Ooc

First post. WOOT!

Can you change font color on the world information? I read the email you sent, but it's nice to have the information here too, and the black font is hard to read against the gray background.

Hi.
I sort of poked Link about the game, and, huzzah!, I am joining.

I may be doing Lurk, though my interest lies in a psion/wilder.
Not sure what the focus will be.... will want to see what others make.


So, hi.

Hey all! We got a thread!

I second the background campaign info color, I went to go reread it there and decided it wasn't worth time time with the black font.

Are we going to recap the characters, and what format are we using for posting characters?

It originally was discussed & 'formed' on the 3EBB, but they decided to have it here.

It's essentially full.
Talk to Link about it, but I myself was added on after he said "ok, we've filled the six or so spots."

Okay, I will change the color.

I will post a template in the character sheet subthread with an example for you all to follow when posting your characters to make things easier on me. Please, take your own thread for each character to keep it neater. One post with your actual sheet and one post for your backround information in the thread, and then I will review it. If you have any reason for not wanting to post the backround information, let me know.

AoM, you're first on the waiting list.

After some sleep and some thought ...
I'm no longer on planning on being a Synad Wilder or Ardent.
I'm developing my Elan Erudite right now, should have it in the next day or so, hopefully.

But I wanted to be the only Elan.......Oh well. I have my characters statistics done, but I don't have any kind of story. Suggestions?

I intend to be primarily a "support" character.

The name is Loke the Traveler.


I'll likely take Nomad (psion), followed by Elocater.


I'm still working on race and stuff.
Need to check the thread that was on the 3EBB.


Edit: Um... actually, I was sort of hoping to play an Elan as well.

Sorry.

2nd Edit: Oh yeah, background. I'd suggest, if you are playing Elan, a mixture of those two.
As far as I can tell, Elans are generally sort of... odd.
So, something along the "formative and destructive power of fire," combined with the fact that you were essentially destroyed and recreated as a new "thing."

Loke, for example, is going to be doing some "purpose-searching," trying to figure out what he was before, and why he chose to undergrow the "Elanization."
Although it's usual that Elans "remember" what they were before, I might be messing with that whole thing for a "cooler" story.

Sorry general, looks like elans are overtaking the group now.

As for a background, not sure of how helpful I could be. Weren't you aiming towards a pyro? If so, I would try to figure out why your character loves fire so much. Come up with an idea along that line, that will probably help set a flow in motion of who your character is.

Question: How quick do you expect us to level?


I intend to do pure psion to get to elocater, but that's sort of far-off, especially if we're starting at 1st level.

I may also go with wilder, since Nomad isn't especially special.

Let me put it this way, I expect you all to have a lot of social interaction, and since 3 of you are elan... (ouch).

As for combat, having 2 psions and an Erudite could potentially be a problem, but I don't mind too much, as long as you have plenty of other characters to help you out.

So, after relooking everything over. Blah.

3 elans could be bad for the group I guess, especially if we all can cast powers. Got to love being able to abuse resilience and resistance though (and managing to have 11 hp at first level with a d4 HD).

I'm working on a second character that could be more party friendly right now, depending on what else happens here I guess. A halfling soulknife / ranger / scout / soulbow. Not the strongest of characters, but definitly an archer worth noting at times. Probably will decide later which character will be better for the party.

Also, anyone got a clue why I only have "0" posts?

No idea.

Hmm. Maybe I'll go with human wilder then.

Didn't we already have a list of who is playing what on the other site? I am planning a psionic rogue unless someone already tool that niche or we need something else like brute force. I have played in many PbPs but this is my first psionic game. So I can help on some of the origanization but not much on party roles.

If no one else does I will be heading to 3ebb in a bit and posting that list here.

Thank you, somebody is playing a trapfinder.

Yeah, didn't almost everybody post what they were going to be over at 3ebb? I know zachol didn't, but everyone else did....

List of players ...

Talae: Monk / Zerth Cenobrite
Mercutio: Psychic Warrior
generaljimX: Psion (Kineticist) / Pyromancer
Boktor: Ranger
Akiko: Psychic Rogue
idesofmarch: Fighter
zachol: Psion (nomad) or Wilder, depending on party situation.
noocytx: see below

Tally without me
2 casters: generaljimX and zachol
4 warriors: Talae, Mercutio, Boktor, idesofmarch
1 niche: Akiko

So what is truly needed? Another caster or a diplomat?
Elan Erudite - Knowledge master (psionics, history, gemology at +12 with call to mind power), can learn almost every power available. Elan helps to make more defensive by being able to boost saves and reduce damage. Also start with 11 hp.
Halfling Rogue - Skill whore, Diplomat, Combat avoidance? High Int and Cha, with Dex following closely. Focuses on charisma, intelligence, and dexterity skills. Hide in combat, probably using some sort of thrown weapon, relying mainly of sneak attack to deal damage.

I vote for diplomat. I will focus on the sneak and disable skills, and leave interaction up to you. If you go this route, of course. Not trying to force you.

Well, I'll tell you what happened IRL with the party of no diplomats (in fact, only one party member didn't have a penalty to cha, and he had a score of 10)

They didn't get very far without a member dying, at which point he said "That's it, I'm going to be charismatic now"

You need a diplomat of some kind. Trust me.

Also, I'm going to tell you all now something I haven't told you before. I'm a very lenient DM in terms of storyline. I won't force to do anything, you make all the decisions. Just keep in mind, that I do keep a very careful time table, so if you decide to do something completely random, you may make things very difficult, or perhaps even easier. I also love mazes and riddles, so be prepared to think.

Also, those of you who have aim, please post your aim sn and here's mine, as you will probobly recognize: Linklegacy77

Yea, diplomat seems to be coming more and more into the picture. Will have to look more at the books later, hopefully I get a chance. Unsure of race, probably either half-elf, human, or halfling. Wish I had access to my books at work, and wished I didn't have any work to do for my classes tonight.

Edit: Forgot to include my aim s/n. Mine is: x7ycoon
Usually, the name is signed on, but almost always away. Usually if you leave a message and I'm around, I'll come back. Otherwise, I rarely turn off the away message.

I think more than one person should be a diplomat. Not necessarily more than one focused on it, but maybe more than one with some kind of skill. You never know if we'll get seperated or what not.

My aim sn is Wolfguy64. I'm signed on a lot, but not consistantly.

I tend to play diplomat in my games.

If we want a second one, I will fill that role.

However, Wilder does not have diplomacy as a class skill, so I'll focus on bluff and sense motive - I'd likely "bounce off" of the other person.

I'd suggest the other "diplomat" focus more on diplomacy, while I'll focus on manipulation-like things.
I think I'll go into thrallherd then.

This means I'll still have ranks in diplomacy, even if it's not a class skill.
Also, I'll be taking inquisitor and expanded knowledge, for mindlink.


My sn is imamowon (AIM), by the way. .

Unfortunately, Thrallherd is not a viable PrC. That was my very first idea, though I didn't really voice it. There was no need seeing as how someone else asked about the PrC, and Link rejected it as overpowered.
