With this many applicants I'm not surprised if a few details need to be posted a couple times. I envy salsa not at all right now.

Scarab Sages

Open enrollment actually closed a couple of days ago, if I remember correctly. He invoked the "or sooner" clause after receiving 30+ rolled arrays

Scarab Sages

I'm thinking my third will be a brawler. I've always wanted to try that class out. No real time to build it right now, so I'll be starting with two.

Scarab Sages

So, who wants to start a betting pool on how many gray hairs Salsa will sprout while trying to decide on a party?

Reading for the win! :)

Huzzah! May this job have job babies and keep you working for years to come!

Scarab Sages

You could just roll a die. Not because the die would really decide, but becasue you suddenly realize what you actually want while that die is rolling. :)

Or it works that way for me at least.

Scarab Sages

Just do you know, Adahn, I'm a real life interpreter for the deaf, so I'll enjoy seeing you play a deaf person. :)

Scarab Sages

I freak out when I have to choose from more than 10, thus the four tables of the same game situation. :P

I may close it earlier if I wind up with a whole mess of great submissions.

He may have to invoke this clause soon.

Scarab Sages

Heh. I've run four tables of a game before. That was rough, let me tell you. Not all of them are finished yet either!

Scarab Sages

Now that I have my submission built, I find myself in that most anxious of times: Waiting.

Scarab Sages

33 applicants. Well, 33 sets of rolls. That might be the the most I've ever seen.

Scarab Sages

Bard and Skald in the same party = Epic. Their bonuses stack. :D

Scarab Sages

Then I will be working on Pinnochio next. :)

Scarab Sages

Eh, he's in quite a bit of flux right now. I'm alternating in my head between the two. One offers almost unstoppable force while the other fills in some of my weaknesses.

Scarab Sages

On second thought, we should probably see who's accepted before we weave backstory.

Scarab Sages

F. Castor: I was looking at going Champion with my Skald and taking Stolen Fury as well. The player's guide recommends that we were a part of the same ritual and escaped together if we both take that trait. Is this ok with you? You could have sought to control the rage while I embraced and weaponized it?

Scarab Sages

5d6 ⇒ (5, 5, 6, 1, 6) = 23 =22
5d6 ⇒ (1, 2, 2, 5, 1) = 11 =10
5d6 ⇒ (4, 2, 1, 5, 5) = 17 =16
5d6 ⇒ (2, 4, 1, 1, 4) = 12 =11
5d6 ⇒ (2, 3, 1, 5, 4) = 15 =14
5d6 ⇒ (6, 6, 5, 3, 6) = 26 =23

I can live with that. Probably going melee Skald who uses his mighty great club as a percussion instrument. He literally chants ancient battle hymns to the sound of shattering skulls. :)

Probably going War Drummer and Fated Champion archetypes.
Probably going defensive on my mythic options to shore up my defence.

By the way, you mentioned 24 in a stat? :P

Scarab Sages

Honestly, I'm having trouble finding the time to build three characters right now. Is it ok if I go ahead with Regin and build the others as time allows?
If no then I'll just submit as they are finished. I just don't want to hold things up with my slowness.

Scarab Sages

Ok, based on presented characters so far, looks like my first entry will be arcane. I'll do my best to roll up Regin Ald the Arcanist tomorrow!

Scarab Sages

Today has turned out to be much busier than anticipated, but I'm working on it. :)

Scarab Sages

I will be using the Aliases Olivius Telraven, Regin Ald, and Pinnochio

I don't know for sure what I'm building, but right now I'm thinking Divine Frontline (Inquisitor?, warpriest?, Evangleist cleric?), Arcane full-caster (probably Archanist, possibly the white kind), and Stealthy (ninja or slayer) respectively.

Scarab Sages

Choon, checking in. My day is currently free tomorrow, so I'll get creating using old aliases. You know I couldn't turn down a game from you two. :)

I'll be sure to hunt down your IRL address and give it to the therapist I'll probably need to hire if I have BOTH of you messing with my head...

Ok, sorry I've been silent here for a couple days. My wife is pregnant and my time had dwindled a bit. Good news is I have one module I'm running ending now and two others ending relatively soon so my number of games I'm responsible for will go down to 3. I plan to have an update done in here in the morning (or around 9 hours from now).

Scarab Sages

Why friend totem, if you don't mind starting?

Just so you know, Mr Secret Wizard, I'll be applying your Strix archetype to a Strix Paladin GM-PC that is in a Skull and Shackles PbP game I just started. I'll give you some feedback on how the low levels work out. The high levels will take us a while (years, if it holds up) to achieve, so feedback on those levels might require a different medium. :)

Scarab Sages

I am intrigued by your Strix work, especially if the wing clipping is required. Making him a Paladin is just anticipatory icing on the fascination cake.

Scarab Sages

Strix anything, please. Because an underwhelming fighter archetype just isn't enough love for these guys, IMHO.

