Hello and welcome, players!

I've been made your fourth, and of course final, DM of your characters. I am here to help, and hope we can enjoy a fine game :smallbiggrin:

Now, for some things you absolutely have to do (every DM has it's own rules):

-Use your previous backstory or write a new one, keeping in mind the next few rules:
1) Skirt-or-more-rule: your background has to cover the bases, but can be as extensive as a wedding dress. Keep in mind that better backgrounds means more DM favors, but also is more to keep track of when roleplaying. I love myself a good roleplay.

-Just because you're tristalt doesn't mean you have to destroy everything you don't agree with, and I WILL make sure of this...

-Take levels for a certain build, sure, but don't level dip just because it will boost your wisdom save for example. I have looked at your sheets and they're fine, but please don't be making builds like: Wizard 1/Rogue 1/Fighter 1/Bard 1/Monk 1/Cleric 1


That's all that I need from you, now onto a nice game :smallbiggrin:

BTW: Post a link to your character sheet here in the OOC, and your background apart, spoilered.

Hint: I like plothooks

I've been made your fourth, and of course final, DM of your characters.

Hopefully you'll be able to keep that promise. It's like our group is cursed to be Dm'less.

Like I said, everyone actually did a pretty decent job with their backstories, if I do say so myself.


-Just because you're tristalt doesn't mean you have to destroy everything you don't agree with, and I WILL make sure of this...

Except for the crazy one, I don't think there's too much of an issue of this happening, and crazy people are funny. Not to mention I think we're all going for mid to low up, not to mention we're just level 6.


I have looked at your sheets and they're fine, but please don't be making builds like: Wizard 1/Rogue 1/Fighter 1/Bard 1/Monk 1/Cleric 1

I'll be quite honest; that build shouldn't be banned. Even from an optimisation stand point, it's so weak it's cute, and that's coming fom a Vow of Peace user. And I'm not sure how to even remotely fluff it roleplay wise, with the odd mix of abilities and stats.


That's all that I need from you, now onto a nice game :smallbiggrin:

Yay! Casting Summon Party Members...


BTW: Post a link to your character sheet here in the OOC, and your background apart, spoilered.

Do you want my full background that can be anything I had planned before? Or enough of it such that it can fit your campaign world, whatever you might have planned?

Hello there. I might have used all classes to focus one one thing I am afraid... (they all have word 'dragon' somewhere)

Character
Alyssa Avaxssi (http://www.myth-weavers.com/sheetview.php?sheetid=408974)

Description
Alyssa is beautiful... although in an exotic style. If not masked with magic, her skin is covered with tiniest greenish scales. She has large, well cared for wings and long red hair. She likes to wear extravagant clothes, but when she travels she uses practical clothing... if she remembers to change...

Personality
Alyssa is... insane. She could be cheerful and helpful one moment. And cheerfully burning villages a few hours later. She mostly does what she considers interesting and rarely cares about what others think about her actions.

Backstory
Alyssa was born in Yuan-ti tribe, grown fast and in unexpected way. Doing just what somebody wants isn't considered normal for Yuan-ti, especially for one with such special genes. She has two brothers and thanks to that everybody in the tribe could focus their attention and expectations on them, leaving Alyssa alone, so she could do what she liked. She is a really fast learner, if she really wants to know something, it didn't take her long to master her inherited powers in many, many ways. The one she was born with, channeling the power of her inner flame, shaping it and letting it out to destroy her enemies... or just for plain amusement. And the other one, based on teachings of her tribe, using the ancient blood flowing through her veins to harness surrounding her raw magic energy. She learned it fast, but among her tribe there weren't many opportunities to use it... so she left. She didn't run, and she didn't just begin a journey. The first would suggest that she ran from something, while the second suggests some preparations were made. But no, one day she just thought that this life wasn't interesting anymore... so she went somewhere else, sparing only a single thought for her home "If it would be boring out there, I will come back".

