Cannot wait to see how this plays out, I enjoyed reading the beginning of your CRTF sessions. Will you be updating this with summaries?

Also, I have to say I read "Althalos Yerel" entry and thought of it to be cliché at first, then I finished reading it. I cannot wait to see the mishaps that would happen due to it. Same with "Valen Aventura" he looks like someone that would cause a ruckus as well. Go to Comment

Just one quick thing: you misspelled disgraced in the captain of the guard entry. C, not s.

Other than that, pretty good. I'm looking forward to see how this turns out. Go to Comment

Might be easier to have the PCs use Morano to identify an item or used as a source of information earlier in the campaign so that they already know them. Once they know them, know the bare minimums about them (they are "good") then when they see them being chased through the town there is motivation to get involved.

Once involved the guards could lump them in with the Morano's for damage/clean-up fees in the town and such which would make them (me anyway) more motivated to find who did it for paybacks for the loss of my coin as well as safety of Morano.

You had me at the title of the sub, love it! Go to Comment

I had to read this twice to realize that this isn't a "western-themed" sub! :)

It smells like the opening scene in a Sergio Leone movie! Go to Comment

I'm thinking more assassins sent to kill any witnesses of the first attack... Go to Comment

This is a very solid introductory quest, with a nice lead in to a bunch of other stuff. The letters were a nice touch. Call me jaded, but my players rarely make characters that go for the whole "good samaritan" hook, so you may want to consider including several other motivations for the party to become involved. Perhaps as witnesses to the crime, they are required to make a court date? If there is a law in the country that requires good samaritan behaviour if a crime is witnessed (which is why a lot of people at the scene were actually turning away or covering their eyes), then they could be charged with helping the investigation. Just a thought. Go to Comment

Consider Kyle stolen, I need a hard nosed emotionally toxic beat cop for my vampire game. I like him, he has depth and you've managed to convey a great deal of information in a few sentences. Doing some swapping around on my end, Amy was knifed by a perp, but one that was secretly associated with vampires, not that he knows that, but he knows that there is something going on, a reason the brass lets some stuff slide and other stuff gets nailed to the wall for everyone to see.

Great char Ted. Go to Comment

       By: Almar

While setting up camp for the night, the PC's are aproached by another group of adventurers who seem nice enough. The road is somewhat dangerous and the other group suggests camping together. The two bands split watches, one adventurer from each group watching at once. The night goes by without incident, the next day the PC's travel with the other group as they are going the same way.

The group consists of Hordel the ranger, who is skilled with the bow. Hordel is a quiet man who speaks little but appears quite skilled. Dremar is a barbarian who is a little excentric, he seems to be an excasive drinker and thiunk that battle is the solution to everything. He appears to be a stout and powerful fighter with his greataxe. Ferrin is the leader of the group, a rouge by trade. He is daft and witty, speaking with the PCs often and asking many questions. He fights with finesse with his rapier. Preminitat as a cleric but he will not say which god he worships. He uses his spells to empower and heal his party and fights with a club. He sticks close to Ferrin. Ferrin is a great talker and tells much of himself and his party, but asks even more about the history and capabilities of the PCs. He tells of some adventures his party has had, and they seem like an interesting group of mercenaries. Hordel is quite and has little interest in speaking with the PCs, he ignores most questions. He spends a lot of time with Dremar and sometimes Ferrin. Dremar seems to not care about any questions ansked to him, nor does he seem to know the answers. He seems battle hardened and is a simple man. Preminitat rarely starts conversations but will speak with the PCs. However, some of his accounts of the party's history seem to condradict those of Ferrin.

The Party spends another night and day with Ferrin's group. One of four things can happen on the third night.
1: While eating dinner around the fire, Ferrin gets into an argument with one of the PCs when he/she mentions the discepincies between Ferrin's stories and Preminitat's.
2: Hordel gets mad after repeated questioning about his life from the PCs.
3. Preminitat gets mad after repeated questioning from the PCs about what god he worships.
4: One of the PCs rejects the offer of a drink from Dremar and he takes it as an insult.
All of these scenarios result in a battle between the parties. If Ferrin's party is defeated and still lives he swears vengance. His party may then cross paths with the adventurers again.
