ADBZDnD Adventurer's Log

Posted by Android 17 (Monitors) at Apr 11 2018, 10:26 PM. One comment

Since last weekend, it's the intention to run a session of Dungeons and Dragons for members of ADBZRPG every weekend on roll20.net. I started this endeavor with a call for a steady cast, and I do believe that we've found a pretty enthusiastic group of 4 or 5, time and personal lives permitting, to start to run a campaign with members, that is somewhat a modified version of the RPG's universe into a medieval, high-fantasy style TTRPG. Here, I will provide a weekly log for last weekend's sessions, and you can all read along if you so desire.

Why do I do this, if I can just keep this private between me and the players? Because I adore the idea of a community effort like this. I've put a lot of work into building a world that connects back into the RPG at times where it can, and I hope sincerely that this is not necessarily something that will only be a shared experience between a small part of it. Time is always an issue, but we try to make it work between 3 continents and widely disparate timezones as it is, so please do not feel discouraged to ask me or the players if there's ever a chance of sitting in for a session with a fresh character of your own! This is, of course, only one of many options. Feel free to approach me on discord as well with ideas to translate the RPG into a DnD setting - be they reworks of our items in a DnD style, an idea for a planetary feature as a location in the region that is its DnD analogue, or ways to incorporate an NPC from your RPs as a character in the world! Some of you might not have the time to play, but would love the idea of helping me manage the world by playing a long-distance villain for the party. I am always open to conversation about this campaign, and I want you all to feel as involved as you have time and enthusiasm to be - within limits.

So, without further ado, what happened in our first session?

We start near the town of Frozen Wharf, in the north-western part of the region of Pefu. A name that stuck throughout the ages, though it has been a long time since the shores were frozen solid. Our journey begins when a Halfling by the name of Finnian and a Wood Elf called Maragai are brought in from a harbor in Toffit. Maragai's journey has brought her in from Avalon, but the forests between Avalon and Pefu recently have not been fit for travel, and she was forced to take the long way 'round.

Arriving safely to the small harbor near Frozen Wharf, the two travelers meet up with Renegar, a Half-Orc living in Frozen Wharf and working on one of the relatively small fishing boats that sail from its docks. It's not a glamorous living for Renegar, especially after his work on a proper merchant vessel, but trade has dried up with the recent tensions between Pefu's neighboring states. Joining up with Renegar, Finnian and Maragai make their way into town to see about their intentions and goals from here, while the Half-Orc heads towards town to sell off the latest catch to pay the crew.

It is upon traversing the outskirts of town, where they quickly notice something is amiss. There is nobody toiling the fields; fields important for the daily lives of everyone in town, not merely the farmers. They move through the farmhouses and patches of crops, when they stumble upon a cart set up in the middle of a crossroads. Within the cart, tied and bound, is another Half-Orc, by the name of Torthok. This adventuring warrior had been captured in the dead of night by a gang of bandits that make themselves known to the group as soon as they help Torthok undo his bindings. A young boy among the bandits indicated Renegar as 'another one', and hostilities ensue.

Out on his rounds as a member of the town's guard, the Krynn named Krono comes upon this display and charges into battle against these bandits assaulting the party. The bandit threat has grown steadily over the past weeks or even months, with the steady decline in manpower among the town guard, as most are conscripted into the Pefuan military to aid in the construction of a large outpost on the border with Damaskia, called Stormguard. Krono is no stranger to reports of robberies and muggins on the road, but never something so bold. The bandits are dispatched after a curious battle in which the Half-Orc were specifically targeted, but not for death. Among the bodies of the bandits, the group finds a note claiming to be an official decree from the council in High Pefu, the region's capitol. It offers reward for any and all halfbreeds delivered into forced labor. Speaking with the townsfolk reveals that these bandits had stalked the roads leading in from the docks for several days, lying in wait of a Half-Orc they had been tipped off lived in Frozen Wharf. Capturing Torthok that night, they had been convinced to have caught Renegar, as it seems, and they had taken their time in trying to rob the folk in the outskirts as a bonus.


