Scarab Sages

Upgrades!: each night Droid starts play with additional equipment from this list

02-Extra Armour (legs)
03-Space Marshall's Binders (a bundle of zip-ties)
04-Knobby Tires (adds one die to Athletics and scramble rolls in vehicle mode)
05-Tow Hook (10ft of tough cord with a blunt three-pronged fishing hook on a reel)
06-Flames!!!!! (does nothing but looks awesome!)
07-Extra Armour (Body)
08-Dozer Blades (swords taken from Truckimus Ultra, leader of the Vehiclebots, that count as melee weapons)
09-Stealth Camo (1 die bonus to stealth rolls)
10-Long Barrel Blaze Rifle (relaxes regular Blaze rifle and doubles range of Aim actions)
11-Extra Armour (Arms)
12-Missile Pods (1 time use. Droid may take an aim action to target an area. All enemies within six inches are affected by the attack)

(I was thinking pick one and roll randomly for a second one)

I like the idea of magical "good thing I packed this..." But I think it would be too easy to abuse.

Scarab Sages

Not too sure what to do for the last two quirks...

Maybe:

Fast Mover: 1 auto success on dodge

Upgrades: Droid never knows what he'll end up with each night and has a large supply of parts and accessories to choose from. Each night Droid starts with additional equipment or tools. (maybe one chosen by player and one chosen by DM?)

Scarab Sages

Here's a rough submission for Cycle-droid Kai Maximum (Droid for short)

Background:

The Cycle-Droid series was a Japanese cartoon in the late eighties riding on the coat tails of popular Scifi cartoons that came earlier. Unfortunately the series didn't take off and was cancelled after only six episodes. Consequently the toy line, in full production at the time, was scrapped and the remaining inventory was shipped off to discount vendors and never heard from again.
That's where droid found himself for the next twenty or so years. Collecting dust in his box on a dirty shelf at the back of a flea market until a little boy found him and took him home. At first he was just a cool motorcycle for his Small's other toys but as time went by Droid quickly became the star. If it was chasing down space bandits through the asteroid belts or racing on the saturn's rings he was always with the boy. He even joined him at bath time and in the families pool, racing across the water and splashing his boy's sister.

Personality and Description:

Droid is a motorcycle robot through and through. Hot headed, reckless, loud and competitive and will go to any length to protect his small even if he winds up with dents or scratched paint because he knows that his small is always happy to clean, fix, paint and sometime customize him.
Underneath layers of hot rod paint and armour pieces and weapons scavenged from Combat Carl vehicles and the more popular 'Transmorphers' line of vehicle robots Droid is an eighties anime transforming motorcycle. He could find himself wielding cannons or missile launchers or even glow in the dark swords depending on whatever his small decided was necessary for the day's adventure.

Stats and skills:

Toughness (5)
-Brawl +1
-Toughness
-Athletics +1
-Provoke
-Guts +1
Articulation (5)
-Aim +3
-Dodge +3
-Scramble +3
-Spotting +1
-Tiptoe
Imagination (2)
-Exaggerate
-Lie
-Blanket
-Boom
-Neverland
Fellowship (1)
-Comfort
-Command
-Carouse
-Assist
-Fate
Accessory (2)
-Armory +2
-Forge
-Invent
-Repair
-Evaluate

HP:

Head (4)
Body (8)
Arms (6)
Legs/Wheels (7)
Core (5)

Quirks, gear and accessory packs:

Quirks
Vehicle Mode: transforms into a motorcycle, drastically increasing speed and allowing a regular or small sized toy to ride on him but limits his available actions.
Amphibious: thanks to all of his time playing with his small in the bath and in the pool Droid can move about freely in the water and can even float when in vehicle mode driving about like a jet ski
???
???

his Small:

The family calls his small 'Eddy' and they live in what they call a "small apartment" in the city. Eddy likes action cartoons and soldiers but anything with robots is best. He is a rather small, small with glasses who likes to build models, usually planes or tanks and such but never seems to finish them and has little shoe boxes of parts and pieces on his desk where he works. Eddy's father is something called a mechanical engineer and loves to help Eddy with his models (The only finished models Eddy has are the ones made by him and his dad together). Eddy's room is a mess most days so he never really notices when stuff gets moved during the nightly battles against the Bug King who claims the apartment building as his own.

Scarab Sages

Gasp. Don't open the box!

Scarab Sages

Sounds like a neat game. I'd love to make something like a transformer

Scarab Sages

Wow three ultramarine tactical marines? Maybe I should change my character

Scarab Sages

Updated and included a short history. If you'd like anything expanded just ask.

Scarab Sages

Here's my submissions work in progress

Magnus

Scarab Sages

Yeah I'm building an Ultramarine tactical marine.
I'm currently torn between building him based primarily as a sniper or emphasizing command though.

Scarab Sages

Going Tactical marine. Most likely Ultramarines.

Scarab Sages

No rites of battle?

