Male Half-Orc Verdant Sorcerer (1)

This is for OOC, please make a post with your finalized character in this thread, and any ooc questions or thoughts.


Couldn't find a grumpy retired slightly unhinged halfling doctor in the pictures. Maybe Rory will be an ophtalmologist then.


Also, Rory would probably be aiming for a Magister position in the kingdom. He would seek to reduce the influence of religion and divine magic on common people, and do what he can to draw all kinds of researchers to the Stolen Lands, perhaps even found a college.


sounds like a plan, hopefully others post soon.


Male Half-Orc Verdant Sorcerer (1)

flykiller and others please post soon :)


Well I'm still here, waiting for anyone to show up :\

we might go for a heavily modified, solo campaign :).

hopefully, the new choices will respond. sadly the boards do not have a messaging capacity.


Royston Hawkes, cleric of Erastil, reporting for duty.

Sorry about the delay, but I didn't realize I had been recruited in the second wave. I can change my guy around a bit once we know who is playing to fill any gaps.

Hopefully, everyone will check in from the new group. i've been looking through the AP, and there's only a few instances where the current selected group would be missing a helpful ability (trapfinding) but i have some ideas to take care of that.

One would be that survival and/or relevant knowledges, could apply.

for example, survival or knowledge nature would give a person some ability to spot a good location to put a trap.

what thinks you all?


Alternate skills could work. We also could have a few scrolls, or a barbarian who just always goes first.

There's all the option to take a one-level dip or it could be added to the inquisitor class. I mean, that classes gets most everything eventually. :)


There's no reason I couldn't switch my character from cleric to druid if it helps the game. We'll need to see if more people show up, but the extra skill points and options would probably be helpful to the group overall.


Human Musketeer 1

Here I am, thanks Varash. All the details about my character are in the profile page, and I'm more than willing to modify things if you want.

So, what's the situation? The original members haven't showed up?


You are the third to show up, out of 11 invited :) :(


Male Half-Orc Verdant Sorcerer (1)

Yes, and there has been a sudden explosion of new interest.

I now feel confident that we will be able to start by next wednesday, as i give people time to build and/or post.

For you three, you can be thinking about the following to help us start out.

You have applied and given a charter from the Sword Lords of Brevory to explore the Stolen Lands, mapping it out and removing obstacles for settlers (bandits, dangerous beasts, etc.)

As the AP starts, the party is just about to arrive at a trading post in the Stolen Lands, and has traveled about 2 days.

What do other characters notice about you in travel, personality traits, any history/background you might have shared?


I'll work on that tonight and try to get a full profile up. Do you want me to play the cleric or druid? Both worship the same god and have an animal companion, so there's little difference. I'll get to work once I get off work tonight.

go with whichever you find better, personally i'd think druid gives you a slightly more flexible character, in terms of skill points, but slightly less healing capability.

what kind of animal you going for?


At the moment, I'm thinking a big cat (lion, tiger, etc.). I could also see a big rhino or dino, since this critter and the group's fighter-type will be the front line of the party.

I think I'll stick with cleric given the likely group makeup. We'll probably be able to deal out a fair amount of damage but not too many high defenses. I'll have good heals, spell utility and the pet will offer extra damage and help the front line.


Male Human Cleric 1

Here's my cleric of Eranstil. He will pick up an animal companion at fourth level, but until then he can help hold the front line himself. He'll either go for a big cat for lots of attacks or something that hits very hard once and go for vital strike and such.

He has a longbow as favored weapon, and can wade into melee thanks to his strength and domains. He can even cast Enlarge Person on himself and someone else on the front line to really lay down the damage.

He's also got a decent amount of spells and positive channeling.


Male Human Wizard 2

Ok, here's my character, I think I covered everything, if I missed anything or you have any questions let me know.


Ok, here's the first IC post for Rory:

Spoiler:

As the cavalcade has stopped and set up camp, Rory has vanished in a nearby meadow for an hour. He returned with a bag full of herbs, flowers, pebbles, and differently-coloured dirt. Producing a small cauldron out of his saddlebags, he began brewing a strange concoction. The dizzying smell has spread across the camp, and it wasn't long before one of his companions, a cleric of some sort, started complaining that he's denying them their deserved rest after a full day on horseback.
"What are you talking about?" Rory spouted, genuinely surprised. "I can't feel anything." He puffed an acrid cloud from his smoking pipe right in the face of his vis-a-vis, who immediately had a coughing fit. "Your throat is sore, kid. You better take this here powder, will help you stay in shape until we reach the border. Put it in boiling water, leave for 5 minutes under moonlight and then drink in one go. Now, off you go, before I spoiled my dose of mutagen for tomorrow".

