Post your party! Use a template, or dont. It doesn't matter.Here is one a player of mine made for a game we had a few years ago.

Not mine but a pic of the group that fell apart due to the GM going AWOL. One of my first ever games I really enjoyed, but unfortunately it just wasn't meant to be it seemed. Just had to do one finale and it'd all be perfect. Still miss it, to be honest.
Just completed our campaign a couple of weeks ago.
This is for a D&D 3.5e campaign I run set 2000 years after WWIII sent humanity back to the Stone Age.
>>76454618Digging that Roman looking lass. What's the setting?
>>76457331Saving the NotByzantine Empire from the NotStygians.The girl is the late Emperor's illegitimate daughter and jumped a whole lot of places in the order of succesion after the royal household got blown up.Now the party is trying to escort her to the border provinces to hopefuly raise the legions for her.Pic is what her player uses; pretty sure he got it from around here.

>>76457624Sounds based as fuck. Hope I can pull of a political plot some day, it makes my brain hurt though.>hopefuly raise the legions for herWhat are their chances?
>>76457973>What are their chances?Once they make it, pretty good.One of the legates is her half brother (unlike her he was never aknowledged) and he loves her to bits/has zero interest in the throne.I'll probably put in a plot by officers urging him to declare himself Emperor and march on the capital himself/team up with the southeners, but once that is dealt with there should be no problem.Maybe some shenanigans to make sure the border is safe from goblin raiders while the army's away. Gives the little dude in the party some time to shine.
>>76457309Your game sounds very fun
>>76456536>40k Mafioso familyI dig it.
>>76457905One day. One day, in a foggy afternoon, with fresh and warm pasties off gregs with a bottle of fresh gin in his hands, ready to shitpost and come back again. We can only hope Parsley. We can only hope.
I wish my players spent as much time developing their characters as they do finding out how to efficiently tax their fief.

>>76459357Ace is a Guardsman who survived his first deployment and got picked up by the inquisition, proceeds to go into massive debt so that he can get augmented by the officio assassinorum all so he can carry and fire an auto-cannon. Vahkious is a tech priest who makes servitors, are skirts the borders of tech heresy. He made guard servitors for an inquisitorial reliquary. He's the most practical of the group and reluctant leader. Don't mind that he's secretly a planeswalker. Eisen is a useless piece of shit.Hexis was an experiment of fabious bile who wound up dumped in the lap of the inquisition, he's a mutant who can reanimate the dead with his blood, and is also definitely a clone of david bowie.Orla's a feral world sister who spent her childhood running from orks before being picked up by the sisterhood. After surviving an encounter with a daemon she was taken into the service of the inquisition.

>>76458786god bless that bastard, I'll be waiting>>76459625the mushroom dude was a middle-aged weirdo from an underground colony of halflings, he left and was the gravedigger to a nearby town (hence the shovel) before adventuring. Had some dubiously necromantic mushroom-themed magic that would creep the rest of the party out before the campaign died due to aforementioned missing GM. Stuff like raising/controlling giant cordyceps-infected spiders or blasting people with poisonous spores. The mushrooms on his hat were mostly stylized.
>>76459625>Kickass!>How long has the game been going?Little over one and a half years, though a lot of that is 'rona timeout. We tried online sessions and it didn't quite work. What system are you using?3.5. with a lot of Adventure Conqurer King on the side of the GM (me) for stuff like worldbuilding and battles.
Yes, it is a RWBY game. No, I didn't draw it.
>>76460588Sweet lord dude. I gotta hear about these characters now.
>>76460934Okay so heres the rundown. B (Barnaby Slate) is our smart-talking asshole leader from Atlas (the technological centre of the setting). The first D (Viridan Dare) is our physical powerhouse (including in the bedroom). Z (Zorana Astora) is the edgy lone wolf rat-person from the backwater asshole of the world. Second D (Dorado Viento) is the party diva (he's a boy and not gay or ftm), and generally the comic relief of the team.
>>76461030You forgot the first version of our character art.
>>76461050Christ, do not remind me
>>76460588>Third characterI get what the artist was trying to do with that pose, but like, come the fuck on dude. You should have realized halfway through drawing it that this wasn't going to look right.>>76461050I'm 99% certain that this is Custom Maid 3D 2.I assume all of you are massive fucking weebs, if so good for you, but why the fuck would you recreate your party with a Japanese porn game out of all things.
>>76461176idk man, the Aussie had the game and used it to make characters.
>>76461176Nah its Koikatsu Party I believe, no artist at the time. Also yeah the ass was down to artist discretion.
>>76461030Why is Z so god damn thick though? Was that included in the character description?
>>76461329>the ass was down to artist discretion.And neither the DM nor the player said anything about it. They totally accepted the dumptruck ass.
>>76461383Player hereI did indeed accept the dumptruck ass
>>76454598just had our first sessioncan't draw our third guy yet because he's offline and can't provide his character art
>>76454598My most recent party art I've done, for a Dark Heresy game that ended a few months ago. Though I need do a couple for my current campaigns sometime.From left to right:>Seraphina Caesulina Dulcia Calogerus, the snooty noble-born Administratum worker>Claudius Stahl, the straightforward Guardsman and the team sniper>Vardis Bollaert, the Sanctioned Psyker and the party straight man>Frost, a Biologis Tech-Priest who started out as the medic and ended as a human blender>Invictus Konma, a regular Tech-Priest who was Mars-born and often butted heads with Frost over theological differencesOverall a fun time, though only 2 of the characters made it out of the whole campaign alive (the drawing was commissioned by Sera, one of the survivors.)
>>76459625>Tell us about the Galba Family. What kind of "family" are they?Oh, I could go on. I've been using them in one form or another for ten years at this point. In summary, they're prohibition-era mobsters on a Rogue Trader scale. Imagine the Monthy Python sketch where a couple of mafiosos walk into a general's office and go "nice army you got there, be a shame if something happened to it" and that's basically it. Their family motto is "if you can't twist an arm, you may as well break it".
>>76456536Fucking nice. I always love seeing 40k art of more civvie kinds of people.
>>76459669>Vahkious is a tech priest who makes servitors, are skirts the borders of tech heresy. He made guard servitors for an inquisitorial reliquary. He's the most practical of the group and reluctant leader. >Don't mind that he's secretly a planeswalker.Hold the fucking phone, you're telling me that Nuparu is a character in your campaign?

>>76462284Did the orange Pakari not make that obvious?
>>76462760Hey man, I wasn't sure if the player had just picked a random mask and it was a weird coincidence or not.Do you ever go in depth on how he got there or is it something not really talked about? Because now I'm wondering why he's not a manlet
>>76463001>Yam wizard>Tiefling sea captain>Blushing but otherwise normal druid>Perfectly normal dwarf>Some kind of mustachioed mushroomDid I get close? I'm genuinely intrigued.
>>76462241Thanks. I try to keep my characters fairly understated.

