Current Map


151 to 200 of 240 << first < prev | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | next > last >>

I am going to keep recruitment open through tomorrow night. If anyone else is interested, at least have a post with a concept in before the end of Tuesday and have that character sheet done by the end of the weekend.


Ser Arak's sheet was actually done, I posted it in the thread a couple of pages back, but now its conveniently available in this alias. I shall keep my fingers crossed! Good luck everyone.

Sheesh try to find an avatar of a non screaming orc :p


Thanks Arak, I'll update that the next time!


Heck with finding an orc avatar. Try finding a fetchling or grippli avatar. Your choices are ghost/vampire for one and boggard for the other.


hay i made my sheet sum number of post a go.

I think he wants an "on-site sheet", Kinda like this.


Hmmm, I am thinking of a new spell for my character:

Summon Bug
Level: 0
Standard Action
Components: Dead Bug

This spell conjures a single large fly which flies around annoyingly but has no effect on gameplay. Grippli characters may attempt to catch the fly with their tongues. Catching 10 such flies equals a nutritious meal.


I managed to find a slightly dignified non-screaming orc/half-orc... :)

This is Lueck, a submission for markofbane. He is a half-orc ranger (spirit ranger archetype). For progression, I was planning on just keeping him as a ranger.


True, but he looks a bit too old, and for an orc he's a bit of a looker, lol.

Any plans for dealing with PC death? E.g. Will the same player be allowed to make a new PC, resurrections etc etc?

Basically here are my thoughts:

1. I have warned everyone to be careful
2. Gave good stats and Hero Points
3. There are some in game things that could help with recovering from death, along with some that will hasten it :)

We'll see when we get to it, but the one thing I know I do not want is the same character labelled #2. I'd like some consequence to dying and if its too easy to continue with a new guy then I feel like the edge is taken off somewhat.

I'll probably put it to a vote when the 6 are chosen on how to proceed.

I don't have a problem with that, just wanted some indication on whether I should start contemplating a back-up character (being the optimistic kind I assume I'll get chosen :)) as I quite like making PCs.

But you're right, might as well cross that bridge when we get to it...

Sheet complete.


Sheet and background complete.

Jokbur is the ultimate scout. He has concentrated all his primary stat and all his feats on avoiding surprise. He can detect and disable devices, including magic ones. When he multiclasses into zen archer, his combat power will catch up.

Check your feats. Combat expertise requires 13 Int I think.

One way around this is 2 levels in Lore Warden.

Thanks for the catch. I went back and forth between Dazzling Display/Shatter Defenses and Improved/Greater Feint. I ultimately chose the latter because it has party synergy. I'm contemplating switching deity to Shelyn and using rapier instead, but undead love piercing weapons.

Thoughts?

Lantern Lodge

Due to joining a Solo campaign, and a PFS campaign, I am going to bow out. I love the idea pf PFS, and Solo is kinda the unicorn of PbPs... Sorry.

I am sort of confused what you are going with with the 20 Cha as a paladin, other than mega saves. I assume you are planning on going bard, oracle or sorcerer later since the DM has barred summoner. Dazzling Display is better if you are planning on not being a front liner.

Extra charisma does the following for him.

10 lay on hands = raise dead w/ ultimate mercy (no material component if he takes temp negative level). Lay on hands also fuel warrior of holy light abilities.

He will be defensive in most fights, and smite against major threats (hopefully)

He will greater feint to debuff for party.


Ser Arak of the Warrens wrote:

Well, with a charisma of 10, he probably is. I was also looking for a picture with a rather 'placid' expression to go along with his spirit ranger archetype.


Ah - paladin is one of those classes I have never played. I had my frog's charisma higher when I was considering paladin and/or cleric levels. Then I decided on Inquisitor which does not need charisma as much and let me switch the points to Con.


Just done with my home game. About another 24 hours for any additional interest then I will close recruitment and begin to review. I will update the list of applicants tomorrow with the additions and drop outs.

Sunday night will be final decision time.


Just curious about the level bonuses (or boni).
If I select ranged or melee at first level for a +1 bonus, is it similar to an enchantment bonus of +1 to hit AND damage, or to hit only?
As a monk can armor bonus stack with a monks natural armor? Is the armor/shield bonus touch and flatfooted too, or just AC?


Ranged and melee count as an enchantment bonus to your weapon, so +1 to hit and damage (but does not make your weapon magical)

Armor bonus is an armor enchantment bonus and does not make your armor magical. It can be applied even without armor. It increases your armor bonus and would increase your Flatfooted AC.

Shield Enchantment Bonus increases your shield bonus only if you are wielding a shield. It would increase your flat-footed AC.

