Hi, I always wanted to play with this system, and I know it's not very common so, this is the free supplement for everyone to read so they understand the system and how simple it really is.
This is just checking interest for someone to try the system or if you have it actually play it.
Enough interest of course will make me create another thread IF I have to. I persnally just rather use this one to not clog the recruitment thread.
The campiang is during a "low fantasty" ancient china during the Yellow Turbans Rebellion/Rise of Dong Zhuo. This period is not know for their wuxia/chinese boxing/shaolin in case you were wondering. That doesn't mean you can't play a martial artist, just now you will have the short end of the stick when fighting against someone with a weapon.
This is more of a check for a Wrestling (WCW/WWE) type of game, players take the role of wrestlers in a brand new wrestling company called Professional Championship Wrestling (PCW).
The rules are from "Squared Circle" If you do not have the books, the system is rather easy and I can post the classes, moves and skills without much issue, as long as a decent size of wrestlers are interested in fighting for the title.
Looking for possible 5 to 10 players.
A raven arrives to the rookery bearing a message, Maester Lucen sees the raven coming without a problem, do House Naelaron has a simple rookery with few raven's still, it can only be from an ally or the Lord Paramount.
Upon closer inspection it bear a wax seal of House Tully.
Message (Lucen only)
To the noble houses of Westeros: greetings in the name of the Lord Paramount of the Riverlands, Gormen Tully. Liege Lord of the Trident has declared a tourney shall be held in honor of the Spring fields and Wedding of his son Ser Bryce Tully on the fields of Riverrun
to begin two weeks hence.
All vassals of the Crown are invited to attend and do honor to their names.
*Seal of House Tully*
The year is 124 After Landing (AL), with tensions running high - King Viserys Targaryen is old and infirm, and followers of the two most powerful women in the Kingdoms have already begun to maneuver themselves for the succession. Queen Alicent, a daughter of House Hightower, has given King Viserys a son and leads the Andal traditionalist faction known as the "Greens". They insist a son of any age should come before a woman.
Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen leads the opposing "Blacks", named for the striking black gown she worn in 111 AL's tourney, in opposition to the green dress down by Queen Alicent. Rhaenyra is the King's oldest surviving child, born from his first marriage to an Arryn noble.
Players have the option of representing a noble house of the seven kingdoms.
With tensions high, the opportunities for advancement and disaster are high - will you serve the traditionalist Greens, take the side of the Blacks and the eldest daughter, strive for peace or for personal gain? Or perhaps, in the game of thrones they are not players at all but simply pieces...
This is a dangerous time and this will be a dangerous game!
However, particularly dangerous events will be marked in the thread title with an asterisk symbol (*) - these will also restore a spent destiny point: testing your destiny against danger can strengthen it.
The tone will be similar to the novels - stories may have a mature tone and adult language may be deployed. Particularly mature themes/unpleasant events may be alluded to but should be handled off-screen or by a "fade to black" in the scene.
If the events of a story or actions of another character makes a player uncomfortable, please don't hesitate to contact me.
This is a recruitment more than an interest check, I also have House Rules for the purpose of PBP and help run things a bit more smoothly.
I require at least 1 post per day.
I do not accept characters younger than Young Adults and Middle Aged.
You will start in the Riverlands, unless majority of players wish for somewhere else.
Let us create a great House, I need minimum 3 players and no more than 6.
GM W.R. Monger
Welcome if you know how to do a full character please do so. Remember you are in Goldar, and I require a small background, nothing big or extensive.
I will fill in extra details.
You are members of the Völsung Clan, you live near the border with Gabriel around the Fonrad Forest. You share the riches of the trade and the forest with other smaller clans and towns that dot the border.
Patron Aityr: Algiz
Veenhuigen is the largest town neighboring Helenia and Gabriel. The town used the be the staging operations of old to attack Helenia and Gabriel for pillage and plunder. While it still preserves some of it's old flare of a war town, today is used more as a trading center and mercenaries, given the great profit at trade between Goldar and both, Helenia and Gabriel.
Inevitably this makes Veenhuigen a target for bigger clans to take over to fuel their armies and coffers, which has made the Chieftain lose revenue from mercenaries as it's own clansmen are now guarding the town itself. It's a booming place, and attracts many clanless nomads as well as traders from all Barren Icy Lands. The Skuling and Baldisung have been making push and shove against the Völsung to recruit them, or take the town for themselves.
