Question- Could I choose both traits out of the players guide, I like the synergy in RP of both Unbreakable Survivor, and Ironfang Survivor. because you could use reason for Ironfang Survivor is the Unbreakable survivor. and that's how you gained renown.

Dotting, will put up a dwarven Warpriest of Angradd.


Oooh, the challenge of a 15pt buy calls to me. I've been curious about this one, too. So I'd like to present Cedric Thistlewyne, Cleric of Erastil, for consideration. Any thoughts or suggestions are welcome. I didn't want to step on the toes of the way the town was built in the AP, so I left out the name of the cleric that took him in. If there's a particular preexisting character in the AP that fits, I'd be happy to more specifically tie Cedric's backstory to that person.

Background:
As a child, Cedric was always getting into trouble of some sort. Like his parents before him, and most of the Nirmathi around him, there was a fiercely independent spirit within him that refused to accept rules as something that could be applied to him. Despite his frustrating escapades, his family was always kind in their correction. They preferred to explain how his actions hurt others rather than simply punish the boy without instruction to back it up. As a generally good-natured boy, it went a long way toward establishing a moral foundation based on empathy rather than fear.

But then, as so often happened during the summer in the Nesmian Plains, a raiding party of Molthuni monster-soldiers attacked their tiny farming community. Unlike most years, however, this time the little villiage didn't have as much forewarning as they needed. Both of Cedric's parents fell to the enemy while they were still in the process of setting fire to their home and their crops. This was devastating enough on its own, but it also meant that young Cedric was put into the care of his father's sister.

Where Cedric's parents used kindness and understanding to guide his behavior, his aunt preferred to use a switch. Every infraction, regardless of severity, always earned the same punishment. It began to nurture a seed of resentment in his soul, and he ran away as soon as he thought he had a chance of never coming back. He never expected to get very far, but his fircely independent nature saw him through until he reached the town of Phaendar. He'd never seen a town so big!

With no money, he resorted to stealing from others to get by. He wasn't very good at it, though, and was caught the first time he tried swiping a piece of fruit from a passing cart. The farmer grabbed him by the wrist to drag him along to the town sheriff, but was stopped by Phaendar's senior cleric of Erastil who happened to be coming the opposite direction and saw the whole thing.

The cleric paid for the fruit and took Cedric back to Erastil's lodge. Unlike his Cedric's aunt, the cleric wasn't interested in restribution, but rehabilitation. He took Cedric in, treated him like a son, and, with his help over time, the sprouting seed of bitterness was uprooted and replaced with a structure of community and respect built upon the foundation of empathy laid by his parents long ago.

Now Cedric is a full-fledged member of the church that saved him from a dark path. He enjoys doing what he can to help the community of Phaendar grow in spirit, population, and prosperity. When the troubles of frontier life cause injuries, he's usually there to heal the wounds. When his community is threatened, he picks up his spear and does his best to defend it as though everyone in town is his close family. He likes to fish in the river whenever he gets some time to himself, but his fiercely independent streak has never truly gone away. He does his best to hew closely to Erastil's teachings in all ways, but still struggles with order and law. He hopes that will change eventually, but has come to accept that personal growth, like any plant, requires constant attention and an eye for the future.

I'd be interested in playing an aerokineticist glider pilot.

Background:
Dante's father and mother were Varisian merchants who made Phaendar their home base for purchasing agricultural supplies. Three years ago, tragedy struck as the family was rushing into town on a wagon, trying to beat out a thunderstorm that was bearing down on them. His father, usually a wary man, did not notice the bandits until it was too late. One of the robber's crossbows was accidentally discharged and Dante saw his mother die in front of his eyes, followed shortly afterwards by his father as he attacked his mother's killer. Dante doesn't remember what happened afterwards. The townsfolk describe that there was a massive stroke of lightning and thunder which grabbed there attention. As they went to investigate they found dead bandits, horses and a shattered wagon. Dante was barely alive but seemed to survived the lightning unscathed. Something changed in Dante that day. He has a terrible drive to try to fly. He has spent most of his inheritance on the purchase of a glider from the Technic League and spends his days patrolling the area for 'bandits'. He is assisted in his endeavors by one of his father's old caravan drivers named Bertram. They load the glider up on a wagon and launch it from a high vantage point. Bertram follows and tried to keep up as Dante flies his patrol. The locals just smile and shake their heads at the crazy rich kid, but they admire the way he pursues his dream.