Save bonus is a resistance bonus and would not stack with any other resistance bonus.

Natural armor is a separate bonus to AC so is not affected by any of these.


Don't wanna nit pick too much, but you keep saying enchantment bonus. There's no such thing, I assume you are intending to say enhancement bonus. Is this correct?


i am out i have a campaign rite now so good by.

Uh Right. Late night and such. Enhancement bonus for Weapons and Armor. Resistance Bonus for saves. Also Enhancement bonus for stats. Sorry about the confusion.

Cool, thanks. Sorry if that was an annoying question, I appreciate the answer ^_^


Not annoying at all, and glad to have it asked as I was not keeping it consistent.

Qadira

Numair revised moderately to respond to the expected hardcore dungeon. New Numair will be smiting frequently, and keeping attention focused on him through moderately lower AC and higher damage output.

Pertinent changes:
Iomedae replaced Sarenrae
Oathbound (Vengeance) archetype replaced Undead Scourge
Greatsword replaced sword & shield
Weapon Focus & Power Attack replaced Combat Expertise & Improved Feint
Stats Adjusted


Just to comment on divine and arcane casters. The level choices do not complement a straight caster as well. They have to choose two of the follwing three: melee, ranged, shield. If an option was allowed to increase the DC of saving throws by .5 (1 seems too much) and give a bonus to spell penetration rolls against spell resistance (1 seems right), possibly a bonus to channeled energy or one extra channel energy per day (half of a feat), it would balance spellcasters out more. Maybe even allow a hp or skill point choice (like an FC bonus).

My two cp. I know we are breaking new ground here.


Outright increasing DCs is a bad idea. That's the fastest way to full blown caster dominance.

Adding to Spell Penetration, Concentration checks, additional domain/school ability uses, reduction in certain metamagic costs, or something like that would be less dangerous to the game.


I appreciate the comments, but the reason for these bonus is to remove the most common magic items. If there were other items that gave spell casters spell penetration or extra channels than that might be added as a choice.

As is even a wizard has some good choices. Ranged for rays, Saves, melee for touch attacks (for the to hit at least), armor for AC and I have seen mithril shields worn.

And as it is, it is a "free" bonus even if they don't use it as much or at all. As it is I chose 5 bonuses to choose from for every 4 levels to make a harder choice (potentially).

We'll see how it all works out, and thanks for everyone here who is willing to give it a shot.


90 minutes for recruitment close


In case I hadn't mentioned it, I love your fix for reducing the christmas tree effect. It's simple and looks like it will be very effective.


Qui is hopping up and down in anticipation. But whenever anyone looks his way, he just shakes his froggy head. He then points at the orc - He did it, its his fault.


"Vhat ist goink on herre? Who ist dis Kirmidt von Frauggenstein?"


Thanks everyone for your applications. Some really great ones at first glance. Now for a closer look!


Qui glances at the strange godlike individual who appears to be watching the group.
Don't look too close at the orcs, I hear they don't bathe very often.

He then looks over at the tall human fighter:
Entschuldigen Sie mir, ich verstehe dich nicht.

I'm a frog, I don't have a sole. I have pads on my feet though if that helps.

I have to remove myself from consideration. Really wanted to get in this game, but getting my own pbp game off the ground took to many cycles to finish up my PC.

Good luck!


This recruitment thread just caught my eye. But I realize I am half a day past the deadline. Sorry.

I have been playing with an idea for a rogue that might fit really well in this campaign, and I see no rogues have been submitted yet. So, I will submit my concept in hopes that the void in the rogue category gets her a late review.

If you are intrigued enough to answer a couple of build questions, I will have her character sheet complete within two hours (of having my questions answered):

Smite aka Buttercup:
Female Atomie Rogue
Buttercup was born to a long line of valiant defenders of the noble fey, the Pixie and Nixie and Dryad Queens. For centuries they have served as scouts, border patrol, and personal guards to royalty.

But as the centuries advance, so does the unrestrained propagation of humans. "Humans, bah!" she often heard her father say, "what do they offer the world? Not beauty, certainly. Not magical talents. Just an unending ability to make more of themselves and their dull normalness." Every year the humans advanced, past the sacred trees of the dryads and the blessed rivers of the nixies. And every year the magic of the Twilight Grove was forced further back.

Buttercup's father would go the Solstice Mushroom Council and plead every year to be allowed to bring a troop of his finest Atomie warriors to defeat the Evil Queen Malice (or any appropriately evil human overlord). The council would pretend to consider his advice. But every year the festivities went on, and no plan was ever enacted.

