Retheolse Endhewor

Game NameRetheolse Endhewor
Game SystemPathfinder
ThemeUnlikely heroes, divine conflict, and maybe even saving the world!
FlavourAdventure, adventure, and more adventure!

Plot SummaryRetheolse Endhewor. A tournament for adventurers run by a few wealthy wizards promising rewards beyond most people's wildest dreams. It takes a lot to get in, and the six teams who managed to do so are ready to test every aspect of themselves to win. The goal is to collect four keys hidden around Golarion and put them all together. It won't be easy, considering that the wizards who hid the keys could teleport past all of the dangers and back.
You happen to be a member of one of those skilled/lucky teams. You and your compatriots worked harder than all of the others to get in, because you're not exactly what most people would call "hero material." Why? Because you are old. Very old. Some would even call you venerable. But so are your friends, and you know you can win this thing. You all have your own motivations, and everyone you will meet has their own motivations. Everyone they have ever met has their own motivations as well, and eventually it just might lead to the motivations of entities who have the power to do much much more than enter a contest. And with motivation and power, come those who will take advantage of it to further their own even worse goals.

Why are the PCs so OLD? Hi, I'm MurderInParidise. I was sitting at the dinner table when I got the idea for a campaign where the player characters were all elderly people. Part of me was thinking about a silly adventure, but then other ideas came, and this evolved into what I am hoping we will play. Heroes (who don't care how old they are,) saving more than just the world. So if you want to go from the team in a contest that nobody believes in, to a band of heroes who's influence extends to the gods, then this is the game for you! And that's just the tip of the iceberg!

Application OutlineName:
Race: Core, Standard, and Advanced are allowed. If you feel that you should be able to play another race, don't hesitate to ask!
Age: I'll include a helpful link to the page where it shows how old venerable members of each race are. www.d20pfsrd.com/alignment-description/description/
Class: Core, Base, Alternate, Hybrid, and Unchained. No Psonics or Occult, please don't ask.
Level: 6
Wealh:16 000 GP.
Stats: The stat mods for venerable characters are a bit extreme, so I am modifying them for this campaign. After all, you're not just random senior citizens, you were good enough to get into Retheolese Endhewor!
 

Appearance:
Personality:
Background: If you have lived this long, you've got to have some sort of story!
In addition to this, I'd appreciate if each player could complete a (modified) 10 minute background!
 

Q&ABut venerable characters could literally die of old age at any time!
 

What about the horrible stat mods that venerable characters have to use?

While I didn't know what that was until I clicked the link, the surface layers do seem quite similar! Although, the campaign will be going in a different direction from that, I can tell you that everyone will underestimate our gang of elderly people too!

Really like the idea of an elderly barbarian and/or fighter type coming out of retirement to prove himself one last time.

Just wondering how you feel about the Martial Training feats from Path of War?

Working on a concept in the meantime.

Although we aren't using the classes, I think I could allow the feats in order to have more diverse melee characters. They also look pretty useful!

Oh the temptation to make a party cook specialising in improvised weapons (Equipment tricks, specialising in a Mithral waffle iron naturally) is definitely there. Can't go into battle on an empty stomach after all!

Banewolf: Ever seen Atlantis: The Lost Empire? You're Cookie. He was fairly badass and he ran basically on Lard, Lard, and Bacon.

Name:Hrumph of the Eye
Race: Orc
Age: 75
Class: Cleric of Myketa, Community and War Domains.
Appearance: Even at his hulking six foot nine, Hrumph, slightly bent with arthritis, seems less hardy than most Orcs. His skin, once a deep green, has faded to a heavily wrinkled mint shade. His orange eyes are still bright and alive, even beneath the streaked black and grey fur over them. Clothing this frail hulk is a fine coat of strange chain mail. Most chain mail is made of small links of a single color, but this coat is interwoven with much larger links in a diamond pattern that are made of alternating rings of silver, gold, and copper, and at the left shoulder, in a diamond pattern, are two rubies, an emerald, and a sapphire, the metals and gems form the base of the coat's enchantment. In the left palm of his gauntlets is welded a silver medallion with the inlay of a black and white longspear.
At his back hangs a small, round, steel shield rimmed in copper, with a device of a sun with a single, large, topaz in the center. At his left hip hangs a simple, dulled scabbard of steel, from which juts a fine black wooden hilt with a brass cross-guard.

@KarlCullinane Orcs are actually on the standard list for D20psfrd, so go right ahead!

Yes, but what about the other monstrous orc races that are listed under the Bestiary (think these may be third-party)....some have racial HD. I was tossing around an idea using the Orog race.

Hm, Orogs look a little too powerful for my liking. It is mostly the racial hit die- not to mention the extra skill points and feats.
