Teil der Abenteuer in Myra Hausregeln für das Fantasy-Rollenspiel AD&D (Siehe die gesamte MYRApedia)

Für Gwynddor, Kiombael und Traumritter (D&D 5e) gibt es eine eigene Seite. Diese Seite dagegen widmet sich den Hausregeln für AD&D 2nd Edition, die auf Karcanon gelten.

(Behandle den Schwert-Zweig der Traumritter als Paladin-Kit im Sinne von Kapitel 4 des "Complete Paladin's Handbook" wenn du AD&D 2nd Edition spielst. Stand Januar 2020 ist diese Regel noch in Bearbeitung und kann sich im Spielverlauf noch ändern. Sie ist gedacht für offizielle Abenteuer in Myra (AiM) im Bereich von Iridistra.

Nehmt euch die Freiheit, diese Charakterklasse auch in euren eigenen Gruppen und Kampagnen zu testen und gebt bitte Feedback zu euren Erfahrungen.

Beschreibung[]

Traumritter (vgl. Traumritter in der MyraPedia) sind der älteste bekannte Orden von Rittern in der Welt Myra (einst genannt "Alptraumritter" - Alpträume bekämpfend - siehe Bild rechts) und besonders trainiert mit Schwert und Magie um gegen Dämonen und dämonische Wesen zu kämpfen, und die Alpträume die sie erzeugen.

Für einen langen deutschen Hintergrundtext siehe Traumritter in der MyraPedia.

  • Rassen: Menschen, Elfen, Halb-Elfen, Aegyr
  • Gesinnung: Gut sollte es sein. Die Mehrheit wird Ordnung dem Chaos vorziehen, aber das ist keine Voraussetzung.

Die Karcanon-Kampagne[]

Die Kampagne auf Karcanon (MyraPedia Beschreibung) (AD&D2 vor Ort in Tübingen und via Voicechat auf Discord) spielt schwerpunktmässig am Grünen Meer, nahe der Kaiserstadt Chalkis, rund um die Traumritter-Burg [[Sternenfall bei der Stadt Iridistra. Unweit davon beginnt der Höhenzug namens Monsterhügel, eine Grenzregion wo der Kampf Licht gegen Finsternis gekämpft wird. Und im Ophis des [[Grünen Meeres liegt die Grosse Ebene, wo seit vielen Jahren Heere aus Menschenreichen gegen Dämonen kämpfen. Menschen sind am Grünen Meer der Normalfall, Elfen sind um Chalkis nicht selten - mehrere andere Spielerrassen sind möglich, es kann aber leicht sein dass du auf hundert Meilen das einzige Mitglied deiner Rasse bist was je jemand hier gesehen hat. (Mit allen daraus resultierenden Reaktionen).

Mindestwerte für Schwert und Magie[]

Würfelt Eure Werte nach dieser Regel aus oder verteilt 80 Punkte auf die 7 Werte (Glück als 7. Wert). Die Mindestwerte für den Paladin gelten für Traumritter erst ab Level 5 und höher. Wer nicht alle Anforderungen erfüllt kann 1 Level weniger als 5 pro fehlendem Punkt erreichen. Wer noch nicht Level 1 erreichen kann, weil mehr als 4 Punkte zu den Mindestwerten fehlen, wird im 0. Rang als "Aspirant" aufgenommen, erhält aber solange keine Gaben göttlicher Patrone. (Für die Kiombael und die Gwynddor-Kampagnen heisst das: Bitte nochmal würfeln oder irgendwo Werte ausgleichen, weil da alle als Novizen anfangen sollen.)

Novizen[]

Novizen im Orden der Traumritter brauchen

  • Entweder STR 12 für den Schwert-Zweig ODER INT 12 für den Magie-Zweig der Traumritter, der vor allem jenen offen steht die mit einem früheren Level aus einer Magie-nutzenden Charakterklasse zum Traumritter wechseln. Achtung: Wer Multiklassen-Aufstieg will braucht 13 in beidem!
  • CON 9
  • WIS 13
  • CHA 17

Mindestwert 6 für alle anderen Werte heisst mindestens 65 Mindestpunkte. Für Level 1, zum Beispiel, STR 6, INT 12, CON 9, WIS 13, CHA 13, Glück 6 würde reichen - für die Eulen, den Magie-orientierten Zweig der Traumritter.

