Re: Play Dates by mtowlemtowle, 10 Mar 2011 19:38

The points here are scaled for D&D3e and 4e games and are used for extra ability scores and feats. Most recently I have used them as "Background Points" in the REIGN system so players can buy wealth, status, followers and the like.

The next planned session is Monday, October 18th at Chip's house. Please be there

Re: The next session is.. by BhaumBhaum, 15 Oct 2010 19:18

I am guessing they expect the players would "hire" the positions that the players don't fill themselves (or even all 8).

Re: Kingdom Discussions by BhaumBhaum, 11 Oct 2010 16:34

I dig the city-building aspects & Build points. It'll be interesting to see what happens if "New Ista" expands to include multiple cities.
The modifiers take some tracking, but the notion of having different administrative positions for the city to fill is pretty inspired. I am curious though; there seems to be about 8 positions to fill for a typical campiagn of 4 players, how did the designers envision the extra posistions being filled?

Re: Kingdom Discussions by Dan the SDan the S, 11 Oct 2010 14:25

This coming Monday is fine for me. It actually works out pretty good.

Re: The next session is.. by BhaumBhaum, 07 Oct 2010 13:12

Tomorrow would work. If not tomorrow I think we are a no-go for this week.

For next week, Monday would be ok with me, how about with you all?

Re: The next session is.. by mtowlemtowle, 05 Oct 2010 01:14

I'm in the same boat, Tuesday might work this week as a one-off, though it will be nice to get there earlier. Unfortunately, Tues-Thurs are really my only options this week, and I'll only be able to make it out once.

If luck works against us and we can't get Arcallis going, I was toying with the idea of checking out the BGS at South Campus on Thursday.

Re: The next session is.. by Dan the SDan the S, 04 Oct 2010 22:24

When is the next session? I know it's Brenna's birthday, so tonight's out and Thursday's out for this week and the next. I know tomorrow and Friday were options, and I highly prefer Tuesday remaining unavailable for me, but could make an exception this week.

Let me know.

The next session is.. by BhaumBhaum, 04 Oct 2010 14:54

Read the summary.

Herbie!!!!! by PPaellaPPaella, 29 Sep 2010 15:31

It seems that Bhaum may be following the same type of path that Conan took in the first movie, where he starts out evil, doing what needs to be done for survival because of where he is/was and the environment he is in (minus the breeding part). Now, with his friends and Illustra, he is tearing away from the brutal past and moving towards a more "normal" focus of neutrality and protecting his friends and interests instead of being the evil bastard that he would still be in his homelands. It would be a pity to see Illustra ganked by "Thulsa Doom" to drive Bhaum on a quest for revenge/redemption, but it would be an interesting hook. I just don't see Bhaum remaining "evil" for the sake of an alignment. Brutal? Sure, but becoming softer when it comes to companions and the surroundings. I doubt he would ever be "good" except in the eyes of Illustra or some other interest in the future.

For the time begin, I though of other things he can be doing while the city is being re-built. He can be training the men in combat and arms and picking out the exceptional men for special posts (promotions to unit leadership or royal guards) on behalf of Alexis.

Some ideas on Bhaum... by BhaumBhaum, 23 Sep 2010 16:47

Use this thread to talk about your characters, ideas for the campaign, directions and adventures you'd like to see, and any other general campaign questions.

Here is the map of the campaign area

Check the Fantasy Craft houserules section of the wiki for updates, errata, and rule changes.

Of note:

  • Additional ability score points earnable by doing work on your character
  • Goblins, hobgoblins, and orcs are the same race, just different sub-species.
  • The Power of Fear - the horrors and darklords have an insidious ally in the despair inducing power of fear

In this thread we will track the rebuilding of Ista using the modified Kingmaker rules.

Check the Fantasy Craft houserules section for details on updated rules.

It was great to see Lucas (Tom) make it back into the fold for the rebuilding of Ista! It's time to make an empire for the snake god… er, for the glory of the Dragons… er, for the Halflings!!! Now to fill in the rest of those royalty positions so I can get back to being a Royal Assassin and not some slimy politician. Waitaminute… snakes… slimy…. maybe I DO want to be a politician!

Looking forward to Thursday!

Ahh…. 'tis the season for roleplaying! Bhaum is making a comeback in the Arcalis world along with a mechanical golem and his friends, Lucas, Alexis and Illustra. I can't wait to see where their journeys to rebuild the legacy of Ista takes them!

Atlas

in discussion The World of Arcallis / Updates » Atlas

I added some names to the atlas map as well as some squares that show the locations of the smaller maps I have made. Everything west of Thera is part of my friend Martin's world. All I know of it is what I played through with my character and some talks we had (which is actually a lot, but not very detailed).

Marty, get in touch so we can do some work on the world!

Atlas by mtowlemtowle, 30 Apr 2010 01:44

Added the first couple sessions. I am going by memory and I am sure some of the timing is screwed up but I remember the highlights well. I welcome Viggo, Ruin, and Simeon to edit things or, better yet, add some player notes of how they remember things.
