Hi all. We are LF1M for a whirlwind DnD adventure that is currently at level 3, in a generic Points of Lights-like setting minus gods, run by a total newbie DM (that is me). One Another one of our players has gone AWOL and we need a replacement! And that replacement might be you! (You know... if you want. I mean, we're not going to force you or anything. I don't really know how practical that would even be, really, trying to force someone to play a game.... Like, maybe if we had some leverage like we had your first born son hostage somewhere, but that seems kinda gratuitously overboard and also doesn't really make for a good gaming experience. I mean, I guess we could condition his not dying on your playing well and having fun, but I'm not sure that's the sort of thing you can force out of someone, especially when the method of forcing would push someone in the exact opposite direction....)
ANYWAYS, details are as follows, additional questions are welcome, timeline is whenever the hell we finish our current encounter (see below):
Seeking: 1 Defender, to replace missing Minotaur Warden.
Current Party Composition: Human Cosmic Sorceror, Tiefling Telepathic Psion, Half-Elf Hybrid Paladin/Warlock, Human Bravura Warlord
Current Party Task: Escorting a group of human rabble from the abandoned undead slave town of Lorrum in a three-day-ish journey to safety in the living kingdom of Dalequan, with level 2 companion characters, and with awesome rewards if they succeed.
Current Task Status: 2nd day, 1st encounter, eh, it's going okay. Only one civvie died, but so did Caleb....
Character Specifications: Level 3, Defender or Leader, standard point-buy, Versatile Expertise for free, any general background, 2 level 1 items, 2 level 2 items, 1 level 4 item, 75 gp, 1 sp.
Game Details: As per OP here
, but importantly, divine characters will have to have a specific explanation for the persistence of their divine powers in the absence of the gods, who have all mysteriously disappeared many years hence.
Selection: Vote amongst current players. Tiebreak by DM fiat.
Insertion Plan: The party is currently in the middle of a combat, wherein I am replacing the missing player. You would be cycled in after the combat - bonus marks if you can come up with an explanation of where the fuck you just came from.
Deadline: Vote will be held after current combat. I expect it to take maybe a week or so.
Additional: Players must be willing to put up with mistake-prone DM
