Well, it depends on which characters. The original characters like Velendo were rolled on 4d6 drop one, rearrange as you like. Anyone who joined after 3e launched is a 32 point buy. On my list of things to do is to get updated sheets online, but it's not highest on the priority list.

Update will be up in a few days. Life is fun, but busy!

Yep, certainly the original Defenders were all generated with 4d6 drop worst. We've never been a hefty stat party, at least not initially. Check out Dylrath's stats one day. Rath is a playable character.

Now, of course, most of us have at least one stat that's in the grotesquely large category. Most of us have at least one skill (or in Agar's case 6 or 7) where we can make a DC 50 check of some kind.

It kind of makes for nice balance. We're not all good at everything, but the things we are good at we're obscenely good at. Which is how it should be in Epic levels.

One of the things I like best about d20's system is that it encourages niche-protection like that: as characters grow in power, they tend to get deeper, not broader, so you don't get the circumstance where one character can do everything and the other players feel like they don't get to do the cool stuff. Instead, you have a situation where X does the amazing Xthings, and Y does the amazing Ythings, and everyone feels like they get to be cool and badass in their own way.

We all had our strengths and weaknesses... it made for a much more cohesive party... and some amazing roleplaying....


"quick HEAL Valendo!"
"With WHAT? Poison, flame that I got... healing... I have a potion!"

Raevyn always did have a unique pedagogical approach.

Psychopathic pedagogy?

(Raevynn, it's a delight to see you posting here!)

Sialia, my body is right here. Fixing board-related problems resulting from the Big Crash (in particular, resetting a whole lot of Community Supporter accounts that got lost - see Meta for details if you're one of these people) has eaten five hours that I'd normally spend writing. I have about half of the next update done. My hope is to get some 'me' writing time this Sunday, and my magic 8-ball says "Signs point to yes." Nobody bump it!

*glares at Nolin* "What do you mean by that.. I am a druid. I am supposed to like animals!"
*Tao whispers in Raevynn's ear, who looks slightly red and begins to flick her nails in frustration*

"But that is besides the point.. they learned right? and if not well... then they wont make the same mistake twice!"
 

Hey PC,

Wolfgang Baur, the original author of the White Kingdom etc. wanted to read your story hour section about the White Kingdom. I am sure it is fine with you, but wanted to check with you first. Thank you!

They can't make that mistake twice.....piles of ash on the ground that used to be people CAN'T make mistakes twice. *looking skyward doing her best Valendo impression* You asked me to keep an eye on her? Not like she's going to listen to me. Raevynn, when I asked you to help the people cope with the troubles of the times this is NOT the solution I was looking for. And I'm pretty sure it's not the solution they were looking for either.

"You say coping, I say whining. Listen, hear that? It is a definative lack of whining. And ya know whats better? They serve as a VERY good warning to others...."

*fold arms flicking fingernails proudly*


Now where were we? Oh thats right... free corpse with each character sheet and a new body......
 

Piratecat, now that you've successfully nudged Sagiro into updating his storyhour we storyhour adicts think it's time you got on the side of the angels as well.

:D

An excellent idea. The annoying thing is, I haven't been procrastinating; a work milestone + crazy heat wave + no AC in my study + a little brother to visit + a busy couple of weekends (a game day and a gaming con) has resulted in very little free time. With an 100 person BBQ to host this weekend, GenCon next week and the need to build characters for a game I'm running there, I'm not sure it gets much better in the short run - but we do finish our milestone on Friday.

When you get back to it, we'll be here (gnashing our teeth in anticipation).

Let us hope PKitty is more wise than Rugen *chuckles* . . . and more to the point, you know we're hooked... we'll wait. What choice have we ?
