Since my tabletop game just went bellyup I thought I may have room for another PBP, and I've had my eyes on Castle Whiterock a while now.
This will be an old-fashioned dungeon crawl. I'm better at keeping the action flowing than providing a living environment anyway. Check out my other games to see what my style is like.
I'm looking for five players. I will grant two spots to the two first to present me with characters, and two spots to old friends (meaning anyone that has gamed with me and liked it). Since this is set in my old campaign world (The Wilderlands) retired characters from my other games are especially welcome and may keep their xp and gear. The fifth spot will be picked arbitrarily.
Character creation will be using 20 point buy, standard wealth, no traits. All Paizo books are fair game but no samurai, ninja or gunslingers. I use the Golarion gods. Standard races (there are some odd flavors of human in the setting but that is marginal).
Posting will be expected once a day on weekdays. If you don't post within 24 hours (excepting weekends) you will be considered delaying. More frequent posting is of course welcome.
I don't keep track of initiative after the first round, so you can post in any order. I also use a variant of hero points, but we'll get to that.
Please ask if I forgot to mention anything.
Is standard wealth average gold for first level or rolling for wealth?
Ok Im finishing up a half-orc chain fighter then.
Alright this is the character I have fleshed out for this campaign.
I'm a long time player, but new to the online campaign style of play (just to give you the heads up). If it is alright with you, would you consider a Human Druid with the Dual Talent alternate racial trait? Everything else would be standard, and I am leaning towards the earth domain Nature Bond.
Guys, I may have as much as two spots left, but I'd prefer to wait a couple of days to see if any other old friends decide to pop in. At worst you are first alternates if someone bails.
It would be easier to pick characters if you stat them out a bit. Dual Talent is fine.
I hope to give a definite answer after the weekend.
Very well then. Here is a summary of the Druid I was considering.
The stats would be - STR: 14 DEX: 15 CON: 12 INT: 10 WIS: 18 CHA: 10
The 2, +2 bonuses going into Dex. and Wis.
Alignment: Neutral Good
AC:15 HP:9 For.+3 Ref.+2 Wil.+6
Concentration:+9 Base Attack:+0 CMB:+2 CMD:14
Feat/s: Combat Casting
Equipment:Leather Armor, Light Wooden Shield, Sickle, Backpack, Spell Component Pouch, Belt Pouch, flint and steel, holly, mistletoe, iron pot, mess jkit, soap, Torches x10, trail rations (5 days), waterskin, 37 gold
Skills:Climb: +5 Knowledge Nature: +4 Perception: +8 Spellcraft: +4 Survival: +8
*edit* The additional skill point is from favored class, of course.
Please let me know if you are withdrawing Alaric Morgain. I'll post the final party on Sunday. There may be room for an alternate party too if I get enough applicants. My experience is that a lot of players drop off early, so you may very well get in eventually.
OK, we have a party consisting of Torr, Jim Strongarm, Tyros, Eider Da'mok and Philander. Please post in the discussion thread (dotting if nothing else) while we get you fitted out for the adventure.
Zababa, Vonzara and Edeldhur: if you can finalize your characters and find a fourth player you are welcome to form an alternate party. Otherwise just hang around and you are the first alternates in case someone drops out. Thank you for your interest.
Yes, you are welcome to post in the discussion thread. It would be nice for you to have a connection to the others. It's still entirely possible that you may end up in the party, and if I get four alternates we can run a side quest for you.
I'd like to throw my hat into the ring as a fourth member of the "backup" group.
I just need to finish the non-crunchy bits (background, personality) but should have those done by tomorrow evening at the latest.
Note: I have elected NOT to have a patron deity and just follow an abstract ideal. I chose Protection and Healing as my domains. If this is a problem, please let me know.
Thank you for that. A godless cleric works fine actually. If you can just get four characters together we're good to go. Feel free to dot the discussion thread when you are done. It won't hurt if you have connections to the other party or each other.
Betoruga, take a look at my character profile or better yet one of my other characters like Hermann who's even more detailed. That's what I mean by "crunch" and "complete". You should be able to fairly easily determine any modifiers for any action you can take, and understand any and all of your class abilities and selected feats.
Also, you have 3 more points you can spend to bump something up:
Str 14 (5 points)
Dex 14 (5 points)
Con 11 (1 point)
Int 13 (3 points)
Wis 14+2 (racial pick) =16 (5 points)
Cha 8 (-2 points)
5+5+1+3+5-2=17 points, leaving 3 remaining for a 20 point build.
