Re: Sven Conversion

So I'm probably going to play Sven for Scrappy's send off adventure. Therefore I'm re-reading his conversion stuff, now with the benefit of several more years of 5e play under our belts. I think I'm going to revisit mutliclassing to reflect his rejection from the Wizard's Guild. We'll see what works...

Re: Hearts of Darkness: Butterfly Effect

Quarion - In Quarion's backstory, he and his brother, Jareth, fought and killed a 1/2 orc necromancer and some minions who slew Quarion's father. I was considering a sidequest that saw the 1/2 orc raised in undeath as a wraith/spectre/vampire who was set on revenge against Quarion. I planned on havi...

Re: Hearts of Darkness: Butterfly Effect

Balisar - this was Zack's blue dragonborn sorcerer I was going to do a family plot point for Balisar where his blue dragon ancestor was killed by The Master. The Master would have recruited Balisar, and then Balisar would have discovered that the Master had killed his ancestor, leading to a dramatic...

Re: Hearts of Darkness: Butterfly Effect

Bannock - I had considered a sort of reverse development for Bannock. Everyone went through a "we're good guys but in our former lives we were good guys who turned bad" character revelation. I was considering a revelation for Bannock that in your former lives, he was secretly a bad guy who...

Re: Hearts of Darkness: Butterfly Effect

Character stuff: I liked how the character stuff played out, for the most part. But there were a few things that could have gone a little differently. Onarra - Right from the beginning when Tom gave his character background, I knew there was going to be a subplot where Onarra would be replaced with ...

Re: Hearts of Darkness: Butterfly Effect

There were also a few points in the adventure when the PCs could have found out a whole bunch of information early, specifically, when Brigga and Quarion went on their first extra-planar jaunt to Brigga's displaced stronghold, they encountered a bunch of Intellect Devourers. If one of the monsters h...

Hearts of Darkness: Butterfly Effect

I was considering some different possibilities as HoD was developed over 6 years, and I'm going to put some of them here if you're interested. The first alternate development, which I'm going to include in the published version, is that the identity of The Master could have changed to different char...

Re: Hearts of Darkness: Feedback

Cool, thank you, Tom. :) I've been considering how to present the story in the best manner as a published adventure. What I've got so far is that after some of the early plot revelations, like getting to Farweald, or discovering Lucky Break, there will be a "Clue Sheet" or "Mystery Sh...

Hearts of Darkness: Feedback

Heart of Darkness Feedback Ok, as some of you know, I’ve been reworking HoD with an eye toward publishing HoD adventures through the DMs Guild. To that end, I’d like to solicit some feedback from you about some of the adventures. Overall, are there any parts of the campaign that stand out as your fa...

Re: Heart of Darkness: The Future

You may state any long term goals that you would like your PCs to accomplish here, for example, Quarion building a shrine to Rillifane near Farweald, or destroying the Figurine of Fiendish Power (which takes daily action for a year and a day). The timeline will advance about 1 year, maybe a little m...

Re: Heart of Darkness: Challenges

The PCs still possess a Figurine of Fiendish Power, in the form of a barlurga demon. Bern Haupt's mansion, The Grandwood, stands empty and silent on a hill overlooking town, with its profane, demonic temple and charnel pit concealed below. Leigha, Akriah, and Beltaine are all heirs to the Grandwood....

Re: Heart of Darkness: Spoils

You have also recovered Khrytos' Sword of Draconic Sorcery and Balrakas' cursed sword, The Corrupting Servitor. You still possess the Helm of Infinity, a Helm of Telepathy which can be used to kill a person by draining their soul into the Book of Infinite Souls. Presumably this would now simply resu...

Heart of Darkness: Spoils

Life in Farweald will carry on. You have decided to become a fellowship which will guard the Book of Infinite Spells. You are all now attuned to the Book, as is Chebka, The Oracle, who now resides in the Warlock's Tower (unless you object and negotiate a different circumstance). An attuned wielder g...

Re: Heart of Darkness: Homecoming

Finally free of Gods and Dragons, you all concentrate one more time and open a portal on top of the Warlock's Tower. Through it you see the rebuilt walls of Farweald, covered with a nice layer of snow. The Oracle eyes the portal and says, "Little Farweald. HAHAHaaa, heh! Seems a little worse fo...

Heart of Darkness: Homecoming

You step out of the Portal back onto the top of the Warlock's Tower, open to the lazily undulating ribbons of light above, somewhat masking the twinkling stars beyond. Leigha is there waiting for you, excited and happy to be back. She is standing next to the Book of Infinite Souls, which you just no...
