Rise of the Runelords

[Hey, I'm back! Now with full gear.]

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?”

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

 

The High Priest was named Ezakian Tobyn.

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

"If there was anything of value, the tomb robbers chose an awfully strange moment to break in. And it's a sure bet that goblins don't worship Desna."

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

"Someone *with* the goblins? Maybe not that strange a moment after all."

 

[Initiative Tical: 7+2 = 9, Reegol: 16+1 = 17 but holds until Tical acts, so 9]

Am I within 5' of a skeleton?, if so full attack; dwarven waraxe 18+1=19, damage 8+2=10 and dwarven maulaxe 17+1=18, damage 4+1=5. If unable to make a full attack only the first atk with the waraxe.

Yes.

You destroy the second skeleton.

 

There is nothing special about the skeletons.

 

In the corner of the Crypt you see a discarded robe.

 

(Spellcraft check?)

Tical is slightly unnerved by the presence of the undead.

 

"Were... were any of those High Priest Tobyn?"

Tical identifies the robe as a Robe of Bones.  It's completely used up.  It would appear the skeletons were summoned by the robe, and that the High Priest's remains were taken.

You search for clues and don’t find anything else.

 

You back out and tell the Sheriff.  He seems confused and concerned.  “Please use discretion and keep this to yourself.  We don’t want a panic about Goblin GraveRobbers, that’s just puzzling.”

 

Anything you want to do in town?

Buy Anything?

Or just go back to the Dragon?

At the tomb: Tical's nose wrinkles in slight disgust. "This robe... it uses, or used, dark summoning magic. A perversion of my own kind of magic. Not anyone is willing to use skeletons. And it's a sure bet that the goblins weren't the ones using it."

 

Back in town, to the sheriff: "With what we found, I'm not sure the goblins are the only problems. I don't know if it's someone working with the goblins, or just saw an opportunity, but that someone came prepared to pillage the tomb."

You have your words with the Sheriff.

 

You head back to the Rusty Dragon.

Aldern Foxglove is there.

"Heroes!  Everything is arranged, please join me on a boar hunt tomorrow morning!"

"We'll be sure to find one, and we can bring it back to feast like kings."

 

Does everyone want to go?

Does anyone want to do anything else today/tonight?

Daton, while thinking to himself "Urg, not this guy again.", will politely decline. Enough excitement for the day already, and better to hang around town in case something develops from this grave desecration thing... He'll either hang around his room or rest up under a tree or see if there's a library around. Just because he's got 10 int doesn't mean he can't do some light reading.

Nicholai suggests (out of hearing or any townsfolk) "that perhaps the boar hunt would be a good activity to use as cober for searching around the town for any clies or tracks about the attack on the town or the grave robbery."

 

Also bringing food to the community is in line with Deadeye's teachings.

"A hunt might be a well deserved distraction after the latest events. My companion would very well enjoy the activity."

 

Tical bows politely and glances towards Rigol to do the same. "We graciously accept your invitation young lord."

 

In the back of his mind, Tical is aware that being on friendly terms with the Foxglove family may get him some new contacts in Magnimar later on.

"Do as you please... I feel I've better things to do than keep company with a weenie who thinks shooting boar from the safest distance atop a horse counts as "sport".... Perhaps I'll hang around here and keep an ear to the ground. That a human broke into that crypt worries me and it might be a member of this community."

      Before I moved I was working on a RPG campaign concept that I have not been able to get off the ground since I moved so thought I'd kick the idea around here in the off chance it might start a fire with someone else ...
       
       So the game starts in an alternate reality with the gaming group stating them selves out as starting players, not 100% accurate but an alternate reality version of himself that fits into a starting player profile for whatever game system you like to use ...
       
       Once stated out the players will get together for game night,  in the alternate reality version of where your group gets to get her to play ... you get the idea, your playing a alternate reality version of you, but this alternate reality gets interrupted by an mini zombie apocalypse, a freak storm and weird lightning bolts that turn people into zombies ...
       
       Being game nerds your group react accordingly and start putting down the zombies and figuring out what's going on ... a great opportunity to have some fun with the local peeps ... the players lern that the trouble is ruminating from a mysterious tower that appeared out of nowhere at a local golf course / sports field / etc large open spot ... the players gear up and do what players do, poke their nose in to fine a much queen rounding up zombie slaves to take back home with her ... 
       
       Only once the players take the evil much queen out do they discover her life sustained the tower in this plain, at the moment she died the tower and all inside return to her plane of origin ... the fantasy world of ... 
       
