It's Mrs. Guardian of the Gate's birthday, so I'm spending time with her instead of online.

Re: OOC discussion
I would really like to accelerate the speed of this game. I realize that I have been at fault with that myself.

Also, if Violet fails the saving throw she's pretty much out of the game, since she'll fall unconscious and be recaptured. So we need a replacement character if that happens.

Re: OOC discussion
Guys, Violet and Jamin failed to escape. (sorry)

Ront and Eldeth are both available as replacements.

Basically, make a first-level male Orc fighter or barbarian and a female Shield Dwarf ranger (with some kind of underdark humanoids as her preferred enemy), and Ront and Eldeth will morph into those characters.

You cool with that? Later, you can come across people hiding in the caves, if you don't like those characters.

(I almost feel guilty about that, but that's the way the dice fell, and I did warn you.)

also, you're going to get a batch of XP pretty soon.

Re: OOC discussion
I was already playing Eldeth, so I'll just keep her and roll up a shield dwarf ranger, if that's cool with you Violet.

No worries I've a day off tomorrow so will roll up an orc fighter or barbarian.
Never played an orc so it will be good.

OK. The rules for PC Orcs (as opposed to half-orcs) are in Volo's Guide to Monsters, I think.

Ront has a little bit of biographical detail presupplied that I will give you by PM.

In reply to Key and Guardian of the Gate (msg # 78):

Theres nothing in volos about stat  modifiers for orcs. So am going to go with the half orc mods unless you have a different idea which is +2 str and +1 con.
I am going to go barbarian (path of the bezerker at l 2)


Ront     Orc     Barbarian

Age 30    Height 6.6   Weight 255lbs

Alignment CE

Personality Traits - I always appear as if I am going to kill everone around me.

Ideals - I get what I want from weaklings who fear me.

Bonds - I will seek and destroy those who murdered members of my tribe.

Flaws - I beleive in living to fight another day. I am ashamed of my cowdarice in a previous battle.

Speed 30ft

AC with no armour is 10 + DEX +CON for the barbarian abiilty unarmoured defence

AC 15 (Unarmoured)

HP 12 +CON    15 (but currently on 6 due to spider bite while he was an npc)

Str  17 +3
Dex 13 +2
Con 16 2
Int 6  -2
Wis 10  +0
Cha 12  +1

Saves
Str +5
Con +5

Background Soldier Infantry (he's an orc what else is he gunna be right)

Skills

Intimidation +4
Survival +2
Athletics +5

Proficiencies
Mid/Light armour and shields
Simple/Martial weapons


Weapons

Short Sword +5 hit +3 dam (1d6)
Daggar +5 hit +3 dam (1d4)


Darkvision 60ft

Unarmoured Defence

Your armour class is 10 plus your Dex and Con modifiers if you are NOT wearing armour. You can still use a sheild and gain this bonus.


Rage

Rage 2 x per day
Rage Bonus +2

In battle you fight with primal ferocity, On your turn you can enter a rage as a bonus action. While raging you gain the following benefits if you are NOT wearing HEAVY armour.

Advantage on STR checks and saving throws
When you mKe a melee weapon attack you gain a bounus to the damage roll than increases
as you gain barbarian levels. This is shown in the barbarian table.
You have resistance to bludgeoning, piercing and slashing damage.

Your rage lasts for 1 minute. Ends early if you are knocked unconsious, or if your turn ends and you have not attacked a hostile creature or taken damage since your last turn.
Once you have raged for the number of times in the barbarian table for your level you must take a long rest before you can rage again.






That should be it.



I see from the thread he/I took a short sword and a daggar, so have put those in.

Will the chain armour fit? Once I can get out of these manacles of course.



I guess youd better change my name to Ront

 Age. Ores reach adulthood at age 12 and live up to 50 years.

Speed.

Your base walking speed is 30 feet.

OOC As per the character info passed to me from Chris. Ront has a serious hatred for dwarves. Espicially right now following a recent incident in his big stoopid life.

As such Im going to be playing him that way. Obviously we are grown ups (well sort of) and im sure you will realise its just a character thing.

But it thought it only fair to give you the heads up before we get going with our new pc's.

If these characters dont last too long either, obviously things will change.

Hes a Stupid, Mean, Chaotic Evil, bullying murder machine dont ya know.

Class? She's a scout for Gauntylgrim, so presumably a Ranger with Underdark as her terrain. (and we have a Fighter in the form of Adahl'en).

Meaning Wisdom should be waaaay higher.

Oh, I just made her a fighter 'cause I thought that's what she was.  I'll look at making her a ranger.

OK, great.

She's a scout for Gauntylgrim (see the wiki), doing reconnaissance in the Underdark.

I've been spending the last two days weeding so we can plant veggies. Which is why I've been exhausted and not answered yet. Tomorrow I'll continue.

I'm really sorry about the vanishing act. I had an internet problem, then some personal stuff went down. It's cleared up now. Shall we go on?

Is everyone all still with me?

Guys, it's been another week. I'm so sorry.

I've been running around all over the city, mask in place, in roasting heat, and haven't had any energy.

I'll get back soon. Like tomorrow.
