A Push of the Fates.... Zakhara... You Jewel!

Game Master Insnare

The Free City of Muluk takes it name from the long, unbroken line ofrulers whose history predates the Enlightened Throne in Huzuz It isknown for its exquisite regal purple dyes produced from local indigo plants.Muluk lies along the shore of the Great Sea at the mouth of the River Al-Zalim. Like most of the Free Cities, Muluk is a fiercely independent martialstate, engaged in unrelenting, low-grade conflict with the savage hill tribes ofthe nearby Furrowed Mountains, the ravaging pirates from the Corsair Isles,and the hostile armies of Umara and Qadib, both neighboring Free Cities

Hi,

I tried to do this under the name AL-Qadim which is a really cool setting in the Forgotten Realms planet.

I am looking for six heroes up for going mentally toe to toe with Djinn, Jann, Dao and the other creatures of the Land of Fate.

2E AD&D, I am extremely generous going with 5d6 drop the lowest two.
Out of a party of six, I will be cool with two members being Outlanders.( Not from Zakhara)


I have never played 2e, but would be willing to learn especially if we are starting from level 1. I found this site that seems to have a lot of 2e stuff. For me to learn from.

I am a daily active member of the PBP forum. I currently run 2 games and am a player in one more. I am able to keep post most every mornings and evenings. I am going to go ahead and roll some stats and if you allow me then I will dig into character creation.

Stat Dice Rolls:

Stat 1: 5d6 ⇒ (2, 1, 4, 6, 1) = 14 12
Stat 2: 5d6 ⇒ (6, 3, 3, 2, 6) = 20 15
Stat 3: 5d6 ⇒ (5, 4, 1, 5, 4) = 19 14
Stat 4: 5d6 ⇒ (6, 1, 5, 3, 5) = 20 16
Stat 5: 5d6 ⇒ (2, 6, 4, 3, 2) = 17 13
Stat 6: 5d6 ⇒ (1, 6, 2, 1, 2) = 12 10

Stats: 16, 15, 14, 13, 12, 10


Awesome, rolling something up.

Spoiler:

5d6 ⇒ (1, 4, 6, 3, 5) = 19
5d6 ⇒ (6, 4, 5, 4, 2) = 21
5d6 ⇒ (1, 5, 3, 4, 6) = 19
5d6 ⇒ (1, 4, 5, 4, 4) = 18
5d6 ⇒ (5, 2, 6, 1, 5) = 19
5d6 ⇒ (5, 3, 5, 2, 1) = 16

15.15.15.13.16.13

What are the allowed sources and optional variants in play?

edit: oops, forgot I already rolled in previous thread. Ill use those. You also already answered my question. Sorry! Its been a month.


Great. We will be playing in the Al Qadim setting which has an Arabian Flare. If you need say Arabian Adventures PM me.

Hmmm. Love me some Al-Qadim. Let me dig out my old 2E books and see what I can come up with. ::cracks knuckles::

Dice Rolls:
5d6 ⇒ (3, 3, 4, 3, 3) = 16

5d6 ⇒ (1, 4, 6, 6, 5) = 22
5d6 ⇒ (6, 6, 1, 5, 4) = 22
5d6 ⇒ (3, 1, 1, 2, 1) = 8
Hit Points: 1d10 + 2 ⇒ (10) + 2 = 12
Money: 4d4 ⇒ (4, 2, 1, 1) = 8
Station: 1d2 ⇒ 2

5d6 - 3 ⇒ (3, 4, 1, 6, 2) - 3 = 13 Cha

HP: 1d4 ⇒ 1

I think I would like to take one of the Outlander spots, if one still lives, specifically with a Wizard.

Orven:

Orven is the apprentice to the Half-Elven mage, Otheniel. Otheniel has sent Orven on a training mission to another land, specifically to find some rare waters that only exist there. He has been given a pitcher to pour the water into, which will fill the matching pitcher at Otheniel's location.

