That's right random anon who happens to read this post, it's /vx/'s third DnD campaign!

>What's this one about?

Chaos Ascending is an epic level campaign for DnD 3.5e. It takes place roughly 10,000 years before Celestia and Luna assume rule over Equestria. Technology is at a medieval level plus magic of course.
Equus during this era was a land of peace, the ponies and few other creatures inhabiting Equus living in harmony. The gods of this realm, know to the ponies only as The Unknown Ones, decided that nothing would disturb their harmony and moved on; only granting their power to the most dedicated of ponies. Soon, the ponies' society expanded across the planes. A Utopia was built on its own plane, serving as a hub of travel, politics, and trade. Ponies lived in happiness, nothing to disturb them. It was a land of peace and harmony, but rumors existed. Rumors that there were ponies who thought that harmony was worthless. Ponies who wished to disturb the order of the planes. Ponies who wished to ascend the agenda of…
Chaos…

>How long will it last?

Until I can progress through the entire story, which should take at the most three months of weekend play and about two months at the least, or until Atlas personally smites me. Whichever comes first.

>When does it start?

This is an advance notice so players have time to build characters, ask questions, and seek GM approval. The campaign will start in 2-3 weeks.

>When will we play?

Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. And then only if all players are available.


Here are the guidelines for building a character:
Level: 25
Sources for classes, feats, spells, etc.: Any as long as they are approved. No breaking my game
Wealth: 35,000,000 GP
Stats: Point buy with 34 points at your disposal. Buy your stats then apply racial stats. Here's the calculator I use: http://www.propelled.de/extern/chargen
Races:
Evil characters are not explicitly banned, but chaotic and neutral evil are HEAVILY discouraged against.

Earth Ponies:
+2 Str +2 Con
One maxed out skill related to cutie mark.
Earth Ponies receive Toughness as a bonus feat.
Earth Ponies can hold a two-handed weapon with their maw. Light weapons can be held with hooves.

Pegasi:
+2 Dex -2 Con
One maxed out skill related to cutie mark
Glide: A pegasus of any level can glide when falling at a speed of 40ft, negating all fall damage. This ability takes affect even when unconscious, though the user takes 1d6 falling damage.
Flight: A pegasus can use their wings for flight with a speed of 40ft (good maneuverability) beginning at lvl 5.
Pegasi can use two-handed weapons by holding it with their maw and using a wing to help maneuver the weapon, sacrificing flight. Light weapons can also be held with a wing, sacrificing flight.

Unicorns:
+2 Int -2 Str
One maxed out skill related to cutie mark
Unicorns receive Eschew Materials as a bonus feat.
Unicorns have two "handslots" using the magic of their horn, these extend to 10ft of reach. Two-handed weapons can be used with a unicorn's maw and a handslot or both handslots, either way rendering them unable to focus their magic on other tasks. Light weapons can be held in each handslot.

Crystal Ponies:
+2 Con -2 Dex
One maxed out skill related to cutie mark
Crystal Composition: Crystal ponies can turn their bodies crystalline, invoking different sets of bonuses and penalties. In this form they receive a +3 bonus to AC, and +3 to fortitude saves. As a tradeoff they take a -2 penalty to the following checks: Reflex, Swim, Tumble, Hide, Move Silently. This ability can only be activated 1/day.
Crystal Ponies use two-handed weapons by employing their maw and one hoof to control the weapon. This reduces their speed by 5ft.

Kirin:
+1 Wis +1 Cha
Nirik: A kirin's temper can ignite, making them rash and fierce. 1/day a Kirin can fly into a fury of emotion, turning into a Nirik for 1 round per level. This form grants the Kirin a +4 bonus to attacks, +1d4 fire damage to melee attacks, but invokes a -3 penalty to any wisdom related check or save.
Kirins have two "handslots" using the magic of their horn, these extend to 10ft of reach. Two-handed weapons can be used with a kirin's maw and a handslot or both handslots, either way rendering them unable to focus their magic on other tasks. Light weapons can be held in each handslot.

Bat Ponies:
+2 Wis -2 Cha
One maxed out skill related to cutie mark
Glide: A bat pony of any level can glide when falling at a speed of 40ft, negating all fall damage. This ability takes affect even when unconscious, though the user takes 1d6 falling damage.
Flight: A bat pony can use their wings for flight with a speed of 40ft (average maneuverability) beginning at lvl 5.
Dark vision to 60ft
+2 racial bonus to listen
Bat Ponies can use two-handed weapons by holding it with their maw and using a wing to help maneuver the weapon, sacrificing flight. Light weapons can also be held with a wing, sacrificing flight.



For those looking at the divine classes here's the pantheon:

The Unknown One Above All Earth Ponies
The Unknown One Above All Pegasi
The Unknown One Above All Unicorns
The Unknown One Above All Crystal Ponies
The Unknown One Above All Kirin
The Unknown One Above All Bat Ponies
The Unknown One Above All Dragons
The Unknown One Above All Evil
After the gods of old moved on, their names fell out of common use and slipped from memory. Now known only as The Unknown Ones, their clerics and paladins are often of the same race. Though there are always exceptions to the rules. Domains are not set, except the domains of Death and Evil, which are restricted to The Unknown One Above All Evil.

