Recruiting for Eberron - Man on the Run (1 spot), alts always welcome


Hello all,

After a 6 month lay off, dealing with the aftermath of a natural disaster, and a relocation, I am ready and eager to get back into PbP! Here's the details:

Special Delivery

The gnome patron told you that this package is to be delivered to his cousin in Trolanport. He sure did pay you pretty well for delivering this package, but what is in this box that is so special? Why are there magical protections on it? And just who wants this so bad that he entrusts your ragtag bunch to deliver it? Well, he did pay you pretty well after all.

An Eberron one-shot, and possible mini-campaign.

Man on the Run

So Stormreach is the gateway to Xen'drik as they say, and you're here to explore. You have done your best to keep a low profile and not stir up trouble. So why is it that those thugs are eyeing you?

An Eberron one-shot, and possible mini-campaign.

- D&D 3.5 (Core Books, ECS, Player's Guide to Eberron, UA, Races and Complete Series, other Eberron content on a case by case basis)
- Point Buy system (32): No more than ONE (1) 18, before adjustments
- Starting Level 3: no races with LA greater than +1
- 3000 gp starting wealth (no item greater than ~1200 gp)
- Nonevil alignments
- Weapon groups
- Invisible Castle dice rolling
- DM updates Mo-Wd-Fr or Tu-Th-Sa by 11:59 pm EDT
- Final Characters subject to approval
- Rogue Gallery Thread is here for Special Delivery and here for Man on the Run
- As a houserule, Spot and Listen are rolled into one skill (Notice), Hide and Move Silently as well (Stealth).
- There is no Open Lock skill, that will fall under Disable Device, because well, a lock is a device.
- I am using a revamped version of Diplomacy. See it here.
- HP above first is 1/2 hit die +1 (so 3 for d4, 4 for d6, 5 for d8, 6 for d10, 7 for d12).
- More details TBD.

First Post
It been some times I am watching for an Ebberon campaign. Here a character I really want to play. It has been written fo another campaign, so there will be tweaking to do to his stats and also have to modify a bit his background (all that happen in the letter should aminly stay the same, it is after that that might change). Tell me what you think.

By the way, I'm leaving for teh week-end, so if you like the concept, I'll do the modification when I'm back monday.

Background: Two years ago, Norros arrived on the Lady Scarlet. Just another boat among all that came to Seawell, just another man that put his feet on the island. The only strange thing about him is, instead of leaving with his boat, he stayed on the island. No one in town knows why he has chosen to do so. He has rent a room and have kept it during those two years. During the day, he finds some small jobs in the harbor, during night, he goes into the taverns to drink with the others. Everyone who have come in contact with him have come to like him, a simple man with the heart to the good place. He might be a bit indisciplined, but people tells Norros is like the wind who push his boat in the harbor. But if one person would dare to enter Norros bedroom and would search under his bed, he would find a small chest where he hides a single letter who has never been read. A name is written on it: Eloïse. And if this curious person would dare to open it, he would discover the dark secret Norros have been hiding, even to his closest friend.

[SBLOCK=Letter]Dear Eloïse,

I understand your reaction of yesterday. I couldn't expect less of you. If I write this letter to you, it is not to ask forgivenessmyself of what I have done. I betrayed your trust. There is no forgiveness possible. If I write you down this letter, it is because I think I owe you the truth.

I'm borned in the region of Darguun. At that moment, my father was already death. He was not a good man, and he happen to have large debt. His creditor decided to pay themselves by making my mother there slave. So when I was born, I was already the pawn of someone else.

My mother tried to hide her heritage the best she could, but the baby I was could not do the same, I was too young to understand the situation I was in. So the creditor discovered I wasn't a human, but a Changelling. When they saw through the decption, they forced my mother, by threatning my life, to reveal all about her nature. She was the child of an old lineage of sorcerer. Herself wasn't one, she wanted to broke this tradition who have brought doom on us. The creditor then decided to take my education into there hands.

One of them, Farnok, an half-orc, was a wizards. He decided to teach me the mastery of arcane art. Instead of doing it itself, he summoned a minor demon, a quasit, to do it. So since I was four yeas old, I had for mentor a Quasit. One aspect of these demon, it is they are not faithfull follower, even less when they are bond to do something by some magic. This Quasit decide to teach me some dark arcana that I could one day turn upon my master. It is how I became a Warlock instead of a wizard like Farnok. He also helped me to master the magic within all magical items. That way, I would be less scare to use it and I could bring more trouble to the demon's master who was also mine. The Quasit wanted his vengeance for his captivity.

Farnok found the trick the Quasit was playing on him, but it took him years. My training was too advanced to start it from scratch. Illiewyn was the other creditor, that name might sound familiar to your ears. He was a dark elf, a member of the house of Valenar who has turned upon his house. For that, he has been cast away. He decided to take his vengeance. He was the one who had my mother. He trade it for me when he saw the potential I was for his vengeance. He completed my training, teaching me the ways to infiltrate an organization, using my dark arts to my advantage, or should I say, to his advanatge.

Once my training was finish, he sent me to you. He heard you were searching for a new maid. So I had to use my powers and my skills to become that one. It wasn't hard to convince your father. Illewyn knew exactly what your father wanted, so he told me what to say, how to act. I started to work for you. I was expecting to continue my life of slaves under your rules. I didn't expect to be serving someone so kind and so generous. It took not long before I fall in love with you. I would have liked, from the start, to reveal the sword that was hanging over your head, but sadly I had my own. Illewyn threaten me that if I failed him, my mother would died. At that moment, I had only two things that was counting to me, my mother and you. I couldn't give up my mother, so I played Illewyn's game.

