    Deepwater's Despair - Active - Roll Call!

    At the request of a PbP newbie, I am beginning a simple 1st level game. You will be a group of adventurers who have just come together. Traveling westward from the trading town of Willow Grove, you're traveling to Albon, a free-trade city, prosperous and powerful, where employment can be found easily. This will take place in my homebrew of Low'verok. Link for information is in my sig, and a map of the area can be found here. (This was graciously made for me by another player by the SN of peteyfrogboy.)

    You will be 1st level characters, 3.5 rules.

    Stats will be rolled as 4d6 drop the lowest, arrange as desired, using the roller at Nadak's DiceBox. If that's not working, use Invisible Castle or Vacuum Elemental.

    Races and classes will be as per the core rule books.

    Gold will be max for your class, hit points are max as usual for 1st level.

    Items may be drawn from the core rule books and/or the Arms and Equipment Guide.

    Our Brave Adventurers

    Manzanita - Sargon the Barbarian [CG Male Human Barbarian 1]

    dead_radish - Tyralis Deephome [NG Male Elf Ranger 1]

    Erekose13 - Fasithe "Fluke" Lightfingers [CG Male Halfling Rogue 1]

    ender_wiggin - Torug "Little Bull" Skyhammer [CN Male Halfling Cleric of Talos 1]

    LogicsFate

    Bront

    Inactive players and characters

    carhesl - Korrim of Deepwater [N Male Human Fighter 1]

    Mordane76 - Prendalin of Crosston [LN Male Human Necromancer 1]

    I must admit I'm interested. I've long wanted to join an Isida game. I'm in quite a few games already, so I'll step aside if a newby needs a place. I debated whether to join, so I thought I'd go ahead & roll up my scores and see if fate had this game in mind for me. I couldn't get Nadak's dicebox to roll for me, so I used Invisible Castle. The dice told me to join this game. I think I would want to make a human Barbarian with this, but I'll try to read up on Lowverok a bit first...

    Manaanita, Erekose13, glad to have you two. Invisible Castle is fine if Nadaka's is down. Vacuum Elemental is good too.

    As for how you guys met, my world is rather big on guilds. If you're a member of the Adventurer's Guild, you pay dues to the guild. The guild will help find you jobs, keep track of your successes, help you a bit with identifying things and whatnot. If the guild had been trying to put together some temporary groups in Willow Grove, and you were all there for one reason or another, that's a very simple way for you to have all met.

    I read your Low'verok description (not for the first time.) It's rich, but there's not a lot of history. The PC I'm designing I'm thinking is a clone of an ancient hero. The 'clone' spell used is more like the 1E version, since it wouldn't work with the current spell. I'll write up some history for him if its OK. Hopefully should post it tonight.

    I have some history for Low'verok, but not a lot. I like to see what people come up with, and I end up integrating player's ideas into my world. So if you want to mention about some ancient war, or horrible plague, or something, feel free to make up whatever you need to.

    elder_wiggin - Glad to have you. You can make any character you please. I think I'm capable of working with any party, so you make what you like.

    These are my stats (15/15/15/14/13/8)

    I was thinking of a halfling cleric. Unless Manzanita changes his mind about the human barbarian; stats are perfect for that.

    Do you have house rules?

    Should I post him here or will you open a thread in the rogue's gallery?

    I'll have a Rogue's gallery here shortly. Hold onto your characters until then. I don't believe I have any house rules that would affect a 1st level character, so you should be fine.

    Here we go, I rolled too: http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=44019 (17,17,15,13,13,12) man that is some nice rolling! I'll play whatever the group needs, as another experienced pbper i can fit in any roll we need. That said I have a few ideas ranging from human fighter or monk to an enchanter. I'll hold off and build after a couple of characters have been created (should give me time to read up a bit on Lowverok)

    geez, Erekose, our stats are almost identical. Mine are 17. 17. 15. 14. 13. 12. Maybe we could play twins. Anyway, I'm well into the design of my human barbarian, & would prefer not to change. There might be room for two. Sargon will pobably multiclass as a fighter.

    Ashy, Speed-Stick, I shall put you on the alternate list.

    The Storm domain is from the Forgotten Realms Campaign Setting, as I bogarted most of their pantheon for my homebrew.

    Character History:
    Sargon awoke with a start. The pain in his hand was gone, but where was he?

    He looked about in confusion. He was in some sort of arcane laboratory. An old man in black robes, with bones through his ears stood over him, looking elated.

    “Ah! You awake! Welcome back to life Sargon the Overking, demon slayer, destroyer of the lich Anamaxakatra, killer of the red dragon Ataxeres! Awake to your new life!”

    This wizard was clearly deranged. Sargon had never seen a demon or dragon, let alone killed one. He flipped neatly to his feet beside the cot on which he lay. He realized he was completely naked. Yet the two heavily armored guards took a step back. They were afraid of him, he realized.

    “Relax, relax. Sit down.” Commanded the necromancer in his nasal voice. “We have much to discuss. We have a world to conquer. You are Sargon Dragon Bane. You lived nearly 1000 years ago in these very lands. And you are perhaps the greatest warrior ever to live. Come work with me. There is much to conquer. The current kingdom is corrupt. I have the arcane ability to do what must be done, but I need a capable warrior to lead my forces. You will be well rewarded for your efforts.”

    Sargon had no interest in this. He bolted for the door, his mouth letting out a scream of rage. As he suspected, the two armed guards had no interest in crossing this naked youth, and stepped aside in fear. Dashing out the door, Sargon leapt out a small window, almost to his death. Fortunately, he was able to catch a tree branch and alight on the ground with no broken bones. He saw a horse, and ran towards it. The groom seemed unaccustomed to naked men attacking him in these well-groomed estate. Sargon jerked the reins from his hand, and rode to freedom.

    Later having sold his horse and its ornamental accoutrements for a tidy sum, he set off to find his place in this strange and unfamiliar world. He purchased armor and weapons suitable for traveling the roads.

    He’s hard pressed to believe the reasons for his marvelous rebirth. But clearly someone took a lot of bother to resurrect him, and will probably try to get him back. As such, Sargon watches his back, though he doesn’t bother to change his name. He’s currently suspicious of a certain cloaked figure whom he has seen several times recently. He hasn’t seen a face, but his hands have plentiful reddish hair, and he carries several axes. A bounty hunter of sorts, perhaps.

    OOC: I envision Sargon was the greatest warrior of his era, nearly 1000 years ago. (I'm basing him on a 1E PC I played for years around junior high, who reached the improbably fighter level of 34) Attempting to bring him back to life as his servent, the mighty necromancer Omega managed to locate a piece of his body in the bay of . Using a specialized clone spell, Omega was able to bring Sargon back to life. Unfortunately for Omega, the piece of Sargon he had located was a finger bitten off by a crocodile in a hunting accident when Sargon was a mere youth. Long before his glory days. As such he resurrected a 1st level barbarian.

    While some bards and elves remember Sargon and his crew, most people probably would not. (of course that’s your decision.) Sargon himself thinks it unlikely that he could ever have been such a hero and is dismissive of this legend (should he hear about it). Why did the necromancer resurrect him? Had Sargon become a cruel conquorer later in life? Did he expect Sargon to know where his great sword Godslayer was hidden? I’m trying not to know more than Sargon would know.

    Born and raised in near the Sea of Song about 1000 years ago, near the Firespine mountains, Sargon’s tribe fought humanoids and occationally set their longships onto the sea for raids.
