    Default [OOC] Adventures in the Heartlands (4E)

    Welcome, Players!
    Character Player Race/Class Role
    Azktor Azktor Half Orc Paladin Defender
    Ogun Many-Arrows Son_of_Meepo Half Orc Warlord Leader
    Skadi Neith MiketheMountain Half Orc Hunter Controller
    Tak Irish Musician Half Orc Slayer Striker
    Wind Ridai Human Thief Striker

    Come on in and get familiar.

    I won't be posting on the IC until the 14th so keep it on this board for now. Here is some input I would like from you.

    A)I would like you to list 4 magic items you wish your character had level 1-3:
    1 weapon/implement
    1 armor/protection
    2 others

    B) Post a picture or token you would like to use on the map. If you can't find or afford one, one will be provided for you. EDIT: And a speech color. I use black.

    C) What is the personality of your character? Not looking for your innermost motivations, just their basic disposition.

    D) What kind of game are you looking for?


    A little about my gaming style.
    I like to run a fun, easy going game.
    Your character may get bloodied or even unconscious but I'm not looking to wipe you out, just challenge you. You guys have a lot of healing at your disposal so expect to use it.
    I love free thinking, wild ideas. Think movie moves, what would the hero do? If you want to try it, ask.
    Banter during combat is good.
    Teamwork is a must.
    Please be kind, post often. Even out of battle I post fairly regularly. I hope you do, too. Beware the notification system. It goes on the blink from time to time. Get in the habit of peeking at threads that haven't updated in a while.

    I'm looking forward to some fun.

    See you on Wednesday.

    Two leaders? That should be something to watch.

    Here's Sarvin and his picture for the map. I'll claim Red for his speech.

    EDIT: As for the items I would like...

    Weapon
    Subtle Triple-Headed Flail +1

    Armor
    Hide Armor of Resistance +1

    Other
    Cloak of Resistance +1
    Shield of the Guardian +2

    Personality

    Growing up the ward of an elven marshall, Sarvin is a very business-like and forthright individual. As much as he has a good heart to match his strategic mind and a fondness for the underdog, the tiefling does not suffer fools and shirkers. "The gods have put you on this earth for a reason," he says with a snap to his tone. "It's up to you to find it, not lay about with your hands on your arse."

    Game I'm Looking For
    Spoiler
    Show
    A mix of roleplay and combat.

    All right, responding your questions:

    A) I would like you to list 4 magic items you wish your character had level 1-3:
    Weapon: +1 Fullblade Bloodclaw (lvl 2 AV)
    Armor: +1 Meliorating Plate (lvl 3 AV)
    Other 1: +1 Badge of the Berserker (lvl 2 AV2)
    Other 2: Siberys Shard of Radiance (lvl 3 EPG)

    B) Post a picture or token you would like to use on the map. If you can't find or afford one, one will be provided for you. EDIT: And a speech color. I use black.
    Appearence posted down, speech color I will use BoldSeaGreen and thinking color ItalicSeaGreen and for whispers UnderlineSeaGreen. I would also like to request DarkRed for Zau'Nix, if that is ok.

    Tokens:

    Zau'nix:

    Bloodied:

    C) What is the personality of your character? Not looking for your innermost motivations, just their basic disposition.
    To get stronger, to form alliances and to get richer. Basically he want to have more power. And for personality I would say the 2 most stronger aspect of Azktor are his seriousness and his thirst for power, but he is also very brave and a bit ruthless with his words/actions.

    D) What kind of game are you looking for?
    A game with challenge - expecially battles, but also roleplay challenge. I want a game that my character can grow and maybe later fulfill his purpose on the game world (kill Skulkan the Red-Axe and become the tribal leader of Orsi'kur)

    Azktor the Black-Blade

    Appearence & Personality:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Azktor: He is a huge half-orc, really strong. With slightly green skin and long gray hair. He is always wearing a plate armor and is always ready for a fight. Azktor is serious half-orc he is used to do things his way and sometimes he seem a bit ruthless, but that is just because he know no better. They only taught him one thing in his tribe: to fight. But he is a not a bad half-orc and many times he will show some unespect kindness. He is also practical, active, blood-thirsty, lonely and brave.


    Zau'nix: he is not a very friendly blink dog, but he respects Azktor comands and even is fond of him.

    Background:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Azktor is from a huge tribe called Orsi'kur of savage humans and half-orcs. In that tribe the Paladins are always the leaders, but only two or three in a generation are born with the power to become a Paladin, Azktor was one of them and because of that he was separated from his family at a young age to be trained. After years of hard training that led him to his limits to survive, Azktor was ready. When he turned 20, he and two other training partners were put to the test, they would have to fight until death to find out who would be the new successor after the death of the current leader, Skulkan the Red-Axe a huge half-orc with that have a red axe always in his hand.