After the brewing was over, Rory, still smoking his ever-present pipe, came up to Gunther, who was busy cleaning and oiling his musket. "So, taking care of your baby, I see? Say, I think I asked you this already, but are you sure you don't have the recipe for that black powder of yours written anywhere? I mean, you're probably going to run out of it one day, and my guess is you could use a friendly chemist who can mix up some more for you. And I could definitely use some of that powder on that one peculiar elixir I'm working on. I've already tried the oxigenated sulphur, the brown nitrogenous gas, and the ammonia hydrate, but there seems to be some crucial property missing. I'm linking it to the evanescence of the phlogistonous substance, which I think your powder might just be able to alleviate."


Male Human Wizard 2

Someone's getting impatient, has the game started?


not officially, but i did give a lead in for people to think about above.


Male Human Paladin 1

So, as requested, I am posting here as Sir Eamon.

I look forward to starting the game in either group!

You can see one version of the character by clicking on the name above, and another by looking at his HeroLab character sheet


Male Human Wizard 2

Excellent! We have our Meatshield! Welcome to the party Sir Eamon.


Male Human Paladin 1

:-) Better look again! He's an archer.

But there was talk of enough PCs for two groups, so let's see how things fall out. If we wind up needing a meatshield, I'll change up.


Human Musketeer 1

IC:
Ever since his early adolescence, Gunther has been on the road, and some of his journeys lasted months, so a 2 day ride is something he's used too. In the last days he has been very impatient to reach their destination as soon as possible. The opportunity to reclaim the Stolen Lands on behalf of the Swordlords of Brevoy will finally secure their relationships with Gunther's family, so the young cavalier couldn't believe his luck when the charter was given to him. He feels the pressure on him, but he's determined not to disappoint.

At the camp, the boiling concotion draws his attention, but he loses a bit of interest when he realizes that it's not something to eat. He still has to grasp who exactly his new companions are, and if he can really trust them enough to found an entire reign with their help. He keeps a corteous and respectful attitude with them, but never lets his guard down. During his years as a ambassador and a proteges he saw countless power games and betrayals, so he knows that a man deserve trust only once his actions do.

I am afraid dat I don't hav a recipe vritten down, dear Sir, but I can shov that hov to prepare the powder if you wish he replies to Rory with his thick Ustalavian accent. Dis veapon is most definitely something you need to get used to, and I'm still in the process. But I don't think dat I can help you designing dat elixir of yours, for you see in my education and upbringing, alchemy vas not included.


Still waiting for Varash to approve my character concept.


Male Human Wizard 2

If you don't mind some advice Sir Eamon, I'd suggest you pull 3 points out of your dexterity and put them into your wisdom. That way you still have a dexterity of 14 and a wisdom of 13. Which will come in handy when your paladin starts gaining spells and give you a +1 to your Will save instead of a -1. Trust me that can be a VERY good thing to have.
Still when all is said and done this is only my opinion, it's your character you can do whatever you want with it.


Male Half-Orc Verdant Sorcerer (1)

everyone's char looks fine to me

Not a bad idea. -If- I stay an archer paladin, I'll pull the points from Strength instead.

But Paladins cast spells from Charisma, not Wisdom. Though an high Wis is certaily a good thing to have, it is not vital for a Paladin to cast spells. Halloran, I think you mixed things up with the Paladin class from D&D 3rd edition: in that edition he actually used Wis instead of Cha, but they changed it in Pathfinder.


Male Human Wizard 2

My mistake, looks like I got my editions mixed up. Carry on.


Male Human Cleric 1

OK, correct me if I'm wrong here. We have:

Two physical ranged characters: Gunslinger and Archer Paladin
One magic ranged/support character: Wizard
Two midline healer/support characters: Chirurgeon Alchemist with sling/bombs, Cleric with bow/mace

The paladin can cover our face needs, so we just lack trap finding and someone to hold the front line.

