Sorry for your loss, FJ. This year has been sucky for that sort of thing.

Condolences for your loss FJ.

Must glanced over that. Dang, deserve a forehead slap.
Vlad: 53/53 HP remaining;
Orekk: 27/56 HP remaining; Longstrider (1627r);
Hellsing: 45/50 HP remaining;
Morrolan: 47/56 HP remaining; 3 Wisdom Dmg;
Araella: 17/34 HP remaining; Mage Armor (32593r);

Orekk will use some of his spells and wand of lesser vigor to bring folk up to full health.

Oh, it's very cool to see the big map! Nice to have a reminder of how much distance we've covered.

I'll let Morrolan post first.

Just you guys all know, I am perfectly happy letting all of the other characters take the exploring lead. I don't have much to add in that department. I'm glad you guys have a great system worked out! :o

Okay, this is somewhat off-topic, but then again, I think this is probably the most appropriate place to have this conversation, so here goes.

I was thinking about 3.5 the other day, and how it's endured over the years. 4E was fundamentally flawed and too different to really make a splash. 5E has been well-received, but isn't quite as popular as 3.5 was in its heyday, maybe because of the lack of a full SRD. Of course, there's Pathfinder, which is essentially 3.75, and has the full SRD as well. It seems to me that 3.5 and Pathfinder have been fairly equal in popularity for some time now, but slowly Pathfinder is gaining ground.

It made me wonder if this game, and the other 3.5 game here on this site, will be the last 3.5 games I play. And that made me think of what makes 3.5 unique - some of the awesome class combos and special feats that really elevate a build in a way that I think Pathfinder doesn't fully achieve. I'm talking about the Swift Hunters and the Mystic Theurges and the crazy things you can do with Karmic Strike. The builds that some people call overpowered - which is a criticism that has merit - but are also just really fun to play.

It makes me think of my favorite builds, like the Swift Hunter, which I'm playing now, and like a spear-using fighter I had who had Short Haft and Karmic Strike and all the other little feats that dovetail into being a murder machine. I had a Rogue crossbow user that could sneak attack with the crossbow up to 45'. I had an elven Champion of Corellon who used a courtblade and was so overpowered he managed to kill the BBEG with one strike in the first round, and my DM forbade me to play him after that, and made me roll up a new character.

But I'm also thinking of the smaller things, classes and races I never got to try. For a long time I was obsessed with the Marshal class from the old 3.0 Miniatures Handbook, and dearly wanted to play one, but alas, I never got the chance. I think it would have been fun, and right up my alley. But even if I find another 3.5 game someday, the chances that the Marshal class would be allowed would be slim.

So anyway, how about you guys? Do you have some nostalgia for past builds? Favorite class combos? Things you wanted to play but didn't get the chance to?

This is probably as good as place as any to talk about this. This is the longest running game that is still active on the site and the first PbP a few of us have played. The Adventurer’s Guild is not far behind, but will always be a few months younger.

The only characters I have left playing 3.5ed are those on my bucket list. They are ones that cannot be converted very well to Pathfinder.