Been workin on this lately, WIP so unfinished
>>76454598Rate us I guess
>>76454598Oh boy, I have a bunch.The setting is a cross between The Dunwich Horror and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, our group our church-ordained monster hunters, and this is our first major battle against a beast know as the Soul Eater.

>>76462141Wether the other survivor is either or neither of the tech priests:Good end, seems like a cool story.
>>76467872The other survivor was actually Frost, but the tech-priest Invictus nearly made it all the way through but he killed our inquisitor, giving away that he was infested with a halo device.

>>76471417A different nechronica party at the conclusion to my first complete campaign.
>>76475182More pixel art and small images of guns please.
>>76460023>Is Fulgaris also an asshole, was Angelus already an asshole, has Angelus become an asshole in response to events in the game, or is some other combination of factors what leads to Angelus being an asshole?Yes, yes, and yes.>What is the deal with Jaoromir's maskSee pic, its a face-plate style helm. Used by nobles from his homeland.>How does Ocuil avoid getting fired or discharged from the company. Well, a wizard is a wizard, no matter how insubordinate or annoying. they were quite rare in the setting, and were a huge asset to the mercenary company. Especially moderately powerful wizards like Ocuil and Angelus.Funny thing though, after making a deal with a blood spirit that he was unable to upkeep, Ocuil had to confess to being responsible for the ghoul infestation plaguing the companies camp, and so he was hacked to death by a few of his battle brothers (who had lost wives and children to the Ghouls), all with the tacit approval of Sergeant Carpenter.>How are Gillieasbaig MacNeis's off-the-book sales handled mechanically.This was run in a pretty crunchy system called Mythras, so I actually calculated the companies typical operating costs and put Gillieasbaig's player in charge of them, letting him cook the books as he wished. People didn't really question him because he never took enough to deprive men of arms or food. He made most of it by running the gambling and prostitution among the camp followers. >What keeps Casdianus and Claudia together?Obligation, not knowing any other way of living, a bit of genuine love perhaps. Sadly Claudia (and the twins she was carrying) was killed by Ghouls before we got a lot of time to delve into this arc.

>>76467923We had devised a plan to trap and deal with the beast, in fear of it's great strength, because all the monsters of the mists are stronger than a grizzly bear at minimum, and a grizzly is stronger than any human in the Savage Worlds system. We had purchased 4 25ft lengths of chain with barbed ends which we had tied around nearby trees. The plan was that I (The Knight) would draw it's attention while the other melee character (The Woodsman) would pierce it with the barbed ends. Once all four (or three if I wasn't faring well) were in the beast we would step back and ignite it with the Witch-Fire Gun I had purchased (I was the primary source of funding for the group, owing to my wealthy background) and watch it burn to death.That is not what ended up happening, instead the beast took one look at me, detecting my hindrance of The Hunter! (Monsters of the Mists prioritize this character for attacks) and summoned the phantoms of those it had already killed in the past.Our plan then had to be adapted to dealing with these as well, so while the beast of the party dealt with the shades with ranged attacks, I would hold the beast off long enough for them to join me (in case it's not obvious, my character was entirely built around preparing for the fights and then tanking as much as possible, my ability to deal damage is only secondary to my ability to not die.)Fortunately, the beast, while incredibly strong, was only a moderately decent fighter. His ability to fight was further reduced by the fumes of our plague doctor, Dr. Corban.The first wave of phantoms was dealt with fast enough, but then the beast summoned more. At this point we were getting desperate and the plan then changed to most of the party holding off the phantoms while the sniper and I killed off the beast.Cont.
>>76475931In a incredible twist of fate, the Witch Fire Gun set the beast alight, and the burn damage exploded (the dice came up their maximum value, which then meant we had to reroll the dice and add the damage together).The exploded damage ended up being something around 45, which was more than enough to immediately burn the Soul Eater to a crisp.We got a nifty blade and necklaces out of the deal (blade can force a corpse to answer a question it knew in life, necklaces increase damage taken but allow wearer to attack approaching targets immediately)My suggestion to eat the beast was turned down, and we moved on to the next monster. A so called Bull of Heaven.I only have one more picture in the style of the previous, and I deliberately didn't put much effort into it because I still have the bull to draw once we confront it (next session, we spent 2 sessions investigating and preparing for it)The other picture is when we are attacked by individuals who pick the equipment off of hunters that fight the bull and die, they got greedy and tried to kill us themselves as to preserve the loot it's crushing hooves.
>>76476016And my initial sketch of the bull of heaven, when I first heard of it.
>>76475875>How into the weeds do the players get with the politics?Only really the Princess. I worked out her connections to the family and the other political factions beforehand. The fighter and the goblin both started out as mercs and grew to like her and the druid has a crush on her (which the players agreed not act upon in-game).

