- Descent the RPG - Oath of the Outcast
This adventure is a fantasy themed RPG campaign using the rules from Descent the RPG book (which you can see on Scribd). Since FFG has started releasing Hero and Monster Collections for Descent 2nd Edition, which contain a lot of models but only two little adventures for the game, I thought this product would work great for expanding into a roleplaying adventure.
The two adventures it does come with sets up a nice story about an evil force attempting to raise 12 undead warriors using powerful magic. In the board game the heroes can stop this, but that's no fun! So instead our heroes arrive too late, cutting down the monsters who guard the temple where the remains are guarded only to see the 12 warriors come to life and escape on the backs of razorwings.
Who is responsible for this blasphemous crime, and what terrors might these 12 powerful beings bring once they have been restored to full power? Only brave and intrepid heroes can find out!
Let's start by filling out our Plot Sheet:
Oh and before we forget, let's meet our heroes:
I used the descriptions provided by FFG to give each character some traits, but then I rolled up some additional ones to give them all a little more complexity.
Trenloe the Strong
Attitude : Stubborn (Combative)
Social : Laconic (Down-to-Earth)
Character : Loyal (Farsighted)
Laurel of Bloodwood
Attitude : Cunning (Mischievous)
Social : (Intimidating)
Character : (Vindictive)
"Gifted from birth by an unknown power, Mok has always been set apart. His impressive size and intellect gave him a distinct advantage on the battlefield and in the council tent, and he became an influential leader in his tribe early. He lost much of his favor, however, when he began to spread a message of peace and reconciliation. His message was despised and rejected, and Mok was cast out, but he still brings his words to any who will listen."
Attitude : Considered (Laid-Back)
Social : Paternal (Guarded)
Character : Wise (Trusting)
"It is widely believed that Shiver’s origins are connected to the Shadow Tear and the fall of the Daewyl elves. However, even he cannot confirm this. His earliest memories are punishment and penance, with nothing prior. A desperate and sorrowful soul, Shiver exemplifies humble service among friends and reckless abandon in a fight, giving his all to earn the forgiveness and peace he desires more than anything else."
Attitude : Indefatigable (Inquisitive)
Social : (Phlegmatic)
Character : Humble (Righteous)
Next post we'll move on to the first act and get to adventuring!
