I'll roll for names, sure. Makes sense

More what I was saying is that each player must name and give a bit of backstory to the kobold they are controlling (so as not to increase the responsabilites of the DM while also possibly adding interesting named characters if any survive past the attack)

Ah, well if you want to pick a name and a few sentences of background or personality feel free!

That was the plan but I was thinking it should be more of a concrete rule do as to keep up the feeling that everyone in the Warren is a different person. If we have to make  new Kobold each time one dies then that person should have a name and a backstory of some sort as a rule.

Heh, I like the idea of giving the kobold fodder names and a little personality so that they feel like real losses to the tribe, not just a number. Seems like a fun guideline for people who are into it. There are lots of name generators and even character trait generators for ideas on the fly.

I'm going to wait to name/control one until we have the clan mob them. I don't think we're necessarily meant to have one follow us around all the time, and Krinn wouldn't put up with it anyway. ^__^

I won't require you to make a backstory for your expendable helper, but would appreciate it if you at least rolled a name so I don't have to. If you WANT an apprentice or buddy all the time that is up to you, but this feature is intended to even the odds in combat.

Does that clear things up? Any further questions, while we wait for everyone to choose starting positions?

Looks like we are good to start. Over lunch I will add tokens to the map and we can get going!

Thanks for bearing with me, when my wife is pregnant her morning sickness lasts basically all day in the 1st trimester. I have been stepping up around the house and have been unavoidably delayed DMing this game. But I think we should be good now that spring cleaning is out of the way.

Thanks for your patience.

Man, morning sickness is no joke! Good on you for stepping up! Don't worry too much about us - good things are worth waiting for.

Ready and rearing to go.

EDIT: HP for Packrat should be 28/28. It's not very obvious on the sheet, but an easy way to calculate it is (4+(6*Fighter Level))+(Con Mod*Fighter Level) with fighter level == 3, which is how it's calculated on the sheet.
