Age of Ascension
This is a recruitment for a 4E campaign taking place in my homebrew point of light setting Age of Ascension
. This is a setting where I mainly have the skeletal structure of the setting established, but I will be developing the setting further along with the aid of the players. If I bring the party to a town and one of them decide to say that it is protected by a spirit, then that will become cannon. Though this would allow me to have fun with said spirit and decide what to do with it.
Age of Ascension will play-by-post campaign taking the player from level 1 to level 30. Characters begin at 1st level and should be created using either the online character builder or the cbloader updated offline character builder (if you still have it). Use the standard point buy system to generate ability scores and follow character creation per the builder/books. I will be selecting 5 players to play in this, and I’m not a stickler for the recommended party composition of 1 leader/ 1 controller/ 1 striker/ 1 defender/ and one misc. So feel free to make whatever character you want, and do not try to cater to whatever slot has the least applications. Finally one slot is already reserved for a friend of mine, who unless he’s changed his mind, will be playing a gnome hexblade.
• Classes Allowed:
• Source Books for Classes:
Any, if you choose a Dark Sun theme please reflavour it to be more setting specific
General backgrounds only (no Dark Sun, no Eberron, no Forgotten Realms)
• Races Allowed:
Any, but be warned I have a personal prejudice against Shardminds, Githzerai, and Minotaurs. So if you’d like to play one of those races you’d better make them damn interesting.
• Point Buy:
100 gp and one potion of healing
• Character Sheets:
All character sheets must be hosted at http://4e.Orokos.com
or on myth-weavers. Please post a character builder summary when making your application.

Finally, to be considered for this campaign, each prospective player must submit a character biography that details explain why they’re adventuring in this world.
At least two paragraphs about the characters background ending with them in Malien.
• Enemies & Allies:
Please include one enemy and one ally that will be integrated into the campaign setting and be used as contacts or foes during this game. This will help me plan out a personal plotline to integrate into the game.
• Physical Description:
A few sentences that describes how your character typically looks on a day to day basis.
Please provide a picture of your character for me to create a token of your character.
• Personality Traits:
At least one paragraph detailing your characters personality.
• Participation Requirements:
I would like to have enough group participation that both the IC & OOC threads sees some activity on a daily basis, accounting for lulls during holidays
Each player must select a font color for their in character speech, but that can be decided upon after the party selection has been made.
All combat posts must end with their action economy in spoilers. For example:
Shift to A3
Mark all adjacent enemies
Standard:Melee Basic Attack vs K1
25 vs AC, 10 damage
Wardens Fury on anyone who attacks the wizard. (Note: If you do not have an interrupt or reaction prepared you can ignore this section. If you decided to change your mind after I perform an action you are still free to do so, so don’t worry about listing all prepared actions for every scenario.)
I have always wanted to try using Drama Cards
and will be using them for this game. Each player will start off with three copper cards and will gain more as the game progress. Since I’ve never used them before how these will be implemented will change as the game progress until we find a system we all like. For now I will be using a system where each player gains one copper card after each encounter, and silver one after every level. Each player will have a max hand of 7, and can trade in three cards of the same color for one upgraded one. I wish these could be drawn randomly so that not even I will know what cards each player will have, but since handtracker doesn’t have a system for this I will have to random them out using a random number generator.
Rule of Awesome
If there is some action that you think will be really badass for your character to do but you’re not sure if I’d allow it, feel free to ask, however the answer will almost always be yes
not only that but I’d probably reward you with a copper drama card.
That seems to be it for now, although I’m sure I’m probably missing something. I’ll keep this ad updated until it closes. Also feel free to ask any question you may have in regards to the setting or whatever’s allowed.
