Rise of the Runelords

Grimm thinks about the invitation. While he really doesn't like this guy, Nicholai's words make sense. "Fine, but don't expect me ta be savin' yer worthless hide should yer sport go sour on ya" he says to Aldern.

Anyone who wants to hunt boar, give me a D20 roll modified by either Str or Dex and BAB, to represent if you try to spear or shoot a boar.

Nicholai manages to strike the boar with his longbow and a well placed shot to the neck.

Aldern motions to one of his retainers to finish the beast off.


"Well done, master Nicholai.  An excellent shot indeed.  We'll get this boar butchered up and have a feast in your honor tonight at the Rusty Dragon.  I'll be sure the hide is suitably tanned and softened in case you'd like it as a rug souvenir.  I'll also have the tusks cleaned for you as well.  Those could fetch a nice price to a collector or weaponsmith for handle material."


You are all offered a slice of the heart meat to try raw as it is just removed from the carcass, still beating.

You share a picnic lunch with Aldern.  During that time you can ask him various questions.  If you'd like, you can use it as an opportunity for Gather Information.


 Meanwhile, back in town...


Daton is resting under a tree, doing some light reading.

He is approached by this beautiful, buxom redhead.

She bashfully asks "Hello, you are one of the heroes from the Goblin Attack, right?  I heard you single-handedly dealt with the Goblin Commander."




She introduces herself as Shayliss Vinder, one of the two Vinder daughters to Ven Vinder, a prominent shop keeper in Sandpoint.

She goes on to tell you how her father is so busy with his shop, and worrying about her sister tramping around with some low life from the lumbermill, that he won't believe her about the pest problem in the storage cellar below the shop.


"Why, just yesterday I'm sure I saw a rat the size of a goblin in our store room hiding behind a barrel.  Please, mighty adventurer, please help this damsel in distress..."

Daton'll raise an eyebrow at her manner of speech but focus himself.

"I fear my prowess has been exaggerated, my lady. Twas the bowman priest of Erastil who struck the killing blow on the goblin chief. But my valor is true. Perhaps you'd like to discuss this rat problem further over at the Rusty Dragon?"

Shayliss is a little surprised by the redirect to the Rusty Dragon.


"Yes, I would like that."

She lithely glides over to Daton, snaking an arm around his arm.  She walks with an exaggerated shake to her hips. 

As you walk her to the Rusty Dragon, you almost get a sense that she is beaming to the young ladies you pass in the street.

Some of them have looks of jealousy on their faces.  Some of them have roll their eyes as if to say "her latest conquest."


The common room of the Dragon is pretty empty, you can sit at of a number of small unoccupied tables.

All right, so...

I'm assuming Ameiko is working close to the bar/kitchen area so Daton'll sit Shayliss to a table relatively far from there, possibly one reasonably private.

He'll of course be gentlemanly, pulling out the chair for her and everything, then excuse himself.

"I've become acquainted with the proprietor of the establishment, I'm sure she can give us food and drink at a discount."


Walking over to where Ameiko is, Daton'll address her in a more hushed tone.

"Greetings, Ameiko. I was perhaps hoping, along with some food and drink for me and this very friendly lady there, that you could perhaps tell me a bit about her?"

      Forests in fantasy roleplaying games are dark places, full of secrets. With this project, we bring the Old Margreve to the 5th Edition of the world's most popular RPG. The Margreve is an ancient, enchanted forest that defends itself from those who come to cut its timber, poach its creatures, or steal its magic. Within its borders the Old Ways are strong, the word of the druids carries great weight, and griffons, dragons, and stranger creatures nest and hunt, undisturbed by humans, dwarves, or other lordlings.  
      Until your adventuring party shows up. Then things get really interesting.
      The Margreve Kickstarter offers three main elements: 
      1) the Tales of the Old Margreve adventure campaign hardcover for the GM, with adventures from levels 1 to 10
      2) a Margreve Player's Guide softcover book of new player options, including new races, druid and ranger subclasses and tools, backgrounds, and forest-themed spells.
      3) (if unlocked) a set of thick cardboard standups, the Margreve Pawns, which are similar to those created for Tome of Beastsand the Creature Codex. Here is a small sample of what that would look like; we anticipate producing 150 to 200 pawns (depending on stretch goals).
      Together with some book-expanding stretch goals, this project provides new deep-forest character options and a full sequence of adventures to draw adventurers into the wilderness and keep them on their toes.
      Initially we debated this as a softcover adventure collection, but we soon realized that it was large enough and compelling enough to make into a hardcover volume playable in 5th Edition fantasy campaigns, together with a player supplement. Why not go big?
      Kobold Press is doing something a little different with its digital offerings this time. We're putting our effort into the two print books, and possibly a custom set of pawns—and digitally, full sets of virtual tabletop (VTT) files. That means that we'll have the Old Margreve adventures and source material available on Roll20 and on Fantasy Grounds shortly after the hardcover and softcover volumes ship. 
      With terrific map management, full suites of digital tokens, pre-set monster stats, and more, virtual tabletops make it easier than ever to just sit down and play. The VTT packages for the Old Margreve will be extensive and include everything provided in the print edition—plus the flexibility and speed of online play. We're partnering directly with Roll20 and Fantasy Gournds, two of the leading VTT companies, to make these digital versions complete and powerful.
      The designers on this project include lead designer Matt Corley plus contributing designers Dan Dillon, Jon Sawatsky, James Introcaso, and Wolfgang Baur. 
      They build on earlier Margreve work by Richard Pett, Ben McFarland, Tim & Eileen Connors, Dan Voyce, Michael Furlanetto, Wolfgang Baur, and others.
      Shipping costs from the US to anywhere outside North America have risen sharply in recent years, so we are once again partnering with groups in Canada, in the EU, and likely in Australia (depending on the volume of backers there), and if so then Kobold Press will pay customs and import duties for those packages. 
      Our best guess for those Canada-friendly and EU-friendly costs right now are roughly $22 shipping for Canada and roughly $30-and-a-bit for shipping to the EU. We do not have an Australia estimate yet.
      To calculate shipping to your location from the US, you can use the US Postal Service calculator and assume a Medium size flat rate box:  https://postcalc.usps.com/

      I think I've decided on what adventure to run:
      Seers of the Drowned City
      This is a 6th level adventure.
      Stats, roll 4d6 drop the lowest die
      No evil alignments, CN allowed
      HPs, Max 1st level & then either avg or roll, ignoring 1s.
      Gear: As I said before work with me on what you want for your level. Normal equipment, you can have, even plate if you want but remember the title of the adventure. Magical items: Hmmm it's been awhile but since this adventure is kinda of a sequel to Ire of the Storm, I'm gonna draw the treasures out of that one & post & let the party pick what they want out of that.
      Class: Everything, including Unchained versions
      Races: Hmmm work with me but I'm flexible
      Traits: Allowed, up to 2.
      Any questions: Post here & I'll do my best to answer.
      If you have any interest, feel free to post. First 4 are definitely in & possible 5th or 6th.
      With me having a home 5e game now, I'm letting my Pathfinder knowledge slip a bit so I wanna at least keep 1st ed alive for me till 2nd comes out.

      I know there are plenty of RPG players on the board, and Zweihander just won ENnies for Best Game and Product of the Year at Gen Con.  I missed the first campaign, but strongly considering jumping in on this one.
