I came, I saw, I joined the chorus:

Thread new post link counter thingie is GONE! Apocalypse!! AHHGHHH!!

Seriously tough, glad to see you're on it. :)

Scarab Sages

Events in life are forcing me to withdraw from this recruitment. I hope y'all have fun now, ya her'. :)

Scarab Sages

Ya. My bad. :)

Scarab Sages

I like Divine Surge because it's just so awesome feeling. It's not just "you die slower", it's "win now or you're done".

Scarab Sages

No doubt.

Scarab Sages

It's a little after the fray dice. P21 just under the picture with the dragon. Basically, of you go down you have a once per level chance to come back in a big way, but if you fail you are almost certainly dead.

Scarab Sages

I like the fray die as well. Also the Divine Surge is very thematic and I was interested in seeing that used.

Scarab Sages

In that case I'll re-tool that barbarian archer concept and flesh both out over the next few days.

Scarab Sages

Awesome! I'll cook up an alias tomorrow morning and be ready. :)

Scarab Sages

Huh. Interesting. Thanks for the info. :)

Now to wait inn jittery anticipation.

Scarab Sages

Define "cheap". Are we talking a cup of coffee or do I need to mortgage my kidneys?

Scarab Sages

There's a reason I never got into that game. Sounds fantastic. Also sounds like it would drain my life away and take my wallet to just to spite me.

Scarab Sages

I am eager to get this going as well. I have plans. :)

Scarab Sages

Variant Multiclassing. Basically you give up half of your feats for some of the class features from other classes.

Scarab Sages

I suspect that the entirety of Godbound will not be used. I think he mentioned earlier that he disliked the combat system, so we don't have to worry about that.

Scarab Sages

1 person marked this as a favorite.

I don't know. Layering a system like godbound on pathfinder is complex enough for me. Start throwing in things like spheres and things will get super messy super fast.

Scarab Sages

It has been a while, true

Scarab Sages

I'm bad too, but I just keep playing where it doesn't matter and I enjoy myself. :)

Scarab Sages

I vote for 7-8. Most character concepts are fully fleshed out at that point and you move into facing greater threats than, say, a town or city could face. I would say 8 for the clerics out there as that's when domains get their second ability.

Scarab Sages

I must say... that sounds Fantastic. Mainly because I've always wanted to play a Holy Vindicator and this seems like an epic time to do it.

Scarab Sages

Totally. I was just curious about a kickoff timeline. :)

Scarab Sages

count me as interested as well.

Scarab Sages

How long are you planning on running recruitment, monkeygod?

Scarab Sages

Well, you do now have several names to put into your contacts. :)

Scarab Sages

From Monkeygod's post, ya. At least three submitted gods (including Monkey's) have origins in the previous Universe, but I think nothing of substance besides themselves actually survived what I'm imagining as a Big Crunch followed by a Big Bang-esque event.

Scarab Sages

Oh, and my LoL tag is Choonma. :)

Scarab Sages

We are supposed to collaborate or at least know of each other, I think. The loner god is the lonely god is the god who doesn't play long. I'm not sure how Monkeygod feels about pre-selection banter, however.

Scarab Sages

Another revision of Zakaz to make him more suitable for creation level play.

Name: Zakaz, the Progenitor, the Nomad, the Beastfather, The Apex of Predators
Played By: Choon
Domains (Portfolios): Plant (growth), Animal (Beasts)
Themes: God of the Hunt, hunters, assassins, and predatory animals
Alignment: True Neutral
Attack: 3d6
Defense: 2d6
HP: 50
Zakaz is the ultimate hunter, an apex predator of divine power who spawns beasts of powerful appetites wherever he roams. Before him the grasses rise and the herds flourish, behind him the bones bleach and the trees fade. He sprang into being when the first Tiger, Lion, Crocodile, Orca, Harpy Eagle, and Komodo Dragon all feasted on the first great deer upon the first shores of the world. All hunts belong to him. All acts of stalking prey, be it wild, tame, or sapient, is a moment of worship to his name.

Scarab Sages

That is true. We are fledgling gods, meaning you can only have two domains and one Portfolio for each domain.

Scarab Sages

I have edited my god to better comply with that domain clarification.

Name: Zakaz, the Progenitor, the Nomad, the Beastfather
Played By: Choon
Domains (Portfolios): Plant (growth), Animal (Beasts)
Themes: God of Animals and Monsters
Alignment: True Neutral
Attack: 3d6
Defense: 2d6
HP: 50
Zakaz is more of an assumption than a proven fact. Life has to come from somewhere and much of the animal life, especially beastial life, has is source in no other god. So there must be a divine source creating it, though none can hazard a guess as to why. The god must be primordial, wild, and not used to communicating. That's not to say that it never will, just that there are a lot of hints (most of which feature large teeth and claws) pointing to a place of divine force that has yet to show itself.

