I'm sure I can get some sort of rogue-ish trapsman.


Working on an arcane submission but it's date night. Basics: Skald (Urban/Red Tongued). Con man with aspirations to political propaganda power. Any sin would make sense with this a%@&#$+. Golarion's own talk radio maniac.


Ooops, nearly missed this thread while still checking the interest thread. I've got some ideas and will post them later. This should be dope.


"Chance a racer" was supposed to be "character" but I think everyone understood.


I think we get bogged down with full crunch builds to 15th level or whatever. I like to be surprised by my characters.


The sin stuff could also be left to gameplay, based on gm-interpretation of role-play. As in, just have a chance a racer with a pretty developed personality, subject it to the campaign, and see how it develops organically.


I'd love to play a fake-folksy rabble-rouser with a dubious moral code. Could fit with most sins ...


Sounds great! And working together during character creation is a great way to ensure a solid game.


No, not sleuth. Empiricist. Son of a whiskey distiller. Makes his own weird drinks. Way smarter than he seems.


Narrowing it down quickly. Leaning towards a sleuth/other archetype investigator. But I want to play with the preconceptions that brings up. Just a bumpkin who's naturally good at noticing things. Being "recruited" might be the best thing that happened to him.


Ooooooh, yeah. So many ideas ...

Am I dating myself if I say that Christopher Lee is the demon, and you should be playing Peter Cushing? Not that I'm old enough to have seen those movies in theaters, but on many Saturday afternoon tv shows.

Hahahaha, same here, age-wise. But I did mean Lee ...after all, it would take more than Cushing to defeat THE DEMON. A pissed off ancient pagan who doesn't want to be drawn into these games of good and evil.


Got my main idea. Druid/witch (no, not a shaman) ...Christopher Lee who's seen it all and is tired of demons.


This sounds super interesting. Count me in. Now to roll up ...


Sweet. I'd be down for sure. Lemme get a concept together.


M Human (multi-ethnic) Rogue Charlatan 6

I'm all giddy. Is there a possibility we could see his stat block? I was sure we were goners.


Sorry for the delay. Played around with him as a dwarf but it seemed played. Reworking as a human. The meat shield who knows how to prepare fine meat.


Sketched out on bar napkins. Kevvil Heavywood, dwarven aspiring chef with a fugue state anger issue.


Working on a dreadnaught barbarian chef looking for work trait. Good chef, better killer.


Edit: I misread. So if anything you need a trapsperson. I could arange that easily.


M Human (multi-ethnic) Rogue Charlatan 6

Happy turkey party!

Norv: I can't imagine why. Or why Teodor might be becoming even more militant.


This sounds amazing! Let me decide on a character.


The cruch is on a bar napkin, but my wizard is coming together. Depressive elven void elementalist. Too aware for his own good for over a hundred years. Very introverted, has kept to himself mostly. But is fascinated by Thassilonian magic.


Good luck everyone! Been a rough couple of days but this brings some happiness.


Election has taken a lot out of me but I'm still working on a wizard for this.


Been itching to play a wizard. Seems like a good fit.


Yes, please!


Didn't get to transfer stats yesterday but am on it now.


I've got the crunch on paper, will transfer tomorrow. But oooooh that fluff.

Dat fluff tho:
His name? He's not sure. Mr. Clean ...he was called that. He liked things clean. His hands clean. His jobs clean. He ...did bad things. Maybe to bad people? Hard to say. Pretty sure he's never met a saint. But ...these ...horrors-altogether different. This was worse. Mr. Clean likes things clean. And his brain isn't clean now.

Male half orc Cleaner Slayer. Enduring Stoicism trait. From a city far away, don't remember where. Bigger'n this. Easier t'blend. Cleaner. Not important now. Priorities: clean head; wipe out responsible parties.

Tall, broad, dark man. Close cropped black hair. Plenty of scars. Muscles like cords. Big, meaty hands. Somewhere between Mike Colter and Lee Marvin.

Clipped, direct sentences. (Unless in a role.) Quick movements, decisive. Not used to being scared. Doesn't like it.


