Okay, moving into a recruiting phase.Initiative wrote:
- Salazar and Kaine
- Pirates (x6)
Recruiting four adventurers, level 3 using the standard array for attributes (15,14,13,12,10,8), max HP for first level, then average (Half die size +1) for level 2 and onward. Starting gear will consist of what you normally get for first level, any additional mundane gear within reason you can carry, and a horse. Additionally starting with 300 gold in whatever form you wish to have it (trade goods, gems, coins, whatever)
I really want to have a balanced party utilizing the old 4-role structure of Tank, Melee Striker, Ranged Striker and Support/Leader. These don't have to be traditional builds, but as long as the spirit is intact, we're good.
Additionally, all characters must be adventurers in a true sense. They travel and adventure. They don't have goals that result in them settling down in a place, whether to reclaim their throne or create a powerbase of some sort. The home for these adventurers is the road and each other.
Lastly, I would like each character to have connections to other characters in the party such that every character is linked to every other at least through another character. Obviously, this is more difficult before characters are selected, but posing potential links is just fine until characters are chosen.
-All published first-party materials.
-Any misc Wizards of the Coast material compatible with 5E (IE: Magic the Gathering Planewalk, Guide to Ravnica, etc)
-Feats (Including Unearthed Arcana)
-Variant options (human, ranger, etc)
Not Allowed content:
-Third-party content. (I know there's some cool stuff, but I also don't have access to it all, so have to blanket nope it)
-Older versions of similar content (IE: Shadow Sorcerer from Unearthed Arcana versus Shadow Sorcerer from Xanathar's Guide to Everything)
Salazar - Yuan Ti Criminal Bard/Warlock(Hexblade) - Flynnarrol
Exile - Wood Elf Outlander Revised Ranger (Hunter Conclave) - Doctor Malsyn
Kriv of Clan Myastan - Dragonborn Noble Paladin (Oath of Devotion) - McGuffin
Baern - Dwarven Brobarian (Berzerker) - Spectrum
Heart - Warforged (Envoy) Hermit Cleric (Life Domain) - Bill from Accounting
Kaine - Half-Kor Investigator Monk(Way of the Open Hand) - StarGuard
Now that life is smoothing out for me (until the next curveball it throws my way that is) I've been thinking about running a D&d 5e game here.
What I had in mind is a wandering adventurers sort of campaign, where the characters aren't rooted in one place and adventure for the sake of adventuring (and maybe personal ambitions that don't involve settling down in one place. Righting wrongs, challenging rivals to become the best, etc)
For the world, general fantasy fare, magic is uncommon, but recognized as not inherently good or evil, much like any weapon or tool. We can do world building to suit character concepts, IE maybe you don't want drow to be seen as inherently evil for your drow character to fit in better than being shot at on sight (or maybe the challenge of that excites you), we can work something into the world lore for that.
As for characters, planning to start at level 1, standard array, but any published, but not home brewed, material is valid. So Forgotten Realms, Eberron and Ravnica races and elements can all coexist and can be worked into the lore. Unearthed Arcana is similarly okay, but only the most recent version of anything. (IE, published Hexblade is okay, but not Unearthed Acana Hexblade)
Probably looking for 4 players filling your standard party roles: tank, melee DPS, ranged DPS and leader/support. The characters don't have to be STRICTLY those roles, but should have the spirit of them. I want a party that is a party. Speaking of which, I would like every member of the party to have a tie to at least one other party member.
I know that can be tricky before knowing who all is in, but I've also seen people throw around ideas for "hey if both our characters get in, we could do this" type lists for all other applicants, so even rough ideas of possible ties would be great and can help with the selection process too.
So, any questions or interest?
