OOC: The place for cackling!

Whoohoo! We're up and running!
Thanks BRR for getting us started and thanks to all who viewed and posted their interests in the character acquisition thread.

This week, burlyjr and I will be adding basic content about creating characters, posting actions, basic house rules, and our version of the Realms in which the scenarios will take place. Be thinking of a 3rd edition, first level character using just the basic core rules. Keep it real simple, folks.

We are looking at having the first scenario up and ready to roll in less than a week. I already have it typed up and have the initial map ready.

Much more to come....

Cackle. Cackle.

Ok, so I am just finished generating an Earth Mephling Druid (Manual of the Planes) because I always wanted to make one. Or I could use a Dream Dwarf instead. Or if it comes down to it, a halfling because I already have one of those too. Looks like I am pretty solid for a druid.

Er...
Stop it! You're scaring me!
What the hell is a Mephling anyway?
Whatever it is...I'm gonna kill it!

Core rules only, my friend. Just started a thread on character creation - check it out.

I figured as much. But I wanted to be the first to cackle and I was looking at this book not too long ago. A mephling is like a little mephit from the planar handbook. The not so evil runts of the mephit family.

From left to right: Water, Earth, Fire and Air.

I've just realised that this may be one of the few situations where AD&D is actually superior to 3e. The problem with character creation for these little adventures stems from how much a character can be customised when really you just want people to play a thief or a fighter.

Not that you should change. It just made me think.

You're right BRR - and I have always thought AD&D was superior to 3E - but that's an whole 'nother discussion in a whole 'nother forum.

I knew you were joshing akiko - I love Mephits! Use 'em in my games occasionally with fun and sometimes devastating effect.
Nice pic!

Please do start a thread about that. This is pretty much the only time I've seen value in AD&D, the thought of somebody thinking it superior is quite intriguing.

I'll start it, but I gotta run some errands right after.

You can field the scathing remarks and dodge the sling stones, eh?

That was fast.

YAY! Combat and more combat to come. Going to have to run off and make some quick characters to run through it all.

Might as well throw a quick question at you, by core it's PHB, DMG, and MM right. You're not including the Expanded Psionics Handbook?

My name is Gary, by the way. You can call me coffeesucker, Coffee, or you can refer to me by my Native American name: Three Tracks in the Snow

I was wondering when you were gonna show up, Bel!

There's room for all!
Well, until we put out a call for players, then it's first come, first killed....er, I mean served

What we want folks to be doing now is creating a character or two (see the Character Creation thread) and get ready to chime in when we post the scenario - we are aiming for Sunday evening to kick off the first scenario and invite the first five players.

Thus, if you have your characters ready, you can jump in and we can post combat right off the get go!

How long do you plan on the first quick post to last?

I know you said you're going to start Sun (night), but you expecting more than a week long?

If so, I think I'm going to be sitting the first one out sadly. Don't want to hold back the quick post at all. Going to be leaving on the 8th of July and won't have internet access for a week.

Do wish I could be part of this though, especially the first run.

Mini sessions - right! Jump in whenever you can.
As for how long the first one will last - I'm think it won't last longer than 10 rounds - if it does...that means that the "bad guys" are skinning the "good guys."

I'm gonna be out of town on the 8th too. But Johnny is gonna run it for the weekend should it last past the 7th. But if we can post once or twice a day with two to three rounds of action per post, we might be done by the 7th.

Jump in Noo - you won't hold back the quick post - we'll just move on without you - note the "skinning" reference I made earlier
