Calling all Dispoisable Heroes

Gates of Tomorrow - Forum
Dungeons & Dragons 3.5e
Estimated Members Requested: 1

Heavy metal and D&D go together like peanut butter and chocolate. Epic battles, terrible villains, great heroes, mighty dragons and more are ubiquitous throughout heavy metal. This is a game inspired my the lyrics of heavy metal along with some of other genres.

Here you will be playing as a settler on a hellish frontier known as Devils Island. The game will start with the PCs either getting on the boat, in the middle of the voyage, or just stepping off, I haven't decided which yet and your input is most welcome.

The GMs: Yours truly with some help from Tonizio.


Starting level is first, there is a attributes rolling thread in the game forum, starting wealth is standard as per the PHB.

Alignment: Possibly against my better judgement I'm going to allow any alignment.
Appearance: Typical what do you look like, pictures are nice but far from necessary.
Personality: What makes you who you you, what are your hopes and fears, that sort of stuff?
Background: What did you do before you hoped a boat to Devils Island and why are going, is it by choice or where you convicted of a crime and chose shipping out over the gallows?
Song of Inspiration: Something special for this campaign I'm requiring all applicants to cite one song as inspiration for their character. You might be sorcerer who gained his powers by being the seventh son on a seventh son, or a priest of the Temples of Syrinx.

Sources Allowed:

Right now I'm going to allow anything put out by WotC, but I'm going to talk to Tonizio about it, don't make me regret being so open.

Lastly I've been very vague, this is intentional, I'm looking to you to help me fill in the blanks.

Game Description:

Calling all disposable heroes; the kingdom of Judas is looking brave and mighty individuals to settle the Sleepwalker Archipelago. This chain of dangerous and mysterious islands has long frightened civilized people and until recently only a few foolish individuals have ever tried explore the islands most never making it back.

That all changed 21 years ago when king Iommi ordered the port city of Remember Tomorrow built on the largest and closest island known as Devils Island. Twelve years ago king Iommi went missing on a visit to the island, prince Ulrich has since come to rule and it is by his efforts you know find yourself headed to Devils Island. Settlers might be volunteers swayed by tales of untold riches hiding among the dangers or criminals given the option of settling Devils Island instead of going to the gallows.

Posting interest. I know nothing about heavy metal, but possible thinking of playing a Warforged Dragonfire Adept with the theme song I Am Iron Man by Black Sabbath.

Posting interest. Elf Scout. Slip Away by Dry Cell.

Posting interest, thinking of playing a sorcerer/necromancer. Theme song, War Pigs, by black sabboth.

Posting interest with the 2 concepts:
first Wolf Lord theme She-wolf by Megadeth

2nd Bard theme Symphony of Destruction by Megadeth

I prefer the first but want to clear the class first before generating anything.

Character concepts:
Dyrad Pirate; Theme Song "Wanted: Dead or Alive"
Petal Enchanter; Theme Song "Du riechst so gut"
Something Shapeshift; Theme Song "Oh Fortuna"

Looks interesting. Thinking about a human Bard with his song being Bigmouth Strikes Again by the Smiths.

Hmm posting interest. Would the tome's be available? I know some DM's prefer to limit them even if everything else is open. (I'm not planning on doing anything overly silly, but I MIGHT be interested in the Crusader. Unless I can think of a better idea.)

All right, no surprise there really.
