    Default The AoS OOC Castle Building Discussion

    So, for the people who got in, discuss all of your ideas and such for Castle Chillingsworth. Once you have all finalized its layout and design I will start the actual campaign and OOC threads. Note: This is for players of The Age of Slaughter only. Please refrain from commenting if you are not one of them.

    Basics
    Castle Chillingsworth
    Climate: Warm(ish) -5%
    Terrain: Mountains +0% (-5% cost of stone walls)
    Primary Settlement: Large City 100 miles away. (-1%)
    Natural Features:
    Prohibits normal movement +4%
    Site Controls Income Source (mines) +10%
    Total: +8% (-5% cost to stone walls)

    Castle Chillingsworth is located about 100 miles north of the town of Valdistock. It is on the northern edge of the Boraihn mountains, near the ocean. It is just warm enough to be considered temperate-warm most of the year, but winters can be brutal. While the Boraihn Mountains are famed for the creatures living within its depths, no know tunnels to its Underdark are nearbye. Otherwise there aren't many monsters near it, as the Frost Giant Clans of the Boraihns usually keep to the southern portion of it.

    Since I would get a lot out of SnowMans itemmaking I would like to chip in for his forge if necessary. Just to get better stuff from him (maybe selfish, but true).

    For my room I reserved 10k, used on a sober room. The only thing I would like is a simple symbol on the wall (eventual a drape) with the sign of his order on it (which I still need to find out about).

    I'm assuming the Avery is for Elena, thank you very much for working that out for me. I'll knock the 34,851gp 7sp 5cp off my character sheet then start eyeing things up for the remaining gold unless anyone has any better ideas for using it.

    Not sure I need a magical lab what with not being a caster but I assume the scrying pool is useful.


    -Edit:
    Eep, ended up with a shed-ton of immunity from my gear. Death ward, freedom of movement, a couple miss chances, flight, blindsight, temporary undead immunities or true seeing, small AoE confusion stun and fear immunity.

    Throw that in with flyby and I'm darn hard to kill.

    OK, I'm trying to work out the costs for Engyn's forge, but I'm having trouble. Here's a list of how I'd like it built, and perhaps I can get help with it

    Engyn's Forge
    Smith, Fancy+Forge of the Armorsmith*+Forge of the Weaponsmith*+Coldfire Engine*+2 Adamantine Doors+2 Adamantine Locks(Amazing)+Hewn Stone Walls**+Magmafall" (Note: Don't want windows here. Maybe get a permanent light spell, or use the light from the Magmafall)

    Armory, Fancy+Hewn Stone Walls**+Adamantine Door+Adamantine Lock(Amazing)+Chamber of the Unliving

    {Bath, Basic + Bedroom suit, basic (smith) + 2 Simple Wooden doors + Hewn stone walls} x5. At least one of the personal smiths should be dwarven.

    Bath, Basic + Bedroom suit, basic (engineer) + 2 Simple Wooden doors + Hewn stone walls. (This guy should be a gnome.)

    Bath, Basic + Bedroom suit, basic (clerk) + 2 Simple Wooden doors + Hewn stone walls

    *What book(s) are these from?
    **Since this part of the castle is technically underground, does that give us free Hewn Stone Walls?

    I'm afb, but I beleive that it is not free, just at a good discount (since labor still costs money).

    O.K., I've almost entirely finished my character except for deciding on what rooms I'm going to have swallowed. I know I plan on having a few blank rooms that I can fill in with my Machine supports, forges, and various other features. Sheet here.

    Necrotic, you need to edit the permissions on your sheet. It isn't classified as public.

    Added the Arcanist forge I made before.
    Tell me if you want anything changed.

    My computer crashed yesterday, only reason this wasn't already up. lol.

    EDIT:
    The Magical Forges are from Races of Stone. I just paid more to remove the Dwarf only requirement. But you could get them at their standard prices and have a Dwarf weaponsmith and Armorsmith on standby.

    The Coldfire engine is for powering vehicles in Frostburn.
    But again I modified it's purposed based from a description of some of the fluff in the Frostburn book. :)
    Still produces coldfire. But magical coldfire can be used to make special weapons from certain substances.

    If you want it in the basement your walls still are not free, but they are damned cheap.
    Unless you want it to be just a converted cave. lol.

    I present to you, The Composer. Ancient warforged planeswalker, and artificer extraordinaire. To all you weapon users, I'd suggest you lower your weapon enhancements to +1 and whatever special abilities you wish. Both Duskranger and I can cast Greater Magic Weapon, which means you'll have +3 to +4 magical weapons without money expenditure.

    Just asking, because im not sure which it is: Is the town portion underground, or is it in some valleyish or platau in the mountain range and you can only reach it by land from the castle? Also, where are the mines relative to the town and castle?

