D&D: Ruins of the Dragon Lord

  • So many newbies lately! Here is a very important PSA about one of our most vital content policies! Read it even if you are an ancient member!
We'll call him "Middle Line", then. Bozidar and Pietro as Front Line, Eir and Ramona as Back Line, with Ragnar and (maybe Redd's Bard) as Middle Line.

I like the thought of our final, sixth character being a bard, so I'm going to be helping Redd make a character.
Bards are awesome. Make sure he has as high a Bluff as possible, and find a way to let him speak any language. I think there's a feat for that. Also, the spells Summon Instrument and Animate Instrument are good to have. So is the feat Lyrical Casting (or something like that), because it let's you cast without interupting Bardic Music.
For the record, Ragnar's not frontline until he gets a Martial Weapon. It's crazy that Duskblades aren't proficient with Simple Weapons...

Um, Duskblades get proficiency with all simple and martial weapons, as well as all armors and shields (except tower shields).

Anyways I will try to dig up some stuff on Eir's appearance. The most notable thing is a red sunburst tattoo in the middle of her forehead.
Double check your PHB2, Archy. The only weapon profs they have are with Martial Weapons
'Twas a typo, TnT. They fix it in the Errata. They do, in fact, have simple weapon proficiency as well.
Really? Huh...Ok, I'm not as bad off as I thought.

Note to self: Check Errata
Right. Also, to those in: The IC is up, you can post.
I am currently displaced from my home computer, but I'll try to get something up when I get back. The only reason why I'm not posting right now is because I want to have it work for both Eir and Bozidar, and this box doesn't have MSN to talk to ric with.

To those of you already in and wondering, I'm allowing Seiji and Vay to join, making the party number 8. I will also be amping the CR of the battles to reflect this.

Vay, you've got 150 gold to spend. Your hp is 9, not 8 (because of your Con). You've got 4 more points for stats (the point buy is 36). You get 2 bonus languages because of your Int modifier, I suggest Morudhian (the language of the country you'll be in the entire game), and possibly an elemental language.
I'm gonna try and get a post up in the IC this weekend.

*just noticed character isn't up yet* ALright, I'll get both up this weekend.
First try was a bust. New plan: Five-plus-me characters, restart.

Yeah, I will be looking into builds for this restart.
Alright, I can get a wizard up soon who will, of course, be rather lame at early levels, but has plenty of awesome stuff to go for them. Later on they'll get some extremely useful reserve feats, including one for healing people.

There will also be a backup cleric build for healing and suchlike.
