[DnD 5E] Talos: City of Intrigue and Adventure!

Recommended Posts

Can Paladins still heal? We seem to be short a healbot. And Paladins can (in other editions) both smash heads and heal.

 

Right now we've got:

Me - Something Something Something Dark Side

Baph - Beatstick

Pcktlnt - Skillmonkey

 

EDIT: AND WHAT ARE YOU STILL DOING UP AT THIS HOUR, YOUNG LADY??

-_- What? it's only like 2am. I'm always on this late.

 

And I can do paladin. I can do smashy paladin! I do Char paladin all the time - a smashy type might be fun! Maybe I'll do the big dumb devout, I always loved that...

Hm... It'll be interesting to play a paladin around your character. After all, how dumb must one be to legitimately not notice a worshiper of the Elder Gods in their own party? How long can you last before becoming so blatant in your devilry that even the dumbest paladin notices?

 

Hm...

 

Rolls are (2d6+6) 14 15 12 16 11 13

 

Really good roll IMO, even if nothing's stellar. Lots of good stats, even without an 18 - good layout for a paladin... Might go for a human, get that little bit of guaranteed control. Hrrm.

 

I'm thinking

 

Str: 16

Con: 15

Dex: 13

 

Wis: 12

Int: 11

Cha: 14

 

A charismatic guy, if not clever - he's got magnetism, if not the smarts to use it... If I wanted to be statistically dumb, I could go for something that docks points in int, although I probably shouldn't, considering that would knock out casting, as I understand it. Maybe I'll dock wisdom instead? Are there even any races that drop Wis?

 

Huh. I should probably dig up the 5e players guide...

*blink**blink* Yeah, I think I'll go hunt up the PHP before I go any further, then.

 

edit: Oh wow, this is... expansive. That's why I wish they'd let us gen characters at cons... Or even have the books on hand to flip through...

 

Still thinking human, human or halfelf. Paladin of devotion, obs.

I didn't notice any minuses on any of the 5e races.

Stats are a huge part of the mechanic.  A penalty would be brutally cruel.

I'm going to read through the PHB this weekend, since I haven't done anything since early play testing when you only had 4 levels of stuff available and almost no options.  I hear they've done a little more since then.

Man you guys sure get chatty after I go to sleep.

 

Oh, since dsmiles is switching to a warlock, could I switch to the rogue class (still want to be a swashbuckler-ish type)

Rogue is fine.  No one is locked in until the first post in the playing.  And even then only until you die a tragic and/or heroic death at the hands of the DM.

 

Can Paladins still heal? We seem to be short a healbot. And Paladins can (in other editions) both smash heads and heal.

 

Paladins have lay on hands which allow them to heal 5hp/level.  They can also use 5pts of healing to cure disease or neutralize poison.  Hmm, rules don't say whether they the pool refreshes after a long or short rest.  Might have to look that up.  Additionally, each character can rest.  After a short rest, a PC can can spend one or more hit dice to heal.  Roll your hit die, add your con modifier and heal that many points.  Repeat as long as you have unspent hit dice.  After a long rest you hit dice replenish and you regain all lost hp. 

 

So you don't need a heal monkey, you just have to rest more often (short rest is 1 hour, long is 8 hours).  If th DM lets you, that is. :devil:

If you're going to lay on hands, just make sure you buy me a pint at the tavern (preferably before the obligatory tavern burning bar fight happens) first.

Judas, Half-Orc Warlock


----Appearance----

 

Judas looks like a hot mess. He is a lanky, rail-thin Half-Orc with stringy, graying, black hair, and intense, feverish red eyes. He wears a patchy beard and thin moustache. Scarred across every inch of his body are ritual writings in a cramped, incomprehensible language. You're not entirely sure how he reached some of those places, and wrote so perfectly, but they are definitely written in his hand. When he casts a spell, parts of the writing glow with a black-violet light.

 

----Backstory----

 

Judas was once a farmer. Until the day he wasn't...

 

The Half-Orc called Judas worked, and worked, and worked. He paid his taxes, and loved his family. He ate, he drank (sometimes a lot), and he made merry (mostly when he drank). He had a wife, and two sons, and they were the center of his world. Until the day he found It. It was in his field, in a corner normally reserved for his wife's small garden of root vegetables. A lump of stone, worked by man's hand. It was formless, but It had form. He kept It. He cleaned It. It became important to Judas. He took It to the woods on the edge of his field, and built It a hut. A small hut, with a small, stone altar, on which he placed It. He spoke to It, he prayed to It. He did this daily, instead of his devotions to Berei (Goddess of Home, Family, and Agriculture).

