    Default [Dn-D 3.5; OOC] A New Island, a New Life!

    IC Thread

    This is the OOC thread for the A New Island, a New Life! campaign, an experimental sandbox campaign.

    Spoiler: Setting / Backstory / Hook
    Show

    It was almost dawn when the ground started to shake.

    Jumping out of bed, you hear the fire bells start ringing. You barely have time to put on some clothes before the roof begins to crack. Grabbing your most precious possessions (and whatever family you might have), you make it to the streets just before the house collapses on itself.

    A bright glow on top of the mountain quickly catches your eye. The volcano is spitting out lava! You race downhill, towards the docks, where people are already being crammed into boats. You make it into one. Half a minute later, you are off, and just in time. The lava touches the water, fizzling and popping. You can feel the heat.

    And, worse still, you can hear the screams of people being burned alive. It smells like charred flesh, too.

    You have been adrift ever since.

    It has been almost a week since that happened. Supplies on the boats are dwindling, even when complemented by fishing.

    But there is hope. Yesterday afternoon, someone spotted an island on the horizon.

    Today, you can already see it clearly. It is green, lush forest covering almost its entirety. Old ruins hint at a previous occupation and later abandon. This morning, the leader of this small community, a survivor of a noble family, called a meeting. As a result, you, the fittest members of this group, have been selected to take a small boat, explore the island, and return within three days with information and supplies.

    Another refugee is tagging along with you. His name is Anton Quick. He is a young boy, convicted of robbery. He says he saved himself when the jail's roof collapsed, and has been offered freedom if he helps you.

    You are now very close. A small raft has been lowered into the water. You climb down a rope ladder into the boat, with nothing but some equipment and food, and the ropes are cut. You row for a few minutes towards the island.

    You can see the coast more clearly now. You see a small pier stick out from the sandy beach. There is also a small stone building in the middle of the beach. Beyond that, there is only forest. Old ruins stick out of the treetops, standing tall in the distance. Maneuvering carefully, the boat bumps into the pier. You all get out. The boat is tied to stone pillars. There were once iron rings on them to tie the ropes to, but all that remains now are rust stains.

    You take a new look around you. Fifteen feet to your right is another huge stone pier, like the one you are standing on now. Ahead of you, to the right, you see the stone building. Fifty feet wide, with a smaller room on the left side, you recognize it as probably being a tavern or inn.

    Everything is silent, except for the birds in the treetops, occasionally soaring over your heads. If you are going to be devoured or mauled to death, it isn't soon.

    You are now on your own, and have three days before getting back into the boat.

    Good luck. You'll need it.



    The players and characters are:

    - Anton Quick (wkwkwkwk1), UA Expert 3

    - Alveron "Alvie" Thomson (Dread_Head), Barbarian 1 / Swashbuckler 3
    - Danto Fjordenhome (Seiji), Rogue 3 / Swashbuckler 1
    - Vyncent Bourne (rs2excelsior), Ranger 4
    - Victory (Recaiden), Psion (Telepath) 4
    - Oliver Drake (Sir Toast), Cleric 4
    - Gregorovitch Romanovsky (Vaarsuvio), Wizard 4

    Here's a reminder on some rules/variants:
    - I will be doing some of the rolls in secret, such as Sense Motive;
    - Fumble Table
    - 2d10 Variant;
    - Variant: An Appraise; Bardic Knowledgs; Knowledge (Arcana) or Spellcraft check can be used to identify items;
    - Level-Independent XP Awards;
    - Metamagic Components;
    - Massive Damage with HD+Size-based alternate threshold (the base value before the HD is half the value given by the size-based threshold), the Variable Result alternative for save results and scaling saving throw;
    - Death and Dying;
    - Spontaneous Metamagic (Limited to three times per day, cannot be used to cast a spell beyond the normal level limit, must spend extra spell slots).

    What colours will your characters speak with?

    Vyncent will speak in Dark Green.

    Also, shouldn't this be in the OOC subforum?

    Alvie will speak in Dark Orange.

    I guess we'll let Vyncent take the lead to start with being the most experienced outdoorsman?

    How big was the town we fled from? Are our characters likely to know each other?

    This sort of blue for Victory. She is new in town, unlikely to know everyone intra the place is very small. But now that we're fleeing, maybe.

    Eh, you don't have to worry much about the outdoors for now. For now...

    Pretty big, only about a fifth of the total made it. Maybe you have seen each other once or twice, but probably not. You have probably seen each other around in the ships, but only since this morning do you know you'll be working together.

    Well, as I said above.

    Don't worry, you'll have a small while to talk about yourselves!

    And that's everyone, I think. Let me get a good night's sleep, and we'll be starting tomorrow, first thing in the morning!

    Again, Sir Toast, how does your character know an extra language, having no Int bonus?

    Yeah, one good night's slep turned into two, turned into a very busy weekend. Expect an IC maybe by the morning, probably by the afternoon.

    Yes you have

    Who said you are going to fight anything? For all you know, this sound could well be the waves on an underground cave or a stomping trap

    As usual, I'll probably have an IC post in the afternoon

    Just to let everyone know, I'll be out of town and away from my computer until sometime Sunday afternoon. If something like combat starts between now and then, feel free to assume my character follows the lead of the rest of the party. Y'all have fun!

    Not that I'll definitely have to make a Reflex Save when the trapped box goes off, but just in case.
