    Hello, sorry I've been taking a bit to get my character posted, but I like to come up with a concept and build it all the way out 1-20, so I've got a character background and a 1-20 build to put together. Do you mind if when I'm done I toss it over to you, to make sure that everything is kosher?

    Post your PC in the Guild Roster.

    All 20 levels is a bit extreme so I would try the first 6 levels.

    Oh, hahaha no, I wasn't planning on posting the whole character, just wanted to run stuff by you. I'm just going to post the first level for now unless you wanted more.

    Given that we are allowed Unearthed Arcana, are we allowed flaws, and if so, how many?

    You may take up to 2 flaws at 1st level.

    Be aware that I will use flaws in a roleplay sense beyond the mechanics if they fit. Flaws are suppose to be negative.

    So who else is playing in this game, and what will they be playing? So far I'm alone.

    Two Things:

    1) I need the stats to be posted into the forum so they can be seen by all and I can easily refernce them. I don't have a copy of excel on my machine.

    2) No magic items, including potions and scrolls, at 1st level. You can get any alchemical items you want. After 1st level you can buy what you want magically.

    Lets follow the guildlines I posted, it will let us focus on the story/game and less on the judgement day.

    Hey sorry about that, it's been a hectic week and I haven't been able to put the stats on the computer. I'll be able to post them when I get home however.

    OOC: Is this a team-based mission with NPCs to help us? Since we know some of the other footpads, do we have an idea of what skills some of them have? Or are Jack and I expected to do this mission alone?

    This will be interesting using Fiery Burst as a lockpick once again...

    Hehe.

    This was added to the Game History:

    Those other theives....

    The idea behind the game is the group is a task force with persons of various skills and personalities. These "NPC" are actually the potential and future players for the game. They are controlled by me and function as needed. The crux of the story is around those actually playing. The thieves can perform various functions as needed for the story. The background thieves however cannot overshadow the PC's.

    While the thieves are around, players can perform untrained skill checks with no rank modifiers. I use whatever the player giving the order says and that thief uses the players ability modifier to use the skill. These skills can also take 10 and 20. Such skills will include open locks and disable device. Thieves will never risk themselves overtly. If they are required to disable a device, then if they fail a PC will suffer the consequence. In case where that is not possible, the thief's failure may cause other harm (like alerting nearby guards).

    When a PC appears that has ranks in such skills, that PC will be the one performing the task.

    Thanks, that sounds like a pretty good idea.
