D&D 3e: Gray

Godric Brightshield was one of the most effective adventurers we’ve ever had. He defeated witch kings, dragons. Hell, he toppled kingdoms. Yeah. He was truly gifted.

Why was he retired?

He got old.

But now he’s back?

Him and his whole party. Some moron decided that he was a threat to imperial security. Now they’re coming for us.

I’m not worried. We’ll defend the emperor.

What level are you? 13? Yeah, you’re badass vs. the locals. These guys are into the epics.

But you said they were aging…

And let’s really hope that penalty makes a big enough difference in effectiveness… or we’re all dead.
