Working on an Elan Psion.


Elan Psion is fine. any specific human ethnicity you resemble?

RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16

I'm working on a vishkanya snake style monk. I've never played a sandbox game before, so I'm pretty interested with seeing how things'll unfold...!

got at least a rough draft for your build?

or a reason for why you are in a Chelexian prison?

the minimum i am looking at is attributes, feats, skills, traits and powers.


Ooh sounds exciting. Human ranger would be my class, will have crunch soon


Recruitment lasts till Wednesday to Friday, depending on the number of submissions. i also need 2 CO DMs to assist me with things.


I'll try to get something up. I'm new to pathfinder so it may take me too long to work up the character. I'll give it a try though.

Thinking Bard, maybe half elf (I assume that's an allowable race?)

Why is he in jail? Seduced the judge's daughter. You know how those Bards are...

Shadow Lodge

I would like to apply to co-DM. I'm afraid I don't have a great deal of DM-ing experience but I know Pathfinder quite well and have plenty of time to put in.


Here's my submission, a vishkanya monk named Karash. Planning on taking snake style feats as the game progresses.

He's landed in jail for attempting to assassinate someone, but it'd be especially awesome if I can tie that in with someone else' character in the party. Maybe he was sent after the aforementioned judge's daughter, only Waterhammer's bard was there and things didn't work out as planned. Maybe there was a scuffle or maybe he just hesitated when it came time to "finish the job". It was his first hit (ever) and suffice to say, if he makes it out of jail alive, he may have angry assassins on his tail for a job poorly done.

All the stats are in the profile and I'll definitely flesh this guy out more later on.


If you need co-GMs, how many players are you looking for?

What to chose... Thinking witch or summoner at the moment.


I missed the co gm part, i could definitly help with that if you need more, otherwise ill submit a character


I'm thinking a tiefling alchemist, like what I had planned for another campaign I was gonna do...

However, I'd rather use the tiefling described in Council of Thieves' Infernal Bastard trait:

Rather than a resistance 5 to electricity, cold, and fire, get a +2 to saves against these effects; and instead of darkness 1/day, get a single 0-level at-will.

Let me know if this is acceptable!


Just to see how you like this, presenting Mellany, an Aasimar Witch:

Officially Mellany is in jail for theft. In reality, she spurned the advances of a local bigwig so he framed her for robbing his wife's jewelry. More detail on her background will be developed if you're interested.


Out of curiosity, why the artificial ceiling on starting attributes? I can understand nothing above 18 after racial modifiers, but nothing above 16 seems a little underpowered to me. Can you explain this a bit?


Totally out of place, but I'll take a crack at it psychic.

16 is very powerful, just not as superhumany as 18. What this will allow you to do is build your characters strength up as you go, rather than having him start insanely powerful. Also, IRL there aren't so many min-max'd people out there. It creates more realism while leaving room for some fantasy progression. I could be terribly off, but that's the impression I got.

I'm goin to work on a build and have something up soon. I presume it's okay to save up points and can them in when I'm ready right? If so is the minimum spent at lvl 1 25 points?

Lantern Lodge

I'd like to submit Alian Zaigan, Aasimar Lore Oracle devoted to Andoletta (one of the Empyreal Lords)

Alian Zaigan

He is in a Chelish prison because he propagated devotion to the good cause and silent resistance against the Infernal influences in Cheliax and the similarly dark influences seeping in from Nidal. Besides that he also is an Andoran national.

EDIT: He might go Staff Maguc MC at a later point to get better with his matron's favorite weapon.


Wow! 2 co-DMs in addition to players submission. This must be a rather complex adventure. How many players are you looking for?

What are you expecting from the co-DMs. I may be able to help.


This is Kybryn's application: Akari. Let me know if you would like me to reformat her statblock or repost her information here in the recruitment chat.

I'm going to have a lot of fun with this one if I get picked.


well, i'm not a very experienced DM, which is why i elected to have to Co DMs. i will allow the 4 Co Dm applicants to sort it out amongst themselves. but i am looking for quite a lot of players. 8-12 is my prefferred amount.


@Wolfman Do you have a list of things you'd like help with? That would help me decide if I would have the time and resources to help you.

May I take the "Desert Shadow" trait, but instead used it as "Shadow of the Forest" to have it fit my backstory? I wouldn't even have to change the description of the trait. I like using traits to make my character more dynamic. Generally speaking, I try mold traits to accentuate the personality and background of the character, not the other way around.

Desert Shadow:

Source Guide to Society Organized Play 16
You move with a quick and quiet grace and your enemies are often taken unawares by your silent speed. When using the Stealth skill to move at full speed you no longer suffer a -5 penalty on your Stealth skill check


So Far

WaterHammer Half Elf Bard
Mellany Aasimaar Witch
Karash Vishkanya Monk
Akari; Kitsune Rogue?
Alain Zygan; Aasimaar Oracle
Loup Blanc; Tiefling Alchemist?
Black Thom; Elan Psion

Questions to Answer

Waterhammer, yes, a half elf is fine, the core races are in chapter 1 of the ARG and i said chapters 1-3.

Krybyn, yes, you can save points for later, but you must spend at least the first 25.

Loup Blanc; you can take infernal bastard, treat it as an alternate racial ability instead of a trait.

