    Default Jacob's Crossing Ch.1

    Okay, so far as character creation.

    Full HP at lvl 1 (given)

    34 point buy for your stat block
    All stats start at 8
    A one point to one stat boost ratio is in effect till 14
    15 and 16 require two points each
    17 and 18 each require three points
    no beginning stat over 18
    Iíd say apply racial bonuses and penalties after you're done buying, but there wonít be any

    Human lvl 1, starting age around 12-14 (donít worry, there will soon be some time skips)

    No beginning classes that would be very very odd in a small village, aka dragon fire disciple, warlock, paladin etc. Think small here. If you really want to be a class we can always ret con your class levels after the time skip. If you want to play fighter pst me, I have some house rules about it (in its favor)

    Remember, youíve lived in a small village your entire lives, arrange you skill points accordingly. Knowledge nobility is in all likelihood, not a good choice.

    In order to make up for the moderately low magic and low start and restrictions and all: There will be leveling feats given every other level, that is, every odd level.
    And ability score adjustment increases every three, not 4.

    to do dice rolls, type [roll.]2d6+4[/roll.] only without the extra ..... and whatever dice and bonus or penalty. It looks like
    (2d6+4)[10]

    In Character "IC" should always be in bold. To use the colors (for speech and what not) type [color="RED".]Jim is red[/color.] again without the extra .... It looks like, Jim is red

    OOC (out of character) is anything not in bold.

    OKAY, welp I hope this helps. Just post a ready message when your char is done and weíre ready to go. My next post will be a short history of the village, so you can begin to sketch out your (short) past.

    Hmm, Nash wakes up in the morning. He does his normal morning routine of meticulously checking all the plants in his room (of which there are many).

    Ok, a couple more house rules

    crits do not automatically mean success, just add ten to the roll. This should mean success in all but the most extenuating circumstances.
    ex: to hit in melee (+6) 1d20(20)+6 = 36
    In order to confirm crits, you have to roll 1d20 plus the same bonuses from the attack that crited, +6 in this case, you have to meet or beat the AC again to do double damage, if you fail to do so, you still hit (if ur crit hits a 36 AC), but no double damage.

    the same applies to natural 1s, just subtract ten from your bonusses.
    ex: knowledge arcana (+5) 1d20(1)+5 = -5

    reflex saves, if someone is adjacent to you and you succeed your save, you may still take the full damage to prevent all damage to that person. If you're fast enough to dodge, you're fast enough to shield someone or push them out of the way. It will come in handy when there's someone badly hurt or weak that you want to protect.

    The small town of Jacobís Crossing is known jokingly to outsiders as the last bastion of civilization. Located in the far most western part of Islar, the only peoples left further west are the ever closed Dwarven lands and to the south, the wild bands of humans who pledge allegiance to no man.

    There are a few scant villages further west, but none of which can call themselves a proper town. Just over 200 people claim residence in Jacobís Crossing proper, with probably another 150 farmers in the surrounding area who visit town regularly to trade and relax at one of two taverns the town boasts.

    Currently, preparations are under way for the Festival of Blossoms and Leaves. A celebration of rejuvenation that the Spring season always brings, filled with cakes and music and dancing, the festival usually lasts one day well into the next morning. This year is particularly tense though. The past two years has seen the worst drought in current memory, not one crop was able to flourish in the farmerís fields these past two growing seasons. With cellars running low on food, already the spring season is uncharacteristically warm, the downwash from the mountains that was expected to replenish many drying brooks and creeks has not come. Even the almost tropical eastern parts of Islar are beginning to feel the presence of the drought, in their fields and in their bellies.

    This has put more than one frown on the faces of the townfolk.

    But still the people put their heads down and push forward, having faith that the Goddess will see them through.

    So soon after the war with Yetherach a mere decade ago, which many say behind closed doors and under their breath broke the back of once proud Islar, this drought has done nothing to lift the spirits of the people.

    Whatís more, across the River of the Sun, which many now simply call the Black River, the lands of Yetherach are seen to be verdant and blooming where once their lands were cold and unforgiving to farmers and their crops. Many now blame the drought on those heretics.

