  • The Burning of Kindle

    [sblock=OOC Preamble]To those interested in this epic fantasy setting, I have pre-made characters available but am happy to consider your ideas! As stated, using the M&M 2nd Ed rules as they seem the simplest and, to my mind, best fit.



    I would be looking at having players start at Power Level 5 to begin with, until we'd all warmed into it a bit! THe premise would be a group of people that already know each other in some way, who all live the city of Kindle that is mentioned later on - this city is under threat from the Malazan Empire and our story would start off with the players being involved in Kindle's response to that. The details will be fully fleshed out once some people are on board



    The following is just background, to give you some idea - note, have referenced several sources and none of this is my own![/sblock]



    In the Free City of Kindle, a small city that sits to the north of Greenwater Lake on the Rhivi Plain. Its position is neither strategic nor particularly advantageous in terms of trade or resources but Kindle has prospered. It may not match the tall spires of Pale or the cosmopolitanism of Darujhistan, but it has its own charms.

    Kindle is governed by the Five Houses:

    House of Blades, essentially the city’s own assassin’s guild which serves the functions of keeping petty squabbles amongst the other Houses from spilling out onto the cobbled streets of Kindle

    House of Faith, these are representatives of the many religions that have temples within Kindle’s walls

    House of Wyrd, a collection of prominent mages and scholars

    House of Manners, the nobles of Kindle that can trace their lineage back to the city’s founding

    House of Coins, arguably the most influential House as it comprises the city’s most successful, and therefore wealthy, merchants

    The expansion of the Malazan Empire had appeared to pass Kindle by, lying so far to the west it was believed that this small city had been largely ignored by Malazan strategists. Boasting little of import save its excellent relations with the Rhivi tribes and as such indirectly support the efforts of the mercenary company the Crimson Guard, and the Ascendant Caladan Brood, to drive back the encroaching forces of the Malazan Empire.

    But news has arrived of Pale’s fall, and the Empress has turned her eye on the ‘glittering jem of Genabackis’ that is Darujhistan. The legendary Moon’s Spawn, which had been described as: “ ..Ragged as a blackened tooth, the basalt fortress was home to the most powerful enemy the Malazan Empire had ever faced. High above the earth, Moon’s Spawn could not be breached by siege. Even Laseen’s own undead army, the T’lan Imass, who travelled as easily as dust on the wind, were unable, or unwilling, to penetrate its magical defences.”, was said to have been driven off by the Malazan High Mage and his cadre. Even now a Malazan company as detached itself from the clearing of Pale and is moving towards Kindle across the Rhivi Trail towards Greenwater Lake…

  • The Untamed Wilds

    Shakespeare said, "All the world is a stage, the men and women merely players."

    Homebrew Setting:
    This is a magic infusion, early technology, fantasy world. The particular technological age is deliberately set at the late Iron Age moving into the Golden Age of Discovery so that the non-combat related actions of the characters have a direct effect on political, social, and technological development.

    - Races / Character Description -
    All characters should be humanoid, meaning 2 arms and 2 legs. No tails, wings, feathers, or scales at inception, of a relative height from 4' to 8', with general earth tone coloration (melaninic) or yellow to reddish (caratenoic) or some hue from black to white (chromatic). Star Wars has its own diversity. The people of this world are more uniform.

    - Classes / Levels -
    In a beginning adventure to a beginning campaign. The term beginner is important. Classes are only relevant to the players own vocabulary and archetypal design not to the playable mechanics of this system. Diversity is pliable to all, free of penalty. Beginning age of characters should be late adolescent to early adult for relative plausibility.

    - Equipment / Money -
    As per the introduction, the technological age is late iron. This is important to starting gear. Suits of armor have never even been heard of, much less seen. Metal weaponry does, of course, exist but it is general and simple. Rapiers and katanas and such are yet to be designed, waiting on character input and alloy component discovery. Some indigenous peoples are still using weaponry made of stone or bone.

    All characters may begin with a simple melee weapon no larger than a longsword or single-blade fighting axe and/or a simple bow (long or short) with 20 arrows. If choosing knives, small swords, or hand axes, a character may begin with 2. Clothing should be homespun, wool, or cotton, no armor yet. Shields or bucklers are small and will be made of wood or hide.

    The base currency is a medium sized coin made of tin that has various names from the 4 cities where it is minted but the same value. All characters are considered to have acquired 20 coins at the start of play. This is more than adequate. You will see.

    System:
    This may come across as strange, but the system of origin for your character is irrelevant. I can use whatever stats you already have to relate them to what is important to keep track of development through play. Everyone has a favorite archetype or character. The question is can you take it and develop it through your own ability to play it, outside the rigid parameters of a gaming system? Where would you take it if the next step were entirely up to you?

    Technical Mechanics are based on percentile and advancement is a point-buy system.

    The world is called The Untamed Wilds

  • Arcanum of the Stars

    Arcanum of the Stars is both the name of my Dragonstar campaign and one of the main forces behind that campaign. However, Arcanum of the Stars (AotS), the campaign, isn't going to be just about that one power group. Many other resources whether D&D, D20, or something else entirely has influenced how Arcanum of the Stars has developed and will continue to be developed. And not only is Arcanum of the Stars a campaign, it is also designed to be a Dragonstar resource for other players and GMs to add new material to their own Dragonstar campaigns.

  • The Volunteer Zombie Eradication Force

    Towering directly over your head is an ragged and imposing drill sergeant in his fifties. His tidily worn fatigues mock his appearance and presence: his leathery, scarred face wrinkles a hundred times over and he spits as he talks. Looking directly into your eye, into your soul, he yells,
    "This is where all V.Z.E.F. recruits come to learn how to survive the madness of the apocalyptic world.
    Report here to gear up and to find out how, when and where you will be stationed!
    Check back to take on new missions (if available) and to meet other recruits.
    If this is where it all ends, then this is where it all begins. Soooooound GOOD?!"

    Ok, but seriously...

    This is just a place to get started before you even know what's going on.
    Some won't know what D&D is let alone table top role playing games, let alone what this site is for.
    Some of you won't have a character yet, some will. Either way, if you're new you're in the right place.

    For anyone interested in the Volunteer Zombie Eradication Force, 3.5 D&D, undead apocalypse campaign (aka VZEF Camp), this Community is for:

    - making friends
    - any kind of general conversation (out of character)
    - learning about what Dungeons & Dragons is and how to play
    - deciding what type of game and character you want to play
    - choosing a group you wish to play with (unless you are playing solo)

    Finally, and I really shouldn't have to mention this, but...

    Please be respectful, even if you can't be kind.
    No racism, no sexism, basically... if it end in ism and you're unsure, don't post it.
    No erotic fantasy talk (in character or out of character) unless you're in a forum/thread that states you can.
    Keep the profanity to a minimum. If you're going to use it, use it right.
    No nudity!