The mile-long green strip of the Forad Forest separates the southern part of Goldar with the principality of Gabriel.
Cultural Roots & Social Background
Erling or Slamo: 66-100
GM W.R. Monger
You are traveling in the Iron Gauntlet frigate, sharing the barracks with the Desolum Regiments. that are also going to Telum III, where the initial strike has gained a semi-stable foothold in the planet.
All personnel has been summoned to the Assimularum, where you are then guided to a dark room and shown to a sitting area, were a giant holo -display screen with a planet spinning slowly awaits patiently for you to take a seat.
GM W.R. Monger
The regiment's was first formed from the "Night Rippers" hive gang, which led a rebellion against Mordion's planetary governor, Commander Varren. The rebellion was put down, and its leader, Mahagon Jhume, executed, but his followers were considered a potentially valuable fighting force and rather than being executed, they were inducted into the Imperial Guard. The "Night Rippers" are now the formal regiments of Mordion and continue to use their gang symbols on their banners.
Mordion Stalker is a predator that lives in the darkest areas of the Hive, were it thrives harassing it's victims, until it decided to strike at the last moment. This reptile is highly aggressive in the wild, but proved to be useful for war. Riders normally coat their jackets with the stalker saliva to be considered a hatchling to them, which allows their riders to move with their stalkers as if they were one. The other riders are just viewed as members of the pack by other stalkers.
Night Rippers must coat their flak jacket once every 3 days or so, unless they have seen combat then it must be done as soon as possible, after all in time they will figure out you are prey.
Mordion 540th Rough Riders
There's a feeling I get when I look to the horizon
We stand at the dawn of a new Age. The Holy Empire of Abel has been split asunder, the walls of reality themselves shudder. Thousands have already died in the chaos, and now Goldar waits with baited breath for the next terror to strike.
The ties to the Holy Empire have been broken, as well as their priesthood leaving only a small number of preachers and priest to minister their temples.
The signs of war are everywhere, the Clans raid, pillage and plunder the neighboring countries. Border skirmishers with Haufman, and Hendell is sponsoring one of the Clans to bring Goldar under their rule. While demons and the undead walk attacking villages and worse seem to travel the countryside, yet it is a darker and sinister foe that looms underneath it all…
This is a time of uncertainty and the children of the Great Beasts stir as if they have heard a call from the Devourer to raise.
I am looking for 3 - 4 players, I might even accept a 5th but I highly doubt it, unless I have a very strange party composition.
You are from Goldar, that means you belong to a Clan, in this case you are of the Völsung Clan.
Further information will be available as we create characters and for background purpose, once we get the stats and race, I will give you information of Goldar and if you are a Nephilim, and don't have the books I will provide with information for it.
For character creation we will roll 8d10, any rolls of 1,2,3,4 can be re-rolled. Once you are done depending on a character's stat line I will allow you to change your lowest score (5) for a 9. then proceed to place your numbers where you think it would serve you best.
If you have questions what is best for the character class you have don't be ask.
Here is when you should make your choice if you wish to play as a Human or as a one of the many Nephilims.
After that let us continue in the discussion thread.
This is a system not a lot of people are familiar with and is very rich and dense. Character creation can be a tad long sometimes since you are not used to the system and it's a d100 dice and d10 for certain rolls.
It is now the year 989. Magic is returning with strength to Gaia, and the line that separates the world of Wake with ours is becoming evermore fragile. The Empire has shattered into tiny pieces, and a three-way battle for control is about to commence between the Empress, the Lords of War, and the Church. The souls of the supernatural beings who have died over the course these last centuries are being reborn in human children, giving rise to the birth of the Nephilim. In addition, entities that have survived for eras hidden from man have realized that the moment has arrived to manifest themselves in the world.
All of them can feel it. It has begun.
Well this is now my improved version of my ongoing project of creating my campaign setting on the awesome world of Final Fantasy Tactics and other titles that form up the Ivalice Alliance games, but the setting itself is after the War of the Lions event.
right now I worked on adding some more prestige classes to bring it to a total of 15. I'm still missing the Astrologer, Mimic and the Onion Knight.
A lot of people have helped already and I thank them all as well, I mostly need people help to polish this classes and hopefully playtest them.