    The black ships of Yetherach patrol that river daily nowadays, their blood-red sails raised in defiance. The Jewel of the Sun, the great city Phaerelas, now lies in ruins as the final tomb for the royal family in the far east, the great wall that surronded the city now crombling into the river. You can still see the Tower half-standing from this side of the shore. The once magnificent capital of Islar, said to make even dwarven stonemasons shed a tear at its beauty, was sacked in the war, and everyone in it murdered who could not escape quickly enough from the armies of the Cult of the Great Herald, who returned to seek their vengeance on those who exiled and persecuted them, almost to the point of genocide.

    But they returned nearly a hundred years later to deal a fell blow against their very ancestors. Led by an entity so frightening, he was thought to be the dark and powerful Great Herald himself. He was simply known as the Shadowman by Islarites, rumored to be called the Dark Lord by the Yetherans. He led a force that was once thought to number in the hundreds in legion after legion, nearly 14 thousand, by estimations. Where all these troops came from it is difficult to say, but there were rumors of orcs, ogres and even giants during the war fighting under the Dark Lordís banner.

    It took everything Islar had to push the invaders back across the River of the Sun. It would not have even been possible if it were not for the timely disappearance of the Shadowman at the critical stages of the conflict. No one knows where he went or what happened, joyful at the time for his absence, now he is a nervous shadow at the edge of sight in the minds of the people.

    Now Islar is held together by a bickering council of Lords and Ladies who call themselves the Order of Stewards. They barely hold on to the reigns of leadership, the only thing preventing a complete splintering and a plunge into utter chaos is the threat of invasion from the north, still thought to be a great threat. The Order resides in the city of Reaul, a military stronghold of unsurpassed worth near the Black River in the middle of the country.


    one more to be coming up, intro into the here and now.

    But all that is a common everyday wear on the people of Islar, most have learned to swallow the bitter bile of historyís recent happenings. There is still hope. For ten years now Yehterach has sat as a festering sore, yes, but a stagnant sore. No major conflict has arisen except for the expected border skirmishes. And the small, yet powerful island nation of Hurriae still firmly holds the sea, preventing any hopes of an oceanic invasion force from Yetherach. Strong allies during the war and after the war, The Sky Lords have espoused undying friendship to the people of Islar and seem to have made good on their word, providing much needed foodstuffs from their vast fisheries and unparalleled information from their spy network and scrying.

    Things hang in a tenuous balance nowadays.

    But thatís that, you have work to do today.

    The day begins with Darkfalleís Character waking up in the Silver Ale, the tavern his parentís own. Dedric and Seriae (Characterís last name) make a formidable combo, the shrewd business man behind the counter and the enchanting lady onstage, keeping people entertained.

    They run a successful business, but with their raven black hair and light colored eyes, itís obvious that theyíre outsiders. And for that their business suffers a little bit. Most Townsfolk too stubborn prefer the Bubbling Brook tavern, a local staple until Dedric and his wife moved into town. He hears his mother calling for him from the kitchen.

    Nash wakes up in his small room to the familiar smell of herbs and plant life. He hears downstairs the rustling of the front door and the familiar step boom step boom of Granny Dodara and her walking staff. Obviously, she was up late last night helping someone in the town.

    An orphan since his mother died giving birth to him, Nash has lived with Old Granny, who served as his midwife, since he was born. He doesnít know much at all about his family other than that his older brother disappeared one day and when his father went to go look for him, his wife newly with child, he was found dead by a merchant caravan. The brother was never found. His mother just gave up on living after that. The pregnancy was too much for her.

    Nooblarís Character wakes up to the sharp bark of his fatherís voice calling him from downstairs. ďGet down here son! The horses need groomed!Ē His father is one of three prominent horse breeders in the area, and when Nooblarís Character isnít shucking hay or cleaning stalls, heís racing his fatherís horses in order to prove his familyís horses are the best. Not so much by his choice of course, more of his fatherís wishes than anything.

    He yawns sleepily, already trying to figure out a way to cut out on work early. Maybe head down to the Silver Ale, where he spends as many afternoons as possible, listening to Dedric and Seriae spin tales of the outside world and all the adventure that awaits out there. Maybe Darfalleís Character would be up for some exploration today.


    alright, ball's in your court.

    Aidan sits up sleepily rubbing at his eyes. He swings his legs off his bed and grabs a shirt off the floor--he rarely put his clothes away at night, unless it was a costume--and pulls it on. He goes to pull on the pants from yesterday, then realizes they aren't there, frowning he turns to yell out the door to his mother, then he remembers.

