CloudSpire Chronicles

Every Friday from 7pm PST to Midnight, we play D&D 5th Edition in a world based on Forgotten Realms in the far future.

A diesel punk setting consisting of a world being consumed, floating expansive islands in the sky and the lifestyle that goes with them.

Airships, flotillas, and entire societies trawl the sky seeking their prey, whatever that may be. Upon the surface of Torril, the denizens try to fight against the destructive forces all around them. In the under dark, great and unnatural things take place, gestating and bursting to the surface.

Fluff aside, the world is based in a northern kingdom known was the Cloud Spires mountain range. It is the northern most point of the Spine of the World, which is still known as the Spine of the World.

The entire Cloud Spires mountain range is approximately 100 kilometers.

Due to the entrenched nature of the civilization and the perilous rock formations, air ships must be specially equipped to traverse more than the primary roost provided at the Royals Peak, the highest, flattest and most open pinnacle amidst the many mountain peaks.

Nearby rest many landmarks including Farspine Monestary from the overlooking Farspine mountain peak, Daeds Outreach at Dorums Plateau.

This campaign has a rich pedigree of characters, a growing scope of challenges with a complex range of variables born of the players doings. The campaign is written as a sitcom, where over an average of 5 hours I take my players through a few paces of drama and the battles that may ensue.

While the combat ranges from base to intensely contextual, the story aims to involve everyone to a degree based on what their character needs out of the world.

I take a lot of pride in how this campaign has turned out, and I can't wait to leave it behind for my next story.

On occasion he has provided his training as a CoS assault mage, diving into danger zones when necessary.

Currently in a contract with the Ketterrog organization, Echelon, he is providing his arcanic skills in the study of some clandestine fabrications of a macabre sort. If you have any information please call the Church of Sun & Scroll, or shout to the dawn father for guidance and await fates hand.

Eilonwy Llewellyn

eilonwy

Eilonwy is a young Half-elf cleric of Oghma, though she some musical talent a bard. She became an Ohgmite because being part of the church allowed her to continue to study and make new discoveries. She has a close relationship with the god Oghma and calls him "Grandfather". Eilonwy also has a talent for the lyre, piano, and for singing, and sometimes plays for small crowds at local inns.

Personality

Eilonwy is shy, kind, but also hot-headed. She loses her temper easily when she is frustrated and is not above smacking her teammates. She tries to do the right thing as much as possible, but she gets overwhelmed. Her main focus in life is to make discoveries and learn about the world around her. Eilonwy is not easily disgusted, which makes her adept both at the healing arts and biological research.

As an Oghmite who frequents the front lines she has taken up the mantle of Chronicler. She transcribes the stories and events of herself and her companions during their adventures. These writings are then archived in the Church of Sun and Scroll.

Family

Eilonwy is close to her father. Dirk Llewellyn, and his side of the family, having been raised by them. The Llewellyns are all devout Oghmites, which is where Eilonwy first began her worship of the God of Knowledge. She has aunts, uncles, and cousins on her father's side.

Mactillion Llewellyn is her father's eldest brother, and Eilonwy only met her uncle for the first time recently, as he had been traveling since before Eilonwy was born.

Elizabeth Moonshadow, Eilonwy's mother, left her when she was young, and as such Eilonwy does not trust women. Eilonwy does not know her mother's side of the family, although she has met her grandmother, Zanya Zasladev, another high elf. Because Zanya was the third wife of a lower elven lord, Eilonwy potentially has many cousins on her mother's side as well.
