The levels of the spells could become 3rd, 5th, and 7th, if it turns out the spells are to powerful. I think they're fine the way they are, but we'll see how the Lesser one plays in game. :)

I agree with you; I think they're fine as they are. You and I are both the type of DM who takes the conservative approach, ha ha. I can see the reasoning behind the original spell being 2nd level; the first level spell, True Strike, gives you a +20 to hit, and a character of ANY level can "Take 20" on a given skill check, provided there is ample time, no distractions, and no penalty for failure.

What the Guidance spell does, however, is allow you to take 20 in any event, regardless of distractions, and penalties for failure. Getting a bonus to a skill check is not too much to ask for a 2nd level spell, but I agree that +20 may be a bit much. I think splitting it into 3 spells was a good move. :)

Cheers! :)

FYI, this map is based off the original version of the map on KWJ not the updated version, which now has way too many icons on it for it to be used in this manner/scale.

I just bought a copy of Oriental Adventures Way of the Ninja. Do you have access to that book? If so, you can use any of the feats in the Introduction not tied to any specific clan or to Void Use. The feats are for v.3.0, but we can alter them as we go.

Sadly, no. I do have the Oriental Adventures book, but didn't find what I was looking for (except perhaps a prestige class if/when we get to the appropriate level).

Oh well, it was on my list to buy anyway. (I held off on getting the Way of the Thief book.)

Safe to assume UA flaws are not allowed? just need to do miscellaneous items.

Dorin ♂ Human Duskblade
Actually, for my campaigns, the material presented in UA is 99% wide open to use. Which flaw did you want to take, however? As long as it fits the background of the character and the 'feel' of Harqual (in my head) then you can take it. But only one flaw per character, and none after 1st-level.

Was thinking unreactive. My background makes me out to be a witcher/monster hunter. So I would watch my enemies trying to figure them out through knowledge checks usually resulting in the enemy making the first move.

Edit: Was looking into familars but I'm not seeing anything I like to help me with monster hunting. Improved familar doesn't pump out nice things until 5th... decisions decisions.

Okay, so I'm going to come up with a list of rumors floating around the city before I start the In Character thread. It will likely have more than 6 or 7 rumors but hopefully not more than 12. I'm going to post in here sometime today, but I am going to be out for a bit, so the In Character thread won't be put up until later in the day.

I'm going to make some assumptions about where each PC is as the game starts unless any of you have any specific ideas. [MENTION=6790669]Tellerian Hawke[/MENTION] and [MENTION=6776182]JustinCase[/MENTION]'s PCs are already settled in Cauldron City, but I'm assuming -- [MENTION=6814006]Thateous[/MENTION], [MENTION=6855223]MacConnell[/MENTION], and [MENTION=11520]Scotley[/MENTION] -- that your PCs are all newcomers to the city unless you say otherwise.
