Comments: I've been building and refining old builds all week at wo..er, in my free time so it time to get a bunch posted. Kicking off this weekend build dump is another NPC for my heroes to go up against, Surath the Skull Cleaver, minotaur chieftain and warlord. Need to think more about his backstory, but then again, maybe I don’t. He’s big, he’s bad, he’s angry. Probably don’t need more than that.

ATHANOS

Post by Thorpocalypse » Sun Feb 04, 2018 5:09 am

Image

Inspired by Greek mythology and such...

---------------------------------------------------------------

ATHANOS

Athanos is ruled by an awe-inspiring pantheon of gods. Mortals tremble before them, feel the sting of their petty whims, and live in terror of their wrath. It is a domain where barbaric, cave-dwelling minotaurs descend on wayward travelers. Giants stalk the land, drawing strength from the terrain on which they tread. At sea, massive krakens prowl its depths, and sirens lure its sailors to their demise. Yet amid such colossal perils, mortals have found a way to endure, and it is here that the hero's mantle is raised highest.

Not only have the mortals endured, they have managed to thrive, for Athanos is also a land where civilization is protected behind the walls of great poleis, each city-state a bulwark against the raging monsters that roam the more savage places of Athanos. Calarta, the polis of learning, progress, magic, and devotion to the gods, is a testament to the achievements of civilized humanity. It is hemmed in by vast golden wheat fields and the Siren Sea, and defended by the Reverent Army. In the polis of Cythidos, martial prowess is held in the highest esteem. Cythidosian warriors have reached near-mythic status throughout Athanos. The imposing cliff-top fortress of Cythidos lies at the center of a network of outposts that serve to protect the rest of Athanos, a fact that comforts many Athanosians. Theusis, the isolated polis surrounded by concentric rings of forest, is fiercely independent. Strong bonds connect its inhabitants, and all in Theusis share a veneration of nature.

COMPLICATIONS:
Emotionally Stunted: Thri-Kreen do not have personalities like many other humanoids.
Monstrous Appearance: The Thri-Kreen's insectoid appearance can make it difficult for them fit into "normal" societal situations.
Motivation: Unlike many members of her brood, Tak-Cha is infinitely curious about the outside world and seeks to learn and expeirence as much of it as she can.
Naïve: Being raised in the Thri-Kreen society, Tak-Cha has little knowledge of the otherside world and other customs.
Phobia: Thri-Kreen are from the deserts and wastes so they do not swim and have a fear of drowning.
Relationships: She has grown very fond of Drenna and Naenen.

Abilities 30 + Skills 13 (26 ranks) + Advantages 15 + Powers 25 + Defenses 7 = 90 / 90

Comments: Not 100% sure of this first run a Thri-Kreen PC but I think I hit the high points. Thri-Kreen are insect people, or more the point, mantis people that live in the arid plains and deserts. They have been around through several editions of D&D and are a fave of a lot of people. I never really went up against or played one so I thought I would rectify that with Tak-Cha.

Tak-Cha was separated from her people after an attack by a rival clutch and ended up making her way to the outer edges of the King’s Patrol area in Gilthorian where she ran into Naenen the Firbolg who had just begun his Druid training. They immediately took a liking to each and other and have been inseparable ever since.

Sekhumnkhet

Post by Thorpocalypse » Sun Feb 04, 2018 5:54 am

Image

Inspired the Egyptian themed MTG set, which is one of my all-time favorites storyline-wise...

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SEKHUMNKHET

Towering, gold-encrusted monuments break the unending monotony of a horizon formed of sun-blasted sand. Awe-inspiring, animal-headed gods walk among the people, offering them care and protection from the horrors of the desert. A wide, life-giving river offers its abundant bounty, providing for every physical need. Happy, hopeful people offer sacrifices in grand temples dedicated to their benevolent gods, addressing their spiritual needs. They know that this life—wonderful as it is—is just the beginning, the prelude to the perfection that awaits them in the afterlife, promised to them by their God-Pharaoh.

