Full again.


[-]Due to a couple of non posting player, I have decided to open up recruitment again.

I am looking for 1 or 2 replacement players. You can create your own character and I will introduce them as soon as is practical. Players are currently level 3 - anything from PHB, SCAG, or EE.[/-]

Currently playing
Ilvellios (Yavathol)
Sun Monk 3

JV (Thateous)
Rogue 1, Cleric 1, Warlock 1

Erol (Kahless)
Fighter 3

[-]@Trogdor @KahlessNestor @Insight

So we obviously lost all the stuff for this. Are people wanting to start again?

I know I'm missing a couple of people, but I haven't got any offline backups. Annoyingly I deleted what I had just before the crash. So if you three can remember who else was in please tag them too.[/-]

I think I am going to bow out. It turns out that I have a IRL group that just started PotA and I'd rather not be playing a PBP of it at the same time.

Good luck with the game!

If you're still willing to run the game, after losing stuff, then I'd love to fill in for Insight:) Can't remember what classes everyone was, but thinking about a sun soul monk maybe?

We'd only just begun. The characters hasn't even had a proper chance top introduce themselves do a restart its not a problem. You're welcome to fill in for Insight.

I'll try get things back up over the weekend. If Trogdor, Gene and Kahles can remember who the 5th player was that would be helpful.

@Thateus, sorry forgot to tag you in the first post. Are you joining in again?

Aslo I have managed to find a cached version of the Rogues Gallery, so can post your characters here and you can move them over to the new RG when I get it up.

Annoyingly I can get a cached version of the IC thread's first page only, can't decide if that is more annoying than nothing.

Anyway, once I sort my life out I'll get the IC thread up and write a quick summary of what happened (from memory) and drop characters in their respective starting places (the inn or the cavern) and go from there. [MENTION=33284]Yavathol[/MENTION] if you post a character and choose either the inn or the cavern (it'll make more sense when you see the summary) we'll go from there.

I'm hoping to get some time to catch up tomorrow.

When Ilvellios was a young elf in the Misty Forest, his little home village was wiped out by the green dragon Mornaugauth, with only a handful of survivors. He wandered the countryside and cities for some time, slowly growing to maturity as he tried to find his place in the world, before being taken in by an order of monks who saw his potential.

[MENTION=33284]Yavathol[/MENTION], a quick glance at your char looks ok, though we are starting at level 3 and you get 200GP plus normal starting gear.

Ok, that should be updated now:) Pretty straightforward, though I'm sure I'll be glad of the Sun Bolts ability and healing potions!

I'll start in the cavern please TallIan, I remember reading the initial posts before the crash..

Race and Class Features


Speed: 30ft
Divine Sense: As an action, Verek can open his awareness to detect the presence of good and evil beings of power. Until the end of his next turn, Verek knows the location of any celestial, fiend, or undead within 60 ft that is not behind total cover. Verek knows the type of creature, but not its identity. Within the same radius, Verek can also detect consecrated or desecrated places. This is usable up to 3 times and resets after a long rest.
Lay on Hands: Verek has a pool of healing power that replenishes when he takes a long rest. This pool is 15 hit points. As an action, Verek can touch a creature and draw power from this pool to restore a number of hit points to the creature. Verek can spend 5 hit points from this pool to cure the target of one disease or neutralize a poison. This has no effect on undead or constructs.
Fighting Style – Great Weapon: When Verek rolls a 1 or 2 on a damage die for an attack he makes with a melee weapon he wields with two hands, he can reroll the die and must use the second roll. The weapon must have the two-handed or versatile property for Verek to gain this benefit.
Spellcasting: Verek may prepare up to 4 spells. These must be of a level he can cast. Verek has 2 x 1st level spell slots. His spellcasting ability is Charisma. His Spell Save DC is 12 and his Spell Attack Modifier is +4. He can use a holy symbol as a spellcasting focus. His Oath Spells are Ensnaring Strike and Speak with Animals.
Divine Smite: When he hits a creature with a melee weapon attack, Verek can expend a spell slot to deal radiant damage to the target, in addition to the attack’s normal damage. The extra damage is 2d8 for a 1st level slot and 1d8 for each spell level higher than 1st, to a maximum of 5d8. The damage increases by 1d8 if the target is an undead or fiend.
Divine Health: Verek is immune to diseases.
Sacred Oath – Oath of the Ancients: Verek has sworn an oath to the ancient spirits of the natural world. In this capacity, he must follow these tenets.
•Kindle the Light: Through his own acts of mercy, kindness, and forgiveness, Verek must kindle the light of hope.
•Shelter the Light: Verek must stand against the wickedness in the world that would destroy good, beauty, love, and laughter. Where life flourishes, Verek must stand against the forces that would render it barren.
•Preserve your own Light: Verek must delight in song and laughter, in beauty and art. He cannot allow the light to die in his own heart.
•Be the Light: Verek must be a glorious beacon for all who live in despair. His light of joy and courage must shine forth in all of his deeds.

