War of Burning Sky part 1 The Scouring of Gate Pass

Welcome to the first adventure in the War of the Burning Sky campaign saga. Throughout the course of the campaign saga, a party of heroes become involved in an escalating war between mighty magical nations, and after many adventures, military battles, and mysterious intrigue, it will be up to them to decide who will emerge victorious and rule in the aftermath.

Drakus Coaltongue, Emperor of Ragesia and bearer of the Torch of the Burning Sky, has fallen, and now the new Empress Leska has sent her armies on the march to war to recover the lost artifact. Her first target: the neutral city of Gate Pass, where a spy for the fledgling Resistance has taken vital war intelligence.

On New Year's Eve, the Ragesian military prepares its assault, wyvern knights and legions of infantry arming for battle. The heroes must contact the spy and get a case of critical plans out of the city before the inquisitors, Ragesia’s infamous mage-hunting clerics, find them. Can you survive the Scouring of Gate Pass?

Dec 6, 2013 12:12 AM - Tracy: HE HE HE! Can't help but post...2 years running!

Great game tonight guys and can't wait to see how it unfolds next week.
Aug 30, 2012 1:27 PM - Tracy: Holy Crap! I can't believe a year is almost here! Next Thursday brings all 8 of us together again for the epic continuation of the WoBS!
Nov 3, 2011 5:11 PM - Jensen: Great Adventure 1 you guys. I had a blast running the first adventure for this amazing Saga
Nov 3, 2011 2:24 AM - Tracy: I have to say, nothing is cooler than being told that, "you talked your way passed 6 encounters". What a great adventure and I can't wait for the second part. My hat's off to Chris Jensen. Not only is talking your way through 6 encounters awesome, but to do it and not even realize you are doing it, that says something.
Nov 1, 2011 11:54 PM - Jensen: Times square. 7pm. No Zach and no Ross. There going to be missed. Bring 3rd level characters with your magic items on character.
Nov 1, 2011 8:55 PM - John McCullough: And who will be missing? Ross and Zach?
Nov 1, 2011 8:55 PM - John McCullough: So, where are we playing tomorrow night?
Oct 27, 2011 1:07 PM - Ross H: Times Square tonight, yes?
Oct 25, 2011 10:54 AM - John McCullough: Something's come up at work and I won't be able to make the Wednesday one-shot. Good thing we are on Thursday this week!
Oct 25, 2011 10:07 AM - Ross H: So, just to check: WoBS is Thursday this week, right? John had suggested a one-off game Weds night, are folks feeling like that? I'm available.
Oct 25, 2011 12:46 AM - John McCullough: I edited the wish list and it broke the table. I just created a new item called 'Ethan's Wishlist' and put my stuff in there.
Oct 25, 2011 12:46 AM - John McCullough: I edited the wish list and it broke the table. I just created a new item called 'Ethan's Wishlist' and put my stuff in there.
Oct 24, 2011 4:32 PM - Jensen: Wishlist is up on the website. just go into edit the "item wishlist" page and delete your name next to 1, 2, etc. I need 5 items from you guys ranging from level 1-5. mark C for common and UC for Uncommon in front of the item so I have a better idea on who would have what.
Oct 20, 2011 5:12 PM - Jensen: Thursday October 27th, 7pm. Laurie's office. Bring a Level 3 character. Act IV the road beyond Gate Pass.
Oct 19, 2011 10:27 AM - Jensen: No Bring a level 3 not a level 4. You never know what will happen in the burning sky
Oct 19, 2011 10:15 AM - Graham: bring a lvl 4?
Oct 19, 2011 9:12 AM - Jensen: PACE 7pm. same building as in the past. See you guys there.
Oct 19, 2011 8:47 AM - Tracy: I'm looking forward to tonight! I will try my best not to be late, but I may be a little tardy. I am rehearsing for a presentation I'm a part of on Friday and I'm not sure the exact time it will wrap up.
Oct 18, 2011 10:36 PM - John McCullough: Back at Pace this week, right? I can't wait! See everyone tomorrow.
Oct 13, 2011 6:31 PM - Tracy: Agreed, this is my highlight of the week every week. Thanks everyone. :)
Oct 13, 2011 10:41 AM - Jensen: Great session last night! I love this dynamic group. Always an enjoyable fun time to be had and one of my highlights for the week, every week look forward to rolling some dice with you guys and your crazy character band
Oct 12, 2011 4:32 PM - John McCullough: A D&D themed poster from my lovely wife: http://verydemotivational.files.wordpress.com/2011/09/demotivational-posters-clerics.jpg
Oct 12, 2011 12:26 AM - Jensen: Remember bring your level one character and a level 2 character. you have enough experience for the level up
Oct 12, 2011 12:25 AM - Jensen: Tomorrows game is going to be at Grahams Wifes office. everyone should know the address but if not text me and I will email them. see you guys there. 7pm gametime
Oct 5, 2011 5:01 PM - John McCullough: No worries. Work comes up from time to time. We were actually at a pretty good spot in the story to have an extended break. I can't wait for next week!
Oct 5, 2011 1:54 PM - Jensen: Pat and zach actually are working for me tonight. Sorry John and to the rest of the amazing cast of WOBS
Oct 5, 2011 12:52 PM - John McCullough: Pat, Zach - you guys up for an alternate game? I'll fun for four people, but if there will just be me, Ross and TJ we'll just call it for tonight.
Oct 5, 2011 10:10 AM - Graham: bummer we can't play, but i was actually stressing about work too so ill take tonight to get caught up.
Oct 5, 2011 10:04 AM - Ross H: @John, I could do that if there's a critical mass!

