Baldwin the Merciful's - CoT Campaign (Inactive)

Game Master baldwin the merciful

This is Council of Thieves AP. Westcrown, City of Twilight, once was the center of Aroden's faith, but now it symbolizes despair. By day, the city remains a vibrant center of trade; but, by night only those with a death wish venture out.

Levels can very. I heard CoT ends around lvl 13 due to the structure but it depends on Baldwin

perfect. i was just hoping for at least around 10. no point in aiming for arcane trickster if we were ending around 6 or so.

do you think arcane trickster would be a good addition to the group? still same character (elf, backround, etc) just levels in rogue as well as wizard. i also like the idea of a wizard arcane trickster, little bit different.


I think this AP suggests the game concludes aroung the 13th level, but I run a bunch of side adventures so it could get a few levels higher easily. Of course that depends on RL, members living, the group staying together, the fun factor and so forth.


@CampinCarl

Arcane Trickster is not a bad idea. A little overlap for covering bases so we arn't left hanging in case of an unfortanate death.

Might be better in discussion, but a possible way to help things get moving when Baldwin thinks it is time for main plot stuff is just put up a *Main Plot* title on top of the post. The side adventures are great, but the heart of the AP is the main plot so this can help get us back on track.

If we can get through a book every 3-4 months that would be awesome


Am I the only one that is not either ranger or rogue/something? I am happy with the character I made and so wish all who submit luck. From the way the group posts, it seems like a great party to be in.

Edit: Went back and saw it was rangers or arcane. Hard competition.


Pure rogue is fine as well. I like rogues, especialy goblin rogues.


Goblins not allowed. I think a goblin would have been crazy. I would like to play one someday. Can't help but want to be an alchemist with one.

Andoran

Finished the raw details. 2 levels of rogue, 1 in wizard. that gives him cantrips, a familiar (snake, bonus to bluff and it's a sneaky attack when i get grappled), a rogue trick, trapfinding, and a cool subschool in illusion that allows him to hide in crowds. oh also evasion :D. plan on taking 1 more level in rogue (sneak attack goes to 2d6 and get trap sense). then i'll add another 2 of wizard, then prestige.

also helps explain why my sister lia disapproves of me a little. she's more of NG, and a full wizard. she dislikes my sneaky way of doing things.

Yep, but hopefully one can play them in other APs. They pop up a lot in Skull and Shackles

@auvrelth. Base stuff looks good. Rogues are excellent for flanking with our beatsticks(John,Duncan)


As an FYI, I will be closing this one by noon.

I want everyone who submitted a character to confirm they are on board with the posting requirements. I undersatnd RL happens and there will be slow days, but its best if we are all on the same page going in.

Cheliax

@baldwin, for magic items are you ok with me purchasing a Cloak of Resistance +1 and 5 Potion of Enlarge Person?

I am completely on board. I'm heading off to college next week, and i'll only be unavailable for a an hour or two at a time (can probably still sneak on my computer). I'm very excited to get my online gaming started.


So here is Tevyn's story.

Tevyn de Fonseca a Wind Elemental Sorceror originally from Pezzack in Cheliax. While on a trip to Westcrown four years ago to buy new equipment for his family's farm was pressganged into the Chelaxian Navy at the age of 13 because they needed a cabin boy. The shanghai was perpetuated by a beautiful Lieutenant Lemara Sarini of said navy and powerful house in Cheliax by getting the boy really drunk.

While serving in the navy, he learned the profession of sailing. He had always been a very charismatic boy, where he excelled at playing percussion, whether it be with sticks or his hands. He also discovered he was a sorceror one day after his 14th birthday while at sea in the Fever Sea. He knew if the captain of his ship found out about his abilities, they would never allow him to end his enlistment, of course it was a forced enlistment.

His drumming during his ship's engagements and his ability to play cards endeared him with his fellow sailors and now that his enlistment is finished, he is staying with one eyed Jimmy for the time being before he makes the long trek back to Pezzack to take back the family farm.

Since his enlistment ended he has befriended one barkeeper named Johannes Davenport where he Tevyn plays the drums for all the folk in the bar to earn money.

Known NPCs: Lemara Sarini, noblewoman
One eyed Jimmy; former sailor, rogue fence
Johannes Davenport; Barkeeper of the Fiddling Ape

That is fine.


I am capable. I have a standard game on Thursday and weekends are hit and miss for me. I should only be unavailable 5 days through October that I know of on weekends unless have to travel.

I am trying to get an AP group together for once or twice a month on Friday nights so my nephew can play. Other than that then I should be around through most afternoons and evenings and maybe even early mornings. If need earlier then just need to know. I am on Central time.


@baldwin about magic items. i'm thinking of having a cloak of elvenkind (+5 on stealth checks, 2500gp) that was my father's before the raiders killed him (sentimental value, but of course still count that against my total wealth). probably just buy basic equipment then keep the rest. is that ok?

sorry forgot to post as Auvrelth


Well, as a poster, I am an avid poster and can post upwards of five times a day if need be. My job gives me a lot of free time to post. Hopefully Tevyn fits your requirements.


