Requirements for Characters
The Siege of Solemngate
Player Character Information Page
What the player needs to know:
The Solemngate was lost to the world of men in the last crusade. There was no epic battle, no heroes and no heroines sacrificing their lives to save hundreds or thousands of innocents. In mere moments, every living soul inside that castle was gone forever. Horrors unimaginable befell those five hundred men and women that day and the Orders of Iomedae have been consumed with guilt, shame and revenge ever since.
Now many years later, a fourth crusade attempts push back the never ending tide of demonic forces coming from the Wound on the World. A voice from the past calls out for aid. A small group of righteous men and women, with dreams of righting what once went wrong, sets out to answer that call.
What the player needs to provide:
This is a high-fantasy campaign so I will be using a 25-point build. The game will begin with characters of 7th level. I am anticipating level advancement every session or at least every other session. Plan accordingly.
The campaign specifically takes place in and around the nation of Mendev and in the Worldwound itself. At the core of the adventure lies a Keep that guards one of the precious Wardstones that hold the demons within the wastelands that surround the Worldwound. The keep is maintained by a Holy Order of Iomedae, so most characters should be among the faithful of that Goddess. I see many fighters, clerics and paladins among the simpler choices. Choice of class and race must be submitted to the GM before the campaign begins. I feel that compelling arguments can be made for nearly every class. So you tell me why you are involved in the crusade and explain what role you are going to play within the group. I am not interested in four pages of background story, just simply and directly answer one question: Why is your character fighting the crusade? I would prefer character sheets from Hero Lab, but a handwritten or photo static copy is sufficient.
