History: Ember was a child that never fit in at school. She was too smart and athletic to hang around the in-crowd. She also was too athletic and pretty to be accepted by the nerds. She was considered a loner by everybody, spending much of her time studying in the library and turning out for individual only sports like long distance running/track & field. Many find her strange since she has a deep fascination with the myths about magic, witches and warlocks. She has seen every Harry Potter Movie at least 20 times and read 100s of fantasy and mythology books on the subject. With all the extensive research (+11 arcane, history and religion) she has done, many clues point to the conclusion that magic did exist at one time. All of her experiments to replicate any form of magic spell have failed. She wonders to herself if waving two sticks (her wand & staff) around is just plain crazy.


Item Wish List
+2 Ruin Guardian Staff (L8)
+1 Shimmering Cloth Armor (L4)
Shull Mask (L5)
+2 Amulet of Protection L6)
Bracers of Perfect shot (L3)
+2 Cinder wand (L6)

Scorching Burst at will makes a wizard a good class against Buffy-verse Vampires. As a wizard class though, since magic is only practiced by the Undead, you may be studied in 'occult lore' and may have 'practiced' magic, but have never yet seen nor cast an actual spell. (Everyone will use their first class power ever on the first adventure.)

I'll make sure there are spellbooks to find (which means the party will fight spellcasting Vampires... Twisted Evil ), and remember too, since almost no one living has ever seen magic, your class will rock people's world a lot more than many other less conspicuously magic classes.

I would assume the rebellious Devas remember and practice magic since they have the memories of a thousand lifetimes. You would think they could teach us enough to get to 1st level.

Defender type worry about spellcaster more the spellcaster.

I'm sure everybody will get noticed once battle starts.

Oh yes, everyone will be first level when we start, and everyone will use their class powers for the first time during the first adventure. Magic exists, but the living forgot about it. Yes, Giles remembers all about magic, but isn't part of a spellcasting class. You think he's more of a monk and very focused on stealth.

Because of the non-magic myth, racial effects like the Gensei electical effects are explained away with mundane means similar to electic eels. Racial abilities of a more 'magic' nature, such as Gnome invisibility or Eladrin teleportation, are latent abilities of these races lying dormant from generations of non-use. "Myths" of ancient heroes of these races possesed these magic abilities, but they are believed by the masses to be exagerated from reality.

The PCs, of course, during and after our first adventure, will be able to freely use all magic racial, class abilities, but per the origin of the PCs, all PCs up until our first encounter have only so far used mundane basic attacks, and none of your class abilities, nor your racial ability if it's obviously magic... yet!

Nice! I'm really liking a lot of the themes for the PCs in this campaign. Very Happy

You maybe were a 'Goth kid' in school, but like everyone else's racial abilities, no part of your Vampiric Heritage has manifested yet until our first encounter...

Because like all the other PCs you were barely wisked away from overwhelming odds in the dead of night from your childhood home, you didn't have opportunity to escape with your life and that much stuff. You have leather armor, repeating crossbow, and theives tool, or some other combination of 1 worn item, and 2 hand held items. You also have a pouch with (1d4*50gp). Right before the first encounter, Giles, your Watcher, also gives you a wooden stake and 100gp.

...This is just at the start of first level. When we flash forward to 6th level, we'll start out fully equipped with mundane items. We'll also have at least some magic items to start, how many depending on what happens... Twisted Evil

I'll be wearing the leather armor (Leather Jacket) and have the Repeating Crossbow and the Falchion. I like garage sales and I found these bargains awhile ago. I was just packing them up to re-sell on Craigslist when the attack occurred.

Just like Ember was into the 'occult' & Wicca groups to explain why she'd have an ember wand in her room, yes, you need a hobby like this to explain why you'd have these items in yours. Beyond just re-selling them online, you probably have some other fascination with medeval times too. Oh, since it's a modern world but not this world, we need to think of an alternate D&D dimension name for 'Craigslist'.

But yes, this hobby and/or alternate source of income (or something similar) would be necessary to explain why a high school student would have these items in their room. Ken & I may be able to get together as early as this weekend to go over the maptools, so as soon as you can please post your PCs too & everyone also include a brief background. Remember, everyone is a teenager in a world that doesn't believe in magic or Vampires, you've never used any of your racial and/or class powers before (i.e. any magic), and your background has to explain why you have the 1 worn & 2 hand held items that you have. Oh, and everyone 'happens' to have either a birthmark or early (& permanent) childhood scar exactly in the shape of a different Zodiac sign somewhere on their person.

