still struggling with concept... I haven't given up yet, just thought I'd poke my head in and make some noise.

Scarab Sages

There seems to be a lot of interest here. Cool! Consider this a dot. Kiwi try to think of something that can compete with all this awesomeness.

Personally, I put mine on my character sheet.
Seriously, my meatspace group has never considered this. Hmmm

You should try PMing me. Practically guaranteed to get an answer that way. Just ask Grig.

My life is in a bit of turmoil right now as I am in the process of selling an inherited 1/4 of my house along with my younger brother to our sister and will be moving soon.

He's also been busy training for a Muay Thai fight tomorrow night, plus he had a big wrestling show last Sat, so we haven't had the chance to sit down and discuss the legendary gifts for our PCs let alone you villains.

I hear ya, man. I'm closing on my first house so my life is about as crazy as yours, it sounds.

Adulting is hard.

Scarab Sages

Just pinging to say I'm still here. Life is still preventing meaningful progress, but I haven't forgotten about this.

Your touch AC should be 14

Alrighty. Time to get cracking.
Is it ok if I flavor an earthbreaker into a Giant's thigh bone? There's a campaign trait that requires Earthbreaker.

Scarab Sages

Male Father Nerd 3, Father 5, Obsessive Poster 2

I'm good with that. Time to download a guide!

So it looks like a choice between LoF and SS.
I'm leaning toward Shattered Star because I know nothing about it, but LoF is a pretty close second.

If we have me AND a bard?! Oh my....

Edit: His great club is totally going to be a Giant's thigh bone and his smaller clubs will be the thigh bones of his (evil) enemies!

Ooooo you could also Dip Cavalier and give everyone Sympathetic Rage to make it a +12 :3

Wow. I don't know if it's worth losing yet another level of Skald though. I'll look into it.

I've narrowed it down to

Rise of the Runelords : already in one

Curse of the Crimsom Throne : weak maybe?

Second Darkness: Know nothing about it

Legacy of Fire : I could get behind this one. I haven't attempted it in years. The last one ended in a TPK at the end of book one.

Council of Thieves : meh? Theives doesn't seem to equal heroism...

Kingmaker In one that's struggling.

Serpent's Skull : Never tried it. I hear it's kinda Surviror-ish

Carrion Crown: Maybe, but his one is all horror and I'm not sure that's what we're going for here.

Jade Regent: Maybe? All those NPC's could be rough on a newer GM

Skull & Shackles : been in two, run three

Shattered Star Already DQ'd, apparently

Reign of Winter : In one, kinda hesitant on another

Wrath of the Righteous : Maybe? I hear this one was balanced on the weak side, so could end up being a challenge for our Storyteller

Mummy's Mask : *shrug* Haven't heard much...

Iron Gods

Giantslayer : I know nothing about it, but the title sounds interesting.

Hell's Rebels : in one

Hell's Vengeance

Now that you mention it, I haven't played an unabashedly good character in forever.

Scarab Sages

Male Father Nerd 3, Father 5, Obsessive Poster 2

Right now I'm feeling jade regent or Giantslayer. I know actual nothing about Giantslayer. I have its title and that's it. :P

Scarab Sages

Male Father Nerd 3, Father 5, Obsessive Poster 2

I can get behind that. Is there an AP that lets you be the hero without feeling like a weakling at early levels?

Maybe we could start at a later book?

Scarab Sages

Male Father Nerd 3, Father 5, Obsessive Poster 2

I think it doesn't matter what we play as long as we all invest. It's equally, if not more, important that the GM wants to run the thing we play.

Scarab Sages

:D

Scarab Sages

Male Father Nerd 3, Father 5, Obsessive Poster 2

hmmm.
Themes. I don't know.
I recommend you avoid Kingmaker. I'm in one that's struggling along, but I get the feeling that it's really wonky for PbP

Scarab Sages

I may be the least developed. I have the basics for the character herself. I need her AC and minion. Plus the official story. I'm still working, but it's been really slow going the last week or two due to real life.

Scarab Sages

I don't think your background saved...

Scarab Sages

Hahah! Nice, monkeygod. I hadn't even gotten to that part yet.

Scarab Sages

I'll be perfectly honest and say that I could use that 50 point allowance to build something crazy. More so than I already have. But I didn't because building something to be invincible ruins all the fun. That allowance is easily more powerful than CR 1-3 creatures and probably more powerful than CR's in the 5 range.
But, GM wants what GM wants, and I will follow his wishes.

Scarab Sages

I claim the evil sibling! Paladin on anti-paladin action is now guaranteed at some point!

Ok. Must have overlooked it. Are they generally distrusted like on golarion?

