The Red Hand
Fade in on a luxuriously appointed room. The mainly-wooden construction and furniture as well as the odd prizes, yes stuffed creatures, but also jeweled items, documents and at least one still-living impaled troll head in a display case, scattered around the room suggest a hunting lodge. Near a large hearth, around a great table sits the Heart of the Hand, the leaders of most powerful mercenary company, our protagonists. Impressive characters who’s very name can send whole nations into panic. Now, they stare intently at something in the centre of the table… Something almost-forgotten… Each considering, nay, reliving the series of events which led them to this moment.
New (mini?) campaign.
I’ve had this idea for a while and I thought it could help me get out of my recent gaming slump. The concept is two-fold, firstly I had a really great experience with a role-themed party recently, so I thought I’d retry the experience with a wizardly group and secondly, I want larger-than-life (not to be confused with powerful) characters. Both parts should be served by character creation rules.
Have a look and let me know if you’re interested.
Also, a few metagame concerns:
- I’d like to play on Saturday evenings, I’m too old for Fridays
- Probably bi-weekly
- I chose Pathfinder for a variety of reasons, not least the fact that the rules are available free online.
- I’m looking for a few players that would like to do a bit of socializing during a D&D game, not a bit of D&D during a gab session…
