[DnD 5E PbP] 28 Weeks Later (Game starts back up on page 9)
The port town of Anbury has fallen silent. Typically, merchants arrive every week from the coast, but the Fish Gate of Atex has been quiet for almost a month. Parties that have departed for Anbury haven’t returned, and rumors are beginning to spread. As members of the Order of the Rose – a secret society dedicated to the eradication of evil throughout the world – you have been tasked with finding out what happened in Anbury.
As secret societies are wont to do, they suspect the worst.
This is a play-by-post (PbP) game of Dungeons & Dragons 5E, run by me. I’m looking for 4 players. If you want to play, create a character of 6th level and post it here. I’ll be taking submissions until next Wednesday, 5/27. At some point on that day (or maybe the next day) I’ll select the party and we’ll get started.
For ability scores, you can use the standard array (15, 14, 13, 12, 10, 8) or a Point-Buy (27 points). The point-buy table is on page 10 of the PHB or on page 8 of the Basic Rules. No rolling.
Your allowed sources are the PHB and any official online PDFs (including Unearthed Arcana because why not).
You start with your regular starting equipment, plus an additional 500 + 1d10x25 gp that you can spend on mundane equipment as you see fit. No potions, scrolls, or other magic items.
Don’t make a loner. Don’t make a traitor, a lurker, a sulker, a skulker, a quiet-but-always-faithful-to-her-friends, a meathead, a talks-with-his-deeds-not-his-words, a fish-out-of-water, or any other kind of character that is going to wait for someone else to post. Your character needs to be the kind of character that will speak up and take action.
Your characters know each other, have worked together for a long time, and trust each other.
You don't have any magic items (yet).
A LITTLE MORE BACKGROUND
The Order of the Rose is based in Atex, the largest city on Halderth. That is where your characters live, although it doesn't need to be where they're from.
Within the Order, you are what is known as a Hunter. It's your job to go into dangerous situations, kill monsters, and destroy evil. Hunters are organized into small teams of 3-6 people.
Anbury is a port town. It started as a fishing village, but quickly grew larger when it became a key port of call for merchant ships traveling to/from both Port of Kings and Enar (by way of Iceport).
The dwarves of Halderth mostly stick to the northern mountain ranges. Though not officially a separate nation, Hammerfast is considered the dwarven capital city.
Most of the elves of Halderth are from the areas surrounding Ubani to the north and Serphah to the south. Unlike the dwarves, the elves of the Wild Wood are a sovereign nation, and are particularly isolationist.
Humans and the other races are spread out over pretty much everywhere else.
Host your character sheet on Myth-Weavers. I don’t want to manage a bunch of PDFs.
We will use the forum’s built-in dice rolling feature for rolls.
I do most of my posting during the hours of 9am – 5pm PST. I don’t post much on the weekends.
