Rumors abound in a kingdom searching for an heir to the empty throne. Some say that Mezneok had a twin, though no one is sure if he still lives. Some closer to the family say the smaller baby was given up to the shaman’s mate who was a midwife.
Mezneok grew to be a great man in power and in size for he had no equal in strength. Though his demeanor was calm and peaceful, in war his animosity knew no bounds. Many enemies fell under his sword. Those who begged for mercy became his closest servants for he believed, “You should keep your friends close and your enemies closer.” It was this mercifulness that earned him the moniker “The Benevolent Tyrant” from his captives.
No one knew the way the king thought better than his Grand Vizier, Jaspina. She was key in keeping the kingdom in line for she would scry in her spherical crystal and report to the King what she saw.
One mid-autumn day, she looked into her crystal and saw a holy symbol of Weejas and a stick of ivory carved in the likeness of a dragon ending with a gold disk and a ruby. After some extensive research she learned that the object she saw was a rare object of rumored great power. She told the King of the legendary Elven Hilt of Wondrous Blades. She explained to him, “To the west of this kingdom, just beyond Mt. Haurach, is a centuries old ruin of a temple of Weejas. King Boriff was the last of his line and legend says he was buried with it when he was found dead in the lower level of the temple. She told him of the Hilt’s rumored great power, "for why else would someone go to the trouble to hide it? Why else would King Boriff use it as a scepter, a symbol of power?”
King Mezneok and four expertly trained soldiers rode off to the west bound for the temple ruins………none returned. That was two years ago, as of today.
I'm looking for at least four players for this game
(6 players max). If interested, post your intent to join, then consult the Q&A thread of this game for character creation details.
I am sure I am not getting over my head by asking to join this adventure. I got a plethura of character concepts on my mind. Alack and alass most are Pathfinder based... however, trivial abilities mean nothing in the presence of role playing.
Does yoru world have an oriental-like culture? I have wanted to play a female Samurai character, so if monks are ok, could I play one of these noble and focused warriors of the east? You can PM me any back story restrictions including who my lord may be... Or I can compose it myself if you are too busy/believe it is not necessary.
Oh well, pm me or post your character on the Q&A thread and you are in. I'll be posting a game start date as soon as I get at least 3 players (hoping to have 4 when I start). Hope you enjoy playing it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
I'd like to join if that's alright. I'm good with background/backstory on characters once I have a good idea what type of campaign is going to be played and what the other characters are going to be in it. I don't like to go against the average alignment of the group as I've seen that destroy good campaigns quickly.
Let me know what the character restrictions, etc are and I'll get a character made up right away.
