I have some cash left over so i was thinking of buying a cart or wagon and some mules to carry our mountains of loot ( I will also have floating disk to help get it out of the dungeon ).

Does this work with the storyline of us just appearing in the new demiplane? Is there anything there at all, other people? I am assuming we would appear with familiars, or animal companions? What about mounts or other mundane animals we purchased, or large items that aren't carryable ( such as a rowboat or something ).


Well, we are expecting 5ft wide corridors...so a sled like for a dog sled is more what I would think to look at. Because even people can pull those, and you can always drag more than you can carry.


If it's carried on your body or a companion as part of your class (i.e. familiars), then it can come - you won't be bringing any truly bulky items with you, though. However, PCs will have the option to eventually purchase just about anything.

As for the demiplane, there are no other people. As mentioned, it's about 20 feet on each side. There is literally nothing there except the ground, the air, a box to pour treasure into, a note explaining that you should do so if you want nice things, and a door. XD Dim lighting, too, which just seems to be there somehow.

As general rules for any wagon-type things you might get later...

1) If it's more than 5 feet wide, don't even bother unless you can shrink it somehow.
2) Traps exist. You may not always be able to get the vehicle safely past them.

Same goes for mounts, by the way. If it's bigger than Medium and can't become smaller, it's probably not going to work too well.


Hetra Karet's roles will primarily be buffing and some utility with his ranger levels. I chose Trapper to get a second trapfinder, though he'll also function as offense. In addition, Souleater will give him some crafting utility and give us free monies, up to 300 GP per day thanks to another Amulet I'm crafting at level 3, as well as the Summon Cacodaemon letting us grab more free money for upgrades.

So, part crafter, utility, and offense.

Cool, so the place is pretty small to start with. I figured I would leave the wagon and animals outside the dungeon, but it seems like once we leave the dungeon we can just dump the loot into the box, and not have to haul it home? ( it was more for that). having a mule and a cart in the dungeon is a pain. That's why I will have floating disk.


Dumping loot into the box is solely for purchasing BP. ^^ Also as mentioned, you'll need to build a bank if you want to securely store your loot.


Pretty much complete with my character, although I need to spend some more money yet and scribe the backstory and flavor stuff to the profile.

I will have spell support from two classes(primarily buffs,utility,heals, restorative,support), channeling, a few handy powers, backup archery, as well as scribe scrolls, and brew potions at level 1.

Are we really going to have tons upon tons of loot that we won't be able to secure it on our persons because of encumberance? Unless I'm misreading on how you plan on Dming, you make it sound like you are going to hand out more loot than we can handle.

Guess I'm going to have to buy one of these down the road...this belt then my very person can carry it all, and I'd love to see an enemy try to steal something from me.


There's a reason why I'm encouraging all participants to look into ways to store additional loot. ^^

If there is no one else there why are we securing it? why not just pile it on the ground. Is there a ground? What is the place made of when we arrive? Is it just 6 grey sides of a cube? Is there atmosphere, weather, nature etc?

Also, you mentioned that interplanar travel spells will not work quite right. What about regular summoning spells, or things like planar ally, etherealness etc?


Well since we have to carry it to initially have it Im guessing a dog sled is out :P


Spells to temporarily summon allies will work - but neither they nor you will be able to use magic to let you escape from the demiplane. As for securing it... yeah, you can just dump it on the ground at the start, but you WILL likely be getting other people eventually, so...

The place itself is made of an indeterminate gray substance. Slightly soft, but with no major characteristics besides that. Seems to resist damage, though.

There's enough atmosphere to breathe, but no real weather, nature, or anything else - you have to actually BUY something to even get a day/night cycle. XD It's a very, very, very boring area to start out with.

Also, you can use equipment to transport stuff out - you do NOT have to carry all of it by hand. Merely being in your possession, for a reasonable definition of the term, will suffice. ^^


So people could buy things like carts to start? And be transported in with them? You made it sound like they couldn't


No, you cannot bring large items like carts in with you. In general, assume that if you can't normally carry it, it probably won't come. Of course, you're always welcome to ask about specific items if you're unsure. ^^


Welp here come poles, canvas and stretchers to the rescue ^.^


May I have the half-wheelbarrow template? ;)

^^

It also sounds like perhaps taking item creation feats at the very beginning will not get much use until we have an environment in which to acquire raw materials and components to make the items.


