The Mummy's Mask

Game NameThe Mummy's Mask
Game SystemDnD 5e
ThemeHeroic Fantasy.
FlavourDelving in a pseudo-∆gyptus.
Plot SummaryAnubis' Needle stands proud in Wati's necropolis, greeting mourners as they come to entomb their loved ones in the famous burial site. Seventeen hundred years ago, while the Anubian priest Nefru Shepes began the process of rebuilding the city, along with sealing away the dead part of the city from the living and consecrating the necropolis, a stone from the heavens streaked thru the sky, plunging into the cool waters of the river Sphinx. Nefru Shepes decreed the celestial event was an omen of favor from the Master of Graves, and he ordered workers to retrieve the stone from the riverbed. Stoneworkers sculpted the meteorite into a capstone for an obelisk to be set in the city' new necropolis as a symbol of Anubis' blessing upon Wati.

The adventure begins in the city of Wati, where the Asp and Crook Rivers converge to create the River Sphinx in southeastern Osirion. The PCs begin in Wati and are acquainted with one another. With the necropolis open by royal decree, the priests of the local temple of Anubis have been tasked with assigning sites for exploration by adventuring companies. Registering is a simple process; there are no background checks or special fees. A priest simply records the name of the company and the names of its members.


Natives worship the Egyptian Pantheon. In place of Common they speak Southron, the trade language of the south.Osirion

Adventurers from the northlands speak Common and worship either the Celtic, Greek or Norse Pantheon. The party needs someone who can speak both Sothron and a language common to all the non-Osirion PCs otherwise there will language barrier.Non-natives

The Wolf and Bear Clans are a Nordic Culture and follow the Norse Pantheon.
The various eastern tribes follow the Celtic culture.
The western city-states follow the Greek Pantheon.
Osirion follows the Egyptian Pantheon.

I presume this is a simple - see bad guy, hit bad guy, collect reward - game.

Dibs on Gnome Wizard.

I'll withdraw my application. In the end Beleth didn't fully came to life, and I wasn't comfortable with the directions it was going. Have fun with the game!

Application
Name: Ulfur, the Changed
Culture: Norse (Islandic)
Race: Human (Variant if allowed)
Background: Sailor or Solider (Trying to go for a Viking flavour here; merc vet could also fit here - I have no idea.)
Class: Paladin (Oath will be decided upon level 3 depending on character growth; currently thinking redemption or a re-flavouring of conquest to be closer to a crusader, but not quite. If those aren't allowed, then vengeance kind of works.)
Alignment: TN
Deity: Fenrir (Death/War/TN) (There is no change domain, but if there was, Fenrir would be that.)

Application
right-aligned image
Name: Darra "The Animal" Gorunn

Race: Dwarf

Class: Druid

Personality: Darra enjoys the company of nature and animals over people since that is his true calling. Darra is a dwarf of few words but those chosen few words are usually kind words. He is unusually peace-loving for a dwarf and due to his kind and mellow demeanour he is often mistaken for a short human. But the dwarf blood runs strong within Darra and his dwarvish characteristics manifest overtly when Darra is angered. One may consider him bipolar to an extent because of the stark shift character that happens when Darra gets into a fit of mindless rage. It is due to this lurking rage and past episodes that Darra consciously prefers to maintain peaceful demeanour at all times.

Appearance: Just under 5 feet tall, light brown skin and black unkempt hair, Darra's appearance is not large but has a degree of mystery to it. His overalls made from a combination of fur, feathers and plant fibres clearly show his chosen path as a wandering druid. His eyes have an inquisitive and deep look. When interacting with people, Darra often makes people a little uncomfortable due to his long and unflinching eye-contact, almost as if he is searching his target for something and will not rest till he finds it. But his limited, kind words and generous nature counter this discomfort that any counterparty may witness.

Background: Folk Hero

Personality Traits: If someone is in trouble, Iím always ready to lend help.

Ideal: Sincerity. Thereís no good in pretending to be something Iím not.

Bond: I worked the land, I love the land, and I will protect the land.

Flaw: The people who knew me when I was young know my shameful secret, so I can never go home again.

Martyn I have a concept based on an image but need to run it past you prior to fleshing out fully. See my PM.

Interesting. I'll put something together.
Character Application WIP
left-aligned image

Name: Vuldrung Valdenmar
Background:Clan Artisan
Race: Dwarf (Mountain)
Class: Fighter (Defense School)
Motivation: Rediscover old armor and weapon forging techniques.
Appearance: About as pale as you've ever seen a dwarf be, Vuldrung is a light-skinned, red haired, and blue eyed example of dwarvenkind. He's fairly choleric as far as his moods go, but he has great pride in his craftsmanship and work, which he happens to be wearing and carrying.
APPLICATION PENDING

Are you looking to use/convert Golarion deities for divine spellcasting purposes (Cleric domains), or are you wanting D&D's existing pantheon?

I'm using the AP but not the full setting.

The Wolf and Bear Clans are a Nordic Culture and follow the Norse Pantheon.
The various eastern tribes follow the Celtic culture.
The western city-states follow the Greek Pantheon,
Osirion follows the Egyptian Pantheon.
