The Speaker in Dreams (OOC)

Nero Kingsley

First Post
The town of Brindinford occupies a low hill beside the Brinding River. Crenellated stone walls, interrupted by tall watchtowers, surround the buildings, but the life of the town spills beyond its walls today. Colorful carts and wagons, flags and ribbons, and people of all sorts line the road for 100 yards beyond the gate. Dozens of halflings in bright colored costumes are directing most of the activities. A busy, lively hum of noise rises from the fair, and the smells of roasting meat, exotic spices, and cut flowers fills the air.

The town of Brindinford is in the midst of its annual street fair. Joy and merriment abound - until calamity disrupts the celebration. Are rival gangs responsible? Is the government sliding into tyranny? Or is a nightmarish plot about to come to fruition?

With the big crash and the loss of so many games, I've mustered up enough courage to start a game here on the boards. I've witnessed firsthand how quickly games fill up around here, so I'll set the deadline for character submissions at May 18. The town of Brindinford isn't on any Greyhawk map, so don't bother looking for it, but the more your character's background ties in to the campaign setting, the better your chances are of getting in. Assume it's not too far of a journey from the City of Greyhawk. Also, if you see the party is lacking a healer, a cleric or druid would be a pretty surefire way to get yourself a secured spot (the same holds true for rogues, casters, tanks, etc.). I will only be accepting four characters - no more, no less.

Character Creation Guidelines
Level: 5th.
Ability Scores: 28 point buy (do not add extra ability score point for level 4).
Gold: 9,000 gp.
Hit Points: Max at 1st level, average at even levels, average plus one at odds.
Books: Player's Handbook and Dungeon Master's Guide (prestige classes only, if you even meet the prerequisites). Sorry, I like the classic feel to D&D - plus I don't have the money to afford all those fancy splatbooks and supplements and whatnot.

Elven Cleric of Corellon Larethian - Ivellios

This sounds like it could be a fun game. I'll toss my hat into the ring with this middle-aged Elven cleric. Enjoy!

Ivellios Galanodel
Race: Elf Class: Cleric/Bard Level: 3/2 Experience: 10,000
Alignment:Chaotic Good Deity: Corellon Larethian
Description: Above average height (5'5"), lean and scrawny (135 pounds), greyish-white long hair, silver eyes, pale white skin

Ivellios is an older elf who for many, many years has walked a quiet and solitary path. As a 'seeker', Ivellios has chosen to exile himself from his people in order to become closer to his deity, Corellon. Although his wanderings may, at times, seem aimless, he nevertheless often finds himself stumbling into odd and sometimes dangerous situations. Ivellios, truly pious, believes that Corellon himself is guiding his steps, testing his virtues at every turn. Each challenge is an inspiration to him.

Personality and Roleplaying notes:
While many solitary wanderers are moody and quiet, Ivellios is not. He is quick to smile and often very friendly, athough he always remains subdued and sedate. His mild good-natured attitude is tempered by his remarkable patience and understanding. He treasures the brief friendships he is able to make, for he knows all too well that soon enough Corellon will call on him to wander away once more.

Ooooh, I've been wanting to play this for AGES! :D

Fiona Boomknockle, a female halfling Monk. She's happy, loveable, and full of jokes and sillyness.

More will come :D

Looks good, Nonamazing. Usually, the last person in is the healer, not the first :lol: . I dig the bard/cleric mix ;) .

If you know anything about this adventure, just please don't metagame! Though you are still welcome to join :) .


First Post
I would love to play in this adventure, have a human female fighter 5. Can send more details if you feel she would be a good fit for the party.

I am new to the PbP forum and am looking forward to trying out this new way to play D&D.


First Post
I do have one question for the GM. Are you using 3.0 or 3.5 books? I no longer have my 3.0 books and only have 3.5. I know that in the 3.5 PH there are some feats that aren't in 3.0. Please let me know if this is a problem.


I'd also be interested in this. I'd like to play a rogue or rogue/druid combination. I'm not very comfortable using magic just yet (still new to pbp), so I'd probably use more rogue than druid, but it'd be nice to be able to summon a flanking partner when I need one.

Noraa the Questing Brigand

Race: Human Class: Fighter/Rogue Level: 1/4
Alignment Chaotic Good Deity: Undecided (Noraa has not decided yet)
Description: A short but stocky woman with sun-leathered skin and a hint of exoticism to her features.

