Thanks for the quick responses! Here's the list of applicants so far...

Animus
Scout989
Jodjod
Mavnn (PC submitted)
Harvey
SilentSpace (Stats submitted)

And thanks to Wyrmslayer for the interest AND for being responsible about time restraints.

So that's SIX. If you guys can all get PC sheets to me, I'll close the open call. Alternates are still welcome, of course.

Go ahead... I'll trust y'all to make most of your die rolls as needed and be honest about it. We can also talk about what rolls we think I should make, and what rolls you'd like to make, just for the sake of keeping the game moving.

Sorry, but I can't join this game anymore due to time constraint.
After I finished up my fighter, now I can go cleric? *sigh* Which one to choose... guess I'll have to submit both.

hey reddist,

Am finished my fighter except for background. I would like for him to have been the veteran of a recent war. Can you fill me in on if this is a possibility? If not, then I am thinking he might have served his conscripture and has decided that his interests lie more in adventure than combat.

You've a number of options then... there have been ongoing skirmishes between Orc Hordes and the Caldessan militia along the borderlands (WAY east of where we'll start play), and these low-level engagements have been going on for nearly a decade. Or, and possibly related, the second son of every family is required to serve time in the militia, though volunteers are of course accepted. Your first stint is three years, with an option to renew for another three, and if you complete THAT, you have the option to go "career" and begin your officer training. However, if a conscript completes his first three he can simply walk away, no questions asked. Most of these conscripts serve in the Border skirmishes, though there are many who serve elsewhere in Caldessan lands, either along borders with other nations or within, mostly protecting rural areas from wandering monsters. Deserters are frowned upon, but no one spends a lot of energy chasing them down.

Heres the concept for my guy, will have the rest done soon:

Taklinn Strakheln, a apprentice armoursmith and wizard of the southern mountains, is a young and small man by dwarven standards. He is a little under 4ft and has a fine dwarven frame that (despite being healthy) is obviously not that of a warriors. He has brown eyes and fiery red hair which is quite curly and a short beard which looks like a tangled mess, although he has appeared to have at least tried to comb it. His usual attire is that of thin, baggy checkered breeches, a flimsy shirt tucked in tightly to his trousers and a leather apron of some sort. He is a wizard of some considerable power and was taught by the mage's guild from his home city. The guild intermingled the normally un-dwarven art of magic into more traditional dwarven values, however, and so the majority of Taklinn's powers are based around fire and earth (representing the dwarven forges) and spells to bolster the power of wepaons. Aside from advancement as a mage, Taklinn wishes to learn to craft magical items and arms to rival the master's of his home.

Maybe I could tie Ven to this too? He and Harvey's character could already be friends when the game begins.

Sure. I certainly don't mind if your backstories merge or overlap.

Hello all,

I love spiked chains, but you need pretty high stats to make them effective. Like if you wanted to take improved trip or disarm, you need combat expertise (Int 13). But it really depends on what you want to do. You have the Dex so you can go dodge-mobility-spring attack route, but you don't really need a spiked chain for that. You could save three feats (weapon finesse, improved weapon finesse, exotic weapon proficiency) if you used a polearm, then pick up spring attack as soon as you meet the bab prereq. Just a thought.

Bran Olvant, Treasure Hunter Extraordinairre, has spent most of his time on expeditions for the Cartographer's Guild. He never was interested in finding new places to map; he just cares about finding treasure, springing traps, and swordplay, because these are the things worthy of ballads. He always seems to have his bangs partially covering his right eye. Recently, he just finished an expedition to find Kojo-Mamba's Underground Palace, where he came back with a sack full of gold and a really stylish punching dagger.

Oops. Realised last night that I'd added up the stat costs wrong on the character. I've editted the post above rather than repost, correcting the stats, adding in the 2nd lvl hps (went for the average) and swapping Stunning fist and Improved Grapple - Improved Grapple is (much) easier to pick up later, and Stunning Fist gets the bonus uses for being taken as a monk feat.

Hope this doesn't cause any problems.

This is just the first draft, I want to get with whoever it was that was going to play a wizard and collaborate on spells and such things, so whoever that was, email me at frid_harry7@msn.com and help me figure out which spells to take. Also, I'm open to suggestions from others on how to spend my remaining money effectively ( I usually play fighter-types, it's been quite some time since the answer to that question wasn't "Buy a better sword.")

Role call

Baron : Sure, I can always accept alternates.

Harvey: If you're still willing, it looks like the party might need a cleric. However, I can "supplement" healing with cleverly placed healing potions, safe locations, friendly NPCs, or other such tricks if you want to add to the party's damage output.

So here's what I have...
Aniumus: Bran Olvant, a rog/fig
Scout989: Jaleph Bigthumb, sor
Jodjod: Taklinn Strakheln, wiz/fig
Mavnn: Kragor, monk
Harvey: still waffling between a cleric and a tank
Silentspce: Ven Stormfang and Rufus, rgr/brb and his dog

The Baron: waiting in the wings...if you want to write up a PC, please feel free!

Finish filling out your stats and backgrounds, and I'll post some "opening scene" stuff this evening.

Note: I usually let my tabletop players continue tweaking characters until they gain a level. My thought here is that if you are going to play a PC for a Long Time, you want to be happy with it. As you play a while, the PC begins to develop a personality that you might not have considered during the initial generation, and some changes in the stats might be required to get the mechanics inline with the PC's personality.
