I'm thinking a drow warder/psion, possibly a member of the black thorn knights...but the temptation to play a mind flayer is really strong, looking forward to seeing the stats on those.


And no insults were meant or given, that is a serious question I posited to Gorbacz, one I am keen to see the answer to.


One thing is for sure, whether you are an old school man-bearded grognard or a transgender pansexual 20-something, Paizo wants your business and money.

Or are you looking for them to exclude a section of their playerbase Gorbz?

As for on topic, this was the AP that caused one of my friends to finally dip his toe into AP buying, though he hasnt started it yet as we are knee-deep in a campaign another DM is running.

Since then, this has come out, which you might find useful. There's also a huge monster compendium, and darklord stats.

Good man, you beat me to it. In case you need the rest of the material, here's the link to the forum post where you can get all 3 books, including the book of darklords and the monster book.


Lol, an interesting concept no doubt.

Are you using the new 7th Edition (not that it really matters with CoC)?


If I were a betting man, I'd put it on a GenCon 2017 release of the Curse of the Crimson Throne anniversary edition hardback. That will be the 15 year anniversary of Paizo as a company and the 10 year anniversary of the Adventure Paths, and it will have been 5 full years since Runelords AE was released.


Are 3rd party classes allowed? I'd love to be a NG Hylian Warder, classic sword and shield style.

I have little patience with people gushing about how great VII was and how much worse they think the later and better games are.

The story is head scratchingly obtuse because it was unfinished. The characters are lazy stereotypes with no real depth or indviduality, well other than Cait Sith. The battle system is boring and basically the same as VI.

Plus, chocobo breeding.

You spoony bard.

Personally its VI > IV > VII >>> all the rest.

I love 7, and this will be a day one purchase for me, but if they ever do a full HD remaster of 6 I would squee like a nine year old girl who just got a pony for her birthday.

It's still the best story of any FF game ever.


I read about half of the first page before I noticed this thread is 4 years old. It was almost comical too because one of the first few comments is some guy saying he was checking E3 for news, which just started today, and then some other guy was pining over a Baldurs Gate style game, to which I was going to reply "dude, have you been under a rock, check out Pillars of Eternity!"...and then I noticed the date, lol.

Anyway, so Paizo, what is going on with that Obsidian deal*, hmm?

I'm going to laugh when Vic replies with the exact same thing he said 4 years ago.

*Other than the virtual card game.

Hopefully one of these can beat Saint Kargath in cool factor, or come close to Lord Soth. Ungarato has some cool to him based on history bits posted so far. Looking forward to this article.

The original Death Knight, causer (or at least non-preventer) of the Cataclysm that befell his world, owner of his own castle of horror on Krynn, and a Dark Lord with his own Domain of Dread in Ravenloft...thats gonna be tough to beat. ;)

Even Arthas is number 2 on the all time Death Knight list behind Soth, and I loved Warcraft 3 something fierce.

I alway liked Heroes of Might and Magic IV.

Of course, it's the only one I played. But watching a stack of clerics pimp slap dragons to death was funny.

Heroes of Might and Magic 3 is Master Race. Love and embrace it as the best or GTFO.

:P

Just wanted to give some praise for doing your part to keep Ravenloft alive. May the mists be in your favor good sir.


Awww, I thought this thread was going to be about a character for a Dragonlance campaign. I got all excited to talk about pious knights, color coded wizards, and everyones all time favorite PC race, kender.

Character concept seems solid, everyone loves a well played bard.

Looking at the different options for the wizards and cavaliers and other classes, in a DL world are the PRCs even necessary?

I really like the Knight prestige classes from Knightly Order of Ansalon, but I wouldnt necessarily take them on every single Knight character I played. I would probably take Sword Knight (clerist) on a clerical focused Knight, and theres a good chance I would take the Rose Knight on top of the Cavalier class, but I most likely wouldnt with a Paladin.

The way I see it is that the PrC isnt needed to achieve the heights in the organizations, but its another option for those who are members of said groups to utilize if they so desire.