Aspiranten[]

Wenn dir 5 oder mehr Punkte fehlen, wirst du vielleicht in den Orden aufgenommen, aber bekommst noch keine der damit verbundenen Fähigkeiten oder Göttergaben, und deine Erfahrungspunkte zählen noch nicht auf die Traumritter-Level. Stattdessen steigst du in deiner ursprünglichen Klasse, oder falls du keine ursprüngliche Klasse hattest als einfacher Kämpfer auf. Diese Mitglieder des Ordens werden Aspiranten genannt und ihre Levelstiege innerhalb des Ordens werden auch notiert: Nach 8 Aufstiegen innerhalb des Ordens als Aspirant, bekommst du auch einen Traumritter-Ring, der Dir die Fähigkeit zu Traumreisen gibt (siehe Gaben der Parana, weiter unten) und die Möglichkeit von da an Patrone anzunehmen wie die Novizen.

Sollwerte für den "Abenteurergilde"/Aspiranten Zweig des Ordens (nicht verfügbar in der Kiombael-Kampagne) sind die Mindestwerte

  • STR, INT, CON, WIS, CHA mindestens auf 9, mit mindestens einem Hauptwert deiner (bisherigen/derzeitigen) Charakterklasse auf 17.

Diener des Lichts[]

Traumritter dienen anders als normale Paladine nicht einer einzelnen spezifischen Gottheit sondern dem Prinzip des Lichts selbst. Die organisierte Religion, hohe Priester der philosophischen Idee des EInen Gottes der die Welt und die Gottheiten Myras geschaffen hat, der AEne Religion, dienen stets als Vorgesetzte für Traumritter und können jederzeit Gehorsam verlangen. (Zum Glück werdet ihr in vielen Weltgegenden, ausserhalb von Traumritter-Ländern, kaum welchen begegnen.)

Traumritter Regierungen als Vorgesetzte: Es gibt über die Welt Myra verteilt ein paar wenige Länder und Reiche wo Traumritter regieren und/oder die einen Kreis von Traumrittern in ihrer Mitte haben. Diesen Regierungen und ihren Vertretern zu gehorchen ist auch eines der Gebote des Ordens. Diese Regierungen werden vom Hoheritter des Ordens für diesen Kontinent regiert, der selbst nur dem Meisterritter des Ordens auf dem Inselkontinent Kaurias Gefolgschaft schuldet. Anweisungen eines Vertreters einer solchen Regierung sind wie die eines Vorgesetzten zu behandeln, da sie letztlich von einem Hoheritter kommen.

Bevor ein Traumritter eine der Gaben der Götter erhält und nutzen kann, also von einem von ihm gewählten Patron aus den Alten Göttern des Pantheons erwählt wird, muss er eine Heldentat für einen Tempel der Gottheit leisten oder zu einem der Grossen Tempel der Gottheit pilgern. Nach der Wahl eines Patrons ist ein Traumritter einem Priester dieses Patrons, wenn dieser ein höheres Level als der Traumritter hat, Gehorsam schuldig, da auch diese dann regeltechnisch als Vorgesetzte gelten. Widersprüchliche Anordnungen von hohen Priestern mehrerer Patrone können eine ziemliche Einschränkung der Handlungsfreiheit werden oder kreative Lösungen erfordern.

Rolle[]

Auf Reisen für Abenteuer, wenn sie nicht von einem Vorgesetzten auf Mission gesendet oder auf eine Traumreise gerufen werden, werden jeder Gruppe von Abenteurern helfen, die die vermutlich gegen Dämonen, dämonische Magie oder dergleichen geht.

Symbol[]

Mit Schwert & Magie - das Symbol der Traumritter ist ein Schwert und ein Zauberstab gekreuzt. Der Sigelring mit diesem Symbol wird Traumrittern ab dem 6. Grad verliehen und kann einer Gruppe als Ausweis auf einer längeren Mission mitgegeben werden. Traumritter in der typischen vollen Plattenrüstung mit dem tiefroten Federbusch auf dem Helm werden vermutlich auch ohne weitere Symbole erkannt.

