Legends of the Heroes / Re: Shattered Isles
« Last post by phaedrusxy on Today at 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.

September 1776 / Re: Chapter 2: Haxan
« 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


   
Quote of Some Kind by a member of the r   ace!

 A general description of whatever the race is!

PANDA FOLK SPECIES TRAITS

·   False Beauty (Su): An Allura can assume the shape of any medium sized female humanoid.

It can assume a new form or return to its own as a standard action. Once lost the Allura cannot regain her False Beauty until she has fed.  So long as your False Beauty is up you can control what Alignment is revealed by spells cast on you such as Detect Evil or True Seeing.

They do not require food or water, and subsist purely on these emotions.  They may go without emotional feeding a similar number of days that other beings can go without water.  Any living creature within 60 feet that fails a Saving Throw against one of the Allura's Spell-Like Abilities (or any spell or effect that causes negative emotions) must succeed on a Willpower save or immediately take 1 point of Strength damage, 1 point of Constitution damage, and 1 point of Intelligence damage (Save DC is Charisma based).

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.

TURTLE FOLK SPECIES TRAITS
·   +2 Str, -2 Dex
·   Size Class: Small.  +1 Size Bonus to Armor Class and Attack Rolls. +4 Size Bonus to Hide Checks. -4 Size Penalty to Bull Rush, Grapple, Overrun, and Trip Checks. Lifting and Carrying Limits are half those of a Medium character.

·   Hold Breath (Ex): The Turtle can Hold it's breath for (8 times Constitution Modifier) rounds before it risks drowning or suffocation.
·   Shell (Ex): Your shell provides a +6 Natural Armor Bonus.  They may wear normal armor over it, but that armor is one and a half times the normal weight and cost.
·   Scent (Ex)

·   Turtles receive a +8 Racial Bonus to Swim Checks, and may always Take 10 on a Swim Check.  They may use the Run Action while swimming in a straight line.

 Height Modifier: +2d4"
 Base Weight: Male: 120 lbs.   Female: 85 lbs.
 Weight Modifier: x(2d4) lbs.

TURTLE CHARACTERS
 You aren't speedy, but you are tough.  If you can't get faster, make sure you get tougher.
 Adventuring Race: Turtles usually go on adventures at the behest of their draconic masters, or out of dire need.
 Character Development: You have a fairly poor dex, so load up o the armor if you can find magical armor that won't slow you any more than you already are.
 Character Names: Male: Franklin, Graham, Hudson, Jeremy, Milo, Preston, Royce, Wesley.  Female: Addison, Audrey, Edith, Hazel, Katie, Meadow, Piper, Willow.  Surnames: Allen, Baldridge, Barleycorn, Dunphy, Harman, Jessop, Upton, Wotherspoon.

ROLEPLAYING A TURTLE
 You were quickly adopted by Dragons upon entering the Jesters Realm, and they were very grateful for it.  In the old world, they were persecuted rather badly due to being slow and easy to chase. 
 Personality: Just because you're slow, people also tend to think you're slow witted.  And you do your best to just let them keep thinking that.  They'll never see you coming...
 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.

TURTLE ADVENTURES
·   His Lordship has been offended by the local Monkey Folk.  He has requested, and we quote, that you go "show those little (beeps) what for)."
·   Her Ladyship requests that you find a small treasure to be a wedding gift for her daughter.  When you reply you don't know of any local hordes not guarded by Dragons, she suggests you rob some Adventurers.
·   There is a Dragon Slayer in the forest.  He's very adamant about killing something, and you don't have the heart to tell him the local Dragons moved on after their divorce.  Also, he is crazy.
