    Here is the *edited* session log. Notable highlights include: alien prostitution, acrobatic engineers, habeus corpus, incest, grand theft auto, levitation, and bad one-liners.

    Roll with Fighter, it's the easiest.
    Then go whatever way you wish.

    Ya but it's been a while.

    Surprisingly, using a webcam to broadcast the battle grid is an ample solution to using maptools. As well, anyone that was in my campaign wasn't able to initially see my character but I've finally uploaded his sheet and I'll post it as soon as myth-weavers is back online.

    But fighters are dumb brutes with swords, I've never played a pure fighter in any RPG. I was thinking either wizard, ranger, or maybe rogue.

    Fighters are pretty much anyone who uses weapons and armour that can't cast magic and aren't a barbarian, anything from duellists and swash bucklers to honourable knights and grizzled mercenaries.

    I know, I'm just not interested in pure up-front melee classes. Maybe if it was required to balance a team I might play one but otherwise not for me, not for my first pet character.

    Try out a ranger. They get to choose between mastering archery or two-weapon fighting and are able to quickly acquire ranks in a large variety of skills. Overall, they are a very good secondary combatant.

    Cleric.
    That would probably be better, though.

    You should play one, they are fun as hell because of that very fact.

    That and "special" mounts if you know what i mean.

    Allow me to weigh in on the class argument with the hybrid Artificer/Warlord. You do damage, you heal, you buff, you give the party extra attacks. You can do no wrong. And you can do it all from the safety of 20/40 squares.

    My "hardcore" Atheism extends to fictional works, I could never be able to roleplay a religious character.

    I was edging towards that as it fits my character background the best, but it just doesn't feel "complete" without being able to throw lightning at fools.

    So Fighter, Paladin, Barbarian, Druid and Cleric are right out.

    That only leaves you with rogue, ranger, wizard and sorcerer. Oh, and forgot bard, which is fun if you like playing a charismatic bastard.

    "I need help with finding a class to play. I'm up for anything except Fighter, Paladin, Cleric, Barbarian and Druid."

    That only leaves you with rogue and ranger dude.
    Rogue, wizard, and ranger are the choices. But I think I'll settle for ranger, unless there's some way to multiclass without it being easy to nerf your character.

    At least if you're a "hardcore" atheist you can pretend to be some radical zealot, that would be extremely fun.

    I like being a hero, not a zealot.

    Besides, my character goes berzerk when she witnesses injustice, predjudice, and tryanny without a mandate from a deity.

    Coincidentally, the antagonist in our campaign is trying to destroy the gods.

    And I'm not really a hardcore atheist, just that I wouldn't put that level of trust in someone I can't fuck over if they fuck me over, nor would I believe in anything I don't have evidence for.

    But playing a character who vehemently denies that divine magic and gods are real could be entertaining.

    Play a Flat-Earth Atheist type character. Blame all divine occurances on something completely ridiculous.

    4E, I figured it was the most newbie-friendly and widely supported. So there is a way to dual class, eh? Is a ranger/wizard (I prefer the term mage to wizard but oh well) viable? Is dual-classing hard to do well?

    Perhaps I should spectate on a game before deciding my own character.

    Wingboy, if you're still in CredeSniper's group you have to get on Steam regularily and notify that you actually want to continue playing. If for whatever reason you don't notify us, we'll find someone else to fill your spot for the remainder of the game. I haven't been able to reach you once yet so I see this as the only viable option. The game is 3.5e, if anyone else is wondering.

    Yeah, my characters know they exist, but they're not the all knowing, all powerful ultimate force of good that the god in Abrahamic religions is, so there isn't the "Do what I say or suffer forever." deal in effect with them.

    Polytheistic religions still have that, only it's more unpredictable because religions with multiple gods usually depict them as assholes.

    Yeah, but in D&D if you do anything at all, it's likely to please one god and piss off another, so you're pretty boned.

    Most of us play and were talking about 3.5th edition or pathfinder, which is based off of it.
