I've just accepted 7 out of the 25 applicants that came pouring in. I'm going to head to bed for the night but I'll try to get character sheets put up for you to tinker with tomorrow or whenever you log in. Congrats! Feel free to introduce yourselves to each other. I don't want to disclose any info that you want to keep secret from the group for now or step on any toes.

Hello all!  I'll be your resident satyr charisma caster :).  I'll start as a board, then take 3 levels of warlock (pact if the chain/raven queen), then sorcerer (shadow) for the rest of the game!

Hullo, folks.  I will be you miniature miner, a self-exiled kobold sorceror.  Draconic type, of course.

Heya!  I'm your Satyr Hexblade with a pact with something from the Shadowfell.  Interesting to see that I'm not the only Satyr around, and that we're similar in a lot of ways.  I plan on taking the full levels of Hexblade, with the Pact of the Blade subtype.  Should be interesting to see how having two similar characters plays out, even though you'll end up better at the spellcasting than I will.

It'll also be interesting to see with your stronger focus on the shadow, how much of the Satyr's natural party life style you keep.  Trystan should hopefully be a life of any party we get in.

Looks like we are an interesting mix. Lets reclaim the land from the Humanoids. You'll all make great subjects for my new kingdom.

Greetings. I'll be playing a plain old human, Tempest cleric of Valkur. What's a sea god's priest doing in a mining town? Only the gods know for sure...

Looking forward to the game!

I just created character sheets for you guys. Let me know if it's working right on your end; I initially missed the "let them edit their own sheet" button so I'm hoping I got it fixed now.

All good in my end for character sheet. Maybe make a character creation thread though. That way you can outline the rule stats you want us to use for creation

Re: Out of Character Chat
Wow, a lot of Warlocks.  Makes you wonder what so significant about this town that all of our patrons are interested in having us there.

Re: Out of Character Chat
Still working on a few things for my sheet. Will definitely be done tomorrow. It's perhaps possible I have a healing spell or two. Then again, one still must be able to do a little ass kicking as well!

Re: Out of Character Chat
Hmm, not many satyr pictures to choose from.  I have one up in the character description though.  Character done.  Could I possibly get word wrap turned on for my character sheet?

This picture was about as close to a Satyr as I could get.

Re: Out of Character Chat
I've got a lot of small items of business, so here it goes rapid fire style:

All but two of you have filled out your character sheets so I'm thinking of starting the story soon. You know who you are so please work on them and contact me with any questions or issues. I can help build your characters if you like.

I turned word wrap on for your character sheet, Skia, but it tweaked the format a little. Let me know what you think. I'm okay with it if you are.

Do you guys want to start out knowing each other or do you want to meet in-character? Or we could do an in-between where you're in couples and trios that join up at the start.

I've got four adventures for you guys to pick from as your first: a haunted lighthouse, a neighboring town under siege by goblinoids, lizardfolk kidnapping trade caravans for ransom, or necromancers raising a small army at a different neighboring town graveyard. Which one do you guys vote for?

And how is everybody doing in real life?

Re: Out of Character Chat
Lizardfolk mission might be interesting.  A rival tribe who needs culling no doubt!

I'm not above making lizard jerky.  >:)


I'm kinda liking the pairs and trios and then we all run into one another personally.

Re: Out of Character Chat
Rik'arial and I have a little background together and I figured we would be starting together.

As for the adventure I'd vote for the Goblins or the Lizardmen. Lizardmen could be interesting given that we have Rik'arial.


Real life. Working and got the fam. So alls good

Re: Out of Character Chat
I'm just about done with my character sheet. Just putting a few details in on character description and whatnot. I am flexible on whether we meet in game or know each other. I do prefer that the initial meetup and decision to adventure together not be too drawn out. Perhaps we all have the same NPC in our background or something like that.

I'd vote for the lighthouse mission, as keeping sailors safe is one of the priorities of Greyson's god.

Real life? Not bad. Still working at home FT due to pandemic, Bills are 6-2. Can't complain.

Re: Out of Character Chat
Glad to hear that you guys are doing well.

I'm also starting a Local Lore and a Regional Lore thread to keep my research straight. It won't all be applicable (or complete) but some of it will be. It's up to you to figure out what matters to the plot. Think of it as general knowledge your characters would have.

Also, feel free to ask questions.
