Yeohven: Fall from Grace

APPLICATION STATUSCLOSED, stay tuned

Game NameYeohven: Fall from Grace

Game SystemDnD 5e

ThemeIntrigue, action, adventure, drama: A world needs heroes, will you answer the call?

FlavourRealistic, dark, serious tones, with levity and light heartedness to keep things interesting and fun. Some very early steampunk elements

Plot SummaryAbhain Calmir, Ab’Cal to locals, is the capital city of the human country of Seth’elan. The economic hub between the Dwarven Republic of Diamhjart and the Elven Kingdom of Naofial. Founded nearly 300 years ago as neutral ground, the city of Ab’Cal has drawn various realms’ peoples with the prospects of work and trade.

However, tensions run high between the dwarves and elves, with constant mediation from Seth’elanian delegates, and international interests from the Tieflings, the Dragonborn, and more, all risking to dip the region into a vast war.

To the people in Ab’Cal this matters little, as the bright, mid-summer's afternoon brings shoppers to life at the Sobrahn Bazaar in the heart of the city, where locals and visitors from abroad seek a little fun, with the definition of that word meaning a vast many things to numerous people.

Additional Information
This will be my second game DMing on RPG Crossing. You can take a look at my first (and still going) campaign, Scales of War, to get an idea of how I do things. This will be my first original campaign world. I wanted to play in a sandbox where I made most of the rules, and could scratch my creative itch. I wanted a very “real” feeling world, with lots of tensions and political and social issues at play, and for the world itself to feel like events were occurring even without the players acting on certain things. So, welcome to that experiment. Haha.

Posting frequency: ideal is 2-3/week, but I understand we all have lives, just communicate you're status as best you can. I'm open to what interested players are willing to do, or capable of doing. Communication is pretty big to me. If you can let me know that you may be away, or that you’re not interested, or not feeling something, I want to work with you on making the experience more beneficial for you. With that in mind, usually if I have a prompt for an action, I’ll give the player 2-3 days to respond before I auto-pilot things to keep the game moving. I always want to get a sense of what the character can be so I make logical choices that you character would make in those situations. It makes things go smoother I find.

Setting: Custom world of Yeohven which I’ve made. Got a world map and everything. The initial setting will be Abhain Calmir, a very important, but young city in the country of Seth’elan, on the continent of Farsaidh. If you’re interested in reading some of the World Context and setting, please feel free to peruse the game thread for info.

Looking for Players: I'm looking to fill up my Group C roster. Currently I've got a dwarven paladin looking for friends. Previous players may come in at some point, so I'm looking for 4-5 potential PCs to take on. I like a balanced group, so I won't dismiss a pally if you really want to submit an app for one, but know it'll be an uphill battle.

Characters will begin at Level 2, soon to be level 3.

Ability scores are to be created using a standard array (15, 14, 13, 12, 10, 8), or 5th Edition point buy rules (p. 13 of the PHB, or p. 8 of the free rules).

Characters can be any combination of race or class from the PHB or the free rules, and can come from any background from the book, or one of your own design. You can also use any classes or races from WoTC officially released books/articles.

Please include any ideals, bonds, or flaws that are relevant to your character in his or her background, or personality.

Character begin the adventure about to enter an underground catacomb system in search of a missing halfling and artifact stolen by a clandestine para-military cult of bane. The local thieves guild, Clan Daemanther (mafia family), city watch, and dwarven clan are also searching, and perhaps can be where your character comes from? The story takes place in the city Abhain Calmir (think a cross of like, London/Istanbul). This is the first time your characters have met each other (unless you have a story idea that makes sense), so make the intros count!

Alignment: Only restriction is NO EVIL CHARACTERS.

About the DM
I started playing with 4e as a player. I've played Iron Kingdoms Role Playing game, and am currently GMing a PbP for that game system, as well as playing in others. I've started playing in these forums in multiple games, but this is my first foray as a DM, and it excites/terrifies me. I'm a sucker for a good story, and for a story with substance and hooks. I gravitate more to roleplaying and intrigue, but a good fight is nice to always get the blood pumping. I'm also guilty of injecting film/tv references within my stories or roleplay, so forgive me if that takes you out of character or story. I try to make it impactful and interesting as best I can.


