Short intro for myself:
I am Neurotic's old DM and some time ago he asked me if I would lead short 4e pbp adventure... so, long tale short, here I am :)
Basically I am reasonably new to pbp stuff, so feel free to offer suggestions and constructive criticism

About adventure preparations: if someone needs / wants to level up, buy items... they can do so before they join or before trouble kicks in, as I expect you will spend a bit of time in the city at very start of adventure

Adventure is sent to judges for review, but I was told it takes forever these days, so we will start before review is officially over. Don't worry, no vorpal swords for anyone (this time :) )

Hi MadAzolin,

I am looking forward to being a part of this. Would lvl 8 be better for this adventure. I can spend some DM credits I have to bump Kane up a level if that helps with balance.

Anyways, checking in: check!

Hi jbear, nice to have you aboard.

Considering you will be sole defender in party, it would be great to have you at level 8 - not mandatory, but would certainly help

Just to let you know, many people (like myself) use the black background for the forum, so colouring speech very dark colours i.e black, makes it difficult to read. (Not unlike light yellow on the white background).

Should we post our character info here or game thread?
 

MadAzolin

Villager
ok, I will assume black background as default then and keep colors appropriate; as for character info, put it into game thread

I've checked over Martelai and have few small errors (items from the last adventure not listed) - I realized I'm 16 XP away from 9th level :p Terrible! I have to nag at [MENTION=78756]Son of Meepo[/MENTION] for short-changing me

If [MENTION=6747396]MadAzolin[/MENTION] allows me to level even as we're starting...I'd be delighted!

Thank you.

Erm. [MENTION=78756]Son of Meepo[/MENTION], how much is that credit worth?

Considering party is still in safe environment, leveling up is fine (as long as it is within reasonable limits and sharing DM credits is within normal and accepted rules on enworld)

Is it legal for me to buy paragon level equipment? I have somewhere around 10k gp unspent...if not, I still have item slot or two to fill :)

In interest of sticking to the rules of 4e, I cannot allow learning rituals before appropriate character level, however following are all perfectly legal if party wants one of lower level PCs (Lilli for example) to do the ritual:
- someone else can write scroll for lower level PC and he/she can use it
- it is perfectly possible to buy appropriate scroll in Daunton (basically anything up to level 10 is np) - ritual scrolls are usable without level requirements or even ritual caster requirement
- while strictly speaking you cannot write ritual into your own ritual book if low level, someone else can do it for you, in which case you can carry it with you, but cannot master it until you get to appropriate level* (not 100% sure about level requirement)
- I do allow improvisation in such matters - if you have ritual at hand (in ritual book for example) and are level or two below its level, I will allow attempt to do it (it is not automatic success however); same goes if you have similar ritual (in this case fey passage would be good candidate). In absence of anything else, good explanation and some very good skill rolls might work

Since we're not time pressed, we can have someone transcribe the scroll (or [MENTION=87106]MetaVoid[/MENTION] to take/buy it and then Lilli later copies it)
