    If you’ have never before played a DUNGEONS & DRAGONS game, don’t worry Treasure Hunt will be easier for you than other adventures, not harder. You won’t have to worry about complicated decisions concerning choice of weapons, spells, deity to worship, and so on. You’re just a normal man or woman, suddenly caught up into a bizarre, unpredictable, and dangerous situation. Just react to the situations you come across as a real person would. In this adventure you will be starting out in life as an average villager, merchant, sailor, etc.

    Your actions during the course of the adventure and your style of play will have a major bearing on your final class of character. I will not dictate this to you but I will remind you of your actions, lets have some fun.


    I am new to running a computer role playing game, and I will be trying to post daily. ((I should be able to, I work sitting in front of a computer)) If this is going to work I will need dedicated players, so if you are unable to commit to posting every one or two days please do not apply. I know the real world comes first and if you are going to be away let me know. If you drop out or quit your character will be carried with the group until the next time the group gets to town, and left there. Kind of harsh I know but it has to be that way or the game will die.


    The Rules:
    1: This is for fun be nice to each other and me.
    2: I post, resolve combat, NPC reactions, Exp gained etc.
    3: Then you all post, if you edit your post let me know.
    4: There will be a private conversation started with each player, sometimes there will be situations that will need it. ((Mu ha ha)) There will also be a conversation for all of us to ask questions about the game.
    5: I will be running 1 or 2 NPC to flush out the party, others may join if it is part of the story

    6: Death can happen in this game play smart.
    7: This is for fun be nice to each other, and me.

    The Korinn Archipelago
    [​IMG]

    Your character is from the Korinn Archipelago, a peaceful trading and fishing area, a string of islands extending far out into the western sea. The Archipelago contains hundreds of islands, some enormous, some too small to see on the map. And you do have a map, which I will give you not that you need it, you know the waters by heart. The area, which was sparsely inhabited in times past, was settled about a hundred years ago by colonists from far to the south. They were led by a great seaman named Viledel. Viledel, never the subtlest of men, made as his base one of the westernmost of the Islands, in the area most thickly prowled by pirates and corsairs, and began his campaign of smashing piracy wherever he found it. His followers set up settlements and quickly spread further and further west, into the larger islands closer to civilized nations. Viledel, who was known as the Sea King throughout his life, died 60 years ago when a pirate raid crushed his island defenses and overran his home. Since then, the archipelago has had no central government, but has broken into a hundred petty island nations. Most islands and cities get along quite well, knowing the advantages to be gained through peaceful trade. Piracy has increased in the last 60 years. concentrated in the westernmost of the chain’s islands, but pirates no longer rule the seas. They prey upon the merchants like parasites instead of sharks. However, the further west you sail, the greater the risk is of running into pirate ships, and some particularly bold buccaneers sail deep into civilized eastern areas for the rich pickings there. Your character is from the Archipelago, from whichever island you choose, a worker in whichever profession you decided upon.

    Throughout the archipelago, the islands share some common features. By and large, they are hilly and mountainous, with few good fields. Consequently, there are not many farmers; there are many fishermen, and herdsmen of goats, sheep, and pigs. Many wild herbs and spices grow here. These, plus wool, linen, leathers, fish, pork, and mutton, make up the primary goods exported and traded throughout the island. The people are mostly simple fishermen and herdsmen, hardened by weather and adversity. There are many traders, especially on the larger islands and in the greater port cities,which also feature many craftsmen and providers of luxury goods and services


    The largest and most important islands of the archipelago include.

    Barret's Quay: This is a smallish eastern island, noted for the taciturn nature of its inhabitants (almost all humans — a few dwarves, no other races). It has no large port cities.

    Caftenor: This is the most southern island of any size, and one of the richest in terms of fish catches and temperate weather. Quite a few halflings live here among the humans, and Caftenor is the most frequent stopping off port for ships bound between the southern
    nations and the western islands.

    Chawdik: This is a fairly poor eastern island, notable mainly for the very large gnome population living on the south coast; it’s the largest gnome community on the islands.

    Dennik: Unfortunate Dennik is the western frontier — any further west, and you’re in pirate controlled territory. This island actually has few fishermen. The seaside villages are too vulnerable to buccaneer raids. Most of the population tends herds or grows spices in the upland fields, trading with the eastern ships when they put in. The population is almost wholly human, though there are some halforcs living here.

    Highport: This island is the greenest of all the archipelago, mountainous and heavily forested. It is a rich trading island with several strong port cities and large elvish and half elvish populations.

