How do I get his image from Paizo to my computer?

The Exchange

And now for introductions, since a long running game depends on a strong discussion thread where we can can shoot the breeze and discuss the various merits of Tom Brady over Russell Wilson for instance.

Hi Guys, I am a 48- (almost 49) year old house husband with two lovely children, Ellie (4) and Archie (8) and a gorgeous wife, Helen, who works in a Futher Education College as a lecturer on the island of Guernsey in the English Channel.

I've been gaming since 1981, which is much less than many on these boards, and used to be a regional director for TSR back in the day. Although I've played plenty of different games, DnD (in all its editions) is my favourite by a country mile. I used to go to the UK Cons alot where I wrote a bit for Living Greyhawk. Since then my only other writing gigs have been for Raging Swan Press (luckily I used to play with the publisher). Great products for a busy DM.

I do table top DnD monday evenings (RotRL) and Thursdays (Viking based Kingmaker homebrew).

Other hobbies include supporting the Green Bay Packers and Liverpool Football Club.

Cheers

The Exchange

Happy gaming chaps. Desna smiled on Herral this time but I hope you get the same next time round.

My son's dwarf ranger was captured by goblins, Volreg. He isn't so keen after that. Especially when his npc fighter friend drank a cursed potion and turned into a chicken. He currently plays minecraft whenever we let him.

Daughter is a bit young, although her bluff skill is already impressive.

My solution to constant refreshing is to draft out a half orc character for Giantslayer. We have agreed to all be part of the same tribe - Black Sun mercenaries.

Its a silly exercise because our DM plans for us to roll 5d4 Ironman altogether and build a party from there. Therefore I'm building several different concepts to cover for what I may end up with, depending on whether I roll high Con or Cha, for instance.

Also today is the end of the school spring term so I'll have two little blighters and a wife under my feet for the next two weeks. Chaos reigns.

Cheers one and all

Awesome summary, French Wolf.

I've been meaning to update the submissions list but I've been swamped at work.

#of games is a tiebreaker, folks with 9+ games ultimately have an equal chance as those with 0 as long as your submission is strong. But if there are two or three characters all vying for those last couple slots, yeah, it'll go to tiebreaker.

Thanks

The Exchange

I wanted to re arrange the list just to get a better idea of how we are split between the various roles in a party. However as usual there are characters that could fit in more than one category.

-----Arcane------
Michael_Hopkins – Volreg Sundek the Andoren/Ulfen Kineticist (Aether) – Pathfinder, son of Carpenden winemakers (1 game in next month, PFS)
Snake Charmer – Lyrune the elf alchemist – Ex-slave, seeking mother sold to brothel.: (2 games)
Nariel Lauric – aasimar (arcanist) – white mage and gentle healer

-----Divine------
Hogeyhead - Aster Domus the Human Urban Druid – Andoren noble, raised by a wizard, but ended up falling in with a druid cabal: (0 games, new to pbp)
Feth (#1) – Mirode Sharo – elf cleric of Sarenrae, citizen of Oregent, seeking to help ease the suffering of others

-----Multi-skilled------
French Wolf – Herral Hinn the Halfling inquisitor (infiltrator) of Desna – Halfling merchant slash inquisitor of Desna!: (5 games )
CaptainFord – Adrac Rhaddyn the human monk (Ki mystic) – Old adventurer come to Falcon’s Hollow to meet his grand daughter for the first time.: (Already in a Falcon’s Hollow game)
Xunal - Urtnechech – half orc dancing dervish (bard) of Osirion and former bandit
Kubular - Antony Read – tiefling magus and hunter of werewolves
Aleck VARs – fetching rogue – hiding on the Prime Material Plane in Falcons Hollow.

-----Warrior------
Digger – Tarkus Shieldsplitter the dwarf fighter – Blacksmith from Highhelm: (1.5 games)
Orannis – Soroza the Half-orc Urban Ranger – Worshipper of Calistria, seeks to abuse those who exploit sex workers (0 games)
Zahir ibn Mahmoud ibn Jothan – Lieutenant Jansen Naran the Varisian human paladin of Abadar OR bard– Fourth son of an Andoren noble, headed to Falcon’s Hollow to investigate the Lumber Consortium (7 games as player, 1-2 as GM)
Feth - Davi Accerlas – Changeling swashbuckler. Daughter of an Andoren trader, investigating her mother’s call.
Edeldhur – Reknar – cavalier (inspiring commander)
Toxicdragon – Wulfrun Tavernier – human cavalier of the Star, born in Falcon’s Hollow

Apologies to any PC that I have misrepresented, that was not my aim. Reading some of the PCs in some detail makes me fear for Herral's chances, especially with me being in five games.

