Ironrock Delve. Most of this large walled castle is delved into the side of a mountain. The Lord of the castle, a dwarf named Thakar Ironrock, is part of a long line of Ironrock kings. In the depths of the mountain, Ironrock and its settlements encroach on the Underdark. For 52 years, dwarven axemen have defended the Delve against the ruthless and excessively tactical hobgoblins. King Thakar has kept the castle's courtyards filled with forge smoke during the long brutal war.
But the enemy has grown stronger in recent battles. The stout dwarves fight valiantly, but their territory is slipping through their bloody fingers.
As a last ditch effort, King Thakar Ironrock has hired mercenaries to bolster his forces and to attempt risky missions that could pay off.
You are one such group hired to fight for the dwarves. And you are being pressed into battle.
In this 5e game, you fight a war for the Underdark. All characters start at 1st level. No Unearthed Arcana or unofficial rules. Standard array or standard point buy. I'm looking for 3-5 players. The game will be collaborative in nature with world-building and story. Also, many of the dice-rolls and combat will be conflict-based with single rolls determining the outcome with agreed upon stakes.
