Fourthcore - The Sundering of the Earth
Cost: $0.00
Level: 8

First Session: Monday -- April 16th, 2012 -- 7:00 PM
[Eastern Time]

Approx. Length: 1 session

Fourthcore adventure meant to be like a delve. Players should hopefully complete it in a timed 3-5 hour session. These are meant to be rediculously difficult and challenging. Meaning you die, and try again, repeat until the time is up.Link to What is Fourthcore?

Corrupted by promises of great power, a mated pair of Dragons, Scatha and Drogoth, have succumbed to the whispered lies of Primordial masters. They have bathed in the fires of the ever?changing Elemental Chaos, and have begun the rituals needed to break the Primal Ban on the world and allow their masters to run rampant, tearing apart all of creation into its base elemental components. Already their powerful spells are taking hold in the world. An ancient and abandoned castle, Tethys Keep, has been physically ripped from the ground, as a swirling maelstrom of storm and stone swirls about it. It is here that the dragons have made a new lair, heralding the triumph of the Primordials.

The gods have set aside their ordinary petty squabbles, and called upon their designated champions: you.

Apr 24, 2012 7:56 PM - Tracy: I posted this again for anyone interested. :)
Apr 19, 2012 5:09 PM - T Michael: Hi Tracy, if you prefer a Monday, then May 7th, May 14th, or May 21st would work for me.
Apr 19, 2012 5:03 PM - Tracy: Don't forget to vote, and if any of you that are still interested want to post a good day for you I'll put up another session. After all, I have these awesome materials that would just go to waste otherwise... ;)
Apr 17, 2012 2:18 PM - Tracy: I'm hope you guys had fun...I was really hoping that boulder was going to roll off the cliff with you impaled on it, or the gate would have sliced you into 1" pieces, or you had discovered the lodestone trap! I'll run this again soon...especially since I have all the stuff ready for it and there was a lot of interest.
Apr 17, 2012 10:10 AM - Matt H: Seriously, thanks for running...that thing seemed like a monster to prep, and it came off without a hitch.
Apr 17, 2012 12:52 AM - AVacc: I had a blast - The whole thing was perfectly prepared and run! Well done and Thanks!!
Apr 17, 2012 12:27 AM - Tracy: You guys did fantastic. I can't believe you bypasses 2 of the hardest encounters and were able to bypass numerous traps. You all managed to roll superbly as well with random effects giving you some nice boons.
Apr 16, 2012 4:25 PM - Vlad: I'll be a shardmind psion with a feat that gives everyone around me (range 5) a free save when I spend a surge (2nd wind, items or via leader-granted heals). I am also trained in Perception (17), History (15), Dungeoneering (13), Arcana (17)
Apr 16, 2012 12:52 PM - Matt H: Both of my leaders can grant saves 1/enc. Get stunned twice and get left behind...
Apr 16, 2012 11:27 AM - Josh M.: quick question: is anyone going to have powers that grant other people saving throws?
Apr 16, 2012 7:42 AM - T Michael: Tracy and everyone, Sorry for any confusion, I thought I pulled my name off the list. I am on my way to Nashville and cannot make it tonight. Someon should take my place. Have a great time and I will see you soon.
Apr 15, 2012 6:52 PM - Tommy T: Ah, too bad. I already made other plans with Deirdre. Enjoy the game!
Apr 15, 2012 6:09 PM - Tracy: @Tommy, I think there is an open spot if I don't hear back from T Michael you are more than welcome to join. :D
Apr 15, 2012 6:06 PM - Tracy: With that, don't be afraid to take some rituals. ;)
Apr 15, 2012 6:06 PM - Tracy: Finally, Only bring 1 character, this one is slightly different from other delves in a) you are not set on a timer AND b) I've done something different for what happens when you die. :)
Apr 15, 2012 6:04 PM - Tracy: Alright everyone. Au Bon Gout tomorrow..T Michael are you still able to play? Your last post says no, but you are still signed up. :)
Apr 14, 2012 9:39 PM - Xerek: Where is this happening?
Apr 11, 2012 10:39 PM - Xerek: Ashar is joining this party to talk some sense into Scatha and Drogoth and convince them of their folly. Failing that, she is sworn to remove the threat they present through any means necessary, generally not a full frontal assault though.
