The Great Chronicles of Sandpoint - A Rise of the Runelords Campaign (Inactive)

Game Master Tierce

Something is amiss in Sandpoint. Will this unsung band of heroes bound together and defeat the great evil?

Hey guys, please post here when you have a chance to check in. I will be posting up the gameplay thread by Monday, so in the mean time, collect yourselves and intertwine any of your back stories together. The tavern IC thread will be used as a basis for your first intros.

Checking in


Welcome welcome! Just a few points, this campaign follows the fast XP route, so levels will be flying at you quicker then normal.

However, I won't be giving out XP as we will be doing event based leveling.

Combat will be as follows, I will take the average of all the players initiative and all the enemies initiative and I will roll both. If it's the players turn, any of you can commence your turn during that time. Once all six of you have posted, all the enemies will go and then so on.

I will try to post at least once a day, but this is a laid back campaign, we will be playing it for awhile, so no rush. Is there anything you expect of me over the next 15 levels?


F Gnome Bard/1

Hey, cool! Thanks for letting Olly join the fun. :)

How much of what happened in the recruitment RP thread is "in canon," so to speak? I'm thinking particularly of the conversations Zella and Olly had about teaming up to perform, and the interplay between Zella and Darius -- can we assume those conversations happened, in terms of figuring out backstory links?

Also, if anyone has thoughts about which spells it'll make the most sense for Olly to have, I'm open to suggestions. I have a tentative list in the profile, but since whatever I pick now, we're stuck with for a while, I'm happy to tweak while I can. :)


Everything that occurred in the tavern will be considered part of the canon. Even the trial of Brixa for attacking the Goblin Pathfinder


Female Human (Varisian) Rogue / 1

Checking in. Glad to know our previous actions won't be wiped clean. Olly and Zella have an act to put together and zella's got a man to keep her eye on. :)

For Olly's spells, Grease is usually fun.

ha, just realized we have three female characters and three male. Some romances and love triangles can develop!


Female Human (Varisian) Rogue / 1

Yep, you.

I will avoid a triangle with Noro, she might hurt me. :)


F Gnome Bard/1

Lessee... two half-elves, two humans, an elf, and a gnome. Somehow I'm not sure Olly's going to be in any of these triangles. :)

Now, she might do her best to help *other* people get into them... :)


Olly already has an admirer, Flit!

Glad I get to be a part!

As my tables resident bard man, I definately have some thoughts for you if you'd like them! Cure Light Wounds will be great down the track a bit (perhaps swap out a spell at level 4) but I dont think you'll need it just now. Great first level spells are grease, hideous laughter, sleep and silent image. Barring sleep, you'll probably use them throughout your entire career.If you're worried about enemies making their saving throws Cause Fear will apply a -2 penalty even on a successful save!

I'd replace Charm with Hideous Laughter to get the most bang for your buck from your trait. It effects the same targets but I find it a lot better than charm in the long run (ferinstance, no -5 penalty in combat). The rest is a matter of taste, but dont worry too much about the healing. You can easily take cure light next level or beyond.

It's getting late down here, but I'll be checking in throughout the weekend, maybe fleshing out my backstory and making a few minor changes, and I'm also still up in the air about a few build choices myself, particularly my feat and ability scores. Also as it stands, Seldon doesn't have armour for the festival. If people would feel safer with me kitted out properly, I'm willing to compromise, but I want to challenge myself and go in... well... balls deep, for want of a better term. :P

GM:
Well at least there isn't a naive cleric to get in the way this time.

Looking forward to working with you all. *Bows with respect*


Female Human (Varisian) Rogue / 1

Don't worry Seldon, Zella won't be wearing her armor either during the festival, she'll be wearing her dancing costume and it doesn't offer a lot of protection.

Zella gets to enlist Olly's help for her amorous adventures? :)


Still waiting on Noro to check in, then I will be posting up the rest of the situations from the bar and allow you guys to resolve your Tavern shenanigans.

On Monday I will post up the first post of the festival


F Gnome Bard/1

Seldon, thanks for the suggestions! Much appreciated.

Olly has armor with her wherever she's staying, but she wouldn't be wearing it while performing. She probably would carry the shortsword with her just for safety's sake while in the crowded city, but she wouldn't have the crossbow on her. So hopefully we'll have a chance to retrieve things before we get into too many fights... :)

A gnome with a goblin admirer... oh, what could possibly go wrong there? :)

And what kind of bard would Olly be if she didn't help out with amorous adventures? :)

I just realized that, save for Noro, we all have some sort of perform skill. If Adventuring fails, we could always form a band of travelling performers, with Noro as head of security.


didn't realize Karas Milar hasn't checked in yet. Still waiting on him

Noro can craft Tattoos though so if you need somme branding that could be done.

Hello all,

And may I saw wow, I did not see this coming. Very happy to be part of this group.

As for the troupe, give it some time and my eidolon can perform acrobatic acts.


F Gnome Bard/1

Sandpoint Theater, here we come!

...or at least the street corners outside...


Female Human (Varisian) Rogue / 1

Saying we're going to hang out on the street corners might give the wrong idea. ;)


Probably would, even in Golarion

want to respond to that post under another alias so badly but better not. Absalom is so far away


If you do, Lady Natalia will suddenly emerge at the same time, and that's not something a bunch of good green adventures would want.

I started going through the posted background of each of us.

Noro is the only one born and raised in Sandpoint. Zell is second as she has travelled to Sandpoint on occasion but, until recently, never really settled here.

