Oh, I forgot to mention one thing too. Regarding levelling your character up from 1 to 4, you may either take half your HD +1 or roll using any online roller, mailing the results to terenceleongty@gmail.com . If you choose to roll, though, you’ll be stuck with that result even if it’s worst than half +1!

The first one sounds about right. The handbook says Dwarven military phrases are quite popular among humans, so I went from there.

I still need ideas for equipment. 9000gp right? I’ve got a Masterwork Halberd and Full Plate with spikes so far, and a longsword as a backup weapon. (I always keep a backup) How about a horse?

Excellent.

With 9k, you could probably get more than masterwork. Log in to see images!

OK, those are in the DM Guide right? I’ll go through that later (I don’t have a hard copy with me, and have yet to fully read an online version). And my friend mentioned getting a +2 weapon. XP Not at this level!

I guess it pays to just have one bigbum weapon you specialise in.

Usually, yeah, but you can always still purchase that masterwork longsword! Anyway if I were you I’ll rather stock up on the interesting knick-knacks that come along in the wondrous item section: sometimes, those are just that more interesting, not to mention useful.

NOTICE

After checking back through some of my old sourcebooks, I’ve decided that the fighting styles in Mongoose Publishing’s Quintessential Fighter is way too cool to pbum up on. So for those fighters and fighty clbumes out there, have a look at it and, if you so desire, pick up a style or two.

For those who don’t have a copy of Mongoose’s QF, tubmail me. Log in to see images!

Heh, I think that would be amusing, but… no. Not for me. Honestly, as far as my games go, what I usually like to do is issue magical items near the start of the game that ensure unlimited supplies of food for the whole party so we can get on with the bloody plot instead of worrying about how you’re going to carry that 9lb worth of rations and 2lb worth of your own excretion. Same thing for arrows and shots because I’ve been a player myself, and I know the pain of keeping count of those things.

Besides, one of the perks of being in a dungeon is that the state provides for your lifestyle. Log in to see images!

However, that said, clothing is important! I’ll bumume people who do not purchase any clothing will be thrown into one of those state-issued prison jumpers and become the next most eligible target for bounty hunters everywhere. The way you’re dressed may also give you cirgreat timesstance modifiers to your Bluff, Diplomacy or similar checks, so do take some time to think about that.

This looks great. A quick question as to character motivation, though: what is it that Voaer wants out of life? To **** everyone (figuratively and maybe literally)? Is there anything that drives him: be it sensual hedonism, power, the wanton destruction of the world, vengeance? Or is there an overarching apathy towards life, a certain drudgery that he masks with his excess and reckless abandon?

So far we have a promiscuous rogue, a socially inept necromancer who talks to his rat and a silent killing machine. No room for comedy there, nosiree.

I thought of it, and here’s an interesting reason:

It used to be mindless hedonism. He spurned a rather drunken sorceress’ advances one night, because he absolutely, positively doesn’t have sex with drunken women (one might find this gallant, but it’s because they tend to vomit). Apparently, her mind was set on him, and so she cursed him: if he didn’t ejaculate at least once every day, he would feel horrible pain throughout his body. The pain would get worse every day. If he didn’t ejaculate for a fortnight, he would die. He hasn’t gotten past two days (jail processing days), though, and has only had to masturbate once. That isn’t to say that he still doesn’t enjoy it. He does. But now, he wants to find that sorceress, **** her again, and then kill her. Or maybe just kill her (then **** her?).

I have other ideas for him as well, but I’d like to see how they play out rather than “spoiling” them. They aren’t sex-related, either, and you asked specifically about his motivations there, I think. His motivations otherwise are pretty simple: survive. Really, he’s quite animalistic. But not so much that you’d catch him in a forest or something. Ugh. He’s not from a noble background, but he definitely fancies himself as a noble.

By the way, I usually don’t make characters completely based around sex. Ah, well.

And don’t worry, I won’t turn this into a porn. He might go off into the bushes by himself for a while, or go “information gathering” *cough cough*, but I’ll never be explicit. The minute there is an actual sex scene, by the way, I’ll bumume OOC that the person he’s with is trying to kill him, or something else interesting. :-P

That’s what they all say. Log in to see images!

Perhaps instead of ejaculate once per day, make it so that the sorceress cursed him to desire everything with a warm hole and a pulse. Pulse optional. This way, he doesn’t have to, ah, excuse himself every time he’s out “information gathering”, but will instead hit on anything that moves and try everything out “at least once”.

Initially he raged and fumed over his aristocratic tastes being brought down so low. I mean, when you start chatting up donkeys, you know that you’ve got issues. However, as time pbumed he realised that it wasn’t all that bad- some things he thought he would never try turned out pretty interesting, if not enjoyable. The question you should ask now, though, is this: how much of it is the curse, and how much of it is Voaer’s own perversity? Has the curse really survived so many years?