I will keep adding more things like background and such if people really want to read the fluff and regions. I also need help with the Bestiary but that one I will post later on.
Hi! I'm looking for 1 to 3 (Max) players for a campaign.
Players are currently beginning the second part of this adventure (highly social (with some combat).
The current level is 4, 30pt buy plus some added rules proper of the Homebrew.
For those interested this Final Fantasy Tactics setting (not the Advance). Campaign is situated in Romanda.
Yes the zodiac signs are important and you would need to pick one.
There are new spells also.
The only evil alignment I accept is LE and I'm still somewhat not happy unless a very good explanation as of what kind of LE and why.
There are prestige classes, some archetypes are regular classes as well as some minor changes (mostly names) to the base classes.
Example: Magus - Red Mage.
Those who are interested I would give more information as requested.
Hi! I was just wondering if someone has an honest review of this game. So far I only know it d100 and it has a ridiculous amount of customization for NPC/PC alike and rules to create all sorts of creatures, magic, fighting styles and stuff like that, but that is what I've heard but I would like a review of sots from someone who has played it before on how difficult it is to learn or how complex and the setting to a certain extent.
As the title says this is my take on the Final Fantasy Tactics Campaign but wanted more feedback on it (as well as on the other ones that I might post later).
I present the:
Skills: Knowledge (Arcana) 5 Ranks, Spellcraft 5 Ranks
Feats: Combat Expertise, Improved Initiative, Weapon Proficiency Katana
Special: Cast 2nd level arcane spells, able to wear light armor
Equipment: Masterwork Katana
Alignment: Any Lawful.
Level BAB Fort Reflex Will Special Casting
Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Samurais are proficient with all simple and martial weapons. A samurai is also proficient with all types of armor but not shields. Samurai do not incur in arcane spell failure for using their Iaido on medium or heavy armor.
Iaido (Su): Samurai may call on a Katana's spirit for assistance at any point during battle. However, this talent is not without its price. Each use of Iaido has a chance of breaking the katana giving it the broken condition. Broken katanas cannot be used to perform Iaido. After every use of Iaido, the samurai must make a fortitude save for his katana, with a DC equal to 10 + the number times the samurai has used Iaido that day. The katana uses either its enhancement bonus or the samurai's fortitude save, whichever is higher. A failed save means the katana is reduced to half its hit points and has the broken condition.
A Samurai can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + Intelligence modifier. All Iaido techniques have a range of 15 ft radius centered on the samurai unless stated otherwise. The save DC for the Iaido techniques is DC 10 + ½ Samurais level + Intelligence modifier when applicable. A Samurai’s sword spirits are various and they can’t master all of them, every two levels after the first a samurai may choose a spirit to release from his blade, this choice cannot be changed once made. The Samurai must choose a sword spirit they want to release from the following list:
Spirit Blade (Asura): A technique causing an unseen specter-sword to slash at the targets. Targets within the area of effect are slashed by an invisible weapon. The weapon deals 1d8 force damage + 1 point per 2 Samurai levels. The Samurai makes a single attack using his Intelligence instead of his strength modifier to calculate the attack against every target in range.
Binding Darkness (Kotetsu): A technique losing a wave of howling dark spirits. Targets within the area of effect are grappled by spirits using the Samurai CMB to attack their targets and making 1d6 of typeless damage to them. Creature’s entagled by Binding Darkness can make a Reflex save to escape once they have been cought. This effect lasts for 1d4 +1 rounds.
Verse of Oblivion (Osafune): A technique that sends the whispering dead to feed on magical energies. Butterflies composed of spirit fill the area of effect for a number of rounds equal to the samurai's level. Anyone other than the samurai that attempts to cast a spell in the area while the butterflies persist takes 1d6 damage. This damage increases to 2d6 when the samurai reaches level 3 and increases by another 1d6 every two levels beyond that. Casting defensively will prevent the damage. The butterfly field remains centered on the samurai for its duration. The butterflies do not otherwise obstruct sight or actions taken in the midst.
Rain of Wisdom (Murasame): A technique of raining tears of an enlightened soul that restores life. This ability works like a cure light wounds, mass. The samurai treats his samurai level as his caster level.
Cloudsea Curse (Ame-no-Murakumo): A technique releasing a phantom of pure mist to attack the target. A mist attacks the targets within range dealing 1d4 +1 points of cold damage per Samurai level. Opponents can make Reflex save to take only half damage.
