OK Guys heres the OOC thread as promised. We can talk classes and once the Players guide is out move on to full concepts.

Andoran

Male Historian/Curator

Fantastic, I cannot wait....only a few more weeks!! Is the player guide a free pdf or do we need to purchase it?


It's always been free in the past.

According to Mr Jacobs it should be out by next Thursday at the latest.


I don't really have a preference for class at the moment so I don't mind seeing what others want to do, and then fill in what we might be missing.

ETA: Do you have Character Creation ideas yet? We buying stats or rolling? Or do you want to wait for the guide to decide that kind of stuff?

Shadow Lodge

I haven't even started to consider character ideas for this AP yet. Something more light-hearted to get me out of the Carrion Crown mindset.

Shadow Lodge

Guide is now out, yay!


Still thinking about class ideas, but I definitely want the Childhood crush on Ameiko trait, of no one objects :)


okheres the basics for character creation

25 point buy(because this is an EPIC storyline)

You can draw on any Paizo resource.

Banned Trait: Rich Parents

Ammended Trait.Heirloom weapon, I will be using the original version of this trait as I hate the new one.

Starting cash: Average for class.


New Alias (halplm), but I'm still looking at class options. My thought at the moment is a Bard with the Arcane duelist archetype, but I'm still going to see what other people are thinking before deciding.


Cancel that, Gonna put in a Sorcerer of the Celestial Bloodline. Will update the profile as I get details worked out.

Shadow Lodge

Will Gunslinger be permitted even though Ultimate Combat isn't out yet? I'm thinking Half-Orc Gunslinger with the Student Survivalist campaign trait.


I'll have to say no to Gunslingers.

Andoran

Male Historian/Curator

What about a witch? Do we need to take a trait from the new list? None really stick out for the character I am thinking of making. Also, being new to this, how do we post the characters? I use herolab to create mine, so just a pdf?


Generally you should post a character sheet of some sort on the characters profile page.

And witches I have no problem with..samurai and ninja are also allowable.


My Current Runelords game

Check this thread out for examples of Profile page Character sheets and also my gaming style. I'm a fairly easy going GM and prefer to nudge players along rather than force them into taking actions.


Traits: As the question was asked I'll try and answer it as best I can.

Generally the Campaign traits are supposed to give your character a vested interest in taking part in the campaigns story.Therefore it is required off you to pick one trait from the Players guide and a second trait from any other source(except PFS Faction traits and the banned Rich Parents one)

Having said that if you can come up with a trait that you think could tie you to the campaign better than the ones given in the book then submit it to me and I'll look at it..


O at the risk of overwhelming you guys with info..how do you feel about

1) The Romance Rules?

2)The Caravan Rules?

I'm all for using both. The Romance rules are an interesting new way to handle things. Could give a lot of incentive to the PCs.

The Caravan seems like a lot of bookkeeping, but as long as the group can come to agreements about it, it should be fun.

Andoran

Male Historian/Curator

Both sets of rules seem interesting. I like the caravan rules, but I kinda like that sort of stuff anyway!! As for the character sheets...I see the profile area on my account area...is this what you mean?? If so, I will fill it out. And as for the traits, I will try and justify the ones I am thinking of taking...and I understand the reasoning behind the campaign traits, but as a witch, none seem to fit right..

I like both sets of rules as well. I think the relationship rules add an extra dimension to PC/NPC interaction.

The caravan rules will be fun, I think, as long as the group is willing to put in the extra legwork to handle it. It's a lot like the nation building rules in Kingmaker. Yeah they added in extra work, but they really made the AP into something better than it otherwise would have been.

On a character note, I'm thinking a human Transmuter or Summoner (Synthesist). Don't know about the campaign trait yet. Gonna give those another look over.


Profiles..For those of you not used to PbP you'll need an alternative alias set to your character and the profile there filled in you'll get the general idea from any of the PbP threads.

I also like the Romance and Caravan rules I have one player in my Kingmaker Face to Face game who has taken it upon himself to do the kingdom building aspect and it certainly adds to the whole campaign.


Ok, my profile is up.

DM Wellard, got a question about the Heavenly Fire ability for the celestial bloodline. It says it targets foes with a ranged touch attack and hurts evil creatures while curing good creatures. Does that mean I can cast it on allies for cures(assuming they're good of course)? Seems like I should be able to target friends as well as foes, but It's not clear.


M Halfling Sorcerer-Elemental/1

Ok...new character avatar for Daniel Stewart...now I just have to figure out how to complete her character sheet..lol

Shadow Lodge

Question:
For those of us familiar with Rise of the Runelords, how much time would you say has passed since the events in that AP? I don't think it says in the Player's Guide, so I'm guessing it's leaving it up to the GM.


