Recruiting for Adventure in the Vastermarch

Manzanita

Villager
I am recruiting for a series of adventures I will soon be starting. The plot suggests that I not recruit through the RDI. I am looking for the following in PCs:
• Good alignment
• 4th or 5th level or higher, preferably
• A Balanced party of 3 to 6 PCs (preferably 4)
• Players not familiar with the Fiery Dragon module Himrak War Party
• Character has some reason for traveling in the Vastermarch or Northern Mountains area. (I've got some general hooks I can use, too)

I may not be able to get all this. In which case, I’ll settle for the best I can get. Thus feel free to post a reply, even if you don’t meet those exact criteria. I'll start the adventure when I get a party.

I expect this adventure to be combat heavy, including some mass military warfare. There will also be a fair bit of problem solving, moral decision making, sneaking about (perhaps) & excellent RP (hopefully!).

Ooooh. I like combat heavy. Unfortunately, my only available PC is Lawful Evil (a team player, though) and only level 3.

It would be great to put Hulgyr in this one, but he's been tied up in some forsaken forest with the local military.
Talbin would be great for that sneaking stuff. He's also a rather tactical fighter for a rogue, so mass combat would be so bad 9except for his not too abundant hp maybe).
I don't have a great hook ready (except for promises of more shines! and helping out a current party member) to send Talbin Vastermarch or Northern Mountains area.
He's only level 3, but an excellent sneak nonetheless.

Juliana is Level 5, but fairly neutral and a bit of a merc for money, but otherwise she'd be perfect. She may stop at Katrina's to do some forging with Talbin, so perhaps you could drag those 2 from there.

Jules can drag Boog along too, or vice versa.

She's been updated and posted, so she's ready to go.

I'm going to run this adventure when I get the right party. I should note, for now, that I've decided its best for me not to start this adventure until November 6th at the earliest. We'll be leaving on a family vacation to hawaii Wednesday for about 10 days. I'll be extra busy before we leave & won't post much, if at all, on the trip.

Anyone who has expressed interest should feel free to take another adventure if one rears its head before this one can get started. Just let me know.

Well, Lasair is good alignment, and depending on how long we take in Niobe's Dilemma, she might come out and be fourth level (cross fingers). I don't know if she's the perfect choice for heavy combat, but combat telepathy with Mass Suggestions isn't too shabby, and she has a few defensive and attack powers too.

Well, you know Father Eusebius' capabilities. He's at the RDI at the moment, but there's nothing to stop him travelling on a whim, if you have one of those general hooks to hand.

Hmm, I wonder where Rurik Axebender hails from? It might be time to pay him a visit.

If recruitment is still going on, Someone just suggested he would be wrapping up (if I'm interpreting "epiloque" correctly) Thirst for Power shortly... Banion is therefore becomig available. He's feeling highly disgruntled, both of his adventures so far having worked out fairly badly. Heading somewhere other than the RDI sounds good right about now....

Also, reading over who's interested, this looks somewhat likely to be the crew from Blood of the Werewolf... it'd be fun for Manzanita and I to swap DMing duties. If Banion comes, his buddy Beamer may be interested as well. Let me know if you're interested, and I'll mention it to Slagmortar.

Banion is a stealthy (but fairly ineffectual in combat) soulknife. Beamer is a sorceror.

Beamer would be interested. In his previous adventures with Banion he has attracted the wrath of a multi-national organization possibly based in Lathirn and a soon to be military dictator of a city state near Orussus. He would have every reason to decide that traveling up north to let things settle down is a good idea. He is 4th level as I believe Banion is as well. He is neutral, though I tend to think of him as standing on a razor's edge between good and tumbling into evil, and with Banion he's pretty much been acting good.

Yeah, I'm not allowed to retire Banion or Beamer might fall to the dark side! ;)

(Banion is, indeed, 4th level.)
 

SlagMortar

Villager
It's alright with me if Banion retires and Beamer falls to the dark side; you don't have to keep him around just for Beamer. It might be one of the first times where a character being retired has in game consequences. :)

Actually, that's happened to me before. I had a chaotic good gish type 1st edition character, who's chaotic neutral drow friend rapidly became chaotic evil when the two players got involved in seperate campaigns.

I shall bravely stand against the dark with my itty bitty (but pointy) figment of my imagination! Evildoers beware!

Though if Banion dies, Beamer's on his own. ;)

Well, it sounds like a good group we have here. I reckon we should get stated. I'm going to take Eusibeus, Juliana, Boog, Beamer & Banion. As fond as I am of Talbin, I don't think a 3rd level PC will quite cut it. I'm happy with 5 anyway.

Is Boog currently in Ravensblight? Or did he return to Orussus? I know Eusebius & Juliana are in the RDI. The halflings are where, at this point?

If you five could check in & confirm your continued interest, I'll get some hooks going.

The Banion and Beamer are currently in trying to sneak out of Gotian. This will be the first adventure where they are traveling with a melee warrior. Yay!

Edit: And someone with at least one level of cleric. I think I'm going to faint. :)

Well, we do seem to travel with rangers, and I think Draig considers himself a melee type. It's just that the rangers have also been the *only* healer in the group, and Draig was also the lowest level character in Thirst for Power.

Banion and Beamer can pretty much show up wherever you would like, looking over their shoulders nervously and hoping they've outdistanced anyone who might be looking for them. Banion's got half a mind to try and mend fences with his family, but could be distracted from this pretty easilly... and I've never established exactly where the Lorish clan lives.

Good point, I don't mean to disparage Draig. I more meant someone with the AC, hit points, and desire to be close enough to the enemy for Beamer to keep them between himself and the bad guys.
