    Well, I figured... If I'm finally going to play this game, I might as well do a LP of it.
    [​IMG]

    I don't think anything needs to be said about this game. However, I have to inform you some facts about this LP:
    This will be a blind LP. I have never played PoR before.
    This is my first LP. Please tell me if I fucked up anything.
    I will use first-roll characters. No popamole stuff like rerolling or stat editing.

    First of all, however, we will have to create a party consists of 6 characters. Naturally, this being a LP, I will let my readers participate in the character creation. If you are even more of a newfag than me, here's the basics of the character creation system in this game:

    Race
    Human: Humans have a lot of potential - they can be any of the four classes and don't have a level cap (I don't know what level will we be able to advance to in PoR, but the manual only listed spells up to the third level so I guess it won't be terribly high). They can't multiclass. Note that dual-classing is NOT possible in PoR!
    Elf: Elves can be fighters, mages (actually they were called magic-users but I will be calling them mages because it's shorter and sounds less stupid) or thieves. Their multiclass options include F/M, F/T, M/T and F/M/T. They also have a better chance of finding hidden objects. They have infravision.
    Dwarf: Dwarves can be fighters or thieves. Their only multiclass option is F/T. They have innate magic resistance as well as infravision.
    Half-Elf: Half-Elves can be any of the four classes. Their multiclass options include F/M, F/T, F/C, M/T, M/C, F/M/T and F/M/C.
    Gnome: Gnomes are like Dwarves but inferior in every way. Dunno why SSI even bothered to include them.
    Halfling: Halflings are weaker but more agile version of Dwarves. They also have innate magic resistance.

    Class
    Fighter: Typical fighters. Can use any kind of armor or weapon.
    Mage: Typical mages. Can cast arcane spells.
    Cleric: Typical clerics. Can cast divine spells and wear any kind of armor. Can't use sharp weapons.
    Thief: Typical thieves. Can wear light armor and use light weapons. Can backstab.

    Gender
    You can be a man or a tranny. Trannies have a lower strength cap and don't have any advantage that I'm aware of.

    So! You know the drills, Codexian - pick a race, gender, class, alignment and name. The game will start when we have six people.

    Discuss!!

    Nice. But be sure to read the manual first! And don't get angry at the shopping and casting interface, they can drive you crazy in this game.

    I'd like to be Elwro, the mighty and backstabbin' Dwarven Fighter / Thief. Chaotic Neutral. FeMale of course.

    Um... You see, good clerics can smite undeads while evil clerics can rebuke them. Neutral clerics can do neither, which means they are sub-par. Sorry bro, I can't include a neutral cleric in our party because that would be against mondblut's teaching.
    Alignment?

    Late to the party. :sad:

    Looking forward to the inevitable rape though. :smug:

    Should I for some reason or the other make it into the party however, make me this char:

    Magnus
    Dwarf
    Cleric (of Clangeddin Silverbeard, they should be proficient in battleaxes, depending on the rules used)
    Male
    Neutral Good

    True. For some reason though, I just assumed Monstrous Bat himself would roll the sixth character. M:

    I'm just glad I chose a character that can wear plate armour and gets a boost to con. It's going to be ugly. :smug:

    Azira, dwarves can't be clerics. You'll have to pick another class.

    Cool! Note also that you can match a male face with a female torso and vice versa. Just sayin'.

    Yeah. Right now there's really no one to deal any melee damage. But still, if you get through the first dungeon with this party, you'd deserve a strong :bro: for effort.
