Ovoirae was the final civilized town on the western plateau, the final two towns that is. It’s a twin system, linked by rivers. Southwest is mountains as far as the eye can see, centered by a smoking belching volcano that has “ne’er been told erupting ‘cept in religious imergry. We are in the armpit of the dead western peninsula.” the old men muse, pass their time. Stories of an egg shaped pool of acid on the far southwest tip of the wretched hand, as they call the mass of land, are told, yielding infinite endings. You can count on hearing from the odd collection of characters found in Ovoirae. ”This town wouldn’t be here if not for the salt-works masterminded by Lord Joule. This territory used to be all Orc it’s said, not 35 years ago, now, nothing, only bandits and the ferocious wilderness to contend with. He’s a secretive one though, that Lord Joule. No one knows how he did it, how he got them orcs to stop fighting.”
It is spring and the rivers are bursting. The savage winter is waning. Life on the wet plateau stirs.
Was wondering , would you allow the use of greathammer from MM4 (page 101) ? And what about traits and flows from unearthed arcana. And got another question, will we be staying largely in the same city or will we be moving around allot as I would like to open up my works shop there hehe.
Sorry, couldn't find the geathammer, sounds interesting. What book is that? I looked in a couple, couldn't find it.
I don't mind giving traits and flaws a whirl.
We could potentially stay in the city for a while, a couple years at least.
I can work with you
BTW: I'm always looking for help on rules and such, I'm still learning here.
I'm thinking of making a chaotic neutral wild elf druid--a violent type, she's in touch with the primal mentality of hunting animals and more likely to be found gnawing a bone than growing flowers. Her interest in Lord Joule's request would be twofold: orcs are some of her favorite prey, and she wants to keep an eye on the industrial activity of the settlement (and possibly sabotage it if she feels the settled people are encroaching on the natural environment too much).
One thing though--none of the available druid companions seem to fit that personality. Could I substitute a hyena or possible a small feline (like a bobcat) instead? The hyena and wolf have very similar stats though hyenas are more likely to scavenge than hunt. I haven't found any stats for a feline of a size that would be acceptable for such a low level character but if I can that would be ideal.
