[Full] D&D 3.5e game - dungeon crawl
« on: April 15, 2009, 05:56:59 AM »
I wanted a 5 person team for this game, it'd be using the 3.5e books that I have.

Taken/reserved:
1. Goalt (assuming she still wants to play)
2. Xillen (assuming he still wants to play)
3. Inkidu
4. Vandren
5. RubySlippers

Charater development info
The characters will start on level 3, for the ability scores, we will be using a point-buy system, with 22 points.

We will be using the PHB 3.5e, this means the races available are:
>Human
>Halfling
>Half-orc
>Dwarf
>Half-elf
>Elf

and the classes available are:
>Barbarian
>Bard
>Cleric
>Druid
>Fighter
>Monk
>Paladin
>Ranger
>Rogue
>Sorcerer
>Wizard

If you do make a character sheet, You should use http://www.myth-weavers.com/
It doesn't take long to set an account up, does most of the calculations for you, and makes it easier for me to understand. Just link me the url of the character and I'll have a looksee. :P


I reserve the right to refuse any character I see fit, for any reason I wish, however I will probably not use this power unless I deem it necessary (i.e. obvious made up stat rolls, stuff like that).
I would like to thank Ryu, fragile, chris, myrland many others for putting up with my D&D stuff

1 rank usually means 1 skill point, however if it isn't a class skill, 1 costs 2 points.

Oh, what, are you talking about skills or stats?
Stats are the roll 4d6, skills you have a specific number for.

For stats, you roll 4d6, (dropping the lowest number and recording that number) 6 times. Once you've got six, you assign them to any of the six stats; STR - strength, WIS - wisdom, INT - intelegence, CHA - charisma, DEX - dexterity, or CON - consistution.

Sorry to be a bother but let me make sure I've got this right.

4d6s is four six-sided dice.

Drop the lowest value leaving me with three number values.

Then do it five more times. dropping the lowest value.

So I have 18 numbers (3 x 6 rolls)

Then those 18 numbers are supposed to be placed into six attributes?

You roll four six sided dice, and drop the lowest dice number of that roll, making a note of the result.
So if you rolled 3, 5, 6, and 4, you would drop 3, and then total the rest of the numbers, making a score of 15.

There are 6 abilities in total, meaning you have to do the above 6 times.
So at the end you would have 6 different numbers (so you might have 9, 18, 15, 4, 6, 7 as an example), you place each number onto an ability as you see fit (so you could put 18 on strength, 4 on wisdom, 7 on charisma until all the numbers have been used up.)

That makes more sense.
So do I send the rolls to you or should I do them myself?

You should do them yourself, it's your character after all.

Once you've done it, I'd love it if you could create an account on here - http://www.myth-weavers.com/  and put the characters stuff in it (like this: http://www.myth-weavers.com/sheetview.php?sheetid=120201) it does all the calculations for you, except for racial / class bonuses, but if you need any help with that, just ask.

To find out Hp, you roll the hit die.
For sorcerer and wizards, they use a four sided dice.
For bards and rogues, they use a six sided dice.
For Clerics, druids, monks and rangers they use an eight sided dice.
For fighters and paladins they use a ten sided dice.
And for a barbarian, s/he uses a twelve sided dice.

But for half-elves.
> Immunity to sleep spells, and other similar magical effects
> +2 racial bonus on saving throws against enchantment spells or effects
> Low light vision - half-elves can see twice as far as humans in starlight, moonlight, torchlight (general poor illumination).
> +1 racial bonus on listen, search and spot checks
> +2 racial bonus on Diplomacy and Gather Information checks.
> Automatic languages: Common and elven

I realised I made a mistake, thankfully it wasn't too big of one as the stats stay the same.

You need to choose the skills your character has.
To determine how many skill points a character gets at leve one, you usually add a specific number for the class with the intelegence modifier then times it by four. So a ranger would be (6 + int mod) x 4.
For every level above level one, it is that specific class number added to the intelegence modifier, so 6 + int for ranger.

