View Full Version : Background and Introduction

06-19-2008, 04:27 AM
Generations ago, a warlord, his name now lost to the annals of history, founded a basecamp in an ancient abandoned city known as Ryan's Ruins. The basecamp quickly grew to a fortified hold, and garrisons were sent to build up the defenses in the catacombs that sprawled beneath the ruins.

Nobody is sure what those soldiers found beneath the ruins, but the warlord claimed many valuables from the rubble below, and over the next few years built a great city, which grew at an inexplicable rate.

Known by many names over the years, mostly archaic references to the names of lost cities of the area, the warlord referred to it simply as the City State of the Invincible Overlord, a title that he took for his own, allowing few to evr know his true name.

Since then, several Invincible Overlords have worn the mantle of rulership, some as heirs, others as conquerers.

Visitors to the City State are often appaled at the appearance of the city's streets. Beggars haunt every corner and alley, surrounded by their own filth - and that of others. Orcs, Koblds, Ogres and even some few Trolls wander the streets among the Human, Elf, Dwarf and other citizens. Guards turn a blind eye on shopkeepers who beat, maim, and even kill thieves - and suspected thieves. Slavery is commonplace.

Behind all this squalor in the streets is a complex and refined legal system that makes the scum in the commons look like the most pious individuals. One questions why anyone with any other options would even consider coming to this vile place.

And yet, many do just that. Year round, people flock to the City State. Merchants seeking to sell wares that may not be legal to trade in other places. Criminals fleeing persecution. Nobles and holy men hoping to undo the corruption in the government or or the streets.

And adventurers.

The City State has placed a bounty on the heads of the Purple Claw Orcs from the nearby Dearthwood, the foul and unnatural beasts that prowl the Troll Fens and Mermist Marshes, the pirates who patrol the Roglaroon, and many others. But this draws in only the most dim-witted or unambitious adventurers. The true riches come from Wraith Overlord.

The ancient catacombs under the original City State are still there, stretching far deeper than any have ever explored. Any that have returned, that is. These sprawling tunnels were dubbed Wraith Overlord ages ago, and the name stuck. Rumors abound of the riches still waiting to be claimed, and others point out that fewer than half that venture into Wraith Overlord ever return - and they often leave both the valuables they collected, and the ones they took in on their corpses.

Finding entrance to the tunnels is easier said than done. Somewhere in the city is a tavern which is built over an entrance to the catacombs. For a fee, drunks descend into the darkness to fight the giant rats and lesser beasts that the proprieter lures in, but anything of value has been long stripped from this section of the tunnels, inviting less scrupulous customers to waylay others rather than treasure-seeking in more conventional ways. There may be other, unknown passages down there though - more than once, powerful beasts have been seen, sometimes even venturing up the well to attack the tavern's patrons.

Other entrances to Wraith Overlord exist, too, but finding their whereabouts is a challenge of its own, and getting in once they're found is not guaranteed to be easy.

Invincible Overlord is an adventure set in the City State of the Invincible Overlord. PCs are adventurers coming to the City State for whatever purpose they choose. Players may persue any goals they choose - the adventure will be built around what they choose to do, provided the action stays within the City State and Wraith Overlord. Whenever I manage to pick up a copy, the surrounding Hinterlands setting will be available too.

Play will be casually paced. I will check in and update 1-3 times per day, with more attention paid on my days off (currently Thursday - Saturday). Most gameplay will be done on the forums, including small-scale combat. Large-scale combat will be postponed until a day when all involved are available, and will be run through Gametable.

WARNING! The adventure WILL NOT scale to the PCs level. You will get hints that certain areas or goals are outside your abilities - if you choose to ignore these, your fate is in your own hands.

Attention: I am not currently recruiting for this campaign; I still have a bit of setup to do. Once I'm done, invitations will be sent out to a few friends. After I get responses from them, I will begin taking names. I am shooting for a group of 4 to 6, although I may go with a slightly larger group.

If you are interested in joining, and I haven't opened things up yet, send me a PM, and I'll let you know where things stand.

Someone's bound to roll a cleric, a character who worships a god, is interested in the pantheon, or just wants to go to a temple to get healed when they're out of potions. So here's a VERY brief list of the deities in the Wilderlands/Invincible Overlord setting:

First, there are three classifications of deity: Major, Minor, and Demigods & Godlings. Demigods and Godlings are not widely worshiped, so that section will be extra summarized. If you're interested in any, ask for elaboration in the discussion thread. I'm also going to skip gods who are unlikely to be seen, like Armadad Bog, who is a major god, but his following is almost entirely within the City-State of Viridistan.
Finally, please note that the Wilderlands setting is host to a plethora of deities, far more than other settings. Sages familiar with the multiverse continue to debate why this realm has an unusually high population of gods, but the end result is this: any god, from any source is worshipped in the Wilderlands. Some may have so few worshipers that you can count them on one hand, but they still are present. Any deity from an alternate source is considered a Godling.

The Toad, God of the Mermist Swamp, is lawful evil. Long ago the Mermist Swamp was a haven for refugees from war. Their need for the protection and the power of their belief gave rise to the The Toad, protector of the swamp. While his religion never expanded beyond the Mermist Swamp, a temple to him was built in City State to placate him and to keep him from interfering with the City. His worship is centered in the communities in and around the Mermist Swamp near City State.
