Title: Welcome to Kramerland Part III...
Post by: Sacrificial Lamb on October 22, 2010, 05:12:10 PM

And so it begins...


...our hybrid AD&D campaign will now be a hybrid 3.x campaign. Our AD&D campaign is being converted to 3.x. The players will be using mostly 3.5 rules for character creation, though Mutt's character, Glint, will be created using custom rules explained below. Additionally, we're using a couple other products:

* GameMastery Critical Hit Deck:
* GameMastery Critical Fumble Deck:

As a DM, I'm going to use a highly-streamlined version of the 3e rules for NPCs, because character creation for monsters and NPCs is a long, painstaking process, and I don't wish to spend every waking moment of my life preparing material for the game. This also won't make NPCs either stronger or weaker in combat, but just easier for me to adjudicate during play, so be warned...

Okay. Last week, Mutt had a cute little conniption fit because he didn't like how his character was converted to 3.x. Despite your irritating behavior last week, Mutt, I have decided to cut you some slack. Listed below is a conversion of your AD&D Skills & Powers character to 3.x rules. I covered practically everything there to the best of my ability, and spent many hours working on this, so there better not be any more complaints, pouting, or diaper-wetting. Take note that the produce flame spell does not seem to set people on fire in this system, and I'm having your character receive the base attack bonus of a Cleric, due to a desire to keep this class from being utterly ridiculous. There are no 90% immunities in this game, because actions and resistances are converted to a d20, so that stuff has been changed to a d20 modifier. Writing this took a great deal of if all this doesn't please you, Mutt, then honestly, I give up.

Anyway, this is neither a balanced class nor balanced race for 3.5, and both are in fact, more powerful than they should be, but I'm allowing you this much latitude, Mutt, because you don't have enough mastery over this game system to destroy my campaign, so I'm not particularly worried.

Even though I can copy and paste pure text, I don't know how to create tables on this site, nor do I know how to copy and paste the tables I wrote up in OpenOffice, so I'll just have to slightly modify and abbreviate what I wrote in OpenOffice. Here it is below...


[1.] +2 Dexterity, -2 Constitution: Grey Elves are more graceful, but less robust than Humans.
[2.] Medium: As Medium-sized creatures, Grey Elves have no modifiers due to their size.
[3.] Speed: Base land speed is 30 feet.
[4.] Immunities: Immunity to magic Sleep and Charm effects.
[5.] Infravision: Grey Elves are able to see in normal darkness up to 60 feet without light. Strong sources of light (fire, lanterns, torches, etc.) tend to blind this vision, so Infravision does not function efficiently in the presence of such light sources. Invisible creatures are not detectable by Infravision.
[6.] Weapon Proficiency: Grey Elves receive the Martial Weapon Proficiency feats for the longsword, shortsword, longbow (including composite longbow), and shortbow (including composite shortbow) as bonus feats, as they value the arts of swordplay and archery.
[7.] Weapon Expertise: Grey Elves receive a +1 bonus to attack rolls with the weapons listed above.
[8.] Stealth: +4 bonus to Hide and Move Silently checks when not wearing metal armor, unless it is an Elven Chain Shirt or Elven Chainmail.
[9.] Portal Awareness: A Grey Elf who merely passes within 10 feet of a secret or concealed door is entitled to a Search check to notice it as if he were actively looking for it. He also receives a +4 bonus to Search checks when seeking secret or concealed doors.
[10.] Necromantic Resistance: Immunity to energy-draining, ability damage, and ability drain effects. Grey Elves also receive a +4 racial saving throw bonus against necromancy spells and effects.
[11.] Automatic Languages: Common, Draconic, and Elven.
[12.] Bonus Languages: Any (other than secret languages, such as Druidic).
[13.] Favored Class: Any.


Dark Paladins have the following game statistics.

Abilities: Wisdom determines how powerful a spell you cast, how many spells  you can cast per day , and how hard those spells are to resist. A high Constitution score improves your Hit Points, and a high Charisma score improves your ability to turn undead.


Hit Die:

Class Skills: Appraise (Int), Bluff (Cha), Concentration (Con), Craft (Int), Decipher Script (Int), Diplomacy (Cha), Disable Device (Int), Heal (Wis), Hide (Dex), Intimidate (Cha), Knowledge (all skills, taken individually) (Int), Listen (Wis), Move Silently (Dex), Open Lock (Dex), Profession (Wis), Ride (Dex), Search (Int), Sense Motive (Wis), Speak Language (none), Spellcraft (Int), Survival (Wis), Swim (Str), and Use Magic Device (Cha).

