    Campaign Help - need ideas

    Ok so, my aussie friends and us play RPGs via Roll20 every friday and we take turns GMing. After a bit of a hiatus we've come back to my game, which is based in my world I call the Land of Oden. It's essentially high fantasy, low tech (though some exists from the 'previous' world, it's considered anathema) - you've got your typical racial archetypes. The basic backstory is there are a lot of independent type holdings, and most people belong to a Guild, if they have a trade. Guilds keep the areas safe, caravans going, food grown, and animals, well husbanded. Anyway, so the PCs are all Guild Journeymen off on their Journeyman's quest (a ritual they all have to go through before being considered full time Guild members). By tradition the quest is secret - they can ask for help, but not say "I'm on X quest, help me find Y" kind of thing. Lots of random quests are easy enough to insert - but here's the thing. I didn't think too far ahead when I decided they were on their Journeyman's quests... and all of them are very different >< I'm having trouble tying them all together =/ I was hoping maybe one of you guys would have some ideas to help out! Quests: Dariac - Dragon-Slayer (kinda defunct ancient order as Dragons no longer exist): find a red herring (deliberately made it so basically it can be anything) Althoniel (Healer): has to find a special plant known to flower perhaps only every 11 years (provided random pic) Mud - (Hunter): find the White Stag (not necessarily kill, just needs proof) Rosen - (Wanderer - essentially woods guide/surveyor type): needs to survey Khurash Dhenfor (an area no one's been in for a generation, give or take) Rincwind - (Mage) - survive to the Guild seat, at the top of the Mountain (planning a surprise for this one, once he gets there) Heldin/!s͎tchp - (Elf) - not really the same, his background is he was cursed somehow into the shape of a falcon (!s͎tchp) and ended up travelling with Mud as a companion for a long time, until a recent spate of magic in a Necromancer's Lair seemed to give him the ability to shift, at least temporarily back to his Elven form (it's still somewhat involuntary) So while this can be an ongoing campaign for a while - and there will be a big Baddie slowing them down etc - I need some way to tie these together >< How do I get myself out of this pickle?! I am a little loathe to simply let them all find out everything they're looking for is in the same place... that seems... just wrong. Idk =/ Help? lol
  2. Arikiel

    We are building a religion

    Hello. I'm seeking to round out the pantheon for my custom world. While the major powers (greater gods) are known there's still a vast plethora of lesser gods that aren't detailed. As such I'm seeking your contributions. What would you be the god of if you were part of a pantheon? Create your own lesser god using the format below and I'll add you to my world. Name Sphere of Control Alignment: ? Holy Symbol: ? Domains: ? Animals: ? Favored Weapon: ? Raiment: ? Color(s): ? Holy Days: ? Daily Prayers: ? Sacrifice: ? Place of Worship: ? Appearance: ? Details: ? Here's mine. Arikiel God/Goddess of Balance, The Walker of the Way Alignment: True Neutral. Holy Symbol: The sun and moon entwined. Domains: Darkness (moon, night), Sun (day, light), Weather (seasons). Animals: Water fowl (that fly, swim, and walk). Favored Weapon: Dagger (both a tool and a weapon that can be used in melee or at range). Raiment: A chain shirt or breast plate over scholar's robes. Color(s): Contrasting colors (black/white, blue/orange, green/red, or purple/yellow). Holy Days: The spring and autumn equinoxes. Special holidays during eclipses. Celebrated with wild revelry followed by quiet meditation. Daily Prayers: Meditation at sunrise and sunset. Sacrifice: Personally crafted items on the half-moon. Place of Worship: Anywhere. Appearance: Arikiel commonly appears as an androgynous, mixed blooded (half-elf, half-orc, etc), individual of indeterminate age. Details: To everything there is a season. Arikiel embraces all aspects existence. Seeing that there is a time and a place for all things but avoids being overcome by extremes. Followers of Arikiel seek to be well balanced individuals with a diverse range of skills. Both scholars and warriors they consider all view points and act as moderators in society. Most all are multi-classed in some way. Temples tend to be in places where elements are seen to meet. Such as sea caves, cliff sides, marshes, etc. The church has a loose hierarchy that honors tradition but remains adaptable.
  3. So I currently DM a 5e D&D game. One of my favorite things to do is create my own magic items. The armory sets from Bones 3 seem to me to be perfect candidates to have accompanying RPG stats! To that end, I made up the following. Feel free to steal/tweak these if you like them! Ashen Zweihander Greatsword This magic greatsword adds a +2 bonus to attack and damage rolls. Its hilt is fashioned to look like the skull of a ram. When drawn, flakes of ash fall from the blade. When you hit a creature with the ashen zweihander, you deal an extra 2d6 necrotic damage. If a creature hits you, you may use a reaction to cast hellish rebuke. This power recharges every day at dusk. If you kill a creature with the ashen zweihander, its body is reduced to ashes. The only means of bringing such a creature back to life is via either a true resurrection or a wish spell. Axe of Death Battleaxe This magic weapon is shaped to appear as if the wings of the Angel of Death form the axe head. It adds a +3 bonus to attack and damage rolls made with it. Any creature you hit with the ace that isn't a construct, ooze, or an undead takes an additional 2d8 necrotic damage. In addition, if after you strike a creature it is reduced to 100 hit points or fewer, it must immediately make a DC 17 Constitution saving throw or die. A creature that succeeds this saving throw takes 7d8 necrotic damage. Bonesplinter Reaver Greataxe The haft of this greataxe is fashioned from the bleached bone of a long-dead creature. This magic weapon grants you a +1 bonus to attack and damage rolls made with it. It scores a critical hit on a roll of 19 or 20. When you score a critical hit with the axe, the creature you hit must succeed a DC 14 Constitution saving throw or suffer a severed limb. Succeeding the saving throw results in no additional effect. Crown of the Dust King Wondrous Item This crown was the possession of the King of Dust. It has absorbed some of that being’s power. While wearing this crown, you gain some of the properties of undeath. You do not require food or drink, do not need to breathe, and are immune to poison damage and the poisoned condition. You are able to command lesser undead by your sheer presence. As an action, you may attempt to assert your control over any ghouls, skeletons, or zombies within 30 feet of you that you can see. Make a Charisma check. The DC is equal to 10 + the creature’s challenge rating. If you succeed, the undead is under your direct control. You can issue commands as a bonus action on your turn. Any undead within 60 feet of you, whether under your control or not, has advantage on saving throws to resist the effects of being turned. Dust King’s Aegis Shield This magic shield once belonged to the King of Dust. The shield grants you resistance to radiant damage while you bear it. In addition you have resistance to bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing damage from nonmagical weapons wielded by good-aligned creatures. Graveyard Shield Shield This shield is marked by the power of death. You can force a creature adjacent to you to fail a death saving throw. This power recharges at midnight. In addition, while the shield is in your possession you cannot suffocate as a result of being buried. Finally, when you kill a creature that is within 5 feet of you, you gain 10 temporary hit points. Hammer of Doom Maul The head of this magic weapon looks like it is fashioned from a rough slab of a tombstone. The fangs of some creature adorn one end. You gain a +2 bonus to attack and damage rolls made with this magic weapon. You may cast bane as an action. This power recharges at dawn. Reaping Greataxe Greataxe This greataxe is cold to the touch, like a bone left out in winter. This magic weapon grants you resistance to cold and necrotic damage. As a bonus action, you can cause sickly green energy to wreathe the head of the axe, changing all damage it deals to necrotic damage. Another bonus action changes the damage back.

