excellent. Makes you immune to Sneak attacks for starters and does it better than Detect hostile intent. Combine with Linked power for truly great results.
-Make sure to switch the granted power of Knowledge domain for Knowledge devotion. It doesn't matter whether or not you fight, you get the benefits for spells and powers too and you wouldn't even lose any class skills due to Able learner.
-Any specific reason to pick Pleasure domain? Divine magician alternative class feature from Complete Champions would let you learn some useful spells.

What kind of a cohort are you getting?
