Una would be so like "Told you so."

Andoran

Tee hee... and welcome (back)!!!


We are looking for a 4th player at level 7th for our Crimson Throne Game. We have Healing and we have fighting power.. short on Arcane or roguish skills. We have a human-male, Paladin of IOMEDAE, a Dwarven-male, Inquisitor of GORUM, a human-male Druid.

Post proposals.. really anything would work... looking for two slots!


I'm in another of Megan's games. I'd be up for another game,a rogue sounds nice.


Cool... likely we might have to find you to maintain story continuity as we are walking into an 'actual' dungeon for holding prisoners of House Arkona in Korvosa. A Major Noble House ...apparently completely overrun by Rakshasa! Though its possible we might find you wandering the Maze trying to get out? I expect you would generate your gear based on wealth by level at 7th.


A little about me as a poster, since I know that posting rate is bound to come up. I GM three games here on the boards and I plan in about 10. Some are rapid 2-3/day post games, some like the Kingmaker game that Megan GM's , are 2-3/week post games. I'm OK with both.

Would a background as a nobleman who was an enemy of House Arkona be beneficial then? Or perhaps a burglar who got caught at the wrong place and sent down to the dungeons? I think the idea of a nobleman who can disarm traps pretty far fetched....

I'll look into it more later on.


Oh I would so love to play in one of Megan's games. So far, we've both been players once, and she played in one of mine.

I offer Edmund Gwenn, a sage-bloodlined, middle-aged, human sorcerer. Edmund owned a book store and was quite happy to read every book that went through his shop. He read several on magic and found that by doing so, he had trained himself in the arcane arts, to an extent. He would have been content to spend his remaining years with his books, but his only son went missing one day, and Edmund dusted off his magic books, closed his shop, and set out on his search. Originally, this was a motivation that led him to Rappan Athuk, but I'm sure that motivation will work a hundred times better in the chaos of mid-Crimson Throne Korvosa. I would assume his search angered done nobleman, and that's how he wound up in this dungeon.

As for his build, unlike all my other sorcerers who are built around a theme, Edmund's "theme" is "all the player's favourite spells". He uses the favoured class bonus and Expanded Arcana feats to know as many spells as possible.

He's currently level 2, and I would tweak a few things in addition to leveling him up.


We're all 8th Ashe.. Unless there supposed to come in a level behind..


Opps! My bad.. no level 8 just like our more mindful dwarf said.. my bad!


Dotting for interest. No time right now, but have a rogue/wizard from another CoT campaign.


Here is GM Niles' character. Ignore the profile, I'll update it. I recycle profiles.

Uriah Lewis, world traveler and thief:
Uriah is a Chelaxian from Korvosa. He spent his formative years as a curpurse working the merchant's district. A brush with Hellknights in his teen years sent him running from Korvosa on the first thing he could, a caravan going through Casmaron to Tien Xia. He enjoyed caravaning, and made several return trips, each time the caravan would stop in a town, he would take the opportunity to "enrich" himself at the expense of some rich merchant. His travels in Minkai led him to study several texts of Ninjutsu of the Swallowtail Clan. It was these texts which taught him how to focus his mind and body to perform tasks that he never dreamed possible. The caravan eventually stopped in Magnimar, and then Sandpoint. He got off and moved on to Korvosa when her heard that the King had died, easy money to be made stealing during all that chaos. His apprehension by the House Arkona while he was burglarizing one of their holdings was his greatest embarrassment to date. He would very much like to get out of their dungeon alive.

Uriah Lewis, personality and motivations:
Uriah is a mercenary and a coward. He knows his strengths and he likes to never be seen, if he does have to resort to combat, he prefers to stay at ranged using his Tien Chi crossbow he named "Heartseeker". His primary motivation now is getting free of the dungeon, long term his is after fame and fortune, unless someone changes his mind.

