Which NPCs are they?

They changed a lot of things when converting to 3E as far as NPCs go (Drizzt went from a Ran16 to a Fight10/Barb1/Ran5, and Elminster has an even weirder class alottment).

They did what?
Fighter/Barbarian/Ranger?
wtf?

Yep.

Fighter = Zak's training, Barbarian = that year he spent in the underdark, Ranger = post-training from that one guy. That'd be my guess, anyway.

well that is dumb.
What did they do to Elminster?

One level of Figher, a few of Rogue, twenty some odd of Wizard, Archmage ...

Don't forget about the cleric levels. Actually, if you read the first Elminster book, it explains a *lot* about his class levels. He was actually a kickass cleric of Mystra. His love of magic and his godess guided him towards the arcane arts. Greenwood fit it in quite well.

in the elminster books it explains that at first he was a fighter with some bandits, then he became a theif for a few years, then he became an awesome cleric, and finally became a wizard. its ftr1/rog2/clr3/wiz20/acm5/epic4...basically its a shit load of multiclassing.

I'm appalled.

Drizzt is NEVER meant to be a barbarian.

actually, if you read either the Legend of Drizzt series or the Hunters Blades trilogy, youll understand why he is a barbarian. he spent a year in the underdark alone with only Gwen, and that was only half the time since gwen cant stay in the material plane forever. so instead he had to rely only on instincts and became nothing but "the hunter". a being that only concentrates on what he needs to destroy and nothing else. basically, he goes into a rage like state :-P i think it makes perfect sense after you read the books.

I only got the books a few days ago so I am not sure.
However....good gods man...what are you doing with Characters that high?

This conversion applies mainly to PCs:

38 levels of cleric+35 levels of mage= 73 levels of lame-ass retarded.
20th-Sep-2005 02:47 am (UTC)
Well the easy answer is you could make a Cleric 38/Wizard 35. I mean if you're in epic levels anyway, does it really matter that much?

Wait, is this one character or two?

How'd you get to 38 anyway? 2e High Level Campaigns gave a 30level limit.

Its not a normal person. its the dead sun god Amaunator. the storyline is basically Shar somehow got really powerful and encase Faerun in total night time minus the moon. Some people split up to figure out what happened to Selune, the others heard of the dead god in their travels and are traveling to the astral plane to see if his essence is still floating around (which it is). I was gonna try and get a huge battle out of it, but i dont know how to do this conversion :-(

DO NOT attempt a conversion.

For one thing, AD&D only really went up to 20th level. Reports of levels above that are (badly done) optional rules.

For another, the multiclass & deity thing is just, well, bad.

Stat Amaunator as a Rank 0 Deity, 20 HD of Outsider, 18th level cleric, 15th level mage. Here is your reference.

His CR will be significantly over 53--or, to put it another way, so far off the chart so as to not really matter. For a "nasty astral plane remnant", stat him as a 20 HD mindless Outsider with a single divine rank and a single divine ability (my suggestion is Divine Fire Mastery)

For $10 I'll do it for you, and throw in some tactics. ;)
