  I had been looking through my book shelf and I felt that it might be good to give it a go again.

  When ever you guys are. I have reread the first two parts of the adventure. I don't expect everything to go exactly like the book. So if you want to deviate, that is fine with me.

Hi, everyone!

Deviating is fine with me--I don't think I've played a named character in the setting before, and I'm not going to say how long it's been since I read any of the books.

I love the frying pan idea ... reminds me of some of my old characters whose specialty was make-shift weapons.

I had one character who was an elf (Basic D&D, back when elf was not just a race) who was joining an already-in-progress game centered around going into dangerous lairs to retrieve the MacGuffin pieces (Tears of something, which were gemstones, but my memory is foggy because that's like 20 years ago). To introduce my character, the DM decided to put her into a jail cell in the structure the party was currently in. For reasons I'll never understand (or maybe I don't want to think about why), the cell featured a stone table suspended by very long chains in the middle of the room, and wouldn't you know, if she got on top of the table after getting it started in motion, it would impact the door of the cell. Well, I have never been very good at helpless damsel-in-distress, so she used the convenient battering ram to knock the window of the cell door loose. At the time, she was supposed to be in clothes and had managed to hide a dagger on her. Well, the door also had a curtain over it (hallway side, outside the cell). So she managed to slide through the 12x12 window and used her dagger to cut some of the drape off, dislodged the curtain rod on one end and retrieved some of the iron curtain rings. Twisting the drape (like you might do with a towel in a locker room ... not that I know a thing about that 0:-)...), using some curtain rings for weight, she set off with a few loose curtain rings just in case. Well, by this time the party was in a fight with an invisible octopus like thing suspended from the ceiling (which would briefly be visible when hit), and so if the party had entered from the south, she was coming from the west. Wanting to be helpful to these not-her-captors folk, she decided to join in the fight against the invisible octopus thing and threw a curtain ring at it, whereupon I promptly rolled a 1.

  I had a character I played on here a few years ago, back when rp was plentiful, and 2nd was the thing. We were supposed to be climbing the tower of a mage, and were attacked by fire drakes. I was absolutely certain that I would be alright, I had a excellent climb, and I was good with acrobatics, so I was heading up the tower to check for traps on the one door we could find.

Was attacked, it did 1 pt of damage to me.Forcing me to make a climb roll. I rolled a 00 for my 98 Climb roll, and managed to fall and hit two other ledges, causing them to crumble under me. I took 3 pts from that.

The domino effect happened, and our party Paladin, fell all the way down. Our mage managed to save himself with a spell, or cleric had ring of feather falling, and halfling clung to the door and suffered no damage.

We all had to retreat into a area of the caravan to heal.

I haven't gotten into high jinx in a long while. Since I am usually the one keeping my group from lunacy. I've seen some stuff though. -lol-

Yeah, I don't know why the botched rolls always seem to make the best stories. I mean, who would think that throwing a curtain ring that ends up hitting the party's leader (who IC did not know my character from all the other critters in the dungeon) would make a great character intro. Turned out, the Drape of Thwappage™ was a very successful weapon, despite being ruled a make-shift flail with really slow weapon speed and flail-1 damage.

So successful that a subsequent character with a DM who knew the story decided that my character intro would be much the same (prisoner on a pirate ship currently in a high-seas combat with the party's ship) and my character broke free with the Bedsheet of Thwappage™ just as the ship-to-ship combat ended.

But on a more serious note--I see some things (like leather armor appears to be worn) and then equipment as "player's choice" ... so do I have armor/weapons and then add some general equipment like a backpack, frying pans, bedsheets and drapes...?

That you can have that to purchase extra things you need or what you currently have on you. If we follow the open scenario, I think Tika works at the Inn, so I am sure there is lots of stuff to be grabbed in there ?
