It's not possible to attach files here - this board is easy to use because it's low on features =) There are other free upload services out there, but I don't know much about them. It's probably possible for me to set up an FTP to here, but I'd have to see if it's a total pain.

Consider yourself modded.

The PDF I posted had all the height, weight and language stuff - you can get it from there. I was going to choose the Covenant of Preservation, but ended up not liking the powers as much. I realize that playing a Deva gives me automatically better INT, but I'm finding that I really like playing a more well-rounded character.

I will follow your DEX recommendation, and add those points to INT. I also agree about the Hide armor (especially with my Jack of All Trades training). Otherwise, I think I'm going to keep her as is. Thanks!

Ok, I am back and working on the character a little bit. His name and color (navy) are now listed at the bootom of my post. I will try to get him finished by tomorrow.

Are we all set then? Do we have six players and six characters? If so, then I can begin tonight. For those of you who haven't chosen a pic for your character yet, please email me the jpeg file of the pic you choose. You don't have to change your avatar image, but it might be nice to have a battle token pic for the current character you're playing.

I'll use the icon on my character sheet, which is from the Character Builder, so you should have it, Viktor.

Mike, your sheets has Sun Strike and Vanguard's Lightning for at wills, and your stat block has Sun Strike and Divine Bolts. What's the story?

The story is that I forgot to change the sheet =) I'm taking Divine Bolts to replace Vanguard's Lightning. I'll change it tomorrow at work.

Okay, as promised, we begin tonight. I will post under Coppernight Hold in just a few minutes. I'm merely setting the scene for now, giving you the opportunity for you to describe and intoduce your characters to each other. Take as much time as you'd like. I encourage you to each give a brief summary of what you want the others to know about your characters and to begin interacting.

Question on Channel Divinity powers. I have two, and I can use one per encounter. Do they need to be "prepared" like spells? Do I need to pick one I'll use for the day, or can I choose any one of my CD powers in any given encounter?

You do not need to prepare CD powers. Just pick whichever one you want during the encounter, but you can only use one. However, there are some magical items, feats, etc. that allow use of more than one CD per encounter. Food for future thought. It may be a good idea to use a different text color for your CD's or use something like: CD: Abjure Undead to clearly indicate they are CD's.

"Rebuke Undead" is awesome...if I'm fighting the undead. Otherwise it's useless. But that's a nice change from having to choose which powers I want for a day before the day begins as a wizard.

So, it looks like delve 2 may be ending in about a week or so (those wolves don't look so tough!). Jonathan had volunteered to DM delve 3 from Dungeon Delves. Is that still okay with you, Jonathan? If you've changed your mind for any reason or can't right now, someone else could step in. Do you have a copy of the Dungeon Delves PDF? If not, maybe we can send it to you, but it's about 19 MB so the email accounts that I use won't work. Maybe Gary has ones with larger attachment allowances.

Whenever you're ready, you can create a new topic for the delve, since Mike has already made you a moderator here.

The rest of us can begin discussing our plans for character choice in this thread. I am planning on playing either a Shielding Cleric (leader focused on healing, protecting, and hardly doing any damage) or Illusionist Wizard or Guardian Druid. Leaning towards the cleric.

I can send Jon just the pages for Delve 3, which should work on most servers.

I enjoyed Khorvan, but think I will try a paladin this time with some Divine Power options (or maybe a melee cleric if Adam plays someone other than Moroth).

Here is my Elf Rogue for Delve 3. He is optimized for mobility, to hit, and not getting hit by opportunity attacks. He has several powers that grant a lot of shifting with an attack, and bonuses to hit (I think he will be at something like +15 to hit during his first turn against anyone that hasn't acted yet), and he has a 21 AC against opportunity attacks.

My feats and powers are pretty much set in stone for now, but I am willing to listen about items if people have suggestions. Flesh Seeker's grants a Free Action Encounter power of when hitting with an enemy, you gain +1 power bonus to next attack against that target (I assume that is just attack rolls, as it does not really specify). Darkleaf gives a +2 bonus to AC against the first attack against me each encounter. Physical Resolve Amulet gives +2 to saving throws against poison, weakened, slowed, or immobilized.

Elinar's strategy is to move fast and often, bouncing around the battlefield. He will probably use his Action Points early in battles, as he gets auto combat advantage against creatures that haven't moved. Once he has attacked one creature, he will do his best to move around to an entirely different one. As long as he is not surrounded, he can pretty much extricate himself from any situation.

Things that directly affect the group:
Fox's Gambit (Encounter)- On a hit, I negate any marks on me and the target cannot mark anyone until the end of my next turn.
Group Awareness (Racial Trait): Non-elf allies within 5 sq gain +1 to perception.

Hey, didn't I already claim it? I just got the books!

Edit: Ok, I just looked...I said maybe Level 5. I wouldn't mind doing 4 instead, but Viktor claimed it first, so that is fine.

I don't mind if you play, since I know you won't ruin it for anyone else and try to pretend your character hasn't a clue, right.
