Tales from the City of Opal

Game Master Patrick Curtin

This is my homebrew world Arcaia. This particular setting is the free city of Opal, a lush equatorial city set on the edge of an immense jungle rife with undead , ancient civilizations, and dinosaurs.

Awesome. Thx Pat! That gives me something to work with.
:D
<chortles sinisterly to self>

;)


Hey Pat, how does this grab you?
(Still pretty basic, but it should give you something to work with) :)

The Couatl's Wing (Or perhaps 'The Couatl's Fang')?

Spoiler:

Usually identified with a spiral of Green on a field of Azure (Blue)
(Formerly the spiral was a detailed representation of a winged serpent, now simplified through the ages to it's current, simple, state)

More famous for it's legendary history than anything it has done recently. This now small school still manages to hang onto a portion of it's former glory. It primarily focuses on the blending of spell and weapons, attracting an eclectic blend of Magus, Rangers, Priests, Paladins, Eldritch Knights, Bards, and Mages with more brawn than sense.

Being a member brings either a sense of awe, or a grudging respect, depending upon whom you are talking to. It is still considered an exclusive circle by the general populace. Although in truth this is due to a lack of applicants rather than a difficult admissions policy.

There you go. Unless you ixnay a major portion of it, that's the basic of what I'm running with for the background.

HAve you posted anywhere (website, or something) the basic layout of your world? General map, major deities, etc? Just curious to learn more about this land I find myself in! :)

Thanks!

Deities are Mayan, Incan from what I grasp. Early on in this thread there's a link from Flash and some stuff by Pat that give a glimpse into the deities, and the flavor is definitely South American.

I need to get some of my notes Googled Doc-ed. Your 'Couatl's Wing' sounds good.

I'll work on formatting the docs. Also, there is a bunch of discussion in the earlier parts of this thread

Yup. The Xoltec Empire which fell is based in part on the bloodier aspects of the Aztec civilization. Many deities are 'fusions' of the old and new, as often happened IRL when two cultures intermingled. Cayden Cailean and the Aztec god of alcohol have merged to the point where CC is usually refered to as 'Two Rabbit' often as not.


Cool. So take a Pathfinder deity, add with Xoltec, and whammo! I like it!

(Personally, I have always had a soft spot for the couatl. At average size large they take on fully grown Huge and larger dragons, and magical to boot! What's not to love?!?) ;P


Elf Magus 5

And here he is, actually almost completely done! ;P


AW man, FINALLY got 5 minutes to do a little research on the Magus, and now I'm REALLY excited! I have a solid concept with this guy, but seriously looking at the 'Dervish Build'.

Naw, I'm good this for now. (I am doing a little tweaking) I may switch from spellblade back to regular magus though, the spell blade is cool, but The regular magus gets a 'free' extra attack with his primary weapon every time he uses spell combat. 8S

Grrr. I have SUCH a Love/Hate relationships with options! ;P

Apologies for my silences. I rarely have time to sit at a real computer there days it seems. I will endeavor to get this wrapped up. If someone wants to assume they know Guy's character as an acquaintence, it might help the introduction along a bit =)


S'all good Pat. Just glad to see the monkey! :)

I hope everyone is having a good (hopefully long) holiday weekend!


I meant to post this earlier, but real life got in my way.

I would of loved to resurrect TenFoot Twin Eater and bring him along on the adventure, but I think with one 10 month old and another due in May, my posting would of been very erratic. I did not want to be the person you were always waiting on to post.

For those of you playing, you are in for a real treat.

In regard to getting the other two into the group, Citlali has both a feat and a trait that leads to prophetic dreams so I can easily point them both out as needing to be a part of this in order to be successful.

I have no doubt! That's why I'm here, I know it's gonna be worth the wait! :)

(But it's always nice to have someone else say I'm right!) :D

That Works for me Citali, but 'Magnus' isn't exactly shy. I was thinking of just having him walk up and introduce himself! :)

I like that idea. The first time I played Kessel he was an easy fit into the AoW campaign, most of the other PCs knew him and his sister from their youth, but sadly that campaign died on us players when the GM went AWOL. The second time I played Kessel he was sort of shoehorned into the story by the DM. In that one the players stopped posting :(

For this this attempt I'd like to get back to Kessel's roots and have the players work him into the campaign. I'm a bit surprised though that with 3 classes, rogue is the only class he shares with the other 5 PCs


Well, between Citali's prophetic visions, and Magnus' desire to have his praises sung, I don't think Kessel will have a problem being introduced! ;)

I kind of like the idea that Vilya 'looks familiar' to Magnus. Eventually he'll recall why,... :o

Yeah... I left him bleeding and penniless in a back alley near the docks a couple years back. Or was that that other guy... I can never keep them straight, there's so many of them.

Always good to see you ADMaE! Your life is very hectic, but Ten will always ahve a spot if you can find some time after the chaos subsides. I am being erratic myself with my life going crazy as well.

Everyone: I am on an actual comp and trying to update. Please bear with! =D

Hey! Magnus isn't going to take being 'just another one' very well. He's FAR too egotistical for that! ;)

Being 'That devilishly handsome one' she left bleeding and penniless, that he can deal with. :D

Yay! PAt has a real PC!

(Hey,... I want a real PC!) :P

All - once again, I am heading off to Italy for business, leaving tomorrow and returning on the 4th. Please DMPC San as needed.


