Round Three: This is for the general Sandbox. For the most part you are all expendable Secondary PCs (SPC) who may be snuffed out at a moments notice by other, more important characters. As a PC, secondclass though you are, I fully expect you to rise above this underdog status.
I am looking for players who know and understand Drow culture and who can proactively write themselves into the story without heavy handed DMing on my part. This section of the game is designed to bring the City to life.
I am calling for up to ten more players, but may accept more depending on quality of applications.
Due Date: Sunday the 21st of November, 2010 at Midnight (PST).
Example application... Name: Race: Build: Occupation: Relevant NPCs:
To start your application make a post in the Applications folder with character name (if you know it) and your MW handle in (). Example: Veir-iliv (Jreece). After characters are chosen your application will double as your Character Thread.
What if we wind up snuffing out one of the primary PCs?
Edit: Stuff I'd like to use: Metaphysical Spellshaper (BoEF, otherwise known as Book of Horrendously Bad Photoshops) and Thaumaturge (Tome Base Class).
Edit #2: Idea hit full force. Psionic Illithid Thaumaturge 4/Metaphysical Spellshaper 3/Thaumaturge +4//Psionic Illithid 9-11(/Psion 1-2) converted via method 1 in Tomes, giving some bonuses that are kind of... interesting.
+4 Int, +2 Dex, +2 Wisdom, +2 Charisma are easily discovered. Strength might be +4 or +2, because Con has the same score and might also be +4 or +2. I think +2 Strength, +4 Con. (Also might be under-CRing a bit, but I can't see 9th level Psion manifesting being more than 10-11 Aberration hitdie for CR. Possibly as high as 12.)
Basic idea: Illithid 'merchant', who is also one of the myriad spies that contaminate drow society, watching the dance of chaos and possibly participating if he can do so safely. Functions primarily as an enchanter, willingly enchanting (or enhancing) equipment for the right price. Of course, given that this character is already in the Wish Economy*, that'd be a hell of a price. But, more or less, he'd function as one of the illithid society's eyes in the chaotic city, feeding back information. Gradually having grown accustomed to the chaos, and learning to revel in it - when it's appropriate to do so, of course, and only when it wouldn't threaten his status.
*If not using the Wish Economy, I do hope you're using the crafting changes.
Edit #3: Rule 11; is that total stat mods before or after racial adjustments?
