    Default Kobold Run OOC

    Welcome to the First Centennial Kobold Run!



    Concept
    Spoiler
    Show
    This is a one time dungeon crawl from A to B. The concept is light hearted and the game will be fast paced. Four teams of PCs (a Red, a Blue, a Green team, and a Purple team/guy) will run through a pre-generated dungeon. They will begin at different points on different IC threads, but the final destination is the same.

    The game is over when one team manages to steal any treasure (even a single gold coin) from the dragon Xir's lair... or all the kolbolds die. Which ever comes first. Teams can bump into each other and interact. Once one team has won, the others immediately die. This game supports the fiction that posting time somehow relates to actual time in the game so it is in your best interest to post frequently. If one team member is a liability because they are aren't posting, the others may slay the slow poke by popular vote. Now that
    EL will be high. Kobolds will die horrible entertaining deaths.


    Story
    Spoiler
    Show
    XIR the ancient and terrifying red dragon of Mount Xir (Xir has an ego) has commanded his Kobold servants to test out his new security system. To do this he has devised a sadistic sporting event which his devote underlings will watch with joy from super sized crystal balls. There are three entrances to the caves of Mount Xir. Each of them leads to the great dragon's lair far below. Xir has promised riches beyond your wildest dreams and an honored position as his personal servants (very appealing in kobold culture) to the team that successfully battles their way through the dungeon to Xir's treasure room and manages to steal a single gold coin from his munificence. You have been selected. Victory means ever lasting glory. Failure means death for you and your family and shame everlasting.


    Team Roster

    House Rules
    Spoiler
    Show
    • Block Initiative: Players declare actions in any order, the DM resolves them in order of initiative. The Monsters go. Rinse, wash, repeat.
    • Passive rolls: There is no "roll ownership" in my games. I will take the liberty of rolling opposed checks, saves, and initiative for you. This works both ways. You are invited to roll for the monsters after attempting a grapple or casting a spell. I will add the modifier afterwards.
    • Retroactive Ruling: I have no qualms about altering the history of the game within a period of one round. If something missed and should have hit, then we'll go back and change it. After the round passes the mistake is adopted as gospel truth. Hopefully we won't have too many, but 3.5 can get complicated.
    • Diplomacy will not work as defined in the PHB and will be practically worthless. This is not a social game. I advise you to avoid bluff too. You may dump Charisma, but there will be at least one obstacle with a Charisma drain ability.
    • Resting represents a significant delay. If your team decides to rest, you may not post for one week. Alternatively, if all teams agree to rest at the same time, then no waiting period is necessary
    • We will have one OCC thread and three IC threads. Players may view the other team's progress. This is supported IC by a scrying device given to you team by Xir. Don't lose it!


    Red Team IC Thread
    Blue Team IC Thread
    Green Team IC Thread
    Purple Team IC Thread

    Please speak in a shade of your team colour IC or no colour at all. Fonts work great if you are looking to fluff up your speech.

    White Eyes, reporting for duty!

    Is it weird that I'm actually somewhat optimistic about this?

    EDIT: I believe you mean "OOC."

    Atik! Reporting in... with my pets, a-aha-ahahahahahaha.

    Edit: I just realized, the level-7 team has an even larger, hidden advantage - there's only two of them to post, so they're going to get faster responses / progress. Gotta steamroll this, I guess...

    I think the fact that the Green Team only had 7 was the reason for the creation of Purple Team...

    Actually, it was because the last person to apply to the green team only made one character. The original post said 6-8 greenies anyway.

    Ah. Well. I simply didn't have an idea for another character... I'd love to make a Factotum, but they're not in the source list. >:? oh well.

    Factotum is in Dungeonscape!!! FACEPALM! DOH!
    That was an oversight. If you can whip it up fast then it's a yes. No "Font of inspiration" feat. But fast. We're pretty much ready to go.

    Sorry everyone that would have made a factotum.

    I was going to make a Factotum, but Aury worked much better as a Swashbuckler

    Reported in and ready to go, contingent on Factotum-y assistance. I was going to offer to quickly build a Bard, but I'm not sure I want to be responsible for three characters

    I thought of whipping up a bard as well. But I couldn't think of a name at the time. Cassius would have done though.

    Green team is NOT going into that dungeon with fewer than 8 people. The only reason we'd win this is because our numbers can sustain a few losses.

    If we haven't started tomorrow afternoon I'll probably whip a bard up after school. If no one else has thrown in the 8th green. For now... Sleep.

    I'm here, and since this is primarily for giggles I've decided to run w/ the swordsage. Who needs to fight magic when we can run away from it. Right? Right?!

    EDIT: Is DMG II allowed for magic items?

    You would actually have to complete a bonding ritual in the dungeon for one of the bonded items. Other than that, yes.

    I'm afraid not. I can't handle another player Cuthalion, and we're pretty much ready to go. If this works out well and I do it again I'll give you first dibs though. Okay?

    Told you I'd make a factotum.

    K'gak is a good friend of Atik's - in fact, they grew up together, pushed together by the fact that both of them were Dragonwrought, though from different ancestors. Throughout the over-a-century that the two have been together, Atik tamed his beasts, while K'gak spent his years studying and working to apply his odd selections of knowledge to the world, including a few minor tricks with spells.

    He ventures out now only at the behest of Atik - the kobold wanted someone familiar on the journey with him - and with a grim realization. They were all going to die. And as a result, he may as well die with his best friend, and his sole companion through the years.
