    so did i do good for a person whos understanding of d&d is limited to the PA podcasts

    Looks pretty solid to me. Nothing seems missing and this guy will definitely succeed at hitting things often and hard, which is the job of a striker. Only thing to keep in mind is that with a low AC you're going to get hit a lot as well. Sort of like a heavyweight with a glass jaw.

    Okay cool. Would + to saving throws help? because that's what you're doing when you're KOed, right?

    Also since i posted this I switched out a feat (perserverance?) for an executioners axe so i ought to hit a bit harder.

    So... Sunday, mid afternoon, in Jersey City at nexus's abode.

    I will be running a Neverwinter Campaign, characters will be level 1 to start.

    We are starting with BASICS, folks; there are a couple of folks new to the game, and the setting seems like the perfect place to set a good D&D tone.

    Nexus will determine how many people he is happy to host. I have run a 12 person table before, but that was insane and I doubt I will want to do that again. Probably 6-7 people, with Nexus, Gooey, Yami and TomeWyrm confirmed as in.

    If this goes well, I will run this game for 4-6 sessions over the next couple months as we find time to line up.

    Looking forward to it!

    His place isn't too hard to reach. I'm also leaving from Brooklyn, and it usually takes me around an hour to get from my apartment to his, depending on how the trains are feeling that day.

    Cool. I'm in for this Sunday. Should I roll my character prior to the session? I'm running my PF game this Friday, so I probably won't have time to draft anything until Saturday. Does this work for you, syndalis?

    To give some background, I've never played 4e (though I have looked at the books). However, I played 3.0 -> 3.5 -> PF (and many other gaming systems) so I know my way around the gaming table.

    Let me know if there's room.

  • YamiNoSenshiYamiNoSenshi A point called Z In the complex planeRegistered User regular
    Oh, right, should I pick up any source books or material before I show up? I've gamed in various systems so I'm familiar with them but I don't own any of the books. I can get the basic ones easily. Or do I just need my dice bag and all the nerdery I can carry?

    Damn it, it's fucking noon. I demand to know if Yami shit on a desk yet.

    Watch me sometimes stream games.

    So, I just found out I *HAVE* to attend a memorial service on Sept 11th. It runs from noon to 4pm. This throws a big wrench into my game running plans.

    Is Saturday afternoon from 2-6pm or so manageable for you folks? If not, it may be a couple weeks before we can pull this together.

    As for you, @YamiNoSenshi - you don't NEED to buy anything if someone nearby has a Player's Handbook foor you to borrow. If not, that is the only book that needs to be bought.

    I plan on showing up with a ton of material if people want to build a more Forgotten-Realms centric character and don't have access to the books.

    4th edition. Good news is, you don't need dice to make your character, so even just access to the PDF of the character creation rules is enough.

    @Gooey - think of a northern animal, like an Elk, Wolf, etc. - Gonna totally make your barbarian clan, and they all have animal spirits as a rule.

    RAD

    Hmm....A grizzly bear seems appropriate for a giant axe wielding barbarian. Wolves seem more like swordish to me and elk would be a spear. A seal would be a club/hammer. For obvious reasons.

    I can't think of any other northern animals.

    But grizzly bear. Totally.

    yeah, I'm going to line up with you and nexus to make sure you have what you need to build a character.

    Think in MMO terms; do you want to be a striker, a tank, a controller, a healer, a buffbot? Some combination of these things?

    Lots of good options.

    Gyah! This weekend is just not being cooperative with me at all. I can't do Sunday now, as it turns out. Saturday is now a possibility, though...probably? I'm so confused right now. Has a day been confirmed for D&D?

    Also I'm afraid I have to pass on Jersey tonight. This weekend is looking to be super wonky schedule-wise.

    Okay, so Saturday. Again.

    I want to run this in a way that everyone can play who wants to... and this gives me the chance to get to nexus' abode tonight to play some Chaos, help make him a character, and get set up to run tomorrow.

    Yami, if you can arrive before 2pm... like, 30 minutes to an hour before, we can crank out a character for you on nexus' computer.

    This will be the last schedule change. I promise. Cross my freakin' heart.
