Congratulations and welcome to those selected! Hope you're looking forward to this as I am. Please post character sheets in your profile or provide a link so I may review them. Any questions, let me know!


F HP30/30 AC18 T12 FF13 F3 R4 W4/6 Init+3 Perc+9/+11 Oracle 4 (Stargazer)

Here.. will finish purchasing gear and loose ends this morning.

Here's a list with links to characters (or their application posts) for those of us who want to take a look at each other:

Aranel, female elven stargazer Oracle

Chez, male human two-weapon fighter

Kowaru, male half-orc monk of the lotus

Ialda, female half-elven barbarian

Xarnethi, female human aquatic sorceress

Three women!


Yeah, I noticed the 3 females as well and the funny thing is you 3 were my first clear selections in my head, so for awhile I thought it was going to be an all female party! No other female characters applied, so I was relieved at that. Thanks for the links!

Cheliax

Wooooooo! I made it!

I'll finish the build today.

Andoran

I'll finish building my character, yay.

I'll think I'll change her name to Xarethi, I don't think the extra n is needed. Or is that a name already? Don't want to copyright infringe.


HP: 45/45 (49/49 raging), AC 16/16/15; F +6, R+2, W+4 Init. +1; Perception +10

DM, thanks for the pick! You know I love your games, even though I have a nasty habit of dying, lol.

I have to pick one trait, and that should finish off everything. Can't wait to get started.

To everyone selected, you got lucky...Lucendar is one of the very best GM's on this site!


F HP30/30 AC18 T12 FF13 F3 R4 W4/6 Init+3 Perc+9/+11 Oracle 4 (Stargazer)

I am struck by the awareness that we may not have anyone to disarm traps or unlock sealed doors hidden away in secret tombs.

Any chance someone's picking up Disable Device?

Andoran

Hmm, can't the barbarian just bash them to pieces? (lol, j/k)

Lucendar, I noticed that you went with the Z version of the name. Is that preferred over the X version? I thought the X-name sounded a little exotic, but fitting, but if you prefer the Z-name... I can adapt.


@Ialda: Thanks but too much praise. The better the characters and the rp, the more I get into the story.

@Aranel: In case you were wondering, not too many traps. As for locked doors, you can always bash them. But up to the party if someone wants to take the skill.

@Stardust: Xarnethi does sound more exotic, that's fine with me. Although no one will be able to tell unless you tell them or they see your name in writing.


HP 14/14; AC 12/12/10; F+1, R+3, W+3 Init +2, Perception +0

I know the Avatar isn't quite right, but Xarethi would probably put her hair up when in polite society (to prevent them from commenting on the green streaks or the seaweed that is often caught in it)


Ok, is it Xerathi or Xarethi? LOL...


HP 14/14; AC 12/12/10; F+1, R+3, W+3 Init +2, Perception +0

oops.... Well, it was originally Xarethi, but I somehow got the name spelled wrong. So we'll go with Xerathi so I don't have to go through the whole thing of making another profile. Sorry about that.

Edit: Fixed... Now I just need to make sure I have it spelled right in the other three places... I also need to update my equipment. I never know what to buy. :P


Players, please pick a free regional trait from the traits list that makes sense with your background.

Could someone in the party (maybe a local to Eleder) have points in Knowledge (local), so you have someone who knows their way around the city? Thanks!


HP 14/14; AC 12/12/10; F+1, R+3, W+3 Init +2, Perception +0

Hmm, do the regional traits mean we have to be from that particular region? For example, Wharf Rat is from the Cheliax book.


I was looking at this list of traits: Traits list

As long as the trait is from the regional list and it makes sense with the character's background, I am fine with it. Wharf Rat is on the list and swimming makes sense with an aquatic sorceress.


On the list, Wharf Rat is not tied to any specific region.


HP 14/14; AC 12/12/10; F+1, R+3, W+3 Init +2, Perception +0

Okay, so just to clarify, we have one trait, plus the Regional trait, which does not mean we come from that region. Its just more to flesh out the character background?


