Needing that one special skillmonkey AND AN ARCANIST!

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

The group lacks an arcanist as well and could probably need one.
Since the same PHB restrictions are in effect that means a wizard/sorcerer/bard.
PHB races only. No sub-races.
Apply in the same thread as linked to below in this post.
If you want, you can submit both a rogue and an arcanist.

I recently took over an abandoned game using the module "Barrow of the Forgotten King".
But before that the group lost one player which I now hope to replace.

The orphaned character is a halfling rogue and though it would be preferable someone just took control of him again, I am open to different characters being submitted. Although still a skillful one.

The group consists of a
paladin, a
monk and a

In the original ad, players were restricted to PHB material and since I want you all to be on the same terms, I will hold you to this in your character creation. Gear can be purchased from the DMG as well.
From next level on, all will be able to draw material from a much wider collection of books.

Stats: 6m4d6v1 to be rolled HERE.
If your total bonuses sum up to +4 or less, you may have a re-roll.
Gold: 900 gp starting wealth, Full HP + CON mod for both levels (Roll or half whichever is better after that).
I want to see sheets, but you can hold off buying equipment and distributing skillpoints until you are accepted.

I want rolls as well as the applications submitted in the game forum. Only one post per applicant.
Questions go here.

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.

I would be interested in playing your skillmonkey.

I will play a halfling rogue, but preferably not that one. Or would you really rather have me play that guy?

@kerim: Well, since the game has started, it would ease incorporating a new player, so yes, I'd prefer someone took over the character. That said, I'll allow tweaking of the character. If you keep name, race and class, all else can be subject to change.

Well, I already created a new character, plus a way to get him into the game. If you don't like him, of course I'll play the other guy.

I'll throw my name into the hat, I'd be willing to take over the character As Is. Halfling Rogues are one of my favorite things to play.

Edit: I just did a read through of the adventure so far and I have gotten a pretty good feel for the character.

I may have to rescind, on the premise of my rolls not really supporting a skill-monkey style of character Yeah, my total bonus is +5, but it's how it's a +5 that makes it not su skill-monkey-ish


@ALL: I have mistyped the acceptance date. It is supposed to say AUGUST 4th, rather than September. Only the mods can change it in the ad, so I hope you all get this.

Can I play that rogue, but redo his abiilty scores in a 28, 30, or 32 point buy, and change his class to psychic rogue or factotum, and hopefully start with a bit more kit, being a level 2 character, and maybe change the subspecies of halfling to a different one?

It is PHB only, and you are meant to roll. And 900 gp is basic kit for a second level character.

Right, and the character I would be taking over (ie, rediong the basics of that POSTED character) would have to have, ideally, 900 gp of kit, rather than what he has currently.

IE, take over and edit this character sheet:

Keeping a few more things like it is, the same basic 'character', but rebooted slightly.

To keep as much consistency and such as possible, I mean.