Basically a Fighter 20 could be Lord of the Crown as easily as a Fighter 10/Crown Knight 10, as long as he has roleplayed it properly.


If 3rd party material is allowed I was going to suggest a Warder, the only Pathfinder class I've encountered that makes playing a "tank" actually feasible and viable.


Cap: Shield Champion Brawler, maybe a couple levels in Paladin.

Iron Man: Aegis

Hulk: Hulk has two separate character sheets, one as Bruce Banner, an Alchemist, and one as the Hulk, a Wild Rager Barbarian. He only has access to his current set of abilities in a given form, the others are locked out to him.


Paizo only, or is 3rd party acceptable?


Shalafi, I'm thinking a Fighter/Cleric, mostly Cleric, who takes the Knight of the Sword (Clerist) prestige class from Knightly Orders of Ansalon.


IIRC I was like the 3rd one to step away, and by the time I did it was pretty much a moot point anyway as the campaign was already in its death throes. But good luck and whatnot, hopefully this one makes it farther.


Drake Steelwind, Paladin of Kiri-Jolith and Squire of the Crown, reporting for duty (again). :)

For the Stalker I'd rather them have a good base Reflex and either get rid of the Wis to Ref ability, or swap it out for something else.

For the Warlord it's probably less needed overall, but I liked it for uniformity and symmetry between the classes.

If you decided to implement it, it would work out like this:

Warder: Fort and Will, Int to Ref
Warlord: Fort and Ref, Cha to Will
Stalker: Ref and Will, Wis to Fort (this is what you could swap out its Wis to Ref for).

Yay symmetry.

Errant, there was discussion a while back about saving throws in the first book being off. Can you please give me some official confirmation...are the Stalker and Warlord supposed to have good reflex saves, yes or no? And if yes, will that be released as official errata?


Spoiler:
Morgan definitely leveled up a few times in Monk.


Most of the Infinity Engine games were pretty darn faithful incarnations of the 2E rules, aside from Planescape (which was awesome for separate reasons).


Can anyone kindly do one of those lists compiling all the active character submissions?


DM, could I play an Outlander who's just trying to get the hell home?

And I don't know what link was originally posted but are you using Ryan Naylors Pathfinder conversion from Fraternty of Shadows?

My friend told me the show was good. Now I watch an episode every few months, just so I have more to tell him about how dumb the show is.

Way to roleplay your character, you've got the quintessential annoying Kender nailed!


I was going to suggest a Slayer as well. I have a buddy who loved multiclassed Fighter/Thieves back in the 2E days and he thinks the Slayer class is the best thing since sliced bread.


Whenever we do gestalt we play it similar AD&D multiclassing, in that you take two classes at level 1 and those are locked in for the rest of that characters career, no multiclassing, no PrCs. This isn't as big of a deal in Pathfinder as it was in 3.5 but it still makes things simpler and neater.

Im running a normal campaign in Rise of the Runelords right now, but I'll be doing a gestalt campaign when I get around to running Rappan Athuk. One of my buddies is already itching to play a Soulknife/Stalker.


I actually don't mind Fox keeping ahold of the X-License, that universe is large enough that it can support multiple movies and characters interwoven into a seamless whole.

I want the F4 IP back at Marvel not so much for the F4 themselves, but for Doom, Galactus, Silver Surfer, and all the rest that goes along with it. Doom and Galactus will make for excellent MCU villains for future Avengers movies.

Then we have 3 studios going full steam:

Warner Bros: All of DC
Fox: X-Men Universe
Marvel: All the rest of Marvel minus the X-Men

That sounds about perfect to me.

Now we just need the grim-dark Fantastic Four reboot to bomb, so Marvel can buy back that property (or at least Doctor Doom and the cosmic elements).

This is the great hope. And it is entirely possible.

Sadly, what Marvel will never get back is X-Men, Fox will keep that to themselves until kingdom come.


I'm thinking instead of a Stalker (lots of rogue types so far) maybe doing an Aasimar Warlord who's goal is to be Ringmaster.

