That's fine - she's not having a particularly good day, and it's about to get worse.

Roleplay for a bit. I'm going to be busy through this weekend with a church event so it'll take me a minute to put into play your Christmas presents. Worth the wait, though.

Cheers!

In lieu of calculating XP, I'm bumping each of you to 2nd level. If you have already accrued enough XP for 2nd level, I'm bumping you halfway up to third level. Use the XP tables for your review.


Uthecar has 1,786 XP currently with 2,001 XP required for 2nd level.  Where shall I place him in the 2,001 to 4,000 XP range.  I'm finding an attraction to 3,999. :o)

Re: OOC: The First Chapter - August 2016
2001 sounds about right. Don't want to make it too easy, though I've given a king's ransom to the multi-classes by bumping both.

My hope is to accelerate your advancement for the short term as you prepare to take on greater challenges. Think of it this way: You've taken out a 4th level thief, a 5th level MU (albeit one who didn't have a full contingent of spells), 2 ghasts, 1 shadow, one giant skeleton...along with a handful of goblins and other humanoids.

In the grand scheme, those are pretty tough monsters for 1st level characters. Add to that some fun roleplaying and I'm pretty happy to reward you all as a group.

Hopefully, everyone takes the time to update their character sheets over the next few days.

Sorry, but I too am having a busy RL time right now. I'll try to post later tonight.

Exciting to be 2nd Cleric/Fighter!

1600 posts - add another 160 XP to the totals after your XP reward.

Nice job sticking with me.

Let's try to get your character sheets done this week - let me know if you have questions.

Thanks.

Re: OOC: The First Chapter - August 2016
Understand about real life: Engine light came on this morning. Good times.

I'm not cracking the whip, tho, so take your time. I'm planning on some updates to the game this weekend - first w/end since thanksgiving (November for you out of towners) that I've had to myself (wife will be busy).

Looking forward to the next chapter - foes get harder, but the loot gets better.

Cheers.

Gyahhhh!!!

Sorry to hear that. I'll send a witch doctor to cast out the evil spirits. If that don't work, I'll send my priest. He looks like Bilbo Baggins (no, really, he does!).

Does your priest have hairy toes and like a good beer? If so, he is a fine feller in my book!

50-year-old Bilbo or eleventy-first Bilbo?  If he loves beer and has hairy toes, I suppose it doesn't really matter.

Re: OOC: The First Chapter - August 2016
Definitely eleventy-first.

Great guy. Tough childhood. Beneath the soft exterior is a will of steel, but a gentle soul nonetheless. He's transformed the dynamic of the parish from a bunch of bystanders to active participants. It's been pretty amazing to see, actually. Typically Catholics are a stoic, punch the clock lot.

I, on the other hand, am more like Boromir. Badass with really low wisdom...and maybe not really a badass either.

:)

Make sure you guys get your sheets updated.

Re: OOC: The First Chapter - August 2016
Good news indeed about your church.
Even though I didn't grow up Methodist, I've come to consider myself one after being involved in the church for the last 13 or so years. We need a revival like nobody's business!

Re: OOC: The First Chapter - August 2016
It's hard to do. I think, for us, it's taken a lot of hard work by just a few people. One of the best things Father did, was to start an annual retreat for both men and women. That's pushed the spirit along in the parish, and more folks (like myself) who just did Sunday and that was it, are now involved in parish events.

Whatever organization/religion, etc. one belongs to, it takes a lot of effort to get the ball rolling, but once it does, its amazing how far the ball will roll on momentum alone.

Re: OOC: The First Chapter - August 2016
Okay, folks, let's update character sheets ASAP. I'm going to do a review this coming week - there likely won't be a tone of posting, but expect some PM's if I think you need a prod.

Thanks for your continued participation in the game. I'm enjoying myself. Hope y'all are too.

Re: OOC: The First Chapter - August 2016
I think I managed the levelling stuff, but let me know if I missed or messed anything, Seer.

I'm having a great time!

By the way, my brother just started a 5e game and it's a bit weird, because he and I haven't gamed together like this since we were kids. A lot of fun (yes, despite my dislike of D&D -- long story, have ranted this out already to the Seer and don't want to be boring or suggest that my statement above is untrue) and I've found that playing this AD&D game has given me some interesting perspective in the latest version of the game.

Re: OOC: The First Chapter - August 2016
Glad you're having a good time - just downloaded the 5e basic rule set - haven't delved into it yet, but looking forward to generating some ideas from it.

-------------------------------------

Side note: Important.

Note the House rule for Hitpoints and Multiclass characters. You need a slide rule to figure it out vis a vis the AD&D rules, but I think I've made it a bit simpler.

Keep the constitution bonus as you level up. Just make sure you continue to divide the rolled HP by 2. Wouldn't want fifth level fighter/thieves sporting 80HP (well, unless I was a player, of course!).

Let me know if there are any questions.

Re: OOC: The First Chapter - August 2016
Check the dice roller and make sure I did this correctly. Added CON bonus for both classes; rolled 21 total; divided by 2 = 10 > right?

Re: OOC: The First Chapter - August 2016
9+12/2=10.5, round down = 10 HP rolled. Then, I'm giving you additional 4 HP for +2 constitution bonus +2 Fighter, +2 Cleric = 4.

10+4=14 - you get 14 HP.

Gives you a bit buff for advancing both classes at the same time. Even if you're only advancing 1 class, you're still getting the full constitution bonus.

Re: OOC: The First Chapter - August 2016
I added the +4 in with my rolls. My original rolls were 1d8 = 7 and 1d10 = 10; the +2 CON bonus gave me 9 & 12.
So, should I have 17 divided by 2 = 8 +4 = 12 or keep what I originally posted?

Re: OOC: The First Chapter - August 2016
Is there anyone who's not a multi-class in this group!  LOL - buffed party - gonna have to adjust accordingly. Death rays and gatling guns here we go.


Kullonar: 12 total is correct - add the two scores/2, then add your total constitution bonus (+2,+2 = 4)

I suspected this would be confusing. No worries, we'll figure it out.

Re: OOC: The First Chapter - August 2016
There will be a treasure tally this week. Yes, she has a few nifties. So does her beau, who Weasel got with a sick backstab (did he mention that already? LOL) though you might have to look a bit harder to find those.

Hey, wanted to say, thanks again for playing. Without getting too sappy, you guys all make this game fun. I'm just a story teller. I'm always amazed at the cleverness of players, the actions they set for their characters that are both brilliant (or not!) and unexpected.

You all are some of the best players I've had the pleasure of playing with. I don't think I've said that enough.

Let's try to get character sheets done as best you can. The next chapter awaits.

The Seer.