She traveled a lot, often using as directions bard's tales instead of maps. When she heard some townsfolk talking about a monster terrorizing a village nearby, she went there to see the monster and as it wasn't friendly she had to kill it at some point. They called her a hero there, and gave her a lot of gold... starting another obsession second only to 'the interesting' ... namely 'the shiny'. From now she often worked for money... and robbed people who had nice things but wouldn't share... One day in another village she went a little bit overboard... and they didn't call her a hero there ... they called her a monster. She didn't actually care, but from this point she encountered many people looking for her, trying to get bounty for her head. Year or two later the bounty was so high and so many headhunters died that only the most suicidal ones tried to get it... Except as it was a lot of 'shiny' Alyssa thought she would get it for herself instead. Not everything went as planned, they lured Alyssa to Garda Asylum using 'the shiny' to calm her suspicions... and she followed cheerfully. She stayed there for few years, as they fed her well, didn't try to take her belongings (at least after first few died trying) ... and she met a lot of famous people too. One was even a god! They also gave her a hamster (reminding her few times not to eat it)... to work out the anger issues. They said that hamsters are harmless, and that she should become friends with it and name it after something she likes... so she named the hamster Cheese. She likes cheese. And now she likes Cheese too.

After some time Asylum became boring... so, again, she just left... This time she left a note... kind of at least... she is not sure if giant hole in the wall counts. At first they tried to catch her, but as she didn't want to go back, she decided to use her magic to change how she looked like. It worked instantly! She could be clever at times! Now, just some time ago she heard that a really interesting town is nearby, built near the ancient beast, that shakes the foundations of the world (that's what bard said anyway). So she traveled there, hoping to find something interesting. Or shiny. Preferably both.


System-wise:
- Yuan-ti had too much LA for 6th level, so I think I used Drow stats with Yuan-ti fluff...
- I am quite sure that Warlock class and some feats are homebrew... if you need links I will look for them, but it was long time ago so it might take a while...


Except for the crazy one, I don't think there's too much of an issue of this happening, and crazy people are funny. Not to mention I think we're all going for mid to low up, not to mention we're just level 6.


Hey! She doesn't kill everything she sees! ... unless I roll 1 on her 'mood dice'...

Well, hello. Here's hoping you can stay around.

Sheet here. (http://ow.ly/br4rR)

FYI, a few things to note:

My character has some background listed on the sheet.

Among the things my character owns is a small house. The prices are listed here (http://www.d20srd.org/srd/wilderness.htm#buyingBuildings). Scratch that. I need the money I spent on that, so just forget it. Spellbooks, why u so costly?

That sheet is slightly off ATM, as I am switching around some levels. And that's done.

I do have a small request. May I have a day or two to build a new character in line with the original 16 or a new 16. Starting up and then stopping this char three times already has made me a chagrined to attemp this specific one again. While I originally loved the idea of him, it has left a sour taste in my mouth to think of him "dying out" again.

I'm doing my absolute best to stay with Althia, to the point where I'd make another public thread for tristalts if everyone else decided to quit on me. Though I admit I'm getting tired of starting and stoping.

If I remember right, we pretty much had free reign. Level 6 and all the stuff that would give a character, 40 point buy, 3 flaws, 3 traits, and (so long as it isn't pidgeon peckingly done) free multiclassing, with the only alignment restriction being that we can all play nice together. You did ask for a low to mid op game where we could make our favorite builds but not blow up the world, remember Azoth?

What type of character do you think you want to make? Got any ideas already, or just wanna do a new concept?


Hello there. I might have used all classes to focus one one thing I am afraid... (they all have word 'dragon' somewhere)

Nothing wrong with that. (says the person who's using 3 sets of spellcasting to be the White Mage).


Hey! She doesn't kill everything she sees! ... unless I roll 1 on her 'mood dice'...

... there's just the worst possible joke ever to give to that, but I'm not going to make it.


Hurray game! Hopefully this will work out :smalltongue:

If it doesn't, I might see if someone wants to teach me how to Dm.


I just moved into a new place so I can't type up my background right this second, but ill try to find time soon. It is heavily tied in with Ino's.

You wanted to go with that variant? I thought we were going for only a tangental reckoning in the end. I'll Pm details.


Forgot to say, but I do expect a minimum of 1/2days posting, to keep things moving, except when previously said so.

I hope to at least post once a week, if not more so, but some times things get busy, and I try to respect that for everyone. That said, disappearances over 2 weeks with no prior warning or explination aren't very nice....


Crazy people are funny! I agree :smallbiggrin:
Though frowned upon:smallannoyed:

I wonder if there's an actual ingame concept for insanity somewhere...



