Ya, I saw that thread. Pay attention to the non-OP guys in that thread. They have the right of it.

And gestures/dances. Don't forget those!

Could dancing be an act of passion? All the movies say yes, but that would also imply that you could dance. Or at least gesticulate.

Can oozes be subject to this, or would they have to take ranks in Perform:dance in order to wobble about with rhythm... *Stops mind right there*

Osirion

A (race undecided) man of about 30 looks at the cherry girl. Looks around to make sure she's not waving at a friend, then tips his broad brimmed hat. A long, salt crusted trench coat flaps behind as the wind rustles the sails. His bearing is easy, and his smile quick.
<Name> was born and raised in the less hostile regions around the skirts of the Spellscar desert. It was there he learned the limitations of magic and the usefulness of Alkanstar's new invention: guns. But saying "less hostile" about the Spellscar is like saying one tooth in a shark's mouth is slightly more dull than the others.
It was from these dangers and several lost family members that he learned of his life's most valuable lesson so far. Life is to be enjoyed, lived! Not squandered with undue worry about the future.

When the Spellscar finally stole almost everything from him he set out to see if he could find joy again. Turns out, that life lesson is easier believed than done.

Eventually, his nose led him to the Shackles where he was hired on as help on a Rahaoundi vessel in exchange for food and board. It was here that he said goodbye to his horse and traveling companion Bullet the Deaf.
Just a few days out of port, his new job, the Man's Promise, was set upon by pirates. After a fierce battle in which he held the fore castle, he found himself press ganged under a cruel man named Plugg and his first mate, a wirey man named Scourge. These two did not like life, and they liked a certain group of their own crew even less. <Name> managed to stay out of the way long enough for this hated group to rise up and mutiny.

GM: What do you think?
How are you working mounts? If I got a shark (or other aquatic), could I Permanency an Air swim spell on it?
If not, Roc?

Osirion

I'll be applying soon with a Spellscar Drifter cavalier because I've always wanted to play a cowboy and this AP is the best fit there is (except maybe the one that happens in the Spellscar region, but whatever).

Huh?

If you don't particularly like writing for equipment, just put a big old statement out front saying that everything that follows is relative. Would that help?

Well, lethargic play tests always slow down results, so yes, frisky play tests are always better in the long run.

OP stated that he was ML 6th for [healing] powers, but I'm not seeing the race. What race is he?

This thread actually helped me out. I'm going the bard route right now, but I might be able to snag a re-build. Does anyone have any additional insights to offer?

That seems to depend on that other thread then. I hate to depend on them though.
I'd say yes as long as she doesn't weigh more than you can lift at the time and if you confirmed the grapple to move it, move it.

With a character like that I bet its fancy dinner parties. :)

Am I the only one who is all about asmodeus or is your anti-pally asmodean? (I'm totally unsure on the spelling there...)

Osirion

Male Father Nerd 3, Father 2, Obsessive Poster 2

I am Tolus Soulrender, and I am the first person in Talingarde's history to be convicted of serial murder of a single Priest of the Faith by proxy. The poor bum who signed the deal has already met his ax. He was at his rope's end anyway.

He got caught as he was removing His Holiness' spleen for the thirty-seventh time. They actually used Divination to prove I was the one who wrote the compulsion magic into the contract. Oh well. I'll be more careful next time.

My biggest goal? Desecrating the High Altar in the capital in the name of my lord Asmodeus. Haven't settled on the how just yet.

My biggest fear is the displeasure of my god.

I'll be reading the player's guide soon. My life is conspiring against a quick character creation time. :(

Osirion

That's all I can ask. :)

Osirion

Male Father Nerd 3, Father 2, Obsessive Poster 2

I have been trying to find a picture for this guy, but nothing I've seen fits the bill so far. I'll keep looking tomorrow.

Edit: . Here we go. Just envision more Asmodeus in the robes.

Osirion

Male Father Nerd 3, Father 2, Obsessive Poster 2

Closer to the life oracle, but yes. :)

Osirion

Male Father Nerd 3, Father 2, Obsessive Poster 2

Just need build numbers, then I'll get Tolus Soulrender stated up! :)

His method focuses on taking damage from allies and transferring it to foes or to himself in addition to the healing juggling. It should be fun!

By the way, if anyone could get an AOE heal like a channel, that would be amazing.

Note: Vitalists, like Psions, are a blend of prepared and spontaneous. I select from my power list every day and cast from those prepared spells spontaneously.

Osirion

Why yes. Yes I did. That's what I get for attempting to join two games at once... :(

Osirion

Great guide so far. It has really informed a build I'm working on.

I will critique the formatting though and second Cevah's suggestion. The current format is very hard to read on my IPhone as it doesn't zoom properly or allow horizontal scrolling when zoomed for some reason.

Osirion

Male Father Nerd 3, Father 2, Obsessive Poster 2

I'm not finding the slaughter lord anywhere. I can haz link?

The above comment was made with a chuckle and a wink. I realize now that I have read it later that the tone may have been lost in translation.

Osirion

FYI: my real life name is Gideon. I'm never going to be able to take that character seriously. I'll be thinking "I wouldn't do that..." the entire time.

Unless I would do that. Then things might get creepy.

Basic idea for a healer among the ranks of Asmodeus' clergy and my character's place. He's probably in prison just because he's a member of the church.

The flame of Asmodeus's power burns bright in his clergy. Wielding negative energy against the Chaos is their specialty, and none are more adept. However, Asmodeus is not so great a fool as to invest all his hope in his clergy, no matter how faithful. That's where I come in. I am ranked among the clergy, yes, but I am of a special role: Healing. Though Asmodeus grants healing magics through his will for the Clerics and Inquisitors, none excel at this niche than I and my brother Vitalists. We are the ones called when a Servant must not die.

