Makara OOC

Post  Ramsus on Sun Mar 15, 2015 11:25 pm

A hilly tropical/semi-tropical land bordered by a long mountain range to the west, seas to the north and east, and a large swamp to the south. It is home to Kelfas, what was once the greatest city the world had ever known. Over three hundred years ago it fell to the orcish hordes and the survivors scattered, mostly to the north. Since the fall it has been deemed the worst of luck to even speak the name of that once great city.

Since then those survivors have established four major cities and numerous towns and villages. Three of these dub themselves sister cities as they are connected by a massive river that runs through them, and the fourth stands alone farther to the south east. The sister cities are as follows: Lf'ern a forest-city surrounding a great lake, home to many elves, gnomes, and watersoul genasi all whom mainly worship Corellon and Sehanine. Asatol is a city surrounded on eight sides by walls, it is the most cosmopolitan of the three sister cities, and worship there is mainly to Bahamut, Pelor, and Avandra. The third city is known as Kergan's Hold, occupying space both east of and inside of the western mountain range, home mainly to dwarves with larger minorities of humans and halflings and as such they mostly worship Moradin . All of the three sister cities are somewhat xenophobic and judgmental, especially of those who worship any of the other gods or are tieflings or other less populous races.

The lone city is known as the Anvil by the Sea or sometimes just Anvil, due to it being bordered by a mountain range, the sea, and great walls to the north and south. Sometimes it is also called the Free City as it is the only of the four cities where one is not judged based on their race or religion and it being ruled by elected leaders, rather than nobility.

Recently an elven general known as the Boar gathered the forces he could, having come to the conclusion it was high time the civilized races tried to re-take Kelfas from the orcs who had probably mostly left by now. He did not receive much support, but he was given some troops from each of the three sister cities. On his way he fought with bandits and other ruffians and added the survivors to his ranks as his force made its way southward. By the time they reached Kelfas the ratio of soldiers to bandits was nearly even, which over time combined with the toll on their hearts on minds changed the behaviors and acceptable behaviors of the Boar and his men. At Kelfas they found, as the Boar had thought, that most of the orcs had moved on. Still there were a great many left to rout. But rout them they did, with the help of the half-orcs of Kelfas who had always been treated by their kin as little better than servants and punching bags. However after the battle was over, most of the proper soldiers, or at least those who still thought of themselves as such, had perished and the Boar had seen so much battle that he abandoned the faith of Bahamut for that of Kord. And so now in "control" of the ruins of a city far too large for their numbers, half of which was completely inaccessible due to monsters and overgrown plant-life thanks to the orcs having completely abandoned it long ago, the Boar's bandit army began to work on repairing and rebuilding what they could while going out and taking what supplies they needed from nearby settlements, including the people themselves as slaves.

And this is where your characters come into the picture. You all, like many others, have been captured and placed in guarded penned off areas with a few dozen others where you await whatever comes next.

Due to the thing used to make the map, the map is a bit "fatter" than it should be (meaning the distances north/south should be greater). Also worth noting is that Kelfas is a lot bigger than it appears on the map (part of the map size constraints as otherwise it would essentially swallow up too much of the space north and south of it).

Thanks to DB for making the map.
He's also to blame for the dormant volcano by Anvil being named Anvil Rock.

Not sure that locking will do much, if they're going to bust down the door then the additional lock wouldn't do much more to stop them, and if they can use the handle we probably have bigger problems than the lock can solve. Then again, no real loss to locking it, unless it's like 'oh no we locked ourselves in and the lock jammed and there's a thing in here with us,' but I'm not really convinced that we'll get into that situation.
tl;dr sure, I guess. If just normal big ants come we won't really have a way to know they're there until they start slamming into the door (knocking), but that's basically what we'd be waiting for regardless.

People have requested I put some information here, so here it is.

Movement/Distances
On the combat map, we calculate the distances by counting the shortest number of touching squares it takes to get from thing A to thing B. Diagonals count the same as horizontal/vertical. That's all, it's that simple.
Area's are usually going to be square or rectangle shapes unless they're specific in how they work (like walls). For example, a 15 foot cone would be 3 squares by 3 squares.

NPCs
The Boar:

Leader of "the Boar's men", a group of former military men mainly from Lf'ern and Asatol, bandits, and half-orcs from Ruined Kelfas trying to restore Kelfas to it's former glory. Even if this means taking people by force and using them as slave labor.

A more muscular than any elf you have ever seen. If he was a human, he would have the appearance of a massive bodybuilder that could probably bench another bodybuilder. Being an elf he isn't quite that muscular, but elves tend very much towards slim and wiry than overly muscled so he must be incredibly strong. His hair has a bit of grey in it and he has a great many scars.

Char:

A somewhat attractive woman with short and messy red hair, grey eyes, pale skin, and has a scar across her right cheek, probably from some kind of blade. Wears grey robes and is some kind of powerful magic user. The Boar's "right hand man" and former leader of a large group of bandits.

Zanthaelis:

A male drow who is part of the leadership of the Boar's Men. Wears a brown robe.