>>76468559Here's the group for my group's Stars without number campaign (unfortunately aborted because we all lost interest)
>>76468559Next two are exalted campaign that lasted for 4 sub-campaigns. I only did group art for the last two though.
>>76476768I thought I had more, by only now do I remember that my computer got scrambled about a year ago, and I don't have anymore scans.So that's all.
>>76475716From right-to-left: >TachiOur Thanatos and frontliner. She was pretty quiet out of combat but had a propensity to launch headlong into groups of bad guys like an angry cannonball and tearing mooks to shreds. She was the character who arguably had the most backstory set before the campaign; she had served humanity in the Necromancer Wars (the calamity in Nechronica that ended all life on the Earth and doomed the planet to being an undead hellscape) and her father was one of the surviving faction's best and brightest. Ostensibly, a lot of her cyborg modifications came from him, but no one knows how she got her set of mechanical crab legs because her father was dead long before she lost her original ones. At some point before the events of the campaign, she had tried to launch herself into orbit and faced the party's Necromancer in combat, but he rebuffed her and launched her back down to Earth. We're not sure how she ended up in the stasis facility she was found in. >ProtocaGroup's Stacy. That means she gets stronger when you hurt her. Her mutations are awkward, uneven, and she is in a perpetual state of physical agony as her body fights not to rip itself apart under its own enhanced strength. Pretty dour person, as you can imagine. But she cares selflessly for the rest of the party and does the best she can to protect all of them in the heat of combat. Which is partially fueled by her martyr complex.Her mental construction is... kinda odd. Protoca is sharing headspace with several different psyches, with one being herself and one being the original owner of her body, whom Protoca was a clone of before being destroyed. Somehow their egos latched onto one another, and it was implied that Protoca also absorbed/rescued the egos of several other clones over the course of the campaign. [1/3?]
>>76477112RIP. I forgot to mention that Protoca was the one who woke up Port and Protoca from stasis at the start of the campaign. She's by far the most experienced member of the party in any fashion, IIRC. >LilyOne of Tachi's old teammates from before the campaign. The party rescued her from Tachi's old team, who had all perished or gone mad after Tachi's last attempt to fight the Necromancer. She was actually that session's bossfight, but enough good conversation checks and a lucky headshot in the first turn of combat allowed us to incorporate her into the group. Lily: has one arm (she tore off her mutant one after the combat with her)is outrageously fasthas moderate cybernetic enhancementsis scary good with a lightsaberand is completely muteHer and Tachi sometimes communicate using a particular form of one-handed sign language and the two of them became an item in the epilogue of the campaign. >PortPort arguably settled in as the leader of the group after she found her apocalypse legs. She started the campaign with her only armament being a psychic gun built into her left hand (because we didn't understand anything about Nechronica's rules) and began to progressively cyberize herself after it became apparent she was a weak point in the team's combat ability. She also picked up a 20mm autocannon as her main armament. She's an eternal optimist and arguably the heart of the party. It came to light over the course of the campaign that she was actually the combination of three different egos.First: she is a modified clone of one Samantha Thampson, a person of interest to the Necromancer because they actually caused a combat android to spontaneously generate a soul. Port inherited a portion of her memories and personality. Second: She latched onto some of one Cleoh Thampson's personality and memories when she woke up from stasis, who was Samantha's caretaker and an exceptional soldier. Cleoh is also the person Protoca was cloned from.[2/3]
>>76477347Third: B3-206, who was the combat robot Samantha accidentally gave a soul. It's assumed this is where Port inherited a lot of her combat ability, tactical knowledge, and technical knowledge from (Port gave herself several in-field surgeries to add cybernetic parts, like new eyes, ears, and replacing her flesh limbs with hardier replacements). Bizarrely, he was actually still functional at the time of the Port campaign and the party was able to recover him and add him into the party as an NPC helper. He was highly protective of Port and kind of became her dad figure over the course of the game, though for a lot of the time his voicebox was broken. >HopeA clone from Protoca's line, though from a different batch. She's a natural empath and has some limited psychic offensive ability, though it's hard for her to control it.Easily the most innocent member of the group; she had been in suspended animation since before humanity fell and her life had been mostly pleasant before the fall.The party found her in a tower in a decrepit city. The scientists in charge of her had tried to turn her into a massive transmitter to try and calm the rabid undead consuming the city (she was very good at calming turbulent emotions) but their efforts were ultimately not enough to save the city. Fun fact: she never picked up a single weapon until the last fight of the campaign, and then she missed every shot she took. Hope kind of became the party's moral compass, and the whole group was very protective of her once they started looking after her. >Also what it happening in the background?The white spire is a supermassive tower that extends high up in the atmosphere and currently contains one 'Subject Empyrean' who was basically the progenitor of the zombie plague that put the final nail in humanity's coffin. The Necromancer can't contain her there anymore, so he's crashing his orbital superstructure (the giant circle) into the tower to bury her. He's still on it. [3/3]
>>76477608>the combat robot Samantha accidentally gave a soul.Awesome.
>>76454598This campaign ended months ago but it was one of the best ones I was a part in

How do you guys even find games these days?Most people I know don't play due to Covid shit, and online games are a joke mostly cause people usually drop out, or dming is hell
>>76479664You'll find an average of one good online game for every fifty you join. At that point, all you can do is hope it lasts.
>>76454598Not including: - El Mozahem, party-betraying havlin rogue (whose sword now belongs to Rory) - Sylmuir, swampy druid rezzing the GMPC off-screen - Dempsy, retired to beet farm and commit piracy
>>76479664Nrarly all my games ever have been online so findibg players and GMs has gotten easier since more people are online and more people have free time to spend on camapigns and short games.
I actually have a commission of my lads that I got in honor of our finale. From left to right:Yuuki "Fuji' Fujikawa - A sniper infiltrator adept who's also the youngest of the team, kinda. He's about the closest thing to a shonen hero you'll find in the 6th world. A little bit of Nero from DMC in there. Now with cool cyberarm to replace one he lost.Pinball - He has a real name but 'Pinball' fits better. Rampant pyromancy. Norse tradition. Working on becoming a better person. Could probably burn down all of CalFree if he tried.Tom "Tom" Lastname - A genetic experiment that escaped from captivity. Severe amnesia and psychopathy from supersoldier training. Also he thinks he is a child of the 80s. He's the face and despite his extremely weak build, always pulls out some bs to win the day."Uber" - If you're there, D, sorry. I can't remember how to spell his name. Prodigy child of cyberware engineers. He was orphaned by a group acting on behalf of a megacorp (he suspects) and replaced his body almost entirely with cyberware to enact his justice. Street Sam to end all street sams.Kitt - AI hacker and the actual youngest of the group, clocking in at 5 years old, (though arguably she's more emotionally mature than Fuji). Terribly unlucky rolls but the only techy one in the group. Likes motorcycles. Very shy.

Here's an old party I recently redrew.My PC was the goblin sorc on the right.
>>76454598From an old 5e campaign I DMed >Half-Orc FighterNoble, level headed voice of reason. Team dad. Would be the MC of the novelization. >Halfling GOOlockKind of a dick.

Ended up actually getting stuff done the most, especially when Half-Orc Fighter wasn't around.>Human Bard (F)Basically Kagamine Rin until she fused with a powerful artifact that made her moe Odin. Very cute.>Human Bard (M)Generic Human Bard, without the horny. Ended up running the party's HQ once the player had to drop out. >Human Battlemaster ArcherVaguely Asian, flighty and mysterious. Searching for her sister, whose soul was in a cursed fox mask.>Human BerserkerNigh-unkillable lolicon mad with attack. Much more obviously Asian than Battlemaster.

>>76484391Because I'm not a very skilled artist. The 'cracks' on her mouth and eye are facial scarring/iris damage from when she took a full power rifle round through the back of her head at, like, five yards. It split her jaw in half and scrambled her skull up something good. The crack on her chest is just from her armor being old and anything else is probably my lazy attempt at hatching/crosshatching.

