5th Ed D&D - The Legend of Dryad Wood
« on: April 12, 2015, 11:51:35 PM »
I'm looking for people that would be interested in playing in an online game of the newest edition of D&D.  Since D&D has charm spells and other spells that can force you to act against your will, I'm thinking that this has to be classified as non-con, although I do not believe it will be very heavy, if at all, on the non-con content.  However, I'd like to keep all bases covered so I/we do not violate any E rules.

Stats would be epic buy for first level characters.  Feel free to PM me a concept and/or state your interest here.

Here's the concept's start (in the world of Greyhawk):

You have lived your entire life in the sleepy city of Dryad Wood.  It is a small city, perhaps 300-400 people made up primarily (if not completely) of humans, half-elves and elves.  The city is located in the Gnarley Forest.  Legends state that the city was founded over a hundred years ago by a dryad who made a deal with a human and and elf to offer mutual protection.  However, no dryad had ever been seen in or around the city and many suspect that this was a fairy tale to make people feel safe at night since it is isolated from much of civilization. 

Recently, however, more and more people of varying races have been travelling through Dryad Wood.  Some seek refuge, shelter and others are passing through.  All the travelers speak of new cities and towns appearing out of nowhere and invasions from strange people taking over their homes and pillaging their towns.  Such horrors have not yet come to Dryad Wood but the stories coming from different places are hard to dismiss. 

The council of Dryad Wood seeks adventurers and city folk itching for adventure to discover the nature of these rumors and see if they pose a threat to Dryad Wood.  If they do, they will require your council on how to end the threat or take whatever action is deemed necessary.  This may be your chance to see the world at large.  The council will supply you (as a first level adventurer).  Do you dare take the risk?

Wonderful!  5e is so much easier than 3, 3.5 and Pathfinder.  Takes me way back to my 2nd ed days.  You'll catch on fairly quickly, I assure you.  :)  Do you have the PH or a PDF of it?

It is a great system.  I especially love advantage/disadvantage and how people are forced to have a background complete with traits and flaws.

Oh! May I play?  :)

Absolutely.  It would be nice to write with you again.

I would not know about a 5E curse as I have been gone for around a year from E.  Silly real life and law practice that got in the way.  :)  In any case, 27 point buy as described in the PH.  All PH races permitted (therefore, no gnoll, centur, satyr, or minotaur); however, please remember that Dryad Wood itself is human, elven and half-elven.  If you play something else, you're not likely a resident; however, you may be a frequent visitor or you may be someone seeking refuge.  Let me know what you might choose for that via PM so we could work it out. 

I've got the hankering to play a curte little halfling boy, so if that's fine I'm definitely interested.

Great!  Do it!  Create it!  :)

We already have 5 interested, which is a great start.  In my experience in E, generally, we should have double of what a good party should have to keep the game/writing going.  Therefore, I would ask you to submit via PM your character concepts with stats, traits, etc. 

If you need help, let me know.  I'm happy to assist.  Once I get 4 approved concepts, I'll get a forum set up and we'll be on our adventuring way!

Please submit.  I have never turned anyone away based on numbers.  Real life, etc. causes attrition and I'd rather have more to make everything work.  Feel free to draft something up.  :)

As for genders, halfling cleric is physically male, although they look, live and think of themselves more as female. Cute little thing, though, if a little bit incredibly innocent and naive.

By the way, Devils Advocate, how many points is epic point buy? I'm not seeing any different amounts for point buy in the PHB so it may be a DMG thing.

We're in Greyhawk setting.

No, it was a Pathfinder thing and I was confusing my point buy systems.  The point buy system is 27 points per the PH.

Rare to see anyone go the paladin route.  Though, in 5E, you don't have to be LG (or lawful stupid as many played paladins).

Gotcha, so standard point buy. Just had to ask to figure that out.

And I love paladins, I don't play the lawful dumb types either!

Since we have 2 people with bird girl avatars interested in this game I take that as an auspicious sign!

So, so far, I see a paladin, a warlock and cleric....  Warlock and cleric beginnings have been submitted to me.  Good stuff. 

I do probably need to know from all of you why you're coming to Dryad Wood or whether you're a native of the town/city....

Ruby, the locals in Dryad Wood are humans, elves and half-elves.  A half-orc really would not fit.  Ranger would be very good, though.

I don't know.  I don't think I could tire of cupcakes.  :)  LOL  But, yeah, every once in awhile you want to do something different.  I get it.  However, when I game, most people count on me to create the rogue, because I excel at it, and nobody else does it as a result, so....  Victim of our own successes?

Was looking at it between court files.  The only thing that caught my eye in skim is that you seemed to list a feat.  Not sure how you got one of those at 1st level but perhaps I missed something in your character's race or I was just skimmed too quickly.

I'm currently thinking bard, barbarian, or wizard... leaning wizard though, or bard if the group needs one. So if you have a barbarian in mind, don't hesitate on my account. Archery-focused fighter is also an option.

I don't think that I've seen anyone mention wizard as of yet.  Might be a good lean.  However, I can make a party of whatever work.  Numbers are no issue either.  In fact, I encourage them.  Worst case scenario, I have two parties at some point.  Makes for some epic times.

2 characters looking fine re: stats (both halflings).  Please remember those traits, flaws, etc. are there for a reason.  Help me with some background on your characters.  If you need information from me regarding the environment, that's not a problem.  Just PM me. 

Let's get some more characters in so I can create the group and get this show on the road.

I'm also feeling halfling - either a druid (If etherealgirl doesn't mind sharing) or ranger...

Failing that, a dwarf with a big hammer ("with a big hammer" being one of the new classes coming out soon. No really!)