Seriously though guys.

A slow day for us is 2 posts per player. Rarely happens.
A normal day is 3-5 and some days we have done 10 a piece.

Please only submit if you can manage this. ;)

1,500 is the most for one item at this level, sorry.


I think that 2-5 in non combat situations are fine. If one is off doing some chatting with a NPC, then going slower shouldn't be a problem.(Especially if the posts are flavor scenes between the PC and a PC controlled NPC) if the entire group is gathered, making yourself present should be enough in many situations. Posting will be more of an issue during combat.

Cheliax

@Baldwin: I understand the level of posting you require, and I feel that I will be able to keep up with it (despite the fact that Fantasy Football will be starting soon)

Andres Saied de Vyre, fourth son of the noble House Saied is complete. I will be posting a fleshed out back story soon.

Mechanically, the concept behind Andres is pretty simple. Via Freebooter's Bane (And next level Freebooter's bond) he will provide melee bonuses to the party. Getting in close he will use his Guisarme to get in close and trip. During large scale fights he can drink a potion of enlarge person to increase his reach, and with Combat Reflexes he can make multiple attacks of opportunity per round.


Perhaps the Elven Cloak could be held in 'layaway' so when Auvrelth has earned the proper amount of gold, he can get it back.

Oh that's right! well that's just a small change, no worries. it was more for flavor purposes than anything. as an arcane trickster i can tend to just cast a spell instead of having to buy a bunch of magic items. hmm...how about this. a +1 cloak of resistance (1000gp), and a 1st level pearl of power (also 1000gp)


Okay, here's a not finished quick reworking/editing of another character into a Sunny.

The 'Brawler' type of fighter. Very good a close quarters hand to hand. Plus, at higher levels, she should have a 'fight finishing' trick which will let her take out single foes quickly. (But not lethally)

The character page needs more work, but since I am fast running out of submission time t'is the quickest thing I could do.

*Bows*


Awww, I was hoping to see a Dwarven shield magus from another game. Duncan's estranged sister...

That would have been an awesome team.


Must admit to being new to the possibilities of the Magus. Will have to look up that one.

I have a friend developing the 'Staff' Magus as a character in another game. That seems to be doing well.

Much cheers to all.

Edit; And t'is only now I see the PM. :)

An interesting idea, but I think I'll stick with this iteration of Sunny for now.


Aww. Crap.


Yay! We need a happy comrade. So much doom and gloom hanging over our heads.

Andoran

just updated Auvrelth with all the finer details, tell me whatcha think

Cheliax

Background of Andres is done! I love that you guys are up this late.

Background

Born the fourth son to Viggo Saied of House Saied, Andres was raised in luxury on the island of Vyre. Everything was provided for Andres, from tutors and servants to even his own whipping hafling. Despite House Saied owing fealty to House Jeggare, life was good for the young Andres.

Shortly after Andres turned sixteen, his father Conte Viggo Saied died from old age. Inheritance can be a rough thing for a fourth son of a minor house. Andre’s eldest brother Ellard assumed the title of Conte. The second eldest Franco was given control of the houses shipping fleet. The third eldest Jaque, was accepted as a acolyte for the Church of Asmodean in Egorian, with “donations” paid to ensure a swift promotion. For Andres however, he was given a commission within the Chelish Navy, and bought the title of Chevalier.

Despite living on an island for most of his life, Shipboard life was an experience that Andres was ill accustomed to. Gone were the days of luxury and leisure. Now the crack of the whip, hard disciple and fear were the watch words of the day. Suddenly the wool was torn away from Andres eyes and he began to see the desperate and pathetic lives that halflings spent living under the yoke of Asmodeus and House Thrune. And it was more than he could bear.

Two years ago when Andres ship the Hand of Thrune was docked in Corentyn the second mate of the Thrune Vayne Ardred killed a Halfling sailor that Andres had befriended. The rest of the senior officers were in the city, enjoying a port call and Andres snapped. He his grief and anger at seeing his friend killed he stabbed Vayne in the gut and left him on the main deck to die. Before he left, he unlocked the rest of the hafling slaves, told them to escape before lighting the Hand of Thrune on fire to cover his escape.

Since then Andres has been on the run moving along the coast, A year ago he reached Westcrown. Hoping that Westcrown was far enough away from Corentyn that he would evade notice; he decided to stop his flight. Since he arrived, he has tried to keep a low profile and settle down. Andres is not sure if the Dottari or House Thrune knows that he started the fire, but he dosen’t want to find out.

More recently Andres has learned that a man matching the description of Vayne has been seen around the south docks looking for Andres, and offering a reward for anyone with knowledge of his location.

