Lunar Sloth's Second Darkness

Game Master Slothsy

But down in the underground
You'll find someone true
Down in the underground
A land serene
A crystal moon

Map of Riddleport

The elves of the Mierani Forest have been hiding something from outside eyes for hundreds of years, but now, this sinister secret has escaped. What at first seems to be a sudden uprising in unsanctioned banditry in the Riddleport hinterlands is in fact something altogether more menacing—the dark elves have come to Varisia. Yet the threat presented by the drow from below may be nothing compared to a new threat from the skies above. Can a new group of heroes save the world from the Second Darkness?

Unique Rules and Mechanical Information

Working at the Gold Goblin:
Your work at the Gold Goblin will affect how it fares. Each week, the owner (or stand-in owner) of the casino will make a Profit Rank check, which will determine the profitability and standing of the casino for the week.

During the week, you can perform actions to help the Goblin gain Profit Points, which are earned off of completing a task and succeeding on its skill check. For example, you can choose to spread the word out about the Goblin (diplomacy check), create advertisements (craft), act as a greeter (diplomacy), try cajoling or tricking people into visiting (bluff), acting as a bouncer (intimidate), spend time threatening competitors (intimidate), performing (perform), working as a dealer or croupier (profession [gambler]), or keeping an eye out for cheaters (perception). If you have a different activity you wish to do, discuss it with me to determine appropriate skills. All of these tasks take 2 hours, and you are able to work for up to four hours a day doing tasks, leaving the rest of the time to adventure, craft magic items, shop, or relax.

You may also donate your personal fortune to help keep the Goblin afloat. Every 50 gp added will give a +1 to the owner’s check, up to a maximum of +5 for 250 gp.

House Rules

Flagbearer - Vark may choose to attach his flag to a longspear. Choosing to attack with the longspear will deny him (and the party) the benefits of the flagbearer feat until his next turn.

Hit Points - When you level, you may roll twice and take the higher of the two rolls. Alternatively, you may choose to take your average hit die instead of rolling.

Level - Experience is tracked by the GM and the party levels as a group.
