Sounds nice. My horse won't be as tough, though. But then again Mythic stuff might make that a moot point.

How many levels of Daring Champion would you suggest I take? I want to focus primarily on Druid for the spells and whatnot.

Hmm...maybe instead of multi-pathing Hierophant and Guardian I could do Hierophant and TRICKSTER!

If there were a Pathfinder animated series or something and you could choose any voice actors you wanted, who would you choose for some of "your" characters like:

Merisiel?
Ameiko?
Shalelu?
Desna?
Shensen?

Might work. Daring Champion doesn't really get as much at first level, though, if this is a dip. On the other hand, you don't really get any order abilities at first level...I dunno. Both sound like possibilities, especially if I do a DEX focus like you mentioned. Daring Champion'd work well for that as I'd get finesse for free, right?

Ho HO! With Heroes of the Wild's new Green-Faith-based Cavalier order, the Order of the Green, a Cavalier dip just got a LOT more tempting! :)

Any advice on how to build a Nature Fang/Cavalier combo?

If what you say about pizza alignments is true, what does that make the Supreme pizza (pepperoni, sausage, onions, mushrooms, and green peppers)?

I write from a padded cell as I'm currently under investigation for pizza-alignment-based infractions and I seek to clear my name.

What the heck is up with romantic comedy? It feels like if the characters invested HALF as much time and energy into being open and honest about their feelings and working together to form a stable and meaningful relationship as they do trying to deceive their would-be partners into contrived situations to try and hide their intentions from some vague fear of judgment they'd be a lot happier. >:(

Let me start by pre-emptively apologizing for the long and potentially aggravating question regarding mythic stuff.

You've mentioned before that merely being mythic and taking the Divine Source mythic ability three times isn't enough for a character to ascend to proper godhood, that such a character is a quasideity, effectively, and that at that point they could "graduate" to true demigodhood via the Test of the Starstone. Are there alternatives to using the Test as the means by which a quasideity is welcomed by the gods as a junior member of the pantheon? I know deities like Kurgess and Hanspur were granted their divinity by sponsors among the Big 20. Is this something that'd work for mythic PCs as well? I'm aware a lot of this is subject to individual GM approval, but I was just sort of wondering if you guys sort of meant for the Starstone to be THE method any PC uses to join the ranks of the gods or if the only real requirement was that, once you're at the peak of mythic power and can grant spells all the way up to 9th for your faithful, you had to find some way to take the final step, Starstone just being one option out of several?

That kind of ascension to divinity is best handled by ad-hoc GM fiat, not by any sort of predetermined rules set. AKA: it can happen at any time, to any one the GM wants. No need for any special rules at all.
I understand that, I meant more from a storytelling standpoint. Since the character I'm asking for is a Wrath of the Righteous character hoping to rebuild Sarkoris, I don't really know if him making a detour to Absalom for the Test of the Starstone makes a whole lotta sense, you know?
"Rebuilding Sarkoris" and "Becoming a God" are two pretty huge story arcs for any character. You can't do everything, but you CAN tell your GM what you're hoping to accomplish for your character and then if it fits the story, the GM can make things work.

I see. It IS the kind of stuff that works better as an epilogue anyway. *shrug*

Megaloceros DOES look tempting, but I was trying to avoid megafauna, and in addition to screaming "AVENGER OF NATURE!" it also kinda screams "ERASTIL OR CERNUNNOS WORSHIPPER!" and I'm not too keen on misrepresenting my stance as a Green Faither. Yeah, Cernunnos was a British god, but there's already two Horned Gods on Golarion, and if I wanna be my own god, I don't wanna take a theme that's already crowded. I was looking to be more of a "Wheel God." *shrug*

I guess a Cavalier dip isn't such a bad idea to gain weapon proficiencies. Plus it'll give me access to class skills I wouldn't have as a Druid, like Diplomacy and Intimidate.

Thank you for the link, but I'm already working him out as a Nature Fang druid in this thread here.

This thread's more for flavor purposes, figuring out his backstory, his connections to Golarion lore and the plot of WotR, etc.

Silver Crusade

Not too keen on stoneplate, honestly. One, I'm more interested in scaly armor like scale (duh) or lamellar, since those are Late Roman/Dark Age kind of armors that don't have to be made of metal (chainmail is something I'd like, but that's usually made of metal). Two, it feels kinda cultural-appropriationy, as stone armor is almost exclusively the purview of dwarves, and I'm trying to emphasize my character's own Kellid culture, rather than adopt the trappings of dwarves. I know from a mechanical standpoint it's less potent, but like I said, I'm looking less for power and more for just being NOT useless.

Won't dipping deny me the druid capstone ability?

EDIT: Nevermind I just saw the Druid's capstone is just wild shape at will, which I won't have anyway.

Dipping DOES seem tempting. Maybe I can justify it after first level by saying I demanded training with the crusaders after the initial attack to help lead the charge...

Silver Crusade

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Thank you, but I'd rather stick with basic longsword.

Let me be clear: I'm not looking for OPTIMIZED with this character. I'm just looking for FUNCTIONAL. As long as he can effectively cast spells and isn't a TOTAL chump in melee combat, I'll be happy. I fully expect there'll be at least ONE paladin who'll be better than him in melee, and that's okay.

What are the sections of Golarion and the Pathfinder setting that you're best equipped to answer (like how James Jacobs is the best person to ask about Varisia and demons, while Wes is the person to ask about Ustalav or the Hellknight orders)?

