Age of Desolation: Gallaht

Game NameAge of Desolation: Gallaht
Game SystemDnD 5e
ThemeSurvival in harsh environment. Exploring an unknown, post-apocalyptic fantasy world.
FlavourDark Sun, Mad Max, Battlestar Galactica
Plot Summary
The Story...
 

Game Settings
  • Your GMs: MoldyNolds and cottontailwind as co-GMs. Hello!
  • Number of Players: 3-6
  • Application Deadline: 11:59pm January 5th, 2024
  • Game Length: We're looking to divide the game into several chapters, with each chapter lasting about 6-12 months and having a clear beginning and end. At the end of each of these story beats we'll check-in with the group and provide narrative opportunities for players to drop out or switch PCs and recruit new players, but folks are absolutely invited to continue through each chapter.
  • Players At The Table: Play-by-post gaming can make traditional gaming safety tools like Lines & Veils and The X Card delayed. In order to create an inclusive, safe space for everyone to feel comfortable we strongly encourage you to come to us or a site admin whenever anyone does anything that makes you feel uncomfortable. This counts for the application process as well as throughout the entire game.
  • OOC: We'll use Discord to stay in contact between posts, but it is not required.

  • Campaign Setting: This game uses the recently released Arora: Age of Desolation campaign setting, which adds a new, dangerous non-Faerunian world to explore, and expands on gameplay mechanics to emphasize Exploration as the third gaming pillar to complement Roleplay and Combat. The Arora: Age of Desolation campaign setting is made by Ghostfire Gaming and is available to purchase as a player, but certainly not a requirement to apply or play. The new mechanics include: alternate PC race and character creation; additional options for PC subclasses, feats, and backgrounds; expanded mechanics for exploring and surviving in new and dangerous worlds, and more.

  • Posting Rate: 1 substantial post every 7-10 days
  • Posting Standards: We're asking for a minimum of one substantive, well-written post per week. Additional posts to continue sidebars while waiting for the scene to advance are of course encouraged. Not a full book report in every post, but two sentences with bare bones stage directions just ain’t gonna cut it. We put a lot of time and effort into the games we run to present to players with a decently-polished product and would like a return on that investment. We're part of the game too and we want to have fun just as much as you do! If the group moves at a faster pace we’ll happily endeavor to keep up. If for any reason (work, life, you just need a break, whatever!) you can’t keep up with 1 post/week please, please just let us know. We’ve been there and are happy to work together to find a solution, whether that be slowing down the game a bit, putting your PC in the background, handing control to the GM, or even removing your PC from the game if you feel that is the best course of action. Those that consistently can’t keep up with the pace of the group may be asked to retire their character.
  • Post Structure: We'll share a basic posting template that includes a space for OOC notes and basic PC stats.

Thank you both! The lion's share of the credit for the intro story goes to co-GM cottontailwind.

We would say very strongly encouraged. We have found Discord to be far more convenient for quick questions and OOC group communication than forum posting. If there is a specific reason someone is unable to use Discord then let us know and we can see if there is a way to work around it.

this looks fun! Looked into the Hearth Domain Cleric which seems to suit what I'd want to do. One question about it I do have, I noticed that the Hearthmate's ability to regain additional hitpoint is done on a Long rest which....seems odd. Would it be okay for this to be allowed for short rests?

Kamış | Wizard - Azathool Application - Complete
"Flow like water, strike like thunder - in every dance of sticks, find the rhythm of your enemy to defeat them."
Words of wisdom from Master Zoh of the Silent Scribes



Concept
How do you make a monk without using the monk class? I've wanted to play a "Shaolin Monk type" Eskrima fighter for a long time, so here goes, using Bladesinger as a base.



Name: Kamış
Class: Wizard (Bladesinger @ 2nd) Swap skills & single weapons to be more suitableTCoE Customizations, I expect to stay Wizard to L10.
Role in Akarsuku: One of the few remaining Peacekeepers, a guardian of Akarsuku against everyday intrusions.

Appearance
right-aligned image
Image created with DALL-E 3

Kamış is very "human" in her appearance, just over five feet tall, slim as a hence her name in the old tongue, Kamışreed and fair-skinned due to many generations of ancestors living underground. Her shaved head highlights the tattoo engraved on her forehead, a mark of her dedication to her old teacher.

Usually wearing a simple thick canvas Martial arts robeGi died orange, her only possessions are contained within a couple of pouches with a bedroll slung over her shoulder.

She always carries her quarterstaffJo stick, a short staff XGtE - Spellbook as runes engraved around the staff, and as it's a staff/rod it is also a spell-casting Focusengraved with six lines of silver runes that is used to deadly effect in close combat.

Personality/Goals/Backstory
 


Roleplay hook with Tak
 


Race
Using Age of Desolation rules.

Hello BestTeaMaker and thank you for the words! You are 100% spot on and great catch - it looks like that ability is definitely meant to say Short Rest and not Long Rest. We’ll make sure that’s reflected as Short Rest in our reference material once the game threads are created

The premise reminds me a lot of those old heavy metal animes from the 80s. Looks riveting! Posting interest

Kiepo

Character
Name Kiepo
Age 25
Legacy Race Lizardman/Dragonborn
Character Traits
  • Well Protected
  • Hardy Protection
  • Masterful Aptitude (Cook's Utensils)
  • Poison Resilience
  • Powerful Build
  • Lucky
  • Surge of Speed
  • Natural Weapon (Tail)
Class Hearth Domain Cleric 1
Background Caver
Role Hearthtender
Personality Generous, Insistent on making sure you eat thirds
Ideal Working together makes survival possible
Bond Migrated to this place at a very young age with family, very attached to the area
Flaw Trusting to a fault
Goal Learn to be a master hearthtender

StoryAppearance
A blue-scaled mix of Lizardman and Draconic with long limbs and a stocky build. He often makes trips out into the area to find supplies and ensure a good meal in the evening. His signature dish is a hearty thick stew using milk and local root vegetables.

Background
 




ConceptDecided on this character after seeing the Hearth Domain be an interesting rest-based healing subclass of Cleric. That combined with the themes of survival, and feeling inspired by sherpas, wanted to create a character who is the camp mom/dad of the group.

This sounds like a fun setting to dive into! I'll do some percolating on a potential character pitch and circle back for a full application!

Also, with the Cinyusu being an isolated community, it feels like this could be a great opportunity to have PCs with closely connected relationships. I imagine they'll be some discussion around that once the final party is assembled, but just putting it out there that I'd be very down for playing a character with immediate family relationships with other PCs (and would be willing to adjust racial features to align that), if that's conducive to the DMs' intent?