>>76486459Looks fun, though kangaroos have been ruined for me.
I'm too lazy to make a picture.A former policeman with a Polish surname, he tries to defend moral actions, most actively rushes at the enemy, receives the most injuries.A cowardly hacker girl who avoids any conflict by simply running away. Yes, even in the last battle in the game.A young and charismatic priest of Italian descent. Despite the image of a good shepherd, he is actually a nihilist and pathological liar. He never fights himself, in the second half of the game he got a personal slave bodyguard. He is not evil, he simply prefers to solve problems in the most effective way, even if it seems to others disgusting. In the end, he was right.Heir to wealthy parents, a guy with a submachine gun and a credit card.Autistic friend of a rich guy. Often loses touch with reality, is afraid of the priest.Blissful healer.
Our party for Tomb of Annihilation.The firbolg sadly died wrestling a wereboar, and was replaced by the human barbarian Irek (whose drawing I have been extremely lazy about finishing). Irek is a native Chultan but doesn't look or act the part of either a Chultan or a barbarian. Weaker than many who choose the warrior life, he is instead blessed by the wild whim of magic.Trakas has mellowed from travelling the jungle for 3 months. While still obsessed with mechanisms and death, he's a little nicer to his fellow party members, and is attempting to raise funds by selling his inventions.Wildal Dreambrew is a halfling fighter who fancies himself a heroic sort. Prone to spontaneous acts of goodness and derring-do no matter how much hot water it lands him in. He has grown a little cynical after being burned a few times, but doesn't let it stop him.Rorgand the dragonborn sorcerer has had a rough time in the jungle. He suffered so many injuries his leg is crippled, and he cannot move on-foot easily. Fortunately his giant lizard is there to be his legs in almost every situation. He's still an edgy jerk though.Aeringr Galdan is dwarf.
>>76454598What system would you use to play this party, and how would you play them?
I don't have one of my party, but i have this one
>>76486459Tell us about your party.Also what is the deal with that mushroom cloud shaped building?

>>76461376The artist just took the requested pose and ran with it. Since nobody corrected him (we actually encouraged it) the dumptruck ass remained.>>76475875>What is the plot?A team of students who joined Beacon a year before RWBY/JNPR started. After a few adventures we met Ruby from the future, who time-traveled back to stop the Fall of Beacon from happening so things don't go totally belly-up. Due to her and our presence the timeline of events changed anyway, but it managed to stay fairly close to the way things went in the series. Then Future Rubes double-crossed us to steal all the power for herself and ran away, so now we have to chase her down.
>>76490083The way I phrased my question was rude. I apologise.Thank you for sharing some of the fun you've had with your group with us.

