The plan is to try and work with Fantasy Grounds, but I am not optimistic given the recent issues. I won’t spend too much trouble trying to get things working if we have mapping issues. We will use MapTool as a backup, although I’ll have to manage a lot of things on the backend.

MapTool v 1.14.3 can be downloaded from https://github.com/RPTools/maptool/releases/tag/1.14.3 or the link below.

Please note a couple of things:

  • Please take a look at the ‘Read Me First’ section, then scroll down the page to ‘Assets’ (just after the ‘Contributors’ section).
  • Windows users are encouraged to use the MSI (MapTool-1.14.3.msi).
  • Since RPTools is not a “known software publisher” by Microsoft, you will need to click through the prompts to install MapTool and when starting MapTool for the first time you might be prompted to allow network access.  See the download page for more information.

I will be on an hour before game time (11am) to troubleshoot Fantasy Grounds and (if necessary) help everyone setup MapTool.

Looking forward to seeing everyone Smile

Phase 1: Liberate Slaves.

Phase 2: ???

Phase 3: Profit/death


The party has -- for now -- dispatched the orcs and other guardians of the slave pits. We're working on extracting the slaves in hopes of moving them out to freedom and safety. What we know so far:

  • There are at least two orc guards alive (they ran away)
  • There are whole orc tribes in these tunnels or this area, according to the orc that Blaylocke charmed
  • Evil Priestess is still alive and on the loose -- current whereabouts unknown
  • There are two routes out (not counting the sewers) -- the tunnel that the two orcs ran down; and the "back way" that the party came through

What shall we do? Which way shall we go? Will our heroes prevail against the forces of evil? Pitch your ideas and thoughts here.

(Next game session: Sunday, February 18, 2024, at 12:00 noon.)

  The Slavers Guild - Hubert's Report
Posted by: Ravenblade - 09-15-2023, 12:00 PM - Forum: Erath 5e Background - Replies (1)

As the party settled into their seats at the table, Hubert’s grim expression became apparent to the adventurers. “I’m afraid I have poor news regarding the Chained Wings and the slavers,” he started, “The report of the winter location was a ruse. Thankfully, we got word to you in time.”

Shifting uncomfortably, Hubert continued, “Unfortunately, Bercel sent a number of his people to reconnoiter the fort, and the slavers struck in their absence. Most of us were able to fend off the attacks. However, a number of establishments were sacked, including a Melanian temple and a druidic grove not far from Freehold.”

“Never before have the slavers given such a show of force and brutality… so many taken…” Pausing momentarily to compose himself, Hubert resumed his report, “We’ve known for some time that the Chained Wings were acting as agents of the Slavers Guild. It has now become obvious that the Slave Lords themselves have taken a keen interest in our efforts to undermine their wretched commerce.”

“Please, there’s more!” said Hubert as he waved away the sudden burst of questions and exclamations from the party, “Our mole sent word of a remote island off the coast of Yri that appears to have been long-used by the slavers. They had made a waypoint along their slave route and base some of their operations in an old temple there.”

“Lord Bercel is currently in ongoing engagements with the local lords, but they appear to be cowed by the attacks. The regional Sedarin Magistrate is also too busy quelling unrest in the slum quarter to spare aid, if that is their intent.”

Hubert leaned forward conspiratorially, “Lord Bercel says he has a ship and captain insane enough to make the journey. He asks if you are too.”

  Anstarre Nights 2: 9th-Level Boogaloo
Posted by: Xura - 07-09-2023, 06:46 PM - Forum: Erath Miscellany - Replies (1)

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, kobolds nipping at your nose ...

It's Gurthos/December and we've hit Level 9 (imagine that). The question is, Now what? Some possible options:

  • Use Herbert's intel to strike at the Chained Wings in the bleak midwinter
  • Figure out what formula is needed by Jolrael's contact; acquire said formula; and take the formula to Jolrael's contact
  • Go back to Freehold and talk to Lord Barcel about his plan to hire a group to strike the Chained Wings' stronghold in Bhell
  • Go back to Freehold and hang loose, chat with Herbert, etc.
  • Head to Solare (one or two people mentioned having business there)
  • Spend a cozy winter in Anstarre relaxing and/or using the month for downtime -- including Blaylocke's quest for a better bow
  • (Insert other options here)

Lay your cards on the table and list your suggestions. All ideas welcome. Smile

  Anstarre Nights
Posted by: frenzied67 - 06-25-2023, 06:10 PM - Forum: Erath Miscellany - Replies (1)

After delivering Diera to her uncle and aunt, Calen and Badeen Preath, the party wanted to spend a few days doing various things. Also the DM needs a reminder to calculate the experience points the party has earned through this story arch, we seemed to have reached a milemark moment as well as finishing the story arch itself.

