**Note: This is a closed game. Please do not apply.**

Those expressly invited, please submit your character profiles here for GM approval. Do not post on the Gameplay until I set it up.


Game Master

I would like back stories, but I do not require geographical specifications. For RP, I’ll provide general information of significant locations (see campaign info). This campaign will be starting with lengthy sea travel, and you probably will not return to the continent of origin until the end, if you decide to go back. The majority of the campaign will be island-hopping. I’m not asking you all to build sailors, but keep things like armor check penalties in mind when choosing your gear. Otherwise, build a character as you wish.

Favored enemy: The creatures you will be interacting with include but are not limited to: humans, dwarves, halfings, goblinoids, undead, animals, and dragons. Given the lack of elves and gnomes in the area, the inhabitants may react differently to the presence of such a creature, or any other races not already listed.

Favored terrain: The most common terrains you will be facing are water, forest, plains, mountains, and underground. Perhaps a few others, depending on what you do.

Oh hey.


Game Master

APPROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVED

Shadow Lodge

Male Hobgoblin (Shielded) Fighter 4

First one done. Now I get all the phat lootz!


Male Dwarf Cleric of Irori

It's 343 in the morning. I just spent the last 3 hours putting together an alias. I hit save. Paizo broke. Wouldn't let me go back to my info. I hate the world.

(I'll re-do everything tomorrow. *tear*)


Game Master

Clearly, your moustache clogged the paizo-tubes.


Male Dwarf Cleric of Irori

Okay, finally ready for approval.


Male Dwarf Cleric of Irori

Knowledge (Local) 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (10) + 9 = 19
Knowledge (History) 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (12) + 8 = 20
Knowledge (Nobility) 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (7) + 6 = 13

Heh. Dang.


Game Master

I should also warn you that where you are leaving and where you are going have very little information about the other. In fact, depending on who you talk to, most dismiss the other as products of fairy tales and the like. Knowledge Local, Geography, History, and Nobility DCs will be difficult to pass until you reach your destination and hopefully find records, annals, or talkative residents in order to get a better understanding of the area.


Male Elf Monk 2/Ninja 4

MAKING AN ARCANE CASTER IS STUPID. WHY ARE THERE SO MANY BLOODLINES. STILL FINISHING UP.


Game Master

No rush.
Oh, and Bolgrith is approved, forgot to say.


Male Dwarf Cleric of Irori

Yay!


Male Human Sorcerer 4

Present and accounted for!


Male Human Sorcerer 4

Aladdin claims to be from the Azlanti, the supposedly lost race that lived among the waters. Azlantians do not have surnames, they do everything they can so that the world will remember their one name. Aladdin was adopted by wealthy nobles who found him as a baby near the shores of their summer home. Seeing his knack for magical things, they enrolled him in a school for such magical arts. After progressing through his studies, he felt a pull back to return to the sea, to seek out fortunes and quests to make his name known.


Game Master

Looks good, Aladdin. Two things: is there a reason Magic Missile is listed twice under Known Spells? And, could you include the details for the feat Toppling Spell? That one is new to me, and I want to make sure we do it right. Thanks.


Game Master

So we have a sword n' board hobgoblin fighter, a knowledgeable dwarf cleric, and a stormy human sorcerer. Diplomacy, Knowledges, Spellcraft, and Use Magic Device are covered. Two of you have Darkvision, and Perception is ok. However, you lack the Survival skill.

Other than that, seems like a solid first level party. I haven't heard from Mr. Fourthplayer yet, so for now, we'll play the waiting game.


Male Dwarf Cleric of Irori

Fourthpalyer has his very first ranger built. He's eager to get started, but in the middle of vacation away from computers. Should be back within the week I believe.


Male Human Sorcerer 4

Magic Missile is listed twice because one is the "favorite Meta Magic" option in Herolab. It will show what spell slot it takes up. But since I took the Trait Magical Lineage, it allows one spell to be one slot less after a Meta Magic feat is applied. Toppling spell causes a trip attempt whenever the spell hits, it's a trip check using caster level plus casting ability score bonus and does not provoke aoos. So Toppling Spell increases spell by one slot, but magical lineage brings it back to level 1! BAM. TRIPPING MAGIC MISSILES.


