No, I have Arcana Unearthed in hardcopy, I don't have it in data form. They don't have the 'Powerful Build' ability, and they'll still be wielding Medium-sized weaponry and such unless they reach level 3 in their racial 'paragon' class.

The race stars with +2 Strength, -2 Dexterity, Medium size, the Giant type, +2 Diplomacy and Sense Motive, and +2 to all Craft checks.

Their Paragon class has Cleric BAB, 1d10 hit die, Good Fortitude saves, and poor reflex/will saves. They gain stat bonuses at every level - +1 strength, +1 wisdom at first level, +1 wisdom and +1 constitution at second level, and +1 strength, +1 constitution at their final level in addition to Large size.

...All of which seemed beneficial to a War Cleric, at least in my opinion.

Weight: 143lbs.

Racial Traits:
+2 Dexterity, -2 Wisdom
Medium Sized
Low-Light Vision
+2 racial bonus on Intimidate, Search, Spot, Listen, and Survival

Class Features:
- Abjuration (Specialist): A specialist wizard can prepare one additional spell of her specialty school per spell
level each day. She also gains a +2 bonus on Spellcraft checks to learn the spells of her chosen school.
To specialize in Abjuration, Ramona has given up Necromancy and Enchantment.

- Resistance to Energy (Su): Once per day, an abjurer using this variant can create a mystical shield
that grants herself or any one creature that she touches limited protection against a chosen energy
type (acid, cold, electricity, fire, or sonic). The affected creature gains resistance equal to 5 plus
one-half the abjurers class level against the chosen energy type. Activating this ability is a standard
action. Once activated, the protection lasts for 1 hour. This protection overlaps with (and does not
stack with) the effects of spells such as resist energy.
An abjurer using this variant permanently gives up the ability to obtain a familiar.

- Scribe Scroll (Bonus Feat): You can create a scroll of any spell that you know. Scribing a scroll takes
one day for each 1,000 gp in its base price. The base price of a scroll is its spell level × its caster
level × 25 gp. To scribe a scroll, you must spend 1/25 of this base price in XP and use up raw materials
costing one-half of this base price.
Any scroll that stores a spell with a costly material component or an XP cost also carries a commensurate cost.
In addition to the costs derived from the base price, you must expend the material component or pay the
XP when scribing the scroll.

-Collegiate Wizard: You begin play with knowledge of six 1st-level spells
plus 1 per point of Intelligence modifier. Each time you gain a
wizard level, you may add four spells to your spellbook without
additional research. In addition, you gain a +2 bonus on all
Knowledge (arcana) checks.

-University: You gain 8 extra skill points at level 1, plus 2 skill points every level thereafter.

-Defensive Focus: When you cast an abjuration spell that offers
defence, that protection is improved by +1 and/or
2, depending on the type of bonus provided. The
+1 improves bonuses expressed in pluses. The 2
improves numerical effect values that are not a plus
style bonus. This variant does NOT affect DCs for saving throws caused by the few abjuration spells
that can allow one.

-Hemophobia: 'Sickened', as the status ailment, in the presence of visable blood.
-Vulnerable: -1 to Ac.

Vay, I'm afraid I just don't have room for a ranger right now. If you'd like to try any class that does not have a full Base Attack Bonus progression (I.E., not a 'warrior' type), I might be able to let you in. As it stands, I have a few people I promised earlier wishing to play warriors.

As it stands with Eir and Bozidar, we have 3 more slots. My own character will fill the 6th slot, making us a party of 6. Their sheets have been looked-over, and O.K.'d.

Sooo, does that mean you'd be against me playing as a Duskblade?

I'm going to try and go faster paced than usual, at least where combat is involved. I seem to have a curse where my D&D games end around the first combat, so I'm going to try and get them through as fast as possible.

TnT, you're one of the 'warriors' I spoke of - Duskblade should be alright.

Two slots left. Muirgraf is in, the stat-switch was fine, and everything's in order for him.

So, should I come up with a magic item wishlist of sorts?

Anyone who doesn't know what to play, I suggest a Wizard Transmuter. After all, we'll be in a DUNGEON, and things like STONE SHAPE could be quite useful.

"What's that, a wall's blocking our path, you say? I don't see a wall, I see..." Waves hands. "A DOOR!"

Alright, my Duskblade is made. Just gotta mess with his sheet some so that everything is lined up and where it should be. I'll have that done and posted up here sometime tomorrow.

You can if you want to. For the most part, the loot's already in the module, but I can see if I can switch a few pieces around, Archy.

hmm. I'll try to keep this brief, then. Of course there are the items to boost charisma, torcs of power preservation, all that jazz, but there is one, ONE magic item that has caught my eye as an item of extreme awesomeness and dozens of potential uses.

It is the Power Repository Shard, a Quori Embedded Shard. It rocks, but the one I had in mind rocks even more.

The version I want costs 48,000 gold and contains the power Metamorphosis.

By meditating for 1 hour I can swap out a power known with the power stored inside the shard. Embedding the shard in Eir would require a character with 10 ranks in Heal and the Craft Universal Item feat (Though I guess wondrous item is kinda the same?).

Eir would then lose 1 hitpoint permanently as part of the bonding process, but the shard could not be removed from her.

The shard is in Magic Of Eberron, page 116.

It's basically an item alternative to the Expanded Knowledge feat.

Hrmm. Yeah, I'm sure I can fit that in there somewhere on the later levels. Sure thing, Archy.

So far, the characters we have are:
Bozidar - Giant Cleric
Eir - Kalashtar Wilder
Ramona - Litorian Abjurer
Pietro - Human Fighter
Ragnar - Human Duskblade

This gives us three "Front Row" (Bozidar, Pietro, Ragnar), and two "Back Row" (Eir, Ramona). We have enough to start the game now, if the players so wish it. As it stands, we can fit in one more character, though it must be a back row character. This includes Experts (Rogue, Ninja, Spellthief), or one more Spellcaster to be backup, Divine (Cleric, Favored Soul, Druid) or Arcane (Sorcerer, Wu Jen, Wizard). That, or some strange 'multi-role' creation, like a Bard or Dragon Shaman.

Just so this fits (and to explain the placement of the Eberron Pantheon and a Kalashtar, this game will actually be set in Eberron, on the isle of Argonessen. http://eberron.wikia.com/wiki/Argonnessen

This allows the game to have an actual 'setting', though the entirety of the game will be set in 'Moru Country', an area I'm placing within Argonessen.

I'm ready to go when you are. Just keep in mind that I'll need you to control Bozidar from the 12th of November to at least the 2nd of December, possibly with a break at Thanksgiving.

For the record, Ragnar's not frontline until he gets a Martial Weapon. It's crazy that Duskblades aren't proficient with Simple Weapons...