So you'd have to add 6 to 1(your int mod), then times it by 4 to get your starting skill points.
To get your character to level 2 skill points, you add 6 plus your int mod (1) to the previous number.
And to get your character to level 3 skill points, you add 6 plus your int mod again to the previous number.

Once you've worked out how many skill points you have, you can spend them to get ranks in the skills. :D
There are two types of skills per class; class skills, and cross-class skills, the only difference being it costs 2 skill points to get 1 rank in cross class skills, and 1 skill to get 1 rank in class skills.

http://www.d20srd.org/srd/Classes/ranger.htm <- Contains class skills for a ranger
http://www.d20srd.org/indexes/skills.htm <- Contains all skills for d&d 3.5

You start with 2700 gp (you'll have to deduct weapons and armor and the like from that) , which you can spend on whatever you want.
http://www.d20srd.org/indexes/magicItems.htm That's a list of magic items, just incase you want to equip your character with some of those.

Aside from that I can't think of anything else. xD

Ok, I'm intrigued.   The last time I played D&D it was AD&D 2nd ed. (ok, back in 1997).  I've picked up the basic 3.5 stuff thanks to nostalgia and a student.  So . . . I guess I'm saying I'd be interested in joining up.  If you don't mind someone very familiar with AD&D 1st/2nd ed. and new to 3.5.  :)

Probably a Human or Half-Elf Cleric/Wizard (2/1)

BTW: I've found this to be a helpful online character creation site: http://www.pathguy.com/cg35.htm

Need to manually type in your Base Attack Bonus (+3) and Base Saving Throws (F = +3, R = +3, W = +1)

Also, put the Ring of Protection bonus in the AC Bonus part (I'm guessing +1 since those cost 2,000 gp)

Personally, I use http://www.wizards.com/dnd/dice/dice.htm to roll dice, if not that then I'll do it irl.
I don't know of any other dice roller. xD
I think I'll use this one. So as long as someone tells me what to roll I should be okay.

They're about equal in AC, but the ranger's got a better attack bonus and damage.  The HP came from 8 + 7 + 3 + CON bonus (+1/lvl).  And I got a bit lucky on the dice rolls.  I think I focused the skill points a bit more and went for smaller ticket magic items too.  So Durias can "do" less in terms of training, in some respects.

Did you include CON bonus for HP?

There's no store button, so I can't prove to you that I rolled that. Might as well roll with my actual dice.

There's a dieroller built into the forum, which has a store button, so the DM can check if the players are playing fair.

But yeah, you can roll for my dice IRL :)


Inkidu> Don't forget that you get max HP for your first level instead of rolling it.

As for the skills, it might be easier to see it like this:

Your class gives a number of skills per level.
You add your Intelligence modofier to this value.
You add 1 to this value if you are a Human.
The end value is your "skills per level" value.

Simple method:
Pick a number of skills equal to your "skills per level" value.
You have <your level + 3> ranks in each class skill you picked.
You have half of that (rounded down) in each cross class skill you picked.

Advanced method:
Multiply "skills per level" by <your level + 3> to get your total amount of skillpoints.
Spend them on skills as you desire, but no more than <your level + 3> skillpoints per skill.
Your ranks in class skills are equal to the number of skillpoints spent.
Your ranks in crossclass skills are equal to half the number of skillpoints spent (rounded down).

Of course, all the above assumes you're a singleclass. It get's a little more complex for multiclass.

Going over Inkidu's character sheet:

14 hit points means you rolled a 1 and a 2? (Your total HP should be 8+1 + 1d8+1 + 1d8+1 = 2d8 + 11)

Skillpoints:
6 (class) + 1 (int) = 7/level, for a total of 42. I seem to count 43 skillpoints.

You need to remove 1 skillpoint. You might also consider focussing your skillpoint more. A lot of skills that have 5 or more ranks give a +2 bonus to one or more other skills. In addition, some of your class abilities depend on your Survival and Handle Animal skills, so you might make sure you have enough ranks in there.

Lastly, some skills, such as Knowledge and Open Lock are trained only. You can only use them if you have at least 1 rank in them.

