    The town of Imber is on the very edge of “safe” territory in the human kingdom of Stier. It was established around 40 years ago as a mining town, and has been particularly successful. Despite the dangers of the area, the town is really quite busy. The mines are incredibly profitable, and as such, people have flocked to Imber to cash in.

    Imber is situated in a temperate area, mainly grassland and rolling hills surround it, with the occasional river running between the hills, from the forests to the north, to the ocean to the south. To the West is the rest of the kingdom. News travels slowly across the kingdom, only arriving with the empty wagons used to take the precious minerals to the capital city of Stiervahl.

    To the east of Imber lie the lawless barbarian lands. However, it’s not just wild men that inhabit them. Orcs, goblins, and other creatures lurk in the dark marshlands. There were clashes when Imber was established, around 40 years ago, but these have gradually died down over time. Aside from the occasional goblin attack, the town is relatively safe. Despite this, it maintains a fairly large guard presence.

    Lately, there has been increasing tension in the town. About 10 years ago, the Eishel family that owned two of the most profitable mines in town was rocked by the extremely suspicious death of the head of the household, Adelbert. He was one of the founders of the town, and his death sent shockwaves through the family, and the remaining members left the town for Stiervahl. In the last couple of weeks, the eldest son of Adelbert, a young man named Viseri returned to the town to reclaim his familys mines.
    This has caused uproar as within the 10 year gap, all the mines that had been controlled by old families had become essentially “property of the town”. Viseri’s claims have caused several other families to consider demanding their mines back, and the poorer folk of the town, the miners, are caught in the middle.

    On top of this, there are rumors of strange goings on in the mines. The miners are fairly superstitious at the best of times, but even so, it’s rare to see them like this.

    The players will start in Imber. Just about all classes are acceptable, as are most races. The town is a fairly diverse place due to the wealth brought into the town by the mining trade. This, combined with the dangers of a town so close to the wildlands, makes it appealing for adventurers of all sorts.

    Starting level is 1. If you want an obscure race/class/feat/spell, please clear it with me first. This is ESPECIALLY important with races and classes. I’m willing to allow most things, but I’d like some advance warning and a chance to veto.

    That’s about it, I think.

    Time of the IRC game? What do you have in mind?

    Truth be told, playing an IRC game from 4 in the morning had taken its toll on me. So I can only join if the time slot is nice. :)

    To be honest, it'd probably be a similar time, only on a different day. Possibly Thursday.

    Another player is expressing an interest, probably going to play a barbarian.

    I will probably play a Sorc. Will you be around tomorrow night (Sunday) say around 10ish?

    Or perhaps a Spirit Shaman... Complete Divine I believe? I'd need to look up the source book to be sure.

    Sorc is definately fine.

    Spirit Shaman I don't know that well, but from what I remember of them, they're fine too :) I think it's either Complete Divine or PHB2, i'll have a read of them soon.

    Also, i'm out all tomorrow (At D&D, no less), and i'm not sure when i'll be back. I'll hop into #sp_mm when I arrive though.

    Sure thing, I'll likely be up late playing Morrowind so I'll stay on MSN while I play. I'll look up a pdf of spirit shaman, I have a few ideas about a character concept for one that I really like.

    What alignment are we playing? I'm thinking of going CG but obviously party alignment needs to be close to a match for it to work...

    Also, I've changed direction a bit and rolled up an Arctic Gnome Wizard if that's alright. I rolled with proper dice, but due to the nature of the extremely lucky rolls I got, you may want me to reroll in #sp_mm (though I sincerely hope not :))

    Anyone who wants to social with their new characters, I'll be around tonight from about 9.30 and up for it. Are there any players other than myself and 8people at the moment?

    I can probably play. I'd want Archivist, Cloistered Cleric with some variant rules yet unchosen, or a heavily varianted Drood.

    Hi, it's MZ from #Giantitp. I'd play. I'll do the roguelike and play the Scout class. I'd be interested in playing in your game, for sure.

    Could this possibly mean that not only do we have a party of 4, but it's a perfect set of the classic collection of arcanist, priest, warrior and sneak? :D

    Rogue

    Alright, I'll get started on my build. May I take disable device as a class skill to be more of an adept roguelike?
