Devil-spawn and Demon-taint: A Fiendish Take on Skull & Shackles (Inactive)

Game Master Mark Sweetman

Press-ganged to serve aboard the Wormwood, the crew with the outsider's touch must struggle to stay alive long enough to sate their desire for revenge...

Ok, I think I have Deader all fixed up. Please take a look and see if you can spot any mistakes made in the transition.

Deader:
Which deity do you follow? Doesn't need to be known by the character, just for my reference in case I want to use if for anything. (I'm happy to massage domains slightly to fit if needed.)
HP should be higher - as you're now a level 2 character.
Not sure if you adjusted your attributes - but I'd be happy for you to do so if you wanted to.
Skill points also look like they're only for a 1st level, so you can spread some love there.

John - don't forget, we have a Druid, a bard, and probably a witch for healing as well.

And out of combat healing is usually the way to go in Pathfinder so if we can come up with a wand of cure light wounds at some point, we'll be in pretty good shape.


HP 31/31, AC 16, CMD 12, Fort +3, Ref +2, Will +6 Channel 6/6, Death Kiss 5/5 , Web 1/1, Coat 1/1

I don't think Deader knows what deity he follows. I think of his connection being more along the lines of a 3.5 Favored Soul than a normal priest. It's not so much that he chose a god to worship as it is that some god or outside power chose him (or, if he did chose a god, he doesn't remember it)

Of all of Pathfinder's gods, I think Azathoth is probably closest, though the story told by Cedrick could still work just fine.

I think I'll leave those details up to you. As a Dark Tapestry/Undeath cleric I'd imagine his deity is something Lovecraftian and madness inducing. I'm going to start working some kind of stargazing into his narrative which will be his version of "prayer".


HP 31/31, AC 16, CMD 12, Fort +3, Ref +2, Will +6 Channel 6/6, Death Kiss 5/5 , Web 1/1, Coat 1/1

Wait...

Looking through the pathfinder wiki, I see that the Dark Tapestry is a collection of gods. They can be worshiped as a pantheon. Even better, Cthulhu is actually listed in the wiki, complete with portfolio and domains.

Cthulhu is the patron of madness, dreaming in the sunken depths, sleeping in a city of corpses.

This is too good an opportunity to pass up. :)


HP 31/31, AC 16, CMD 12, Fort +3, Ref +2, Will +6 Channel 6/6, Death Kiss 5/5 , Web 1/1, Coat 1/1

I'm thinking of re-skinning created/summoned undead as being once-living creatures twisted into things unrecognizable by the touch of the Old Ones.

I'm getting all kinds of neat ideas. Necromancy is usually about taking things that were once alive and reanimating them. This would be more like using eldritch power to twist things into abominations that defy the conventions of what it means to be 'alive". Less "Night of the Living Dead" and more "The Thing".

Man I wish the Alienist was still a viable prestige class.

Oh, and HP: 1d8 ⇒ 5

Ooooh, Deader is headed in a creepy direction :) Not that he wasn't creepy already :-P

Madness is another cool domain which would fit you perfectly or Madness with the Nightmare subdomain. Void(Dark Tapestry) is nice as well, but you seem more down the Madness/Nightmare/Insanity direction the way you have been playing your character. That way as you recall things, it could be like waking up from at terrible nightmare - that was real.

On a side note, as I haven't had a chance to actually meet the animal I havent been able to (non meta) buy into Animal Handling, may I buy a rank in it so that I'm not completley useless at handling my mutt when I get it? :p

Nachni should be all leveled up. She's definitely going to keep gathering information on crew members and trying to get them to our side. Will see about a post tomorrow.


HP 31/31, AC 16, CMD 12, Fort +3, Ref +2, Will +6 Channel 6/6, Death Kiss 5/5 , Web 1/1, Coat 1/1

I thought about that, but I don't particularly like the abilities and spells granted by the Madness domain.

As a cleric with a lower than average spell-casting stat, it's better to pick spells that don't allow or require saves. Basically all the madness spells are Save Negates.

I think the Dark Tapestry domain is good enough in terms of granting crazy-based powers.


Primordial Ooze

Cedrick - yep, no problem with banking a skill point away to whip out when you meet your canine companion.

Deader - Cthulu is indeed a solid choice, and I wouldn't have problems with reskinning of abilities / summons to suit otherworldly entities from behind the curtain.


Primordial Ooze

Interesting choice - but one that will be rewarded as you intend I think...


HP 31/31, AC 16, CMD 12, Fort +3, Ref +2, Will +6 Channel 6/6, Death Kiss 5/5 , Web 1/1, Coat 1/1

Thought you might like that :)

Closest water is the Bilge, right? Right.


Primordial Ooze

Technically the closest water would be in the kitchen, though there are a couple of other means in the main hold to kill a small fire available (canvas and such). As you were actively trying to make the fire spread I'll be taking that into consideration moving forward.