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

I disagree.


I'm thinking a CG Human Stormborn Sorcerer. His struck by lightning count is currently only at 4.


Bards Gate or Endhome sound good to me. I'm thinking I would rather enjoy a Stalker who plies his trade in one of those fair cities.


So absolutely zero 3rd party material? I've been dying to play a Warlord in a Kingmaker campaign. Focus would be on Golden Lion and Scarlet Throne disciplines, and he would have ties to the Aldori and nobles of Brevoy.


Reign of Winter might be one to check out. It has the PCs working somewhat with a notoriously "evil" figure and a bit of (rather interesting) plane hopping.

If you also love Ravenloft then Carrion Crown is another to look at.


Sounds like a fun party concept. THIS might also prove useful to you in this endeavor.


Which is why Deadly Agility is the superiorly designed feat. Slashing Grace is wonky with silly wording. I agree with the house ruling it to work with any light or one-hander NewXToa.

Out of curiosity, what does the Slayer look like right now?

Indeed, more info would be helpful. What is his race, level, and current feats and talents?

18 starting Dex, TWF, Weapon Finesse, and the Deadly Agility feat should work wonders for him. By level 3 (when he can have all 3 of those feats and when sneak attack comes online) he will be sitting pretty and contributing quite nicely.

Or, the easy way taking advantage of the fact that it's a Slayer:

18 starting Strength, TWF via Ranger style.

Could push your Dex up enough to get TWF normally and get the supporting feats from the combat style, but a Slayer has very little need of Dex to support TWF.

It is an expenditure of resources, but I like and prefer the Dex focused build, due to all the other synergies Dex has with the class and style.


I assume you mean non-Paizo instead of non-core, seeing as the Slayer isn't "core" (as in core rulebook only). Nevertheless if you guys are vehemently anti-3rd party he can still do this with Slashing Grace (from the same book the Slayer class is found in) and proficiency in sawtooth sabers. Basically something like this:

1: Weapon Finesse, EWP: Sawtooth Saber
3: Weapon Focus
4: TWF (from Ranger Combat Style talent)
5: Slashing Grace
6: ITWF (from Ranger Combat Style talent)

This achieves the exact same thing I posted above, it just takes longer and requires more feats. Level 5 is when this grows into fruition and will be solid for the rest of the campaign. (I'm assuming that he took trapfinding as his level 2 slayer talent based on what you said in the OP)


18 starting Dex, TWF, Weapon Finesse, and the Deadly Agility feat should work wonders for him. By level 3 (when he can have all 3 of those feats and when sneak attack comes online) he will be sitting pretty and contributing quite nicely.


Personally I would drop the Int to 10 and make your Con a 15, putting your first point there at level 4. You are still getting 4 skill points per level which covers all the basics.


Hmm, how sea-bound will this campaign be?


Looks like you pretty much got it all. Tome of Horrors should be in the GM category (it is a bestiary, a giant one), Akashic Mysteries should be in the class options category (it's basically the same type of book that Ultimate Psionics and Path of War are, being the Pathfinder version of the Incarnum subsystem), and you left Rappan Athuk and Slumbering Tsar of the adventures list. Other than that, looks bueno.


Whenever we don't roll and/or play published adventures everyone get a stat array of 16, 15, 14, 13, 12, 11 to place however you want. Works like a charm.

I'm somewhat surprised that no one else mentioned it since you said you were looking for more tech options (unless I missed it), but Age of Electrotech might be just what you are looking for. It is by the company that did the Pathfinder update to Pact Magic.

Other than that I can only echo what everyone else has said.

For player options: Ultimate Psionics, Path of War, Deep Magic are all great.
For settings my favorites are Midgard and Freeport.
For adventures you have Way of the Wicked and anything by Frog God Games, specifically Rappan Athuk and Slumbering Tsar.


Actually, I would say Curse of the Crimson Throne would be even more of a perfect match for you. Sadly it is 3.5, out of print, and not available in nice pretty updated hardback compilation form like Runelords is.