Wealth: 5d6 ⇒ (1, 3, 6, 3, 5) = 18 Essentially average, I can work with that.


Presenting Thorek Ironspark, professional bodyguard for merchants out of Kraggodan. Stats are complete, still working on the fluff but I have a question:

In the "Kraggodan Castaway" campaign trait description, it references a siege of the Sky Citadel by Molthune. Is there any additional information on that? I didn't find anything on the wiki and it'd be germane to Thorek's motivations.


are there any good maps of the area? also would there be any privileged info to the individual players depending on the campaign trait or their back story?

I can assume that this might be provided if selected though but it would be cool to give information in pieces privately to each player based on their back story and allow the role-play among the party to bring it out.


I'll be submitting a starknife slinging human warpriest of Desna. It seems like there are quite a few ranged characters coming out of the woodwork for this, but luckily this character is just as effective in melee as it is at range due to Desna's divine fighting technique.

I'm planning on taking a dip of flying blade swashbuckler (pending GM approval) to add a bit more versatility. While I'll be short on skills, I should have the AC of a frontliner, social skills covered, and warpriest spells to boot.

I really want to play in this AP, so I'm going to take my time selecting my campaign trait and coming up with a decent background.


also the trait Ironfang survivor, a little info in the ironfang legion would be useful. I would hate to take this trait and make a backstory that contradicts what the AP says cause I don't have any info on the legion.

where are they coming from (this will be useful in placing the origins of my character)? what would it consist of? would I recognize anything concerning them?

from reading a little into the trait it mentions some things, it seems to reference something called the Ramgate Massacre, what is this?

Dark Archive

any problem with the archaeologist bard archetype? wanted to make sure before I submit


This is sixteenbiticon's alias for this campaign. I will be taking the Blight-Burned trait with a large scar over her left shoulder. Anca hails from Acorn's Rest (she was rescued by the druid Androssana when the Darkblight overran Anca's village), but happened to be staying in Phaendar when the Ironfang Legion attacks.


Eustoma's profile has been updated with the 15 point buy, and the Her Blight Burned trait. Her reason for being in Phaendar is to sell the season's pelts at the festival. She's looking forward to a new batch of tea, and some new clothes.


Pathfinder Campaign Setting Subscriber

Dotting, very interested. I have a dwarven ranger originally made for Kingmaker that I can retool a bit, or maybe something else that strikes me.


Not quite done with the archaeologist (RobL383), but here's the skeleton

After thinking about it overnight, I've made a slight change to the distribution of the point buy to make it work better in the long term. There's no actual change to the way the numbers work in the rest of the stat block, but I'm reposting here to keep everything together.

1d100 ⇒ 17


Interested in this. After reading through the player's guide, I'd like to play a Herb Witch with the Frontier Background trait.

Background:

Alysha the Pale is a old wise woman residing on the edge of Fangwood Forest who's spent her time harvesting herbs and helping villagers commune with their ancestors. Women often come to her to consult about their health, and she provides tonics for a small fee. She's consulted with them and the spirits have asked her to do what she can to challenge the invaders.

Once married, she's raised two children who have left the village and left to find their fortunes. She lights a candle in the window for them every night. Now, she spends her time talking to her pet Owl/familiar Wing.

Her trade has not always looked at favourably. There was an inquisitor who tried to get her hung, but Alysha exposed him as a charlatan who loved to mobilise mobs for his own purposes. Since that incident she has decided to be more careful in her dealings with villagers.

Not much of a combatant, she hopes to provide her skill with nature and her healing abilities to aid the battle against the Invaders.

She treats anyone looking younger than her like a child, and can be naggy at times. She's fond of a little drink and pipeweed from time to time, though careful not to get drunk.

Will be stating her out this weekend.

Description:
Short and thick black hair is continusly messy atop the frame of a lanky young man. Freckled and fairly pale, yet a slight grin is nearly always pasted across his face.