Greater Iaido (Su): At 7th level, and every two levels thereafter, a Samurai can choose one of the following Greater Iaido in place of a normal one.
Purifying Breeze (Kiyomori): A technique bestowing the protection of its effervescent life force. Allies within range gain a deflection bonus to AC equal to the samurai's Intelligence modifier and gain Fast Healing 2. This effect lasts for a number of rounds equal to 1/2 the samurai's level (minimum 1).
Doomed Aspirations (Muramasa): A technique only a living soul will quell its tumult. The bloodthirsty spirit of the sword rushes outward to attack its enemies, the Samurai resolves a standard melee attack and damage for every enemy within range. This attack also grants the samurai temporary hit points equal to the damage dealt. The opponents can make a Fortitude save to deny the Samurai the temporary hit points. This temporary hit points last for a number of rounds equal to the samurai level. Creatures that fail the save are also fatigued for 1d4 rounds. This ability does not stack on itself.
Sanguine Blossom (Kiku-ichimonji): A technique wreaking havoc with its all-consuming hatred.
Ethereal Embrace (Masamune): A technique bestowing physical healing and increased speed. This ability works like cure moderate wounds, mass, also grants all allies within range haste for one round. The samurai treats his samurai level as his caster level.
Raging Inferno (Chirijiraden): A technique which pursues the living as a band of blue flame. A Samurai releases a wave of blue flames by channeling their inner strength of his katana against his enemies; this causes a burst that affects enemies within range dealing 5d6 points of fire damage. Creatures affected can make a Reflex save at the start of their turn to avoid taking 4d6 points of fire damage and extinguish the flames. Every time a creature fails its Reflex save they take one less dice of damage until they reach 1d6. This effect lasts until the Reflex save is successful. If Raging Inferno is used again on the same creature that is still affected by it, the dice stack and increases the difficulty by two. This only applies if the Raging Inferno comes from the same Samurai.
Iai Cut (Ex): The Samurai moves with flawless speed and accuracy, delivering a devastating one-two strike against a hapless opponent. When making a full-attack action with a katana, the samurai can make one additional attack. All attack rolls take a -2 penalty when using Iai Cut.
First Strike (Ex): A trained Samurai is ready for combat at a moment’s notice. This ability gives the Samurai a bonus to Initiative equal to its Intelligence modifier.
Shirahadori (Ex): As long as a samurai is wielding a katana and has no shield equipped, he gains a +4 shield bonus to AC. This ability functions only when the samurai has at least one remaining use of Iaido for the day.
Doublehand (Ex): Samurai have mastered blending their arcane and martial arts together while wielding their favoured katana. Samurai are treated as having a free hand while wielding a katana in two hands.
Bonecrusher (Ex): When a samurai suffers a melee attack that reduces him to zero or fewer hit points, he can, as an immediate action, spend a daily use of Iaido to make a counterattack against his attacker as he falls. The samurai makes the attack at his full attack bonus. At level 5, this attack always deals maximum damage. At level 8, this attack is automatically a critical threat (the samurai must still roll to confirm).
Spells per Day: At the indicated levels, a samurai gains new spells per day as if he had also gained a level in a arcane spellcasting class he belonged to before adding the prestige class. He does not, however, gain any other benefit a character of that class would have gained, except for additional spells per day, spells known (if he is a spontaneous spellcaster), and an increased effective level of spellcasting. If a character had more than one arcane spellcasting class before becoming a samurai, he must decide to which class he adds the new level for purposes of determining spells per day.
Hi! I'm currently attempting to create my own take on Mech's or as I will call them Mechanized Golem:
I will start only with Large size units and then moving to Huge once I set all the proper prices. Remember that this are only Uncommon things as to not everyone can afford them but they are fielded by the armies of every kingdom in sufficient numbers so the prices won't be as steep as for a regular Golem or something
MG (Mechanized Golem)
SI-MG001 (Standard Issue - Mechanized Golem 001)
Comm.: Enables communication with allied M.G. up to 60ft and within line of sight.
Boosters: Increase the Mech’s base land speed by 10 for up to 10 rounds each day. The speed effect duration need not be consecutive rounds.