Weitere Fertigkeiten[]

Waffenfertigkeiten[]

Alle Traumritter müssen bei Aufnahme in den Orden das Langschwert entweder schon beherrschen oder gleich als Novizen den Umgang damit lernen, unabhängig davon ob sie vor allem mit Schwert oder Magie kämpfen wollen oder was ansonsten ihre bevorzugte Waffe wäre. (Für die Eulen wären Dolch und Waffenloser Kampf geeignete weitere Kampffertigkeiten.)

Nichtwaffen Fertigkertigkeiten[]

Allle Traumritter müssen Zauberkunde entweder gelernt haben oder mit dem Lernen beginnen sobald sie in den Orden aufgenommen wurden. , bevor sie in den Genuss der göttlichen Gaben eines göttlichen Patrons kommen, wofür sie ein Verständnis der Zauberkunde ebenso brauchen wie ein Mindestmaß an Weisheit und Charisma. Traumritter können Nichtwaffen-Fertigkeiten aus der Allgemeinen, Kämpfer, Magier oder Priesterklasse lernen als ob das ihre Klasse wäre.

Rüstung/Ausrüstung[]

My073.jpg

Alle Traumritter die über die Mittel dazu verfügen werden eine volle Plattenrüstung haben (aber nicht immer tragen). Mit dem typischen tiefroten Federbusch auf dem Helm, einem Langschwert und dem typisch geformten Schild werden sie leicht erkannt, was an vielen Orten Fragen erspart. Um von einem Ort zum anderen zu kommen werden Traumritter meist ein Reittier haben, in der Regel ein Pferd.

Alle Traumritter im Level 9 oder höher haben ihren Siegelring - mit der Ausnahme der seltenen Fälle, wo sie diesen weggegeben haben um eine sichere Herbeirufung im Traumzustand zu ermöglichen.

Besonderes Reittier[]

Ein besonderes, verbundenes Reittier, wie es Paladine in höheren Leveln haben können, kann ein Bonus eines Traumritters sein, dem es gelingt, Artan, den Reitergott, als seinen Patron zu gewinnen. Voraussetzung ist, wo Nichtwaffenfertigkeiten Teil des Spiels sind, "Reiten" als Fertigkeit. (Fertigkeit Landforbewegungsmittel 'Pferd') In aller Regel wird es sich dabei um ein Streitross handeln. Da Artan verlangt, dass Traumritter klar auf der Seite der Ordnung stehen, werden manche, Anhänger eher freiheitsorientierter Patrone, diesen Vorteil auf später verschieben wollen.

Spezielle "Gebundene Reittiere" sind möglich. Die geringen Chancen erhöhen sich wenn man die richtigen Patronats-Gottheiten kombiniert und ausser dem Reiten auch die Fortbewegung in der Luft als Nichtwaffenfertigkeit beherrscht:

  • Riesenadler braucht Artan and Dondra
  • RiesenTiger braucht Artan and Pura
  • RiesenEule braucht Artan and Seeker
  • Einhorn braucht Artan and Jaffna
  • Drachen braucht Artan and Chnum and Thagoth

Es gibt keine Garantie, dass du ein legendäres Reittier das du dir wünschst auch bekommen wirst - es ist schliesslich eine Gabe der Götter, nicht ein Recht aus einem Handel das du einfordern kannst. Ein Charisma von 17 ist nötig für den Umgang mit einem gebundenen Streitross, ein Charisma von 18+ für den Umgang mit einem speziellen Gebundenen Reittier.

Göttliche Gaben[]

After learning the use of a longsword and about the use of magic (Spellcraft), Dreamknights, who have none of the automatic benefits of regular paladins, can go and choose one patron deity per level, which can grant one favour or ability as a special benefit each, up to a maximum number of deities equivalent to the one highest score in a Paladin's minimum requirements; often this will be Charisma.

In order to gain one of the deities of light as a patron, a Dreamknight must perform a greater service for a small temple or higher priest - a Geas Quest - or make a Pilgrimage to one of the high temples - of that religion. If a Dreamknight novice has been a priest, druid, or paladin of one of these deities before becoming a Dreamknight, the novice can choose to automatically get this deity as the first patron without having to do a quest.

