Ultimate Dungeon Delve LFG thread

edited September 2009 in PAX Archive
So, it looks like Wizards will be runing the Ultimate Dungeon Delve at PAX. Since I don't have 4 friends going to PAX, and those wanting to 'win' should probably do some planning and/or practice beforehand, I figured I'd start a thread for those of us looking for others to fill out our party.

    edit: Looking for 0 more - we're full!

    I, my wife, and a good friend of ours are looking for two more players to fill out our Dungeon Delve party. We're all 30-something and are looking for reliable, fun types who are looking to seriously compete in the Delve (we're all for having fun but if we miss our 45-minute time limit because you are too busy air-humping while yelling "Say hello to my li'l friend!" every time your hawt, naked barbarian-chick character uses her 10-foot-long greatsword, we will find out if it is possible to hate you to death).

    Looking forward to planning our ultimate party and coming up with some tactics. Bonus points if you are a DnD-playing couple that wants to join in!

    PM on board or email tack.n.gybe (at) gmail if you are interested.

    hi, well this topic was brought up in the tabletop thread but not as an offical thread but my freind tom and I will be attending the delve. as of right now tom is undecided between a warforged paladin or fighter, a drow ranger or a dragonborn cleric. I, myself, have 5 1/2 to choose from i have an eladrin wizard or swordmage, a halfling rogue, an elf ranger two blade (1/2 is same elf ranger only archer build) and a dragonborn sorceror

    It's pretty easy to find people for the delve. Just walk into the room and look for other 'singles'. I did that last year, and had a blast. One of my party members lit me on fire, though. No bueno.

    I started a thread on this a while back trying to find an organized group and it ended up getting moved to the tabletop games where it promptly got lost in the flotsam of other tabletop crap. There were only a couple responses. As far as players I have myself and my little brother. I'm 35 and he's 23, but we definitely know the rules and generally do not airhump... generally. I'm not promising anything. So we are looking for three players and would prefer to get groups set ahead of time rather than right before we play.

    It looks like there are a number of people interested as well, but I'm not sure the best way to setup groups really. TJP, it's your thread, I'll let you figure it out. :)

    /geekery on
    In our quick talks (between my brother and I) our ideal group would be something like this: Swordmage, Warden (yes two defenders), Barbarian, Bard, and then possibly even another leader with a Warlord, though really another Striker would work. The intent is that between both the swordmage and warden you can keep most everything marked, pushing attacks to themselves but having the high AC to keep hit rate now. The swordmage has the added benefit of being able to quickly dispatch minions (via Greenflame Blade), which almost eliminates the need for a controller in the group. For striker our personal favorite is the barbarian who is less dependent on setup to deal damage, unlike the rogue. But really any other striker should do and a ranged would potentially work better.

    in order of my strongest (that i know and play better)
    1 eladrin wizard (Played many times)
    2 eladrin swordmage (he is an expert at teles)
    3 halfling rogue (My very first dnd character was a 3.0 E halfling rogue)
    4 elf ranger(twoblade then second would be archer)
    5 dragonborn sorceror (have not played)

    i will most likly be playing my eladrin wizard and my friend tom is playing a warforged fighter,so any comers are more then welcome. i would really like to have a team before pax so we could discuss tactics, options, and general group topics.


    my ideal team up would be:

    controller (wizard) (war)
    striker (rogue or ranger) (trickster or archer)
    Defender (fighter preferably) (great weapon)
    leader (cleric for obvious reasons) (devoted)
    striker/defender (swordmage) (assualt)

    This sounds incredible. Do they run it at specific times, or can groups form and play throughout the whole weekend?

    im not to sure about that but i do know thats its 45 minute cap per encounter with 6 encounters so thats 4 and 1/2 hours so i would assume there will be set times that way everyone who wants to play can. if you want more details here is the page

    I... I think I want to do this...

    On the linked page though, I don't see which day/time in particular this occurs on during PAX. Can you do it at anytime (even at night), or is there going to be one set time where everyone and their Mom who wants to do it does it?