Greetings all! I am finally back in my own dungeon/hobbit hole. Fish is updated to lv2. Now we just need to find an opportune moment.


Female Tiefling - Oni Spawn Druid(aquatic)/4 - HP 35/35; AC17/19 w/shield, FF15, T12; F+6,R+3,W+8; Per+11; Init+3

Welcome back, you returned just in time for whatever is going to happen next. DMVoV has been silent for a day or so, but I would expect updates before long.

Thanks. I too am curious to see how our flaming dead man will turn out.

Welcome back Fish! Can't wait to see how you flop back on board.


Primordial Ooze

Welcome back Fish, and updates will be incoming tonight my time. Had an epic day at work followed by an evening of musical theatre so didn't get a chance for many posts yesterday.


Primordial Ooze

Well we're pretty firmly off script, but I must say the final result should be interesting :)

ROFL - you mean the ship was not supposed to be lit afire and half the crew killed this early?

The Bastard Child of Albertus Swearengen arises :p


Male Human

Ah, Deadwood! An excellent series which was unfortunately cut short.


Cedrick has been rather politely biding his time to start getting even, Hornblower on the outside, Swearengen on the inside... first start to bring the crew onside, then show Jerky-man is weak and losing control, and now starting to cut off his eyes and ears (and hands).

Good grief, what is this speed posting day? I read this thread not more than 10 minutes ago and now there are 5 more posts between the IC and OOC.

Nah, just that Cedrick has been waiting ages to get even :)


Primordial Ooze

I think the coming of even is still yet to come... this had more of a beatdown feel to it ;)


Male Human

You know, I liked the fact that the dice gods helped us -I am certainly unaccustomed to their favor- and gave the scene a nice feeling of turning the tables. Not to mention making two supposed warriors and killers actually look like that for a change by going into a mini-blitzkrieg and quickly and efficiently dispatching their foes.


I must say, it was pretty slick. Made it seem all genuine and efficient.

About time we really got one up.

No kidding. Was in line at Starbucks and just doing a quick check of the Campaign page expecting nothing and it's at 10 and 14.


Primordial Ooze

Aaand another body ends up being served up on a platter to Cedrick and Joneth. With Deader and Obisyth in varying degrees of trouble for disobeyance of orders (plus... you know setting the ship on fire and all) this should make for a very very interesting denoument.


Cedrick is happy to leave it at two, but if this isn't going to work then he is more than happy to go again, no point needlessly killing too many people.


Female Tiefling - Oni Spawn Druid(aquatic)/4 - HP 35/35; AC17/19 w/shield, FF15, T12; F+6,R+3,W+8; Per+11; Init+3

Obisyth is attempting to save herself, at least a little.


Primordial Ooze

Tis a pity that there probably isn't much cooking oil left on Deader when Obisyth dumps water on him... Otherwise I could have fun with how the attempt to help is actually a hindrance ;)

As in, putting water on an oil fire doesn't put it out... it just spreads the fire around - or makes a flaming volcano if you attempt it on a burning pot of oil.
But the fire on Deader is more likely just from his clothes by now as he smeared most of the oil off on the way over.


Female Tiefling - Oni Spawn Druid(aquatic)/4 - HP 35/35; AC17/19 w/shield, FF15, T12; F+6,R+3,W+8; Per+11; Init+3

Obisyth has an 8 Int, she would have no clue about oil fires. You are lucky she even knows that water puts out fires.


Primordial Ooze

I think you're overestimating what an 8 in Intelligence means in game terms... but I'm not going to argue the point.

Perhaps a good day to have crow's nest duty? Nachni is staying put up there for now. She sees no advantage in disobeying orders and leaving her post given that it would undoubtedly take too long to get belowdeck and she really has little clue what is going on.

Hello?


Primordial Ooze

DM Suffered a slight critical existence failure when travelling to the East side of Malaysia. Combination of 11 hour work days turning into 15 hour work days and a complete failure of internets at the hotel.

Normal service should resume in about 24 hours.


Female Tiefling - Oni Spawn Druid(aquatic)/4 - HP 35/35; AC17/19 w/shield, FF15, T12; F+6,R+3,W+8; Per+11; Init+3

So if I understand correctly, you have been shanghaied by Malaysian (corporate) Pirates.


Female Tiefling Witch 4, HP 26/26, AC 13/T13/FF10, F/R/W +2/+4/+3, Per -1

Admittedly none of my concern, but why are you in Malaysia?


Female Tiefling - Oni Spawn Druid(aquatic)/4 - HP 35/35; AC17/19 w/shield, FF15, T12; F+6,R+3,W+8; Per+11; Init+3

Er, because that is where DM VoV lives and works.

Not pirates fortunately - but was ensconced here - which we didn't get to by helicopter... but via this method which is basically jumping from a ship that's moving up and down up to a meter with the swell onto a static platform - fun.

In game update incoming... though am presently typing one handed with baby on chest.

I recommend taking a few levels as a wizard or witch so that you can just levitate next time.