Haven't seen one of these for a minute.
This campaign really escalated.We finished it last year. The bbeg summoned a giant robot from another dimension to blow up the world and we went inside it and killed its CPU.Then it turned out the bbeg wasn't the REAL bbeg, he was just possessed, and we went to the fucking moon to kick the real bbeg's ass.Shit was so cash.
5e isn't really at all suited to anything but retardedly exaggerated high fantasy shit but i've made some DM decisions that everyone else was cool with and we've got something good going
>>76454618Your art style rules. Very kawaii but surprisingly detailed.
>>76497057>Tommy is an alienFollowing the canon of The Room very closely, I see.
>>76494685What system are you using?
>>76500594Wanna do a oneshot?Do you mind playing/running online?
>>76480525What is the plot here.
>>76494019The Princess is NotByzantine, the dude's NotGoth mercenary and the Druid a NotPict.The goblin is a goblin.
>>76499036Thanks, you can get a lot of mileage out of doing a quick sketch and throwing a colour gradient over it. Though that particular pic is just me adapting the art my players turned in for their characters.
One of us had covid but he was able to get better, so we can start playing again.
>>76504684Cool.What forms have most of the encounters taken?Given this is a war for an empire I'm guessing the means by which combat where players actions aren't lost in the massive clashes going takes a bit of creatice thinking so I would like to pick your brain on how you do this.
>>76506391What sort of tone does this camapign have?
>>76506393Up until now it has mostly been a wilderness adventure while being pursuit by assassins/bounty hunters as the party makes its way to the border.I'm planning on using the ACK supplement for massed battles and have the party doing some smaller scale stuff on the margins.
>>76464203I love the guy on the left just moseying towards the monster
I wish quarantine hadn’t killed our campaign
>first time DMing>figure I'll wing some shit>tell players to just "make your character a guild aspirant" and other than that to "have fun :^)">came up with weirdly symmetrical quartet of two moral extremist bruisers and ethically ambiguous twink magical supportsIt was pretty fun, they almost died and might die the next time everybody's in the same state and we can have another session. Fun and engaging characters, I wish I was a better DM for them.The Luxodon's basically a mobster with the belief that Orzhov is the most stabilizing and continuously beneficial guild in the city, the minotaur is a bouncer at a shitty pub and Boros aspirant, the Vedalkin is a bureaucratic pencil pusher hoping for a cushy Azorius office job, and the dead guy is a Dimir secret agent trying to unearth knowledge on how to make being dead a little less shitty.
>>76460588Absolutely based rwby watcherWhat system did you use btw? The fanmade d10 one, D&D, exalted, or something else?
from a group where the entire campaign plot is "we wanna find and kill Big Monsters for the glory of the Hunt" and most of the players had never played before
>>76460588I get huge "But i dont WANNA be in the fucking photo" energy from the first dudeAlso what system did you use?
>>76461176Not invovled, but why you care?, a porn game with a character editor is as good as anything else.
>>76508779The 4 of us are all really good friends so it inevitably becomes silly. The campaign is mostly generic heroic fantasy.
>>76511584>I get huge "But i dont WANNA be in the fucking photo" energy from the first dude>>76460588How did you do it.
>>76492282>those namesthis can't be real
>>76492282I didn't know 4chins could do "ø" at all
>>76467923>How did Alexander J Peridot become a lord?>Why and how did Saint Valeria L. Roalive get excommunicated?Basically heresy; for her second level she took sorcerer so she spent her downtime learning to harness her innate arcane abilities. Someone at the church found out, and she was given the option of leave or die.>Your BBEG sounds like something out of Irish mythology.He's been a lot of fun because the DM really gets into character whenever we encounter the guy. Picture a smooth-talking scam artist on the street, only his scam is that he wants to kill you and burn down the whole city. We've learned there's some rules to dealing with the guy and he can basically be made to fuck off if we say the right things.>>76486393>What class is Tim?Fighter, but he's very poorly optimized. >What's so cool about the spear?It's got stacked enchantments in a world where that doesn't happen. Anything stronger than +1 is considered pretty much impossible to get and +3 and up is the shit myths are made of.We found the spear in an old shrine dedicated to a pagan god of the sun. Wouldn't you know it, after the time spent learning what it's got we learned it has +1, returning, and a light-flavored elemental damage buff that causes fire damage and has a very low chance of blinding the enemies. Eras was a sword-and-board paladin but when we found the spear he was like "Yep, no, I'm a spear guy now" and underwent a few months worth of retraining to be able to use it right.And now for the big question:>How did Alexander J Peridot become a lord?>How did Alex become a lord?Sit around the campfire, and I will tell you the tale of one Lord Alexander J Peridot, and his rise to glory.Early in the adventure, before we were even aware of the main story, we were in a farming village hunting down some tax-evading bandits. Two days into our search, the village came under attack by the highway men, and a fight was on!>To be continued
>>76513799The fight was on between the party at the time and the bandits, with the people of the village joining in since we raised a fuckload of morale. While it was a rather bog-standard fight, the funny thing was that one of the npc farmers who joined in, armed with only his fists, got one of the luckiest set of rolls we'd ever seen. The enemy he was fighting didn't land a single hit, but the farmer got like 3 crits in a row IIRC. We promptly began memeing the hell out of this random NPC and how he was a badass but hardworking man. Humble, but willing to throw down if he needed to. The DM promptly gave this otherwise-background character a name and we kept him in our hearts as the adventure continued.Flash-forward about 5 or so levels and one of the PCs died via massive fire damage (3 guesses how), but the DM said the player could make a new character at 1 lower level, so we could continue playing. The player, remembering back, asked the DM to make Alexander into a PC. At first, the DM was like "Well what's the reason this humble farmer is going to join you on your quest." To which the Player responds "One of his cows is dead. He must avenge the cow." and boom, Alexander joined the quest.He had no real starting gear, so to compensate he was made a grapple-based brawler. A slew of good rolls pretty much cemented him as an unstoppable wrestling force of nature. This came to a head a few sessions back, where a dragon was besieging one of the major cities. After being forced to land by ballista bolts, the dragon found itself face-to-face with a shirtless man of unparalleled wrestling prowess, who proceeded to quite literally punch it until it surrendered.For his absolutely amazing victory, the Emperor personally came out and gave Alexander a regal name (gems in this setting are tied to royalty, so people with gemstone names are quite literally only able to have them by royal decree), as well as a family name (J-something I forget) and the lord title.
>>76495357Who is the looter?
>>76462141i really like that the drawing looks like it was done on some parchment or something
does anyone have advice on finding an online group to play with? can we make threads looking for players or will they just get removed? im just lonely and want to have funny antics with ppl ffs :(
>>764545985e campaign, pretty fun!
I need to actually get around to finishing this painting. I have like....weeks before the campaign is over and I really should try to have it done before then.
Cant draw to save my life, but oh well. From left to right: The shit stirrer, who despite the player claiming that she is just strong, given the height to weight ratio and the STR and CON stats she is clearly obese, and is trying to start shit in the group at every opportunity. Won't last long in the group. The wanderer, perhaps the most sane member of the group if a bit bland as far as we know, tries to convince the others to take sensible steps in solving problem, with mediocre results The hero wannabe, the only human. Due to absurd luck rolling dice and original choices resulting in showy victories he is actually succeeding in his aspirations at fast pace.The grudger. A dwarfette tired of everyone and everything, only happy when covered in gore. Lowkey the backbone of the group.The cherryboy. That is actually the character concept. An street rat that has somehow become the most idealist star-eyed motherfucker out there. His parterns will kill with extreme prejudice anyone trying to steal his purity.So far we are having a blast, with surprisingly good team dynamics when the shit stirrer can't make it to the games.
>>76488675It's a good start.
>>76513799>>76513994Thank you for answering my questions and for regaling us with the story of how Alex. The NPC and humble farmer who became a hero then a PC, then a legend.
Since we just had a character leave one of my current games and now has introduced a new character (the player is the same though), I've decided to make a sheet for it.The game is Rogue Trader, and it was originally envisioned as a "light-hearted" game based around xenos in Commorragh. Based on what's been going on it's actually been fairly serious, but a bunch of crazy shit's happened to the party so far.The new character is the Chaos Space Marine so things are quickly starting to go in an entirely different direction since he's making sure to live up to the "Chaos" part of it.
Yeah, screw this, i just found out there's a template after i'm done messing around on paint for hours?! fuck this..
>>76523902It's pretty cool art anon, don't knock yoruself.
>>76517575Yeah, I thought it would be cool to make it something that could plausibly exist in-universe.Considering that Sera was determined to later become an Inquisitor in the game epilogue I thought it'd be fitting.
Apologies for the shitty drawings.
>>76524773I like it anon, lots of nice details. What's the campaign about so far?
>>76525115>What's the campaign about so far?Sandbox campaign, the party initially started out travelling with a caravan with the shared aim of getting to a particular city (New Canaan) but for their own individual reasons. It's mostly been a campaign driven by their personal stories and odd-jobs, with plenty of different villains to drive stories. The goal was doing a Firefly/Cowboy Bebop/Mandalorian style thing, and that's precisely what it was.
>>76523902His looks good. Thank you for your hard work and for sharing it.
Look it is a desert campaign, I had to draw a cape for everyone and I didn't want them to be the same color.
>>76525633Also Misha might develop a case of addiction for Skalia's "Ant Haul" potions.The long-term effect of potions on camels is not fully tested in this era.
>>76488622> What system?GURPS> How would you play themPainfully. The TL difference would make things all kinds of unbalanced. With guns in the picture, I'd suggest the (mage?) on bottom left focus on support spells and forget any damage dealing abilities, and the girl on the right ditch the handgonne and get a real gun.
I like this thread.
>>76524773Why apologize? This is cool.
My bardsmen party. Started out from a meme "let's all play bards!" and became something much more grand.From left to right;Natalie:> Human bard (valor)> Sword and board tank> Cheery and naive to a fault> Thicc hp pool> Literally forces enemies to attack her> Pretty stupid> Fearless dootThomas Aka "Rusty"> Human bard (swords) paladin multiclass> Scary close range deeps> Always hiding and disguising himself.

