20 pt buy.

1 selected trait, and I'll come up with a campaign trait for you since you're jumping in at 4th level.

pretty much all book options are open.

4th level standard PC cash. (nothing better than +2 enchancement overall), so while you could have a +2 dagger you can't have a +2 keen dagger.

As we start AP2 you'll be allowed to re-tool your characters using the new books.


Human Jack of All trades

So it's 20pt, 1 trait, with one selected by you.
Cash refer to core book PC wealth level 4, +2 enhancement limit on gear
(I prefer not putting all my eggs into one basket, in case their is sundering maniac, destroying party gear*)

*Actually when was the last time any party visited a blacksmith to either sharpen weapons or repair their metal gear in game?

And how how do we introduce the character?

Seeing a barmaid lifting keys off a guard at a local pub, to quickly make a copy via key mold, than place it back on the guard, on her return serving.

Or

Running into a Thief*, doing the same job as the PCs, and find it better to team up.

*in towns and cities this "persona" only appears at night, but can during the day only when absolutely necessary for a job. This persona is known as "Twin Tails" for her twin pony tail hair style.


CotCT GameMaestro

Zero only:
Trusted contact of Field Marshall Croft or of Vencarlo Orsini. (AKA, Blackjack, though he's aging that's why he's looking for a replacement, but none of the party fits the bill. Lawful Inquisitor, no. Lawful Paladin, no way. Chaotic Drunken Dwarf cleric, umm...chaotic yes, Blackjack prodigy, no. Guardsman that is an expert in polearms...not really a blackjack type.)

So that could be the contact, you could be being groomed to become the hero of the people. in black cloak and mask. If you want to go this route, you'll be at the execution watching Blackjack

Or we could work something else out.

Little History, Since the beginning of this AP, I'm the only one left. I started as a player; then the GM dropped, I love my character so much that I picked up and ran the game from there. I don't do any railroading with her, though I do use her to fill in some story gaps occasionally.

This party started about midway through the AP and has been stable since (minus Panish's wife having to drop because of her thesis.)

Ninja Sounds great, and let me know what you were kind of thinking as far as skills or ability for your second trait, and I'll work that into it.


CotCT GameMaestro

Oh you could also have been friends with one of the other characters, perhaps with Marra, since she had been a member of the dark side of the city for many of her years, from age 5 to 15 under the thumb of Gaedren Lamm.


Human Jack of All trades

I kinda like like the sound of black jack's replacement (she's a little robin hoodish, and likes seeing rich selfish snobs have there stuff stolen, especial if the snobs use tax money on themselves)

And the "Twin Tails" persona wears an all black outfit with hood (with holes for her twin pony tails to stick out, with bells attached (but no ringer though)), and a simple black face mask made of cloth.

She is is maxing her Social skills, thief skills (disable, sleight), Stealth, Perception, and Acrobatics.

How is HP handled per level,
Character wealth at 6000gp in total.

Note she is taking 2 levels of monk (Martial artist)

I think I'll go with armour expert trait (reduce the ACP)
First level feat: addition traits (Charming and Magical talent (ghost sound))
third level feat: alertness (to counter the lower skill points of the monk)
forth level: Monk bonus feat: Dodge.

Question:
Does Mithril Breastplate count as medium armour for armour proficiency requirements, since mithril makes it a category lighter?

It is considered medium armor. Part of the Pathfinder changes. To prevent Mithril Full Plate barbarians, without taking the proficiency tax. It counts as light for qualification purposes of feats/class abilities. But you take the penalties if you're not proficient in it.

So if you have medium armor proficiency, you can wear it and still be able to use abilities that require you to be wearing light armor.


Human Jack of All trades

So they fixed that,
Ok so if I wanted Mithral breastplate, I either take the feat or take a class that gives medium armour. Great now I'm thinking of using the urban barbarian to give me Kaio-Ken* for the martial artist persona, Pai.

*DBZ reference


CotCT GameMaestro

Yeah, they did.

But they also gave Medium armor back to rangers, so there was some push/pull. Plus increasing the AC of all heavy armor.


CotCT GameMaestro

Gotten anywhere with creating this character? The other characters are waiting on the next day for you.


Human Jack of All trades

She is finished.

Check over it in case of a mistake in creation

I was thinking of having her disguise herself as a nun (as Kuniochi in the past disguised themselves as Miko) and bluff that she is to bless the poor soul before hanging. She quickly stuns the executioner, rips off her disguise reliving herself as "Twin Tails", cuts the "traitor" down and then escapes with her.

Or would you prefer something else?


CotCT GameMaestro

I was thinking Black Jack met you later in life, perhaps catching you during a robbery, as he is a hero of the people, perhaps you fought a duel of honor and lost due to his skill (he's much higher level than you), thus he took you in to set you on the straight and narrow.
(Because the next time he caught you stealing from the people...) Now after the recent happenings, he realizes Black Jack needs to return.

