If you could use a straightforward frontline warrior with some small and on-and-off D&D experience, then I'm in to give it a shot.
Btw. I have quite a number of D&D4e materials in PDFs. If needed, PM.

Starting from a point higher up might be unfair to those looking to play a gnome.

Sorry, couldn't resist. I had a huge array of jokes about height lined up for Klear in HM campaign.

I did consider this earlier and while I don't want to start at rock-bottom (i.e. CL 1) I also if I recall my one attempt at starting @ Paragon tier players weren't entirely up to suddenly handling level 11 characters. And that was with people that had one or two games under their belt, now we're going to have some people new to the system so yeah, not the best choice. So I decided to go for something around the middle of the road between these two and after considering adventures at hand I settled for one that is designed for CL 4 - not much of a push up, but still more than bare basics to play with.

Don't run off starting on character just yet though, because there are going to be some...

If you're reading this it means that:
a) some minimal background was posted alongside of character creation guidelines and houserules - check the first post of the thread
b) everyone will have PM send in a second containing a package to get newbies started (and non-newbies can at very least use the Character Builder custom campaign file)
c) this thread is now repurposed as a OOC (Out-of-character) thread for the game

As stated in the PM if any questions arrise - ask away.

I hope it is not too late to show interest in taking part in this game.

As far as my experience goes, I have played a few very short DnD 3.5 games a long time ago. I'm not sure how well I can roleplay, but I'd like to try.

Are you limiting us to common/Uncommon magic item freebies or can we pick up some rare stuff too?

Greetings.

Nightfalcon here.  If there still a spot at the table I'd be interested in taking an open seat.

Malek, no need to Scared, I'm old but not that old.  I haven't gone old school on any GM this entire year (it's been slow).

Seriously, I don't know what LuckyDee has been saying about me.  It might be true that I remember them inventing dirt but sand was already there and yes I have played games that predated polyhedrol dice but heck all the continents were in place by then. 

As for your GM'ing.  Been there, done that, on both sides of the table.  I know how hard it is to GM and how things don't always go as planned.  While I've run some campaigns that I thought went really well, I've had some that died.

Also I know you ran Hackmaster so if that is your style of game, I can roll (role) with that.  Mostly I want a chance to give 4E a try.  I went from 3.5 to Pathfinder  and while very happy with those decisions, I never gave 4E a fair shake.  It's like green eggs and ham, I might like it Sam-I-am.

I'll start rereading the rules and coming up with character concepts. 

In the mean do we know what others are playing so we're not duplicating roles in the group?

How do themes work? I have not found that option in the utility you PMed and I have not found any specific information about themes online. Where should I look?

I'm creating a Psion. Also, I chose the ritual "Comrade's Succor" (allows for the redistribution of healing surges among characters), so there is probably no need for others to take it.

I'm making a Mul Runepriest. Also slave, be sure to buy reagents for your ritual. I've forgotten it myself quite a few times.

I'm having slight trouble getting the update to work -- I'll try again and do a feedback.

Speaking of equipment - any advice what a Dragonborn Fighter might need (aside from obvious items, like weapons and armor)?