Happy/Safe journeys! :)


BTW, MArdi Gras weekend here, which you'd THINK would mean I'd have time on my hands, but as the family is all out of school too, means usually,... No. I don't ;P

So in short, might not get to post much until Ash Wednesday. But I'll try to keep up.

HAppy Mardi Gras! :D

Qadira

Male Human Ranger

Happy Mardi Gras indeed!!
I'm in south Mississippi at the moment, you do the Gras in New Orleans or Mobile?


Heh. I haven't done the Gras in the Big Sleazy since katrina.

:)
I now live in Lafayette, LA. We have our own parades, pretty much ALL family friendly, (can't say that about half of the N.O. parades) Only 2 hours from N.O., so any family wants to see us can come HERE for Mardi Gras! :)


Male Elf Paladin/Ranger 4/1

Awesome. Just drove through there Thursday morning at about midnightish.

If I happen to be back around that way anytime soon, I'll drop you a message, maybe we could grab a bite and a brew somewhere.


Sounds good!
Just drop me a line.
:)


BTW, I'm getting hammered at work. Again. I'll try to keep up with all my threads as best I can, but I will be pretty sparse the next couple of days until I get this next musical up and running.

Thanks, see you all soon!


Male Elf Paladin/Ranger 4/1

My out of character part if my last post sounds like I'm giving you permission to do what you want with your game, which you obviously don't need. Not my intention, I chalk it up to 8 hrs of sleep over the last three days and boozing at the bar across the street from my hotel while I posted.
My sincere apologies for my audacity.
:)

Once again, I will be out of town on business, beginning Saturday afternoon. I'll be back the following Saturday. This time it's to Shanghai and then to Seoul (a new city for me, for a change). Feel free to DMPC me to keep the action moving.


Wow. I want to travel to interesting places like that!

I hope you at least get to do a little sight-seeing on these trips?

Safe travels!

Qadira

Not much, unfortunately. I'll be spending most of my time training others in a conference room. But thanks for the well wishes!


Any time! :D

Sorry for my absence, Spent Mothers day loading in and yesterday all day rigging two fly systems (We're doing Aladdin Jr) I'll be busy this week, but I'll try to keep up.

Qadira

Well, this game is slow, so no worries

DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Hey guys. I am going to be relatively busy this center part of the week, plus I am taking a bit of a mental sanity break from the boards due to some disappointments elsewhere on the forums. Feel free to keep interacting and I will post up soon(ish)


I just got the chance to go and visit my Mom in OK this week. (Trying to time the visit before her next Chemo, when she won't feel like having company) So, I will be out of town most if not all week.

I should have access to Inete, what I probably won't have is much time. But I will try to check in as often as possible.

Sorry for any inconvenience. Thank you for understanding!

See you all back soon, and Happy 4th! :)

Qadira

DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

No problem Rags, best of luck

Guys I just want to apologize. A combination of different things (family, house, work, PaizoCon) has made my life difficult. I will try and find some time to update soon, please bear with.


NO worries,

ANd I'm back! :)
(Physically at least. mentally, give me another week!) :)

I'll catch up asap!

So the latest Wayfinder is out and there's a Fili prestige class in it and I'd like to convert Kessel so that if he should ever make it to level 7 he can qualify for it.

Qadira

DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Guy I read that, kudos, and of course feel free to modify as you see fit.

I am back. I apologize for the long delays, but it's been a busy couple of weeks. I am dedicated to getting this mug rolling again!


Yay! The monkey is back! ;)

Qadira

DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Apologies once again, everyone. This weekend I lost my dog to a stroke. I haven't been all together this week, and I also had a nurse quit on me.

The good news is the nurse quitting means I will likely be chained to the house for the next few days (after work). I will be endeavoring to update at that point.


Again, condolences and well-wishes. Hope to see you soon.
:)

All, once again I will be making my way to Italy tomorrow. I will be there, without internet (because I'm too cheap to pay around $20/day), until August 7th. Please feel free to DMPC San to move the story along in my absence.

Andoran

Human substitute Redneck 2 / Intellectual 2

Apologies for being absent for several days--I was in the process of moving, and was without computer or internet access. I would have let you guys know beforehand, but I didn't see it coming myself. I should be good now.

Andoran

Human substitute Redneck 2 / Intellectual 2

Looks like I spoke too soon. Things are going remarkably pear-shaped right now. If you don't mind, I'm going to need you to GMPC Vilya for a few days, at least until things get sorted out.

Qadira

DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

You got it Shiny


BTW all, I'm heading to New Orleans for the weekend, gonna attend Mechacon and play some games! :)

Unfortunately this means I will not have internet access till Sunday at the earliest. And I'll probably be too tired to even think about catching up till Monday. :)

Sorry for the inconvenience. But this my only (ok, sometimes one of two) fun weekends I get a year! (Not counting the usual Family escapes) ;P

Thanks, Have a nice Weekend! :D

Hey all. I'm putting this up in case any of my regular players are interested in a new game. It's going to be a gritty Post-apocalypse game set a decade after a world-shattering event (I'm leaning towards a worldwide EMP). I am going to be using Modern D20 rules (for now, until a decent Post-apoc set comes up), but a lot of that stuff is online >Here<.

The game will center around a group setting out from a survival community that wants to get more information about the outside world now that the Grim Years seem to be over.

Would this be anything like a certain Appalachee Jihad campaign? Because if it is I already have a sweet loveable little hunter type that you could pop into an unsuspecting group.

Appalachee Jihad, eh? I think I've got a character hanging around from that one, too...
