This is a Play By Posts 4th Edition Dungeons and Dragons campaign intended for five players starting at level one using a custom campaign setting and standard rules.
During the game you must post at least once per day on weekdays, I'm willing to give leeway but if we're waiting on an important action from a character I will make it for the player.
We will be using Mythweavers
for character sheets and Invisible Castle
for dice rolling.
For character creation I'm allowing content from any 4E Wizards produced book(PHB1/2, Martial Power) but not from the D&D magazines. I should mention I only have the core books so be sure to give exact details on things from non-core books for my current benefit.
Characters are to be made using the Standard 22-Point Buy System with 100gp for starting equipment.

(when refering to time, the present is considered the start of the campaign game)
Being the most populated continent in the world Evefront is a melting pot of various races populating the land. The environment like the residents is also filled with variety with the the icey peaks of the Northern Mountains, the temperate forests within the territories of Mandrith and Vlax, the flat plains of Tremas and Thazal, the various jungles and swamps within Crimos, and the deadly Szathza Desert.
One thing that has always been constant within Evefront is conflict stretching back almost a millennium to wars between the older races such as Elfs and Dwarfs for control of valuable lands. While few outright wars exist at the time of our adventures the various governments and races have a complex multi-polar power system with alliances and oppositions changing over time. Along with the possibility of an invading country the common person living in Evefront also must contend with more immediate dangers such as aggressive monsters who often see most of the races as either food or potential slaves. While some places are more safe than others such as Thazal with it's mighty guard and the Church of Bahamut others are primarily untamed wilderness only inhabited by the toughest of the tough.
For these two reasons Evefront is always in need of those who are able to rise above the common folk as true heroes. While adventurers will often have different reasons for putting their lives in danger, whether for the good of their god, the request of their leadership, out of their own kindness, or the allure of riches and fame, adventurers are always valued within this world.
Evefront is designated into nineteen different territories mostly based off political treaties and natural features. While most territories are controlled by one central government some governments have control over multiple territories. For example the Kingdom of Thazal has control of Thazal, Tremas, Mandrith, and Vlax. Some territories also have multiple governments battling for control within it's boarders such as Lothan. In most cases there is very little major warfare existing within Evefront except for specific cases. As described above Lothan is one of the most disputed pieces of land due to it's many natural resources and access to many trades routes. Also the Dwarfs of Krok and the Elves of Dermec are within a centuries old conflict that dates back to the original creation of these two governments.
One of the most important aspects of this world Is colonization. About 20 years ago a continent which for the most part had been unknown to many of the residents of Evefront has been discovered far east of Evefront across the massive Acernot Ocean. All of the major governments see this new land as a source of great new value both for resources and prestige. While there are many colonies within this new continent of Aleryntor much of it has not been explored and is still residence to many inhabitants who do not approve of this incursion.
In many ways Evefront is similar to Europe within it's colonial era with it's many regional disputes and multi-polar power system.
The people have spoken we will be playing the
The Black Ops Adventure:
The players as an established adventuring party are hired under the table by the Kingdom of Thazal in order to take out leaders or organizations which threaten the stability and their control of the region.
with a dash of
The Colonization Adventure:
If you like to join just post what adventure your most interested in and the character you'd like to play as(if you really want you can make separate characters for the adventures). I don't need a character sheet right away but if it is not present by the deadline you will not be considered. The deadline for character submissions will be April 1st(Next Wednesday)
. I will be selecting which adventure I will be using on March 28(this Saturday)
so if there's an adventure you really want to do make a post before then. I'm doing it this way so people can modify or make their characters based on what adventure we end up playing.
Once April 1st rolls around I will be selecting 5 characters based on party balance, which characters looks interesting to me and possibly random choice.
