The Search for Miyeritar’s Lost Light:Story to Date:
The town of Secomber is a small frontier town nestled between the High Forest, and the High Moor. As such, it is extremely welcoming to adventurers, as they help to defend the town from the dangerous environments they find themselves surrounded by. For the most part, the town is peaceful, boasting a large population of farmers and fisherman, and a steady supply of adventurers passing through its gates.
A notice was recently posted in the taverns of Secomber and the neighboring towns, a notice calling for a small band of adventurers to travel into the High Moor on behalf of a wealthy patron. The notice was sparse on details, but was clear on the point that what was desired was a very specific artifact this patron believes to be lost within the Moor, and that the party is free to do as they will with any other riches they may discover with the information this patron is willing to provide them with. The Notice calls for the adventurers interested to make their way to Secomber, to the Inn known as ‘The Nimble Nymph’, a place known for willing bedfellows, and private rooms that boast the best anti scrying, and physical eavesdropping prevention, to be had within the city. Those interested should tell the bartender they are interested in ‘Speaking with the snowlock’. Now, a band of adventurers begin to arrive, seeking more information on this venture, and the riches it promises. Where:
Western Heartlands, starting in the town of Secomber with adventures likely leading the party into the High MoorWhen:
1372 Year of Wild MagicPlayable Races:
Anything sensible. No half demon ogres or that garbage. Books Allowed:
Any core books, I don’t go with offbrand as they have a tendency to be unbalanced. Books Forbidden:
Unearthed Arcana. Never read the book but heard from multiple sources it allows players to become uber unbalanced.Ability Points:
I am not a point buy system fan, never used it until now. I tend to prefer to run a campaign with characters that are heroic, not near average. Normally I use a 4d6 reroll lowest and keep highest three dice system, but that would be alot of dice rolls to keep up with on here. So instead, I am going to go with handing out a preset bundle of scores, putting everyone on even footing. If this method is unpopular to everyone signing up, I will look at doing the point buy. But my theory here is the points I am handing out come to a 14 average, which is the required minimum average I have when I run a pen and paper game, so I feel them to be properly balanced to not make ridiculous characters, while still strong enough to make potent ones.
That said, here are the scores everyone gets, to then place wherever they want in their character.
18, 16, 14, 14, 12, 10Starting Level:
Whatever you find reasonable. Bear in mind you have some adventuring history as you have reached level six, so yer not a fresh faced youngster anymore. Hit Points:
Since we have a handy dandy dice bot, why not use it? When characters are made, first level is max HP. After that send me your rolls as you make them, my ID is 49898. I allow a single reroll of HP in the first 10 levels, so if you choose to use your reroll, send it to me with that in the comments. Starting Gold:
13,000 gold. Alignments:
I am intending to run a good themed campaign, so non evil please. Neutral characters are fine, as long as you don’t use the word ‘neutral’ to mean ‘evil but without the nasty aftertaste’Regional/Background Feats:
I allow ONE regional or background feat, such as is found in the Forgotten Realms handbook, in addition to what you normally receive. Sexual Preferences:
Since this is an adult styled site, I imagine people will want to get in some nookie with each other or as a means of obtaining info, or whatever your devious minds may dream up. So please include a statement of what your characters preferences are and how experienced they may be. Since virgins may hold a special interest for some cults that may or may not be watching you. Deities:
Forgotten Realms deities. Nuff said, they be out there. Spellcasting:
When you are writing, feel free to include flavor with your descriptions of your spells. Is your burning flames just a sheet of fire shooting from your fingers, or is it a wave of green flames that roll out from your fingertips? Is your color spray just a rainbow beaming from your hands, or is it like a rave light show flashing lights in rapid fire into people’s faces sending them into a fit? When you heal does the wound glow, does the flesh just knit together? Feel free to describe these things. Morality:
Please give me a description of your characters beliefs, strengths, weaknesses. Don’t just say, chaotic good, because there are many flavors of that. Are you willing to allow a child to die in order to save an entire village? Will you commit murder in the name of a righteous cause? If you’re lawful Good, what is the code you adhere to, what are the beliefs that shape your existence? What are your weaknesses, what part of your vows do you have a hard time adhering to? Background:
As a level 6 character you've done some living. Fill in some of the details to give us an idea of who your character is and where they've come fromCharacter Sheet:
If you want to type out a whole sheet, that is fine, but I would suggest using Mythweavers
to make up your actual sheet, and then just including the extra sections in the post where you link your sheet.
If I have missed anything, or there are any questions or matters that need to be clarified, please feel free to let me know. Once I have enough people actually signed up with characters rolling in, I will make an OOC and a Character Sheet thread. I am looking for at least 4, but no more than 8 players. Others can go on a waiting list if other players disappear, but I don't want to put in too many players, because then that whole group is at times stuck waiting on the slowest poster. Though if things do start to lag, I will use my DM perogitive to spur things along past someone who hasn't informed me of something going on to cause their delay in posting.
