Author Topic: The Order of the Silver Rose D&D 3.5 or freeform interest check.  (Read 4547 times)

                   Just to throw an idea in the ring and see if anyone is interested.


General Background.
                     The Order of the Silver Rose is a magical order that has two main beliefs firstly that Magic is neither good nor Evil, it just is and that all magic research should be pursued.  The second thing is that Magic should not be at the beck and call of the authorities and thus the order has always refused to get involved with the authorities.
   
         The order has two main groups, the Magus, the magic users and the Guardians, trained fighter/Rogues who guard the Orders premises and accompany the Magus on their trips.

Game play.

               The Order constantly sends out teams to obtain magical items for study back at the various citadels. The basic team is one Magus and one Guardian who are assigned to each other and remain as a team on each mission.

      I am looking for three such teams, which at the beginning will be in three separate threads. This is for the following reason, one it will allow the teams to become one before they mix with other teams. And secondly it will hopefully overcome the problem most new games have of players dropping and others waiting for posts that never come.

System.
            Either D&D 3.5 or free form dependent upon which those that wish to play opt to use.

Teams.

              One Magus and one guardian, the pairings as regard to gender are up to the players.

I would like to express my interest in playing in this. I could play either a Magus or a Guardian, either one would be female and my starting partner could be a male or a female.

EDIT- And I while I am very familiar with D&D 3.5 and would love to play using that, I would be just as happy with doing it freeform if more people want to do that.

I would love to get into this as a female guardian. As for my preference for rules I'd  like to go with 3.5.

I'll throw my name out for consideration as well. And since there's a free Guardian already, I'd have no problems playing a Magus. I'll keep the combo going and play 3.5 as well.

So are you going male or female for your Magus? Not that it matters to me just wonderoing is all.

May I sign in? 

I'm normally a magiclay active sort, perhaps I'll sign up for a guardian roll. 

(Darn, I was too slow to be partnered with Usha.  ;)  )

I'm planning on a male. And just a quick check, are any and all races open for the game? Or are there restrictions?

P.S: Should Muse want, I'd have no qualms about switching roles with him. I'm more accustomed to playing a fighter anyways.

No pairs are set yet and it would be easier if people matched themselves, so as they say talk amongst yourselves and decide on pairings.

It seems that 3.5 is the more popular option so we will go for that.

I'd be honored to be paired with you Muse, if you're up for it =D We could even swap roles if you'd prefer to be magicky! I'm happy either way!

Races are open however some races may come with disadvantages in game play, Drow etc.
As we seem to be going for 3.5 then all characters are second level with max HP for each level.
Characters are equipped by the order with reasonable equipment for the level, chain mail or scale for the Guardians etc and 50 gp.
Each Magus has a masterwork dagger given to them upon finishing their training.
Each Guardian has a masterwork weapon of their choice.
They are also given a potion of cure light wounds and neutralize poison.

I'd love to throw my hat in the ring for this... We've got two Magus and three Guardians, right? I'd love to throw my name in as a male Magus, but I'm frankly okay with any role; male or female, Magus or Guardian. Also I'd love to play 3.5, I'm a huge fan.

If you're a person without a pairing, send me a PM and we can figure out what I should be :)

I've never used a system on this site, but the dice roller seems simple enough. Is there anything we should keep in mind when making our characters? Like, ability generation method, I guess. Is it rolled or point-buy?

32 point buy is fine.
Both guardians and Magus would be equipped with a melee and a ranged weapon appropriate to their class.
Although in the case of the Magus their masterwork weapon is always a dagger.

Used an outside character sheet, haven't gotten to skills yet, but everything else is pretty much in place.

Toss my hat into the ring here as a Guardian. I'll assume this is 3.5 and not some PF hybrid.

   Sixteen years ago, Aurin Alazar and the lady mage Sioban Marten aided a city besieged by hobgoblins and fiends.  In the seventeenth day of the siege Aurin, injured and fatigued, confronted the balor leading the beasts on the north bridge.  with a blade laboriously bespelled by Sioban, he plunged into the demon's fiery aura and drove the blade into its heart. 
   He died in the resulting conflaguration, saving Sioban and leaving his son Marco with a very big set of shoes to fill. 
   Raised by his instructors in the Order of the Silver Rose, he accepted their teachings and took emotional sollace in his father's heroisim and the thought that he, too, migth be a mighty gaurdian one day. 
   As he grew towards his full height, Master Armond ended his instruction in athleticism, combat, deportment and trapfinding and put him to work at a smithy.  He was heartbroken at the thought he must have failed in his studies.  After a few days of despair, he dedicated himself to the discipline of the forge in hopes of restoring himself in his teacher's eyes.  In pumping bellows and hammering iron, he found discipline and serenity he'd lacked.  He also gained great strength. 
   A year later, he was given his father's first sword and taught to use it, then was assinged to the defense of a beautiful sorceress...

Nice to see that people are getting themselves sorted with characters and pairings.

To start with I thought that each team can choose an assignment out of three. (First come, first served basis of course. )

This is the start thread,
http://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?topic=142246.0

Under each assignment there is the link to the opening post so that you may get a flavor of the assignment  prior to making a choice.

And of course the OOC thread.

Grover, were you expecting Wizards for the Magi?  Or will a sorceress work?
