The Four-Blood Gate

Discussion in 'THREAD ARCHIVES' started by Asmodeus, Mar 30, 2013.

  1. A trap will be sprung tonight, in the city of Vartus.


    For two hundred years, the Elves and their celestial allies have guarded the Four-Blood Gate, a holy seal placed upon the entrance to the Underdark. Their city is strong, their people prosperous, their future bright.

    They had nothing to fear from Lord Draegard, a Lich who marched with an undead army to storm the mountain stronghold. They crushed his forces. They repelled his attack. They defeated the Lich.

    Or so history stated...

    But tonight that timeline will be changed. Tonight the city will be weakened from within, by agents of the Neutral Powers. And Draegard will take the city and the Four-Blood Gate. He will force his way into the Underdark, and be lost forever, the threat of his power removed entirely from the heartlands.

    Tonight evil will be done... for the greater good of all...

    This adventure is part of the Serendark campaign, a regular series of chat nights open to Iwaku members. It uses the Roll20 virtual tabletop.

    The game is Version 3.5 rules and Newbie Friendly, meaning a chance for newcomers to get to grips with the D&D system (the way I once did, by being tossed right into the jaws of hell).

    - The starting level for this particular adventure is 5, and starting Experience Points are 10,000.

    - Stats are determined using the Points Buy system. You may spend a maximum of 30 points.

    - This adventure will call for actions of EVIL INTENT. Therefore, do not select an alignment that will put you in a moral dilemma when called upon to commit such acts. It will also be a city adventure (no wilderness).

    - Starting gold is 5000gp, and you may share wealth with other players if you wish. Characters continuing from the last quest use only what treasure they found.

    - Anyone who has a crapload of gold left, feel free to buy magic items. I can help you go through this if you want.
    The options are: (open)

    - Magic Armour - just add the base price to the price of a normal shield/suit, then scroll down if you want to add even more fancy shit, like fire-proofing, spell-resistance, etc.

    - Magic Weapons - same again, just look for the base price and add this to a normal weapon cost, then scroll down if you want to enchant an unusual weapon or give it special abilities.

    - Potions - these should be quite affordable, and it's always good to have some healing potions on hand.

    - Rings - you might have to pool some money to get one of these.

    - Scrolls - some of these are quite cheap, but bear in mind the CASTER LEVEL shown on the third table on this page (right hand column). If you try to cast a spell that has a higher Caster Level than you, it has the potential to explode in your face. Also, non-magic characters with the Use Magic Device skill can attempt to use scrolls, but again with the "explode-and-die" prospect.

    - Staffs, Rods and Wands - expensive and fancy shit for you Wizards and Clerics.

    - Wondrous Items - for other random doodads.

    - If you have a character in the Club Archive from previous games, you may use this and retain what wealth they had (as long as it's no more than 3000gp)

    - No Psionics allowed, and be sure to ask before using supplements (I have an extensive collection, but probably not everything).

    - A quickstart character creation guide can be found here.

    - Please use the Iwaku Dicebox to roll your second/third/fourth level hitpoints. Procedure is detailed in spoiler tags below. You may opt for ONE complete reroll of all 3 dice, but if you do this you must accept the second result.

    Dice Roll Procedure (open)
    We'll be using the Dice Box for our rolls. It can be found here.

    When rolling stats, use the dice box for any rolls you have to make. The code is /roll _d_, with the first space being the number of dice, and the second space being the type of dice. For example /roll 1d6, /roll 1d20, etc. Both numbers are needed for the code to work.


    All rolls must have a description posted first, so that anyone who reads the dice box can see what you're rolling for.

    You can make test rolls if you like. Just post the word "TEST" before you make the roll.

    I will be checking the dice box logs when I review your character sheets. Any rolls that don't fit what you've posted or don't have a description before them in the Dice Box will be assumed invalid and I will penalise you in-game for being a big cheating poopy head.

    - Don't forget Skill Synergy bonuses if you have them!

    - Your brief background must explain why the mysterious creatures of Castle Serendark decided to pick you up and why you decided to stay with them and serve their cause of protecting the timeline.

    - Alignment in this campaign will be VERY changeable, due to the energies running through the castle and how they affect mortal minds. So be prepared to roleplay some very different alignment swings during your time as a Knight.

