5E One Shot #2 - Irongrad (Closed/OOC)

EarlyBird

First Post
So this quick One Shot is from way back. I am adapting an adventure printed back in 1989. It is very short and used by me a couple times to get 1st lvl characters gathered into a party.


It will be for up to 5 characters of first lvl with one requirment.
- The character's class must have the cantrip feature or...
- If a non-spellcaster they must have the Magic Initiate feat.
- Have a racial spell/cantrip i.e. dancing lights, minor illusion, thaumtagy, etc.

2 slots being held for now, so up to 3 more players may join


Here is a couple blurbs from the scenario:

"Let's just say it was a bad day to go to the marketplace."


"There's no tomb like home."


Sorry not much to go on I know, just what they printed. Ok discussion is open to see what everyone wants to play.


Rules: (cuze we all need them, all subject to modification)
1. Newbies to the sight or those players that haven't played in one of the past two games will get priority placement. Want everyone to have fun.
2. PvP is strictly frowned on. So that would be a no to that.
3. No trading of equipment will be allowed - but borrowing something for the adventure is acceptable.
4. Working on downtime/crafting/magic item pool rules if anyone wishes to help with those see the disscusion thread
5. Have fun! That is a rule so please follow it.

I'm interested. Can you give specifics on the need for the cantrip or Magic Initiate feat; does racial spellcasting count? (E.g. my drow rogue has the dancing lights cantrip because of his race, but that's it.)

I've made 3 out of my 4 characters, so I'm not sure what to play yet. Is it possible (or plausible) to play the same character as the one currently in another one-shot adventure?

I'm in.

I'll decide on a character by the time it fills up. When were you hoping to start this one?

My Druid is currently ready but can probably have my warlock ready before this starts so I don't step on Steve Goraks toes if he goes Druid.

Going to give this a week to see if anyone not currently in the other One Shot game wants in. So this will probably start MON.

Still need to go over characters once we have solid decisions.

Hmmm...looking over the scenario and the adjustments, I made any innate spellcasting would also be affected, so sure I'll adjust post #1

I think I have time for this, especially if it's short. Spellcasting, huh? I haven't made my A and B Characters. Plenty of options there. If there's room, put me down.

Ok, I chose to bring back a Monk character from a game that never got off the ground. Nicolo, though I'm changing him up a bit. But here's the thing:

The starting gold for monks is a freaking joke. 20gp? Really? That's less than if you take the Monk's free equipment, and don't even take the starting equipment from your background. A monk gets a shortsword, 10gp, a Explorer's Pack, 10gp, and 10 darts, 5sp. Plus background stuff, in my case, that's a Charlatan, so he'd also get a Disguise Kit, 25gp, a Signet Ring, 5gp, Fine Clothes, 15gp, and 15 gp in a pouch, 5sp. All total that's 81gp worth of equipment, which winds up beating the Barbarian and Druid's starting gold by 1gp, but only because of the pouch and darts.

Come to think of it, the Barbarian's starting equipment is a Greataxe, 50gp, 2 handaxes, 10gp, an explorers pack, 10gp, and four Javlins, 10gp. That's 80 gp, without a background. Which is the suggested starting gold for them.

Do we get background equipment AND the starting gold? Or just the starting gold? Because if it's just starting gold, they really get the shaft. There are some expensive things in those background equipment let's.

Am I able to just take the usual starting equipment instead of the starting gold?

Not much is one thing. Naked is another. If I try to buy the normal starting equipment, he won't even have clothes once all I'd said and done.

Going to say that not having any money would be a good motivation for adventuring, or you would never leave the temple. I think the total is so low as you don't need a weapon or armor. Also you can "borrow"equipment from the others in the group for that adventure, so a backpack food and water, and you are set to start. Get maybe 200 gp of stuff during the game and you are beyond set.

If that's the case, he'll have travelers clothes, a waterskin, a pouch, six daggers and some gold. I think that comes out to 14 gp and 7sp, so he has 5gp and 3sp in his pouch.

Yes, but they're not daggers. And I'm not really looking at this guy as an Asian Ninja. More like a drifter who grew up on the streets, became a con man, and learned how to defend himself with small, concealable weapons in case his con went south.

I know daggers are the same as the unarmed strike, but they can be thrown. Punches can't.

I see so not a temple monk, a street drifter/conman good with his fists, since he doesn't want to look threatening while pulling off a con.
