Okay, here we go.

The game is 28 point buy.

If you want, it can be gestalt.

No psionics, for now, except Soulknife.

Races will be a little modified according to Pathfinder rules. Tell me what you want to play, and I'll post modifications.

That's it for now.


I'm partial to a changeling. Because they're awesome. Are smilodan's classes or APG classes available?

SmiloDan's classes are indeed available. Same goes for APG.

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

I'm thinking Cavalier of House Deinith, maybe dragonmarked. Order of the Cocatrice or Order of the Shield.


It took a lot of thinking, but I'm set for a changeling inquisitor of an as yet unspecified deity and domain. Seems ideal. Will browse Eberron's gods in a bit.

Oh, and er...crap. I forgot what I was going to say.

Dotting...I will look at the Eberron stuff later today.

Sovereign Court

I don't know a lot about Eberron, but I've had a quick look. I'm thinking of a private investigator, specialising in finding missing people and objects, probably a Diviner.

male Human (barely, he he)

Hey I have not done psionics in a while, so I am thinking of doing the soulknife, is that ok with everyone?

What a coincidence. The main Ebberon character I have right now is also a private investigator, although more of the Marlowe, hit the streets personally and occasionally get into a knife fight with an angry thug type. Urban Ranger, to be specific.

Anyway, if no one else minds, I'll be going for a Ranger, eventually Ranger/Rogue/Master Inquisitive. Permission to use the Urban Ranger variant?

EDIT: Go ahead, Eric. If you can, I recommend taking a look at the alternate class abilities for Kalashtar in Races of Ebberon.

Male Mostly Human

Well, before I even bother putting together a character, we ought to at least know where we're starting at and the theme/feel we're going for in 'Neo-Eberron'. I assume we're Pathfindering it?

Dark Archive

Okay, folks - addendum to the first post:

The game is 28 point buy.

If you want, it can be gestalt.

No psionics, for now, except Soulknife. All psionic stuff is to be from Dreamscarred Press. They have Pathfinder Soulknife.

Races will be a little modified according to Pathfinder rules. Tell me what you want to play, and I'll post modifications.

The traits from Pathfinder and Iron Heroes can be used, as well as stuff from Iron Kingdoms.

Now, attention, please: all of you will be members of the crew of elemental airship. Your characters can hail from Eberron or Iron Kingdoms. Your characters will be security forces of the airship, not officers, at least in the beginning. There will be an option for you to buy out the ship for yourselves. What do you think of this idea?

Dark Archive

Addendum 2:

You are encouraged to play some of the new warforged variants from the Monster Manuals and splatbooks. Of course, we will use Pathfinder.

The only variant playable warforged I can find are the scouts and psiforged, are there any others I am missing?

There is charger in the same monster manual, but he is LA +4 I think and there are other variants depending on the feats you take.

Anyway, I need that at least one of you play a prototype warforged. We can build it together in accordance to the needs of the class you wish to play. For instance, in my RL Eberron game, one of the guys played prototype scout warforged, designed to look more like a monkey, who had prehensile tail. He played Soulknife/Combat Rogue.


Male dwarven kineticist 3

I wanted to maybe play a warforged spellhunter or if this turns into a gestalt warforged spellhunter/Inquisitor. Not sure how to redesign a warforged for that but I liked the idea of the implacible security guard walking toward the terrified spellcaster as spells just bounce off him and then calmly picking them up and throwing them over the side of the ship.

In my game there are basically two main warforged variants: Str +2, Con +2, Cha -2 and Str +2, Int +2, Cha -2 - but one guy created warforged with golden plating and therefore without armor bonus, but he got to play +4 Cha, -2 Con. So, it's up to you to create your subtype any way you want it.

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

Personally I'd rather single class than gestalt. Gold plating?...ahh Pimpforged Bards.

Thanks, I will get to work on him.

also, single class for me too.


Male dwarven kineticist 3

I've done the same thing I always do thinking up characters and completely changed my mind four or five times but I think I've settled now on a Warforged Monk. Its been years since I had a monk character and I just like the idea.

In that case, I'll go with a Warlock, if you don't mind. Standard socially-focused conman type, only signed on to get out of Sharn before a group of particularly-dissatisfied customers killed him, you get the idea.

Dark Archive

The game will start in Sharn. A new model of airship with two bound elementals is to go on it's maiden voyage to Xendric. The ship is owned by Darkstar Company - a private enterprise with mysterious capital in no way connected to trading houses. The ship is called "Darkstar One".

I like the ship security concept, fits right in with my character concept, although I'll lose out on the mounted stuff for cavalier.

If we're not likely to be landbound much could I swap the Cavalier's mount for an animal companion and let the charge abilities work unmounted?

I know that you really want to play cavalier, since you were interested to play it in my Midnight game, but keep in mind that for the greatest part of this game you will not have an access to a mount.

I think that shouldn't be a problem. Which cavalier you want to play? APG version?

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

Yup, order of the shield seems like the perfect bodyguard.The guy who would be assigned to ensuring VIP's got where they were going safely. Although the order of the cockatrice is appealing too. Sort of the heart of the crew type.


