OOC thread for Nix's Serpent Skull campaign.


Female Mwangi Elf Wizard(Enhancement)/1 - HP 10/11; AC13,T13,FF10; F+1,R+3,W+2/+4

Thanks Nix. I look forward to this. Thanks a million for taking over.

Also, if you can get a simple Gameplay tab up so that we can dot it, that makes tracking the campaign easier. For some reason OOC posts do not cause the campaign to show up under the Campaign Tab on my main character's page.

Thanks again.


Checking in.
Thanks for taking this over Nix, I feel that this group has lots of potential. Looking forward to the gameplay.


Init +3, Perception +5, AC 18/13/15, CMD 15, HP 8, Fort 0/Ref 5/ Will 1

Checking in!


I'm almost finished with my first read through of the first AP. I still have a bit to read of the final area, and I need to read the first part of book 2 for the transition.

We are going to need an overland map to handle exploration of the island, updated as with the party's progress. I would prefer to use Google Drive for this. If this is okay with everyone, I'll need you all to PM me a email address to send the share invite to.

For each character, I need to know:
1. Which port/country you boarded in. Check the Player's Guide for a list. (This should correspond to your campaign trait.)
2. Why are you traveling to Eledor (the capital of Sargava)? (This might correspond to your campaign trait.)
3. Do you have any ties or relations to any organizations, positive of negative?


I'm cool with using GDrive; I'll PM you my email shortly.
Linard boarded the Jenivere in Corentyn.
He originates from Sargava and is now returning home after tuition in a temple of Abadar overseas. (Colonial campaign trait)
Linard is a member of Church of Abadar and is familiar with some of the old nobility in Eleder. He despises anything linked to House Thrune and devil-worshipping.


Female Mwangi Elf Wizard(Enhancement)/1 - HP 10/11; AC13,T13,FF10; F+1,R+3,W+2/+4

Google Drive works - I assume that is what I use in my campaign.

Boarded In Port Peril.

She is from the Mwangi and desires to find other tribes of Ekujae elves. She is heading to Sargava as a first step in finding other Mwangi elves since her village was destroyed by slavers over 20 years earlier.

No direct ties although she hates slavers and Cheliax in particular for have destroyed her village and family and having forced her into slavery for nearly a dozen years.

--> See my background for more info.


Init +3, Perception +5, AC 18/13/15, CMD 15, HP 8, Fort 0/Ref 5/ Will 1

Boarded in Cheliax and headed to the Mwangi Expanse as an archaeologist to document the people, wildlife, and culture. He is also looking for treasure and artifacts. Indiana Jones meets Ernest Hemingway!

Background:

Harper Montajay II was born a noble in the large city of Absalom. He was educated in some of the most prestigous schools in the city. The only problem was his itch for adventure. This itch was nurtured by a street rat he befriended and spent time with in secret. Harper would sneak out and "adventure" with the street rat and his tribe of misfits. It was during these year that he learned to lie, steal, pick locks, and sneak. After being arrested for thievery, Harper was kept under a watchful eye by his parents and soon lost contact with the young street rat who had taught Harper so much.
Harper spent the next few years trying to be what his parents wanted him to be. He excelled in school and was the captain of the local archery team. After Prep school, he was accepted to the prestigous Arcanamirium Academy and studied the arcane arts as well archaeology. On a six month excursion to Osirion with his school, he found his true calling in life. His years on the streets served him well and he was at home in the catacombs and pyramids.
Harper spent the last year in the Academy studying history. One geographical location grabbed his attention over all of the rest: the Mawangi Expanse. The rich history and unknown lore coupled with the chance to find exotic artifacts called to his itch for adventure. Equipped with mundane explorer gear and a map of the Mwangi Expanse, Harper has set off to explore the untamed jungles.

Corentyn as the boarding city, then?


Init +3, Perception +5, AC 18/13/15, CMD 15, HP 8, Fort 0/Ref 5/ Will 1

Yes.


Ok, looks like we will need 2 more players to get the party up to 5. I'll put up a recruitment thread after my placement test tomorrow.


Female Mwangi Elf Wizard(Enhancement)/1 - HP 10/11; AC13,T13,FF10; F+1,R+3,W+2/+4

I shot a PM to Angada, but have not heard back from him. Let me look at the recruitment thread from the old campaign to see if there is anyone there who might fit in.

Also Nix, I emailed you. If you could allow both of my accounts to have access, that would be preferred. I have a gmail account that I use to access all the stuff on the Google Drive, but I do not check that email regularly. I have a yahoo account that I sent you before that is my regular email that I check daily.

_____________

EDIT -
Just looked at the old recruitment from DM Poisonblade, not a lot there. Do you want to take the time to do a recruitment? I had one person who PMed me that he was interested, and I can just post a link to the OOC if anyone is interested on the OOCs for several of my other games that have good players.

That should have been done already, it is showing me that you have access.

If you have someone interested, direct them to this thread. Overall, I'd prefer more proven players. Do you think anyone would be interested? That would get us up to my target of 5 players. If not I'll put up a recruitment thread.


