Gary, if you go psion, I'll go ardent. If you go ardent, I'll go psion. I really like the idea to play-test the augmentation powers before PHB3, so people can feel more comfortable with switching classes if they want or if they are used by enemies.

Besides, I can play the summoner druid a different time in a delve or campaign.

I've decided I'll go with...

Srivath Vediya - Kalashtar Ardent

http://garyh.net/SrivathVediya-KalashtarArdent5v2.pdf

Made a couple of tweaks from my first draft - modified the stats per Viktor's suggestion, and changed a magic item. Stat block to come tomorrow or this weekend ... it's late!

Since Gary is playing and ardent for delve 5, I will play a psion in delve 5.

(I have decided to play an ardent for Josh's Eberron campaign)

Welcome Jasmine! I would like to say how glad I am to have another woman playing on DeadGoblins (besides all the imaginary women being played by men of course). I hope you have fun.

Hi Jasmine.

I'm one of those players with some imaginary women PC's and it never did quite work for Emily. ;)

Welcome and feel free to pick just about any character class you'd like. If this is the first time you've done any role-playing at all, then you might want to try one of the initial classes that appear in the first player's handbook (cleric, fighter, paladin, rogue, ranger, warlock, warlord, wizard). Of those, the easiest to play at first are probably fighter, rogue, and ranger.

Having said that, any class from any of the books is okay too.

Welcome, Jasmine.

If you have never played a DnD style game before, I agree with Viktor. I would specifically recommend the ranger, since you basically choose melee or ranged combat and more or less point and click. The fighter and rogue are a little more tactically based, which you might want to save until you are comfortable with the basic rules.

I will follow up with Ari, and it looks like we will have 2 more joining us, Nathan (we can call him Nathan 2) and Sam. I will also follow up with them re: characters, as they are both avid 3.5 players, but new to 4e.

Hi. I'm Sam. Jon invited me, and I'm really excited to play with you all. I have a few years experience with DnD3.5, D20 modern and Dark Heresy, but this will be my first try at 4.0, so any advice would be greatly appreciated. I'm thinking about playing a dwarf fighter, maybe sword and board.

Hi Sam, great to have you aboard! I played a lot of 3.X myself, and really enjoy 4e.

Your dwarf sword (or, more likely, axe or hammer :) ) and board fighter is a perfect fit, as we needed a defender.

Gary - Kalashtar Ardent (Leader)
Viktor - Tiefling Psion (Controller)
Jasmine - Elf Ranger (Striker)
Sam - Dwarf Fighter (Defender)
Josh - ???
Nathan - ??? (I see he signed up on the boards today as well)

Fantastic. I'm being helpful :mrgreen: I'll probably use an axe, but sword and board was more fun to say.

Hi Beth! Happy to see you joining us here.

For Delve 5, we'll be using 5th level PC's. You can use any race, class, or supplemental rule from any official D&D book or online magazine.

Level 5 characters start with three magic items, one each of level 6, 5 and 4, and 840 GP to spend on further magical items. Normal, non-magical gear is free.

The easiest way to create your PC is to use the official Character Builder. When Adam played in Delve #2 in June , I installed the full Character Builder up to that point on his laptop, so you have (assuming he hasn't uninstalled it) a pretty broad range of options in there.

When I'm at your place for Strato on 1/9, I'll update your Character Builder installation to the current version with all the stuff that's come out since June, and if you're still working on your character and we haven't started Delve #5, I'm happy to help walk you through stuff. In the meantime, I'm also happy to discuss your character with you here, over e-mail, or over IM.

Glad you could join the party! ;)

Hi Beth! Well, Gary seems to have summed that up all rather nicely. One small request: can you make your profile image on here a bit smaller? With some large maps, the screen will go way off to the right. ;)