Game Master

Cool. I meant list Toppling Spell details on your profile, so that we make sure it is used correctly.

Shadow Lodge

Male Hobgoblin (Shielded) Fighter 4

A thought for Bolgrith: With your Cha under a 13, you cannot channel positive energy. This means no group heals and no mass damage to undead guys.


Male Dwarf Cleric of Irori

How come? I thought I could cast 3 + CHA modifier times. If my modifier is -1, shouldn't I get at least 2 castings per day?

I could try to revamp the build if I need to, but I thought I could still do it.

Shadow Lodge

Male Hobgoblin (Shielded) Fighter 4

Nope. Channeling is cha 13. I will double check, but I'm almost positive.

EDIT: I was wrong. You'll only be able to do it 3 times per day, but you cannot take feats such as selective channeling without a requisite cha 13.

That is what I was thinking.


Male Dwarf Cleric of Irori

Oh gotcha. No prob.


Male Human Sorcerer 4

Did you want extra channeling or what not? If you want, I can go the int route if you wanted to take channeling. There's a sorcerer bloodline that allows me to use int as my main stat instead of cha.


Game Master

I wouldn't recommend it, because then the party has low charisma.


Male Dwarf Cleric of Irori

No thanks, I've never played a magic char before. Like to keep it as simple as I can. I'll take just the basic channeling for now. And yeah, dwarf charisma heh.

Welcome to club dub wub!

I WANNA PLAY NOW!


Male Human Sorcerer 4

SERIOUSLY WHEN CAN WE GET THIS ROLLING. I'M SO BORED AT HOME.


Game Master

Cool your jets, kids. Go play outside or read a book.


Male Dwarf Cleric of Irori

Hold.... HOOOOOLD.....

(He's almost ready)


Male Human Ranger

Ready for approval
Sorry for the hold up. I possessed no internet access while in the jungles (Temperate Rainforest) of Washington.


Game Master

Thanks for posting, Balion. A few things:

Can you tell me where you got the feat Careful Speaker? I would recommend a more combat oriented feat (be it melee or ranged), because rangers aren't really built to be the best negotiators. Rangers are better at damage dealing.

Also, rangers rely most on the stats Strength, Dexterity/Constitution, and Wisdom. While skill points are important, rangers start with 6 per level, which is a pretty good amount already. I just don't want you to be disappointed in your character once gameplay starts and the stats can't be changed.


Male Human Ranger

I understand but I am going to leave it how it is and deal with the consequences. I did however change that feat


Game Master

Your call. Oh, and there are penalties for aging, which start (for humans) at the threshold of 35 years. The first aging increment incurs a -1 penalty to Strength, Dexterity, and Constitution, and a +1 to Intelligence, Wisdom, and Charisma. This is fine for spell casters, but bad news bears for other combatant characters.
I expect for this adventure to take longer than six months game time. Just a heads up, you may want to make Balion younger.


Male Human Ranger

Okay. He is now younger. By the time he becomes middle-aged he will be able to compensate for his debilitating circumstances. I hope.


Game Master

Yes. Old age and treachery always trumps youth and skill. And good choice on the Power Attack.

Shadow Lodge

Male Hobgoblin (Shielded) Fighter 4

For Balion and Aladdin: You guys know we're playing in a home brew world, not Golarion, right? I ask because your backgrounds tie to a world that doesn't exist to these characters.

Shadow Lodge

Male Hobgoblin (Shielded) Fighter 4

I rest my case.


Male Human Ranger

I thought we were just playing on a different continent?


Game Master

I'll allow these things. They are fairly obscure and probably won't affect gameplay.

Rolg is right though. The world is completely made up. By me.


Male Human Ranger

Alright. I have completed my character. Once again i apologize for the wait.


Male Human Sorcerer 4

And do we have heals?


Male Dwarf Cleric of Irori

Yessir, got's bunches of healz.

And welcome our newest musketeer.


Game Master

Aladdin, yes, it is feasible. Just make sure the role play makes sense for it, instead at level 2: POOF "Whoa, I'm part cleric now..."


Male Human Sorcerer 4

nvm, clerics are more wisdom. What I had in mind won't work. :-(
