It is a brave elf that thinks a dragon can be tamed.

When we were told to level up I was like "what the heck do paladins get at 5". Was pleasantly surprised. *success kid*

I looked on Wikidot at Eldritch Knight 5e and they get nothing new at lv 5 by the looks of things. What about stats?

Questions and plans?

I have a couple of questiosn about dwarvish history (Yes, there is a little info but not a lot.)  that I will respond to shortly.  But are there any other questions and do you know where you want to go?  I left it open at this point for you - I can always lead you around by the nose and tell you what the next adventure is by saying "go here" - but this is a point at which you can choose your own adventure and I will build it in that direction.  Like I said, answers to the few questions already posted will come soon.  

 

Dragon-Soul - I'll get you mor einfo on that shortly also.

Still Here!

Coming up for air after preparing for the start of the semester... Yay for level 5!!

Regarding what to do next, I might suggest that we situate ourselves within reasonable proximity to a town. Thinking on this and will add to the game post soon, but for now that's where I'm leaning.

Mapping it Out

Blacktooth Region

A map of the region - hand drawn courtesy of my artistic abilities.  Apologies that it is a bit hard to read.  Although strangers to this land you have a general idea of what is out there.  This is just the big picture.  For a sense of distance - it is a bit over a days ride from Botkinburg to Ludenshiem. Some notes on locations on the map:  (North is to the top of the map.)

Botkinburg - Located in the bottom right of the map near a bend in the Hreusen River.  A small town and the parties current location. 

Ludensheim - A bit over a days ride to the west/north  along the river.  A fair amount bigger than Botkinburg and the biggest thing within any reasonable distance.

The Hreusen River flows through the region starting at Wickham lake in the West and travelling along the Ridgepassing into the Southlands.

South of this map are more thoroughly settled lands.  There is a lot of wilderness between these settlements.

Gronit Mirk - Dead center on the map is a forest of ill repute.

Town names starting at Botkinburg and going Northwest along the river are:  Ludensheim, Posit, Silverpike, Shiefell and Wickham.

Aufstrugg - The original and main fortress of the Horned One many, many years ago.  You don't know the exact location but it is roughly at the end of the hills in the middle of the swamp.  

Plains of Achrothos - A large region of plains and rolling hill.  There are few permanent settlements and it is primarly the home of nomadic peoples of various races.

Totten Hills - Low Mountains and as Gerdar could tell you, once home to a strong clan of dwarves before the coming of the Horned One.

Other notes:

Your previous adventure was generally south of Botkinburg.  The Vargolg is around the bend in the river on the bottom right of the map.  There is a bridge over the river (which some of you used at the start of the adventure) just barely south of the bend in the bottom right.  At that point there is a road up the Ridge.  You do not know if there are any other easy ways over the Ridge between there and the Witten Passage 4-5 days to the North.  If you remember the image I gave you earlier of the Ridge it is quite a vertical cliff line.  

Uthal - Your people were originally from lands North of here.  

If you have any other questions feel free to ask me or the people of Botkinburg.

*For reference I will also be placing a copy of this map with some of the general campaign info on PAGE ONE of the Q&A thread for easy reference.

Choices

Choices do need to be made - you don't have clear information but you do need to pick a general destination.  Does the group have an opinion?  You can talk here and in messages but I can't go anywhere without some direction.  At this point things are wide open based on your desires.

Just say no to dragons...

I'd like to suggest that we avoid dragons until we've got a few more levels underneath us. One dragon could easily take us out...

If we've done all we can at Botkinburg, maybe a good next step would be to go to the Ludensheim to see if we can find any leads. What do the rest of you think?

@Nimu

Not looking to pick a fight with a dragon. I'm looking for a small dragon to befriend and become my companion/familiar.

But we're going to whichever place gets the most votes anyway.

Time to head off.

@Nimu, @dragon, Let's go somewhere. We only seem to have three voices here (@WhereIsTom? We summon you).
So, let's roll a dice, toss a coin, draw a straw and make a choice. Adventure awaits. Carpe diem!
