Re: Character Creation OOC
Wow...my stats are:


Str: 10
Int: 10
Wis: 12
Dex: 10
Con: 10
Cha: 4

I suppose Cleric might be my best option...

Re: Character Creation OOC
Wow. Maybe drop points from Str or Int to boost Wis?

Re: Character Creation OOC
Nope, can't lower a score below 9. And since you lower by 2, you can't lower scores that are 10.

Re: Character Creation OOC
So, Dwarf question.

Dwarves can't use size L melee weapons. They get the Charge with Lance and Set with Spear fighter abilities, but both Lances and Spears are size L weapons.

Whhhhaaaaaa?

Re: Character Creation OOC
Drop Strength, raise Wisdom, be a Cleric. Or raise Int, be a Wizard.

Re: Character Creation OOC
I'm assuming you want a prime requisite of 15 to get +5% XP.

Here's a few options:

Lower Str to 10 & Int to 9 and raise Wis to 15 for cleric.

Lower Str to 10 & Wis to 10 and raise Int to 15 and go magic-user.

Lower Int to 9 & Wis to 10 and raise Str to 15 and go Dwarf or Fighter.

Lower Str to 10, Int to 9, & Wis to 10 and raise Dex to 15 and go thief.

Lots of options.

Dex can't be lowered, but otherwise that seems solid.

Re: Character Creation OOC
Oops, yeah, I just realized that and edited my post. And I also realized that 12 Str and 10 Str are basically equal, so I agree with the original concept of lowering Str for cleric.

Re: Character Creation OOC
Strength 16
Intelligence 8
Wisdom 4  (why yes, I'd love to go do that for you)
Dexterity 13
Constitution 12
Charisma 8

So with hearing there are fighters/dwarves maybe Hafling or thief?

Re: Character Creation OOC
With those stats, I'd definitely go with fighter. You can never have too many tanks.

Re: Character Creation OOC
By the way, considering that my stats are pretty much average across the board (except for Cha), I'm planning to wait and see what everyone else comes up with and filling in the gaps. I can basically play anything other than a mystic, albeit without a very high prime requisite.

Re: Character Creation OOC
Welcome All.

I've let 9 players in at this point and have closed up applications to the game.  If my experience on RPOL hold true we will unfortunately loose 1-2 during character creation.

Looks like the only Solid choice is

Player 4:  Dwarf

Leanings from cross talk appear to be:

Player 1:  Magic-User
Player 3:  Fill in the Gap
Player 6:  Fighter
Player 5:  Thief

Player 2:  Has not rolled
Player 7,8,9 Have not rolled or posted:

Re: Character Creation OOC
Player 5-Got it thanks

As for Demi-humans and Fighter feats.  Will have to look, but I thought I remembered that All three could use a spear and dwarfs and elf's could use a lance.

I will dig, but that makes sense to me.

Re: Character Creation OOC
I ended up with pretty average rolls...so I'll probably go with a cleric (that way we'll have at least one)

Re: Character Creation OOC
DM, for the demi-human variants that get cleric spells, are their XP advancement tables the same as the standard version?

Re: Character Creation OOC
My initial rolls were
Strength14
Intelligence12
Wisdom11
Dexterity15
Constitution12
Charisma9

Not high enough to make a Mystic, but I'll have a pretty good fighter-type. Since someone's already taken the human fighter, I'll make mine a Dwarf. I'll drop the Intelligence and Wisdom down a bit to raise Strength, giving me:

Strength16
Intelligence10
Wisdom9
Dexterity15
Constitution12
Charisma9

And change my character name to Torvek?

Re: Character Creation OOC
We do already have a dwarf as well...but that doesn't mean you couldn't do one also.
