I just found this, haven't read up on the Nine Hells yet, but I am totally interested.  If you'll have me, I'm there. 

I'll post up some backstory once I have time to read about the setting, and see what class I'd like to play (probably a caster of some sort, though)

Material allowed: Keep it official WotC stuff, no mags whatsoever, pretty much anything 3.5e goes as does most of unupdated 3.0 material.
Hmm.... this does include Unearthed Arcana with all it variants and Savage Species with its rediculous templates. Sure you want to allow those?

On the roll 4d6, do we have to roll those at invisible castle? I have rolled there a couple of times and never had good ability scores...

Edit: PHB 2 rebuilding also falls within the 3.5 books allowed, and also LA buyoff...

There's a sidebar in Races of Destiny that says if you play in a world with changelings they qualify for both of those
No houserule required then.

Tshern, if we use 4d6 and it comes out to like 22 PB can we use 32 or are we stuck with that choice? Just curious
Let's say I allow rerolling anything less than 25 PB. Use your own nick for rolling and give me a link to it.

Quote from: DetectiveJabsco
I'm 100% in, I need a new PbP.
I will Get together a mock character sheet asap.
No hurry with the sheet, the game won't start before 21st of June. At least that is the tentative plan, I might have a little vacation next week, which would give me some time...

Quote from: AlisAtAn
Those PDF`s dont wanna come to my computer. I get "file can not be read, please try again later" from Firefox.

I want to do a Archivist ---> Malconvoker if we go with Merchants in Dis. Makes for great fluff and I always wanted to try one.
I know, the Gates of Hell are a bit problematic. Try clicking one of the links and then wait until it has loaded the entirety of that chapter before clicking anything again, switching windows or anything. That ought to work.

Quote from: Smudgyhandsman
I'll express my interest, though I won't be able to focus too much on making my character now. Finals week is coming up, and I'm being crushed with homework, so my schedule is pretty tight. But since it's starting after June 21st, that makes things a lot easier for me.  As for a character, I haven't played a BSF in awhile, so I was thinking of a Paladin of Tyranny/Hexblade/Pious Templar, or at least something along those lines.

If need be, I'll give up my slot to anyone who isn't in a PbP already, because I'm already playing one. Everyone should get a chance, it's fun!
Cool beans, good luck with your RL!

Quote from: Straw_Man
Would you like build Tshern, or should we wait till we know who's in?
No need to submit anything, but if you have something in your mind and want to build it I can review it.

The Gates of Hell is good for this. I suggest reading up to Dispater's entry in chapter 9 and if possible, description of Dis in Fiendish Codex II.

Oh yes. Nine Hells > Abyss.

As per gentlemen's contract, I don't want to be seeing infinite tentacle attacks or anything. Use 3.5 whenever possible and simplicity in character is always a plus, even though I don't require you to reduce your effectiveness by decreasing the amount of sources excessively.

Quote from: Ieniemienie

Not necessarily, but that is preferable. Remember that you can also pick 32 PB.

Quote from: Ieniemienie
Edit: PHB 2 rebuilding also falls within the 3.5 books allowed, and also LA buyoff...
Feat retraining allowed, no level rebuilding. I haven't read how LA buyoff works, so I'd prefer people abstaining from it, but I am not banning it per se.

A Spellthief? I am yet to see one in action, sounds like great fun.

Questions:
Reflavored Church Inquisitor to Devilish Inquisitor?
Bone Knight is okay?
Are there any PrC in the GoH? And if so, which chapter, so I can research my ideas.
Is Mephistophles the archdevil in charge of seige warfare? I remember reading something in one of the Fiendish Codexes about his creation of living seige engines...
I love LE games. :D

Prestige classes of the Perdition are in chapter 3.

Church Inquisitor is okay. Dispater's fluff actually says a few times that he is very closely associated to Inquisition domain...

Bone knight cool.

Nope, Bael is the one responsible for that. Mephistopheles is the Lord of the Eight, responsible for general pwnage.

Everyone: I am considering giving everyone a free feat I consider to go well with their fluff. A feat generally considered weak, but still something that suits the flavour. When I have chosen the players (probably rolling tonight, too bad for anyone who missed this. You can still join though!) you can start giving my suggestions.

Edit: Also, web enhancements are in and if I find a way to reach them, Untapped potential, Hyperconsciousness and Frank's and K' works ought to be fine as well. The problem is, as of now I have no access to them, but you can send a PM of whatever you want.

Edit2: Reflavoured classes from WotC are generally okay, but need to be clarified and linked with/to me first.

Quick link to Level Adjustment buyoff on D20SRD
"Once the total of a character's class levels (not including any Hit Dice from his creature type or his level adjustment) reaches three times his level adjustment, his level adjustment is eligible to be decreased by 1.

For instance, a gnoll's level adjustment is +1. When a gnoll character gains his third class level (remember, the gnoll's 2 starting Hit Dice don't count), he can pay an XP cost to reduce his level adjustment to +0.

If the level adjustment is greater than +1, this process repeats until the creature's level adjustment reaches +0. Each time, use the creature's current level adjustment to determine the point at which the level adjustment can go down by 1. For example, a drow (level adjustment +2) may drop to level adjustment +1 after gaining her sixth class level, and then to +0 after gaining an additional three class levels."

It sounds like a fun idea and I do have some spare time available for at least the next couple of months, so consider me interested for camp Lawful Evil as well :)

It seems that lawful evil is the new black, so I think that is the way we are rolling.

Remember you have 2 points to add to any one stat and another 3 from the level ups.

Duly noted. And if I am selected, I'll let the party decide if we need a Lockric or a Clarcher and use those 5 points appropriately :D

I'm dying to see a Bone Knight in action besides just the occasional duel :D (I was almost tempted by the Cardinal of Asmodeus PrC by the way, but it's too expensive  :weep

With you DMing, Tshern, I am definitely up for it!

My character will be a dark-knight-type working for Lixer, riding a dragon.

Everything I learned about DnD I learned from Frank Trollman at The Gaming Den... but nowadays, my work space is the New DnD Wiki.

Check them both out!

Assuming I do end up getting picked I think I'm leaning towards either a beatstick role (either 'DPS' or 'Tank') or a general arcane caster role. I haven't actually played that last role in a game yet though, the only experience I've had with it is with some thought exercises and throwing 'GOD' NPC's at my party :P

As far as my level of opt-fu goes, it depends on the game I'm in. I usually hover at level 3, maybe some aspects of level 4, but very little if any at all and only in real CO games (using the 'what's your level of co?-system' that's been posted on these boards before). I try to avoid overkill and limit myself to what is needed to survive.

As for the gentleman's agreement, I think it's a great idea, I just have a quick question about it though. If I do end up using something cheesy, will the equally cheesy opposed actions be directed only at me or at the party as a whole?

Meatwall (Aka Crusader) or Annoyer (aka Wizard) are in my wishlist for now. As for the background, I see people leaning towards sweet evulness, I'll go with the flow and be a bad dude if I play :p

Depends on the level of cheesiness. If you use Abyssal rretraining those nasty Balors will be coming for the entire party.

Anyway, I am probably upping the player limit. Six victims are getting in.
