I suppose the first thing that's going to come up is the minimum gold for 1st level. Keep in mind that this is in keeping with the adventure, that it asks the DM to ensure the characters are poor to begin with. It also helps provide the incentive for adventure :).

Feel free to ask questions :).

Also on the Deities and Demigods thread, if I'm missing a God you think should be included ask. If a god seems to be missing a domain and you think that domain is appropriate then ask (given all the sourcebooks it is not an exhaustive list by any means in that thread). Certain things such as the power level of a god as posted in that thread takes precedent over published material.

Is there anything we should know (IC) about the Temple? I know a little about it but I don't want to transfer any knowledge if our characters are oblivious.

You're characters would know little to nothing about the Temple of Elemental Evil. Though you might could learn some things about it from the people in Hommlett as you arrive and interact with the townsfolk :)

You will be coming from the direction of Verbobonc though and most likely came this way due to hearing about banditry along the roads with the Viscount having posted a notice for the need for adventurers to clear out the bandits.

23:37, Today: DM, on behalf of Albrecht Delmorn, rolled 6 using 1d20.  Knowledge Local.

Unfortunately that's about all Albrecht knows at this point.

Oh i didn't mention this in the Character Creation thread, but I was wanting to use fractional accounting for BAB and Saves since we are gestalt characters. This won't change anything for a 1st level character but will for future characters.

I'm not sure how familiar you guys are with the subject.

For those not familiar with fractional BAB/saves, at each level your character gains the fractional equivalent of the normal BAB/save progression for your classes.  So, a fighter would gain +1 BAB, a monk would gain +0.75 BAB and a wizard would gain +0.5 BAB.  For saves, there are two progressions, good and bad.  Good progressions gain +0.5 to the save at each level, and bad progressions gain +0.33 at each level, with good progressions getting +2.5 at 1st level.  An example is below. Note that, with gestalt, you would take the better progression in each category.


       Class                 BAB    Fort    Ref    Will
       Fighter/Rogue         +1     +2.5   +2.5   +0.33
       Fighter/Wizard        +1     +0.5   +0.33  +2.5
       Monk/Wizard           +0.75  +0.5   +0.5   +0.5

I've found with gestalts this is a better option.

So if I stay with Fighter/Dragon Shaman, I'll get +1 BAB, +.5 Fort and Will, and +.33 Ref every level? I've heard of fractional but never used it with Gestalts before.

Yes if you don't change classes that's right :)

Its actually easier to use Fractional in gestalt, and even normal games, due to making it that multi-classing doesn't ruin your characters BAB and Saves.

Well, to say hello, I have three concepts I put before the DM, but am willing to wait to see who else applies as what.

Current is Dwarf Fighter 1 // Incarnate 1

I also have Dragonborn Paladin 1 // Dragonfire Adept 1 and Elf Cleric 1 (Obad-Hai, Earth and Water Domains) // Hunter Druid 1 as possibles.  I would like to be useful in the dynamic, so if we are lacking in something, I can alter my concept to fill that role.

It's good to have you here, hopefully the others from the thread put in their rtjs soon. I'd like everyone there to get first shot before I put up an ad or something.

I'm usually able to post multiple times per day, depending on what times everyone else is active. I work 2nd shift so early afternoon and very late at night are my most active times normally. Also, I'm at EST if anyone is interested.

I work graveyards so I'm active at night and mornings mostly, I also live in the ET USA.

I put up some more info :). Hopefully the other two guys submit rtjs soon. If not by tomorrow I'll do an open call for players. I'm thinking only taking 4 total.

PST myself, work evenings to early mornings, so most of the time early mornings, sometimes early afternoons.

I am generally good for once a day once character creation is done.

Once a day is not a bad rate, especially with us in different time zones.