Perhaps you WE'RE training to be a ninja, or had just become a ninja when your clan was wiped out (they're not exactly common in Varisia obviously). I just don't see a clan operating in Korvosa currently. I mean I guess there could be...I'd have to think about it.


Human Jack of All trades

Well, what about a ninja clan that followed the Kaijitsu family over the crown of the world, but got separated from the family and the rest of the group. They are passing the arts down generation to generation, but there numbers are also dwindling. They family is willing to teach any that they adopt into the family to keep the arts alive.

The family was helped out by Black Jack a few times and the family returned the favor with information that would have been hard to come by and or by setting up some things in advance for Black Jack's more daring accomplishments.

Black Jack found Mai in the streets orphaned. He knew a family that supported him from the shadows and would be a good family for her. He also saw this as a chance for a successor to be made. Since then Mai has been imitating him, and wanting to be a hero for the people and not the rich snobs in power.

He could also be using the execution event to have "Twin Tails" make an appearance and get a real taste of the job, she is to inherit.

If you want "Twin Tails" appearance for in a quick preview.

Twin Tails Appearance:

You see a Woman of about 6 foot 0 and around 180 pounds. She is flat chested with some curves at the lower torso and pale skin. You see Golden Amber eyes and Copper Red Hair in twin pony tails with bells attached where the tails meet the head.

Her is wearing a black monk outfit that covers her whole body. She wears a simple black face mask that covers her lower face and the rest of the head is covered in a hood. The hood has two holes for her twin
pony tails to stick out of.

She wears her armour underneath the monk outfit, and in between the monk cloths and armour is a special sash she uses to reduce her bust size to help throw off the guards looking for her.


CotCT GameMaestro

Looks pretty good, but let's have you watching the execution with Blackjack, since it's written as a way to introduce Blackjack in action.


Human Jack of All trades

Gotcha

Though a fore shadowing of "Twin Tails" would be nice

example after the execution (using screen-play format)

as you walk by a group of guards you hear

Phil: Hey Mike, why did you not close the Gates or Portcullis and let Black Jack escape when the queen ordered it.
Mike: That black clad Twin Tailed b**** rigged the Portcullis and gates to be jammed open and then tied me up with some of rope stored in the room, Alice and Burt found me and untied me, ask them and they'll back me up.
Luke: Burt's the only man I know to never tell a lie, even under threat or worse.
Phil: So that's why when her Majesty ordered the gate closed it wouldn't close.


Human Jack of All trades

Do you require me to do any more tweaks?


CotCT GameMaestro

Double check all your numbers and I'll have a look over your character sheet again also.


Human Jack of All trades

Checked the skills, saves and equipment (thought I might be over by 100gp if I missed something), weight of gear, combat modifiers, I think she is done, unless I missed something.

What campaign trait are you giving my character?
so I can punch it in.

How is HP generated?
I used 2 full HD and 2 half HD, (8+5+8+5 + CON(1)*4) = 30 HP.

What type of bonus did you want?


Human Jack of All trades

I'll take orphaned, as that's part of the back story and I think I'll assign the bonus to Profession (seamstress), which is her side job as she can then make and repair clothes that she needs, Through her primary job is Barmaid, letting the loose lips of customers, give her information.

That'll be fine then.


Human Jack of All trades

Trait, Loaded in

When do you want Mai to make an appearance?

Great Nik'o, I'm pretty much done perrusing the next AP as well. Good thin I did so as well, since there's some stuff I would have missed. heh. From the end of the meeting with Cressida, you will have 2 weeks before any incident, a time to meet with the other 2 characters, you can come up with how you met on your own, or let me know and I'll interject some ideas.

The morning following the meeting with Cressida: A call for skilled women in arms and armor is put out all over Korvosa. Those that can shoulder plate and wield a great sword are to apply with Ileosa's swordmistress at first light.


CotCT GameMaestro

So, Donagar, Drakus you had no requests from Field Marshall Cressida

So there are several weeks before the event's fully kick in for the next part of the AP...time to let everyone get familiarized, don't forget the house Cressida arranged for you. I'd prefer to keep compress the time, and get everything going by the end of next week.

Gregor: Sgt Grau, an old friend of your who had been pretty far into the bottle after the King died was pulled out of his drunken fervor by you, and is doing quite well now.


Happy to be here

FYI, I'm recruiting fo a Jade Regent PbP.


Male Human Fighter- L6 | AC26 (T12FF26) CMD27 | hp 61/64 | Saves: F9 R5 W5 | Percep +0

Well, Sgt. Drakus would be thinking along the lines of getting his armor, shield or bardiche enchanted. Any way he can get all three done? [hopeful]


Happy to be here

Speaking of equipment, how much does Nik'o have for equipment?

Also, I have a slot left for language. Any suggestion?


Male Human Fighter- L6 | AC26 (T12FF26) CMD27 | hp 61/64 | Saves: F9 R5 W5 | Percep +0

Are we fourth or fifth level now?


Human Jack of All trades

Thanks. Is the maximum for a single item half that amount, or do you prefer a lower number? I'm thinking of getting a metamagic rod.