    Yesterday he and Devron had been out by the old ruins, and Devron had found that stupid dagger, rusted thing that it was. Aidan was sure he would've recognized it if it were magical, so it must not be, despite Devron's claims. In any case, the two of them had, had to run to get back to town in time for dinner, Devron's old man probably would've beaten him if they hadn't. Aidan had tripped and gotten his pants pretty dirty, his mother must've washed them overnight, or was doing so now.

    Aidan pulled on a pair of clean pants from his dresser and starts to head for the kitchen. Coming Mom! What's for breakfast?

    Nash calls out to Granny Dodara:Granny how are you! You didn't get enough sleep last night did you? You shouldn't be doing that. He then proceeds downstairs to see his beloved Granny.

    On a side note, this is a rather tragic past. That is cool though. Fun times to be had.

    Devron sighs heavily as he shrugs into a shirt. Another dismal morning of tending the horses was all he had to look forward to. What made things worse was he still hurt from the lashing his father gave him the day before. Although thinking back on it, the look on that stuffy merchants face when he fell off his newly greased saddle was more then enough to make up for it. He tucks the old dagger he had found out in the wilds into his belt. He was dead certain that it was some magical device of ancient times. His friends laughed at him about it saying it was just a rusty knife, but that didn't waver him one bit.

    He trudges down the stairs past his glowering father and heads out to the stables. As customary he attends his favorite horse Pheran first. The chestnut brown stallion and he had many racing victories together. Those days were gone however, as his father insisted Pheran was to old for racing anymore. As he does nearly every morning, Devron thinks about asking his father to give him the horse. But, just like every other morning the fear of what the answer might be holds his tongue. He gives Pheran a final rubdown then settles into the normal morning grind, waiting for the first opportunity to slip out from his father's watchful eye.

    Sorry guys, i don't get off of work till 4:30 everydoay. Just got settled in at home.

    Oh btw Darkfalle, the other feat is force of personality

    Aidan

    "I need your help in the kitchen son. We have cooking to do for our guests today." Seriae calls out as you tromp down the stairs. "What did you get up to yesterday? Your pants were filthy! You could smell them from down the stairs!" He laughs, musing your hair as you walk by.

    The kitchen is a small but organized afair behind the bar. You can already see your father sitting by the table, leaning and cutting up some skimpy onions. "Morning son" he says, nodding and smiling.

    Your mother calls out how many flatbreads she wants made up and warns you not to waste a grain. You find all of the supplies exept for the sugar, which gives your bread a nice sweet taste. As you ask your mother where it is, a sour and terse look comes over her face, There is no more." she says softly.

    Nash

    Granny sighs heavily as she rests herself in her favorite chair by the now cold fireplace. You stop sudenly, she looks so old just now, so old. Older than you could ever remember. And like a dark shadow in your mind, the thought comes to you that Granny may be Moving On soon. You shudder, quickly rejecting the thought.

    "Oh dearie, the Swansein's girl? She's not looking well at all. The Wet Lung disease is wasting the poor thing away. If only I had more Huri'ns Bloom! Blast it all, I ran out months ago.

    ...

    But I doubt any is blooming now, in this heat.
    She sighs. And I really don't have the energy to look for it. IF you see any, in the forest, bring it back here right away. But tend to your plants first. They must last the village for medical supplies... To bad Hurin's Blossom is so cursedly picky about living in the wild.

    Devron

    After a stern flick to the back of the head, you make your way outside. The stalls are the same, as they always are. Pheran perks up at your entrance and soon after the other twenty or so horses become animated at your arival. You waork for then next couple hours making sure all are fed and watered. Your father tells you which horses need to be put out to pasture. He tells you to watch them while he goes to 'do the books'. You know full well he means to hit the bottle, the perfect time to slip away.

    You later head into the house for a quick bite after your father has gone back inside. Your mother is there, Tiesa, vapid and not quite all there as usual. She barely mutters good morning to you. You scarf down some grub and head back out to the pasture. You still have to wait for another hour until you can be sure your father will be fast asleep.

    You're dying to take that dagger to Granny Dodara. Everyone knows she is a cojurer of great skill.

    Finally, you feel it's safe to make your get away.

    Knowing his father will be more interested in his rum then in him, Devron decides to sneak away from the house and head for Granny Dodara's. On the way out he grabs his trusty bow and arrows just in case his friends are able to escape their parents and are up for some exploration. After all, he figures to himself, who knows what other magic trinkets or treasure he could find. (move silent +6)

    Aidan sighs, It's getting bad isn't it? then starts preparing the ingredients for making the bread.

