Rhuvein's Sunday Night CZ game

Post by Rhuvein »

Hey.

Looking to a possible June 19th start . . one month from today. Sessions will be every other week.

Just wanted to post a heads up for people to think about character selection/creation.

So far, I have the following regular players:

Rigon - human Algai’d’siswai, Dhorric
Aramis -dwarf cleric/wizard, Snorri Ironbeard "The Artificer"
Titania - gnome knight, Korthytis
Jaybird - gnome rogue/illusionist, Snizzlebuss Rootbottom
Treebore - half-giant knight, Backar
Nwelte - Mclean Blounderbuss, a mysterious elf wizard/bard
Arrowhawk - half-giant fighter, Bruno
Aergraith - Darby, human wizard

The following players have left the building:

Nwelte - gnome knight, Harry Knobs - believed to be lost on the 2nd or 3rd floor of the castle along with his dog, dysplexia

slimykuotoan - human ranger, Wellington - injured and recovering at Dr. Frankenstein's tower

Lord Seurek - half-human/half-giant, Tutoc and his goliath turantula bard, Zac - separated from the party and is somewhere on the 3rd floor of the Castle

CKDad - Mervyn Copperpot, a fearless halfling monk/wizard - present whereabouts unknown

DeadReborn - Gurek Grutzmueller, bard - apparently lost in the dungeon

Many thanks!

Grand total XP = 13,148 for each PC (through session XXXIII).

House rules for CZ game:


2 level characters with max HPs.

4D6 drop lowest (re-roll 1s & 2s).

Roll for comeliness (from AD&D Unearthed Arcana).

Max gold X 2.

All races get 3 prime attributes.

Mages can wear non-metal armor (+3 max) and use long swords.

Monks can wear padded or leather coat (+1 max).

Natural 20 roll (crit) = dmg roll + ½ of total possible.
2nd nat 20 in a row = dmg roll + max.
Fumble = dropped weapon, lose 1 turn.
2nd fumble in a row – weapon damage.

If the party has 2 or more of any class they get special bonuses

All classes or races, please feel free to pick 3 or more deities from Of Gods and Monsters, Greyhawk, Aihrde and/or another source. You don't have to, you can be an agnostic or atheist but you might be sorry when you're at deaths door, unless your fellow party members pray for you and their Gods intervene.

Spell casters have/know all 0 level spells and some are permanently memorized/known, i.e – wizard can detect magic without having to study, but must state that he is doing so.

Demi-human races have magic users and clerics.

Spell Resistance bonuses for demi-humans:

Elves +10 for charm/sleep (per the PH), +8 for all others (where appropriate).

Gnomes +8 for charm/sleep, +6 for all others.

Halflings +4 for charm/sleep, +2 for all others.

Dwarves +3 vs. arcane magic (per PH).

Half giant/half human races are available.

No evil PCs.

PH encumbrance rules will not be applied, but common sense will be loosely enforced.

Feel free to create any back story or background history/info for your character. It's not required but it very well may help him/her during your adventures.

Illusory magic:

Illusory monsters or spells cause damage to the mind/psyche – 1D6 (at least through the first 4 levels of spells). No physical damage occurs.

Cure spells can only cure above type damage, not gaping wounds that are bleeding out. The wounded fellow may think he is healed and feel great, but blood is pouring out and infection is imminent, so he needs a divine healer.

Major image – caster can only present images of creatures that he has seen in battle and the monster cannot be one of a higher HD than his (per Robert’s house rules). If you’ve seen a monster, but he didn’t move/fight etc., you can present that image and it will be unmoving – as you saw it.

Illusory rope/bridge/latter, etc.: Excellent illusions, but cannot be physical. So the party or other monsters cannot climb the rope or walk the bridge. However, used as decoys/bait, foes can be fooled and easily killed if they fail their checks and try to utilize said illusions.

No remove blindness/deafness unless caused by an illusory spell (not sure if there is one that can cause them).

Other:

I don’t allow insta-kill spells. If blasted by that type of spell, the PC goes to -1.

All magical protection items stack . . armor, cloaks, rings. etc. And they all stack with expert armor.

Multi/dual classing allowed - use PH or the CZ options/skills PDF (this is in the Yggsburgh book as well).

Also, pick 1 or 2 skills from CZ Yggsburgh book/PDF, at no cost to XP. Future level additions to skill bonuses will cost you.

Or you may pick a skill from the CKG.

Half-giants:
Racial modifiers = +2 STR, + 2 CON, and +2 to save against fear rolls.
7-8 feet tall.
Move: 35 ft.
Can hurl boulders 100 ft. Large boulders 2D6, large rocks 2D4.
Can use 2 handed weapons with one hand.
Any armor, any weapons.
Add 10% to armor costs.

All other rules - follow the Player's Handbook.


[House rules complete]. :)

Great Jay. The game is every other week, so you'll only miss the 1st session. You can either pick a char (no need to roll stats, yet) for the 1st game, or pick/create one later and I'll drop him/her into the game.

Enjoy your week of meditations.

[Btw, Titania is taking a pottery class at college and offered to create scuptures. She says she can do garden gnomes. I'm going to commission a couple, may I use your visage for one??]

Sounds good Rhu. The 19th shouldn't be a problem for me. 2 weeks after however will be July 3rd, and my family and I are moving at the end of June (after 8 years in this town). I can't promise I'll be able to get online until around the end of June. July 17th game shouldn't be a problem.

Haha! Sounds awesome. You should use this great picture of Fluggo that ATOM drew:

Speaking of which, I'll go with a gnome rogue. The halfling druid was fun, but everyone assumed I was a gnome anyway, so I might as well bend to the typecast ;)

I'm leaning very strongly toward a half-elf bard. But I may change my mind between now and then.

A half-giant druid named Bubba..... Let me ponder on that.

In three Third Age, the people of the Threefold Land, the Aiel, called their brave spear warriors Algai'd'siswai. They fight with no armor and wear Cadin'sor with veils.

Think natives with a sense of honor similar to the stereotypes of the Japanese or Chinese. (At least that his how I envision them.) Or, think ninja spear fighter.

I have been writing an adaptation of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time RPG for C&C, but keep stalling out. I keep questioning if it would be too difficult for players to play a game in the Third Age while the Dragon begins his rise and marches toward Tarmon Gai'don. Would the characters be over shadowed by already epic journey/battle that centers on the Dragon and his companions?

I would much rather play a warder or a wolf brother. In an evil campaign, a Myrddraal would be fun.

Way to give it away, Effer! :P Think Zulu warriors with a Samurai code of honor and Celtic clan system. That's the way I've heard RJ describe them.

I'd like to see your notes on this, since I've been working on an adaptaion off and on for a few years. I think there is an awful lot that can be done during this timeframe. The world is big after all and the Dragon can't be in two places at once.

Wolfoids are very cool as well!

Hopefully, you guys won't meet any . . unless you decide to take a "Ride on the Warding"! You won't pass GO and you won't collect 200 GPs, but you WILL have FUN!! :lol:
