Textile House | Mc Annaly's Pub

Welcome one and all!

If you haven't already, could you please create an alias. Also could you please put the following in your tagline:

HP, AC, Saves, Perception, and Initiative

You can add this to race & class fields. I tend to use the following format spread across two lines:

Init HP xx AC Touch Flat footed | CMD | fort +x ref +y will +z | Resource Tracker Spreadsheet -- NB this is optional

Skills:
Your skills


Textile House | Mc Annaly's Pub

Later today when the kids are in bed I'll post the prologues. Initially none of you know each other and the first order of business is to bring you all to Phlan and the party together. One thing you should know as players that your characters don't is that even though none of you can remember having met you all seem somehow familiar, experiencing something that could best be described as deja vu upon meeting. You have an odd affinity for each other that nobody can explain. That should help the party form and it may become significant later on in the follow on module.

For now can you please post here once you are ready to start.


Thank you for picking me! I'll put together Kardas's profile later today so that he's ready to go.

I had to seriously compact my skills to get them into a spoiler on the Class line, just FYI. If you are only looking for certain skills, let me know, and I can make them more legible.

Oh my goodness you have so many :) I'd suggest putting just the important ones you might use in combat.

Apologies all for the late and short post. I have tomorrow off and will do better. I just didnt want to hold the game up...


Textile House | Mc Annaly's Pub

So this is the first time I've tried the Prologue approach to bringing a party together. It's actually way more work than I'd anticipated so I'll be glad once it's done :) I really don't know how Storyteller manages to do it for all those tables!

Anyway I hope this provides a more organic start to things rather than the typical, hey we all know each other we go way back but uh what was your name again thing... Obviously the die are heavily stacked for you to actually meet and then there's the weird familiarity you all have for each other but that's a story for another day. One I hope to share with you :)

I secretly think that Storyteller has an assistant...lol.

Agreed, it's more work but it does give the game a different feel to be sure. I like what you've done thus far! ;-)

I tried to keep the prologue going and flowing, so I kept the 'talk' brief. Feel free to converse more with Kardas however, Ishta! I figured it was best to not clutter up the thread and slow down play while hopefully giving you an idea of who Kardas is :3


Textile House | Mc Annaly's Pub

Hopefully the party will be coming together about now I'll let you RP that :)

I haven't been able to find a good map of Phlan, this is the best I've been able to get, I think we can make do :) There are a few places not marked on there of note:

* The Market
* The Bitterblade inn
* The current temporary Town Hall

When I get a moment I'll edit those in.

Ser Armithia is right you'll need to get a charter from the council. That requires two things, a nominal fee as well as a name and roster for your adventuring band :)

Name ideas, gang? (That's a question, not a suggestion to be the "Name Ideas Gang" by the way.)

(Phlan Improvement Gang doesn't work because of the unfortunate acronym, so that's also out.)

I think you guys are speaking my language. Anything with Dawn in it will probably satiate Zane. Unless it's 'Dawn Sucks', for example, which would not please Zane.

Um... Flan in Spain (and I think in Mexico) is a kind of pudding, so anything with Phlan in the name would sound funny to me xD

But then again I can't come out with anything, other than 'Tears of X' or similar things.

Tears of the Moonsea, maybe?

I want to apologize for my posts. I am not quite sure how to play him. I have never played a paly; and I never play elves, so this is totally foreign. Please bare with me.

Besides, we are not Pathfinders, so we would get sued.

Paladin shoots down the Murderhobo idea... as always. :)

Dawn Order Of the Moonsea = DOOM (LLC of course) ??

Has room for an enlightened reading of hope *or* a snarky reading of kill everyone and take their stuff. Very open to interpretation. :)

.. one easy way of getting the 'charter company' feel is by investing some cash into an item of sorts (trinket, amulet, cape, whatever you have) that has a logo that accompanies the name :)

I like using "Company" in the name.

Dawn's Eye Company


Textile House | Mc Annaly's Pub

That's a pretty decent name IMO, however it's not my decision :)


Textile House | Mc Annaly's Pub

I'm generally not going to track small expenses like food or inn stays. While 2gp per night is expensive with luck you'll hopefully soon be quite wealthy.

A note on that, I will put in spoilers with a perception DC stuff you can easily find. That will be FAR from the only loot around, if you want to actively search for stuff you'll need to let me know, and depending on the situation the noise could attract wandering monsters.

An example: you might be in a library which is full of books, hundreds of them. One might be a forgotten spell book. You'll need to spend at least 10 minutes searching to find that.

Another example: you've been fighting in the rubble of a partially collapsed house. If you spend five minutes digging you might uncover some antique silverware worth hundreds, but a simple perception check would never find that.

When I was thinking about Dawn and Moonsea I was thinking of a military-like patch with a stylized half-sun rising over the Moonsea.

I honestly can't think of anything that incorporates what everyone wants, especially without going really long and sacrificing all attempts at a good acronym (which maybe only I cared about anyway)... so I think we're down to just voting...

Dawn's Redemption
Moonsea Company
Phlan Reclamation Associates?
Society for an Independent Phlan?
Zaskim Reclamation?
Order of the Dawn of Phlan?
Phlan Order of the Dawn
Dawn Sucks (Just kidding)
Tears of the Moonsea
Guardians of the New Dawn
Companionship/Company of the Moonsea?
New Dawn of the Moonsea?
Murderhobos Inc.
Murderhobos LLC?
Dawn Order Of the Moonsea
The Dawn Concourse?
The New Phlan Clique?
The Moonsea Circle?
The Dawn Company?
Wings of Protection
Dawn's Eye Company
The Watchful Company [edited in because it was just added to gameplay]

Any others to add before we start whittling it down? Any compromise type ideas?
