A storm over Tethyr

Game Master JohnLocke


151 to 200 of 382 << first < prev | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | next > last >>

I know a half-Orc cleric of Sune, and probably a crusader archtype


@ Critzible - That does sound interesting :-) I eagerly await the fruits of your creativity!


Thanks

Osirion

looks like theres a lot of rogues so ill drop my rogue idea but what do you think about...

Landon, Human Inquisitor of Helm:

Lawful Good, Human, Inquisitor 1

Defense:
AC 20, touch 12, flat-footed 18 (+5 armor, +3 Shield, +1 Dex, +1 Dodge)
hp 11 (1d8+3)
Fort +4, Ref +1, Will +4

Offense:
Speed: 30 ft. (25ft in armour)
Melee: Bastard Sword +3 (1d10+3/+4, 19-20/x2) (S)
Melee:
Ranged:

Statistics:
Str 15(17), Dex 13, Con 14, Int 10, Wis 14, Cha 14
Base Atk +0; CMB +3; CMD 14
Traits: ?,?
Feats: Shield Specialty (Heavy steel), Dodge
Skills: Diplomacy, Heal, Intimidate, Knowledge(Dungeoneering), Knowledge(nature), Knowledge(religion), Sense Motive, Survival

Landon is a child of Tethyr, born to a minor noble family as the third son and raised by the church. He tries to embody the ideal of Helm by using the skills he learned to hunt down an elimate threats outside of the cities as well as in thier streets.

I see him resembling a paladin in many ways and if chosen he may end up become a true paladin later in his career.

Attacks:

BAB: +0

Glaive 1d10+3(DEX3) (x3)

Feats/Abilities/Traits:

Feats:

1 - Weapon Finese

Abilities:

1 - Aura (Ex): A cleric of a chaotic, evil, good, or lawful deity
has a particularly powerful aura corresponding to the
deity’s alignment (see the detect evil spell for details).

1 - Spell-Like Ability: Feather Fall 1/day (caster level equals
the Sylph's level).

1 - Channel Energy

1 - Wind Blast (Su): As a standard action, you can unleash
a blast of air in a 30-foot line. Make a combat maneuver
check against each creature in the line, using your caster
level as your base attack bonus and your Wisdom modifier
in place of your Strength modifier. Treat the results as a
bull rush attempt. You can use this ability a number of
times per day equal to 3 + your Wisdom modifier.

Sylph Racial Benefits:

Native Outsider: Sylphs are outsiders with the native subtype.
Medium: Sylphs are Medium creatures and have no bonuses
or penalties due to their size.
Normal Speed: Sylphs have a base speed of 30 feet.
Darkvision: Sylphs can see in the dark up to 60 feet.
Weather Savvy: Some sylphs are so in tune with the
air and sky that they can sense the slightest change in
atmospheric conditions. Sylphs with this trait can spend a
full-round action to predict the weather in an area for the
next 24 hours. The sylph’s prediction is always accurate,
but cannot account for spells or supernatural effects that
might alter the forecast. This racial trait replaces the
sylph’s spell-like ability racial trait.
Like the Wind: A sylph with this racial trait gains a +5
foot bonus to her base speed. This racial trait replaces
energy resistance.
Breeze-Kissed: Breezes seem to follow most sylphs
wherever they go, but some sylphs are better able to
control these winds than others. A sylph with this racial
trait surrounds herself with swirling winds, gaining a +2
racial bonus to AC against nonmagical ranged attacks.
The sylph can calm or renew these winds as a swift action.
Once per day, the sylph can channel this wind into a
single gust, making a bull rush or trip combat maneuver
attempt against one creature within 30 feet. Whether or
not the attempt succeeds, the winds are exhausted and
no longer provide a bonus to the sylph’s AC for 24 hours.
This is a supernatural ability. This racial trait replaces
air affinity.

Traits:

Self-Sacrifice: As a move action, you can use your own body to grant soft cover to an adjacent ally regardless of the difference in your respective sizes.

Indomitable Faith: You gain a +1 trait bonus on Will saves.

Poison Use: At 1st level, a ninja is trained in the use of poison and cannot accidentally poison herself when applying poison to a weapon.
Sneak Attack: The ninja’s attacks deal extra damage anytime her target would be denied a Dexterity bonus to AC (whether the target actually has a Dexterity bonus or not), or when the ninja flanks her target. This extra damage is 1d6 at 1st level, and increases by 1d6 every two ninja levels thereafter. Bonus damage from sneak attacks is precision damage. Should the ninja score a critical hit with a sneak attack, this precision damage is not multiplied. Ranged attacks count as sneak attacks only if the target is within 30 feet.

