With Delve #6 nearly finished with the second encounter, I wanted to get the ball rolling on Delve 7. Jon somehow talked me into this months ago, so I'll be DMing this delve. It'll also be my first DMing experience in 4e and via pbp, so it should be interesting.

Guidelines: Create a level 7 PC. Anything in the Character Builder is fair game, and you get:

Level 8 item
Level 7 item
Level 6 item
1,800 GP to spend on further magic items
All the mundane (i.e., non-magical) gear you want (thieves' tools, climbers' kits, etc.) Don't try and argue that a warship or level 15 mount are mundane items though. :)

I'll try and accommodate all who are interested, though I'll probably need to place a cap if things begin to stray far from the standard 5 member party. Though level 7 is a bit high for a complete D&D novice to start with, feel free to invite non-Dead Goblins members you think would be interested in playing.

I'm also in (who could've guessed). I'll play a Shardmind Telekinetic Psion or a Wilden Swarm Druid or a Minotaur Storm Warden.

I'm in. I'm not sure what character I will build, but I think I'll play something unorthodox. I am going to look into strange and interesting builds. If anyone has any suggestions for strange fun builds feel free to share.

With the Delve 6 finished, it's time to get serious about getting Delve 7 off the ground. I'm going to be out of town from the 17th to the 21st. I'm thinking the 22nd would be a good target start date. Any complaints about that? That also gives us time to try and scrounge up a fifth (or even sixth) player if anyone is interested.

So, is the 22nd a good start date for people? If I get everything before then, I can try and post some delve opportunity for you to introduce your characters to each other.

I'll need character portraits and character builder files from everyone.

Please post your stat blocks here, as Jon did in his example Shardmind, so people can see what you've got brewing.

Unless you say otherwise, I will post a PDF copy of every character's record sheet so that players can easily look at the powers/effects their allies can bring to bear.

If you do not start until the 22nd, then I can hop in. I won't even think about a character until next week, though.

Starting on 8/22 is good with me. I'll get serious now about what I'm going to play. As always, I'm not sure, I just know it'll be something new. :)

Although I will not be playing this next delve, I have a couple new recruits in mind. The delve is a good place to audition new players, and I would really like it if some other women could join in our fun.

I'm thinking of Stacy Korn and Katie Forman. They both play and/or have played DnD, were in CHP at UCI with me, and appear to have ample internet time. I haven't invited them yet, and wanted to check with you first.

Nathan, let me know what you think. If you are cool with it, I'll explain the set up and see if they want to have a go in the delve.

I'm happy to sit out, especially if new players want to try. The campaigns are quite a handful as is.

I'm happy to try and host Stacy and Katie's first Dead Goblins experience. Emily, do you know if they have any 4e under their belts? It doesn't really matter; it just gives me an idea of what to expect. I believe I'm comfortable trying to run that many, though this is going to be my first time DMing 4e and PbP. If you want to use this as an excuse to gracefully bow out, I'm not going to hold and grudges :D

Also, here's a PDF character sheet to see better what he's about. I envision consistently hitting and taking advantage of the high damage modifier and the Avenging Resolution feat (which basically gives brutal 3 to my fullblade against my oath target).

Thanks. I'm not sure other than that Katie played 3.0 in one of Gary's games. I'll go ahead and invite them and try to find out.

One declined and the other never got back to me. So it looks like I'll be the only gal on deadgoblins for a while yet. :(

OK, I no longer feel like I'm on death's door, so I'd like to push folks to get their info to me. Without any of Emily's prospects playing, we have room for Josh, though he knows a bit of a spoiler since I asked his advice concerning something. :| Looks like I'll either be mixing it up or he can claim he doesn't remember anything. ;)

I've got a firm one from Air, and ideas from Gary and Jon. The ideas are a mixed striker/defender (Ari), Striker (Gary), and Striker (Jon). If Viktor still has any interest, we can fit him in too :D I don't care about party make-up. All strikers is fine with me. Squishies get hit easier. :twisted:

Nathan, did you get the e-mail I forwarded to you a couple weeks ago? I got a random request to join a game at Dead Goblin from someone who said they PbP elsewhere. If you're looking to add an extra, we can give that guy a shot in a Delve. Let me know if you need me to re-send that e-mail.

Given Josh using a warlock again, I will change mine. No sense having 2 when you can't curse an already cursed enemy.

Oh, no, that's ok Jonathan. I didn't even realize that. I don't want to step on your toes and you chose first. I told Nathan I would play because I could just quickly update my previous character. Since it is taking longer to start than initially anticipated, I can make something else.
