Anyone want to run through the red hand of doom?
« on: June 01, 2016, 10:18:47 PM »
I have some extra time on my hands for at least a few months. I've always loved this adventure and was wanting if anyone wanted to play. I'll dm.

Thinking basic rules
D&d 3.5 with 3.0 open, drag mag allowed, homebrew upon request.
32 pt buy
Must have a race that won't set turn the town's against you.

If there is any interest, I'll work out more in depth character generation.

I would be rather interested. What kind of posting schedule would you be looking for?
The following explanation has been removed due to time constraints, character limits on posts, and the DC 30 Spellcraft checks to understand large portions of it.

Oh Hells yes.
I'm not arguing, I'm explaining why I'm right.

Heard plenty of good things about RHoD but never got a chance to try it.

Would like to play a Mythical Maid, an Oni Brawler (with a "normal" base race) or Gate Guard with Sky Ruin.

I'm tentatively interested. I've heard good things about Red Hand of Doom. It was the last module my tabletop group tried to run before we stopped (we didn't get far, only the second encounter or so).

My mind is all on homebrew lately. Mostly my own, though, since a) I'm most familiar with it, b) it's specifically designed for the character concepts and fantasies I'm thinking of, and c) I do want to test them out some time. I'd be interested in trying out a Marshal or a Paladin.

All the homebrew looks good.

Hoping to get multiple posts per week. I'll probably post at least once a day if not more.

Start at level 5. Depending on the number of characters, I'll tweek the encounters to fit.
Would prefer no more than 5-6 players.

Probably not, I could squeeze you in if needed, or we could run two parties at the same time. Depends on everyone else. I could likely run the adventure twice in parallel if enough people are ingested. A party of 7 is a bit much, but I could run two parties. One of 4 and one of 3. I've got a few npcs that could help out the smaller party if they need it. But that's probably the most I could run.

I don't mind stepping aside if there wind up being more players than spaces. Better to run one good game than be overwhelmed by two.

Since its already written, I can handle two games. More than that and things would begin to slip. If I was writing it as we went, it would be a different story.

If you want someone to balance out the second team, I'd be interested in playing. Otherwise, I wouldn't want to bog you down.

Sure, but you'd be the last allowed in.



I don't need builds just yet, but if I could get background, or at least out lines I can get started on bringing everyone together.

Quick question, but what are the squads?

Not everyone has posted class ideas, but I was going to separate everyone into squads as balanced as possible.

I plan to go with a Mythical Maid. Primary job will be throwing knifes at baddies until they stop moving, not tanky but also not exactly squishy, skillmonkey that can potentially fulfill different support roles. Can also do infiltration.

I would take Mook Maids to get a couple more skillmonkeys, one focused on trapfinding, the other focused on cooking for healing and minor buffs for the party.

Fluffwise they're a trio of maids that lost their previous home and mistress because dragon attack and are now looking for somebody else that can give them a job worthy enough to serve, which would hopefully be another party member.

I'm leaning towards some kind of tank.  Maybe a DSP Warder (packported from PF), a Wyrm Warrior, or one of Garryl's Paladins (assuming he chooses something else or we end up in different squads).  If none of those are acceptable, I have other ideas too.
I'm not arguing, I'm explaining why I'm right.

Linklord, I'll probably put you in different parties wideither way, because the homebrew marshal looks to be fairly melee focused outside of the party buffs, so as to help keep the parties balanced. I'll probably put you in the same party as oslecamo.

Vote #1 for me would be Walker in the Wastes, #2 would be Chameleon.
