Done - I posted the rules in the Cast thread (hidden in the spoiler button). Note, I've changed a few things to reflect what we've gone over in this OOC chat. Namely, everyone gets at least a 20 point buy for ability scores. But, if you try to roll first, then revert to the point buy, you lose your starting hero points like Chrystrom did. If you simply opt for the 20 point buy without attempting to roll first, then you get to keep your hero points.

Also, I've updated the HP roll method. As usual, you get max hp for your first level. Plus, you get to reroll any 1s, 2s or 3s. You're probably going to need it...

Though these things are suppose to be ingested poisons for the Lycan so not sure the cedar wood would work that way at all.

(The book doesn't say it but I'm guessing that these items also help deter the Lycan from coming close...a natural revulsion from whatever plant they have the reaction to...at least that is how I'd play it. It might not hurt them...it might not be sure fire to keep them away but they will definately be uncomfortable and maybe, with a failed will save perhaps, keep them back a certain distance or cause them to flee).

Another option is: Actaea pachypoda (also known as doll's eyes or white baneberry(I'd go with this name for it)). All parts are poisonous, but especially the berries, the consumption of which has a sedative effect on cardiac muscle tissue and can cause cardiac arrest. - This one mostly because the picture of the berries looks kind of creepy and Ravenloftish.
Yeah, my intent is to have the effect be similar to garlic or holy symbols for a vamp. It can be overcome, but will take a Will save to do so.

Also, I like both items. So, I'm thinking both cedar and that terrifyingly ugly plant (white baneberry) will work against were-ferrets, with the latter being the more potent of the two.

Ok roger, Cedar wood and White Baneberry for the Chemical Bane and I like using them like garlic or a holy symbol. Adds a fun new element.

EDIT: Ok topic of discussion for us players: DM says we all don't need to know each other, but he'd perfer if two of us at least did. Any ideas on which two of us should already have some history together?

Those stats were...sad. 11, 14, 12, 7, 14, 13. I'm reverting to the 20 point buy. No hero points for me, I guess.

Question: How much would it cost for Nikola to own an old, haunted-looking mansion on a cliff with a fully-stocked alchemical laboratory in the basement?

Depends on a number of things. Do you happen to have the Stronghold Builders Guidebook? If so, feel free to use it to put your mansion together (and we can sort out a location later).

If not, I can take a stab at it. I'll just need to get some more info from you, so we'll probably need to take it to PM.

As a ballpark figure, you're probably looking at a minimum of 10k gold. And that's if you want to focus almost entirely on the lab and let everything else fall to the wayside.

A quick point of clarification -

If you're rerolling your hit points, you can continue to reroll until you get something better than a 1, 2 or 3. In other words, if you roll a 2, then you reroll and get a 3, reroll again until it's 4+

So I think what Ehlana and I are thinking, is that her character Kaia met up with my character Nik a little while ago in Barovia, parted ways, then met up again shortly before they ended up in the starting region.

Btw, cool, thanks! on the HP

Ok that sounds good to me. I guess the other two of us are then complete stangers and some how through DM magic we are all linked up like best friends to risk our lives together

So do we have a target date for getting our sheets/backgrounds done and having a game thread started?

Toward the end of this week I am going on one of my usual government sponsored trips. I shouldn't be as busy on this one as my last so I should have time to post but the internet situation is always a bit dicey at my destination.

I'm hoping we can get things started by mid-week.

How long will you be out of town?
