Legends of Arhade OOC

These are dark days in the continent of Arhade.

Since the ancient Arhade empire, the continent has been fractured into countless petty kingdoms, duchies, and principalities. Nobles with dubious ties to the Arhadian dynasty struggle for greater power and glory, treating war and conflict as a game. Thrones and crowns are constantly in flux, and no single individual has managed to hold on to power for long.

Emperor Jamon Arlis de Tonaro, the Red Prince, has come to power in the East. Through years of brutal conquest that are rumored to be fueled by an unspeakable dark power, he has conquered several independant countries and forced them under his own banner. Tonaro claims to be the true heir of the ancient Emperor Arhade, the man who had previously united the continent that now bears his name.

But Arhade was a paladin of great power, and a known follower of the protector goddess Baliela. Whatever it is that drives Tonaro, he is not working through her will.

None of these politics matter much to you, however. For you are mere slaves, forced to fight day after day in the fighting pits of Tik' Terar, the capital city of the Dunhardown Empire. Some days the emperor himself watches you struggle and bleed and die. You have seen friends fall, friends butchered, and have been close to death's embrace yourself. But you have endured, and grown strong. Your surviving companions, who fight by your side today, are closer than your long-forgotten families.

However... you still hold on to hope that you may escape, that you may be free.

Another morning... and the head guard barks at you to awaken and prepare for the day's fight...
************************************************************

This will be a 4th Edition D&D game.

All players will start at 2nd level.
25 pt buy for stats, and 100 gp for starting equipment.
All starting equipment will be of inferior quality. Swords will be rusty and/or dull, armor will be falling to pieces, etc. Therefore, all starting weapons will have a "shoddy" penalty of -1 to attacks and damage. All "shoddy" armor will have an additional 1 check penalty (Leather armor has 1, chain has 2, etc)

I hope to have about five players, but don't mind going to six if I have to. Express interest and post character sheets for me to review.
The Bushranger

I am so goin' in!
Calling Feylock here. Very Happy
apeoflight

Ohhh sounds fun count me in.

Hmm, now to make a charachter...
The Bushranger

Erin Patricia O'Connell, Human Feylock
Very Happy
TwoBitWriter

Well, that's two...
Wukei

Don't get too downtrodden 2BW.  It usually takes all week for everyone to notice a new game.  (I can't get involved just cuz my sickness is still off and on and while I can postpone DMing a game, I don't want to keep everyone from playing because they have to wait for me in a game I don't DM.)
TwoBitWriter

No worries, Wukei. I know it's only been about 12 hours.  Razz

I'm not worried.
wxdruid

If I can get my hands on the PHB II 4e then I'll work on a druid character...
Destro Yersul

I think I've got the basic 4e books kicking around. I might try to create something really quick, should you need another player.
The Bushranger

Gwen, if you want I can type up the bare bones of the 4e druid and PM them to you.
wxdruid

Acquired PHB II 4e at 12:08pm...

If allowed, I'll probably try to create a shifter druid type.  It'll be the second 4e char I've ever tried to create.
TwoBitWriter

Oye, I forget that in 4e, five  stats start at 10 and one at 8 and with 22 points to spend.

30 is way too many under that system.

So I'm switching it to 25 point buy...

Sorry for the confusion.

And I'm loathe to allow PHB II... because I"m not familiar with it.

However, I will allow it and just have to acquire the book somehow.
The Bushranger

Fixed Erin's ability scores accordingly. ^_^
Moon_Called

I am, of course, interested.

...
And BR wonders why I don't have time for Town. ><

I'll work on a character sheet when I get home tonight.
wxdruid

I think I did it right.  If someone could check over my sheet?

Ruadhan
TwoBitWriter

Looks good to me.
apeoflight

Hey where can I get one of those online character sheets?
The Bushranger

Either http://www.thetangledweb.net or http://www.myth-weavers.com can provide them; I reccomend the latter. Smile
TwoBitWriter

Well, we have a druid and a warlock. That covers our casters, and our striker and controller roles.

Could use a defender and a leader at least. If we can get sheets from ape and MC we can manage with a 4 person party.

I would like to get a fifth person interested...
Destro Yersul

I'll have a look at the books later today. I'm thinking a knightly crusader of some variety. Guess that would be defender? I don't know. Never played 4e before >.>
TwoBitWriter

You would probably be looking at either the Paladin or Cleric Class.

Paladin is more knightly, but Clerics can definitely hold their own in melee.
Destro Yersul

Never played a paladin too much before, aside from Endrik, and we all know he's a jerk. Think I'll go with that. Gimme some time to make a sheet and familiarize with the system, and I'll be good to go.
Moon_Called

Destro's playing a Paladin? In that case, I'll go with the Ranger.
I'll get started on her character sheet as soon as I finish up this backstory.
apeoflight

I guess I'll make a cleric or possibly a warlord....
The Bushranger

So that's...
Feylock (Striker)
Druid (Controller)
Paladin (Defender)
Ranger (Striker)
Cleric/Warlord (Leader)
TwoBitWriter

Sounds like a pretty balanced party, on the whole.

The Ranger will be a 2-weapon mele Ranger, so MC will also function as a secondary Defender.

