Varin: My mythic path ability lets me cast any spell on my spell list of a level I can cast as if I had it on spells known/memorized.


Merry Christmas to all!


ditto


Leaning fast but I'm not dead set on anything.


Did you need anything more from me aside from the minor edit?


Ranger or Druid and Rogue multiclass is pretty boss, got a pally/sorc I running right now that takes a while to build steam but once you get Eldritch Knight its quite nice, fighter/rogue, inquisitor 5/ranger x or inquisitor 5/gunslinger x. Just off the top of my head.


I actually came up with a way to not unveil that, shall we say, "personality flaw." Since most here dislike the CS I was planning for him to be undercover, and like any good operative he would keep his real opinions to himself. Since it 103 PA we could rig him up with some experimental gear along with some scrounged stuff so he doesn't stand out as CS but just another mercenary. As time goes on and he gets chummier with the D-Bees he may realize the error of his ways. Also, when he learns he's not "just" a master psionic but a full blown child of a diety he's going to have to re-examine his beliefs as well.


Need to what the starting year is, it affects my initial gear. If 101-105 PA I get the old coalition stuff, if 106+ there's some stuff from War Campaign I would have access to.


Hassan, you don't actually have any penalties with those stats. The PS and PE can be overcome with 1 physical skill even.

background:
Hyglak of House Lebeda knelt at the altar of Abadar, he wore only his small clothes and the cold of the northern winter bit his skin turning it red. Muttering under his breath he could hear the sound of activity in the courtyard, his half-brother would arrive soon. Smiling, he rose and dressed himself choosing some warm bear furs to cover his green and brown hued jerkin and trousers with a good, well worn pair of boots that he had cleaned and shined in the pre-dawn hours before running the boys through their sword and bow drills. He went down from his room in the northernmost tower to where his brother's carriage was just pulling in. Keeping to the gravel path he moved to await Iacobus as he stepped down from the carriage. His brother had aged in the months he had been in Restov tending to the main family's business there, this winter was not being kind to his bones, his limp was pronounced but when he saw Hyglak he straightened and they threw arms around each other.
"How was your trip big brother?" Hyglak asked, mirth in his eyes.
"Difficult and tiresome, these old bones aren't built for this anymore. But I am glad to see you Hyg." His wrinkled face beamed, "And how are my grandchildren? Been taking good care of them?"
"They're good Cob, your namesake is learning his swordwork well, I have the bruises to prove it. How about my nephew and nieces?"
"They take to New Stetven much better than I, come brother let's get out of this cold and around a fire." The elder brother led the way into the hall and Hyglak followed him.

It was the small hours of the morning, and in the firelight each of Iacobus's many wrinkles stood out. Hyglak was as smooth faced as when they were young, stealing kisses from the girls at the tavern, though he had developed a fair bit of stubble over the course of the day. Where one was grey haired and ancient the other could be confused for an elder grandson, that is except for his clawed hands and blood-red eyes. Hyglak was the product of their father's second marriage, a young Chelish noble woman of a minor house. Had it been known that Hyglak would be born a plane-touched such a marriage would never of happened, as it stood Hyglak had been forced to renounce his claim to so much as a branch house the day he came of age. Despite his fiendish heritage Hyglak was loved by his elder brother and that had kept him a productive member of the house. The younger brother had learned a degree of skill with the tongue and quill in addition to pursuits in hunting and tracking, for the last twenty years he had acted as the branch house's warden and marshall, finding criminals and game alike.

Iacobus's hand caressed the lanceboard piece before him, a pawn crafted of rosewood, "There is a war coming brother."
"Rumors have reached me here, is it as bad as it sounds?"
"It could be, a number of the swordlords are preparing a daring strategy to secure Brevoy's position should civil conflict begin." Iacobus moved the pawn into position and leaned back awaiting his brother's move.
"What could this strategy be? I thought that if Issia starts fighting Rostland the political manuevers would make discerning sides difficult?" Hyglak hovered his hand over his rook, eyeing the game board intently.
"There is a plan to send people in to secure trade in the Stolen lands, and possibly establish buffer or puppet states there."
Hyglak's eyes flicked up away from the gameboard and studied his brothers face, "And where do we fit in this brother?"
"I want you on one of the expeditions, this one to the Greenbelt. It would give our house influence in the region and if your youthful face is any indication it would be for quiet some time."
Hyglak moved his ebon rook and claimed one of his brother's knights, "Why do you really want me to go Cob?"
"You'll never inherit here, and while my children love you the main house is not thrilled with your presence in Brevoy. After my death I'm concerned what might happen to you, but down south they would have little say and you could make yourself a noble, ruler even." Iacobus smiled at his younger brother and moved his queen.
Hyglak rose and kissed his brother on the forehead, "I'll make you proud, I'll leave for Restov in the morning." Hyglak left the hall and went to his tower to pack.
A single tear rolled down the old man's cheek, "Checkmate, I'll miss you Hyg."

