Elan:
I removed them from the other planes and emboldened them as group.

I feel emboldened.

Re: Plane Overview & Discussion

So unless there are any more changes, I will create a separate group in this game for party Baator soon.

Hope the other players can agree on their individual groups as well then.

Re: Plane Overview & Discussion

It looks like Smyth, Seti, and Pebble have decent overlap too. You two want to join up with me?

Re: Plane Overview & Discussion

Yes please :) I am down for any of the planes either of you listed (Water might be tricky but we could make it work).

I'll join the three of you in whatever plane you prefer. That makes four.

I somehow fell off the listing, but I'm up for any Plane, so toss me wherever the winds may blow.

Re: Plane Overview & Discussion

Nice, looks like we are getting somewhere! I will start updating the first post with the different locations, starting with the planes that have been selected as the potential first ones to be visited.

Smyth, Pebble, Seti, Dana, are you fine with the Beastlands as your first plane as well?

Re: Plane Overview & Discussion

Well, I'm not sure if Shadow, Jastero, Mekkal and E1-THA might be a good combination, seems some conflicting alignments there for this last group...

Also, I will ask both Zyre and Lady Chanterelle what their preferences are.

You should just make Mordenkainen pick the teams :P he has a higher Int score than we do :)

Sure does, but where is the fun in that? :)

This way I hope that the characters of the group are actually wanting to work together with one another instead of just being 'ordered' to do so. And there is a better chance of chaotic results Mordenkainen would have never chosen himself ^^

Re: Plane Overview & Discussion

It looks like two people aren't on the list at all.

And if we just drop the 'any' plane people in with Shadow and go to whichever plane is first priority of the three we are good to go.

Jastero comes from a world where the alignments are open to interpretation.  No particular race has to be a specific alignment, and there is more gray area within each.  Plus, he has something else n common with the warforged, which were invented in Eberron.
Plus, there can be no Shadow without Light, and no Light without Darkness.
Mekkal, I am good with that.  Strange bedfellows, as they used to say.

Re: Plane Overview & Discussion

Something to keep in mind is that E1-THA is from Ravnica; a technologically advanced world compared to other realms out there.  While Jastero might mistake her for an Eberron Wargorged, she's not actually one - in her own setting, she'd be considered an "Artifact Creature".

As for her alignment, E1-THA is Lawful Evil but will basically function as Lawful Neutral for the most part.  She's evil because her creator is evil, and since her only goal is to fulfill the plans he's set in motion for her to address, she'll use any means available to her with absolutely no consideration for ethics or morals as a result.  Those elements would only factor in if they had some impact on the efficacy of her actions.  But she's not at all sinister and wouldn't go out of her way to take an intentionally harmful course simply for the sake of being evil.  She's just a walking case of computational "the ends justify the means".

Does that make you more of the Phyrexian subtype?

Re: Plane Overview & Discussion

Nah, E1-THA's creator is more of an "affably evil mad scientist who wants TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD!" type and less than a "violently purge the weak via omnicidal eugenics" type.  Strictly speaking, E1-THA would be considered an abomination by Phyrexian standards since she was made by a mortal.

Re: Plane Overview & Discussion

Sorry guys, work revved up big time this week (8 hours of training followed by four more hours of working @___@  ). I've barely had a chance to look at the character sheet much less what's been going on here.

Chanterelle is perfectly capable of keeping this lot in line however.  And she'd put aside her personal preference for mission locale in favor of group coherence.  Any of Shadow's choices looks fine.  I'd favor Limbo/Pandemonium though.

Looking at the list, the leftovers seem like a decent party...a little squishy, but we can deal with that.

In reply to Siveril Balberos (msg # 53):

Basically my thought too, yeah.  Her creator is a really small-time Saturday Morning Cartoon villain, all things considered, but that's half the fun.  :3

Re: Plane Overview & Discussion

Sry for the delay, havn't had to make a high lvl char in 5e yet, so had to go over my options. Zyre would def want to venture to Limbo in the hopes of seeing the Warriors rest. Other than that, Archon would be of interest, but hes open to going where hes needed.

I highly recommend using More Purple More Better's free pdf character sheet for building a character from scratch, particularly higher level ones. It won't have a lot of the newer options (they are coming) but you can edit all the text fields or just use it as a basic skeleton before transferring your sheet to an RPoL compatible text format. It's super powerful and reasonably intuitive.

Here is a linky for those interested: https://www.flapkan.com/#download

Re: Plane Overview & Discussion

Alright, then we group all other characters together in the last group and hope that this works out. Seeing as Shadow really wants to go to the Shadowfell above all others and most of the players seem to be fine with any choice, really, we will start there unless other decisions will be made over the next few days.

This brings us to the following constellations:
