Our dashing DM is currently recovering from oral surgery, so I thought I would do the honors and post what we discussed yesterday evening. JohnnyB, this will be new info for you as you had to leave early. I hope you’re feeling better :)
After much discussion and back and forth, we realized we had enough people wanting to roll new characters that it made the most sense to start a new campaign. Here’s the pertinent info:
*We are starting at lvl 5 in the general D&D world (not Darksun). This should make it a bit easier learning and building the character while still giving them some fun stuff to do.
*You can choose a lvl 6, lvl 5, and lvl 4 magic item and have 840g to spend on whatever else you would like.
*We spent some time talking about the party composition. As of now and from what I remember (Bayashi correct me if I’m wrong as I didn’t think to get a copy of your notes), we have myself in the role of leader, Dwarframpage in the role of defender, and Bayashi playing dps. I think Omniscientlyme had a couple different builds in mind and was thinking of perhaps dps or a dps controller (I may be way off on that, sorry!) and if I understand correctly, Weiye will not be joining us for this new campaign, leaving either controller or more dps as the needed roles, although really, as our DM is fond of saying, play what you think would be the most fun to play. Also, if we need to do more shuffling now that we have 5 players instead of 6, I am flexible about adjusting roles if needed.
*As our DM has a school schedule that is making running a game every week difficult, we will do two more weeks in a row and then switch to an alternating every other Sunday game.
That’s the basics. There is more I am sure, but our DM will be out of commission for a few days while he recovers. In the meantime, if I missed something we discussed, feel free to post it. Also, feel free to ask questions here or private message me and I will try to get answers when he is coherent :)
