If anyone is wanting to borrow Amulets of Wonder. I will have 4 to 5 of them available. Below is what the AoW will do for you this year.


Amulet of Wonder

Elemental Attunement: A player wearing an Amulet of Wonder chooses an element (Air/Earth/Fire/Water) at the beginning of the adventure during the coaching session. The Amulet provides the following benefits related to that element:

1. The player gets +2 energy damage to melee and missile attacks. The energy type depends on the chosen element (Air = shock, Earth = sonic, Fire = fire, Water = frost).

2. Spellcasters casting a damage spell may choose to change the damage type to their chosen element. Spellcasters do +2 damage with spells of their chosen element. (Air = shock, Earth = sonic, Fire = fire, Water = frost).

This effect could convert force damage (Magic Missile, Spiritual Hammer, Spiritual Maul, Glow Orb, Chromatic Orb, Prismatic Spray, Stone Storm), acid damage (Acid Ray), or divine damage (Searing Light, Sunburst) into shock/sonic/fire/frost.

3. The player takes half damage from the appropriate energy type. (Air = shock, Earth = sonic, Fire = fire, Water = frost).

The half damage is factored in after subtracting any damage/energy reduction. This does not stack with "half damage from the same energy" so a Ring of Fire Resistance does not stack with an Amulet of Wonder: Fire. It does stack with half damage due to Improved Evasion or the three-piece Mithral set.

4. Each element will have at least one additional effect which will be revealed later on in the adventure.

I also updated character classes based on the information we have. It makes it so everyone has either their first or second choice. It is making an assumption that Arp and Preston will play Bard & Fighter. (If one of them doesn't want to play Bard I will convince my friend to play Bard or take it myself and he can play Druid). If anyone sees any issues with this setup or character class or anything else let me know.

The amulet definitely has its usefullness thus year.....must weigh it against the stupendous pendant and medallion of greyhawk. Also the sooner we could nail down characters would help too.

It looks as if ranger is only chosen by myself so I will take that if that's not a problem.

Sorry for the vast delay on responding (internet has been very grrrrrr lately). Yes, I am happy to play Bard, and Preston will be set for Fighter. Thank you, Raven, for passing that info along.

Unless there are any objections, I will plan on running a Cleric this run. Cool?
Have you looked it up in the TDb ?

Have we determined what difficulty level this will be? These are our options:

Incognito wrote: This year there will be four difficulty levels:

NEW Normal = OLD Normal
NEW Hardcore is easier than OLD Hardcore
NEW Nightmare is harder than OLD Hardcore but easier than OLD Nightmare
NEW EPIC = OLD NIGHTMARE

My preference would be for (new) Hardcore or (new) Nightmare. I have no desire to run Epic.

I don't know anyone's build but the three we are doing but I would be fine with New Nightmare with the understanding the some of us are likely going to die.
