Welcome to Curse of the Crimson The kings and queens of Korvosa have long ruled under the shadow of the Curse of the Crimson Throne - an infamous superstition claiming that no monarch of the city of Korvosa shall ever die of old age or produce an heir. Whether or not there is any truth to the legend of the curse, Korvosa's current king is but the latest victim to succumb to this foul legacy... Your characters are all tied to a man named Gaedren , a detestable crime lord. Pathfinder Resources: http://www.archivesofnethys.com/ <------ Everything from every book.

Restrictions: Character switching will only be be allowed under the following conditions: Your character dies accidentally or the party agrees that 1 PC needs to be changed and has a plan for how to transition it smoothly. I'm serious. You had better damn well make sure you're creating a character you could play for years.  For this campaign custom races are prohibited. Home brew is prohibited Advanced Classes from the Advanced Class Guide is prohibited. Lawful evil is the only evil alignment I'll allow. It's like having a politician in the party or a lawyer. Don't disrupt the game while people are trying to play - It's fine if I'm pulling up a map or otherwise getting things sorted. Let's respect each others time and story. I need at least 24 hour notice you're going to be missing unless it's an emergency you have no way to impact. Miss 2 sessions in a row or 10% of games, you're out. Chronic absentees are toxic to a game. I'm reasonable though so we can discuss if this rule needs to come up. Rule Changes: 1.
