The inquisitions of the Third Crusade captured demonic enemies in and around Kenabres, but brought widespread paranoia and the persecution of many innocent souls. This added a new source of fear to an already terrifying war, creating zealots both for and against the leading inquisitor Hulrun Shappok and his cause. In the years since, Hulrun has seen the error of his ways, relaxed his policies, and ceased the witch-hunts common decades ago. Most of his disciples followed suit, but a few remained fervently vigilant for signs of corruption. Fewer still survived the recent attack on Kenabres.
Recruitment is open for 1 Table of Scars of the Third Crusade. This will start in the first session for GD VII on August 13th. I am opening this recruitment a little late, but hopefully get enough interest for 1 table. The table will be either low or higher tier depending on what fills first. First come and first serve.
Please post the following.
A brief description of your character would be of benefit too.
Am I too late? Eh, I'm probably too late. Of course, in a sense we're all too late, unless you listen to me carefully and prepare!
Player: Caro Cogitatus
Character: (The) Herald
Faction: Liberty's Edge
Day Job: Preaching in the town square. Not much money in it, actually. Mostly rotten fruit.
Full description in his bio page, but the short version is an older middle age man with little regard for personal hygiene or social skills, usually found in the center of town, preaching some nonsense about the impending arrival (10,000 years from now) of "He/She/It" or "She/They/He" or "It/She/He" (it seems to change every time). He is apparently the chosen herald of this whatever-it-is, but The Herald is attempting to warn us about it rather than help it.
He carries a large shield, upon which is written many, many equations, charts, graphs, poems, drawings, etc. If you watch it closely, sometimes the equations and graphs and such fade into the background, only to be replaced by equally disturbing content.
Whether his tunic is stained with rotten tomatoes largely depends on how long he's been in town.
Thanks for running, GM!
Character:Finger Middlehammer (Fighter 2) -Apologies for the contemptuous name
Day Job: none
I created Finger (and his silly last name) as a test bed for an idea in game mechanics, and turns out I really enjoy playing him. Looks like the group is lower tier and in need of frontline meat.
His concept is the NPC rank and file militia that PCs finds guarding gates and milling around on parapets. Finger is the NPC coming into the PC world; a B-side kinda story.
Faction: Sovereign Court
Day Job: Profession: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (6) + 5 = 11