What's going on, bucko? The Backstory of Mavis:
Mavis came into this world in a way quite different than most other people. it was in a stable out in the backwoods behind a farmhouse Mavis’ opened his eyes for the first time and saw the welcoming face of a
man. Mavis looked down to see what was steadying him. Hands. Mavis liked hands. His parents were both horses, so he didn’t have any himself.

Being a horse didn’t come easily to Mavis. While others of his kind would submit to their base instincts and were more predictable as they were trained, but Mavis wanted to know why he had to pull a plow… and a cart… and carry people. Mavis eventually did come around, submitting to the whims of whoever was riding him, but he found it incredibly boring. He wanted someone to talk to, and so he turned to the other horses on the farm, but found that they were but simple beasts, and didn’t understand his whinnied pleas for conversation. After some time of this, Mavis found himself looking for ways to escape his fate as a simple beast of burden, and so, the next day as he plodded down the lane with the farmer and his wife weighing down upon his back, he began listening to their conversation and trying to imitate the words they spoke. After only five minutes of riding, the farmer deduced that some evil spirit had taken ahold of his good horse, and they turned their course to go to the closest temple.

Luckily for Mavis, Edna, the local priest was wise as she was old. She was able to see that Mavis was simply an exceptionally intelligent horse. Edna also knew just how Mavis felt, as she herself hadn’t been understood when people had first heard that she, a woman, wanted to become a priest. An instant connection was formed between the two of them, and luckily for them, the farmer wanted to be rid of Mavis once it was explained to him that his horse’s condition could not be cured. The farmer simply dropped the reins, and ran the whole way home.

In Edna’s free time, she would read to the horse out of the holy scripture, as Mavis seemed very interested. Days turned into weeks, and weeks turned into months as eventually, Mavis learned the language. For over a month, Edna never ceased to praise her god for blessing this horse. On one of these days, Edna went to the market for food and bumped into a man of the forest, who was in town for much the same reasons. She quickly explained the situation to him, and even offered him gold in exchange for the man using his forest magics to change Mavis into a form whereby he would better be able to grasp his own fate. The man met with Mavis and after seeing his profound thirst for knowledge, yet inability to turn pages, he promptly agreed help him. Re-incarnate was cast after Mavis was briefly killed, and his spirit took shape in the body of a human. The man left shortly thereafter without asking for any payment, or leaving a name.

Since Edna had never had a child of her own, she adopted Mavis. As Mavis’ new guardian, she figured it was her solemn duty to teach Mavis about what was right and wrong, and about the joys that came with loving and serving others. Mavis adapted to his new form rapidly, and eagerly took to her lessons as a fish to water. He still did thirst for something more though: Magic. After completing his chores each day, he would spend the rest of his time reading through some of the books on theories of magic that Edna had collected over the years. After abundant trial and error, Mavis was able to cast his first spell.

Overview in bulletpoints:
- Born an exceptionally smart horse, Mavis became self-aware, and wanted more for his life
- The farmer thought Mavis was possessed, and gave him away to a priest named Edna
- Edna saw Mavis’ potential and taught him how to read, and speak
- A druid used magic at Edna’s urging in order to change Mavis into a human
- Mavis was adopted and taught by Edna. In his spare time he taught himself magic

I can assume that this might be provided if selected though but it would be cool to give information in pieces privately to each player based on their back story and allow the role-play among the party to bring it out.

I've just put a link in the "Campaign Info" tab to an overall map.

Early on there will be no privileged information. But, there may be later.

Background Skills?
Combat Stamina for Fighters?

I am thinking a Shielded fighter

also the trait Ironfang survivor, a little info in the ironfang legion would be useful. I would hate to take this trait and make a backstory that contradicts what the AP says cause I don't have any info on the legion.

where are they coming from (this will be useful in placing the origins of my character)? what would it consist of? would I recognize anything concerning them?

from reading a little into the trait it mentions some things, it seems to reference something called the Ramgate Massacre, what is this?

