Wow. I just looked it up. You only get 2.1 mil apiece. Have fun buying your own private countries and all that.

I really like all the concepts that have been floating around, that have been PMed to me, and that are posted here. For just one example - really great backstory MadDog! I can see why you wanted to focus on the mechanics at this point.

I'm getting really encouraged now.

I will start putting up campaign-specific information in the appropriate subforum this week, and will make notes here for what is in there. I'll post the background information as well as the rules to which we've agreed, plus other house rules that will affect the game. I'll also put links for already established material (SRD, Dark Sun PDF, etc.), so look for that coming up.

If you think that you've got a character ready for the initial look, go ahead and send me a draft. We'll tweak accordingly, and then I'll put the "final draft" in my own subforum. I'll allow each of you, individually to decide how much actual character information you would like other players to know. There are alot of things that would be known quantities, but I really like to keep most of the numbers completely offscreen.

Okay, I'll be back later. I suppose I'd better do some work .

Would now be a good time to tell you all about an exciting investment opportunity?

Okay, that was funny, but if that guy was on my team I'd let him get fragged every time. Good grief!

I'm working on getting something up either this evening or tomorrow. I've got class to teach this afternoon, and some errands to take care of afterward. I'm getting really excited about this.

Oh, and aside from my panic that I'm supposed to have a character all ready? Am I?

I can't watch youtube right now, but I'll be sure to when I can.

Eh, don't sweat the character. I'll try to have a rough draft submitted soon, but since my f2f group kind of decided that the next session will be Thursday (last session was on Sunday), I've got to scramble to work out just what the heck they're doing.

Oh, and for the record, I'll be out of town from the 14th to the 21st.

GM just emailed me saying that he's going to be in a meeting for somewhere around 4 hours. He planned on posting to here lunchtime, I think, but now he's not so sure when he'll be back.

I'm back now and am backlogged. Yay for bureaucrats! How about, I'll get something up soon, rather than give myself a deadline to miss. Soon is so vague there's no telling when I might post.

Ah the anticipa

I'd use a different word if I were you. Link keeps promising updates 'soon' in the challenge-rating challenge, and we're lucky if we get one every two weeks.

I was going to PM this to Chris for review, but I thought that the rest of you might like to see what I was up to as well (and could probably offer some advice). I'm not quite settled on feat and spell selection yet, so those could change. I also need to adjust his listed Special Attacks/Special Qualities to match the list of race/class abilities.

One feat that caught my eye is Permanent Emanation, so if you guys know of a good sorc/wizard spell of 5 level or lower that's Abjuration, Divination, Illusion, or Transmutation, and is an emanation (that's a lot of -ations!), let me know



And here he is, for the world to see:

Appearance/Description:
Aros is a rather handsome man, despite the evidence of many hard battles on his face -- both physical and emotional. He wears a short goatee and short dark hair, which is usually concealed under his helmet. A tarnished breastplate covers his ample chest, and his plain looking -- but unquestionably effective -- two handed sword, christened Anglachel is carried on his back. Strong, but not overly brawny, it is clear that he can wield it with efficient grace and an economy of movement.
Thanks to a tattoo he has, penned in the blood of an ancient rust dragon (due to the Xoriat incident, he doesn’t remember how he got it), his skin has taken on a slightly metallic luster, and always seems somewhat cool and hard to the touch.

Mannerisms:
Aros has been a military man for many years, and a member of the Protectorate for three. The eldest son of a relatively well-to-do merchant, he signed into the army as both a means to defend his nation and a way to escape the monotony of a shop-keeper's life.
His acceptance into the Protectorate came following a brief campaign during which several of his squad-mates came under fire from an enemy mage. He was able to save the lives of several of his fellow soldiers and kill the enchanter, but the memory of seeing his friends turn on each other haunts him to this day. As a result, Aros distrusts such 'offensive' use of magic, feeling that such power should be reserved only for protection and healing.
At ease around other Knights, he tends to remain aloof around outsiders, despite his otherwise charming personality.


During the Last War, Aros was promoted to Captain following the incident at Drellin’s Ferry, during which he and his squad of elite Knights prevented an assembled army of hobgoblins and other creatures from invading Breland.
While attempting to assist a one of his soldiers and her fellow Gatekeepers prevent the Lords of Dust from re-opening a connection to Xoriat, the plan of madness, Aros was pulled through, and found himself on Athas. His memory was shattered, and he found he could only recall fragments of his past, prior to his arrival. Another, more tangible change was less immediately apparent: his body, saturated with volatile power, had been fortified against magical assault.

Other notes:
Take away Jean’s wand
Scold her