That... is true. ^^ However, the resource nodes for expanding the base will qualify as a source of most materials (metal, wood, etc.), so there is that for anyone who wants to craft. ^^ You can also expect the buildable shops to sell the rest of the supplies you'll need.


Alright I think my crunch is done.


Ryn's description:
Ryn is a large, broad-shouldered man, standing about six and a half feet tall. His skin has a slightly bluish cast, and has penetrating, sky-blue eyes.

Ryn's background:
Ryn grew up at a monastery called The Sheltered Cave, located in the far north. At an early age, the Brothers of the Sheltered Cave began his training in their peculiar style of unarmed combat, which emphasized defensive tactics and luring opponents into overextending themselves by displaying apparent weaknesses. Eventually the Brothers realized that Ryn possessed a touch of giant blood that gave him arcane powers, and they encouraged him to incorporate these powers into his own personal version of the Way of the Sheltered Cave. He had only recently embarked on this mission of discovery when he suddenly appeared in a dim 20x20 room with several other people. Now Ryn must discover what has happened to him, develop his contribution to the Way of the Sheltered Cave, and perhaps (someday) reach home again.

The background is short because he's a 1st level character :).

Background:

Asimi Skia was born with silver skin and black eyes, much to the horror of her mother. When her mother recovered enough she moved, going to a far away town and living on the outskirts. She became the hedge witch for the town and rumors circulated about the strange silver child. Her mother always sent her into the woods when they had visitors, keeping her segregated for her own good. Curious though she would sneak around watching people wondering what they were up to. It took her a couple of years but she realized she was different. For one, she was silver skinned and had pointed ears. Also, people had colored eyes. Her's were solid black. On top of that, they aged faster. It was subtle but she noticed it. One day a lone hunter stumbled upon her. An elf. He went to attack her only to stop when her mother told him to stop coming out of the woods. It was then she learned that she resembled a being called a drow. Her mother convinced the elf to teach her the ways of the woods and how to stay hidden from the world. Now her training is complete and mysterious energies are at work.

YAY got replacement battery. Umm I hope this works.

The Exchange

looking forward to watching this game, I love the cityscape aspect of it. A real 4X style game. You guys have fun with it, and I'll be in the OOC comments sometimes :D

@Players: I'll be linking Discussion and Campaign threads in just a moment, then see if I can make the initial map in Roll20. ^^ If not, I'll be trying something else to show the expanded nature of your new home. Oh, and be sure to include your encumbrance in your aliases, since that is in force for this game. ^^

@Everybody Else: Thank you for taking the time to submit your characters! ^^ Remember, if you'd still like to play and want to see if you can get in at a future date, you can make a post here to sign up for the waiting list with your character - if somebody does drop out, I'll look at the characters on the waiting list first (before public recruitment) and see if you're still interested/available then. ^^


everyone in, have fun.

Edit: on the waiting list, this alias isn't going anywhere.


I'd like on the waiting list too.


Ummm? My class looks weird.


Sure.


...So it does. XD Fixed!

I was looking through a lot of profiles there. XD; Must've copied the wrong bit.


Awesome! I'll get an alias made and dot the relevant threads shortly. :-)


I was out tonight at Friday Night Magic at my local comic book store. Give me a bit to post my CS, and thanks for possibly allowing me in!


Thank you very much :)

I'll get the sheet in order, probably midway through tomorrow, as I don't have any other obligations that day.


Mostly finished, just need to pick traits(I have two in mind, but just want to see if there's something better), my last two skills, spells(Simple enough) and gear(which won't be too much beyond my weapons listed.

Would Knowledge(Local) or disguise be of any actual use here?


Disguise... doubtful, unless you want to integrate with a group of enemies who could potentially be friendly. XD Knowledge (Local)... well, there IS no local, really, until you build it up. But you could if you wanted to.


Know(local) is used to identify some monster types, so it's always good to grab. I'm working toward having ranks in all Knowledges, but it's always good to have backup. :-)