Male Elf Barbarian 1 (Invulnerable Rager)

Hey, I'm in a game with your bard here. This is a character I used for another SS campaign that didn't last. I believe the profile needs some cleaning up to get it back to starting first level, but the basics are there


Aasimar Init: +3 / Percep +13/Sense Motive +8/ Darkvision 60' CMD=13 Cleric 2 Hit Points: 15/15 AC18/ff17/t11 F+5/R+2/W +8 Channel 4/6

I have also heard there is an opening through the grapevine (or bardvine like kalis).

I could do an aasimar--angelkin paladin. Haven't finished his background.

I would also have an aasimar melee cleric that has stalled in a campaign too. Here his is. He is an 'instinctive' cleric that refuses to study religion (0 levels of Kn:religion). Just wants to kill evil at swordpoint. Would probably replace rich parents with another trait.


HP: 35/35, AC: 18:12:16, CMD: 20 Saves: 5:3:2 +2Enchant Skills: Dip: +7, Per +11, Sense +9, Stealth, +7,

Heard there is an opening through the same grapevine as Luther Lightblade.

As for me, I come from a Serpents skull game that died in less than a week.

You were looking for a melee character, well Changeling Fighter(Brawler) can fit the bill and a piece of my background is already written, it just needs finishing.

May I ask for Character creation rules?

Edit: Added more to my background.

Previous Campaign Recruitment Guidelines wrote:


20 point buy.

First level.

All current Pathfinder source books but Ultimate Equipment (I don’t have it yet).

All races, all classes.

There must be unified alignment trend on the Good or Evil axis among the characters.

150 starting gp for all players. Note that you will not be starting with your equipment right away.

1 campaign trait, 1 other trait.

Minimum posts, 3 per week.

The opening scene has a backdrop that all characters have booked passage on a ship for one reason or another. You must select a port of call where you boarded the Jenivere. Magnimar, Kintargo, Pezzack, Corentyn, Illizmagorti, Ollo, Quent, Port Peril, Bloodcove, Senghor, or Elder are the ports that you may choose from.

You will need to also have a background of 50-200 words. You are to include why your character was on the ship.

I suggest at least one player be good at using Diplomacy. It comes up a lot in this AP.

DM Nix - let us know if you want anything different. The 150 gold is a strange amount as it gives casters and monks more than their max, but fighters less than the average.


HP: 35/35, AC: 18:12:16, CMD: 20 Saves: 5:3:2 +2Enchant Skills: Dip: +7, Per +11, Sense +9, Stealth, +7,

Thank you,

I'll be check my equipment costs, and see if they are over 150gp.
And it looks like a good aligned group.

and it looks like I'm not the only one who escaped slavery


Albino Jungle Dwarf Alchemist 1) (Perc +4; Init +2; HP 11/11; AC15,T12,FF13; CMD 15; F+4,R+4,W+0 (+2 vs spells&poison)

Interested in joining.

Valeph escaped persecution in his hometown and is trying to find a new home.

Melee focused alchemist with some ranged power.

EDIT: profile updated.


20 point buy, First level.

Non-core races or classes must have:
1. a believable and convincing back story
2. strong reasons/motivations to work inside of the group context.

150 starting gp or your class average, whichever is higher. (There aren't exactly many shops on a deserted island, you'll need to work together and share resources.)

One campaign trait from the Player's Guide, and one other trait.

I'm targeting 1 post a day.

In addition to you back story, characters need to clarify:
1. Which port/country you boarded in. Check the Player's Guide for a list. (This should correspond to your campaign trait.)
2. Why are you traveling to Eledor (the capital of Sargava)? (This might correspond to your campaign trait.)
3. Do you have any ties or relations to any organizations, positive of negative?

Character alignments should be close to each other. Minor group conflict can make the game interesting, severe group conflict is just ugly. Having a PbP break down into a long discussion over which approach to use is just boring and tedious.


Divine Gamemaster of the Abyss and below...

Looks like you've found enough players - good luck to you!


Male Elf Barbarian 1 (Invulnerable Rager)

The background below answers the questions you asked:

BACKGROUND:

Kalis is an Ekujae hunter from the western Mwangi Expanse. Several years ago his village shaman had a dream about Kalis and told him he had to travel to the Great Northlands and visit their long estranged cousins. Increasing numbers of elves had been abducted from Kalis' village and from other villages in the area by "civilized" humans of the Aspis Consortium. The shaman was convinced that Kalis could learn something from the outside world that could help with their plight. The shaman offered no guidance what Kalis would learn to help them or where he should go, just that the spirits would guide him. Kalis traveled north and spent a few years among his distant cousins in Kyonin. There he learned to smith weapons of steel. Among Kalis' people the secrets to smithing steel were lost during the dark times following Earthfall. Such weapons would be instrumental in fending off the intruding humans. Finally equipped with knowledge he believed would help his people, Kalis began the long trip south. He traveled south overland, and caught a vessel traveling west across the Inner Sea. At Corentyn he boarded the Jenivere, planning on traveling to Sargava and taking the great river there home.