@TJ email on the way!
Oct 5, 2011 9:43 AM - Tracy: If everyone is up for it I'm game. Otherwise I'm going to prep for this Friday. :) @ Ross when you get a second could you email me: tjgingell@gmail.com re: pathfinder campaign
Oct 5, 2011 12:00 AM - John McCullough: Oh no! Do the rest of you guys want to get together and play something? I've got an adventure I could run called Crucible of the Gods. It's for first level characters... I recommend Essentials only to keep it simple.

If y'all are interested we can meet at Au Bon Gout at 7:00pm. Please reply and let me know what you think.
Oct 4, 2011 10:31 PM - Jensen: Hello team, im sorry to do this on such late notice but Im going to have to cancel tomorrows game. Something has come up with work. my apologies, im sorry Ross. It has been to long since Mother Ulv has been with the party I hope your trip was well
Sep 29, 2011 10:52 AM - Graham: what a blast!! Looks like our points are starting to expire. doh
Sep 22, 2011 11:23 AM - John McCullough: Tons of fun, y'all! I think we're settling into a really good groove. A little intra-party conflict or personality clash makes for good fun. I think during the first session we were all a little over-eager to establish our characters and ended up stepping on each other's lines a little bit. Last night was way more balanced, and I hope everyone still felt like they got a chance to bask in the RP spotlight. @Graham: Best wishes for the surgery today.
Sep 21, 2011 11:50 PM - Tracy: No way, role playing ftw. As long as we always have a cleric with raise dead hiding in the shadows, we're golden. Besides, we'll hit 6 milestones an hour now we're figuring out how to play our characters. :)
Sep 21, 2011 11:47 PM - Graham: Thanks for the good time. It really helped me take my mind off of cancer. Sorry i was a dick as a player and totally ineffectual as a character.
Sep 18, 2011 7:24 PM - Jensen: Alright, so everyone has joined the website. Yeah for everyone for being on board. I also, have given everyone control of your character on the website. So please feel free to take a moment and post a little bit about your character. maybe a picture. Thanks for those who have done so already
Sep 15, 2011 8:52 PM - Jensen: I sent you all email invites to the campaign website. Please join up. War is here and in need of a few strong men and a lady
Sep 15, 2011 4:48 PM - Jensen: well looks like everyone will be there to find the most vile gnome in the world. See you guys all back in the DnD Cave
Sep 15, 2011 1:50 PM - John McCullough: Woohoo! Go Laurie!
Sep 15, 2011 11:55 AM - Graham: actually Laurie is insisting I play on Wednesday. What a woman
Sep 15, 2011 10:53 AM - John McCullough: Saturday isn't great, but I could play in the evening (7pm) if that works for everyone else.
Sep 15, 2011 9:42 AM - Ross H: Saturday isn't great for me :/
Sep 15, 2011 1:09 AM - Tracy: Jensen says this would work for him.
Sep 15, 2011 1:08 AM - Tracy: So I now have nothing going on Saturday. Would anyone be able to play this Saturday? Then we could make sure that Graham doesn't have to worry about next week!
Sep 14, 2011 2:45 PM - Jensen: HA HAHA!!! oh I cant wait to hear how you two are related or not. damn cows
Sep 14, 2011 1:02 PM - John McCullough: waitaminnit! TWO minotaurs!?! Chris, I hope you're wearing your 'getting charged' boots.
Sep 14, 2011 11:58 AM - Tracy: Much obliged,Mother Ulv, I greatly appreciate the offer, as I'm extremely concerned about the price of turnips going up this year. What with this weather we've been havin' I reckon it's a gonna be a rough year for crops. The military depends something fierce on an abundance of produce to keep our supplies well stocked and a hungry army is a dead one.
Sep 14, 2011 9:33 AM - Ross H: Yes, Mother Ulv agree that political engagement very important for all! Decisions being made that affect all of us. Must make sure your voice is heard! Am hosting town hall meeting in my tavern this week, want to hear your concerns and will take them back to city council.
Sep 14, 2011 9:18 AM - John McCullough: I hope everyone is ready for a game chock-full of responsible civic engagement!
Sep 13, 2011 9:58 AM - John McCullough: I'm pumped. Can't wait to get rolling on this game!
Sep 12, 2011 11:24 AM - Jensen: alright everybody Ill Be posting Backgrounds for everyone today. Its Based on your class/race. I will also be posting directions to venue for those who are not familiar with location. Cant wait to start this Campaign and begin the War