Cheers

There is a group called Havedice in your vicinty maybe closer to Ringwood if memory serves. They run a great con called Conception every spring which is worth a look Shananaria.

Unfortunately although I do not live that far from you, I am on Guernsey.

Good luck.

The Exchange

I hope Monica gets plenty of work after this because she deserves it. However I hope Chris wins the title.

Vote for Hollowheart Conquest.

cheers

The Exchange

Great scope and innovation here. I like Monica's professional adventure but I would buy this every day.

Even if this isn't chosen, I hope you're given a chance to complete it.

Cheers

The Exchange

GM of Liberty that sounds good, although I doubt that 1/Day is embedded in reality, the second time I'll probably be just as frightened. However as a drawback, it should be flavourful rather than disarming and your take fits the bill much better than mine.

Overnight I have come up with two additional background items. The first is a small tie to Falcon's Hollow and possibly another PC. I intend for Herral to be meeting friends in the village with a view to starting a pie business franchise - very halfling. Probably another halfling "cousin" by marriage to one of his sisters.

Second, he needs a pony. It goes with the merchant image and helps with the low strength/carrying capacity issues you intend to track.

Finally you mentioned before that party balance isn't that important to you. So if we get a party of archers or healers then could we tweak our party slightly to cover things like disable device for instance?

Cheers

P.S. In case it matters, I am UK based, living on an island in the English Channel, but I can post during the day.

The Exchange

I think we have enough to contend with without Leo providing the DM with a new monster - the terrifying udneads sounds awful.

By the way, how are the cockatrices doing?

cheers

Wow, Albion, wow.

Would a follower of Sivanah be able to enter the Veiled Illusionist PrC later in the game? I'm thinking of a heavens oracle if that's OK, maybe a lunar oracle with a real problem with werewolves if not.

I'm in one other PbP at the moment. I've played none of these modules and don't have a lot of familiarity with Andoren yet (I'll read up before posting a character). Posting at least 1/day shouldn't be a problem, though if you use the likes of Roll20 or Skype I would likely have some difficulty getting on at times convenient to Americans.

avr, I looked at that PrC last night, its a really cool idea you have going there.

cheers

The Exchange

Dotting for now. Looks like you put a good deal of effort into this, so I'll see if I can come up with a decent character.

I like the looks of the sneaky branch of the Eagle Knights called the Twilight Talon (on wiki). Do you have any ideas on how they would recruit and from what areas? Pathfinder Society? Military scouts?

I have played in many games on the boards and Hollows Last Hope was one of the first. Currently I am playing in about five games having lost a six year old game of Crimson Throne last weekend. Posting is no issue but I may need some help embedding my PC into Andoran since I do have the Spirit of Liberty book.

The only other adventure I have played (to completion) is the Last Tower of the Baron.

Cheers

The Exchange

I sent TT a private message, but I'll say it again here. This is such a shame for all of us. Its a great game but I quite understand how running this needs to something you want to do.

Cheers

The Exchange

No great character comes to me perhaps a sign of how busy I am, too busy for the effort this requires. I withdraw.

cheers

Gloomsworn Path and Darkblight Fallow for me. I have voted for Monica consistently throughtout but I felt these guys brought a touch more mojo to their encounters.

Yeah my thoughts exactly, we would have sorted this round a table in a minute.

The Dawn Plan

1 - Jerrid provides distraction at gates - probably an obscuring mist or smokestick etc then hides as best he can.

2 - Sam then Vhillish climb up stealthily into watchtower.

3 - Damien, Kev, Janna, Leo climb in over curtain wall.

Not sure what is happening now since Vhillish and DMG are moving things along.

Cheers

The Exchange

OOC I reckon sam and then Vhillish should secure the watchtower roof. Preferably with Sam taking the rope because its less noisy than the grapple. They have the best climb.

If there are crennelations on the curtain walls then maybe the rest wait for Jerrid's diversion and either go over or force the door since Damien is pretty strong.

But before that I'd recommend watching the whole place for a day and night to see who or what we may face. If we can grab someone off a patrol without them guessing then so much the better. Is that what you meant Janna or did you mean a short watch until midnight or if Jerrid had his way dawn?

Jerrid will do whatever you guys want though, he owes you all that for saving his life.

18 posts huh.

We do treasure far better than most of my other games, it is more of a testament because of the value and number of items. I've never played a greedy character, personally treasure does not float my boat.

