Another thing I'd like to discuss is limitations.

We are purposefully trying to make this hard, despite being level 20, so what kind of things do you guys want to make off limits for your characters?

I saw the racial +1 to all stats and we able to putting 15 for a grand total of sweet 16.

It was a tease!

LOL

Do you need to make this hard? I mean, I am playing a soulborn, a class that some people say it is worst than fighter 20. My idea of providing some battlefield control with trips is gone the moment I have such a few point buy. I am focusing in hitting as hard as I can instead.

My soulborn is Tier 5. The hexblade is Tier 4. The ranger is Tier 4 too. The Divine Mind is Tier 5.

I think that as long as we don't pick anything unnofficial we are good to go. This means books + WotC's website + Dragon Magazine.


What do you think of playing a little with the alingments?

Soulborn: LE
Hexblade: CE
Divine Mind: TN
Ranger: (I don't know)
Paladin of freedom: CG
Sohei: LG

The extremes putting differences aside and working together to destroy something very dangerous to everyone.

Once we have the game rules fully fleshed out Iíll advertise for two more, to see if we can get the paladin and sohei.

Also, Iíll only make it as much a challenge as you want. If you just wanna be overpowered and wreck everything we throw at you thatís fine with me, though youíll probably get bored without a challenge.

Our aim is to have the six players:
One Hexblade
One Ranger
One Paladin
One Soulborn
One Divine Mind
One Sohei

But if they can't be got... then it will be the four of us.

Ok, we have to optimize the hell of our characters to survive. Not only as characters, but also as a group.

The idea was:
Hexblade: Full skills points to Bluff, Diplomacy, Intimidate and maybe Perform and Use Magic Device. Debuffing and sneak attack damage with Improved Feint + the feat that gives me the martial stance of sneak attack.

Divine Mind: Archer with buffing through auras. Knowledge Psionic Checks, Autohypnosis and Psicraft checks.

Ranger: Arcane spells with sword of the Arcane Order. Skillmonkey with the trapfinding ACF. Basically an intelligent guy. Maybe a little of Knowledges and Spellcraft.

Soulborn: Smiting as hard as he can?

As the soulborn said, I think it will be easy to challenge our characters. Just throw us a sorcerer or wizard of the same level. Still... we may have a few surprises. I bet that noone dared to experiment with only these classes. Are our classes that low tier? Only one way to find out and maybe our GM will have to throw us something much worse than just a 15 level wizard. :D


The reason we wanted a 28 point buy and a 16 limit is to have full profit for our level increases and our items.

For exmaple:
15 Base + 5 levels + 5 inherent + 6 enhancement = 31 --> +10 modifier (The same modifier if we got a 30 in the stat)
16 Base + 5 levels + 5 inherent + 6 enhancement = 32 --> +11 modifier

I'm just here as a rules advisor to our Professor, but to add context to what Mercy is saying:

with standard Wealth by Level of 760k a +5 inherent bonus and +6 enhancement is going to eat up about 1/4 of their starting wealth (173,500 gp) for a Manual/Tome + Stat boost item.

I would say as well that 28 pts was "average" for 3.5 point buy games. 25 is "below average" and 32 is "above average".
Most even array with 28: 16/14/14/10/10/10
Dump one stat          : 16/14/14/12/10/8
Dump two stats         : 16/14/14/14/8/8

If the Professor does want to keep the max 15 and 27 point buy, maybe they will allow spending a bit more starting coin and allow +6 inherent bonus tome/manuals for 165,000?

I am your benevolent DM.

When my people humble themselves and ask of me, I shall not ignore their pleas.

I am gracious.

I will allow it.

You'll all have to thank TA, he's the guy who knows the DND rules and what's gonna work, I just like to tell stories.

Re: Character Creation Details/Discussion
The Ranger is right... Soulborn don't need gods, only their ideals. In fact, I have read that the don't follow gods as much as they walk at their side, so to speak.

This Soulborn will fight fight for a god's cause because it is lawful and evil.

According to Faith of Eberron I only have two choices: The Blood of Vol and the Lord of Blades. However, they are not gods per se, barely churches... unless somehow Erandis have achieved apotheosis.

The Soulborn will think that Erandis Vol has a right to rule and exist. He will also like the fact that she is evil thanks to the all the hate she has received all her life and unlife. So, her existence is now a punishment to the world. It is what they deserve.

Re: Character Creation Details/Discussion
I was assuming Forgotten Realms and trying to nail down deity.

I am thinking Tyr (for Justice), Ilmater (For endurance and perseverance), or Lathander (self-perfection and athletics).  Opinions welcome

Guys. We will do starting equipment/shopping as a turn based mini-game, so everyone knows what everyone will have. Unless for some reason you want an item to be secret. So for now just make notes of what you want for equipment.

You mean there will be a limited amount of each item for all of us? Like not everyone will be able to buy a +6 enhancement item to STR?

Totally a joke, this is kinda fun to make something I never would have chosen.
