The coastal town of Sandpoint has faced few trials and dangers over the course of its forty-two year history, but unfortunately, that is all about to change. Unknown to the town’s founders, they chose to build their community over the ruins of an ancient stronghold once used as laboratory and prison, a place where horrific experiments and unholy explorations into what divides man from monster took place. These are the Catacombs of Wrath, one of several such sites used by Runelord Alaznist’s apprentices during Thassilon’s height, a place where arcanists explored and perfected the stolen arts of lifeshaping and fleshwarping. When Thassilon fell, these catacombs went dormant, but the one buried under Sandpoint was not fated to stay that way.
Recruiting for a Pathfinder campaign, Rise of the Runelords. I know not everyone has invested in Pathfinder books, so fortunately all of the rules and everything you could possibly need are available for free online at www.d20pfsrd.com.
I'm going to be running this campaign dice-lite. Not everything will be decided by skill checks and dice rolls, but also on how well you role play the conversation, the action, etc. If you don't want to role play it, you can let the dice roll do the talking. Also, combat will be played a bit differently. Each round all players roll their attacks and damages and let me know if you're moving. Initiative will determine what takes effect first, but this way combat can move much faster for a play-by-post. Monster stats won't be posted, but I'll use descriptors after each round to let you know if your attacks hit and how much damage they've done.
We will be using EpicWords to keep track of in character posts, XP, extra journal posting, rolls, etc. Penny Arcade forums will be used for out of character posts. EpicWords.com is free, and I have a paid account for file storage and all the extra features so you don't need to. The URL for my campaign is: www.epicwords.com/Runelords
What do I need to do to join the campaign?
- Create an EpicWords.com account and join my campaign (passcode: runelordspa)
- Create a level 1 character using PF rules found at www.d20pfsrd.com Character Creation

I created) to EpicWords
- Upload a character portrait
- Post a link to your character here along with a little backstory of who they are
- Post at least every other weekday, posting on weekends not expected
Going to need at least 4 characters, and will max out at 6.
I'm thinking of starting the campaign with the new year, once all the hub-bub of the Christmas holiday and New Year are done. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me! I'm sure there's stuff I forgot to include in this post.
