It all started not too long ago when I was first
introduced to Dungeons & Dragons by one of my friends. Ever since then my
imagination has been filled with thoughts and ideas about the game. I
started writing down some of the thoughts I had for characters and
creatures, these writings culminated into what you see before you. I
thought to myself, "I have so many characters created, why should I hoard
them all for myself?" That is when I decided to make this web site and
share my ideas with you.
My hope is that you will find pleasure and interest using my characters and creatures. I try to vary my creations as much as possible, this allows the user to choose a character that best fits the situation he/she wants to portray. All of the characters and creatures are original and unique, therefore there really is something for everybody!
Whether you are a Dungeon Master looking for some ideas
on characters and creatures to insert in your campaign or a Baldur's
Gate player looking for a character to add to your party, you will find
what you are looking for in the Cauldron.
In addition to varying the characters I make, I also like to leave you, the user, with many options. Therefore, you have several choices you can make when selecting a character or creature to use.
A. You can use the characters and creatures as they appear on
this web site, meaning you keep all their traits, stats, and other
information in tact.
B. You can use one or more traits about the character and make
the rest up on your own (e.g. use a character's biography, but roll new
stat scores or use a character's biography and stat scores, but change
their portrait or sound set for Baldur's Gate, Baldur's Gate 2, or
C. You can mix and match anything you'd like. Maybe you like
one character's name and biography, but you aren't thrilled about the
character's gender, race, or class. The answer is easy! Keep the name
and biography then reselect a new gender, race, or class.
D. Pen & Paper players can appreciate the options just as much
Baldur's Gate players, or any other Dungeons & Dragons Infinity
Engine computer game for that matter. A Pen & Paper player can copy
the stats of a character or creature and proceed from there, where as a
D&D video game player can import a character (.chr) or creature (.cre)
file into the proper game. After that, any kind of editing can be done
(see points B and C above).
