Guys, just a note. Please do your testing in this subforum, not the gameplay forum. Its bad form to have anything in there other than the actual gameplay.

For anyone that might want to weave some backgrounds together...

Nils was born and raised in Kintargo in the Redroof district (primarily the Devil's Nursery). He was brought up by his mother, who is a devote Asmodean, after his father cast them out. Over the years he's run with many of the gangs operating in the Nursery and surrounding area but never stuck with any specific one for too long. Of late he's joined the Crimson Thorns and has been taken under the wing of the groups leader Heimrick Glodflur who is also a member of the Rose of Kintargo. Attracted to the groups goals and mentality Nils has been freelancing for them in the hopes of gaining admittance.

If anyone might have crossed paths or run in similar circles let me know.

A note on Nil's appearance, he's not really that similar to the avatar pic (perhaps it's one of his disguises). You can get a description of his appearance in his profile.

(Edit) : Dak where in the city does the protest take place that we start at? Also how long after the Night of Ashes does it take place? (or is it before that)


HR | MM | RotRL1 | RotRL2 | SD | SS1 | SS2 | WftC_1 | WftC_2 |

Protest takes place in Jarvis End. It is a few days after the night of ashes. Keep in mind though I will do some prelude story leading up to the night of ashes and the protest. While these won’t be meant as start of the game, people can definitely describe what they are doing during these events, potentially giving more opportunity for party members to meet before the protest (actual start of game).

A tall, young Chelaxian lady casts a spell. Suddenly the eyes of the small white bunny poking out of her belt pouch turn from red to purple.

Hi all, I'm your new wizard.


HR | MM | RotRL1 | RotRL2 | SD | SS1 | SS2 | WftC_1 | WftC_2 |

Welcome Sorix! Prelude post coming shortly. I will post these once a day around this time for the next several days so official start of game will be the 28th with the protest mentioned in the players guide. Don't feel required to post to these, but you are more than welcome to if you like. These will be a great opportunity to meet others before the official start or just start working on getting in character.


HP 20/20 | AC 20 : T13 : FF17 | CMD : 17 | F:5 R:6 W:0 | Init +4 | Perp +5 (+6 vs Traps) | Darkness 1/1

Welcome aboard Sorix!

Nice prelude post Dak, looking forward to what's to come.


HP 17/17 | AC 16 | T 11 | FF 14 | CMD 12 | Fort +5 | Ref +2 | Will +7 | Init +4 | Perc +12 | Sense Motive +10 | Darkvision 60'

Welcome Sorix! Great to have you with us!


HR | MM | RotRL1 | RotRL2 | SD | SS1 | SS2 | WftC_1 | WftC_2 |

One thing I do need from everyone in the next day or two. Please answer the questions below:

1) Where/how are you living in Kintargo? (At a minimum what part of town, but the more details the better)
2) What do you do for a living?
3) Do you have any ties to the community, any locals you frequent, any groups you are/want to be a part of?
4) Do you have any family in Kintargo proper?

I know some of you have parts of this weaved into your backgrounds, but many do not so if you can post those details here it would be much appreciated.


HP 20/20 | AC 20 : T13 : FF17 | CMD : 17 | F:5 R:6 W:0 | Init +4 | Perp +5 (+6 vs Traps) | Darkness 1/1

I've included much of that info in my background but for ease of reference and a bit of expansion here it is. Feel free to modify the detail however you'd like :

1. Nils lives in the Devils Nursery where he rents a room over a seamstress shop (Thimble Fingers). His room has an external entrance as well as an entrance into the rest of the living space. The owner of the shop (and his land lady) is Uwe Grasbrook an older tiefling woman who has been around long enough to be well connected within the Nursery. The building itself is located fairly central to the Nursery (right about where the R7 is on the map). If you're ok with it I also like to think he as various bolt holes through out the Redroof district (nothing that would qualify as long term living spaces but more places to lay low for a few hours).

2. Nils is currently part of a gang known as the Crimson Thorns. They control an area of the Nursery a bit East of where Nil's lives which includes a couple of blocks. The gang's size varies but sits around 15 members or so and are lead by the half elf Heimrick Glodflur. Within their territory they run protection (which they actually provide) and outside they get involved in petty larceny and information brokering.

3. As mentioned above Nils is part of the Crimson Thorns. Additionally Heimrick is a member of the Rose of Kintargo and has started grooming Nils to eventually join (though he is not currently a member). Nils also has loose ties with the Cloven Hoof Society and helps them and the tiefling community at large when he can. Finally he's a former member of the Asmodean church, which he has come to despise, and still attends infrequently with his mother (so he might know some minor clergy there).