Uriah isn't a "good guy" type but more of a selfish rogue. However, he remembers his upbringing as a street waif and if the party works to make Korvosa better, he would follow along. Especially if it meant he could get his sticky fingers on some of those crown jewels...

In the process of updating Edmund to 8th level. Should finish tomorrow.


Here is Tirion's submission.

May I present Aerieth Deventis. She was in another CoT campaign, which eventually had the posting drop to the point where I had no clue what was happening or what her personality was. (In the first 200 days of this year, there were just under 200 posts, total.) I withdrew from the campaign as it had become more work trying to figure out what was happening when a new post would appear every week or two.

Aerieth is currently Rogue 2/Wizard(Air Elementalist) 3 -- most likely when I level her to level 8, she would be Rogue 3/Wizard 5. Then my intention is to go straight Arcane Trickster thereafter. If the party is level 7, then she would be Wizard 5/Rogue 2.

As an air elementalist, she is lacking some of the nice earth spells like Glitterdust, but has lots of fun spells, both buffing and attack spells. Eventually, her sneak attack will make her very effective for fighting and will also boost her attack spells.

As far as her background goes, Aerieth had a bit of a habit when young to borrow items from others, and forget to return them. Her parents had influence and her, indiscretions, were generally overlooked. However, one day her parents were ambushed in eastern Cheliax. After this, the people of her small elvish village became less willing to overlook her borrowing of items. Eventually, she was told by the elders of her elvish community that she could no longer live there. She ended up in Westcrown where she was recruited by the rebels.

I played through most of the second book in the AP with her. Never played the 1st or other CoT books.


Ok.. my vote is for Aerieth and Edmund... I just like their stories! :) Not that the other submission was not good.. I just like those two the most.

But mine is not the only decision! :)


Edmund is updated. I tweaked his backstory to fit Crimson Throne.


Hey Edmund - how did you escape from Rappan Athuk? I played the party's frog . . , er, grippli.

Will try to get Aerieth updated to level 8 this evening.

He opened one more random door in that place and it activated a portal into an alternate reality which he fell through and ended up here. The portal had no purpose, like almost everything else in that dungeon, but hey, it came in handy!

As an aside, I thought I'd point out that this is a Curse of the Crimson Throne game you're applying to. Everything in your application suggests Council of Thieves...


Lol - yeh, I just noticed that this morning. Although, all things considered the background and location for the two are not that disparate. I always mix up CoT and CoCT.

In the CoCT, I have sort of played parts of the 3rd and 4th books. Not sure how much I know as that campaign seemed to really have cut things and is currently running at a very slow snails pace.

Qadira

Megan seems pretty popular around here. Is there more space in any of her games. I have always wanted to play curse.


Hmmm... two more applicants - Uriah & Cardboard...

We have three players, most AP's are designed for 4.. but we're going with 5. I'm not sure if Megan would want 6. I'll ask... she may not care.

For now Recruitment is closed while we consider our applicants.

Cardboard.. you need to post or update your profile so we have a character to consider! Thank you all!

Qadira

Certainly. I spent the day ill so I wasn't really on here all that much. From what I am seeing we're good on melee and there's already a rogue. I'm thinking bard, but I might go for something else entirely. I had a character built for this AP, trying to find it.

I'm going to have my character up later this morning (it's 4 AM here now, need to get a bit of rest before work, but I will finish it there).


Are you allowing Craft feats? Trying to figure what to do with my 5th level wizard feat. Meta-magic or crafting. None of the low level arcane discoveries really excite me and I do not see Aerieth as a Spell Mastery type.


Yes, we are allowing any and all published Pathfinder Source Material.. but no third party as far as I know.

Osirion

Building a bard called Mordecai. Styles himself as "The Spell Sword". I'm working out the fluff as I go. So far he's big on skills and I kind of want him to be support/melee. Not sure how that will work out.


I'd be interested, if recruitment were reopened. I've a hankering to play a wizard, but I'm sure I'd be happy playing a roguish type too.


Thank you ALL for your interest...!!!