Sep 11, 2011 9:26 AM - John McCullough: Mondays are ok. I can play Thursdays if we are abandoning Ashenport to its fate.
Sep 10, 2011 5:19 PM - Pbren : So long as were still playing around 7 mon and thur are fine.
Sep 10, 2011 3:29 PM - Ross H: Hey Chris, what should we do re: themes, etc?
Sep 8, 2011 1:11 PM - Ross H: In general, yes. That week, Thursday is better for me - I've got a work event I can't miss on Monday.
Sep 8, 2011 1:10 PM - Jensen: I totally understand Graham. I am figuring out entire schedule these next few days. I need to move a couple of days a round and I don't want you to miss anything. Are Mondays, Thursdays good alternate days for everyone if I have to move some days around to accommodate everyone?
Sep 8, 2011 11:36 AM - Graham: I'm going to have to bail on the 21st. My wife's surgery was scheduled the next morning at 6am. Sorry
Aug 21, 2011 11:53 PM - Kenny P: I so wanna join the game, but don't want to push anyone aside. If anyone drops out ... XD
Aug 21, 2011 11:49 PM - Kenny P: Evoker's a Mage specializing in the evocation school (most damaging spells)
Aug 21, 2011 11:21 PM - Tracy: What's an evoker? :)
Aug 1, 2011 11:14 AM - Jensen: yes, make sure to read only the players guide and not the dm guide. also I will be posting in the next few weeks some backgrounds and themes that could be useful to you all.
Aug 1, 2011 11:02 AM - Ross H: There's a players guide available under the "Intro Pack" tab at http://www.enworld.org/ap/wotbs.html which should provide some background, etc. That could be useful for putting together a party theme and all that...
Jul 29, 2011 8:10 PM - John McCullough: What's the group consensus on character themes? I'm not sure if there is one that fits my concept, and I'm not interested in themes for themes' sake. Whaddy'all think?
Jul 29, 2011 7:50 PM - John McCullough: Does anyone want to have a party theme or backstory before we start?
Jul 29, 2011 7:48 PM - John McCullough: I'm totally in. What sort of environment will be starting in? Quasi-european woodland?
Jul 25, 2011 6:10 PM - Jensen: John hope you can join. Missed you this summer cant wait to start gaming with you again.
Jul 25, 2011 6:08 PM - Jensen: No problem Ross. Once we get the rest of the group I have no problem moving one day. Glad you are joining up for the War
Jul 25, 2011 5:59 PM - Jensen: Here are the dates and times I would like to run this. Lets get a group and see if we need to manuever a day around to accommodate. Wednesday nights work best for the people I have talked to and also for the space we will be playing at.
Jul 25, 2011 5:57 PM - Ross H: These dates look great! I know I'm going to be out 9/28 (going to a wedding in CA) - I'm going to sign up anyway, I'll assume we can either reschedule that or I can sit that one out, yeah? Can't wait, really looking forward to this one!
Jul 24, 2011 11:10 AM - John McCullough: Wednesdays would be fine with me. Looking forward to it.
Jul 18, 2011 3:10 PM - Ross H: Chris, what're you thinking about scheduling for this?
May 23, 2011 8:49 PM - RyanAdams: Looks like this might be full already. But im interested if some on drops out
May 19, 2011 4:05 PM - Pbren : Anythings good with me. You make my schedule Chris so my conflicts are probably yours.
May 19, 2011 12:14 PM - Graham: Wednesday's are good!
May 17, 2011 5:37 PM - Ross H: Wednesdays sound good to me. I'm out of town one Wednesday at the end of August (going to PAX) and then one more at the end of September, but sure we can make it work.
May 17, 2011 5:34 PM - Jensen: I can run it Wednesday nights. Im just waiting to hear back from Graham on if Wednesday nights work best for him come September. Than I will post dates. Glad you and Pat are wanting to play this
May 17, 2011 5:02 PM - Zachary: You should run the games on Wednesdays. Wednesdays would be perfect.
May 17, 2011 3:55 PM - Zachary: This sounds cool but I'm not sure how well Thursdays will work for me. I'll try though.
May 16, 2011 6:05 PM - Ross H: Very interested in this! I was actually going to post to run it if it didn't show up soon - looks like an awesome game. I'm totally in.
May 16, 2011 1:01 PM - Jensen: I would like to start to run this middle/end of august into September on Thursday nights, however will wait to see who is available interested before posting dates and times.
