Nightflier's Midnight Game Thread

Game Master nightflier

Set in the grim world of Aryth, Nightflier's Midnight is a game that speaks of almost futile hope that shines against the darkness.


Cheliax

Hi, guys.

After several months long hiatus, I'm back. I had some RL issues to work out, and I've lost my internet connection due to underground river flooding the phone installations, but all of that has been resolved - and now I can get back to my favorite hobby and get back to boards full time.

As the first step, I've decided to restart my Midnight game. Obviously, I'm calling to all of my old players. If you guys have the time and inclination, you are more than welcome to once again share the story with me. But, I'm calling to all the other players who are interested in the grim and gritty setting such as Midnight.

Game info:

30 point buy

3 traits from my own traits list, based on Iron Heroes traits.

Kirthfinder rules for feats.

Heroic paths tailored to individual characters (by myself)

Some base classes, such as Fighter, modified to be more versatile.

Fifth level characters.

Seven players.

The game starts in Spring LA 98, seven years after the events of the last game.

Cheliax

Additional info:

Paizo material is in general allowed. That means, classes, archetypes, feats et cetera.

Some feats will be modified and some classes as well. These changes will generally be tailored to individual characters.

Dotting. Love Midnight. Will post a character later today.

Cheliax

At this time, I am looking for character concept only.

Here is the game thread for the old game.

Here is the discussion thread for the old game.


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber

Dotting this up for consideration.


Are all the new fullcasting classes still replaced with channellers?

Cheliax

Of course. Midnight still has specific casting, although I plan to allow certain new spellcasters, albeit modified, such as Summoner and Alchemist.


Like I said in the old thread, I'm back in. Same character.


Dotting thread....Solvi is ready to go...


Could either bring back a modified this dude or just start again. Depends on if Lyj comes back or not really.

Cheliax

Hmmm... Anang is one of several PCs who disappeared during the game. Furthermore, he was not a bonebearer. I would prefer that you create a new character, even if you decide to play essentially the same roll and same classes. Let's continue this in DT.


Dotting as well. Gilian is up as well.

Cheliax

Okay. So far we have Solvi, Duncan and Gilian from the old game. I think that we can expect Chops as well, since he contacted me via Facebook.

The rest of you, guys, take a note that this game has only seven open spots - and four of those are already filled. The game is not first come first served, though, and characters who are highly immersed in the game world have much more chance to get in the game than those who are "generic".

To those who haven't played with me before: Check out the game thread. You'll see how the original game progressed and you can take a certain measure of the commitment needed for this game.

Cheliax

From the old game we have:

Solvi
Duncan
Gilian
Chops

Doomed Hero will create a new character. That leaves two spots open.

I'm going to try to come up with a cool concept

Still catching up on your prior threads. If it is ok, I will plan to post a concept by Monday night, but if you need something sooner, let me know.


I have a concept for a ninja I just have one question what races are allowed.


I've got a concept for a summoner who will be with Havoc's ninja.

Cheliax

Midnight is very specific setting. There are no ninjas or summoners.

Monday is fine.

Cheliax

Right now we have 3 casters: Solvistania, Gilian and Muni the Raven - and 2 martial characters: Duncan and Chops. Also, I've got a concept for Caransil wildlander.

Cheliax

Okay, so far I've got six player characters:

Solvistania, Gilian, Muni the Raven, Chops, Duncan and Mark's character - either Ilona or a new character completely. I planed to clock this game at seven PCs, but since Muni is a raven, the party may be a little martially challenged, so I may allow one more character. I'll need to see the concepts first. Right now I am looking for the characters with at least some martial capability.

I might make a character very much like Sky'Tor...unless there is some way to bring him back from the dead without being evil :-).


I am interested and digging up information on Midnight now. Can I get a list of what classes are allowed or disallowed? Whichever is shorter.

Sky'Tor could return reincarnated, I suppose. Although that would make an issue of his white bone item, that is now bonded with Solvistania. Let's take this to DT.

Guys, applications for this game will be closed in the next 24 hours. If you do not submit the concept for the game in that time, you're out of luck. Currently, all the slots but one are filled.

Lantern Lodge

I have two concepts I've been working with.

First is a Dornish Wildlander with the Beast Heroic Path. Concept is that he is a killer, loosely affiliated with the Bear Lord, that hunts legates with his bare hands in the Chandering District. I'm envisioning some sort of relationship with Chander family - perhaps the brother of Vida's ex or the killer of one of Chander's heirs.

The second is a bit more of a stretch, given the canon of Midnight. What I'm interested in building is a giant-blooded Dornish Ancestors oracle from the Highhorn foothills. with the concept that the ancestor spirits represent the lost spirits of the Dorns. He represents an even more representation of the forces than a typical anuhlir. I like the aspect of the ancestors oracle that allows them to summon the ancestral weapon and can envision an interesting mix of the oracle mystery and the Midnight ancestral weapons. I'm thinking wasting curse if you were willing to go this route.

Let's take this to the Discussion Thread.

Discussion Thread

We have 3 players interested in the remaining party slot:

grmnbln
michelene
worcmrost

Guys, please post a concept in this thread. Only Midnight classes and races are allowed. I advise you to check out the backstories of the other players and to write a story of your own.

I will most probably leave the decision to the party vote. Please have in mind that this is the party that played together for almost two years and saw the deaths, disappearances and betrayals of five or six PCs.

When you post a concept, I'll allow the party to ask you questions and to make suggestions to you. Your character will enter the game only if the consensus is reached amongst the current players. I realize that this is unconventional, but to me this game is a shared effort and the party coherence is of the highest importance.

Thank you for your interest and may the best concept win.

P.S.

Feel free to ask me anything and everything you'd like to know.


Is this Midnight as in 3.5 Midnight with dark lord ruling and besieging everything and mostly subtle magic? Has something been done to convert it to Pathfinder?

I'm interested, but I see all the slots are full. So really Im just interested in what has been done for the setting, as i like it a lot.

Well, check out the Discussion Thread and Game Thread as well. Both are quite long.

Cheliax

grmnbln, michelene, worcmrost - if you are still interested in this game, please post here. There will be two openings, but for specific characters only, so that may not suit you. The characters will be connected in a master/servant relationship, be advised.

I am looking for Fell Warlock and his Goblin Vivisectionist servant.

Ok, you had me at Goblin Vivisectionist. What do I need to know about the background and special crunch for Midnight I need to build him (or her) around? (Better clarify, not general Midnight, just this particular character)

Can you please send me a mail? My address is i.jovanovich@gmail.com - we'll talk more about your character and some things you need to know and the rest of the party doesn't.

Sent an email so check your spam folder if it doesn't come through.

grmnbln and worcmrost - there is one spot left open. I am now looking for a Channeler with new tradition - Witch. I will be reworking Witch to fit Midnight.

If neither one posts anything in the next 24 hours, I'm gonna open new recruitment.