Appearance:
Hyglak stands a bit on the taller side, he's fit but lean. He keeps his blonde hair trimmed and tries to keep his face clean shaven in the Taldan fashion. His eyes are red like the sunset and his hands are clawed, though not particularly long or wicked looking they are clearly useful in battle. He wears subdued colors and styles most of the time but is not a stranger to finer court clothes. He smells of mint but it hard to pinpoint the source, some suggest his ancestry, others think he chews it when no one is looking. He moves with a gentle but brusque manner and possesses more grace than his frame would indicate.


Looking at Demigod with Coalition Special Forces, Commando, or Ranger OCC, from Conversion Book 2 and World Book 11 respectively. Thinking a demigod who has yet to discover what he is, initially he was just a grunt before his psionics awoke, then after joing Psy Brigade his other abilities came to the fore and he just thought it was his psionic power. Depending on other characters we can determine if he is still pro CS or if he has changed his ways.


I'll take it, going to play a longer lived race, probably a forlorn elf.


Happy Thanksgiving to all!


Rolling for interest

Focus Dex
Foible Con

Str1d10 + 7 ⇒ (8) + 7 = 15
Int1d10 + 7 ⇒ (8) + 7 = 15
Wis1d10 + 7 ⇒ (8) + 7 = 15
Cha1d10 + 7 ⇒ (7) + 7 = 14

Nice!


I may be up for playing, Coalition soldier of some sort is my usual OCC


Let's see about these stat rolls
12d6 + 6 ⇒ (2, 4) + 6 = 12
22d6 + 6 ⇒ (4, 3) + 6 = 13
32d6 + 6 ⇒ (4, 4) + 6 = 14
42d6 + 6 ⇒ (4, 2) + 6 = 12
52d6 + 6 ⇒ (5, 1) + 6 = 12
62d6 + 6 ⇒ (3, 3) + 6 = 12

Looks like 16pts by my math.

Seems like I'll do 25 pt buy


@Fanguar: Likely melee, I might multiclass rogue, gunslinger, or alchemist, still puzzling it out.


I think I'll split the difference and go Ranger.


Leaning towards Ranger(as always), Cavalier, Barbarian, or Bard

Also have a Gunslinger/Inquisitor build I've been considering trying.


I'm down with it, kinda interesting some of the mechanics remind me of Star Wars Saga Edition which I love.


Not a problem, I ran mapless for the first 8 years or so of tabletop that I did.


I like Kingmaker and Skull and Shackles, have not looked at Shattered Star yet but am willing to give it a try.


Leaning toward Pavaan or MathPro, based on posting record. Both seem good.


I'm good with anything really.


I'm good either way on mythic, would need to brush up on them of course.


I'm OK without the +2 cloak (he says tempting fate)

I've got one of the +1 cloaks.


May be best to recruit players for individual games, though take each game in order and present the overall concept of each player DMing a game. That way if on the first or second recruitment someone is up for playing the other games and running one we won't have to continue the search, and if not we have players anyway.


-7 assuming I didn't stabilize earlier


Dotting, will rework an Alias


Have fun on the plane.

You might want to change the name, there's already on of those

I know, but I went with the name due to the name of the Rhaelian homeworld being named Midgar, wouldn't be the first time someone named their super science project after something mythological/historical.


Still waiting on Fanguar.


I've got one in the works, should get him up tonight.


I can understand, send a PM if something turns around.


Yeah, needed to improve con to get to full health. One day I'll be an eldritch knight in plate and terrifying, right now I'm kinda squishy.


Greetings, I look forward to us getting our smite on.


Since we're reskinning the races this might be a good time to play around with the ARG racial creation rules as long as we don't get too out there. Would it be something you might consider?


Yeah, Salus is definitely going through those kobolds to get at the caster. He has a special dislike for caster what with being one himself. Tactically, each down kobold is one less chance for a crit though so I don't feel bad dropping them.


Think I'll run an actual criminal, no false accusations here :). I like skill characters so I'll probably cover one of the required skill sets.


I need it for Arcane Armor Training and Medium Armor Pro, the requirements for Hellknight Signifier.


I could likely read the thoughts of one or both of them, if we're lucky.


dotting for interest


HP rolls 2d8 ⇒ (4, 2) = 6


Back from out of town! Going to give Ulp a way to contact Salus, best is probably with the Calistrians.

Edit: Also, I'm trying to keep a running tally of what we have acquired loot wise. Not tracking anything someone has claimed, have it in my Salus profile under "party swag header." Tell me if I missed anything.