(Ant) Queen:

An ant-like humanoid. She has six limbs (two legs and four arms that are partially covered in chitinous plates but have human-like hands and feet aside from the fact that they're clawed) and stands upright as a human does (though she's clearly over seven feet tall), has a human or elvish looking face (aside from the large ant-like eyes) with lightly pointed ears and antenna and mandibles (in addition to a regular jaw structure) and chitin that appears almost helmet shaped, has chitinous parts around her abdomen, and has a large metasoma (ant equivalent of abdomen/butt) that hangs behind her on a foot off the ground somewhat like a big fat tail. The only article of clothing she's wearing is a belt that holds a pair of swords in their scabbards.

Commands a colony of ants at war with another colony under Kelfas. Has magic that she imbues into her ants.

Zarethria Nailo:

A female drow. Lesser Councilor of the City of Lo'Toth.

Options for paper, above cr 0 creatures, are:

flying snake, what you currently have except she'd benefit from the other thing you're getting
poisonous snake, what it sounds like
slaad tadpole, choatic frog baby, it's...a choice?
stirge, funky mosquito-bat that latches onto creatures and drinks their blud
pixie, tiny spellcasting friend
psuedodragon, tiny friendly telepathic dragon pal
sprite, tiny combat buddy
imp, tiny darksight & combat devil
quasit, tiny spooky combat demon
faerie dragon, tiny telepathic spellcasting dragon dude

(and from Volo's guide...)
cranium rat, hive mind rat, spy for an elder brain
neogi hatchling, baby snake spider, race of enslavers, no enslaving ability yet tho
vargouille, person's head with bat wings, got a stunning song

honorable mentions:
nilbog, a spirit that possesses goblins and makes them jesters on a warpath. not a valid choice for familiar because it's a small creature
quickling, live fast die fast, damage pump, can't be hit, autobanned
gazer, telepathic, magic casting fuck 'em up boi. requires you to be able to cast 3rd level magics to become a familiar tho, so not actually an option

not that you need this, I was honestly just curious and wanted to look at what the options were, and figured I might as well put together a list while I was at it

If Paper does pick the Familiar options I've decided none of the options are "no", just that some might be "yes, but with modifications". If he wants a tiny version of something else CR 1 or below we can talk about that too I suppose. Though way to make things difficult theoretically Paper! =P

Want for shops list:
Clothes, food, jewelry I guess. Vaguely interested in what arms and armor are available here.
A gift shop and knickknacks are always enjoyed.

It's mostly Steam that cares about what stuff's around, Parveth's kind of passionately disinterested

Ketha is interested in blacksmiths, arms, armour, magic shops, things like that in the shop catergory. Culture-wise, she wants to focus on taverns, open air theatre, and anything more sorted towards the lower and lower-middle class, and prefering to avoid anything high society or with a similar grandeur to the building we are currently in. She values staying with the whole group though and will deviate from what she wants or doesn't want to do to make sure the party sticks together...

Still no real clue about stores aside from maybe a map of the area of the underdark, travel stuff like first aid, look around to see if they sell anything magical like bags of holding or weapons, and more in character just kinda looking around to see what they might make from spider silk or other unique things to the area

Stuff already specified in Gold's!
General Description wrote:Gold's indeed is some kind of miscellaneous goods shop indeed. There is a large main room and a smaller side room through an open doorway with no door to the right. There is also a back room concealed by a curtain.
There are a bunch of glass cabinets in the interior of the rooms and shelves along the walls containing all manner of things. Candles with odd looking wax, hourglasses in various sizes and colors of sand, belts, shoes, pins, combs, broaches, pendants, necklaces, knives, rings, bracelets, bottles of who knows what in various sizes, some books, small animal skeletons or skulls (some covered in metal or wax or other things), jewelry boxes, figurines of stone or metal or gemstones, hand mirrors, a ball that seems to be made of spun gold, a broken glass staff, masks, and a variety of other strange things.
Debatably Cursed Masks wrote:The first is a bone dia de los muertes style mask (white with black and red features, maybe yellow too if you want some flowers on it).
The second is something similar, but more of a domino mask and it's black with white features.
The third is a mask that resembles a five legged starfish with it's arms rotation clockwise and it has three lenses made of yellow quartz.
The fourth is a half-mask that resembles an bird (it has a short bill) that is mostly made from dark green, dark blue, brown, and white feathers.
The fifth is a wooden mask that is all gnarled and twisted and appears to have several holes, but has a main one in the center that has an obsidian lens.
Egg wrote:a large egg covered in flower petals and beetle wings