Trusting his master, Orven stepped through the portal into the hot desert sun. Now he is trying to make his way to the Capital of Zakhara to collect said water for his master.

Life, however, is seldom that simple...

EDIT: and here is my character:

Crunch:

Dotting. Thinking a fighter or paladin will see what the dice say.


ok


Any other takers?

Sovereign Court

I'm tentatively interested; what's in the group so far?

Stat: 5d6 ⇒ (1, 3, 3, 6, 6) = 19 -> 15
Stat: 5d6 ⇒ (1, 4, 3, 6, 5) = 19 -> 15
Stat: 5d6 ⇒ (2, 4, 2, 4, 3) = 15 -> 11
Stat: 5d6 ⇒ (1, 4, 6, 6, 1) = 18 -> 16
Stat: 5d6 ⇒ (2, 6, 2, 1, 1) = 12 -> 10
Stat: 5d6 ⇒ (3, 6, 4, 1, 1) = 15 -> 13


Relic rolled, Unknown
WhtKnt Fighter
Igneous Cleric/Thief
mishima Thief
Vrog outlander Wizard
Iron dot, warrior

If no one plays a Sha'ir by the time we start I might switch to one.

Sovereign Court

Er, according to the PHB under "Multi-Class Combinations," dwarves cannot be cleric/thieves - only fighter/clerics or fighter/thieves.

I'll make a sha'ir.


Great Shairs are awesome!


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I am really excited.

Sovereign Court

Started work on the alias Fadilah al-Qadib, a sha'ir from Qadib, the City of Wands (one of the Free Cities of the northern coast).

Hit points: 1d4 ⇒ 4

Initial funds: 1d4 + 1 ⇒ (2) + 1 = 3 x10 = 30 gp

Because of the website bugs I can't pick an appropriate picture for the alias.


I would like to get started saturday. Please have all submissions ready. Thanks!

Sovereign Court

Fadilah is ready to go, though it would be helpful to know where we're going to start!

She is a stock sha'ir who is wholly reliant on getting spells via her gen. She has a wide range of skills that are mostly useful in a social context (I took poetry because it's connected with sha'ir in mythology, and all of the recommended proficiencies for the kit).

I'm a regular boards player and GM, so I'm not going to suddenly disappear. I like good RP and I have a soft spot for the great settings that AD&D produced in the 2nd edition era.

I also like having some kind of connection with other party members, if somebody wants one!


I never rolled for station, its a whopping d3 for beggars. xD

Station: 1d3 ⇒ 1

rofl, lowest of the low.

I'd be down for a connection of some sort, he would be a common sight around the city. I need to finalize some background thoughts first though.

Sovereign Court

Good call.

Station: 1d6 + 5 ⇒ (4) + 5 = 9


Great! We will be starting in the City of Muluk, I plan to run it both figuratively and literally as a sandbox. I have three or four adventures ideas that could run simultaneously. We should have some fun with this.

Sovereign Court

Cool, that means that Fadilah probably fled Qadib and headed on the trade route southwest to Muluk and has recently arrived there.


mishima here, I'll be using this alias.

Insnare, I just wanted to double check something to make sure I'm not cheating myself. To take both common and elven as languages I need to spend 1 NWP, since common is free and elven is not?


That is true.


Alrighty, I think I'll change around some NWP then so I can get thieves cant and a few more misc ones. Survival Urban is thematic, but probably not worth it for the 4 pt cost the more I think about it.


Any other questions?

Dark Archive

Yes, in purchasing gear without going through the haggling process, do we use the Asking column or the Normal price?


Let's say normal price.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

One needs to remember that starting equipment, although given a monetary price could have represented gifts from family, things your character found after a battle or something of the like.

Dark Archive

Okay, Nura begins play with:

Leather armor, jambiya, shortbow, 24 arrows, scimitar, waterskin, backpack, whetstone, large belt pouch, 50 feet of silk rope, 1 week of dry rations, 1 gp, 5 sp, and 9 cp.

