Rise of the Runelords

Recommended Posts

Drake is so tired that once he gets to his room he collapses in exhaustion and sleeps till morning.   He does not change out of his gear and he will keep the same spells.

Nothing troubling happens overnight.

 

The next morning, Amieko serves you fresh cinnamon rolls and hot spiced apple cider.

 

As you are enjoying the meal, a city Guard comes through the door.  He says a few words to Amieko, who nods in your direction.

 

He gives you a quick bow.

 

”Greetings heroes.  I am Todd.  Sheriff Hemlock asked for your help.  I am to accompany you to the Sandpoint Boneyard, where the Sheriff is waiting for you.”

You arrive at the “Boneyard” beside the rebuilt church.  Sheriff Hemlock is there to greet you.

 

”Heroes.  Thanks for coming.  Have a look at this...”

He points you to a small enclosed crypt.

 

”Until yesterday, this Crypt was sealed, and contained the remains of our last High Priest.  Now the lock is smashed and the earth around it is disturbed.  Also, there are signs of scuttling over the wall at the border of the Boneyard and City.  What do you think it means?”

"We may be able to determine more if we go inside and see what happened.  If the remains were desecrated, then they need to be re-consecrated.  Will you allow me to enter Sheriff? Or would you like to wait for Father Zantus?"

 

Can I tell what faith the High Priest followed; but the symbols on the crypt perhaps?

Sorry again for the delays.

 

Sheriff Hemlock sent Father Zantus to wait in the Cathedral.

He doesn't know if the High Priest was buried with anything significant.

 

Go ahead and give me a perception check and a survival check (OK to Take 10)

 

The High Priest was named Ezakian Tobyn.

He was a follower of Desna, just like Father Zantus.

Not anymore, you succeeded at both so you can tell them the important info:

 

You spot 6 sets of prints: 5 goblins and one humanoid.

 

((Dun Dun Duuuuuuhnnnnttt!) That’s the dramatic reveal music.)

      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

      This one is almost over so I figured it had already been posted here, but if it has my search-fu has failed me.
       
      Trudvang Chronicles
       
      It is well past its funding goal at this point, and I'll probably never play it, but it is still tempting just to help with a translation project and for the art.

      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.

      Anyone who may have missed out on the MapForge Kickstarter campaign...You can now get in on the MapForge Indiegogo campaign.
       
      There are two new videos to check out, even if you already backed the Kickstarter. And the MapForge Beta is available for download, so you can take the software for a spin.