Speed: Increase the Mech’s base land speed by 20
Flying Enhancements: This enhancement can take many forms depending on the designers preference but they have the same effect. They give a +4 bonus on Fly skill checks and can fly three times per day for up to 5 minutes per flight. This effect is the same as the Fly spell.
Armor Augmentation: Increases the Mech’s Armor Class by +1 up to a maximum of +5.
Stealth: These additions enable a Mech to move more nimbly and make less noise, removing the noisy quality from the Mech.
Ability Boost: This procedure boosts the Mech’s physical capabilities granting +2 bonus to an ability score (Strength or Dexterity). This procedure can be applied multiple times and it stacks.
Aedis Targeting Enhancement: These implement grant a +1 Competence bonus on attack rolls whenever using ranged weapons.
Aedis Targeting Disruptor: These implement grants a 20% miss chance on ranged attacks against the wearer. This effects works similar to the blur spell. It functions continually.
SPS (Scrying Positioning System): This Aedis additions to the regular Mech basic navigations allows the Mech Pilot to scry his environment up to 200ft away. Opponents may resist the scrying by making a Will DC 16. This ability functions like the scrying spell. In addition the Mech Pilot always knows were north is and cannot get lost.
Anti-Detection: This Aedis inlet stone protects the Mech from scrying and magical location. If a divination spell is attempted against the wearer, the caster of the divination must succeed on a caster level check (1d20 + caster level) against a DC 20.
Night Vision: The lenses of the Mech are made of a special crystal. Even though the lenses are opaque, then placed on the Mech, they enable the pilot to see normally and also grant him 60ft darkvision.
Spell Resistant Coating: This coating is placed over a Mech to grant spell resistance.
Structural Resistance: This structural modification when used on a mech, grants damage reduction 5/Ballistics.
H.E.L.P. (Hazardous Environmental Life Protection): This special addition to a Mech’s Climate Control system seals the pilot and filters all harmful vapors and gases, and allowing him to breath, even underwater or in a vaccum.
Restoration Oils: This metal container is 3 inches in diameter and 1 inch deep, and contains five applications. Placed upon rusted area the ointment removes all rust and repairs the area. When applied to damaged areas it repairs 1d8+5 points of damage. You also gain a +5 competence bonus to Craft Mechanic when using it.
Evasion Aedis: This Aedis improvement allows the Mech to avoid most or all the damage from attacks that have an area of effect. This allows the Mech Pilot the ability to avoid damage as if he had evasion.
M.G.D.S. (Mechanized Golem Detection System): This Aedis additions to the regular Mech basic navigations allow the Mech Pilot to identify nearby hostile creatures. These creatures can be invisible, ethereal, hidden, disguised or in plain sight. Detection range is 60ft. If the Mech Pilot concentrates for a full round, the M.G.D.S. pinpoints the location of the nearest enemy and indicates how many enemies are within range. The M.G.D.S. can be used to pinpoint three times each day, each use lasting up to 10 minutes. Activation of the M.G.D.S. is a standard action.
Improved Structure: This structural modification makes the M.G. more resilient to damage taken by increasing its hit die by 1.
GM W.R. Monger
As you walk into the great dinning hall there is a tall man, muscular, somewhat old... it's your Sergeant Davros and Headmaster of the military academy you study to be Mech Pilot's. Once all Cadet's are assembled in the hall.
Clearing his throat for a moment he begins:
They shall be my finest warriors, these men who give themselves to me. Like clay, I shall mold them, and in the furnace of war forge them. They will be of iron will and steely muscle. In great armor shall I clad them and with the mightiest guns will they be armed. They will be untouched by mortal hands, no fear will blight them. They will have tactics, strategies, and machines such that no foe can best them in battle. They are my bulwark against the enemy. They are the Defenders of Ozmoria.
Sergeant Davros stands before you, proud as he sees you all like he would see his children Cadets this is your last exercise before you graduate... as his voice trails off and sees all assembled cadets.
Before you do so, you still have time to change careers and be a Mech engineer as well as an Aedis developer looking at all cadets to see those that doubt There is no shame to do so, not everyone is capable of Mech piloting and I only expect 10% of this class to make it through the last test successfully another dramatical pause to give more effect to his words Those who do not pass may become part of the military staff that attends Mech Pilots in the military or other positions, you assigned test companions are random so say good bye to your friends if you have any since you will require to work with complete strangers to get this test done. That is all, enjoy your breakfast as the Sergeant takes his leave and some other staffer give meaningless speeches of encouragement or other instructions that you listen to every Monday as your week begins.
