PC Setup

The initial idea is that each player will run one of the pre-gens.

So the first thing to do is for the players to agree who will run each PC.
Only one instance of each pre-gen in the party please :)


You can then refine your chosen PC.

This is to make a vanilla pre-gen a little more uniquely yours.
Ideally, the PCs will remain within the iconic character themes upon which they're based.

You can, for example, add and/or change details like:
  • One key ability-score-related word (e.g., strong, canny, wise, agile, tough, charismatic). You'll no doubt have noticed that I didn't include ability scores in the stat blocks. This is partly because ability scores mainly influence XP earned in the original game, and partly because I wanted players to have at least this much input.
  • Whatever normal equipment you wish your character to carry.
  • Perhaps a few words of Wyrmspear setting flavour that cover the PC's prior adventures. Bonus points if this falls within Wyrmspear's DL-spoofy pattern. Brilliant ideas could end up getting baked into the publishable version (with due credit given, of course) :D

Players are free to discuss initial PC assignment, equipment, and tweaking here in this topic...

Re: PC Setup

I am interested in Witherun, if that's cool with all!

Really for no other reason than that he fits with my penchant for character names beginning with W. 8-)

Re: PC Setup

Thanks everyone, all below requests are locked in.

Sully and ehiker will have to pick between Thanis and Goldwen...

Meanwhile, everyone else can have a go at adding any normal equipment they want to carry, and any other player-added nuances. Have at it.

Re: PC Setup

I tend not to play female PCs but, for the sake of this playtest, I will take either character. I'm fine with Goldwen if ehiker would prefer Thanis.
