The Disappearance of Inigo Sharpe
A 13th Age PbP Adventure
Inigo Sharpe has gone missing.
Seer. Artificer. Magician. Architect. Inigo Sharpe was a true Renaissance man and a trusted confident of many of the Icons. He worked with the Emperor to engineer vast bridges, roads, and aqueducts. He went on vision quests and talked deep into the night on philosophy with the Priestess. He taught the students of the Archmage and together crafted some of the finest magic items in the Empire. Inigo even shared ale and wine with the Dwarf King and Elf Queen, respectively.
That was, of course, till tragedy occurred...
An item of great power Inigo crafted himself went horribly wrong. Inigo was unaccustomed to failure, let alone this level of catastrophic failure, and fell on desperate times. He succumbed to drink, often showing up at public appearances inebriated and incomprehensible, rant belligerantly during classes he taught at the academy. He would stumbled around the Preistess's meditation halls singing dirges with a bottle in tow. Inigo even stopped showing up to the Emperor's meeting regarding the expansion and improvement of the Dragon Empire. It wasn't long before the Icons were forced to distance themselves from Inigo and bar him from their strongholds. Before too long the once great hero Inigo Sharpe disappeared into the darkened alleys lite only by late-night pubs, never to be seen again.
However, just because Inigo feel out of favor with the Icons does not mean they had abandoned him. From a distance the Icons keep on eye on their once friend, hoping that the great man he had once been would return. Recently, Inigo has gone missing, beyond even the eyes of the Icons. Fearful that he may have been taken or even kill by one of the more villanous Icons, who may still hold grudges against Inigo, the Icons have reached out for anyone willing to search for the lost hero.Character Creation
While I prefer players use the arrays provided in the Appendix, if you prefer to test your lucky using the roll method that is perfectly acceptable. If you choose to roll, you must do it here in this thread
. No restriction on classes, races, etc. All characters will begin at level 1. Whatever you want to play is cool with me, just remember you will have to justify whatever choices you've made during character creation in game. For example, I may call on you tell me a story about the time you used that Background in the past in a similar situation. Should we all enjoy ourselves, this one-shot could turn into a ongoing, eventually leading into the Eyes of the Stone Thief mega-dungeon.
Recruitment will continue through 6/30/17, at which point I will pick my favorite submissions.Our Adventure's Heroes@Elvenshae Tomas à Dunsanin
