Crypt of the Everflame

Game NameCrypt of the Everflame
Game SystemPathfinder
ThemeComing of Age, Crypt Crawl,
FlavourBegin with tradition, add a dash of hazing, sprinkle with undead to taste, and drop in a new DM "For Science"


Plot SummaryThe town of Kassen sits on the banks of the Tourondel River in Fangwood, a stopover for traders going up and down the river, and a safe rest point for any who dare to brave the wilds of the forest. Few stay in Kassen, however, and it remains a small and tight-knit community that holds firmly to their traditions and lore.

One of the most important traditions is the Crypt of the Everflame, the tomb of their founder Ekat Kassen and the final battleground where he took on his old friend-turned-bandit Asar Vergas. The Crypt, honored as the final resting place of Ekat and those who died with him in defense of the town, holds an Eternal Flame above the tomb of Ekat Kassen where travelers might find warmth in the wilderness. The Crypt stands as a memorial to the difficulties the town faced as it set down roots.

Every autumn some of the townsfolk make a pilgrimage to the crypt, lighting a ceremonial lantern at the eternal flame and bringing it back to town to burn through the winter, a testament to their prided resilience.

This year the task falls to a group of young townsfolk, a coming of age ceremony and a taste of adventure before entering adulthood. They have all received plenty of warning and time to prepare as the day of the ceremony approaches, truly a great honor as only the best and brightest of the youngfolk are selected for such an important and arduous task.


The DMHeya, I'm Magic, or RMP, or Rainbow, whatevers easier to type. I've been on this site for about a year now and enjoyed every minute of it, I'm also particularly fond of the Pathfinder system and Golarion setting as a whole.

That said, this is the first time I've ever DM'd. I have experience in non-tabletop roleplaying but I've come to realize this is a very different flavor. This is something of an experiment for me, and as such it will probably be slow, I've opted to run the Pathfinder Module "Crypt of the Everflame" as an introductory adventure both for the characters, and for myself as a DM.

So if none of that scares you off, I'd be glad to have you!


The PlayersI would prefer a couple of more experienced players to be patient and help me get the hang of things, that said I'm not opposed to anyone newer.

Application
Name:
Age:
Gender:
Race:
Class:
Alignment:

Relation to Kassen: Born and raised here? Have family you've been living with? Come to study under the various Mentors that live here? The adventure is a coming of age, so characters must have been living in Kassen for at least a year or more! It wouldn't do to have a stranger execute such an important town tradition.
Personality:
Appearance: Describe them for me, give me a sense of them! I've never been one for Play-bys but if you also have a picture you'd like to include then feel free, but I want to see some words too.

  • All Paizo is allowed, I use this site, and Advanced Playtest Classes are permitted. No third party please, but I'd be willing to consider if you have a very good reason. Same goes for Psionics, I'll consider them if the rest of the character is a solid, well thought out concept.
  • Starting Level 1
  • 20 Point Buy Stats
  • Average Gold +20g
  • 2 Traits each
  • Post rate of 2-3/week minimum
  • Looking for 4-6 players. We'll see how interest pans out.
  • Due Date will be one week, May 23rd, at minimum. May potentially be longer, and I will notify everyone if that is the case.
  • If this goes well I would like to play it out into the rest of the Price of Immortality campaign arc, or into another module depending on what the players want. We'll cross that bridge when we get there, but keep in mind this might turn into a full campaign.
  • Please let me know if you've played the module before! It won't hurt your chances one way or the other, I would just like to know.
