Curse of the Crimson Throne Act 1: Edge of Anarchy

Recruitment.jpg

“Why do I live here? Why live in the most regimented, law-abiding, oppressive city this side of Bloodsworn Vale? Answer’s simple, mate. With the Sable Company flapping around in the clouds, Hellknights stomping around on the streets, and the Korvosan Guard caught between them; no one knows who’s got jurisdiction over what. You just gotta know when to hide and know when to bribe. Now, you wanna buy this magic dagger or not?”
—Corb “Birdtongue” Meever, Cerulean Society Fence


Act 1: Edge of Anarchy

Korvosa, the Jewel of Varisia, has long sparkled on Varisia’s southern shore. The city was established nearly 330 years ago by the human empire of Nerath. After the empire’s fall, the city now commands its own destiny. A line of Korvosan kings and queens emerged to rule the city, establishing an infamous seat power—the Crimson Throne. Rulers have sat upon the Crimson Throne for more than two centuries, and the city has flourished. Yet the monarchy always seems on the brink of disaster. The Crimson Throne is not a prize to be won—it is a curse. No monarch of Korvosa has died of old age, and none have produced an heir while ruling. Even though King Eodred II controls Korvosa more fully than any previous monarch, that control remains tenuous, and many secretly count the days until their latest king falls to what they call the Curse of the Crimson Throne.

Introduction:

This is a recruitment thread for a campaign of 4th edition of Dungeons and Dragons, for a party of five 1st level PCs.

This will be my second time DMing a PbP game (the first being my Scales of War thread here). I ask that you please pardon my surely unavoidable errors and spelling mistakes (English was not a major of mine), and I shall endeavor to be the best DM I can be.

Anyone may post an application, but precedence will be given to new players, especially players not currently involved in any other PbPs (2 PbPs are okay, but don’t expect to get picked if you’re playing in more than 2 PbP), and players who have not played the Curse of the Crimson Throne (both 3.5 and 4th edition converted versions respectively) Adventure Path before. If you fit any of these criteria, please say so in your application post. In addition, anyone with experience as a DM and who would be willing to provide me with a little advice and guidance are particularly welcome.

Curse of the Crimson Throne was originally a D&D 3.5 Adventure Path released by Paizo in 2007. When 4th edition came out, a lot of people tried to convert many of the old adventure paths for the latest edition of D&D, CotCT being one of them. I have heard many good things regarding Crimson Throne (and it's previous AP, Rise of the Runelords), so I decided to run the first part of this campaign.


The Particulars:

Standard setup. This is a play by post game; character sheets on Myth-Weavers (if you already have a completed character sheet on Orokos, that’s fine too). Rolls on Invisible Castle (or once again, should IC throw a hissy fit, use of Orokos’s Dice roller is fine too). I, TiamatZ, will be the DM. PCs' minimum post requirement is the usual one per day. Habitual unexplained failures to post will result in your character being ejected from the campaign.

Party Order: 1 Leader, 1 Defender, 1 Controller, 1 Range Striker, 1 Melee Striker; OR Range Leader, Controller, Melee Striker, Melee Striker, Defender

Please submit a level one character created with the 22 Point Buy system. Maximum submissions are one per person (so choose/design carefully).

Submission should include the standard stuff:

- A link to the sheet (Myth Weavers or Orokos)
- The character's name
- A picture of your character (optional; for token creation purposes)
- Personality traits, mannerisms and appearances.
- Your ties to Gaedren Lamm (see below)
- The CB summary stuff.
- And lastly, I want to know your availability to post here in the forums, as well as what DnD 4th ed. pbp games you play here.

Important:
Spoiler:

For your character, pretty much any official DnD 4th edition material is acceptable (supplement books, Dragon articles, etc.), except with regards to the race and class (see Character Backgrounds and Feats section below). Be prepared to post technical info if I request it.

Note about alignment: I am lax about alignment- there is no need to mark something on the sheet unless you want to. Evil characters are allowed on the condition that they have well thought-out background/goals and have a strong reason to work with a team. No backstabbing the party, no killing the shopkeeper because you felt like it, and most importantly of all, don’t be a griefer; everyone’s here to have fun, but I will throw out anyone that tries to ruin everyone else’s experience.

Deadline: Deadline is February 26 6:00 PM (Mid afternoon; GMT+2 time). Expect the game to begin sometime in the following week (March 1-March 5).


Plans for the Campaign

To ease myself into the DM's seat, I intend to start the campaign by playing through CotCT Act 1 first. What happens next will be determined by how the game went. As we are playing CotCT, I'm slowly trying to convert the other acts of the AP to 4th ed. If it was a great success, then we’ll continue with CotCT Act 2: Seven days to the Grave in 3-4 weeks time after we finish Edge of Anarchy.

Character Backgrounds and feats:


Races Allowed (Those not listed are banned):
- All PHB 1, 2 and 3 races (With the exception of Githzerai)
- Changeling, Genasi, Gnoll, Shadar-Kai, and Warforged are allowed.

Classes Banned from campaign:
All classes are okay (even PHB 3 preview and Assassin classes are allowed), with the exception of Hybrid characters.

Backgrounds:
Players may choose general backgrounds (like those from the PHB 2 and Power books etc.) ONLY! No Forgotten Realms! No Eberron! No Scales of War! ‘Nuff said.

