Company of Stalwart Adventurers. (3.5)
#1
With the move from Plothook, it looks like that 2 of my players haven't found this new site.  I've waited for them to find our new home but thus far there's been no sign of them.  

So I'm putting out a call for 1 or 2 new players.  One character I would like to be a Cleric of some kind and the other would be great if it were a Melee combatant. 

This is a homebrew world that that is a true melting pot.  It has pretty much every official Race/Class/Feat available.  I have many house rules that you will find out about during character creation.  Also this game will be played more like a real dungeons and dragons game with a mix of Role playing and combat, random encounters, quests and bonus xp for roleplaying and completing important goals.  You will hopefully gain levels quicker than you would in a normal PBP game.  I will be mainly using D&D 3.5 rules with some things from Pathfinder that I like.

Character creation:
First Level: so only races with LA+0.  No Templates. No Traits and Flaws. 
Hitpoints: Max first level.  Then each level afterward is a min of half+1.  So fighter min would be 6 (d10 divide by 2+1)
Skill point bonus: Favored classes gain bonus skill points equal to the human bonus.  Races without favored classes gain their first class as a virtual favored class.  This includes humans.
Feats: Start with 1 bonus Regional Feat.  You also gain a new feat every even level instead of every 3 levels.
Skills:  You may use Craft skills during character creation to buy your equipment.  This will lower the cost of equipment significantly.  In order to receive this benefit you must be able to take 10.  For example: A chain shirt requires a DC14 to make.  You need at least a Craft: Armor 4.  Take 10 + 4= 14.  
Rolling:  4d6 six times.  Reroll 1's once.  I reserve the right to alter rolls.  I will only use this power for good and not for evil.   Angel

Please no early entry prestige class shenanigans.  I'm a pretty easy going GM and only want to be fair and for everyone to have fun.  

That's it for now.  Let me know if you're interested.

Thanks.

Hello, Marvel! Mostly interested in the priestly character spot right now, and could be reviving my idea for a witch doctor character.

How would you create a witch doctor?

I dunno, that depends on what you're letting me get away with, exactly! :p
But initially, just a re-flavored cleric.

Well please send me a PM for what you would like to get away with. I'm pretty open and as long as it's Published material that I have access to then it will usually be alright. In the cases where I deem something too unbalancing, I will try to work with you to figure something out.

The player of our Rogue has been MIA for a few months with no sign of returning.  The next part of the adventure would really benefit from a rogue.  I'm already NPCing a Fighter and I'd rather not NPC another character.  So I'm looking for someone who would be interested in taking up the role.  The character would start around 2nd level.

Creating a roguish sort of character.

Name: Ningalu Baal'urki
Race: to be determined.. will be consulting GM Marvel

If i reccall from Plothook. (yes I was there, and no this is NOT Mardak lol Wink ) The rolling method was 4d6 7 times, drop the lowest and reroll 1s.
Took me forever to figure out the macro:

Attribute 1 [1d6r2] = 2+[1d6r2] = 4+[1d6r2] = 3+[1d6r2] = 3 == 10
Attribute 2 [1d6r2] = 4+[1d6r2] = 6+[1d6r2] = 3+[1d6r2] = 6 == 16
Attribute 3 [1d6r2] = 6+[1d6r2] = 2+[1d6r2] = 4+[1d6r2] = 2 == 12
Attribute 4 [1d6r2] = 6+[1d6r2] = 3+[1d6r2] = 2+[1d6r2] = 2 == 11
Attribute 5 [1d6r2] = 2+[1d6r2] = 4+[1d6r2] = 5+[1d6r2] = 3 == 12
Attribute 6 [1d6r2] = 2+[1d6r2] = 4+[1d6r2] = 3+[1d6r2] = 3 == 10
Attribute 7 [1d6r2] = 4+[1d6r2] = 5+[1d6r2] = 5+[1d6r2] = 6 == 16

And it redeems itself on the final roll. On par with the rrst of the group.
Stat array 16, 16, 12, 12, 11, 10 for a net bonus of +8

This gives me a starting point.

ABOUT US
A gaming group started in late 2005 when several members (from all over the world) came together on a long-running forum website called Plothook.net (formally known as Highmoon.net). Several games transformed from a by-the-book format to highly modified versions that became new hybrid systems with completely custom rules and abilities. Ten years later, these faithful players wanted to secure their work and their stories, becoming the basis of these forums.
