PostPosted: Wed Mar 12, 2008 9:39 am    Post subject: Citadel of the Demon Prince  Reply with quote

Since I'm going on vacation starting friday, I'd like to try my hand at DM'ing and we could use some high(er)-level dungeon crawling around here. So I plan to run a slightly adapted version of Citadel of the Demon Prince, a published adventure I found and thought could be fun.

It will be set in the Forgotten Realms, more specifically in Damara to the north. It is primarily a good old-fashioned dungeon crawl with limited NPC interaction, and the premise is a good old exercise in killing evil cultists. The book also warns about a few slightly disturbing and dark moments, and I hope to emphasise a bit on that dark atmosphere. I'm going to incorporate material from various source books to expand and adapt this adventure a bit, hopefully making it more interesting and unique.

I need 5-6 players, who don't already know this adventure and believe themselves able to post regularly, preferably once every 1 or 2 days. Characters should start out at ECL 12 (with 72000 XP, halfways between ECL 12 and 13). Starting gold will be 99000 gp. We'll use 30 point buy for ability scores, and hit points are max at first level, average thereafter.

Aside from a normally balanced party, I wish atleast one character to be a good-aligned cleric, paladin or similarly holy character, as well as atleast one druid or otherwise nature-oriented character. Generally I expect the characters to be the kind you'd expect to go hunting evil demon cultists, for whatever reason (good or not). Feel free to take the setting (Damara, Narfell and the Great Dale are probably most relevant) into account when making your character.

I will accept anything from the 3.5 edition core books, the FRCS, the Complete * series, Frostburn and Tome of Magic. Please ask if you wish to use other material.

If you're interested, please post what kind of character you'd like to play. Race, classes and a basic summary of the character concept. Just enough to make a balanced party. Once we have a proper party of 5 or 6 players you can send me your character sheets by PM. I wish to keep the finer details of the sheets unknown to the other players at first, hence by PM. The sheets should include a bit on the character's background and personality, not necessarily anything overly big and complex, just so I can better adapt the adventure to the characters.

I will provide each player with a reason for their character to get involved in the plot, one that makes sense in the context of the story and setting. I'll send this through PM to keep it personal and only known to the player and me to begin with. This will be based on your character's background, personality and stats. It can be discussed, naturally.

So, in summary:

- 5 or 6 players
- Start at ECL 12 (72000 XP)
- 99000 in starting gold
- 30 point buy for abilities
- Average hit points, max at first level
- Atleast one holy character and one nature-oriented character
- Otherwise a normally balanced party
- The setting is south-eastern Damara, bordering Narfell and the Great Dale (FR)
- The adventure will have limited NPC interaction, it's mostly hack & slash
- Send character sheets by PM to me
- You will be given a personal reason for getting involved, depending on your character.

It think that was all. Anyone interested?

Give me a chance to get to my books at home and count me in. I'm thinking something Arcane at the moment, but that might change... I've also got the idea for a duskblade in the back of my head, provided I can get some material on the class.

Anyways, count me in!

I could give this a shot. I've got a couple books that aren't on your list that I'd like to use, though I can live without them. I addition, I know very little about Forgotten Realms, so anything relevant would have to be explained. Or I could look it up on Wikipedia.

At any rate, books I would like to use but that aren't on the list:
Draconomicon (couple of feats and an item or two)
Dungeonscape (Dancing Lanterns are made of win)
Magic Item Compendium (three guesses what for...)

Also, the Signature Traits in the DMGII, while they provide no mechanical advantage, are kind of cool. And I think the Forgotten Realms are high magic... so I might use one or two.

Oh, and for the record I'd be playing a swashbuckling scoundrel type. Though more 'Indiana Jones' than 'Captain Jack Sparrow', personality wise.

I'm always up for a game. Put me up there for an arcanist... Most likely. Might possibly run a more rougeish one though... Naaaah.

But I do like the idea of a caster I have been toying with lately...

Off to go research then...

*yoinks a spot*
I'll probably play the holy character, but he/she'll be... gritty.
I don't like the typical preachy type, but the type who says "DIE! PRAISE *insert name here*!"
We'll see how it goes.

Kinda been running a bit low on the PbP side since all but one campaign over at GitP has pretty much crumbled to dust, so I need to 'refill the tanks,' so to speak.

That in mind, I call dibs on the naturalist!
The Holt Warden from Complete Champion seems particularly interesting, so combine that with druid and... Halfling... Very Happy
So, basically the kind of druid that is extra Freaking ULTRA tree-hugger.

Oh, that makes one question, though - the PrC just so happens to be closely tied to some druidic organization called Guardians of the Green. Heck, it's a bloody entry requirement to be 'chosen' by them. Would you be able to manipulate that organization to something more Faerūnian? I don't know if there are any druid organizations in Faerūn, but making one up on the spot just for an adventure might seem... Bleh.

Stats up this afternoon, I promise.

Awesome, seems like we have a lot of interest in this... and already enough players.

Artemis, Duskblade will be ok, if that's what you go for

Destro, I see no problem with those books, so go for it. In general I'll probably allow most things, I'm just trying to avoid the most dramatic variant rules and things. Also, don't worry about the setting, I can fill you in on anything important if/where needed.

And Chilli, it so happens that one of Faerun's most powerful druidic circles lives just next door, in the Great Dale, and they aren't exactly the most welcoming of druids, so perhaps they'd fit well. I'll have to look more closely at the Holt Warden, but that'd be awesome.

I don't expect to start this until saturday or something, so don't stress over the characters. I hadn't really expected this much interest so quickly Smile

Sent a draft of my character sheet already. All I really need is items and 7 more feats. Unless there's something else I'm missing.

It looks ok at a quick glance, Kyrian. Just remember some background as well. I'll take a closer look later, to see if there are any particular problems.

Alright, thanks Deadly.

I'll work on my character sheet in my spare time, which means whenever I'm not at work. Should have it in by... well, Friday at latest. Probably sooner. Background will likely deal with where he got his more interesting equipment and what he's like. *goes to make character*

Is there a vacant spot?

I am inclined to try an illiterate heavy magic user.

I'm sorry, Draken, but we already have 6 players, and I think 7 would be too many. Seems like there's a whole lot of interest in this kind of thing however, as I had to turn down Sophistemon too. Perhaps someone else should start up another high-level dungeon crawl?

***

Also, from a look at the characters we have so far, we could probably use one more combat oriented character. Artemis, are you going for Duskblade?

Well, my cleric as of the moment is extremely melee focused... I've still got good spells, but they'll mostly be going towards me.

I'm assuming the 30 point buy for abilities includes the bonuses for fourth, eighth and twelfth level. If I'm wrong, and I still get those bonuses, could you let me know?

Other than that, my sheet is almost done. Just need equipment, backstory, and to calculate various item dependant things.

I think the standard method is to add those separately since they use a different system altogether... at least, that's what I've always seen.
And did with my character.

Well, I believe my character is finished.

Except for the back story.

Irruvian Stormcloud.

He needs some backstory, which I will work on tomorrow (today? It's late/early) but I offer all the numbery stuff for review.

Edit by Vael: Link removed. Art, he said he didn't want us posting links...

Ah... you do get those 3 bonus points. So 30 points, and then 3 more. The last 3 points are not weighted either, so raising a score above 14 costs only one point after the first 30 points have been distributed. Hope that clears it all up.

Nope, not you Smile I'm still waiting for Terumitsu's sheet, and I'm currently looking over the last details of Artemis' sheet. Kyrian and Vael both need some background too.

That's the current status