       The players and whatever firepower they have ammased now find themselves in a new world full of new challenges ... filled with your favorite minis of course ... they will have to find and ally with some locals to eat/learn to survive in their strange new world ...
       
       As the year rolls round one customer seems to stand out more and more, the clan / tribe / town your players allied with are obsessed with collecting the skulls of their enimie race works/ lizard folk / whatever you have handy ... they must collect s quota for their gods before they return and time is running out ... the players must prove their worth and bag some skulls soon.
       
       On the appointed time they come ... your allies see their gods descending in a chariot of fire ... your group see a drop ship with a party of powered armored warriors here to collect a pile of skulls and thank the locals for keeping the hostile race numbers down with a few thank you trinkets.
       
       The warriors from space are sure to see you are different and take you with them to the stars ... and so begins the 3rd phasebofbthe game, space, the next frontier...
       
      Start with zombie apocalypse,  take you time ...
       Shift to fantasy (magic = psychics) take more time ...
       Shift to science fiction with alien vertions of the fantasy world ... all agreed to a wager over the planet,  most skulls wins or something like that but limited to primitive tech only ... on the planet ... some argue the players are cgeaterd but thay have seen things wail on the planet that exsposes others as cheats ... thing go from bad to worse ... in just the way a GM can get some mileage out of ...

      A DCC RPG boxed setting for Lankhmar, officially licensed by the estate of Fritz Leiber. Adventure with Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser!

       
      There are three basic pledge levels:
      The PDF pledge level includes an electronic edition of the final boxed set. (Obviously there will be no box!) This level does not include any physical rewards, add-ons or stretch goals. The boxed set includes the core boxed set as described above. All electronic stretch goals (PDFs) will apply to this level. Some of the physical stretch goals will apply to this level, generally those that fit in the box. The final level includes the boxed set as well as the "print pack." All electronic stretch goals (PDFs) will apply to this level. All of the physical stretch goals will apply, as well. Those that do not fit in the box will be shipped in a separate "print pack." See below for more information on these stretch goals.  
      Stretch Goals
      DCC Lankhmar continues a long tradition in RPG gaming, and we want to do right by the estate of Fritz Leiber. The stretch goals associated with this Kickstarter will help create an even more amazing tribute to the world of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser.
      Stretch goals fall into three categories:
      PDF stretch goals that all backers receive Print stretch goals that can fit into the boxed set, which will be included with any pledge that has the physical boxed set The "Print Pack," which is a printed collection of the stretch goals which don't fit in the boxed set Here is a rough outline of possible stretch goals, which may evolve as the Kickstarter continues.
      At $40,000: Cleared! We will add a new Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $60,000: We will print the poster map larger (included in boxed set)
      At $80,000: We will add a second Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $100,000: We will add a supplement called "A Dozen Lankhmar Locations," which will provide information, maps, and floorplans on setting adventures in a dozen famous Lankhmar locales (including the Silver Eel!) (PDF for all backers; print copy in the boxed set)
      At $120,000: We will add a third Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $140,000: We will add a supplement called "Random NPCs in Lankhmar," which will provide tables and information for generating random NPCs that your PCs can encounter in Lankhmar (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $160,000: We will add a fourth Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $180,000: We will add a Lankhmar-themed three-panel Judges Screen (PDF for all backers; print copy in the boxed set)
      At $200,000: We will add a fifth Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $220,000: We will add a cloth map in the boxed set (print copy in the boxed set)
      At $240,000: We will add a sixth Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $250,000: We will add send Michael Curtis to Houston for a week to research the Fritz Leiber archives in the University of Houston. We anticipate this may result in a new product of some kind to be delivered to backers of this Kickstarter, but exactly what we'll discover in the archives - and what product may result from it - can't be determined until Michael sets foot in the archives!

      Hi Guys,
       
      I have read the guidelines of posting kickstarters and hope I am doing this correctly.
       
      If anyone has a chance come along and check out my kickstarter project specialising in hardwood dice boxes.
      If you have any thoughts or future stretch goal ideas then please I would love to hear them.

      The BBC Archive posted this great clip to their facebook page of a TV segment about role-playing games from 1980.  It's a super time capsule of old games and figures...

      Hi nerds, this is my first Kickstarter. Gotta take care of my gamer nerds yeah? There's inserts for minis, favorite dice, and dice jail. The slots are specifically sized to handle Magic cards with sleeves too.
      What do you think? I need all the sharing I can get folks.
