Is this correct for the point-buy system:

Stat - Points
18 - 16
17 - 13
16 - 10
15 - 8
14 - 6
13 - 5
12 - 4
11 - 3
10 - 2
9 - 1
8 - 0

and we get 28 points to buy our stats. and since I am a bit rusty at this do we add the racial modifiers before or after buying stats.

After I believe. In NWN they did it before but then they bumped the points to work as if it were two lower. In the 3rd ed Character Generator I have though it calculates racial benefits afterwards.

Right, racial bonus's come after buying the stats. I changed my mind also, I think I will play a halfling swashbuckler or halfling rogue... I dont know if bluenose will allow it but a spellthief looks pretty interesting also.

I see then we be needing a priest and a warrior it seems. Hope some persons join us soon then. Still figuring mine out. Luckily I've got some time.

I can also play a fighter/thief if need be, I can play about anyting besides mages/sorcerers. We have the mage with Celestine so a spellthief would be not needed.

Where is everybody located in the world so I can get a sense of time where everyone is at?

I don't mean to be rude, but if this is going to be the thread for the actual game, perhaps it should go in the rec room or something? It's likely to wind up swamping FR info requests and such...
"Tyranny is a quiet thing at first, a prim and proper lady pursing her lips and shaking her head disapprovingly, asking, well what were you doing (wearing that dress, walking home at that hour, expressing those inappropriate thoughts) anyway? It's subtle and insidious, disguised as reasonable precautions which become more and more oppressive over time, until our lives are defined by the things we must avoid. She's easy enough to agree with, after all, she's only trying to help -- and yet she's one of the most dangerous influences we face, because if she prevails, it puts the raping, robbing, axe-wielding madmen of the world in complete control. Eventually they'll barely need to wield a thing, all they'll have to do is leer menacingly and we fall all over ourselves trying to placate them." -godlizard

I'd allow a spellthief if that's what you wanted to play, in fact I'd allow most classes that aren't too out-of-setting such as Samurai. And no Warlocks please.

I'm in England, and if you want more specific Worcester, England. :) Operating at the moment on British Summer Time rather than GMT.

As for the classes people want to play, pick the one YOU want. Even if the group looks unbalanced I can make some adjustments to the adventure to compensate. :P

Got to go. Football season starts today, so I've a match to attend.

The hour when earth's foundations fled,
Followed their mercenary calling
And took their wages and are dead.

If its hard to fit an elf into the adventure, I don't mind half-elf or human. =) My knowledge on 3.5 rules is limited, so if you don't mind correcting me, I'm happy to post whenever I can.

I'm located in Singapore atm, tiny island in SEA so my timezone is GMT+8. I can come on during weekdays and if required during weekends as well. My schedule however flutuates, so I can post alot at a time or none for a week.

This is my first time playing on a thread. I have never play Pen and paper so if the group can give me a direction on how to start, that'll be great. =)

Awesome avatar Celestine!!! I am in germany (GMT+2 right now will be +1 later when UK switches). You will need to find a copy of the players handbook so you can see how to create a character. I dont have much time right now or I would help ya more. I get off of vacation on the 28th of August and if you wait until then we can jump on an IM and I can help ya out if needed.

Thanks so much, Ronin. =) I can wait till you're on vacation. :D I have a basic idea on what to create, just not too sure on the scope...

Do I have to come out with a backstory for my character, other than stats? So it's 28 points for the 6 stats (STR, CHA, DEX, INT, and so on)? If I'm on a wrong track, please feel free to corect me. thanks.

For buying the stats you get 28 points, see my table a little higher up in this thread. I'm not sure about a backstory about your character but I will be doing something like that but breaking it down into sections and posting it a little at a time as the other characters get to know my character better.

An elf will fit in easily enough, it's just unlikely that they actually come from Barnoldswick. There are several areas nearby they might be from, so the only thing that's likely is that some locals will be surprised to see you.

You don't have to have a backstory, but it's nice if you do. My preference is for it to come out naturally during gameplay, which seems to be what Ronin is doing.

And yes, it's 28 points to buy the stats, then apply your racial modifications (+2 to DEX, -2 to CON for an Elf) afterwards.

Hmm. I do not know of any place where I could buy the PHB. Is it up for download somewhere? Or would other things such as this or this character creater work in place?


The first of those links is ideal, since it's got all the basic D20 rules you need. The second is good too, I used the Pathguy site myself. I'd add two other places - the D20SRD site has the same information as your first link plus a few bits of additional material - and the PCGen site has a free character generation program to download, which is useful if you're not online as much.

If you really want the PHB you could get it through Amazon, but almost everything in it is on the first of your links. You don't actually need anything else, but if you've got questions I'll help in any way I can.