That specific build? Yeah, but you get what I mean

Whether or not I agree with it, I kinda see what you mean, and avoid it with a passion myself.


YAY! My favourite spell!

Shouldn't Wish be the favorite spell?


Full background. You said we could modify it? I'll look into it.

I assume you can ask for such changes if you wanted to, being the Dm and all. I don't mind it at all done to me, in the interest of helping in any way I can with the game.


Butt's aren't cliché....
Butt I get what you mean, hehe

Gotta love girls with good Charisma, Dexterity, and Constitution Scores.

Also, about those plot hooks, should they be character specific or ideas for the entire party?

50 gp is costly? Sucks to have to spend money on spells...

I was going to change the race and such a bit.

Going more of a knowledge buff type than the "I am an envoy of a god you have never heard of".

Maybe something along the lines of arctic winged lesser assimar (+4dex +2con +4 wis flight)(+2LA)/xxx3/shiba protector1//swordsage6//paladin2/xxx4

I have to blow 4 feats to get shiba protector(human heritage, alertness, iron will, and combat expertise) and all that allows me to do is add wis to hit/dmg.

Maybe find a way with cloistered cleric to get decent party buffs. I wouldn't run any DMM.

Ok, ok.... Once every week at least. Happy now?
Even so, if you take longer than a week I WILL HAVE TO KNOW. Or I'll be really mad.

Ultimate epic wish?

Nah, the DM already is a god...
Besides: Summoning friends is way cooler than anything wish can do!

I do, I REALLY REALLY do. Especially the dexterity scores.
Although a guy with a good constitution score will do too.

Character based only. Maybe, if you discuss it, it can be interwired with another character. I like having each character get through some personal issues.

It's called development

winged lesser assimar

Except for stats buffs, sounds a lot like your Winged Human if you ask me. Maybe my eye is just untrained.


Going more of a knowledge buff type than the "I am an envoy of a god you have never heard of".

They sound a lot a like, actually.


I have to blow 4 feats to get shiba protector(human heritage, alertness, iron will, and combat expertise) and all that allows me to do is add wis to hit/dmg.

Lucky we get so many flaws then.


Maybe find a way with cloistered cleric to get decent party buffs. I wouldn't run any DMM.

I suppose if you want to, though I'm building my character completely around supporting the rest of the party, so hopefully I can cover what you don't get or might need.

Which reminds me, feel free to recommend any buffs you might want, so long as it's a Cleric, Bard, or Sorceress spell, and hopefully I can aquire them in the future, if not already.


I still want to hear it :smalltongue:

....What are the chances of her failing that check once a month (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/NoPeriodsPeriod)?


*giving in for the umpteenth time...*
Ok, ok.... Once every week at least. Happy now?

I will try my absolute best to do once a day if we are all that active...

I'm just saying with midterms and such coming around in school, it might be nice to have a little bit of breathing room, not to mention not trying to steam roll fight each other when it comes to roleplaying.


Even so, if you take longer than a week I WILL HAVE TO KNOW. Or I'll be really mad.

Oh definitely. Hate it when people disappear entirely without saying -something-.


(Slow posting would btw be the only reason why I would ever leave this campaign. And you guys being ******* and not wanting to follow any kind of story)

At the very least, I'm more than willing to try to follow a story.


Nah, the DM already is a god...
Besides: Summoning friends is way cooler than anything wish can do!

The notion that the summons will do anything you want to is one that I find outdated. You'd think monsters that could be easily wished up would be able to wish to be immune to summoning junk, not to mention half the tricks it would take to get them to surrender wishes....


I do, I REALLY REALLY do. Especially the dexterity scores.

A waist man, huh. That's interesting.


Although a guy with a good constitution score will do too.

You like guys with big butts? :smalleek:


Character based only. Maybe, if you discuss it, it can be interwired with another character. I like having each character get through some personal issues.

Huh. I wasn't thinking about it in terms of character development. Besides, not all characters specifically need it. I hope that Althia's rounded enough to be fine the way she is. After the last bit of conversation, that came out a bit wrong.


Plus the cost of the spells themselves. It wasn't much, but I'd spent most of my money.

I didn't think you knew that many spells as a factotum for it to matter...

