Hello, and welcome.

Since I haven't had the chance to truly look at your characters yet, I ask that you sum your character up in a few sentences and paragraphs.

I also ask that you fix your characters to fit these guidelines:

Character Creation
1) 15-Point Buy, 1st Level,
2) Core races plus tiefling only,
3) Two traits. It is required that you pick one from the campaign traits.

4) No evil characters. 

5) Max HP at first level (roll or average thereafter).
6) Max starting gold
7) Archetype stacking is allowed, assuming the bonuses don't overlap.

If you prefer 20-point buy, feel free to tell me, but I think with a large party 15-point buy is better for balancing reasons. I am budgeable with this, though.

Secondly, if possible, could you perhaps know one another in pairs, in-character? If your background or character's integrity is challenged by this then feel free to ignore it, it's just a preference of mine.

A couple of house rules I will be using:

Group initiative: I roll initiative for everyone, and instead of acting in turns, you act in groups determined by the average of your rolls and the opponents' rolls.

Step Progression: Because PbPs are slow, I use the Step advancement system to add to the sense of progression.

For skills, if you wish to perform one, just state which skill and roll the dice with the appropriate modifier.

This is the OOC thread, so I ask that most OOC comments are kept here.

Ask any questions if you have them.

Male Half-Orc Cleric of Shelyn 1.75[ABD] (hp 16/16; AC 17/10/17; F: +6; R: +2, W; +8)

I must admit that I prefer 20-point buys, but I can make the adjustments if people prefer 15. The GM who would have run the last game had us start at 2nd, so a small amount of rebuilding will be necessary either way.

Super thumbnail version of Dracius Ludio: Cleric of Shelyn (Love and Protection Domains)

He views his own history as a perfect example of a beautiful love story and drama, complete with a villain and the triumph of love, and so he is, himself, an idealistic romantic (as much as anyone can be in Cheliax). Because of the circumstances that led to the changes in his life, he looks upon even simple things that most take for granted with a sense of wonder, seeing the beauty in them as would a child.

Simply, Dracius is a true idealist romantic -- and while he understands that the world does not work in a way that favours such -- he believes that it should....

He understands that it was pure luck and Shelyn's grace that led him to his own happy ending (and saw more than his share of unhappy ones from his time in the Rego Cader), and so he feels that it is his duty to try to bring about as many more as he can.... to make the world work in that idealistic, fair way.

In addition, as the harshness of his early life did not corrupt him or leave him bitter -- he thinks of himself as incorruptible, as is his goddess.

.... that's a bit longer than I was hoping, I admit, but should give you the idea. As always, the "full" history is in the profile, and I'll look at the 15-pt rebuild.

Male Human Inquisitor (2)

Woohoo! Thanks for picking me! Step advancement sounds like fun, 15 point buy is less fun but I can live with it.

Roman's thumbnail version: he is a fantasy version of a wannabe superhero, kinda like Kick-Ass. He used to be an ordinary citizen until disaster struck him. After that he felt that he can't rely on the law and must confront the creatures of the night himself. He began living a secret night life and seeking contacts who might help him in his personal vengeance.


Dotting. Feeding baby then will get work on getting my witch ready. I can live with the 15 pt buy, just need to cut out some points.

HP 18/18 (AC18/To11/FF17) Female Half-Elf Paladin of Shelyn 1.50AD

Dotted. Illithia will need to be scaled down a bit as she was originally created with a 25pt buy at level 2. I should have it done today though.

Female Tiefling Wizard / 1

Here is that alias for my (Joy's) Witch.

This is the character I plan to use. He is your stereotypical bar-brawling gunslinger(oh noes!). He's trying to redeem himself by investigating Westcrown. Well while 20 would be better, I can live with 15 points. That steps system is intriguing. As far as pairing up goes, I can do that. Anyone want to be friends with a cowboy?

HP 18/18 (AC18/To11/FF17) Female Half-Elf Paladin of Shelyn 1.50AD

Illithia's crunch is fixed. Will post a more detailed character background later today.

Since four of you (at least) want to use 20-point buy, I won't have a problem with you bumping it up to 20-point buy.

I will be busy tonight and tomorrow, but I might start the thread tomorrow afternoon.

Male Human Inquisitor (2)

Roman is deleveled to level 1 and ready to go meet some hellknights! :)

Female Tiefling Wizard / 1

Background summary::
Circe was born to a minor noblewoman who had a series of affairs with Incubi. Her husband ignored the affairs because he was common born and his wife's title had vastly improved his business. Circe was raised amongst their human children though she tended to get the blame for any accidents that happened and her punishments more severe.

One day when hiding from her older siblings, Circe climbed the wall into her neighbor's backyard and found herself by their garden altar to Shelyn. They felt sorry for her and let her stay as they worshipped and then explained to her Shelyn. Circe was immediately taken with the goddess and strives to attain inner beauty like her since Circe figures no one will accept her for her outer appearance.

Since she feels like a second class citizen within her own home, Circe doubts there is anything better for her out there. She wishes tieflings were viewed equally with everyone else.

Male Half-Orc Cleric of Shelyn 1.75[ABD] (hp 16/16; AC 17/10/17; F: +6; R: +2, W; +8)

Dracius is back down to level 1, 20-points, and ready to go.

Bishop is now updated with 20 points as well. Full-ish backstory in profile. And since I failed to mention it, this is Amazing Red's character.

Male Human Inquisitor (2)

Shelyn seems to be very popular in this party!

