I rolled my stats! I rolled well! I used random org. Six is my lowest roll! 17, 16, 14, 12, 16, 15 (That's after adding the bonuses) Can I keep it? ^__^

I used them as well, and ended up with a bunch of 13s for stats (after my modifiers). By "a bunch" I mean "all but two."

I'm thinking my halfling is a frontiersman,used to roughing to avoid the laws of conquerers. With the mithril mining boom, he's moved to the city to exploit... I mean, guide wannabe miners in the dangerous wilds.

Yep.  You could have rolled dice.  I'm big on the honor system.  I figure if people wanted to fudge rolls, they can fudge just about any system.  For me it's not fun without a chance of failure.

Remember, if you are unhappy with the scores you can always use point buy.  Or if you get a a set of real stinkers, roll again.  I want people to be happy with what they are playing, and to be able to play their concept.

I can work with that.

Heads up for everyone.  I'm ready to start whenever everyone finishes their characters.  However, I have a trip to Scotland coming up (poor me) so unless I acquire some pdf copies of the rule books, I won't be able to do anything rules intensive (as unlike other systems I don't have this one memorized.  Shouldn't be much of a problem as most of the initial post will most likely be introductions and RP but figured I'd give y'all a heads up.

Scotland in Jan/Feb? Yeah man, poor you. Isn't that about the time where the sun becomes something of a myth, and you can practically get anywhere you want by swimming through the air if the rain isn't pushing you down?

----Appearance----

 

Nivin is 3’ tall, though quite broad of shoulder for a halfling. His nose, like that of many of his relatives, is somewhat large, causing some to mistake him for a gnome. However, his shaggy sideburns, muted brown like the rest of his hair, are distinctly halfling. Most of his clothes are homespun linen or hemp and, unusually for a halfling, avoid bright colours in favour of natural browns and greys. He’s rarely seen without his great black bearskin cloak, a trophy from a bear he killed when he was 19.

 

----Backstory----

 

 

“A... gnome?!? Oh, sure, I guess anyone under 4 foot tall looks t’ same t’ ye lanky snobs. C’m ‘ere, I’ll punch yer kneecaps in!â€

 

The cry brought silence to the bustle of the tavern, broken moments later by a crunch and yelp from the misspoken Quentrian.

 

“Should we leave?†Vincent quietly asked his host, Bryant the Brawny.

 

She shook her head. “Nah, just a bit of local colour. That’s Nivin, the eldest of the Slimheart boys,†Bryant said, nodding her head at the developing brawl, “Honestly, I don’t think they’ve got anything against gnomes, but they haven’t much love for the Quentrians. Nivin will take most things as an excuse to thumb his nose at them.â€

 

“It really is quite a large nose, for a halfling,†Vincent admitted, as the halfling threw the Quentrian’s friend across a table, “Why the dislike for Quentrians?â€

 

“The Slimhearts left Talos when the Quentrians moved in two centuries ago. Old Man Slimheart, Nivin’s great-great grandfather, would tell you stories of the early days-â€

 

“Would?â€

 

“Well, it was two centuries ago. He was pretty ancient, even by halfling standards. Passed on 5 years back. Anyway, the Slimhearts moved out to the frontier to keep away from the stifling grasp of Quentrian law. There may have been a magistrate’s daughter involved. They’ve been living off the land since.â€

 

“What’s he doing in a tavern, then?†Vincent asked.

 

“Same thing you are, hun,†Bryant said, grabbing her cup of ale before another participant in the growing brawl stumbled into the table, “Making money off the mithral. The Slimhearts have no interest in mining themselves, but Nivin’s been making a crust escorting greenhorns like yourself into the wilds and making sure they don’t end up bear food. In fact, go ask the barkeep for some ice. We’ll tend to the kid’s eye there and you two can get acquainted.â€

 

 

----Personality----

 

  • I place no stock in wealthy or well-mannered folk. Money and manners won’t save you from a hungry owlbear.

  • Magic, on the other hand, might, but it’s a slippery, untrustworthy and dangerous tool. Best stick with something solid and real, like a good blade.

 

Ideal: Misfortune befalls us all, and it’s our responsibility to help those who are laid low by it when we can, as well as to ensure we are strong and capable to aid them and ourselves when the time comes.

 

Bond: As the eldest of my generation, it’s time for me to find a wife so my family’s legacy can continue.

 

Flaws:

  • A lesson ain’t a lesson if you don’t get burned. If I rush in to save everyone first thing every time, they’ll never learn and get stronger. Best for their own sake I let them twist for a little bit before pulling them out of the flames.

Shaping up to be a rather interesting party.

And ye for all of the diversity, it looks like you will have it pretty balanced.

