Recruiting! In the Service of Cyre [4ed Eberron]
I have decided to try my hand at running a 4ed PbP.
The Premise: The War of Usurpers has been raging on for years. In Cyre, her majesty the Queen employs every tool she can lay hands on to defend her realm and reclaim the Throne of Galifar to which she has the rightful claim: the Warforged of House Cannith, various Magebred creations from House Vadalis, the church of the Sovereign Host, mercenaries from abroad, and the heroes of her own country. One of the youngest of these heroes is her own son, Prince Oargev. He leads a brave band of adventurers loyal to him and to Cyre, doing what he can to help in the war effort.
You, the PCs, will be playing as Prince Oargev and his sworn companions. The first adventure will start when the Prince is barely 17 years old, sent on important, but supposedly safe, affairs of state.
Note on the Mourning: I am not afraid to change Eberron’s history to tell this story. The PCs all should believe in the success of Cyre, or at least the Prince—even when you, the players, know what approaches for Cyre.
Sources: Any WotC 4ed source. No 3rd party sources. Follow your archetype.
1st level; 100 gp. While many characters will technically be richer than this, 100 gp represents what you have carrying around with you.
1. Which Archetype do you match?
2. 1 paragraph (3-8 sentences) backstory about how you met Prince Oargev and entered his service.
3. 1 paragraph (3-8 sentences) description (both physical and personality).
4. Character Sheet. Please either attach a Builder sheet or use the Summary format from character builder.
5. Magic items (level 2-10) you would be interested in seeing your PC obtain at some point. This locks you into nothing.
6. Which Paragon Path you’d maybe be interested in pursuing if the game makes it that far. This locks you in to nothing.
You will be competing against other people in your Archetype and other people in your Role. Also, I would like a fairly steady post rate (3-4 times a week maybe?) that picks up a bit in combat. We'll work out details beyond this when a list is posted.
Recruiting is closed.
Final selection will be made sometime Friday.
I want a Prince Oargev and 3-5 interesting companions for him. I want a well-rounded party. I want to provide a fun gaming experience for any and all involved.