As far as places he frequents there's his mothers place north of the Nursery, the Crimson Thorns primary hang out (a run down and abandoned building in their territory), The Horned Maid (a tavern/brothel in the Nursery near a main road) and occasionally the Cloven Hoof Society.

4. Nils' mother Serina, whom he is close to, lives in a small two room apartment (somewhere fairly central in the large area East of T5). She works as a maid to one of the minor clerics of Asmodeus (Friedrick Humdrid). His estranged father, Adal Roth, is a fairly successful merchant who lives in the more affluent section of the Redroof district (near the Bleakbridge). He hasn't had anything to do with either Serina or Nils since he cast them out shortly after the tieflings birth.

As always if anyone would like to weave in feel free to do so.


HR | MM | RotRL1 | RotRL2 | SD | SS1 | SS2 | WftC_1 | WftC_2 |

Nils:
Just a suggestion, though either works, with your backstory and ties to Heimrick your tavern of choice could likely be the Thrashing Badger.


HP 20/20 | AC 20 : T13 : FF17 | CMD : 17 | F:5 R:6 W:0 | Init +4 | Perp +5 (+6 vs Traps) | Darkness 1/1

GM Dak:
Badger it is. Is there info about it anywhere or just consider it a standard tavern for now?


HR | MM | RotRL1 | RotRL2 | SD | SS1 | SS2 | WftC_1 | WftC_2 |

Nils:
Standard tavern, caters to sailors and laborers, but more importantly those with more rebellious intents like followers of Milani, could be a spot you would meet Heimrick and other similar associates at.


HR | MM | RotRL1 | RotRL2 | SD | SS1 | SS2 | WftC_1 | WftC_2 |

Everyone, please make sure you can move your tokens in Roll20. I added your names and HP in their for easy reference.

@GM the answers to your questions are in the following expanded backstory:

As an apprentice under the court wizards of Count Auxis Aulorian, Sorix has a small room on the estate. She works as a scribe for the wizards and as a tutor and nanny to the Aulorian children. In addition to room and board, she is provided a modest stipend for living expenses.

Sorix is a devout follower of Desna, which she keeps secret for obvious reasons. She has managed to network with other Desnan faithful in Kintargo, and they gather on the summer and winter solstices in secret to celebrate the Ritual of Stardust, and on the first day of autumn for a symbolic celebration of the Swallowtail Release. She was born into a secret cult of Desna in the hinterlands northeast of Kintargo near the border with Nidal. The cult's primary objective is to end Kuthite rule and bring down the Umbral Court, although they're certainly no fans of House Thrune, either.

Sorix enjoys walking through Lantana Park, especially on clear nights, where she'll sometimes dance beneath the stars while humming a hymn to Desna if she's reasonably certain nobody is observing her. She frequents Crissali’s Fine Tomes in Jarvis End and has made a few friendly acquaintances, who are students attending Alabaster Academy, in Long Roads Coffeehouse and the nearby Villegre Park. She also likes to visit the Tooth and Nail tavern, hoping to meet travelers and hear their stories, and aid them if she can. She's sympathetic to the Bellflower network and, while not an official member, will assist them when she can.

Sorix's family all still live Northeast of Kintargo near the border with Nidal.

First of all--newbie to PbP, please be patient. 2nd I am RP, please do not take offense personally.

Mawl is a little over average height and although well over average weight, it is obvious it is all lean muscle. He seems to frighten people with his gray/green eyes, particularly when he gets angry. He does some personal security for performance stars, visiting important people, and well-connected businessmen/women. He lives at the Villagre but most of his work is either on the bridge or in Jarvis' End.

He does whatever pleases the most important person in his life--himself. He doesn't think much of the future or other peoples' feelings. He has a burning hatred for the evil that overtook his hamlet near Nidal.


HP 20/20 | AC 20 : T13 : FF17 | CMD : 17 | F:5 R:6 W:0 | Init +4 | Perp +5 (+6 vs Traps) | Darkness 1/1

GM Dak:
Where's the Badger located? If it's outside the Redroof district I think I'll just add it in addition to the Horned Maid. The Maid would be a local hang out while the Badger would be where he often meets with people regarding jobs Heimrick tasks him with. If the Badger is in the Redroof area then I'll just replace the Maid.


HR | MM | RotRL1 | RotRL2 | SD | SS1 | SS2 | WftC_1 | WftC_2 |

Nils:
It is in Yolubilis Harbor district

It should work now.

1. Saniel has been keeping to the Jarvis End section of town since his arrival a few months ago. This was a matter more of convenience than anything else, as it was the closest area with affordable lodging that he could find. He is currently renting a cheap room at a boarding house near the docks area called Hammay's Hostel. The rent is cheap, and the rooms are cheaper, but its dry, normally warm, and quiet enough for his tastes. The location does provide a fairly nice view of Aria Park, so there are some upsides at least.