But things changed this week. Two events have changed all the rules of the games. First, following an experimentation of Farnok, my mother lost her life. Illewyn lost his only hold on me. Second, he was about to make his first big moves in his plan of vengeance, one that would wounded deeply your father, something that would torture him for all his life, and it was your death. I was suppose to be the one who would have put the poison in the drink you take each night before going to bed. The poison would have killed you during the night, and your father wouldn't had been able to saved you. As the sun would have gone up, your soul would have long been away from your body.

I choosed to turn upon my master. I came to you last night, and reveal my true self. But when you saw I wasn't the maid I pretend to be, when you shout and attract all the guards, I couldn't do much than leaves. I just hope you heard my warning, that your life was in danger, that Illewyn wanted his vengeance. I don't know if I'll have the courage to gives you that letter, who reveal to you my past and my heart. I would also need to be able to reach you and gives the letter to you. But if it ever reach your hand, I would like you to keep it for yourself alone, and reveal to your father only Illewyn's goals.

For me, Illewyn will want my hide, and Farnok his not his only ally. He has many goons that would be please to kill me to have the favor of Illewyn. So I'll use the same skill he teach me and I'll go far from this land and I'll start my life anew.

Preliminary scan looks ok to me. please post your updated character to the RG thread (link in first post.


- As a houserule, Spot and Listen are rolled into one skill (Notice), Hide and Move Silently as well (Stealth).
- There is no Open Lock skill, that will fall under Disable Device.
- I am using a revamped version of diplomacy. See it here



Under normal circumstances, no way. However, because I pooped out mid game on you guys, I'll give you special consideration. I'll get you an answer by Monday for sure. In the meantime, make sure you're working on another character in case I don't approve it.

History: Khashana was part of a Kalashtar diplomatic team that worked out of Sharn, spreading the word about the plight of the Kalashtar in Adar and forging alliances against the tyrranical Inspired. When her friends and allies were targeted in retaliation, the soft-hearted Khashana moved away from her political affilations and decided to work apart from others of her race.

Personality and Roleplaying notes: Khashana lives to help others--usually at her own expense in some way. Despite having quite a bit of power and being quite skilled in several ways, Khashana has surprisingly low self-confidence and believes the only way to get the respect of others is to sacrifice part of herself to them.

Khashana is a pacifistic healer who has vowed to do as little harm as possible to others. She has also vowed to lend her aid to the wounded whenever needed, regardless of who they are.

I'm not a fan of psionics. That being said, I am willing to use them in my game. I only have access to the SRD for psionics though. Just a fair warning.

Animus said:

In that case, I'd probably make her a Psion instead of an Ardent (since the Ardent class isn't in the SRD). Her primary focus would be the Empathic Transfer power (which would work well with her martyr-type personality).

Although I do like the psionics system, I can certainly see the problem that many DMs have with it. Rest assured that I don't intend to power-game or tweak the rules in any weird sort of way. I'm just interested in trying out new ways to explore the 'healer' concept outside of the cleric class.


FYI: Here's the party so far:

-Warforged ftr or ftr/rng
-Changeling warlock
-Kalashtar psion "healer"
-githzerai monk (maybe) or ?

Two more + alts to go, and this roster will be full.


Quick question, before I decide whether to cast in my hat: is the PHB II kosher? I'm eyeing the beguiler and duskblade pretty closely. If not, I may try my hand at a changeling rogue with the racial substitution levels from Races of Eberron.


First Post
Okay, I've added my character submission (see above) and I think it's more or less finished. Let me know if there's anything I've missed. Oh, I've made sure to include links to any relevant psionic powers or rules (from the SRD) for ease of use.


First Post
My friend Byteme8199 and I are interested in playing a pair of Shifter brothers that go adventuring together. We'll probably be a Scout and another class of some decription. We are working on characters now.



I forgot. HP above first is 1/2 hit die +1 (so 3 for d4, 4 for d6, etc.).

So here's my roster:
Strahd VZ
Nero Kingsley
Azaar (confirm please :))
Byte8199 (maybe in, maybe alt)


Preliminary scan looks good. Will give more thorough look this weekend.


If Azaar doesn't want in, then both you guys are in. Otherwise, I can only take one for now. I'm taking alts though.


The man with the probe
I have 3 character ideas -

#1) Kalashtar Rogue/Psion, heading into the Shadowmind (Complete Adventurer). Actualy a character on the run, posing as a human.
#2) Grey Elf Psychic Rogue. Was into salvaging, so more an adventuring rogue, the Psionics being an interesting addition.
#3) Half-Elf Dragonmarked Rogue/Swashbuckler heading into Dualist. A sailor, showoff, and all around entertaining guy.

If none of these ideas fit well, I'm ok with holding off too. Let me know if any of these are ok, and I'll draw them up more (Tweek them for this game)


Hey all,

I've been thinking, I was trying to get off another game using True20, but I'm going to hold off on that. That means that I can run a SECOND game! I'll obviously be running a different adventure. Using same creation rules, but will update T-TH-SA (as opposed to M-W-F).

The following will be in current game:
Strahd VZ
Nero Kingsley

The following will be in the new game:


Actually, I like concept #1 so much, that I'm going to send you a PM about it.
*edit* Oops, can't do that here. Will email you then.


The man with the probe
Sent you an e-mail, I can't check the one you sent any time soon, send it where I told you instead :)



I have consolidated rules and rosters and added the new blurb here. Please please post your characters in the respective Rogue's Gallery threads. and make sure you post to the correct one as well. Thanks.
