We should probably figure out some classes :)

I’m the new guy who is borrowing tokens for this so I’d let you all choose your mains and tell me. If I had my preference I would be willing to do rogue the two I’m most familiar with. What’s our plan, combat or puzzle if there’s a choice?

I'm okay with puzzle or combat; whichever the group wants to do. I have several runs over the weekend so I'm sure I will see both at least once. :)

How helpful would a Bard be for a double down? I can put together a Bard, Barbarian, Druid, or Paladin depending on what others want to run and what's useful to the group (I have the relic for each of these classes).

Casey, I have a few Rogue tokens you're welcome to use including the Legendary necklace, but I'm guessing Fiddy has you covered. :)

Elf Wizard is my main, though with class changes, less punchy than it used to be but still solidly NM. I have a decent Ranger as well that with a bit of +hit would hit solidly for NM. Those would be by far my strongest builds. After the 2021 tokens, I'll have a bit more classes available.

Bard importance can vary a lot on a double down. You're not multiplying your damage bonus across as many teammates, but your to-hit bonus turning a miss into a hit can be even more important. So if you've got a team that needs the to-hit help (say a Cleric, Rogue, Monk, and Ranger built for balance and not just offense), Bard can be pretty key. If you've got 2 Wizards and a spellcasting Druid on the team though, the Bard to-hit becomes less important. Sounds like we aren't headed towards the latter, so Bard seems like a solid choice.

Elf Wizard can be pretty key on a Double-Down. I've got a +2 Staff of Power you can use if you'd like to do the "I cast Alertness as a scroll" every room.

If we do go Rogue, Bard, Elf, I'll probably take Druid (balanced between polymorph and spells)

If we have Bard and Druid would we need a Cleric then or is there enough heals here? I doubt I'll have many healing potions after my pacifist run on Friday.

I don't think a Cleric is needed. We've got a Druid and a Bard. And if needed, I have plenty of healing potions/shrooms.

Oh, and I've got a full set of CoAS so we'll have the extra 10HP from that if people equip them (ghosts can equip them too)

Ok, I'm down with this. I'll go ahead and select Rogue then so I can get the rogue box email today. Unless there is an objection.

Thank you my friend! Fiddy has me set up with the necklace already. If you have a extra Dungeonbane Kilt then I can swap out ring of heroism for something else. I'm a bit low on will and fort saves but I seem to have all the good rogue goodies.

Looks like one fight may be ranged only so I can still sneak attack at ranged!

The elusive Staff of Power - absolutely. Sadly it's missing from my kit and no one wants to seem to part with theirs. :)