Start of GameRight away.

Application Deadline: Sunday, March 17th

Early steampunk means that trains are publicly being developed, technology and the use of steam are a burgeoning field that is growing in popularity, but magic is still considered the golden standard for combat and applied utility. There are no airships...

...yet.

Right now I'd be fine with the hexblade, although I'd have to consider how it works within my setting, but that's just a responsibility on my end, and I'd work with you if there were any issues with it.

Question on weapons. Would the official list of weapons in the PHB be the only allowed weapons in the game, or could I would with you about an idea I have?

I'd like to stick with weapon list, but open to all ideas.

I understand. My idea was a monk with claw like weapons that retract into his bracers. This would be a simple mechanical weapon that does 1d4 like the monk damage table in the PHB. I was hoping to fit it in your early steam punk Era world.

I think that's workable. We can look into it for sure.

Kipp 'Darkluck' Acheron

The Unluckiest man in Farsaidh
Temptation is my mistress and we aren't in a healthy relationship
RaceClassHomelandBackgroundThemeSheet
Half-Elf (drow)WarlockThe SeaPirate123WIP

Appearance: Kipp wears to loose fitting clothes of a man of the sea with a long jacket and ornate boots he picked up somewhere in his travels. He often wears his hair over his pointy elf like ears but when he pulls it back the mix in his heritage is somewhat obvious, of course the fact that his skin is black as coal pretty much makes that a moot point.
Personality: Kipp is a light hearted pirate who has a sweet spot for anything valuable despite the fact that just about anytime he that things are going his way they take a sour turn. The pirate has gotten the name Darkluck from his fellow crew for he always seems to be in the wrong place at the right time, whether it is when fate pulls him into some intense drama or walking under a balcony at the absolute wrong time. His luck stinks. Despite this Kipp has a pretty upbeat personality but tends to be a bit hesitant when something seems to good to be true.

9th street's Tattered Angel

Appearance: Well, here's the thing see. Pat's clothes aren't exactly what you'd call impressive. They've gotta be oh, third hand at best, and we're not talking gentle hands at that. Still and all, while the threads are pretty... threadbare, there's still something about the guy. You definitely couldn't say he dresses well. No, definitely not. He does look, I dunno, at home? I s'pose. I've never seen him look uncomfortable. Put him up next to a prince and for all there's patches keepin' his ass in his trousers he'll still be hard to keep your eyes off. Maybe it's not the clothes. Could be the hair. Like a mop of spun copper it is. Never seems to get dirty either, and that's sayin' something. 'Cause I'll tell you, he doesn't keep his hands clean, that's for sure. Or it could be the eyes. You never seen eyes so green. Here, he's just round the corner now, I'll introduce you. I tell you, you're gonna love the guy, everybody seems to.

Personality: See, I told you. That's why they call him tattered. The other part's easy enough to explain too. Reason he looks that way is he's always giving money away. I bet if he'd have just kept a hand on half the coin he's scraped together over the years he'da been outta this dump in no time flat. Never seems to though. Always has just enough to eat, although he's looking a bit skinny these days, and more than enough that a couple of bit here and there to the street kids hereabouts don't seem to hurt him none. Tell you what though, try not to get on his bad side. The lad's got himself a tongue could strip the paint off the side of a building from the far side of the street. Sure does hate it when the out-of-porter-ers try to slap up the girls hereabouts, and you've never seen a man so angry if they think to mess with the kids. Do right by him and those he calls his though, you've a friend for life. There's a thing that's rare in itself.

I'm open to it. Haven't had a good look at it, but if you're open to potential adjustments if it seems to break elements of the game, then feel free to run with it. I will say there is a sorcerer already slotted, so if you had an alt in mind as well, that might be helpful.

Open to that as well, although the flavour may be a little different in this world setting, but could be fun for sure.
