Re: The Elf

Hey I forgot to ask how do you figure out HP at level 1? And I assume which ever class levels up simply rolls what new HD it receives?

Re: The Assassin

Yes that is indeed what I meant. I will make that change. I'm glad you approve. That means a lot. Thanks for the exchange of ideas. I've included the final version. Cheers!

Re: The Assassin

Here's an updated version that takes into account the things you mentioned along with the poison concept from the original. Let me know what you think.

Re: The Assassin

Thanks again for the back and forth. If you get a chance to check out the original from Fen Orc then do so. He also adds Blade Venom which is different from Poison. In his version the Assassin gets to roll a d6 at the beginning of an adventure to see how many vials of Blade Venom he starts with inst...

Re: The Assassin

Okay, I guess the thought was the Poison would limit how many save vs. death chances you would have since you only start out with a certain number of vials. Removing that would essentially allow the Assassin to instant kill whenever though the limit of the Assassin's level+1 does keep that under con...

Re: The Assassin

Interesting. So what your saying is simply remove the whole poison thing and let the OUT OF COMBAT use of Assassinating be open ended like it already is? So remove the poison section and just have... Out of combat Assassins can carry out assassination plots to murder their targets. The player needs ...

Re: The Assassin

Yea I've seen that one and it's not bad but I really like the singular mechanic of thievery and would rather see something along the same lines. Here's a simplified version of an Assassin created by someone else named Fen Orc in his book White Box: Unearthed Trove. I really liked what he did but I s...

The Assassin

I've really been wanting to add an Assassin class for FMAG that is unique and has its own niche without stepping on the toes of the thief. So I'm looking for suggestions. I've come across a few ideas that are pretty good from various authors but nothing that has really hit the nail on the head in my...

Re: Converting monsters from AD&D and BX

Very true. I'm not going to water down this monster. I'll let the party figure it out...lol. What's funny though is I played a thief in this adventure and a 15HD monster in BX only had a THACO of 9 or +10 to hit. So it was actually easier to fight in BX.

Re: Converting monsters from AD&D and BX

Good idea. Yea I've never fought too many 15HD monsters either...lol. What about the damage? With its AD&D stats it has 2 attacks both doing 3d6.