HP 12; AC 19/15/14; F +3, R +4, W +0; Init +4; Perception +0; 2-W Fighter 1

I apologize in advance for any inappropriate behaviour which Chez may demonstrate towards the fairer of the genders :)

Generally, yes, but if you pick a trait that is associated with a region, there had better be something in your background that states how you acquired it (i.e. spent many years there, born there, etc.).

I can't wait to read your letters to your father, Chez. Sounds like they are going to be most entertaining!

And DM, I am pretty sure I will be taking Artifact Hunter (Mwangi) as my regional trait.

Ok, though you were my odds on favorite to take a trait with Knowledge (local) since you are from this region. Hopefully, someone else will take it.


HP 14/14; AC 12/12/10; F+1, R+3, W+3 Init +2, Perception +0

Xarethi is also from the region, though she hasn't been involved with the local populace of Eleder for very long. Fishing and swimming and sailing have been her thing. :P


Ok, time to review sheets. Please excuse my finickiness, just easier for me.

@Xarethi:
Please list weight, height, eye and hair color in your profile.
Could you list your skills with ranks?
Is sorcerer your favored class? And if so, please state you chose extra skill point at 1st level somewhere on character sheet.
Could you list out the benefits of your feats on the sheet?
Could you paste your background into your profile? I sometimes will bring in plot points based on a character's history.
Your currency: in gp? gems? trade bars? Where do you carry your 70 gp?


HP 17/17, AC 20/16/20, F +4, R +5 W +6, Init +2, Per +7

Kowaru has been statted out. I suspect he'll be taking points in Disable Device later on, as he'll probably have the stats for it. Not at creation, though.

I will be taking Quain martial artist. I don't think he came from Quain, but it's to reflect that the masters he studied under had many different styles. Master Ping is definitely from Quain.


HP 12; AC 19/15/14; F +3, R +4, W +0; Init +4; Perception +0; 2-W Fighter 1

Wow, in my 20+ years of roleplaying, I must say this is the most charismatic group of characters I have played with. My 12 charisma is the lowest so far. I think I need to increase that now :)


HP 14/14; AC 12/12/10; F+1, R+3, W+3 Init +2, Perception +0

Yep, working on it as we speak... I have the basics there though.


@Chesley:
Please list weight, height, eye and hair color in your profile.
Could you list your skills with ranks with and without ACP?
Is fighter your favored class? And if so, please state you chose extra hit point at 1st level somewhere on character sheet.
Could you list out the benefits of your feats on the sheet?
Could you list the benefits of your traits?
Pick 1 free regional trait
If you plan on writing letters, I suggest you buy inkpen, ink, and parchment
List remaining money left and how/where you carry it


HP 14/14; AC 12/12/10; F+1, R+3, W+3 Init +2, Perception +0

Wow, Kowaru. Thought you'd be the one to take a rank in Knowledge (local). I would, if I had a more normal Intelligence. Its a shame I spent so much of my youth running around on the beach.


HP 17/17, AC 20/16/20, F +4, R +5 W +6, Init +2, Per +7

@Chesley: Worry no more! Your unfriendly neighborhood half-orc is here!

@Xarethi: Kowaru's never been to Elenar before, so it didn't make sense for him to take it. I might do that with later skill points.

~@Lucendar: Crud, favored class bonus! I always forget that. I think I'll take hp, and make sure I get the rest of that stuff you're asking about on my sheet as well.


@Kowaru:
Please list weight, height, eye and hair color in your profile.
Could you list your skills with ranks
Could you list out the benefits of your feats on the sheet and list which was your bonus feat at 1st level?
Diplomacy skill should be +4 not +3 (forgot +1 from trait)
List remaining money left and how/where you carry it

DM, that makes sense. I can certainly do that. I don't know the region that well, and didn't know if I'd qualify, lol. I will be the Know. Local Queen!


@Arenal:
Could you break down AC next to number: armor + dex + etc?
Could you list your skills with ranks?
Pick 1 regional trait and list its benefit
Could you list DC for saves for spells, like Command, next to spell?


