Progress: The Party So Far

Just a quick heads up because some people were wondering earlier what the party was looking like. I’m doing this from memory so if you’ve changed the details since then don’t hesitate to point it out.

JPH is playing a Halfling Rogue

A Rogue (PHB1) is a Striker meaning a focus on hit and run tactics with sneak attack damage

Krellen is playing a human Artificer

Artificers (Eberron) are Leaders who focus on imbuing items with arcane magic to buff allies

Desgardes is playing a Watersoul Genasi Warden

Wardens (PHB2) are primal defenders who draw on the power of nature bolster their abilities while hindering their foes

Jarenth is playing a Dragonborn Cleric of Bahamut

Clerics are divineĀ  leaders with inexplicable martial prowess as well as healing capabilities

If anyone else has given me their character breakdown then I’ve just forgotten about it and you should remind me in the comments.

Of the six people who posted in the sign ups thread (seven if the timing works out) that’s what I’ve got so far. There’s no particular rush, I’m willing to get going whenever you are, and until then I’ll keep posting worldbuilding. If anyone has any particular requests that are important to their character concept, again, that’s what the comments are for.

Future topic possibilities:

  • Zero Gravity fighting – you continue moving every turn unless stopped
  • Circumventing the vacuum – the difficulties of cosmic existence and the magic used to get around them
  • Starships – So they’re like ships, but not for water?
  • Races and their homeworlds – how did they all get here and what are they doing?
  • Factions and figures – who are the big names in Arcanauts?
  • Science fantasy – exactly how much science do people understand?
  • New races – It’s a galaxy teeming with life after all?
  • Technology – what do people have and what does it do?
  • Power sources – So psionics aren’t the background radiation from someone opening a door in reality?

I’ve got a tonne of ideas, and there’s always going to be more stuff to discover in the game itself. These posts are just a brief overview of common knowledge with a few helpings of rumours and theories thrown in.

    Wait, krellen’s character has no race?

    I’m thinking Psion, which has a different power source than anyone else and is a controller, which we don’t have. Maybe Eladrin, but I haven’t decided for sure.

    Btw, can we make Shardmind characters? Just wondering because of their unique position in the setting…

      That would be pretty awesome.

      Yes you can absolutely make shardminds. You can make anything. You would decide how involved they are with Wyrmweb, but just being a shardmind should be useful on the station. Firstly because Shardminds (I’ve decided) have an intuitive understanding of space and spatial manipulation so you’d be able to navigate Wyrmweb without the Unconscious’ help and Secondly because other shardminds are liable to trust their own kind a bit more, so you might be able to get away with a bit more. Thirdly nobody is going to attack a Shardmind on Wyrmweb unless they really think they can get away with it. Because a) Dragons, b) other Shardminds.

      The actual Wyrmweb project was a shardmind initiative, but it was created by engineers and mages in secret – not the entire race. so chances are you wouldn’t be involved in the founding, if only because you start at level 1. You may know them or have some connection or inside knowledge but it’s not guaranteed.

    I think I’m really leaning towards high-DPS Dwarf fighter…