I think that's a pretty good explanation. To add on to it me and my friends used to learn martial arts(Kendo, Karate and Kung-Fu) and would practice with any kind of weapons we could get our hands on. We would even get Pellet Guns and shoot at olde We could even throw Shuriken's at a 1'x 1' target from 30' away.
So I chose those items because of my 12-year old fascination with weapons, and the reason I'm trying to sell them...Saving for a new car.

Instead of Craigslist make it MerlinsList.

I'm available Sat or Sun this week.

MapTools itself is pretty straight forward but I believe you're going to run into two issues:

1. Maps
The adventure I ran was a module and I was able to find the complete module maps online. Your adventure seems to be more free form and may require custom maps.

There are several sites where you can download pre-made maps but you may have to find and download a new map for each encounter.

2. Token editing
NPC tokens are pretty quick to make and usually only take a few minutes for each NPC type.

PC tokens take a bit more work and will need to be updated every level. I can help with initial token creation and updates.

No problem. Smile

I was just spitballing a possible explanation of how your 1/2 Vampire heritage might have manifested, before it actually manifested. It would obviously have some influence on personality as a young boy & now teenage years. It can be whatever you make up, of course.

Oh, and Ken just left and I have a map for the main floor of the casino the PCs are about to enter. Ken said he'd do some searching for a possible better one (& the other rooms we'll need) too, so I'm basically ready to start the Buffy-verse campaign online as soon as everyone can post their PC. We'll play just the first 2 levels online (the 2 where we flashforward levels), then when we start the level by level playing in Paragon, we'll do those all in person. That might time out perfectly with the crowning of the 2nd King in the Dragonborn campaign. Smile

We already made the main the easy & hard 'bread & butter' bad guys, and I just have a couple special characters to enter & we're ready to go from the NPC end. Ken also volunteered to do the hard part, creating the PC tokens, once everyone posts their PCs. PC tokens are an order of magnitude more difficult to create than NPC tokens.

Chris & Stu posted that their PCs are coming, Mick, Ken, & Ross have all posted. Can anyone contact Trevor, Kevin, Ibuki, & see if they want to play? If they do, but just not online, then 11th level on we'll be playing in person.

Let me know what your PCs want to do. As you enter the casino, you see a large, semi-crowded floor with lots of table games. (think Snoqualmie Casino) You all are easily the youngest in the room, save the serving girls in skimpy cocktail outfits, but this world has no 'underage' drinking/gambling laws, so people notice but don't really care.

Oh, and like casinos in this world, there are no windows for sunlight to enter at all anywhere in the building...

What time of day are we entering?
Are the main door made of blacked out glass?
Any exterior windows up high?

Looks like we have
Ken: Monk - Striker
Ross: Assassin - Striker
Mick: Wizard - Controller/Striker

The party will need a defender and a Leader. A Cleric Leader would be ideal since turning may come in handy in a vampire setting.

You arrive just after dusk the day before the Harvest Moon (when a big Vampire ritual is expected). Your watcher, Giles, gave each of you a wooden stake (just in case) and 100gp each to relax & unwind before your training as a Zodiac Slayer begins. You can enter later, or not at all until tomorrow night, if you wish.

The main entry way has 2 sets of doors. Yes both blackened glass. The other entryway are the elevators to the parking garage, so metal. The only other way into the building is a delivery entrance for service personel only.

The entire building does not have a single window anywhere on it.

I think Stu is planning on playing yet another leader, though I don't really see Kenedy watching others swing versus swinging a blade herself... I kind of see her as another striker.

The party will need a defender and a Leader. A Cleric Leader would be ideal since turning may come in handy in a vampire setting.

For a defender I would suggest a paladin. Undead won't easily ignore the mark of a paladin since he'll be doing radiant damage to them.

All of the PCs should have quite a few surges but we won't be able to access them during an encounter if we don't have a leader type.

View user profile

23 Re: Buffy Verse Campaign Misc Info on Sat Nov 13, 2010 9:06 pm

One consideration for a paladin is that heavy armor will stick out considerably in a modern setting as far as the roleplaying goes. (and corner stores and malls don't typically sell armor.) Modern armor and people will think you're impersonating a riot cop or something. (& is also hard to come by)

Just like the wizard class & spellbooks, if you want a heavy armor class, I'll make sure we have opportunities to aquire it, so don't let that influence your decision, but we will be roleplaying the reaction of NPCs and you will stand out pretty much the same as wearing it in a cafe today would. (same with the overt displays of magic... okay, magic would be more so!)

So as long as the armor looked like say a Storm Trooper or Iron Man then it would be fine. Smile You could just say your doing a Kids Birthday party or attending a Convention.

True! It might cost more to look like that and be functional, but otherwise it could be like Spiderman in the elevator... "Nice Spidey suit." "Thanks. It kind of itches..."

At a Gen-Con you wouldn't stand out at all. In fact, you might stand out more without it!
