Summer time means fun time! While I am still working and being awesome, I don't have the extra stress of school anymore for the next 3 months. Which means more naughty D&D here! Here is the basic premise of the story:
You have been banished to the underworld, never to see the light of day again.
The surface is ruled by the cruel Emperor Hawthorne, master of the Empire. All of the known lands are subject to his brutal command. Everyone who speaks out, who misbehaves, who doesn’t fit in is cast into the dark, volcanic pits of Avernum, far below the surface. There, you are expected to die, a victim of starvation, horrible monsters, or simple despair.
But not all of the Avernites have surrendered. With magic and steel, they are forging a new nation deep underground. You can join them and fight for safety. Or freedom. Or even, if you dare, revenge on the surface-worlders who tried to destroy you.
This isn't going to be your typical underdark, far from it. Not even going to have drows.
As for game stats:
- Level 3.
- 5d6 epic roll.
- No money and no starting gear. Since you are prisoners getting thrown into a portal of doom, so why would they allow you to keep your shinies? Which means no holy symbols or spellbooks. Magic down in the pit is rare and the few wizards who get thrown in and survive are going to be very well powerful because of it.
- No psionics.
- The weirder/sexier the race the better. All the more reason to throw you into Avernum and out of the human controlled surface world.
