Original Against the Slavelords Recruitment Thread


This is the OCC thread for my Scourge of the Slavelords PBP game.

Please repost your characters here with all your updates and magic items.

Questions and Answers go here. And the game is afoot.



House Rules
Right now we only have a few

Rolling Dice: Most of the time I will allow you to roll your own dice but for Initiative (just to get any combats going as fast as possible), or certain secret rolls I will make them. Otherwise when making any of your rolls, please use the one here on EN World and have them at the bottom of you post. You can use a third party online roller so long as you post the results and the link to your roll at the bottom of your post.

If you opt for the EN World roller, this is the nomenclature you use:


{roll}1d20+3{/roll}
{roll}4d8{/roll}
{rollv}2d6{/rollv} – displays each roll separately

You replace the { } with [ ]. You can name your dice rolls, too. This:

{roll=Initiative}1d20+2{/roll}

will yield this result:

Initiative - (1d20+3)[22]


Group Initiative: Everyone will still get a roll, but if the group of characters wins they all go first but if the set of bad guys wins they all go first, etc.

Inspiration: with at least a good basic background (and those not familiar with Greyhawk can just use generic terms and we can fill in as we go) that you will start with 1. When you really play up your Personality Traits or Flaw, and its’ a good point in the story I will give another BUT I want you all to suggest it also ("Hey Dave really played the heck out of Two-Boars just now I think he deserves an Inspiration point")

Also I am going to allow you to also spend your Inspiration to re-roll, instead of using them only for Advantage (you can still roll with advantage if you want to).

[sblock=Background & Description]Brak is a 50-year-old human, although his years of hard living make him look at least a decade older. Well, mostly, aside from the fact that he's still in pretty good physical shape. While he doesn't have much muscular definition, it's hard to miss the obvious strength in his massive frame. Scars crisscross his body, one bisecting his broad flat nose that has been broken at least a dozen times. His short hair has turned a steel grey, both that which is on his head and the immense amount that covers most of his body like a carpet. Carrying little other than a backpack, a shield, and a well-used greataxe, he appears poor in worldly possessions but rich in experience.

Brak was born into poverty in the North Kingdom. As with most things, the debauchery and decadence failed to trickle down to the lower classes. He was sold into slavery by his father to cover a debt. Shortly after being sold as a laborer, Brak was sent to the gladiatorial pits due to his failure to see eye-to-eye with his previous master. Performing surprisingly well, Brak managed to eke out a miserable existence in the pits. Unlike many successful gladiators, Brak was workmanlike in his approach to the craft, never giving the people a good show but simply eliminating his competition in the most swift and humane manner available to him. Oddly, this anti-showmanship earned him a loyal following among some of the crowd and he was added to a traveling retinue of gladiators to do battle in cities across the kingdom. During the first outing, the caravan was attacked by humanoids and the gladiators were freed to defend the caravan. Seeing the size of the horde of humanoids, Brak convinced several of his fellow gladiators to flee with him. The small group left just in time before the remainder of the caravan was swallowed by the horde.

After a long and arduous trip, Brak arrived alone at the Free City of Greyhawk, the rest of his companions either having died or opted to end their flight early. With little skills to speak of, the former gladiator sought out underground fight clubs in which to earn money, only this time, he fought at his leisure.[/sblock]

[sblock=Background Summary]
Levanna grew up in two villages, Elmvale and Green Fields. She spent much of her childhood in Elmvale, and an early encounter with pixies in the forest introduced her to the world of magic.

An orc attack forced her family from their home when she was twelve years old. She lost nearly everything in the attack, including her first love. The people of Green Fields, another village miles away, took Levanna and her family in. They fed and sheltered them, eventually integrating them into the rest of the community.

The attack put an end to her carefree days as a child. Levanna knew that she had to get a job and become an adult. She became an apprentice to a scribe, learning how to read and write in several languages and was exposed to many obscure books.

At the age of fifteen, Levanna left her job as a scribe, resolving to follow her dream to become a wizard. She wandered for a year before finding one willing to teach her the arcane arts.

Now she sets off to forge her own destiny, to learn more of the world and its mystical secrets. Though she dreams of exotic worlds and realities beyond this one, she remains forever grateful to the people of Green Fields, and will do nearly anything to protect them.

FALSE IDENTITY:

Name: Evendur Buckman

Buckman.png



Evendur is a human thief from the City of Greyhawk, he sells his services out as a swordsman, scout and lockpick. He is quick with his hands and tends to steal anything that is not nailed down. He has red hair and green eyes with tanned skin. The Mask of Many Faces is used by him to maintain the appearance which is very different to that of Grigor. He appears to be in his late teens and effectively acts like a level 1 rogue to all intents and purposes. Evendur uses a Silvered Rapier that he pilfered from the corpse of some warrior who dies fighting against undead, he also carries a shortbow. He is very proud of his armour which he managed to save from someone who had “criminally just left it lying around where it could be stolen by anyone.”



