...and we could probably need an Arcanist too (PHB only)

Barrow of the Forgotten King - Forum
Dungeons & Dragons 3.5e
Ad Closes: Aug 5 '12
Estimated Members Requested: 1

I have already put of a re-recruitment ad for a skillmonkey to the campaign we're running, using the module 'Barrow of the Forgotten King'. In the process one of the players suggested we "hire" an arcanist too.
The group currently consist of a paladin, a cleric and a monk. I am certain we will recruit a fine player for the skillmonkey role, so that leaves only the arcanist role unfilled.

HERE is a link to the other ad.

Here is the story in short:
A family has been reported missing after visiting the local cemetery. Sentinels who have searched for them have not returned.
You have been charged with solving the mystery.

Character creation:
Level 2. 1000 XP.
No need to ask for exceptions.
PHB classes and races ONLY.
The original group was limited to core only and so shall you. From next level on I will preliminarily allow all official
WotC books, reserving the right to ban unfitting, overpowered, broken or plain silly material.
Stats are rolled. 6m4d6v1. If your added bonuses are +4 or less, you may have a re-roll.
Arcanist apps go HERE. As does the rolling. Max HP for the first two levels. Roll or half from lvl 3 on. Whichever is best.

Game Description:

The shovel clanged against the rock, and its wielder snarled in frustration. He shook his brown, furry hands and squinted up into the rain.

"Dig!" a clear voice came from above. "Dig, damn you, or I'll have you flayed alive!"

Deep in the pit, the varag warrior couldn't see the speaker, but he knew the smooth-skinned, silk-clothed fool all too well.
Clang! Another stone. After throwing down his shovel, the varag took a pull from his wineskin. Time for a break, he thought.
A green orb shot out of the darkness above, knocking the wineskin out of the varag's grasp. Snarling in pain and rage, the warrior held his burned hand and watched the wineskin disintigrate in a green pool. Looking up, he saw the smooth-skinned spellcaster, and he grabbed his shovel and gripped it as if it were an axe.

And then he saw the eyes. Those eyes ...

The varagturned back to the mud and the rock. He began to dig again.

Barrow of the Forgotten Kings is a Dungeons & Dragons adventure designed for four to six 2nd-level characters. Player characters who complete this quest should advance to 4th or 5th level, depending on how successful they are in defeating the evil creatures awaiting them.

Normal posting rate. Every evening and short updates during work hours. Potentially more on Weekends.
Well, at least here you didn't screw up the date :P (just kidding, 'course)
But I am content with staying a monkey.

I'd be willing to play an arcanist. Is this 3.5e or 4e?
And since you want this to be PHB only, what spell selection would be best for arcanist?

Definitely interested. I'll start thinking of a character. Should this character actually be "for hire", or is that just a figure of speech? :-P

There's something I like about the idea of joining this game. I just can't put my finger on it...
Arcanists are my thing. The idea of PHB only... it's simple, and something I could easily whip something up for. Lets see what rolls I get...

No, thats's a figure of speech. Once an arcanist is selected, I'll work with her/his player to best integrate the new character in the story.

Rolling and working on an arcanist.

I can work with it either way, but does core-only include UA variants? My guess is no, since you specify PHB-only, but I thought I'd ask presently.

I have a bard in my pocket from a campaign that never got off the ground, but he uses the animal companion variant. He also uses a whip-dagger, but I'll probably be dropping that.

I can make do without the variant, but the flavor works better with it. Under other conditions I might add it in later, but thematically this variant is a bit tough to re-train after the fact.

Nothing but PHB, I'm afraid. I've been very strict with others requesting exceptions and I have to stay firm.
