Sadly, we only got one encounter down, due to starting like an hour late and such. Also having 2 Strikers and 2 Defenders against a group of minions and a couple of Swarms really made for a tough fight. With A little Area of Effect, that fight would have gone way different. Also lack of heals were sorely felt, Wooh, the group missed you

As it stands, the party (Koteth the Ranger, Jurak the Fighter, Arem the Warlock and Samuel the Paladin) pushed forward into the nest of horribly mutated/overly large rats. They pushed into the room a bit far, and ended up assaulted on all sides. Swarms of rats washed over them, biting and gnawing.

Sir Samuel fell to the horde of vermin while valiantly holding off too many of the monsters, and was fortunately stabilized during the battle by Jurak's efforts (he would have died otherwise). Arem's whispered Word caused a whole swarm to go into a frenzy where all the rats devoured each other until the last one tore itself apart trying to devour itself. At the end of the battle, Jurak's demonic alter-ego took over, carelessly tossing Jurak's body into the remaining rodents to burn them alive (a move which took its toll on Jurak as well; he was rendered unconscious from blood loss and required Koteth's "expert" medical attention). Koteth... missed a lot. Like, a lot.

Since we're only going to be playing 2.5 to 3 hours a week, I've decided to up the xp rewards (and possibly add a bit more treasure). That said, I'm also going to plan to have "scaled down" encounters to replace the real ones in the event we end up with another 4 group.

Questions to the rest of the group:
With Bylak bowing out, should we keep running with 5 (and I plan encounters accordingly), or should we ask for a new sixth who's free on Mondays after ~7:30 EST?

I've always felt 6 is the ideal party number, and consider how many addition people we had interested I think we should definitely look into a sixth.

Sadly, I also think we may have to ask individually, since it's likely that people who did not originally get into the group aren't reading this thread anymore.

Oh. I forgot. Jurak contracted the beginnings of Filth Fever for getting too friendly with a Dire Rat.

Wooh, you'll need to make your own check for that as well next game.

I'm really sorry about the last 2 weeks, guys. Going forward, things should be fine. This week was truly inavoidable and I got back too late to make it work.

As far as filth fever, is this something we all roll for, or since I was gone? AFAIK, I didn't contract it two sessions ago, but I'm fine going with your ruling either way.

I assume that between last session and this one we haven't leveled?

I remember that Xeno wanted in. I forget who else asked.

Edit: Wolfsnap and Dante also asked, but both said Monday was horrible. Xeno was fine with Mondays at the time.

After reading some of the info from the other thread, this game actually sounds really interesting, and Mondays are the only day I would be able to do it. Gimme a day or so to come up with a chracter concept, and to write some stuff down.

If for some reason Rampage and Xenoman can't make it, I'd like to throw my name in as an understudy.

Sadly, it looks like Xenoman is apparently rather busy (hasn't logged in for a while as far as I can tell) which is why I opened the spot to anyone interested. If we have another opening, I'll be sure to post it here.

[Edit] Yeah Galyn, I was meaning to ask, I hope everything was cool with you last session, you left rather abruptly at the end there.

We didn't level up yet, I think we're at 500 xp.

We understand that you couldn't make it, but believe me you were sorely missed LOL.

Oh yeah, things are fine, we don't stay mad at each other for long. She was just stressed that day and the egg casserole she made got burnt because i didn't hear the oven beep. Just one of those fights you laugh about when you're done fighting.

Okay, so, possible character ramblings incoming. How about an invoker of Erathis? A young boy, invested with the powers of the divine, yet he has very little idea what to do with them.

Invoker? New class from PBH2, or just fluff-fitting of current class?

If you have a D&D insider account, you can view the first three levels on WotC. I have a d&d insider account, so I could send it to you so you can take a look.

Invokers are pretty cool and are controllers to boot so it would filly the spot left by Bylak nicely, but I worry that we might hit level 3 a bit before PHB2 comes out (Since we're using boosted XP) and cripple your char's development.

Not to mention that we don't have the summoning rules yet, so that Angel of Fire level 1 Daily would be right out.

I wouldn't be 100% opposed to the Invoker, but there are limitations.

I suspect we could jury-rig it for the time being and make it work like a ranger's pet except a bit different; Both have their own standard action, but they have to have to share movement and everything else.

I would avoid any of the summoning powers, and you don't get any additional powers at 4th level anyway, so wouldn't even worry about until 5th level.

Just a reminder guys that we'll be gaming on Monday.

Rampage: if you would be so kind as to post your finalized character concept and character sheet here, that would be cool. Also, we'll see about getting set up a bit early (say 7:30 EST) so that you can go through the whole connection process and we'll create your token/character in the MapTools.

You have MapTools, Hamachi and Skype set up, yes?
