View Full Version : Border Wars [OOC Thread]

OOC Thread, please choose speaking colors and repost character sheets.

You find yourself in the border city of Orlinian, just inside the nation of Leeran, a small merchant republic that borders three larger nations. These larger nations use Leeran as part bargaining chip, part pawn in their political games.

The border near Orlinian is shared with Castillara, a large Empire ruled by an iron-fisted monarch. Castillara has long been at war with another neighbor of Leeran, Navran, a republic that usually supports and protects Leeran. The third neighbor, Araus, is a kingdom that has acted opportunistically in the past, siding with either Navran or Castillara, depending on the circumstances.

Recently, there have been reports coming from the border regions of strange creatures harassing the troops stationed on the border forts. When the troops investigated, they were able to find nothing out of the ordinary, save slain men and damaged fortifications. Being unable to spare the manpower from the forts to investigate fully, the Colonel in charge of the area has hired mercenaries (you) to conduct a thorough examination of the attacks and find what has caused them. Because of the already high level of tension on the border, you have been told to stay on this side of the border and not cross into Castillarian territory. If you do cross over, you will be disavowed, and nobody will be coming to your rescue.

EDIT: Sorry tigerusthegreat, I'm trying to upload a combat tracker through Google Docs (for this game and the other one you just took over), but it's not agreeing with me either. Anyone else able to upload/share files right now?

Hi guys.
Viola enjoys the smooth elegance of her DarkRed accent, and vants to suck your blud.

I recently remade her as a hybrid rogue / vampire, with a ki focus and short sword.
Her sheet is linked right here (http://www.myth-weavers.com/sheetview.php?sheetid=322940)

Leanna (our resident Eladrin Assault Swordmage) speaks with a delicate french accent and a thick DarkGreen brogue.

You can find her sheet here. (http://www.carpedm.name/profiler/view.php?id=533)

So, has Willian not reported in? He usually takes awhile in between posts, but are we waiting for him, or what?

2012-11-12, 11:36 AM
He responded to my PM saying he was in, but I haven't heard from him since. I'll send another message, see if I can catch him.

Well it's been a week and no answer from snake obsidian. That leaves us with four players: two defenders, a leader, and a striker. Certainly a workable party, but I'm thinking we may want to recruit one or two more players to join. We can still get the game moving, and introduce any other PCs down the road. Thoughts?

Sorry tigerusthegreat, I thought we were ready to go. Are you still up for running the game?

2012-11-24, 09:14 PM
How much do we really need a controller, though?

But if anyone wants a new player, I have no problem with it.

2012-12-06, 12:53 PM
I guess this game is officially dead in the water. No word from the DM in weeks (in this game or another of his I was in), never heard back from snake obsidian.

Oh well, thanks to you guys for a great game, hopefully we'll get a chance to play again sometime.

Bugbear out!

Hey guys, one last offer I want to make before we call this group dead, because you guys are some of the cooler people I've met on this board -
Next semester I'm working full time instead of taking college courses, so I'll have guaranteed free weekends with no homework to worry about. Would you guys be up for a live 4e game played through www.roll20.net ? Depending on the time zones and busy schedules involved I think it might be doable.


2012-12-06, 01:03 PM
Sure, I'd love to give it a try! Drop me a line when you want to start putting something together. FWIW, I live in Alberta, Canada, so Mountain Standard Time (GMT -7) for scheduling.

2012-12-06, 03:19 PM
I can't really do live games, because my schedule changes week-to-week and it is difficult even on a day off to get more than thirty minutes to myself -- but don't let that discourage you! Feel free to recruit a couple more people and set it up.

I've had fun with you guys <3

2012-12-08, 01:19 AM
I have no problem trying.
