[PFS_CORE_Aerondor] Bonekeep level 1 (3-7) Nostalgiacon


Recruitment

Lantern Lodge

Come one, come all. For perhaps your only chance to ever play this under PBP.

If you:
1: survive (hahahaha)
2: finish early and
3: the Powers That Be (tm) allow it..

then I also intend to take the survivors (hahahaha) into part two. And even part three (but that does seem excessively unlikely).

I'll pick mostly based on party level/composition. The odds are somewhat stacked against you from the start, so you need your best shot at it.
Given that I may also bias slightly in terms of known good posters. I have no idea what that may mean in practice - just giving myself an out and attempting to give the team the best chance.

I'm also going to heavily favor real characters over pregens.

This is part of Nostalgiacon

For the moment, just post your interest and the character details you would like to play with.

Oh, and best confirm you have the gold/PP for body recovery and resurrection.
Just Sayin.


Would you consider opening up the game to Core campaign mode? That would allow players to create some really wacky characters. In terms of posting I am pretty active and can definitely keep up with what ever pace you set. I have played this live and you can only complete it if you play at a frantic pace. You would have to have good posters to even have a chance of getting through it in a couple of months in PBP assuming that they don't die of course. :)

My only CORE character is a 5th level Sorcerer who I am currently playing (and would not survive five seconds in Bonekeep anyways). If I had to choose a Pre-Gen it would definitely be Lini at 4th or 7th level as appropriate.

Yeeesh...tempting, but you know the only Core character I have in that level range, and Tere isn't exactly optimized. At least he has the PP for recovery and raising, though.

Sovereign Court

Pau is available and in the level range.

Lantern Lodge

This is a one off special exception from the campaign management to play in a PBP format. So Campaign mode is really not an option.
And heck, my point here is to give something special to some Core characters. If I don't get enough signups with non-pregens then I'll allow pregens as I'm pretty sure you are going to want a full table.

It is also looking likely that we'll only get to do the first level. I've not yet seen what the extra requirements for converting this to PBP is going to look like.

Liberty's Edge

Two Blades in the Shadows is available (Rogue 6/Cleric 1) and has the PP if needed (but hope not, I just need to out run you)

Sovereign Court

Oh, I do have the PP and gold as well.

Grand Lodge

Any keep not stand against the might of the furious Hadanka!

Level 5 core barbarian. If it fits the group better, I also have a level 6 core diviner wizard. I am willing to risk either in a run of bonekeep.

Hello,
I have never played this before so I have no idea what the story is. But: My level 6 elven wizard would very much like the challenge.

She has 22 PP and enough gold to come back! ;-)

Personality:

Shen is a strong woman that hides her insecurity through an arrogant and aloof attitude. Although she is not a follower of Calistria, Shen’s personality is partially shaped by her two mothers that were Calistrian clerics. Shen wants nothing more and nothing less than the freedom to live as she pleases without bothering her environment. She is against the way of the wicked, but does not necessarily distaste amoral behavior as long as nobody is hurt. Most importantly, she values the individual’s right to satisfaction, in whatever form that takes. She accepts that one’s actions have consequences, and knows that life is not fair, nor is it good or evil. It simply is, and she is determined to seize every moment together with companions and if her insecurity is overcome she would also like to to give others the opportunity to experience the fruits that life has to offer.

--------------------

Background:

Shen had a rough start in life. Found decades ago before the rise of house Thrune on the steps of the temple of Calistria, wrapped in blankets, with no name or note of any kind but a golden mark resembling the holy symbol of the Savored Sting on her arm, her life could have ended right there.

But two Calistrian priests, a Sargavan spy and a Korvosan prostitute, Sharon and Kollina, had received a repeating vision that showed two elves in an immoral union and a strange golden mark on their arms that were identical to the mark on the child in front of their steps.

Irritated but obliged to follow this mystical sign the two women cared for the kid in an environment not typical for a child. They named her Shen and although the life of Sharon and Kollina was centered mainly on themselves and pleasure came before duty they raised her in the faith of Calistria.

