In the year 250, a powerful force rises against the mystical chains that binds it. In the ensuing revolution and change of government, magic and the powers that once enforced an arcane brotherhood is brought under the heel of martial and primal might. The earth itself heaves up and overthrows the Eladrin oppressor.
Now, in the year 302, fonts of arcane wisdom have dried up. The fey and the rituals associated with them are anathema. Only the clergy have access to rituals, and children born with fey blood are immediately killed to prevent contamination. Veiled arcane heretics wander in the wilderness, and are slain on sight by a group of primal enforcers known as the nk’bara. Prince Almarak, the Dragonborn son of a long line of paladins who have ruled the country since the chaos of the revolution, is a religious extremist who controls the populace through brute force. This is Ydria, Land of the Emerald Crown.
However, a group of dissidents have risen up. Though some fear the stories of days long past when magic bound the people into servitude, others question whether they have exchanged one tyranny for another. Can magic be used to serve the people? And what of the rumors of fey refugees in other lands uniting to take Ydria back?
It is up to you, brave adventurers, to decide the fate of the nation…
This is the recruitment thread for the D&D 4th Edition game known as The Residuum Revolution. I have played in three PbP games here on the threads, but this is my first foray into DMing in PbP. This is a homebrew campaign using 4th edition rules (and to some extent, universe). I am looking for:
Around five players, and especially those who love to post and are willing to check the threads at least once per day (in general).
Orokos for my character sheets and rolls, but I will deal with Myth Weavers/Invisible Castle if you really really want to.
A submission of one level 1 character per poster. Please do use inherent bonuses. Anything that is in the Character Builder goes, but if it’s too strange, I will PM you and ask you to start over. No dhampyr revenant warforged vampires, please.
And perhaps most importantly, a group that works together.
At least a paragraph of background information that will tie in to the story (or not if you want me to tie your character in for you D:)
Link to character sheet
Character pic if possible
Notes about character creation:
If you are playing a fey (eladrin, half-elf, elf, gnome, drow, etc.) or a magic-user (sorcerer, bard, swordmage, etc.) I will not rule your character out, but you will have a more challenging time playing the game. Please consider taking stealth or bluff if you play a fey or arcane character.
Finally, please do not feel like you must be constricted by your class type to be a member of one of the groups in the intro. I have no problem with you being a rebel, but please explain it in your background.
Submissions are due by Sunday, March 20th at 8:00 PM PST.