Gotcha

Discord begins to chuckle as he snaps his fingers, and all the party (ponies and cows) find themselves trapped in an invisible cage
"Now if you'd be so kind as to stay there a moment I would like to explain some things to you all."


I'll call this another stopping point, we'll resume next Friday.
Okay, now I'm really looking forward to this you guys. Feel free to ask questions in the thread as usual

7ba74 No.110444

>>110442
Wait, is my dragon out of the cage?
Yesh! Tiem to bullrush!
JK.
Another question, are all present stuck in the same invisible cage?

0529e No.110445

>>110442
Is that a Forcecage spell? Can Yertle absorb it?

Yay! I'll have time to actually finish my character!

I'm looking forward too. This is intense.

The trio is, along with the turtle and nun. But other than that it's all individual.
>>110445
I mean, he might melt if he tries

0529e No.110450

>>110449
It wouldn't require a roll. t just depends if he counts as a target of the spell.
It works like a rod of absorbtion, and he can absorb 43 levels of spells.

7ba74 No.110451

>>110449
Ey! The pet owner duo is together again!
>>110450
If it works, at least you'll get a construct to grapple any bullies, or get them thrown off of you by stronk Earth Poner hooves.

95051 No.110452

I don't see why Cowe is caged though, she hasn't done anything and she's carrying a flag.

0529e No.110453

>>110452
Must not be chaotic enough.

7ba74 No.110454

Discord has big brain, so he traps all of the dumb/powerful folk in cages because otherwise, they would've ran away.

>tfw you meant to mention that the Spellfire attack had a death by massive damage risk, but now it's too late

4d9a3 No.110460

Too bad that three sessions will pass before I even has the time to make it. Has time tomorrow but by then I guess I am too late?

Well, I have read through your session. Seems like you have fun.

Our next session is Friday actually

7ba74 No.110464

I think he can manage to place you in the cage along with the others if you believe your character to be bold enough to enter it.
Which you most likely should due to it being epic level.

3d069 No.110473

>>110461
Okay, then I will make a character till then. Where should I post the chratcter sheet? In the thread?
>>110464
Or I could be in one of the cages, assuming not all ponies were sacrificed in one fell swop when Discord was summoned, that imprison the ponies the chaos cult had captured or something. I will leave that up to the GM if he thinks he can handle another player and wants to throw me in to the story this late. It is your campaign i don't want to butt in.
I will return to this thread tomorrow evening.

7ba74 No.110474

>>110473
See, the ponies inside the cages got fucked really hard by a massive explosion. However, the option is still available for you.
As for butting in, I suppose it's not a big deal for now. It's only the beginning, probably setting up motivations to stop the evil serpent dragon thing as well as fleshing out the world, maybe. Some sort of urgency injected to it, too.

5fdcf No.110537

>>110473
I could actually fit you in quite easily, we'll be playing again Friday night if you'd like to join us.
I'd be happy to have another player.

c286d No.110635

>>110537
Nice, then I will return here tomorrow. I will likely have built a character and read the rules (that handbook) until then.

0529e No.110722

>>110635
There's an Epic Level Handbook you should look at too.
We're doing lvl 25, so the party are meant to represent Primordial demigod-like figures.

When I rearranged Sister Ash's stats, I took her starting int that was orignally 14 and made it 10, same for Charisma.
I was sort of panicked the day of the first session when i realized that her Constitution was inexcusably low for a character who was ideally meant to be more melee than caster. Th enhancement bonuses only get her so much, and they don't increase until 3 levels from now.

d659f No.110754

>>110752
Understandable.
It's still kinda funny tho.
Ash is Phospy's sister? GET ON IT, THEORISTS.

0529e No.110765

Are we playing Friday or Saturday?
I need to know for scheduling reasons. My time budget has been cut recently.

f34c5 No.110766

>>110765
My Fridays are honestly cut too, since I have obligations until 10 PM.
Supposedly it's all Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

0529e No.110767

>>110766
I'm technically free Friday, but I also typically have assignments due, so I just need to know ahead of time.

f34c5 No.110768

I'd only be free from 10 PM ART onwards, so it's even less so in my case.

Yes actually. She has a 1d6 bite attack due to her drifts too.

f34c5 No.110848

Oh. Good thing Topaz has a dragon as a pet,
then.

She might've gotten the wrong idea and think you eat meat as a hobby.

She'd rather die.

Phospy isn't a hervibore…
Unless you mixed up the Dragon and Diamond, the Earth Pony with smol brain.

0529e No.110856

>>110852
Oh, that was just a general statement referring to ponies.

It's normal for dragons though. I think Topaz dragons mostly eat fish, iirc.

f34c5 No.110858

>>110856
Technically Ash is a dragonborn, so she could also eat meat.

0529e No.110864

>>110858
>technically
She's literally a Dragonborn. I added all those drifts to dispel any notion of her not looking like a Kirin post rebirth. I took heart aspect so that her breath weapon makes up for loss of fire powers, and cast mantle of the fiery spirit to make her fireproof.
Being a Dragonborn doesn't make her any less of an uber-vegan hippie Ascetic though. She's been fasting for more than 700 years; she wouldn't want to break her streak with blasphemy.

0529e No.110872

Although she occasionally finds herself fighting off an instinctive urge to sleep on piles of gold.

Forget I said anything, then.

Phospy can share the urge if she wants to.
Although he'd probably be upset.
