You mean like early 1970's?

I came to it in the late 1970's, before there was an AD&D though.

Thanks..I was curious how it went. I am trying to play via message board with a group run by a fellow I met at an Unschoolers convention.

I played back in the good ol days when Gary Gygax and the boys first produced the game.

I will send everyone a sparkmail on Monday (or this weekend) about how we can do this. For now, you could "Copy & Paste" your character stats on to 'word' or 'excel' and keep track of your stats that way. We will use the dice log link in my signature to roll. You may need to open an account there but make sure it's public so we all can see what you rolled.

Also, this'll be more of a 1 shot adventure with no real story depth, but if it works okay and you'd want to do it again I can get a story going and whatnot.

I am not in a rush to get the turn over with so take your time replying (real life comes first!). If for some reason you're unable to take the time to do your turn just let me know and I'll take your turn for the good of the character.

Lastly, here's what I will tell you about this adventure.

***You all have been hired by the local Baroness (Lady Belltruss) to recover a sacred scroll from a wizard who resides in the village of Thunderdahl. The wizard has a store front in the village where he sells simple weapons and tools for cheap but his specialty is making them magical for a much higher price. The sacred scroll he stole from the Baroness is what makes this possible.

She is willing to make one of your weapons magical upon the return of the sacred scroll and an additional reward of 100 gold pieces each.

xxxxxxxOne last thing about the story: The Wizard (Gronin) has been known to associate with small but fierce underground creatures to do certain "dirty work" for him.

Hey I guess i will be the 'one to go'. I haven't played 3.5 in a long time. I think it would be really great if I could play the fighter. I usually play humans anyway, just females... :)

I'm kinda fond of being a healer, so I think I'll try to tackle Eberk, if that's alright.

I never even realized there were character sheets for all of these characters. I loved the artwork of them in the handbook...

I'm willing to try. I would like to play Aramil. I have an affinity to elves. LOVE THEM! I didn't play 3.5v very much, but we have the books on the shelf...I'll just brush up a bit. As I have said before, I work crazy shifts. Normally, there are 2 weeks in the month that I work doubles...those weeks I am not to be found on Thurs., Fri., and Sat. I'm pretty scarce on Sun too... I would completely understand if that's a problem...just let me know.

we would play where you'd be in a situation and and be given a certain amount of time to respond like a day or two. You could use the link in my signature for the roll of the dice as it can be recorded and seen by others. I have three pregenerated characters already made so you could pick from one of them.

How exactly would all this work? What I mean is...would we meet at a set time? I LOVE playing, and jump at any offer...but...I work weekends and doubles etc. My schedules rarely mesh with others. Plus i've never played over the internet before...would we just play like we're messaging right now? Like I send you my roll or whatever? Fill me in... cause it sounds fun.

Hello!? Anyone else want to do it? I can run a two to 4 PC adventure. Perhaps let me know what your concerns are. I'm sure time is an issue but we can take our time and/or I'll make it easy on time....just let me know.

Hi, this is for anyone who knows the D&D v3.5 rpg and wants to experiment with D&D via message board.

Let's start with this:
I have four pre-generated characters (the ones from the v3.0 starter game 2004). This will be a first come first pick for PCs. Reply with the character you want to play. I'll be the Dungeon Master. This will be mostly a hack-n-slash adventure. You can "Role-Play" your character to make the game more fun. Here are the pre-generated characters:

----------------------------------------

Eberk - Dwarf Cleric Level I
Eberk follows Moradin, the god of the dwarves. His training has included the use of both healing magic and the warhammer. As a dwarf, Eberk feels at home underground. With his god backing him up, there is no dungeon he is afraid to enter.
Dwarves live underground and are famous for thier fighting ability. They can see in the dark.
Eberk's job on the adventuring team is to protect his teammates with spells, but he can hold his own in a fight, too.
Hit Points: 7
Armor Class: 15
Initiative: -1
Speed: 20 ft.
Attack:
Malee +1 Warhammer for d8+1 damage
Ranged -1 Crossbow for d8+1 damage
Fortitude +5
Reflex -1
Will +4
Strength 12 / +1
Dexterity 8 / -1
Constitution 16 / +3
Intelligence 10 / +0
Wisdom 15 / +2
Charisma 11 / +0
Special Abilities: Protective Ward - once per adventure, the character he touches gets +1 on thier next saving throw.
Spells (you can only cast one of each of these per adventure):
Zero-Level Spells
~Cure Minor Wounds
~Detect Magic
~Read Magic
1st-Level Spells
~Bless
~Cure Light Wounds
~Protection from Evil

Armor: Scalemail, heavy steel shield

Gear: Backpack, holy symbol, potion of Cure Light Wounds.