    After finishing his morning chores--breadmaking included--Aidan heads out to the common room to see if there's anybody new to talk to, maybe some of the merchants for the festival will have started arriving. It's always interesting to hear their stories so he can use them himself later.

    Devron

    It's about a ten minute jog into town from the farmhouse. You don't see anything untoward except for two seperate merchant caravans heading into town, one right after the other, no doubt filled with supplies for the festival in two days time. A couple of the gaurds glance a little perturbed at your weaponry, but none take it further than that. A couple wave at you. Most just ignore you.

    On the main street you see the beginnings of the day at work, men and women opening shop and cleaning house. As you stroll in the direction of Granny Dodara's a couple of side streets later you suddenly see Master Twindelore ride out of the front door of his tailoring shop, The Wispy Needle, the sign painted in gaudy red and gold next to the door. He's a standard fixture in the town, but most outsiders find him extremely odd. Being a gnome, Master Twindelore stands head and shoulders below every man in town. He is thought to be very tall amongst his people, but that doesn't satisfy him, oh no sir. The little gnome spends his waking hours mounted on a miniature horse, no bigger than a large dog, in order to see eye to eye with those "gangly humans" around him. It's purportedly a rare trade from some dwarves he got friendly with. It's been years since anyone can remember seeing Master Twindelore off his horse save to eat or drink. Being a very well trained little horse, Snuffles does not debase his good name by leaving little presents indoors, so most of the townsfolk don't seem to mind.

    Master Twindelore spots you and smiles and waves in your direction, dressed today in bright blue and cream silks. He trots over to you as you meet in the middle of the road.
    "Ahh, just the strapping young lad I wanted to see! How are you m'boy! My dear young man, I am in a bit of a tizzy. You see my precious Violet has gone and disappeared! Oh woe is me! I'm offering one whole gold piece to the clever investigator who can track her down and bring her home!" Snuffles snorts. Violet is a fixture inside of The Wispy Needle, a long haired white cat said to be a gift from an ambassador of Hurriae. Despite the lazy creature lounging about all day, Master Twindelore's creations are always spotless.

    Without even waiting for an answer. Snuffles prances off in the direction of Larkin Waerii, another youg man from the village, his father's a blacksmith. You shake your head. Violet is always running off about twice every week. No wonder, living with that crackpot. You chuckle to yourself under your breath.

    Aidan

    You poke your head into the common room, but no visitors have arived yet. It's too early in the moring, and having no guests stay the night it leaves the Silver Ale eerily quiet. You wait the next hour or so for the bread to finish baking and help prepare some skimpy meat and spring greens to be cooked for lunch today.

    "Now go in the common room and practice on the lute. I'll get the bread when it's done. You most definitely need to improve your finger dexterity in order to play better. I don't think we will attract much business with the sounds of a cat getting stepped on." You mother laughs, giving you a sly wink. Your father bursts out in full laughter his torso shaking with mirth. You grumble, it's not your fault you only just started learning to play a week ago.

    But you sigh and clean off your hands. You head to the back of the common room and lift the panel on the stage floor concelaing all the instruments and juggling balls and... well all sorts of things really, and pull out the lute case. You tune it easily enough, but now comes the hard part, you pluck a few strings and begin to play some simple chord progressions...

    Ouch.

    Sometime later with sore fingers and sorer ears, you glance out of the window and you see the familiar bow and cloak of Devron. He appears to be talking with Master Twindelore, riding Shuffles of course. Also, glancing further down the street you see some merchant gaurds, unmistakeable with those large swords and sour looks. You hesitate, merchant caravans pay well, but those patrons can get really rowdy sometimes. But knowing the Ale has lacked good business lately, you know their business would be appreciated.

    [Q]Granny sighs heavily as she rests herself in her favorite chair by the now cold fireplace. You stop sudenly, she looks so old just now, so old. Older than you could ever remember. And like a dark shadow in your mind, the thought comes to you that Granny may be Moving On soon. You shudder, quickly rejecting the thought.

    "Oh dearie, the Swansein's girl? She's not looking well at all. The Wet Lung disease is wasting the poor thing away. If only I had more Huri'ns Bloom! Blast it all, I ran out months ago.

    ...

