Hey, hey everyone.  I'll be playing Finn the Mighty.

In another life, he might have been at home on a farm somewhere, but you know ... have sword, will travel.  He is strong like ox (and about as nimble).

Welcome everyone in so far!

I listed in the character creation all of the things that need to be in the character sheet.  You can use that as a guide, or Thorona has a nice sheet if they are okay with folks copying it.

Hi all, I'll be playing Ash the Apprentice Thief. He actually is nimble and reasonably healthy (for a thief) but he's also not so hot on the wisdom front and so weak willed anyone waving their hand in front of his eyes could probably hypnotise him without a spell.

Ash is your classic n'er do well who needs to find some gold quickly to pay off some large and unreasonable men after a streak of rotten luck in a gambling den recently.

I'm still trying to sift through the code and unlock its secrets so I can make a better sheet. There are some very nice ones on the Heaven thread that I'm still playing around with so I can figure out how they work.

Anyway, in the meantime, hello everyone! I'll be playing Thorona, an elderly acolyte who has decided in her waning years to take the battle to Chaos personally. Neither strong nor hale of body, nor particularly studious, she's nonetheless accumulated some simple wisdom through the hard trials of a long life of cloistered religious devotion.

The dice had it out for me this time, so I'm honestly unsure how long Thorona will be with us. But I'm up for the challenge. ^_^

Hello all.  My character's name is Benny.  He's a bit of a simpleton and their is a large scar underneath the hairline on the right side of his face near the temple.  He has flashes of insight that seem out of place and surprisingly  someone took the time to teach him to read.

He'll fight to protect those he likes.  He's dressed in plate mail and wields a Mace.  He abandoned his shield long ago to hold the Torch as he doesn't like the dark. A small charm has been welded to the top of his gauntlet.

You should be able to hold a torch in your shield hand. You could in 'real life'.


Also, Hi! I am playing, Falco Mugwort, the uncouth and not very bright fighter.

"It is important to remember which characters are carrying light sources.  A character could not, for example, carry a lit torch, a drawn sword, and a shield at the same time. (p. B21)"

This seems like a strange rule. You could in real life, as mentioned.

I guess you could toss the torch on the ground at the first sign of trouble and draw your weapon. Still seems strange to me.

My interpretation is that you can carry the torch in your shield hand but can't then properly use the shield, and so it doesn't count.  Or you drop the torch and it goes out.  RAW, you can't use both.

Hmmm...strange, but okay. Not sure why a torch would go out if you toss it on the ground...unless it's wet where it lands, of course.

Ash dreams of one day having the gold to own a torch. After leather armour and Thieves'Tools his budget only stretched to a dagger and a sling. He's definitely hiding behind the guys in heavy armour!

We have five players right now.  I'm comfortable with that, does anyone feel like more are needed?

In reply to Dungeon Master (msg # 14):

I think having a magic-user might be helpful in future if we need a replacement but five is a pretty good number for a group.

You can always look for a Magic-user henchman.  The hard part is keeping them alive through level 1, a problem common with most classes but acute with M-U.

Please finish up the descriptions and character sheets, I'll put the introduction up shortly.

Five sounds ideal to me. I'm excited to see how we fare. I love the Dungeon Crawl Classics vibes I'm getting from our party, too.

Age: 43
Height: 5'6"
Weight: 195#
Skintone: Tanned
Gender: Male
Eyes: Grey
Hair: Dirty Brown w/Grey (usually matted & unkept)

Falco Mugwort is a lowborn man who rarely puts much thought beyond his short-term needs and wants. He is small-minded and uncouth. His face has clearly seen too many bar brawls. He has a pot gut and tends to stoop over. With his lack of interest in bathing and poor mannerisms, he's certainly not one to appeal to women that have any degree of standards.

He knows he's not very smart and tends to take the direct approach to solving problems unless he likes someone else's idea better. Superstitious, he doesn't like cats (possessed by witches) or dogs (possessed by demons) either one.

His clothing and gear is ragged and he clearly his puts his money elsewhere (beer and carousing).
