I'm interested although i must say that i'm not very familiar with 3.5e so i will have to make my studies. I hope it's not a trouble to you, mostly of my long pen and paper experience was with rules that i have created but i will try my best.
-We're fine with that. I'm pretty good about mechanics, I just don't manage them well. Feel free to ask me or Iressi if you have questions and I'll PM you some links to some pretty good sources of information...
That puts us at 4/6 who are interested in playing so I suppose I'll go ahead and put out some more substantial info on the town for you.
-Iressi's Creation Rules:
-Sources: We will be using Pathfinder beta characters for races and classes. The skills and feats are a little different so you will want to take a look, but they're not so
different that anyone who has done 3.5 should have trouble adapting. The download of the beta is available for free through the link I gave in the initial post.
-Using Pathfinder creation means that only the core classes will be available for play: Barbarian, Bard, Cleric, Ranger, Rogue, Fighter, Sorcerer, Wizard, Paladin, Monk and Druid.
-I'll see about getting him to see about posting an OOC thread for us to talk about party makeup / balance, etc. In this campaign it's fairly important to have a cookie cutter party with an extra or two... So Tank, Damage-Dealer, Trap-Finder/Skill Monkey, Healer.
-Unless someone else shows an interest in the next couple days I will make an 'PNPC' party character who fills any roles that no one else seems to want to.
-More detailed information on Cauldron:
-Last bastion of civilization in the south.
-Surrounded by jungle, there are dinosaurs in the wild.
-Long, hard history involving much warfare. Battles between Demon and Man in ancient times were fought but no such battles have occurred for hundreds of years.
-Population of 7,500 adults: 79% human, 9% halfling, 5% gnome, 3 dwarf, 2% elf, 1% half-elf, 1% half-orc.
-Racial tensions are as you might expect from a diverse racial make-up with no blatant bias towards any one race.
-The mayor himself is a half-el, one of the least-present races in the city.
-Fairly small presence of nobility (does not mean a player cannot be noble).
-Unlike the kingdoms in the north nobility is born of money rather than lineage. However, the nobles of Cauldron claim to have both.
-Cauldron is an oligarchy with a single town mayor and a town council.
-Many religions are present in Cauldron due to its varied population. However the chief among them are Weejas, then Kord, St Cuthburt, and finally Pelor.
-There are thieve's guilds in Cauldron. The most recent addition and lately the most visible is 'The Last Laugh'.
-Most prominent social caste is working-class commoner, though there is a presence of skilled workers as well as the small nobility mentioned above.
That is all pretty much straight from Iressi through my typing. =p I'm sure he'll give more detail in the OOC board, but it gives you something to start with.
