Here is Hess Grimlock


Glad to see you guys here. So tell me about your PC before you start the AP. What city in Realms are your from? For example I see Damaran for Hess. What is your experience with the world at large?

Hess has travelled much of the West coast of Faerun following rumors of entrances to the underdark, and instances of creatures from there appearing. His family was assaulted and kidnapped by a group of what he believes to be Drow when he was 16, and he's refused to give up hope that they still live... so he hunts for them. If a few drow, or duergar lose their lives as a result... too bad.

Could you go ahead and create the game thread, so I can dot. If a post is made in the game thread it shows up in my campaign log, so I don't have to go looking for it for new posts.

Anders is a behemoth of a man from Icewind Dale. He comes from the Reghed Barbarian Clan of the Bear. He has traveled recently across the Realms, looking for like-minded adventurers so that all will sing the sagas of his great deeds.


Rornvak was born and grew up in the dwarven city of Iltkazar, located under the Omlarandin Mountains at the eastern end of human kingdom of Tethyr.
Trained as a smith and mason, Rornvak also served on the local militia and helped partol the many tunnels and passageways around his home. It was during one of these patrols that the group was attacked by a force of duergar. As his friends and comrades fell all about him, a great rage gripped the young dwarf and he flew into a rage. When all was said and done, he was the last survivor of the patrol. He had killed or frightened off the remaining duergar. Though bloody and battered, he still stood guard over the bodies of his fallen friends. Since that time, Rornvak has learned to harness his rage and let it out when and where he wished.

I could change my background easily to criminal so we have some rogue skills. Wouldn't really change the story so far. Also thinking about Beastmaster instead of hunter.


Hess that's fine, if want change.

Be careful, Hess. Hunter's Mark is very powerful and useful as you progress. The Hunter Archetype is very fun. I run one at my tabletop game.

Hey all you melee monsters, your magical backup has arrived. :D

By the way, I don't really know the setting very well, which is why I haven't posted much about my backstory or city of origin or anything. But I figure we can just roll with it and let his personality develop through gameplay, right?


That's fine. The Realms are old in gaming sense I will DM some stuff for the fans and I will keep it light enough for the new players. Just a heads up to all I am about having fun and I am an Old School DM. I want you guys to try stuff and have fun.

Fortunately I have two levels to decide for sure. Hopefully we'll get a more rogue like and/or arcane character to join us soon. Maybe an Arcane Trickster!!!

Speaking of which, should we maybe pause Gameplay until we're done gathing victims allies? Wouldn't want to leave folks out or anything.

Should I PM a couple of good players I play 5E with and try for another player?


Nope this is a good group. I am letting some players get their stuff together. Double Gold needs a PC and I gave Artemis a free reroll. If I don't see anything by Sunday night we will move on. Besides there is enough NPCs for this AP.

Are we still waiting on people?


Yes we are. I will give them a few more hours.

Scarab Sages

here and ready for action. This warlock will go for stealth and dmg, so expect spells like disguise self and invisibility from him.

I hate to say it, but I'm dropping out of this campaign. I'm having a lot of trouble trying to follow what's going on or figure out who's who. I hope the rest of you are able to have lots of fun. :)

I too am having a hard time...however, when I am in doubt, I just attack. So, since we are in initiative, I will do so on my turn.


I am just checking in to see who still wants in.


still interested!!!!


Barbarian/3; HP: 38/38; AC: 15; Perception: +2; Rage 3/3 per Day, 10/10 Rounds; HD 3/3; Inspiration 1/1

I down pretty low in Initiative, but I will try to grapple somebody on my turn...still here. I will post it in the Gameplay Thread.