Skill Points at 1st Level:
(4 + Int modifier) x 4.
Skill Points at Each Additional Level: 4 + Int modifier.

Class Features

All of the following are class features of the Dark Paladin.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency:
You are proficient with all simple and martial weapons and with all armor (heavy, medium, and light) and shields (except tower shields).

Aura (Ex): A Dark Paladin of a chaotic, evil, good, or lawful deity has a particularly powerful aura corresponding to the deity's alignment (see the detect evil spell for details). Dark Paladins who do not worship a specific deity but choose the Chaotic, Evil, Good, or Lawful domain have a similarly powerful aura of the corresponding alignment.

Spells: A Dark Paladin casts divine spells (the same type of spells available to a Cleric or Druid), which are drawn from his own spell list. Take note that his alignment might restrict him from casting certain spells opposed to his moral or ethical beliefs.

To prepare or cast a spell, a Dark Paladin must have a Wisdom score equal to at least 10 + the spell level (Wis 10 for 0 level spells, Wis 11 for 1st level spells, and so on). The Difficulty Class for a saving throw against a Dark Paladin's spells is 10 + the spell level + plus the Dark Paladin's Wisdom modifier.

The Dark Paladin casts a limited number of spells of each level per day. Additionally, he receives bonus spells per day if he has a high Wisdom score. He does not acquire spells from books or scrolls, nor does he prepare them through study. Instead, he meditates or prays for spells, receiving them through mystic insight, strength of faith, or divine inspiration. The Dark Paladin may prepare and cast any spell on the Dark Paladin spell list, provided that he can cast spells of that level, but he must choose which spells to prepare during his daily meditation.

Turn or Rebuke Undead (Su): Any Dark Paladin, regardless of alignment, has the power to affect undead creatures by channeling the power of his faith through his holy (or unholy) symbol.

A good Dark Paladin (or a neutral Dark Paladin who worships a good deity) can turn or destroy undead creatures. An evil Dark Paladin (or a neutral Dark Paladin who worships an evil deity) instead rebukes or commands such creatures. A neutral Dark Paladin of a neutral deity must choose whether his turning ability functions as that of a good Cleric or an evil Cleric. Once this choice is made, it cannot be reversed. A Dark Paladin may attempt to turn undead a number of times per day equal to 3 + his Charisma modifier. A Dark Paladin with 5 or more ranks in Knowledge (religion) gets a +2 bonus on turning checks against undead.

Weapon Focus:
You gain weapon focus, as a bonus feat.

Weapon Specialization:
You gain weapon specialization, as a bonus feat.

Signature Weapon: Choose one type of weapon, such as a longsword, or even an unarmed attack. This is your signature weapon, with which you are able to deliver more attacks per round. It provides you with an additional attack every round at your highest base attack bonus. The weapon must be one that you are proficient with.

Aura of Courage (Su): The Dark Paladin is immune to fear (magical or otherwise). Each ally within 10 feet of you gain a +4 morale bonus on saving throws against fear effects. This ability functions while you are conscious, but not if you are unconscious or dead.

Talent: A talent allows you to choose one of the following abilities at 1st level, 2nd level, and every two levels thereafter...

* Signature Weapon: You may gain the benefit of another signature weapon, in addition to the one you have now.

* Planar Ally (Sp): Once per day, you may use the equivalent of the planar ally, lesser spell, except that you may summon a creature equal to less than your Dark Paladin level plus two, and you pay no xp cost for doing so. Though this is a spell-like ability, it takes 10 minutes to summon the Elemental or Outsider, just like the spell. If you choose this ability more than once, then you can use it an additional time per day.

* Exotic Weapon Proficiency: You gain a bonus exotic weapon proficiency feat.

* Water Breathing (Ex): You can breathe underwater indefinitely and can freely use spells and other abilities underwater (always active).

* Identify (Sp): You may use up one of your daily turnings to use the equivalent of an identify spell, and doing so only requires a standard action.