  • Personailty: Flattery is my preferred trick for getting what I want.
  • Ideal: I am determined to make something of myself.
  • Bond: I fleeced the wrong person and must work for this individual till my debt is paid
  • Flaw: I'm convinced that no one could ever foll me the way I fool others.


Story:

Grigor Marsk was convinced of his own infallibility and ability to take what he could from the world. He could read people like a book and maintained he knew what they were thinking long before they did. He used his skills to impersonate the wealthy when they went away on trips and took over their residences, living the life. He would write official looking scripts and draw money from the banking firms in the name of his benefactors. Many a rich merchant would have returned from a trip to find his finances in shambles.

His days of fun came to a crashing halt when he tried to swindle the Gnome merchant Warryn Folkor. Everything seemed to be going Grigor's way until he had the watch beating down his door in the middle of the night with the smug gnome pointing an accusatory finger at him. A hefty term in prison was awaiting the young rogue and he couldn't believe that HE had been played. The gnome came to him and offered him two choices. See out his ten years in jail or work for him for the same period. Grigor nearly spat the offer back at the laughing Warryn but pragmatism kicked in.

Warryn introduced him to Orriz' ju the Deceiver, his own patron and soon Grigor's abilities blossomed and he spent six years working for his master as a spy. Who Warryn worked for, he was never sure but this latest mission could prove to be more difficult that the others. For the first time in a long time, he would be forced to work with others.

So he meticulously crafted the persona of Evendur Buckman, ensuring the paperwork was faultless and his characterisation would never rest suspicion at his door.

[sblock=Background]Alegast is the youngest child of the Amastacia house, a wealthy family from the Kingdom of Celene, with a long history of famous wizards among their ranks. As such, it was expected for him to follow in his ancestors footsteps and became a wizard when he was adult. Alegast wasn't happy with this, however, as even if he valued the power of the arcane he had more affinity towards the military, and his dream was to become a soldier in the army. When he was old enough —and after two failed attempts to flee home and volunteer in the army— his parents send him to one of the most prestigious magical academies in the kingdom to began his training as an spellcaster.

At first, Alegast was an unruly student, mostly because he was frustrated for doing something he doesn't want to. While most of his tutors eventually lost faith on him, Lady Andraste, one of the oldest wizards in the academy, saw his potential when Alegast began to skip his classes to train with the academy guards. Lady Andraste decided to take Alegast under her wing and trained him in the secret art of the blade song, an ancient arcane practice only known by a few elven wizards in service of the Queen. Alegast took his training seriously, making his goal to become a master of the way of the sword and the spell.

After completing his training Alegast didn't pursued a career as a profesional wizard however, becoming a mercenary instead. This was suicide from a familiar perspective, and he and his parents haven't spoken since then. One day, he was hired to escort a merchant caravan on its travel to the Free City of Greyhawk, in the days when the tyranny of the Slave Lords was at its height...

[sblock=Personality]While shrewd enough to learn as he goes, much of what Alegast knows of humans and other denizens of the world comes secondhand or from books. This makes him distrustful of strangers until he can get to know them. However the more time he spends with someone the less guarded he becomes. No level of friendship will get him to open up about his family or the hardships he had faced, thought. He prides himself in keeping a calm tone even when he's upset. A perpetual confident smirk sits etched onto his face save for occasions where he becomes flustered or frustrated.

He likes to make flashy entrances and is a known showoff. Can improvise on the fly when forced to ad-lib. He kept his armor and boots impeccably clean despite being quite road worn and showing signs of falling apart. While traveling, or when otherwise appropriate, he wears a dark colored, hooded cloak. When nervous he bites hard on his lower lip. While thinking or upset he has a habit of rapidly tapping his right foot and prefers to trance on high ground.[/sblock]

First Post
Before I post in the IC thread, just wanted to clarify how much we know about each other.

I am happy for the other characters to know my characters past and abilities but want to confirm everyone else is happy for the same before I make assumptions.

Tirion will be open about himself, so feel free to know whatever you like about him. Pretty sure we only know the warlock's false identity.

Alegast likes to show off, I guess by this point everyone knows he can use magic and stuff.

Personal note: the most difficult thing about my character was to get a picture close enough to my mental image of him...

Levanna is pretty talkative and her past would have come out assuming we've spent the last 5 levels together. Sure.

I'll post tonight but I might have to leave soon. So it may come a few hours later tonight.
