    Paragon, Epic, Heroic, whatever... I'd love to play Eberron!

    I've only played Heroic tier so far, and would be happy to do the mid-levels of heroic or Paragon or start at 1st... I'm not picky. As long as I'm not in a party full of passive-agressive infighters, I don't care. (Not to say there can't be one or two, just please not 5 of them :D)

    Since this is the recruitment post, here's my concept, short and simple. I run two games here. I've been in two pbp games here. I was in your maptools games a while back. I like bard-Callum better then cleric-Callum so here's a different character:

    Ziff "Zee-zee" Zoorander (Real name: Roe)
    "They call mee Zee-zee for short."

    Ziff is a traveling magician of some renown in his own head. He specializes in birthdays for noble brats. Roe is a spy hiding in plain sight. He specializes in birthdays for noble brats. May also be a male escort.

    Three options for development: "Dual dagger wielding chaos sorcerer", "Dual wand wielding illusionist wizard", "Dual rod wielding fey pact warlock." Leaning toward the Wizard though just to work in the prestidigitation more.

    Oh yeah, and do you have a rule about how many concepts we can post? Because I have a good idea for another character that I'd really like to make.

    I really like the invoker that someone posted. That was righteous....

    3clipse, is your dwarf going to be dual wield or archer? I'm curious because I am running a Dwarf ranger in another game & had a hard time with him.

    His powers seemed weaker in combat than my allies--at-will wise--I've since re-trained Hit & Run (which I never needed) for Careful Strike--I'm thinking of him as a Striker heavy on defender. Great HP, mediocre to-hit & lower damage output.

    It must be easier for races like Elves with their fancy swords... but with that being said, in terms of character, I really like playing the Dwarf Ranger. he has a good assortment of skills & is very useful outside of combat.

    I don't really have a limit on concepts or anything no.

    I expect to actually organize things by the weekend.

    streever - Dual wield (it has that on the character sheet, sorry). With Dwarven Weapon Training and the right weapons (like 2x Craghammers), Twin Strike can put out 10-20 damage/turn at 1st level, which is pretty nasty. Even with only a modest con you can get 30+ HP too, since Twin-Blade Style gives you Toughness as a bonus feat.

    The only way to really have a Dwarf ranger work is to give them a couple hammers or axes, because they can get really nice +damage with them.


    'kay, I'll probably be posting another one up at some point today too.

    Unlikely to be 1st level I think, but definitely could be Heroic tier still.

    The process is going to be: read fluff, think of awesome story for campaign riddled with tropes, figure out where it fits in level-wise, inform the thread!

    Excellent. That's my only pet peeve about the games on here; most of them start at level 1: the most boring of all D&D levels. :P

    At least 4E at level 1 is better than 3E. 3E 1st level was like, fight 2 monsters, and then sleep because everyone had to expend all their powers, and the wizard dies.

    Sadly, yes, and I somehow always managed to play with DMs who insisted we started at level 1 until college, at which point I met DMs who wouldn't start below level 3.

    I like it!! For a long term campaign at least... it's nice to really "meet" your companions & start up together. With that being said, for an adventure, I think it's much more exciting to start at 2 or 4...

    There's no law that says you can't meet up for the first time if you're above level 1. You could have just been doing your own thing, your friends flaked on you (or got eaten :)), and you need a new crew.

    The Eberron Adventurer's Guide doesn't say, and it only has a few deities. If Inf has a problem with her being my deity I can totally change gods and change my background to reflect it, haha.

    It would be BAD ASS if your avenger was doing the will of the Undying court...

    very similar... you'd still hate undead with a passion.

    It'd be a lot like worshipping the Raven queen, only you could be friendlier :D Just as grim though. Imagine the possibilities.....!

    It's true Cytorak, you can even say they've always been together--I just like that feel of progressing from those painful early days to bigger & better things. I also really enjoy the limitations of level 1--

    I'm like that in pretty much any game I play--I always really enjoy the harder early days!

    General rule of thumb. Unless stated otherwise, basic core game stuff doesn't exist in a campaign setting.

    Good to remember =P

    Inf do you want me to just go ahead and change the Avenger's backstory to one of the Eberron deities now? If I do, it will be to the Undying Court (even fits with where he's from!!!!), but will be mostly the same in terms of special conception/etc.

    I like the character concept! and my note to the DM (feel free to mess with the background--heck, even bring my rival Cullen to life) is fair game to everyone--if it would help advance the story, make it more fun, feel free to build off of any of my character's hooks or background nonsense.

    I really like (for instance) the way that Arividia's adventurer's planned out their aquaintance, using each other's backgrounds/the world to come up with interesting hooks.

    And I think you nailed my character on the head--he'll come along, because he's suspicious, but he's not the one disarming traps or punching out the bad guys. He's the one yelling, "DON'T DAMAGE THE ARTIFACT!" in the background :)
