Welcome! Discussion for "Regular Joes" 1E-feeling campaign using basic PF rules.

Character creation:

Stats:
Either: 18, 13, 12, 11, 10, 9

*OR*

One 18 and roll the rest, 4d6 drop the lowest.

Classes:
Build a 1st level commoner (max hp is PF 1st level standard).

Equipment:
Hold off for now. I'll work on it.

No traits. No backstory required. Not Golarion. No standard pantheon - that'll be revealed as we go. Making it all up as I go. If you want to make up some sort of commoner, peasant, low-life backstory, feel free.

Dot.


Legendary Merchant of Pins

I can't wait to see who shows up for this and what happens.

Male Human Soldier (Army Infantry)/3, Security Guard/17

I'm in.


Open for Treefortifiers. If we get more than 6, maybe we'll do two groups, one in gameplay, one in recruitment (currently empty). We'll figure it out.

I'm digging out some of Arneson's stuff when I get home.


Male Human (Chained) Rogue 1 | HP = 11 | AC = 14 (FF=10) (T=14) | F+0 R+6 | W -1 | Ini. +10 | Per +3

I'll re-tool this character.

This is Shadow FYI.


Male Human Soldier (Army Infantry)/3, Security Guard/17

Character's mostly finished. Jared is a simple carpenter ( Craft +13 ), and a decent cook ( Profession +5 ).


I wanna play the warlock.

Seriously, though, how would a character progressing towards a spellcasting class work in this game?


Slant your stats towards your desired class and PM me your choice, including (if applicable), kind of familiar or animal companion or bonded object or whatever you would like to have in your build. I'll incorporate it.


Howsabout we shoot for starting first thing next week. I'll get starting gold and equipment lists out over the weekend so you can finish up.

Copasetic?


Male Human Soldier (Army Infantry)/3, Security Guard/17

Yep.


Shadow's Status

Rolls:

4d6 ⇒ (6, 5, 3, 6) = 20 = 17
4d6 ⇒ (6, 1, 4, 6) = 17 = 16
4d6 ⇒ (3, 4, 3, 2) = 12 = 10
4d6 ⇒ (2, 2, 2, 4) = 10 = 8
4d6 ⇒ (3, 2, 1, 3) = 9 = 8

+ 18

Wow great and poor rolls. ;-)


When you are good, you are really, really good, and when you are bad, you are horrid.


Male Human (Chained) Rogue 1 | HP = 11 | AC = 14 (FF=10) (T=14) | F+0 R+6 | W -1 | Ini. +10 | Per +3

Almost done...

Gotta start thinking of a character concept (at least where I might want to go class-wise)

Treppa, what races are allowed? Human only? Core only? Nothing exotic I would imagine?


Core only, yeah. Humans are first-class citizens, others are looked at askance.

Ok, average to slightly above average as you would expect from the rolling method. Happy with those Treppa, or is your preference that we use the array you posted?


Nah, use what you like.

If this plays like my AD&D career, you're gonna die a lot anyway. Of course, I played a thief. The original thief class was, shall we say, fragile.


Male Human Soldier (Army Infantry)/3, Security Guard/17

Treppa, PM'd you my character.


4d6 ⇒ (1, 2, 5, 6) = 14 = 13
4d6 ⇒ (2, 2, 5, 1) = 10 = 9
4d6 ⇒ (4, 6, 4, 4) = 18 = 14
4d6 ⇒ (1, 6, 3, 3) = 13 = 12
4d6 ⇒ (3, 6, 6, 1) = 16 = 15
X = 18

In the interest of balance & roleplaying, I think I'm going to make that 13 into a 10, and the 9 into an 8; leaving me with 8, 10, 12, 14, 15, 18. Sound alright?

4d6 ⇒ (1, 4, 1, 4) = 10
4d6 ⇒ (5, 3, 6, 3) = 17
4d6 ⇒ (6, 3, 4, 2) = 15

OK, I guess that is 18, 17, 17, 15, 14 ,14?

If this was actually 1ed I'd SO be the Pally.

M human commoner 1 | HP 11/11 | AC 11 | CMB +2 | CMD 13 | Fort. +2 | Ref. +1 | Will +0 | Init. +1 | Perc. +5 |

I reckon this'uns done.

It terrifies me how quickly this character came together. From concept to finished stats & history took less than two hours.

character concept in a nutshell


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

LOL.. Nice!
I have a feeling Valdimir will be underestimating ol' Cletus quite a bit

Good lord, man! Have you never seen a bar of soap? It smells like a troop of monkeys miscegenating with a dead horse in here.


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Well despite the site eating all my formatting the first time (GRR), I think the V man is ready to roll!


This is going to be fun; I can tell. I think everybody's ready to get a little stupid.

Put some stuff about religion in the campaign tab. My inclination is not to worry about alignment or use spells that do so. Anyone see problems with this? I have not analyzed the system to formally remove alignment.


Male Human Magus - 1

My character is now PbP-ready.

Silver Crusade

Male Celestial Cleric of Myself 10/Radiant Servant of Me 10

How many are we up to? If you're not full yet, I'll join!


Male Human Soldier (Army Infantry)/3, Security Guard/17

We won't know until the dust settles. But, a quick count gives five, including myself. If you hurry, you can make the main group.

18, 16, 16, 15, 9, 8

Hooray for dump stats!

Thinking of a divine caster approach...

4d6 ⇒ (5, 1, 5, 4) = 15 14
4d6 ⇒ (5, 5, 6, 4) = 20 16
+ 18

18, 16, 14, 11, 9, 6.

A dim-witted commoner/fighter?


M Human Commoner 1st|HP 11|AC 12|Init +6|Perception +5|F+2| R+3|W+1

Well, we'll need someone to carry the 10' poles and Lucern hammers for us. I'm certain you can earn your keep.


Female Human Commoner 1; HP 10/10; AC 14, ff 12, t 12; Fort +1, Ref +2, Will +4; Init +2; Perception +8

Hello!


Male Human Soldier (Army Infantry)/3, Security Guard/17

So, a potential Bow-based Ranger?


Male Human Magus - 1

Updated my skills to include untrained. Just in case.

Liberty's Edge

Male Mothman Expert 5

I was originally thinking of a ranger, but we seem to have several potential martial types already. I think I may end up going down the druid path, but we'll see what happens.


Male Human Soldier (Army Infantry)/3, Security Guard/17

Okay.

Liberty's Edge

Male Mothman Expert 5

What about you John? Jared's a simple craftsman I see, but a smart one. Arcane caster potential?
