The toughest thing about a game that big is going to be keeping the pacing up.

Andoran

It's really not as tough as folks make it out to be.

Andoran

I think your stats are wrong. It's 15 point buy.

Andoran

Ah, I'll create a spoiler block with all of his alternate racial options. He's taken a bunch.

Intimidate: +1 Rank +3 Class +1 Charisma +1 Bred for War +2 Tribal Scars

I'll put the alias together now.

Andoran

My mistake. I thought the optional traits were also campaign traits. The extra feat is from being a half-orc. They have the ability to give up the bonus to intimidate for endurance as a bonus feat.

Segovax has racial proficiency with a scorpion whip, does that count for purposes of peregrinus? Also, who should be checking into that discussion thread?

Andoran

In case you missed it, I posted my submission on the last page. =)

Background

Segovax, simply Seg to some, is a half-orc savage born among a brutal tribe of Darklands orcs known to lair near the surface where they would strike out whenever there was a need to raid and pillage (which was often). He was born to a human mother (one of the tribe’s many slaves turned concubines) and even though he was sired by the tribe’s chieftain, he found no favor among his kind due to the glaring reminder of his lesser half – his kind, very human, eyes. As a result he grew up knowing only cruelty and quickly learned that strength was the only virtue that truly mattered.

One day he and a band were tasked with visiting Zirnakaynin for the purposes of trading some slaves that were old and worn beyond being useful and were waylaid, ironically, by dark elf slavers themselves. The orcs were no strangers to drow tactics and weaponry but the dark elves were well-prepared for their prey, armed with enchanted bolts and spells to smother the greenskins’s savage fury and, despite their great strength, the orcs were defeated. Those that were too injured to move were slain along with the most of the chattel the orcs had brought with them. Segovax and a few others were dragged away in chains.

Appearance

Segovax is a towering figure and takes after his father, possessing a massive muscular frame, honed to iron from a lifetime of physical struggle where raw muscle and endurance were the only thing between life and meaningless death. His wild dark hair is cropped short, a common choice among his savage kin, and his green-grayish skin is riddled with scars, some of which are from injuries while others were ritualistically self-inflicted. A few dark tattoos decorate his flesh alongside the scars, the most prominent being the horns of Baphomet scribed across his left pectoral. He wears little save hide leggings and a satchel to store his few belongings. He’s armed with a short curved blade and a long barbed bullhide whip.

In the arena he wears even less, putting his impressive physique and litany of scars on full display, often clad in only a loincloth held in place by his balteus.

Persona

Although he resents his capture at the hands of the dark elves, Segovax will quickly learn to appreciate the situation and the many advantages it provides. Among his own kind he was a second-class citizen at best but among the drow’s gladiators he could be a champion, provided for, adored, and lusted after. A man would kill another man for such a position. An orc would kill all them all.

Crunch

This will have to wait until I get home. Segovax will be a hateful rager barbarian with his stats focused on strength, constitution, and charisma (in that order). For traits he’ll be bred for war, fate’s favored, and a sex symbol. His first level feat is either going to be tribal scars.

There's more than one Spartacus reference in there. =P

Andoran

I’m writing up a half-orc barbarian who is planning to dip into monk [martial artist] or brawler (depending on how long it takes us to level and if the book is out).

Fighter [Gladiator] was winning me over but I don’t like the idea of being married to a specific weapon group.

Potts, did you have some specific drow houses in mind as major players for the plot? Should we reference the wiki or just go wild?

I happen to be DMing book four of Second Darkness right now (In play by post!) so Zirnakaynin is pretty fresh in my thoughts. =P

Andoran

I've got a number of character concepts lined up for this. I'll wait to see what others are pitching and Pott's stance on classes before I commit to something.

Andoran

Hrm. It appears you've okayed Nagaji. Would a Nagaji reflavored as a Trog be workable?

Andoran

#5 definitely interested me the most. I'm glad it won!

Trogs are one of the more common slaves races in the Darklands. Any love for them?

Would skinwalker work for Bestiarius?

Andoran

Hama, I'd suggest you bring your campaign to PBP. I've had better experiences playing and DMing here than I've ever had in a face to face game.

Andoran

Alright, thanks for the heads up.

So I’m assuming I’ll be coming in at 4th level. Zuberi is a monk [martial artist] 1, cleric 3. His 5th level will be monk again but he’ll be full cleric from then on.

Stats

19 str (includes racial and 4th level bump)
13 dex
16 con
10 int
14 wis
12 cha

His cleric domains are going to be crocodile and strength (ferocity) and he’ll have the following feats starting out, Cooperative Maneuvers, Cooperative Defense, and Defensive Combat Training.

I’ll get a bit of background stuff written up next assuming this is all kosher.

Andoran

I’m at work currently so the complete crunch will have to wait until this evening but I can get some basics and background stuff together in a few minutes.

I have to say, I’m impressed by the pacing you guys have kept up. It reminds me of my Skull and Shackles PBP. We finished the whole thing in less than a year. =)

I was considering taking Craft Wondrous. Is that okay with you DG? Does this AP feature downtime or timeskips that would make crafting useful?

Andoran

Wow, that was unexpected. Greetings guys.

Thanks for having me Doublegold. Can I call you DG?