 

One day, It answered. Judas took It away from the altar, and into the mountains. There Judas found an ancient ruin, with strange glyphs carved in the crumbling stone. The glyphs showed him much that was previously unknown to Judas, and Judas took it all in. Judas remained at the ruins for about twelve years, alone. He discovered a well. A well of worlds, and in that well was an intelligence. That intelligence was It. It had a name, a name that could only be spoken by the chosen few. Yog-Sothoth. Yog-Sothoth, Aforgomon, Bolothamogg, Tawil At-U'mr, the Lurker at the Threshold, the Opener of the Way, the All-in-One and the One-in-All. Yog-Sothoth, the gate, the key, and the guardian of the ways. Judas looked into the well and saw great globes of light massing toward the opening, and not alone these, but the breaking apart of the nearest globes, and the protoplasmic flesh that flowed blackly outward to join together and form that eldritch, hideous horror from outer space, that spawn of the blankness of primal time, that tentacled amorphous monster which was the lurker at the threshold, whose mask was as a congeries of iridescent globes, the noxious Yog-Sothoth, who froths as primal slime in nuclear chaos beyond the nethermost outposts of space and time!

 

Judas made his way to Talos, sensing a greater purpose, and earning his way as a wandering healer. It was with him, It was always with him...

 

----Personality----

 

Quiet to the point of near-constant silence, Judas spent many years away from any sort of social interaction, and has a hard time in social environments.  He plays his cards close to his vest, and rarely does anyone see more of him than he allows them to. He often gets lost in his own head, sometimes for hours on end, and is completely oblivious to his surroundings during those times. You can sometimes see something, like he's keeping a secret, or has a private joke, that no one else knows.

So, given my earlier request, I imagine the inn I'm in is somewhere on the border of Old Town and The Narrows? Just trying to get my bearings, here.

I have my character back story done and I'm waffling between human and half-orc. Also...I'm afraid to role my dice. A good majority of the time, my first roll will be two 1's. -__-

An area between the Docks, Old Town and the Narrows.  I have a sketch of the map that I can take a picture of and upload for reference at some point.

      This small project is to fund a collection of little encounters that can be dropped into an existing adventure for low level adventurers.  I backed his previous project for alternate character backgrounds, and he delivered the PDFs early.

      The Grand Duchy of Reme awaits!
      Starting in 2002 Necromancer Games began populating its Lost Lands campaign setting one adventure at a time. The Grand Duchy of Reme is the region home to classic adventures released by Necromancer Games for D20/3.x and Frog God Games for Pathfinder, Swords & Wizardry and Fifth Edition. 
      More than 10 adventures have brought life to the Grand Duchy of Reme. The Lost Lands Campaign Sourcebook funded in January is expected to be over 700 pages and all of them are full of information. By necessity each region was described broadly, but there are still a wealth of history, politics and other details to be explored, experience and expanded in the Grand Duchy of Reme. 
      The Grand Duchy of Reme is a system neutral hardcover volume designed to be useful for campaigns independent of system preference. Specific details that affect the characters in the Lost Lands there are System Encounter Books. These companion volumes are softcover (or PDF), that contain reference stats for use with the Region book along with detailed encounter tables for the region.
      Additionally, 3 classic adventures previously unavailable for Pathfinder, Swords & Wizardry, and Fifth Edition are back. These are offered as either softcover add-ons in backerkit or as free stretch goals in PDF (see reward sidebar).
      Mock-up of Grand Duchy of Reme. Final release will differ slightly The city of Reme itself is ancient, with world-spanning trade — the eternal citadel of the Loreclans, where the ashes of legendary barbarian kings reside. This land lies near the slow collapse of the nearby Empire of Foere, and the rise of Bard’s Gate to the East. The Rhemish watch these events with cold eyes rather than concern, for they live in vast regions that devour invaders. Their land is eternal; their people can be forced back to the plains, but in the plains they can abide for as long as need be. They are — as a people — the ultimate hunters. The fall of Foere is like the fall of an antelope upon the plains; the rise of Bard’s Gate is little more than the stepping-up of jackals before the body. The Grand Duchy of Reme simply waits and watches — for Reme is the dwelling-place of the world’s wolves.
      Reme is a unique fantasy civilization whose structure is determined by the one overriding fact of its geography — the country is a vast, grassland plain. The realm is dominated by the culture of the ancient Loreclans: the urbanized and settled ones, and the nomadic clans of the interior. The Loreclans owe a certain fealty to the Dukes of Reme, who are the final arbiters of the ancient law of the plains, but between the Loreclans and the Dukes there are also the mysterious Pashtars: arbiters, judges, and mediators who roam the plains where their service takes them.
      The city of Reme, of course, is one of the wonders of the world of the Lost Lands, home of powerful spell-casters and perhaps the greatest mercantile and war fleets of the Crescent Sea. It is also, however, steeped in the culture of the vast plains of the interior. It is a place where assumptions are dangerous, for it is no standard fantasy environment — it is a culture that will be entirely new and foreign to your players, a place to truly explore as well as adventure.

      So pre-launch (I think October). Just under 2000 copies are already printed and will ship after the pledge manager closes. More supporters will be part of a second print run for January 2020. About 30US$ to ship to Canada for a softcover & pdf. Also the option exists to back in advance for the 3 follow up adventures. That seems to be at a 5$ discount from the first module.

      Sorry if I've missed seeing this one.  It's the latest KS from Agate/Studio 2.  This time it's not Esteren but the project that Iris has been working on.  It sounds like it is pretty well done in French, so this project is to finance printing of the English edition.

      Anyone here backing this one? I missed the first one, of Feyland, but there's a level where you can get both books. I don't have a ton of physical 3rd party 5e stuff so I'm down for it.
