Sunless Citadel 5e pbp

Recommended Posts

I have electronic versions of the core rules if anyone needs them.

Well as the only full spell caster, as long as we have party members without dark vision, I'll be taking light as one of my cantrips.

 

I just need to figure out what the rest of them and my starting spells will be.  I plan on filling up my spell book as much as possible.

Variant Humans:  I do use feats, so you'd be trading your +2 to everything for the feat & the +1s.

 

I thought the book said +1 to everything, not +2.  Is this errata?

 

I didn't make much progress tonight. I had to take a nap after work because I couldn't retain what I was reading, and then I posted in the argument thread.  I'm trying to decide between elf and human.  On one hand elves have better vision, OTOH it looks like rogues now need the dungeon delver feat to get the best anti-trap features.  So, see in the dark now and get the feat later or feat now and see in the dark later.

 

EDIT: I'll go with vision now, feats later.

 

I don't know anything about 5E Forgotten Realms.  Are there any resources for a bit of background?

The UA ranger I do believe is a spell-less ranger, takes it back closer to roots or like Aragorn. If you wanna look at it I can send you the link to the article.

There's been a lot of UA rangers but the "Ranger Revised" they released isn't spell-less, the spell-less one was more about giving samples of how to customize classes.

While the original PHB ranger is a bit underpowered... I think the revised one kind of goes the complete opposite way and is TOO powerful.

Instead of favored terrain, it gets this, which is a bit overpowered in my opinion:

•You have advantage on initiative rolls.
•On your first turn during combat, you have advantage on attacks against creatures that have not yet acted.

I've more or less finished looking through the player information, except I skipped reading all of the spells.

 

I used one of the fillable sheets from WotC only to discover they've protected it so that it only saves as a blank form.  :mellow:  Why would you lock a sheet by default?  Guess its time to see what's been uploaded to EN world for 5E.

Correct +1 not +2.

 

info for FR: http://forgottenrealms.wikia.com/wiki/Forgotten_Realms

 

Not that I will really get into the realms lore & such. It's more or less for racial stuff & other FR items that matter the most to players. I'm more of a Greyhawk & Mystara (Basic D&D) fan myself. Thou there are more online resources for FR.

Yah I was thinking that was only for 1 type of terrain ie original favor terrain ability but a little more refined. I think I may scale that ability back like the original PH version. Granted it does become useless if all you do is play in swamps if you've chosen forest thou.

 

 As far as the spell-less version, hmm I could swore that one was it. Eh live & learn. One reason why I want to get a DMed 5e pbp game going before RC this year. I'll know more about game & such.

 I'm theoretically interested in joining up depending on what's in the party so far... I've got a couple character concepts I'd like to try out.

 

What have you guys got and what are you missing?

Rogue, ranger, wizard, paladin. We're kind of missing a primary healer.

'k, let's see if this works... YES!  The sheet is autofilling and calculating for me.  I appear to be getting the same numbers out as when I did it by hand, but as this is my 1st 5E character I'm dropping it in here to be double-checked.

 

@haldir, it looks like I will need to work with you on the Inheritor background.  If you want to do it by PM we can.

 

Edit: it displayed fine, but disappears as a post.  I'll see if I can figure out where my image went.

 

OK, going to give up on dragging and dropping since this makes several times it has lost an image.  Regular old upload it is.

 

Edit II: I see the forum resize is doing funny things for a large image.  Click to preview and then right-click view image (or open in new tab) on the preview to finally get it full size.

That is the sheet I use for Daarcstar's pbp here. Good sheet. I think as long as you upload the final version it'll be readable with a PDF reader.

 

Ok np with the background. I'll read what exactly it is & we can work with it.

So Haldir, can I bring Daton in or make a fresh character?

 

I have no problems with you doing that.

 

Ok with Mad Jack that brings us to 5 players. Adventure calls for 4 but I'll make it work. It'll give me a chance to up-scale the combats & such.

 

As far as where this adventure will start, ToYP says to stick the Sunless Citadel adventure in the foothills NW of the ruins of Thundertree. The citadel plunged into the earth when Mount Hotenow erupted many years ago.

 

So looking at this map I'd say it's under the wording of Neverwinter woods or so.

Dang you Randy, for bringing up the UA stuff.  I was all set on going Abjurer for my wizard school.  Now that I have seen the Loresleeker and Thamaturge schools I am undecided.  I'll have to make a choice by the time I hit second level.  Which tends to come quick in 5E.

Almost done filling out my stuff, just debating on some things.  I'm just going to go with the Standard PHB Ranger with Faction Agent (Emerald Enclave) background.  Will use variant human rules.  I'll try to get the sheet posted up by tomorrow night assuming that work doesn't get too crazy (no guarantee unfortunately). 

 

@haldir if you need something quicker let me know or if you need anything specific from me regarding the background let me know.  I will try to write up a quick bio as well but figured that the character sheet was the main thing for now.  :)

 Sunless Citadel starts at 1st level, right? What level are we expected to be by the end of it?

 

I assume multiclassing and feats are okay?

I'm thinking I might do a warlock/druid... It'll give us healing and ranged blasting as well as some utility...

I'm going to start as a variant human druid with the Magic Initiate feat for Warlock (taking Eldritch Blast and Minor Illusion as the two cantrips, and the Healing Elixir spell from the Unearthed Arcana "Starter Spells" article (I have the pdf if anybody wants to read it), and then go a level of feylock (or maybe the new Raven Queen patron from the UA article) at 2nd level.

I'm writing up a custom background for the character, which I'll post for approval after work on Monday...

I still need to roll up my stats and fill out a character sheet...

      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.
