The Guild Game

By:

An Introduction and look at Pc's, plots, and plans

Campaign Information:

System: Pathfinder + some DnD3.5

GM: Myself with outside assistance from Agent Chips, A.K.A. " Mow"

GM Background: I am a believer of the "living game" and "evolving game" Ideas. Meaning that the PC's actions will effect the out come of the story overall. If I have it planned that the the last known heir is to come into power, and the PC's accidentally kill said heir, the game will change dramatically. If a period of time goes by where the game isn't played, than when it starts things will have changed. Simple stuff, I guess, in the end

Setting: Medieval with mix-ins of Steam and Technology.

Plot: In the lands of Firen, the Council of Seven make up the main body of government, with each member being chosen from one of the countries regions. For many years a royal family was in charge but they disappeared seemingly overnight. Shortly their after, the council was put into power and the family erased from history.

All business in the land is handled by or partnered with various guilds. The top seven guilds are adventuring guilds and to be a member of any one means power, respect, and wealth.

During a festival, a Panda, accompanied by a thin, quiet, blue hair, pale women, delivered invitations to a privet party being held in a local tavern that night. Once everyone was in attendance, the Panda explained that they were all being offered the opportunity to form a new guild. The purpose of the guild would be to put the royal families living heir back in power and over through the council.

After many left laughing, throwing mead, and cursing bear kind, those who remained asked, " Where are we going to set up and what do we need?"

Players: Each player was given the opportunity to create 3 Pc's for the game. That means that I have 24 PC's to deal with and plan for.

I think I'm going to post the PC's in groups of 3, associated with the person actually playing them, but i'll use a code name for them so as to not reveal their real identity.


(Placeholder location for PC bio(s) and/or a link to a sub describing all of them)

Disclaimer: The bio's that are being given are those that are being given to me FROM my PC's. If they dont seem that interesting or well thought out its a lack of creativity on them.

*Group 1*

Grug the Exile

Tristin Vindetrat

Fexxco

*Group 2*

Bogrot

Talia

Ofru the Wild Fire

*Group 3*

Laf-Laf

Arken

Adonia

*Group 4*

Nigel

Madeline

Kathier

*Group 5*

Durg Shoemaker

Gulgrim Mountainside

*Group 6*

*Group 7*

*Group 8*


Material: This section I will post links to the things that influenced me for the section of the game or material I'm using from the site and how its being used. Material I know I'm going to be using is as follows: Gems of the Underworld, Painted Minotaur Room, 7 things about Lovecraftian Fiction.

Two dozens PCs, disappearing royals, and a talking postal panda? This sounds awesome.

Protect the identities of the guilty!

"Hey young, we can't play this week." "OK."

--Missing a week of gaming allows a power play by Evil Duke X and an ally is assassinated--

"Welcome back all, here is what you missed last week."

I have never played in a game where events would continue without gaming. Of course there was a time shift when needed to move things along, but you comment brought out the thought. Is that how you would work it?

Close to that yes actually. Essentually, I would make a list of events, possable or planned by some organisation, and make rolls to see how they play out.

I did this once and ended up killing the campaign boss because he tried to make a Red Dragon his pet. Needless to say the pc's felt the irony was just and that leaving the big red beast to sleep the next 100yrs was a better option than suicidal assult.

An Invitation From Your God

       By: rickster

By late afternoon, the sky starts to cloud over. The sun shines behind the fluffy clouds, gilding the edges and showing a Jacob's-ladder of rays streaming through the gaps...very pretty. Gradually the clouds shift into a new configuration: you realize with awe-struck, preternatural clarity that the clouds form a map of a coast-line that you know against the blue sky as ocean: surely it's a Sign! Suddenly, the golden beams coalesce into one long ray that strikes across the blue. A star-like gleam flashes under the ray: perhaps it is an island? But the charts show no island there...who would want to hide an island? Who could do it?
