A response to this: http://www.co8.org/forum/showthread.php?p=94953#post94953 And so begin the "Tales of a Tal Tamir's Lone Elf Conjurer" Co8 v5.7.2 Point buy elven wizard as a single person in a party. No NPC recruitment (unless they are an escort quest). Male elf, average height for an elf, white hair in a braid, voice set "power hungry". Alignment: Neutral Good Stats: STR: 11 Dex: 16 Con: 12 Int: 16 Wis: 8 Cha: 8 Starting equipment: 200 arrows Longbow White Robe Eyeglasses Scholar's Kit Rat Familiar named "Hath" Longsword Starting feat: Spell Focus (conjuration) School focus: Conjuration Schools Banned: Evocation, Necromancy Starting spells: Charm Person, Color Spray, Grease, Mage Armor, Sleep. Class skills (maxed): Concentration, Spellcraft Cross Class Skills (all maxed out): Appraise, Tumble, Survival I noticed I forgot to get summon monster 1, so I bought a scroll at the shopmap and scribed it to spellbook. tried to test the various summons only to recall why I didn't get it... summon monster has a duration of 1 round per CL... at CL1 it lasts 1 round. useless... initial prepared spells: color spray, sleep, mage armor I just recalled I had previously altered the XP gain multiplier to be 1.00 (PnP values)... the default setting for the module IIRC is 0.72 (used as a method of balance), and in 5.7.2 it was changed to 0.6 So I am going to restart... Alright, I have switched it back to 0.6 now to start a new game. Note that being an elf is a problem for such a challenging attempt... as they are inferior to humans IMAO... but I will try it nonetheless. Alright, I rolled less money this time... I also failed my copy scroll spellcraft check, as such I don't have summon monster 1 (I have the scroll, I don't have it ready).