Gotta love early qualification for Prestige Classes. Paragonistic Apostle yay!

.... You need a Chameleon Familiar, in addition to your Horse Animal Companion.

@ Vixsor Lumin, think you might be open to changing your build a bit? I know a way to make your character stronger that costs you absolutely nothing and gives nothing but bonuses, and it's not a cheap trick or anything, just a class substitution. Your character keeps everything it has, and only improves.

Eh the knowledge buff is going to be a bit of a crotchety old man. Not nearly so combat focused as my unarmed smacker. I think all of his feats so far have actually just been to qualify for his PRCs.

Build is done aside spell selection. I am working on fluff at the moment.
He is LA2/monk1/fighter2/shiba protector1//paladin3/stone blessed (dwarf)3//Cloistered Cleric6.

http://www.myth-weavers.com/sheetview.php?sheetid=451261

I intend to play him as the old guy that always has a story to tell about something obscure. When combat breaks out, he is going to try and help the others rather than start smacking people first.

Think caring old senile codger type.

Actually, as I look over my spell selection so far...I seem to be more healing/battlefield control oriented. The healing is minimal...but I guess we needed the BFC since we have strikers, adaptables, and a white mage. Someone need to be dropping the clerical screw yous on the bad guys.

If he does get mad/involved in the fight...well he can rafiki you with his walking stick...that's about it.

Not early at all. I just derped and forgot to go in on time.

I get a minus 3 from from the flaw, but I add my wisdom bonus to my saves. I put both in the same column of affects.

Also, if I take the assimar/half celestial transition class, the final level gives wings with a better flight speed...but worse maneuverability. Do I keep my current speed/maneuverability, do I gain the new ones, or keep the better of both?

Ah, your other build was the "unarmed smacker" in question. I kinda wanted to see that in action, multihitting with powered up unarmed attacks multiple times in a round...

I intend to play him as the old guy that always has a story to tell about something obscure. Think caring old senile codger type.

Hm... what does that remind me of... (http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0218.html)


When combat breaks out, he is going to try and help the others rather than start smacking people first.

So, we've got 2 people beating up things, we've got one person blasting everything, and we've got 2 supportive people (though one at least has the ability to fight).


Actually, as I look over my spell selection so far...I seem to be more healing/battlefield control oriented. The healing is minimal...but I guess we needed the BFC since we have strikers, adaptables, and a white mage. Someone need to be dropping the clerical screw yous on the bad guys.

I dunno, what with all of my abilities completely oriented to roleplaying and support, and soon to be massive amounts of healing, I don't think you really need to focus too much on healing yourself. And when it comes to Battlefield Control, aren't Wizards/Sorcerors and even Druids better than the Cleric? Not to mention a Wizard with the Int focus would help with the knowledge angle you seem to be playing up.

Still seems interesting, though. Clerics are awesome!


If he does get mad/involved in the fight...well he can rafiki you with his walking stick...that's about it.

.... awesome. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CydieVRqtW0)


Factotums don't use spellbooks, Chameleons do. And the price wouldn't be that high if I hadn't spent my money already.

Um... Chameleons don't get a Familiar, and my Companion is a dog. One I am likely to forget I have.

Ah, I understand now. Though I don't see why you'd neglect your companion once you chose it. Poor dog... (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6uU7-X0iHes)


No, I like them fit, well build, good constitution... :smallsigh:

Heh, that just sounds funny. I was refering to an injoke I might not have even shared with this group, so I suppose it's not as relevant here.


Reflex:

I'm surprised your base save is that low. Aren't you a Warblade & Factotum? Going by stats alone, it should be +7, not counting whatever saves your class gives you or your other special abilities or items.

Anywho, I'll go ahead and do the roll. It's up to the Dm if it's a +7 or a +5.

[roll0]

Also, still totally taking suggestions for spells known for Bards and Sorcs, up to 2nd level, provided they can't also be learned by a Cleric. The Cleric part will be a bit more flexible, to suit the way the adventure goes.

I should make a list of spells I might take, actually... maybe you guys can proof read it and see what you think of my choices.

Yeah clerics aren't that great at BFC but I hate that just about every build for them is either DMM Persist buffs and trivialize the mele...or heal like no one's business.