And I am old school enough to still feel uneasy about the pathfinder approach to magic marts and how important they are to encounter design.

cheers

The Exchange

gotcha

Sorry, late night watching the Superbowl last night followed by out doing Rise of the Runelords this evening until 11.30pm so now am off to bed.

Will try to post something during the day tomorrow.

Jerrid is pretty beaten up if you want to npc him delaying that would a ok.

Sorry, but I'm not taking custom race submissions for this. It needs to be an official race. I'm okay with the character's premise, but it will need to be an experimented upon result using one of the component races as the baseline.

Right, no need to apologise GMB, I misunderstood. I shall make lemonade. Probably looking at a race that improves Int and does not reduce Cha so dwarf is definitely out.

The Exchange

Great example, Crustypeanut, ta.

The Exchange

Morning Folks,

DMB I have gone through the ARG, taken the humanoid base (with dwarf and orc subtype) and built a 10 race point character using orcish and dwarfish traits and one due to what he has become. I am building him under the Scarless Kruge alias until I get a chance to edit that placeholder.

Rorek, I've spent a while thinking about a 3 stat for my guy and my first stop was the initial description of the stat in the core rulebook.

Charisma (Cha)
Charisma measures a character's personality, personal magnetism, ability to lead, and appearance. It is the most important ability for paladins, sorcerers, and bards. It is also important for clerics, since it affects their ability to channel energy. For undead creatures, Charisma is a measure of their unnatural “lifeforce.” Every creature has a Charisma score. A character with a Charisma score of 0 is not able to exert himself in any way and is unconscious.

If it was Cha 9 or 8 then I would normally come up with one negative character trait based off one of the highlighted natures. For a 3 I'm looking for something that encompasses all of them but still leaves me with someone I want to play. And he has to be able to interact with the party.

Cheers

** spoiler omitted **

I'm not opposed to the premise, but you would need to pen down a race choice and follow creation rules accordingly. I might remind that a full dwarf would bring that Charisma down to a 1.

Excellent, should be able to avoid reducing Cha with that.

Right Brimleydower I have the germ of an idea for my Cha 3 Applicant. It will take a while to pull all the threads together so I'll spoiler you an outline and let me know if it worth a punt for your game, thanks.

the Ugly Wizard:
Mong was created from the bodies of six deceased wizards, but the process did not quite succeed (cf flesh golem bestiary 1) Instead of a flesh golem to command, the Blekzen mage ended up with a runt, stitched pieces of orc, man, and dwarf but one that could think and act freely. Eventually Mong earnt his freedom and has travelled on his own, unsure of the reasons for the poor reception his veined and stitched body has received.
Mong is a living being, a humanoid with elements of two dwarves, three men and an albino orc head. I'd like to trawl through the racial traits (ARG) of dwarf and orc to cherry pick ones suitable for his background and the mountainous AP, without being silly. If this if too far out then I could rein it in by making Mong a full dwarf or half orc.
Reading through the definition of Charisma I expect that this guy will fail on beauty, force of personality and social graces. However as a mage he could have a future.

The Exchange

Good luck

The Exchange

But don't you tend to make similar characters with point buy? Mine generally promote Dex over Con for instance. Rolling sets up situations like mine...never built a Cha 3 character before. That is fun and quite a challenge.

The Exchange

Not a problem at all, I sense a wizard with the social skills of his spellbook.

The Exchange

...picks up gauntlet from the floor and flings it back. Roll them and they will be assigned as follows,

Str 3d6
Dex 4d6
Con 3d6
Int 3d6
Wis 3d6

So do your worst, Sah!

Its more about the freedom of the DM to make his own decisions from what I have seen. Problem is that Pathfinder players are in a rules strait jacket compared to first and second edition DnD. I find it all quite liberating.

Leo can summon as a standard action? Thought it was one round jobbie.

Wife working late tonight so I should be able to knock off the next instalment of Jerrid's Journal. Depends on how gentle the kids are with me after school.

I'm in a quandary about the journal. Help please.

Do you want me to simply follow the thread while he was away and write a "perfect" storyline or....

the more rp version where he sits down in Fairhill and people tell as much as they remember of events while he and Astor were away?

Thoughts would be appreciated before I start.

Wilmannator, Color me impressed by how much time and effort you have put into this.

Not sure how much it matters here but I see recruitment for homebrew games, Pathfinder, 5e, Savage Worlds and within that a number of different modules and APs. Does this matter where your recruitment guide is concerned and how do you maximise your pool of good applicants?

Also what do you guys feel about assigning reserves or not?

I'm not looking for an edition war here just some good clean advice from different perspectives.