Channel Divinity: Verek has two Channel Divinity options – Nature’s Wrath and Turn the Faithless. This feature resets after any rest.
•Nature’s Wrath: As an action, Verek can cause spectral vines to reach for a creature within 10ft of him that he can see. The creature must succeed on a Str or Dex save or be restrained. While restrained, the creature gets a new save at the end of its turn. On a success, the creature is freed and the vines vanish.
•Turn the Faithless: As an action, Verek presents his holy symbol and each fey or fiend within 30ft must make a Wis save. On a failure, the creature is turned for 1 minute or until it takes damage. A turned creature must spend its turn trying to move away from Verek and it can’t willingly move to a space within 30ft of him. For its action, the turned creature can only use the Dash action or try to escape from an effect that prevents it from moving. If the creature’s true form was concealed, that form is revealed when turned.




Background Features


Life of Seclusion: Verek needed to commune with nature, far from human civilization.
Feature – Discovery: Through time spent in seclusion, Verek has learned some great secret of the cosmos, the deities, the outer planes, or forces of nature. (Need to work with the DM to determine what this is and how it impacts the game)



Feats


Great Weapon Master: On Verek’s turn, when he scores a critical hit with a melee weapon or reduces a creature to 0 hit points with one, he can make one melee weapon attack as a bonus action. Before he makes an attack with a heavy weapon, Verek can choose to take a -5 penalty to the attack roll. If the attack hits, Verek adds +10 to the attack’s damage.



Equipment


Magic Items: None
Mundane Items
Wealth: Coins – 0pp, 45gp, 9sp, 10cp
Items – Splint Mail, Greatsword, Lt. Crossbow, 20 Bolts, Dungeoneer’s Pack (Backpack, Crowbar, Hammer, 10 Pitons, 10 Torches, Tinderbox, 10 Days of Rations, Waterskin, 50ft of Hempen Rope), Grappling Hook, Bedroll, Hooded Lantern, 5 Flasks of Oil, 10 Iron Spikes, Herbalism Kit, Pendant Symbol of a Blue Unicorn (Mielikki).
Mount – Donkey (Riding Saddle, Saddlebags, Bit & Bridle, 10 Days’ Feed)



Characteristics and Personal Details


Personality Trait – Empathy: Verek has tremendous empathy for all who suffer.
Ideal – Greater Good: Verek believes that his gifts are meant to be shared to further good causes, not used for his personal benefit.
Bond – Enlightenment: Verek still pursues enlightenment on the portentous dreams he’s had. He needs answers.
Flaw – Curiosity: Verek would risk much to uncover hidden knowledge.

Age: 35 | Height: 6’4” | Weight: 240lbs | Hair: Platinum Blond | Eyes: Blue

Verek worships Mielikki, the goddess of autumn, druids, dryads, forests, forest creatures, and rangers.
He is a member of the Shadoweirs. This group serves as a type of religious knighthood of the woods. Members are activist and proselytize with zeal, and are willing to go on the offensive on behalf of their sacred forests. They seek to advance the regrowth of ancient forests reduced by civilization, and to halt the endless assault of civilization on their ancient homeland.

