From the DM (Chris1234):

All core races and classes allowed but preferably no evils. Level 1 start. Starting location in or around Waterdeep, so a few sentences of background around that would be useful.


Time when Kelban Arunsen was the Blackstaff and the Seven sisters were all alive (ok one was a ghost having been killed by a blue Dragon, I think) and Durnhan ran the Yawning Portal.
Roughly 1372 DR,

Not going for strict adherence to Canon..

Stats will be via a Point-buy system slightly modified from the PHB

30 point buy system, stats start at 8
Only one stat can be bought up to 16 before racial adjustments are applied.

to bump stats between 8-13 it costs 1 point each
bump stats to 14 and 15 cost 2 points each
bump stat to 16 costs 3 points

Example:
buying Str up to 16 from 8 costs 12 points [1+1+1+1+1+2+2+3]
buying Dex up to 14 from 8 costs 7 points [1+1+1+1+1+2]
buying Con up to 13 from 8 costs 5 points [1+1+1+1+1]
buying Int up to 12 from 8 costs 4 points [1+1+1+1]
buying Wis up to 10 from 8 costs 2 points [1+1]
Cha stays at 8
total points spent: 30

Stats (before race chosen) 16, 14, 13, 12, 10, 8

Player choses a "Dragonborn" [+2 str, +1 cha]
final stats: Str 18, Dex 14, Con 13, Int 12, Wis 10, Cha 9

Chris also said there is a potential 1 point stat bonus for playerd that create a good backstory [preferably 300 words ot less]

Chris: Should i create player threads for char-build? I have mine 80% done

Backstory hopefully explains why one is in or near Waterdeep. I can help if necessary.

@Tristan - Yes, please. Directory per player, each containing char creation thread and OOC thread, preferably only visible to me and the player (ignoring site admin who see all :))

I don't think Squirrelly will be joining. But I could be wrong.

Ok, well still welcome if he changes his mind.
Safe and solid bet is a dwarven cleric.

Done-zo



So, are we rolling or choosing height/wt?

I'd like to opt to roll starting wealth rather than taking the pre-fab options (both are presented in phb) is that good with you?

How do you all (players and DM) feel about working our chars together so they know each other?

Author:  Chris1234 [ Thu May 04, 2017 6:05 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: OOC Chat

Sure, fine with that.

And if you find a reasonable in game reason why you would know each other then it saves me a job. :)

Well Nix is (probably) going to be a native of waterdeep, so if the others are there'll be plenty of opportunity.

I should be able to tweak my backstory to tie everyone interested in, depending on their bits. I'll post my part here and we'll wee what we can work up.

[Jist barely under 300 word limit ;) ]

Nixthi’vraklos never knew much regarding the circumstances of his birth. In his earliest memories, he only recalled life on the streets of Waterdeep… City of splendors, except for those born without means. Growing up in the Harbor District was rough, and young Nix and his friends were often forced to steal simply to survive. His Tiefling nature wasn’t common, but near the Harbor ‘his kind’ were tolerable. Throughout adolescence Nix began to pick up more advanced tricks of the shadier trades, learning to use thief’s tools and disguise himself more easily. It seemed his life was set for the path of a rogue, unsurprising for a Tiefling born here; but fate and one of the ArchFey had other plans…

Nix bolted through the winding Warrens’ streets with his prize, using his hard-earned ability to navigate the maze-like streets at high speed. Rounding a corner he slammed into an old woman in wildly tangled robes with dozens of trinkets and fetishes tied into the coarse weave. He fell back in shock, his young mind recalling stories of Hags and coven witches and powerful magic. He stared, unable to move as the withering hand reached for him; knowing he would die. Suddenly, recognizing his half-fiend nature, the crone grinned. Turning she left before he could react. There on the ground lay one of the trinkets… a spiraled length of deep green crystal…

Nix snatched the object and hid. Peering deep into a faint light within, he felt a presence… it promised him the power to change his fate and serve one greater. It was Nicniven, the Moon Weaver herself; Lady of Copper and Crystal, Queen of the Witches… Young Nix listened… and accepted.

====
Nix has olive skin, jet black hair, two thin spiraling ivory colored horns, and silver eyes without iris' or pupils.
i couldn't find a good picture but i'll keep looking.

[His patron Archfey Nicniven (pictured below) is Neutral, btw]

How does multiclass work in 5e?
I was considering a Thief/Cleric race to be decided yet.