Looking at the character sheets:

Inki - the composite longbows range is 110 ft. :P
Aside from that, I can't see anything else that needs to be changed.

Van - The daggers damage is soley 1d4 I believe, the 1d3 is for small sized characters (I think), and 1d4 is medium sized, the same with the mace (medium = 1d8)
And what class did you choose first? Just making sure the skill points are correct and all that. :P

Should this be moved to another thread? xD

Inki - +3 con bonus? Reading over the half-elf and ranger pages I can't see that, but I might be mistaken.

It's a  +1 bonus per level retrospective, and if I had to take a guess it's because of my one +1 in constitution. This is to my HP should have made that clear. Maybe I should just re-roll my Hits

Yep.  I put the small / medium as a reminder for myself.

Cleric goes first, there's enough crossover of class skills that only the Knowledges (Arcana, Local, and History) should be affected.

So the max he'd be able to get is 27 hitpoints I believe, and the lowest would be 14.

rolling 1 and 1 would give 8+1, 1+1, 1+1 = 13 hp.

rolling 8 and 8 would give 8+1, 8+1, 8+1 = 27 hp.

And yes, it's con modifier (+1) per level, so +3 total.

I also notice a +2 bonus to decipher script. Dunno where it comes from. The bonuses from Agile, and the racial bonus for Sense Motive is missing.

Stats for my character Thistlerose, the halfling "um" adventureress thats it sounds nice and pro-fessional.

These don't include racial adjustments.
STR 16, DEX 15, CON 15, INT 17, WIS 16, CHA 12

So her stats are Str 14, Dex 17, Con 15, Int 17, Wis 16, Cha 12 (adjusted) and I will note I rolled and kept these as they came up on the dice roller.

Will be a classic burglar sort of rogue, bluffing and the like isn't her forte' anyway. So how are you doing hit points and money?

Maximum at Level 1 6 Hit Points
Rolled for the next two levels and added 6 Hit Points for Con

So 2d6+12. Simple.

Dunno.  I just slapped together a pretty good Half-Orc fighter with those stats in about 5 minutes.  Add 2700 gp of gear . . . Full Plate and Heavy Shield (+10 armor) with a little under 1200 left over.  With the 17 in Dex, that's a 23 AC.  (Assuming Human, it's not so good, but depending on race it could be made to work well.)

Just for note, the one's Ruby rolled up come to 53 in point-buy.  And Inkidu's rolled up to 44 in point-buy.

I feel that it would be in the best interests of players if we swapped to a point-buy system instead.
We'll be using 22 points.
For anyone who doesn't know, one point is worth one ability level, so you could have a generic character in all abilities, or a high-leveled character in one or two abilities, and less so in all others.
Hopefully this will nullify most of the problems so far.

So a straight one-to-one?  Or the DMG scale?

For anyone who doesn't know, one point is worth one ability level, so you could have a generic character in all abilities, or a high-leveled character in one or two abilities, and less so in all others.
Hopefully this will nullify most of the problems so far.

And best interests for who seems most of us like the stats we have and characters. If I rolled worse I would have kept the stats and did the best I can but since my character is great its not in my best interest to drop her great stats to that. I even ran a character that lasted awhile with a total stat bonus of -3, as in of all six stats they totaled -3.

9 11 12 13 14 17 are very decent stats.

It's more about the difference in stats than the stats themselves. It's no fun having players with 18's and 17's, while others are running around with 13's. 13's on themselves are not the problem.

Also don't link Combi's comment to my stats directly. It's her decision, not mine (I personally wouldn't make such a drastic change after starting).

Anyhow, if Combi insists on using pointbuy, it works like this. You have a certain number of points (Combi seemed to go for low-powered so 22 points total). You use those 22 points to buy 6 scores, and assign each score to one ability stat of your choice. Apply racial modifiers afterwards.

Score 8 costs 0 points.
Score 9 costs 1 point.
Score 10 costs 2 points.
Score 11 costs 3 points.
Score 12 costs 4 points.
Score 13 costs 5 points.
Score 14 costs 6 points. (So up to here it's reasonably cheap)
Score 15 costs 8 points.
Score 16 costs 10 points.
Score 17 costs 13 points.
Score 18 costs 16 points.