    BACKGROUND (open)
    Torrim's father was a Runescribe, from a long line of historians who painstakingly collected the deeds of the Hill Tribes. All Harmalks were trained at an early age to carve and treat the copper plates used as pages in the books of Dwarven Lore, and for fifteen years Torrim followed comfortably in his family's tradition. But then disaster struck. There was an explosion at the forge, caused by a consignment of cursed ore pulled up from the depths. It took his father's sight and scarred his hands. Overnight, Torrim's father lost the very things he needed for his craft. Of course, as all stubborn Dwarves, he tried to carry on his work, but after spoiling so many copper plates he turned his hopes to his son and did his best to instruct the young apprentice. Years of frustration, toil and recrimination followed, with Torrim taking over more of his father's duties but at the same time failing to perfect the Runescribe arts as his father did. Finally, after a series of blazing rows, he gave up entirely, and the finances of the Harmalk family fell into ruin. In order to pay their debts, Torrim's parents turned to the Guilds for help. It was the Mercenary Guild who eventually agreed to take on the debt, and as payment they assumed custody of Torrim, placing him in a forced apprenticeship programme. For the next three years he learned the art of mountaineering and the waraxe and lost altogether his fleeting knowledge of crafting and inscription. But Torrim never settled to the life of a community guardian, and in time he left the Hill Tribes, resentful of his father and resentful of his people for turning his family's misfortune into slavery. And a year later, when freezing to death on the side of a mountain after losing his ropes, Torrim encountered a curious Stave who took pity on him. He has not returned home for 32 years.
    EXPERIENCE (open)
    XP POINTS: 10,000​

    During the quest to rescue the Yarrow Maiden, Torrim learned three lessons. The first was how to improve his swimming technique, after nearly drowning in the lakes of the Salamander Valley. Secondly, how to tie good quick-release knots, as doing so saved his life on many occasions when climbing and leaping around the dungeon. And thirdly, he learned how to better endure the extremes of hot and cold, after nearly passing out in the Fire Chamber.

    But none of this compares to what he learned from the late departed Beligzbuss Longbothem. At first an aggravating and destructive pest, Biggs proved himself to be the moral compass of the party - a Halfling who took a chance on Sarnock, the Kobold prisoner, and gave his life for Lissa, the villager girl caught in the crossfire of the final battle. Torrim had never before seen such kindness that crossed all racial boundaries. It made him reconsider his own prejudices. Torrim has learnt now not to blame an individual for the errors of their species. And his Charisma has been better for it.

    During the adventure to provoke the Westland War, Torrim became more familiar with the handling of horses. He also made the acquaintance of a Were-Jackal, who taught him a thing or two about the nature of animalkind. But perhaps greater were the scars he received from the attack of an Undead Wyvern which near-killed him. The Wyvern was one of Lord Draegard's early experiments, so as far as Torrim is concerned the Lich drew first blood in this fight.

    Wolfsin shed his old light as a captain of a specific guard, a voice of war and a blade to be feared. He now took up the crest of his father, which was that of a Wolf howling atop a castle wall, and has resigned himself to his sins by leaving the holy guard. His views and ideas did not match those simpletons, and when the Lord he served passed on, and "holy" bishops took up his place, the man could not escape fast enough. He spent time wandering the world, learning new things about his skill, and doing all he could to not allow his skills to lack as a Knight, and to impose his chivalrous life style into a Neutral life style, one where he did not do what was expected, rather he did what he felt was right for the time, what seemed good to him, a true neutral being with a lot to offer, and no where to go with it.

    Not but a few years into his adventures, having accumulated a new reputation to the new name he'd obtained. a wolf among sheep and a warrior not to be matched by most. Wolfsin was a phantom; a legend to be spoken of but still there was no place for him. Until one day out of the blue as if some odd celestial divinity swept over him, he could hear the voice of other such warriors, a call that to no other man but he would sound like home. He reached forward and in a symbol of accepting the fate he'd been tossed into. Wolfsin become one of the Chosen, one of the few to mark his place in the Castle Serendark. A whole new legacy about to unfold for the man, one he looked to with all of his might. As the cause of the mission was explained to him, for one final time Wolfsin chose to swear Allegiance to a cause aside from himself.

    Finally something of worth came about, Wolfsin was a Knight of Serendark, and on his very first mission with his group he met a variety of different people, all with their own stories,a nd tragedies to retell around a warm camp fire. They fought bandits, Harpies, Dryads, an undead Wyvern, and even a battalion of Orcs with their great King, an adventure of worth, one that made him feel truly alive as one of them. Along the way he gained a common understanding with the rogue Jezabeth, and a respect with Torrim the Dwarven footed tank. He finally felt at home in this place, especially now as he returned to the great Castle Serendark, and partake in the treasures of their conquest, now he was scheduled to leave with a group and some new for yet another quest, and as he prepared his equipment and reflected on his experience, he found that he could not feel anymore at home than this.

