You neglected to mention that Cadrius seems to take the brunt of the damage. Of course, in a non-flanking situation where our enemies actually get in a few attacks I think Shade will start absorbing her fair share.

Maeko is a little dynamo - around 5'1", 100 pounds and a 15 strength. Butt kicking for goodness!

If only he could cast spells we'd be all set.

Anyway, we're out of combat so post at will.

Done, hope you like it.

BTW about armor, the heavier armour any of my characters ever had was chain shirt, I prefer to travel light....

...If its right for hunting orcs, it should go for gnolls too

Indeed, I do like it. Very nice hooks for Cadrius, I am curious to see how he responds.

Yes, I'm curious too.

Of course now he'll be busy for a couple of days, with no time for answering

Hopefully it will be sooner than a couple of days .

So, just out of curiousity where did your character concepts come from?

I had wanted to play a Shadowdancer ever since I read the description in the DMG, so I always had that idea in the back of my head. Then one day I heard "Rhiannon" by Fleetwood Mac on the radio and the line "She is like a cat in the dark and then she is the darkness" just set a light bulb off in my head.

I asked myself who "she" was, and Shade was born.

Interesting!

Well, I started from the name, Maeko is a Shugenja I'm playing in 'Oriental Adventures', the game that got me here, I wanted a character to fit the Japanese name.

Add that I'm a sinologist with a fondness for martial arts and I have been wanting to try out the monk for a long time....

As for her attitude it comes part from 'Kung fu' (the old TV series with David Carradine? I don't know if the original title was that)
and part from 'The Initiate Brother' trilogy by Sean Russel, a very good, very realistic Asian fantasy in my opinion.

Cool. Names are normally very important to me when I create characters, and sometimes I start there too. I think the right name really gives them more depth.

And yes, the title was 'Kung Fu'. The 'Oriental Adventures' game you are speaking of, that isn't Cadogan's Lands of Dyanasty is it? You must enjoy that game since he's attempting to make it historical. I'm looking forward to our characters meeting one another.

In 'Lands of Dinasty' I'm Xiao Hu (little, or young, fox) and yes, I'm enjoing it a lot, although I hope we get to meet each other soon...

Sorry, the one with the shugenja is Oriental Realms, not Oriental Adventures, it is DMed by Walter Willis (it's the last game on the index board).

The name? That is from the 3rd Ed Board. The idea was that I would be Itches: Annoying As.

The character, well that is really a funny story. It is basically me. Only this guy is a better fighter.

Well that is only partially true. I was reading through the back-story in this game, and somewhere in there I starting coming up with the idea of this simple, and innocent fool. Who would yet remain non the less likeable. The idea was for over time, him to loose his innocence, and become hardened. Before this, it would be a good way to see what someone without guile makes of the D&D world.

The half-elf is because I gave him 2 feats, realised as a human he would need another one, so he became the hybrid he is today.

The rest is just me.

Cadrius came from...well...I'm not entirely certain. I was reading through the first couple of pages of the role posting thread when I realized I wanted to join. Well there were already a couple of goofball characters (Mega's and Cadogan's) and I wanted a serious one, somebody to bring balance to the mood.

I've never played a fallen paladin before and I suddenly had a concept of a man who consciously seeks the appropriate death but subconsciously seeks redemption for what he's done. At the time I wasn't aware I would create some sort of melodrama involving him slaying his brother and his beloved.

And while it is a good call that I tend to disappear on weekends (especially with my 21st birthday being Saturday), I'll be around to post tonight and tomorrow morning.

Oh and if anyone gets frustrated with my writing style as of late, I apologize. I've been going back and forth between what sort of third person present style of writing I'm interested in. I like the Cadrius-specific omniscient one, but sometimes I break away from that and go a little more broad. Ah well, I'll settle into something eventually.

Oops, he told a lie, guess he won't be getting back into the ranks any time soon.

For those of you that read THIS thread first in your daily routine, I've officially joined this particular game. Forgive the artistic license in adding one more enemy, then systematically exterminating it.

And no, my character did NOT come in with a "Hi guys! I'm [insert name here]! You can trust me, I'm a PC!" For that matter, he hasn't said anything yet.

Yes, I know what I'm doing.

If you really need to know, I can post a stat-block for him. He's a smidge over the 'starting gold' rule (I didn't get the right interpretation of it until I scanned this; why couldn't you have just said 450 gp?), but not with anything drastic or game-breaking.

Welcome, Lone Paladin!

There is a 'Cast' thread. To see it you just have to choose the 'show thread from the beginning' option. All of our characters are posted there (it's useful, especially in combat, to have a full character sheet available).

That said, I hope you'll enjoy gaming with us.

Ah we have a new player!!!! <Pokes him>

Okay quickly some criticism. I had a look your character sheet, and you have neither food nor water. It might be a plot device on your behalf, if so never mind. Other wise, quickly, add it in before someone notices.

Happy Birthday to you too Caddy.

As to Veteran, well that depends on what you mean by that. Age wise, your what? Twice my age Post wise, Caddy holds that tittle. As for how long they have been playing? Well personally I have been playing D&D for about 2 years now. And I have been role-playing for about 4 months now.


One last note. Can someone please wake up the poor unconscious Nobel?

Age wise well ... lets not talk about that. You do out rank me in playing experience, and I have discovered the first year of my D&D life, we didnt exactly play normally. Way too much Meta gaming (mostly by yours truly). It was probably due to the fact that the whole bunch of us, starting playing at the same time, the DM included.

To the board, well Im member number 10. And I didnt start playing until several months after the fact.

Happy birthday Cadrius!

Hmmm. It seems I've been playing D&D since before our fallen paladin was born

And welcome Lone Paladin. I hope you enjoy this game as much as the rest of us.

[edit]
Just checked the IC thread and posted a response. Please forgive her manner; she's a little on edge these days.

Well, no reason you can't have him wake up. Maybe sound of a dead gnoll hitting the ground revives him. Just the alarm he's used to, I'm sure .

Oh god, a real paladin. I don't think poor Cadrius' life could get any harder.

Incidentally Lone Paladin would you mind tossing in a bit more description in your next post? I'm curious as to what this guy looks like apart from his arms and armor. Any distinguishing features? Holy symbols? Scars? I like to get a good picture as to what each character looks like.

And as far as how long I've been playing...let's see...nine years now I think.
