Marcus and interested parties.:
They are pretty good for traits. They all tie you to different aspects of life in Bevory. Apart from guessing that the Noble Born and Bastard traits open you up for political subplots I am not sure what part they play in the AP. Some nice bonuses though +1 bab/cmb with long or Aldori swords, bonuses to will or fort saves, even a free horse. no por choices really.


I am thinking of submitting a Ranger
How do I go about doing so like other people have?

First create a character alias.

A character alias is like another ID on the forums for PBP games.

To create an alias;
1)right click on account at the top (so you don't loose this page),
2)sign in
3)in "Messageboard Aliases" click on "Create new messageboard alias"
4)put in the alias' name in alias name field
5)under avatar image, click change, select an avatar that matches the character concept as close as possible and click on it. (it takes time to load)
6)click on "submit changes" and the alias is created, but is blank.
7)in "Messageboard Aliases" you'll now see your new character alias, click on it and you'll be taken to the profile page,
8)click on create profile and fill it in will all the needed data, you can use Brigette above as a template, just click on her name.

This helped me get started. It seems to be the unofficial guide.

DH's Guide to Play By Post gaming


Thanks. I changed my character to a Mysterious Stranger - Gunslinger


Where's the GM?

Cheliax

He said its open until the 15th. Maybe he had a busy days.


Mark is done and ready to go. Went with Pioneer as his Campaign Trait.

Bought myself a mule! Helps to carry all the handy exploring equipment I have!


I am very interested, and have two characters that haven't progressed past concept. Which one I prefer varies by the moment, so I'll put them both up and let you decide. One is an escaped slave halfling rogue with designs of establishing a nation of escaped (especially halfling) slaves. The other is a bastard monk with ties to the ruling family, he just wants to create a vassal of Brevoy to make it more powerful. I'll work on them and post them up after the kids are in bed tonight.

DM Here, whats up?


I think the natives were getting restless due to a lack of your great bald head giving them guidance and asking questions about builds and backstories.


Drogan is now an alias so here is my official submission. you can ignore the one on the first page. thanks.


Hi, joined just recently here, would like to play in this campaign, might need a little help to get started up and used to things, but am not a complete beginner at these games.

Will try to figure out alias and such later, for now I wish to hear if the GM actually approves of the presence of my person here, I am also not sure about if the campaign name is Kingmaker or if it is some additional book that is needed. I know Pathfinder basically, was RP-ing most my life, but had no chance to actually play Pathfinder yet, despite that I think it is better than E3.5 or E4

Also, I am Hungarian, so excuse any typos and somesuch, hope I am still writing proper enough to not need a dictionary or someone extra to decipher my scribbling.

As for character: not knowing what to make yet, if GM has suggestions or requests based on the lack of some necessary class that is not around yet, then I will cook up some concept based on that. If the party has a lot of nobles I will probably make some street urchin, if the opposite then maybe an elven noble


FYI I updated my sheet, changed my 1st level favored class bonus to +1 Skill Point (for Craft Weapons) and then also changed Sense Motive to Craft Blacksmith.

I am basically using Craft (Blacksmith) as a catch all for the mudane things a smith would know how to make or do (mend or make pots, mudane tools, ect). Profession Blacksmith could also work.

Its up to you DM which you would prefer him to have for Flavor.

Grand Lodge

@Marketus Jackson Profession Blacksmith seems more appropriate for what your trying to do with it.

Lots of great submissions everyone, this is going to take a while to pick the party

If you have any questions don't be afraid to ask.

Same bonus either way haha. Keeping Craft (Weapons) and Craft (Armor) and will switch Craft Smith to Profession Smith to cover the mundane stuff.

EDIT: And Done. If anything looks amiss to anyone please let me know :)

Cheliax

I'm pretty certain Petronicus is done. I picked the Threatening Defender trait without actually having combat expertise but plan on picking it up first chance. Also went with Pioneer but changed the fluff a little.

"Bingo, though I would not have refered to the GM as great bald head"


I am submitting Petriak Krupt for consideration in this adventure. As a noble born son of Orlovsky and Sorcerer Supreme he is ready to get to work. Background and crunch are in his profile.


Grundle's story and alias complete!

Grand Lodge

I have decided to close recruitment early, I feel like I have an excellent party to work with here

Bydar, Cleric of Shelyn
Bridgette Valerius, Barbarian/Monk
Marketus Jackson, Oracle of Metal
Raxus Half Blood, Barbarian
Petriak Krupt, Sorceror

Thanks to all who submitted, but these 5 fit what I was looking for in a party. Gameplay thread will be opened up by 3pm EST tommorow. I will address any concerns with these characters in the discussion thread

Woot! Yay! And other boisterous signs of happiness!

Thanks.


hm, oh well, good luck to the Chosen Ones


Huzah!

Thank you Great Bald Head!


"Thank you for the chance."


Thanks for the chance! Can't wait to get cracking


Thanks for the consideration!


Good gaming all!


Glad to be aboard and looking forward to getting down to the fun.


rejected again

0 for 7 or maybe 8 now


Sorry man.

Something I've noticed in recruitment threads is that GMs like 2 things in particular-

1) A clear, concise layout of abilities in an Alias. (I use spoilers to separate my character sheet into sections)

2) Characters that use mechanics they understand well that fill a clear party roll.

That plus a conversational writing style will get you pretty far.

There's a PBP beginner's guide linked in my profile. It might help you.

Good luck in the future.

@ Edward: If I had to put a finger on it, I would say it's because your character is a Word Caster. Your character looks well thought out and put together, but I’m not sure how many GMs out here have experience with Word Casting, or want to take the time to learn it. You may be getting rejected on that item alone. Just a thought. In the future you might ask if the GM is up for working with Word Casting and if not, submit a standard caster.

Since we're critiquing, anybody mind giving some insight as to why Sade struggles?

@ Sade: I don’t see anything glaring. Your Stat Black could use some more formatting as it’s a little hard to read. What you may be running into is that since Kingmaker is a wilderness setting campaign, GMs may prefer a Barbarian or Ranger over a Fighter to fill the melee/tank role in the party.

Also, you only posted once in this thread. If you post multiple times, asking questions, showing interest in other characters, etc. then the GM will be more likely to think of your character as a part of the party come selection time. Just a thought.

Taldor

Cool, Thanks Thor

"I agree with ThorGN, on the stat blocks.

what would help is to look at those that got in
and try and use one of them as a template."

Grand Lodge

@Edward ThorGN hit it right on the head. Ive never even seen a wordcaster played before, that was the main reason. Otherwise your character was good


Honestly, if I were the GM I'd have no problem with Sade. You write well and have a concise layout.

The only issues I can see come from party role and personality.

Dex based fighters take about 4 levels to "warm up". Until them they're usually forced into the role of "secondary melée damage dealer", the same role usually filled by a rogue, monk or ranger, but the Dex fighter doesn't have the skills to fill out other niches too.

Personality-wise, Sade is a little bit boring. The "arrogant, ambitious noble swordsman" is a classic concept but needs a little something extra to make it 'pop'.

Why not try using a trait or two to give him some unexpected flavor? Something not really part if his core concept, but still interesting and useful.