Aerieth Deventis [female, elf; Rogue 3 / Wizard <Air Elementalist> 5] and Edmund Gwenn [male, human; Sorcerer {Sage} ] are our new players!


Well we're here again.. we lost two players due to time constraints.. so we have two character slots open ...AGAIN!

Anything will do.. we are short now on fighting, divine and thieving.

So if there is any interest.. we have openings.


Definitely interested! In the mix for Canadian thanksgiving right now. But I will get something up!


This is Cardboard Tube Knight I'd like to try again with the character I am posting on here. I started building her last night for a game I really wanted to play in, but that fell through.

I will get her sheet posted in a while. I will build her as level 8.


Dotting for interest. I'm thinking a cleric of Pharasma could be useful for your party. I'll work on the crunch and backstory, then get back to you.

EDIT: Let's go with Pharasma instead.


Look good folks thanks for the rapidness of response. I'll leave it to Megan to plot how to get you all in.


Here is Astrids partially finished sheet.

Sheet Link

The short write up of her is that she's a Dwarven Exile who was cast out because her father and mother were thought to be in league with fiendish elements in an attempt to bring themselves fortune.


Aestereal Here! Lucia Selito is interested in filling the holy magic and combat problems in the party. She's an inquisitor of Pharasma who's been hunting a certain necromancer for over a year. Now that she's seen him brought to justice, she's searching for those who did the deed.

As a note, I've read through the first three books of Curse of the Crimson Throne. I can keep character knowledge and player knowledge separate, but if that's an issue, I understand completely.

Thanks for your consideration,

Aestereal (aka Lucia Selito)


@ Aestereal - Yes, Vreeg was slain by Ashe and his Master Ryloth was captured alive and turned over to Field Marshal who quickly had him executed along with Devargo Bravasi...who was Also cpatured alive by Ashe turned over to the authorities and Ecacuted as well - much to the party's dismay at the time... Ashe insists on allowing the 'rule of Law' to punish defeated villains as opposed to meteing out vigilante justice! Ashe supports the legal authority.. even the Queen until it was clear she was hopelessly under the influence of something dark and sinister.

Ashe prevented the execution of the false Trinia - Sophia... removed her feeblemind and confronted the Queen as the Masked Viglante The GREY EAGLE... during the mock execution to expose her devious wrong doing... and promptly escaped by jumping off the Grand Mastaba to a 180'ft fall to safety... taunting the Queen's wickedness all the way! Ashe spirited Trinia - whom he has fallen deeply in love with and Sophia out of Korvosa to safety.

Then a few days latter as a loyal knight of the court.. Ashe had an audience with the Queen.. arm in arm they walked the throne room as he made a personal report on some of the discoveries the party of adventuers - now called "The JUSTICARS" {and currently effectively headed by Ashe} she had hired and placed him as a courtly liaison with had accomplished. A deadly dance of hidden words.. but Ashe walked out of the throne room with the Queen not knowing the full knowledge of the party.. but himself convinced Illeosa knew of all the evil deeds of the physicians, Dr. Duvalus {Red Mantis - Field Driector for Korvosa} and Lady Andasian of the church of URGATHOA, even though he could detect no evil upon the Queen or her companion Grandmistrees of the Grey Maidens - Lady Sabina Merrin.

Now the JUSTICAR'S have discovered in their quest for Vencarlo .. that the High House Arkona is hopelessly overrun with Rakshasas and now travel into the Vivified Labryinth to seek likely both Neolandis and Vencarlo!

@ Astrid - A good rogue will be invaluable...

