So far we have 8 players interested.
I am looking at the 2nd of December (Saturday night) to give people a chance to organise themselves and to help those in overseas time zones. (If this clashes with ppls plans let me know so we can work out a night and time)

Either myself and /or another DM will level you to lvl 5 and give you gear and weapons, This may be done beforehand but the character is not to be played besides on the night.

Rules are make 1 level 1 class player for the night.
NO Monks or Barbarians as that gives advantage in races.
NO bows for weapons (looking at you Vorty lol)
NO animal companions for the Last man standing melee.

Will work out the prizes soon.

Anyone else interested please add your name to the list.
Hopefully all goes well and we will continue having DM fun night events .

Cheers Gotrek.

I wasn't serious about Vorly being banned from bows... What about slings? Other throwing weapons? Did we do level 8 last event? I can't remember.

No Bows is probably a good thing, it was pretty cheesy...With no bows, I'm going to try bring a different cheesy build to the table. Dunno how well it'll work though...

Surprisingly we've got magic available to us in this one. Should open the door for some neat builds, grease/darkness/stink cloud can all ruin someones day! :D

Looking at starting 8pm Sydney time. But will be on earlier to skin and gear players beforehand.

Also build your character to level 40 as we will use them again in continuing events with players getting 5 levels per event.
Tonight level 5, next lvl 10 etc and upgraded gear as we go along.
No Custom gear though, only the standard NWN stuff.

Thank you Gotrek and Nav (not sure who else was DM on the night), I had such a good time as demonstrated by the cackling in the video recorded! Can't wait for the next event! Just in case people missed the explanation, I was using the svirfneblin racial summon (Earth Elemental), at level 5 it's upgraded to a level 8 summon with a BAB +16/+9 with 136hp (double everyone elses hp), DR, Power Attack? and Knockdown...I built a Favored Soul around that with 2 essences (want more feats!), 20 con for max hp and charisma items boosted me to 17 char. A different class would've been better since I think I missed at least 50% of Life Strike touches on myself and only landed two Spark strikes on other players.

The other build I was considering was the half-troll with racial regeneration. Regen on the Half-Troll is bugged though and exploiting that wouldn't have been in the spirit of the night in my opinion. For reference, the bug with the Half-Troll is the racial regen will stack on top of itself over time, increasing the regen the longer you are logged into the server. You need to log out with the wand to reset back to normal. I believe this is similar to how a shifter's shapes does a similar thing.

I have shared the video here (2Gb) but I will cut it up into smaller pieces if people want, to just the race and FFA.

Vorly lover of cheesy tactics...

All hail Vorly, undisputed holder of the dubious title of "Best Penguin in Edon"!

Was a good night with 6 penguins running loose. Though watching a certain young Bleagor kill a spectator for no reason was both amusing and horrifying to watch at the same time :lol:

Next one will be in the new year with all levelled to 10 and better gear.

If anyone else is still interested all I ask is that you make your character build early so we do not waste time on the night leveling and handing out gear.

Much better if everyone is ready to go straight away.

Once Vorly has cut the videos of the night down to size I will upload it to youtube.

Gotrek :D

Haha! Good to watch a replay of the race. Where the hell did the polar bear come from?! Good to see we are retaining the status quo of Vorly winning and me coming last!