M Halfling Sorcerer-Elemental/1

Ok...normally I am pretty good at this sort of thing, but for the life of me I cannot figure out how to make my profile. Where it normally says create the profile is grey'd out on my sheet...a little help please???

Go to My Account. Under Message Board Settings click on your Avatar Name. At the top it should say "avatar name's" Page. Right underneath that it'll list your aliases. Click on the one you want to edit, and then click Edit My Profile. It'll have spaces for name, race, class, special abilities, and ability scores, but for the rest of the info (feats, traits, spells, etc...) you'll have to type those in yourself in the About Asta Var section.


M Halfling Sorcerer-Elemental/1

Ok...it is all good right up to the point when I click my alias and it takes me to the page where I should be able to edit my profile, but all it says is "Astavar has not created a profile." There is no button to push to edit the character. I have another alias that does allow me to edit the character...but I just cannot understand why this one will not let me....very confused....

Shadow Lodge

It doesn't say something along the lines of "Click here to create a profile"?


Female Human (Varisian/Shoanti) Summoner (Synthesist) 3

Character profile up for LordHector. Just gotta finish up the details on my eidolon.

No, it does not...I know where it should be...it just isn't. It is very weird....I am wondering if I created my alias incorrectly....but I dont see how that could be....should I delete this alias and make a new one??

You can, it's not like it takes a long time to make one. I just find it strange that you can't create a profile.

I think that should say any target rather than any foe.So yes you can use it on your allies if they are good.


Female Human (Varisian/Shoanti) Summoner (Synthesist) 3

Any alterations you'd like me to make to my profile, DM?


Lissa's Profile looks fine..nice to see that you are well integrated into Sandpoint and I love the fact that you are being groomed to be the next Madame of the Pixies Kitten..btw your mom has been well defined by me in my Runelords game(Think Dolly Parton in Best little Whorehouse in Texas..only without the singing)

As to the time line this AP is suppossed to occur about 4 years after the events of Runelords.However I am going run it as occuring just after the events of Skinsaw Murders.The reasons for this will become apparent during the game.One change to the NPC's this will bring about is that Madame Mvashti is still alive at the start.


Female Human (Ulfen/Tien) Witch/3

Ok...no longer Broken22...it seems it did not like the name Asta Var, becouse it would not work whenever I used that name, but soon as I changed it...pow..its all working.
Sooo...after much crazyness, here is the witch, Runa. Still need to write up her background, but here are her stats and such. Hope they are ok


Runa that mostly looks fine..I'm a little puzzled abut the number of DEX based skills you have with a negative modifier though.

Totally not how I pictured her, but okay, lol.

Wild guess at who the father is?


Female Human (Ulfen/Tien) Witch/3

Ok...had some negitives due to equipment weight, so I fixed that...also changed one trait....hope it is ok

Excellent. I'm working on my backstory, should be up sometime tonight.

LOL, well as your momma has a long term relationship with Sherrif Hemlock....

@Runa ..Great trait for a Healer Witch..I play one myself in a Carrion Crown Game

OK so we have Sorcerer, Witch and Summoner...who is going to hit people with sharp pointy things?


Ok, backstory added. It kind of fell into place after I had built my character, hope it works for you, or I can always change it :). I'm pretty flexible.


Female Human (Varisian/Shoanti) Summoner (Synthesist) 3

Eidolon all done. Since I'm a synthesist, I'll most likely fill the role of party sword-catcher. Summoning my eidolon grants me all his physical ability scores and evolutions rather than him be a separate creature.


I'm going to give the missing players till Monday to respond here and then throw it open to other novices.


Male Human Expert (GM) / Level ??

Hello DM Wellard, and thanks for the invite! As far as classes that hit people with sharp, pointy things . . . I was thinking of playing Namuril Xae-Tal, an elf cavalier (Order of the Dragon). Profile to be completed later today, after I peruse the (newly acquired) Jade Regent Player's Guide! :)


Welcome Rhys.

@ Tavlor..nice tie into Runelords and the campaign traits..

I hate to railroad people into classes but this AP almost calls for a party cleric.


If no one else does and you think we need it, I can switch to cleric, although it will take some stat changing :)


Female Human (Varisian/Shoanti) Summoner (Synthesist) 3

We do have a healing witch, and I am capable of withstanding quite a bit of punishment. Do you really think we need a cleric?


I wasn't suggesting anyone change it was merely a note for those who had not yet decided on a character..now you do have the NPC Cleric in the Caravan but given the fact that there are likely to be a lot of Evil Outsiders in this AP you need someone who can do the protections and buffs that a healing witch just does not have.


I've been giving some further thought to the matter and I've decided to use Hero points as well in this..I want the whole game to have an Epic Kurosawa-like flavour.(another reason for having 7 players)


So does that include the various feats involving Hero points as well?
