Let me know when you want to play again. I can make replacement/starting characters whenever anybody wants to stop by.
Well, let's introduce our dramatis personae, shall we? Meet Vlad Draculastein, the cowardly dampyr, Greed, a tough as nails homanculus, Arongoth of Hogendaus the sinister cleric, and Rael the scrappy thief. Rounding out the party as dumb muscle and arrow catchers are a pair of reanimated rat creatures from last session. For Arongoth, Animate Dead was a hammer, and every enemy that fell in battle was a coffin nail.
My general practice for Labyrinth Lord convention games is to start characters off with 200001 EXP, which puts 'em mostly at around Lvl 5, with certain exceptions. My initial crew, as can be seen above, was an even split between two of my custom classes, and two of the standard classes, although both of the regular type characters are gonna become a LOT more interesting as play proceeds. Heh heh heh.
The player playing the extremely short lived Kerowack the Thief couldn't make it on the night of the first game, but after hearing us all chattering about it decided to join in. I was afraid he was gonna quit because his character died pretty much one room after he joined the party. They found him trapped in a coffin after being buried alive by some treacherous companions, and they put him right back there after he failed his Poison save. Thankfully, the player returned a couple sessions later as we shall see...
