Re: The gladiators! OOC Apply here for joining the fighting

Didn't really consider wizards and their spellbooks, but in all fairness to all the classes I'll allow you to have a spellbook and simple material components for all spellcasting classes and their focus.

While the chainmail bikini was in jest, the armor and clothes you get will at most be something skimpy to barely cover you. More free skin allows for more entertaining bloodspray. So when armor is available it will likely be light armor and around AC 12.

Down time will vary and you won't always know how many battles have been scheduled for you. As minimum you'll get a short rest between each battle and have a chance to spend HD to heal (remember that you only get half back from a long rest, not that it matters at level 1).

I'm also going to make a house rule regarding gaining proficiencies. If you've used a weapon/armor in 5 battles, you get half proficiency earning you half the proficiency bonus and after 10 battles you'll get full proficiency.

Does this mean I'm on my way to 'corpse flail' proficiency?

Name: Karn
Race: Dragonborn
Color: Red (Fire breath 15 foot cone. 50% fire damage resistance)
Background: Gladiator (PHB says this gets me a special weapon. Do I get to keep it?)
Class: Barbarian

STR: 20 (+5)
DEX: 17 (+3)
CON: 16 (+3)
INT: 10 (0)
WIS: 13 (+1)
CHA: 14 (+2)

HP: 15
AC: 16 (Unarmored)
Speed: 30

Skill proficiencies: Acrobatics and Performance (Gladiator). Intimidation and Perception (Barbarian).
Saving throws: STR, CON
Features: Rage (2/day. Gives advantage on strength checks, +2 melee damage, 50% resistance to bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing damage. Lasts 1 minute.), Unarmored Defense (AC = 10 + DEX + CON).

Languages: Common, Draconic.

Fire breath: 15 foot cone. 2d6 damage. Save vs DEX DC 8+prof+CON= 13.

Is that everything? You said we have to earn armor and weapon proficiencies?

Also, I presume melee attacks count as strength checks for the purposes of Rage?

There are three types of d20 rolls. Attacks, ability checks and saving throws. Rage only gives advantage on strength ability checks and saving throws, not attacks.

If anything I think you lack a few spells on that list but seems fine for the first and second level spells except it is missing some warlock exclusive spells

So since I'm proficient in all simple and martial weapons and all armor, how granular will my gaining proficiency in other weapons be?

Where on the spectrum of 'dead dog' to 'improvised weapon' does my one use of Not-Snuffles land me?

Completely off-topic, but Mort; have you seen Guardians of the Galaxy 2? Because Bort's comment about "chafing" reminded me of something Drax says in the film :lol:

Wears, I stole your first post in this thread and used it copy in the details from everyones character. To answer your question, you don't get a weapon since you own nothing, but I'm looking at some "exotic" weapons that might be offered in the future and once I figure out what to do about that I'll let you get 1 exotic weapon proficiency you can take because of your background.

Spider you are 1/10th of the way to get a medium sized corpse batter proficiency. For my sake and in fairness to all, I've decided to make it equal to all and they have to use the weapon from start to finish and use it for its intended purpose at least twice during the battle against an opponent (looking at you spellcasters!)

Oh good. I was kind of hoping to have an organized place for character sheets. Now I just have to remember who is playing whom. But good use of my useless post.

Not sure if you wanted viskek's stats for that, but they're right below the summary post if you do.

What spreadsheet are we talking about?

Oh, that one. nvm.

Wears, Can you change my background to "Haunted One".

Modified my background too, switching Entertainer with Far Traveller (I didn't realise there were other options than the base ones).

Skill proficiencies stay the same, since there's an overlap between Perception (Elf and Far Traveller) which lets me pick Performance instead. But I lose my disguise kit proficiency in exchange for learning another Language: let's go with Sylvan, since it uses the Elvish alphabet and covers magical forest creatures. It's most likely never going to be useful, but whatever :lol:

EDIT: Changed your Background for you too, Badge.
