Yeah, I guess Masterworking it and calling it "greenstone" instead of jade is the easiest option.

Yes, I agree that's best. Jade is really precious, but nobody would think twice about green rock.

I got Gotas' background up. Let me know if anythings missing, needs to be added, etc etc.

Otherwise I think he is ready to go =)

Stats look good. Some fine tuning on background. You're from Haran? Rakshasa are rare there, but much more common in Injorin. It might suit your background better to have come from Marabaya.

Having an ambition to form your own merc company is good. How does being in the Watch further that goal? Are you trying to study tactics? The Captain has a reputation as a brilliant officer. Or just getting some idea of how different people and styles of fighting can work together? Or working on getting a reputation for being able to survive anything?

Okay, it looks all good. It's interesting to see the problems with the church of Iomedae from the other side of that conflict.

Based on your history and moral code I foresee some interesting encounters in your future. :)

Awesome! Let me know which member of the watch I will be a part of/when I can get started.


I was gonna suggest using Blood Obsidian from the issue of Dragon detailing the Dark Sun setting, just reduced.

Weapons made from it have a natural +1 to damage, hardness 12 and cost 2k gold more than their normal counterparts.

going with a Jade version might cost 1k, same hardness, no bonus to dmg.

But masterwork seems good too, lol


I picked Haran mostly for the oriental feel sense it has some influence culture wise on Gotas' character. Rakshasa have that feel too so I figured they would be from there.

Being in the warrens watch is good for his goal. Warrens has cheap land values, for when he buys a company base. Getting on the good side of the city guard and political powers will help him when he chooses to start up. Learning, training, and scouting potential in the warrens is high. As you said building a reputation is important too. In short the warrens watch is a perfect proving ground and good place to get in on the ground floor for his goal. Ideally he would start up his merc company after the warrens has been cleaned up, being able to claim he helped do that would solidify his companies foundation.

So yeah he will be invested in the watch ;)

Oops, sorry Ross. :/


What languages are common, uncommon, not in existance from Pathfinder norm?

Good reasons for being in the watch, yes.

Injorin has more of an Indian/Malaysian feel while Haran is more Asian. From reading your background I don't think the rakshasa angle is that important. It reads as if any Oni will do. If that's the case then keep him as being from Haran. Otherwise I think Injorin is the place where he should be from. Since both of them are very closed countries with only one port officially open to foreigners there isn't a lot of mixing of culture-specific creatures and rakshasa are from Injorin. But like I said, reading that background it seems like any Oni will do since he himself has no rakshasa specific traits. We don't even have to specify what kind of oni, only that he surprisingly doesn't share any of the obvious traits of that parent.

All languages that are pathfinder norm are present. Within the warrens themselves Undercommon, Orc, Goblin, Draconic are the most commonly spoken languages other than common.

James Brightblood should check in over in the discussion thread to let me know you're ready to be introduced.


Uru, Imoa, Kazekage, and Michael Falcon's characters are all works in progress. Once you guys are done with your characters then you'll be worked into the game. :)


His sorcerer bloodline is rakshasa. Thats kinda the reason. xP

Let me know when he can jump in.


It may sounds silly, but the only thing keeping me from finishing is the choice between Ranger and Druid.

The Druid is a better flavor choice, but I'll suffer far worse from MAD due to two spellcasting stats. I'll also lose skillpoints. Oh, and I hate Wildshape (don't ask me why)

Ranger makes sure I get full saves and BAB and more skillpoints. The question however, is how much I'll use that full BAB, especially since I'm limited on armor due to arcane spell failure and a ranged (Half) Orc seems just wrong to me.


My suggestion to you is do the same thing I am doing. Get the arcane armor feats. Gives you access to light armor now and medium armor later. It will let you cast spells without worry. Also their is an armor enchantment that folds your armor into a cloak clasp, you could always use that if you have the cash to buy it. I would take the setting into account, sometimes your guy is going to be in tight spots so I would say being melee capable would only help. Anyways it depends on play style too.

Personally I would go ranger over druid with your build.


I agree with Gotas here. Then you don't have to worry about it.


Uru,
Unless things have changed, you'll be in unit one. We have two front line types in Avlar and Kolm. I'm a hit n run striker, while Meredian is our caster. If you go Ranger, you and I can team up to wreck havoc on our enemies.

Shadow Lodge

Well, I see nothing wrong with a ranged Half-Orc. Might be because I made a Half-Orc Wizard in 3.5 and in Neverwinter Nights Online...

Perhaps you should take a look at the Haramaki and Silken Ceremonial armors from Ultimate Combat. Not the most defensive option, but no Arcane Spell Chance Failure is nice.

**Flexes**


Oh the start isn't the problem, wearing an armored kilt, which also has 0% spell failure, just like my mithral buckler (another positive of ranger). Hmm, 3.5 stuff might be ok? How about the Twilight armor enhancement? (worth a +1 bonus, eats 10% spell failure)

As far as tight spots go, I'm a Scarred Witch Doctor, 18 Con goes a long way.

Kal, I'm also a Witch, so I'll still be throwing around hexes and sowing mischief besides switch-hitting.

As for the ranged thing, I was mostly referring to ranged weapons, not spells.

I'll go ranger, so I'll fix my stuff.

Shadow Lodge

So was I. I think I assumed you were talking about ranged in general because it didn't seem right for half-orcs, and I referred to my Wizard to show that going against type can be fun.

A miscommunication is at fault, I think.

Ah. Well, he can still be from Haran, but he would have dealt with a lot of crap there for being a half-breed. They're weird about this stuff. His father would have had to be a foreigner and as such would have had extremely limited power and influence and wouldn't be allowed to travel beyond the city of Akkaido. Gotas, being half native could have passed with a reasonable bribe.

The Tataka guy though should either be not a rakshasa or Gotas ran into him somewhere other than Haran. Two rakshasa is a bit much in a place where one is extremely rare. It still works if Tataka is some other kind of Oni who is treating Gotas as if he were an Oni himself because of his rakshasa blood.

And that about does it for background. So you can head over to the discussion thread and will be introduced with the other new recruits.


Uru, sounds like you have things figured out, so no need to offer advice after all. :)


Took longer than anticipated, but Uru is finally done


I do believe that this character is ready for action!


Uru, you're all set. Head over to the discussion thread. because you're joining unit one who are about to do something foolhardy and not likely to go back to the guardhouse anytime soon we'll do something a little different for your intro.


Kazekage, you're all set and can head over to the discussion thread. You can arrive at the guardhouse whenever you like.:)