Scarab Sages

Okay. Have you put any thought to post frequency or group size? I personally see deathwatch and dark heresy as more geared to smaller groups for different reasons. In dark heresy the larger your cell the less dangerous the more minor threats become. While a small team in deathwatch fits theatrically as a small band of specialists fit more the specialist team that makes deathwatch so intesting, true both are small groups but one has more the feel of vulnerability while the other is more a close knit team spitting in the face of whatever overwhelming odds are against them that particular week.

Alternatively Rogue trader can work quite well as a larger group. A rogue trader and his trusted advisors taking what they want from the universe has more of a large or grander scale wherein more characters would give the ship and the game more depth. Plus those ships have literally thousands of crew members so a larger command staff isn't all that far fetched.

Again these are my own opinions and ideas for you to mull over or not.

Scarab Sages

Hey TerraNova, missed you starting this thread.
I'd be interested. I don't have only war or black crusade...yet but I have a rather exhaustive set of the rest of the books. The rogue trader or deathwatch games sound interesting to me if you haven't settled on a group of players.

Scarab Sages

Please keep me in mind if you do decide to run.

Scarab Sages

I am torn between making a void master and a seneshal maybe the rolls will help or do you have any preference

rolls:

ballistic skill: 2d10 + 25 ⇒ (10, 10) + 25 = 45
weapon skill: 2d10 + 25 ⇒ (7, 5) + 25 = 37
strength stat: 2d10 + 25 ⇒ (1, 4) + 25 = 30
toughness stat: 2d10 + 25 ⇒ (5, 10) + 25 = 40
agility stat: 2d10 + 25 ⇒ (8, 8) + 25 = 41
intelligence stat: 2d10 + 25 ⇒ (9, 3) + 25 = 37
perception stat: 2d10 + 25 ⇒ (3, 9) + 25 = 37
willpower stat: 2d10 + 25 ⇒ (5, 6) + 25 = 36
fellowship stat: 2d10 + 25 ⇒ (1, 5) + 25 = 31
reroll stat: 2d10 + 25 ⇒ (8, 10) + 25 = 43

Scarab Sages

I'd be interested. Gimme a bit to figure out a character... And dust off my copies.

Scarab Sages

Sounds like a very interesting idea. I'd be up for a spot. What are your thoughts on Oracles over cleric?

Scarab Sages

i hope i copy/pasted everything from chummer okay...

droid

Scarab Sages

If theres a spot yeah. just gotta figure out where i psaved my finished rigger/hacker.

Scarab Sages

Attempting to re-list campaign under my tab

Scarab Sages

Rutilux you can move up to double your movement as part of a charge which means your mount lets you charge 100 feet

Scarab Sages

still working out total build but here's some background to peruse

Who is 'Droid':

The runner now known as Droid started out in a family run subsidiary lab of ARES industries, growing up learning about technology and robotics from his father and uncle. He was sent to some of the best technology schools available and when he graduated he returned to his families labs to continue in his father's footsteps. Everything was going great, they had a new prototype VTOL drone that they were going to be presenting to the Executives at their next meeting, stocks and options were high and everyone was in good spirit. That was until one fateful night when a team of runners broke into their lab and sabotaged their prototype the night before its unveiling. Needless to say when the drone when rogue and injured one of the board members the Executives quickly 'liquidated' his family and their company. Forced to flee everything he knew he went to the only place he figured they couldn't find him, the underworld of the runners, where he could turn his skills developed in the lab into a new 'career'.

what's he like:

Droid has never been good with people, he just doesn't understand how they work. With electronics and drones he can just take them apart, study them and then rebuild them better than before. Humans and metas don't work that way though. Sporting a fairly average build and slightly below average height Droid doesn't really stand out in a crowd, which works for him since he doesn't want to stand out. His dark brown hair sits long and half kept, showing signs that he is long over due for a haircut rather than long for style. He wears drab baggy clothing in a variety of greys and dark blues and can usually be found sporting a hoodie with whatever logos or brands appear to have been popular months ago.

Scarab Sages

Would a rigger fit/work?

Scarab Sages

Thanks for the invite i'll have Landon finalized later tonight

Scarab Sages

another person in the GTA nice

Scarab Sages

consider sword saint dropped. I've been looking at the aldori sword lord archetype and prestige class as well so I'm kinda torn between cavalier and fighter

Scarab Sages

Yeah I was just basing him around a dexterity knight to be different. Do you mind the weapon and archetype or would you prefer I avoid them?

Scarab Sages

Okay my a yet unnamed knight

knightly duelist:

I was thinking about a half elf based around the samurai and archetype sword saint, (link below)that uses the aldori dueling sword. Basically a D'artanion/musketeer kind of character minus the guns that's either part of an as yet undecided knightly order hoping to join or be recruited by a knightly order in the future. I may even go duelist prestige class or switch him to the aldori archetype fighter if you don't like the samurai/sword saint archetype
sword saint archetype
Strength 13
Dexterity 16+2 racial
Constitution 14
Intelligence 14
Wisdom 10
Charisma 12

Feats: Weapon finesse
Skills: Acrobatics, Bluff, Diplomacy, Perception, Knowledge nobility, Sense Motive

Scarab Sages

DM Locke I've been rereading your posts and I see Landon (my inquisitor application) being part of the new side of Helm's church in Tethyr , especially the part about making the wilderness safer for everyone.

