Character generation
« on: February 24, 2005, 11:50:26 AM »
So I'm thinking...

I am trying to break old habbits. I've always had a character that's been  fairly well "Balenced" in my mind. a decent melee weapon, some sort of ranged, and fair armor. This usually means some sort of fighter.

I know that we've all been playing a long time, some more than others, and we know how to seperate what we know from what our characters know, so I'm not going to be all secretive about what my character is. If you want to remain in the dark about whatever I end up with for a character, do not read further! Based on the info that Drew has given me, Here's what I have been thinking:

Psionics is something that I have never really had much experience, nor love for... however, it's a lot different now than it had been. I have borrowed the book from Drew, but I have not had the time to read it just yet. I plan on doing some of that this weekend. Because it's easier, I would like to ask questions from you guys that the book would answer... Can a psionicist be just a regular-seeming character? can they use weapons/armor? I think I would like to do something like a battlemage/psionicist. What sorts of problems would a class like this run into?

Isn't it possible to upload the maps to griznuq.com as well?


Yeah, it is. It's just that I would have to do it... which of course I have no problem with. I believe that I had said that in the last thread, but I can't remember exactly. What I am thinking about doing, and let me know if this is something you would be interested in, is give you guys some ftp access so that you CAN put images up in your own space. Let me know. if this is something that you would want, I would then post a "how to" including uploading and referencing here in the forums.

That's fine. Maybe we could put a link on Griznuq referencing the maps on Kulgar instead of a direct channel.

Hey guys,

I updated the Threshold section of kulgar.org.  I think it's all up to date now.

Wildfire, let me know if there's other stuff missing that should be on there.

Himo, it will probably be up on Kulgar soon. However, History and Current events are in the "threshold general info" chapter. it doesn't have all of the current information but Kulgar does...except for the History. So, to make a long story longer:

1) kulgar has information
2) Threshold General Info has information

Just looking now, I realize that the History of Elsenban is not actually up there yet.  You mailed that out a while ago, right Wildfire?  I guess I forgot to put it up there...

The weapons remark was in regards to another post. Didn't mean to mislead you.

Much of the info for my campaign is on Kulgar.org (is org right?) feel free to read all you want. For the races that are allowed from the psionic HB i allow Xephs, Maenads, Thri-Kreen, and i'm still not sure about elans. All others are not allowed at least not yet. There may be certain nuances that would be applied depending on what you might make. it would be too much for me to think of them right now but i'll let you know as the situation arises.

Something that you should be aware of straight up: this campaign is not always a continuing storyline like Forest Keep. it's going to be played by whoever is available to play. Characters may change from session to session. the consistencey remains in the location (Threshold) and in the characters as an association...and to some extent the adventures.

Do as you will...just don't get too physical with the weapons...blood is difficult to clean off of a rug.