 

One arcane caster

one and a half divine casters

three front line combatants

one rogue with another mechanical disabler.

 

So as long as you can work together and not have any blue on blue activities, then it should all be good.

 

The fun thing from my point of view will be who the "face" of the party will be.  We have Charismatic Warlock (who doesn't speak), Paladin (on a steek), a cleric with what I assume will be some sort of attitude problem/personality disorder, a gnome barbarian that assume will be very blunt and a dwarf (a race not known for their diplomatic skills).  The swashbuckling rogue might be closest you have to a logical choice.  Not that you need to be logical. 

 

I foresee much fun to be had.

I'm not literally playing my Cleric like Thor.  Just inspired by.  Still haven't chosen my race.  I wish I could get Dwarven stats on a Human body.  Spells will all have a Thunder/Lightning motif.  I may be a little arrogant.  Love a physical challenge, etc.  Haven't decided if I will speak like Shakespeare :lol:

      Traveling Encounters volume 1
      Compelling 5th Edition Challenges For CR1 to CR5
       
      This small project is to fund a collection of little encounters that can be dropped into an existing adventure for low level adventurers.  I backed his previous project for alternate character backgrounds, and he delivered the PDFs early.

      The Grand Duchy of Reme awaits!
      Starting in 2002 Necromancer Games began populating its Lost Lands campaign setting one adventure at a time. The Grand Duchy of Reme is the region home to classic adventures released by Necromancer Games for D20/3.x and Frog God Games for Pathfinder, Swords & Wizardry and Fifth Edition. 
      More than 10 adventures have brought life to the Grand Duchy of Reme. The Lost Lands Campaign Sourcebook funded in January is expected to be over 700 pages and all of them are full of information. By necessity each region was described broadly, but there are still a wealth of history, politics and other details to be explored, experience and expanded in the Grand Duchy of Reme. 
      The Grand Duchy of Reme is a system neutral hardcover volume designed to be useful for campaigns independent of system preference. Specific details that affect the characters in the Lost Lands there are System Encounter Books. These companion volumes are softcover (or PDF), that contain reference stats for use with the Region book along with detailed encounter tables for the region.
      Additionally, 3 classic adventures previously unavailable for Pathfinder, Swords & Wizardry, and Fifth Edition are back. These are offered as either softcover add-ons in backerkit or as free stretch goals in PDF (see reward sidebar).
      Mock-up of Grand Duchy of Reme. Final release will differ slightly The city of Reme itself is ancient, with world-spanning trade — the eternal citadel of the Loreclans, where the ashes of legendary barbarian kings reside. This land lies near the slow collapse of the nearby Empire of Foere, and the rise of Bard’s Gate to the East. The Rhemish watch these events with cold eyes rather than concern, for they live in vast regions that devour invaders. Their land is eternal; their people can be forced back to the plains, but in the plains they can abide for as long as need be. They are — as a people — the ultimate hunters. The fall of Foere is like the fall of an antelope upon the plains; the rise of Bard’s Gate is little more than the stepping-up of jackals before the body. The Grand Duchy of Reme simply waits and watches — for Reme is the dwelling-place of the world’s wolves.
      Reme is a unique fantasy civilization whose structure is determined by the one overriding fact of its geography — the country is a vast, grassland plain. The realm is dominated by the culture of the ancient Loreclans: the urbanized and settled ones, and the nomadic clans of the interior. The Loreclans owe a certain fealty to the Dukes of Reme, who are the final arbiters of the ancient law of the plains, but between the Loreclans and the Dukes there are also the mysterious Pashtars: arbiters, judges, and mediators who roam the plains where their service takes them.
      The city of Reme, of course, is one of the wonders of the world of the Lost Lands, home of powerful spell-casters and perhaps the greatest mercantile and war fleets of the Crescent Sea. It is also, however, steeped in the culture of the vast plains of the interior. It is a place where assumptions are dangerous, for it is no standard fantasy environment — it is a culture that will be entirely new and foreign to your players, a place to truly explore as well as adventure.

      So pre-launch (I think October). Just under 2000 copies are already printed and will ship after the pledge manager closes. More supporters will be part of a second print run for January 2020. About 30US$ to ship to Canada for a softcover & pdf. Also the option exists to back in advance for the 3 follow up adventures. That seems to be at a 5$ discount from the first module.

      Sorry if I've missed seeing this one.  It's the latest KS from Agate/Studio 2.  This time it's not Esteren but the project that Iris has been working on.  It sounds like it is pretty well done in French, so this project is to finance printing of the English edition.

      Anyone here backing this one? I missed the first one, of Feyland, but there's a level where you can get both books. I don't have a ton of physical 3rd party 5e stuff so I'm down for it.