Short answers:
1)Corentyn
2)Traveling home to the Western Mwangi
3)Kalis' people consider themselves at war with the Aspis Consortium.

1)"I boarded in Magnimar, but am a stowaway."

2)"To get way from that slaver bast*** of a master."

3)"The underground fighting arena in Magnimar, where I had to fight about 8 years, They loved the crowds I brought in, but I hated the place."

Background is in character profile.

GM, When Will you make your choice?


Female Mwangi Elf Wizard(Enhancement)/1 - HP 10/11; AC13,T13,FF10; F+1,R+3,W+2/+4

He is having some connection problems to Paizo, I have been talking with him via email. We should have a discussion tonight or tomorrow I believe.


HP: 35/35, AC: 18:12:16, CMD: 20 Saves: 5:3:2 +2Enchant Skills: Dip: +7, Per +11, Sense +9, Stealth, +7,

Thank you,

I also had connection problems late in the afternoon, for a while


It's been a hard decision, but I will go with Kalis, Valeria, and Valeph. I will keep Luther/Chainmail in mind as an alternate.

@Valeria and Valeph: Would one of you consider a name change (or name reordering), so that we don't have two characters starting with "Vale"?

I will use Google Drive to share maps. Please PM me a email address that I can add to the share list.


Albino Jungle Dwarf Alchemist 1) (Perc +4; Init +2; HP 11/11; AC15,T12,FF13; CMD 15; F+4,R+4,W+0 (+2 vs spells&poison)

Done, mon. When'a weebe staahtin?


HP: 35/35, AC: 18:12:16, CMD: 20 Saves: 5:3:2 +2Enchant Skills: Dip: +7, Per +11, Sense +9, Stealth, +7,

As for the Name change, it'll be hard since this alias has posted over 10 times,
But Valeria Ingrid Titania Abia when you shorten becomes Vita.


I've decided to start while sailing on the Jenivere, as a kind of prologue, to introduce the characters in more natural way for the story. I'll get the background together and thread started after dinner.


Albino Jungle Dwarf Alchemist 1) (Perc +4; Init +2; HP 11/11; AC15,T12,FF13; CMD 15; F+4,R+4,W+0 (+2 vs spells&poison)

Gameplay thread up. I'm looking for a short description would, IC character background, (what you want to present yourself to the party).


HP: 35/35, AC: 18:12:16, CMD: 20 Saves: 5:3:2 +2Enchant Skills: Dip: +7, Per +11, Sense +9, Stealth, +7,

For me knowing each character's height helps me visualise the scene and with proper proportions.

VITA: 6'3"
Nngara Erebrian: 6'0"

Linard Toivan: ??
Harper Montajay:??
Jayem: ??
Kalis Daen'ith: ??

6'4" and 220. Tall and lanky

Good luck to all and good choice. I was going to customize my background to serpent skull, but ran out of time. Other characters were better developed and a better fit. PM me if I move off the alternate list to the big league. I will make a better effort then.


Linard is of medium size, 5'8'' and 170lbs.


Just to make sure everyone is aware, the game play thread is open here. Don't forget to put in your "in character" introduction.


Female Mwangi Elf Wizard(Enhancement)/1 - HP 10/11; AC13,T13,FF10; F+1,R+3,W+2/+4

Valeria - how are you 6' 3" and 235 lbs?

Changelings are supposed to be tall and slim (historic description) and 4'2" +2d4 height and 85+2d4x5 weight per the height/weight listed in the PRD. Most likely the height is an error and should be 5' 2", although there is no errata.

the average changeling stands approximately 5-1/2 feet tall and weighs about 110 pounds.

It also states that the changeling has typically dark hair, pale skin, but otherwise resembles the father's race.

Edit: I just mean to point out that with a Ulfen father, 6'3" is probably feasible. Also, I don't see height/weight listings in the PRD for changelings.


HP: 35/35, AC: 18:12:16, CMD: 20 Saves: 5:3:2 +2Enchant Skills: Dip: +7, Per +11, Sense +9, Stealth, +7,

The height is not an error,
as the GM stated "I just mean to point out that with a Ulfen father, 6'3" is probably feasible."

that and the Hulking changeling trait is a annis hag trait, and annis hags are size large.

And If I were to do it properly, she would likely be between 6'9" to 7'

Annis hag is just over 8 feet tall
Ulfen men 6 feet to 7'3" tall
Ulfen women 5'9" to 7 feet tall.

So should I bump up her height to match better with her genetics?

Linard, Jayem, Kalis: Can you confirm that you've seen the game play thread is up?


Male Elf Barbarian 1 (Invulnerable Rager)

Sorry, my absence is not typical for me. I am coming up with my intro now and will have it posted soon.


Female Mwangi Elf Wizard(Enhancement)/1 - HP 10/11; AC13,T13,FF10; F+1,R+3,W+2/+4

I shot PMs to all three of them earlier this morning.


Sorry, weekends tend to be slow for me. I'll post the intro now.

Weekends have a different flow, especially across timezones. My curiosity derived from the fact that everyone had posted in the OOC thread since I made my (link less) announcement of the game thread.