    The three were placed in an arena with three weapons for them to choose: a red Gouge, a black Fullblade and a golden Executioner Axe. Azktor ran and grabbed the nearest weapon, the black Fullblade, and began to struggle with his opponents. For a time there was a big fight in deadlock, because all of them had the same amount of training. However Azktor emerged victorious from this battle, but ended the fight with a huge amount of injuries. Skulkan the Red-Axe called Azktor and said "From now on you will be called Azktor the Black-Blade. Now leave our tribe straightaway! And just return the day of my death...or the day that you get to kill me HAHAHA!" Skulkan ordered all the guards take him to the limit of the tribe and leave him with nothing beyond the black sword and said that if he returned he would be killed.

    For one year Azktor wandered around the world and recovered his strength and began to plan a way to kill Skulkan. During this time Azktor saved the life of a huge black fey dog, the dog started to follow him from that day foward, Azktor called him Zau'nix and started to enjoy his company while traveling.

    Notes: the Paladins of Orsi'kur are not the most religious out there but they really respect Tempus and sometimes they say a few words to him before and after a battle.

    Hi everyone, here is the link to Harken. I think I may get rid of grasping claws for a long range attack, since it looks like we have a good bit of melee. Any thoughts on that?

    Here is Harken:

    Harken

    His background might be the most oddball one I have ever written. I usually stick to simple backgrounds. His is open ended at least. I didn't like the idea of him looking like an animal when he is in his morphed form, so he will look more like a avatar of nature, barkskin, feral, and more tree like than animal.

    Also, if anyone has any suggestions for finding a good picture that would be welcome.

    I would like to reserve Blue as my color. I don't think it is too close to seagreen.

    A.) armor of sudden recover (hide)(AV2 page 6)
    staff of ruin (AV pg 106)
    amulet of mental resolve (AV pg 148)
    feyleaf sandals (AV pg 129)

    B.) Just give me a default druid looking one. I can't find any I like.

    C.) Harken is motivated to explore the world he didn't see as a child. He doesn't care much to explore cities or urban areas but rather natural settings and all the things in them: run down dungeons, caves, etc. He is fiercely loyal despite his aloof nature. If he signs on for some kind of responsibility he will see it through. He does not like unwarranted killing of animals unless it serves some purpose or in self defense.

    His personality, background, etc are on his page linked.

    D.) I personnally like combat oriented dungeons with some puzzles, good rp, and a great story line.

    Orion Three

    Desired Implement +1 impeding ki focus
    Desired Armor +1 breaching leather armor
    Desired Item 1 Sibley's dragonshard of radiance
    Desired Item 2 +1 Badge of the Berserker

    As for token, I am fine with anything.

    What drives Orion is a will to survive. He wants to know who he is any why he was made. To do that he needs to live and will do just about anything to stay alive.

    Edited my first post here, I will put later the itens and the tokens. Btw, wich size are going to be the tonkens? I was thinking in something really simple, like: a SeaGreen token with a black sword in the middle for Azktor and for Zau'nix a DarkRed token with fang(s) in the middle.

    I finally decided to go with a Bard, I'm just not sure if I'm gonna make a "normal" Bard or multi-multi-multi-multiclass him to get as many skills I can. If I go for multiclass option I would have to have all stats at 13, and that will not make him effective. Alternatively, I can skip Divine and Primal classes, so I can at least neglect Wisdom. I will probably skip Intelligence, since I already have Arcana as trained skill. I need to think some more.

    Sorry for double post, but does tactical presence and others warlords buffs stack? That will make really high bonuses if they do stack.

    "If multiple warlord allies who have this class feature can see the ally, he or she gains the bonus from only one of them (the ally’s choice)."(from the rules regarding Tactical Presence)

    That same ruling will apply to Combat Leader benefits.You can only follow the beat of one drum (at a time).

    That means me and Clay will take turns. Wait, since we're together, I figure I can change Combat Leader to Canny Leader. A bit more Perception never helps.

    Yeah, that would be really good , also Battlefront Leader seens pretty cool as well.

    True, the "no stack" ruling will apply to any two Command Presences or same Combat Leader aspects, but different Combat Leader aspects will "stack".

    Thanks for the heads-up, Lord and Azktor. Switched for Insightful Presence and Canny Leader.

    Hey, this also means me and Clay could share backgrounds. Like given how Sarvin's older, he could technically be Ash's upperclassman. Both are still learning, but both are learning to take cues from each other.

    Sorry if I'm over the line, but may i suggest Bravura Presence instead? Extra Attack or move after AP spend seen a bit better then defenses.

    Edited my last post. I meant 'WaffleLord' when I said 'Clay'.

    And that's a good suggestion, Azktor. Sarvin is the type to try and finish things fast.

    But it is sorta risky if you miss...
