Out of Character (OOC):
This thread is to discuss all other game related stuff that is not In Character (IC).

I'm currently looking at the following two adventure locales, though I'm open to suggestions.

Dragon's Den: A wilderness adventure up a mountainside, with the final destination of a dragon's lair long thought to be dead. Based on the map from UK5: Eye of the Serpent. Characters will be members of an Adventurer's Guild sent to explore the valley and discover what treasures remain in the lair of the serpent.

Caverns of the Unknown: A delve into a long forgotten cavern system of unknown size. Characters will be members of an expedition sent to explore the newly discovered caves.

Whichever location is selected, both will be for parties of levels 2-5 using AD&D (with houserules) ruleset.

Re: Out of Character (OOC):
Both sounds very interesting, but the second one sounds slightly more intriging.

Re: Out of Character (OOC):
With my rolls, I'm good for every basic classes and maybe one or two more advanced class. I'll think about it and work out something later.

Re: Out of Character (OOC):
Nice. Plus with 10k xp to boot that will get you a solid 4th level character

Re: Out of Character (OOC):
I've rolled abilities, and it's a solid field of numbers. I'm equally happy with either a cleric or a thief. I'd rather play a cleric than play in a party without a cleric. Please let me know if either of you have preferences for classes, and I'll work around you to make a complementary and enjoyable character.

DM, what guidelines do you have for selecting magic items? I'm thinking of a simple armor +1 or weapon +1(depending on class), along with either a potion or low-level scroll.

Re: Out of Character (OOC):
Well looking at your scores (Player3) you might consider the PHB bard variant. You'd be 3rd level with 3d6 HP, fight as a cleric, have 3 1st level druid spells, and operate as a 1st level thief.

A druid could be an option as well, you would also start out at 3rd level but have access to 2nd and 3rd level spells.

Well, the player(s) tells the DM the magic option they want; 1 permanent and 1 single use OR 3 single use items in your case. The player(s) may also tell the DM what sort of magic items they are looking for (e.g. I'd like some form of magical protection, preferably armor, and a scroll). The DM will then provide you with magic items.

Re: Out of Character (OOC):
Yeah I had the magic item question as well so I'm glad that got answered. I do have some other questions.

1->The standard rules indicate that multi-class characters would receive bonus spells for qualifying stat scores. Reading your notes seems to imply that multi-class would not. Is that true? If so, I'd humbly lobby for the standard rules version since multi class characters are already taking a hit on xp and hit points and you have an additional boon for humans.

2->Do magically enhanced stats count as qualifying for demi-human levels? So, for example, if I have a 17 in a stat and I get a +1 magic item that brings it to 18, can I then advance to the higher max level?

3->Warlock/Templar fighter types can cast scrolls of magic user/cleric type. Can they also use magic items from those classes?

4->When we roll stats can we assign the numbers to the stat we wish or are the stats in fixed order?

5->If we roll an 18 stat and have a +1 due to racial bonus can we add that 'extra' point to another stat or is it just lost?

Thanks for all your work on this. Really looks like to be shaping up to be a great game.

Re: Out of Character (OOC):
With the exception of the first question, the others have been answered in the Q&A thread.

The short answers are No, No, scrolls only, lost.

Player Two, do you have an inclination for a class at this point?

Re: Out of Character (OOC):
I been considering a number of choices but the prevailing one at the moment is Elven cleric/magic-user. Having an arcane user in the party would also probably be helpful.

Re: Out of Character (OOC):
Don't feel the need to fill all those roles on your own, unless you want to. I expect we'll get some more players on board.

I'm not interested on the bard or druid options. If P2 goes with C/MU, I'll go with a thief. If P2 does not fill a cleric role, I'll take it. Either way is fine with me.

Re: Out of Character (OOC):
I'll be posting the Players Wanted ad later today. Remember, play what you want!, don't worry so much about filling roles. And if you want a party full of cleric types, then so be it. :)

Re: Out of Character (OOC):
For the longest while our tabletop ad&d game had no cleric, no thief and a low kevel fighter/magic-user. We did a lot of resting and fighting at half hp...but it was d'un too.

Re: Out of Character (OOC):
By all means..*please* take cleric role. As multi-class I'm going to be 2nd or 3rd to any single class character...and I'm ok with that. I'll only step in if the main can't handle the position for some reason. In the perhaps uncommon but not impossible event of the main cleric being disabled, put to sleep, or knocked silly and someone needs urgent healing then I'll step in. Depending on what faith/deity you chose I may even be your acolyte! :)

Re: Out of Character (OOC):
If you do 2 clerics, I might go templar or something along that line for a temple guard, giving us a tie together and a bit of backstory.

Re: Out of Character (OOC):
Ok. I'll go elven fighter/magic user. I'd do F/MU/CL but then I'd probably never make next level lol. So you got full reins on cleric my friend.

Re: Out of Character (OOC):
I've added another player (no type of concept described) and have several more RTJs to go through. A lot of interest in fighters (or rather warriors) and thieves.

Re: Out of Character (OOC):
Well the fighter options (and others) are pretty neat. I could easily enjoy playing a 1/2 dozen different characters(or more). Hopefully we'll have some solid meat shields as my character will most likely be a cheerleader..er I meant range support. :)

Re: Out of Character (OOC):
Hello all. Glad to be in the game.

I will be rolling my stats shortly. Looks like so far we have a Fighter, a F/MU and a cleric?
