The Westgate Adventurers' GuildBackgroundThe Westgate Adventurers' Guild (WAG) is an Adventuring Company for the RPGA's Living Forgotten Realms Campaign. The City of Westgate is a dangerous place, a city renowned for its rich merchant families, a powerful thieves' guild, and rumours of hidden treasures. Westgate's reputation can be summed up by the phrase 'anything goes, and everything has a price.' All too often adventurers seeking employment and riches in the city fall foul of one group or another, generally with unpleasant and sometimes fatal results. Under these circumstances in 1480DR the WAG was formed to bring together adventurers of all kinds, mercenary sellswords and selfless heroes alike. Within the walls of Westgate and beyond the WAG facilitates the mustering of adventuring parties and provides some measure of security both in negotiations and conflict with powerful employers. The Westgate Adventurers' Guild has no formal leadership, its members all considered equals.WAG Membership Requirements1. Player character members must conform to all current RPGA LFR character creation guidelines;2. Players may only have one player character in the Westgate Adventurer's Guild at any one time;3. Membership of the Westgate Adventurer's Guild is open to all player characters with the home region of Dragon Coast, and any other player characters who have completed an adventure set in the City of Westgate. Players are encouraged to register their characters on the database at the following yahoo group games.groups.yahoo.com/group/lfrwag ;4. The Westgate Adventurers' Guild must contain at least four PC's at any one time. If the adventuring company's roll ever drops below four PC's, it is considered inactive (PC members gain no benefits for being a part of the company) until such time as its roll rises to four PC's or the company chooses to disband;5. Members of the WAG are known to identify their affiliation by wearing a blue cloth tied around the neck, left arm or left leg;6. Members of the WAG are encouraged to give aid to any other member of the Guild who requires assistance, or at least not actively oppose other WAG members providing they are not acting against the interests of the Guild; and7. When engaged in battle with known agents of the merchant houses, thieves' guild or other powerful groups active in Westgate members of the WAG are encouraged to exercise restraint and where possible not slay such agents. This policy may reduce the likelihood of reprisals and encourage these groups in return to show mercy to members of the WAG in similar situations.Adventuring Company BenefitsMember PC's gain two important benefits listed below. As the campaign progresses, more benefits may be revealed for adventuring companies.1. Gain a bonus action point for the group when playing at an adventuring company table. Whenever at least four members of the Westgate Adventurers' Guild are playing at the same table, the group gains a bonus action point to be used during the adventure. The action point is used just like a normal action point, although it does not count against the user's action point expenditure for the encounter. All effects that trigger off of action point use trigger off of the use of the bonus action point. The bonus action point can be spent by anyone at the table, but a majority of the group must agree on the expenditure. Once the action point is spent, it is gone for the remainder of the adventure. Your group can only have one bonus action point in this manner.2. Participate in special adventuring company challenges and events.So if you think your PC has what it takes to make in the City of Westgate, Gateway to the West, sign them up at games.groups.yahoo.com/group/lfrwagRegards,Carl RohwederModerator games.groups.yahoo.com/group/lfrwagCurrent Membership (as at 31/7/09)Elladan Telrunya, Half Elf Warlock (Feypact) 6 - [email]firstname.lastname@example.org[/email]Huble Bisongrass, Halfling Rogue 10 - [email]Taityzuma@yahoo.com.au[/email]Milo, Human Cleric 9 - [email]email@example.com[/email]Dread, Deva Avenger 5 - [email]firstname.lastname@example.org[/email]Emere of Westgate, Genasi Rogue 1 - [email]Shdwrnnr@aol.com[/email]
