Re: To-Do List
Delia:
We can always change it once we have a significant accomplishment to base it.


Or if we need to escape the repercussions of an epic failure or transgression. :P

I cannot think of anything I like, and I don't dislike The Fell Company.

I wonder if The Red Bears will just make people ask, "Why?"  But unless I come up with something more concrete (unlikely), I bow to the will of the majority.

Re: To-Do List
Heebie's pic is coming. I am just learning how to draw. Picked up a wacom tablet. I was inspired to do more than a stick figure and now I have found a new hobby.

I am sure the group name will reveal itself in time.  Fell Company was just a starting point. Maybe the group is local to the area and have done some small jobs already together.

Kids playing dnd in a basement somewhere would most definitely give their group a name. It was what we used to do. Though I never had a basement.

What? We have someone who can actually draw? I will have to remove you from the game immediately!

Steady on.  I am just a 13 yr old in a basement with a computer, tablet,  digital pen,  software program and youtube resources. ;p

Are we close to a start? G hasn't checked in for a bit.

Re: To-Do List
It does look like we may need a drop dead date for E and G to respond by.

Unless the DM needs more prep time on his side to prepare for the Fell Company of Modern Art!

Re: To-Do List
No, I'm all ready to get going. However, I would ideally like to get at least one more player, and I've sent out a couple of new invites today to those that expressed an interest previously. However, whatever happens, we will start no later than this coming weekend.

(Incidentally, I was sure you were going to iterate towards "The Fell-owship", but I guess that's been done before ...)

Groan. Very good. Fellowship didn't occur to me.  Which is unusual because it is an obvious dad joke that I should have got. I am very disappointed in myself.

Re: To-Do List
DM, I just realised I didn't add Thieves Tools to Heebie's gear. Duh! I have made adjustments to character sheet: removed hooded lantern and replaced with torches so he can afford the Tools.

OK, that's fine.

Character H
Looks like we have a late arrival incoming ...

Character H's ability scores (3d6 in order using the Dice Roller):

Strength: 12
Intelligence: 13
Wisdom: 8
Dexterity: 14
Constitution: 14
Charisma: 9

Please let me have details of your character's name, race and class (only) initially. This will allow me to set up your character sheet, which I will then share with you so you can complete the rest of the details.

Haha owned!!  The dice roller had no idea it was me.  Always pleased to get one over on it.

Saba (Sabastian) - Half-Elf -  Mage/thief - Male in case it wasn't obvious.

Haha - Check out this old dog with his new trick.


Saba - I was trying for the knavish prankster.



The character sheet is done so I'm good to go bossman DM.  Feel free to pull me up on where I might have gone wrong.

Hey I won that portrait fair and square in a crooked game of dice.  I suppose if I had the coin to pay for a half decent sketch it wouldn’t look so goblin like.

Saba, take a look at the Rumors thread and the directions in the first post in the thread.

Then add a rumor of your own.

Saba
Saba's sheet is mostly fine.

I think you were a bit over-optimistic with your hit points. I believe they should be 5 (4 for an MU + 6 for a thief, divided by 2).

Also if you could complete the weapons section, that will be useful reference for damage, range, etc.

Finally, you should add your material components for your spells to your inventory. Other players have already come up with the components for Dancing Lights (1-4 marbles), Read Magic (a piece of rune-inscripted parchment) and Sleep (a pinch of sand) - you'll find all of these listed under the Game Wiki. Please can you come up with a component for Message.

Other than that, I'll furnish you with a rumour and, as Delia says, you should come up with one of your own.

Then we're good to go and I'll introduce you to the action.

Re: Saba
Ummm yeah the character sheet was prepopulated with 6/6 and I just added them together and put in 12 without thinking much harder on it.  5 it is. :o)    So much for keeping the MU side of things a secret, not that I'm overly concerned.  I'm obviously only a 1st level thief so completely hopeless at disguise.

Weapon damage figures done.

I don't see the 'game wiki' for the spell components, but I thought a live (or dead) moth for message would fit in nicely since it was good enough for Gandalf.

In reply to Saba (msg # 84):

Hmmm ... not sure why you can't see the link to "Game Wiki" - it's at the top right of my RPoL window.

Does this direct link work: http://wiki.rpol.net/?id=71156

Re: Saba
Oh, apologies for the 'Game Wiki' a rookie mistake.  I've seen it many thousands of times without seeing it.  At this early stage in the game, I will reframe from doing any self-flagellation Dobby-style.  There will be plenty of other times this can be enjoyed after all.
