Excited Group.
Argh, the guys want to roll up characters this saturday, I'm scrambling to get prepped :) At least rolling up doesn't require loads of prep. I whipped up this campaign intro speech, admittedly I give away a few hints, but I thought it was worth it to get the 'epic' flavour flowing from the start. Welcoming Feedback:

Welcome, my friends, so begins another desperate quest. Evil never dies, it merely falls to us to keep it at bay. Others might enjoy their moments of peace, paid with our blood and souls, but the hero knows it unlikely that he will share much in the respite so dearly gained. Omens of doom have painted the sky, and your dreams are traced with madness. Strange whispers hint that a heavy burden lies upon you, indeed that the very foundations of reality are at stake. You stand to lose your lives, and perhaps more, but if not you to withstand, then no one. The threads of fate are pulled taut, vibrating at your every step. May you tread carefully, for there will be no second chances. Trust no one but yourselves, yet help may come from the most unexpected sources. Fate has chosen you, no time to bemoan the bitter chance that has thrust you upon this path; dire plans ripen like swollen corpses. May your swords lie loose in your sheaths, and the gods stand at your backs. I wish you luck.

I like it. And I don't think you give anything away really. I see what you mean, with dreams of madness and the warning to trust no one, but the players won't have a clue what you really mean by that until it's too late. And as for the foundations of reality being at stake? That goes without saying - what kind of epic would it be if they weren't going to save the world?

Rollups
Excitement building even more after 3 of my 4 proposed players made it to the rollup event. So far the group consists of a human cleric 4, a halfling ranger 2/rogue 2, and a grey elf wizard 3/rogue 1. Expecting the 4th player to play a human fighter if he is in. The halfling especially got some lucky rolls, I was using the organic 4d6 method which I felt (and still feel) gives a playable character with some more personality than the default system.