* Regeneration (Sp): You gain something similar to a persistent regenerate light wounds spell that you may use only on yourself, though with some differences. Fire and acid deal normal damage to you, though if you lose a limb or body part, the lost portion regrows in one hour. You can reattach the severed member instantly by holding it to the stump. Damage dealt to you is treated as nonlethal damage, and you automatically cure yourself of nonlethal damage at a rate of 1 Hit Point per round.
Certain attack forms, typically fire and acid, deal damage to you normally; that sort of damage does not convert to nonlethal damage and so does not go away. A regenerating creature that has been rendered unconscious through nonlethal damage can be killed with a coup de grace. The attack cannot be of a type that automatically converts to nonlethal damage.
Creatures with regeneration can regrow lost portions of their bodies and can reattach severed limbs or body parts. Severed parts die if they are not reattached. Regeneration does not restore hit points lost from starvation, thirst, or suffocation. Attack forms that do not deal hit point damage ignore regeneration. You must have a Constitution score to have the regeneration ability. You can increase your rate of regeneration by 1 Hit Point per round for every regeneration talent taken. If the power is dispelled or discharged, it can be activated again as a standard action one full minute later.

* Protection From Energy (Sp): You gain the equivalent of a persistant Protection From Energy spell that you may use only on yourself, as a spellcaster of your Dark Paladin level, but you must choose which type it protects you against, and the power will only protect you against that form of energy thereafter. The energy type cannot be changed, though a new energy type can be chosen when a new talent is chosen. If it is dispelled or discharged, it can be activated again as a standard action one full minute later.

* Trapfinding: Dark Paladins (and only Dark Paladins) can use the Search skill to locate traps when the task has a Difficulty Class higher than 20.
Finding a nonmagical trap has a DC of at least 20, or higher if it is well hidden. Finding a magic trap has a DC of 25 + the level of the spell used to create it.
Dark Paladins (and only Dark Paladins) can use the Disable Device skill to disarm magic traps. A magic trap generally has a DC of 25 + the level of the spell used to create it.
A Dark Paladin who beats a trap’s DC by 10 or more with a Disable Device check can study a trap, figure out how it works, and bypass it (with her party) without disarming it.

* Track: You gain track as a bonus feat.

* Extra Turning: You gain extra turning as a bonus feat.

* Obscure Knowledge (Ex): A Dark Paladin can make a special Obscure knowledge check with a bonus equal to his Dark Paladin level + his Intelligence modifier to see whether he knows some relevant information about local notable people, legendary items, or noteworthy places. (If the bard has 5 or more ranks in Knowledge (history), he gains a +2 bonus on this check.)
A successful Obscure Knowledge check will not reveal the powers of a magic item but may give a hint as to its general function. A Dark Paladin may not take 10 or take 20 on this check; this sort of knowledge is essentially random.

DC        Type of Knowledge
10             Common, known by at least a substantial minority of the local population.
20             Uncommon but available, known by only a few people legends.
25             Obscure, known by few, hard to come by.
30             Extremely obscure, known by very few, possibly forgotten by most who once knew it, possibly known only by those who don’t understand the significance of the knowledge.

Regenerate Light Wounds
Conjuration (Healing)
Level: Dark Paladin 1
Components: V, S, DF
Casting Time: 1 minute
Range: Touch
Target: Creature touched
Duration: Special
Saving Throw: No (harmless)
Spell Resistance: Yes (harmless)

This spell remains dormant until the target is wounded. At that time, he heals back one point each round, starting immediately upon being wounded and again at that point in each following round, until the spell’s rolled limit is reached or the target is completely healed. Any points remaining when the target is completely healed are lost. In either case, the spell ends at that point.

Regenerate light wounds heals up to 1d8 points of damage +1 point per caster level (up to +5). If the creature to be affected is already wounded when the spell is cast, the regenerate light wounds spell immediately begins to function. No more than one regenerate wounds spell may be on a character at once. If a second is cast, the first is lost unless the first is of a higher category (see regenerate moderate wounds, et al).

Regenerate light wounds only lasts up to one hour per caster level. If it is not activated in that time, the spell is lost.

Regenerate Moderate Wounds
Conjuration (Healing)
Level: Dark Paladin 2
Components: V, S
Casting Time: 1 minute
Range: Touch
Target: Creature touched
Duration: Special
Saving Throw: No (harmless)
Spell Resistance: Yes (harmless)

This spell functions as regenerate light wounds, but heals 2d8 points of damage +1 point per caster level (up to +10). In addition if the target suffers a "bleeder" critical hit result while under the effects of this spell, it is lowered by one die.

