Una would be so like "Told you so."


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.


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!