That sounds like it’s more reasonable to me, indeed. Also, I should note, that he FANCIES himself as aristocratic, but he isn’t by a longshot.

And yes, this curse has lasted that long. I’d say on a subconscious level he’s still repulsed by some of the people he’s had sex with, even if the curse has stayed active. He once had sex with someone that looked like John Candy’s fatter older sister, for instance.

But what if the curse has since expired a long time ago, and he’s really doing this of his own volition ever since…? DUM DUM DUMMMMM!!! We’ll just leave that as that for now, but, y’know, I’m just saying, is all.

Not with him, of course. Zack is a boring ol’ heterosexual, just like me, but he’s ex-military and knows how to get a guy to do really entertaining but stupid and dangerous things when they’re drunk.

Firstly: I love you for posting in code. Log in to see images!

Next, are you sure you want to wear leather armour? Because I think you forgot to update the AC section of the character from my template. I’ve made the necessary adjustments to most the whole sheet, so have a look through them again.

What race are you going to be? If you’re human, you get an additional feat at level 1 and +1 skill point per level. The same question applies for the rest of you, by the way: I haven’t seen a single mention of race in any of the sheets!

Log in to see images!

Re: languages and skills. You get 2 languages for being human, and one additional free language for every point of Int modifier. That means you’ve got 3 more languages (within reason) that you can take if you so desire, or just leave them blank if you don’t like being multi-lingual. Skills, unfortunately, have a maximum rank of 7 at level 4, so I’ve adjusted that too. You’ll need to level up once more as a wizard before you can meet the prerequisites for the prestige clbum.

Re: equipment. I’ll recommend some clothing, first of all. Log in to see images! Have a look at p141 of the file I sent you and choose something you like from there, with appropriate minor changes if you so desire. That aside, you still have 6073gp to play with: a fairly substantial amount of money, even if I say so myself. I’ll recommend considering the following (p732):

    - Pearl of Power I/II (1000/4000gp): allows you to recall a level 1 or 2 spell that you just cast once per day, as if you never cast it for that day. Pretty nifty, and very useful indeed. Strongly recommended, A++ will buy again.

    – Ring of Protection +1 (2000gp): adds +1 deflection to your AC. Doesn’t seem like much, but deflection bonuses always stack in AC, so it will add up if you eventually get other deflection items.

    – Potion of Cure Moderate/Serious Wounds (300/750gp): heals you for 2d8/3d8 worth of damage respectively. Potions are every adventurer’s best friend because even if you’re unconscious, your party members can shove one down your throat as opposed to dragging you along with them.

    – Wand of Magic Missiles III (2250gp): what can I say? Magic Missile is a mainstay of D&D, and 2d4+2 damage isn’t anything to scoff at when you’re holding a wand with 50 castings worth of charges. Remember, they ignore armour and always hit, so as long as you are covered, you can whittle down just about anything with Magic Missiles, given time and the lack of magical resistance.

    – Wand of Detect Magic (375gp): you’ll be your party’s most valued bumet when you can quickly separate the magical items from the mundane. Your rogue will also love you- hopefully only in a platonic sense, given his character- if you can identify magical traps as being magical. And at 375gp, it’s a steal!

    – Brooch of Shielding (1500gp): remember the Wand of Magic Missiles…? Well, this one stops you from being the target of those annoying magic missiles from enemy casters. Absorbs up to 101 points of magic missile damage before breaking.

    – Scrolls (variable): since you only know 4+Int modifier spells at level 1, I’ll very strongly recommend that you get as many scrolls as you can so that you can expand your spell repertoire a little. Where a sorcerer’s advantage is the number of spells he can cast in a day, a wizard’s is the number of spells he knows: maximise that advantage! To scribe a spell from a scroll to a spellbook, it will require a Spellcraft check (DC 15 + spell level).


And so on and so forth.

Also, spells. For spellcasters I’ll need to know what spells you know and what spells you have memorised for the day. Remember, you start off with 7 spells at level 1, and learn 2 spells for free every level. However, as mentioned above, if you buy scrolls you can Spellcraft them into your own book. Each spell takes up a number of pages equal to the spell’s level in your spellbook (minimum 1), which starts off at 100 pages. Don’t worry, we’ll get rid of that limit soon enough because I hate counting pages too.

For the life of me I can’t remember how to figure out fortitude and all that fun stuff. Also about the prestige clbum Pale Master you told me about earlier, I took the requirements for it but I’m not sure how prestige clbumes work exactly.

It works exactly like another clbum, except that you need to meet some requirements before you’re allowed to take a level in it; hence the “prestige”. *does the wriggly fingers thing*
