Charcter Generation and House Rules

Permitted classes are druid, fighting-hobbet, and thief.

Druids and fighting-hobbets may advance to 4th level if multi-classed, or 6th level if single-classed. Thieves have no level limit.

All multi-class combinations are permitted (druid/fighter, druid/thief, fighter/thief, or druid/fighter/thief). Experience is always divided equally between classes, even once the character has reached the level limit.

Druid spells and special abilities are detailed here: viewtopic.php?f=47&t=829

Plant-related druid spells and special abilities also work on fungi.

Equipment lists can be found on pages 17 and 46 of Delving Deeper Heroes and Magic v5 Gamma: http://download.immersiveink.com/DDRefR ... 180723.pdf

Slings cost 1gp and weigh 1lb (per Delving Deeper v4). There is no cost or encumbrance burden for ammunition; it is assumed that hobbets fill their pockets with sling-stones as they travel.

Armored fighting-hobbets may strip to their gambeson (padded undergarment) and carry the metal plates or chainmail in a large sack. The gambeson is equivalent to leather armor and is far preferable to metal armor for situations such as swimming or squeezing through a tight passageway. This house rule allows multiclass characters to easily transition to light armor when they want to use their druid or thief abilities. It takes (x?) turns to remove plate armor, or (y?) turns to remove chain.

Horses, mules, war pigs, or any other animal larger than a hobbet will be completely useless in the tight confines of the Caverns.

We will use Fighting Capability rules.

Druids have the FC of a magic-user.

A main-gauche is a parrying dagger that costs 10gp, can't be thrown, and grants the AC bonus of a shield.

Hobbets move at the same rate as men.

...and claims the first Hobbet Druid.

Potty the Mycologist

A peculiar fellow, even for a Hobbet. While not without his smarts, his obsession with mushrooms - and occasional digressions into other fungi - means that he is more likely to wax lyrical on the elegance of the gills on a Bleeding Tooth than offer up any useful nuggets of wisdom to those who care to put up with his company.

Re: Charcter Generation

Wilibald "Willie" Whitfoot
Lawful Fighter/Thief

Though he'd much rather be bounding about the countryside or indulging in one of his favourite pursuits (spelunking!), young Willie is determined to make something of himself, so he's taken on the title of Burglar-at-Large & is (discreetly) seeking out adventure. He's uncommonly healthy, strong, & motivated!

mushgnome, you've alluded to combo druid/fighter/thief characters in the intro, so I'm taking the liberty of assuming a fighter/thief will be allowed.

Re: Charcter Generation and House Rules

Great job so far! Please outfit your characters with equipment from the Delving Deeper rules.

I've updated the first post in the thread with a bunch of house rules. Keeping them all in one place for the benefit of easy future reference.

@acodispo: fighter/thief is fine by me. Hobbets may freely multiclass without restriction.

Good catch! That was a typo in the spreadsheet formula, and when I fixed it, I didn't copy it down enough rows. :)

I picked :
Warrec "Chegs" Chegwidden
Fighting-Hobbet
S:14 I:10 W:9 Co:9 D:10 Ch:8 Gold:2 Copper: 45
Backpack (2x Lg. Sacks, torches, rope 50', rations, 3x oil flasks, wineskin w/ cider, tinderbox, wetstone & 5x chalk), waterskin w/ water, wooden cross, 3x daggers, war-hammer, sling, Hooded Cloak, leather armor & shield.

Warrec is a proud defender of his folk, though he isn't war-hungry he was forced to take up his hammer to serve his folk. He loves to brew cider when he has time, using a recipe passed down through his family for generations. He often has an apple or pear that heal snack on with some cheese. He often has a wry smile on his face that is rarely mirrored in his eyes.