Scarab Sages

A problem there is a portfolio is related to a specific domain and it doesn't seem to be that you can have a portfolio without the associated domain. So if "Gain Portfilio" were to be an action I would propose that you may only gain Portfolios related to domain you already posess.

Scarab Sages

Ok, after reading more, and with the help above, it seems that domains and portfolios are the mechanic preventing gods from being too similar. One example given in rules V1 is Gorum and Iomadae (as Loup mentioned). Both have the War domain, but their Portfolio is very different.

In rules v.1 two gods were not allowed to have the same Domain(portfolio) combo. And each Domain had to have an attached Portfolio.

I don't see those items explicitly stated in v.2, but it may be a good guideline.

Scarab Sages

Good points. I'm at work so my research is gong slowly. Thanks!

Scarab Sages

As far as I can tell right now the words Domain and Portfolio are used interchangeably. In pathfinder they are separated, but I'm not seeing individual rules for each right now, leading me to believe that your Portfolio is the sum of your Domains.

Scarab Sages

Most of us are still getting used to how this system works so I'm not sure. I'll check into it.

Scarab Sages

Name: Zakaz, the Progenitor, the Nomad, the Beastfather

Scarab Sages

Correction, my god will be up tomorrow. It's getting too late now and I need to hit the hay.

Scarab Sages

Awesome! Here we go. I'll have my god up soon. As for now, do we want to talk about the AP gain rate? I know there was a suggestion that one could gain AP by other means besides weekly in the interest check thread.

Begeting another god, in my opinion, shouldn't be something that costs AP. If another player wants to join they shouldn't have to wait three weeks before their parent god scrapes together enough AP to have them. I think the "must be a player" stipulation is enough.

Scarab Sages

What? No. If I'm doing this thing, which I think I am now,

Meet:
Twang, the Littlest Barista!
Yordle Bard (Archaeologist/Gesha)
There is one thing that mines, battlefields, state rooms, weddings, funerals, and weekends have in common. Drinks. Twang grew up in a bar and she's picked up a few tricks. Like how you pick a lock and make the perfect margarita. Exactly the skills you need when you discover your calling is to bring liquid courage to those who need it most.

Theme song: It's Five O'Clock Somewhere

In reality I tend to do best with supports like Naut and Morgana and am currently relishing Gallio's rework preview. If not support I play jungle with Yi or Renegar. Usually I just do ARAM because I rarely have the time for a real game.

Scarab Sages

....

I might be able to build that...

Scarab Sages

Oh. Well. Apparently I fell asleep at some point in this thread. My apologies.

Looks line you do have choices after all, Monkeygod.

Scarab Sages

Twang, the Littlest Ballista.

Twang is a Yortle of many words. Most of them are nonsense. He seems to have no trouble as a mercenary, however. All he does is give a demonstration of his pet bow Creak and all the bosses take notice. Creak is easily twice Twang's size and most trained archers are completely incapable of drawing the thing. Twang though, he draws it, and heaven help whoever's on the business end.

Going Yortle Barbarian (Primal Hunter) wielding a comp. Longview with the biggest Mighty modifier I can get. This guy will be almost pure Dex and Str with a bright blue beard and an unexplainable love of knocking things over with arrows.

Still working on the other requirements. :)

Oh, my apologies. I missed you saying that.

Scarab Sages

From the lack of previous responce, looks like it's you and me then.

Scarab Sages

Here's my dot. I have an archer concept ready, just need to build it out. Who says Barbarian archers can't be a thing? :D

Scarab Sages

Sure? To be clear I know even less of that system than I do LoC as I've only made it to the Words mechanic. I guess I could try to get up to speed if, as you say, I have some time.

Scarab Sages

Ok. If you'll have me I'll be one of your mods and get to work on digesting that ruleset.

I started reading the Godbound PDF and it sounds really cool, but I'm not certain I have the time to join both. We'll see. For now, though, definitely LoC.

Scarab Sages

Seeing as no one is jumping at the opportunity, I'll volunteer to mod. I pledge to bury myself in the rules until I'm mod material. I have participated in freeform RP based things like this before, but it's been a while. I'll do my best to get up to speed if you deem me acceptable.

I had honestly never heard the word "Heinlein". Looks like I need to add another author to my reading list. :)

This is that place! :)
