Sunless Citadel 5e

Recommended Posts

Fionn takes his leave of the party and drops his pack and gear in his room, then asks Garon if any of his fellow druids or other foresters (who might know more about the Citadel or the goblins) have been seen in the area recently . He then sets out to ask around town to see if anyone can tell him anything more about any of the facts they already have...

Fionn: You ask around. Local druids say Balek while not coming off as a evil, malicious kinda of person, did come off as eccentric & a bit wild. His ways of doing things were to extreme so to speak. The druid does say he was glad the day the man left. He also said the man was never seen again after he left.


You find a ranger patrolling the area & she too says pretty much the same thing about Balek. She also adds that the toad that was with him gave her the creepy vibe. She does add that the ranger, Karakas was a friend of hers & she feels like the party ended in tragedy. As it's been years since she's has heard from him, & it's unlike him to not talk with her at some point in life.


She also says there isn't much out in the outskirts of town, just brush & dirt. She does add thou, that the local ranchers tend to keep their cattle inside at night. Something about the cows being attacked at night. Lots of needle like marks in some of them. There was a old sheep herder that was found dead a few weeks ago thou.  Probably wolves or at the most, the goblins but they keep to the ruins, other then the party that sets up the makeshift stand to sell the apple. Most of the time people avoid 'em. "I mean really who buys from goblins?" she says.


As you wander the town, you come across a group of merchants who are loading up to head out & asking them you get these answers.


"Yah, we've been here a few nights. Decent profits, nothing you can live by for the rest of your life but good for a few weeks."


"We figured, it would be easy trip up here, but the other night just before we got into town we were attacked!! Someone or something started firing needle like quills at us! I got a few in the shoulder but were able to get our wagon close enough to the town, that the attacks just stopped. I have no idea what it was." 


You ask about the party. While it's been years, the memory of the siblings leaving & trying to make a name for themselves is still fresh in most people's minds. A few say that you might wanna talk with their mother, Kerowyn Hucrele. She can be found at the General Store. Being their mother, she'd probably be the source of more information on the whole subject.


Rest of the party: After the meal & drinks, you can retire to your rooms or do whatever you feel like.

So can the rest of us do some sleuthing?

Daton would definitely go around inquiring about the siblings, the apple, the goblins, the citadel in general and likely even go ask questions to the Hucrele matriarch.

You get pretty much the same, other then merchants you talk to a farmer who says one of his dogs was assaulted by the needles just recently, like a couple nights ago. The attack happened around midnight. His dog woke him up. It was barking at something out  in the crops when suddenly a volley of needles came out of crops & stuck his dog. He was able to grab the dog & get inside before being struck himself. Luckily the dog will be ok.


The apple: As you ask around you confirm Garon's story about only 1 person actually having bought a apple, the summer one (the "perfect" apple) & that being the siblings mother, Kerowyn Hucrele.


Goblins: The goblins probably are originating from the Citadel as there aren't really any places for them to hide out in the dusty plains around the town & fortunately for the town, they've actually have kept to themselves. There have been no attacks by them reported. Just the needle attacks.


The Citadel: Most of the town, knows it's there but they are pretty vague at the place. You get a feeling the townsfolk try to forget the place, as it gives off the creepy vibes when asked about it. "Something just not right with that place!"

Blazing' : Discussed with yah during the PM but does anyone else go with Daton to the meeting with Kerowyn? If anything Fionn & the party can meet up around the same time.

The party arrives at the general store. At first appearances, the store front looks well maintained & has a cheery appearance.  As you open the door, a loud bell rings overhead, a few moments later a middle-aged woman with light brown hair pulled back in a bun greets the party. 


"Welcome to my store,  Hucrele Mercantile. I am Kerowyn Hucrele & I am at your service."


she says with a smile.


The store appears well stocked & very clean. There appears to be no weapons or armors for sale thou.

