Tyranny of Dragons: Hoard of the Dragon Queen

Recommended Posts

Daton will offer daggers and slings to the children.

 

"I know it's scary, but if we're jumped again I want you to be as ready to defend yourself as you can be... Be careful with those knives, they can be very sharp. Do you think you can handle it?"

 

Daton will then extend his handaxe to Cuth.

 

"Think you're in good enough condition to handle this if it comes down to it?"

 

He will also stash one of the daggers on his belt, and address the parents.

 

"We can talk as we walk, but we need to know what's happening and what we risk expecting. Tell us as much as you can, and worry not. We'll do all we can to keep you safe."

Rolen does a great job entertaining the kids, bringing a smile to their mother's face.

 

Daton then tries to get everyone back on task, doling out the weapons.

 

Cuth waves you off. "Sir, I'm not going to be able to use that one. If you please, I'll just carry my littlest one. He'd slow us down too much if we let him walk."

 

(OOC - the kids are too small and young to really help with the fighting They'll take the weapons and use them in case of the unthinkable).

Linan tells you the quickest way to the Keep is the street. It heads east, then branches to the side street to the Keep.

 

"We have seen kobolds, humans, giant lizards and we think there is a dragon up one the air."

 

At the thought of that, she shudders.

 

She continues. "The town is in chaos. Fires are burning everywhere. I fear the way to the Keep may be blocked soon."

 

(OOC I'm going to post some maps as soon as I can).

"Want me to scout out ahead?"

 

If there is a keep, and the city is under attack, is the keep entrance blockaded?

The top map shows Greenest among the cities of the Sword Coast.

 

The second is a map of Greenest. The important area is #1, which is the Keep.

 

Other points of note are a mill, stream, and temple to Chauntea, which those of you who had ties to Greenest will know about, and where they are.

I will retrieve my bolt from the kobold if I can. Wipe it & my axe off & place the bolt back into it's case. Shouldering my crossbow. I grab my shield & my axe & ask "Point the way to the keep, we'll get yah there!"

 

Being a merc, Klaus really had no home other then the one in the Mtn (insert name) that was overrun by goblins & other foul beasts. He lost his wife & 2 kids in that raid, he wasn't going to lose this family.

 

I will take lead but will stay near the family.

"Aye. I agree" We should surround the family if we can & just make our way there the fastest way possible"

You make your way along the road (fastest). You move about 15 minutes when you are spotted by a a group of pillagers: 3 kobolds come to harass you from behind, and 4 human mercenary types block your way from the front.

 

The humans don't seem to be wearing a cohesive uniform, just whatever clothes and bits of armor they own. They are all wearing black arm bands.

 

One steps forward. "Well well, lookie what we'd got here boys! Some do-gooders trying to act like heroes. Let's show'em what we do to interlopers. I got dibs on that sweet woman..."

He cracks a disgusting smile, liking his lips and barking at Linan.

 

(OOC roll initiative. It is getting darker. Due to the twilight and fires, there is at least dim light. -5 perception checks related to vision (except Darkvision within range). The road here is 20 feet wide. The mercenary speaker is 20 feet away, his chums are 30 feet away. The kobolds are in the other direction, 30 feet away. Scattered trees line the road, big enough to give half cover. Where there is no tree, there are light bushes/hedges here and there which can lightly obscure someone).

Do I recognize the black arm bands as anything? (It's my background thing)

The arm bands, not specific enough yet.

Don't worry, that part of your background will have a chance to shine, I guarantee!

      So you have seen the minis but what about the rules doc? Well, here is just one example of the art quality thanks to the incredible talents of April Prime! Amazingly, this is still work in progress, but she is working on art for every dog and a few bonus pieces as well....hmmm..maybe art prints should be available...


      Here's a small piece of Dungeons and Doggies fiction to enjoy! Every mini will have an associated 'icon character' pre generated in the rules pack,and for the Cleric role we have Cerysse, gentle but determined protector of her friends. Many thanks to Kate, our writer, for providing this and many other story pieces for the project! We will follow up with a rules preview for the Companion Domain soon!

      Hello everyone!
      Last week, I posted pictures of one of the two D&D adventuring parties I am DMing (http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/81365-my-dnd-adventure-group/). These were minis I painted about a year ago. As there is a second party, I wanted to post some pictures of it as well.
       
