Just to add my thanks for a great day.

Thanks to Bruno and the rest of Team Alfar for putting up with me fumbling my way through as an Alfar High wizard, considering that it was only the second time I'd played a wizard and I'd only had since Thursday evening to learn a couple of verbals.

It was great fun to blow through nearly 70 mana in less than an hour though!

Overall I enjoyed the intensity of the adventures - it reminded me of when we first started playing and there were three adventures per day. I wonder if the Caves team would consider doing that again - I used to quite like monstering a bit and playing a bit on the same day.

Cheers Julian, that looks like good advice there. Realistically, I would always be wearing armour while playing this character, it's just that it would be a mishmash.

Perhaps my original post would have been better worded as something like "Any armour worn counts as mastercrafted plate/chain when used with a relevant plate/chain armour card" or something.

OK it seems you are prepared to accept
- not multiracing
- no guilds
- no psionics
- half ogre intelligence
which between them are quite strong restrictions.

I am guessing that you won't be playing a huge amount so are probably want the benefits fairly quickly.
Also not wearing metal armour hurts a warrior most early on.

I would definitely buy brute if you are a thick human warrior. +1 PAC, 6/2 life & a grade of strength is a bargain for 50pts.

Couple of questions - what alignment are you & had you considered being a barbarian warrior ?
Also - do you have a shield ? (using a shield is a great way to make up for weak AC / damage reductions without spending points)

With my reffing hat on here, it is perhaps worth mentioning that if I'm statting a max 250 dungeon, I would expect a lead warrior (the guy at the front who does nothing but fight) to be in AC 8, AC 10 for a max 500 and AC 11 or 12 by 1000pts. Life & AC are the first things a warrior needs.

I play about every 2 months. The character is 8th plus about 100 points. I wanted to lose the phys. rep. restriction so I could still be in plate/chain and still add innate PAC/DAC while also being able to get down the tunnel/over walls etc. He is very definitely the lead warrior type. Apart from fighting, pretty much all he does is stumble through traps or look confused. the main fun is roleplaying him as he is very easily led by other party members

He is True Neutral. He uses a shield occasionally but prefers two swords. I don't know much about Barbarian warriors but that's a possibility (his name is Barbrian as it happens).

Really, I thought I was asking for a fairly feeble benefiit (power/system-wise) which wouldn't affect anything as I would still make an effort on costume.

I tried on a 18 gauge steel breast and backplate the other day was really surprised how light it was basically as light as aluminium chain. Now I just need to find the £100 it costs tongue.gif

Jez.


Yeah, that's part of the problem I have. Finding the cash/convincing the missus to let me spend the cash. The other part of the problem is that EVERY SINGLE DAMN ADVENTURE seems to go down that bloody tunnel! A chainmail coif is great for not banging your head too much but my plate mail torso is a bugger for bending over in to fit down the tunnel in the first place.

Fair enough, I'll have a proper trawl through the post 8th tables and see what I can work out. The Old Man of War sounds interesting but I do want to be able to wear chain or plate sometimes, I basically wanted to be able to wear varying mish-mashes of armour and costume without worrying about the armour class. either way it will have to be without relying on guild benefits as the character in question is a bit too stupid to be able to remember it if he joins a guild.

Cheers all.

Yaarr. 'Twas a good adventure and I'm glad I managed not to lose any more body parts.

There's a couple of reasons for this:

1. I want a bit more freedom with costume
2. I now have a kid and a missus who has given up work so I can't afford new armour!

I'd call him an Archetypal Warrior. He's human and a pure warrior.

The benefits would be something like:

The ability to wear any handbook armour (i.e. non-magical/spiritual etc.) without the need for a phys. rep.
Strength
Immune to fear while engaged in combat


The restrictions I was thinking of would be along the lines of:

May never multi-class outside the warrior bracket
May never willingly multi-race
Must always be dressed to look like a warrior and may therefore never benefit from any disguise which tries to hide his class.

Other possible restrictions:

Has half ogre intelligence
May never acquire psionic abilities


What do people think? I've never done a points app before so any help would be appreciated.