BACKSTORY:

When he was barely an adult Snikkelfritz's village was raided by Drow slavers, and those who were not captured, were killed. Somehow these Drow managed to sell their slaves to buyers on the surface, and one such buyer was a Dwarf named Baldric Stonefist, who bought Snikkelfritz, and many other slaves as well, putting them to work in various taverns he helped keep running, as cooks, servers, and other help.
Snikkelfritz was different though, Baldric saw something special in the deep gnome, and he pulled Snik from his work after only a couple days, bringing him to his own home, where he taught Snik the art of cooking himself, helping him secure membership in the Guild.
Baldric taught Snik much more than culinary arts though, as Baldric had selected Snik for a reason, to be the sole recipient of his Martial Arts techniques. The two spent many years training together before Snik truly started to master 'The Way of the Stonefist', as Baldric called it, and yet even more years to come close to the skill of his master, when one day, Baldric grew very sick.
Baldric lay on his deathbed when he told Snik he was no longer the Svirfneblin he had once bought from the Drow in secret, but much more than that now. Baldric took him as his heir, giving him the Stonefist name to carry on, as well as the the knowledge of his ultimate move, the only one left for Snik to finally match his master's level of skill.
The legendary 'Earthshattering Blow' his master had always spoke of, but Snik had never thought to be true. It was true though, and now all Snik must do is locate the other 2 scrolls, as Baldric left him the first of the three when he died.

Nariah Fairgrove
Half-elf Warlock 3
Folk Hero/Charlatan AL CG
Str 8 Dex 14 Con 11 Int 14 Wis 14 Cha 16



Background


My sister and I were inseperable. We worked for our father, a human merchant who ran a little farmer’s market. I was the one who did the selling, she kept things organized and good looking. It was a provincial little life, but we were happy. My mother, I never met. She met my father in our local inn as she was travelling through. She returned 9 months later with two bundles and a sack of gold. My father used that money to provide a good life for us, then left it and the business to us when he passed away.

The Harald came into our lives. A silver-tongued bard named Harald Grayspear Set up shop in our town. My sister was smitten. Unfortunately, he was a villian. He used my sister to get access to the gold, and killed her and burned down our home when she tried to stop him.

I was grief stricken. I ran into the woods screaming. I wanted him to PAY. I called out for help, stumbling through the woods, not noticing the faerie ring that brought me to HER. The most beautiful and terrible thing I have seen, I can’t describe the presence. She offered me power beyond imagining if I used it to help women in need. She promised me one day I would kill Harald Grayspear. Then she returned me to the world. It was months later, our home and business were rebuilt by a newcomer, I had nowhere to turn. I made my way through the world conning and thieving. I learned to survive. And I helped women.

She came to me in dreams, teaching me power beyond imagining. I learned to do so much more than other mortals. I was touched by her presence, I scoured Faerun, helping those who needed it, stealing from those who could afford it. My reputation grew. And I sought after Harald. He calls himself Windharrow now, supposedly. Rumors put him in the Dessarin Valley, that’s where I shall be.



Appearance & Personality



Traits: I haven’t truly smiled since my sister died. I’m very good at faking them, however.
Physical power is nothing compared to the wonders of the arcane.
Ideal: Women should be free to be their own person, just as men are. Those in power who disagree must be dealt with.
Bond: Nothing is more important that making Harald Grayspear pay.
Flaw: She trusts women and their stories a lot more than she should.

Hair: Red
Eyes: Green
Skin: Fair
Height: 5’3”
Weight: 110 lbs
Age: 23
Description:
A beautiful half-elf woman, exemplifying the best of both races, Nariah has a coldness to her eyes that betrays the hardened path she has had in life.