The group stays the night in the care of the townsfolk in the outskirts to tend to their wounds and regain their strength. Come morning, the group journeys into the town of Frozen Wharf proper. They arrive to the news that a member of the Council Guard has arrived to town and is harassing the lawmaster. Krono, as part of the town guard, feels personally slighted by this arrogant appearance and goes to confront this person.

The group comes upon Sir Brynn of the Council Guard; a man covered in shining, golden armor, and with a personality as direct and unavoidable as his presentation. With him, one other, personal guard, and a man in tattered, brown robes, carrying a ledger and the knight's effects. The group presents the decree they had found on the body of one of the bandits, but Brynn discards it; literally tearing it to shreds. He claims there is no possible way that decree could be official, lacking a seal and stating common sense that no ruler would be so careless as to call for the public purge of an entire race. The guardsman argues with Krono over the responsibility for this bandit crisis, and the two almost come to blows before the promise of payment is offered. He offers them a token reward for the dispatched bandits, and promises further payment for the deliverance of, specifically, ring fingers from the bodies of future slain bandits.

During their initial visit to Frozen Wharf, Maragai and Finnian find themselves attracted to several establishments - Finnian finds himself a place to drink and inquire with the townsfolk about the increasingly dangerous bandits around the area, and Maragai goes in search of books for information on the local environment. Renegar, meanwhile, goes off to deliver the cargo of fish that he had brought in from the docks the day before. Upon arriving at the warehouse, the storemaster seems to not entirely be expecting to see Renegar, and tell him as much - he should have been there the day before, and he refuses to pay for the four barrels of salmon offered to him, claiming there is no possible way he can sell day-old, unpreserved fish at market. In the end, Renegar walks with 15 gold to pay the entire crew of his ship, as well as the harbormaster, adding another problem to the growing list.

This is where session 1 concluded.

Trunks' RPer of the Week

Posted by Trunks (Members) at Apr 6 2018, 08:02 AM. 4 comments

Whatup nigels.

By semi-popular demand I have decided to bring back the fan favourite of "RPer of the Week"! For those unfamiliar with the concept, I (and maybe others) will look at RPs posted that week and give feedback on what is good / needs improvement, and then pick one ultimate winner.

For those saying "but why can't i get extra bonuses for this," I gotcha covered nigels. Once a month I will be releasing the coveted "RPer of the Month!" award, which is accompanied by 10 RPC.

So come one, come all, and let me read your shit. DM me links on Discord and I'll read and critique. In advance warning, I won't JUST give compliments, although hopefully my criticisms will be constructive.

Roleplayer of the Week

How many people would like to see this come back? I forcibly nominate Trunks to bring this back, as he has been very interested in others' RP threads lately. I think it would be nice for some people to be rewarded, even with just attention if nothing else, and help motivation to increase quality. It would also add exposure, letting people read more RPs than usual.

Yani/Shin Pad bday.

Welcome to Of the Season Awards. In case you somehow don't know, every three months, the community nominates users and threads they have found noteworthy that are then voted on. The top voted on member/RP/battle wins a prize! This thread is for nominations--voting threads will be posted after the deadline!

Nominations Ends at 11:59 EST Saturday, April 7th.

Threads must be COMPLETED between January 1st and March 31st to be eligible for nomination.

If someone else nominates the one you were going to nominate, you can nominate something else or simply choose to second the original nomination. You do not have to nominate in all categories, but the more entries we have for the voting, the better. Nominations are not final until the above deadlin; if you wish to change your nominations before then, you may do so by editing your original post.

Each nomination meeting the rules will receive 1 DP. Writing a couple of sentences on why you nominated the thread will give you an additional 1 DP. If you do so for all categories, you will receive an additional DP (to be determined by staff; Max 7 DP). A seconded nomination will not receive DP unless reasons are stated, then they will get the normal 2. Nomination rewards will be posted in bonuses after the nominations thread has been closed (April 8th-ish).
