*lol... I find it funny, only one Cleric entry though there are some Bard/Oracle entries.
I like oracles more than clerics - they mostly get better hooks for RP and with life link they tend to be better healers in combat at every level except 11. Out of combat the cleric can push more healing in the levels they're a spell level ahead, but once you're out of combat wands are more efficient. Since you both just use wands of CLW anyways, might as well have the more interesting RP. (This is why clara has two wands, as do a few others). To be fair to clerics there's that one bump when the cleric has heal but the oracle doesn't at level 11 where it's clear the cleric has a better kit, but every other level feels better to me as an oracle.
Anyways, fluff before crunch is way more important to being invested, so I tend to make oracles. Although after the comment about dwarf running for god I'll probably try a travel domain dwarf next time I do a cleric. The surly "But my god says it's good for me" routine sounds hilarious.
I forgot the details of how I did it, but back when D20 system was relatively new, I was in a game playing a monk that at level 18 (started at 1st) he had a base movement speed of 240' a round. I remember using the Oriental Adventure book and had a magical item that gave me a boost. I was playing a Monk. After that, the DM wouldn't let me play a monk again. :P Which was fine, we were still testing out the system.
I played a 12 year old girl prodigy wizard after that, who loved tossing fireballs around.
After careful selection, here are the 8 characters I have chosen.
Those 8 people report here:
For the rest, I will put on a waiting list if someone doesn't show up or has to drop out.
And Thank You for everyone that showed interest.
