    Default OOC A Knot of Thorns Part 1 - Heroes are Coming

    Moving to here.
    78% of DM's started their first campaign in a tavern. If you're one of the 22% that didn't, copy and paste this into your signature.

    Where did you start yours?
    In the village where the heroes came from, with a kobold attack.

    I hope I'm not posting the wrong place...

    But is it too late to make a character? I've got something in me head but I haven't had the time to post it in the other thread? Is it here or there I should post what I got if there is still room?

    As I spend some time cooking my character, I'm moving away from Vitalist as the class I want to play; everything I come up with regarding them as a Vitalist ends up with the focal point being combat which I don't really want to do in a game that won't be combat focused. That said, I do have an idea that would work well in Eberron that wouldn't be combat focused. I just need confirmation that I can run evil necromancy spells without actually being evil or risking evilness, or permission to use White Necromancer from the community SRD.

    Sub and repost. Though i may make a different character if the focus won't be on combat, since a Cha 5 combat class will probably make me sad.

    Hey, I really want to have Acrobatics as a Class skill, and it really kind of fits the whole idea of my character. Can I, by any chance, exchange two or three of my other class skills for Acrobatics?

    Can't you just get it from a trait like 'Acrobat' or 'Reckless'?

    Fluff is mutable. There are traits which give the exact same benefit as one another, and yet have totally different fluff. Perhaps you could reflavour Reckless into something more to your liking.

    I suppose so... But it also seems that I'd need to get rid of Magical Lineage (which has taken the spot of my only non racial or Eberron specific trait), which would be an immense pain in the arse...

    I'm still not sure what 'Eberron specific' means in this context. Eberron doesn't have any official traits; And even the site linked in the big 16 only gives a few suggestions on reflavouring existing ones. So who knows? Maybe Reckless could fit in that slot.

    Hum... If I can reflavour Reckless to apply to Aerenalian elven Kensai fighting styles...

    This might just work! Thanks a lot!

    Okay, so with this being an intrigue campaign, I'm rebuilding Blade from a 2 hander soulknife to a Cutthroat Soulknife.

    Madame GM, would you perchance be willing to waive the alignment and special requirements from Assassin? It has really good flavor synergy with the Cutthroat Soulknife, even if I only dip for Death Attack (The classic where you talk for a while, then summon a weapon from nowhere and shank 'em). I would carry it through, but the PrC seems pretty lacking and it would take levels off of my mind blade.

    Here we are, an Aerelian elf from the Iskhandyar (Pale= Iska, Blade=Handyar) family, a young line that started with a powerful and once famous swordsage. This lil guy uses his ancestor's weapons, and old ceremonial clothing, striving to emulate his ancestor, and be even better than him.

    Fluff incoming.

    Ebberron is very liberal with alignments, and i don't see why every assassin has to be evil. It all depends what jobs they take. What I think of alignments in general is not very positive anyway

    darsk if you have a character idea not yet covered sure.

    "Ebberron specific" can be anything you find a way to refluff to for the world, including stuff that would be otherwise Golarion specific.

    And there will be combat, just not as focus. We'd do bad without combatants.

    Well, it's especially funny because of this

    And that's a full sized Warforged. He could have conceivably been a Warforged Scout - though unfortunately the site doesn't have it listed.

    Goody :) Looking forward to it. I just finalized my character sheet too
    (1D6)[2]

    Spoiler: Backstory
    Show
    Abandoned at the edges of the Eldeen Reaches, Thérèse was lucky to find a small village hidden in the forest. Despite the deep winter, the only person who would even speak to her was the miller at the remote end of the village. In exchange for apprenticeship, she was saved from starvation.
    During her first winter, she had little real contact with the other apprentices, much less anyone from the village. Only the miller would occasionally speak to her, but always in riddles she barely understood. Still, better alone and fed than alone and starving, she did her best to earn the right to stay.

    As spring came, the fields and orchards around the village grew rapidly and abundantly - but for some reason, all was delivered to the mill by the villagers, not just the wheat. Despite curious searches, she could just not account for the food that was delivered, it just seemed to vanish - what the inhabitants of the mill were eating and what the miller was giving back to the villagers just did not add up.

    Work was heavy in the mill until fall and Thérèse ended every day exhausted, while her fellow apprentices seemed to suffer little from the backbreaking work. At first that seemed to be due to their age and experience, but after a while she concluded that there was more to it - and dared to follow one of them as he went outside at night. The moon hung low over the shallow valley as she challenged him for an explanation and was plunged into twisted labyrinthine landscape where monsters crawled at the edge of her vision.

    After unaccountable time of panicking and madness, Thérèse managed to find her way back to the mill, where she was greeted by all its inhabitants and offered an explanation. The miller was a practitioner of dark magic and used it to boost the fertility of the land, at the cost of making all food poisonous unless processed in his mill. That magic also attracted dark creatures to prevent the villagers from leaving, and of course shielded him from any retribution.

    Intrigued, Thérèse took up the offer to learn that magic and was inducted into the Cult of the Buried Star. Her studies prospered until a band of adventurers came to the village to free it from her master, an attack which she barely escaped with her life.

    Oh almost forgot. I need a short "how to play this chacter" info from everyone, in case someone doesn't post for a while and needs to be done by someone else. Stuff your PC would never do, almost always does etc especially for battles. Can be added to later of course.
