Male Andoran Armsman 6

I would suggest allowing the Wolfbrother prestige class to follow the same BAB as the woodsman (+1 at every level). After all, when Perrin became a wolfbrother, his martial prowess seemed to increase.

I'm open for ideas with the Warder.


Female Domani Wilder 1/Initiate 4/Aes Sedai of the Yellow Ajah 4

Maybe we can have Warder be a template that is added to a person when they receive the warder bond. Something to the effect of +2 Strength, Con, Scaling DR or increased hit points, resistance to weaves/abilities used by Shadowspawn or minions of the Dark One. Things like that. Not sure how it would play out in particular. Also the penalty for the death of the holder of the bond would need to be strong in order to balance the benefits. Mining the books for ideas would be a great place to start for that.

Definitely think Wolfbrother should be a fast attack progression. Also I kind of have the opinion that the warder prestige class kind of sucks and should maybe be altered/updated but not sure how. Armsman or woodsman straight actually gives you better than warder does. Maybe allow the incorporation of bonus sword forms or something into the Warder.


Male Andoran Armsman 6

It seems as if the primary class to take Warder should be Woodsman... So I don't have a lot of the background most warder's have because I didn't go the woodsman route, such as stealth (though the cloak helps), tracking, etc. I think the warder's skill list is a little lacking as well.

The Warder class itself is almost entirely a compilation of bonus feats (such as power attack, cleave, etc) which an armsman could just take as their bonus feat anyway. In fact, the only reason I didn't have power attack already is because I would get it for free anyway. It would be really nice to be able to use sword forms, as Jasmine suggested. Either the version Jasper found, or just take from the blademaster class.

I've actually thought about multiclassing into blademaster or commander, but both of those would take too much effort to get to with very little reward. I can't afford to take the entire whirlwind attack feat path, for example, to just qualify for blademaster.

Really, the whole system needs to be updated, but each project that has started to do so has become to overwhelmed and failed.


Init +5; Senses:Low Light Vision, Scent, See 2x far in daylight, Perception: +13

Yeah Wolf brother is more flavor than good step up class, bad BAB, and skills.


Male Andoran Armsman 6

In the end, I'm playing because of flavor anyway. Unfortunately, balancing the game entirely would probably end up losing some of the trueness to the story. After all, the channeler's are much more powerful than your typically character in WoT. That's why everyone is always so afraid of Aes Sedai.

I wonder how WoT would play out in the FATE system... I'll have to look into that.


Female Domani Wilder 1/Initiate 4/Aes Sedai of the Yellow Ajah 4

True but even with these bonuses the channelers will still be MUCH more powerful but Warders and Wolfbrothers should be better than the average soldier. Warders are the elite and Wolfbrothers are...well...ferocious lol.

Here is what I would say for the bond warder template.

Warder:
+2 enhancement bonus to Strength (Stronger)
+1 hp per level (stacks with toughness) (Tougher)
+5' bonus to speed (Faster)
+2 to all saving throws against weaves and abilities of shadowspawn and darkfriends. (Darkfriend is defined as someone who has sworn oaths to the Dark One)

(to balance these abilities I have increased the penalty to what happens if the bond holder dies. In addition to d4 per level damage, the warder must make a Will save dc equal to the channeler's level +5 or become consumed with finding their own death. Care in another channeler's hands for a full month can give a second save.)

Let me know what you all think.


Female Human Seanchan Wilder 2 / Initiate 3 / Aes Sedai 5

I think the idea is good, except for the bonus to saving throws, as it can give away infromation regarding who is shadow sworn and wo is not, which by the books, the wardens do not know or feel.


m human, Andorian Asha'Man 14 initiate

SO make it a +5 vs shadowspawn, not shadowsworn.

hmmm...if this template keeps, then i may want to be bonded, lol


m human, Andorian Asha'Man 14 initiate

what a weekend. Rained so hard it woke up my kids from the thunder. Almost broke a few windows from the shock waves


Male Andoran Armsman 6

My wife and I just bought a house recently, so we spent the weekend painting. We still have the kitchen, hallway, and three bedrooms to do! I think my next three or fours weekends are going to be busy!


I've been crazy busy and distracted so don't worry about it. And apologies to everyone for being so tardy recently.

No worries Jonasty. Life is like that sometimes. Also, congrats for the new house Jed!


m human, Andorian Asha'Man 14 initiate

congrats on the house jed! i know your pain! the housework is never done.


Male Andoran Armsman 6

No kidding! I haven't even mentioned having to buy a refrigerator, lawn equipment (mower and weedeater) and all the other stuff I have to do! Still, it's better than renting an apartment for the rest of my life.


We're back! Sorry again for the delay everyone.

Given the amount of time since I last posted and the fact that it's Friday, I'm going to allow for a bit of time for people to find their way back to the thread again before posting any major updates. I will respond as necessary but I understand that it might take a little bit for everyone to get back on board.


