Welcome all to the recruitment page for Ire of the Storm, a Pathfinder module set in the dark steaming jungles south of Sargava. The module takes a party from level 1 through to level 6 by the end - should the party survive that far to see it…
This recruitment is for a replacement character to join a party of four after a fifth member had to drop out. The game has been running consistently with a steady pace and great quality RP since early June 2017 (here's the link:Ire Of The Storm), and we'd like YOU to help take it the rest of the way !
The existing party have all reached level three, and are made up of Iradyiel, a naive half-elf barbarian, Chest-Thumper, a half orc druid with his armoured ape, Francis, Pious a deranged human Inquisitor of Aroden, and Aza, a burnt and traumatised human Oracle. What they are lacking is arcane spellcasting - specifically, some offensive ranged capability or area control. What we are really looking for though is someone who can deliver a high quality and reliability of RP posts. It is of prime important to us in continuing this great experience.
Here's the recruitment spec:
Classes: Core, Base and Hybrid plus Unchained Rogue are allowed. No third party content. No Summoners or Gunslingers. No others (don't ask!). Any Paizo archetype allowed.
Races: Core only, any Paizo variant racial traits allowed.
Starting Level: PCs will start at 3rd level.
Alignment: Any non-evil. No direct PvP conflict.
Ability Scores: 20 point buy.
HP: Max HP at 1st level, average round up thereafter.
Traits: two traits allowed from separate types
Skills: Background skill variant used, 2 background skill ranks per level.
Starting Money: As per core rules
Other: No firearms, no ‘unchained’ rules beyond UC Rogue.
Please, no posts asking ‘what about…?’ or ‘have you considered allowing…?’. These are the limits - please work within them.
Here's the recruitment fluff:
Bear in mind that 'Ire of the Storm' is more jungle exploration than dungeon crawl. PCs aligned to nature and weather themes will fare well but are by no means necessary.
If you're interested in submitting a character, please include the following information in your profile:
I am particularly interested in your character’s motivation for being in the dangerous frontier lands in the steamy jungles of the south. Look, I'm not expecting an essay, just evidence that you've thought this through and have something we can all work with. I'll be judging people more on their history of gameplay postings than on oh-so-clever builds or novella-length backgrounds.
Here's the module intro - THE IRE OF THE STORM
Originally named ‘Pridon’s Grave’ by the local Song’o halfling tribes, the upstart town of Pridon’s Hearth is the newest colony of the nascent kingdom of Sargarva, pushing the country’s borders further than ever before into the damp and swampy jungles to the south. Answering a call from the local land-owner for a second wave of colonisation, the PCs were drawn by tales of long-lost temples and the abandoned riches of long-dead heretical cults.
However, since their arrival dark threatening stormclouds have been assaulting the town, and indeed the wider region. The colony's protective bastion, Fort Breakthrough, has been raided and the militia inside all slaughtered. The town itself came under attack from lizardfolk raiders in the midst of a terrifying unnatural storm. An exploration vessel, the Cobalt Eye, has now been twice wrecked on the coast, its first crew having been killed in the storm and reanimated by horrifying creatures from the plane of water.
Through all this a party of erstwhile heroes, the 'Papaya Knights', have struggled to protect the townsfolk of Pridon, but it is far from certain that this mixed group of heroes and chancers will be enough to shield the growing colony from raging tempests and hostile monsters. Dare you join them, and brave the Ire of the Storm?
I will close recruitment no later than midnight GMT after the long Thanksgiving weekend. I can’t wait to see your submissions, and to have you join our shared adventure. Good luck - and importantly, whether you are successful or not, thank you for any time you commit on this thread !