I tend to think of alignment as a character arc. Starting LE but moving towards good in reaction to evil alien horrors.


I couldn't work amnesia into my tricky old monk, so I've switched ideas. Thinking a hardass crook who doesn't like the idea of strange things violating his bodily autonomy. Necromancers were troubling enough!

Mechanically either a slayer or fighter. Would LE work in this situation? It isn't a must-have.


Very tempted to play a monk ...kung fu vs. Cthulu!


Sooooo down to play this. Now to narrow down my ideas.

The idea of a short, but maybe able to continue, campaign is bearin down hard on me. I've played a lot of games but only dm-ed for irl games. But I'd love to run a Magnificent Seven riff using pathfinder rules. When it comes to classes, I'd say have a good story. I'd admit ninjas or winter witches if they had a good concept that fits in. Gunslingers obviously allowed, archetypes encouraged. Magic could exist if you explain it in genre or a fusion.

This is just an interest check. I'd have to develop it, but I want to see if there's interest first.

Caveat: race and the genre. I mean human constructs of race, and how that has shaped this country and in ways, this genre. This is a roundabout way of saying stereotypes will not get much consideration as pcs. Characters can be in-world racist, as was prevelent, but expect that to have negative karmic responce, unless we agree on an arc for your character. I'm not interested in hateful for hateful's sake.

EDIT: GOOD REFLUFFING ENCOURAGED

I am on an unexpected job hunt, which has put this on hold. Sorry.


Still developing the campaign, I've not abandoned you. I'd rather get too much planned than too little, yknow?


I've sketched out the general area ...big town, plains, canyon area, little settlement, etc. I've also plotted out 3 or 4 adventure arcs, starting with our Mag 7 tribute. Fleshing out the factions around now. When it's selection time, I want to work with the players to tie them in better, so some details are loose until decided.


It's gonna be guns everywhere btw.


Construction has begun on the major town.


There's a lot out there. http://www.d20pfsrd.com/classes/base-classes/gunslinger/archetypes/paizo--- gunslinger-archetypes/maverick-gunslinger-archetype


If it makes a good or fun story, I want to be able to allow it.


I'm still in preproduction, as it were. I originally pictured a cinematic western, but all the fantasy elements can blend so well. Perhaps a dimensional nexus area adjacent to somewhere in Alkenstar, say, and other dimensions as well. Also totally willing to listen to any input or preference.


Folks good in a fight and in need of money, refuge, or redemption.

And let's not roll anything yet. I've gotta do the setup work and some town building and such as.

This is truly an interest check. Feel free to develop and brainstorm here but selection is a ways off, and unspecified as yet.


Stats is a good question. I love rolling but know these characters should be badasses. I'd say rolling but with safeguards or a high point buy.


Oh, and gestalt and mythic I'm not quite ready for. I think we could do this single-class, 7th level or so. Remember, make it work (Tim Gunn in the house) for the setting, whoever you need to.


Loving the samurai/luchador/kung fu direction some of you are thinking in. As for Occult Classes, like anything else, describe to me how it fits in and works, refluffing at will. I will say when I do this (gonna start building it tonight) and when I'm choosing characters, I want the majority to be some sort of take on a semi-traditional western theme. The silent gunman, the gambler, the sharpshooter, what-have-you. I'll be picking some samurai/luchador/kung fu types, but I want them to be the extra spice in a delicious western steak.

What is your thoughts about "availability of guns"?

It's a western. They're everywhere.


Loving what I'm seeing here. More specific feedback later. Hosting Star Wars trivia night at one of my locals.


But, again, I could be convinced to go more fantasy or even Golarion based. This is early development, and input is welcome.


I'm currently thinking more earthly western with technology rules of pathfinder available to male extraordinary folk.

Story behind them has two meanings. A backstory is important regardless. As for starting at something higher than 1st level, I could easily be convinced to do so. These characters tend to not be neophytes. If someone still wanted to start at first, I'd find a counterbalance.
