OOC Chat

It's a brand new OOC thread for 1992!

Given that only Lade was really involved in the game prior to it stalling (Kjetil was around, but never actually made contact with the party) I thought I'd have a little spring (or Autumn) clean to highlight this as a fresh start.

The only remaining thread is the Story So Far which I will one day get around to dealing with. Oh yes. I will.

So, as a reminder, here is the chargen information (nobody should need this, but just in case).

Level 5:
Starting gold: 4500g (half standard)
Stats: 4d6 discard lowest
Books: Ask
And one Exciting Bonus(tm):
  • +4 Points added to your attributes in any way you fancy
  • A single feat
  • A magic item of some wonderful origin which would otherwise be outside your grasp (you'll need to talk(argue) about this with me)

At the moment, we just need Treehouse to finish off his sheet and I need to give them all a quick once over to make sure nothing has slipped through the net. Then we can kick off, as you try to stem the tide of the apocalypse.

itches is just mad that a thread full of his genius (read: insanity) has been buried in a subthread. Look at it this way, you now have a brand new blank canvas to claim as your own. Except it's really BRR's and we're here also, but if you shut your eyes really tight you can pretend it's your own.

So, why do we not have a cleric?

We really should have a cleric. Why did you tell me to be a rogue?

I have some healing as a druid, so we're not entirely boned here. I was planning on focusing on support spells, including healing spells. I just won't have the wonderful "make any spell heal" ability.

It's more the "constant threat of incorporeal undead" I think that itches is getting at.

This falls into that wonderful category of information that would have been beneficial last week.

It's not too late to turn Karthas into a dark cleric of Slightly Less Evil Overgod #17. Background wouldn't change much.

Oh. Yeah, that's probably gonna suck. I'm going to shut up and sit in my corner until Ernie Hudson arrives.

How could I forget about the ghosts? I feel shame.

No, no, no changing. The Warlock stuff we came up with was gold.

Gold we can use to line your coffin when we're all murdered by ghosts.

Yes, yes, I'm sure that's the reason. Not like you'd enjoy kicking the crap out of us with ghosts when we can't defend ourselves.

'Murdered by ghosts' is an acceptable conclusion.

Or a segue into a Ghostwalk campaign!

-loads ectoplasm cannons-

Uhhh, working on background.

Hey BRR - is it okay if I swap out my invocations? I am not sure where I was going with the 'create tons of darkness that only I can see through' build, but I think that would probably end up annoying the rest of the party.

Would take earthen grasp and see the unseen instead of devil's sight and darkness.

Yeah, still time to merrily change your sheets.

Too bad magic weapons are so freaking expensive. Double weapons even more so.

Karthas will happily make you a badass magic weapon once he gets Craft Weapons and Armor. His asking price is merely...

your soooooouuuuuuuuuul

Hey BRR would you take a gander at what I have so far for Karthas' background? I stopped at 'he arrives at Edinway' to make sure I'm okay so far.

The next chapter in his zany whirlwind adventure involves him becoming an acolyte of the wizard university.

Yes, it's on the list. I will hopefully get to it in the next hour or so.

In light of this new revelation, I think I am probably going to opt for a masterwork chain shirt instead of magical mithril. The 2000gp will allow me to get one side of my urgosh enchanted, which may just be more important in saving my life.

Oh, wow. A spicy new OOC! And I'm here at last...

So. What do we need ghosts for? ... or wasn't that the question? In any case, we'll just hit them with our guns.. erm.. weapons. They'll dissipate and we'll be heroes. Can we all get free rings of sustenance, BRR? I don't really think anyone will want to sleep for longish periods of time when ghosts are about.

... yeah.

Btw - my laptop is still being repaired (hopefully), but I'm here every now and then. Kjetil's ready as said before.

If by revelation you mean 'Karthas taking item creation feats', I am not actually married to the idea yet. I'm still mulling it over.

Nope, "revelation" as in "we may need to fight ghosts soon and often" and "I'm not counting on anything magical except what I can buy right now".
