Sunless Citadel 5e pbp

Recommended Posts

The_Sunless_Citadel.jpg

 

As I wanna get more experience DMing 5e before ReaperCon this year & flipping through Tales of the Yawning Portal, I thought I'd see if there was any interest in running a Sunless Citadel 5e game here. I loved the adventure in 3.5, it was actually one of the last sitdown @ home games I ran before my friends/gamers all scattered across the state/area.

 

Let me know here if you are interested.

Basic 5e rules:  http://dnd.wizards.com/articles/features/basicrules

 

 Basic/PH 5e rules with the options to play the UA ranger or PH ranger & UA artficer. Races can come from the following: PH, Elemental Evil Player's Guide (minus the aracockra & with this being a dungeon crawl, a goliath might not be the best choice either. Sword Coast & Volo's 5e (thou this one needs DM's approval before proceeding.)

 

I will probably set this in the Forgotten Realms as well.

 

Other then that standard character generation. Looking for 5 players.

 

I'd like to start around May 1st.

thanks!

I haven't played 5E since the playtest so I am a bit curious to see how it turned out.  I don't own any of the books so I would have to stick with with the basic classes I see online.

 

Did WOTC ever release 5E as a set?  My 4E and C&C sets look nice on the shelf.

Also if you do a 5e background search on the G, you'll come up with most if not all of the official ones. I'll allow any of the official ones. The basic/PH ones are kinda limited IMHO.

There hasn't really been much in terms of expansion for Backgrounds, aside from the SCAG. (even then a number of them are just very Forgotten Realms-specific variants of PHB backgrounds)

 

IMO there should be some flexibility on what a background brings, especially in terms of the skill proficiencies gained. I don't see every person who was an entertainer before they were an adventurer being proficient in Acrobatics, or every soldier-turned-adventurer be proficient in Intimidation.

But that's up to the DM, when I allow this flexibility I still have final say on whether the suggested customization can work or not.

 

Also I'm not sure what's restrictive about Goliaths.... They're big sure, but they still register as Medium-sized creatures. But I don't think I'll play a Goliath.

My current ideas:

Human paladin (Daton Sungold)

Elf swashbuckler or fighter

Firbolg cleric

Dragonborn sorcerer

Human barbarian

Half-elf monk

I'm game assuming you don't expect instant replies.  Not that it would be a week or anything like that but obviously during the day I am not always constantly online, etc.  but I do check fairly regularly.

I'd like timely replies but no I'm not wanting a post as soon as I get a response up.

 

If SC goes well & the party wants to, I'd also like to move on to Forge of Fury as well, but we'll see how SC goes first.

 

As far as the Goliath, I was thinking more of being enclosed & such, but seeing they are Medium size, that won't be a problem. I wasn't banning them of course. Aarakocra thou has flight at 1st level which is a big advantage. Thus, they aren't allowed. Firbolg is interesting thou as I've always known them to be large size creatures. I see 5e/Volo has them down to medium for PC use.

That shouldn't be a problem Haldir.  I usually check the forums pretty regularly most days provided I'm not completely tied down with work, out of town, etc.  Obviously if I am going to be out of town (or otherwise unavailable for a period of time) I'll also let everyone know ahead of time.

 

No idea on what I want to play yet though, might wait and see what other people select first, but will start tossing some ideas around my head this evening.

I'm down to play.  If you you have extra people who want to play they can take my spot as I'm in two other games right now.

 

Not sure on race or class.  I can pick based on what others take to fill gaps.

 

In backgrounds, the PHB gives the formula for building your own.  I usually don't mind as a DM as long as it is internally consistent (no logger background giving proficiency in Arcane and Religion)

Given the speed at which pbps move, I'm not particularly interested in trying to keep track of spells.  It looks like that leaves me with barbarian, fighter, monk, & rogue as my likely choices.

