Longman,

I think what I'll do is have you walk in with Lianna. It'll save some time.

OK.

If Lianna has not laid claim to the +2 ring of protection and the speed potion, I'll do so.

Also - I gotta say, it looks to me that Oypeen, Rykken and Sturm are a bit tougher than the rest of us, mostly due to the initial distribution of magic items, because we all started at different times. In particular, the rings of spell storing, and the high AC bonus items, mean that those characters will probably be able to adventure for longer than my character and maybe a few others.

I don't begrudge those characters, but, it might make it a little tricky for the DM to design encounters that will challenge them and not kill the rest of us. I don't think I'd front up to an enemy on equal terms with characters who have AC of 21 or 22, or have access to 12 or so spells, when my AC is 14 and I have access to 5. I'm hoping we can address this with the distribution of found items?

If there are more available magic items I have missed in the apothecary thread or in another place, please let me know. That part of the story is a bit hard to follow.

BTW - I am having fun so far. The pace is nice and slow with plenty of time for quirkiness and character development.

why didn't you buy platemail and shield. You'd have a 19 AC with your dex bonus?

also, I just put a magic looking chainmail in my bag. You want to put it on and test it out?

Just to put this out there..... having an AC of 20+ isn't really that great of a thing in a dungeon like this. There are random teleports all over the place that will "bamf" you down to one of the other 8 levels. Trust me when I say that there are things down there that will test any single member no matter what AC or how many spells they have to use. Your strength is your party and how you all interact once the Beholder poop hits the Blade Barrier. :lol:

If you want the ring and potion Longman go right ahead. Lianna plans to stay as far away from melee as possible.

Longman, is Quantum adventuring without armor? You don't have any on your equipment list and you have your AC listed as 14 (11 unarmed, +1 dex, +2 ring). Is that an oversight or a PC choice?

I have no armour, and didn't see the character in armour. That's why my sheet says what it says.

Plus, my name is Quander, not Quantum.
