What do you think of Gnomes? I'm thinking of playing a gnome wizard or gnome bard, and go for the whole "my lifelong goal is to have my own blimp" schtick. Good idea for a character motivation, or overworked?

Yes.

My last Pathfinder character was a gnome sorcerer. 36 charisma by the time we beat the big bad bawss at lvl 20.

I always rolled like [email protected]#$, though. So I was spamming maximized Chain Lightning like there was no tomorrow at the end. Then, when we met the big bad bawss that shot a death effect breath weapon on me, I rolled a 1 on my fort save to avoid utter annihilation.

So much for his retirement plans on his demiplane he was about to create.

I've played, though much less than I'd like to.

Lately I've been interested in Legend, which will be hitting 1.0 before too long, but I still haven't had the time to put together a campaign or try to gather people to play one.

I used to ... when I was younger. Played D&D in the 80's along with Middle Earth, Rolemaster, Runequest. Call of Cthulhu, Star Trek, Maelstrom. Warhammer, Dragon Warriors, Tunnels & Trolls, Judge Dredd, Conan ... ok the list goes on.

The top and bottom of it is when the CRPG came into being I drifted off towards the single player game and never really went back.

Is Icewind Dale considered D&D?

It is. It's set in the Forgotten Realms and I think the game used 2nd Edition rules but the thread is related to the Pen n Paper game rather than computer versions. There have been some good Forgotten Realms CRPG's. Menzoberranzen comes to mind (that's going back a bit), Pool of Radiance, Curse of the Azure Bonds, Secret of the Silver Blades, Ruins of Myth Drannor and, of course, the Baldur's Gate series to name but a few.

Edit: How could I forget Neverwinter Nights ;)

This year, a few Co-Workers and I started up a game night (D&D). We did several nights of Star Wars D&D. We just started a Pathfinder Campaign. My character is a Kitsune White Necromancer (3rd Party Class).

Here is a good website for information. http://www.d20pfsrd.com/
This site has a lot of helpful information.

Yea, we play Pathfinder over here. I think I'd rather 5e, but at this point, all of us are too lazy to learn a new ruleset. XD

What kind of character are you running?

Those are multi-accounts, not multi-characters.

And yes, that's why a bunch of them are now locked.
