Tales from the City of Opal

Game Master Patrick Curtin

This is my homebrew world Arcaia. This particular setting is the free city of Opal, a lush equatorial city set on the edge of an immense jungle rife with undead , ancient civilizations, and dinosaurs.

I plan on keeping Izkrael as my PC, but I was thinking of giving him the Oathbound Paladin archetype (Oath against Undeath) from Ultimate Magic and maybe Skirmisher Ranger archetype from the APG, though I haven't decided if I want to give up his spells or not yet.

What level are we rebooting to?

Forgot to say ... I am really stoked that you're starting this one up again, Pat! I loved this PbP.

I want to keep San as my character, but I was considering remaking him as either a ranger/magus or ranger/inquisitor. Do you have any issues with me doing that?

Eagen is pretty happy where he is, though I might shop the new books around a bit.

Yeah, that sounds like a good-enough starting place. I'll give the others a chance to see this activating, then I will open up auditions for a few newcomers.

I actually think that Joleesa is pretty good as she is. I did a retool of her a little bit before the game went on hiatus and I had a flip through the new books last night and nothing jumped out at me as stuff to help her. Plus, her Feat choices are already set since I need them for a Prestige Class, so I'm good to go. :)

I'm looking at re-tooling San as a Ranger/Magus, since I was going eldritch knight anyway. I really like the magus, and kind of fits my vision a little better.

Sorry to keep asking questions, but can I change up my gear a bit? For instance, Ghostfetter is currently a greatsword, which I wouldn't really be able to use as a magus. Can I make it a different kind of sword?

Sure. We're rebooting, so just refit San as needed.

OK. I am assuming that everyone else is basically either MIA or uninterested. I am going to open up the game to some folks and see if we get any nibbles.

You know it didn't occur to me, but AllDMsareEvil (Tenfoot Twineater) is in a couple of other PbPs I'm in. I know he's been real busy w/ RL and not on the boards as much since his son was born, but I'll ask over there to see if he's still interested.


Male Elf Paladin/Ranger 4/1

I think i'm done with Iz. I had a +1 Impaling Longsword in Izkrael's equipment, but couldn't figure out what it did (I only have my pathfinder books with me where I'm working), and just ditched it. Since we are rebooting, I was wondering if I could just throw the +1 on my curve blade, and drop the mysterious Impaling ability.


Male Half-elf Ranger / 5

Also I'll be travelling the next week and a half. Should be able to post about every day, but mostly later in the evenings, so don't let me hold things up. If you need to DMPC character feel free to do so to move things along.

Qadira

DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

No worries folks. I'll need a bit of time to get everything pasted together and a new course for you all to sail.

Qadira

I should have an updated San by this weekend ...

Hi Kevin. There is room, so if you want I'd be pleased to have you. This is my homebrew, so it isn't as open as Planescape. That being said, most of the 'core' races can be found ingame, plus a few of my own:

SSliss'Pok: Nature-based lizardmen. Descendants of an ancient empire, they have eschewed cities and now wander the jungles as nomadic tribes. They are speacialists in alchemy and druid-type magic.

Hyrkmirians: Half dwarf/Half Fire giants (basically 6' tall fire giants). They are master smiths and clockwork engineers.


I missed the re-activation post as I am stoopid.

If Ten Foot has not been replaced I would love to resurrect his conquests.

How about Halfling or Gnome? Also are any classes disallowed?


Male Half-Elf Ranger 1 / Wizard (transmuter) 4

Pat, I've updated San to a Ranger 1 / Magus 4. Below are a summary of the main changes I made.

Changes

Spoiler:
*Stats - switched starting Int and Str. San's strength is now 18 and Intelligence 16. The +1 enhancement bonus from his former transmuter ability is gone.
*HP updated to 57. I believe we were using Max, correct?
*I re-did his spellbook, as not all of his spells were on the magus list. He had previously purchased 4 1st and 2 2nd level spells; as a 4th level maguc he is entitled to 10 1st level and 2 2nd level spells. I kept the extra 2nd level spells, but do not want the extra 1st level ones, so I "credited" him 100gp (+100gp
*I "cashed in" his wand of mage armor (+750gp)
*San had found several spell scrolls that he was holding onto to scribe into his spellbook later. Some are no longer on his spell list, so I "sold" them - protection from energy and summon monster III (+375gp)
*I scribed one spell into his book - darkness (cost 40gp)
*I gave him a mithral chain shirt (cost 1100gp)
*I added +1 str to his composite bow (cost 100gp)
so starting 209gp+100+750+375=1434; -1100-100-40=194

There is actually a halfling community I have sketched out that lives among the Hadorzee (a race of gliding monkeyoids originally lifted from Stormwrack that I also use in this game). Think of halfling culture with a Carribean twist and you have it.

Gnomes. Hmm. Not much thought on them, but I would say sure if you want.


Ha! This is sooo cool to see, have a blast with this guys!

Okay couple more qustions

1 Is there any sort of feline/canine/ type race?

2 is there anything the current party is missing?

