1 A new Millenium... on Tue Mar 10, 2009 8:04 pm

The Sisters of Abby Island are in need of a group of experienced adventures to help one of their sisters who has fallen ill. The group will need to travel to Millennium Island which is known for its difficult challenges and high rewards.

So far the following adventurers have responded to the Sisters call for help:
Mikal (Male Human Cleric) (Leader)
Quinn (Male Human Fighter) (Defender)
Kaddim (Male Genasi Swordmage) (Defender)
Miri (Female Human Wizard) (Controller)
Thia (Female Elven Ranger) (Striker)
Varis (Male Elven Rogue) (Striker)

This adventure will be for 4-6 7th level characters. The characters may be chosen from the premade characters that I have created (listed above) or a player may use an existing Westron character or create a new character. A balanced party would be best, but I’ll leave party makeup to the players. If the group wants to play with 5 rogues, then that’s their choice (though the Sisters may end up sending a second group as the fist got TPK’d…)

This will be an online only adventure and will be conducted using MapTools (1.3.b50)/Ventrilo. I’m planning on having at least 1 two-three hour session every two to three weeks most likely during weekday evenings (more if scheduling permits).

Notes:

  1. All player made characters must be created using the WotC Character Builder program and a copy of the character needs to be sent to me.
  2. All characters need to have a MapTools token created using the “Veggie Man” macros. (I’ve created tokens for the 6 PCs named above).
  3. Once a player starts the adventure with a PC, that PC may not go on other adventures until this one is complete (could take a while…)
  4. Each PC will have three magic items (I’ve preselected the ones for the premade PCs before deciding on the adventure) 1@6th, 1@7th, and 1@8th. They’ll also have 1,800gp for future needs.


Maptools 1.3.b50 can be downloaded for free at RPTools they have a newer version out now, but I haven’t had a chance to test it out with the toke macros I use.

Players who have chosen their PC may ask questions of the Sisters.

Here's fine.

I'll post summaries for each PC in the People/Places thread. I'd email them, but I don't have everyone's email address.

Seems there is a delema. Chandilly is SUPPOSE to be a Elf Monk from 3.5 but there are no monks in 4.0 intil May when we will be able to beta Monks. I COULD multiclass here in the future into Monk but that can be a waste.

The other character I was thinking is Nilrem who is a swordmage but one has already been taken. Any ideas on a class you would want? With PHB II coming out I could create a bard. Smile

By the way will the night be set or will it flow around session to session? I vote for Friday.

If you want to play the sword mage you can. I can make up another character.

I'm not sure what's different with the "Build: Battle Cleric" compared to a "Cleric".
Don't they have the Class Features:Channel Divinty & Healing Word? You didn't list them in his Powers under "Encounter".

I've uploaded all of the PC to the Yahoo Group files page http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/nwgamers/files/

You guys can have to of the same if you like, up to you guys. If you create your own PC, then you have to create a token for it as well. Each of the tokens took me 1-2 hours and I've already done 6. I thought me making them may speed things along.


The Character Builder Summary doesn't list all of the PC options/class features. The "Battle Cleric" disignation is just flavor text. He has Turn Undead, Divine Fortune, and Healing Word.

I think I change to the
Quinn, level 7
Human, Fighter
Build: Great Weapon Fighter

I take someone easier to play since I am the least familar with the rules.

Honestly, I don't think fighter are any easier in 4.0 to play than any other character. All PCs at that level will have several class features, at will, encounter, and daily powers.

I think the goal is to play what you like or to try to fill a role the party needs.

...call me hard headed, but I've been dying to play my Warlord. I don't know how many of the sessions I'll make, but I think this is a good "fill in" character, some fighting, some healing, some battlefield control.

Almost set...
I have the NPCs created for the first few sessions
The maps are created
Premade PCs and their tokens are created
MapTools networking works for my internal LAN.

Things left to do:
External MapTools connections. I've had to re-configure the routers at my house to get port forwarding to work properly. It's almost there since I no longer get errors when I start my server. But I haven't been able to connect to it from an external PC yet. Hopefully I'll be able to get that working this week.

MapTool map lighting/"Fog of War" effects. This will take a day or two since not all of it has to be done for the first session.

As soon as I get the two items above working I'd like to schedule a session to get everyone familiar with MapTools and to conduct the first couple of encounters.

Does anyone have MapTools b50 loaded and be willing to attempt to connect to my server this evening?

I've tried using the external IP address from the local LAN and that doesn't seem to work, not sure if that's expexted behavior or not. I've also tried coming in from one of my work PCs using a VPN connection and Remote Desktop. That didn't work either, but it could be because of the VPN connection.

Since the "Test Connection" feature of MapTools says it's successful, I'd like to try with an actual remote system. The test should only take a few minutes. Sometime around 8pm would be best, though I'll try starting the server after the kids finish homework (guess I need to get yet another PC, they keep taking mine...)

Ken, I've built a PC for your adventures I'd like to play. I think it will be a good fit for the party.

I will paste him here for you review/approval.

Gender/Race: Male/Eladrin


Paladin 7th = ( exp)

Deity: Corellon: God of Spring, Beauty & Art, Patron of the Fey

Your PC looks fine except all PC will have three magic items and 1,800gp when the adventure starts. PC will not have the opportunity to buy lesser items with their left over gold until after the first session.
You'll also need to create a MapTools token for your PC. If you need help with token creation let me know. It's not difficult, just time consuming (1-2 hours per token, though I'm getting quicker after making all of the NPC tokens. So far I've made about 50 NPCs).

Mick,
I input your PC into the WotC Character Builder, but only gave them the sword, armor, and armbands.
He ended up
HP65
AC23, Fort18, Ref16, Will17
Basic Melee +12 1d8+10
Ranged (normal dagger) +8 1d4+2

OK, I'll revise.
I'll try and make a token too.
