Just to let you know that from this Friday evening I will on holiday for a week. I will be in the Scottish Highlands (though the bit nearest to Glasgow) and therefore unlikely to be able to post in this time.

The shortbow might be useful for Reekis but it won't be especially as he has a STR penalty and would do less damage. So we can put it in party treasure for later resale.

OK, I've looked at the PF version of the Warforged Juggernaut PrC. It looks OK, the only caveat is that it makes use of a homebrew feat from that website called Improved Resiliency which might impact on your plans for self-healing. I advise you check out that feat and see if it will cause you problems.

The conversion for the 3e Warforged Juggernaut PrC to PF is here. It looks quite brutal. Of course, these are amateur conversions and the power level might be a bit skewed. I can't quite remember the ECS version but this looks quite different. I'll compare tonight and let you know.

The only place in Khorvaire where it might be a legal problem for Wultram to be followed around by a skeleton would be Thrane. The Sharn book talks about Brelish law and intelligent undead are effectively persons under the law, IIRC. So long as you don't go around drinking blood and such other antisocial activities, they don't mind. (Funnily enough, casting Charm Person on someone is quite a serious crime, on the other hand.) Thrane, of course, is the home of the Church of the Silver Flame and they would take a very dim view (as they do of Karrnath in general). And, of course individuals may react in different ways. In the less civilized places it probably depends on their beliefs and superstitions. I don't think the lizardfolk are too crazy about undead wandering around, but since they don't mind the PCs they will choose to treat it as a relatively harmless eccentricity.

Well, not yet....

The concern over necromancy is nevertheless valid, and it was a problem earlier with the previous religious types (and look what happened to them - you think that was a coincidence?). Tal is Sovereign Host, which covers quite a broad church, so there could be a degree of flexibility around that. If he was actually Silver Flame it would be quite difficult. At a certain level, Tal may have to roll with it (and maybe understand the cultural changes where undead are, in some places, not remarkable) but on the other hand plenty of people also consider undead to be an abomination. So Wultram will need to be reasonably discreet. At the least, I would expect some learned religious debate between and Tal and Wultram if necromancy (especially animating dead) is the answer to the problem. And he might not just have to worry about Tal.

@Aubrey:

XP 13,447
6th level XP is 15k
Required: 1553

Also I think you missed my question before about approval for Necromantic might since not core mythic.

@Tal: Dual path is always nice, at least as long you can avoid the "too many things I want"-issue. Nothing wrong with those things you mentioned, just figured a few things worth mentioning. Cole as warforged does not need rest at all, neither does Wultrams Karnathi Skeleton, and once animate dead comes into play that is even more eyes on guard duty, like I said something to know before using up path ability for it. Then regarding your mention of the speed boost ability, I had that myself in the other game it is really nice to have, however since you mentioned the healing thing as one of the reasons you might want to look at "faiths reach", I do not know what degree of focus you have between melee and casting so don't know if it is a good choice or not.

Ta for the heads up on the xp total.

NEWS COMING IN: EVERYONE GETS ANOTHER 1,600XP. It's not everyday you get to speak to a mysterious primal force in the universe, and so you get come xp for that. So everyone should now be at the very beginning of 6th level. And before you thank me, consider why I might be anxious for you to be a level higher...

The Necromancy thing looks OK - I didn't realize you were asking permission, and I was fine with it (although it's not in the Mythic Adventures book - I assume in the handbook?).

I did wonder if Wultram might consider a bit of dual path, in that there are some Guardian (or possibly Hierophant) abilities that might go well with his skeletal friend. Obviously, based on your comments above, you may not wish to lose focus, but I thought I would mention it.

Aubrey,

It's not in the core Mythic Adventures book, but would you allow Mythic Pack Attack?
Mythic Heroes Handbook, pg 206 wrote:

Pack Attack (Combat, Mythic, Teamwork)

You circle around your foes and bring them down.
Prerequisites: Pack Attack UC .
Benefit: When you are adjacent to an ally with this feat, the
first time you attack an opponent you can take a 5-foot step
as a free action even if you have already moved this round. In
addition, any time an ally with this feat attacks a target you also
threaten, you can take a 5-foot step as an immediate action (or
as a free action if you expend one use of your mythic power).
Normal: You can only take a 5-foot step if you have not
otherwise moved in the same round.
I'm thinking of taking either that or Mythic Paragon as Vaard's first mythic feat.

This is fine. I'd probably add the caveat that only mythic characters get the benefit of the mythic teamwork feat but that should not be a drag on the party. That said, while feats just impacting numbers might feel boring, as a champion Vaard's job is basically to kick the s*+* out of enemies. That means hitting lots in combat and doing lots of damage, and those number boosts come in handy for that so don't dismiss them out of hand.

It's magic, but the rules exist to give the game balance. The rules around walls are very unclear - another bit of 3e where the rule-set is vague. But I think it's fairly clear in the general rules that solid objects break the line of effect, and on that basis I think it's reasonable to assume that breaks the wall.

As for Nalverren, i had another idea. Mythic Genius (if i remember correctly, though i'm away from books). But that would require DM approval (i'll get you a link to source or copy abilities, GM, once i get home).

If that doesnt work, i guess trickster. Nothing goes well with artificer unless the mage path has stuff about activating magic items, since i dont actually cast spells. If i go trickster, i dont know what flavors you speak of. I'm not actually a huge fan of mythic so i havent spent much time with it though i have played and do play in a handful of mythic games.

I've had a look, that seems fine to me.

Actually I've had a rethink - if you want something that is not in the "core" Mythic book, let me know and I will decide on a case-by-case basis. The Mythic rules are not the most balanced at the best of times, so I suspect that balance isn't really the be-all-and-end-all here.

Confirming I'm going with the bloodrager.

Out of curiosity, although they are standardised at 1st level, do we follow pre-determined changes when they level or are those up to us (assuming we level, of course)?

We played a 4e campaign from level 1 to level 30 (the capstone in 4e). It took us about 5 years and we were totally burned out at the end. We didn't even play the final climactic encounter (the players hadn't paid that much attention and didn't realize there was a BBEG standing behind the BBEGs, and couldn't be arsed. I was a bit disappointed as DM, but I'm philosophical. It was and achievement nevertheless to get there, and we may not rush to repeat it as it was bloody hard work to keep your attention going for that long.

I'm easy too, though I have a leaning towards regular. Not bothered if we do quests of scenarios. Kind of interested in the quests, to be honest, since I know what a scenario would look like (roughly).

The Exchange

No peeking, please Rarely Accountant 2/Auditor 4/Waster 30

You can play in two modes, so I believe - one is basically Core Rulebook only, the other is most published Paizo stuff (but with some restrictions nevertheless). According to Nevynxxx this will count as proper organised play, but we haven't discussed anything about how we will play. I'd prefer the freer version, personally.

You haven't really said what actually caused you to be kicked. In the end, while you might not get back with this group, there might be a lesson to be had, possibly about how you behave, or about the sort of people you want to game with. There is more to life than gaming - getting good grades in college is arguably more important - so a chance to focus on these things may make a more rounded person with broader interests. I dunno - it's tough, not just the gaming but the terminated friendships too.