I found a few gems for BFC in the generic cleric list. Ice Slick, Obscuring Mist, Silence, Bewildering Replacement, nausiating exhalation. I can also use SM line for a few creatures with annoying abilities. The only heal/buff I am packing are a few close wounds/and mas sresurgence. My saves are high enough that "theoretically" I should be the last to fail one. So the ability to give you all another chance or two in a day is golden.

I still have the sheet for my smacker. If the old guy dies, I can port him in to lay down some pain.

Crap. It should be 2 higher (+1 Dex, +1 cloar of resist). Also, Factotum and Ranger are the good Ref saves on me. Warblade has poor Ref. And all 3 have poor will saves! :smallsmile:

Actually, Clerics are all good for a lot of things. Primary Melee, Primary Ranged, Skill Monkey, Summoning Caster, as well as Primary Healer and Buffer... most of the time, Healing isn't given much appreciation outside of Vigor. I hope I can still be useful, actualy...


Ice Slick,

It looks a lot like Grease, except in exchange for lacking it's Utility, it can take up a wider area on the floor...


Obscuring Mist

Isn't this spell capable of being learned by almost everyone, not just Clerics?


nausiating exhalation.

I can't find this one. The closest I get is a Dragon Fire Adept ability, actually...


I can also use SM line for a few creatures with annoying abilities.

Fair enough, but so could your previous punchy character, if I remember right.


The only heal/buff I am packing are a few close wounds/and mas sresurgence.

-Wow-! How do you have 4th level spells already?


My saves are high enough that "theoretically" I should be the last to fail one. So the ability to give you all another chance or two in a day is golden.

Heh. My defenses are so low, being able to even roll a save is probably the least of my problems.


I still have the sheet for my smacker. If the old guy dies, I can port him in to lay down some pain.

I never like the idea of just subbing in a new character when one passes away. Once we reach 9th level, I'll be sacrificing the WBL that would have gone into weapons and armor into the diamonds needed for reviving people, be it party members or those slain in the world. So be sure to get your character how you like it, because unless someone pulls a Sephiroth, I'll do my best to keep everyone alive.


Crap. It should be 2 higher (+1 Dex, +1 cloar of resist). Also, Factotum and Ranger are the good Ref saves on me. Warblade has poor Ref. And all 3 have poor will saves! :smallsmile:

.... something is still not adding up. Shouldn't you have a +13 (+ 6 Base , + 5 from Int, + 1 from Dex, and + 1 from Resistance Cloak) to your Reflex Save? The Dm never said we were flatfooted for these Reflex Saves.

Althia heals the 3 non-commoners who actually survived the blast, and begins moving to the Tower.

Diplomancy vs Dragons! ... hopefully Althia isn't about to end up becoming Princess Peach.

By the way, if Vixsor doesn't come back since Vixsor won't be coming back, think we should find 2 more party members to join us mid game? 4 players, 1 of which is strictly a huge target at worst and unable/willing to contribute to klling at best, seems kinda small. And I've always prefered bigger parties, at least so long as everyone keeps up.

Ok guys on my initiative pass I am going to sling out an Ice Slick under the dragon. This should cause it to make a DC 18 Ref save not to fall off of the castle wall and land on the ground prone.

From there if anyone was a way to immobilize/entangle it that should buy us a bit of time. I doubt this thing has perfect maneuverability so it can't just bolt straight up and continue.

Since it seems to be either possessed or what not, given that a human speaking it's languge didn't even remotely divert it's attention away for a second, I don't think there's too much more I can do.

Then again, I didn't even get a chance to roll diplomacy against it to see how it might react toward me. I wonder what I would have gotten.

Not if you had the Goron Mountain Dwarf Tunic!

Seriously though, DC 15 Reflex Save to avoid catching on fire, and since the place was just attacked, it shouldn't be to the point where Extreme Heat comes into play just yet. Provided you don't roll Natural 1s, you and I are basically fireproof, given your Reflex bonus of 13. Which you still need to fix on your sheet; we did go over this earlier.

Still, I'd be careful if I were you. At 63% of your normal hit points, you'll want to avoid doing anything else that might cause you to die, and walking into fire is suicidal for those of us who don't fast heal / are flame resistant.

I suppose, other than confirmation on tactics (and maybe indulging in my rampant curiosity) that we're ready for the Dm to advance?