    Also, save the money, Composer won't take a room, choosing instead to wander the hallways. It doesn't sleep anyway, and everything it has, it's already carrying with it.

    Same goes for Engyn. No need for sleep, and all gear can be stored either with him or in his armory.

    Hey, reading the manual I'm getting mixed signals, exactly how big is a "stronghold space"? I'm looking at wondrous architecture, and trying to figure out how big the rooms should be. My current idea is having at least one "comestibles room" that will have:

    1 endless basin
    1 Table of Feasting (depending on money, may replace with table of safe meals)
    1 Pantry of preservation
    1 Everful larder

    And a medical place that will have:
    1 unseen servant (to assist in healing)
    1 restorative bed/platform of some type
    1 Summoning stone
    Some inscriptions of some sort (since this is where I get my 2 hours sleep)

    A "war room"
    Blade Barrier covering outside (I circumvent this by opening portal directly inside it)
    1 or 2 varieties of magic map
    Some privacy inscriptions (since this is where I will keep anything of note)

    And Ideally, these would have some version of the permanent "hut" spells so I can vomit out whole, specialized rooms. If I need more, I open a mouth with a second stomach in it.

    Question: how does Cho qualify for Machine, it requires the Construct type?
    Probably also should say Menacing Manor 2, but that's just a nitpick.

    I must admit, it's a pretty interesting idea you've got going, I haven't finished reading up Owrtho's work yet, but it looks like it'll be a fun read .

    Actually, that only applies to Non-warforged constructs. And in either case, a warforged can always repair itself, no matter what class or feats it has.

    I could cast greater magic weapon but it's not on my spell list. Will put it on though, since I am missing more spells that I would like to have.

    On the other hand Snowman can you craft items for me? If possible I will give you 5000 xp for it (if the DM agrees) and offcourse a large chunk of money, it would bring some items that I would like to get into range.

    And I was planning on getting a wand of at least magic fang could you cast it when the need is there and I need to change in a hydra?

    Being a wizard, you can spend the money it takes to buy the scroll and add the spell to your list.

    Standing offer to anyone, if you have something you wish to have made, just ask and I'll see what can be done.

    Built INTO the mountain. So mostly underground, though only just.
    Only official way in is via the castle.

    Though there are caves and tunnels and secret passages maybe, that may lead out another way. lol.

    Edit: Moved the Forge into the basement, made all of the assistants Warforged. Removed all of the bedrooms and windows. Removed the Residence I had for the Artificer and Warforged.

    OK, here's the (almost) final list of things for Engyn's forge. I might think up something else, depending on how much money is left.

    Smith, Fancy+Forge of the Armorsmith and Sustenance (Full Dwarven)+Coldfire Engine+2 Adamantine Doors+2 Adamantine Locks(Amazing)+Hewn Stone Walls+Magmafall (Permanent Image cast by a level 11 illusionist. Costs 760 gp)

    Armory, Fancy+Hewn Stone Walls+Adamantine Door+Adamantine Lock(Amazing)+Chamber of the Unliving

    {Bath, Basic + Bedroom suit, basic (smith) + 2 Simple Wooden doors + Hewn stone walls} x5. All of the personal smiths should be dwarven.

    Bath, Basic + Bedroom suit, basic (engineer) + 2 Simple Wooden doors + Hewn stone walls. (This guy should be a gnome.)

    I moved it into the basement. Only going to be 1 way down there. A single Adamantine Door with Amazing locks or even better Improved Arcane Lock would do the job.

    Or I could make the doorway down a secret door behind the Smithy on the ground level. Place some arcane stuff on it so it cannot be used except by you guys.

    The other option is NO doorway down but we put a portal somewhere more secure in the Palace. Like my office next to the Throne itself.

    That is a lot of extra expenditure.
    I already have a town that provides the castle with endless food supplies.

    I can make you an infirmary kind of place and your own residence all connected, probably on the ground floor.

    I also have a war-room of sorts with the conjoined office spaces next to the throne. Heck I can seal off the Throne room and use that anyway. lol

    List of items I would like to have crafted:

    Starmantle Cloak - 66000k
    Hanks Splitting Energy Bow - 32300gp
    Wand of Greater Magic Fang CL 20 (if Possible) (Don't know)
    +1 large Wounding Undead Bane SpellStoring GreatSword - 25200
    Ring of Blinking 13500
    Wand of Greater Invisiblity CL 15 (or higher) (Don't know the calculation for this)
    +1 Soulfire Mithral Chain Shirt 13050

    All prices are with gp.

    Total costs: 150050 + the two wands.

    With the left over money I can buy scrolls, a wand of Wraithstrike, a wandchamber. If you can't craft something please tell me so that I will buy that at full cost.

    Did most of the Lord Marshal. Well worth his 500gp per month.
    His sheet is up. Doing his followers and Maneuvers now.
    Then I'll move onto the other NPCs as they are much simpler.