One year Buttercup went to eavesdrop on the council meeting. What she heard there made the tips of her pointed ears burn. Once her noble father had left the Circle, she heard the noble fey laughing at him! Laughing at her valiant father! Belittling his size, and joking about how amusing it was to keep such earnest little warriors around before returning to their games and fermented nectar.

Buttercup burned. She knew her father was right! Something had to be done about Evil Queen Malice and her endlessly breeding humans. But she couldn't bear to break his heart, with the words the Council had shared after he was out of earshot. But what to do? If they wouldn't listen to him, they surely wouldn't listen to her.

Quickly she dashed off a note to her father, that she was off to seek battle experience, and hopefully allies against Queen Malice.

With her few possessions she set off in a random direction, hoping for a chance to prove herself in battle, and maybe find some help from some of the elves or gnomes that might remember their ties to the fey.

~~

Buttercup is extremely earnest for a fey. She thinks of herself as a mighty warrior, and will be insulted if you refer to her as a rogue. She calls her abilities "scouting." Smite, as she now calls herself, will never back down from a fight, and will challenge anyone to a duel for any slight to her honor. (After the challenge is issued, she will frequently "reduce person" on them so the fight is more fair.)

She is extremely devoted to Desna and Freedom and dedicated to defending all fey. She will probably take ranks in Inquisitor.

Initially, she is highly suspicious of humans, but if the party has some she will probably soften to them once she learns humans are not all the same. She will be very well inclined towards gnomes and elves. She knows she has to get battle experience and allies before returning to defend her homeland, so she doesn't expect to go back anytime soon.

~~
Build Questions:
1. Is an Atomie allowable? Here is the link:
http://www.d20pfsrd.com/bestiary/monster-listings/fey/atomie

2. If so, how many RP will you rate it at?

3. Shall I leave all the stats "as is" for an NPC atomie, or shall I adjust using whatever point buy remains? Either way is fine, its just so I know what to work with.

4.If it is too high, can we put some of the natural abilities on hold, for her to regain as feats at later levels?

I think that's basically it. Clearly she's not a fighter (although she thinks she is.) She'll be more of a scout and trapper for the party.

I hope you like Buttercup's concept. And I hope the party's need for a rogue might compensate for the late submission. Thanks for your consideration.


Apocalypso Sorry just too late. There are no rogues but two trap finding classes currently to fit that niche. I also wasn't going to include any 3PP even Frog God stuff.


Thanks for looking. Have fun!


Ok started working through the character sheet with a little extra eye for detail. I plan on getting all of these reviewed over the next couple of days:

Uhtred Uhtredsson:
Your sheet looks good, no additional questions at this time

Tashtal ul-Voshnak:

A couple issues I saw:

15 point buy with an 8 Rp race=23 Character points (12 short)

No mention of 1st level choice (melee, saves, armor, etc)

No background adjustment for Rappan Athuk. I would like everyone to have some sort of reason for risking their lives. If it is to make the area safer that is fine, but would like it made clear your goals.

Ariana Rosencruz:

Haramaki armor combined with armor kit would make it medium armor slowing you to 20ft speed.

You should have +1 more to initiative due to Class Ability of diviner

You should have +1 more skill points/Level for being human (2+5Int+1Human)

I Like how you flavored traits and tied it into your background, very nice!

Jonas Hearth:

Does your sheet list your speed at 20' somewhere? Didn't see it unless I missed it

Equipment - What is the thought on the small Lucerne hammer? Don't forget you would need a Feat for it as it is an exotic weapon. is Torch name of the warhammer? I didn't understand what that was either.

Do forget to include a spot for listing bonus chosen every level (melee, armor, shield, etc)

Eugeni:

First off, it was easy to read and find things, everything spelled out nice! Makes looking through the sheet very easy and appreciated

Point buy is off - 15 Race with 22 BP=37 (Strength changed to 14 or Wisdom to 10?)

Melee is off - 15 Str is still only +2, need to adjust throughout your sheet.

Paladin has good will saves and your listed wisdom is +1 so should be a total of +3 unless you lower your Wisdom to get your point buy correct then it will be a +2 instead of 0

Might be good to have a note for yourself that your falchion is a 2-handed weapon so you adjust your AC when wielding it instead of warhammer/shield. (For in game reasons, this might not be a big deal as I like status updates each post which will be explained once I have chosen the group)

Since you picked melee enhancement, remember its +1 to hit and damage. But it doesn't affect range, so with a dagger in hand you would get it, but not if you threw it.

Andoran

Sheet adjusted to reflect the comments made :)


I made a few minor adjustments if you are looking at Qui. Just cleaned up some stuff in his background to get the unusual trait in their more clearly.