      I painted the second batch of minis quite recently, I hope you like them. Here they are :
       
      "60071: Eccardian Drovenge" is Alrune, a Tiefling druid who was raised by Ents. Taking a step back from it, I think tha the blue wasn't the best choice, I should probably have gone for brown on those blue parts. I love the mini but with all those little details it was quite a challenge to paint :

       
      "03828: Crusader Champion (Sword and Shield)" is Guy Saint-Hubert, a human butter maker who decided to become a paladin of the goddess of death, justice and night to avenge his family :

       
      "03476: Kasham, Reptus Wizard" is Kigozaloph Jeanpatrine, a Silver Dragonborn necromancer. I was worried about the metallic paint to make his skin, but i'm happy with the result :

       
      "14567: BSG Hok Sergeant" is Miroslav Bulldosex (sigh), a Halfling fishmonger who decided to quit the civilisation and chose a barbarian life. All the pink marks on his skin are supposed to be scars but I didn't manage to make it obvious :

       
      "14553: Arthrand Nightblade, Wood Elf Sergeant" is Polodriell, an Elf ex-soldier. He lived in a jungle, that's why his arrows are made with parrot feathers. I couldn't manage to make his eyes look good because of the cloak  :

      I'm playing a Firbolg Druid in a campaign and couldn't find any mini to represent him.  So I came across this Longtooth Barbarian and decided to convert one. I removed the sword on the back for a backpack, and I gave him a Scimitar.

      This is really sweet and a great introduction to Dungeons and Dragons. I’m kind of astonished — and delighted — that the news site Vox put it up.

      About this project
      The forest is a place of mystery and danger, where the wild things are lurking in the shadowed underbrush with hungry eyes, but also where the fair folk flit and fly through sun-dappled glades. From Grimm's fairy tales to Tolkien's lovely Lothlorien, menacing Mirkwood, and forlorn Fangorn, there are few places for adventure more iconic than among the tall trees and verdant vales of the forest!
      In that spirit, Legendary Games is pleased to present a new hardback adventure accessory for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and 5E, the Forest Kingdom Campaign Compendium! Step under the shadowed boughs of the forest realm to find a wild world of magic, mystery, monsters, and more! From the misty boreal taiga of the cold northern reaches to wondrous glades of enchanting fey beauty, you'll find this book an encyclopedic resource for running your campaign, including:
      - Two complete wilderness adventures: the savage barbarian epic Cold Mountain and a deadly fey pursuit in Horns of the Hunted!
      - Over 50 new spells and magic items, from bloodspear and call woodland beings to the scout's spyglass, plow of the abundant harvest, and staff of the fey queen! 
      - Three dozen new character options, including new sorcerer bloodlines, cavalier orders, feats, archetypes, and more, from Feral Companion and Silent Shade of the Umbral Wood to the fey hunter ranger and darkwolf druid!
      - Over 30 new fey and forest monsters, from the boreal wight and stromkarl nixie to the mighty chernobog! 
      - Eight ready-to-play pregenerated characters with detailed histories and personalities, perfect as allies, rivals, or playable PCs!
      - Rich and immersive rules for fey-themed haunts and integrating fey into the campaign from personal relationships to world-altering faerie rumors, ripples, and ruptures that turn the natural world of mortals upside down!
      The Forest Kingdom Campaign Compendium starts by combining the entire River Kings product line from Legendary Games into a single volume, edited and polished and many available in print for the first time, including all of the following products:
      Beasts of Legend: Boreal Bestiary
      Beasts of Legend: Coldwood Codex
      Cold Mountain
      Conquering Heroes: Pregenerated Characters
      Faerie Mysteries
      Faerie Passions
      Horns of the Hunted
      Legendary Villains: Dark Druids
      Treasury of the Kingdom
      These fantastic supplements by all-star authors like Jason Nelson, Matt Goodall, Tim Hitchcock, Neil Spicer, Todd Stewart, Russ Taylor, Alistair J. Rigg, Clinton J. Boomer, Julian Neale, N. Jolly, Tom Phillips, and Linda Zayas-Palmer are classics from Legendary Games and with them alone we could create a hardcover compilation of around 240 pages! All of the above material is complete and ready to go for both Pathfinder and 5th Edition! 
      That would make a pretty cool book on its own, but we also have some amazing brand-new bonus content we have ready for our stretch goals below, which might well push this book over 300 pages! Almost all writing and art for these bonus goals is already complete, and even if we don't quite hit our stretch goals, these products still will be completed and will be available for purchase separately, but if we hit those goals all of his great bonus content will be included in the compilation and backers will be able to download the individual PDFs after the Kickstarter ends!
