    Default Londinium Infernum (PbP)

    Welcome everyone to the majestic city of London!

    In the modern era and year of our Queen 1852, we are the center of the world, the axis upon which it turns, and all other nations follow behind. Pax Britannica has lasted for almost two generations, resulting in the most peaceful population we have seen yet. But all is not well, as idle hands make the devils work-or so they say. There have been rumors of corruption amongst the nobles and authorities of our fair island nation, mysterious disappearances, and noises in the night.

    If only that were all that troubled us. In the last few weeks clouds have been gathering above London, animals have become frenzied, and the inmates of the institutions have become reckless. For there is deep, dark magic at work here, with sinister machinations afoot. Just this afternoon these events came to a head with a calamitous roar as the sky opened and a demon lord himself stepped through! I say, what a predicament we find ourselves in! And to make matters worse, it appears that something from outside our normal time and space has stepped in as well, and is currently fighting the demon lord in the skies above!

    LOOK OUT! FLEE WITH YOUR LIVES! HE COMES!

    ---remembered speech by a city guide during The Day the Sky Broke, related to this humble guide by a half crazed elvish gentlemen.


    Hi everyone! This one-shot will be a horror survival themed adventure, with the main objective being to escape from the city of London, in an alternate universe where they have all the cool things like magic and dwarves. In terms of race and where they could be from, assume that the world is a melting pot with multiple subspecies everywhere. For example there is Asian Dwarves and South American Orcs alongside African Elves and Australian Halflings. Any questions will be answered as soon as I see them, and certain details may be up for discussion, such as how much horror we need, and similar things.

    System: Pathfinder
    Platform: Discord server which I will make after characters are decided. Pbp, not voice as choosing one time would be too difficult for everyone to commit to.
    Players: ideally 4, may be adjusted based on quality of applications. Absolute max will be two groups of 4 each if needed.
    Sources allowed: d20pfsrd, no third party. However, if you find something that fits your character concept, talk to me about it!
    Character Creation: Starting level 3, 30 point buy, no limit on races. This is a metropolitan area after all. Max standard gold on start for level 3 (3000 gp). All pathfinder deities as well as Earth deities allowed. Guns are more common here, so use Commonplace Guns for rules about firearms, available on d20pfsrd. For traits, use 2 traits no drawback, and finally full health for level 1, roll for levels 2 and 3.
    Recruitment Close date: Feb 21st, if we need to go that long.
    Posting Requirements: once a day at least. I understand if life gets in the way but make sure to tell your fellow players if it does, they deserve that much.

    Home Rules: No full casters classes(you will find out the reason why), and using the Automatic Bonus Progression. This will let magic items be more flavorful and have a bigger impact on the game.

    ALSO! If you have a great idea, let it be heard! Are you the last of a dying noble family with a cursed blade? Cool! Were you bitten by a werebear but managed to stop the infection at the elbow, so now you have a bear arm? Fantastic! I want to see all the things that you've dreamed of having but Dm's never let you!



    Warning: this is my first time Dm-ing, and as such there may be mistakes such as too weak monsters, too strong monsters, not enough loot, and other variables. If you see anything like this or have ways to improve my DM-ing, please let me know! Any input is appreciated.

    Only pbp and once per day. Nice catches!
    And no limits beyond what a point buy calculator will put on you- like no stat below 7 naturally, and so on. But if you desperately want a character that can lift a horse while being illiterate, hated on sight, and has a will save lower than a squirrel, then we'll see!

    Lucius Thorn, human mesmerist, I'll add the background soon, but it's the same as you would expect.

    Lucius was born on the sixth day of June, 1846, at six o'clock in the morning, from a woman that was buried under the alias Maria Scianna. The orphaned Lucius was then adopted by the future American ambassador to Great Britain Robert Thorn, who was told his child was stillborn, with his wife Katherine unaware of the replacement. It was five years later, after Thorn becomes US ambassador, that Lucius' powers began to manifest when his nanny mysteriously hanged herself at his birthday party, claiming to had done it for him. The strange events continued with new nanny Ms. Baylock, who was later revealed to be one of the Satanists who had been waiting for the boy and acting on his behalf from the shadows, as Lucius' true nature started to manifest, from his violent reaction to church to most animals reacting fearfully at the sight of him (save for the black dog that Ms. Baylock adopted).


    Father Brennan, a priest from Italy who had been present at Lucius' birth, warned Robert about his son being the Antichrist, stating that Lucius would eventually kill him and his wife. Robert refused to accept it until Katherine, revealed to be pregnant with another child, was hospitalized after being knocked off a balcony by Lucius with his tricycle, a fall that killed the unborn baby. Accompanied by a journalist who is eventually decapitated in a freak accident, Robert learned both the truth of Lucius' heritage and the fact that his own child was actually murdered to ensure Lucius' being placed in his care, so that he may rise up through the world of politics. An exorcist gave Robert seven ancient daggers he inherited that can kill the Antichrist. Robert was initially against killing the boy until he found the 666 birthmark that confirms his identity as the Antichrist. But when Robert brought Lucius to a church to commit the deed, he had been killed by police before Lucius was harmed.

    "Lucius, I love you. It's all for you."

    Krivak, your questions are answered above!

    Also I mistakenly labeled this as a campaign when it is more of a one-shot. If there is enough interest then it can develop into a campaign.
