    Default GIMPs. Fun little game to play with classes. or as your 4th role.

    There is a game we played in DDO with character creation. It was called GIMP or the "Get into Multi-class Project".
    Since we are already multi-classed by design I'd thought this would be fun.
    Here are the rules. I've changed them to fit RIFT.
    There are two ways to play.

    ORIGONAL: Make a new character. From scratch.

    Altered: use an empty role.( This is cheating, it breaks the item rules, but most people don't want to make an alt.)
    ADDITIONS for playing altered:
    1. Must have completed all the normal class quests for your base class.
    2. PVP CLASS isn't added since its ONLY pvp oriented. If you want to make an ONLY PVP GIMP, Make it on another role. :P
    3. Use an empty Role(spec) no need to make a new character like DDO. (This is cheating though)
    4. Have fun and be honest. If you are going to go through a dungeon as a group of gimps. Don't change your role to something well thought out.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    USE THE /ROLL# command (example /roll 3)
    You will have to do this with either your main your altering OR with another character on chat.

    Originally Posted by THE RULES
    A GIMP is a character of a randomly chosen race, three randomly chosen classes, who randomly chooses one of his three classes to advance upon leveling. GIMPs are generally ill-equipped. You'll find no twinks here! (unless played as an altered which is too late)

    Character creation
    Players will need to make official rolls. An official roll is a die roll made with 2 guild witnesses.

    First step is to select the race: Roll a d3.

    -Then, a players rolls for classes. He rolls on 1d8 Once a class is rolled, it cannot be rejected unless it is excluded by a prior class. (can't be two pyromancers for example)
    -Numbers 1-8 will be according to the List below.
    -The choices of class are final for the GIMP role.
    -These classes are rolled on at each quest that gives a new role in the tutorial zone at the beginning of the game

    Leveling
    -Player rolls d3. You spend a point in the rolled class. 1,2,or 3 from left to right respectively.
    -You roll once per skill point, till you are out skill points.
    -When a roll has been made you may put your skill point anywhere you want in that selected tree.

    EXAMPLE
    Trenton want to make a GIMP. He's playing guardian, He rolls a d3 and scored a 2. He's an high elf. He rolls a d4 and its a 1. He's a Warrior. (or opens a free role slot if he's playing an altered since race and class were already picked. CHEATER!) Then he rolls an 8 on a D8, he is a Beastmaster. Then he rolls a 1, he is a Champion. He next rolled a 8, Beastmaster, but he can't be a Beastmaster since he is already one. He finally rolls a 4, Warlord, so Trenton will be a Champion/Beastmaster/Warlord

    Trenton has Skill points to spent
    He makes an official roll on a D3, telling his mates that 1 = Beastmaster, 2= Champion, 3 = Warlord. (left to right in order received) He rolls a 3. Trenton will thus put 1 skill point into Warlord where ever he wishes. This will continue untill you run out of skill points.

    wait wait wait wait
    That means we can't plan anything ahead!
    Exactly.


    LOOT
    Gimp multiclassing means nothing if you have high end to level crafted gear, so the loot is also very restricted:

    - A GIMP can NOT use crafted gear.
    - A GIMP can only use what he gets in the chests, mobs, or as end rewards. He can also use the money he gets to buy from regular merchants (pots, scrolls, wands, mounts,leveling skills).
    - A GIMP cannot, ever, use the brokers or the auction house.
    - A GIMP can give an item he recieved as an end reward to a party member, if done immediately after the quest/rift/invasion. Once the group disband, or once a new quest is selected, the trade cannot happen. This way, after a quest, a group of GIMPs can all banter together as they select end-rewards.
    Need,Greed, or Pass as necessary, Remember there is no trading to other characters that are not GIMPS. So no need to role need on plate for an alt if your a mage. ALSO In the case of long drawn out invasions and quests/dungeons list your artifacts after you get them.
    - A GIMP cannot receive any items from another source.
    - The only exception is, at ONE time, a gimp can receive, ONCE, a Large slotted bag max of 12 slots.
    BUT they have to buy it from the merchant and make it there on foot. (98 gold)
    - A fellow party member can, before, during, or after a quest, give potions, to a fellow member.
    - GIMPS can share quests.

    Other Rules
    - GIMPs or GIMP Mode can only group with other GIMPS or people in GIMP mode.
    - GIMPs can use any lame, cheesy, strategy, like safe spots, etc..., because, after all, they are gimps, and will need all the help they can get.
    - IF Altered wants to play his gimp role OR as his main he has to remove ALL CRAFTED ITEMS off his character and start playing with the Original item rules.

    I would be happy to roll an alt for this. Would be interesting to say the least. And a fun timewaster when you don't want to be serious =]

    I tried to so some thinking converting this into rift.

    There are still some odds and ends I need to nail down when I get time.

    I tested it and its VERY viable.
    And yes... you very well may be extremely GIMPed. :P

    Someone should pick a server and start a guild just for this purpose. Would be fun for alts.

    Default I love this idea

    If I had 4 guildies I could get to do this with me (So I wouldn't appear as a dufus to "outsiders") I would do this in an instant. In fact, this is all I would do for a month!

    Anyone know of a Guild/Server that is doing this? Possibly an alt guild? I'd be interested in participating.

    I would also participate in a regular group for this, although I'm not going to leave my guild for it.

    I'd be up for rolling an alt for this, as would a guildie I reckon.
    Could end up with some hilariously bad soul combos.

    There isn't really a need to roll and alt you can convert any character into a gimp. Infact my third role is my gimp build :P