Reading through the description of Tethyr that's been posted, I'm imagining that Dirk would generally do his best to keep his Elven heritage covered up. How recently were the Elves driven into the forest, and how long ago was the downfall of the royal family? I could imagine Dirk's rise to relative power (1st level power, haha) stemming from him taking advantage of the opportunity provided by political chaos, if it's been recent enough.

@ Belle Mythix: I've left a couple of your characters off the list, primarily because they incorporated design elements which don't match what I want in this game. Both of your rangers are fine, though :-)

@ garabbott - the Tethyr royal family fell just about 10 years ago. Elves have always been in the forest of Tethir and the forest of Mir. Their lot has actually improved with the death of the royal family, as the centralized power which was marginalizing them is now gone. Elves have always been viewed in a generally positive light by the people of Tethyr. And now, the Elves have formed their own power structures and taken control of certain areas of the country, in particular the very valuable trade way road, running from Mosstone to Trademeet, via the Tethir forest. At this point, the elves (a mix of forest, moon and golf subraces) do little more than shadow the convoys passing through. Who knows if that may change, some day soon?


Do the golf elfs run the golf courses in the area? That's a lucrative business. And they get a bonus to hit with a golfclub.

(Sorry, couldn't resist.)


Ugh. Okay, that's gold elves, not golf :-(


I know, I was just humorizing a typo. I do it occasionally. Not meant to be insulting or derisive.


Currently at work working on my 1/2 org cleric of Sune Oda Firekissed


Oh I know, it's just kinda funny, since I should check my posts more closely before posting. At least the built-in spellcheck was doing its job, right?


Critzible, I just feel the need to let you know that the church of Sune, while generally good and altruistic, is REALLY hung up on human beauty. A member of any other race (especially half orcs, not known for their loveliness) isn't really welcome in that church, except perhaps for half elves, and even then the elven church of beauty (Hanali Celanil) might have competed for her.

As an alternate option, a half-orc cleric who isn't scary and uggers could belong to the church of Sharess (passion and hedonism) or perhaps Selune or Tymora?

Let me know what you think.


Sune is caught up on both human and fey beauty. Sigh. I once had a centaur cleric of Sune. Mentally, I think it was Fabio on a horse body. Only dark brown hair.

Sune is very specifically the Goddess of human beauty. Verenestra is the Goddess of fey beauty. :-) Thanks for the input, though!


Ah.... I had it wrong, then. Oh well, the DM didn't say anything. Centaurs are monstrous humanoids anyway, not fey. Although mine did get along quite well with the fey. :P


sounds like a delightful problem. Make a Fey warrior, that has ranks in bluff that tries to convince everyone she is the only fey accepted by Sune, all the while trying to earn acceptance from her though some kind of quest.

DM Not sure the druid really fills a potential need. Or maybe I just have not gotten excited about it. Still thinking on it. But I really am liking both Rameth (Bard) and Hezar (Ranger) atm.


@ Arazni - In my campaign, your former character would likely be the centaur of controversy in the church of Sune :-)

@ Vuvu - no worries, both your current submissions are quite compelling!


True.... I was also thinking Torm....I know about Sune and her ideals of beauty, and she has had non human worshippers. I do forget how vain she is too perfering physical beauty over inner beauty


That's it. All the characters that do not get accepted will be starting the

OCCUPY SUNE Movement


Torm's faith would be MUCH more accepting.

@ Vuvu: arrgh. The Sune I forget you said that, the better :-)


I think he might have liked the attention. (He had a Charisma of 20 as a starting character.)

Ah, I had noticed we were missing a class from the list of applicants, so against my better judgement (as I really like Davina for this campaign), here is Calaral Limtaras, elf treesinger druid.

You Anti-Sunites are so predictable. There's nothing wrong with the Church of Eye-Candy.

@ Belle Mythix: I've left a couple of your characters off the list, primarily because they incorporated design elements which don't match what I want in this game. Both of your rangers are fine, though :-)

Would the Oracle of Nature fits if it wasn't for the silly Young Template?


I would of done an orc dirty if they weren't. All evil and if Gruumsh was more like he dose for Obould in the north for the kingdom of many arrows... But alas I might be shackled with Torm, or try me the Gaint dirty of love and beauty.. She's neutral I think


Though I might make an orc scarred witch instead


Honestly every time I check into this thread there's another three characters. XD As much as I want to play this game, I don't think I could make a character to fill a role that hasn't been filled already, could I?

I think I'll stick with just Anon. It's a big risk to not get into what sounds like a fun game, but it's a character I'd really like to play.

@ garabbott - the Tethyr royal family fell just about 10 years ago. Elves have always been in the forest of Tethir and the forest of Mir. Their lot has actually improved with the death of the royal family, as the centralized power which was marginalizing them is now gone. Elves have always been viewed in a generally positive light by the people of Tethyr. And now,...

