I hope you all enjoyed it so far. It is a differant type of campaign and I wanted it to be a bit more dynamic. Even though your first characters are dead, the spirit of them lives on in your new ones, and the story continues.


Female Elven Cleric

DM would you allow the Centaur race out of the Advanced Race Guide? Its found on page 218. If not then I'll probably go with Samsaran since I think there reincarnation favor fits great with this story line. I'm pretty sure I'm going to go with an Inquisitor. I'm poking around with different ideas right now and I'll have a character up by tomorrow.


Male Pure Blood Azlanti Sythesist Summoner 20

Dotting and undecided, lol. Anyone else have any ideas on what they'll be playing?

Cheliax

Male Human Dungeon Master

Sure centaur is fine


Male Azlanti Druid (Mooncaller) 20

Working on an idea now. Might look through the race guide but haven't decided on much yet.


hmm. thinking of something


Female Elven Cleric

how much starting gold do we get?

Cheliax

Male Human Dungeon Master

Max starting gold


Male Ceuntaur Inquisitor(Spellbreaker)

Here is my new character. Take a look and let me know what you think. I made him with average starting gold so equipment might change a little or I might just keep the extra money as pocket change.

Really wish they had a better avatar option...but this will work for now.

Cheliax

Male Human Dungeon Master

Nimble looks good. I have added some things to the rift warden tab in case people missed it. If you want to go ahead and roll initative on the gameplay tab you can Nimble.


Male Pure Blood Azlanti Sythesist Summoner 20

Okay, I'll only make one joke, but I gotta make one.

The Joke, and c'mon you know it was coming.


Male Pure Blood Azlanti Sythesist Summoner 20

For reference, how will the advanced races interact with the core ones?

Cheliax

Male Human Dungeon Master

The Rift warden society has many races, it was started by benevolent(at least in theory) extraplanar beings and they spread their teachings to all races. Absoloam is very multi-cultural so I will not put too much of a strain on how you interact there. However, you may travel places where your race may be considered a monster and things will develop accordingly. There may also be cases of individual hatreds, for example a goblin kind interacting with a dwarf will have to overcome a very high diplomacy DC ect.


Male Pure Blood Azlanti Sythesist Summoner 20

Sounds fun!

So I've been looking at options, and I think I've narrowed it down abit.

Race-wise I'm thinking Tiefling. I do have to ask if Blood of Fiends will be an available source for that as well? My reasoning is that Meridoath (the Eidolon) was rather demonic in it's nature anyway, and tiefling would represent that coming out in my ancestor's heritage. I did toy with several others, including Aasimar in a round-about way.

Class-wise, I'm looking at three at present, and wanted some of the groups thoughts on it.

Option 1 is the Summoner, which seems to have the best fit overall, no archtype planned. Meridoath's spirit would still love on in the ancestor, just substantially weakened from before. It would give me the knowledge and power to summon creatures from beyond still.

Option 2 would be Fighter (not sure about archtype). It would help to fulfill a similar role to what Havandrier was doing before (melee bruiser), just utilizing weapons instead. The Legacy trait would be a fun coming out as well.

Option 3 was Magus (Not sure about archtype). My biggest concern on magus is if someone was going to use that class from before. It still fills Havandrier's role from before, albeit in a different method. Plus I'd have some spells for buffing, and kept a portion of the flavor of what Havandrier could previously do.

So any suggestions on it?

Cheliax

Male Human Dungeon Master

Mechanically given your benefits a Magus Kensai would be good. Summoner's are always interesting, for fighter almost any archetype would be fine, Lore Warden would proably fit the campaign best from PFS sourcebook.


Male Azlant Wizard (Universalist) 20

Hm... I am thinking to keep on wizard but maybe go more for enchanter specialized or keep him universal due to interesting possibilities with that. Other option would be Cleric, kind of another side of coin compared to my wizard but would be interesting.


Male Pure Blood Azlanti Sythesist Summoner 20

Having both played and am playing an enchanter, they can be loads of fun, but I'd like to throw out a couple warnings on them.

One is the mind-affecting nature of enchantments. So many things are immune, and it's not that hard to gain immunity it seems. Undead and Constructs alone become terrible foibles. It's easy to forget at times to have backup spells (scrolls and wands).