Karcanon-campaign: Around the Green Sea, in Imperial Chalkis, Chnum and Dondra are the only large temples easily reachable. Depending on where you come from, you can start with another deity as your first patron, which has a High Temple in your home country. Each patron deity may bestow one special benefit and one special hindrance - some of them might seem mutually exclusive. Some patron deities will give you an extra bonus if you pick them as your first patron. Picking your first patron might be as important a decision as picking your character class in other campaigns. Your race and population of origin will limit your choice of first patron.

Patron deities by country and race of origin (Karcanon campaign):[]

Standard roleplay will be with characters from the continent Karcanon and as it starts on the shores of the Green Sea ("Grünes Meer") in the heartland of the Empire of Karcanon ("Kaiserreich Karcanon" under Emporer Bofri), most characters will come from one of the populations of one of the member countries:

  • Taron don Umn - Elves (far away, but with a large population in the imperial city of Chalkis - Patron will be Chnum
  • Antharlan - Humans with ancient greek culture - Patron will be probably Chnum or Dondra, exceptions of some kinds are possible but without the support of a large temple, which makes the exceptions exceptionally hard to play. In short: you will be *allowed* to play a character with a different religious preference from this dominant regional culture, but it will be no fun.
  • Silur - Humans - Patron will be Dena, except if your social status is over 60, then Chnum
  • Gorgonya - Humans with western european medieval culture - Patron will be Chnum
  • Am'y Syrren - Human female Amazons, while not belonging to the Empire, they are close allies, through their former queen, who was a consort and companion of the emporer until his marriage - No large temple support, small temple of Kandy, Seeker, Jaffna, Dena, and a few others.
  • Borgon Dyl - Black skinned human race with fair-skinned slaves and claims to a deity as their ancestors - deity Borgon (males) or Keiiris/Dena (females), or Norytton (for the black-skinned islanders from Orgareena) or Chnum, for the fair-skinned folk of the border provinces.
  • Thumgal - Fair-skinned human pirates and rangers - Not formally a part of the Empire, but close in region. State religions are Dondra and Chnum.
  • Karanadoor - Humans, mostly fair-skinned soldiers of fortune - Not formally a part of the Empire, but the Emporer is know to employ the mercenaries from here regularly. Dondra and Artan (as Gondur).

Patron deities by country of origin (Getting started in the Kiomba campaign):[]

Kiomba's main land consists of three countries. Predominant is the belief that there is one God (with a capital G) only, called AEne, who created the first While you can start with about any patron deity from the list below (in its mainstream form), getting a new patron after that is not as easy as just walking up to the next High Priest's temple (except if your second choice is Dondra or Chnum-Aro), so choose your first patron well.

  • Harpland offers a religious background of Kandy - if the hunter goddess of amazons is your thing, and falcons your favourite bird, Harpland will be your homeland.
  • Mallrowija is ruled by the druids of the eagle, who follow Dondra, the god of weather and wind, the war-like patron of freedom, of druids in nature and of jolly pirates elsewhere in the world. If Dondra is your thing, Mallrowija will be your homeland.
  • Aldodwereiya is about the one God - worhipping the light, manifest in the sun of light, Aro, and the Golden Dragon of Chnum (so if you worship Chnum, this is definitely your homeland). If Artan is supposed to be your starting point, you're home is the duchy Metharia in this country, if you're about the circle of life and death and this idea of the patron Anur, your duchy is Ysanta.

All other characters - and followers of all other patrons in the Kiomba campaign - will simply start as being born and raised in and about Arki, the capital of Aldodwereiya on the river Forseti, where the campaign starts, getting their patron the following way:

"'As you march into the great Pyramid of Light in Arki, which has been thirty years in the making, albeit disrupted during the time of fog and wanderings, you fell awed by the large room that is encircled with statues and pictures of all the patrons of Dreamknights anywhere in the world, all the 20 deities and the 21st as the idea of one light if you combine them all, as 21 is the number of the world. You have known this for a long time, but this time it is up to you to choose a patron - or be chosen. You know this decision is once in a lifetime - this room will not give you a second choice and from what you know it will never give you another patron, and you will have to go out into the world to find another patron as a dreamknight. This is your once in a lifetime choice, you are told by the wizened old man with his grey beard, who leads you around after you have decided to join the order. You will spend one night here, alone, with or without dreams of your own. And after this night, you will emerge as a dreamknight, with the one patron that starts your carreer, as a sibling of all who have chosen the same.'"
―Starting as Dreamknight



Religions and their benefits by deity Part 1[]

Listed below are permanent favours - as permanent as the Dreamknight stays within the favour of the patron deity (loose grace, loose, the bonus, atonement possible as per rules). Dreamknights can call upon their patrons for temporal graces (fitting their aspects) IF (and only if) it is for the benefit of the order and/or religion, not for personal benefit, but even then those are extremely rarely granted.