She raised the total to 42 as 22 was far too low.

They shouldn't be a problem in the first two sentences scenario either, with some creative usage and racial modification.  I've played in that role myself in the past and it's worked out nicely and been fun.  But that's neither here nor there anymore.

Actually, it's directly tied to the complaints.  And indirectly tied to them in that, if the complaints weren't there, the change wouldn't have occurred.

Now, personally, I was happy with the luck that I had.  But that's ok because I like point buy (hey, I'm a GURPS guy by preference and the lack of control in a straight roll was always one of my problems with AD&D, along with classes and alignment) and I'm happy with the redone stuff for the character.

Anyway . . .

Now I'm confused. Is it 22 or 42 points? :P Durias' character seems to be using 38 points :P

So we have Durias as the arcanist, Inkidu as the ranged attacker, Ruby as the rogue, which leaves Goalt and myself. I'll probably go for something with at least some healing capabilities (Cleric or Paladin), unless goalt goes for that.

I'm not sure what happened to the stats on your character sheet, but Everett was at 44 points (by point buy), which means that modification to 42 points is simple.  Basically two of his stats rated 14 or lower would drop one level, one rated 14 or lower would drop two levels, or a stat rated 15 or 16 would drop one level.

In Point Buy, all attributes start at 8 and go up from there on a scale that both Xillen and I have posted here.  (Replies #93 and #88)

I'm not fond of point buy, I've done it, but am a purist I like not knowing what I'm getting until I get them. Most of the time I roll in order and keep the stats its just fun to have a character that is like a normal person gifts and weaknesses given to one by nature. Then trying to find your place in the world.

Still its ok I suppose. Lets see stats for my new halfling rogue - Str 12, Dex 20, Con 12, Int 14, Wis 14, Cha 12.

It was a 42 point buy?  ???

Ruby, assuming Str 14, Dex 18 pre racials, that comes down to 42 points.

Inkidu, I'm not sure what you all changed around, but you're now at 52 points. You'll have to lower some scores.

I'll see if I can bug Goalt on IRC tonight, so I can check on her class :)

I fixed it I've plugged it into a calculator I checked the numbers seven times. From eight the points I spent add up to forty two. Now I'm off to add my new con bonus to my hit.

It's not a 1:1 ratio. A 14 costs 6 points indeed, but a 16 costs 10 points, even though it's only 8 higher than 8.

16's and especially 18's cost more, because those really are exceptional stats, and you need to sacrofice a bit to get to them.

Heh, sorry, yeah, they're right, I misread it.

1 point is 9
2 points are 10
3 points are 11
4 points are 12 on the ability score.

That seems 1:1 to me if you start at eight.

    9                                  1

    18                               16

Appearance:
When riding around the countryside or whenever she feels a fight is at hand, Zoe goes around fully clad in her armor, sword and shield ready at her sides. Her thick brown hair is kept short to prevent it being in the way of combat. The only ornament she wears is a silver pendant hanging on her chest, representing a bolt of lightning, to honor her deity and the temple that raised her.
In calmer times, usually when she strolls around town, she'll leave her armor, weaponry and most of her equipment at home, and goes dressed in a single white robe, lacking any kind of ornaments. Occasionally, when the light of the sun shines through the thin fabric, a lucky bystander could receive a revealing view of her posture.

Background:
Zoe became an orphan at a young age when her hometown was brutally attacked by orcs, after which she was taken in and raised by priests of Heironeous. Growing up trained to do good, while at the same time building up a hatred to the creatures that assaulted her home village. As Zoe grew up, she was gifted with both the lessons of the priests in the channeling of god's power and of the militia in the training at arms and horseback riding. When she considered she was ready, Zoe rode out on a crusade to vanquish evil, but discovered the world wasn't nearly as black and white as she thought it would be in her sheltered home of the temple of Heironeous.

Personally, I use http://www.wizards.com/dnd/dice/dice.htm to roll dice, if not that then I'll do it irl.
I don't know of any other dice roller. xD