The campaign will take place in the 4th edition “points of light” setting, but in the far-off land of Varasia. Your PC may hail from anywhere in the city of Korvosa, or from its neighboring Shoanti tribes. Your character can come from all walks of life, from a begger trying to make ends meet in the streets, to an aristocrat born in one of the many noble houses of Korvosa (check post below for more details).

Players retain their 100gp, but gain the adventurer’s kit, as well as any level 1 magical item of their choice (that’s 360 gp worth) absolutely FREE.

Also all characters are required to have first names and last names. Come on people, be creative :mrgreen:.

Update 1: Removed Drow as a playable race, but added Eladrin back in to compensate.
Update 2: Moved the deadline earlier to Friday

    I'd really like to take part in this campaign. I've never played in a play-by-post game, also I've never played The Curse of the Crimson Throne campaign. However I have DMed several real life campaigns and would be willing to lend a hand when asked to do so.

    My character's name is Nistal the Valorous. Since a last name is required he was born Nistal Tivana but he is no longer permitted to use his proper name which suits him just as well. Nistal the valorous is his performing name within the many walls of Korvosa.

    Here's his character sheet brought to you by Myth-Weavers.
    http://www.myth-weavers.com/sheetview.php?sheetid=185858

    Here's an image to be used for his token if he's chosen it's not perfect but it's pretty close to his actual appearance.

    Oh just a quick note about Nistal's equipment, I used his gold to purchase a few things for him, basic weaponry and the like as well as ritual components. As it turned out he's now flat broke which sort of suits the character. If that's not allowed I'll change it back.

    Nice.

    Can't play myself, since I'm a Pathfinder subscriber, but I always did dig CotCT. You guys are in for one hell of a ride. :winky:

    As a heads-up, you *may* want to nix Drow from playable PC races, unless you're changing Golarian Drow. They're... different. I'd post why, but it's a bit of a spoiler for a different AP, in case players might end up playing it.

    Thanks for the heads-up PMA. Granted, I've not really played any of the newer Pathfinder adventures (Last time me and some mates played some Rise of the Rune Lords a few years ago, just before 4th ed. came out), so I don't really know how Golarian Drow work. So I'll remove the Drow from playable races (but then place the Eladrin back in).

    Some parts of Pathfinder I simplified for new players due to the amount of depth that is Pathfinder e.g. because the game takes place in the "points-of-light" setting, I've defaulted the old gods from Pathfinder to the gods from the DMG and PHB1, so that it's easier for divine characters to choose deities and gain access to their power feats.

    It's more thematic than zomg broken, but what about the Harrowed feat from the CotCT player's guide? Probably could just run it straight as-is...

    Also: I read the Drow entry of Pathfinder. They are WAY different to the DnD version most people know of. So I figured that it was probably worth it that they're not allowed in the game.

    I think this will work out quite nicely with Canary's back story (which may need a little customizing to fit this setting). Gaedren Lamm is the one who put her on the path to mark the wealthy Baron in exchange for a cut of his wealth. After her plan fell to pieces and she left the man, she never held her end of the bargain up and Gaedren got nothing of the Baron's wealth. But neither did Canary...

    Summary from CB
    Spoiler:

    I am available to post at least once daily easily. I am currently in one play-by-post game on these forums, and I DM a Maptools game of my own and have been for just over a year. Glad to offer any constructive criticism with mechanics of course. I have never played this adventure path, but it looks super awesome and a perfect fit for this character concept.

    Sweet, thanks. Since the MP2 stuff isn't in the builder yet, I'll be constructing any possible character by hand for the most part. What I'll do is fill out a Mythweavers sheet with enough detail to fill you in, if that's cool with you.

    Side note: How much emphasis will be on Character Optimization? I am thinking about changing my human swordmage into a dwarf swordmage, but it will be less effective on the whole. Would people be cool with my playing a character that isn't all that it can be?

    Play-by-post games, by and large, don't have much combat. I don't think anyone will care if you roll 1d20+6/1d10+5 instead of 1d20+7/2d6+7.

    I played a really sub-optimal dwarf halberd bard that was swinging with a +6 (including his +1 weapon) and it was rough. Did it make us do poorly in combat? No way. Play what you want and what you think is fun. I've played a wizard before, but this character I drew up is just too vibrant in my mind to not play her. It just works out that I min-maxed the heck out of her because of the type of person she is it actually fits.

    In short: Play what you want, we'll have fun.

    Side note: How much emphasis will be on Character Optimization? I am thinking about changing my human swordmage into a dwarf swordmage, but it will be less effective on the whole. Would people be cool with my playing a character that isn't all that it can be?

    I'm all in favor of non-human characters, they make things feel much more otherworldly, at least they always do to me. I definitely wouldn't mind if you don't deal the most damage possible with every single attack for the sake of having a character who you like more. Oh and I'm glad to see someone submitting a swordmage by the way, they're my favorite defender class without a doubt.

    To start with, I have never played in a D&D 4E PBP game, though I was in an extremely short-lived game of Dogs in the Vineyard some time ago. I am available to post more than once per day, easily, though I must point out that as I'm on GMT, I won't be able to follow combat after 7-8pm EST which may cause problems. As previously mentioned, I currently play in no PBP games, and while I have never GMed 4E D&D in the past, I have GMed for several other games, including just about everything White Wolf ever did, Unknown Armies, Call of Cthulhu, and previous versions of Dungeons and Dragons. I've not played any of the incarnations of Curse of the Crimson Throne, however. That said, on with the application!

    Where would be this world's equivalent of the artic or other cold region? Which Empire has jurisdiction over these lands? Are they on good terms with Korvosa?
