Half-elves : These share the hardiness of their human half along with the sleep and charm resistances of their elven parent, but not their long lives. And like their elven parents, are capable of noticing things out of the ordinary. Gnomes : These are treated as shorter and slimmer versions of dwarves in the game, although they tend to be a little better as thieves. Halflings : Resistant to magic and poison, they are about half the size of humans and can make decent fighters and thieves.
Human: The most common race in the Forgotten Realms, they are average in most respects but have no major weaknesses, either. Attributes Each character has a set of basic attributes that affect various abilities, such as combat prowess and how many spells a magic user can memorize before they must rest and re-acquire their spells once again. Strength STR - determines physical power and damage with weapons; also affects encumbrance in combat Dexterity DEX - reflexes and the ability to remain hard to hit in combat; affects ranged weapons such as bows as well as a thief's abilities Constitution CON - a character's health is determined by this and hit points are derived from this score and a bonus calculated against it with every level.
This also determines a character's chances for coming back to life with a resurrection spell, but in the process, a point of constitution is permanently lost. This is an important score for magic users as it determines how many spells they can memorize and use per level. Wisdom WIS - this is important to clerics and determines how many spells they can store in memory and use Attributes, such as Strength and Dexterity, are also affected by the selection of race and certain bonuses and minuses are allotted across them as a result.
The alignments available to the player in Pool of Radiance are as follows: Lawful Good - Characters that are based on this alignment strictly interpret the rules and respect order above all else for the benefit of everyone Lawful Neutral - Moderation is far more important than the extreme, balancing their decisions between good and evil Lawful Evil - The strong survive to enslave the weak, but one must rule in order to conquer and order must keep those that follow this character in line.
An army is always stronger than a mob. Neutral Good - Some rules are needed along with the freedom to decide what is best depending on the situation at hand True Neutral - Everything must be balanced; both good and evil have their place and neither must overcome the other Neutral Evil - Law and chaos aren't as important as the results in bringing evil to the world Chaotic Good - Random actions and the freedom to implement them are more important than the rules in valuing life and ensuring the welfare of others Chaotic Neutral - Randomness and chaos are more preferable to being evil or good Chaotic Evil - This character will go to any lengths to grab power and influence, disregarding anything that may make sense or in cooperating with others to achieve their goals.
Unpredictable and ruthless. The basic classes are: Fighters - They can fight with any armor or weapons, but have no magical ability. When they reach 7th level, they can get an extra attack per round. Thieves - They can disarm traps, undo locks, and help themselves to anything that isn't well protected.
They can't wear any armor heavier than leather, but they can backstab in combat for critical damage. Clerics - Fighting priests that can wield a mace, but no edged or pointed weapons, as well as use armor. They pray for their spells and automatically memorize any of the spells available for a level when they reach it. Magic Users - These are the spellcasters of the party and able to conjure the elements or deal damage with their magic. While fragile, they have the potential to be the most powerful members of any party as they become more experienced.
Locations Pool of Radiance has an extensive list of locations to visit throughout its campaign. The City Council - Here, the party can receive missions and news of other events that may concern them The Docks - The party can use a boat to take them to inaccessible parts of Old Phlan or into the wilderness surrounding the city The Inns - These give the party a guaranteed safe haven to rest Encamp , but cost money to do so.
Once you being your stay, however, it can last as long as you want it to. The Taverns - Gossip, news, and random pieces of information may filter into the party's ears from a visit or two The Training Hall - This is where the characters can get training from NPCs non-party characters at higher levels than they are, add and remove PCs player characters from the party.
Training characters can help improve their abilities. The Shops - Every adventurer knows the value of a well stocked shop whether it is in looking for new weapons, armor, or items to save themselves from a poisoned death. They can even identify items for you with the right price. The Temples - Here, players can heal their members or bring them back from the dead, although resurrections are costly to both the purse and to the character being brought back.