Scarab Sages

Just how much are teiflings maligned in your setting, salsa?
Actually, I don't remember seeing teiflings on the race list. Are they permitted?

Scarab Sages

Ya. I'm always interested in that kind of thing. Do you have anything specific in mind?

Scarab Sages

That's right we are! :P

Scarab Sages

Rough story-ish thing

Evil abounds. Everywhere you step another feind seems to have left its droppings. That's why the church trains is champions. Protectors of unimpeachable moral fortutude and unassailable martial prowess are needed to defend the poor and helps from the depredations of evil. That's where I come in.

As soon as I get into the order...
------------------------
Starting at lvl 1 as a paladin in training. All the heart. None of the skill.

Scarab Sages

I've never played an iconic Paladin. You know, defending the righteous, smiting evil, standing fast in the face of overwhelming odds.

I think I'm going to go for that. Human, naturally. High cha, high Str. This is gonna be awesome!

Scarab Sages

I would say thrallherd. He's trying to dupe masses of people, not necessarily the PC's. Or not just the PC's.

Scarab Sages

I'm going to be super busy until Sunday afternoon. I'll still be working on bruno, but if I'm not done before then, know it isn't entirely my fault. :)

Scarab Sages

Good question, salsa. I'll go with the barbarian one. Not having precise shot from the go would hurt anyway. I'll get building this evening/tonight.

Scarab Sages

That's one build I'm looking at, yes. That one or the one just before it that gets Precise Shot at lvl 3. I can't decide if I like the barbarian flavor or the warpriest flavor more.

Scarab Sages

Salsa, the build I'm looking at is one of the less optimized ones. It's the oracle/warpriest build a few pages into the thread. I like the idea of becoming a priest for the philsophy of friendly, athletic competition. Someone who is less likely to kill another person and more likely to laugh the confrontation off after he's knocked them stupid with a well tossed rock. I'd be taping a trait to let me deal non-lethal damage without penalty.
*searches*
There isn't one...
New proposed trait (if you'll allow):
Rock-it Professional - Your training with Rock-it stones has less to some truly remarkable accuracy. You gain a +1 trait bonus to attack rolls with thrown weapons and you can deal nonlethal damage with Rock-it stones without penalty.

Pretty please?

Scarab Sages

Just popping in to say I'm still working. Life has slowed my progress a little, but I am still plugging away. :)

Scarab Sages

Salsa, I'm wanting to build a version of the Rock Thrower build outlined Here. What is your opinion on Rock proficiency? If I have Rock Throwing, am I proficient in handling rocks as weapons?

Scarab Sages

My concept: an al-Sunni semi-pro Rock-it player from Ironwall. He was recently passed over for entry into the pro teams, again, and has decided that his time in the game is over. However, he came out of his career with little to show for it. He dithered most of his small fortune away, as al-Sunni are known to do, and he is now in some hot water with a couple lenders. He's willing to do just about anything to get out of the hole and back to the lifestyle to which he is accustomed.

Scarab Sages

Dotity dot dot.
My character will be human, most likely. A former Ironwall athlete who has fallen on hard times. His sport? Rock-It Tag! Lacrosse meets rugby in this Ironwall sport. Imagine a mass wrestling match in the middle of a snowball fight where everyone is packing their balls!

One game of Nightmare Fuel is enough. Take that as a compliment, man. You write well enough for me to keep my lights on at night. Get any better and that may not be hyperbole.

Hehehe. Seems we have a reputation

Scarab Sages

Ya... Perfect childhoods are a requirement...

Scarab Sages

It is a Ironwall thing. The rich and posh consider it barbaric. The poor and downtrod may try to play in the streets, but they just don't have the resources to compete with Ironwall teams.
I envisioned several small, ball like stones of different colors (maybe 2, for simplicity). They may only be carried or passed backwards (rugby). It is played on a smaller pitch than football and the goal is smaller (lacrosse sized). The goal, however, is to hit a member of the opposing team with a rock in the goal area. Meaning you have to shove or trip someone into the area, then bean them.
That is a gross oversimplification, of course. ;)

But that was my rough idea.

Scarab Sages

The dwarves started it. It's mainly popular in Ironwall. Humans joined soon after its establishment as a professional sport and organizers are just now allowing orcs with certain handicaps.

Scarab Sages

Imagine Rugby mixed with Lacrosse and a dash of dodge ball.

Scarab Sages

Are you open to us adding in world elements in our stories? I'm looking to build an ex-pro player of a game called Rock-It Tag

Scarab Sages

Do you want character proposals now or later?

Scarab Sages

As to system, Dungeon World sends to work well on the forums for more narrative experiences. Pathfinder if you want mechanics to be more central. I'm not very familiar with those other systems.
