@Hp - 44 at the moment. Might realize that taking my favoured class bonus as a skill point is a bit greedy and switch that over later :P

Question @Awakened Dream Spider

1) What class level would you peg this at (bear in mind that Awaken adds 2HD, so it is a total of 3hd of smart spider : ) )?

2) Is it okay if I assume average rolls on the Awaken bonuses (aka an int of 10 and a cha bonus of +2) for a total array of Str 10 Dex 15 Con 12 Int 10 Wis 12 Cha 13?

3) Is it okay if I use a 3 point buy on it (the standard monster 10 10 10 11 11 11 array) and shuffle the stats around a bit?

44 HP here. Trying to make sure I have some good defensive spells because being a Wrathful Thassalonian Wizard, Conjuration and Abjuration aren't even on my spell list.

As for all Core races being 0RP... OHMYGODYES


Wait a second...you're making a Thassilonian Evoker, too?
Are you an elf, as well?

... I don't even want to answer that question now haha, but yes. I didn't read most of the character ideas and missed that's exactly what you had going. Guess I'll be looking at changing the build.


Yeah...sorry about that.

While I think two Evokers would be fine, two elven Thassilonian Evokers probably won't be.


@HP with toughness, 14 CON, and the Transmutation school's ability, I'm sitting at 65 HP.


51hp


Two elven Thassilonian Evokers shouldn't be a problem. The evocation school is vast. It's not like you each have to blast fireballs the whole time. Evocation is the school of some of the best battlefield control spells. So I don't think you will hurt the party much by sticking to what you want to play.

But I thought hurting was what Evokers wanted to do?

Hue hue ...


Oh, I see what you did there.

That all seems reasonable to me. I would peg the spider at class level 3. I can see those specialized skills coming in handy. Not to mention the poisonous web.


Oh I'm hoping that the poisonous web is going to come in much more then handy. Stuffing it down someones chimney seems way too fun :P

And that begs another question - are our sidekicks bound to be wizards too or do they have a much wider freedom of choice?


The time has come folks. Please prepare your characters and post in the main gameplay thread. Instructions are there. Make sure you explain how you get the key out. Once I have your post, I'll send out more personal instructions on how to proceed. If you have already received a PM, please wait until I get everyone up to speed before posting again.

This is all part of the selection process. For it is not I who will determine your worthiness for this campaign, but another.


Sidekicks can be whatever.


Mkay.

95% done (missing 1 feat, my scrolls as well as a paragraph or two more in the 'about' section. Also missing data for mundane attacks, but who needs those :P?) so I think I'll drop by the gameplay thread before I go to sleep.

Also Mesmerist was really cool for a adorable little spider : )


Shoot! I thought I had till the end of the day and won't have time to finish until late this afternoon or evening

Deadline: Midnight of Jan 4th PST. I'll go over them the 5th, and then we'll move forward.

Is this no longer the time for closed recruitment?

I, to, am nearly done, and thought we had until Midnight tonight to finish up.


Wow, I had somehow completely missed the deadline :(. Guess you'll have to go without me... I don't remember last time I saw a game start without explicitly selecting players first.


Well, wait a second.

The gameplay thread he linked says it's for all applicants.
Sort of a test-application, which I think is very appropriate for this theme.

I guess I'll see if I can get something together before the end of the day. I have the character pretty well tought out, just not written down.


Oh, woops, it's still the 4th! I'm off a day :/ You still have until the end of the day.


We don't get background skills right?


Only if you want to spend point on them, but no, I'm not using the background skill system.


Elven Thassilonian Evoker, reporting in as done!

Still finishing up her wizard apprentice, though.
When I'm done, I'll put him in her profile, and post to the gameplay.


Well heck, I wish I'd seen this thread sooner! Looks like a good excuse to get up to some marvelous high-jinks, Rhialto style, and I think the dove & key test is very novel.

There's no way I'm going to come up with a complete character within the next 74 minutes, but hopefully if you have anyone drop you'll open up recruitment again.

Good luck with this - the concept is full of really fun possibilities, and I'll definitely be lurking to see how things go!


Oh! I completely forgot skills for Seraphim! I'll have to do them now!

Hopefully that doesn't disqualify me, I've really been looking forward to this game ever since I saw it!


Yeah, I won't be able to finish my character at all :(. I got stats, feats, spells and gear down, but that's not nearly a complete character... Here is what I've done so far, in case anyone cares.


Why don't you try to finish it anyway?

Surely he'll be lenient, as I haven't seen that many fully completed characters anyway.


Still need gear, but otherwise I believe this character is complete.


Yah, I don't think he cares too much if a skill point or two is missing.

Also your google doc denies access which is probably a bigger hurdle :P


I'll try to get it together then, hopefully that'll be fine.


Go ahead and submit. I have to work today anyway, so I won't get a chance to review until this evening.


I'll try to sneak in a submission, but it may well depend on which of us gets back from work first; sadly no internet access at my job. And posting entire character from my phone is.. implausible.


Finally got skills, and a set of sample (combat-ready) spells prepared for Seraphim.

Will probably finish up her apprentice soon, although that may have to wait until tomorrow.
Just recognize she has one.

Edit: forgot background! Duh! Will type that up tonight.


For your consideration, if I'm not too late - Shadwell Wallbloom the Overlooked. Will have background and math completed in an hour or two, key retrieval will be up shortly.


Submissions for characters are now closed. Thanks for the submissions everyone. I appreciate all the thought that has gone into the characters so far. I'll start the selection process soon. Everyone who has already posted in the gameplay forum is in the runnings. Please stand by for more instructions.