The daughter of a merchant, Nura has spent much of her life on and around the water. She took her first ride on her father's ship at the tender age of three and found her sea legs almost immediately. She is most at home on the rolling deck of a ship.

She was born in the city of Qudra, but has traveled the length and breadth of Zakhara. She has a friend in every port and counts among her acquaintance's beggars and sheiks, commoners and sha'irs. Nura makes friends easily and is very flirty but has yet to find "the one" to settle down with.


You mean 1 Dinar, 5 Dirhams and 9 bits.

Dark Archive

Right, that's what I mean. :)


Ok, we will get started today. So who is with me?


Still here. I'll get an alt created.

Edit: and created one I have.


Ready, if accepted.


I will accept all of your characters, please feel free to check in the game thread. I will post maps of the city of Muluk.


Awesome! Thanks for running, Insnare!


This is a brief message to let everyone know that I am going to be on vacation from Sunday, 23 September until 1 October. As many of you may be aware, my wife is 90% blind from glaucoma. She wanted to see Walt Disney World through the eyes of friends who have never been (or haven't been in many years) before she can't see at all. So I, she, and 9 of our friends are all going to Walt Disney World for a week!

During this time, my posting will be greatly curtailed, if not nonexistent. If you are in my game, I will continue upon my return, just sit tight. If I am in your game, please feel free to bot me as required.

During this week leading up to my vacation, I will be very busy and may be slowed, but I will try to get a post out before leaving for the week.


Good luck WhtKnt, you are quite the guy.


This still open? I have been running an AD&D game and it makes me wanna PLAY it too, lol.


We can use another player.


Stat Roll: 5d6 ⇒ (3, 4, 6, 3, 6) = 22 6,6,4=16
Stat Roll: 5d6 ⇒ (5, 6, 1, 3, 1) = 16 6,5,3=14
Stat Roll: 5d6 ⇒ (1, 2, 2, 6, 2) = 13 6,2,2=10
Stat Roll: 5d6 ⇒ (6, 1, 3, 3, 1) = 14 6,3,3=13
Stat Roll: 5d6 ⇒ (6, 2, 6, 1, 4) = 19 6,6,4=16
Stat Roll: 5d6 ⇒ (5, 3, 3, 4, 5) = 20 5,5,4=14

I could do almost anything except paladin with those numbers. Looking at the kits from Arabian Adventures at the moment, and since I haven't delved deeply into the setting before I am checking to see if I can find other sourcebooks.


Ok, we have a Shai'r, an Outlander Wizard, a Corsair, and a Beggar Thief.


Yeah, I feel like you guys could use a cleric, lol. Considering an elven mystic of Najm. Best image I have in mind right now. I am really tempted to multiclass with bard since I see her as a singer/caller/chanter sort and I love options, but I am not sure yet.

EDIT: going to stick with single classed cleric. My brain started forming the character so I'm going to let it keep flowing, lol.


Alias for Nabila, crunch is being worked on, fluff is in my head but I need to read a little more on the region before getting her backstory fully involved.

Insnare, please let me know how you want me to jump in and what if anything I know from what has happened so far.

HP lvl 1: 1d8 ⇒ 1 lol
Station: 2d4 ⇒ (1, 2) = 3
Starting Wealth: 3d6 ⇒ (5, 4, 1) = 10
Age: 5d6 + 100 ⇒ (6, 6, 5, 2, 2) + 100 = 121
Height: 1d10 + 50 ⇒ (5) + 50 = 55
Weight: 3d10 + 70 ⇒ (4, 5, 7) + 70 = 86


Well, the group is in Muluk. The city of Kings. They just followed a fish down a well after watching an altercation in the bazaar. They are not really a party yet. So it is possible you followed them to help.


Well, her cousin named her The Cat for a number of reasons, but the thrill of a hunt combined with just plain being curious as to the outcome of such a situation would be compelling.


I think crunch is totally done at this point. Will get the fluff up ASAP and will be catching up on gameplay tonight.