Okay, unless someone else really wants to join, I think we can close recruitment. Five players is the perfect number.
apeoflight

Okay I think I got this done right now. http://www.myth-weavers.com/sheetview.php?sheetid=116323 Tell me if I did anything wrong or need to change something.
The Bushranger

Lex would like to join with a Tiefling Rogue, if we've got room for one more.
TwoBitWriter

No problem at all! Lex is more than welcome to join!
Destro Yersul

Right. Here's my sheet as it stands. Note that I have absolutely no idea what the hell I'm doing, so if you could tell me what I've inevitably done wrong I'd appreciate that.

Go ahead and start without me?
I might be a smiiiiidge late. ^^"
TwoBitWriter

Alright, I can't check tangled web at work, so it will have to probably wait for sometime tonight, late.

Tonight is date night with the missus, after all. That is untouchable.
TwoBitWriter

Heads up. I am hoping to get this game started soon, sometime this weekend.
The Bushranger

Sweet ^_^
TwoBitWriter

Looks good Des. But don't forget that your equipment is of inferior quality, so I would like to see that reflected in your equipment list.
Destro Yersul

Yeah. I need to find somewhere to put that. Gimme a sec...
Gnrlshrimp

I wish, I wish, I wish I'd noticed this sooner...
Moon_Called

'Kay, I've got my character finished. Lemme know what you think, TwoBi.

http://www.myth-weavers.com/sheetview.php?sheetid=116674
The Bushranger

I read the background and cried. Well done, imouto.
TwoBitWriter

I'm considering changing formats a bit. Seeing as the Star Wars game that Wukei is running is actually doing well.

I'm thinking about making the game more freeform. Navigating through all the rules and setting up maps for the PBP format is an awful lot of effort.

Would everyone be okay with keeping things more freeform, with their character sheets as something of a general guide? Like, no die rolls or anything like that, just roleplaying with a guide.
The Bushranger

I wouldn't mind one way or the other. Maybe rolling for combat but otherwise freeform?
TwoBitWriter

My only single concern is how hard it is to get battle maps together. I would rather keep this solid to the rules, but am afraid it will bog down the game too much because of the natural limits of the PBP format.
Destro Yersul

Aye, maps are a pain in the arse. Either way is fine.
Moon_Called

*shrugs* I'm not picky either way.
The Bushranger

Either way then. Smile
TwoBitWriter

Alright, enough stalling on my part.

We will stick to a rules-strict format, with dice rolling and such.

I will work on the opening narrative and post it soon.

Forgive the delay.
The Bushranger

Sweet!
Very Happy
TwoBitWriter

Game is up!

http://enupnion.myfastforum.org/sutra638207.php#638207

I can't do a map yet, because I don't have the file on me...

For now, have your first post describing your actions and roll initiative.
Lex-kat

Here's my character:  Krysta Ventrilli
TwoBitWriter

Okay guys, I will be updating today after work.

It turns out I can't access any of my image hosting sites at work, so I'm unable to link to the battlemap.

As such, I can't really get that post going until I am able to upload the map.

I will do it first thing tonight, after I get home from work.
The Bushranger

Cursed web blockers!

No problem man, we're paitent.

@V Thought so, but didn't wish to make the assumption.  Laughing
Destro Yersul

Argyros is Male, for what that's worth.
TwoBitWriter

I'm so sorry for the long delays. I was busy last night and didn't notice Apeofflight's post.

Hopefully this will be the last such delay.
Lex-kat

Krysta's backstory:

In Elder's Grove, everything was great, for some. But not for Krysta. She had lived on the streets her entire life, and everytime she thought she could break free of this place, something would happen and she'd be back on the streets, plying her trade, thievery.

That is until she met some scouts from the Dunhardown Empire. They promised her wealth in exchange for helping Emperor Tonaro and his men get into the city.

She quickly agreed.

After Elder's Grove had fallen, Krysta was brought forth before the Emperor. He smiled down at her.

I have no use for a traitorous bitch as you. He sneered. Take her away, and brand her as the traitor she is.

What!! was all she had time to say as one of the guards beside her hit her just below the ribs, forcing the air out of her, then the other smashed her across the face.

When she awoke, she found herself chained down on a table, the left side of her face was burning, and... She suddenly roared with anger. They cut off my tail!!!

She was thrown in with the rest of the gladiatorial slaves. At first, she was constantly under attack, but she survived. No one wanted to kill her, but they did wish to make her life hell.

As the fights took more and more lives, she survived, though rarely any lent her aid during the fights.

At first, she fought only for herself. But realizing that she may need these people to survive longer, she began to help them, and reluctantly, they began to accept it.

Thoughts??
TwoBitWriter

I like it. I also like that you managed to find a way to get rid of the hated Tiefling tail! Smile

Sorry for the lack of updates, even though we've been ready to proceed since Monday. I meant to do it Tuesday night, but got distracted, and I was too busy last night.

I'ma horrible GM..

Tonight... I promise.
The Bushranger

No worries man. Better quality over quantity. Smile
The Bushranger

Psst. MC. Cobolt's in the other game.
Either that or Erin loses a round in the surprise that her elven friend has been replaced by alien tentacle-girl. Razz

Gonna try to update....

I'm uh... I've been bad. Haven't really checked enu or giant for several days...

Worst part is... I haven't cared.

I think that is a bad sign.  Sad
The Bushranger

I need 2ccs of caring, stat!