The other warning is the nautre of charms. How they function get interpreted differently by everyone, so it's always good to get an idea of what they can do first with the GM (Yes, I know you can read this). I have two different friends, one where I would love to play an enchanter with, the other where I'd literally never do ANYTHING with them.


Knight of the Wrathful Skies

I'm back.

I'm thinking of either a Ranger or a Cleric now... not sure of a deity, but possibly Iomedae or Sarenrae would fit well with Rift Wardens.

Except this Mr.Ed will kick your ass lol.

Oh great and mighty DM I have rolled init and am ready to get things started.


Male Pure Blood Azlanti Sythesist Summoner 20

Tiefling variant ability 1d100 ⇒ 93

93 Once per day, you may ask a corpse one yes-or-no
question, as per the spell speak with dead. This is a
spell-like ability.

Hmm, doesn't go with the flavor, but pretty useful I'd think.

Cheliax

Male Human Dungeon Master

Sir Allumbris, any diety is fine as long as you can get along with the team and not be overly zealous. Iomedae/Saenrae are fine, I would also allow you to dedicate yourself to an ideal.


How is this for Allumbris' descendant?


Male Pure Blood Azlanti Sythesist Summoner 20

Just a quick question on Tieflings. How do you want them to age? Established lore kinda conflicts with the ARG on it, as seen by the link below. Just trying to put some finishing touches on my submission.

Link


Male Pure Blood Azlanti Sythesist Summoner 20

Here's my initial draft.

I still need to choose a feat. I didn't realize Exotic Weapon Proficiency took a +1 BAB requirement at first, so I need to adjust gear as well to account for that as well (unless you mind if I take it anyway, it's for a Scorpion Whip!).

I also am not sure about my other trait at present.

Cheliax

Male Human Dungeon Master

Not bad Brakkart, are you going with a diety or an ideal? Tieflings will age as ARG. I remember in UC there was mention that scorpion whip now=whip for profiency I will look at it, but that is more out of curiousity you can have it for this game.


Male Pure Blood Azlanti Sythesist Summoner 20

So at this point, we have:

Centaur Inquisitor, Descendant of Lilly
Human Cleric, Descendant of Sir Allumbris
Tiefling Summoner, Descendant of Havandrier (I'm not quite 100% sold on it still, but best fit so far).

We still need Varos, Varian and Gallus's descendants, right?

Cheliax

Male Human Dungeon Master

Yes, hopefully they are interested still.


Male Azlant Wizard (Universalist) 20

ah, I have just totally forgot this due to not in my campaign tab :( I will immediately dot the thread to remember that I am playing on this game

Grand Lodge

Male Human Wizard / Level 2 (Universalist)

Here is my guy for the consideration. A wizard naturally: following the footsteps of his ancestors and having a Taldan background lol

omg - I missed the link here.... I thought everyone had just gone very quiet while they were working on their characters... I am still working on mine - give me a little time please. The past week or so has been insane and it won't quiet down til early next week.

What are our build peramaters... are we rolling stats, doing a point build, and if so, what point level?


Male Pure Blood Azlanti Sythesist Summoner 20

It's on the campaign tab, including our legacy traits. 25 point buy, 2 traits, max gold.


HP 22, AC 19 (T 19, FF 14), fort +6, refl +7, will +7, melee +5, ranged +5, CMB 7, CMD 26, init +7, perc +9 Azlanti human monk(Sensei, Quinggong, DM)/2

Going for monk again, tho very different from her ancestor. Meet Kimiko. I will flesh out the character more completely later... have to go play tabletop Pathfinder now.

Cheliax

Male Human Dungeon Master

Cool cool. Gameplay tab is up just roll initative when ready. I will start game on monday, if not ready by then I will plug you in.


HP 22, AC 19 (T 19, FF 14), fort +6, refl +7, will +7, melee +5, ranged +5, CMB 7, CMD 26, init +7, perc +9 Azlanti human monk(Sensei, Quinggong, DM)/2

Kimiko character sheet is done - I've put the information in my profile with the crunchy bits on her name line for ease of use...


HP 22, AC 19 (T 19, FF 14), fort +6, refl +7, will +7, melee +5, ranged +5, CMB 7, CMD 26, init +7, perc +9 Azlanti human monk(Sensei, Quinggong, DM)/2

I hate to ask this - but how did Nimble get those stats - I count WAY more than 25 points, even after subtracting the bonuses for being a centaur... did I miss something I should have included in my character as well, or what?