Akari; Taking a trait and Renaming/Reskinning it is fine.

For CO DM

Darkone
Arkwright
Aroach
Robertness

the four of you can decide among yourselves however you wish.


Wolfman DM wrote:

It's a Kitsune Rogue archetype from the ARG. I've updated my character sheet to clarify.

exactly. and it also keeps the overpowered SAD casters in line as well.


What materials are you using? For the co DMs would need to have access to the material used.


CRB
APG
UM
UC
ARG
GMG
Dreamscarred PRess Psionics
Other resources by Paizo Publishing as long as they can be found on www.d20pfsrd.com

essentially, i'm giving people the right to get all the crazy out of thier system by channeling it.

Qadira

What do you expect from a co-DM, Wolfman?

Cheers


Dotting for interest. I am leaning towards making an ex soldier or soldier. Probably a ranger with the falconer archetype.


Dotting. Thinking of a sorcerer and eventually drain disciple.

I'm not interested in Co-DM spot, just wondering if that meant a bunch o'players. Which since you had four interested players by the time I got around to posting...

i do intend to have a lot of players. 8-12 players is what i am going for. i might go for more. Basically 1E table size. the more players, the more freedom. and i happen to be an inexperienced DM who is used to playing as a PC in 10+ player groups. it also allows my sadistic homegame style to make me less guilty. more players means i feel less qualms about downing a guy or two.


Just wondering, and the answer is probably no, but will I have my alchemy book with me? If not, as I expect the case will be, will I be able to easily access it before very long?

Lantern Lodge

Would you be ok with me changing the character from a generic Aasimar to an Angelkin Aasimar? They are new from the Blood of Angels supplement and spoiler here.

In short the changes are:
Stat bonuses change to: +2 Str, +2Cha instead of standard
Skill Bonus: +2 Heal and Knowledge (planes). I traded the 'Skilled' feature away for Linguist though
Spell-Like Ability: Alter Self 1/day instead of Daylight 1/day

The basic idea for the character already was to be a descendant of an Astral Deva (which would fit with him propagating the cause of good) and this way I can get that in a more direct way.


Cuan; Angelkin is fine

Naberius, you will eventually be able to recover your spell/alchemy book before long. in fact, any spellcasters are reccomended to list thier initial prepared/known spells. so that wizards and such aren't as shafted.

there will bother other, notable npc Inmates, you can earn thier trust or kill them, or temporaily use their help. they provide no loot though.


Profile finished. If there's anything wrong let me know. Heads up: I took the prehensile tail alternate racial trait, since the sorcerer bonus did nothing for me. If you'd rather I not have this, I can trade it back, but I figure the tail is as easy to shackle to the body as hands and feet.

the tail is fine.


i included a few boss opponents, some of which might be influenceable.

I'm still interested in the co-gm spot, and can help with all of those requirements.

you are now the CO DM. i need one more Volunteer. if you want to stat out a first level NPC inmate, Go ahead.


I only have the Pathfinder Core Rulebook and the Inner Sea Guide, and the SRD of course.

Wolfman DM: Can you tell us where exactly the cell is? For my background write-up.

This is what I have so far.


Waterhammer; it's fine.

the Cell is inside a Chelexian Prison within Westcrown. i will work on an NPC escort. i was thinking of sneaking an elven child as a timed distraction.

Grand Lodge

I got the Co DM dibs


DM Faelax wrote:

Arkright and Faelax are now my CO DMs. i have a rough setup of some non optimized prison guards.

Shadow Lodge

Thanks! Looking forward to co-controlling the fate of an entire party of sentients. PM me what you'd like me to get started on and such.


How many players are you looking for...? An Aasimar Paladin in a Cheliaxian prison sounds like the beginnings of a fun adventure. The fluff in Blood of Angels is pretty awesome.

Edited


How severe a crime are we supposed to come up with for ourselves? I have a character that came to mind that I think would be pretty cool, it's just that he was arrested for all of the things that get monarchs hot and bothered: sedition, treason, abolition. He is a halfling cavalier (order of the paw) who was born free but has spent his life helping slaves escape. He was arrested because he has gotten reckless as he upped his game, and started agitating for revolution.

--------------------
SPECIAL ABILITIES
--------------------
Aspiring Hellknight (Cheliax) +1 trait bonus on Intimidate checks, and Intimidate is always a class skill for you.
Cleave If you hit your first target, attack an adjacent target at the same attack bonus in exchange for -2 AC.
Hellknight Ancestry You gain a +2 trait bonus on Diplomacy checks to influence Hellknights and a +2 trait bonus on Intimidate checks to influence enemies of the Hellknights.
Power Attack -1/+2 You can subtract from your attack roll to add to your damage.

His family has lived in Cheliax for centries and his one life goal is to become a member of the Hellknights. He is currently in jail for murder, but he keeps telling inmates and the guards that he was protecting his own life. As no one is listening to his reasoning, Groden is begining to lose sight of his dream and is starting to get frustrated with how the world works.

I can expanded on that, let me know what you think.

If you need help running this, I have no issue with co-dming, but I lack a lot of time right now for that kind of planning


Geez. We've got several aasimar, a paladin, and now an aspiring Hellknight joining up? I'm beginning to think that tiefling was the wrong race to go with...
