Broken Mountain - Level 1 Dungeon Delve (second run with a twist)

Broken Mountain Delve - Forum
Dungeons & Dragons 4e
Ad Closes: Nov 16 '09
Estimated Members Requested: 5

Going to run my level 1 delve for the second time.

As per my idea in the gaming planning forum (link) I am going to be handing over control of the monsters to other players. For this particular game I am going to be using three of the players that actually participated in the delve the first time around to run all the monsters.

At it's heart it'll be essentially the same delve that they enjoyed though the monsters are being updated (another excuse to use the WOTC Monster Builder)

Looking to fill out a fairly balanced team of five to six character. Would like players that able to post once a day and ideally keep track of the battle so they don't end of only posting once every two days due to initiative order. Players will need to keep track of their own status and hitpoints in their statblocks.

My character application format should be followed as closely as possibly. (link to details and example)

Please note this is a delve were the aim of the game is to survive the three linked encounter. Character death is a real possibility here and no punches will be pulled though I will try to setup up the encounters so they are survivable. Good luck!

Game Description:

SettingSix month ago the central peak of the Black Mountains split with a crack that was heard across the entire continent. A mostly stable peace that had held for almost a century was briefly shattered as civilisations blamed each other for causing this event and the terrible atrocities that followed. But the councils, kings and various other leaders have come to the realisation that none of them were being spared the attacks and incursions from the various dark, alien and previously unknown creatures that now plague all their lands. All creatures seem to originate from what is now known as the Broken Mountain.

Armies were gathered but met heavy magical opposition and physical force in the badlands that now surround the mountain. Thunderstorms sprung up, swamps appeared overnight and entire divisions were swallowed by chasms that opened in what were once fair plains. Then hordes of the creatures swept out of hiding and slaughtered the survivors.

Finally the authorities turned to the adventurers that had been tentatively exploring the outskirts and promised great wealth, fame, titles and land to those that could seek to the centre of this mountain and find and destroy the source. From across the lands adventurers gathered in border cities and formed small bands to venture into the badlands. Some bands made it to the broken mountain and found walls of a strange partly transparent slightly luminescent rock with numerous caves leading in.

You are a member of one of those bands.

PremiseA quick setting for what is essentially a series of dungeon delves. Many of the creatures the party will face will be new, though probably almost always just a re-flavouring of creatures from official sourcebooks. All creatures will have types and, though knowledge skills wont represent known information, the correct skill will provide the occasional clue to behaviour.

Goals are simple; survive and defeat the three encounters of the delve. There will be a short rest between each encounter but no extended rests during the delve. Any character or party that chooses to flee will not be seen again. If you so choose you can believe they made it to safety and retired to a happy life.

Delves will be all my creation but based on the experience point totals used in the official dungeon delve supplement. I'll set the scenario and try and make sure it's beatable, but there will be no pulling the punches but also no cheating, I'll try to make sure creatures act logically but I won't explain the logic or strategies I will be using for each creature.

Just noticed how out of date all my application info thread was so have just been busy rewriting it all. (Copied most from my LFR games). Was a bit of a rush job since I posted the ad first... so if there is any contradictory information in there let me know and I'll correct it.

Drat, I was hoping on a possible slot on the monster's side.

Ah, well, I'll see if I can't whip up a good PC here instead, then.

Format is fine, first to meet the requirements. Hence next to be accepted.

Not a complicated game to get in really. Just meet the application requirements and aim for a role that is required for the group.
