• Weapon Familiarity: Falchion, Two-bladed sword, Rip-saw Glaive
• Energy Resistance 5 (depending on subspecies)
• Elemental Assault: Pick one of the following energy types that correspond to the environment the race has ties to: acid (earth), cold (water), electricity (air), or fire (fire). Members of this race gain the following supernatural ability: Once per day as a swift action, a member of this race can call on the elemental power lurking in its veins to shroud its arms in the energy type that corresponds to the elemental plane its race has ties to. Unarmed strikes with its elbows or hands (or attacks with weapons held in those hands) deal +1d6 points of damage of the appropriate energy type. This lasts for 1 round per character level. The creature may end the effects of its elemental assault early as a free action.
• Natural Armor +2
• Stubborn: Members of this race gain a +2 racial bonus on Will saving throws to resist spells and spell-like abilities of the enchantment (charm) and enchantment (compulsion) sub-schools. In addition, if a member of this race fails such a save, it receives another save 1 round later to prematurely end the effect (assuming the spell or spell-like ability has a duration greater than 1 round). This second save is made at the same DC as the first. If the member of the race has a similar ability from another source (such as a rogue's slippery mind class feature), it can only use one of these abilities per round, but can try the other on the second round if the first reroll ability fails.

Ill get it in the profile soon just have gaming friends in town so I have to run game for them. Well HAVE is a strong word, get too may be more appropriate.


Know(nat):1d20 + 7 ⇒ (17) + 7 = 24

Oh, and to answer your question in your last post, Mathesar, I believe all skills can take 10 if not under stress. So basically if I give anything a DC 10 and there isn't stress, then you don't even have to put the dice roll in, you can just get the spoiler.

*blink-blink* ding? really? Levelup?

Just like that. haha. I usually level a little quickly for the first five levels. Then I make it more gradual.

:) Not protesting. In any case, character sheet updated. Though I really need to get onto skills...

Ah yes. Skills will be needed. Haha.

So Xan had requested a little database for the words and names I make, just so they can be more easily referenced. This would help me out even, as I usually make them up just as I go and need to keep better track of them. I should have this up by the weekend.

I'd like to get us all to the reception by the end of this weekend, but if not, it's really no big deal. I just think it'd be a good check point before finals week. Then I can commit some serious free time for about a month.

Hey guys. So RL has consumed Kieran entirely. His promotion at his work has him working pretty hard, so he is temporarily bowing out. I will keep Kieran Crane just as a medical officer, but otherwise, he will not be used. I will not replace him, as I want to reserve him a spot for later (he estimates 4-5 weeks). So we can carry on without him until further notice. He may pick a different character as well. Not sure if I had mentioned this before, but I offer some opportunities for character changes and whatnot until about level 5, at which point it's permanent or I rid your character from the Deoxul somehow and you build a new one. Okay. Just letting you guys know. H1, I may be able to get to your post tonight, and then once Raal submits we can move on to the next segment of the introduction.

Oh hey, sorry for the hold up. The past week has been realy buisy both at work and home, I'm forminag a reply and I'll get it up as soon as I can.

No problem, Raal! RL is very important.

Odd question. I could conceivably hit a DC 40 Kn(local) next level. The problem is that I have no idea what sort of facts that would cover - "Know hidden organizations, rulers, and locations" is only a DC 20, and "really tough questions" are DC 20 to 30. Merely taking 10 tells me where the thieves' guild equivalent is, who really pulls the strings in government, where the illegal rave equivalents are being held, etc.

Are any of the following DC 40 Kn(Local)?

  • Locate a girl who stared longingly into a friend's eyes across a crowded bar last night
  • Track down who first sold some valuable trinket
  • Walk into a room full of strangers and know who they are
  • Be dropped blindfolded into a city and tell where he is without asking anyone
  • Know gossip about who the local Mafia don's daughter is planning on eloping with this week
  • Locate (if not access) food/shelter/restrooms in an alien society he knows nothing about (not even the language)

Will post and update character tomorrow. Extra curicular activities and work have distracted me.

Hey star-seekers. I'm dreadfully sorry for the delay. You'll have to wait a little longer. HW tonight and my last final is tomorrow. So I plan on tomorrw being my PbP day. Then I'm driving back home this weekend for about a month, so I will be able to be more consistent then. Thank you for your patience. I know we've only had a few posts so far, but how are we all feeling? It's probably to early to ask that question but I just wanted to make sure I still have all of your interest as it's been a slow start.