Osirion

Male Father Nerd 3, Father 2, Obsessive Poster 2

No problem. I wasn't planning on archetyping it anyway. It's not a very complicated class, really, it just sounds like it at first.

Osirion

Male Father Nerd 3, Father 2, Obsessive Poster 2

Elan are the Psionic humans. They can use power points to enhance themselves slightly and they get bonus power points (if I recall correctly). They look like a slightly idealized human because they don't procreate. Candidates are selected and then made into Elan via a very secret process.

Anyway, if you want to look at them, cool. If not I can adapt.

The Vitalist is the Psionic healer. His key ability is the Collective that allows sharing of some buffs and, more importantly, healing. I can transfer any healing that occurs in the party to any other member of the collective (with permission). He does lack in removing conditions, however, which is his weak point. I can also only have 1/lvl people in the collective (not including myself). It's a really cool class that really comes into its own later in the game.
That's the basics. :)

Osirion

Male Father Nerd 3, Father 2, Obsessive Poster 2

Elan are human, or at least they look it. ;)

Oh well. Probably human then.

Osirion

Male Father Nerd 3, Father 2, Obsessive Poster 2

I should play my... No... Should I?

Elan Vitalist incoming. Muahaha! Healing was never so evil as this guy!

Osirion

Male Father Nerd 3, Father 2, Obsessive Poster 2

Anything! Including Psionics! *swoon*

So what happens if we die. Because I have at least one character that is mechanically destined to go out in a blaze of bodies.

Osirion

Male Father Nerd 3, Father 2, Obsessive Poster 2

Wait... I get to play Anything I want! Including Psyonics! *swoon*

This will take some thought. Oh my. My brain! It's absolutely cluttered with possibility!

Osirion

The dwarven alternate favored class gives +1/2 damage to the target of your challenge. :)

Sir Thunderblossom could have extracts, if needed, but the luck aspect of the sleuth really fits the character. Either route, he's a skill monkey all the way.

Osirion

Says average wealth up top, but nothing about crafting.

Osirion

In short, yes, but with a dash more pompous. :)

Osirion

I think your link is broken... It showed me a fist with a J on it.

Osirion

Alrighty. Looking at a gnome or halfling investigator (sleuth). High Cha. High int. all the skills. Combat will suck though. So will carrying capacity because Str is my logical dump leaving me with a score of 5. :(

How much is it to have a manservant carry your gear for you? Or perhaps he'll ride a donkey.

For some reason my subconscious made him into some kind of Imperial British gentleman on safari to the exotic lands. His name, therefore, is Sir Archibald Benedict Thunderblossom! And he will soon make his grand appearance in Sandpoint (maybe)!

Osirion

Thinking Gnome Investigator skill monkey with a sword cane, but undecided.

Olivius/Rhasuel here

31 points with a nasty bruise of a 7. Ouch.

I'm not sure what I want to play yet. Wanted to try the "dune drifter" gunslinger cavalier mix, but guns are a no-no. Maybe an ACG class. I'll get back to you. :)

Incubus in a grapple!

I think it was discussed at some length mid way through the thread (so far). It has come up.

Ya. Pretty much every one of the Dread's abilities is a fear effect. :)

So the last session of my home game took a new spin on the succubus in a grapple. Our wizard decided to telekenetic charge one of the NPCs into the flying succubus to drag her down to the ground so we could all get a piece of her.

It didn't work and I think he should have just tried to impale on his ranseur instead.

And here is an example of why Sorcerers are better than Wizards. Telekinetic Charge is a 4th level spell, Unnatural Lust is a 2nd level spell. I would be surprised if a 7th level Sorceress couldn't match Charisma with a Succubus in an encounter. Why move towards the Succubus when you can make her come to you? And once you're grappling with her, that's when the Rogue sneak-attacks her in the back.

...that's when the Rogue sneaks in from behind.

Fixed that for you.

Edit: got ninja'd by a Jiggy. :)

Osirion

I marked your thread to be moved. If it doesn't happen, try re-creating this in the suggestions and homebrew forum. They're generally good at these things.
I have no idea where to start, honestly. Maybe look at an example of the dragon he's emulating and see what you can glean from that?

So I shared this feat with my group. The general consensus is to remove the 1d4 rounds of shaken upon a failed save, and make it a combat maneuver instead of a feat.

Edit: oops. Upon a successful save.

Even better! :D

Agreed.

Also, it's terrifically cinematic.

Sorry, the internet has been declared a no-fun zone.

And the squad dedicated to make sure Martials stay away from the fun in out on full force.

This feat is spectacular, even if you stun yourself, because it makes for great stories. In the end, tell me a story where the barbarian strength surged and then went all Kool-Aid man into the BBEG's lair. That's where it's at.

Preach it, brother!
*ahem*
More seriously, this is the kind of thing that won't end an encounter 9/10 times because of the wording.
1) "all characters within 20 feet of your entry point" means you're probably entering alone. You need that round of stun just to make sure you're not mobbed by the mooks on the other side.

2) It's only 20 ft. The big bad is not normally that close. Sometimes, but not often.

3) DC is relatively low. It does scale, but remains on the weak side of acceptable. Actually, I see it doing what many abilities don't and getting slightly (read: slightly) stronger as levels increase, which is awesome to see for a martial.

Edit: I need to build a gunslinger cowboy switch-hitter with this...
BOOM "I'm lookin' for Jimmy the Snitch." Then spit on the floor as the tavern stares at you and your party charges in.
