Doh, here I am being the slow poke. In my defense, Josh told me I had until the weekend :P

I'm still open it suggestions on item changes and power changes. I went with haunting spirits because it's an at-will I can use to grant CA to the rogue. That Goliath warden looks like he can knock people on their butts all day long, so I don't know if it's still needed.

Wow. Embedding links to all your powers is a great idea. How did you do it and how long did it take to do?

Thanks.

Sadly, it took a lot of time, but that's because I had to learn HTML in the process. I can't program in any language for beans, but I'm comfortable enough with systems to copy and paste, then bang my head against the keyboard until I get basic things to work.

Getting an image of the power/item is fairly easy. I just took a screen cap of the book pdf or character builder description, and then cropped the image. Holding alt while pressing the print screen button, in Windows, lets you copy the active window, as opposed to the entire desktop, to the clipboard. Then I saved it as a png file and uploaded it to my domain. Random heads up, I've disallowed linking to the images from anywhere that isn't deadgoblins.

It's probably not worth the pain for a delve, as the characters are not long term. I wanted to test things out for a possible option for Josh's upcoming campaign.

The character builder provides a great way to get readable images, but it builds in your modifiers. That might be ok, but I'd rather not remake all the images every other level or so. Another option would be to just use the image with wrong modifiers as a reminder of the power and ignore the character specific details. You'll have the updated and real character sheet and/or power cards in any case. I was mostly trying to let everyone else know what my abilities were. The fastest option using that method would be to copy the powers from the character sheet made by the character builder. I think that Gary often provides copies for people.

If I could figure out how to edit the power cards provided by the character builder, or just find a fillable power card online somewhere, the modifiers wouldn't be an issue. With Wizards not selling pdfs of new books, legal options for new powers are either the character builder or scanning/photocopying your own book. As far as I'm concerned, using the images for a friendly game is well within fair use. :P

I've pasted the code I stole/modified below. I made things such that clicking on the links to the power images opens things in a new window/tab. That's the target="_blank" junk. I considered having each power as a bullet with the expanding tree showing the image, but that would have sucked for Gary on his blackberry. It would have also required everyone to download each image even if they left the tree collapsed. I like the idea, but I'm not going to secretly leech that much bandwidth from people; esp. if people are using their smartphones.

Another edit. I use a great little program called notepad++. If you copy and paste the code, then set the language to html, it will color code things and make them much easier to figure out.

Thanks, that was a very thorough description. I too am not very familiar with programming, but if I understood correctly then the key component is having one's own domain as a storage base.

You could probably use an image hosting service. has a list of those that allow you to link to the images from another website. Alternatively, anyone with their own domain could host the images. In theory, I should even be able to set up accounts with their own subdomain on under my domain. I'm not positive how to do that yet.

Well, I guess there's another free way to do it, but it doesn't look as neat as yours. Anyone can embed a tinypic.com uploaded image into their post and it will open a window with that image's URL, such as the one below.

Sorry. I thought I had added a link to a few free pic hosting sites in my last post. Deadglobins is responding really slow for me right now, so I can't test out code with the tinypic url. I don't see why it wouldn't work.

EDIT:
Things seem to be working better now.

Status Update:

Nathan - Thaelan, Dwarf Shaman (I have everything)
Gary - Thranduin Wildleaf, Elf Seeker (I have everything)
Viktor - Alysandra Novakri, Kalashtar Paladin (need Portrait and Char Sheet)
Josh - Jauthak, Goliath Warden (need Portrait and Char Sheet)
Marek - Korg, Half-orc Rogue (need Portrait and Stat Block)

Before I make the first post, I would like at least some sort of Portrait from everyone. Then, some roleplaying can be done and it gives some time to finish the Char Sheets and Stat Blocks if need be.

Just got home from a party. I'll send the char sheet and portrait tomorrow (as well as take my turn in Scales if I'm up).

Ok, I guess I will just use the default portraits for Korg and Jauthuk. I still need the stat block for Korg and character sheet for Jauthuk.

Also, I'll get the first post up sometime this afternoon, but combat won't begin until I have those.

Korg used the default portrait in Delves 1 and 2, and Josh posted the default goliath portrait as his avatar, so those are safe bets. :)

I sent the character sheet to jbmandir@gmail.com, is that your email Josh? Also my stat sheet is up on the top of page 3 of this post, do you need me to put that into the raider's holdout delve?

That's my email. I haven't gotten it yet, though. Hmmm...

And, I guess I forgot about that stat block. You can wait until your turn in the encounter to put it in the main thread.

Josh, I apparently did receive it. Mike had mentioned he wasn't receiving DeadGoblins notifications and then checked his spam in gmail and that's where they were. Made me think to check my spam, and sure enough it was there for some reason. Thanks for the character sheet.