Cheliax

Male Human Dungeon Master

Maybe centaur bonuses? I will have to look it up again. When I get home.


Male Pure Blood Azlanti Sythesist Summoner 20

Centaur: +4 Str, +2 Dex, +2 Con, +2 Wis
Large: +2 Str, -2 Dex

Str 20-4-2=14 (5 points)
Dex 16-2+2=16 (10 points)
Con 16-2=14 (5 points)
Int 15-0=15 (7 points)
Wis 20-2=18 (17 points)
Cha 15-0=15 (7 points)

TOTAL = 51 points

This was done using the Advanced Race Guide Centaur build, which is also a 28 RP race. Just providing numbers to assist.

Its a combination of Azlant Pureblood(which I believe we could use, if not then I'll subtract the +2's), Centar build(provided in ARG), and 25 point buy. Before point buy I had +6 str(+2 azlant blood, +2 flexiable ability modifier, +2 advanced strength), +4 con(+2 azlant blood, +2 advanced con), +4 dex(+2 azlant blood, +2 advanced dex), +2 int(+2 azlant blood), +4 wis(+2 flexible ability modifier, +2 azlant blood), +2 cha(+2 azlant blood). So taking those off my stats are:

14(5 points)
12(2 points)
12(2 points)
13(3 points)
16(10 points)
13(3 points)

which will add up to your 25 point build.


Male Pure Blood Azlanti Sythesist Summoner 20

That makes sense, but are we still doing Azlant purebloods? I was under the impression no.


HP 22, AC 19 (T 19, FF 14), fort +6, refl +7, will +7, melee +5, ranged +5, CMB 7, CMD 26, init +7, perc +9 Azlanti human monk(Sensei, Quinggong, DM)/2

oh are we supposed to get pure azlanti bloodline too? I didn't know that. i thought we just had azlanti blood, which isn't the same thing. I can certainly go for the pure azlanti bloodline stats too if we get them!

Cheliax

Male Human Dungeon Master

No you dont get both races. What ever race you are will have Azlanti ancestors, but not the bonuses of both

Just to clarify, we can choose to be Azlanti Pureblood humans and get the +2 to all stats?


Back from Paizocon UK!

I'll roll initiative in the main thread now.

Cheliax

Male Human Dungeon Master

You could be a pureblood still if you wish. Or another race, but do not combine the two.


{HP 4/8 | AC12 FF10 T12 CMD12 | F+2 R+2 W+1 | Inish +2 SM-1 Per-1}

Very tempting, but considering the amount of work that would be required to convert, changing the backstory and all that, I'll stick with what I have.


HP 22, AC 19 (T 19, FF 14), fort +6, refl +7, will +7, melee +5, ranged +5, CMB 7, CMD 26, init +7, perc +9 Azlanti human monk(Sensei, Quinggong, DM)/2

ok... character is now finalized... still got hit and damaged as before, so no changes to what's happened - no more changes coming that I can foresee... how embarrassing to be the first to fall lol...


Male Ceuntaur Inquisitor(Spellbreaker)

Okay that was a misunderstanding on my part...I'll readjust things.

Grand Lodge

Male Human Wizard / Level 2 (Universalist)

uuh, I totally forgot the race thing too o.o


Male Ceuntaur Inquisitor(Spellbreaker)

hey guys sorry for the long delay. Got hit by a car on Tuesday and have been in the hospital since. Dislocated my knee, broke my tibia and fibula, and fractured my ankle all on my left side as well as scraped up my left arm pretty good. The foot was 90 degrees out of socket when I got to the ER Wednesday. They decided as they were relocating it for the second time that it would also be a good time to pick the shards of glass out of my arm...

Had surgery yesterday to place a plate and some screws in my foot and am on the mend. Got up and walked with a walker today for the first time since Wednesday. Going to be hopefully going to rehab on Monday if we can find a place that has beds otherwise there sending me home. 6 weeks of no weight on my left leg and no driving.

Not sure what my posting schedual is going to be like. I'm borrowing my girlfriends laptop as we speak to finally get you guys an update and if I go to rehab I might see if my mom can bring me my laptop so I can get posting again.

Thanks for your patience and prayers.