@ Both - Perhaps Aestereal, has been sent by Bishop Debear... whom Ashe is quite well acquainted with and has consulted on MANY occasions...
* When Trinia professed her innocence Ashe convinced the party to secret her and take her to the Fortress of PHARASMA to be questioned under truth spell cast by the Bishop personally to determine the truth of her declarations.
* When Markus Thasilionus Endrin.. Ashe's uncle was murdered in his ill-advised assassination attempot on Queen Illeosa.. Ashe secured his body and quickly fled with his uncle's corpse to the Fortress of PHRARASMA where he applied a Unguent of Timelessness taken from the Necromancer Ryloth's own resources to preserve the corpse of his uncle for a year's time..until the crisis with the Queen is resolved. Even now Lord Endrin's body lies undefiled in the PHARASMAN Fortress in-state awaiting his eventual Raising from the dead... hopefully {if Ashe has anything to say about it at least!}
* When the boxes of the Blood Veil plague were discovered.. it was to the Temple of PHRASMA and to consult directly with the Bishop that Ashe urged the party to perform the first case of pure silver infected coins was brought there and it was the PHARASMAN clergy that was wanred first of the sinister plot to spread plague in Korvosa!
* It was in the Temple of PHRARASMA that Ashe concocted personally the vaccine and the n the eventual cure for the Blood Veil plague.

Honestly.. not a exaggeration.. Ashe {my character} did ALL these things.. in-game. The party of course assisted but it was Ashe that pushed and corralled them into these deeds. Not a small task as most of the party have been neutral and not good for some time!

Maybe the Bishop decided it was time the Church of the PHARASMA took a more direct hand and sent Aestereal with a hired sneak.. Astird to infiltrate the now quarantined Old Korvosa to seek out the JUSTICARS to provide whatever assistance they could.

True to the JUSTICAR's direct approach.. following their trail of slain evil is not hard.. as Velkcarlo's house smoulders but is not burned ..but three Red Mantis still lie slain in its living room. The 'Self-styled' Emperor of Korvosa, Pilt's Swastel, still sits his throne IMPALED through the heart... where Ashe left him in his execution for his crimes against the innocent of Korvosa in their time of distress.. not to mention his despoliation and the blatant spectacal he made of the murder and defilement of young women he savaged in his debouched vile Theatre of the Macabre and perverse - Exemplary Excribles, a violated temple of ARODEN no less!!! Ashge took great joy in ending him! But the trail leads on to Arkona palace where the bodies of several unhuman beasts lie in that audacious halls of the Arkona estate .. corpses of Rakshasas! I'm sure Lord Arkona - Golario Arkona will gleefully show you where the JUSTICARS went.. should their trail of slain fiends in the bu-dour and private garden not be obviously evident! :)


@ Asherick
Alright, I'll work up a backstory that incorporates this stuff. I've been browsing the gameplay thread, like I said, and it looks like a fun group with some cool dynamics.

EDIT: Given that Lamm has been a non-issue for about 2 1/2 books at this point, do you still want us to take campaign traits?


This game has indeed had some history. There are no original characters for the start of the game still with it. Ashe didn't join the game until page 13 and Lamm had been done and dealt with.

I assume if you want to take a campaign trait.. Megan would not object. But I didn't.


So when does this party begin?


If you two are ready to enter the game we can close recruitment and drop you into play right now if you like. If you start reading from page 117 onward... that details the assault on the Arkona palace to get you up to speed.

There is one player who is new who we are going to encounter in the Vivified Labyrinth... so we're trying to push ahead to get the full party together.


I need as few more items in my sheet put together. But I will start reading the thread now.


Crunch-wise, I'm pretty much ready. I'll need to spend maybe an hour this morning developing a solid idea of her personality and have to finish deciding what random mundane items I'll need, but I can be posting in the next 24 hours.


Words no longer make sense and I require sleep. I'll be on in a few hours.


Alright, the crunch is ready, the backstory is ready, and I've got a rough idea of Lucia's personality. I've reread 117 onward, and I'm ready to play.


Astrid is read up! I think I might have bought some of the wrong items. Making some last minute changes.


Okay, I feel like I can take a hit now. I was rocking a 18 AC and that just wasn't going to do for a game like the one I was reading. So I bumped that up to 24.

Ready. Ready.