    Jacaman: This island, smaller, uglier, weaker, and more unfortunate than Dennik, is still the archipelago’s chief producer of several exotic spices. There is a lot of risky trade out to the island, and a lot of pirate interest in the isle and the sea-routes leading to it.

    Pandira: This western island was a notorious pirate haven in the days of the Sea King, but has been abandoned and unoccupied since a few years after the Sea King's fall. ( this the Island where Treasure Hunt took place )

    Rabin's Reef: This is another forested island, noted as the summering spot for wealthy families, especially those from Ventris.

    Ventris: This is the largest of the islands of the archipelago, and the richest. It is characterized by high mountains, thick forests, and several plains worthy of growing crops. The island is thick with demi-humans as well as humans and commands a good share of the sea-trade that occurs in the archipelago.



    What I need from you.

    Name:

    Race: Human, Elf, Dwarf, Halfling, Gnomes (each has advantages and disadvantages)
    Gender:
    Age: Will differ with race

    You all start with Sailing (recreational) and swimming.


    Bio: Who are you? What do you look like?

    The Races:

    Humans: No advantages, no disadvantages, enough said. Starting age 17-24
    No level or class restrictions

    Dwarves tend to be dour and taciturn. They are given to hard work and care little for most humor. They are strong and brave, but they also enjoy beer, ale, mead, and even stronger drink. Their chief love, however, is precious metal, particularly gold. They also enjoy gems, of course, particularly those of opaque nature (except pearls which they do not like) and diamonds. They like the earth and dislike the sea. Considering that their women tend to be bearded too, it is not surprising that some dwarves are somewhat forward in their behavior towards females not so adorned. If dwarves are a trifle suspicious and avaricious, they generally make up for such faults by their courage and tenacity.
    Starting age 35 - 50 young adult
    Level Restrictions cannot be a Mage, Paladin or Ranger

    Elves are often considered flighty or frivolous, and this is the case when they do not believe a matter to be of import. They concern themselves with the natural beauty around them, dancing and frolicking, playing and singing unless necessity dictates otherwise. Because elves love nature, they are not fond of ships or mines, but of growing things and the lands under the sky. They do not make friends easily, but friend or enemy is never forgotten. Their humor is clever, as are their songs and poetry. Elves are brave but never foolhardy. They feast, but eat sparingly, drink mead and wine, but seldom become drunk from excesses. While they find wellwrought jewelry a pleasure to behold, they are not overly interested in money or gain. Magic fascinates elves, however, and if they have a weakness it lies in this desire. If elves tend towards haughtiness and arrogance at times, they are not inclined to regard their friends and associates as anything other than equals. Starting age 100 -175 Young adult
    Level restrictions cannot be Druid, Paladin, Ranger, or Illusionist

    Gnomes are most lively and full of humor - often on the black side or practical iokes. They enjoy eating and can drink as much as dwarves do. They are sly and furtive with those they do not know or trust, and even somewhat reserved with most bigger folk such as elves or humans. Gnomes love all sorts of precious stones, and they are masters of gem polishing and cutting. In most other respects they are not unlike dwarves, but they enjoy the open world of growing things almost as much as their mines and burrows. Starting age 50 -90 Young adult Level restrictions cannot be Paladin, Ranger or Mage

    Halflings are quite similar to gnomes, although they eat more and drink less. They also are prone to favor natural beauty and the outdoors more than they do their burrows. They are not forward, but they are observant and conversational if in friendly company. because they are more open and outgoing than either dwarves or elves, they get along with most other races far better than the former two do. Halflings see wealth as a means of gaining comforts only, for they love creature comforts. If they are not overly brave or ambitious, they are generally honest and hard-working when there is need. Halflings love stories and good jokes and are perhaps a trifle boring at times. Starting age 22 - 33 Young adult. Level restrictions cannot be Cleric, Paladin, Ranger, Mage or Illusionist

    Bio: Grew up in a Merchant family and it looked like he was on the fast track to being a trader since he was good with numbers and at reading people, but a chance encounter with a pickpocket nudged him in a slightly different direction. He's still a trader at heart but doesn't mind helping himself to a little extra if it wouldn't cause too much trouble, though he's better at being stealthy and setting or disarming traps than picking pockets. He has some talent for magic but prefers illusion and misdirection over the more offensive spells. While not nobles themselves his family is fairly well known around the islands and often rub elbows with the upper class.