Hm..... six characters, i like my chances ;) .ps you missed my human wizard, its cool :)


Apologies, Ebonnard, I'll make sure to add him next time the list is updated.

@ Belle - sure, remove the template and you've pretty much got the character gtg, save for a few small details

@ Marko - as you wish :-)

@ JMG021283 - thanks for the submission! Halflings are quite well represented here, which is fair - they do account for almost 20% of Tethyr's population!

Here's some info on the fourth in our big cities of Tethyr series - Ithmong!

Ithmong is one of the major powers in the new order of Tethyr. Its central location gives it many advantages over the Saradush and the coastal cities of Zazesspur and Myratma. Another reason Ithmong is on the rise is the appearance of a new, powerful leader ready to expand his influence throughout Tethyr.

Ithmong controls all east-west travel through Tethyr. The Ithal Road and the River Ith cross at this large (population:220,000) city. The river is a wide, strong one, and the only crossing for hundreds of miles in either direction is the Ithal Bridge in the middle of town. In addition to controlling the overland traffic, Ithmong has enough river patrols and troops on the bridge to also control river traffic. In the past two years, the city has begun charging small tolls to all traffic
passing through. The tolls are not large enough for the travelers to complain, but given the volume of traffic, a substantial boon to Ithmong's coffers.

Ithmong's location in the center of Tethyr's main agricultural region is another source of power. Grain and livestock are produced in great quantity throughout the region, and the city controls these valuable food shipments to all the other major cities of the country; while Ithmong has never used this power to blackmail these other cities, the possibility is always there.

The factors listed above have been true about Ithmong for decades, but this city's rise to power is a fairly recent phenomenon. The difference is the son of a blacksmith named Ernest Gallowglass. With the enthusiastic support of the populace, Gallowglass has begun a plan to put Ithmong, previously dismissed as an unsophisticated farm-and crossroads type of city, on the map as the focal point of a new Tethyr; a new Tethyr ruled by Gallowglass.

Gallowglass took over the Ithmong Town Council 3½ years ago, using a combination of fierce loyalty and generosity to his supporters and ruthlessness to his opponents to solidify his control in the next year. Gallowglass is very intelligent, and a consummate politician; he makes sure that the people of Ithmong see a direct benefit from any of his ideas, and this guarantees their support. For example, when he wanted to start charging tolls on the Ithal Bridge (defying over 80 years of tradition), Gallowglass designated 25% of the tolls to go directly to civic improvements, such as new roads, more water wells in the poor part of town, and stronger town defense. The townspeople went along cheerfully.

Gallowglass has begun flexing Ithmong's economic muscles to get the attention of the other major powers of Tethyr. Grain and livestock shipments to Zazesspur and Myratma are delayed unless additional payments to inspectors are made; imports from those cities and Saradush are refused entrance without the "proper permits." This is not a total embargo; only a few shipments each month get this treatment .. for now. But it could get much worse, and that's the message Gallowglass wants the other cities to get. They are paying more for Ithmong goods, and can't recoup the money losses with their own exports.

There is talk in Ithmong that the other major cities of Tethyr are raising an army to march on the city and put an end to these economic actions. There is no truth to this at all; in fact, it is a rumor started by Gallowglass. If the people believe an attack is imminent, it will make the next phase of his plan easier: the military conquest of Tethyr. While details are uncertain, it is rumoured that Gallowglass has already begun gathering forces needed for this military action to him, and that he may be reaching out to other, less savoury forces as well to further his ends.


Locke:
I know you appreciate involvement. So you know I am traveling for a large portion of this afternoon and evening and will be gone. Though back tomorrow. I am also traveling overseas on Saturday. I will probably get a post/look at the thread around 6pm Eastern time, but then will be MIA for a LONG time. Will try to post from my layover country if I can...and I guess at that point am selected. Just a heads up.


@ Vuvu:

Spoiler:
Thanks for letting me know! Hope you have a good and safe trip :-)

Andoran

wow, quite a daunting prospect of a campaign here, and a bewildering list of submissions so far. I do notice a distinct lack of some classes, though. so for initial off-the-cuff reactionary ideas, here's a few. let me know if any would be welcome, otherwise, I'll cook up something else.

undine druid--terrain control, lots of water getting tossed around, heals, etc. support character.

catfolk rogue--uses claws, lots of stealing stuff and heavy sneak attacks, DPS/scout/skillmonkey.

human fighter--specs in polearms, ridiculous attacks of opportunity later.

changeling witch--wild card, big bag o' tricks, heals, control, crafting, tricky stuff.

half-dragon barbarian--EXTREME unarmed melee force and smashing power (if templates are allowed. didn't explicitly see you say starting 1st level, so throwing it in here, just in case.)

human sorcerer--arcane bloodline, spell list rivalling a wizard, god knows WHAT he'll be able to do.

dwarven cleric--tough as stone, makes his party more so, stands at the front while still throwing out heals and buffs.