Current party composition (I believe) is:

Joleesa Swashbuckler 4 / Rogue 1
Sanvoros Magus 4 / Ranger 1
Egan Ranger 5
Izkrael Paladin 4 / Ranger 1
Ten Foot Cleric 5

So we've got a little bit of everything already.


Male Half-elf Ranger / 5

I've changed Egan a bit. Made him the Falconer Archtype. Since the Belt of Healing is not in Pathfinder...can you think of a good alternative? Maybe a wand of CLW?

Guys apologies but my weeks been rough. I am cogitating now on the reboot. I'll be on in a few hrs. Kevin, sorry but no cat race

I just hopped on, pressed the {End} key to jump to the bottom, saw these three words, and was immensely baffled at first by the rest of the post once I read it. I firmly had my mind wrapped around the concept of a speed competition between felines, instead of a species of cat-folk. Funny how your mind (or at least my mind, lol) tries so hard to fit stuff into its preconceived slots.

Cheliax

Okay having thought it over I'm thinking either a Halfling fighter or Halfling Summoner

LOL. That is pretty funny. I was typing on my iBorg, so I didn't expound on my thoughts (touchscreen=teh suxxors), but getting online this week has been tough (and this weekend don't look good either ;/)

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

will have a concept some time tomorrow


Found the thread!

Hm, looks liek you have almost all of the basics covered, so I guess it doesn't matter what (Class) I choose to be?

I'll take a gander at my notebook, see if any ideas pop out. Otherwise,...

caster anyone? ;P

(lol, who was it that once told me on a PbP thread that I have made more Wiz characters than JK Rowling?!?) :D

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

Considering either a Dervish Dancer style bard od an Oracle. Oracle would probably work better for the setting.

Any thoughts?

Cheliax

Okay going for halfling fighter (may take a little while due to being on a laptop on holiday) Is it point buy being used and if so how many also will my character start with Wealth by lvl and/or traits?

Taldor

Male hu-man Paladin

could I just resurect one of my old PCs? I've played this guy a number of times but the games just keep dying on him . . . not that that will happen here!


Presenting Kessel Cobey (aka K-C, Casey, and Kessel Cool) He's a bard/druid/rogue hoping to become a Fochlucan Lyrist out of the D&D 3.5 complete adventurer (pg 47) though I might have to rework the class for pathfinder

Qadira

DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Kessel looks good Guy. I am trying to finagle some time up to get going on this. This weekend I will get an intro posted on the main page.


Hey Pat,
What is the starting Level?
I'm seeing a lot of 5th levels on the thread, then (duh!) realized that's probably NOT the level they started at! ;P

Also could you mention what the starting wealth and point buy is as well?

Qadira

DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

I'd like everyone to be equal so 5th is fine. Go with normal wealth for making a character of that level.

Qadira

DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Looking back, I put a 1,000 gp limit for initial purchases. Since there have been a few levels since then I can allow that to 2,000 for the newbs. Max HP (as usual) for all characters, and the Epic Fantasy 25 Point buy system.

RE: Reboot. I am assuming that the group made it back to Opal after a bit of adventuring and recouped after losing a few souls. Perhaps they decided to spend a few days at the Opal Explorer's Guild looking for few new faces.....

Cheliax

Sorry but do you mean 2000 gold altogether or starting with wealth by lvl but no more than 2000 gold spent on an item? Also are traits in use?

Qadira

DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

2K per item cap. We are using traits. You can even pitch a homebrew one if you want

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

So I'm thinking oracle of either Time, Battle, or Spellscar

Cheliax

Patrick Curtin wrote:

Does that include masterwork costs and basic prices for weapon? (since a basic +1 weapon will cost more than 2000 gold after including base weapon and masterwork costs.

Okay I'd like a little help folding Kessel into your setting Patrick. Originally Kessel was built for an Age of Worms campaign and so the character was essentially returning home to the small town of Diamond Lake after a few years in the big city. Essentially Kessel was the story of a kid finding out that you can't exactly go home again. One fun thing about that AoW campaign was that we had most of our characters knowing each other from childhood but if we have another bard in the party Kessel and the other PC might be old collage acquaintances.

Later, after that first game suddenly collapsed (Kayos was our DM), Kessel moved across the world to play in another PbP for the Crimson Crown. Both these games were set in the Forgotten Realms (which I'm not a huge fan of) and what I'd like from you is to make sure Kessel fits into your world. Basically I need some small hick town somewhere with a strong druidic clan nearby. I need a city and a prestigious bard school for Kessel to have studied at. And supposing that the city of Opal is not the same city Kessel went to school at (it would be easier if they were one and the same though) I'd then need a reason for Kessel to be in the city of Opal. Ideally The city Kessel studied at and the city of Opal are one and the same but if you don't want that to be the case I'm fine with that as well.

Ok got my concept, Oracle of the Heavens, devoted to Mama Quilla.

Crunch soon to follow.