Out of the characters presented so far, Bishop looks like the best pair for Roman, if that's OK for him.

Female Tiefling Wizard / 1

Maybe all the Shelyn followers have met at services before?

HP 18/18 (AC18/To11/FF17) Female Half-Elf Paladin of Shelyn 1.50AD

I imagine most of the services to Shelyn are more akin to concerts. xD

Very likely.

We will start on the morrow.

I have no problem with all the followers of Shelyn know each other.

Male Half-Orc Cleric of Shelyn 1.75[ABD] (hp 16/16; AC 17/10/17; F: +6; R: +2, W; +8)

I'm good with knowing my fellow Shelynites.

It might be the whole... it's 4 o'clock in the morning and my senses are messed up, but do I only see five people here?

Yea, that's ok with me. They seem like the best fit in terms of personality.

Female Tiefling Wizard / 1

5 is what I count

Working on the introduction right now.

I also noticed that I have Tilnar in this group. This makes me glad.

The adventure begins...

I deliberated upon how to start the adventure - and eventually made the assumption that Janiven already met you all. If you wish to play out this meeting in-character as a form of retcon or past encounter, by all means - we can do this in spoilers. For simplicity's sake, however, I did it the way I did.

You do indeed. ;) Glad to be here.

While I remember: I ask that you put OOC comments in OOC tags in the IC thread. Just as a precaution. I forgot to mention this in some of my other games, which got a little frustrating early on.

HP 18/18 (AC18/To11/FF17) Female Half-Elf Paladin of Shelyn 1.50AD

I realized there was some problems with my character sheet, and so I updated it. If you guys spot something out of place, please let me know. Also included an updated background.

I hope you're enjoying this thus far.

I must admit I was doubtful with such an impromptu group. I am glad I went through with this.

Male Half-Orc Cleric of Shelyn 1.75[ABD] (hp 16/16; AC 17/10/17; F: +6; R: +2, W; +8)

So far, so good. :)

Just a note, Patcher -- the other aborted campaign had us meet with Jeniven (she came to us to recruit) -- since you skipped ahead, I've been playing as if that meeting went down the way it did in the other thread -- I probably should have mentioned that sooner.

If you'd like to see that (I don't think there were many posts), it's here -- and if not, no problems. :)

I was unaware of this. I can check it out later, though I don't think all players here are in that thread?

HP 18/18 (AC18/To11/FF17) Female Half-Elf Paladin of Shelyn 1.50AD

I was not in that thread, no.

Fully enjoying this thus far and the party dynamics.

I was also not in that thread. The dynamics in the party are interesting. Bandit? Really?

Male Half-Orc Cleric of Shelyn 1.75[ABD] (hp 16/16; AC 17/10/17; F: +6; R: +2, W; +8)

No, they weren't -- however, as I said, I was basing Dracius' reaction to Jeniven on that "initial" meeting -- if you'd rather I didn't, I'm fine with that - but since (in this game) the initial invitations happened off-camera, I was using the same dynamic.

In terms of this group -- yes, I'm enjoying the dynamics myself. ;)

Male Human Inquisitor (2)

Looks like I'll be an outcast among the Shelynites :) But still, I enjoy the interactions so far, and most importantly the tempo!

Happy holidays.

Female Tiefling Wizard / 1

Merry Christmas :)

Male Human Inquisitor (2)

Happy holidays!

Merry Christmas!

HP 18/18 (AC18/To11/FF17) Female Half-Elf Paladin of Shelyn 1.50AD

Hope everyone had good holidays! I'm back to your regularily scheduled posting.

Male Half-Orc Cleric of Shelyn 1.75[ABD] (hp 16/16; AC 17/10/17; F: +6; R: +2, W; +8)

Happy Holidays and goodwill to all -- I'm also back to normal posting (at least until the 30th). ;)

I apologise for my lack of posting. I am struggling with real life. Don't know when it'll blow over.

HP 18/18 (AC18/To11/FF17) Female Half-Elf Paladin of Shelyn 1.50AD

It happens Patcher, just take your time.

Male Half-Orc Cleric of Shelyn 1.75[ABD] (hp 16/16; AC 17/10/17; F: +6; R: +2, W; +8)

We'll wait. We've been having fun so far! ;)


Male Half-Orc Cleric of Shelyn 1.75[ABD] (hp 16/16; AC 17/10/17; F: +6; R: +2, W; +8)

Hopefully this will matter because Patcher'll be back, but, I'll be away (IRL) starting this Saturday (January 21) until the following Tuesday (Feb 1)on a winter holiday --- since Internet on resorts is painful expensive, I'll need to be DM controlled during that time.

HP 18/18 (AC18/To11/FF17) Female Half-Elf Paladin of Shelyn 1.50AD

I hate to admit defeat, so here's a bump. Hopefully Patcher is okay.

Male Half-Orc Cleric of Shelyn 1.75[ABD] (hp 16/16; AC 17/10/17; F: +6; R: +2, W; +8)

Wow, I can't tell you how much your bump got my hopes up. :P

HP 18/18 (AC18/To11/FF17) Female Half-Elf Paladin of Shelyn 1.50AD

Mah bad. >_> This is probably just making it worse for the next person to login.

+1 to both of you. I hope he comes back, I was really excited about this AP.

Male Human Inquisitor (2)

Yeah it was a great start, a pity to have this game die down

So it looks like Patcher is not coming back any time soon. Anyone here still interested in trying to recruit another DM for this?