Blaylocke Anvilarm stated he wanted to seek a place where bards gather lore, poems, songs, and bad reputations.

Enkili Seeks the bards knowledge on his sword, specifically on this fragment he found: "...with a coin made from stone, a song stolen from dirt, and a knife from under the hills, Malaq wove his most powerful spells into the sword….” The Malaq mentioned is a Djinn. The maker of the Sainted Sword was an Efreet (Haquim) who used materials taken from the elemental plane of earth and fire taken from the elemental plane of fire to forge the weapon. He also wants to poll the party to see if they should include the Preath's in their campaign against the slavers. They may wish to participate in some small way especially since their family has suffered at slaver hands. Enkili will assist anyone wanting to do research.

Anyone else who wants to accomplish things during this downtime, they can post it here.

  Things to do and Discuss in The Freehold
Posted by: frenzied67 - 03-05-2023, 08:29 PM - Forum: Erath Miscellany - Replies (4)

We could pose as possible buyers sent by Buskar the Rat to Gaervin Plithy, the dock official.  Enkili hopes that Leiya's mind reading spell/ability will pick up the man's thoughts as he is being questioned, but he does not know the drawbacks/dangers of using Detect Thoughts.  Also, before the questioning Enkili would like to study Gaervin and anyone with him for a few days, sizing them up with his Know Your Enemy ability, learning their Strength, Dexterity, Constitution, AC, Hit Points, total class levels, and number of fighter levels as compared to his.  That will take a total of seven minutes of study on each person involved.  As a matter of reflex, Enkili will also do the same with Lord Bercel and everyone else they may meet.  Enkili is also into going to this Black Lighthouse of Jolrael's.  If the warehouse proves too expensive to acquire, there is also the Inn where everyone had been slaughtered to frame us.  The property value is sure to be... low because of that.

We should invest in some disguise kits and begin a wardrobe.  Enkili does not want to survail Gaervin looking like himself.  We know the Chained Wings has spread our likenesses around and have placed orders to take us out.  Does anyone have illusion magic? 

Since Enkili can't disguise his Mandagan heritage he will play with it.  As part of his disguises he will utilize a shemagh (Arabic head covering), turban 1 (middle eastern), and turban 2 (Hindu style). Of course will need Blaylocke's assistance in creating the other portions of the disguise to alter his features. Disguise kits cost 25 gp.

  Rodor Lvl 8
Posted by: rimmermac - 03-04-2023, 08:43 PM - Forum: Level-Up Information - No Replies

Pretty straight forward:
Avg HP increase
I get to learn 1 new spell from any school - Alter Self (PHB pg. 211)
And taking a feat instead of an Attribute increase: Healer PHB pg. 167

Rodor shadows Leiya while she performs healing duties. He's decided that, with recent events, it's best to pickup some skills outside of his profession in case he finds himself in an emergency situation without a healer and some of the more... virtuous characters are rubbing off on him.

  Leiya Level 8
Posted by: Xura - 03-04-2023, 01:50 PM - Forum: Level-Up Information - No Replies

Leiya Tevorova
Cleric
Level 8

Ability point increase: Wisdom, please. I'm (presumably) becoming wiser (as well as sadder), so let's grab that increase in bonus.

I believe that's the only choice-based thing I have; all else is automatic.

I can take the Average in terms of HP increase.

Leiya will be reporting (via magic or in person) to her religious superiors, as well as to Wellborne and, if needed, to anyone else at Jolrael's Guild (for example, the caretakers at the farmhouse safehold). She'll be reporting the events as well as extolling Jolrael's bravery, and imploring aid to see if he can be recalled somehow to the land of the living.

If there are any local shrines or groups devoted to Quendi, she'll visit them too, and pray in Jolrael's honor. (And also see if those followers know of ways to recall Jolrael.)

If able, she'll continue to try a Sending spell periodically to Miri (the little orphan). Also retroactively -- if Miri's stuffed bunny (can't recall its name without my notes, sorry!) was left behind in the temple after Miri's disappearance, Leiya will have taken the bunny for safekeeping (and periodic weeping).
