Introduce Yourself -- Game Masters / GM Ravemore
« on: May 26, 2023, 12:32:32 am »
I’m playing from the Eastern US time zone and I'm a returning GM. I was on the team back in 2011. I first started playing Layonara in 2006. I met a lot of really cool people here. I come from a long, long roleplaying background. Anyway, real life pulled me away with a cross country move for work, my master’s degree program, and later a cancer diagnosis for both my wife and I. We both beat it and I’m pushing 5 years now in the clear. The kids are grown up, graduated college, have good jobs, and are mostly on their own. I’ve been back to Layonara since last fall and I’m now ready to do some part time GM work. So… a little bit about my GM style.

1.) I enjoy putting together short impromptu quest sessions most. My ideal groups are smaller. I’m likely to limit participation to no more than 3-6 players. If I schedule a quest its usually “first come first serve.” I love dropping random monsters or encounters on players without formal quests. If you are in the Deep and start seeing weird stuff and it starts becoming much more difficult… A good bet is that I’m probably in the server.

2.) After I have had a fair amount of time re-learning the tools and lore I will run CDQ’s, but there are some caveats. Characters need to be below 10th level. You need to have a journal with enough material for me to work with. Although I will run Corath themed quests, I will not involve myself in ones affecting leadership positions in the church or other affiliated organizations. My main player character could potentially create conflicts (real or imagined.) If I get more than two pending CDQ’s I’ll shut myself off from more signups until further notice. It might be a long time too. I’m not keen on the idea of running them one after another continuously. For the time being I am closed, but I'm open to discussing future ones though now via PM's in Discord.

3.) Good RP will get you good XP… Excellent RP will get you excellent XP. No RP will get you a rust monster.

4.) Actions have consequences… some can be long lasting. Some might be awesome. Some might make you cry.

5.) I’m kind of picky about sleeping/resting. You don’t have to ask permission, but out in the wild places of the world, camps should be set up and night watches placed. Study your spell books, talk with each other a little bit, eat a little food, etc. In towns I don’t want to see you dropping in the middle of the busy street to rest. Find a place that makes sense.

6.) Loot should be split among all players at the end of the quest round-robin style. True should be evenly divided. No hiding or stealing… even if your class or alignment makes sense.

7.) Please have some patience with my use of mechanics and lore... it has been a long time since I have done this work.

8.) I reserve the right to make changes to this later.

Great to hear from you, friend!
As to the Bracers of Sigil, sure - they are yours!
However, if you find another then please place it in the Crafters Loaner Chest for credit, as they can be very useful for many!

Character Submissions / New Character Submission: Imogen Darkmere
« on: November 07, 2022, 03:01:17 am »
Name: Imogen Darkmere
Age: 26
Class(es): (Split to 20) Rogue 5, Cleric 10, Fighter 5
Race: Human
Alignment: Lawful Neutral
Deity: Rofirein
Domains: Strength/Knowledge 

Biography and Description:

Imogen stares sternly at the effigy of Rofirein adorning the temple at Fort Vehl. She glares around her at the squalor of the docks and exhales through her nose to clear her senses of the dross. “Ugghck… this stinkhole certainly hasn’t improved,” she mutters moving toward the door. “One would think the church would have made at least some inroads into cleaning up this dump by now.” She has traveled there, from her home in Western Gate, to gain information from the church.

Rumour has it that an ambitious necromancer has been busying himself about Mistone spreading the foul corruption of Corath. Being a woman of faith (and aspiration) skilled in gathering information amid menacing circumstances, Imogen has taken it upon herself to aid in foiling the machinations of this villain. She is tall, standing at least six feet, and broad-shouldered. She is not unattractive with green eyes and long, plaited black hair but is uncompromisingly dour. With a discontented sigh, she approaches the temple door.

Inside she speaks at length with Justiciar Reus and a handful of Rofireinite clergy gleaning what little information she can from the conversation while writing it down, word for word, in a new journal. She stops them occasionally by raising her free hand so that she may get every letter in place. As the candles burn low, the informal meeting finishes, and a blessing of Rofirein is bestowed upon her. “If you are determined to involve yourself in this, you must exercise extreme caution,” she is warned. “Of course,” she nods solemnly, “I am the very essence of prudence.” With this, she turns on her heel and strides out the door.

*The daughter of a Rofereinite clergyman, Imogen is well-educated and has always had a thirst for knowledge. Growing up in Western Gate and ever a devout and serious girl she proved adept, from a young age, at investigating suspicious occurrences by using her keen insight and intuition. This curiosity often lead her into dangerous circumstances, despite the protestations of her parents, and thus she became skilled at emerging unscathed, for the most part, from dire situations through both wit and weapon.

1) I have read the information on Rofirein and I will play Imogen as a faithful cleric of Rofirein to the best of my abilities.
2) Having grown up as the daughter of a cleric, Imogen sees and interprets the dogma of Rofirein rigidly and, as her life's work, intends to protect the common people by bringing justice to all those who would evade it.
3) She will wield a bastard sword and metal-based armour but prefers to dress in an unadorned manner to remain covert.

Introduce Yourself / Great to be Back!!
« on: October 30, 2022, 04:23:59 pm »
I would like to thank everyone for all of the warm “welcome backs” in game and Discord. Coming back to Layonara after so many years has been a treat. Sort of like seeing family after a long absence. Looking forward to spending more time in game becoming familiar with the locations, experiencing the changes, and spreading the evil of Corath across the lands once more.

Alpoah gazes into the depths of the smoldering fire and thinks about her old Waazk'ah. Five years now. Five years have passed since he was crushed by that cursed pine. She had tried, in her desperation, to heave it from his lifeless body, but even she had not the might for such a task. She screamed and wept and cursed and cried until she had no more tears to give. Now, five years on, still just a teen by dwarven reckoning, she sits alone in the wild nursing her broken heart.

Rumour Has It / A Jolly Roger is hoisted over 102 Hlint
« on: July 13, 2022, 10:21:37 pm »
Sipping on his morning coffee, the realtor thumbs through his ledgers and is suddenly startled when the door swings open, crashing nearly off its hinges.

"I need a place to lay low, nice an private loike. no questions asked," grumbles the sullen one-eyed dwarf through a long black matted beard.  The stench on his breath a sickening sweet mix of rye and bloodlust.

"That will be a hefty order sir... for on such as you? Fifty-Thousand."  the realtor chortles, expecting this ill-kept vagabond to be priced out of the market.  "And we don\t offer lines of credit"

"Fifty Thousand? That all?" the dwarf casually pulls open a loop from his enchanted bag and digs through its contents as a prospector of many things. "Ye take coin, emerald, mithral, ruby or skulls?"

"Just the coin, thank you." The merchant simmers.

With a jingle, a single burlap sack, stained with the blood of countless giants, ogres, trollocs and various other beasties lands with a crack on the table, which creaks and buckles under its weight.

"You could have just had a bank note issued... it's two doors down you know"

"Yeah, I know! Now get to counting, I ain't got all day!"

And with that, the dwarven pirate chortled and marches off to his new home overlooking the lake of bountiful carp.  The lawn soon begins to clutter with the skulls of various exotic monsters, artfully placed as any garden gnome.

A new reign of terror begins.