Surviving the massacre, he fought through the island's dungeons only to finally fall foul of a basilisk.

    When he awoke, he found himself in the halls of Castle Serendark several years after his group's apparent death on the island. Life had moved on in his absence, and he found himself searching for purpose in amidst it all. Such a purpose soon revealed itself, however, in the form of service to the Staves.

    Garrick now acts as a specialist on the Castle's Interventions, his skills as a thief and ranged combatant making him invaluable.[/size]

    Vriona hails from a land known for their spices, teas and henna. She chose to depart from this world shortly after being rescued from Samma, one of the Staves residing in Castle Sendark. Her acquaintance with the Water Serpent began when she was a teenager, playing in the waters alone one day. A large wave caused her to lose her footing and the water took her under. Frightened for her life, the Cleric vowed that if she were to be saved she would devote her life to her savior's cause.

    From the depths of the sea rose a giant sliver serpent, covered in scales and fins. It took Vriona back to the surface on its head and there they agreed that she would leave her home and spend the rest of her life in the Castle. She has not forgotten where she came from however, as her chambers are filled with the scent of different spices and her hands are often covered in henna art. She's also seen wearing a brightly colored sari.

    Her relationship with Samma is strange, while Vriona does worship the serpent, she also considers it a friend. They do not speak often.

    Personality: The energies of the castle have changed Vriona's perspective and personality. She is now eccentric, talkative to the point of ungodly annoying. With her wand, she has a habit of spewing out random words and calling them spells. The Cleric still cares about the members in her party but it might be advisable for them to carry around ear plugs.

  8. fix this shit when you have time (open)

    Behlry Graveltoes
    Gnome Druid
    Level 5
    True Neutral






    Charisma:13 (+1).[/TD]
    INIT: +2

    Speed: 20

    AC: 13

    HP: 56

    BAB: +3 (+1 size bonus)

    FORT: +9
    REF: +3
    WILL: +8 (+2 racial against illusions)

    Background: One of several potion specialists of Serendark, Behlry is not one to leave the comfort of the fortress often. An old crotchety Gnome who complains a lot and tends to carry all manners of stories about when he was your age, Mr. Graveltoes tends to get the stigma of that guy you just avoid. This stigma in all honestly, is exactly Behlry's intention. While the druid plays the role of a absent minded kook of a gnome, he's in fact fiendishly intelligent and relentlessly resourceful. Society and the people in it just tend to bore him with the trivial nonsense of everyday life. His room in the castle has over the years been completely turned into a self sustaining ecosystem, complete with wildlife, flora and fauna. A fact that leave several people in the wing of his chamber not so happy.

    Keeping to the premise of a weak old man, when Behlry does move outside his domain, he does it often from the back of his trusty companion Marmaduke. If saliva was currency, the dog would be a bastion of economic welfare. A sweet heart of an animal but far too large for his own understanding and usually good for nothing more than ruining carpets. Behlry has raised the animal from birth and dotes on him like an overprotective father. When he is forced to travel by foot, it is done very slowly while leaning on a gnarled wooden stick. The stick seems to have been hallowed out in several places and supports a small self sustained bee hive. While odd looking, the staff is nothing particularly special.

    Asking Behlry where he was originally from usually leads to an off topic ramble about a turnip recipe he heard of once. What does manage to stay on topic usually entails that whatever his reasons for making a home in Castle Serendark, it happened a very long time ago. This is partially true. Years before, the gnome hailed from a stretch of land called The Forest of Kyrat. Born among the vegetation, the gnome lived in harmony with the land for a good portion of his life. A solitary life with little worry. Near the end of his stay among the wood, the borders of the land were overrun by the laborers of an unknown army. Overwhelming the land with the requirements of large scale war, the forest was clear cut and left in cinders. It was to this tune that the castle made it's appearance.

    Taking what seeds and creatures he could carry, the Druid escaped the forest of his birth before it was leveled. Making a pact with the keepers of the Castle, he agreed to provide them with his knowledge of potions, alchemy and nature if he would be allowed to preserve what little of his home he could.

    Having taken several arrows and a particularly nasty rapier to the gut in the previous mission against the green skin nation, Bhelry has managed to find himself even more fortuitous than when he left.

    After saving the party's cleric the Druid had justly named "Godsucker" after a previous encounter with a bar patron, Bhelry kept the wand he used to save her life. When questioned about it, the druid played it off as if he had forgotten the whole experience entirely.
