Hello all,

Will try to keep this intro brief. Anyone interested in this campaign please post here with:

Character Name, Race, Class, Gender
Days of the week that you can play, and times you are available.

This campaign will be a pretty even spread of role-playing and combat.

On the outskirts of the Great Wild Wood, an ancient forest filled with prehistoric wonders and rare savage beasts, lies the hamlet of Green Valley. For months now, the powerful warriors of the Naerok’valoth Tribe of gray orcs have been sending raiding parties to attack the stone-fortified Greenwall Keep, the aged fortress that keeps the residents of Green Valley safe in times of crisis. The leader of Green Valley’s people, the Ataman known as Roa, knows that it is but a matter of time before the full might of the orcs hammers down upon his settlement, and is at once at a loss.

As luck would have it though, a band of travelers on their way to Port Ghaast in the east for audience with the high council of The Order of Light runs afoul of the orcs nearby Green Valley. The orcs bearing down upon them, they are faced with a decision... Fight against overwhelming odds, or retreat to the nearby keep to stay alive...

This Campaign takes place in Murghom of the Forgotten Realms.
Murghom is a loose confederacy of villages and cities ruled by warriors or shamans (druids/clerics) called Atamans. The great city of Port Ghaast is a city of stone ruled side by side under the Supreme Ataman and The Order of Light, a council of clerics and paladins that serve the gods Ilmater and Helm.
The Great Wild Wood takes up a large portion of this region, and is a unique forest inhabited by saurian reptiles and huge mammals. It is protected by the Grove of Leaf and Fang, a druidic alliance that balances Chauntea’s dogma of the preservation of life with Malar’s dogma of survival of the fittest. These druids fight a seemingly endless war against the encroachment both of civilized society and of the brutal gray orcs of the northern mountains.

Characters begin play at level 3, using Pathfinder rules.

Hi again.

Sounds like a really interesting setting for a Forgotten Relams game, and not an area i'm familiar with - great!

Please sign me up - game time pending (being in Australia (GMT +11) could cause headaches?!).

I'd be interested in playing a Human Paladin devoted to Helm, a Moon Elf Cleric or possibly a Wood Elf Fighter.

Before i forget, here's what i'd like to play:

Aiden Helmson Human Paladin male.

I'm GMT +11 and availible to play on Wednesday and Friday evenings/night and any time Sunday.

I'm available the Friday and weekend all day

I'll play a Rogue

Hi everyone. Just trying to drum up some more support here - I'm looking forward to playing in this game!

If you're reading this and are interested in playing PLEASE SIGN UP! We just need 2 more players...

I've made up Aiden Helmson, a human Paladin of Helm, we also have a Rogue on board. That leaves us needing a Cleric of some kind, and a Wizard or Sorcerer to give us a well balanced group.

So sign up guys and let's get this adventure started! :-)

I would like to play but am not familiar with the Pathfinder rules. I would like to play a dwarf fighter/barbarian but i could play a human cleric of Pelor as well

ya i would like to play if you still have a slot open im thinking either a mounted specialist or a stormlord of talos i think a fighter that specializes in longspear and could heal well would be a great support character pm either way please let me know

Both of those will work great. A party of four is pretty much all we'll need to get the game running. Please PM me your character sheets, I'd like to do this weekly, probably on Monday, Thursday, or Friday. Let me know what days and times work for each of you, and use Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) there is a website you can google that shows you the exact GMT so you can translate it to your own times.

Thank you for your interest, hope to hear from everyone soon!

Hi umm if you're still looking for a player I'd be interested in playing a sun elf wizard but I'm not familiar with pathfinder at all (I only have 3.5 books) so I'd probably need some help setting up a char.

Just putting out an update to any players interested, we'd like one more player for the campaign, preferably a Cleric.
