“Know ye the tales of the long forgotten realm of Altoria, a land of wonders and perils the like of which exist not in our world today. In the Altorian year of the lion, a great evil power would make it’s first move at world domination, striking in secret from the shadows. Against this dark force, only the four warriors of destiny could stand. This is their story.”
So yeah, this game will have four players. You come up with a character, including their personality, background and items possessed (no magic items at level 1!) The character will have the following abilities: STRENGTH, AGILITY, CONSTITUTION, INTELLECT, MAGIC. Roll an ordinary six-sided dice 3 times and add up the numbers to get each score. (Meaning scores will be from 3-18). High strength means your character can wield big weapons and move heavy objects. High constitution means they can take hits better. High agility means they can dodge and balance more easily. High intellect is useful for solving problems. High magic means they can cast better spells.
Classes aren’t strictly defined here, but your scores will give you a good idea of what your character can do.
More on the setting: Altoria consists mainly of grassland with a few forests and rivers. It has several major city-states and many villages and farms. There are also a few mountains in the northern parts. You can choose from the following races:
*Human (urban)- a human from the city. No stat bonuses or penalties.
*Human (rural)- a human from a farm or small village. No bonuses or penalties.
*Human (barbarian)- a fierce hunter of the wild. +1 strength, +1 agility, -2 magic
*Dwarf -a short stocky bearded dude from Nidavellir mountain. +1 constitution, -1 agility
*Elf -a slim, fair, pointy-eared dude from the forest kingdom Elfland. +1 magic, -1 strength
I shall be the GM, of course. Who’s in?