So, about possibly recruiting other players into the game, anyone particularly opposed to me doing so? I've always prefered more partners to less, myself. I might host another recruitment thread to bring some people in if no one minds.

I personally think we could use an Arcanist of some kind. I thought Mopsus was going to cover that before, and I don't think either Engald nor Althia can really claim it themselves. And for a 6th spot, I doubt we could go wrong with an additional beat-stick!

See, that's what I thought. I'd have considered Althia to be able to handle it, but being 2 levels down on Bard Spells, and 1, soon to be 2, on Sorcerer levels that are already weaker than Wizard Levels, as well as the whole "not hurting a single soul" thing, she doesn't make for much of an Arcanist.

Also, are we to know each other? Or just be in the right city at the right time, and be the first 4 to act? Just for the sake of backstories for ourselves, as well as for potential newcomers.

Hm... you know what, that is a pretty darn good question. It's universally accepted that the Wizard List is stronger than the Cleric List, but they're both considered the tops of the game, so by how much more might it be stronger..... New Thread in the Forums! Though, if no one objects to more party members, we at least don't need another source of Divine Magic. We've got 2.5 Clerics already!

I only think we could use more because if a Drunk Dragon is our starting encounter, we might need more help. That, and unless we get more constructs/undead, I know ya'll might need more help in defending against whatever we fight. Plus, we were originally going to have 5, but now that number's gone down... I just like bigger groups myself. If some people *coughmecough* don't slow the game down, then it helps keep things alive, and more characters means more roleplaying!

Some times, when pushed, people push back... and some times, things just get kinda ugly.

Sunday Evening, things got ugly. And Monday was mainly clean up.

The Frenzied Berserker class seem like it would be interesting to roleplay... but it's not that fun in real life.

I've been getting help dealing with it for a couple of years, now. And I've done very well for the most part. But there's always a chance that a mistake is made.

Everything's back to normal now, though. Including me posting for D&D when I should be paying attenion to my professors. :smalltongue:

I was almost tempted to make a pervyish joke about something in character, but I decided to drop it.

So, rest of group, what do you think about me possibly trying to open up recruitment for 2 more players, just for having a bigger, more diverse group?

And what say you about backstories again? I know it might give a small tactical advantage in that the psycho's crazy-fire won't nuke us, but I'd say we at least know very little about eachother, if at all.

I'm in another game with Qwerty; I'll ask him. Though he should still be around, last I checked.

At the worst, we could open recruitment again. Wouldn't be hard to introduce up to 3 new adventurers in the desert, assuming they don't come from other cities and get knocked into teleporters powered by old men killing themselves...

In the intrum, should I make a post to go ahead and try to help get us out of the desert? Or should I wait and see what the Ranger wants to add to the conversation first?

I also wonder if I should consider going Sublime Chord up the Bard path, just for the heck of it.

I... actually don't have much of a response to a Sand Storm... not unless Spot/Search checks to find a hiding spot might be called for.

And I can't actually cast that spell again... well, I can do it one more time, but A) that would be my last non-domain spell of that level, which means unless I can convert the domain spell as well, I'd be out of such spells for the day.

B) It would be my last casting of Create Food and Water, and we should probably consider eating sometime soon...

and C) if I take too much strength damage, my own clothing would be too heavy for me to move in, let alone the rest of my equipment.

It probably wouldn't be able to help right now anyway, given the winds that occur in a Sand Storm...

TL;DR: I've got nothing this time.

Now that I've had time to think about it, I'm not entirely sure I'll be even considering the spells, to be honest. Due to the lack of focus on Weaponry, and maybe even on Armor, most Althia's wealth will be spent on Magic Items and donations to the Church. Keeping money stored away for Revival Purposes shouldn't be too hard... They'd have just been Sanctified Versions of the Raise Dead line, requiring Strength, Dex, and Constitution Damage / Drain / -Character Level for each one respectively, at least at rough draft.

Althia herself wakes up a couple of times to some ants passing the 10ft barrier.


That's right, that's what you get for thinking I'd murder you in your sleep :smalltongue:


Give that, with the losest and meanest interpretations of how Vow of Peace works, her rolling over onto an ant on accident could cause her to lose 1/3rd of her class features. I'd say using a spell to be able to watch for and prevent that probably does it's job, though the intent was more if anyone potentially might stumble nearby and be able to find us while we're underground. Who knows how the sand might have shifted while we sleep.