      It is time to set a course for adventure in your 5th Edition and Pathfinder RPG games with a spectacular set of pirate plunder and aquatic adventure on the seven seas and exotic ports of call with the Pirate Campaign Compendium from Legendary Games! 
      Whether you want to run interludes across the ocean or along the coastal plain or to undertake a full-on nautical campaign, from pure aquatic fantasy to historical high seas adventure, from sea serpents to booming broadsides, you'll find a wealth of amazing accessories in the Pirate Campaign Compendium! The base version of the book comprises a compilation of Legendary Games' full line of Pirate-Plug-Ins for Pathfinder and 5E.
      You'll find FIVE complete adventures ranging from 4th level to 14th level, including the smuggling run gone wrong in Spices and Flesh, the mad captain's hidden harbor in Tarin's Crown, the fast-paced high-seas heist of Raid on the Emperor's Hand, the seething rage of an ancient mystic secret of the seas in Scourge of the Steaming Isle, and an all-out assault on the stronghold of the pirate king in Fort Scurvy!  Dozens of maritime magical items in Treasury of the Fleet, including personal items like the hurricane harpoon and sea lord's tricorne as well as magic items for your ship. A selection of sinister sea monsters in an ever-growing bestiary of the briny blue!  A Pirate Codex of 30 nautical stock NPCs from 1st to 16th level, ready to drop into any encounter at a moment's notice. A pair of fully developed ship crews to use as allies or adversaries in Cutthroats and Crew. Eight richly detailed and ready-to-play pregenerated PCs in Nautical Heroes, each with detailed histories and backgrounds and advancement notes, perfect as followers, rivals, or even replacement PCs!  That's already over 200 pages of piratical delights for you, but that's just the beginning! With stretch goals, we'll be adding new nautical class options like aquatic archetypes, feats, and spells, more monsters, and even more surprises as we collect stretch goals along the way, where you get to help decide what goes in the final book! With your support, this book easily could pass 300 pages and beyond!
      Plus, we'll have a Pirates and Plunder chapter where YOU have the chance to bring a whole pirate world to life with characters and pirate captains and crews of your own, even designing a personal pirate flag, figurehead, or even a treasure map!

      Starfinder: Dead Suns
      Chapter 1: INCIDENT AT ABSALOM STATION
      by Robert G. McCreary
      Starfinder Adventure Path #1: Incident at Absalom Station © 2017, Paizo Inc. All Rights Reserved. 
      For more info visit www.paizo.com/starfinder 
       
      You all have received a message from a dwarf by the name of Duravor Kreel, a member of the Starfinder Society. In this message he says he has a offer for you that if your task is successful could bring you notoriety with the Society itself. He wants you to meet him on Absalom Station. After you've arrived he'll  show you around the Station, get settled in & help with your membership into the Society. Why he picked you? The dwarf has heard some things about each one of you off the net & knew you'd be perfect for the job. After your arrived, he'll explain the job in more depth. He excited to see everyone.
       
      Now,  where or not, your a native of Absalom Station, you've decided that you needed some time away where it's a vacation or a job you're returning on the shuttle, Okimoro. A non-descriptive shuttle like any other that frequents the docking bays of the Station. In particular, Docking Bay 94 ("what a piece of junk".........) on this day.
       
      Absalom Station
       
      The brightly lit docks of Absalom Station are abuzz with activity as travelers bustle by, preparing to board or disembarking from starships bound to or from any of dozens of worlds. Brash and swaggering star pilots, scurrying ysoki mechanics, and expectant colonists mingle with enigmatic kasatha mystics, hard-faced asteroid miners, imposing vesk mercenaries, and more, creating a microcosm of the abundance and variety of life in the Pact Worlds. New arrivals meet friends, loved ones, or business contacts, and are whisked away into the humming activity of daily life on the vast space station.
       
      Docking Bay 94
       
      Beyond them, ground crews tend to the docked ships, and dockworkers in mechanized cargo lifters load and unload freight and luggage.  A sharp tang of ozone hangs in the air—a byproduct of electrical discharges from the docked ships—but underneath, the station’s atmosphere has a slightly used aroma. The docking bay’s deck plates thrum beneath your feet, though whether it’s from the passage of innumerable feet or the vibrations of the station’s power conduits and air recycling systems is impossible to say.
       
      Taking in your surroundings the bay looks like any other docking bay, a large, worn yellow painted "94" lays on the floor directly in front of everyone (everyone is in the grey "trapezoid"), that steps off the shuttle. A information kiosk in on your left. There are set of giant double doors North of the party & there are 2 passages that to the side of those doors.
       
       Anyone outside the shuttle, give me a Perception Check.

      About this project
      It seems like no matter how many dice you buy, you still never have enough d6s... meanwhile, your collection of unnecessary d20s keeps getting bigger. 
      Dice of Rolling are not rocket science. They’re just regular dice that come in the amounts you actually need, and they use color for more than just decoration. One simple purchase, and you’re good to go for most of the situations you’ll encounter in the 5th edition of the world's greatest roleplaying game. And since each dice type is a different color, you'll always grab the right ones. It’s kind of a no-brainer, but nobody else is doing it so we're bringing it to Kickstarter. 
      This is the dice set we’ve always wanted for our table, and with your help we can bring it to tables everywhere!
        
       
        
       
      We’re keeping the rewards real simple. You can pledge to receive 1, 2, 4, or 20 sets, and each set will include the same 29 color-coded dice + microfiber dice bag.

       The Deck of Many is a series of 5e reference cards for Monsters, NPCs, Conditions and Weapons.
      The Deck of Many is a tool used to assist Game Masters in their role-playing campaigns, freeing them from traditional reference books and allowing them to only bring the references they need. Each card features original artwork and easy to reference information. Should we be successful, all funds raised from this campaign will go towards producing the 4 decks and other campaign rewards.
       
      Starting price: $16 for your choice of 1 deck including shipping to U.S & CAN