    I have always used a half-elf warlord, with a warlock encounter spell. So far, it has worked very well for me, and it should do well in this delve if anyone will let me join their group.

    Thanks for the responses for my group - feel free to continue the thread to get together your own group or discuss the event (hopefully we'll get a PAX schedule of events soon).

    I know that it is probably easy enough to get a group together on the spur of the moment, but I think groups that plan ahead and come prepared will last longer - plus the planning is fun for the power-gamer in me!

    Good luck to everyone in the Delve.

    I'd really like to do this, but I don't know that I like the idea of being out of the conference for 4.5 hours to play D&D...

    There's already so much going on, getting to play D&D seems a lot less exciting than seeing awesome games, or once-in-a-lifetime panels, etc.

    hmmm good point. i suppose your right i guess it just depends on how much you like dnd. this is my first pax trip so im unsure about exactly what goes on. i know that im going to do the dnd thing because it was the first reason im going to pax then the rest just got better and better. (i had heard about pax 08 but i didnt really know much about it, then about a month and a half ago or so i saw the UDD and saw that it was in seattle where i saw the word pax, and i said "that looks familier" so i looked it up and decided that im so going and i tell you so far its the best decision i have made in years)


    P.S. for a thread thats about LFG there doesntg seem to be much of looking so much as saying you want to join lol.

    4.5 hours assumes you don't die, or take 45 and a half minutes in the first encounter ;)

    lol somebody in my group just came in with a Bugbear two-weapon ranger with a spiked chain. :P

    you guys might end up hating me now but you will thank me later...you cant play a bugbear anything in this game. if you load up the character builder then select the "manage" tab at the top and then select "campaine settings" tab then select "load settings" and select "RPGA_GeneralCampaigns"
    it will automatically take away all "illegal" parts and allow you to make a fully acceptable charactor. i know it sucks but there has to be a few restrictions right?

    ----im still looking for 3 other people to join my group (eladrin wizard and a warforged fighter)----

    Stink! oh well you can get similar stat bonuses elsewhere, that's just kind of pooey, especially since you're supposed to be able to make anythign that doesn't show up as [H] for houseruled in the character builder. Oh well back to the drawing board :)

    basically all "houserulled" means is out of book context like when you play with a dm who likes to have all your characters have 20 in all stats at level 1 or wants to give you 100000 gp worth of equipment at level 5 rolling your ability scores is considered houserulled etc etc, a bugbear is not considered houseruled because it does have its own statistics block and rullings for it. there were a few things i wanted to do to but they would have been "illegal". but your right you usually can remake your character almost to perfect specifications with other races/class/skills etc. all it is is finding the right combo. i have made quite a few characters myself so i know alot about the inner secret combos you let me know what kind of character you want and i can cook one up for you. i dont blame you if you say no make a new character is rather fun huh. :P

    Is there any way to access the RPGA settings without paying for a month's subscription to Insider? I haven't downloaded the app yet as I'm on my Mac, but it looks like the demo version only lets you make up to a level 3 character, and I can't find any kind of trial subscription option.

    unfortunetly th CB doesnt work on the mac (not 100% sure but out of numorous people saying otherwise its hard to discredit) the trial does only go up to 3 so you would need a subscription anyway because the game level is 6, they will have a limited amount of CB stations at pax but you would most likely have to wait awhile to use it. or you can have someone else make it to your liking of course. and if you end up with a subscription the settings already come with it.

    Same concept, only insert half orc instead of bugbear, the chainfighting ranger seems like an excellent fit to me. two weapon fighting with light blades that deal 2d4 damage, add quick hit bracers, hunters prey, and a couple of feats and I call that a death machine.

    Edit: Hmmm looks like we need a leader pretty badly, healing makes a BIG difference. I wonder if Emod or his brother are thinking of playing one.

    Sure, we're game. I'll PM my email to you two (Dragon and orbdep) so we can discuss more. My plan is to wait until schedules are announced and then try to find a time that would accommodate everyone with regards to not missing... stuff. But we can go over that in email.
