Re: Scenario (Dungeons & Dragons)
Greg nods too.
Yeah, I'd love to get some stuff like that, either dragons or gargoyles, but I just don't have the room at my apartment.  Which antiques place?  I might stop by myself, sometime.  Heck, there might be something there to get for the comics store, not that we're getting into gaming stuff.

"Uhh, I don't know it's name. The one down at the mall with the big glass windows with all the wierd statues and crap. I go there semi-often being the nerd I am" He looks partially ashamed.

OOC: Do I detect the seeds for more stories in this line of reality?

"I've been in there a couple of times." Cassander added.  "I didn't see anything that really struck my fancy though.  Maybe if I needed a few miniature figures for a game, there might be something.  So you work at the comic store Greg?  I thought you looked familiar."

Re: Scenario (Dungeons
In reply to Cassander Miraz (msg #43):

Yes, I work down at Boston Comics, down on Allston Street.  They can only afford to hire me part time so far, but the owner is always scheming to come up with ways to improve business.
Greg grins.
We're expanding into gaming as well as comics, so any ideas that anyone has on what kind of games they'd like to see would be great.   I was actually thinking about opening up an area for nightly games as well, but the space is just too small.


I'll have to check out the place in the mall, though.

Re: Scenario (Dungeons
Finishing with his preperations and flipping his sinister 'critical die' onto its namesake 20, Christopher absentmindedly flips a coin before putting it down on the table.

He then clears his throat and waits for the table chatter to die down a little.

"Okay then," he says "Is everyone ready? We'll go round the table and everyone can everyone can introduce their characters"


OOC: I'll leave the table order up to you guys. It's probably easiest to just post when you have the chance and we'll assume you were next in line.

Re: Scenario (Dungeons
Greg gets out a character sheet.
This is a character that I've been working on all day.  Um, when I should have been working, unfortunately.  Still, I'm kinda digging the concept.  Her name is Aliana Farwalker, an elven cleric of Fharlanghn, the God of Travel.
Basically, she's a priestess that is practically a professional tourist.  Fharlanghn's main tenents are that travel broadens the mind and cleanses the soul, and she's the poster child for her faith.  She has severe wanderlust, and wants to see and do everything in the world.  She wants to map everything and perhaps write a travel guide so others can benefit from her travels without having to endure the dangers themselves.  To her, a comprehensive travel guide to the world would be like a bible.
 


He hands the character sheet over to Chris for approval.

I've taken the liberty of outfitting her and choosing her skills.  (ahem) Basically, I didn't get much work done at the store today, but when my gaming muse is on me, I usually can't think about much else.  He chuckles a bit.

She has a lot of outdoorsy skills, and she can track like a ranger.  She's not great at it, since clerics don't get a lot of skills, but she has good intelligence, so that gave me extra skill points so that I didn't have to take a level in ranger or bard just for the skills.  I actually rolled very well for her stats.  She's not as charismatic or as wise as a cleric probably should be, but I'm putting that down as part of the character.  She's not intending to be a cleric that proselytizes others.  To her, the guide book she plans to write will be her greatest sermon.  The rest of her stats were pretty good, she's pretty strong (kind of a wiry strength, being an elf maiden, and all), plus I maxed out on dexterity.  I also gave her starting fifth level money, and outfitted her with some magic stuff.  Nothing too exciting.  A fancy composite longbow, masterwork chainshirt and longsword, Healing belt, Haversack of holding, and two rings, Feather Falling and Sustenance.  I've got some cheap potions too, but nothing too exciting.

Greg speaks with great enthusiasm for the character.  His gamer geekiness is plainly obvious to the room.

One of her supeficial goals it to get something magical with which to fly.  I've always been a little obsessed with flight in all my characters, so I've given her the same longing to soar in the sky.   It's one of the great appeals of Fharlanghn; one of his Travel Domain spells is fly. 

He looks at Chris, almost like a kid trying out for the little league team.

So, will she work for your game?

Re: Scenario (Dungeons
Dan stood up first. God help us.

He struck his hand out and smirked in his face with a crazy expression. "My character... is the greatest musician in the world. His talents are knwn far and wide and he has an ego the size of a small continent. His very clothes suggest he should be pimpin' instead of adventuring, with his enormous purple hat with enormous twin feathers and cane-like walking stick that hides his weapons. He may not be the best fighter, but he's certainly not predictable. Ladies and Gentlemen, this man is Kenjinn J Rycov, and he HATES BABIES!!" He says in a very dramatic tone, almost yelling near the end.