      Is there anyone who might be interested  in a PBP 4e GURPS lite (rules light, no crazy math) portal horror/ mystery modern day adventure.
      1) Gurps 4e is published by Steve Jackson Games, and the free "lite" version of the rules is available online here.
      2) This world is adapted by me from the fiction of Ian Rogers with my own additions.
      3) Character creation rules
      NO MAGIC OR SUPER POWERS or cinematic skills/abilities
      100 points available up to 50 points in disadvantages and 5 quirks as well. If your character concept is disabled, then there's leeway to go over this, but needs discussion with me first
      If you have 4e books or the character creator app, feel free to go for it. Otherwise I will post a list of templates and where they're located that I've vetted to guide you beyond the lite rules.
      A skill at 12/13 is considered professional quality. higher gets you a better ability to handle tough situations and improve chance at a critical. Really high skills might get notoriety (could be good or bad).
      Useful guidance http://forums.sjgames.com/showthread.php?p=369148
      Also this free pdf condensing skills info should be useful
      4) This is set in Toronto and Ontario Canada primarily. Your character doesn't need to be from there, you just need to have an idea of what you're doing there, and specifically to start, what you're doing in the PATH specifically (this will be how you are all introduced). After reading about the world basics, you will also need to think about any supernatural/ blacklands experience your character has had... if any, and if/how they were affected by it.
      The World Basics
      I'm hoping to be able to do a few posts a week, but because I'm new to this, and have limited availability it might be slower than I want. I'm unsure about the number of players - this could work with only a few.
      More later. Feel free to ask questions or express interest.
      If you have and use a skill that will allow you to obtain info/ achieve goal to advance plot, that will happen. I won't make people roll until something happens or things end.
      This site seems to have a decent character generator. There`s step-by-step at the top of the page, and it auto-calculates. Please print to pdf or printscreen or recopy.  so I can review. If you need a template, please let me know. Please set point maximum to 100 (it defaulted to 300 for me).
      Current Characters list:
      1)Magnus Albertson @Dilvish the Deliverer
      2)Sammy @Arkady
      3) Sam Travis @Corsair
      4)TBD @Chaoswolf
      5) Raoul @Colonel Kane
      6) Morgan Faustus @Kangaroorex
      There will be a hard cap at 6 players. And maybe only 5 total. We're closing in on being able to start things.

      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.

      Starfinder: Dead Suns
      by Robert G. McCreary
      Starfinder Adventure Path #1: Incident at Absalom Station © 2017, Paizo Inc. All Rights Reserved. 
      For more info visit www.paizo.com/starfinder 
      You all have received a message from a dwarf by the name of Duravor Kreel, a member of the Starfinder Society. In this message he says he has a offer for you that if your task is successful could bring you notoriety with the Society itself. He wants you to meet him on Absalom Station. After you've arrived he'll  show you around the Station, get settled in & help with your membership into the Society. Why he picked you? The dwarf has heard some things about each one of you off the net & knew you'd be perfect for the job. After your arrived, he'll explain the job in more depth. He excited to see everyone.
      Now,  where or not, your a native of Absalom Station, you've decided that you needed some time away where it's a vacation or a job you're returning on the shuttle, Okimoro. A non-descriptive shuttle like any other that frequents the docking bays of the Station. In particular, Docking Bay 94 ("what a piece of junk".........) on this day.
      Absalom Station
      The brightly lit docks of Absalom Station are abuzz with activity as travelers bustle by, preparing to board or disembarking from starships bound to or from any of dozens of worlds. Brash and swaggering star pilots, scurrying ysoki mechanics, and expectant colonists mingle with enigmatic kasatha mystics, hard-faced asteroid miners, imposing vesk mercenaries, and more, creating a microcosm of the abundance and variety of life in the Pact Worlds. New arrivals meet friends, loved ones, or business contacts, and are whisked away into the humming activity of daily life on the vast space station.
      Docking Bay 94
      Beyond them, ground crews tend to the docked ships, and dockworkers in mechanized cargo lifters load and unload freight and luggage.  A sharp tang of ozone hangs in the air—a byproduct of electrical discharges from the docked ships—but underneath, the station’s atmosphere has a slightly used aroma. The docking bay’s deck plates thrum beneath your feet, though whether it’s from the passage of innumerable feet or the vibrations of the station’s power conduits and air recycling systems is impossible to say.
      Taking in your surroundings the bay looks like any other docking bay, a large, worn yellow painted "94" lays on the floor directly in front of everyone (everyone is in the grey "trapezoid"), that steps off the shuttle. A information kiosk in on your left. There are set of giant double doors North of the party & there are 2 passages that to the side of those doors.
       Anyone outside the shuttle, give me a Perception Check.
