So you are on Mountain time, right?


Just so you know, I am on central time with access between noon and 10 pm [11 and 9 pm for you] If I do not respond, it means I am away from internet access and not ignoring the story. I noted some rolls made for Quinn in the other game while I was I that dreaded place "reality-land", so be patient. I do not have web access at home as I am too poor.

question about familiars

I usually do not have a familiar and forgot how limited the list was. how possible is it that he has a gray wolf for a familiar? What effect would he gain for such a critter as that?

Whenever you can post is fine. There isn't a set schedule. Form time to time, the games will slow down. Right now, I've had a lot of energy for the Crow God game and Bluffside game (on The Piazza). However, I'm sure there will be slowdowns again. Actually, I can guarantee it will happen at some point.

If you feel I'm putting pressure on you to post more, I can say to you that I'm not trying to be that way. Often, I just get excited when the story moves forward.

There is a feat called Improved Familiar.

I think a wolf might to be to large to be used as a familiar unless it is at a higher level. All the familiars listed under the feat are small sized. Maybe instead of wolf, a smaller lupine animal -- a fox perhaps.

BTW, what will be Shrough's final levels for wizard, fighter, and eldritch knight?

The Improved Familiar feat was originally presented in the DMG. It was reprinted in Complete Warrior (CW). In that book, it gives Worg as an option for 3rd-level arcane spellcasters, so I would say that Shrough could have a wolf as long as his caster level is 3rd-level or higher, and he has a BAB of +3 or more (as per the table in CW).

His eventual progression will be wizard for 2 more levels, then E. knight for ten, then probably round it off with more wizards at the way upper levels.

Okay, I'm confused.

Is he a 3rd-level wizard, 2nd-level fighter, 2nd-level eldritch knight currently? Or are you planning to take levels in eldritch knight after you've allocated 2 more levels of wizard to the PC for the start of the game? (Starting him as a 5th-level wizard, 2nd-level fighter.)

The last PC sheet you posted only show 5 levels (unless I missed something). You realize the starting level is 7th, right? I had said 5th before, but I raised it.

we are level 5 right? so he is a level 3 wizard, level 2 fighter. Now, if I am wrong and we are supposed to be making level 7 characters, then he needs 2 more levels of wizard before making eldritch knight

that is what I meant by plans for 2 more levels of wizard then eldritch knight, then 10 levels of that.

The PCs are supposed to be 7th level. I had stated 5th but I changed it to be 7th. Sorry, I assumed you'd seen that.

Ah, I missed that.

SO! He is gunna be a wizard 5, fighter 2. His next level will be the prc. This is an initiation time within the 'organization' . . . the order of the rose.

As for the improve familiar thing, is there any reason I can't get the ire wolf and just call it a really big gray wolf?

by the way, where in the dmg is that? I m looking in the vicinity of page 200 plus and see nothing. Could this be in dmg II ?

No worries. I thought maybe that was the reason.

No, I would say that's fine. Because the dire wolf is a 6 HD animal, we'll consider it a familiar for a 3rd-level arcane spellcaster (BAB +3). It should probably be for a least a 5th-level arcane spellcaster w/ at least +5 for BAB, but your PC wouldn't qualify for that.

As a level 7 character, he would be a wizard 5 with a bab of +4. He would be able to call it next level. . . . . I think you mentioned a fox? That sounds like it is do-able.

* * * * * EDIT * * * * *



As an after thought, If I had placed my fighter 2 to fighter 1, I can still become an eldritch Knight. Unfortunately, It still only leaves me with a +4 bab, so no wolf. still revisiting a fox as a familiar.

Combat Style (Two-Weapon Fighting)
Wild Empathy (Ex) (1d20+6 Level+1 Cha+2 Syn) A ranger can improve the attitude of an animal. This ability functions just like a Diplomacy check to improve the attitude of a person. The ranger rolls 1d20 and adds his ranger level and his Charisma modifier to determine the wild empathy check result. The typical domestic animal has a starting attitude of indifferent, while wild animals are usually unfriendly. To use wild empathy, the ranger and the animal must be able to study each other, which means that they must be within 30 feet of one another under normal visibility conditions. Generally, influencing an animal in this way takes 1 minute, but, as with influencing people, it might take more or less time. The ranger can also use this ability to influence a magical beast with an Intelligence score of 1 or 2, but he takes a -4 penalty on the check.
(Pending)Woodland Stride (Ex) Starting at 7th level, a ranger may move through any sort of undergrowth (such as natural thorns, briars, overgrown areas, and similar terrain) at his normal speed and without taking damage or suffering any other impairment. However, thorns, briars, and overgrown areas that are enchanted or magically manipulated to impede motion still affect him.
(Pending) Swift Tracker (Ex) Beginning at 8th level, a ranger can move at his normal speed while following tracks without taking the normal -5 penalty. He takes only a -10 penalty (instead of the normal -20) when moving at up to twice normal speed while tracking.
(Pending) Evasion (Ex) At 9th level, a ranger can avoid even magical and unusual attacks with great agility. If he makes a successful Reflex saving throw against an attack that normally deals half damage on a successful save, he instead takes no damage. Evasion can be used only if the ranger is wearing light armor or no armor. A helpless ranger does not gain the benefit of evasion.

Jagr's family has a long and proud history of service as hunters and warriors to a royal court (the royals are likely not Catfolk). Jagr was one such hunter. The court was also possessed of a powerful and mysterious court wizard. Jagr was long fascinated by the many strange and wondrous items in the wizard's chambers. While he had only the most basic knowledge of how magical things worked, Jagr was still intrigued and often came to visit the wizard. For his part the old wizard found having a young athletic Catfolk around useful as he often needed to move heavy tomes, and complex equipment. One item in the wizard's lab was a constant source of amusement to Jagr, a mystical mirror that often showed visions of strange distant lands. Ever curious and a traveler at heart, Jagr often stared into the mirror. In particular he was curious about a strange far away city where a myriad of unusual folk could be seen in constant bustle.

As he grew older Jagr's work and other pursuits drew him away from the wizard's lair and he went less often, but he never forgot the wonders he saw there. He served as a hunter to the royal family and also worked for noble visitors to realm tracking rare and exotic creatures for their sport or seeking unusual exotic material components for his wizardly friend. As time when on and he grew older and more skilled he and his brother became important hunters and Jagr caught the eye of a beautiful young Catfolk woman. In time they were engaged to be wed, but Jagr began to have doubts. The woman was certainly charming, but she had definite ideas for their future. She spoke endlessly of plans for family and responsibility that made Jagr strangely uncomfortable for reasons he could not quite explain. He began to find excuses to stay out on the hunt for longer and longer. He made excuses and often asked his brother Tallis to stand in for him and make apologies. Finally, the fateful day of his marriage came and Jagr for the first time in his life found himself consumed with doubt and fear. He turned to drink with his brother and reveled his fear. His brother also deep in his cups revealed that he planned to leave on the morrow as he had fallen for his brother's bride and could not bare seeing Jagr and his bride together. As the ceremony approached a plan came to Jagr's drink addled mind. He took off his wedding coat and slipped quietly to his chambers to gather his things. He made his way to the wizard's chambers and called up the image of the distant city as he had done so often in his youth.

He stepped through and found himself in Bard's Gate. He set about learning the local speech and taking on odd jobs as guardsman, hunter or finder of lost things. He has been in Bard's Gate for some time now and still delights in the curious folk and customs there.
