Kulan: Knightfall's Aerie of the Crow God Game [OOC]

I should also mention that while "Crow God" is going to get going again, I'm holding off on restarting the Bluffside game, for now. It will get going again, but I feel I must move forward with the C.G. game first since it has been going on, off and on, the longest.

I don't want to burn myself out again.

Hello.

I actually DID play 3e, but it was some time ago.

I'd be interested in new 'work' ;), over the winter I have a lull at work so enough time to create something new. The summer is our prime time (and I am known to disappear at times over the summer, but I try to announce it in advance).

If you'll have me.

You're welcome to join the game after we get through the next major encounter. It's pivotal to the current characters. If some of previous players aren't available anymore, there could be an older PC (now NPC) for you to "temporarily" play in that scene.

There is an old PC character that has been on the shelf for a while and has been an NPC too. He is called Lorien and is a elven bard. However, my plan is to write that character completely out of the game in a later scene. You could play that character for the next scene and then we can introduce your new PC after that scene is over.

The other option is simply to come up with a new v.3.5 character and then wait until the PCs are back to their home base, a small village called Carnell, to join the game.

The game is strictly a v.3.5 game, so you'd have to refamiliarize yourself with those rules. You don't have to make super complex character, however. If you want to stick to what you can find online, if you don't have the books anymore, that's okay.

The pace will be slow. I don't foresee myself replying more than once a week. Too much more than that burns me out.

Let me know if that's okay with you,

Cheers!

@MetaVoid, another option, that might make more sense, is for you to make a PC that is specifically tied to the region and the current game. This could be a character I've previously mentioned in the game (I can send you a list) or a character that is returning to Carnell after being away for years.

That could be interesting. 🤔

That way, if you meet the PCs on the road, we could say that your PC grew up in Carnell and would know @JustinCase's PC, Caerth. They could have been friends or rivals. That way, it wouldn't seem to odd for your Pc to get involved in the current fight. Perhaps your character learned of the troubles going on at home and felt a need to return and help.

Thoughts?

p.s. Here's the campaign guide: [v.3.5] Campaign Guide: Crow God PbP Game!

Thanks! Either options is fine with me. I can play a bard. As a matter of fact, my last (pathfinder) character was a bard. Would a marshal be allowed? It is 'bard-like'...if I take over the bard (and it remains a bard) can I do some makeover?

I've looked over the characters - you already have a bard (divine one) - is it also one of NPCs?
Lorien is a strange bard with higher int than cha...

I can take Lorien over, I like the story - still would like a marshal, but bard can work. I cannot find Beloved leader feat. Finally, if I progress him to 11th, what prestige classes are allowed? I remember from early days it was what you used to specialized the character after around 5th-8th level (prestiges were in essence precursors of PF archetypes).

Players: would do you need most (pick two)? A rogue, diplomat, caster, frontliner, healer, fifth-wheel?

After thinking about it, I'd say just make you're own character.

A marshal would be interesting. I've never had a player play a marshal before. :unsure:

For prestige classes, I'm open to using almost anything from an official sourcebook. I own almost all the v.3.5 books. But lets avoid using anything from one of the setting books. So, no prestige classes from Forgotten Realms, Eberron, Dragonlance, etc.

Let me know your ideas, and I'll let you know if there is anything that goes against the 'feel' of Harqual and the Strandlands. It should be fine.
 




Neurotic

I plan on living forever. Or die trying.
We have :
Druid 11
Evoker 8 / Paragon 3
Cleric 5 / Ordained champion 4 / Divine disciple 2
Centaur 7 / Ranger 3 / Reeve 1
Fighter ?? NPC?
Divine bard NPC

Kinda heavy on melee, short on rogues/skills

So...bard / marshal (melee)/ dragon shaman (more melee) to enhance the front line could be useful...or an overkill :D

So...options in order of preference:
  1. human marshal - went to the dragons for help because something/someone (Lord Pandour?) sent him on some divination (Aeron?) - he is/was a lesser commander of the guard at the castle - his months with the dragons resulted in dragon devotee (or dragon shaman or both) levels (I need to check the progression of the Marshal class)
  2. draconic creature (probably human or azurin if allowed) monk 6 / fist of the forest 3 (draconic fluff) / sacred fist (or some other monk PrC) - the idea is "the dragons are taking a hand in the current crisis" - the problem: no connection to the players that I can see
  3. Bard with Mourner alternative class features (or was it PrC?!) - hazy memory hmmm...whatever, he would be from Carnell, just doing his rounds as the undertaker
  4. Spellthief - just thinking aloud - skill monkey with trapfinding, hopefully more interesting than plain rogue - going into Shadow dancer for always on hide in plain sight

If allowed, a level of several levels of a Binder might add some extra auras/powers

What is the starting wealth? Or number of items?

Summary of questions :) I'm going marshal route, Knightfall said he didn't have one earlier
1. Starting wealth? (or number of items) - I'll start with default wealth for 11th level
2. Can I take Ancestral relic + Anointed knight PrC (feat is a prerequisite) from Book of Exalted deeds)
3. Are flaws allowed (the story calls for honorable, I can play it that way without flaws, but if I can get a feat... ;) 'My word is my bond'
4. We need to hammer out a story - I wrote some ideas up in the post #3657 for Carnel - I can take other variants to be connected to Angus or even an NPC
5. There are nifty things in dragon magazines - such as serrated / weighted weapons and reinforced armor - but I need to find my archive to be able to reference any of it :( - but in general, are they allowed?
6. Magic item compendium has a nice marshal item set. Can I have it? It fits easily within wealth-by-level...

That's an interesting thought, but Lord Pendour died quite some time ago, and he might not have had that strong connection to the dragons of the Strandlands. Aeron is more likely. Dragon Shaman is an interesting choice and I'm fine with it.

For draconic creatures, I do have a custom version of the Dragonborn that's more 4e/5e-like than 3e-like. Here's a link to the stats I've created: Dragonborn of Harqual. I also have a homebrewed racial origin/species called the Dragontouched. It is LA +1 and is based off of the Draconic Creature template.

The Incarnum book isn't available for this campaign. Those 'rules' only exist in a very isolate section of my world and that doesn't include the Lands of Harqual. The Draconomicon and Dragon Magic are my 'go to' sourcebooks for dragon options for Kulan.

A monk character would be interesting and there is a 'very interesting' connection to a group of monks near Carnell that could work for such a character. I'll post more about that a bit later.

The Mourner prestige class is in Dragon Magazine #311. I'm certain I have a copy of that magazine, somewhere, so I'll take a look. It should be fine.

This is a interesting choice. note, however, that the game has mainly took place in rural, wilderness, and dungeon environments. Still, there are plots that will take the PCs into the cities of the Strandlands, eventually.

MetaVoid said:

While I have that book, I'm not very familiar with that class. So, let's say no for now, and we might revisit it later.

MetaVoid said:

Starting wealth is the standard amount for an 11th-level PC character, so 66,000 gp.

Sorry I didn't get back to you right away, EN World crashed on me yesterday while I was trying to write this reply.