Until recently, Noraa Falcon had spent her life as a third-generation bandit, waylaying travellers by the side of major trade routes alongside her fellows. But that all changed three weeks ago. A raid went wrong, and Noraa was knocked out and abandoned to the elements. When she came too, she was being cared for by an itinerant cleric who had chanced upon her, and who gave her aid without hesitation. This kindness awakened something in Noraa, something she had long tried to bury to fit in with extended family of brigands -- goodness.

Personality and Roleplaying Notes
Noraa is still uncertain about her place in the world. The only life she has ever known has been one of living off of other people, and while she wants to change, old habits die hard -- so she tries to use her talents to help others as well as herself, and only on people whom she feels deserve it. At times, she will even err on the side of caution, showing a goodness of heart that would gladden even a paladin's dour demeanour.

Alright here's a handy tank for the group:
Broderick Bvarizak

Broderick was a blacksmith’s son. Rogun raised his son in the tradition of the great dwarven blacksmiths. The problem was however that Rogun Bvarizak had moved to the great city of Greyhawk many years ago when Broderick was just a lad with a few hairs on his chin. Rogun was a skilled craftsman and a canny merchant and did very well in the city. He would send Broderick back to the Dwarven holds every year to visit his mother and pay homage to his ancestors in the Great Hall. But Broderick was learning the family trade and was serving his apprenticeship. Years passed and though Broderick was becoming a skilled craftsman, his progress was not what Rogun expected from his son. One day he discovered why. In his spare time, Broderick had been sparing with local mercenaries, learning what he could from them in exchange for repairing their weapons and armor.

Broderick was ashamed by his actions and awaited his father’s judgement. Instead of anger though Broderick was met with kindness. “This is not your fault my son, I took you from the Holds before you were of age to have your talents tried by the Elders. Seeing you now I know that within you beats not the heart of a blacksmith, but a warrior. It is time that you moved on an served another apprenticeship” Broderick made as to speak, to say he did not want to leave his father, just to serve at another forge unless it was Moradin. But his father cut him off “You must return to our home and learn to be a proper warrior, learn the weapons of your fathers. You will go and serve your apprenticeship among our people, as a warrior.”

Broderick was overjoyed, though he would miss his father, his heart knew that this pathway the one laid of for him by Moradin. He returned to his true home for his training. A short 10 years later, he was deemed to be ready. After his long and circuitous path he was a true warrior. He left the holds determined to find adventure. Having been raised so long in the cities of humans, he felt as comfortable there as underground. Along the way Broderick met up with other restless souls looking to make their way among the world.

After Broderick left, Rogun found his shop too large to manage in Greyhawk. So he packed up and moved to the nearby village of Brindinford. Rogun rose to prominence in the village for his fine craftsmanship and fair prices. There were few Dwarven made goods available outside of Greyhawk, so Rogun's shop was always busy. At no time was it busier than when Brindinford hosted their annula street fair, which drew people from all over the coutryside.

As he and his companions were passing through the area, Broderick suggested to his friends that they head to the village, both so he could see his father and enjoy the fair.

Broderick is a relatively young dwarf. His black hair is braided into a single braid in the back and his beard forms two braids as the warriors back home keep theirs. His youth and eagerness lead him to some early trouble that his captain wasn’t pleased about, but years of hammering in the forge have given him strong arms, and a broad back which served him well in the tunnels.

Racial Features:
• +2 Constitution, –2 Charisma.
• Medium: As Medium creatures, dwarves have no special bonuses or penalties due to their size.
• Dwarf base land speed is 20 feet. However, dwarves can move at this speed even when wearing medium or heavy armor or when carrying a medium or heavy load (unlike other creatures, whose speed is reduced in such situations).
• Darkvision: Dwarves can see in the dark up to 60 feet. Darkvision is black and white only, but it is otherwise like normal sight, and dwarves can function just fine with no light at all.
• Stonecunning: This ability grants a dwarf a +2 racial bonus on Search checks to notice unusual stonework, such as sliding walls, stonework traps, new construction (even when built to match the old), unsafe stone surfaces, shaky stone ceilings, and the like. Something that isn’t stone but that is disguised as stone also counts as unusual stonework. A dwarf who merely comes within 10 feet of unusual stonework can make a Search check as if he were actively searching, and a dwarf can use the Search skill to find stonework traps as a rogue can. A dwarf can also intuit depth, sensing his approximate depth underground as naturally as a human can sense which way is up. 
• Weapon Familiarity: Dwarves may treat dwarven waraxes and dwarven urgroshes as martial weapons, rather than exotic weapons.
• Stability: A dwarf gains a +4 bonus on ability checks made to resist being bull rushed or tripped when standing on the ground (but not when climbing, flying, riding, or otherwise not standing firmly on the ground).
• +2 racial bonus on saving throws against poison.
• +2 racial bonus on saving throws against spells and spell-like effects.
• +1 racial bonus on attack rolls against orcs and goblinoids.
• +4 dodge bonus to Armor Class against monsters of the giant type. Any time a creature loses its Dexterity bonus (if any) to Armor Class, such as when it’s caught flat-footed, it loses its dodge bonus, too. 
• +2 racial bonus on Appraise checks that are related to stone or metal items.
• +2 racial bonus on Craft checks that are related to stone or metal.
• Automatic Languages: Common and Dwarven. Bonus Languages: Giant, Gnome, Goblin, Orc, Terran, and Undercommon.
• Favored Class: Fighter. A multiclass dwarf ’s fighter class does not count when determining whether he takes an experience point penalty for multiclassing