As you leave the hall there is commotion as people begin searching the list of their new companions.
Like the title says, I was wondering what edition is the best 4th or 3rd and what is the difference before I get into it, since I only have 4th edition book but I'm reading it and it seems cool but some people say 3rd edition was more powerful or had more fluff in it, and 4th is simplified and very little fluff/lore wise.
GM W.R. Monger

Feats specific to this setting
Advanced Firearms Proficiency
Prerequisite: Personal Firearms Proficiency.
Benefit: The character can fire any personal firearm on autofire without penalty (provided, of course, that it has an auto¬fire setting).
Normal: Characters without this feat take a –4 penalty on attack rolls made with personal firearms set on auto¬fire.
Advanced Mecha Operation
Normal: Autofire uses ten bullets, targets a 10-foot-by-10-foot area, and can’t be aimed at a specific target. Without this feat, if a character attempts an autofire attack at a specific target, it simply counts as a normal attack and all the extra bullets are wasted.
Special: If the firearm has a three-round burst setting, firing a burst expends three bullets instead of five and can be used if the weapon has only three bullets in it.
Exotic Firearms Proficiency
Normal: A character who uses a weapon without being proficient with it takes a –4 penalty on attack rolls.
Special: A character can gain this feat as many as four times. Each time a character takes the feat, he or she selects a different weapon group.

Mecha Weapon Proficiency
Normal: Characters without this feat take a –4 penalty on attack rolls made while in a mech cockpit. Furthermore, they cannot apply firearm feats to a mech’s ranged weapons.
Personal Firearms Proficiency
Normal: Reloading a firearm with an already filled box magazine or speed loader is a move action. Reloading a revolver without a speed loader, or reloading any firearm with an internal magazine, is a full-round action.
Special: The surface doesn’t have to be perfectly smooth and level; a brick wall or an asphalt road can be used. The target can’t have total cover for A character to attempt a skip shot.
Normal: A firearm on autofire normally affects a 10-foot-by-10-foot area.
Now I will handle any further questions and detail pertaining character creation.
Hi! this is a Fantasy/Mech campaign for pathfinder.
Rules for character creation:
Races Allowed: Human, Half-(orc or elf), Aasimar or Tiefling.
Background: Don't need a bible just answer the following questions with it with a decent paragraph: Why are you a cadet for the military? What is your objective? What is your motivation?
You are not forced to be Mech pilots by any means there will still be wizards and dungeon crawling, urban warfare, battlefields and some other more morale questionable endeavors.
You must vote for what nation will you fight
Disclosure of what every nation is does, type of government etc... will be discussed AFTER it has been chosen and character creation is finished.
There will be political intrigue, social encounters as well for those that wish to have a more political type of character.
Please choose your poison... er... Country.
There is weaponry fairly advanced in certain areas like pistols, revolver, machinguns, rifles, etc... They are expensive is the only minor detail.
Character can craft their own later on in game for cheaper as usual.
Well I'm starting to develop some Mech/Fantasy setting and wanted to see of any interest for people, it should be your regular pathfinder classes and high magic fantasy but the times are a bit more modern (sort of eberron) in that there will be trains, air ships and mechs. Also firearms o different kind.
This is going to be mainly based around mech combat to test out how things go and also available for those more conventional characters if there is enough interest or even ideas.
Like the title says this is a Homebrew campaign and we are about to start the first encounter, I need a min. of 1 player and a maximum of 3 players.
The Hombrew setting is Final Fantasy Tactics (Not advance).
*Start at Level 2
Will post traits and such things when I am home.
Time Mage is an archetype for wizard.
Some classes just got name changes only and there are achetypes that substitute for a stand alone class instead.
Valid material for feats, magic items, etc... are: UC, UM, APG and core. No third party material (except my own lol).
There is also brave and faith to calculate or take standard number (highly advised).
I'll take character concepts and background.
You are in the kingdom of Romanda (basically think of linnorm kingdoms + shoanti barbarians (2 cultures that live in the same country).
Will post important knowledge of the kingdom when at home and got access to the info.
