General Rules & Rules Set

It’s pretty simple, actually. I’m using the Dungeons and Dragons 3.5 ruleset. If you can show me a class in a hardcover 3.5 book, I’m cool with it. No homebrew classes. Period. The only main restriction I’m giving is that I don’t want classes to overlap. Exceptions would be classes where there are multiple ways of playing the class. For example, there can be two Rangers, but one must be of Combat Style: Archery, and the other of Combat Style: Two-Weapon Fighting. So far the character classes which have been fully claimed are as follows:

  • Barbarian
  • Cleric
  • Druid
  • Sorcerer
  • Exorcist
  • Malconvoker
  • Blood Magus
  • Fighter
  • Monk

Unfortunately, I don’t really want to budge on this rule. And to be rather honest, you don’t want me to budge on it, either. Because when classes overlap, it brings out the Gary Gygax in me, and I see overlapping weaknesses for the whole party. So please don’t tempt me with that. :D

Ability Scores

Ability scores are rolled with 4d6. Any individual d6 that comes up as a one (1) may be re-rolled. Any total ability score that totals less than thirteen (13), may be re-rolled. If, when the 4d6 are rolled, all four (4) dice land with their six (6) side face up, that ability score counts as nineteen (19).

Hit Dice

From levels one to 5 (1-5), maximum hit dice will be allotted. For every level afterwards, the actual hit die will be rolled, and the Constitution modifier will be added to determine the increase in Hit Points. Any hit die roll that lands with its one (1) side face up may be re-rolled.

Starting Equipment/Gold

As of right now, characters starting at level eleven (Lv.11) will start with One hundred twenty-thousand gold pieces (120,000 GP) to spend in any manner they please. It is of note that Brian’s Sorcerer is able to enchant items further if the need arises.

Regularly Scheduled Play

I will try to run this game every Monday evening, starting usually at 6:30 PM. I’m pretty sure we will be running the game at Jude’s apartment in Santa Fe Trace. I am going to refrain from making definite food plans on this page, and will refer you to Jude for such matters. However, I am sure that any and all contributions toward food will be greatly appreciated by all of us.

Disclaimer

I don’t have a problem with people making extremely “broken” characters. However, be aware that the more powerful your characters become, the more powerful the enemies they will face become. Your party is only as strong as its weakest link.

Oh Yeah, One More Thing…

I really want to see someone play certain prestige classes. I will give some MASSIVE bonus XP to anyone who runs any one (1) of the three (3) classes that I am most interested in. I won’t tell anyone what they are, but they are in Wizards of the Coast published material for Dungeons and Dragons 3.5. And…you know…they’re all prestige classes.
