    Looking for a campaign

    I'm looking for a DnD campaign to play.
    I'm not really picky when it comes to DnD campaigns, but I do require that it's not some extremely hard omg dragon campaign, y'know?

    I'd prefer 3.0 rules, and anyone willing to DM for newbies :)
    If anyone else is interested in joining up, post here so the DM can get an idea of who's joining.
    I'm not sure what kind of character I'm making yet, though, so bear with me. I'll have an idea soon enough :)

    If you guys don't find some else, I can be your newbie DM. I am working on campaign, and will use either 3.0 or 3.5 rules, most likey 3.5 with 3.0 specialist wizard schools stuff. If you do decide to use me, I can have a campagain up by next week.

    Hmm, Sounds good, but my only DnD experience is with 3.0 rules.

    I am proud to join literally any DnD campaign I physically can; count me in.

    Also, if you don't have a stat cap, I'd like to actually try the human figher I made this weekend. I warn you in advance though: I rolled really high (above 95 total, I don't remember the exact numbers now). Then again, since he's a fighter, it's not that unbalancing. He has a mohawk, too. Which means it's okay to be superpowerful. There's logic in that. You just have to look real hard to find it. ^^

    EDIT: Oh, and 3.5 is not very different from 3.0, so if he uses 3.5, I wouldn't worry, it's probably the easiest system to learn, too.

    I would guess so too, but there's always hope. If not, I'll just make a new character.

    In any case, go here or here take a look a the base classes and the rules if you don't have the books. Alternatively, you could download the wizards' srd here
    And Arac, if I'm the DM Steve's referring to, i trust you to roll your own stats like VS but i need to see it to make sure you're not making any noticable rule breaches.

    I'll post the generalities for my setting sometime soon. In 2-3 days i think.

    I didn't break any rule I know of, other than a possible stat-cap, but that is a DM option.
    I just got the character sheet, and the Stat total is 98:
    Str: 18
    Dex: 18
    Con: 18
    Int: 13
    Wis: 16
    Cha: 15

    I just looked through the SRD, and can't find any rule against this. Then again, the SRD is missing some rather important things sometimes, so I could be missing something.
    Right, so, those're the stats. Character would be a human fighter, so the last three really only matter for skills (I get one extra, and I put it in perform on my character sheet, so, that's certainly not unfairly good) and a save.

    It's fine. I've seen someone get that lucky before. S

    Start at first level. Seeing as Steve hasn't palyed in an while and I'm not a particularly good DM, my plan of making you all start at 10th level is nulled.

    All right. Should I just take average on starting gold, or is there a set amount?

    Okay, so, here's the character:

    Name: Rath
    Class: Fighter, Level 1, ECL 1
    Race: Human
    Alignment: Chaotic Neutral (bordering on Good, so I can switch if that'd be better)
    Age: 23
    Height: 2 meters (6'6")
    Wieght: 94 kilograms
    Skin: A pale brown
    Hair: Dyed green, in a mohawk.
    Eyes: Emerald Green

    Str: 18 (+4)
    Dex: 18 (+4)
    Con 18 (+4)
    Int: 13 (+1)
    Wis: 16 (+3)
    Cha: 15 (+2)

    HP: 14
    AC: 20
    Initiative: +4
    Attack: +5
    Grapple: +5

    Fortitude: 6
    Reflex: 4
    Wisdom: 3

    Feat:
    Exotic Weapon Proficiency
    Weapon Focus: Bastard Sword
    Power Attack

    Skills:
    Handle Animal (4), Jump (4), Ride (4).

    Brief Bio: Rath began his first career at the age of sixteen, a career he kept until early last year. Adopting the business name 'Wrath,' which he is still known as in a few circles, he gained early notoriety for someone you could call on to intervene in 'sticky' situations. A physical powerhouse through training and work, with a fairly quick wit and excellent streetwisdom and cunning, Rath was quite able at his job. It never gave him much he really valued though, and he more often than not helped people who didn't deserve to get out of their situations, because he needed the money to live. After his fifth year in the job, he left without a trace, seeking a life of adventure.

    Equipment:
    Bastard Sword
    Chain Shirt
    Light Horse
    Large Wooden Shield

    Languages:
    Common
    Goblin

    Biography:
    As a young child, Sylphaen never quite got along with the other children. His parents paid little attention to him, and basically disowned him. His apparent lack of the intellect that other children had forced him to become somewhat of a loner. He quit schooling at an early age and became a petty thief. He eventually was caught a few times, and he stopped being a pickpocket. He enlisted into the town guard, and spent all of his adolescence there. On his 115th birthday, he left the town guard to pursue his own life as a sword-for-hire. Ever since, he's not lived in one spot for very long.

    Well, I'm pretty sure I'm just gonna dump you guys into Lodoss, But we need a time. Iwas thinking around 16:00, my time. I think looking at Steve-o, and Rudaroo's data i used steves link to put this attachemnt up. It seems though., it's 9 in the morning for Ruda, 7 pm for steve-o and isnce i have no idea what arac's time zone is, I'll leave him out of this. Ohio was eastern time right?

    Looky at the attacment, yo.

    Yeah, that's a good time for me to do it. Just lemme know what day we're doing it, and I'll be there.

    It's gotta be on IRC, though.

    Using one of the #ADnD channels would probably be easiest, right?

    EDIT: Would our characters know we're going on this adventure and have time to prepare? Because, if so, I'd like to roll a handle animal check to train my horse into a warhorse.

    2-3 hours I think. Also Arac and steve, you should put in languages. Arac gets one bonues language. And Arac, I'll allow it, but make the roll with me sometime during the first session and we'll see whteer or not it's trained.

    Edit: My eyes must not be working very well.

    I don't think I can make Friday this week, but I could make it if we held it on Thursday or Saturday, and I'd still like to do it. I might be able to do Friday though, especially if you guys were willing to start a little later.

    Note to my Players: All 3 of You, Kor was kind enough to go and post the logs. They're with Gilly's, but mine are easy enough to distinguish from his. They're at http://kor.nulani.net/dnd/ incase you didn't know already
