[DnD 5E] Talos: City of Intrigue and Adventure!

Recommended Posts

Can Paladins still heal? We seem to be short a healbot. And Paladins can (in other editions) both smash heads and heal.

 

Right now we've got:

Me - Something Something Something Dark Side

Baph - Beatstick

Pcktlnt - Skillmonkey

 

EDIT: AND WHAT ARE YOU STILL DOING UP AT THIS HOUR, YOUNG LADY??

-_- What? it's only like 2am. I'm always on this late.

 

And I can do paladin. I can do smashy paladin! I do Char paladin all the time - a smashy type might be fun! Maybe I'll do the big dumb devout, I always loved that...

Hm... It'll be interesting to play a paladin around your character. After all, how dumb must one be to legitimately not notice a worshiper of the Elder Gods in their own party? How long can you last before becoming so blatant in your devilry that even the dumbest paladin notices?

 

Hm...

 

Rolls are (2d6+6) 14 15 12 16 11 13

 

Really good roll IMO, even if nothing's stellar. Lots of good stats, even without an 18 - good layout for a paladin... Might go for a human, get that little bit of guaranteed control. Hrrm.

 

I'm thinking

 

Str: 16

Con: 15

Dex: 13

 

Wis: 12

Int: 11

Cha: 14

 

A charismatic guy, if not clever - he's got magnetism, if not the smarts to use it... If I wanted to be statistically dumb, I could go for something that docks points in int, although I probably shouldn't, considering that would knock out casting, as I understand it. Maybe I'll dock wisdom instead? Are there even any races that drop Wis?

 

Huh. I should probably dig up the 5e players guide...

*blink**blink* Yeah, I think I'll go hunt up the PHP before I go any further, then.

 

edit: Oh wow, this is... expansive. That's why I wish they'd let us gen characters at cons... Or even have the books on hand to flip through...

 

Still thinking human, human or halfelf. Paladin of devotion, obs.

I didn't notice any minuses on any of the 5e races.

Stats are a huge part of the mechanic.  A penalty would be brutally cruel.

I'm going to read through the PHB this weekend, since I haven't done anything since early play testing when you only had 4 levels of stuff available and almost no options.  I hear they've done a little more since then.

Man you guys sure get chatty after I go to sleep.

 

Oh, since dsmiles is switching to a warlock, could I switch to the rogue class (still want to be a swashbuckler-ish type)

Rogue is fine.  No one is locked in until the first post in the playing.  And even then only until you die a tragic and/or heroic death at the hands of the DM.

 

Can Paladins still heal? We seem to be short a healbot. And Paladins can (in other editions) both smash heads and heal.

 

Paladins have lay on hands which allow them to heal 5hp/level.  They can also use 5pts of healing to cure disease or neutralize poison.  Hmm, rules don't say whether they the pool refreshes after a long or short rest.  Might have to look that up.  Additionally, each character can rest.  After a short rest, a PC can can spend one or more hit dice to heal.  Roll your hit die, add your con modifier and heal that many points.  Repeat as long as you have unspent hit dice.  After a long rest you hit dice replenish and you regain all lost hp. 

 

So you don't need a heal monkey, you just have to rest more often (short rest is 1 hour, long is 8 hours).  If th DM lets you, that is. :devil:

If you're going to lay on hands, just make sure you buy me a pint at the tavern (preferably before the obligatory tavern burning bar fight happens) first.

Judas, Half-Orc Warlock


----Appearance----

 

Judas looks like a hot mess. He is a lanky, rail-thin Half-Orc with stringy, graying, black hair, and intense, feverish red eyes. He wears a patchy beard and thin moustache. Scarred across every inch of his body are ritual writings in a cramped, incomprehensible language. You're not entirely sure how he reached some of those places, and wrote so perfectly, but they are definitely written in his hand. When he casts a spell, parts of the writing glow with a black-violet light.

 

----Backstory----

 

Judas was once a farmer. Until the day he wasn't...

 

The Half-Orc called Judas worked, and worked, and worked. He paid his taxes, and loved his family. He ate, he drank (sometimes a lot), and he made merry (mostly when he drank). He had a wife, and two sons, and they were the center of his world. Until the day he found It. It was in his field, in a corner normally reserved for his wife's small garden of root vegetables. A lump of stone, worked by man's hand. It was formless, but It had form. He kept It. He cleaned It. It became important to Judas. He took It to the woods on the edge of his field, and built It a hut. A small hut, with a small, stone altar, on which he placed It. He spoke to It, he prayed to It. He did this daily, instead of his devotions to Berei (Goddess of Home, Family, and Agriculture).

