[BFRPG] Sanctuary of Swordhaven
« on: November 17, 2007, 03:24:55 PM »
Come to a time and lands where magic dwells, where sword and skill could forge ones destiny, after the sinking of Atlantis and the rise of the Golden Empire on the sands of the Great Desert, come now to a time of High Adventure

Yes finally ready and seeking brave players to run mighty adventurers ,maybe someday, in this scaled back campaign using the Basic Fantasy RPG rules.

Rules are available FREE @ www.basicfantasy.org

Ok the thread is at Light Small Games at the [BFRPG] Sanctuary of Swordhaven thread to start, since your new arrivals your in the Dock Quarter, at a Tavern/Inn/Brothel called the Scarlet Lantern, and its a popular place to find work.

Character Creation:

-1st Level Characters
-Core Rules
-Half-Races Optional Races are Allowed (half-elves and half-orcs, latter are prone to problems)
-Elves must be from either the Free Islands (a group of islands that have tribes of elves in small groups OR the island of Misthome the main central power of elves in the area closes to Swordhaven)- Shadow Elves a race of elves in the Northern regions are off limits to PC's. Reason for this the darkish skinned elves think elves are the most beautiful of the humanoid races and kill anyone not fitting the refined ideals of elven perfection, fay and some other creatures are exceptions since they are sacred to their religion.
-Roll 3d6 IN ORDER and after they are assigned you may swap two around with each other, do not re-roll ones. If you do roll two or three 1's I will permit a re-roll once for the stat. Then you can swap stats. You must get my ok first.
-You get maximum hit points- I'm feeling generous.
-You get the maximum starting gold- my generosity overfloweth.

That's it no alignments, no other rules to make the game overly complicated and well since you need a 9 to meet the needs of all classes I'm sure you can meet the needs of at least one.

Post your sheet under [BFRPG] Sanctuary of Swordhaven after the stats are rolled here.

Dice roller for states here @ www.invisiblecastle.com note each stat in the notes and post each roll here, then if you need to re-roll I'll ok it, then swap them. If your Con is under a 9, make it a 9, I maybe a rules stickler in spots will not screw you over like that. That stat cannot be moved in this case.

Optional Rules in Use:
Combat Options (Fighter Weapon Proficiencies and Two-Weapon Fighting)

You can swap two stats around if you swap the 6 or 7 with the Con score of 10, the Charisma or Wisdom will be 10 and the Con automatically goes to 9 as per the house rule. A little trick if you missed it.

Nice stats by the way he is a sneaky little bastard. lol

I will set-up a character post thread when we get more players. This is one case I need a decent number alone your going to end up dead.

I need at least one fighter, one cleric and one magic-user and an extra fighter would not hurt.

I think I'll keep him as-is, actually  :)  But thanks for the reminder.
Am strongly tempted to use my new Santa's Elf name for this character, out of sheer perverse cussedness.

Update...
As Sunny Sugar-Socks is now in use in another thread, I'm going to fall back on a Discworld naming convention commonly associated with Dwarves instead.

This will doubtlessly be mildly ironic, considering my Halfling Thief has a personality like sandpaper to go with his oh-so-terribly cheerful name.  :P

That assumes that anyone else decides to join the party, of course.

*poke*poke*

Where's everybody else?  Surely I cannot be the only one here interested in a little old-fashioned style dungeon crawl...

Considering a nice 'traditional' name for Mister Shorty.  If I could remember my Hobbit name, I'd use that...

It has been ages since I have played a game like this one. I think I would like to join, although Madpanda being in the other games I have shown interest in is going to start thinking I am stalking him :P

Anyway, I will try and submit stats soon :)

Making the character is always the most difficult part for me :P

Well the thread is there do your characters and post them here, rules are on top, we have a "skulky fighter" aka a thief. We can really use a fighter or two, a magic-user and a cleric. This is not the game not to have one of each class in it. Plus another fighter. So I need at least an elven fighter/magic-user and a cleric, and then we can start. More the merrier I'm taking up to five characters.

You can swap two stats around, like if strength is 5 and intelligence is 16 you can swap them. And regardless Con is below a 9 will be 9.

Not bad you may swap two stats if you like. But looks solid for everything except a thief. You may want to swap the Dex for Intelligence or Charisma if a pure fighter to negate the penalty. If an elven fighter/magic-user I suggest swap the Charisma for Dexterity. You have nice options.

Your is cute too.  :-* (hug)

I wasn't sure if the animation would work it doesn't on another site, its much more stimulating in action.

And by the way your welcome to join the game we need a cleric, a magic-user would be nice but the cleric is kind of more important.

Not really there is a Temple in the city but its kind of nebulous, all the clerics train there I always figured it was more a place to go for clerical things. Evil clerics have their own cults and covens and the like.

DEX   4,1,3  8

Would swapping the con and str do better for basic human tank fighter?

Hmm.  No specific deity?  This would be a BAD time to bring back Happy Bob, the Smiling Cleric...  :) :) :)

P2P advice--switching the scores would make you a harder hitter at the cost of 1 hp a level, I think.  I'd do it...

I'm sorry, but I going to have to drop out after all. I have overloaded my schedule a little, and I am not sure I can keep up. If my schedule clears up, and if you would reconsider me at another time, this game still is near the top of the ones that interest me. I will be reading it :)

Ok, checking fwith the Dm before I get the rest of the stats together.

I would like to swap the rolls for STR and CON.

Starting gold you said was max, the standard prices in the book are what we use to equip?

And one more question anything specfic in the for the ability/chance to dual wield?
