Each character has starting gold as of the basic rules - 3d6 x 10.

Except -

Give the diviner 250 extra gp to start with.

S/he can lend that stuff to other party members.

Remember, no magic items.

Have fun.

The terrain might be OK for horses and mules, it might not. It looks like medium density forest from whee you are.

These look fine. If you want to make the diviner a regular fighter, please go ahead. That was more my concept for a party (3 fighters, 1 caster). I'd rather not have the elf and druid in the same team. If this goes well, you can pick up another character later.

Please work out your movement rates. This will be important for overland.

I see you are going on foot. Probably a good choice until you know the situation a bit better. It's a good idea to work out how to deal with armor so it doesn't slow you up too much. At the moment I think your dwarf is going to be limiting the party to the equivalent of 4 hours a day.

Anyway Solomoriah has not gotten back with the actual forum yet so I guess we can play here in the meantime.

When you have made the necessary adjustments and noted down your character's movement and encumbrance rates, we can begin play.

Diviner is now a thief. I'll figure out encumbrance/movement rates later tonight. I assumed max hp for first level. If you want to roll, go ahead and let me know the outcome.

Ugh, now thinking about how to deal with the slow dwarf (again!). Maybe a riding pony, or maybe leather armor. Either way, first turn is tomorrow at the latest!

Max hp is fine. I want you to live.

Carrying armour til you think you will need it could work. You could take a suit of chain along for the dwarf, for when things got heavy. A pony is certainly worth trying.

Wearing leather armour will give you all 30, which is a decent compromise. You'd have a total of 6 hours equivalent activity per day at that rate. If you 'force march' I'll give you up to 9 hours, but you'll take damage unless you make your saving throw.

It'd also help if you work out your attack and damage options and put those down. Otherwise, I can do it when the time comes.

I'm Steve by the way. Should I just call you 'Woe'?

Please post characters here.

Posting MV, AC, and attack calculations would be helpful.

OOC: I wasn't sure if the +250gp was for the diviner or for pooled party gold, so I didn't spend it. If the intent was pooled party gold, I'm going to keep it safe in town as death insurance. If it was specific to the diviner, then it will be easy to remove from the party. Just have a thief rob the insurance company.

I have the very thief in mind...

It's cool if you keep the cash. Have an explore, figure out what you need and then come back and spend it. The 'Tigersong' character probably has some backers in the Shaint Isles (your home), or maybe she has some noble heritage. We can work on backstory later.

Cool party. Your move is 30, based on the slowest members. It will still give you decent coverage.

PS - can you put future OOC in the discussion thread. Cheers. We are ready to roll!

Characters are done! I'll work on backstory as the plot thickens. I never know what I'm playing with until after a few episodes. I've already decided that the dwarf lost a bet (and his armor) while drinking too much. I can't think of any other reason he'd be hanging around with two elves and a ranger.
