The Basics: This is an adventure set in a custom world roughly analogous to Greyhawk. The world it takes place in is both lovely and lethal. It can captivate with ineffable beauty, and kill with cold dispatch. Romance, treasures, monsters, glory and doom await! Or, so you'd like to think. There is no set mission or objective. You decide what you want to do and where you want to go. Or at least what you want to try and do and where you would like to go. Wanting is one thing, getting is something else.
Sounds like a typical fantasy RPG, doesn't it? Well, there's a twist: I'm designing this world for evil
characters to adventure in. You could call it an anti-adventure. So if you want to play an ogre or orc that preys on human women, or the leader of a band of cut-throats, or some other wicked monster, now is your chance. A world is yours to plunder! But beware...Good will fight back!
As far as monster types, I'm fairly open. My only caveat is that your monster/baddie be anthropomorphic, and not be too overpowered. It doesn't have to be like a first-level D&D character, but no higher-level demons that can throw ten-dice fireballs out of their fingertips, or illithids that can fry the brains of a whole legion of soldiers, or vampires, or drow elves. You can have a couple ranks in Badass if you want, but no more than three or so. We want to have room for your creature to grow, after all...
Examples of baddies eligible for this game include (but are certainly not limited to):
A journeyman orc warrior: a skilled though not epic fighter, seeking to rise in power by accreting battle experience, treasure and slaves.
A cutthroat pirate who finds himself stranded, and decides to continue going rogue, preying on villagers and caravans.
An ogre who comes out of the woods when he finds a new family of humans has carved out a homestead too near his abode.
An incubus who is loosed into the material plane...weak and in need of sustenance to grow stronger and more powerful.
A gargoyle whose underground abode has been disturbed by miners, and who decides to exact revenge.
This being Elliquiy, of course there's a sexual aspect to this...in all likelihood, one of your creature's goals is going to be to impregnate some of the local womenfolk...and their sisters and mothers as well. Maybe aunts and grandmothers, too, if you're really spoiling for trouble and randy. You've got to have some fun on your way to being an Evil Overlord, after all. Most of the females will be played by Yours Truly, though if you want to apply to play a female, you're welcome to do so.
I'm going to use a minimalist, behind-the-counter system for this game. What will happen when there is a contested action is that I'll calculate the odds of success and throw dice. As your character progresses, he or she will get "buffs" that give bonuses to a chance to succeed. For an example, say your character wants to shoot an arrow into a guard. The range is 75', the guard is wearing leather armor, so the base chance of success is 60%. However, your character has some history with the bow, so he gets a 10% bonus. There are no tables or anything to consult...I just wing it on a case-by-case basis. Makes things simpler.
