ReaperWolf's Official RC2017 RPG Events & Schedule

Recommended Posts

Happy weekend ya'll!

 

It's that time again. With a little over 4 weeks until RC2017 it's time for some reveals.

 

Below you'll find the schedule of events for the Reaper RPG events. It's almost identical to the past three years with one tiny exception. I took Saturday night off. Yup. I noticed the past 2-3 years Saturday night attendance has been very light. There are awards and banquets and people are tired from all the fun. Last year the event didn't go off at all 'cuz I didn't have any players. Even the Pathfinder Society judges noticed it was lite and they sturggled for fannies in seats. So this year the 8 player mashup only runs once. I will be around, I'll have a few tasty options to run starting after dinner around 8PM Saturday night. Or I'll hang out. Not sure yet. Games I'll have on hand include D6xD6 (many settings ready to roll), Hollow Earth Expedition, and Atlantis the Second Age, and Star Frontiers powered by FATE 3.0. Not to be missed!

 

Just like previous years, four faction themed adventures are presented. You'll get a chance to climb into the skins of fearless Duskwardens, conniving Maggotcrowns, mysterious Bonehenge Covenant members, and this year for the first time cast your lot with the River Widows, ruthless river pirates with a hint of voodoo. Each faction adventure runs twice.

 

My last event rolls at 11 AM on Sunday and wraps by 2:00 PM. Plenty of time to pack up and head off to the auction.

 

The Dreadmere Sandbox 8 player game is unlike previous years. It's not an all-faction mashup although I'm guessing there will be a few faction members in the mix. ;) After pregens are handed out ya'll will decide on a destination based upon maps and rumors and just dive into perilous hex-crawling adventure. Or, if you're feeling froggy, hop over to Stonegraves, Murkillor the Wraith King's megadungeon for some truly unforgettable adventure.

 

So... what game system is worthy? This year I'm using Castles & Crusades 6th printing, more or less. :D

 

I've ported in a few D&D 3.x/Pathfinder-isms and also bolted on a few of my own designs including a FATE aspect system that'll knock your socks off. If you hate FATE, feel free to ignore it. There will be joss tokens (Fate/destiny/luck points). We may also give my die based initiative/action and critical hit systems a try. Crits don't have to be just extra damage anymore!!

 

Pregens will be provided. Classes and races will be tweaked so they seamlessly represent the world of Adon: Dark Heaven Legends.

 

Characters will all have the same XP, everybody will be 4th level except for rogues 5th. Max HP at 1st level and at least average for each level therafter (you can either roll before we play or take 65% x HD)

 

I will entertain requests for gear however it'll take some serious tap-dancing and offerings to the GM to convince me to hand out any items granting invisibility, omniscience, clairvoyance, or eliminating encumbrance like bags of holding.

 

Feel free to holler at me with any and all questions.

And 'cuz ya'll love maps. The latest map of the Dark Moors.

 

Subject to change based upon needs and whims of design and management. :)

And what would a large overland map be without a WIP Dreadmere map.

 

Note! I have about 10,000 small buildings and landmarks to drop in and you wouldn't believe the number of labels.

 

This map is gonna be gargantuan.

p.s. Don't think I didn't notice the Disciples territory is unchanged from last year. Stay tuned, this is last years map.

A quick update:

 

We're still getting everything in place. My first three events are posted as is the Sunday sandbox game however the replays don't have descriptions.

 

Worry not!

 

The titles are listed, you just have to look at the same title on the previous days for the descriptions or...

 

Deepmist Maze (River Widows)
Castles & Crusades (modified), 6th printing - A shipment has gone astray and the reputation of the River Widows is riding on the delivery! An ambitious Weaver with Reaver aspirations has bungled the transfer of valuable cargo- the sort of cargo the meddlesome Reeve frowns upon. The shipment is bound for the Free City of Farkeep and the buyer is growing impatient. You and your fellow River Widows will venture into the Deepmist and retrieve the cargo at all cost. Naturally- there will be a few wrinkles along the way... rumor has it the Duskwardens are aware of the shipment and working with Covenant witches. Be quick!

 

By Torch and Hammer... (Duskwardens)
Castles & Crusades (modified), 6th printing - A gang of fiends prowls the streets of Dreadmere- no-one is safe from their bloodlust. The Duskwardens summon their hounds and take up torch and hammer to eradicate bloodhungry rakes.

 

The Aroma of Death (Knights of the Maggotcrown)
Castles & Crusades (modified), 6th printing - The stygian fog closes in blanketing the dank and musty tumbledown streets and waterways of Drowntown. In the Deepmist something stirs restlessly. The mucky fen pitches and heaves as an ancient manse from Old Mosscrest rises splitting open like an overripe melon. The intoxicating gravereek draws the Knights of the Maggotcrown to plumb the manses depths and welcome whatever lurks in the crypts.

 

Fonts of Power: Menhir & Henge (Bonehenge Covenant)
Castles & Crusades (modified), 6th printing - Someone or something is disrupting the ancient lines of power flowing to and through Dreadmere. Disrupting magical forces on this scale could be catastrophic. Whatever beast or being is perpetrating this vile deed must be exposed and rundown. This is no random act of vandalism- a dark hand is behind these dark deeds. Seek it out and destroy it!

 

Dreadmere Sandbox Free-For-All
Castles & Crusades (modified), 6th printing - Welcome to Dreadmire: Muck & More traveler! Join ReaperWolf on a perilous exploration of Reaper Miniatures Dark Heaven Legends setting. This will be sandbox style play- pick a direction or a spot on the map and set off on a truly unforgetable adventure. Alternatively brave the many dangers of Stonegraves- Murkillor the Wraith King's megadungeon. Only the bold need apply!

Sounds pretty cool!

Only pretty?

 

I'll have to take this up a notch.

 

Maybe provide stats for a Howling Bogthrasher.

Hrm...

 

Well imagine a pinnacle predator, and a highly territorial one capable of lifting and tossing single masted watercraft. Ugly. Damn ugly. They're nomadic, lurking in whatever large mucky hollow they can find. They're also known to excavate so it's possible to find one undergound. They're always hungry, have an insatiable appetite for meat which considering their size they can devour a grown man whole armor expelling the indigestible bits in great croaking belch. This is how they mark their territory, well that and shattered watercraft. A wise man knows how to recognize these heaps for what they are - a possible treasure trove. But be quick, although as large as a barn, the Bogthrasher is a master of ambush and stealth.

 

And the tadpoles are the size of alligator gar and twice as voracious.

When the lights go down and silence settle's round

Strange things float up way down in Drowntown

Dreadmere is rarely quiet, and when it is be afraid.

There are two white triangles on the right hand side edge of that image. Those are scale marks set at one half inch and one full inch.  Additionally, those are shown on one inch square bases.
