    So, first level, are we doing standard or with feats? Whats the PB or are we rolling for stats? Any other special things we should know about?

    Otherwise, Yay! Ill have my warlock put together later on tonight or tomorrow once i can get to my books.

    I am truly sorry to all those I inconvenienced with my absence, and i hope to make sure i do not repeat it in the future. And note to self, sacrificing KFC in a small apartment is not a good idea.

    yes, it will start at first level. but, i do not do XP, so you will level quickly.
    roll for ability scores, on this thread, please. (4d6, take 3 highest)
    special things- pay attention to how the party is set up, do not have an unbalanced party. and i am only somewhat merciful as a DM.

    I will roll up a cleric. Any particular pantheon or does deity not matter? Might just go Lathander or Pelor. Variant humans allowed (the ones that get a feat and skill and +1 to only 2 stats)?

    Alright, I'm almost scared of rolling :) Always rolled badly in real life. Like I said in the original thread, I'll try to adjust to the party to round it out.

    Have you seen how many spies he has? I mean, I would bet half the ravens feeding on carrion are actually goblin assassins in disguise. And the other half are ravens he taught to be assassins.

    I'm trying to imagine what a character would be like with any attribute score of 3.

    Well done! A 3 is a 1/1296 occurrence in 4d6b3 since it requires you to roll 4 1's in a row. I know some DMs have a rule where a 3 becomes a 19 simply because it is so rare. Hope you can get a reroll!

    Happy with those rolls. Can I use the variant human in the PHB? (+1 to 2 stats, prof in one extra skill, and start with a feat)

    Anyone wanna run a combo background? If someone goes paladin or cleric we could have studied at the same temples under the same god.

    I'd really like a storyline before I start committing to a character so I can get an idea of what I'd like to role play as.

    the storyline will be that you are sort of town guards, but everywhere. you seek to aid the weak, covertly increase the justice of the world, thwart tyrants and dictators with too much power, fight corruption, and just generally kill evil.

    you are all travelling to a city named helotes, each for your own reason.

    everyone, roll a D6, and if your number matches up with someone else, you encounter them on the road.
    if your character was at their home for whatever reason, their master sent them out to fetch something from helotes.

    the three is a 19, but it cannot be raised above 20 with racial bonuses.

    as for the variant rules, if its in the players handbook, you can use it.

    I also have a Character done... though missing a lot of the fluff such as a name or background... is there a specific pantheon the DM wants us to use or are any in the back of the book fine? I don't have a particular preference except for the Life Domain of course.

    okay, so some of you see others heading the same way. do you greet them, or ignore them, or something else?

    the character sheets that have been posted are good.

    Room for a Ranger?

    Specifically:

    Half-Orc DEX-based TWF BM Ranger, using the Spell-less variant from this Wizards article.

    Intent for companion is a Swarm of Rats; summary of 5th level version can be found in the RAW/RAI thread here: http://www.giantitp.com/forums/shows...1&postcount=14.Concensus was concept was RAW-legal (though needed to add a method of healing); the linked version is after some input from the forum, though final version has yet to be critiqued.

    Character is (will be) a blend of Shrek, Cyrano (using this method of fencing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PtLoGBmu5mg), Dr. House, and Willard. Currently in a 5th level campaign that's going slow; figure would be fun to start from 1st level and see how he develops. Conceptualization has been a pet project of mine for the last couple weeks. I have a 5th level sheet done up, but 'twouldn't hard to pare it down to a 1st level sheet.

    Stat Rolls:

    (4d6b3)[16]
    (4d6b3)[18]
    (4d6b3)[15]
    (4d6b3)[8]
    (4d6b3)[12]

    Sweet; just remember, the linked Rat Swarm statblock is for a 5th level ranger; there will be obvious reductions to HP, AC, etc.
