LPF - The Road to Tritower
A LPF Adventure for Beginning Characters


GM: Aura
Judge: jkason
Start Date: July 28, 2014


Player List and Initial XP/level:
Brandon the Swift (epicbob) 0 xp/level 1
Leira Olren (Anastrace) 0 xp/level 1
Karra (Lindeloef) 0 xp/level 1
Francis John III (FrancisJohn) 0 xp/level 1 (added Aug 23, 2014)


GM Expectations/Rules/Whatnot:


(1) I try to be a supportive GM and hope everyone will have fun. My message box is open if you need to contact me privately.
(2) I like the coyotecode.net die roller best for it's most direct roll history function (assuming you use the same name every time). I will probably make my own life easier with just good 'ol physical dice.
(3) We're doing group initiative using average initiative value, which means that once your team has the initiative, actions can be resolved in whatever order people post. Those on the losing team (initiative-wise) side, with above team average initiative scores, might be awarded (a pre-initiative action if their individual value beats the entire winning team.
(4) Players are encouraged to at least check on the game on a daily basis. When real life makes posting that difficult or impossible, please leave AFK messages if possible.
(5) Please include a Mini Stats sblock with every post that has some sort of mechanical effect, from combat to skill rolls. Feel free to use this one from my own character (Charity) as a model and then modify to fit your characters (changing values, adding/removing special abilities, etc):

[/sblock]
(6) I may make some rolls for you, such as perception checks, saving throws, opportunity attacks, etc, to move the adventure along smoothly. If you anticipate needing a roll (say you suspect an opponent will move in such a way as to provoke your attack of opportunity) you *may* 'preroll' it, however, put the actual roll/damage in a spoiler block. I will only open it if the AoO was triggered.
(7) Above all, have fun. Remember to respect your fellow players so they can, too.

OOC: Took me long enough to find this place. I thought it would be on the LPF forum, rather than the general gaming sub-forum.

Judge Placeholder

[sblock=ooc]Nothing to see here. Just a placeholder in case I need to add any judge-y stuffs. :) [/sblock]

Anna Kallira. . . . . . . . . . .Anton Torelli
The guard leads his charge to one of the seats and pulls the chair out for her before allowing her to sit down. He then waits patiently before allowing each of you to file in, until it looks like nobody else is interested in the job he offers. The priestess, on the other hand, sits there, taking in her environment, running her finger up and down the table slowly.

The priestess' escort begins to speak, "I am Anton Torelli, head guard at the Temple of Cortesia, The Bright Lady. This," He gestures to the young woman, "is Priestess Anna Kallira. If you are here, it is for the purpose of employment with a time frame of 2 weeks and lots of travel, and she is your primary concern."

Anna nods her head in agreement as the guard lays out the overview to the group of you. Finally, Anton adds "And, who all might you be?"

[sblock=skydreamz]I please don't miss the questions I asked in the DWI tavern thread. Post the answers here with your first post. Thank you.

PS: The game is live and you are now earning time-based experience and gold.[/sblock]

Brandon the Swift

"I call myself Brandon. Brandon the Swift."

He sets his backpack down before getting comfortable in a chair.

"I am a man of magical talents. Quite literally."

Leira Olren

"My name is Leira Olren sir, a martial artist from the temple of Amenthia near Tritower."

Leira takes a bite of pheasant before continuing, "I've been to Tritower many times, in fact I actually joined a merchant caravan from there to Venza to arrive here just a few days ago."

[section]The guard nods politely as Brandon introduces himself. Perhaps he is experienced enough to know what the magician is implying, or perhaps it takes a lot to shake him.

Either way, Leira chimes in next with her introduction. He looks at her a little seriously and replies, "I didn't actually say Tritower, funny you should mention it…." The guard's eyes narrow on her, considering her a moment.

"I'm sure it's pretty obvious," Anna pipes up, speaking in the general direction of her armed escort. "There just isn't anywhere else to go that takes a week in each direction. Nowhere that matters, anyway." That said, the priestess adjusts herself in her seat.

Anton harrumphs. "I suppose."[/section]

Leira laughs nervously, "Ah, well a pleasure to make your acquaintance all." trying to smooth things over in her not so graceful way.

[sblock=ooc]/facepalm, well I've got the poor social graces down at least. :)[/sblock]

Anton Torelli
Anton seemingly accepts Leira's explanation. Or, at least, he doesn't pursue the issue further. Rather, he stands, saying, "I thought I saw one or two more fellows out there looking like they were interested, let me go call out."With that, the head guard of the temple of Cortesia heads to the door, "Anyone else for a job? Two week run time, spots open!" As he heads back in, the only one following him is Marla, and she is armed with dinner, not weapons. Her expedient delivery seems to please the Priestess Anna, but Anton's mind is elsewhere.
[sblock]Making sure to get everyone in and situated before the job description.[/sblock]

[sblock=ooc]I sent him a private message a while back. Also, his profile page says he hasn't done anything on the website since last week.[/sblock]

Anna Kallira
Anna stops eating a moment to speak, "I have yet to visit the Temple of Amenthia, and perhaps it could be arranged once I've arrived in Tritower and have gotten work started there." The priestess slowly swirls the soup with her spoon, not setting it down while as she speaks some more, "When my healing gift was first bestowed upon me, the senior priests wondered if the the followers of Amenthia had seen anything similar, in hopes of finding someone I could 'trade notes' with, per se." She lifts the spoon up for another sip.

As conversation progresses, Anton seems to be conversing with someone back out in the bar area. After a short conversation, he steps aside, clearing a path into the room.

A young Woman enters the room. The guard outside said you were hiring. I am here to offer my services. Hmm..." She stops for a moment "My name is Karra by the way"


[sblock="ooc"] [MENTION=99102]epicbob[/MENTION] quick question, since Brandon voice parts are bold, does he speak up louder/shouts, or is it just a way to mark his speech parts?[/sblock]

Anna Kallira
Inside the meeting room, a surprisingly youthful appearing woman receives the latest recruit. "Please, come in, sit down, and tell us about yourself. We are apparently going to be together for a couple of weeks."

Although her demeanor is friendly, it is as if the priestess' gaze goes right through Karra.

"Oh yes of course. Hmm..." Karra hesitates and takes a seat "As I said, I am Karra. I am kinda new to this Mercenary and Adventure business.. Hmmm... " She takes a short break "But that doesn't mean I am not competent! I am competent with the ways of the sword and magic and am eager to use those skills. Hmm..." She pauses a moment "Also I am both of Human and Elven heritage. I hope no one here is xenophobic towards Elves."

[sblock=ooc]@Lindeloef My bolded text is simply my normal speech.[/sblock]Brandon thanks Marla as she hands him his soup. He goes to take his first sip before hearing Karra's last statement.

"Xenophobic?" Brandon asks with a bit of incredulity. "Wouldn't such a thing be obvious?"

With a smirk, he adds: "Besides, as far as I am concerned, I hate everyone equally."

He then takes a sip and seems satisfied by the soup's flavor.