Looks good Triangle, but I'm afraid the Earth Bloodline is no go. I want to keep things to the PHB and DMG for everybody. Sorry.

Talviarianna - By all means, send her in. We'll be using 3.5 rules, so it won't be a problem.

Sounds good, gothica.

Sorry Dazza, I don't have access to either of those classes. PHB and DMG only for this game.

Kafkonia - You used 2 too many points for your ability scores. Otherwise, everything looks good.

That's about as old school as it gets. A scrappy dwarf with a penchant for smithing. :cool:

Your ability scores are a little off, and it's probably because I forgot to specify that you don't get the extra ability score point you normally would every 4 levels. My mistake.

Ah, yes. Consider it fixed.

Yes, I figured that that was about as Core as you could get. If you're gonna tank, go all the way :cool:

Yes, I didn't realize we weren't adding the 1 ability score at 4th level.

I guess I'll drop my CON by 2 (and adjust HP and Fort accordingly.)

Here she is in all her glory... let me know if something is missing or doesn't add up. Thanks for considering me for your game.

Nareese (nah REESE) learned her trade serving various employers willing to pay for her sword. She never stayed more than a year at any one post, all ways becoming bored with the monotony. Whenever her duties became repetitive, it wasn’t long before she was looking to the horizon for something new and exciting. This past year she has found happiness in an adventure’s life. A new town, new tavern and new companions never fail to put a smile on her scarred face.

Nareese (nah REESE) is a large and imposing woman standing 6’ 2” and weighing 260 lbs, all muscle. She has thick, short, black hair with icy blue eyes and could never be described as a beauty. She is loud and boisterous and loves a good tavern or festhouse and all the amenities available there in. Magic is a mystery to her and she is uneasy around magic users, though she does appreciate their power. She is good-natured and loves to laugh however she is sensitive about her looks. A tavern brawl is guaranteed if anyone pokes fun of her looks.

Unnatural screams rang out through the Welkwood, attracting the attention of its various inhabitants, including that of the druid Torin, who was already old by that point.

Led by Vesta, his wolf companion, Torin quickly came upon a devastating site. A small caravan of halfings had been ambushed and slaughtered on the narrow trail, their little bodies strewn about the brush like garbage, and their wagons completely destroyed. And it was underneath the rubble of one of those wagons where Vesta began to frantically scratch and claw at the dirt and rock.

Torin attempted to move the wagon, or what was left of it, himself, but his frail human body had betrayed him yet again. As the screams below began to resign, Torin loosed a frantic growl as his body took a new shape, a shape he hadn't seen in a long, long time.

As the huge bear lifted the ruined wagon, Vesta quickly drug the halfling child to safety.

He called her Rowan, and she spent her earliest memories being taught the ways of the druid, to respect both the beauty and the power of nature. Torin would often find her hiding in a secluded spot simply observing nature, watching the animals as they roamed and fed, and gave her her nickname, The Watcher of Welkwood.

Now, years later, Torin having lived longer than any human ought, the Watcher of Welkwood has given her human father back to the earth. And she would take that name, and Torin's legacy, along with Tiki, her own wolf companion (who is directly descended from Vesta, who also passed on of old age when Rowan was a child) and explore the world for what it's worth, gaining whatever knowledge she can. She would watch...

I've kitted out Noraa -- she's about 3 lbs over her "low encumbrance" limit, so I think that she won't be bringing everything with her all the time. What she leaves behind would depend on what she's expecting to encounter.
