This saturday I'm part of ConstanCon 2011, at GMT 19:00 and PST 11:00 I will run a short game of DnD 3.5.
For those who are not familiar with 3.5:
Pick a class, a race and roll abilities (4d6 drop lowest). We will smooth it out together.
For those who know the 3.5 system:
Create a level 2 character, roll 4d6 drop lowest for abilities, with equipment worth 300 gp.
Use these condensed skills instead of the normal ones:
Stealth (Dex) = hide + move silently
Perception (Wis) = listen + spot + search
Disable Device (Int) = disable device + open lock
Diplomacy (Cha) = diplomacy + gather information
Acrobatics (Dex) = Balance + Tumble
Linguistics (Int) = decipher script + forgery + (1 speak language per 2 ranks)
Characters are presumed to be already a group and are on the road from point A to point B, on the road Adventure happens. The adventure will at least feature talking skulls, heartbroken wizards and halucinogenic mushrooms.
The game will take around 2 hours. I can be contacted via bennetakkerman (at) hotmail (dot) com.
