Harumpfh!
I *hardly* think that a lady of my station would be bothered to seduce one as hairy and foul smelling as a minotaur! I was merely making your acquaintance out of politeness! (and it never hurts to have a brute of a minotaur on your side when danger comes calling!)

They are wrong.

The world IS Hell! Always has been, always will be; except perhaps for the five percent or so of the population who can afford differently.

And, if one must reside in Hell, it is far better to do it as a minion of the Devil than as a member of the damned.

@ Minotaur

A minotaur character might be playable, depending mostly on the level of the module I end up running. At low levels a minotaur is too powerful for the rest of the party, but if I run say Tomb of Horrors with high level characters you'd fit in well.


I would be quite happy to start low, I am sure that SOMETHING could be worked out. As my becoming a Minotaur IRL is currently going nowhere, I would LOVE the chance to become one for an adventure or two.

Hey, count me in too.

I'll go with 3rd edition and either mid level or high levels. Not so keen on low levels. I don't mind playing any class, but preferable not a mage class again. I want to try something else, I could probably play a thief class or fill in the gaps.

I'd be happy if you grabbed the Greyhawk and Blackmoor booklets, and made it up as you go along - I forgot how much fun it is to *play* rather than DM or simply browse. I am looking forward to trying CA this summer, when teaching duties are over and I can live vicariously through my characters...

I would enjoy a walk on the slightly darker side, I think. 2E assassin, 2E wizard if needed (but it looks like cleric and wizard are covered), some of the more... neutral viewpoints. I wouldn't mind a Vlad Taltos type for a change, regardless of ruleset. I am less familiar with 3E and 3.5E rulesets, but will happily learn (roleplaying is much morre than the ruleset anyways - the rules just make it more fun, and less trouble [heh - right] for the DM)!

Provisionally I have the following people are interested in playing:

Dirt Squirrel edit: Apologies, there's a Dust Squirrel on another board I visit
CMorgan
Minotaur-in-Maze
Dark-Mage
Solstice
Menelanna
Celestine
Kellen

The only two who've expressed an opinion from this group on the rules system are Kellen and Celestine, who both prefer 3rd edition. Unless there's strenuous objections that's what I'll use. Most people seem to want a mid-level game, or aren't particularly concerned, so that's what I'll try.


The adventure will probably be The Lost Caverns of Tsojcanth. It's originally set in Greyhawk, but it's easy enough to use in the Realms.

After the Witch-Queen disappeared and her realm fell apart, a rumour went around that she had hidden her "greatest treasure" in a vault somewhere. Until recently no-one had any idea where that vault was. Recently a sage discovered references to it, and published the information. Several expeditions are setting out into the hills to seek it out, and yours is one of them.

Edited by Bluenose, 24 May 2007 - 11:34 PM.

Back from the brink.

Like RPGs? Like Star Wars? Think combining the two would be fun? Read Darths and Droids, and discover the line "Jar Jar, you're a genius".

These, in the day when heaven was falling,
The hour when earth's foundations fled,
Followed their mercenary calling
And took their wages and are dead.

Her greatest treasure... It's probably some person, old lover or family member or something.

But sounds great.

Anyways, need to check motivations for different characters. As fun as a Paladin might be, he doesn't seem one to go looking for treasures, unless as a donation for the church... Bleh how one dimensional. Have to think about you. We'll skip the druid as I have one already going in another rp. Well I have a paladin wanna-be but that doesn't count because he isn't a paladin. Cleric-Mage would probably go up too slowly, too low powered. Rogue, greed or fun both work. And NE abjurer. Witch queen's greatest treasure, he'd probably suspect a powerful magical item. I'm thinking both of those work.

So its definately 3rd edition rules then? Awesome, I'm going to go and roll up a mage now I believe. How much experiance can he have exactly? And also, seeing as its 3rd edition are there any restrictions on feats at all?

So so far we have(for quick referrence)

Dark-Mage: Wizard, Wizard/Cleric (?)
Menelanna: Cleric (Human?)
Celestine: Rogue or whatever is needed(Elf?)
Kellen: Paladin, Rogue, Wizard, or possibly whatever is needed, maybe cleric(?)
Dirt Squirrel: Assassin (Human)
CMorgan: Assassin? Wizard? Duelist/Fighter? (?)
MiM: Underlord (Mage)? (Minotaur)
Solstice: Bard (Halfling)

That seem about right? If not please tell me, and I can edit it.

Btw don't shorten Dark-Mage to DM ;)

Very decisive ain't I? Looking at the people populating our group, Pally probably isn't the best idea. Heh, no fighty people yet too.

I've never done any PnP, let alone play by post, so I'll need to be sheperded through. But I'll give any class a try, though I suppose out of preference, I'd like to be a halfling rogue or bard, since no one else has really expressed any desire to try those. Forgive me for my noobishness, but I'll probably catch on pretty quick.

Rogue or Bard (Halfling) Alright then.

Well, I think I'd like to settle on a halfling bard, if that's acceptable. Chaotic good/neutral bard, joining up for excitement and fame.

Looks like a fighting type is needed - I 'll go look up 3E rules and see what pops out as a neutral duelist/fighter type. Although with a Minotaur in the party, there may not be much need. M kinda excells all by themselves at straightforward brawling - not too much left to fight after a STR 19 Crit Hit with a double-bladed two-handed axe wielded by a walking testament to brute force and strength - if PnP had the term, you would say "chunked" :)

Bluenose - method of rolling? Points or number limit? actual character level or experience? (Did you know I am a relative off Neeber and Noober? Did'ja? Huh? Can you tell I'm way too overeager to play? Huh? Did'ja? :D )

Would a Wizard/Cleric of Mystra with the intention of becoming a Dweomkeeper(sp) be ok for this campaign? Assuming its going to be set in the Forgotten Realms of course.

I firmly blame it on the fact that I copied it from Bluenose without checking. I will make sure to do that next time.

EDIT: CMorgan May I point out that MiM has announced that his minotaur will be a somewhat magish character.

Well, I could change my halfling to a fighter or something if need be, but I have a question: what exactly do I do to generate a character for this? I have this as a reference, but I've never done pen and paper DnD before, so I'm afraid I'll need someone looking over my shoulder.

This generator is pretty helpful for that. And hey, you can do bard, rogue, or fighter, whatever you want. Even if we have 18 wizards not one of them can do quite the same things as the bard. Bardsong/inspirations are actually somewhat useful in 3rd ed. And even if we already have one rogue that doesn't preclude another. one could be a lock specialist and another a master of setting and disarming traps. Or one could be good with those, while the other masters the art of speaking. And if you want a fighter(lots of bonus feats) then those can be fun too.

So yeah. Whatever you want. Otherwise it wouldn't be as fun.

EDIT: Bluenose. With all these people roaring to make their characters, would you mind telling us how we determine stats?

Then I think I'll stick with a bard. Probably low wisdom to reflect that I really won't have any idea what I'm up to.