The second one was so that she could be awake to provide Breakfast for everyone while recieving her spells at the first sign of Pelor's guidance (the breaking of the Sun). Althia's an early waker, striving to be prepared to nurture others around her.

Give a non unbroken bit of sleep, does that mean Althia doesn't get to prepare/regain her lost spells? Speaking of which, I rewrote my spell list. Just need to add it to my sheet. ... along with the backstory I never added that I was supposed to.

:smallbiggrin:

Hm.... for the first time ever, I'm actually tempted to consider making a homebrew class. How would you respond to a prestige class that lets the user use their own life force to heal others, by means of burning their own hit points to cast healing spells, burning more to remove certain negative effects in the process?

Also, do not give him ideas. He does not need to make himself any more awesome than he already is. No time warping.


So ...

... we will encounter undead, constructs or heterosexual female villains?

Well, to be fair, as is, you are a derpy, poisonious, half dragon creature (when I think about it, I still say you should have been a Kobold Sorcerer / Dragonfire Adept / Dragon Shaman, but that's just dragin it out too much), so not every thing that likes girls is automatically attracted to you. Says the one playing a 27 Cha - 12 Dex - 16 Con Human Female...

And while, yes, you've got the magic to fix that, you've also got the magic to change your form, too, which means you could potentially still seduce undead, constructs, and straight females, too, depending on your luck.

Random Edit before I sleep: I assume no one will bat an eye if I change a bit of Althia's fluff? Just her appearance. Found a bit of inspiration for her look.

In order: I think I -might- stay with Radiant Servant, otherwise I'll try to come up with something somewhat balanced; maybe start doing some research on what levels various "statuses" start to occur, as to find a baseline for how much restoring them should cost.

A friend introduced me to a new game series. I've been mostly watching her play, but I occasionally get to try, and I've been looking up the characters, too. One of them has a wonderful story, and in terms of look and personality, I figured that she was close enough to Althia that I'd use the character's look for Althia's.

Before:

After:

Thanks for the information about the city. I'm sorry I hadn't posted yet; I'll be honest in being slightly worrysome when you didn't come back for a bit. Though I of all people have no right to do so.

Speaking of which, I had 2 things to say: First, I'll be out of town from the 23rd until the 30th/1st. I may or may not still have internet access then. So that's a thing.

Secondly; do you guys remember Vixsor Lumin? I'm sure you do. If no one objects, I think he might be interested in being able to play, and might want to come back.

So, hope everyone else is still alive....

I have to say I like first Althia the best, but sure, change her appearance.

Maybe it's just because my friend has been Black-Holing my Spare Conscious Time worse than 30 Tabs on TvTropes, but I've become a -massive- fan of the series where the new picture originates, and that's probably why I like it a bit better.

Seriously, I've never been so proud to be a fan of 50+ little girls in various outfits and jobs firing thousands of energy blasts at each other while still managing to -semi- make sense of what the hell is going on. It's like (Powerpuff Girls x Dragon Ball Z)^(FLCL + Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann).

That, and her theme song is one of my -favorites-. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qhlXhaS3OkU)


Second: I'm okay with Vixsor joining again, if he sends me a pm or something.

I messaged him reminding him of this. He should get back to you soon.


Yeah. Let Vixsor join. We can find his character in a treasure chest. It is the best way to join to the party!

Psh. The best way to join the party is saving someone else mid combat.


As for appearance... the first one looks adult... the other has undefined hair color and is... high school age?

I've gotten a few notes about the first pic about her hair color being somewhat indiscernable (is it white? Pink? Silver? Purple?), so I'm not too bothered by that. Heck, the odd coloration can be seen as a mark of her newly inherent divinity. +1 Cookie to whoever first finds the Trope I'm referencing.

And the youthful appearance is actually what is meant for Althia: despite her experiences and occupation, and the high esteem she is held in Pelor's clergy and in Abrinith (as well as in those whose lives she has personally saved through her magic), she -is- just 17 -this- year. Even someone so young and inexperienced in matters of the world is still capable of dedicating herself passionately to her beliefs, goals, and dreams; something that one might hope others would take to heart.
