Background:

Everyone is from a 25 mile radius of Fentonville, population 727, which is located in northern Nirmathas. Within that radius there are two other settlements: Orctown and Foggy Lake. Portions of the famed dungeon Rappan Athuk are also located within this area.

Everyone is gathering from far and wide as the pirate Sea Captain Bloody Jack has been caught in Foggy Lake a small port town on Lake Encarthan. He was brought to Fentonville to stand trial and to be promptly executed. Given Fentonville's recent history of repelling undead and demonic forces the population is quite excited about testing out their newly acquired weapon against chaos and evil...Gilly.

Just to verify no APG classes but yes on unchained summoner?


Goblin is a core race correct?

Oh, Gilly's only been in town for a few months. She came after the heroes of Rappan Athuk went back underground searching to destroy the Shrines of Orcus. Gilly was brought in town specifically to act as deterrence and to enforce justice as rendered.

Since it's essentially the same players as that were in the RA game (plus a few lurkers) I decided to set this game in the same town and region that the players are familiar with. It will make it easy for me to reuse NPCs that have been previously created. No need for me to reinvent the wheel.

So what character classes are people thinking of?

These people have check in:

Stabbity (aka Nym)
pscionic hamster (aka Karnog)
STR Ranger (aka Duncan)
Joerice (aka Kalim)
Mythrox
Wabbithuntr

These people have not checked in:

Desmond?
Grung?

I'll let a goblin into the game. It would have come from Orctown though. The goblins there are not evil and they tolerate and respect the law as it's provided them security and a longer life expectancy.

Likewise, if someone chooses to play a half-orc odds are they are from Orctown.

Correct the summoner from unchained is permitted.


Evil GM

These people have check in and Tentative Class selections

Stabbity (aka Nym) - goblin Rogue (Knife Master)
pscionic hamster (aka Karnog)
STR Ranger (aka Duncan) - core barbarian or fighter
Joerice (aka Kalim)
Mythrox - cleric?
Wabbithuntr

Unless of Course Stanbury REALLY wanted to play a 4 CHA Barbarian.

If so I'll go vanilla fighter


I would love to play a goblin knife master. But I can also just fill in what ever we need

Its a reference to a book called Critical Failures that I turned Baldwin on to.

I'm leaning towards an elf or human ranger, specializing in archery.

It's about a group of table top gamers. It's pretty humorous.


any idea of what levels this will play through? 1-6?

Great question. 1-6 sounds about right.


ok since Goblins are allowed it seems to me that one of Orctowns newly formed air-force cadets might have chosen to go a little awol from Orctown to see the excitement

Go to Batman...no, not the handsome rich variety.

I know its not a Core class but had to float the idea. On the other hand flight in low-level games can be problematic and a flying mount can be rendered useless during tight dungeon crawls. So this character would be viable in some scenarios and may or may not fit in with this one. Thoughts?

One of the first parts will be inside a tight location.

How familiar with the RA game chars are we?

Is this set in the same time period?
Are they known to us? How famous are they?


Male Human Fighter HP: 18/19 AC19/12/17, F5/R2/W1, Perception: +2, Init:+2; CMD:17; CMB+5

Calains (short) backstory:

Calain, hated his life.
It was better before the Orcs came.
Brutish pig faced things.
He knew they would never change.
Bad enough he's grown up poor.
Bad enough his Da could work fine weapons like adventurers wanted.
But then the Orcs came and moved right near his home.

That ruined everything.
His dad, struggling to get any real work in the town, with 2 other, BETTER, smiths had moved his forge and his some into Orctown.
Ye'll see me boy. With none in Fentonville wanting ta trade much with the orcs, all the smithin they'll need'll come from me. We'll do much better here.

His FATHER, had done much better there, much better. For once in his life his dad had FINALLY prospered. But at the expense of his son.
Calain, had been a young man in Fentonville and had just begun ta make a name for himself as his own man, his own smith.
He was far better at it than his dad.
But in Orc town, all the Pig faces hated him. Tall and straight and muscular, even by orc standards and in the prime of his youth, he was constantly challened by the bull males wanting to impress the ugly women or their uglier friends. Calain had had enough.

Finally he'd had the strength to tell his father he was leaving.
He was going home.

Same time period.

The heroes are famous and you've all heard stories and rumors.
None have had any real meaningful contact with the heroes (other than a drink or in passing). But you all know of the demon battle at the town.

That being said some of the NPC's you'll know. for instance, Poke Poke will know Meath'd and Mother and probably came to the execution with the clan from Orctown. I mean, it's a party, so they wouldn't miss a good party.

You would certainly know Varl, the adventurer blacksmith, moved to town and opened up a successful shop.

I'm going with Rich Parents trait, since not much for a Barb in the APG...


F Human, NPC Commoner/Entertainer

"I'll be friendly with you sweetie.:" Long brown lashes flutter twice flirtatiously at the muscular hulk. "I'm sure a man of your physique has needs and a bit 'o coin to spend." Her long painted nails rake over Calain's forarm.

From Calain's otherside an oblong head with two beady black eye a mouthful of teeth smile at the overly friendly lady then returns to his ale while humming a tune.

Friendly Tracey should take note of the arsenal of weapons the Big Man inn Polished Breastplate is carrying and noting the LACK of other items beyond a SMALL coin pouch.

Clearly this gentleman was wearing vast majority of his wealth.
Enough for a bed. One. When I'm in a mood for sport I'll let you know.

Calain is ready for play. Can't get much more Core than power attack and cleave.

I was wondering if you were going to join the game.


Evil GM

I started to place some information under the Campaign Info tab. It's not complete but it's a beginning.


Unnamed

How bout a halfling who thinks he is a goblin.

Barbarian maybe

Ah there is already a barbarian

Unarmed fighter? Mostly shin kick and bite and headbutt and die early!


Looks like someone needs to fill the arcane slot

I'm having difficulty getting excited about a core low level wizard or sorcerer

Would a half-orc witch be acceptable with absolutely no slumber hex

I've never played a witch and would much rather spam hexes when I run out of spells than plink away with a crossbow
