This campaign is my attempt to play a canonical Planescape campaign using the updated Pathfinder ruleset. The game actually predates the release of Pathfinder, but we have managed to update as we have needed.

Do you have access to the Book of Vile Darkness?

I really hate those books.
IMO they add nothing to the game and I've banned them from my table.


Oookaayyy, so I have your opinion.


Dark speech is also in Hordes of the Abyss, I believe (which is a very fine supplement in its own right and I use it heavily as a DM).

Ah well that's a bit different then.

Every time I hear the BoVD or BoED mentioned I tense up. They weren't particularly good source books IMO because they could seriously unbalance the game unless the books heavily used by the DM and players alike. They're not good books for just dipping into IMO.

Hey all, still feeling super keerappy. Trying to stay current, just posting to say I am still in the mix. Questions for the newcomers:

1. Do you want to be in a faction? No one is in the game ATM, but it is an option.

2. What type of stories are you interested in playing? We can do all sorts in Sigil, and I can do side stuff as well (the party has split up on several occasions). Like political, save the world/rescue the damsel, get loot/power, travel to interesting places/meet cool beings/slaughter them? I like to have input, I roll a fairly open storyline.

I will research Dark Speech tonight, as I have both books indicated. If it is some sort of super evil tongue used to curse/power up evil spells, that should be OK, just remember that these things do have consequences when used, and you have to be ready to pay the piper ...'specially if he's Azathoth. Anyway, I'll read up on it and get back to you Vulcan.


I'm a big fan of save the world/princess, travel to cool places meet intersteing people and kill them/take their stuff, retrieve the mythical whoosywhatsit from the pit of doom type of story.

I'm also a big fan of roleplay and character interaction so it all works for me I guess.

And yeah, you're pretty much in the ballpark on darkspeech. And temporary Charisma damageis a pretty hefty price.


Since I'm not all that familiar with the Planescape setting and have no idea what any of the factions are, I was kind of planning to cover that with having the character be new to Sigil and therefore also totally ignorant. I read the thread and got a decent feel for how things work, but I'm still going 'huh?' more often than not.
As far as types of quest, I can pretty much go with anything. It's all fun. Naridre is most likely to act against her fear if there's someone actually in danger, but since that might all too often be the other pcs...:)

Ah no worries I had barely heard of Sigil before joining this PbP and you generally get used to all the odd phrases after a while.

Yeah this story is very narrativistic, but that's why I like Planescape, it's fun to write, and there's a lot of intersting stuff you can do. You can also easily go ANYWHERE. Kevin's and Kayos' characters just spent the morning on the Negative Energy Plane for instance ..

Cool,
Between the two characters I am trying to build, (Why bother with just one when you can do two in almost the same time?) One is an experienced Planar traveler (Universilist Wiz)‚ who loves to get involved and help out people wherever he ends up, (Was actually thinking more of the 80's TV show with the time traveller with the pocketwatch than Dr Who, but both were my inspiration) and the other is an evocation specialist specializing in ray spells who plays the Han Solo tough guy act, but you know he's gonna help out the underdog. Especially if it's a damsel in distress!

IN short (TOO LATE!) it's all good! I like a variety, and it looks like you got that covered!

The Experienced Planar Traveller was going to be a (renegade?) member of a society that watches over the planes. So he could be a member of a faction, but the group might thinks it's better than the factions.

The blaster-caster was originally from one world and got stranded. Pretty basic. He might have joined up with a group, but thinking his stubbornness may have prevented it. He thinks he likes to play by his own rules.

IT'S ALL GOOD! HE wants to do it all! :) "Save the universe before lunch,... again?!? Oh all right,..." ;P

Hi all,
Just checking in, the gut bugs still kicking my ass, but I am trying to come up with some insertion stories. If everyone can make sure that they get their backgrounds written sos I can riff off them I will be dropping your characters in during the month handwaiving that will be coming through the game soon. Thanks! Any questions, post em.


I kinda ran out of room in the character's profile to type her background. I tried. And after I had to retype the whole thing because that resulted in my whole profile getting eaten, I gave up. Should I put it behind a spoiler here or in the discussion thread?

Hey Pat, Hope your feeling better!

Almost done with both possible Wizzies. (I think I enjoy building them as much as playing them!)

Just wondered about how you planned on introducing the new guys, answer an add, meet during an encounter? BAsically, calmly or in a rush of adrenaline? Just wondering how to tonw the background sections.

Thx, get better soon! enjoying the main thread, can't wait to be involved!

Oh, would you prefer that all chatter went over to your Disscussion thread now?

Laters,...

Let's bring our character building over here for now, and let this thread die so we can streamline the process. :)


Howdy. I'm just visiting now, but will be looking in again soon. I wanted to say hello.


This always looked like a fun game. If there is room, I wouldn't mind playing a Xaositect who talks in literary quotes. :D

Fabes, I'll put you on the alternates list. I think there are four, but two were 1st time posters, and I haven't seen them about. K is taking a sabbatical, so perhaps after the next mission is over I'll throw it open for some more. :)


this looks very dead

Recruitment for an old game usually does. I hadn't even seen your post until I accidentally clicked it open today, lol. The game itself still soldiers on