>>76454598After a thousand hours in GIMP.
Made this for my party a game ago.
>>76521040This campaign sounds awesome.
>>765301732 dmpcs? Jeez, sounds like you guys need more players.
I spent Way too much Time making this.but anyway have my black crusade party
>>76510360>>76511584We started in Pathfinder of all things, but after recently preventing the Fall of Beacon we're moving to FATE, since it's a more narrative system.
The GM drew everyone worth a damn in his campaign. It was only after we players saw ourselves that we realized just how boring we were to look at.
>>76532188Nice disney vibes on the villains
>>76532188fml I wish I could draw half as good as that.
>>76532188Ha. Wow, I looked at the pic before I read and was just about to reply you're exact same comment, Anon. I'm sorry.
>>76533668>>76536381>>76532188People should be less scared of making snowflakes. Lean into the cheesiness. Just try not to go overboard, but even if you do? An overly snowflakey character is more interesting than a boring one.
I'm having a session 0 tonight for a new Star Wars campaign. I'm probably gonna play a mando merc so I did this quick thing for fun.I don't know about the rest of the party yet though.
>>76504866Who are these characters?>>76531401 Tell us about your party.>>76532043 This game totally sounds like it's worth spending way too much time on.God I want to play a character based on chaos Commander now.I'm currently waiting to play a young hot shot semi-daemonic sky priate captain who got hit with a withering curse that basically gave him darth vader syndrome though so I've definately got things to look forward too.Also a mystery character in a short game one of my players is going to run for my group while I recover from GM burnout.>>76525633 Is this Pathfinder or 4e game or some other system?>>76525507 Nice.>>76523902 How long has this campaign been going?>>76521040 are you using the standard Rogue Trader system or are you taking the Rogue Trader premise and using a different system to run it?>>76518027 How did this campaign get started?>>76536493I played a pseudo mandalorian once in a short Star wars game. If you have half as much fun as I did you're going to have a blast.
>>76479943This made me chuckle. Cool party.
>>76536584>are you using the standard Rogue Trader system or are you taking the Rogue Trader premise and using a different system to run it?No, it's the Rogue Trader system. We just don't really have stuff like ship management or profit factor or so on and so forth.Come to think of it, it's basically using the basic premise for Dark Heresy with the Rogue Trader ruleset, since it's loosely been a series of different missions. The GM has also used the Endeavor system from Black Crusade as well since it's a bit more fitting to what we're up to, and the Space Marine is technically a Deathwatch PC minus all the Deathwatch stuff.It's been pretty fun so far, even though my character (the Fire Warrior) hasn't had a very nice time.
>>76531576Our friend group is pretty small. We'd probably not have two entire ones were it not for how the story went. It puts a lot of pressure on the DM to run so many characters, and it tends to show. I think it's part of the reason he tends to forget what they do or even that they're there sometimes.
Fire Emblem campaign using a houseruled version of Iron Heroes. Been going for 2.5 years now, still going strong.
>>76532188>Normal people having to deal with complete wackosThat's one of the most fun ways to play an RPG, though
>>76538239I feel your pain.
>>76536493Very nice art.
>>76532188Looks fucking amazing. There's so much personality dripping from the NPCs and antagonists. I'd really want to know about those edgy goths down there. Are they a cult or a family?
>>76543241Both. The parents are the two on the furthest left, and the rest are their many daughters and one son.The thing about our villains is, they're closer to rivals than actual opponents. We don't fight them, in fact we talk, interact, and even sang a song to try and bring us over to their side on things.The campaign has a very Disney feel to it, out of combat. In combat it's full of people getting gutted and ripped apart or getting an axe to the skull, but out of combat it's just a darker themed Disney Cartoon.
>>76532188This is great. Does your GM have an art gallery or anywwhere we can view his work?
>>76543387Not really unfortunately. Though one of our earlier campaigns was done in the style of the rest of the thread.
>>76543588Oh shit, I remember that image. Shame that there's no way to follow your GMs art. All of the characters are filled with life and soul! Give him all our best. He should hear how good we think he is.
>>76532188>>76543365>>76543588Oh fuck, I thought this party was just a fabrication. /tg/ assured me so.
>>76462195That motto genuinely scares me somewhat
>>76532188I thought I recognized some of those NPCs as PCs from >>76543588.
>>76532188>>76539013Yeah, it’s dope, don’t feel bad.Can really give games a heavier more engaging type of feel.
>>76486459>Pudz, Tom Jews, and a RooI'm extremely interested
>>76532188Good shit, I want more. MORE.
Shit drawing for my shit homebrew, its not the whole party but who fucking cares
I have so many wierd and different characters I couldn't write them all, but I wish you were there anons.
>>76538902What is Iron Heroes like? What were the changes you made primary focused around changing/adding/shaving down to make the system serve your purposes better?Was this your group's first game together?>>76548090What kind of campaign is it?What is the tone and setting?>>76544222Yeah it seems to practise what it preaches a bit there. Good motto.>>76543365What scene/memory is each of these frames from?Are the smaller ones the villain's kids, neices and nephews, followers, adopted, personal assistants, apprentices or what?Are their Musical numbers in this game!? Tell me about that please. How do they happen and what form do they take?>>76504684Oh wow fleabag grew up a lot compared to the little puppy he was in the first drawing.How much further into the campaign does this image depict?>>76510061They all definately did the work of building characters who have personal reasons to work to join this or that guild.I hope you are all able to get back together hale and hearty soon and remain the same afterward.>>76511059Neat.What's the story behind how this group of players all came together for their first tabletop experience?Do they have an NPC handler who does their shopping and gets them work or sells what they catch and and such?How are they taking to their first table top experience?
>>76543365>but out of combat it's just a darker themed Disney Cartoon.How do you pull off this cartoonist energy?
>>76550664The GM just draws scenes that we players linger on too long. If we really hang seem to enjoy what's happening in the moment, he'll draw it. But we know that now, so we started to abuse it.Yes, the smaller goths are the children of the two older goths. They're a big happy necro-cult family, Addams style.Yes, the GM wrote lyrics and picked out snazzy music to sing them to, and he's never taken a drama class, or choir. He can do like 10 voices all of which sound like Disney characters. >>76550735Mainly, the entire story of the campaign revolves around our backstories, and the player characters coming into their own and impressing their remaining parents, elders, etc. We also seem to heavily value life, so the only enemies that get gutted are the ones who have proven they're no more valuable to the world than mad beasts. Most of our intelligent enemies are either defeated through diplomacy or beaten unconscious with non-lethal damage and cuffed and taken back to be locked up in prison. Our "villains" aren't trying to destroy the world, or bring about a new age of darkness. They're more like rivals that want to solve the same issues the party does, they just use more lethal and underhanded means of achieving the same goals, but never so much as to warrant getting more than a bloody nose and maybe getting tied to a lamp-post while the party deals with the real issue. The Goth family are a bunch of evil cleric-necromancers, but we have never actually caught them raising the dead. They're just far too much fun to remove from the game, and too helpful as a barometer for how heroic we are in contrast.Our resident power-gamer is the Viking, and he's the one the villains are always trying to win over with offers of money, fame, and his every desire. He never takes the bait though, he trusts his build to carry him through the campaign.
>>76552280That is amazing.Wow.So can you tell us more about the plot lines of the various PCs?
>>76532043God damn I love being seen this way, I thought I was being like a hardass. Its nice to see that I'm taking care of the next generation of young fresh chaos worshippers properly.
My current Dark Heresy party, I made art for in in the John Blanche style so everyone in the group new to 40k kinda gets the vibe.>Forge World Adept Enforcer, general stick-in-the-mud, my character.>Noble Born Arbitrator, violent crooked psycho.>Forge World Scum, Technomat, former informant to his planet's enforcers.>Noble Born Psyker, brother of the Arbitrator, nicest person in the party, has brain damage from shrapnel in his head that made him simple.>>76532043Motherfucking Ogata... I love it.
>>76554622Thats not blanche styleI can tell whats going on, and it doesn't look like someone with hemoriods shit on it
>>76550664>What's the story behind how this group of players all came together for their first tabletop experience?It was about 10 minutes of Rrath's player and I going back and forth with "man i wanna kill big monsters in the name of nothing but glory" and "what if... we played DnD? jkjk... unless" before my brother overheard and said "I would love nothing more than to DM this game" so we got a few other friends in on it and the rest is history>Do they have an NPC handler who does their shopping and gets them work or sells what they catch and and such?Nope we just waltz our uncivilized asses into town, ask the nearest local where the biggest monster is, and go fight it>How are they taking to their first table top experience?Everyone seems to be enjoying it so far
Had another session yesterday, in which my group fought the Bull of the Heavens. Despite the grievous injury, Edmond proceeded to get up and then drag the bull into the pit via lucky opposed strength rolls.I was told that that level of damage would have killed anyone else in the party, and probably anyone else at all.The pistol in the background was found as a remnant of the world before the march of the wizards, it has ten micro-rockets for ammunition.
>>76555893Please tell us about them.
Doodle from our first long campaign, we started freshman year of college and finished graduation year. It was a pretty bog standard party dynamic but the classics are there for a reason