    But I doubt any is blooming now, in this heat. She sighs. And I really don't have the energy to look for it. IF you see any, in the forest, bring it back here right away. But tend to your plants first. They must last the village for medical supplies... To bad Hurin's Blossom is so cursedly picky about living in the wild.[/Q]

    Nash finishes tending to his plants. Afterwards he tells Granny I'm going into the forest to look for Huri'ns Bloom just in case it is there. See you later. Nash proceeds to head towards the forest after collecting his animal companion (whatever it is) named Sunny.

    Changed the language and I will copy down the info on Greenbound Summoning so you know what it does.

    Looking wistfully at the lute, Aidan puts it down and picks up a few juggling balls and and begins to head outside, not only to see what Devron is up to, but also to see whether or not he can attract some of those merchants. Just as he is about to leave, he hesitates, goes back to the storage area and picks up the more familiar flute as well, just in case.

    Since you're a tiny bit behind time wise.

    Nash

    As you are preparing to head out of the house you find Granny sleeping comfortably in her rocking chair. You take the time to light a small fire in the hearth in order to warm up the room a bit and cover Granny with a blanket.

    As you begin to pack up and get ready to head out, you notice that your bag of seeds are missing. You need those seeds as a focus for a lot of your magics and knowing how dangerous it can be to head out into the forest unprepared, you grow a little worried. Also, that Sunny has disappeared again.

    Quickly putting two and two together, you begin to search the house for the little rascal.
    Spot:13 Search:14 Being frustrated after finding no trace of the miscreant you qiuetly whisper for Sunny. And, as you had hoped, the little green devil could not contain himself. You manage to hear a small hearty giggle from in the Amiore. You quickly approach it and open the doors.

    Sunny pops out, his flowery antennae springing to life from being cramped in the small place. He's blooming now this season, unlike many other plants.

    "Ehahe yioui fouinnd meithattwyiouddihehahhaeha!"He churtles, in surprisingly clear speech, or perhaps you're just finally getting used to it.

    You see him happily clutching your bag of seeds and he lifts them up for you to grab. You glance out of the window and shake your head, nearly an hour of daylight wasted on this little adventure. You can't help but chuckle. Sunny waddles off and climbs into his watering dish and happily soaks up some refreshment.

    Didn't know Sunny was a plant when I named him. Should be fun.

    Nash proceeds outside and prepares to go to the nearby forest to look for some Hurin's Blossom. He sees Devron coming to the house. Hey, Devron what are you up to? Want to come help Sunny and I look for Hurin's Blossom? The more of us looking the better.

    Nash would have included Aidan if he is there but I'm not sure if he is.

    Devron chuckles as he walks away from the outrageous gnome. It was still a mystery to himself and his father how the gnome had been able to train that pony so well. A horse that well trained would fetch quite a price!

    His thoughts quickly shift back to his current goal as he hears Nash's greeting. He sighs inwardly to himself as he hears Nash make a request to go look for more herbs. After all, time spent looking for herbs is less time spent finding more magical trinkets! However Granny Dadora might look favorably upon him if he helped Nash gather some of his herbs.

    He calls out Hey there Nash. I guess I can help out, my father let me go early today. I just happened to hear that there is alot of Hurin's Blossom out by those old ruins. Lets grab Aidan and head out there!

    Really? Awesome! Lets go! Nash is of course very pleased that his friends will come with him to find the Hurin's Blossom. As Devron and Nash proceed to get Aidan Nash asks So why what were you planning to do today before I got us something else to do?

    Aidan notices Nash approaching Devron and the two of them heading for the inn just as he's leaving. He calls out to them: Hile Devron, Nash, what are you two up to today?

    Devron's Bluff for Nash's question
    1d20+5=16

    Nash's Sense Motive
    1d20+3=18

    Nash notices that Devron wants to do something else... perhaps something to do with the ruins.

    Aiden

    You see your friends standing together and greet them. As you do you notice the two merchant gaurds give you three a glance then begin to make their way past your group, meandering down the street.

    Everyone

    Suddenly a small, shrill voice buts in from behind you. "Ooohhhh no! Iiiiiii'm telling! You know no one's allowed in the ruins. Everyone knows it's cursed, you're gonna get in so much trouble." Little Mae, the youngest daughter of the Jindle family, the bakers from across the street, is eyeing all three of you with her little fists on her hips and her lower lip about a mile out. Being seven, she's just beginning to understand the power of a little girl's tears and uses it to her advantage at every opportunity.