Re: Scenario (Dungeons
Greg snorts with laughter, then adopts a serious, scandalized look.
How can you hate babies!?!?!?    They're so sweet.... and tasty.

Seriously, good character.  If that's a bard, they can be very useful and fun, although we're probably not going to be sneaking into any goblin camps any time soon, with that outfit.

John laughed "Damn man. And I thought I went with a random character. I actually think this tops my old, illiterate, half-orc wizard." he said has he finally was able to catch his breath.

Illiterate wizard?  What, does his spell book made of just pretty pictures?

And Dan is basically the Pied Piper of Hamlin, I guess.

He chuckles at the image.

Re: Scenario (Dungeons
John chuckled "He'd have to sound it out. He'd miscast so much he'd evenually get bored and start hitting the oppenent with his battleaxe/staff... he took his first level in barbarian... Well I didn't do something that bad this time, so who's next?" he asked.

Re: Scenario (Dungeons
Greg smiled.  The barbarian/wizard should be fun. I can see it now: "Well, wizard, I'm immune to all magic, so that means you're helpless before my....OW!!  OW!! Stop hitting me!!  OW!!  OK, ok, I give up!!!"

Re: Scenario (Dungeons
John grinned "Something like that, my old GM didn't even know how to counter that, so he'd just throw down like normal then I'd end up bashing a warrior's head in with a critical." he leaned back with his hands behind his head. "Good times." he said as he recalled his zany antics of years past.

Re: Scenario (Dungeons
Greg nodded, in full gamer nostalgia mode, now.
Yes, it didn't work too well for a friend of mine and me, though.  He had a Barbarian/Sorcerer and I had a Monk/wizard, with one or two levels in the warrior class and the rest in caster.  The problem was, we kept forgetting that we were primarily casters and would keep rushing into melee, but we weren't strong enough warriors to do it.  It ended up getting both of us killed.
He chuckled.
Still, you know the old sayings "That which kills you, makes you smarter, and that which does not kill you....missed.

Re: Scenario (Dungeons
John chuckled and shook his head "Nah, this time I decided to do something more sane this time around." He flips his character sheet over and spins it around so the others could see it.

The first thing they would probally notice was the nicely drawn picture of a Female elf in the portrait box
<OOC: will edit in a picture if my photobucket will stop screwing up, if it doesn't hopefully I can post it when we actually change. And no the picture I'm going to put up is not mine, but for the sake of his background, John can.>

The second thing was the stats and feats, of course he had high dex and wisdom, low strength and constitution, you know, normal ranger stats. But his feats were all melee based.

Re: Scenario (Dungeons
Greg chuckles a bit.
Heh.  I guess "elf maiden" is a popular choice this season.  My cleric and your ranger can tell dirty jokes in Elven.  She's kind of the opposite of your wizard character.  Aliana is a nerdy scholar and a serious language geek.

Smiling and laughing along, Chris quickly glances over the characters before handing them back.

He gestures for Cassander and Sarah to introduce their own characters.

Re: Scenario (Dungeons
Cassander laughed again.  "Oh this is too funny.  I brought out my Elven Sorceress, so we've got three elves in the party.  I figured that I needed a change from my Paladin and I've never really played a magic-user before so it'll be interesting.  Although now I'm starting to think that there was some sort of invisible peer pressure that I was succumbing to."

Re: Scenario (Dungeons
Greg laughs.
And here I thought that maybe everyone would discourage me from playing my elven priestess.  I didn't realize that it would be the average character race.

He shakes his head.
I'm glad that you guys are more open to unusual character concepts.  I had a DM once who refused to let anyone play a different gendered character.  He said that men are fundamentally incapable of playing female characters, so he disallowed it.   Granted, this is the same DM who claimed that the alignment Chaotic Neutral meant that the person was psychotic and couldn't control their actions, so I never really paid him a lot of attention.

Greg looks at Sarah.

The thief/acrobat sounds good too.  I've never had the talent to play rogues, it'll be interesting to see on in action.

Re: Scenario (Dungeons
"I played a chaotic neutral knight once! I ended up getting chased by a horde of zombies, lighting fire to a house I was supposed to evict someone from and getting tied up in the middle of town during an attack by both bandits and goblins because I got a bit carried away with my eariler killing spree. It was a fun game" He says nostalgically.

OOC: This is true