Gah, not feeling so good today. Must be something I ate.

Anyway, no changes to the Eberron chameleon I suppose? I'll start making my chameleon inquisitor in a bit. An inquisitor of The Traveler, with the Travel domain methinks. Will have to reconcile her being there on the ship though.


Crap. changeling I mean. not chameleon, changeling. Yeesh, I keep switching the two every time.

There are some changes, but it's very late here, so I'll post them tomorrow.

If you can rework cavalier to work well with standard animal companion, you're on.

I should be just about done with my sheet now, other than equipment. So, how much starting gold do warlocks get anyway?

EDIT: Wait, this ship's completely unrelated to Lyrander? We're going to get hit by lightning an improbable amount of times, aren't we?

Just having some RL issues now, so I will get him ready asap, might not be until tomorrow.

Okay, sorry for being such a drag. Of the last nine days, worked six of them with three more working days to go before my actual first week end. I have none f the Eberron books and know nothing about the setting.

So in short, bugger. Will do my best with Paizo stuff. Though would Iron Kingdoms stuff be allowed, since that stuff I do have? If not Paizo for me. :)

Also posting to show I really am still interested.

Cheers!


Eric Swanson here,

Yah, I beat Sunset

Ha ha, just kidding, he he

Here is the start of my char.

Nightflier,

a couple of questions, the Kalashtar Soulknife Racial sub levels show d8 HD while the base class is d10 HD, which should I use? Also, the feat Wpn Focus Mindblade is listed for the Racial sub level, but not in the base class for soulknife. Should I apply the feat or not?

For reference, both of those were class features of the 3.5 version of the class, and it probably wouldn't be that off-balancing to just switch the relevant abilities (assuming they didn't change too much between editions).

Of course Nightflier's got the final word on it, but that's my say.

Well Davi, if I was doing it, I would keep the d10 hd, and lose the Wpn focus feat, thats just me though.

Also since no psionics, means power points change to times per day, but that makes it easier.

That's what I meant, really. Just replace the stuff that is in this version, and ignore the other stuff.

Also, the 3.5 version of the Soulknife also had a d10 hit die, so you're probably going to take the reduction in hit die, since that's probably part of how they balanced the alternate class feature in 3.5.

Oh, and you've only got what, two power points total? Unless the alternative class feature gives you something to do with them besides go into psionic focus, I don't think Nightflier's going to mind particularly much.

Thanks, I did what you suggested.

Well, according to the Align Mind Blade function, it requires a power point to activate it. So currently, I can use it 2/day, it lasts for 1 round. It replace the Wild Talent/Psionic Talent feat, so he loses 2 power points there.

Eric, Davi's suggestions are okay. You can keep both d10 for hp and the feat.

Sunset, you can create your character using Iron Kingdoms, or even some other setting.

Addendum 3: I'll remind you that I'm giving a bonus feat for well written background, as usual for my games.


Fem Elf Bard 3

Thank you for the reply nightflier. *bows*

Now, when you say "Iron Kingdoms is allowed" what are the limits to what is allowed?

Could I play say,

A blighted Trollkin form the midnight Isles?

Or,

A Satyxian Reaver Witch Pirate Captain? (Well, a gal's gotta dream, right matey?)

As two extreme examples of what might be possible. How would you go about entwining Arcane-mechanika into your reality, me making the assumption you don't have the rules to such? An Iron Kingdoms War-jack could be an over powering thing.

Just looking for the edges of the game, as it were.

As for 'back story'?

May you enjoy having a read of this,

Hunters, Hunted

And welcome to my own little corner of the vast fun that is the "Iron Kingdoms"

Again, sorry for not actually being in a position to generate a character, my work schedule sucks atm.

Cheers!

EDIT: Also Mark Thomas, what is "utorrent" and will I get in trouble for asking about it?

Dark Archive

You can play anything you want, as long as it's LA +0 or LA +1. You just have to point me to the appropriate page number.

Sorry for taking so long, I've been trying to get time to read up on Eberron. I'm thinking of keeping with my idea of a private investigator... perhaps he has been working on a particular case for a long time (since I'm leaning towards a Khorvaire elf, this could be decades or longer); someone had gone missing with hardly any leads as to their location, for years he searched for them finding only answers that lead to more questions, but recently a clue surfaced leading to Xendrik... obviously, getting there to continue the investigation would be prohibitively expensive, so he signed onto the security detachment of the next airship traveling there.

As an aside, are you sure that you want to mix Pathfinder and Iron Heroes traits? PF traits are designed to be roughly equal to half a feat, while the IH ones are about two feats.

I'm gonna judge on case by case basis. Overpowered characters are not an issue, really. I'm more concerned that the character is well thought out. So if you manage to incorporate trait into your background it will probably be fine by me.

Um, how do I get you to the pages I need to get you too? Do you have the books? Hope my Hunters, Hunted gives you a ride for your time/money spent. ^_^

Won't be able to do anything about character for at least another four days though. V_V
