:point_right: Discord for questions and stuff

I plan on being there (not 100% certain yet), would prefer to play (T2 or if @ThatGuyTed runs a table whatever he needs as we have plans for a character only viable at his table :smiley: )

if need be I can run something T1 or T2

Hi! New guy here, would love to play with you. I plan to come with my T1 character. I also made a T2 backup character just in case.


I’m here and I assume that I will continue on red Hand of Doom

awesome :+1:

I will be there …

should @BufoBufo’s RHoD continue, I would like to join with my T3 kobold (level 16) :saluting_face:

edit: if that is not the case … I would love to join @xaosseed’s :spaghetti: BranCalonia game

If there is enough players, I’d run another fun game set in the world of the tiny and shiny Luminae. Tier 2 of course. :partying_face: :sparkles: An alternate universe where the bug olympics do take place.

Sorry dudes and dudettes! Last minute change of plans!

would love to join a T1 again.
Will bring a T2 as backup, just in case.

I will be there to test-run Brancalonia for VALUE (T1).

I will prepare something (likely high T2 or low T3 - “A bounty on your heads”) but if RHoD continues I would be very tempted to join again. :thinking:

PS: I’ll be the keeper of keys this week, so I’ll be there a bit earlier to open up (if necessary)


If @ThatGuyTed would run a game then i will be joining for sure :slight_smile:

I’ll be there to join @xaosseed.

Hi, a newbie to V.A.L.U.E. here. Will bring T1 and T2 as a backup, would love to join anything, since eveything is new


Ooh, join @xaosseed for a pasta-venture or continue with @frogemiah and the aftermath of the gator drop? Tough choice. I’ll wait and see how many people sign up and where there’s more room.

I will also be there! Would like to join @xaosseed depending on how the table looks like. Otherwise some chaotic shenanigans with @frogemiah sound great!

Red Hand of Doom Explanations


This is a small mini-campaign for V.A.L.U.E. that is open to new and recurring players. This small campaign will lead from T2 to T4 and is about a peaceful community facing a coming enemy. The setting is the Forgotten Realms.


Elsir vale is a rather thinly populated 250 mile long vale. This frontier region has few large towns, the largest one being Brindol, which is also the capital of the region. This subtropical region is peaceful most of the time. However this is changing. Dark times are coming to Elsir Vale and enemy forces are amassing on the borders.

You are a special military unit from Brindol sent to investigate strange happenings in the border regions of the land. Are you prepared to face what is to come?


Elsir Vale lies along the Dawn Way, an important trade route. The first settlers of this land were dwarves that built a great kingdom in Wyrmsmoke and Giantshield mountains. Even now aqueducts and cisterns are present in the land. After this kingdom passed into the annals of history, humans began to settle the land, first druidic communities, later founding the kingdom of Rhaestilor. Two hundred years ago the kingdom was destroyed by a horde of goblins. Now the land is less centralized with the biggest powers being the cities of Dennovar and Brindol. There are also other communities such as Drellin’s Ferry, the Hammerfist Holds, Elsircross, Marthon, Nimon’s Gap and Red Rock

Current Downtime Activities

Downtime activities: Please do only one

I’m taking my Major in Evil (requires 10 downtime days, 2000 GP in supplies)
You train with the Ghostlord, in the art of evil necromancy and Lichdom. You have the choice of either:

  • You can replace your Clockwork Sorcerer spells, with necromancy spells on a level up
  • You begin your studies in lichdom, maybe becoming a lich at the end of the story
  • Prepare a big surprise for the final fight

The other Downtime activities are (Note some of these will stay for a while, so if you can’t afford them now that’s fine):

Reuse, Reanimate, Recycle (requires 5 downtime days and 3000 GP)
You have a squashed and burned dragon skeleton and a skeletal behir. Maybe you can salvage something out of it. Reward: Depending on your luck, +X Bolts or Arrows, or even Bolts/Arrows of Slaying

Questioning Madness (5/10 or 15 for both Downtime Days, Proficiency in Arcana or History, 1500 GP in offerings)
You try and gain some information from the Ghostlord or his Lair. Perhaps there are some magical formulas lying around, or spellbooks from ~Tourists~. Otherwise you can try to ask him about the Fane of Tiamat. An adventure of its own.

Tomb Raider (requires 15 Downtime Days, 500 GP)
You prepare yourself to delve into dungeons and tombs, being better to evade traps and find hidden doors. Might be useful. Reward: Dungeon Delver Feat

Sneaky Business (Requires 10 Downtime Days, proficiency in Goblin and either access to Disguise Kit or disguising spells)
Perhaps you don’t want to storm the Fane and rather want to make a sneaky enterance. There are several Goblin and Hobgoblin identities just lying around. With a bit of creativity you might be able to sneak through the upper floors.

Masterwork (15 Days and 2000 GP Requires proficiency in Smiths tools, or Woodcarvers tools)
You improve one non-magical item, into an item that still counts as non-magical but is stronger than before.
Reward: +1 to attack and damage rolls for a non-magical item that will remain a non-magical item. That only counts for my table

Better Supplies (requires 10 Downtime Days and 350 GP per Potion)
You decide that your party need better equipment for the coming adventures. You can buy Potions of Greater Healing (4d4+4 Healing) at 350 GP a piece, at your local Ghostlord :).

Contact the Aranea (requires 7 Downtime Days and 1200 GP, Access to the spell Sending (Must not be prepared))
You use Mihani Arani as your contact, to give messages to the remaining Aranea in the area of the Wyrmsmoke mountains, perhaps to better locate the Fane of Tiamat or to throw sand in the gears of the goblin army.

Important Notes

  • If you want to play a goblin or goblinoid such as a bugbear please tell me, because of story reasons.
  • This campaign contains a lot of goblinoids as enemies
  • This campaign has a victory point system where you can fail in a mission but still win the war
  • This campign is limited in time, meaning travel times might become important.

I will be there to join RHoD once more since there is unfinished business!

Change of plans! Sadly I will have to hop out due to overlapping plans! See you next week, gamers. :partying_face: :sparkles:

With @frogemiah dropping out, looks like I’ll be joining @xaosseed at T1.

I will be there and join any T1 or T2 campaign with free slots =)