Sekhumnkhet is a land of dichotomy. Beyond the lush river valley lies endless, scorching desert. Accursed, desiccated mummies roam the desert, while carefully embalmed mummies attend to the needs of the living in the glorious city. The people have everything they need—they are protected from the desert heat and wandering mummies by a magical barrier, and they spend their lives in focused training, honing their bodies and minds to perfection. Yet they eagerly anticipate the time when they will be permitted to die in combat and leave this world behind.

The gods are custodians of the path to the afterlife, established by the God-Pharaoh to purify and perfect the people who follow it and undergo its trials. Each god oversees one of the five trials and instructs the initiates who are preparing to face the trial, helping them to cultivate one of the five aspects of mortal perfection: solidarity, knowledge, strength, ambition, and zeal.

On the surface, Sekhumnkhet seems like a marvelous place to live, but something unsettling and nefarious lurks behind the grand facade...

COMPLICATIONS:
Honor: Firbolgs are naturally good creatures overall and Naenen is one of the most honorable.
Monstrous Appearance: Frirbolgs have a hard time fitting into "normal" society due to size and unique appearance.
Motivation: Naenen wants to protect nature and his friends from evil.
Power Loss: Druids need to be able to speak and gesture to cast their spells.
Rivalry: Firbolgs do not get along with most other giants.

Abilities 28 + Skills 10 (20 ranks) + Advantages 4 + Powers 40 + Defenses 8 = 90 / 90

Comments: How can you not love Firbolgs? Naenen here is my first take on one and I made him a Druid since Firbolgs have great ties to nature and I never saw those big lugs as good rangers, but I guess they could be.

Naenen has decided to leave his tribe and see the world and met up with Tak-Cha when she was being hassled by some brigands. After saving her, Tak-Cha began to follow him and they have been close friends ever since.

Wolfenstrahd

Post by Thorpocalypse » Sun Feb 04, 2018 6:40 am

Gothic settings are great to role play in. I'm currently playing through the Curse of Strahd campaign in my FTF D&D group and it's been a lot of fun so far. So taking some cues from that, the gothic MTG setting and some of the great RPG video games of all time, here is...

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WOLFENSTRAHD

When the light fades and the moon rises over Wolfenstrahd, humanity becomes the universal prey. Packs of werewolves are drawn out by the moon, their humanity washed away by animal rage. Vampire families bare their fangs at the scent of human blood. Hordes of walking dead lurch across the manors and moors, driven by an innate hunger for the living. Alchemically created abominations twitch to life in alchemists' laboratories. Geists haunt the huddled human towns and terrify travelers along the dark crossways in between. From Wolfenstrahd's depths, powerful demons and impish devils plot humanity's downfall.

The humans of Wolfenstrahd have done their best to fight back. They form torch-wielding mobs to cleanse the abominations with fire. They train specialized holy warriors called cathars to strike back against the supernatural horrors. Most of all, they brandish the power of the Church of Avacyn. The Church is named for its leader, the powerful archangel Avacyn who was created to safeguard humanity and allow them to coexist with their predators.

Comments: This is my take on an Aasimar Fiend Hunter, Lady Laurien Montrayne. I felt like making an Elsa Bloodstone expy so I whipped her up based on her and the sweet art I ran across.

Lady Laurien is an Aasimar who comes from a well to do family from Wolfenstrahd where she learned her fiend and monster hunting skills as a matter of survival.

Vellenza

Post by Thorpocalypse » Sun Feb 04, 2018 7:01 am

Image

Image

The first two Assassin's Creed games are two of my faves. I became a huge fan of Ezio and Altair and the concept of the Assassin's Guild. I also am a fan of the Conspiracy set of MTG and the two are just ripe for crossover with their Italian renaissance setting. So...

--------------------------------------------------------------------

VELLENZA

Country of perpetual renaissance, Vellenza's beautiful cities are known across the continent for their breathtaking architecture and the ingenuity of their inventors. Despite its scenic vistas, Vellenza is one of the most dangerous planes an adventurer can visit. Every sleeve hides a dagger, every smile a lie. In the capital of Vellenza —Tuliani, the High City—murder and subterfuge are common. Here, the fine print has fine print. Beneath the thin veil of civility, political factions and ruthless thugs vie for control of Tuliani. Those who sit in the legislative seats of the High City control the vote, and the laws issued from Tuliani mystically bind the populace. Adventurers travelling to Vellenza should note that murder, manslaughter, and violence have never been outlawed—in fact, they are tools utilized by politicians on a regular basis.

