Just a reminder of our one shot tonight. 5-9 PST/6-10 Arizona Time/8-12 Montreal Time

I don't know if people want me to make the characters again, or want to make their own.

Stats =18,16,14,14,12,10

5 5th level characters (multiclass=3/3). One character must be a 5th level barbarian (as he is a local, and will give some clues as to language etc.)

Pick all normal gear, but I had better pick magic. Magic will be 3 or 4 +1 type items. So weapons and armour are easy. But a wand of Mag missile with 5 charges would be a 1st level item, a scroll with 5 1st level spells or 3 2nd level spells, or 1 3rd level spells would be= to a +1 item, 3 x CLW potions would be = to a +1 item, and so on.

(I would emphasise defence and fixing bad things that happen in spell selection as much as fireballs and the like, but it's your call)

The module, if played right, looks tricks and trap/thinking heavy and light on combat. If played wrong...reverse those

Your party is lost! You should never have abandoned the ship and struck out into the marshes, but your pursuers were closing on your trail and it seemed the only way. Stumbling onward through the fens, your party makes for higher ground ahead. As you cross the ridge, the sun sinks below the horizon. Breathless, the party drops to the ground and you try to catch your wind with the welcome rest. Somewhere, behind you, comes the sound of distant shouts. Scrambling back to your feet, you force your way further into the brush, past great carved stones which lie overturned on the ground

Ahead, in the woods, you see a clearing. There is an ancient ruin- a worn and overgrown pyramid fills the courtyard, shining in the moonlight, seeming almost brighter than the moon itself.

You tread carefully across cracked and overgrown flagstones, stepping over fallen and shattered pillars, pushing aside vines and briars. As you approach the temple, you hear men crashing through the brush behind you. Then the earth suddenly shudders and gapes open beneath your feet and you are falling amidst a roar of collapsed masonry. Dust fills the air and the moonlight disappears as the darkness swallows you


Riddick: Looks clear.

[Johns steps out. A creature runs at Johns from its hiding spot before taking flight.]

Johns: You said it was clear!

Riddick: I said it 'looked' clear.

Johns: Well, how does it look now?

Riddick: Looks clear

OK good. Hopefully, the Treeboreans will have made up their characters too.

One thing to note: bring your reading glasses! I have entered the many, long room descriptions into a text file which I hope I can cut and paste into openrpg. So no troubles hearing/remembering me read it all
