Something like that could work if our characters knew each other before this meeting. James could be someone Garl had an adventure with in the recent past. Perhaps James wanted to get to know Garl better after the adventure had finished but Garl simply left as he had become accustomed to do, no longer ever expecting anyone to want to expend the time and energy for his friendship. Real angsty stuff.

Perhaps they could have worked together on a Research Expedition (standard Dungeon Crawl), and even made a minor discovery together (adding a new entry to the Wayfinders Guide). James would have been interested to uncover Garl's history, and disappointed to find he had left in the gloom of night.

Already building connections between characters? God, I love that. You two are definitely in.

My biggest concern about the party in general is still healing, though.

Sounds good! Shall we create a meeting scene?

I have some healing; I took Cure Wounds and Goodberry for my spells, and I have a healing potion from my NPSG campaign. Not much, but it's something. Perhaps another partial healer?

Achemenon's primary motivator is Recognition: To gain approval, social status, or fame so as to rise above being thought of as a pariah. He feels ashamed and distrustful. Achemenon is a pragmatic fellow.

Sometimes Achemenon needs to come into town for supplies. He looks for a little kindness at those times but rarely receives any.

In regards to the healing issue, Wizards are not great at that, but I can think of two ways that James could re-spec to be at least a partial healer:
1) We go Gestalt, and James' 2nd Class is Artificer (Alchemist). This would give him a bunch of Healing Abilities, not as much as a dedicated Cleric, but it would hopefully be enough.
2) James' Race changes to Halfling with the Mark of Healing. This would add a whole bunch of Healing spells to his Spell list. Mechanically, this would change him a fair bit.

Arabella would be adventuring for the learning experience of it. Learning songs and dances from far off places.

If we go gestalt, bards do get a tiny bit of healing as well.

@Candide3693 - We can absolutely work out a meeting scene. PM me with your ideas?

@Sheila - Yes Druids can ably fill that role, but nobody has offered to play one yet.

@ChiefDisbelief
  • The Raven Queen is not in this setting- see post #15 for list of deities.
  • Armor and Weapons on sheet- remove lbs, use only numbers. Check caried or worn. This will give correct encumbrance.

@VonKlaussen
  • Is the demigod Relani still alive and leading the Relani Kingdom?

@James
  • Gestalt Option- Wizard (Order of Scribes)/Cleric (Domain: Knowledge) though Artificer (Alchemist) is a good choice.

If no one else is interested... we have a Ranger, a Rogue, two Warlocks and a Wizard.

To alleviate the healing problem:
  • If no gestalt... maybe one of the warlocks changes the Patron to Celestial or they switch altogether to cleric or druid.
  • If gestalt... rogue(Phantom)/cleric(Death), wizard(Scribe)/artificer(Alchemist), wizard(Scribe)/cleric(Knowledge), ranger(Gloom Stalker/druid(Circle of the land, Underdark), warlock(Hexblade)/cleric(War) or just settle for the warlock(Genie)/bard(Glamour) as our only healing. Of course the Ranger could gestalt to Ranger/Rogue in which case I'd be free to gestalt a Cleric(Nature)/Druid(Circle of the Moon).

Alternately, if we do gestalt, what about changing Garl to a ranger/cleric (Life)? Given the backstory I created for him for his NPSG, making him a gestalt cleric/ranger who focused on the life domain would make sense.