The Ironfang Legion served Molthune loyally as one of its infamous “monster regiments,” mercenary units of nonhuman creatures, hired without official sanction to pillage during the coflict between Molthune and Nirmathas. The force served with distinction and earned a reputation for innovative tactics and fearless soldiers, culminating in a devastating rout of Nirmathi guerrillas assaulting Fort Ramgate (now referred to as the Ramgate Massacre by its few Nirmathi survivors). Without a word, the Ironfangs vanished shortly thereafter, soon followed by several other monster regiments, quickly depleting Molthune’s mercenary forces

any problem with the archaeologist bard archetype? wanted to make sure before I submit

As long as it is official Paizo material and not third-party, I will certainly consider it. I, as the DM, may not know how it works, and I may ask you to clarify effects, etc., during play, but I will certainly consider it for the party.

Looking to make a cavalier with Daring General Archetype. Is there restrictions on leadership feat? I mainly go for flavor over min/mixing that feat to my benefit.

I will not place undue restrictions on the leadership feat. But, beware, if you use your cohort during combat, then the cohort is a legitimate target. Also, if I don't have prior instructions for the cohort, I will have the cohort do things.

I am not using background skills. I'm a little too old-school for that.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I think it only fair to let everyone know that on the roll-playing/role-playing spectrum, I am definitely more on the roll-playing end. As a player, I prefer hack-n-slash to problem solving.

That said, it is only a personal preference, and I will, to the best of my extent, accommodate role-playing.

Here is current breakdown of submissions:

Melee:
Thorek Ironspark (Warpriest) crunch in.
Alastair Cadwallader (Cavalier)

Ranged:
Anca Covenu (Warpriest)
Eustama Handlefoot (Hunter) crunch in
Edward Sobel
Dante Black (aerokineticist) crunch in

Magic:
Mavis (Wizard) some crunch in
Bree Fairchild (Archaologist Bard)

Healing:
Cedric Thistlewyne (Cleric) crunch in
Alysha the Pale (Witch)

Other:
The Chess
Chubbs
Simeon
Gerald
Raltus
Eminem80
Inxpitter
Timeskeeper
Valera De stinzite


On behalf of the player who submitted an aerokineticist above, and myself thinking of a geokineticist - are occult classes allowed? They were not mentioned in the first post, so double-checking.

Occult classes are allowed. Though they may have some difficulties in the wild.


Do we need to make an alias? or just post here?

right now my crunch is done but I am stuck on a name.

as far as background: how detailed is needed? I can make a quick background that just highlights most important stuff or I can try and go more story like background.

I am deciding on a campign trait, I think I have the one I want but they aren't up on Hero Lab Yet.

Edit: Going to take World Weary Trait.

World Weary:

World-Weary: You’ve seen the horrors of war, and had
hoped you’d seen the end of it. You’ve retreated from
the fighting—likely from the front line with Molthune,
but maybe from the crusade of Lastwall or the political
infighting of Ustalav—and now just want to protect
and provide for those you care about. You gain one of
the following as a permanent class skill: Appraise, Heal,
Knowledge (history), Sense Motive, or Survival. When you
perform an aid another action to improve a creature’s
Armor Class, you increase its AC by +4 rather than +2.

Going to take Heal since it makes sense to what Churlost would be like. Hard but caring and wanting to bring everyone home.

fluff:
Having fought in the last couple years of the existence of the World Wound, Churlost never saw front line action. He was there when the Storm King destroyed Kenabres, he was there when the Heroes emerged from the assault on the fort changed. He helped with Rebuilding of Kenabres as well.
After 2 years and the closing, Churlost headed home. He had a wife that was he was missing something dearly, upon returning home he was put to work with the beast legion. Training them and helping them find their place in Nirmathas, after another year of training Churlost retired.
Finding solace in his wife's home town of Phaendar, Churlost took to working for the guard as needed. When he heard about the Iron Fang Legion on a rampage to make a country of beasts, Churlost began
to store supplies and prepare to weather the influx of refugee's that would be coming to Phaendar.

Little did he know about the true danger.


Anca's crunch has been posted. Everything is done except for non-combat gear, which I'll do if/when I am selected. ;)

I'm still working on her background, but I like what I've got so far.


Just out of are the shadowbound curse and succor mystery for the Oracle allowed? Shadowbound fits in with the backstory given the fluff of the curse and the succor mystery is a pretty cool support mystery.

I don't have Horror Realms. But, since it is Paizo material, if you add to your submission the text from the book about the shadowbound curse and the succor mystery, I will consider it.
