Everybody come by and introduce yourselves. So far we have 3 fighters and a cleric, so I'm going to put a note in the RTJ that we're full up on fighters.

Hello, I will be playing Argon one of the mentioned fighters. He has come over from another game that went under, so thanks to our host for getting this up and running. Cheers.

Cymon.

Glad to have you, Argon. If we keep getting fighters knocking on our door, I may have to GMPC Raven so we have a thief. :-)

In terms of character creation, do you have a specific sheet you want us to use? Also, are we level 1?

Also (sorry), can we roll 6 scores for abilities and distribute them where we want, or have some kind of point buy system?

I hope to be putting up the character sheet tomorrow. I'll also post a link here to the rules for character creation but you can also find them in the rtj and the character creation thread.

Question for you guys:

I figure that party balance is far more important in the early editions than it is in 5th edition where there are so many half-casters. So I hesitate to bring in too many players who want to play one particular role. We began with two fighters right off the bat, and we have a cleric. But the next two people knocking on the door want to play a dwarf fighter and an elf fighter/magic-user. I'm especially torn because I like the dwarf's backstory a lot.

Since you're the ones who will have to do the dying if this goes sideways, I'll present you with an option. This is advisory, because I'm still the Dungeon Master, baby. :-)

The option is to take both fighters, and anyone else who comes in before the deadline (see below) and use the retainer rules to fill any glaring gaps, which at this point would just be a thief. The advantage is lots of combat power, the disadvantage is retainers, which I'm not a fan of. But retainers are old school, soooo...

The deadline: I would like to launch the game a week from Monday, on the 9th. I would turn off the new players sign on Wednesday or when we get to 6 players. As long as I put up the character sheets today or tomorrow, is there anyone who sees a problem being ready on the 9th?

 I might be tempted to make a new character that is a n MU. The problem with that, at low levels, they are rather boring, due to limited spells,and weakness in Melee. if there where more meat plot wise for a beginning Sorcerer, that would be different.

That shouldn't be necessary, Veskard. Both of the new players have said they will change classes.

BTW, I'm going to pull the trigger on this in the late evening on Monday, so everyone has until then to provide input. Tomorrow or Monday I'll have the character creation guidelines in the character creation thread. I think we'll start everyone at level 2.

My character has not two coppers two rub together. Former GM rolled crap on the money roll. Poor guy couldn't even afford a shield. How screwed is he?

Hey, guys -- I'm the dwarf fighter our GM mentioned. I'd like to play him, but I'm happy to turn in a sneaky human or halfling thief if that helps balance out the party.

Looking forward to the old school stuff either way.

Veskard, I was talking about Monday the 9th. We need some time to get the other characters finished.

Gillifian, if you could make a rogue that would be great. We'll then have two fighters, a cleric, a rogue and two elf F/M-U's.

Are we going to start at 2nd level ? I'll update Argon if we are.
