The Blighting of Kroburrow
A plague of darkness has swept through the kingdom of Kroburrow and a call has gone out for the tribal leaders and their champions to meet at the Great Circle and discuss what can be done.
Who will answer the call?
Kroburrow has no government but instead is a land of tribes. There is a tribal council that will meet to discuss relations with the other kingdoms, but the rarely agree on anything. Power in Kroburrow is determined by strength and courage.
In the center of the plains of Kroburrow there is a large crater known as the Great Circle. This is the traditional meeting place of the Tribes. Violence is forbidden in the Great Circle. Camping in the Great Circle during times of tribal meetings is allowed, but no one is allowed to make their permanent home inside the circle.
, A forest dwelling tribe who seek answers from nature. Their leader is a Shifter named Lion.
, A warrior and hunter tribe who live in the plains. Their leader is a Minotaur named Running Bull.
, Also a plain dwelling tribe however unlike the Cherwok they are a peaceful people who are mostly vegetarians. Their leader is a Deva named Kavah.
, live near the coast and are known for their magical aptitude. Their leader is a Human named Denark.
These tribes have a diverse set of races they count as their members though it is also common to see sub-tribes of one race split off from the main. These sub-tribes still respect the authority of the Main Tribe elders in times of council, but otherwise operate with autonomy. They even have leaders and champions of their own.
This is a homebrew world that I have my IRL game set in. I have an Obsidian Portal Campaign Entry
that I will be fleshing out over time.
It is a PbP game.
One post per weekday required.
We will be using Invisible Castle
You will need to have an invisible castle account and the roll under a consistent character name and with the campaign name [D&D 4E] The Blighting of Kroburrow
This will be our IC and OOC thread (See Denada's game) so just try and keep the OOC stuff to spoiler tags.
Please PM with your Myth-Weaver Sheet location.
After three solid days of the tribal leaders meeting in the center tent of the elders the four tribal elders emerged from the large tent near the lowest part of the Great Circle. Then behind them came the leaders of the sub-tribes. After some formalities between the leaders they seemed to disperse and head back to their champions with a sense of purpose.
One by one the five heroes enter the Elder’s tent and stand silently before the council before Running Bull steps forward.
“A great blight has befallen the tribes. We elders have been in council for many days and hearing from many of your brother and sister tribes of how this blight has affected them and their neighbors. Several more of our brother and sister tribes have not come to the Great Circle and this too worries us.
We have heard tale of entire villages destroyed by its own tribesmen. They go mad and kill their families in their sleep. Others speak of a crushing sadness that leads entire camps to do nothing but sleep until they die of the deep hunger. The last tale we have heard these past few days is of a sickness that sweeps across a tribe’s lands and kills everything corn, horses, buffalo, and people.
In each of these places there is a common story. Somewhere in the village there is blighted mark, a place where the ground as gone cold and black. Those who have seen it say it is what death looks like.
You five have been selected for an important mission that will impact all the tribes of Kroburrow. You shall find what is causing this blight and put an end to it. You have been selected for your courage and skill.
From this day forward you will be each other’s tribe, brothers and sisters to one another.
From this day forward all tribes will recognize your authority as The Bone Eagle Clan.”
One by one the elders step forward and fasten to each the heroes right arm a hemp band with a small Eagle carved out of bone in the center.
Then Kavah high priestess of the Willoan steps forward with a formal greeting of her tribe,
“Children of the land we all are.
Brave Bone Eagles I commend your courage and ask that you begin your task by investigating one of my sister tribes, the Klen-oc, who did not arrive for our meeting. They are not dissenters nor have they ever missed a calling from me. I fear they may have been overcome by the blighting.
Their village is but a three days walk for champions such as you.”
Kavah hands you a map drawn on stretched cowhide.
You now can add a cowhide map to your inventory.
Also, You each now have
The Band of The Bone Eagle Clan
You know the location of every other member of The Bone Eagle Clan, within 20 yards no matter how far away from them you are, and if they are alive or dead.
Feel free to RP your interactions.
Once everyone has PM'd me their Myth-Weavers Sheet and posted a !READY we will move on.
