No worries. It was just an idea. :)

I thought about posting a new recruitment thread, but I wanted to see how many of the previous players would be interested. I'll post one in the next few days.

It's really, really hot where I am, so I've been a little out of it. It's past midnight and still sweating. Ugh. :yawn:

We have three new players for the game: [MENTION=6776182]JustinCase[/MENTION], [MENTION=11520]Scotley[/MENTION], and [MENTION=11456]Tailspinner[/MENTION].

That rounds out the group!

Its hot in Canada right now? We are having seriously unseasonably cool weather here in the Midsouth. Usually we are approaching triple digits (Fahrenheit) in late July, but right now it is only 65. It won't last I'm confident it will be back to our usual weather soon. Usually, the weather here in August is approximately the same as the environment found in the steam room of a Turkish bath.

So are we making new characters?
No, we're continuing where we left off, so keep your existing PC.

I'm going to come up with an in-game reason why the other PCs aren't there. Thanee's character Sheyla was likely called away by her deity for some reason. Prophetic dreams are a common occurrence amongst elven clerics, especially amongst silver elves. renau1g's PC Halmar and Dog Moon's PC Reneg could have chosen to go with her. (This separates Lorien from his longtime friend [Halmar], which is an interesting twist.) It's not surprising that Reneg would choose to go with Sheyla, IMO.

Yes, it does get very hot here in July and August. It was very bad this week and it doesn't help that there have been forest fires in B.C., Alberta, and the Northwest Territories. (We've had several bad days of haze.) It's been a lot cooler the last few days. It rained most of yesterday.

Anyway, any character ideas yet?

So, a half-orc druid. Can I write some sort of connection to another player character into his background? Perhaps his mentor / father figure is friends with an elf?

My idea so far is that [insert name here] has been raised by a human druid hermit, after his human mother (noble or otherwise important lady) abandoned him as an infant, because of the scandal of being pregnant of an orc slave (or servant).

Even though the local villagers tolerate his presence, he is not comfortable in town much; both because of mutual misunderstandings and because his mother (and her family) gets upset whenever he is in town.

What kind of animal companion would be appropriate for the area?

Fine by me. His mentor could have befriended Lorien decades ago, far far away when Lorien was spending time with the Wild Elves or the Northern Barbarians

Even if Lorien hasn't heard of the half-orc, it would at least make introductions easier

Character connections are a good idea. His mentor would likely be friends with a forest elf. Many forest elves were displaced from the Knotwood after its destruction. Forest elves and silver elves have a close kinship in the Great Forest, so it would be likely that Lorien could know a forest elf who relocated to Silverleaf after the demon infestation of the Knotwood.

Also, forest elves tend to get around -- their young people are often overcome by wanderlust near the beginning of their adult lives. Silver elves, like Lorien, are more likely to stay close to home, but wanderlust can overcome them too. It's just rare.

That all sounds good.

What kind of animal companion would be appropriate for the area?
In the Strandlands, you could pick any of these from the standard list of Animal Companions: badger, dire rat, dog *, riding dog, eagle, hawk *, horse (light), owl *, pony, or wolf *.

You can pick only these few animals from the 4th Level or Higher list: black bear, boar *, dire badger, and dire weasel.

The animals listed with an asterisk are your best choices.

Do we need a tracker? In that case, I will choose a wolf; if not, I'm going for an owl as my animal companion.

If racial paragon classes are allowed, can I assume that racial substitution levels are, too? I sorta like those half-orc druid racial sub levels (Races of Destiny, page 159-160)... :)

You might find having the owl as your PC's animal companion easier in the short term. The adventure is going to take you to an coastal island, so the wolf might be out of place for a bit.

Sure, go ahead.

Tailspinner,

I'm sure I mentioned it somewhere *, but you might not have seen it. Rogues cannot be lawful good in this campaign world.

Edit:
* Here's the post.

However, if you dead set against changing the character's class and alignment, I'm willing to let it be. I even have an in-game reason why your PC can be a LG rogue -- her people are from another world (Maran) where traditions are different. Note that other rogues will consider here very odd because of her outlook on life. It's a good roleplaying hook, IMO.

I will consider this an exception to the rule and only this one time. (That's for any players who join at a later date or play in a different PbP game in the future.)

Did you see my notice about the restart in the OOC thread? Are you still trying to read through the original posts in the In-Character thread? I just want to see where you're at regarding playing Quinn.

If any of you already have been considering prestige classes for your PCs, you should take a look at the two new files I've uploaded in the World of Kulan campaign group. The PDF is main file but the RTF will be helpful as well.

Files in Campaign - World of Kulan

I've uploaded a modified version here as well.