>>76560257Fuck off cunt
>>76560323>so uh how do you keep this balanced? We actually all have a similar amount of experience points (and we all started at rank 3 which helps quite a bit in leveling the playing field.)Having a more tanky character (the Space Marine) will actually help balance things out for the PCs bit more, since combat was essentially high-speed rocket tag before that.>Does it work well? It works well enough. >What kind of plot threads do you have?Mostly, we've been having to do different jobs for different organizations, enforced through either blackmail or getting paid. But it's stuff like>hey why don't you guys investigate a craftworld trapped in the webway, also there might be some Chaos stuff there but don't worry about that>oh yeah, go and find this artifact down in the Old City, I'm sure you'll be fine>So, there's an abandoned arena that might have ghosts in there, why don't you check that out>sup, we want to to wipe out a wych cult, here's a bomb for you to plant to do soFurther complicating things is that usually the mandrakes have usually been behind things all along.
>>76560444Sounds pretty cool. Honestly for a xenos heavy game I am surprised there is no ork character or something like that.
>>76560468There was originally going to be one but the guy playing him had life stuff get in the way. The campaign probably would have gone in a much different direction if an Ork was on the team, I'll say that much already.But yeah, even though it's only three players it's been a pretty fun time.Also, here's another picture I did of my guy before he got the edgy costume change.
>>76560371It's literally already in the thread. Source: I am in his group and helped him make it. Go find it if you care so much.
>>76521040What the fuck is a Laer?
>>76456536Is that a space marine or just a really buff human/abhuman?
>>76560614They're a race of alien snake people who got corrupted by Chaos, and it's heavily implied in-universe that the Sslyth are the remains of that.The fact that the Sslyth are really only present on Commorragh (which dodged the birth of Slaanesh) helps that argument.

>>76569810We received a letter from the bishop of the town, the bull has had an arrangement with the town, each year they would give it a sacrifice of one virginal, teenage girl, in exchange the bull would ward off other monstrosities and not kill the rest of them.It had killed 18 groups of Hunters sent to slay it before us, and we only succeeded because we figure out the secret of it's body. All attacks that were sent to it would sink into the extra-dimensional space that it's form created. We resolved this issue with a pit of water 30 feet wide and 30 feet deep (the bull was only two stories tall). When we finally managed to force it into the pit, all the water was sucked into it's body and then we collapsed the dirt wall on it.It begged for it's life before the end, but we had seen it's chambers, filled with corpses of the girls who starved in there, hundreds of them, we were not feeling merciful.The father of the sacrifice chosen this year was an incredibly wealthy farmer, he fronted the cost for hiring us (the cost of which is mandated and regulated by the church). The letter was received by our contact with the church, who then sent it to us.
>>76570475Damn. That's brutal.Good job taking that asshole down.I hope I can make my villain's so deserving of no mercy and satisfying to expunge from the world.Can you ask your GM for me if (s)he has any advice on how to make enemies that are so deserving of their fate and satisfying to get rid of?

>>76475931> That is not what ended up happening, instead the beast took one look at me, detecting my hindrance of The Hunter! (Monsters of the Mists prioritize this character for attacks) and summoned the phantoms of those it had already killed in the past.Uh oh.> (in case it's not obvious, my character was entirely built around preparing for the fights and then tanking as much as possible, my ability to deal damage is only secondary to my ability to not die.)How did you accomplish being very tanky in Savage Worlds? Isn’t that system pretty lethal. Then again I don’t know what edition you are playing either. I’m going to get my first taste of Savage Worlds in January when I play a cursed sky pirate on Mars. We’re using SWADE. If that’s the edition you are also using please share any advice on how to play in general and on being tanky in particular.>>76476016Thank goodness for exploding dice.> I only have one more picture in the style of the previous, and I deliberately didn't put much effort into it because I still have the bull to draw once we confront it (next session, we spent 2 sessions investigating and preparing for it)What sort of preparation and legwork do you do? Ask people about the stories and hunt down sightings of the monster, go out to inspect places it has attacked to learn its preferences and methods? Go and talk to it if it is given to speak with people when its not slaughtering them?> The other picture is when we are attacked by individuals who pick the equipment off of hunters that fight the bull and die, they got greedy and tried to kill us themselves as to preserve the loot it's crushing hoovesDid you teach them the error of their ways?
>>76508856 > Up until now it has mostly been a wilderness adventure while being pursuit by assassins/bounty hunters as the party makes its way to the border.> I'm planning on using the ACK supplement for massed battles and have the party doing some smaller scale stuff on the margins.Cool.