@Ialda:
What favored class bonus did you take at 1st level? Please list.
Longspear is 2-handed weapon so you do: +4/1d8+4 damage normally, and +3/1d8+7 damage when you power attack (list these values on sheet)
Heavy Flail: +4 hit/1d10+4; +3 hit/1d10+7 when you power attack
Power attack: normally, -1 hit/+2 damage (not +1 as your sheet says); -1 hit/+3 damage with 2-handed weapons
Swim skill is +7/+6 in studded leather (-1 ACP)
Languages: List Common


HP 14/14; AC 12/12/10; F+1, R+3, W+3 Init +2, Perception +0

I should have made all the changes you requested, Lucendar. I will link a character sheet, and some images in a short while (possibly Tomorrow)


HP: 45/45 (49/49 raging), AC 16/16/15; F +6, R+2, W+4 Init. +1; Perception +10

DM, I took favored class skill point. It's under the skills spoiler in the profile. I've made the other changes. Thanks for the math help!


Xarethi Kalamnus wrote:

Wow, you're short! I was thinking of good-looking Hollywood actresses who are short and Hayden Panettiere is 5'1" as is Salma Hayek and Eva Longoria is between 5' and 5'2", so it's possible!

No problem, character looks good and ready to go.


HP: 45/45 (49/49 raging), AC 16/16/15; F +6, R+2, W+4 Init. +1; Perception +10

Kristen Bell is tiny, too, iirc, DM.


Good point!


F HP30/30 AC18 T12 FF13 F3 R4 W4/6 Init+3 Perc+9/+11 Oracle 4 (Stargazer)

+ AC updated.
+ Skills are broken down under a spoiler.
+ Regional trait added - Shackles Seafarer
+ DC added to spells that have a saving throw.

She's young too, though. By the time she's 24, maybe she'll grow another 4 to 6 inches.


HP 12; AC 19/15/14; F +3, R +4, W +0; Init +4; Perception +0; 2-W Fighter 1

I believe I have completed the sheet now.


@Chesley:
Indicate fighter is favored class and that you took +1 hp at 1st level
Need skills marked with ranks
List benefit of Ease of Faith
Your trait of Watching Taldor does not make sense with your background; it is associated with Qadira, enemies of Taldor.

Thanks, looks good.


Ok, we're almost ready to start. To those not familiar with PbPs or my style of GMing, mechanics wise, here are my guidelines:

I roll initiative for each member and the monsters and then list them in order
Unless the PC states he is actively searching, I roll Perception checks
In my world, all movement, even diagonal, costs 1 square, unless it's difficult terrain
I assume you know the PF rules and may warn you about an AoO the first time but only once (example, moving through threatened square or shooting ranged weapon in a threatened square)
I usually roll saves unless failure may result in a PC's death, then I let the player roll
If sufficient time has passed and a player has not posted in combat, he will go all defense or just lose turn or I may NPC him, given the situation
Please be patient with my maps (they will not be works of art), I don't have Maptools, I use Excel and images I find on the internet, but they will convey the general idea of positioning and area
If you're going to be absent for extended period of time, let the group know
I picked your characters mainly for their value rp-wise, so express it in play with NPCs and I think you can be quite effective in combat too
I try to be realistic with NPCs and their reactions to the players, both out of and in combat
I don't appreciate obvious metagaming in game (example a vicious looking bugbear appears and kills a king's guard in one blow and you yell out to the party: bugbears have max 27 hps, we can take him out!)
I love cinematic scenes/moments in combat so you will see them often

Well, that's it for now. Please feel free to comment on my style/guidelines, as I'm always looking to improve.


HP 14/14; AC 12/12/10; F+1, R+3, W+3 Init +2, Perception +0

Coolness

On a side note. I had messed up on my skill ranks, I thought I had 2 -1 +1 = 2, but with the human and favored class bonuses, I actually had 2 -1 +2. So I put it back in handle animal. Should be right now.

Whoops. I only read the trait summary for that... my bad.

All is fixed / amended now.


Great, you all look ready...so here is the Campaign thread! Campaign


HP 17/17, AC 20/16/20, F +4, R +5 W +6, Init +2, Per +7

Doesn't look like any of us have problems posting on weekends. ;)


HP 14/14; AC 12/12/10; F+1, R+3, W+3 Init +2, Perception +0

I might, occasionally. Today is a rare day off. :P