My character will be Human, mostly because humans are the best. Been a busy start to the week, aiming to get the sheet done tomorrow before well, I go off to play D&D. I will definitely be going human paladin, just thinking on what deity to serve greyhawk wise, and how to properly characterize him.

Humans don't get a lot of love, this is true.  Though, I played many in Pathfinder.

I've had that opinion ever since 2nd ed.  But I'm partial to halflings and gnomes for my rogues.  :)

I've also been sadly rather busy today, something snuck up on me and kinda bit me in the ass. But my paladin will be a foreigner to the lands, more than likely a former soldier who's faith in Heironeous manifested in a more martial nature. He'd be seeking to improve his skills by defending others and given Dryad Woods current issues, that seems as good a place as any to help others and perhaps find like minded allies. Of course, there will be more nuance than that, but he'll definitely be on the side of good.

Normal 5th ed point buy.  I think I said epic at one point because I was looking at Pathfiinder at the same time.  My bad.  All equipment is standard per the PH.  No die rolls for money starting cash, etc.

Great. Can someone help me out with the ranger's starting equipment. I'm about 450 miles from my PHB and will be for the next few weeks. The basic rules only cover so much.

Not including background stuff;
Scale or leather armour
Two shortswords or two simple melee weapons
A dungeoneer's pack, or an explorer's pack
A longbow and 20 arrows.

The dungeoneer's pack contains a backpack, crowbar, hammer, 10 pitons, 10 torches, a tinderbox, 10 days of rations, a  waterskin and  50 ft of hemp rope.
The explorer's pack is a backpack, bedroll, mess kit, tinderbox, 10 torches, 10 days of rations, a waterskin and 50 ft of rope.

Thanks, Joanie.

DA, any issue with trading the two shortswords and longbow for longsword, shield, and shortbow? I'm considering a Justicar like build, but I may need to throw a level of fighter in there if I want to go the full route.

EDIT: Are any of the additional languages in use; Old Flan, Velondi, etc?

No additional languages to concern yourself with.  Let's stick to the PHB as written.  I'm quite sure you will find weapons more to your preference at some point.

Hi DA, is there room for another meat shield? I'm interested in playing a fighter, though I'm told you already have a barbarian, paladin, and ranger.

Always works for me.

The more, the merrier.  As stated, I can always have two parties from two different directions.  One big party, split the parties, etc.  There's a lot to do in this plot I have concocted.

Name: Dza Yucca
Human Fighter (Guild Artisan) 1
Personality: I am more interested in the past than the present. Whenever I meet a new person, I try to learn about their history if at all possible.
Ideals: Preservation We must protect the relics of the past, else their creators will fade from memory. (Lawful)
Bonds: I work to uncover the truth of past events, even if doing so is harmful to my nation or organization.
Flaws: There is an intense rivalry between myself and a particular colleague, and it often clouds my judgment.

Strength 16 ( +3 )Dexterity 10 ( +0 )Constitution 14 ( +2 )
Intelligence 14 ( +2 )Wisdom 10 ( +0 )Charisma 10 ( +0 )
Dza is a physically impressive specimen, chiseled from marble by a master of the human form. Her sword-arm is not especially nimble, but a firm shoulder lies behind it. A dual education in her Baklunish heritage and the Flanaess world in which she lives gave Dza an intellectual head start over her peers.

Skills: Athletics ( +5 ), History ( +4 ), Insight ( +2 ), Investigation ( +4 ), Persuasion ( +2 )
When she began working as a guardswoman in Melford, the garrison were too few to actively patrol. Often she would be called to respond to a crime hours or days later, and needed to rely on good interpersonal skills and shrewd investigation to track down a culprit. As the town guard strengthened, her reputation as a skilled fighter and woman of culture saw her stationed in the company of priests and scholars. Still, she has honed the training necessary to trounce a seedy tavern full of lowlifes should the need arise.

HP 12 AC 18 Saves Strength +5, Constitution +4
The elegant, acid etched piecemeal plates of her armor were handed down from her giant of a brother, a bit oversized even over her chainmail but blessed with the stopping power of mithril. A few years ago her brother ceased being able to wrestle her to her knees, and her constant exposure to roadborne illness has left her immune system very robust.

Languages: Common, Giant, Orc
The orcs of the Pomarj are a constant threat to Gnarleywood, and a learned woman like Dza understands the importance of understanding their language even if she's loath to utter it. With the incursion of giants into Geoff across the mountains, a number of experts on the fell creatures have passed through Melford, and although she's never seen an actual giant, their language and primeval culture has fascinated her.

Features
Guild Membership: Mouqollad Consortium
Proficiencies: Light, medium, heavy armor; Shields; Simple, martial weapons; Potter's tools
Fighting Style: Dueling
Second Wind ( 1d10+1 )
Feat: Sentinel
Dza's parents are far-ranging members of the western Mouqollad Consortium, a Baklunish organization of merchant clans and craftspersons merged into a powerful mercantile consortium. She has been named an honorary member herself, though she's never laid eyes on Ket nor sold wares through Consortium channels- the guild is more interested in her as a foot in the door to passage east than anything. Still, Dza takes pride in her heritage, and stands firm as a protector of the weak, able to stand her own with a simple blade against hulking orc savages.

Attacks

Longsword +5 1d8+5 Slashing Versatile (1d10)

I was thinking I'd come up on the party during their fight or just after. My character hangs out in the woods tracking nasties like the goblins they just fought. But Brannock may work out of Melford rather than Dryad Wood, too. I see no reason to write off the possibility that our characters know each other.