Regenerate Serious Wounds
Conjuration (Healing)
Level: Dark Paladin 3
Components: V, S
Casting Time: 1 minute
Range: Touch
Target: Creature touched

Lethean Giantkiller Blade: A Lethean Giantkiller Blade is a longsword specifically designed for killing gigantic monsters, inflicting 1d8 damage against Medium-sized and smaller creatures, and 1d12 damage against Large-sized and larger creatures. Creatures proficient with a longsword are always proficient with a Lethean Giantkiller Blade. These weapons are always masterwork weapons, providing a +1 enhancement bonus on attack rolls.

Title: Welcome to Kramerland Part III
Post by: Sacrificial Lamb on October 22, 2010, 06:04:13 PM is the spell progression for the "Dark Paladin". It's derived from the spell progression of the 2e Priest, except with some zero level spells added in. So here we go...


Title: Welcome to Kramerland Part III
Post by: Sacrificial Lamb on October 22, 2010, 08:11:31 PM
All right. Just to sum up what I've written, Mutt's character, Glint, currently has these benefits:

* d12 hit dice
* proficiency with all simple and martial weapons
* proficiency with all armor and shields (but not tower shields)
* ability to cast spells as a divine spellcaster
* necromantic resistance (immune to energy draining, ability damage, and ability draining; +4 bonus vs necromancy spells and effects)
* a longsword that inflicts 1d8/1d12 dmg (1d12 dmg against large-sized creatures)
* armor that doesn't interfere with skill checks
* special abilities regarding secret and concealed doors
* infravision
* two attacks per round
* weapon specialization
* regeneration (this can potentially be dispelled; take note that Glint can still die if someone spends a full round engaging a coup de grace against him when he is unconscious; please don't bitch about it, Mutt...that's how regeneration works in 3.x)
* protection from fire (this can potentially be dispelled; this spell-like power is covered by the protection from energy talent)
* produce fire spell (it's on Glint's spell list, but it does not set people on fire in 3.x)
* immune to fear (see aura of courage class ability)
* trapfinding (as a Rogue/Thief)

The maps we scanned over at MeatLips's place all blurred out, and, for reasons that escape me. In any case, the PCs were leaving the town of Bresby, and were in full pursuit of the Leprechaun, Lucky Shortlegs Finnegan. The chase lead them to a bridge, where they found two sinewy Trolls smashing a larger-than-life wooden statue of...a Leprechaun. ;) Ok, here's the map of the bridge. Take note that this scan does not properly convey what it really looks like...


The PCs defeated the Trolls...

I'm leaving for the airport within the hour, and only have minutes to write this, so I'll make this quick.

Last session, the PCs were chasing down a Leprechaun that pilfered Glint's mask. They saw the little fellow spontaneously vanish while fleeing from a melee between two Orcs, and a sword-wielding man with glowing eyes...

Glint addressed the combatants, and persuaded them to stop attacking each other, when the gentleman with the glowing eyes suddenly turned tail, and chased after the Leprechaun. The Orcs saw their quarry running away, so they followed. So did the PCs...

The man ran around the corner of a crumbling stone wall, and the PCs then suddenly heard and saw this explosion of fire. They could smell brimstone and ash. The PCs peeked around the corner, and saw the man standing at ground zero of a circular patch of scorched earth. Surprisingly, he was completely unharmed.

The PCs could see a huge regiment of Orc soldiers in the distance, and a Half-Orc in dark robes hovering in the air behind them. The PCs ask the two Orcs who the identity is of the hovering fellow, and they tell them that his name is Thorgrin, a Half-Orc Wizard of considerable power, and the Orc soldiers are his retainers. They also inform them that the man is actually a demon of some sort, in Human form. At that point, the two Orcs decide to leave before things get too bloody. The Orcs attack.

I don't have time to write this up in detail, but I can only say that while some of the Orcs attack the demon dude, the rest of them swamp the PCs. Ord, Alicia, and Jocelyn get mulched, especially after Ord explodes in a ball of fire when he gets impaled by one of the Orc soldiers.

Even worse, the Half-Orc Wizard, Thorgrin polymorphs Glint into a frog! :(

The PCs retreat, carrying the bodies of their comrades with them. Glint is zapping the Wizard with lightning, as he can still somehow speak (and gesture), but he's in a dangerous position right now.

To cover their retreat, Dante transforms into a Rhino and engages the Orcs...! Dante almost dies..

Anyway, I'm leaving a bunch of stuff out, but those are the basics. There should be more to come in another week or two when I get back from my vacation...

Yea, like the three critical hits he got that resulted in him loosing his ear and driving his Charisma down to 7 and a -1 to listen checks.