Male Andoran Armsman 6

Alright! Back in action! Except, I won't have any time to post until probably Monday, unfortunately. Painting the house this weekend, and I'm just too tired after a long day today.

Very excited, though! I just finished my re-read of Dragon Reborn and am moving onto Shadow Rising pretty soon.


m human, Andorian Asha'Man 14 initiate

Shoot, i just remembered this...grrr....

Jonasty, what would be the chances of me finding Rand's angreal amongst the wagons? I meant to ask this two weeks ago, but forgot it til now. I know this is a long shot...


You wouldn't have found his angreal, no.


m human, Andorian Asha'Man 14 initiate

darn...a +3 Angreal wouldve been nice :)


Male Andoran Armsman 6

Hey guys, I just wanted to let you know that I haven't had much time to post lately. We are coming upon an important milestone at work, and once that is passed I should have a little more time on hand. I have been reading your posts though.

Jed would probably just take a bath of his own and then head down to the common room to join the rest of the group at the table. If things are still moving along slowly, I'll make my post as soon as I have the time.


Male Andoran Armsman 6

Just a quick heads up to you all to let you know I won't be available all weekend. We are moving to our new house officially, and I won't have Internet, much less any time to jump on the forums until probably Tuesday. Have a great weekend!

Good luck with the move Jed!


Male Andoran Armsman 6

All moved in and very sore! It took two full loads of a 14 foot truck and about 8 total hours of moving everything, but we got it done. Of course, now we have boxes stacked willy-nilly everywhere in the house...


Ugh I've been there. This is the 4th apartment my wife have been in in the last 6 years. Hoping the next time when it happens will be the last time.

Yeah, I have a move ahead of me. I rented a storage unit and have been gradually moving boxes up ahead of time. Now we just have to find a house and actually have our offer accepted...


Female Human Seanchan Wilder 2 / Initiate 3 / Aes Sedai 5

Hi everyone, sorry for the long outage, I've had to go abroad unexpectedly on a business trip, and then was sick at home. I'm going back to work now, and will catch on quickly to get back into posting. If it's necessary feel free to DMPC me in the near 1-2 days if it's necessary, until I get back into speed.

My apologies for not posting much in the last couple of days, but I've completely screwed up my computer. I'll be able to fix it this weekend (hopefully), but until then, all I have is my work computer, and they tend to frown on me being online a lot at work...


No worries everyone. It's been slow going getting us back up to speed but that happens. Just glad to see everyone has chimed in at least once.


m human, Andorian Asha'Man 14 initiate

What kind of PC issues you having alathea?


Female Ebou Dari Wilder 6/(former potential) Aes Sedai 4

I was a little reckless using the dd(1) utility and overwrote some of my computer's files that it needs to boot up. Fortunately, I have a restore disc, but unfortunately, it's not with me at the time. I'll get it fixed tomorrow or Saturday when I get back to Madison and get my disc.


Female Domani Wilder 1/Initiate 4/Aes Sedai of the Yellow Ajah 4

out until Sunday probably due.to bro in law graduating. Please npc in meantime. Thanks!


Female Domani Wilder 1/Initiate 4/Aes Sedai of the Yellow Ajah 4

We dragging a bit? Everyone still good to go?


I'm still around but to be honest I am struggling keeping up with this game. Things have been crazy and I'm finding it really difficult to run the home brew stuff right now. I had a certain amount of stuff planned but it's not as easy as running one of the AP's where all the work is done for me.

Obviously this isn't something you guys probably want to hear and I'm not officially ending this yet but I wanted to let you know where I'm at.


Hey everyone. I've made a tough decision and will be shutting this game down at this point. Things have slowed down and I've found it difficult to keep up with the home brew stuff, as much as I love Wheel of Time. RL has been busy lately and it's simply easier for me to run the pre-published stuff on the boards.

I'm sorry to let you guys down, I had an EXTREMELY fun time running this game for you all. It was a pleasure getting to enjoy the WoT world with all of you, and your passion made this game amazing. If I attempt to run another game on the boards at some point, I would ask you all to apply if it's something you find interesting as you're all very strong players and would add to any game I run.

Hopefully things will balance out in the future and maybe I can start another WoT game up but if not, I want to thank you again for allowing me the chance to enjoy this game for as long as we did.

Your DM


Male Andoran Armsman 6

Thanks for the wild ride DM! It really has been amazing playing with you and the rest of the group. You did an amazing job at immersing us in Jordan's world.

Would you mind if someone were to take over your job, or would you prefer it be left alone? I'd like to continue playing if everyone is up for it, and if someone would be interested in running it, we could do that.