Scarab Sages

+30 skill ring is cheap at lvl 20. I think it's a competence bonus.

The Great Bridge of Sorrows - This marvel of engineering and legendary piece of art is a single span bridge that seems to defy nature as it stretches for half of a mile across the narrowest point of the legendary canyon of the same name, and is wide enough for six wagons to pass abreast. The surface is carved in meticulously detailed figures of legend and documents their exploits. The pure white marble construction is practically dripping in magic wards designed to protect from weather, vandals, attacks, and any other threat that might come against it.

The "Sorrows" portion of the name is the only surviving record of the multitude of broken skeletons of unlucky slave laborers lay at the bottom of the canyon directly under the bridge.

Scarab Sages

Care to elaborate? Giving allies even a few rounds of feats like precise strike (if your is big on melee) sounds cool to me. Especially it can with Martial Flexibility.

Scarab Sages

What about Brawler. The Exemplar archetype even gets tactician and a weaker bard buff, if I remember correctly

+1. Things get messy otherwise.

"Favored Class Bonus"

Edit: 34 second ninja!

Advanced Constructs; psionic wrote:


Your construct can perform tasks for you. This can include such tasks as cleaning, cooking, or setting up camp, or any other activity that requires a DC 10 or lower skill check. An astral construct with this option does not need to stay close to the manifester and will continue following any given order until given other instructions. You can select this menu option multiple times. Each time, the DC of skill checks the construct can attempt increases by 2. An astral construct with this option that is not used in combat has a duration of 1 hr./lvl.. If it later enters combat, its duration resets to 1 round/lvl., but suffers a -2 penalty to itsĀ attack rolls.

This is a quote from a psionic feat by Dreamscarred Press. It's not a perfect fit for your idea, but may serve to get a feel for baseline power of your constructs. Skills this construct could complete are DC 10+2 per lvl, so it is flexible enough to create just about anything you could want. Just give the man creating these constructs this feat, house rule that it applies to normal constructs, and presto!

Really, their stats matter very little if they won't contribute meaningfully to combat.

Scarab Sages

Dreamscarred press is a good one. I allow their content when the setting permits. I haven't had exposure to or read much from other publishers, so I can't give a solid opinion about them.

Scarab Sages

+1 to Frodo there. There is a (perhaps literal) library of hardback books and other supplements connected to Pathfinder, but you only NEED the player's guide and beastiary 1. Everything else will add options and versatility and complexity to the game, but if you don't want that or feel that it would be too much to handle, feel free to not use them.
It would also be wise to make it clear which books are in play for your player's use. The SRD is a wonderful resource, but does contain many dozens of options that aren't in the core player's handbook rules.

Scarab Sages

*Claxon's DM raises his hand*

I can't speak for the other players in the game I DM, but me not dispelling things is mostly because I never think to. I'm usually too focused on my baddies surviving long enough to do something cool or interesting.

Not only that, my Ulfen friend. When I sing, the Spirits themselves join us to battle!

I also just realized that the Belzken war drummer one stacks! But I'd loose pretty much all the bardic knowledge aspects of my character. Choices choices.

Scarab Sages

Male Father Nerd 3, Father 2, Obsessive Poster 2

Right now working up a Fated Champion Skald focusing on a spirits of the ancestors theme. He'll probably take the Spirit Totem line as his shared rage powers. Still working though.

Scarab Sages

Male Father Nerd 3, Father 2, Obsessive Poster 2

Skald it is! I'll get right to work!

Scarab Sages

Male Father Nerd 3, Father 2, Obsessive Poster 2

Well, I wouldn't want to conflict with a previous character. Maybe I'll archetype it. I really need to look over the other character to make something that meshes.

Scarab Sages

Male Father Nerd 3, Father 2, Obsessive Poster 2

I'm actually surprised no one has introduced a Skald yet. What are your feelings on the Skald, Mr. GM?

Scarab Sages

Male Father Nerd 3, Father 2, Obsessive Poster 2

You know what all these could benefit from? A Bard. Or maybe an Archer.

I'm still thinking. So far all my ideas are really spread thin on ability scores.

Hmm... I'm pretty sure this just became a play by post. Bonus points if the rope is attached to the post beforehand.

Scarab Sages

The goal the night is survival so I'd use any and all information I could glean to choose the best stealth gear, camo myself for the environment I'm entering (if I know) including scent and heat, then hide like my life depended it. Preferably up a tree or underground with a good secondary escape route.

Seriously, fighting only makes you a target.

Scarab Sages

Sometimes that level of detail just isn't in pathfinder. If you wish to add a quantity of pitons that is your call as a GM. Mostly, I think it's handled by a single check with a high DC, possibly with a penalty for not having "enough". You could even do several checks if you wanted to represent different sections of the climb, but, again, this is mostly left up to the DM.

What level are you thinking? Each of these builds will have their own peak, so maybe just build them out to whatever level at which they really come together.
For example, I expect the barbarian to peak rather early in the build, but the Tetori will take a while.