In trying to establish some story cohesion (such as a way to bind us together as a party the best.) I think there would be a chance that Noro and Zell may have a small connection. (maybe not close friends but a passing aquaintenance at the least.)

Noro's brother works as a cook in the Rusty Dragon and it is no secret that he has a crush on Amieko (story for him to be used for a Jade Regent game).

anyway any thoughts on this or should we just let things role-play out.

BTW I must remember to stay clear of Seldon's Pack he flings that thig around almost as well as Noro throws her fists around. (still feeling the slam to the gut from the other thread)


Female Human (Varisian) Rogue / 1

Maybe Zella chased after your brother during a previous visit, but gave up on him when she realized how obsessed he was with Ameiko? More than likely you noticed her failed attempts to get his attention. Maybe you were even the one to tell her that he was interested in someone else.


Male Half-Elf Summoner (Wild Caller) 1

As far as I can see Karas might be drawn to Darius because they both have mixed blood and that pull will only become stronger when Karas realises Dariius if from Magnimar, the place his largely unknown Half-Elven father comes from.

Noro would be someone he'd feel connected to at first but that will only last for a short while as he despises alcohol. But beyond the booze she'll probably remind him of Shoanti women with her tomboy-ish manners.

Both Zella and Olly will be intriguing to him, Olly more than Zella. Simply put, he hadn't seen a single Gnome in his life until his recent visit to Magnimar and is still rather intrigued by them. (Good) Performers have high standing among the Shoanti, assuming they don't otherwise ruin said standing, and Karas will respect that.

Seldon will most likely be a complicated thing for him. He is not stranger to Elves spending most of his life in an area bordering Elven grounds but the recent discovery he actually has Elven blood is still weird to him and he wonders what it means.

I just hope that your characters don't freakout when they find out about his father. As for Magnimar, Darius has never actually been there. He's kind of made it a point to avoid going there, since you know his father was killed there.

I really don't know how common knowledge about Drow actually is. I mean outide elf lands.

Sandpoint never truly had drow problems as far as I can tell from what is published. so I am expecting that to Noro a Drow is just another elf like Shoanti and Tien are just another type of human.

I can also see Karas acting as an AA rep with Noro which will be alot of fun to portray.


And of course the GM will try to ignore the fact that your a half elf drow with dual swords. At least they're not scimitars.

You just lucky I loved your back story so much, not a fan of the "darkness" elves

You forgot brooding, mildly self-loathing, and no spell-like abilities. Besides, the whole scimitar thing is way overdone with the introduction of the Magus.


F Gnome Bard/1

Olly, being from Kaer Maga, isn't likely to be weirded out by anyone in this group. She's seen stranger. :) She'll probably just pump you for stories.

In the initial tavern discussion, I set it up that Olly's been in town about a month. She's made no headway in making it to the theater, and has been doing what's effectively "open mike night" to try to get someone's attention. So there are certainly opportunities for her to have run into Seldon or Karas (who are the two I don't think she actually encountered in the tavern; she didn't talk to Noro but certainly noticed her!).


Female Human (Varisian) Rogue / 1

Brooding and self-loathing? Obviously you need cheered up by a free spirited varisian rogue.

Noro, what was your brother's name, got to keep track of who I've been rejected by. :)

Maybe Karas and Seldon and catch Olly's and Zell's morning performance?

I was making reference to That-Drow-with-the-two-scimitars-in-those-books. Sorry if it came across that way. Darius is a bit of a flirt and has a tendency to show off for the ladies from time to time. Except for Zelladania for some reason.

His name is Lou.

I had him built as a Monk(Drunken master)


Female Human (Varisian) Rogue / 1

K, Zell's bound to ask you how he is doing at some point.

Glad Darius isn't a copycat of that other drow fella, he got on nerves after a while so I took a liking to his nemesis with the dagger. :)


Artemis Entreri was pretty cool, but didn't he fight with a sword and dagger?

Yep. And to be honest, That-Drow wasn't even in my mind when I re-wrote Darius from this version.

Gm:
I still have hope that Epiphany will re-emerge from the depths.


Darius:
One day, but most of the players that we had are gone, like Jacob, so we may need to re-recruit

getting anxious and ready to start.

I believe that with the week (in game time) that we had we would have the chance to get to know each other a bit (time between the other thread and the actual festival).

I can say that Noro (during that week) would be attempting to take some sword fighting lessons from Darius. possibly for reasons not necessarily associated with actually wanting to learn how to use a two-bladed sword.

Noro is definately the Tom-boy type and likes to "be one of the boys" I hope to be able to play that out a bit. she is NOT a refined lady, if at anytime during the game we need some diplomacy I would suggest the Noro NOT be the spokesman, we may end up either in prison or at war.


Morning! Hope everyone had a good weekend. The gameplay thread will be up within the next hour or so. So stay tuned


gameplay thread is up! Go Have fun!


neat, just realized that Zelladania's character Lorelei is in Skull and Shackles with me

Smelly goblin pirate to the rescue!!!

and apparently we are in Hairy's Kingmaker together too... wow


Female Human (Varisian) Rogue / 1

I get around. :)

Also I can't roll for s!@& in the Kingmaker game.

And for the pirate game, your new nickname shall be: "Ankle-biter." I am also considering casting Prestidigitation on you. :P


I should have bite that chicks ankle off! It's not everyday that you crit with a bite attack

Also, if anyone is interested in playing a Golarion mobster, check out Voice's campaign. Just post in the recruitment forum or message Voice

The Blood Knives

Currently we are looking for one person, preferably a front liner. This is a CN or evilish campaign.
