    Keep on the Shadowfell (OOC)

    Now that 4 e is out, would anyone be interested in a bit of a playtest using KotS? My group is split over 4e and Id like to kick the tires,so to speak, of the new game. So I lose my lurker status (all the 3e vs 4e debate made me want to stay on the sidelines )

    I'd like 5 players who havent if possible read the adventure. I want heroes, dark is ok but no evil please. Core races and classes please. Id also like roleplayers. The adventure has its share of combat, and I really want to try out the system,but let's not leave Rping out please.

    I'm going to leave the world background deliberately vague. The "points of light" settings seems to have some common themes which we'll follow, I'll let the players help flesh out things, through background and game actions, if our games flourishes into something of a campaign. So hopefully, the players will help set the canon of our world.

    I'm an old grognard, so Id like everyone to roll their scores at Invisible castle.We'll use invisible castle for our in game rolls, so just make an account there for our game. Pick a text color, whip up a background; well I'm sure most of you know what to do.

    As I say I'm an old player-I got my start with the old Keep on the Borderlands/Basic box set in the early 80's. My favorite early teen possession was the Githyanki cover Fiend Folio. Im married have two children and a job that keeps me from face to face games more than I want.

    If you are interested, post an idea or character. Thanks!

    I'm interested. Not sure I like the idea of random scores, since 4e is so much about equality and everything in char-gen is fixed, but oh well.

    I got this idea of a circus acrobat (Rogue).

    For some reason I couldn't rearrange the stats? But I'll use those 6 scores and rearrange them in the character creation process, since a Rogue with 10 Dex is not possible in 4e since 99% of their power is dependent of dexterity.

    Well, I found that when you click roll scores and then get those 6 scores, you can click continue only if you have not rearranged the scores. Then you'll get to the same screen again, just this time you can use Save. After using Save, you'll get a link that you can post in this place.

    Since I've taken over running this game, here's the IC thread.

    Spoiler:


    Alternatively, just roll 6 X 4d6.takeHighest(3) from the 'roll dice' section rather than 'roll stats'.

    That's what I did; stats (4d6.takeHighest(3)=10, 4d6.takeHighest(3)=15, 4d6.takeHighest(3)=15, 4d6.takeHighest(3)=13, 4d6.takeHighest(3)=13, 4d6.takeHighest(3)=12) .

    Baern Ironhand is a big, noisy dwarf almost 5 foot tall. He's pretty young for dwarven standard, 30 years old, and his brown beard still is not long as he would like. Baern left his clan in search for glory, which is generally well-accepted among dwarves, but Baern was born in the only family of his clan that displayed a long-standing clerical tradition. He decided that he wasn't cut for the life of a priest many years ago already, and now he has finally left his home to fight foes more worthy than the goblins encountered during his patrols. He is broke, though, and looking for a job. And for a few trustworthy companions too, actually, since Baern can't live without a good mug of ale in a tavern surrounded by the loud laughters of friendly people.

    Too classic.

    Curious to see how your game develops.

    I have some maps and tokens (I use maptools) for my own game here on EnWorld if it helps...

    FWIW, you can make halfway decent grids in Excel by tinkering with field widths until you've got square cells. That's what I did for my Star Wars game.
