Gestalt has been chosen! Make your coolest, most awesome dual classes!
--No monster classes; sorry, doesn't make sense for the campaign. Not to mention, a lot of races won't make sense, but I'll be pretty lenient, and take it as it goes.
Attributes: 36 Point Buy in.
You'll be starting Level 1; There are 3 starting possibilities that I have kind of opened up. In simple terms,
- The setting takes place on the continent of Altyrand. For centuries past, the continent has faced constant turmoil; it has only been within the recent decades that a parley was reached and peace between the 4 Kingdoms ensued. However, it seems that tensions are starting to build again for unknown reasons. Humans remain the dominant race (somehow), and they are the ones ruling over the 4 Kingdoms: Xerath (red/yellow/orange border), Vi (Red border), Gragas (orange), Skarner (yellow, orange border); other races are simply tolerated.
You all were residents of Xerath, the heart of the continent. Due to its location, it has one of the biggest trade networks on the continent. However, one day, there was a decree from the King that taxes were going to be significantly increased. Many people were imprisoned after not being able to make the ridiculous payments the king ordered. The only exemption was the military, because who else would help imprison the citizens?
Unfortunately, the lot of you were unable to pay the taxes as well, (especially Ippy, he's a cat) and were jailed. After a few months, you guys are moved to a labor camp.. Oddly enough, the camp is in the Vi Kingdom. Everyone is forced to work, cutting lumber, mining, etc. (except for Ippy, he's a cat; he becomes the camp pet or something..) Two years go slowly by...
Meanwhile, Brutus, a paladin of the Pelor temple outside the capital of Xerath (name to be given later), tries to defend against the countless onslaught of Capital Guards. The one exemption was the military, churches also got the crap end of the stick. The temple was eventually overrun and everyone was arrested for tax evasion. Brutus finds himself getting a one way ticket out to Vi; this information has become public knowledge at this time. Brutus hopes there can be a way for him to break free and get back to defending his temple.. "Who will be able to help me?"
- Theme Song:
- Ah.. Good times.
More to come, that's all for now!
