D&D 3.5 Group 2 every other Saturday 5-11

Starting 2/9/2012, we've split our huge group into 2 groups, each heading toward different adventures in the known world of Aereth (although actually, it turned out that Group 2 went somewhere beyond the map to Paul's part of the world). This is Group 2 on alternating Saturdays. On Feb. 3 we finished the final loose ends from the DragonFiend Pact 2nd level module, Dungeon Crawl Classics #11. Our characters are all 1st-3rd level. We may or may not be closed, the group is big enough for now. We may be open to new players in the future; always feel free to ask. But we got so many more new players that we had to make Group 3 for them, on the opposite Saturdays from this Group 2, so new players should check with Group 3, which is an entirely new campaign.

How to join the game: At least catch me at the game (before the game if possible), but ideally, if you can set up your character before the game, that would help. Feel free to discuss among the other players (e.g. via the discussions on this meetup group) to see who's playing what kind of character if that helps you decide what you want to play, and whether you prefer to roll up your own or if you might like me to roll up some optional sample characters to choose from. We now have a good variety of characters covering most of the standard classes, but players come and go, and sometimes even the regulars can't always make it to the game. So new players might check to see what we need, but of course let us know what you like to play. We're also open to other classes (be sure and bring the book they're in). I (your humble DungeonMaster) have been providing an NPC dwarf cleric of Thor for help with healing etc. since otherwise we hadn't always had a cleric show up. Of course if you want to run a cleric, that's fine too, but now you don't have to.

To roll up your character: Roll 24 d6's and arrange 3 of them under each of the standard 6 abilities S D C I W Ch however you want (if you don't have 24 d6's, roll and write down the numbers and arrange the numbers). Make sure to put 3 d6's under each of the 6 standard abilities, then ignore the remaining 6 dice. I'd prefer that all stats be at least 6, but if you really want to, you can have 1 stat below 6, as low as 3, but you'll really need to play that character accordingly ;) This method usually generates very nice numbers but not too ridiculous. If you get a lousy set of numbers, you can roll a 2nd time but then you're stuck with the results. Considering that the average roll should produce 4 6's, 4 5's, etc. to choose from (e.g. [masked]), that should be no problem. Then apply racial adjustments and fill in your character sheet as much as you can and bring it. Use the standard races, classes, money, and item costs in the D&D 3.5 Player's Handbook. I hope everyone has their own PH but at least enough to share without slowing down the game much. If you want to use a class, race, weapon, skill, feat, spell, or other feature in one of the other 3.5 books, then maybe; bring the book so I can check it out. I'll want to see all character sheets and approve them anyway, especially anything from Unearthed Arcana, I don't usually approve much from that book. Generally, no psionics, no poison, no level adjusted races, no gestalt characters, start with all 1st level characters with 0 XP. This may change a bit after we all get to higher levels. In case you pick an unusual race, no adjustments over +2, and all adjustments must add up to 0 or less. I'm not real picky about equipment and encumbrance, just don't get ridiculous.

I'm generally flexible and we're all in this to have fun, and we're off to a good start already :) See ya at our next game!

    Btw what was th XP gained this past Saturday?

      I don't know, I haven't seen a post on it yet. I'd only level up if it was 950 XP or more, but maybe I should prepare a level 3 version just in case.

    Good game but my wife was pretty pissed when I came home haha.

      Bradley, yes, I think keeping your character and just finding a reason for him to switch to group 1 would make the most sense. Ryan, I guess that would be OK too, I'll probably keep Bones active through this module though.

      Well hopefully next Saturday we will finish up with the mission at the library and I can just go my way.

    I can see that this group could use a primary arcane caster (not just secondary like a bard); don't worry, I've already been planning to grow in that direction - with some interesting twists along the way ;)

      Oops I forgot we already have a wizard, anyway what I have in mind will complement a wizard, not compete with him. :)

      March 21, 2013

    • AJ

      Complement or compete, it matters not to me lol, my build is quite deranged already and more casting is always beneficial.

      March 24, 2013

    Lots of fun, looking forward to next game.

    I'm glad the game is still on despite the snow, didn't it get cancelled last time because of snow? Anyway I'm looking forward to it :)

      It was supposed to be a lot worse last time. This doesn't look too bad. No plans on cancelling. Game on.

    More questions about character creation. First lv up is that a role or max value plus constitution modifier? I think starting in e3 it was max for first level. As far as adventuring goes what r required items. Backpack bedroll rations etc. I know some people don't care about things like rations.

      Jeff, I was not ignoring your posts about Group three. You just gave me a lot to look at and its a week until group three plays again. I do have school and other things to do as well. The boffin lycanthrope thing looks a little overpower for now. If you want to play a necromancer, thats fine, but the other part is a bit much. The group does still interact with normal people.

      March 22, 2013

      Sounds like a plan. I appolgize if I sounded rude. I still plan to show up to group 2 this Saturday, I have to get Eric's binder to him anyways.

    Ok I would like to Join a group and have a few questions. For one do any groups have any openings? If so what are the current classes in that group? Are the classes/feats/spells etc limited to the players handbook or all books?

      Tempting but I am already totally pumped about playong this weekend. I can't wait longer lol

      So pumped just rolled my stats. First roll was garbage and took the risk to reroll and averaged 4.7. First roll 3 of my first 6 were 1s lol. In fact I couldn't even mark out half my 2s...

      March 21, 2013

    Do y'all want me to keep trying to keep up with everyone's characters and XP etc. and showing/printing those? If so, I probably need some updates. If not, I can drop it. It doesn't make a lot of sense to do it for this group since I'm not the DM here (and I'm not complaining ;)

    March 15, 2013

    • Gned the G.

      I'll take the XP counts off the member character descriptions since I can no longer keep track of them except for group 1. No biggie.
