Alternate: Cartographer525,

A sickness has come unto the simple mining community of Duvik's Pass, poisoning their wells and blighting their crops. With the pestilence leaving the strongest men of the town's guard a few short days away from death, the burden of descending into the mines and purging the wellspring of whatever evil has settled there falls to an intrepid band of adventurers. Can these noble heroes prevail within the depths of Duvik's Pass, or will they too fall victim to the perils of The Burning Plague?...

@TheOneWhoCallCrow - Thanks for the Summary. Great pic!  I've invited you so you should see the table on your Campaign Manager now.  BTW Your AC should be 13 with DEX.  

Sorry to jump in,but is this burning plague published adventure? I'm wondering cause 2 months ago I played it altough in PF.


@Haytam - Yes its The Burning Plague adventure from WoTC.
I am available. I will make a character tonight before Poisened Shadows tonight.
@jonathan_sicari - Welcome in brother. Ok i will wait for your character summary.

Im available, I can make up a character before the end of the night.
@Llaqus - Welcome in brother. Ok i will wait for your character summary.

I have some time that day.  Still have a spot open?

It looks like only the druid is chosen.  I will be making up a Mountain Dwarf Wizard. 
Thank you for the invitaion, but I must work ear;y the following morning - Have Fun!


I am on GTO / RPGTable Online as "MorphoPracktix" IMAGE(http://www.nodiatis.com/pub/26.jpg)

I present you Thoradin Stinkfist.  Character sheet is here.  Please double check it.  I don't think i made any mistakes, but they could be there.
@SarialMorphoPracktix - Aye no prob brother. Another time i hope!

@Pizzamancer - Welcome in brother. Thanks for the Summary.   I've invited you so you should see the table on your Campaign Manager now.

Hey guys!

     I really appreciate the invite but I cannot make it tomorrow/today. Thank you for thinking of me!

-Sir Dave

PS: Have fun storming the castle! 
@HalconLoco - Aye no prob Loco. Another time i hope!
I just noticed an issue, I cant seem to access the 4/15/13 packet, I only seem to access the 4/11/13 packet. and I think there are some differences for instances your example characters two weapon fighting isnt the same as whats in my packet this is what mine says for two weapon fighting:

Two-­Weapon Fighting:
When you wield two light melee weapons at the same time,
you can use your action to make an attack with each weapon.
You don’t add your ability modifier to the damage of the
second attack. (also this is a standard action not a feat)
Packet 4/15 is the lastest upload. Its essentially Packet 4/11 with Mud Sorcerer Tomb's monsters incorporated. The rest is the same IIRC (including Two-Weapon Fighting)
ah ok then i guess that example was just an on the fly thing or was made from some earlier materials it confused me. especially trying to figure out how he got 18 in a stat without using dice rolls. If thats the case i pretty much have my character down just need to put it on paper ... or in this case in a post.

@Pizzamancer - Nice pic this Dwarf is sick!

@Llaqus - Thanks for the Summary. Cool art too!  I've invited you so you should see the table on your Campaign Manager now.

@Crow - What spells have you prepared?  I am working on my character a bit and was wondering if you were thinking of Thunderwave.  If so, I will take Burning Hands instead of Thunderwave.

@DM - Can I use Int for my performance check?  I am kind of going for the magical minstrel who uses Minor Illusion during his performances. 
@Crow - What spells have you prepared?

Good berries and fog cloud. 

Edit: Good Berries for healing and they have a bonus against disease since we are dealing with a
plague. Who knows, maybe I help out the people suffering from this?

Fog Cloud can be pretty handy. One for hiding and two to block line of sight. 
Cast this on a group of range attacks and they are force into melee. 

Any chance I can convince you to take any spell besides Fog Cloud?

His strategies are built around that spell. 

My guy is built like a controller. Once I cast Fog Cloud, you are in my domain. 

That is great and all but it also takes the rest of the party out of the fight when they can't see anything.

I got a spell that can fix that. 

Hehe.  Me too.  It is called Thunderwave.
damn, was so busy with Kat and faea, I forgot to build my character. Think I'm gonna go for a warbringer cleric. I'll have him written up this afternoon.