Mathesar: Dang man, that's pretty sweet. You're only level 3! Haha. That can't possibly be from just gestalt. I wouldn't really know what a DC 40 check would provide. Maybe you'd be able to find out what everyone in a large city is having for dinner? Or what underwear everyone is wearing? Perhaps you find out the locations of individuals within a population that all have "space" chlamydia". Haha. But seriously, if you were to roll ridiculously high, I'd provide you with complete information OF information that WOULD be available. In other words, some information is just not accessible by just a Knowledge roll, and would require more specific means for acquiring. But you'd certainly be guaranteed all the information that would be available to you.

I can "only" hit a DC 37 now. DC 40 is next level if I buy another +1 to it.

The full break-down is as follows:

  • 20 int (+5)
  • the Mindchemist ability Perfect Recall doubles Int mod on knowledge checks (+5)
  • Full skill ranks (+3) and class skill bonus (+3)
  • Bardic Knowledge adds half bard level to knowledge checks (+1)
  • the Archivist ability Loremaster lets me take 20 on a knowledge check once per day

I noticed something interesting about most of the builds here - we all seem to have paired classes that are similar to each other.

Erast combines two primary caster classes.
Harbinger One and Mathesar each combine two 3/4 BAB caster classes.
Raal and Kieran each combine a 3/4 BAB caster and a 3/4 BAB ki user.

Xan really is alien - he's the only one to have two classes with differing BAB.

I think it has a lot to do with ability synergies more than anything. Being MAD is no fun.

Or rather would be if we were playing 3.5. Oops.

Hey guys. I'm terribly sorry for my lack of attention. I haven't even been that busy. I just haven't had a creative spell in a week. But I did prep work today, so I should definitely start getting posts in by Wednesday. Tomorrow I'm driving home and probably hanging with family so I won't be able to attend to it tomorrow.

That score is crazy Mathesar! But too legit, regardless. Work that Knowledge.

Okay, so my to-do list:

-Posts your posts
-Create reference list of some vocabulary and concepts
-Give Mathesar and Raal presents

Thank you for your continued patience. If you have lost interest, there will be no hard feelings. If going 4 days without a post is normal, then I'll stop worrying about it. I just feel bad because I'm assuming I should be posting like... everyday. haha.

wooow. Okay, Raal. I totally had your post posted and it was there (like, posted for real real) and now it isn't anymore. It was a freaking long one too. I'm so pissed. The sight has been weird the past few days. God, that's like, finishing an essay and your computer crashes before you save. Okay, I"ll get back to you soon.... with another post.... uuughh. Anything, next post after Raal's would be for everyone because you'd all be together.

Highlight and crl + c. Standard procedure for me before I post anything, no matter how small, even before a preview. Sucks loosing a post and, trust me, it will happen again.

btw, slow posting has suited me fine, I'm kinda loosing myself in following rpg superstar and now it's just vote, vote, vote... It's addictive, I'm telling you!

Haha. Right on. And yes, that's definitely something I try to practice. I"ve never lost an entire post like that before. What is this RPG Superstar? Do you vote for like, RPG athletes? Haha.

It's essentially a writing contest looking for another paizo freelancer.


Happy Holidays, star-seekers! Post coming soon. Busy family time. Be safe if you're traveling!

Ooooooh my god.... Raal, it happened AGAIN! I"m going to freak. This is incredibly annoying. I only hit preview, I didn't even hit post.

Ctrl + C baby.. Ctrl + C.

Haha. I did I did. I just wasn't expecting it to die when I hit preview. But anyways, your post is up! I will have the reception posted tonight, which will only be a short episode. Then we can boogey onto the launch. I don't have to go back to school until the 28th so I can hopefully get us along. If everyone could please let me know if you're still playing. Again, if not, no hard feelings! Just so I know what the deal is and if I need to recruit/ditch this sucka' (and maybe start a post-apocalyptic sandbox campaign that doesn't require so much detail :)).

Greetings fellows; just letting all my games know that I'm going on a camping thing for three days, starting tomorrow. There's a goodly chance I'll still have internet access but I may not, so I thought I should let you all know in case my posts slow down.

Happy new years, everyone!