  • Norytton will give you an added +1 on a stat of your choice (up to a maximum of 18 for humans), if you are lacking full dreamknight stats in some way, it will always go there with a maximum of +2 to a lacking stat.

Göttliche Gebote[]

  • Anur will ask you to bury all dead and burn all undead after any fight, and fight any undead you can find.
  • Artan will demand you to be completely lawful, so your alignment needs to be LG from the moment you take him as a patron deity.
  • Borgon will demand you to (1) fight and if possible kill any werewolf on sight (2) attack and destroy to rubble any temple of Pottundy or Marlilith (3) instigate and join any war on lawful evil governments
  • Chnum will demand you to donate 1/5 of all you earn, find or otherwise get to him, in any of his temples. If there is none within reach, he expects you to found and fund one. This is regardless of what you give to other religions, your king&country or a charity of your choice.
  • Dena will demand you to stop lying. You can sidestep the truth if necessary, but you can not tell any outright lie.
  • Dondra will demand you to free any slaves you see. If by force or by buying and then freeing them is none of his concern.
  • Horcan will demand that will he brings the souls of fallen comrades to the doors of death, you bring the body home for proper burial. Depending on your level of piety and diligence this can meand just bringing the bodies of fallen Dreamknights back to the fortress of dreamknights - or preserving the bodies of Dreamknights and henchmen who fell fighting on your side to bring them to their ancestral home.
  • Kandy will demand you to not amass a fortune. You can only keep modest sustainable means for yourself and have to donate the rest to your good religion temples.
  • Jaffna will demand you to keep your purity and keep sexual abstinence if you are single or keep love and its practice inside your relationship if you are married. Mendoria means you can ever only have one single love in your life. Wait for that.
  • Pura will demand you to help all those less lucky than you and give them money if you have any, to loose at luck-based games if you play them at all, and to assist any midwife who asks you for help.
  • Seeker will usually only take you if you have been a Magic User before and/or pick him as a first patron, in order to become one. He will favour those at least, even if he might accept others who have successfully fought their first demon. Seeker will demand you to learn Spellcraft (Knowledge of the arcana), History (Knowledge of history), Religion (Knowledge of religions) and Knowledge of the Planes after you have him as a patron, in that order, disregarding any other skills, as soon as you have the skill points to do so.
  • Thagoth will demand you to keep no more than a maximum of ten magic or holy items (up to a bonus of +10 on your equipment, that would also put the limit on one +1 and three +3 or on two +5 items).
  • Zamnait will demand you to (1) learn Spellcraft as a skill before he accepts to be your (not first) patron (gives it to you if he is your first, regardless of skill points) and (2) heal all humans after a fight, regardless of which side they were fighting on. As all Dreamknights are required to learn spellcraft anyway, in order to understand the magic of demons, most start with Zamnait as a patron deity, if they have the choice.
  • Parana will demand you to kill no humans and the like on purpose and to show (and get your group to show) mercy against all humans, demihumans and humanoids whenever possible. Your healing shall be applied to all humans and demihumans. As this seems impossible within the normal adventuring experience of Dreamknights who are still far from challenging demons to duels, most Dreamknights skip this patron deity until they are in the highest levels.

Multiclassing as a Dreamknight:[]

Specific Patrons allow certain multiclassing, which you can opt for, if you pick this as your first patron deity. Experience is halved, you advance automatically to a secondary class level one level below your level as dreamknight:

    • "Owls" with patron deity Seeker: Dreamknight-Wizards
    • "Bears" with patron deity Dondra: Dreamknight Druids
    • "Doves" with patron deity Parana: Dreamknight Priests for Healing
    • "Fauns" with Patron deity Orphal: Dreamknight Bards
