Legends of the Heroes / Re: Shattered Isles
« Last post by phaedrusxy on May 19, 2024, 09:35:19 AM »
All kinds of stuff happened since I last posted for this game, then we abandoned this campaign for over a year but we're picking it up again. My memory is unfortunately not great... I was reusing plot elements from an amazing intrigue-based game that I'd played in online in a PbP on mythweavers. So my memories from that game and the one I recycled for my kids are kind of mashed together... lol.

I know they were investigating the death of a teenage girl that mysteriously appeared to have fallen off of or out of a the keep of a prominent family in the city. It was her home, and it turned out that she wasn't so nice. She and a couple other kids had bullied another girl in the past, and that girl had basically taken off on her supervillain arc and came back to murder them. She was a Tome Assassin NPC I made up. The PCs wound up confronting her at some point, I think, but she escaped and murdered another of the three kids. They were trying to protect the third and then that plot somehow led them down another one. (This is where my memory is really murky...).
I know the real plot is that a deepspawn outside the city is replacing prominent members of society with its clones. I think they stumbled onto this because one of the guards who was watching over the prominent third target of the assassin just happened to have been replaced, and the Mind Pirate PC stole his memories and learned of the plot. They didn't learn the exact nature of what is happening, only that he and the others involved are slavishly serving something they call "the mother". His memories of the mother were very vague and spotty and involved a very dark cavern, tentacles, pain and death. They did learn that this involves many prominent figures in the city being controlled/replaced (I can't remember if they know which).

They learned of a "party barge" for the elite that was about to leave the city that is piloted by a Captain Talon Zane. He's an NPC that had showed up earlier in the campaign, but had died. The current PCs did not witness his death, but had heard the rumors (one of them knew him). When he shows up again, they are confused and confront him but he brushes it off with some quip like "The rumors of my death are obviously greatly exaggerated". He says his current route takes him near the location they seek, and offers to take them. In reality, he is a deepspawn clone, and is taking all the party goers to the deepspawn to be eaten and replaced. :D That's where we left off. They had just set sail. We're planning to resume tonight with a couple of new PCs who will likely just be "party goers" on the barge (or hired guards, etc).

THE LEAGUE   Wizard Subclass)
Otiluke may be most famous as a Wizard, but he was also a master of bowling, and champion of the All Wizards Bowling League (which he insisted his students join).  Many of them questioned his reasoning that studying the sport of bowling made one a better Wizard.  At least they did until they were advanced enough to learn the Leagues secret techniques.  Techniques a jealous Otiluke was said to have created to challenge a mere barbarian!  Okay, so grated the Barbarian's stepdad was an Elemental who taught his kid magic, but still...

CHOP
At 2nd Level, whenever you successfully deal Force damage with a spell (including your Bowling Sphere listed below), the target must also make a Strength Saving Throw against your Spell Save DC or be knocked Prone.

DRIFT
At 6th Level, whenever you successfully deal Force damage with a spell (including your Bowling Sphere listed below), you may move the target 5 feet in any direction.

BOWLING SPHERE
At 10th Level, when you cast Resilient Sphere it has additional effects you can access.  Firstly, it and the enclosed creature hover a foot or so above the ground.  Secondly, you can move the sphere up to 30 feet in any direction once pr round as a Bonus Action.  Thirdly, if you move it into a creatures space, make a spell attack roll.  If it succeeds both the enclosed creature, and the target creature take 1d6 Force damage, plus another 1d6 Bludgeoning damage per 10 feet the sphere traveled this turn.

MEISTER BOWLER
At 14th Level, you may cast Resilient Sphere twice per day without using a Spell Slot or Material Component.

« Last post by bhu on May 17, 2024, 07:12:08 PM »
Where are we meeting? Still in town, or on the outskirts?

When you say the crowd begins to thin, do you mean the townsfolk watching on, or the ghouls as they leave?

How far is this reflection from Elizabeth? Is she standing near the ally? Is there anyone else around near her?

The square you've been meeting in.

The ghouls are beginning to thin out.

The alley is across the way from you, you think the person (if that's what it is), is about 60 feet or more away.

There are several men surrounding you, and several of the Haxan between you and the alley.

You see hundreds of ghouls (maybe more than hundreds), the Haxan you aren't sure.  There's a few dozen women, some of which look normal, some of which manifestly do NOT.  For the first hour all is well.  When the crowd begins to thin you notice a glint of light reflecting off something metal in an alleyway.

PANDA FOLK


   
"No, I don't do tricks.  Get off my lawn."

 Fluffy Pandas who can walk upright.  Despite their cuteness, they are a rough and tumble folk.  Many say their bamboo diet is what leads them to be grumpy curmudgeons.

PANDA FOLK SPECIES TRAITS

·   Favored Class: Crusader

STARTING AGE
 Adulthood: 14
 Barbarian, Rogue, Sorcerer: +1d4
 Bard, Fighter, Paladin, Ranger: +1d6
 Cleric, Druid, Monk, Wizard: +2d6

AGING EFFECTS
 Middle Age: 30
 Old: 45
 Venerable: 60
 Maximum Age: +2d10 years

HEIGHT AND WEIGHT
 Base Height: Male: 4'10"  Female: 4'5"
 Height Modifier: +2d10"
 Base Weight: Male: 150 lbs.   Female: 110 lbs.
 Weight Modifier: x(2d6) lbs.

