Pinnacle's Forgotten Forge, etc. OoC
Rain falls from the sky. Rivulets of water run down the surfaces of the towers and trace familiar patterns on the unusual architecture of Sharn. The rain and wind obscures vision, making anything but pinpoints of everbright lanterns difficult to make out and making the complex and seemingly random latticework of bridges, walkways, and towers even more difficult to navigate to the uninitiated. In other words, a typical night in the City of Towers.
The events that will take place this night are less typical. The machinations that will be set in place this night are even less so.
A small group of people will find themselves united in a common cause for but a moment, and this moment of unity will propel them forward in a way that few could foresee.
As you make your way through the upper areas of this unique city, will you turn away from the ill-fated skybridge? Or will you be one of those that converges on this spot, for good or ill?
This is a 3.5 Edition Dungeons and Dragons game set in the Eberron Campaign Setting.
There's still a lot of material that I have for this edition that I wanna use, so if you're one of the players planning on completely dumping all of the old stuff for 4th Edition, this probably isn't the game for you.
This game will use the published Eberron modules, "The Forgotten Forge," Shadows of the Last War, Whispers of the Vampire's Blade, and Grasp of the Emerald Claw.
It's fine if you're already familiar with these adventures, but please watch out for metagame knowledge use. I plan to modify most of the encounters at least a little bit anyway.
The game will start in Sharn, the City of Towers and the largest metropolis in Breland (or indeed, in all of Khorvaire). It begins in the Upper City, near Morgrave University, so you should describe why your character is there at the end of his/her/its backstory. Reasons such as "She got lost," "He was exploring," "She's just walking past the university on her way home," or "He felt like taking a walk," are perfectly acceptable, I just need to know where your character is and what he/she's doing to describe it correctly when we start.

I think I covered anything, but let me know if there's something else you need to know.

Pinnacle, I know I'm in another version of this game, but would it be ok if I put together a character for this one? I've got an idea I want to try out and I'd love to run through the whole adventure path.
Go for it.
The other game has a good head-start and seems to be moving a bit faster than this one likely will, so there shouldn't be an issue there, either.

I might want to play a Seren barbarian. Wanting to be in a game I'm DMing feels weird. And renau1g I wanted to do the rest of the adventures after you finished the Forgotten Forge.
Oh, that's great news greenstar.

I'd really like to get involved in this game, if you're willing to take an Eberron newbie. I've just gotten the ECS and I'm about 50 pages into it, and really liking what I'm reading. I'm thinking along the lines of a human rogue.

So I see Complete Arcane on the list, but not Complete Mage- what are your feelings about the Warlock class?
I was thinking a shifter ranger...
I do have Complete Mage; leaving it off the list was an oversight on my part.Originally Posted by pathfinderq1
Warlock's a fine class. You can ignore the alignment restriction if you want to, and I have no problem with reflavoring the abilities to fit different backgrounds better, if needed.

Are there any spots left? I'd like to play... I've played in several Eberron games via PBP that never made it beyond the first or second encounter, and one tabletop Eberron game that ended in a TPK at about 6th level. I like the setting and would really like to explore it more.
I'm thinking either an elven rogue from either House Phiarlan or House Thuranni, or a Warforged bodyguard... perhaps of one of the other PCs or an important NPC. Another idea I had was a shifter barbarian, but I'm not sure how to tie that character into the city, and the first two I'm more interested in playing.
Let me know if there is a spot left, or how you are picking characters. I'd be glad to write up more on any of the above if there's interest in me possibly playing.
If you can't be a good example, then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.