>>76459314Wait a second... I know you...Lord Vik?
>>76554622This painting kicks ass.
>>76575532>How do you get around how restrictive the character advancement system is? It was the bane of my existence the one time I tried playing Rogue Trader using the system that was made for it.I've played a decent amount of Rogue Trader before and I don't really consider the system to be all that restrictive, especially if you are using things like alternate classes/careers. That can really expand things out and I highly recommend doing so.With this campaign, starting at a higher level (rank 3) made us much more capable and we were able to choose from a wider range of abilities. For instance, the GM let my character take the Pathfinder alternate rank (while he didn't actually receive the official title or training, the GM fluffed it as his already having a talent for stealth combined with quickly learning the kind of carefulness that anyone would need just to get around in Commorragh without being stabbed).
>>76575553>The one who was killed or the one doing the killing?Invictus did the killing and later on got killed (rather quickly, since the other characters were in the next room and Frost was one of them)Seriously, tech-priests can be scary in melee combat.
>>76575515My character build is rather simple, and only really works because of the hindrance : The Slayer! (monsters target this character above others for attacks) which is custom to the setting of my DM (I forgot the savage world name for such, storyteller i think)I started with Rich, Filthy Rich (also homebrewed to increase income throughout campaign), and Brawny. This allowed me to start the game with full plate armor, a horse, a shield and rapier. The Shield and Rapier give me a total parry bonus of +3 (+2 vs ranged attacks) and the armor gives me total coverage with +3 toughness. Brawny gives me an additional point of toughness and the carrying capacity to not be penalized by the weight of my equipment. I max fighting out at character creation, and put the rest into riding and notice. I started the game with 11 parry and 10 toughness.My strategy is simple, provoke the monster into attacking me, and save all my bennies for soaking damage. Remarkably, the first time I've been actually damaged was against the bull. I've been keeping track of all the bennies that the dm has spent against me (8 across 3 battles thus far) vs the rest of my party (3 ranged characters, 1 other melee)We're playing the most recent edition (Deluxe Explorers edition), but that just allows this build to go more tanky if we weren't doing this setting. If you pick up an arcane background and get the power Deflection, you can raise your parry by 4 or thereabout for one turn of setup. Picking up a spear doubles the range in which others have to target your parry instead of 4 for ranged attacks and increases parry by one more. In truth, the best way to play as a tank is get really close to whatever you're fighting and save your bennies for soaking damage. The hardest part is making sure the monster attacks you rather than your allies, and grappling is godsend for such (target that you are grappling must beat your strength check or -4 to do anything other than trying to break out)
>>76577344In general we take 2 to 3 sessions to prepare for the monster. The more we can figure out the better. One of our characters has psychometric powers (can see the "memories" of things he touches) which is godsend for investigation.Our preparation for the Soul Eater was rather simple, we interviewed the survivors (of which three have remained from 18 or so victims) and then did our best to puzzle together the best's abilities and intelligence, then we went to the places that the beast attacked and had our nexus walker (the psychometric fellow) watch the past for any further clues.Our impression of the beast was that it was somewhat intelligent, could mimic the voices of it's victims and devise crude traps for others using said voices, and was as large as a large carriage. Thus our plan to chain it down.It's ability to summon the souls of those it devours was completely unexpected, as the beast did not need to use it for any of it's former victims (being almost entirely mere villagers and travelers). Unfortunately (for fortunately) The Slayer! provoked the beast into using it's trump cards immediately (our DM has rather extensive "AI" written up for the beasts, allowing him to make decisions completely impartially about their behavior).Our initial plan was to dig a great pit in the earth for it to fall in (pitfalls our my go-to suggestion for all monsters thus far, because pitfalls are amazing) but we didn't have enough manpower or time to create such a hole for it.Our next plan involved the chains, but 100 feet of such for each length, with a throwing spear at the end. Unfortunately, this proved too expensive and we had to downsize to four lengths of 25ft with barbed tips.It's incredible weakness to flame was not explicitly known to us, but when made reasonable assumption based of the accounts of two of the victims (one of which survived by hiding under a burning carriage, the other of which lashed out with a open lantern).
>>76577439The beast was only somewhat stronger than a particularly massive bear, and even with it's tricks we could have beaten it in time without the flame's immense effect. This was decidingly not the case with the bull, were that trap we had set to fail, we would have without question died. The bull was completely immune to conventional attacks (something we only discovered after our plague doctor did 21 damage only for nothing to happen. We knew the bull was weak to water in some capacity because it avoided all but the shallowest parts of the steam nearby whenever it needed to cross, but we weren't sure why (I had a private suspicion that turned out to be true the bull could be "filled up" by the water and die that way but I did not share it as I had no way to confirm or reject such and baseless speculation gets us nowhere.)The battle with the conspirators was almost laughably easy, normal people have no chance at defeating monsters, which is why we ordained hunters go out to do battle with them, they grew to confident in their ability to deal with us and suffered for it.We knew that they were looting the dead hunters and selling the equipment, and while this is unsightly it is a crime we could easily ignore, but actively attempting to kill the church-ordained, one of which was of noble blood (my character, we had to justify his wealth and the DM suggested he held the title of count but his elder sister was managing the estate) demands retribution.We attempted to take them alive, and of the six that attacked us we managed to capture 3, one of which surrendered (the frowning one on top the rocks). We then demanded to know of any conspirators to their plan (the weapons shopkeeper in town as it turns out) and drug them back for a proper execution. We first stopped by the shop and apprehended the shopkeeper before he could flee and then stopped at the church to ask the friar accompany us (we weren't quite sure if we could trust the mayor).
>>76577576The Bishop asked to speak to the conspirators (which was granted, so long as we could watch if they were to try to flee) and he ask of them if our allegations of their guilt was true (which they confessed to with bowed heads) while we sent the Friar off to ask the mayor to meet us in the middle of town, where the barely used execution stand was.He met with us there, profusely apologizing for the actions of these men, we asked him to act in his capacity as a judge and he quickly agreed. By this point most of the town was aware of what had happened and was watching the trial.The trial (if such a thrown together affair could be called such) was incredibly simple, The mayor asked each man if they had done what they were being accused of, and each one was sufficiently intimidated to speak truthfully. Not one attempted to deny, not after the disappointed face of the Bishop. Then My character drew the sword Beckoner, and walked behind the three corpses which were also in line with the men.Beckoner was a blade we had found lodged into the hide of the Soul Eater, and it had retained a measure of the beast's ability to summon up the dead. When thrust into a corpse that was still intact enough to speak, one question could be asked that would then be answered truthfully, limited to yes, no, and I don't know or approximately such.Which then I did, thrusting the blade up through the backs of each of the corpses and motioning for the mayor question them as he did the living. When that was done I handed the blade off to our nexus walker who was waiting with ritual cloth to wrap the horrid thing with, and made a quick prayer to the king of life to forgive me it's use. I made sure not to make this prayer with the blade in hand, and no one else in the party is willing to touch the thing.Then the mayor gave the men their sentences (death) and motioned for a guard to set up the nooses as the Bishop gave the men their last rites
>>76577661Truthfully we had not wished to kill any humans if we were able to avoid such, but the law was clear in this case. What we could do was ask for clemency on behalf of the man who surrendered, which was granted. (the mercy was my suggestion, the rest of my party was fine with such so long as he was in some way punished)That man (more of a boy really, barely 20 year of age) went to the almost never-used prison they had in the town for an amount of time I did not care to hear (I think some years of community service was proposed by the mayor in the end, which the boy accepted without complaint).Then they were hanged, and the corpses were very quickly buried and given funerals. It was a ghastly affair in truth and it was a shame that decided on this path.