If needed, I can switch to druid again and help hold the front line with a pet. I also can build a barbarian or ranger to do much the same thing. Barbarian has a big hit die and bonuses against traps and both barbarian and ranger have skills that would fit this game well.

I can't build anything today since I'll be traveling. I'll be with family early Monday, but that night I can whip up something if needed. Lemme know.

Enod Gray, the Wizard ready for duty!

Why should be pigeonholing ourselves into party "roles"? Physical ranged, magic support... Look, my character's an ambassador, mostly a pacifist, and he has a musket. What role is that? I don't know/care, I just want to help building a new nation. What I'm saying is: play whatever you want to play the most, don't play a druid instead than a cleric just because we lack "frontline".


Male Human Cleric 1

I like to play characters; the statistics don't matter to me so much.


Male Human Paladin 1

Well, party roles may not be so important to figure out, but if we don't figure out combat roles, we'll be obliged to do so with our -next- characters after the TPK. Roleplaying is wonderful, but we need to survive to get to the next encounter.

I wonder if a trapfinder is so very important in an adventure said to be mostly wilderness. What worries me is our lack of a front-line warrior. More specifically, I'm concerned that my archer paladin will be obliged to ignore his strength as an archer and -be- the front line warrior.

Frankly, I'm okay with that, but I'll be a lot happier knowing that going in. I'll just make him a more traditional paladin with sword and shield or focusing on a greatsword.

Dedicated Voter 2013

@Eamon:
I'm not a rules expert, so sorry if what I'm going to say doesn't make sense, but I think you could try to make a "1-shot" archer, using the Quick Draw feat. This would allow you to start the combat with a ranged full attack (including Smites!), and if the enemies survive the initial barrage, drop the bow and switch to a 2hander as a free action. Or even to sword and shield if you have a shield with a quickdraw property. High dex is also useful to a sword and shield build.


Male Human Paladin 1

So what's our status, GM's? There was talk of starting by Wednesday?


Male Human Cleric 1

And do we know yet if this is one or two parties?


Male Half-Orc Verdant Sorcerer (1)

currently by my calculations we have

cleric, alchemist, paladin, cavalier, wizard.

i'm going to open a new recruitment to try and get a second group from people still wanting, and will put up the official IC thread tomorrow, and we'll get rolling, obviously Thanksgiving will be taking away from people's post times but we'll persevere :)


Male Human Wizard 2

Looks to be an interesting mix, let's see how the game turns out.

Two wizards, right? Enod and Halloran?

Hey, Enod: Do you have a specialization?

Who is the Cavalier? I'd like to discuss combat roles with him or her.


Human Musketeer 1

I'm the cavalier, musketeer archetype. I will usually try to avoid direct confrontation if possible. Other than that, I have a musket.


Male Human Paladin 1

We need a meat shield or neither of us is going to be able to get the range we need.


Male Human Wizard 2

You two will have to figure that out for yourself, I'm a "squishy" so I don't plan to be on the front line.


Male Human Wizard 1

Conjurer specialty : teleportation


Male Human Cleric 1

I'll work on barbarian stats tonight. No pet, but lots of HP. I'll keep a very similar backstory and location. He's likely to just have less patience and more likely to help defend against wild animals and bandits.

I've never made a barbarian before, so please feel free to offer suggestions. It seems Weapon Focus, Power Attack, Cleave, Dodge and Toughness would all be good feats. I know many like Superstition; if I change it means I wouldn't benefit too much from the wizard's buffs. If I just let him go before me, that should fix the problem. Otherwise, not too many people cast buffs every round.

How does that sound to everyone?


Male Human Wizard 2

I think we need a cleric more than a barbarian, if anyone should be stepping up to be are frontliner, it should be the paladin with the 16 STR who wields a greatsword.
But that's just my opinion.


Male Human Cleric 1

I've been looking over builds, and a barbarian won't be a help. The lack of armor means such a character would just require more healing since he'd take almost every hit.

So, I think I'll stick with the cleric with more of a focus on healing (since we'll have attackers in our midline).


i have IC thread started woot.

In Char Thread

let's just run with the current group and see where that goes.