Outside of Tuliani, the populace lives in smaller towns run by local government. Although they are not directly involved in the schemes of Tuliani, the towns are still rife with corruption and back-alley dealings. The massacre of Tadiz is a grim reminder of this truth. Although far from the High City and bordering the wilderness, everyone was viciously murdered here years ago, their lives lost to an unknown scheme. The expansive wilderness also remains unexplored. The explorer Selvala was one of the first to travel the frontier, trying to find the world beyond the debauchery of nobles. Although the magic of the High City still dictates a citizen's actions, deep in the ancient forests, there is a promise of peace, for a reprieve from the backstabbing—and frontstabbing—of Vellenzian politics.

Comments: I know I’ve been saying this for over 10 years when I post builds, but I really cannot wait to test Magdalena. The minute I started considering takes on the MTG settings for part of my world and I saw Fiora, I knew I was going to include the Asssassin’s Guild too. So obviously I was going to do a PC take on one. I was originally going to go with an Ezio expy, but after looking at some art, I had to go with a female.

Magdalena is the little sister of well known (well, amongst the underworld) assassin Giuseppe Di Fiori. Wanting to forge her own path she decided to get out of Tuliani and ply her trade elsewhere. She’s met with mixed success as she didn’t complete all of her training but her natural ability and, so far, her luck, has allowed her to be moderately successful. She’s made her way to Gilthorian where appears she will meet up with some adventurers who will help her use her skills for the right reasons.

Good God! So many builds! You're shaming ME with this stuff, now :)!

I love the Shokan Monk idea- I never added any PCs to my Castellia campaign from the Shokan race, oddly. All of those cities are really cool, too- I kind of just made indiscriminate "kingdoms" and characters without making actual REAL settings for stuff. I should really look into that. I'm digging the low-end PC builds of the more "odd" races, like Firbolg, Thri-Kreen, and others.

I can smell the 5th Edition material all over this thread :P

Kudos to you Thorp for not butchering any Italian name with these last posts.

This is awesome stuff. Digging the gothic setting and the Assassin's Creed stuff especially. Are you planning on doing more with your Fantasy Wakanda (my D&D setting has a version, too because of course you need one) - I'd love to see more of that.

Like I said before, sitting around with the laid up wife for the past couple of weeks has given me time to get back into the swing. I'm not feeling the superhero stuff at the moment (although that will probably change after Black Panther, of course). The last x-rays did show a hairline crack so that actually made her feel better since it explained the pain that wasn't being accounted for with the initial x-rays. Life lesson folks, do NOT just take the ER's word for things. They're generally pretty good, but they're like McDonald's, get you in, get you out, get the next patient in. Always follow up with your primary care physician after if it's anything even moderately serious, especially with this John Sublime-like Flu that's going around.

Originally I was going to make an NPC or PC from every race in my world. Then I realized I'm closing in on 50 races, not counting dragons, giants and other more monstrous creatures that could almost be "races". Probably not going to happen. I'm up to 28 PCs at the moment, so that throws out my other plan of trying to play them all, too. I'll get to some of them, though. I'm getting ready to hit some playtesting again. I loaded up on one-shot adventures at Drive-Thru RPG so I just need to do a little converting and I should have some stuff posted in a couple of weeks, if not sooner.

No doubt. I am plucking heavily from that and the Magic the Gathering lore for things right now just because I am really pleased with where Wizards is going with both of those properties at the moment. I keep toying with the idea of starting a 5E thread, but haven't really taken the time to think about to convert superheroes over and not just do my own takes on fantasy stuff. I'll keep kicking it around, maybe I'll jump on it soon.

And I am really glad I did OK with the Italian names. If I keep doing more stuff, call me out if I screw something up. Same with anyone familiar with any if the settings I'm doing based on other cultures. I'd like to be as accurate as possible on things because I know how frustrating it can when it seems like people don't take your culture seriously. And I certainly do try to respect all culture, I just tend to be...um, well, stupid, sometimes and it doesn't always come off that way. Although I guess I'm far from the only one that has had that happen. ;)
