So, for those of us who have signed up (and in an attempt to draw in a few more people hopefully).
What class/race are you planning on playing?
A balanced party is key.
I've tended towards fighters before, but I'm keen to try playing as a rogue, given that now I can focus on controlling my own character, rather than a whole party.

I quite fancied the 'Rogue' class too, given my tendency to opt for the Fighter class during my D&D days. I rather like the idea of playing as a half-elven bard. Kind of like the minstrel at the end of Blackadder II, only with pointier ears. And a Swiss Army Lute.

I always enjoyed the Thieves' Guild plotlines in Raymond Feist's books, and some sneak thief RPG skullduggery has long since appealed too.


I shall ruminate on the 'class' a tad longer, but I'm fairly settled on half-elf. I'm all but decided on a character name, too: Alfie Helferleather, the Half-Elf Filthy Pilferer.

Too much?

Oh, okay.

Sounds perfick Ade. smile.gif
I'd tend more towards the "sneaky sneaky, stabby stabby, looty looty" style of rogue.
I'm tempted to call my character Sir Schmoopy of Awesometown in a reference that no one will get. Maybe not.

Well, that was the direction I was initially thinking*, but if that's what you're aiming for I shall steer away - wouldn't want to upset the balance. smile.gif

* eta: I do rather like the sound of the 'Swashbuckler' sub-class option. In fact, as a half-elven character, I also have the advantage of playing a combo-class: I'm thinking Fighter/Mage/Thief

Hmmmm....

You're right. I don't get it. But I like the name 'Schmoopy'. Even if it is a bit cute and cuddly for a stabby-looty sneak thief. But maybe that's the intention, eh? Misdirection.

Probably a ranger. Maybe dual-specced into something castery if I take the archer subclass, as it's always handy to have a few spells to fling at things when you inevitably run out of arrows mid way through a fight.

I might go with a magic based class.
Just to be indecisive.

After playing the first game at the conference I've decided to roll with a Sorcerer. That sleep spell is pretty damn handy.

Quite like the idea of being a Ranger too, but am sorely tempted to be a whopping great big wizard.

If anyone doesn't have this yet and is interested, it's only $5 in the sale over at www.gog.com

And so is the single-player, but magnificent Planescape: Torment.

Excellent.
That works out at only 3.23.
Well worth it.

Any thoughts on when to start?
I rather like the idea of some one who hasn't played before taking the main role and making the decisions, with the rest of us pretty much acting as NPC's, able to offer opinions but not make the choices, or reveal spoilers.