I do have one question for an alternate application though. Are there any knightly orders present in Tethyr, I couldn't find anything on the interwebs about a local order. I had an idea for a cavalier(a kensai samurai actually) and was hoping to build him around a local order though.

Scarab Sages

looks like theres a lot of rogues so ill drop my rogue idea but what do you think about...

Landon, Human Inquisitor of Helm:

Lawful Good, Human, Inquisitor 1

Defense:
AC 20, touch 12, flat-footed 18 (+5 armor, +3 Shield, +1 Dex, +1 Dodge)
hp 11 (1d8+3)
Fort +4, Ref +1, Will +4

Offense:
Speed: 30 ft. (25ft in armour)
Melee: Bastard Sword +3 (1d10+3/+4, 19-20/x2) (S)
Melee:
Ranged:

Statistics:
Str 15(17), Dex 13, Con 14, Int 10, Wis 14, Cha 14
Base Atk +0; CMB +3; CMD 14
Traits: ?,?
Feats: Shield Specialty (Heavy steel), Dodge
Skills: Diplomacy, Heal, Intimidate, Knowledge(Dungeoneering), Knowledge(nature), Knowledge(religion), Sense Motive, Survival

Landon is a child of Tethyr, born to a minor noble family as the third son and raised by the church. He tries to embody the ideal of Helm by using the skills he learned to hunt down an elimate threats outside of the cities as well as in thier streets.

I see him resembling a paladin in many ways and if chosen he may end up become a true paladin later in his career.

Scarab Sages

Haven't played in FR in a long time so I'm a little rusty on the setting but I've got two ideas

Half-elf son of a minor noble of Tethyr and a reclusive elf taught both social gentry work and deception.

backstory ideas:

The characters mother was a renegade/traitor noble drow fleeing the Underdark after a failed coup vs her mother fled to the surface and beguiled his father, into marrying her while she posed as a regular elf through magic. I was looking to build him as a ninja to show his dark elf latent magic coming through. I was also gonna take the half elf changes in the ARG if possible.

A human oracle of battle of Lathlander or Helm

Scarab Sages

One thing i tried for radiation was treating it as a poison vs constitution. Different severities had larger dice if fortitude saves failed and reducing con works well, meanin the more radiation you take the harder it is to resist but it doesnt make it overly complex and allows PCs to 'heal' their radiation over time instead of RL where it just adds up until the inevitable.

if your looking for something to bring guns and technology in i just found this Amethyst which has great tech based classes and is designed for pathfinder so less house ruling and figuring stuff out

Scarab Sages

I'd be interested in this a lot. I've been playing fallout since #2 and tactics and never get a chance to play in anything that isn't fantasy.

if you'd like some help lemme know.

I've got several ideas that could work and fit multiple roles.

Scarab Sages

Hmm if third party is an option I have a prebuilt dhamphyr deathknight that I wanted to play and have him turn full vampire.

Is the genius guide to the deathknight an option?

Scarab Sages

off the top of my head graveknight or vampire would be fun. But I'm not sure they're exactly balanced for parties

Scarab Sages

what kind of undead are you allowing?

Scarab Sages

or vice versa. Either fiendish boon as higher level or treat anti-paladin levels increase the Cavaliers mount ability

Scarab Sages

would you allow an antipaladin? And if so would you allow the fiendish boon to stack with the cavalier mount?

Scarab Sages

dotting. Gotta figure out what I'll submit though.

Scarab Sages

congratulations to those who got in.

Scarab Sages

I've update most of the crunch but still have to buy gear, do skills and spells

Also in case your wondering I'm only taking two weapon fighting so I can take the sword and pistol feat later.

Is there anything you'd like me to add to my backstory?

Scarab Sages

heres a link to my submission, still working out crunch but I've got background worked out.

http://paizo.com/people/TheoboldLeskin

Scarab Sages

I've been pondering about making an inquisitor /ranger of either Erastil or Iomedae, I haven't finalized everything yet. Still waiting on your decision about the black powder inquisition and this as a whole before I build too much around it.

Scarab Sages

I'd love to try this game

what are your views on guns and gunslinger or the black powder inquisition?

Scarab Sages

yeah, welcome back.

Scarab Sages

Couldn't get into sinblades game so if you run one I'd be up for it.

Scarab Sages

as much as love FAllout I don't want to steal someone else's spot so I'll drop too but feel free to pm me if a spot opens up.

Scarab Sages

any openings left?

I love the fallout series and would love to try this out.

Scarab Sages

Congrats and enjoy!

Scarab Sages

can't wait