2. Since his arrival in Kintargo, Saniel has been working as a Harvester for the Bellflower Network. He was provided a contact in the city prior to his departure from Absalom and has been trying to help liberate those who desire freedom for the past month. There really isn't much pay to speak of, but there have been a few minor windfalls from those he has helped free which have kept him with enough coins in his pouch to not starve.

3. He obviously feels he is doing good work with the Bellflowers, but he hasn't been fully embraced into the network mainly because he appears human, and most of the crops he harvests are mostly distrustful of humans. He knows he doesn't really have a career in the anti-slavery crusade, but for him its a first step to truly making a difference. The rumors of the Silver Ravens have intrigued him, and the whispers of the Roses have also caught his ear.

4. No family for poor Saniel. Raised an orphan in a land far away, he is pretty much guaranteed not to bump into any relations in the Inner Sea region.


HP 17/17 | AC 16 | T 11 | FF 14 | CMD 12 | Fort +5 | Ref +2 | Will +7 | Init +4 | Perc +12 | Sense Motive +10 | Darkvision 60'

For the record, Saniel's reason to attend the protest is "To Protest the Government" from the selection in the Player's Guide.


HR | MM | RotRL1 | RotRL2 | SD | SS1 | SS2 | WftC_1 | WftC_2 |

Saniel:
I've got a perfect Bellflower Network contact for you. Her name is Laria Longroad and she heads up the Bellflower Network in Kintargo. She is the halfling proprietor of Long Roads Coffeehouse in Villegre.


HR | MM | RotRL1 | RotRL2 | SD | SS1 | SS2 | WftC_1 | WftC_2 |

Just a heads up, our Alchemist has decided to drop from the game. I was kind of getting the feeling the whole PbP thing wasn't up his alley. As such, I am opening recruitment again for another character, more focused on ranged combat.

Shouldn't affect much since we haven't "officially" started and he hadn't posted anything yet anyway, but wanted to let you all know the status of things.

As a side note, the next prelude is going to be a bit earlier today as I have plans all afternoon that will keep me away from the PC to be able to post it.


HP 31/31 | AC 20 | T 13 | FF 17 | CMD 19| Fort +5| Ref +3 | Will +2 | Init +3 | Perc +6 | Intimidate +7 Bloodrager (Aberrant)

Open recruitment for Ranged or front line. If you get a front line I can go back to my flying blade.


HP 20/20 | AC 20 : T13 : FF17 | CMD : 17 | F:5 R:6 W:0 | Init +4 | Perp +5 (+6 vs Traps) | Darkness 1/1

Loving the prelude lead in. Not sure if you came up with it yourself Dak or if it's part of the campaign but it's a cool way to set things up and start establishing characters. All the more so in a campaign where I imagine the location is a character all it's own.


HR | MM | RotRL1 | RotRL2 | SD | SS1 | SS2 | WftC_1 | WftC_2 |

Thanks, it was actually a resource I found from another GM who offered them up. I've made tweaks, but I felt that it really helped to build some of the atmosphere and story rather than just jumping straight into the protest. Plus it gave me time to finalize things on my end while still giving you all some story :D


Female CG Human Wizard (Exploiter) 3 | HP 20/20 | AC12 T11 FF11 | CMB+1 CMD12 | F+2 R+2 W+3 | Ini+5 | Prcp+4 SM+2 | Spd 30' | Arcane Reservoir 3/6 | Active: heightened awareness

Digging the lead-in too. I'll RP some more stuff when I get a chance.

Regarding recruitment, I strongly and enthusiastically vote for the archer cleric. Having daily access to all the "remove condition" and other "fix-the-problem" cleric spells will be great for our team. And cleric archers are good ranged DPR too.


HP 17/17 | AC 16 | T 11 | FF 14 | CMD 12 | Fort +5 | Ref +2 | Will +7 | Init +4 | Perc +12 | Sense Motive +10 | Darkvision 60'

I do have to second the idea of adding a cleric. My spell list is going to be pretty limited, so having a pure divine character is going to be beneficial. With the ranged combat angle it fills another void.

While I haven't had time yet to read the backgrounds of the new submissions, if you are good with that one then that is my vote.

Just to check in, will work with you guys to tweek as required, and decide either hidden priest archtype or basic cleric and hope to get by on bluff, disguise etc.


HR | MM | RotRL1 | RotRL2 | SD | SS1 | SS2 | WftC_1 | WftC_2 |

Just a note for all, as far as the Silver Ravens are concerned, the player guide kind of misconstrues there current standing, confirmed by Paizo staff. Essentially, the Silver Ravens have been gone from Kintargo for a pretty extended period of time, on the order of years. However, there have been rumors recently (since the whole mess with Thrune started) that someone has been trying to start the organization back up.

