Welcome to DragonClaw Securities

Welcome to DragonClaw Security - Forum
Dungeons & Dragons 5e

Hello everyone!

So yeah, I've decided to run a game.

I would love it if every player could make it once a week or more often.

Thanks!

Game Description:

"Listen up squad! Today is your first day of work for DragonClaw Security. I'm sure things are still confusing for all of you. All of you are here because you want to create a better world. Let us update you on the current situation." A young black man in a business suit and sunglasses typed on a computer, and suddenly the image of a young bearded man of Arabic descent showed on the screen.

"This is a man named Ahmed Amirmoez. Or more accurately, all evidence available to us points to this being a shapeshifter impersonating him, an Ifrit to be precise. The original Ahmed was the son of a wealthy family from a country named Qatar. He inherited the family fortune after a "accident" befell his "parents" and went on to found a successful corporation named DjinniTech." As the man spoke, the image of the target was reduced to a corner, and an round map of the Earth appeared, showing where Qatar was. A logo representing a Djiinn appeared. "DjinniTech cornered several markets, it is the leader in arms manufacture worldwide, both for the civilians and military markets, the leader in consumer goods... Most civilian technology is made at least in part by DjinniTech, and a lot of illegal technologies are also made by DjinniTech." A few recently introduced weapons, smartphones, computers, cars, planes were then shown briefly. "DjinniTech also owns the Shadow Company, a private security contractor. They're trying to get contracts with the military and law enforcement for tasks, and in some countries they run private prisons and a police auxiliaries." The Shadow Company insignia, an SMG and a sword crossed with each other, showed on screen, along with many promotional pictures showing Shadow company mercenaries wearing gas mask posing in front of various military hardware, including but not limited to transport trucks, tanks helicopters and aircraft. "All of you have had a run in with the Shadow company and came up on top, which is why we got extremely interested in you and made you an offer to join us. This DjinniTech, and the Shadow Company by extension, are a weapon for the Ifrit to take over the world. And we, DragonCorps, are there to stop them."

A new picture showed on screen, of a clearly African woman, dressed in a business suit, wearing sunglasses, and brown hair cut in a no-nonsense cut. "This is our leader. The official story is that she is one of the numerous refugees from one of the many conflicts in Africa, and arrived in Europe through a charity offering scholarship for refugees, Despite suffering from amnesia, she graduated from a prestigious Swiss business school and created DragonCorps... The screen showed the logo of a stylized Gold Dragon surrounded by a circle. "through some early investors. She proceeded to poach the top engineers and scientists, as well as former military personnel, and DragonCorps became the world leader in experimental research, from extremely secure banking through quantum encryption, aerospace projects, to experimental medicine, and even has some lucrative private security deals. The real story is that she's a Gold Dragon who was dropped in Africa with her hoard, and she put her charisma and shapeshifting to good use to recruit a force to be reckoned with. Of course, most of DragonCorps breakthroughs have been done through mixing magic and technology. And DjinniTech cornered the market on consumer goods because they have use undead labor for many tasks. You don't have to pay zombies salaries, food, or even decent living conditions. This is how they are cornering the market on everything that doesn't require cutting edge technomagic." The man marked a pause, and typed on some keys on his laptop. Images of gangs, militias and even swarms of undead being eliminated by small squads with no unit markings showed on screen. "Now, you are part of the Department 7 of DragonClaw Security. Our black ops branch. We will be observing how you handle routine missions against low threats, and if you perform well enough, you could expect a few field promotions!"

Okay, well, this is an Urba Arcana Black Ops game using a D&D 5 Homebrew, and a lot of D20 Modern sourcebooks converted to 5th edition.

The homebrew isn't mine, but I still loved it a lot, ad here it is:https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0Byx44op3KqQ2flhIV1pKSzRIbFBtbjk4T0xOTlNzVi0yTEpRREV4ZnZCNjJWd25GOFR5VW8

As for the players, I would like between 3-5 well meaning PCs, every PHB race accepted, but humans would start not knowing much about magic, while D&D residents would not know much about technology at first. I plan on running a mini adventure for each characters to show how they managed to catch DragonClaw Security's interest. I would like a mixed squad, that is half humans and half non-humans. I will use a special attribute generation i found and loved, which requires us to have the full squad there.

As for the books, I'll use a sourcebook known as Blood And Guts, for field promotions, distinctions and lading a (few) small tactical squads in battle, and a sourcebook centered on drugs so don't be surprised if many enemies do better than their stats indicate, they're probably using performance enhancing drugs. I won't stop your characters from using them, but these drugs have some pretty nasty side effects and addictions can become nasty real fast...

The campaign will end when your team will locate and assault the stronghold of the Ifrit passing as Ahmed Amirmoez. Once he'll be dead, we'll be running an epilogue where what happens to your characters and major NPCs will be explained.

Also, at some point in the campaign, golem based cybernetics will become available. Just letting you know.

I'll need to check it. But I'm willing to allow the most common monster races if they're not game breaking. DragonCorps does not discriminate, they take the people who are qualified and can live up to company policy.

Level 1, and I posted the Homebrew I'll be using.

Here it is again: Homebrew

Basically, you take a race "as is", you take a Basic Class that will last 20 levels, and upon reaching level 3 you can add an Advanced class which stacks with your Basic Class. I recommend taking classes that have a good synergy. You also take one of the backgrounds from the homebrew I linked, but common sense applies, I will refuse non-humans who have a modern background. Most of the backgrounds are either generic enough. So no Law Enforcement or Military or things that are clearly modern.

The homebrew uses a ealth system where wealth is measured with a bonus, and you use that Wealth Bonus as if it were a regular stat to make purchases. This bonus will raise and fall when you buy/sell things or gain rewards.

As for where do we put the characters, I'll need to open up a sub-forum on this site... How is that done?

Could it be possible to be a human and be a warlock who got dragged into service due to a life and death situation and i had no choice in the matter.

You have one in the forum of your game forum https://www.myth-weavers.com/forumdisplay.php?f=46035

There should be options to be able to create new topics and new categories

If you are a human you can't start with magic, but you can certainly learn later. Anyways, aside from racial abilities you only start learning magic at level 3. As for being "dragged into service due to a life or death situation", the easiest explanation would be that the Shadow Company found out that you had the potential to awaken your powers and tried to capture you and you defended yourself with extreme prejudice, does that work for you?

Thank you SMART, I'm not really familiar with MW.
