Tyranny of Dragons: Hoard of the Dragon Queen

Recommended Posts

Daton will offer daggers and slings to the children.

 

"I know it's scary, but if we're jumped again I want you to be as ready to defend yourself as you can be... Be careful with those knives, they can be very sharp. Do you think you can handle it?"

 

Daton will then extend his handaxe to Cuth.

 

"Think you're in good enough condition to handle this if it comes down to it?"

 

He will also stash one of the daggers on his belt, and address the parents.

 

"We can talk as we walk, but we need to know what's happening and what we risk expecting. Tell us as much as you can, and worry not. We'll do all we can to keep you safe."

Rolen does a great job entertaining the kids, bringing a smile to their mother's face.

 

Daton then tries to get everyone back on task, doling out the weapons.

 

Cuth waves you off. "Sir, I'm not going to be able to use that one. If you please, I'll just carry my littlest one. He'd slow us down too much if we let him walk."

 

(OOC - the kids are too small and young to really help with the fighting They'll take the weapons and use them in case of the unthinkable).

Linan tells you the quickest way to the Keep is the street. It heads east, then branches to the side street to the Keep.

 

"We have seen kobolds, humans, giant lizards and we think there is a dragon up one the air."

 

At the thought of that, she shudders.

 

She continues. "The town is in chaos. Fires are burning everywhere. I fear the way to the Keep may be blocked soon."

 

(OOC I'm going to post some maps as soon as I can).

"Want me to scout out ahead?"

 

If there is a keep, and the city is under attack, is the keep entrance blockaded?

The top map shows Greenest among the cities of the Sword Coast.

 

The second is a map of Greenest. The important area is #1, which is the Keep.

 

Other points of note are a mill, stream, and temple to Chauntea, which those of you who had ties to Greenest will know about, and where they are.

I will retrieve my bolt from the kobold if I can. Wipe it & my axe off & place the bolt back into it's case. Shouldering my crossbow. I grab my shield & my axe & ask "Point the way to the keep, we'll get yah there!"

 

Being a merc, Klaus really had no home other then the one in the Mtn (insert name) that was overrun by goblins & other foul beasts. He lost his wife & 2 kids in that raid, he wasn't going to lose this family.

 

I will take lead but will stay near the family.

You make your way along the road (fastest). You move about 15 minutes when you are spotted by a a group of pillagers: 3 kobolds come to harass you from behind, and 4 human mercenary types block your way from the front.

 

The humans don't seem to be wearing a cohesive uniform, just whatever clothes and bits of armor they own. They are all wearing black arm bands.

 

One steps forward. "Well well, lookie what we'd got here boys! Some do-gooders trying to act like heroes. Let's show'em what we do to interlopers. I got dibs on that sweet woman..."

He cracks a disgusting smile, liking his lips and barking at Linan.

 

(OOC roll initiative. It is getting darker. Due to the twilight and fires, there is at least dim light. -5 perception checks related to vision (except Darkvision within range). The road here is 20 feet wide. The mercenary speaker is 20 feet away, his chums are 30 feet away. The kobolds are in the other direction, 30 feet away. Scattered trees line the road, big enough to give half cover. Where there is no tree, there are light bushes/hedges here and there which can lightly obscure someone).

Do I recognize the black arm bands as anything? (It's my background thing)

The arm bands, not specific enough yet.

Don't worry, that part of your background will have a chance to shine, I guarantee!

      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.

      Here's some shots from the penultimate session of our D&D game.
       
      The party finally confronts the Sewn Sisters.
      The tiles are from "Dwarven Forge" and "Secret Weapon".  The tables, chairs, and most props are from "Mantic:Terrain Crate", with the cauldron being from an Old Glory Crones set.  
      The Scarecrow & Leomon (Half-Elf Paladin) are from "Reaper Bones".
      The rest of the party are 3D prints, from HeroForge, Desktop Hero, and Miguel Zavala.
      The Sewn Sisters are 3D prints from DarkRealms.
      Everything was hand painted by myself.
       


       
      Cradle of the Death God.
      The tiles are Dwarven Forge.
      The party are 3D prints, with designs from Hero Forge, Desktop Hero, and Miguel Zavala. (One is a Reaper Bones piece)
      The Soulmonger is a 3D print designed by Miguel Zavala.  The God That Never Was is a 3D design by Duncan "Shadow" Louca.
      Everything was painted by myself.  I also added LEDs.

      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.
