Just in case there's anything that needs to be discussed out of character.

For character creation: this is from the Proposal thread
quote:
Mechanics wise i'm thinking 3rd level, 30 point buy

Starting wealth as out of DMG for 3rd level? If I'm a prisoner would I have any items? Should I bother with selecting a magic item or whatever that wealth level could afford?

For books I'm going to focus on Serpent Kingdoms, FRCS, PGtF, & XPH. Are there any of those that you want me to avoid? He'll be pretty straight forward once I settle on Psion vs Psychic warrior, more starting feats and gear and such from these.

Yeah 2700 gold pieces sounds about right. You can pick equipment. While you don't start out with any of it, it will be returned to you at some point.

I wasn't going to ban any books straight out, except I guess the book of nine swords, but just look over the character when it's done. Just don't do anything crazy and it's fine.

lol, ok. One thing I've found in D&D, especially in the broad spectrum of PBP is that one person's "not crazy" is another person's "min/maxing/power gaming"!

I haven't really dug into looking at actual build yet. I don't think I'll try for anything crazy, and hopefully you agree when you see it! :)

We'll see when it's there. Think there's only so much you can do at level 3 anyway

Iím also going to give you 4+2 extra skill points you can divide up between knowledge religion, geography, local, and nobility

And 4+2 skill points to put into any number of craft skills.

This will represent your Ďregularí life/job

ok, that's cool. Pretty sure he's going to be a Psion (Kineticist). He'll have the Overchannel feat. I'm going for that visual of the psionic character who gets' nosebleeds when he pushes himself when he uses power, a la Firestarter.

I think I'm mostly done with the sheet. give it a look and let me know what you think of what is on there.

I have some more gp to spend (about 800 or so) but other than that, I think most stuff is there and I can probably get started IC when you give me the say so.

You can go ahead and start, if we need anything changed or filled in background wise we can do it on the fly.

A few crunch questions for you before I make my first post:
  1. Have I been able to replenish power points in this prison? I.e. is the rest comfortable enough to meditate, etc?
  2. Am I still in contact with my psicrystal (range 1 mile)?
  3. Is the crystal in a back or can it see & hear surroundings? it understands all the languages I do
  4. what is the rough layout of the prison as I know it/have seen it? 5' corridor with cells lining one side? both sides? how long?
  5. is there a guard station at the end of it where the two Abominations "sit" through their shift? Any patterns in their guarding? I.e., do they both patrol together or one at a time?
  6. the walls are "thick stone" is the all the walls but the one with the door? does it include the one with the door? What is the door made of? How solid/brittle?

Whew, I think that is my initial set of questions!

OOC:
1: It's pretty uncomfortable, but eventually you probably could have found a time/position to sleep and/or meditate.

2: You saw your piscrystal and other magical gear being forced into a metal box, the moment it closed. You lost contact with it. It's likely that there's some kind of magic on it to block your connection.

3: As long as it's in said box, you won't be able to access it.

4: The part of the prison you're in is not too big, there's 5 jail cells on each side, with a central passage between them. Not sure how long that would be, but say 20 ft long. and 12 ft wide.

5/6: The door is made from somewhat rotten wood, and doesn't look very sturdy at all. There is indeed a guard station right behind the door. Where these abominations seem to spend most of their time. But they peer into the cells a lot, and have surprisingly good hearing. You never really see them leave, and there's no real pattern to any of their behavior. Except when food is brought, when one of them will pass food through the bars, and the other stands guard with his spear. The walls are indeed all around and seem quite sturdy still, despite the otherwise miserable state of the place.



Just as an OOC hint, you don't necessarily need to escape. Stuff will happen to get things going regardless. I just wanted to give you a chance to show your characters reaction to being in this current state of imprisonment.

In reply to Ilsensine (msg # 14):

Hah! ok.

I was thinking of how to use control sound to dampen noise and then use Sonic energy missles or rays to batter apart my door, then try to use Psionic Charm on the Yuan-ti to get my stuff back. But if things are going to happen naturally then I'll just post IC and react to the situation as it unfolds.
