Game Description:

THE BARON'S DAUGHTER NEEDS YOUR HELP!

The Bent Fork Inn is widely considered to be the last safe place to sleep for adventures headed into the Gromlech Uplands. The wide, low ground floor is a dining room constructed from sturdy oak beams and lit by heavy brass chandelier which hang dangerously low over the many round tables. Laughter, songs and stories echo at all hours of the day against the soot blackened timbers and the smells of ale and meat are always on the air.

It was a typical night at the Bent Fork until you saw the stranger come in. The traveler wore a hooded cloak, too fine and too clean by half to belong to the Fork's normal clientele. After a moment of nervously scanning the crowd, the stranger skirted around the crowd, making her way to your booth in the corner. Awkwardly, they stumbled into the both next to you. Under the hood, you saw the face of a young noblewoman, less than twenty summers, with an expression of intense worry drawing deep crevices upon her face.

There is moment of silence where she hovers on the edge of tears then, like a dam bursting, her words spill out in a rush, Please! she begs, You must help me! My beloved Creampuff, he's missing and I don't know where to turn!

DescriptionThis is a relatively short adventure designed to be a self-contained one-shot. It takes place in a mostly unformed world, so feel free to make up any elements you desire for your character. My goal here is to tell a quick, fun story with one to two players as well as to refine it for later reuse.

That's too bad. I was kinda amused by the thought of justifying why the random adventurer that the baron's daughter picked to solve her problem would have been a gnoll, haha.

Well...Ashen Dragon's suggestion actually did give me an idea...
A gnoll, who's haemophobic and has a weak stomach; a terrible hunter/scavenger, in other words.
When his flaws came out, his tribe literally parcelled him up and mailed him to the nearest city, with a tag along the lines of 'you take him, we don't want him!'.

Therefore being raised in civilization, today he works as a bounty hunter, usually specialising in troublesome wild animals like foxes in the chicken coop, with a surprising reputation of bringing in his targets unscratched...bruised, sometimes, but not scratched.

I don't know if this is the most brilliant crazy idea ever or the most crazy brilliant one. Either way, I'm down!!!

Now to figure out if I want to go with something archetypal and mildly silly, or play it dead serious.

This sounds like a fun adventure! I would love to sign up, I'm fairly new to pathfinder so this sounds like a sweet little endeavor. May I join this quest with a level 1 character?

Hi Sable, welcome to Myth-Weavers! To sign up for this game, make a thread detailing the character you'd like to play and submit it in the game forum. Then, in about two weeks, I'll pick the character or characters I think match the story best and we'll go with them. You can look at other applications for this game and for others to see what is generally expected.

Unfortunately, this game is specifically designed to be balanced around the kind of characters described in the Character Creation thread, so a 1st level character would not be acceptable. There are other games currently accepting applications for 1st level characters, so maybe try in those if that is an absolute dealbreaker for you.

Anyways, I hope you enjoy your time on the site and get into a game you like soon
