    Not only is character selection now 13 hours away, but I have the next two days off of work.

    Every once in a while, it's good to be me.

    Sweet Zombie Jesus, that's 37 submissions. That's a nice resounding 13.5% probability of any one character getting selected...

    Well technically you should weight by role as a dual leader party is highly unlikely. It's actually quite even from the posted list though.

    I messed around with a few characters (star pact warlock looks neat) but ultimately I couldn't find one that I really liked and I'm not sure I want to commit myself to something like this. I seem to have more fun making characters than playing them anyway.

    edit: oh, and the background for both builds I submitted (instead of two characters, one with two different builds) his background is General: Early Life - Child Prodigy (gain History as a class skill)

    also i think this is the first time that i've created a character where wearing fine clothing was the main factor in how to spend starting gold

    Unfortunately, I just didn't have the time to finish my character too.

    Ok...I've waited a week. That's long enough. Also the selection is big enough. Also also I hate deadlines.

    Before I put up the party, few ground rules:

    1. The story is the focus here, not the game mechanics. The most immediate impact of this will be experience points: There are none. You will level when I tell you to level. I'll try and design everything so that it feels as close as possible to the xp needed to level up, but I have to put some sort of speed on this thing before we all die of old age/cancer/2012(IT'S RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER PEOPLE).

    Speaking of speed...

    2. AT LEAST 1 post per day. Doesn't matter if it's RP exposition or battle details. Weekends are optional, but highly encouraged.

    And since some of you might read the story I lifted this idea from...

    3. Keep it to your gods-damned self. Plenty of time for saying "I called it" after the game's done.

    To those who didn't get in, it wasn't because your characters weren't awesome. They were. Every single damn one. Choosing between them was excruciating. But in the end, I went with the 5 that had a combination of no pbp experience, currently not in any right now, and how fun I thought their characters would be. But that doesn't mean delete them. Oh no. Keep them on the backburner, you could be a replacement! Or I might have other uses for them down the road.

    Ok, with all that said...The party selection...

    *drumroll*

    hehe...couldn't resist it, the setup was too obvious. :D

    The party is:

    Swanky, Halfling Rogue (Smoove Operator)

    Carrel, Gnome Warlock (WhiteWolf)

    Skarr, Orc Fighter (Steelhawk)

    Korin, Dragonborn Ardent (Kinahto)

    Daus, Changeling Wizard (Aegof)

    Party members: I need token pictures if you haven't already found one. If you missed it, go over the core tenets on the previous page. I will accept sheet changes until our first encounter. This is now the OOC thread. IC thread will be up shortly. Congrats! Savor it!

    Because now I'm the bad guy. :twisted:

    I had hoped, as much as anything else, that Daus and Korin would end up in the game together.

    Of course, slightly worrying to Corran was the design of a bracelet, based on an item usually meant to be used to fight lycanthropes, which Korin had somehow found had the side-effect of temporarily disabling the abilities of shapeshifters, including Changelings...

    oh no
    Lunia’s Bracelet

    This silver bracelet contains charms of stars and moons that hold power against lycanthropes.

    Level: 3

    Property: Treat weapons you wield (including ammunition, thrown weapons, and the like) as silvered (Player’s Handbook, page 220).

    Pfsh, he clearly means that we are finding a mannequin wearing Addergrease leather armor, with a Cape of the Mountebank hanging around its shoulders, with Flaying gloves stuck inside the armor, and Aftershock Shuriken in the gloves, and Catstep boots underneath. That is the only reasonable explanation.

    Honesty, Integrity, Handshakefulness

    Also, kudos to Alkey for finding this thread! I thought it had long been lost to the aether. As a refresher, the party needs a replacement leader! If you submitted one in the original recruitment all the way back in May, and still feel like hopping in, send me a line!

    Hey Farangu,

    I am still on vacation but had submitted it an Artificer via private post--hope you got it.

    If not, let me know. If you want more background/changes, also let me know :)

    thanks!

    Apparently, it is that time again...

    A spot has opened up in our lineup! I need someone to fill it!

    What I'm looking for: Level 5 character. Currently we have an artificer, barbarian, fighter and wizard. The party is pretty well rounded, so create a class that YOU think will fit in well with this mix. 22 point buy, then level up to lvl 5. One magic item of lvl 6, 5 or 4 for free. Picture with your application. Familiarity with the story so far is a plus, but I will be willing to fill in the blanks.

    The current members will be voting on who to include in this campaign. I will only be recruiting for a couple of days, so do please hurry with the creation. The one thing I'm looking for above all else: Durability. Third replacement I've had to find in a year. I want someone who will stick with this.

    And...go, I guess.