    Homebrewed CAV: Swallowtail

    The Swallowtail is a heavy recon chassis produced by Borsig-Spline for the Adon Economic Confederation. Roughly the size of the Mantis, the Swallowtail sacrifices armour for what is an impressive speed for a CAV its size, preferring to flank enemy forces for a surgical strike with its twin Herker heavy PBGs.

  5. Orcs! Humans. They come. They breed. They rape the land. Steal its magic. The glaciers are moving. The world is growing colder. The sun is growing dim. They don't see it. But we do. As do the rest of the Elder Races. The Naiads, deep in the water. The Centaurs deep in their forests. The Trolls, in their caves. The Giants, high in their mountains. The Kobolds of the deserts, and the Goblins of the swamps. The Dwarves and Elves are retreating, leaving this world. We cannot, for we have no powerful magics. We are Orcs! We will stand and we will fight, when no others will. Others will come, as long as we are at the forefront. They must, for if this world perishes, we all perish. For many generations, our tribe has been kept as a standing army by a half-Naiad sorceress. She is vile, but we serve her because she works to save the world from the humans. We are branded as slaves, but she cannot hold us, should we choose to leave. We are Orcs! Her plans are nearing completion, and we are her most formidable warband. We strike at the heart of a human settlement tonight to obtain an artifact. She tells us it looks like a star with three points, and that she must have it. It is vital to her success. We must succeed, our lives, our kin, our world, everything we hold dear is at stake. We will succeed, for we are Orcs! None can stand in our way! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Orcs! is a fantasy campaign using the Guardians of Order BESM: The Slayers d20 mechanics. It is intended for up to 10 players at a time, and if there are more, they will wait in the queue. The link (at the top) is to a folder in my Google Drive which contains all the pertinent information for the game. It is intended as a dramatic comdey, and can vary wildly from one extreme to the other. I will warn you in advance that I...borrow...liberally from Stan Nicholls Orcs: First Blood and Orcs: Bad Blood. They were, in fact, the sole sources of inspiration for the campaign. (So, if you've read them, no spoilers, please.) Yes, the campaign and the book start off the same, but where the campaign goes from there is entirely up to the players. The game will start once I have a minimum of 6 active players. I would prefer a full warband of 10, so spread the word. I will also be running this game live (once I get home), and may keep journals from both groups to share with each other at the end. Each character will need a voice color, and your full character history and character questionnaire will be public knowledge. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Active CharactersAuberon redambrosia fishnjeeps Spike Arc724 TGP Queued Characters Any questions may be asked openly here, or privately via PM.