----------------------------------------

Aramil - Elf Sorcerer Level I
While most elf spellcasters follow in the proud and ancient elven tradition of arcane study, Aramil taught himself how to cast seplls. He doesn't use spellbooks. He casts spells based on intuition and inner power. He likes to think that dragon blood from a distant ancestor runs in his veins, and that is the source of his special powers.
Aramil's job is to cast spells on the most dangerous or vulverable enemies. He needs to choose his targets carefully, and often he uses his bow to save his magic spells for when they really count.
Elves are experts at swordplay and archery. Even though sorcerers don't usually have much skill with weapons, Aramil is handy with swords and bows just because he's an elf.
Hit Points: 7
Armor Class: 13
Initiative: +3
Speed: 30 ft.
Attack:
Malee -1 Longsword for d8-1 damage
Ranged +3 Shortbow for d6-1 damage
Fortitude +0
Reflex +3
Will +3
Strength 8 / -1
Dexterity 16 / +3
Constitution 11 / +0
Intelligence 10 / +0
Wisdom 12 / +1
Charisma 15 / +2

Spells (you can cast a total of five zero-level spells and four 1st-level spells per day):
Zero-Level Spells
~Daze
~Detect Magic
~Light
~Read Magic
1st-Level Spells
~Magic Missile (d4+1 damage)
~Mage Armor

Armor: None

Gear: Backpack, 10 torches, flint & steel and a spell component pouch.

----------------------------------------
-

Lidda - Halfling Rogue Level I
Lidda is a halfling. Halflings are about half as tall as people, and they tend to be sneaky. Lidda is no exception.
Lidda's job on an advennturing team is to handle tricky things, such as locked doors or traps. In combat, she does well if she can sneak attack her opponents.
Hit Points: 7
Armor Class: 16
Initiative: +7
Speed: 20 ft.
Attack:
Malee +1 Rapier for d4 damage
Ranged +4 Shortbow for d4 damage
Fortitude +2
Reflex +6
Will +1
Strength 10 / +0
Dexterity 17 / +3
Constitution 13 / +1
Intelligence 14 / +2
Wisdom 10 / +0
Charisma 8 / -1
Special Abilities: "Sneak Attack" On the first round of combat, if Lidda attacks a creature before it acts, she deals an additional d6 damage (d4+d6). This only works against creatures with internal organs.

Armor: Leather

Gear: Backpack, 10 torches, fling & steel and thieve's tools.

----------------------------------------
-

Regdar - Human Fighter Level I
Regdar is a champion of good, pledging his mighty sword to the cause of justice. He adventures to put down evil and to gain skill and experience that he can use in his crusade. Of all the weapons he has been trained to use, Regdar prefers a greatsword, even though it prevents him from using a shield to protect himself.
Regdar's job on the adventuring team is to kill the monsters and protect his teammates.
Hit Points: 12
Armor Class: 15
Initiative: +1
Speed: 20 ft.
Attack:
Malee +4 Warhammer for 2d6+3 damage
Ranged +2 Shortbow for d6 damage
Fortitude +4
Reflex +1
Will -1
Strength 15 / +2
Dexterity 12 / +1
Constitution 14 / +2
Intelligence 10 / +0
Wisdom 8 / -1
Charisma 13 / +1
Special Abilities: "Cleave" Once per round, if Regdar kills a monster with the Greatsword, he can immediately make another Greatsword attack attack against another monster next to him. "Power Attack" If you want, before Regdar attacks with the Greatsword you can take -1 penalty on the attack roll. If you hit you do an additional +2 damage.

Armor: Scalemail

Gear: Backpack, 10 torches, Flint & Steel.
