D&D 3.5 Long term game accepting all kinds
« on: March 19, 2015, 11:40:10 PM »
This is actually a story I have worked a lot on and I'm hoping to get enough people to run it stably. I'm looking for five or more players. I don't care about the genders as long as we are fairly well balanced. I do care about classes as I want a solid party. That means everyone has a role in the party and for the most part no two people have the exact same role. If two people do have similar roles then you might have to change your character a bit to be different from theirs. We can't have a party of all healers. This will start at level 5 and you pick skills through a 32 point buy. Your starting gold is simply what you get for starting gold from the table in the dungeons masters guide. Also some personal rules of mine as a DM are no gnomes. I just don't like them or how they are usually played by players. Also the addition of a belt fed repeating crossbow. This basically allows you to rapid fire it like a machine gun if you have rapid reload and many shot. You will however take the chance to hit minus same as any other weapon you many shot with. you can only shoot up to 10 individual shots per round and after that is simply a cone of 4 times your usual crossbow damage. The crossbow must be masterwork to be belt fed and you can not shoot more than one shot while moving. Another note is that no race in this campaign is inherently evil unless they were created for evil. So Orcs, goblins, Lizardfolk, ect. Are all just as good as humans. I'm willing to take any extar books you want to use and even home brew stuff after looking it over. I'm using the home brew book of the Tome of fiends. http://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/Tome_of_Fiends_%283.5e_Sourcebook%29 Now for story stuff.

The world was at peace. The two largest countries Brem, run by an alliance of elves dwarves and humans, and Yung, run by an alliance of orcs, goblins, and lizardfolk, Have been at peace for hundreds of years and would trade regularly with one another. That is until something strange happened. One day without reason both countries declared war on each other. it is rumored that it was even on the same day but no one who can confirm that will say. Now the citizens didn't want to fight as many on either side had friends in both countries. However they were quickly shown they had little choice. Both sides started to draft anyone able to fight by force. They fought each other each side committing terrible atrocities. Stories of young men who helped the needy before the war become monsters who rape families were not uncommon. It seemed anyone who donned the military armor of either side wasn't themselves anymore. Civilians notice but say nothing as everyone starts to be drafted even those to weak to fight well. Both countries seem in a frenzy as they spiral into madness. Your characters are mercenaries. the one group not drafted as many are not citizens of any nation. You will be hired though and all of you can only hope you can avoid wearing the armor and maybe figure out what is going on.

Hope people join. Hope you stay to the end. If you have any questions just ask me. :)

Count me in, I like 3.5 and I'm a big fan of the Tome of Fiends as well as the other stuff by its creators (Races of War, Tome of Necromancy, Dungeonomicon). If you're fine with those other works, I'd like to play a Human Monk (Dungeonomicon), who had avoided being drafted into the militia thanks to studying her art in a remote location, and only now has returned with a view to bring peace to the countries.

Background:
Some might argue that living in the mountain ranges is a dull existence, one to be regretted. Those people would be wrong: danger is ever-present, and the only way to survive is to be tough to begin with, or learn very quickly. Having decided to pursue the life of a scholar and scribe, Kyra attended the monastery of the Shining Hand in her teen years, willing to learn their lore. It didn't take long to realise her mistake: that they did not teach great knowledge and wisdom so much as teaching how to punch frost giants in the face. Having made the journey, and having little to her name at this point, she decided to go with it, and discovered she was a natural.

It's altogether possible that there is a real path to enlightenment that can be followed through their teachings, however one of the important lessons was that all knowledge comes through experience, that contemplation and meditation are not as important as effort and action. As such, only a few years later she left, returning to "society". It did not take long to learn that things had changed, that the countries were at war. This was troubling, but she did not have enough knowledge of how to solve it, and so she thought on the important advice: learn through immersion and adversity. As such, determined to bring peace - by beating it into people's heads if need be - Kyra has joined anyone who would accept her aid, out to learn more about what is causing this warfare and how to stop it.

The feats are from: http://dnd-wiki.org/wiki/Races_of_War_%283.5e_Sourcebook%29
Same authors as the Tome of Fiends and the Dungeonomicon.

I'd give my left arm if I could play a Warblade (from Tome of Battle). I love the class, but rarely ever get a chance to actually play it.

Can I throw my hat into this? I'm thinking I'd like to play a Druid if there's a spot open.

I am a complete newb, and if you wouldn't mind helping me walk through it I am VERY VERY VERY interested. Otherwise, I will check back when I have a bit more experience. I COMPLETELY understand how taxing it is to play AND help a new person so if this isn't something you (or anyone reading this) can do, I will have zero bad feelings.


Thank you for your consideration, and feel free to check out my game postings, shorts, or O&Os to make sure you think I fit the game.

Have a lovely evening!

Let's see... things I've wanted to try in 3.5. A malconvoker(Preferably wizard base), An Arcane Heirophant, a Paladin if it's E6, A shifter Vow of poverty druid, or a beguiler/rainbow servant.

With a monk and a warblade so far, the arcane heirophant or the beguiler are likely better choices.

Beguiler even has an excuse for avoiding the draft of "I got lost and stumbled across the hidden jungle temples of the couatls before the war."

Or I'll help you because that guy isn't part of the game yet and hasn't mentioned making a character. Or we will both help you. Either way I'm looking for the character roles of Healer, Skillbot, mage, and ranged focus. So the druid or the mage are likely and looking at the warblade class it's not likely unless I really like your concept.

Fair enough.  I am just a big fan of system games and like teaching people about them.  Is there a max size you are looking for?

I'm a fan of playing skillbots as well as ranged types.

I'd love to get some experience with being apart of a d&d game here on the boards.  It's been some time since I've played, but I can try and run through and make a character for a wizard role in the group if there's still room.

Yeah there is room but it's getting to the point where not all characters who are submitted will be accepted.

Ahhh.. well I'll leave it to the more experience players till things settle down a bit.  It does take a bit of extra time to set up a char for a system game when you don't know the system and writing one up and finding out later that there wasn't room for it would suck lol. 

Good luck with things.

Fair enough. Have a nice day.

As for you kckolbe the max size I'm looking for is 6 unless I get enough to have two parties going. At which point one group may play the anti party with heavily monitored characters as far as creation. Or they would both be parties with the same goal who don't meet until the very end.

Quick question. How do you want health done? Rolls? Take the average?

Either way but if you roll then show me the rolls if they are more than the average.