Though Shen was not the only child in the temple, her innocence and initial lack of social aptitude led to a harsh life in a house where seduction, vengeance and erratic behavior were the norm. Although she also saw the good that could potentially result from the faith, she also saw the evil that was committed in her name.

A child is framed by the environment that she lives in but Shen was never comfortable with the full aspect Calistria’s portfolio, and it was clear after a while that although she was devoted to her two mothers, Shen was not willing to accept Calistria as her goddess.

The rise of house Thrune and the attack on the Calistrian faith throughout Cheliax led to a disaster that Shen could not have imagined. In a single night the majority of Calistrian clerics in Kintargo were either killed, imprisoned or pushed into hiding. Although Shen was already an adolescent at that time it was nonetheless a shock for her when Sharon proclaimed her independent and left her on her own to leave Cheliax.

Shen ’s survival was not a certainty but she was successful to follow her teachings and made a path through Cheliax that led her to a far corner where her Chelish roots would hold but resistance versus house Thrune was also visible: Sargava!

Well, the initial flurry seems to have worn down
Shen - level 6 wizard
Hadanka - level 5 barbarian
Pau - level 6 monk
Two-blades - level 7 (rogue/cleric)
Tere (?) level 7 (fighter/rogue/shadow dancer)

That is legal and then some, if light on healing.
I'll post in recruitment again in Flaxseed and also the con page, as I think six would be benificial.


Tbh I actually wonder if the pregen cleric would be your best 6th option if no actual cleric offers.

I'll give it a bit of time but I have a Wizard 7 if you don't get another player. Or Kyra if you want.

Grand Lodge

I have a wizard/7 (or a pretty useless druid/6), but I will defer to another comer.

I'll take the chance with Tere. Maybe sneakiness will help us avoid some of the encounters....

Lantern Lodge

So that is five. Given the scenario, I'll leave the choice of pregen Kyral or the W7 to bigguyinblack.

miteke you are my stand-by if someone drops off the radar before the event starts.

Discussion is now open. I'll go back to using that for chronicles for this, as rpgchronicles doesn't seem to have Bonekeep set up.


Stand-by sounds perfect to me.

Liberty's Edge

Heard you're looking for a cleric. I'll give it some thought.


I'll step aside for Belladonna if she decides to play of course since a PC cleric is ideal.

Liberty's Edge

Ok. I'm in. Are you able to play at all, Bigguyinblack? This isn't limited to just 4 players, right?


1 person marked this as a favorite.

6 players can play but the list is

Shen - level 6 wizard
Hadanka - level 5 barbarian
Pau - level 6 monk
Two-blades - level 7 (rogue/cleric)
Tere level 7 (fighter/rogue/shadow dancer)
Belladonna level 6 - Cleric

Good luck all.

Lantern Lodge

Which is actually a remarkably balanced team overall.

If you could enter your details into the discussion threat and feel free to make any decisions about free items you get from FJCs etc. Plan, plan plan.

Also, good idea to dot into gameplay.

Liberty's Edge

That's very kind of you, Bigguyinblack. Thank you for giving up your spot for me.

Or sending you to die in my place. ;)

Bwahahahahaha.

I mean.... You do realise in all my four stars I've never actually killed off a character?

Liberty's Edge

Wait, what if that's how you really get a fifth star?

Oh, dear. I guess you're right. Yikes!

I'll be sure to think of you as I lay dying on the cold stone floor.

Lantern Lodge

I've heard a rumour it's kind of like divine assentation.. your path to the stars is paved with dead characters...

Liberty's Edge

The (Five) Starstone Test?

Lantern Lodge

Still looking for character details over in discussion for Two Blades and Tere.

Scarab Sages

Hopefully your lost players show up but if you don't get your 6th player before you start I can jump in with my Wizard 7.

Liberty's Edge

It's been a busy couple of weeks; I'll get that up tomorrow or Tuesday.