Also, I will be making the initial start of game post tonight. I know it’s Memorial Day and people may have plans, so I will wait until this evening for us to get going in the morning.


HP 31/31 | AC 20 | T 13 | FF 17 | CMD 19| Fort +5| Ref +3 | Will +2 | Init +3 | Perc +6 | Intimidate +7 Bloodrager (Aberrant)

Welcome Horillo! Looking forward to it.


HR | MM | RotRL1 | RotRL2 | SD | SS1 | SS2 | WftC_1 | WftC_2 |

@Horillo I think the Hidden Priest makes sense if you are in fact wanting to try and mask your spellcasting/channeling.

I have updated the questions to include a little more about his relationships in Kintargo, namely the the poor sections of society both the Tenements and Devils Nursery, plus using the Songbird Hall to learn prayers and stuff.

Gone with the flavour of Hidden Priest, even though I suspect he won't prove quite as powerful as a standard cleric.

Thanks for the welcome, looking forward to having fun here.

Do I go straight in the gameplay now, or do you have another plan?


HP 20/20 | AC 20 : T13 : FF17 | CMD : 17 | F:5 R:6 W:0 | Init +4 | Perp +5 (+6 vs Traps) | Darkness 1/1

Welcome Horillo!

As far as posting goes feel free. So far GM Dak has been posting events that lead up to where we'll start (some good stuff) and we've been posting a bit about what our characters have been doing just to set the mood and give some backstory so feel free to hop in. That said I believe the initial "kick off" post is going up tonight or in the morning so you could just wait for that as well if you want.

I noticed in your background that you've offered some healing in the Nursery. If that's the case perhaps Nils and Horillo would be acquainted with each other. Let me know if that works or if you'd prefer we meet for the first time in the near future.

Yes I'm happy that Nils and Horillo are aquainted. Whilst Horillo hasn't yet moved into the resistance camp, he may very well have been earmarked by Nils as a possible recruit.

Nils will have seen or been told about the stag and longbow tattoo on Horillo's inner arm. Will add a description of Horillo to his profile soon.

So I obviously don't have the hang of tagging my spoilers, need a lesson to make them look good like Saniel did. I apologize. Also it appears this guy has a little bit too strong a bond to Nammpo with the rolls.

Spoilers are pretty easy. I'll give you a rundown this week when we are on Discord for the game.

Looking at your post all you really failed to do was enter the equals sign between Spoiler and what it was spoiling so to speak.

So [spoiler Rumors:]

Should be, with quotes instead of brackets: "spoiler=Rumors"

What comes after the equal sign is what the button will say.

So {spoiler=Poof} will have a button that says Poof for the spoiler.

Make sense?


HR | MM | RotRL1 | RotRL2 | SD | SS1 | SS2 | WftC_1 | WftC_2 |

Also Mawl, you don’t need to use ooc in the discussion section since it is all ooc, unless you are just practicing :)

Hey all, I was out of town and out of doors for the holiday weekend. I'm back among society and I'll get caught up ASAP. Welcome, Horillo! Nice to see a full divine caster in the group.

Hi Sorix, Sorry I lost some of my nice abilities as I took the Hidden Priest archetype, so lost the touch to remove conditions ... I rather liked that too, but felt that thematically the Hidden Priest was more in keeping with the setting and adventure.

I still have access to all the cleric spells and healing powers and I'm not afraid to use them.


HP 17/17 | AC 16 | T 11 | FF 14 | CMD 12 | Fort +5 | Ref +2 | Will +7 | Init +4 | Perc +12 | Sense Motive +10 | Darkvision 60'

And so the aasimar and the tiefling meet :P


HP 20/20 | AC 20 : T13 : FF17 | CMD : 17 | F:5 R:6 W:0 | Init +4 | Perp +5 (+6 vs Traps) | Darkness 1/1

Doesn't seem to be any rules (or even discussion) around noting someone with Scion of Humanity has a dual nature. I figure an 18 is enough to give Nils an inkling that something is there but not enough to really put a finger on it. Especially considering he's probably never met an Aasimar before :)


HP 17/17 | AC 16 | T 11 | FF 14 | CMD 12 | Fort +5 | Ref +2 | Will +7 | Init +4 | Perc +12 | Sense Motive +10 | Darkvision 60'

Yea, Scion lets them pass for human without disguise. By design he has none of the unusual characteristics one would associate with the aasimar race.

thanks Saniel! I think I can probably swing it next time. Again I apologize for messing up the gameplay posts. Ha, no I wasn't practicing, I'm still new to the environment and I want to look like I know what I'm doing.