The shopkeep cackles as if Ketha had just told a very amusing joke and then says, "The person who sold it to me didn't know. They found it deep deep deeeeeeeep down. They said it rose out of a deep blue waters so blue they stained skin."
Wrist Bangles wrote:A pair of medium thickness golden bangles adorned with deep red stones (stones as in rocks, not gems) and short embossed lines of silver between each of the stones.
A single thick bone bangle with jade beads (the pieces of the bangle are attached by the jade so it clacks a bit).
A pair of thin bangles apparently made of unmelting ice with a pattern of circles atop circle overlapping.
A single thin bangle of platinum with ivy wrapped around it.
A pair of thick amber bangles with a tiny fish in one and a moth in the other. If you look at them for a bit you notice the fish and moth move through the bangles very slowly.
A single medium thickness bangle of pink coral studded with amethyst.
A pair of thin black bangles. One has X's made of small bones on it. The other is unadorned but has cracks spiderwebbing throughout.
A single thin iron bangle with a spiral pattern and three topazs evenly spaced out.
Long & Fluffy Cloaks wrote:Red velvet with a symbol on the back and on the top of the cuffs and on the inside of the hood (The symbol is a circle that has the bottom half filled in. So like the outline of the circle and it's divided in half top and bottom and the bottom half is silver and the top half is the red velvet.)
Suede with white stitching of various animal shapes as a sort of pattern
White and black cashmere in a checkered pattern
Fox fur with the hood being the fox's head type thing (complete with the teeth, though the eyes have been replaced with glass eyes)
Crow feathers
Necklaces wrote:A bone necklace with a teardrop shaped garnet
A silver necklace with a square sapphire
An iron necklace with a small circular mirror
A gold necklace with a hollow heart
An unadorned copper necklace
A necklace of black pearls
A heavier gold necklace of lapis lazuli ovals and teardrops in two layers (like the necklace is made of gold with lapis lazuli ovals below the neck and then more gold necklace attached to that and another layer of lapis lazuli teardrops with a circular lapis lazuli in the middle of the bottom layer)
Rings wrote:A wooden ring studded with small rubies
A glass ring with a rose shaped "gem" that's also glass and part of the ring.
A brass ring with various runes etched in black on it
A ring that appears to be make of a yellow and black serpent entwined around itself
A platinum ring with a gold sphere as a "gem"
A moonstone ring with a triangular "gem" (note: triangle, not pyramid)
Bags wrote:A sack made of copper thread with a white braided drawstring.
A brow leather purse with a vaguely U shape with a diamond shape branded on it and a square branded inside of the diamond brand.
A gray leather rectangular messenger bag that looks like it's made mainly for holding papers or scrolls. Has an orange rose stitched on the flap.
Figurines wrote:A steel vaguely person shaped figurine made of lines playing a harp (so basically a metal stick figure)
A brass figurine of a snake wrapped around and through a larger snake skull
A cobalt figurine of a chair with cobalt blue swirls painted on
A nickel figurine of a carriage pulled by a spider
A copper figurine of an orangutan wielding a mace

Things in blue are what Steam has dibs of sorts on, but if someone else wants them she's happy to find other things. Not a post stating what I'm buying or how much, I'll do a real one in the main thread

Thoughts on Magic Items:
Moth bracelet
-like, okay I guess. Situational spell with vaguely annoying mechanical downside you have to keep track of in case you fight an undead. It’s just kind of like...why.

Fish bracelet
-freedom of movement but only under water, very cool! Flavorful downside as well

Bone bracelet
-stronk teef. Downside fits flavorfully, and the desperate jade disadvantaged reroll is a cool touch

Underwater Pacifist
-the item has a good idea, but I don’t like the “and they get advantage against you.” It pushes the downside over the line from “I won’t be able to help much,” to “I will actually just die and am weighing down the team.”
-also sad it benefits the group much more to have anyone other than Steam wear it for a swim speed and amphibious

Checkered Cloak of Sweet Air
-sick. High marks all around

Crow Cloak
-also sick, provided you get to attempt the save against Bane and not just eat it. Downside is flavorful, but I am a little concerned by the extra ability “if in warfare”
We did ant war I, I’m actively not interested in war II

Chair
-fukken sick. Little sad it’s not a bean bag and two people can’t exist on it at a time, but in general extremely cool

Egg
-random spell, huh. Well, as long as you get to choose targets after knowing what spell is being cast it’s usable. If you gotta just point and pray, the power deviation on us getting dicked by that is a little high for my taste

Ghost face
-extremely cool idea, fukken sick

Monstrous Love
-if you didn’t want it to be sexual towards monsters, don’t include the line of “you can viably mate with monsters.” Just like, don’t even acknowledge that that’s a possible thing, and if I asked for that be like “are...are you sure? Like, if you’re really devoted to that we can but like...??????”
-otherwise v cool. Not crazy about the forced hug on a nat 1, feel like that should be up to the player in the moment, but whatev

2 purse
-is v cool, has some fun potential to play with

Fox hood
-also very cool, fun play on the little red riding story with wolves and such

Prism Rose
-actually nuts, access to spells so far above the power curve I can see why moth bracelet is pretty meh

Brand Ring
-very cool in concept, interested to see how it do in play. Flavorful drawback that still has impact, nicely done

Scarf
-it’s neat, has good flavor and works nicely for translating in the area we got it. Good

Snek
-has some fun effects, mostly feels like it’ll be plot relevant later on but I like it’s steez