NPC's and location:

Conte Ellard Saied de Vyre- Brother and Lord of House Saied. (Location: Vyre) (Description: Straight black hair with a stern and remorseless face. Starting to put on weight as he enters his middle years. 44 years old, 5'11)

Demi-Conte Franco Saied de Vyre – Brother and Heir to House Saied. (Location: Vyre) (Description: Brown wavy hair, with a large bulbous nose. Wears glasses and is overweight. 42 years old, 5'6)

Arche-Priest Jaque Saied de Vyre – Brother and Cleric of Asmodeus (Location: Unknown, last seen in Egorian) (Bald, with dark eyebrows and piercing eyes. Since seen last has reportedly been branded with a mark of Asmodeus on his neck. Tall and Gaunt in stature. 36 years old 6'3)

Larko – Male human sailor that Andres has been known to drink with in the past and share a sea stories or two.

Bingo Tealeaf – Male Halfling craftsman and a local contact with the Hafling Underground Railroad, that knows of Andres history in helping hafling slaves. (description: curley blond hair with green eyes. who's hand are constantly covered in ink from his work at the local news bill press, slim, 41 yrs old, 3’6)

Francis Tarker – Elderly Male Human, who is a retired thief, turned inventor. Andres landlord. (description: Long grey hair, blue eyes and walks with a cane that he is fond of gesturing with, 73 yrs old, 5’8.)

Vayne Ardred – Male Human, Officer of the Chelish Navy. Currently hunting Andres. (description: Short black hair, grey eyes, always in uniform. Fit and tall, 33 yrs old, 6’1.)


Okay, swapped a trait for one from the campaign.

Am thinking Sunny works as a surprise bouncer at the river side docks etc.

No idea about contact around there atm. No time at home to rebuild the character completely. Doing it as I can.

Hope Sunny so far at least has people intrigued.

Much cheers to all.

Andoran

@baldwin Updated Tiasar's history (changed quite a bit). Also included some very interesting NPC's that might give you some fun. On a side note, I hope you don't feel like I'm trying to change your campaign by inventing some NPC's. I included one that already existed as a friend, but I just don't know enough about any of them. I tried to make them both very low profile people who are quirky and interesting. Tell me what think!

I'd love to hear feedback from everyone else as well. Anything i should change or can improve on?


Just figured I would put a bit of hmmphh into my NPCs.

Lenara Sarini
Lenare is the 32 year old third daughter of the second son of House Sarini. She is a bit too pragmatic and doesn't fit into her family's courtly role as fools. She joined the Chellish Navy at 18 wanting to see the world but soon her charisma and good looks became a recruiting tool for the service which she carried out without question. She was especially fond of recruiting in the colonies and rebel provinces of Cheliax.

Her standing in the service has brought her to the attention of not just the fleet and she has been promoted against her will to Lieutenant Commander and now has to stay in Westcrown.

She has auburn hair and green eyes.

Tevyn hates her but also has a boyhood crush on her.

One-eyed Jimmy or Jimmy d' Anchorsenda
Rogue former sailor(46). Primarily as a fence. Jimmy was born to an Arcadian woman and a minor member of the House of Arionne, who was looking for suitable slaves on the pristine continent but instead had a tumultuous affair with a native woman. Half-breed children among the tribes of Arcadia are shunned as a general rule, especially when coupled with a CHellish nobleman. At 15, Jimmy stowed away on the Arodosian Archipelago, but unknown to him it was a naval vessel. When the crew found him, they made him their cabin boy.

Always lucky with cards and reading people, he was an invaluable asset to the ship's crew until his right eye was burned chemically during a ship to ship melee. Tevyn was able to save his life using his bardish healing magic. The next time they made port was in Westcrown and he lives on his theiving skills and a modest pension for his service.


About posting requirements, several times a day is usually fine with me. However, I will be moving next month and there will be about a weeks time where I will be limited to posting from my phone, but should still manage a couple of posts a day.


This is who I have so far, if I missed someone politely mention it on this thread, it was unintentional:

Tweaker - Rogue -
Lucrezia Villanova - Urban Ranger
Anreas Saied de vyre, Chevalier - Freebooter/Urban Ranger/Skirmisher
Sunny - maritial artist/ninja bouncer
Auvrelth Tiasar- wizard/rogue
Vonzara -sor/rog working towards Arcane Archer.
Tevyn de Fonseca - Wind Elemental Sorceror1/Bard(Drummer)2

Who ever is selected there may be a few slight adjustments with backgrounds/NPCs that will assist with transitioning in to the story. Once selected fine tuning of the character is permitted and encouraged early on to make sure everyone is happy and it's working.

I have my work cut-out.

RL happens, so that should not be an issue.


This was an difficult decision, I would like to invite more but space is limited to two. I have an errand to run, so I'll close the recruitment and make the announcement:

Teak Ullar "Tweaker" and Lucrezia Villanova come on over to the discussion thread.

Thanks to everyone who applied.


Welcome to the newcomers

Cheliax

Congradulations Teak Ullar "Tweaker" and Lucrezia Villanova! I'm very envious! Have fun!


Thanks and sorry the ones who did not make it.