GM W.R. Monger
-Thw Winter Festival-
First snow of winter is starting to fall, making the landscape before you look more interesting and dangerous. There is a small lake in the middle of the forest, and there should be a small town beyond the threes were you can see a lot of smoke, lights and some sounds you cannot make out yet, but it might be the winter festival is starting.
Searching for a group of individuals to playtest my homewbrew FFT Campaign setting and generally measuring the interest and giving out a few things for the players.
25 point buy. (no stats beyond 18 even after racial bonus, I want more balanced characters. Nothing below -8 either for extra points and an only do it to one stat).
Human is the ONLY race to play so sorry but that is how it is.
There are new things to fill in besides the regular alignment restriction there is also Faith+brave and zodiac sign that will be discussed at the end of character creation. (which may result in very funny characters but this is a playtest).
I will be taking between 4 - 6 players remember before making character there are other important things to consider as to were are you all from or I can decide this since I will give 3 options of a campaign for people to choose.
War of the Beast
Any questions I would be more than happy to answer, most monster of the bestiaries are changed and there are some brand new ones to deal with (Chocobos, malboro, etc...).
Best Regards to you all!
Hi! I've been trying to work out a conversion for the final fantasy tactics game into pathfinder, I don't think it should be that hard to achieve since most base classes emulate most of the jobs in final fantasy tactics.
I'm also expanding the history of Ivalice a bit to cover other games like vagrant story/FFXII in the timeline somehow (I got this almost worked out thankfully).
I need help from the people in the forum to create or at least give me their 2 cents on what I have worked on so far and improve it. All critics and, tips and advice is welcome
Hi well as the Topic says this is Final Fantasy Tactics d20 attempt with pathfinder rules.
Now there would only be 1 playable race Human, since all the other ones have become extinct and only vestiges of their former glory remain (treasures, weapons, etc...)
So i was working on character creation and came up with the following.
Humans of Ikkoku
Average Height: 4´12˝–6´6˝
Ordalia: Ordalians are slender, tawny-skinned folk with brown hair ranging from almost blond to almost black. Most Ordalians are tall and have green or brown eyes, but all builds, hair and eyes colors may be seen. Those born to the north and west are more likely to have blue eyes and have fairer complexions and darker hair.
Romanda: Romandans are of strong built, tall, fair-skinned folk with eyes of blue or steely gray. Those who dwell among the south are largely fair-haired, with blond hair predominating over red and light brown. Those who dwell on the east part are more prone to raven-black hair.
Ivalice: Ivalicians are of medium built and height, although smaller and broader in built then most Ordalians. Their skin tends to have a dusky hue, although on average they are increasingly fairer in complexion the farter the east one travels. Ivaliacians hair and eye color varies widely, with brown hair and hazel eyes being most common.
Faith & Brave
The overall measure of the character's faith in both themselves and the creator. Faith comes into play often when magic is involved. A character with a lower faith will take less damage from magic but faces a lower chance of success if revived or healed by magic. Vice versa, a character with a high faith faces the prospect of being hurt more by magic but has a much better chance for revival and being cured more effectively. For every 5 points below 60, all magic users face a –1 penalty to their rolls when determining how much damage is delivered or healed. For every 5 points over 60, any magic user faces a +1 bonus when determining how much damage is healed or delivered. To determine your Faith points, roll 3d10 and add them to 40.
The overall measure of the character's brave in themselves and their skills at arms. Brave comes into play often when battle is involved. A character with a lower brave will do less damage from attacks; less chances to strike accurately and faces a lower chance of success in skill checks. Vice versa, a character with a high brave faces the prospect of doing more damage, a much better chance for striking down his enemies and being more effective at skill checks. For every 5 points below 60, all melee or ranged attacks suffer a –1 penalty to their rolls when determining weapon damage, attack and skill checks. For every 5 points over 60, any melee or ranged attack the user gains a +1 bonus when determining weapon damage, attack and skill checks. To determine your Brave points, roll 3d10 and add them to 40.
Action Points (AP)
A hero in Final Fantasy Tactics campaign is defined by far more than race and class. Skills and Feats add to a character’s abilities, while action points extend his or her capabilities to a level never before seen.
Action points provide a player with means to alter d20 rolls in dramatic situations, reflecting the luck that can change crushing failure into heroic success. Your character has a limited number of action points, and you must use them wisely, since you don’t replenish this supply until your character attains a new level.