Apr 11, 2012 10:36 PM - Xerek: Since I wasn't sure what skills we were lacking, I loaded up. My strong ones are: Arcana - 20, History - 15, Religion - 15, Dungeoneering - 10, Athletics - 9. I'm also able to use Arcana checks for Stealth and Intimidate. I resist 5 Fire, Cold, Thunder, Force and Psychic (I can trade Force for another element if you have suggestions). I also have a Helm of Battle which is a +1 item bonus to initiative to everyone within 5.
Apr 10, 2012 3:52 PM - T Michael: Sadly, I have to go to Nashville for work on Monday and no flight gets me back to NYC until after 8:00. I am disappointed to miss Tracy as DM and my first fourthcore. If you reschedule for any reason I would like to be back in.
Apr 4, 2012 2:36 PM - Xerek: So what skills are we lacking?
Apr 4, 2012 1:51 PM - Tracy: Having a 3 striker party will really only help you with about 15% of the mod...the cool thing about this 4th core is it is only partially written and leaves a lot of room for me to insert my own stuff and I've got some devious traps from earlier editions I can't wait to throw at you! Mwahahaha*cough*haha
Apr 4, 2012 1:07 PM - Josh M.: there definitely isn't any harm in doubling up defender or leader though, so people shouldn't shy away from those roles just because we have one.
Apr 4, 2012 1:01 PM - Vlad: Looks like the important roles are covered. I'll probably make an arcane striker leaning on control side, with training in history, arcana and more.
Apr 4, 2012 1:00 PM - Josh M.: Hmm... maybe I'll hold onto acrobatics then... >.>
Though really, in fourthcore, any skill check could mean the difference between life and death
Apr 4, 2012 12:58 PM - Tracy: Remember in fouthcore...an athletics or acrobatics check could be the difference of life and death. :) Floating castle anyone? Mwahahahaha
Apr 4, 2012 12:56 PM - Josh M.: so, one of my guys will be an Eladrin Fighter. Very sticky and protective. Trained skills: Acrobatics, Athletics, Endurance, Heal
If we need help covering a different skill though, I can swap out Acrobatics for anything else.
Apr 3, 2012 5:51 PM - T Michael: My Githzerai Psion, Xerxes, is trained in Arcana 14, Dungeoneering 14, Endurance 13, Perception 16, and Religion 14. I am flexible in my choice to optimize our first round party.
Apr 2, 2012 4:15 PM - Tracy: I highly suggest you all synergize skils with each other just to make sure you have a good spread. Also, remember to bring 2 characters so that when your first one dies you have something to do. :p
Mar 30, 2012 4:22 PM - Rob P: Ah, monday is a no go for me :(. Ill stay on the interested lost on the off chance the date is changed up
Mar 30, 2012 3:10 PM - damien721: Yeah, basically I'm not a good defender, that's my reasoning.
Mar 30, 2012 10:45 AM - Tracy: Hi damien, thanks for the offer. Remember this uses the Campaign Gaming character creation house rules listed above. So unless you can't fill a defender role because you hate it, then you can create any character you want for this within the guidelines.
Mar 30, 2012 3:53 AM - damien721: I'm interested, maybe we can do it at my house.I can fill any role except defender.
Mar 28, 2012 5:29 PM - Tracy: its for 7 :p didn't realize I forgot to change it on the main page!
Mar 28, 2012 4:15 PM - Rob P: What are the possible dates? Is it really monday at 12 in the afternoon? Or was that just a place holder?
Mar 28, 2012 1:28 PM - Tracy: That would be great Deirdre...also let me know what day works best for you so I can schedule the next Dresden date. :D
Mar 27, 2012 6:14 PM - Deirdre: I'd like in on this, but I need to see how my schedule shapes up.
Mar 25, 2012 12:36 AM - Tracy: Awesome T Michael! Yes indeed. Bring two and be ready for anything. :)
Mar 21, 2012 8:39 PM - T Michael: I am super excited for my first fourthcore and tracy as a dm. Am I correct to make at least two characters for this? My first will be a githzerai psion.
Mar 13, 2012 11:12 PM - Tracy:
You have been imbued with divine power, and tasked with a quest, setting the fate of the entirety of creation upon your weary shoulders. The corrupted dragons have been blinded and tricked for a short while, allowing a small band of adventurers the opportunity to sneak into the winding paths of their lair undetected.
Mar 13, 2012 11:12 PM - Tracy: You must storm the floating castle, reclaim its artifacts, and use these weapons to defeat the traitorous dragons and seal the rent in the world spilling out the effluvium of the Elemental Chaos.
