Land of Shalm: Path of Chaos

LAND OF SHALM
Path of Chaos
3.5 Edition

FlavourDark and Gritty, Vast world to explore.

Plot SummaryThe Land of Shalm has been in peace for almost two-century now. Before the Golden Age had started the land was in complete darkness. Evil had ruled the lands with the people in constant fear of if this day could be their last. A group of adventurers followed Shalm, they went out and conquered the land from the evil one, Raspian. With Raspian fallen, his leaders and followers fled and the Land and people of Shalm began to heal. The people decided to honor the great leader and name the land after him. Shortly after the battle, the people wanted to make Shalm their king, but he refused and left and was never heard from again. King Rupert Khalil has ruled the lands for the past 60 years during this time of peace. But over the past 20 years, chaos has started to creep back into Shalm. There are rumors of a new evil force beginning to build and that war is about to start. There are also rumors about King Rupert and how he is acting. No one has seen the King of late and his daughter Eve is the spokesman in front of the people. The King is said to be switching between being normal and fits of rage. Only those closest to him know what is going on, and they are not speaking. Sadly the King has no heir as his daughter Eve never married.

The King and his court are looking for adventurers to go out and look into these rumors and if they find evil; to banish it once and for all. There are also talks of an ancient artifact hidden around Shalm get free from this darkness. Many groups are looking for this, some evil some good. The King wants this artifact found and brought to him.


Map of Shalm
The map is very large. Here is the link to it.

Character Creation
Looking for people able to post 2 to 3 times a week. I will check daily but might not be able to post on Tuesdays and Sundays.

Start at Level 1.

Starting PC's use a 32 point buy cap unless their race has a level adjustment (LA), then see the LA chart. No "base" score higher than 18 before racial additions/subtractions, and you cannot lower a score below 10 to gain points for use in another ability (feel free to do it for fun, however). Level adjustment races are allowed via the point buy system. No creature with an LA >+4

Characters will start at level 1 with 500 GP to spend.
Hit Points - Max at first two levels
Traits and Flaws: You are allowed to take 1 Trait and 1 Flaw if you choose to. It is not required. If you do this, let me know.

Here are some house rules for the game. I recommend that you check them out.

 

 


I have access to the majority of 3.5 Edition Books. If you use anything that is not the Player Handbook or the DMG please note it in your character sheet.

For Languages: Each character starts with 2 languages and gets a bonus one for each 2 bonus point of intelligence. But you do not get penalized for a negative modifier.

EG. Bob has an intelligence modifier of +3 so he knows 3 languages. Larry has an intelligence modifier of -2 but he still knows 2 languages.

HP is max first level.

Start with 500 GP

If you Pick human you get a bouns Feet.

Allow one Flaw and one Trait

For Skills:
Athletics=Jump, Climb & swim
Acrobatics=Balance, Tumble
Disable Device=Disable Device & Open Lock
Stealth=Move silent & Hide
Perception=listen, spot & search
You can rename Climb to Athletics & delete Jump & Swim, & then do the same for each of the rest, it will make your skill ranks MUCH easier for you to track

Interested.

Just to clarify, if we choose Human we get an additional bonus feat plus the normal human bonus feat?

Sounds fun.

Not real clear on the books allowed for character creation? So only PHB and DMG? Or any published?

I am curious about the Land of Shalom, can you tell a bit about the world? Sounds kind of Middle Eastern.

The Land fo Shalm is set up like your typical medieval hierarchy system. The land is vast and has all types of influence on it. The land is coming out of a dark time and is a period of renaissance. New ideas, philosophies, and technologies are being talked about on a daily basis.

So we should delete the skills you have mentioned and ONLY put ranks in the "Main" category of skills? Right?
(So no climb,jump,swim, but full ranks in Athletics instead? If so, Ill need to edit my skills selections above, ty)

NVM, I guess it doesn't really matter at this point. Will get straight if/when accepted

You are correct. Get rid of the others and put it into athletics. But I will make sure sheets are correct if you are selected for the game.

Name: Dashniell "Dash" Doyle

Race: Anything they want to be!



Age: Some days it's 13 and some days it's 80



Class: Rogue

Role: Support, sneakiness, backstabbing (the good kind) and much more later on!

Character Progression: Eventually moving into Chameleon (Races of Destiny) and perhaps Fortune's Friend (Complete Scoundrel)

Basic Background: A different story every day – the last person that asked got a story involving Changelings and a majestic half-red dragon mother…



Appearance: No-one has ever seen Dash's true face, except perhaps his parents. One day he's a lanky half-elf cleric with a bad case of facial warts while the very next day, or sometimes even the next hour, she's a dangerously curved Nymph with the capacity to reduce men (and certain-inclined woman) to stuttering messes with a wink and giggle. Suffice it to say, Dash is a person of a thousand faces and they spend every day coming up with a few dozen more.

Just want to clarify a couple of things.

1.) You want applicants to do a point buy starting at like in Pathfinder10pts rather than the normal 8pts of 3.5?

2.) You want us to use the listed skills. We're just condensing some skills to the 'new' ones to cut down on how many skills we're trying to keep track of ranks for, not changing anything else related to skills or skill ranks?