 

One day, It answered. Judas took It away from the altar, and into the mountains. There Judas found an ancient ruin, with strange glyphs carved in the crumbling stone. The glyphs showed him much that was previously unknown to Judas, and Judas took it all in. Judas remained at the ruins for about twelve years, alone. He discovered a well. A well of worlds, and in that well was an intelligence. That intelligence was It. It had a name, a name that could only be spoken by the chosen few. Yog-Sothoth. Yog-Sothoth, Aforgomon, Bolothamogg, Tawil At-U'mr, the Lurker at the Threshold, the Opener of the Way, the All-in-One and the One-in-All. Yog-Sothoth, the gate, the key, and the guardian of the ways. Judas looked into the well and saw great globes of light massing toward the opening, and not alone these, but the breaking apart of the nearest globes, and the protoplasmic flesh that flowed blackly outward to join together and form that eldritch, hideous horror from outer space, that spawn of the blankness of primal time, that tentacled amorphous monster which was the lurker at the threshold, whose mask was as a congeries of iridescent globes, the noxious Yog-Sothoth, who froths as primal slime in nuclear chaos beyond the nethermost outposts of space and time!

 

Judas made his way to Talos, sensing a greater purpose, and earning his way as a wandering healer. It was with him, It was always with him...

 

----Personality----

 

Quiet to the point of near-constant silence, Judas spent many years away from any sort of social interaction, and has a hard time in social environments.  He plays his cards close to his vest, and rarely does anyone see more of him than he allows them to. He often gets lost in his own head, sometimes for hours on end, and is completely oblivious to his surroundings during those times. You can sometimes see something, like he's keeping a secret, or has a private joke, that no one else knows.

So, given my earlier request, I imagine the inn I'm in is somewhere on the border of Old Town and The Narrows? Just trying to get my bearings, here.

I have my character back story done and I'm waffling between human and half-orc. Also...I'm afraid to role my dice. A good majority of the time, my first roll will be two 1's. -__-

An area between the Docks, Old Town and the Narrows.  I have a sketch of the map that I can take a picture of and upload for reference at some point.

      Since many games have stalled waiting on one player, do the "regulars" have any interest in Rise of the Runelords?
       
      I have read through 80% of it.
      I'd be OK if you've played some of part I, but not read it.
       
      If there is interest for 4 players, I'll put up character creation rules.

      About this project
       
      Arcana Note is a portable, rugged leather notebook filled with 5E tools such as character sheets, cheat sheets, a collapsing dice tray, a ruler that measures game feet, a mini GM screen, grid paper, condition/spell/item cards, card pages and more. The inside pages contain templates for tracking sessions, NPCs, organizations and locations within your campaign. 
       
      Whether you are a player or a GM, Arcana Note provides a dragon's hoard of supplies to help you with your 5E games. 
      The kit comes in a long-lasting leather journal that is crafted to survive many epic campaigns.  The handy size allows you to easily bring it to your sessions by throwing it in your backpack or car. It also takes up less space at the table. The strong leather covering protects your sheets from tearing, bending and arcane missiles.  The inner pages are designed to streamline your games so you can spend more time adventuring and less time looking up information or printing resources. Arcana Note is a great piece of loot for both new players as well as veterans looking to raise the armor class of their character sheets. 
       
       
        Arcana Note contains the following items:
      One A5 size leather journal made of saddle leather. It develops a rich patina giving it a rugged, weathered look the more you use it. It's soft and smooth like Gnome skin but tough enough to wear as armor. Collapsible dice tray that fits snugly within the journal. No more rolling your dice off the side of the table and trying to claim it landed on a 20.  A high quality, glossy UV coated mini GM screen that slides smoothly into the pockets of the notebook.  Custom character sheets that were designed to be streamlined and clean. Extra character sheet included to roll up yet another Chaotic "Neutral" character. Cheat sheets such as equipment tables, light source diagrams, rules, and more so you can stop borrowing your GM's PHB. Session note pages to help keep you organized.  Campaign specific pages to track timeline, NPCs, locations, organizations, deities and more. Grid paper so you can draw pretty maps. A ruler that measures game distances. For when you don't have a battle grid or your low intelligence Barbarian has a hard time counting squares.  Condition cards. Lay the card out in front as a reminder.  A spell slot card to track spell usage.  50 blank spell cards to place in in the card pages for your own personal spell book. 30 blank item cards to manage loot or hand out to players. Ten card holder pages that hold up to 80 cards.  A zip pouch for holding small tokens & pencils. Six divider tabs to help stay organized. An A5 plastic divider that can be used for dry/wet erase notes. Ten dry erase initiative card tents to hang from your GM screen or place in front of each player. The 6 hole A5 binder paper is easily found in various styles to order online and we will be providing the digital PDFs so you can print your own pages at any time. We will also be providing refill pages at a reasonable price after the Kickstarter if you don't want to print your own. 
      Please note that metal dice will eventually wear through the dice tray and will cause damage. If you have metal dice, we suggest using the tray to hold the dice then rolling on the thicker leather of the journal instead.