I would consider it myself, though I think I would need some time to put things together (having never run a homebrew before).


m human, Andorian Asha'Man 14 initiate

Indeed jonasty, this was great! Loved the plot line!

as for continuing the story with the same characters, I could easily tie this group in with my WOT adventure im running...but again, if Jonasty is up for allowing it.


It has been a pleasure reading your exploits. Again, I think that Jonasty did a great job immersing you in Robert Jordan's world and I felt that the player posts felt true to the backgrounds and concepts and I enjoyed reading it. Best of luck to you all, if someone else takes over I may well keep lurking and enjoying the read ;).


I'd lveo it if someone wanted to take over this game from me! (Who knows, maybe if things slowed down I'd be able to pick it up again later.)

But yeah, if someone can take my duties, please do so as I would love for this to continue on. There isn't much WoT action on these boards so if you can keep it alive, all the better. I won't close the thread just yet, let me know if I should have the admin's switch it to someone else and if so, then to who.

Once again thanks for the compliments and I'm glad you guys had fun. I wish I could keep it going.


Female Domani Wilder 1/Initiate 4/Aes Sedai of the Yellow Ajah 4

Ah no! I missed out on your Skull & Shackles and now I can't get my DMJ fix here either! I had an absolutely amazing time with this game and would love to continue. DMJ I totally understand about writing homebrew vs a published adventure and I am secretly hoping one of your S&S players walks the proverbial plank so I can try and sneak in lol.

If someone was able to take over running that would be amazing. Maybe DMJ would like to play for a while instead of run but I don't know how your schedule is. That way you could keep involved in the game but at a much lower responsibility level. Just an idea but either way I had a great time and hope to continue with you all as this is an amazing crew.


Well with regards to me running things, I'm going to see how S&S goes. So far it's been smooth and pretty low maintenance since it's all pre-designed for me. If it continues to be as simple as it has and it seems a viable option, I might run another AP in the future. Pre-published really does make a noticeable difference on the amount of work I have to do.

As far as me playing vs running this game, I wouldn't say no to taking a shot as a PC if that were to happen. Playing in a game is infinetly more managable than running one, at least for me. But we'll see what happens with this game from here.

Thanks, Jonasty! I'm sad that you're no longer able to keep up with running this game, but I've had a great time playing in it. (That goes for the rest of the players as well, you're just as responsible for making the game a good one.)

I'd certainly be interested in continuing the game under another game master, but I don't feel comfortable taking it over myself. I don't think I'd be able to pick up someone else's narrative effectively.

However, I am thinking of running a (completely unrelated) pbp campaign of my own, and I'd love to have any or all of you in my game. It'll be a AD&D 2e campaign (PHB/DMG/MM only to start) set in a world where the orcish and goblinoid races are the protagonists. If you're interested, send me a message and I'll get to work writing up some player information materials.

Ditto to all who have said that this has been a great game. I have enjoyed it immensely. I am sad to see you set it aside Jonasty. You've done a great job running this.

If someone does decide to pick it up, I would like to continue as well. I would definitely not have the time to run it though. Life is a bit insane right now.

Yours sounds interesting too Alathea, but I dont have any of the old ad&d stuff.


Male Andoran Armsman 6

Same here, I've never played AD&D 2e before, and I don't really have the time to try and learn the system.


m human, Andorian Asha'Man 14 initiate

Hmmmmmm.... I have an idea in the back of my head as to how this adventure will play out, so I will take over as DM, if no one objects and since Jonasty has given the blessing for anyone to take over.

Keep an eye on the board for a post to continue the adventure...


Female Domani Wilder 1/Initiate 4/Aes Sedai of the Yellow Ajah 4

Im not sure if I should be excited or horrified that Jasper is taking over. The madness the sheer madness! Lol no. That's awesome. Thanks for giving it a shot.


Init +5; Senses:Low Light Vision, Scent, See 2x far in daylight, Perception: +13

I will be keeping an eye on the posts.


Male Andoran Armsman 6

But if you take over we won't have any badass male channelers any more!

Haha, thanks for giving it a shot. Maybe (if I can get some things in order) I can take over in the future. We could have a rotating DM thing going on.


m human, Andorian Asha'Man 14 initiate

OOOO that would be cool. rotating DM sounds fun.

as for badass male channeler, He will still be there, for a little bit. When it becomes convienent for Jasper to go away from the party, he will. But, he will come back after "training" lol.

BTW, first post is up, so feel free to start again. RizzenMagnus is my DM alias.

Changes:

The wolfbrother prestige class has the same BAB rate as a martial class, +1 per level.

If jed wants to try it, how bout we give the warder template a try that proposed by Jasmine last month...unless anyone else wants to be a warder?

I have been working on a conversion of WOT from 3.0 to pathfinder, and i will post the link tomorrow when i get to work.


m human, Andorian Asha'Man 14 initiate

jonasty, if youd like, you can go ahead and make a character.
Being a lover of WOT, i am sure you can come up with a kick-ass character...
