Level Gains

Kadarin- 4th mage (sorcerer w/Mouse), 2 additional HP's, 2 additional spells (1 1st, 1 2nd), better saves i think.
Adan- 3rd (fighter), 8 additional HP's, slightly better hit roll, and maybe better saves, not sure.

Triumph of the Dungeon Master!

Ah, how I have come to love that sense of accomplishment and victory that I get when I pull the wool over the eyes of a clever player character. What DM Triumphs have you had?

Some of mine:
1. Finally killing an incredibly powerful, lucky, annoying player's character.
2. Finally achieving a TPK (Total Party Kill)
3. Finally achieving a TPK using only traps
4. Finally working out how to make it so that d**n wizard doesn't steal the spotlight all the d**n time.

A question on the side:
> Do first edition elves sleep, or do they just meditate for an hour or two, like their 3rd Ed counterparts?
> Any other racial stuff of note due to being elven and felid?
> What level am I anyway? :D

2. sure! 1. infravision (so i just realized that Adan's firebox is just pissin' you off, not helping in darkness haha), 2. +2 on all saves vs charm, suggest, mental stuff, 3. +1 with any sword and bow (hit and dam), and some other elvy stuff I'll look up anon.

The thought of knights of the Dew-Marked Rose marching to battle amuses me abundantly; some of those guys took one level of fighter, then dual-classed to Bard.

Not in first ed, they didn't. :p

Quote
To become a bard, a human or half-elf had to begin with very high ability scores: Strength 15+, Wisdom 15+, Dexterity 15+ and Charisma 15+, Intelligence 12+ and Constitution 10+. These daunting requirements made bards one of the rarest character classes. Bards began the game as Fighters, and after achieving 5th level (but before reaching 8th level), they had to dual-class as a thief, and after reaching 5th level as a thief (but before reaching 9th level), they had to dual-class again to Druid. Once becoming a druid, the character then progressed as a Bard.

Oh. Oh. I am so going to lose my geek license. Never realized a Bard was a prestige class in 1st Ed. It's an use-impaired base class in 2nd and 3rd, after all.

Err - Have my sheet showing level 3, 25 HP, and an AC of 2. 

Hm. Think I see where the difference came from, under old sk00l r00ls, I have no modifiers, under new sk00l r00ls, i have a modifier of +2 on con and str. (to hit / dam) DM call, but I'd been running under the bonus beforehand.

4. Scroll of Protection from Demodands 10’ radius

I guess Adan should get the Ioun, +2 con does nothing for me. Ring of Free Action means I get more action, which is good. Thus, it would add to my happiness score.

Val, I thought we figured that the dagger alone to the short sword was a better deal for the fight? Still your choice, though.

Okay, with the Demodand's death, lets pause to update characters.

Killed 1 banshee (defeated with weirdness), 4 perytons, 8th level wizard, Demodand, farastu

Found Denhane's Stash (already detailed), and 8th level wizard's stuff.
                    1 scroll w/5 spells. Dimension Door x2, Locate Object x2, Plant Growth
                    Shrunken Spellbook (functional but shrunk to 1/12th size)
                    Thick, glass, Jar of ooze (instant demodand, just add water?)
                    Scroll of something (language not understood by anyone present)

Every one gets to level UP!

Well, I do get some 6 HP, bringing me up to 32; other than that, I have no idea about my level progression. I guess I do get another spell slot; what other boons Rose Knights get we have not determined.