I have more in stock, and can make up characters in reasonable amounts of time, let me know if any of those strike your fancy and I'll get em written up.

EDIT: I'm also flexible and open to new ideas and classes, so if the DM feels anything in particular would be good for the game or interesting, throw me a suggestion and I'll see if I can rise to the challenge.

Not the DM but; No template (tried it 2 or 3 time) and I'm not sure Catfolk would fit.

Osirion

DM Locke I've been rereading your posts and I see Landon (my inquisitor application) being part of the new side of Helm's church in Tethyr , especially the part about making the wilderness safer for everyone.

I do have one question for an alternate application though. Are there any knightly orders present in Tethyr, I couldn't find anything on the interwebs about a local order. I had an idea for a cavalier(a kensai samurai actually) and was hoping to build him around a local order though.


Belle you are insatiable


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber

DM Locke:

After consideration and watching over the thread develop over the last few days, I am going to respectfully withdraw my submission from consideration.

I wish the rest of you good luck and fine adventuring.


A few notes before bed:

@ Mark Sweetman - I'm genuinely saddened that you're withdrawing, but I appreciate you letting me know. Good luck and have fun!

@ Daynen - I wouldn't mind seeing the human sorcerer and the dwarven cleric, if you're still game :-)

@ Aiunder - there are many knightly orders represented in Tethyr - I'll post a list of orders in the morning, if that's okay. Most are religious in nature; there's very few secular orders around.

Just as a note to all, while I had originally planned to keep recruitment open until November 11th, I've decided that tomorrow will be the closing day. The cut-off time will be 8 PM EST. I expect decisions will be made on friday and players notified via PM. I'll open the discussion thread after that and any players wishing to answer my invitation can gather there to begin work on fleshing out their characters backstories and stats. Play should begin sometime early next week, barring any unforeseen events.

Thanks to all who have applied, and to any still on the fence, please remember that tomorrow is the new deadline. Good night all!


I will try to not post silly ideas like a Tiny Fey living in a treasure chest.


Good to know Locke consider my breath oh so baited

EDIT: last questions Locke

How far do you foresee this campaign going? I am thinking level wise that is. Not a huge thing, but as I begin to think ahead with Rameth and Hezar, I am curious. Also how sandboxish do you see this? Will it be more like an AP or ok guys your in the pub whatta ya want to do?

Andoran

Right-o, so we got a blaster with a huge spell selection, or a mega-party healy-bruisy-buffer. Gonna have to crunch some stuff up, just lemme know if the needs of the party swing one way or another.

Originally from a powerful tribe formed from former Calishite slave orcs, he was raised to become shaman from brith. He was born with a cloudly right eye so the priest dug it out. at 8 he became an apprentice and at 12 began to cast orisions. at 13 his tribe was busted up by an arm of the knights of the Golden Lion, and Helmites. the Tormite Knights took him as he choose to surrendered and seeing him and his divine skills took him back to a local Church of Torm. there he took to his new faith and quickly became a nes man. He took the name Olef after a groundskeeper he had know in the temple, and was giving Whiterose by his superior cleric. On his 18th brithday, after completing his rights as a devotee of the Loyal Fury, he heard of the troubles of his adoptive home and made an Oath to Heal Tethyr and its people and help usher in a new age or die trying. he set out with his weapons and meger belongings to save his Homeland from Tyrants and the wilds them selves.


Aaaaaallrighty then! Presenting...the charming, the witty, the wise, the connected, the talented....INNKEEPER VARGAS!

...What. Don't give me that look.

Here's that human "wizard" you wanted to see, with all his "spellbooks" and such. (Don't tell anybody, but he's really a sorcerer. Everyone wonders how he can keep an inn clean and running with so little help. Ain't magic awesome?)

In this campaign, I will make it my personal mission to NEVER RUN OUT OF SPELLS. Or at the very least, always have the right spell on hand. starting the game with nine different cantrips is pretty awesome to begin with, and its only gonna get better. Besides, I can even be the guy that hears about the quests and rents out the rooms and drinks! Ale not cold? Ray of frost! Need a fire to cook? Spark! Counter's dirty? Prestidigitation! fire get outta control? Drench! stubbing your toe in the dark? dancing lights! drunkard passed out? floating disk and he's in bed safe and sound! And don't worry about thieves sneaking in, I'll (Keep watch, 1st-level) all night! And that's all at first level! LOL! Gotta lemme in, coach. I'll have all sorts of fun with this guy.


i like him.

do you know about alchemical focuses for acid splash and ray of frost? hold an liquid ice or acid flask respectively and you get a bonus to damage
