The Gate Pact

Game NameThe Gate Pact
Game SystemDnD 5e
ThemeAwakening all the gods
FlavourGlobe trotting
Plot SummaryThe gods of Aberth have always been distant, preferring, or maybe needing to act through their avatars. It's been over a hundred years since the death of the last avatar, and with his passing the powers of the churches have waned. The magic of the clerics behaves oddly, and disease is spreading. The good news comes from the messengers of Orison, the First Lighthouse is lighting itself, this unpredictable phenomenon indicates a time of great change in the world.

Previously The Lighthouse lit before the discovery of continents, the invasion of the devils, the disappearance of Wyuutin, and before the three reappearance of the Empire. Perhaps this cycle is fortelling the return of the gods.

I'll be updating this post on details concerning the world of Aberth, the only things that aren't available choices though are Eladrin, and Warforged. Certain other exotic races are limited, but allowed.



Map of Aberth


Continents
 

 

 

 

 

 

DemographicsAasimar - Very rare, they can be born into human families.
Centaur - Trusted traders, they live in the city of Meadow, just south of Viol.
Changeling - Spies from Orison, they're specially bred humans who can change their appearance easily.
Dragonborn - Natives to Skittervane. They have not flourished, especially after the New Empire invaded Wyndham.
Dwarf - Stalwart travelers, Mountain dwarves make their homes either in The Mountain's Face, or one of the triplet kingdoms. Hill dwarves live in south west Abis, and mainly specialize in sailing and fishing.
Loxodon - Spiritual followers of the sun. Their priests have retained their powers of healing, they follow a different pantheon.
Elf - The largest population of elves are the wood elves of Viol. High elves have been largely wiped out, but still are looked to as advisors. Shadow and dark elves live in the western regions of Skittervane.
Genasi - Super rare, when the old pantheon was in full power there were more, but they died out when the gods faded.
Gnome - Most gnomes live just west of the triplet kingdoms, they are well traveled though.
Goblin - A small race of warriors, many goblins are trying to join the kingdom of Wyndham. They're facing indifference in their efforts.
Halfling - Vindictive xenophobes. Halflings are nomads that move through the generally unpopulated areas of Abis, they keep monsters from building strongholds, but they also tend to attack anything taller than 4 feet on sight.
Hobgoblin - Rebels to the king, they're exiled to the worst parts of the desert.
Kobold - Caretakers of Crckto, they take care of visitors to the tropical town.
Lizardfolk - Scary swamp barbarians. The live in the southwest of Scalia, largely unknown to the world at large.
Auroch(Minotaur) - Worshipers of the moon, they get along well with loxodon. The two races share a pantheon with the tabaxi, so they still have working priests.
Yuanti - Scheming snake people from the north west of Scalia. Rumor has it that they're in contact with the leaders of Orison.
Tabaxi - Nomads of Zelestin, They are always on the move. They were the first to make themselves known to the Skittervane settlers.
Tiefling - Hated devilkin. Nobody trusts a tiefling following the devil invasion.
Triton - Kings under the sea. They have a few cities below the waves, and try not to be involved with other people's business.
Tortle - The cloistered sages of Scalia, they control the eastern regions. They rarely travel.
Human - Humans live everywhere, they originate from Skittervane, and they're still most heavily concentrated there. Many humans died when Charenal went to sleep. Orison is still mostly human.

If you don't see a race on here, just ask, or if you want to know more about a listed race.

Player Application
left-aligned image
Name: Hiram Coldwater
Race: Human (Variant)
Class: Fighter (Champion?)

 

Home Continent: Skittervane

Interest in the Lighthouse: Hiram's interest in the lighthouse is multifaceted. He is interested in the coming changes, whatever those may be. He has to live in this world after all; and whatever these changes may be, they will definitely affect him. Hiram also hopes that by adventuring he might encounter fame. Fame to himself, thereby earning a chance to find his family. And also fame to his trainers, proving to them that they did not waste their efforts on him.

I'm thinking level 2 to start, we'll see how it goes for the end.

Nvm lets start at level 5, let's you be someone mildly locally important if you want.

Is there a application posting deadline?
Starting at level sounds awesome. Do we get the listed starting funds for 5th level per the DMG page 38, Characters starting at levels 5-10 get 500gp + 1d1025gp?
What method will be used for generating stats?
Should we build out the character as part of the application?

Starting gold sounds right, wait until the characters are chosen to build the sheets, or stats.

The Deities are updated, I'll add more of that later too.

I'll be updating the list of factions across the world next, and as part of it I'll add details of the major cities.

If you want me to focus on one spot just ask.