PANDA CHARACTERS
 Pandas are pretty good beatsticks.  Which is good, because it's rare they have the patience for spellcraft.
 Adventuring Race: Pandas adventure for a variety of reasons, but most commonly because they're bored and need to start some crap.
 Character Development: Pandas aren't the most reflective or self-conscious lot.  They're pot stirrers.  And they have a reputation because of it.  Be aware of that reputation as you adventure.
 Character Names: Male: Aden, Ananda, Champo, Chodak, Daje, Jigme.  Female: Amala, Chomden, Gewa, Jamyang, Khon-Ma, Ngawang.  Surnames: Phurba, Rimshi, Soyang, Wangdu, Yudron, Zangmo.

ROLEPLAYING A PANDA
 People think of Pandas as wise, temperate floofs.  The floof part is right.  The wise and temperate bits...not so much.  Once they actually encounter Pandas, or someone else who has encountered Pandas, they learn your actual reputation of being trouble makers.
 Personality: You want what you want when you want it, and you want it NOW.   And damned be he that stands in your way!
 Behaviors: Pandas like to have fun, and party hard.  With the least excuse.  There's a reason many of them hang out with the Fey.
 Language: Pandas speak Furry and Common.  Many also learn Sylvan as well.

PANDA SOCIETY
 Pandas are solitary except for celebrations.  They prefer to be left to their own devices, but that doesn't work for getting wasted and into trouble.  You need an audience for that.
 Alignment : Most Pandas are Neutral.  They just want left alone.  Despite trying to be in everyone else's bidness.  Theirs is an interesting life.
 Lands : Pandas prefer a 'quiet', rural existence in the forest.
 Settlements : Given that they almost exclusively eat bamboo, the Pandas don't live anywhere it doesn't grow.
 Beliefs : Rabbit and the Nature Pantheon feature prominently.
 Relations: Pandas tend to be a bit stand-offish and grumbly.  They aren't people persons.

PANDA ADVENTURES
·   A strange fellow in robes has offered to teach you martial arts.  Unfortunately for him, you are stone drunk, with no memory of having offended the Fey a mere 12 hours ago.
·   A Sprite has stolen your bamboo pudding, causing you to go on a jagged tear to retrieve it.
·   You wake up to find out you have a powerful magical artifact, with no memory of what it is, why  you have it, or where you got it from.  You do quickly realize that there are plenty of people who want to take it from you though.

PANDA FOLK

FUSSY AND QUARRELSOME
The Panda Folk are anthropomorphic bears about the size of a particularly husky Orc.  They tend to be thought of as adorable goof balls, but that's because they keep to themselves.  When they show up drunk at the local Moon Festival, they are coming to party.  And Pandas party hard.  As more and more people experience the full force of a celebratory floof bear, their reputation has taken a hit.  No one likes a jerk, no matter how cute they are.

GIMME DAT!
Pandas are stubborn and mean until they let their hair down to have some fun.  In either case, it's best to stay out of their way.  Mostly so you don't accidentally get fallen on when they aren't paying attention.   They're genuinely difficult t truly befriend, but their loyalty is undying if you do.

TURTLE FOLK


   
"Behold the turtle.  He only makes progress when he sticks his neck out.  What kind of bigoted nonsense is that?  Get off my lawn."

 The Turtle Folk are adorable little turtle people about 3 feet tall.  AT least the Dragons of the Jester's Realm think so, as they have quickly adopted them as wards.

 Adventuring Race: Turtles usually go on adventures at the behest of their draconic masters, or out of dire need.

 Behaviors: Behavior varies quite a lot depending on who your benefactor is.
 Language:  Turtles speak Draconic and Scaly, and many learn Common as well.

TURTLE SOCIETY
 Turtles usually build individualistic cities near the lairs of their Draconic benefactors.
 Alignment : Most of the Turtle Folk are some variation of Neutral.  Their society is heavily influenced by Dragons, so the non-Neutral component of their Alignment varies with their Dragon Lord.
 Lands : Turtles live virtually everywhere.
 Settlements : Outcast Turtle Folk will settle somewhere they can hide, ow that they no longer have a Dracconic patron.
 Beliefs : Chkrr and Puddytat are popular Gods.
 Relations: Turtle Folk are fairly live and let live, but if you hate Dragons, you have an enemy in them as well.

YOUR BUM PAPER, MILORD
The Turtle Folk are anthropomorphic Turtle's about the size of Gnomes.  They were immediately adopted by various Dragons upon arriving at their new world, and their new patrons have shaped their society overall.  Some see the Dragons as Gawds.  Some see them as wealthy benefactors.  Some think the Dragons mean well, but are a tad delusional.

PETS?
They feel this way because the Dragons tend to delight in how 'adorable' the Turtles are.  Which makes some of them ask "Am I a friend?  An employee?  Am I a pet?"  The Dragons merely dismiss this, and tell them not to worry.  They also pointedly mention to ignore Old Drunk Fred, a Brown Dragon who raves about wiping the world clean for scalykind with his Turtle army one day.  He's quite the character, that Fred.  Taught the Turtle Folk the secret of gunpowder, which has the Gnomes all in a tizzy as heretofore they had a monopoly on the stuff.

"And lastly at you table we have Ned, Scion of Ba'al the Dragon."

"Howdy!"

"He's one of the few Dragon Shamans hereabouts!"

"Dragon Shaman?"

"Like Warlocks.  But for Dragons."

"I think I'd almost rather be a traditional Warlock.  Draconic politics are very complicated."

"They aren't that complicated.  Lord Ba'al hosts a three hour seminar on them every Sunday so we can stay abreast of the basics."

"Three hours?"