This is a topic I am really passionate about, and I will be advocating for more dwarves and more shamanism in every product I work on, but detailing these things will need to wait for an appropriate product.

That said, I think something like "Forgotten Faiths of Golarion" would make an awesome Campaign Setting product and I will pitch it (and snatch up the dwarven shamanism at the same time).

I would make this a must buy.

Old forsaken gods and myths from forgotten eras.

Apocrypha and other dark things found in ancient tombs that should have stayed buried.

Well, having done more research it looks like the magic would be a huge plus for things like leading the ritual to seal the Worldwound or casting a mythic spell to purify Sarkoris' tainted aquifer. The more I read about Druids the more I go, "Hey, maybe this'd be more fun to play than my original idea!" I also like the idea of becoming a paladin-friendly nature God who ISN'T Erastil. Originally I wanted to be a paladin of him, but that would just turn the Radiance sword into a longbow, and I'm more interested in being King Arthur than Robin Hood.

First off, I just wanted to say I'm a big fan of your work. The Harrow Handbook and Occult Mysteries are some of my favorite Pathfinder books thus far, and if the other books in Iron Gods didn't make me into a Numeria fan, your smashing finale with The Divinty Drive sure did! :)

Speaking of Harrow, just one quick question. How do you decide a person's Harrow card if instead of one highest ability score, they have two, such as a paladin with a STR and CHA of 16? Would such a paladin recieve The Paladin or The Empty Throne?

Silver Crusade

I wanna look and act like them. The reason for the Druid class is because the Circle of Hierophants, an organization made up of Green Faith Druids, was the closest thing Sarkoris had to a unified ruling body, so if I wanna play a character whose raison d'ĂȘtre is to unite the scattered remnants of the Sarkorian people and take their home back from the demons, I'll need to play as a Druid. This concept was originally going to be a paladin before I did more research into how Sarkorian politics functioned pre-Worldwound.

I'm looking to construct a character for Wrath of the Righteous, and fks here have generously directed me to the Nature Fang archetype, which is almost EXACTLY what I want out of such a character: Druidic magic without wildshape, guerrilla tactics and combat style feats!

But I don't know HOW to build a Druid at all, let alone a Nature Fang. So I need some advice. Here's the basics of what I want out of him

Going with human (specifically Kellid) and using my free feat to get Martial Weapon Proficiency (Longsword) because scimitars aren't very Celtic, which is what I'm going for with this guy. I'm hoping to go sword and board, since his name has "shield" in it.

Looking to use a horse as an animal companion so he can double as a mount, and it won't seem ridiculous like a wooly mammoth. I'm a Celt, not a caveman!

Since WotR uses mythic, I want to definitely take the Divine Source abilities, but I'm not sure what to take for a path. I'm debating multipathing Guardian and Hierophant, as Hierophant has a lot of druid goodies, but I don't like the campaign trait associated with it that makes the character the son of an existing god, since I want him to follow the Green Faith.

So...what should I do? Can I make this work or is it doomed out of the gate?

Silver Crusade

You think if the Thrunies are deposed it'll cause a horrible cataclysm where the soul of every Chelaxian citizen is forcibly stripped from their bodies and dragged to Hell due to a stipulation that once House Thrune no longer rules Cheliax, Hell gets to claim its payment of the entire nation's souls? I mean, it sounds like Hell's into that sort of thing given they gave Mad Ol' Ileosa a similar deal indicating a mortal can sell someone else's soul or something! Just kinda trying to figure out how best to liberate Cheliax without triggering something as bad as the Worldwound.

I've haunted these boards for a while looking how to make a Sarkorian-blooded paladin for this AP, but the more I look at it, the more I realize that the Sarkorian remnant probably wouldn't look to a paladin to leadership, but a druid, the last of the old Circle of Hierophants, but the first of the new. Almost like a Luke Skywalker for the Green Faith. I've seized on this idea to create the character of Bren, a Nature Fang druid eventually multipathing into the Guardian and Hierophant mythic paths and taking Divine Source to become the newest god of the Sarkorian people.

The first thing I need to get out of the way is what his family name will be. Here's the list from Lost Kingdoms:

Atlemoag, Belostar, Chosnic, Devimai, Dismar, Dziergas, Erimannar, Faidmeir, Ghalmont, Golhas, Hywaith, Istul, Jauntlar, Junzt, Kelembrey, Lemma, Masgath, Moah, Neveid, Noxtaag, Odes, Parnknot, Ricleer, Setarn, Trelimbors, Ummardar, Voagx, Vorlesh (this one'd be awkward, as the architect of the Worldwound and thus Bren's archnemesis, is Areelu VORLESH), Wieland, Yharloch

I honestly can't decide what to use. I'm turning to a lot of old British mythology for inspiration (the name Bren itself is an adaptation of Bran as in Bran the Blessed, as well as the legendary Celtic chieftain Brennus). Any advice as to which'd sound coolest and most reminiscent of British myth?

What Sarkorian clan was Areelu Vorlesh born into? I imagine her power didn't manifest in childhood like a sorcerer's might since as a witch she'd had to have had the knowledge of demons in order to bargain with one so she could get it as a patron who'd grant her witch powers. I know she uses the Widowknife Clanhold as her base and research facility in the Worldwound. Is this because she WAS a Widowknife before she got carted off to Threshold? Or am I reading too much into that and she's of a different clan entirely?

We leave that up to you, really. My preference is that they're words of power and don't actually form a spoken language. That's why you need read magic to read scrolls, not comprehend languages.

That was my impression, too. Thanks for the vote of confidence! :)
