Talos: City of Intrigue and Adventure!

Recommended Posts

Horrik does not immediately recognize the threat coming from within the sanctuary, focusing as much as he is on possible threats coming at the group from the hallway.  Seeing the shadows he shrugs and laughs weakly, "Perhaps if I spent some time pouring over those dusty old tomes when we get back, it might prove useful after all."




Initiative:  1d20 +1 = 7

Religion Check:  1d20 + 1 = 2

Combat order:


Unidentified Shadow Creatures: 20

Niven: 16

Thromdor: 15

Grinly: 12

Horrik: 7


The two creatures drift toward Thromdor and Grinly, shadowy limbs grasping:


versus Thomdor: to hit 12+4=16  Miss!


versus Grinly: to hit 14+4=18 damage 6 pts necrotic damage, Str reduced by 3

Thromdor swings his axe in a mighty arc!



d20 (5) + 6 = 11


Apparently in the wrong direction.


8 + 4 = 12 for damage, not that that matters.

Grasping his longsword in both hands, Nivin hacks at the shadow thing attacking his fellow (yet otherwise dissimilar) halfling.




d20 (17) + 5 = 22 to hit


d10 (9) + 3 = 12 damage... assuming a mundane longsword can hurt these things.


Note that Nivin isn't raging yet, he want to test if he can actually hurt the things first.

Horrik loosens the grip on his hammer and begins to spin it by it's thong, a crackling cool blue energy building as the hammer picks up speed.  With a cry to Kord, Horrik grasps his warhammer tightly and and points it towards the specters, launching a blast of radiant energy into the heart of the shadowy form.




Sacred Flame: Target (TBD after Grinly acts.  Will hit the one that seems to have taken some damage from Nivin to focus fire, unless Grinly happens to drop it, then will switch the target to the one on Thromdor).  DC 14 Dexterity save, 1d8 = 7 points Radiant Damage.

Grinly winces with pain and his knees shake a bit as he is wracked with the weakening effects of the attack. He shouts a curse at the creature and strikes at it with his rapier.


13 attack

11 damage

Grinly's rapier skewers the creature and more shadow stuff spills from the rent his blade leaves behind.


At Horriks cry lightning strikes the creature, enveloping it before blasting it apart into tattered shreds that slowly fade from sight.


The remaining shadow creature seems unfazed by the loss of it fellow and continues attempting to grasp Thromdor.


Attack roll: 18+4=22  Damage: 10pts necrotic damage, 3pts Strength damage.

"G'won, y' clear off too," Nivin shouts, swishing his longsword at the remaining creature, through even thinner air than the creature itself.



d20 (3) + 5 = 8 to hit

"Gah! That...<gasp>...HURT!"


Thromdor winds up and swings again with his axe.



D20 (9) + 3 + 2 = 14. If it hits, damage is 7 + 3 = 10.

      Traveling Encounters volume 1
      Compelling 5th Edition Challenges For CR1 to CR5
      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.
      Brave the darkness and discover Monsters of the Underworld! You'll find unusual monsters and entire societies in this strange land. You don't just have to watch your back, you have to watch out above and below as well!
      Guiding you through this dangerous world is Desmond Hawkeye, an experienced monster hunter. He'll lead you to the new monsters and remind you that we can be heroes.
