This definitely sounds interesting! Having never played D&D before, I'm glad characters actually get to start out as novices, and grow into their abilities. I'm thinking of playing a human of some sort, and not being well versed in writing out action scenes, I was thinking I might want to concentrate on someone less battle focused, but that could still contribute to the party and help in some way. I was thinking cleric, which I think is the healing class, but we've already got one, so I'll have to think of something else. I'll take a look at the OOC thread too, and try to catch up on the story so far, and maybe something there weill strike my fancy.