Andoran

Welcome to PBPs bwatford. =P

It looks like this is your first foray on the paizo forums. Do you mind telling us a bit about yourself?

Andoran

Heh. Maybe my thread will stir up more latent DMs. =P

Andoran

Hey guys. I was told to roll some stats here.

4d6 ⇒ (5, 5, 6, 5) = 21
4d6 ⇒ (6, 5, 4, 1) = 16
4d6 ⇒ (4, 3, 6, 3) = 16
4d6 ⇒ (5, 6, 6, 2) = 19
4d6 ⇒ (5, 3, 6, 2) = 16
4d6 ⇒ (4, 6, 6, 5) = 21
4d6 ⇒ (3, 6, 4, 3) = 16

16, 15, 13, 17, 14, 17

Nice.

Should I grab a mythic tier or no?

Andoran

Thanks for the info Wicked. I'm glad to hear your game's going so well.

Andoran

I'm in a Mummy's Mask pbp that had no recruitment thread, I wonder if more and more people are doing APs with a known group rather than recruiting.

Unless people are calling their campaigns by secret code words, I don't think there's anymore private Mummy's Masks games running than any other AP.

Andoran

I suppose that's possible. I didn't realize folks were that excited about Mythic.

Andoran

Usually around this time for a new AP, there’s a half-dozen recruitment threads running. I’ve only noticed a handful for Mummy’s Mask. What gives? Is the Egyptian setting/themes not terribly popular in PBP land? Does the AP have some glaring problems?

Andoran ****

1 person marked this as a favorite.

I never got tired of saying "I shoot a cat at it".

Andoran ****

Sorry about that. Paizocon put me into maximum slacker mode. I sent that email this morning.

Andoran ****

I'm sure I saw Kyle Baird at the dessert table.

Well it might have been a slice of carrot cake.

Andoran ****

I totally lucked out. I got seated at a table with Mike Brock, Painlord, Compton, and BigKyle with Verdigris DMing. Easily the highlight of my con experience.

Edit:

Compton and Brock dropped to make room. =(

Andoran

Hrm. I might be interested.

Andoran ****

Are folks going to be at the bar tomorrow?

I've been wanting to meet John.

Andoran ****

1 person marked this as a favorite.

One of my players won a boon but I forgot to note it on my reporting sheet. Who should I contact?

Andoran

Understood. Thanks for the consideration. I'll let Karl know he doesn't have a surprise sibling to look out for. =P

Andoran

Alright. I sent Karl and PM to get the ball rolling but I want to find out about the kosherness of the stuff I’m interested before I get too invested in writing up a character.

Andoran

Oh, I'm a player in that one.

I need to get the go-ahead from the DM.

Andoran

Half rounded up. So 5 per d8.

Andoran

We're doing PFS HP.

Andoran

Well an investigator is already pretty close to a wizard/rogue. I don't know how much rebuilding would really be necessary. =P

But before you do that you should post in Rise.

Andoran

The Game

We’re currently paladin, melee ranger, druid, oracle, and cleric. Our wizard/rogue recently had a kid and looks to have given up PBPing for now.

Andoran

My group might have an opening in the near future. We're near the beginning of book two.

Andoran

Grappling as a mechanic is very very weak. It started out poor and has only gotten worse as Pathfinder has applied 'clarifications'.

You've got it right. Without extensive feat investment, grapple is a net loss of actions.

Andoran

I might have a solution for you.

Andoran

It looks like you guys have been playing for going on 7 months and you're still level one. Is that the kind of pacing to expect?

Andoran

Where can I read more about Bard's Gate. I'm thinking my character is going to be the child of a low-noble family and I'd like to know more about the city.

Also, Grimmy how do you feel about tattooed sorcerer and celestial servant.

Also (again), how do you want to handle the random/variant aasimar abilities?

Andoran

I'm strongly considering a human or aasimar sorceress with a focus on support/buffing - haste, barkskin, fly, prot evil, etc. Does that sound like something that the party could use?

Andoran

Way of the Wicked honestly never interested me much until I spotted your game and started musing on Tanarukk. I'll go ahead and withdraw. Best of luck. It looks like you've got a great group.

Andoran

Can you tell me about the rest of the party?

I'm leaning toward a supportive sorcerer.

Andoran

That's why I suggested cooking something up that's a bit more appropriate with race creation rules. Call it 'Lesser Tanarukk' maybe.

He could be Thok's son!

Andoran

I'll withdraw then. Thanks anyway.

Andoran

Well even if it's not Thok specifically, would another tanaruk be possible?

Andoran

Would you be willing to let someone play a Tarnuk? I see the party just rescued one. It'd be an easy way to intro the character. =P

Obviously the full monster stats wouldn't work but what if I use the race creation rules to cook something up?

Andoran

I recently recalled another one of my favorites.

We’re in a dungeon and the party cleric gets hit with a fear effect. She’s going to flee in a panic but I use my turn to grapple her and hold her down.

DM: Okay. Cleric, roll a wisdom check. If you fail, you take sanity damage.

Cleric: Huh. Why? And since when are we using any sort of sanity rules?

DM: You’re magically panicked and someone is keeping you from running. You’re going to take sanity damage.

Cleric: …

Me: I guess I let her go…

Same stellar DM as the batvalanche.