You can spend an action point to improve the result of an attack roll, a skill check, an ability check, a level check, or saving throw. Certain feats and prestige class features allow you to spend action points in different ways, but this is their most basic use.
When you spend an action point, you add the result of a 1d6 to your d20 roll to help you meet or exceed the target number for the roll. You can declare that you are spending an action point after you have already rolled the d20, but you must do so before the Dungeon Master reveals the result of your roll (whether the attack roll or check or saving throw succeeded or failed). You can’t use an action point on a skill check or ability check when you are taking 10 or taking 20.
You can only use an action point once in a round. If your character level is 8th or higher you can roll two per round when you spend an action point. If you do so, apply the highest result and disregard the other rolls. As a 15th level character, for example, you can roll a 3d6 and take the best of the three.
Character start with 5 AP at level 1 and increases by 1 point every level thereafter.

Capricorns take things very seriously, and often aspire to exert as much control over their lives as possible. If this means exerting control over the lives of others as well, that suits them just fine too. They are very rational and logical, and will spend a lot of time weighting their potential options before finally committing to any particular course of action. Taking things seriously lends them a very pessimistic outlook on most situations. Any humor they do display tends to have a rather dark, or at best, wry, slant to it. To the eyes of a Capricorn, everything is suspect until proven otherwise.

Intuitive and imaginative, they often get caught up in great causes, wondering at all the possible outcomes that they can now play a part in. Possessing many admirable social traits tends to attract people to them, but without sufficient time alone, the constant presence of others tends to wear on an Aquarian, leading them to be rude, or display sudden flashes of anger for any number of small offenses.

They are creative and understanding, and always open to new ideas and concepts. Strict environments and Pisceans do not get along, and is the most likely place to witness any anger out of such characters. They are impractical, thinking little about costs of achieving their idealistic and occasionally unrealistic objectives.
Gain Brave when a Piscean plays an instrumental role in a plan devised by another, and the plan is successful; he or she gains +1 Brave.
Gain Faith if he or she endures danger or extended hardship without a single word of complaint; he or she gains +1 Faith.

GM W.R. Monger
Well gentlemen let's start this show if you may.
I need to you guys to pick an option.
Make your house from scratch or help you guys with the basic parts of it (region of start & history only)
I'll let you guys pick one of the list instead of rolling for it since only 1 would get to roll in that case.
For the sample house if you choose my help
In reward, Aedan was granted a noble house, and instructed to build his keep upon the Bay of Seal as near as possible to where he felled the beast. He gathered his men that survived and offer them a choice to serve him.
The banners of House Stark would be roused to battle, to support Robert Baratheon in the “War of the Usurper”. Fighting alongside his brethren once more, Aedan proved his true trade was not forgotten. As the smaller house had not the notoriety of the larger, his people received little glory for their services. Duty-bound and loyal until the end, the house suppressed their dismay and returned to their home.
Region: The North
You can also use this as an example of how to narrate your history once you roll for the House History >)
Yes for those that remember this little familiars I was asked by a player if he could have one so I just searched for them and found them and made a conversion just posting it here for review and incase someone might need them.
Gen Familiars traits:
Elemental Endurance (Ex): Gen can survive on the Elemental Planes like a native.
Elemental Travel (Sp): A Gen can plane shift at-will to any of the Elemental Planes or from any elemental plane to the Material Plane. This ability transports the Gen only. It is otherwise similar to the plane shift spell (caster level 13th).
Fetch Spells (Ex): A Gen can find and deliver spells to his master from the elemental planes. To retrieve an arcane spell that his master can normally cast (one within Spells Known), the Gen must search for a number of rounds equal to 1d4 + the spell level.
Once Gen is sent out to fetch a spell, it cannot be recalled; it is gone for the duration of the search. To determine its success, the master must succeed at a DC 20 Diplomacy check, since the Gen is acting as a proxy to the elemental powers on behalf of his master. The following modifications apply to this check:
Spells retrieved by the Gen remain available for 1 hour per class level. If a spell is not used within that time, the power to cast the spell dissipates harmlessly.
A Gen advances in level like a normal familiar, gaining all the normal benefits as described in the Familiars section, except that its Intelligence does not increase and can speak the languages noted in the Gen’s description. It retains the outsider type.
This is at elast for me a true conversion just help me if I have a mistake to crrect them ^^.
