Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

[D&D4e] The Solist Gulnath

Right, this game was born of the SE++ D&D thread, but we figured it would be rude to keep cluttering the place up, so now we have our own thread, hooray! The game is a combination Maptool/Vent affair that meets (will meet) weekly on Mondays.

Ye olde Setting Info
The world of Vestum is barbaric and dangerous place, where the civilized races huddle in small nations and struggle mightily to stave of destruction for another generation. From time to time a mighty empire will form, but with few exceptions, almost all are headed by a semi-mythical figure, and collapse when their heroic founder passes beyond the veil. Perhaps the only consolation is that with external threats so prevalent, the few nation states that cling to existence rarely have the inclination to make war on one another.

It is in the semi-barbaric northlands that the most recent of these heroic figures has risen, an outcast and heretic priest of the Fire god Fwer renounced his faith and wandered into the wilderness, seemingly never to be seen again. Unfortunately for the followers of Fwer, he has returned from his sojourn at the head of a mighty host of the barbarous steppes people, and called to his side many diverse and veteran mercenaries. For now his host remains at the very edges of Fwerysp while the mercenary units coalesce. However, for some few of the newly arrived mercenaries, there are other plans...
Spoiler:

For those of you feeling uncreative, the Ironmane Kingdoms follow the basic PHB theology, with Bahamut obviously recieving pride of place, but the other deities are present there. So if you'd like to just use the PHB gods, write your background as if you are from there.

Previous Adventures
The party was summoned before Warchief Ragnutha Rao, who commands the unbonded mercenaries in the Solist army. He informed them that the Son of the SUn would like them to deal with a few minor issues for him while the army is mustering. The first of these is to track down and eliminate a group of Mun'Atan slavers who are operating in southern Fwerysp. Ata'Mun cannot be allowed a foothold in the northlands.

The party ventured forth, proving victorious against a Fweryspian recon patrol, but running into difficulties when they interrupted a Fwerist sacrificial ceremony in the village of Parsuin. It is here that Nghast Sidear, the Barbarian, is slain after impaling the Fire Priest leading the ceremony. The party paid Nghast their respects and gathered from the corpse of the fire priest a strange stone tablet.

The Party
[strike]Nghast Sidaer[/strike] (deceased) Human Barbarian - DE?AD
[strike]Skaern Onveln[/strike] (deceased) Doppleganger Rogue - DE?AD

The Time

Our usual meeting time is on Mondays at around 2:00pm PST, although the time is likely to change a bit

The Tools

We play with Maptool version 1.3.b53, which is the development candidate. We will also meet in the G&T Vent server for random OOC voice shenanigans.

The Recruitment
Currently full up.

    Lardalish is in, although bad things will happen to Riardon frequently until he fixes my name in his post.

    Clearly, Lardalish doesn't care about red-robed people.

    Anyone know how to have a macro ask me how many times to roll a die? Cause Ive got alot of area attacks and Id like to be able to roll one macro rather than lots.

    Thanks, but I actually managed to find a tutorial that explained thing fairly well. I think I've got it all figured out now.

    Alrighty, I am hopping in Vent now. We're going to use the PA vent instead of the SE++ one because I seem to recall there being a couple annoying gits floating around in the other one. server info is as follows:
    server: V53.DARKSTARLLC.COM
    port: 11065
    I'm in Game on 4

    The actual game will begin in 30 minutes or so.

    We do in fact. I bet you could even run two characters over the same computer if you had to, although I think it would be more fun if you had two comps set up with mics and everything.

    Also, for your consideration, this is the likely Channel Divinity feat for Sol:
    Channel Divinity:
    Sol's Shield
    The light of the Sunlord coalesces around you to blind your foes and protect you from harm.
    Encounter - Divine
    Immediate Interrupt
    Personal
    Trigger: You are hit by an attack
    Effect: You gain concealment until the end of your next turn.

    Sounds good.

    And yeah, we have two comps, just one mic. She'll get on Vent so she can hear everything, though.

    I dont wanna attempt to force her hand, but remember how the last session went without a defender. And then take a look at what class we are missing.

    Juuuuuust sayin.

  • Kayne Red RobeKayne Red Robe Registered User regular
    edited January 2009
    That'll work.
    Spoiler:

    Edit: Lardy, Sombrero said he might try and switch to a Swordmage. While I am not super familiar with the class, it is a Defender.

    I am really interested in joining this, though it seems you might already be getting a fifth member. I am also European, the early time should make it possible for me to join you but I do not know exactly what timezone you are in.

    Will await a reply before I start working on a character. I had a Dragonborn warrior in mind, but that could change on demand.

    So, Kayne, are you still handing out background bonuses like they're going out of style, or did I go and mess that up by dying horribly?

    It never rains but it pours. I had no responses for like 4 days and then three people today, unfortunately, you are the last of those three so you miss out, for now. Feel free to keep watching the thread though, I may find a place for you at some point.

    Re Background bonuses: Yes, in fact I just realized I forgot to give Lardalish his. Fortunately it didn't come into play last session. When I think of one for your rogue I will let you know.

    Well, Kayne was apparently dishing out bonuses based on character backgrounds before the last session. Nghast actually got free Low-Light Vision thanks to his growing up in a cave - I'm not sure what anyone else got.

    Ha. Okay. Let her know that she's welcome to join in whenever though. I am thinking that I will have an easier time balancing for a party of six (if everyone actually shows) then a party of four.
