I suppose I should. I have seen some games that didn't get off the ground (and that annoyed me greatly) so I have developed a habit of not posting on the alias till the game started. It makes me able to delete it if I don't want it anymore. Just an old habit that I never broke. I will start posting as Amara. :)

I also like to make my games a bit multimedia, to enhance the experience. I'll link to songs and label them soundtrack if they're for in game. I have also set up the dreaded Pinterest board, which I will link in the campaign thread.
Dreaded Pinterest? Why that label?

Since you offer additional RP, I will start with no gear (even though it is on my alias) and obtain it in Oldenburg. I like RP.

Touching story. You put a lot of thought into it and it shows. I like it.

Hey, sorry I didn't say anything earlier...but, I loved your story Amara. Things have been a little crazy and I only just had time to look at it. It was very good as well. Nice job portraying her yearning for freedom. In that way she has a lot in common with Rose. :o)
Thanks! It fit with her having predator instincts. That side of her wants to be free, very much so. That is why I chose Chaotic Good for an alignment. I would have done Neutral Good if not for that.
I know, I was just making a point how having to pay for one can put some people off. Again, I do realize that this is free. I was perusing it earlier.

Hopefully third concept is the charm. Please accept Jubal's submission: Dr. Gideon Renselaer - Alchemist (Chirurcheon & Crypt Breaker). He is very intelligent and disarmingly charming. His excellence in alchemy and healing almost matches his bedside manner.

And you missed GM Dust's point entirely. In your post you never mentioned anything at all about it being a draft. Your post is quoted for clarity here. You submitted a complete character. So the fault is your own. May you have better luck making future characters of higher quality.
Raubtier sounds cool. I'll take 3.
The character was simple to choose gear for, she uses her claws and bite for the most part.
And I have finished. I present Amara Nacht, a Raubtier Slayer.
If I missed anything I will rectify it as soon as I can. Tired today and it was hot too. Like almost 100 degrees fahrenheit.
Thanks! Much appreciated. I had specific reasons in mind for asking since I am making an experiment. This is factoring in to the backstory a lot. It was the way my creativity took me. :)
GM Dust, what else is known about this learning center? Is it a large complex? Is there any wildlife and outdoor areas with more than just desert in said center? Things like trees, grass, shrubbery, and the like. I am looking to incorporate more into the backstory that is emerging and this will help me to integrate the character better.

I am seriously considering making a Wildblooded Sage. I noticed this archetype recently and it has an appeal that I want to do something with.
I am going to work with this concept and build it from here. The ideas are beginning to take shape and it feels like something I would have much fun with. I will post more when I am further along in the process. Hero Lab for the win!
About the feat Scent of Fear, would you allow this? It is from the Classic Monsters Revisited. I realize that it is for Bugbears, however, being an experiment this can be explained by taking the traits from a variety of races that they used in their dna manipulation.
I'll post more in the morning. Heading to bed now.
True, though the slayer has a different enough progression to cause me to consider it.

I just thought of this as I was looking at the build in Hero Lab. For a subtype, how do you feel about my adding Human? Or would it be too much? I feel it would fit the theme for the race, though it is up to you if it is allowed.
I agree, though I am going to look at the Advanced Class Guide for the Slayer and see if that would be a good fit. So far it seems like it would be.
GM Dust, may I use the ACG if I desire said class? Or is it off limits?
I am debating which Ability Score Modifier Quality to pick. I can easily select one, but the theme is what I am attempting to stay within. The one I am leaning toward is Flexible.
For other racial abilities, I am looking at the following:
These abilities are not set, just what I am currently looking at. The final draft may be quite different.
Once I have settled on some racial traits and abilities, I am going to want a class that represents how they would develop. I am open to ideas as I peruse the selections.
I intend to have predator-like abilities, and part of the process of being who they are is finding out why they feel the way they do, and how to balance one side with the other.
I will try to make it blend in a way that does not create inter-party conflict, except maybe internally. Trying to balance a rational, reasoning mind with the instinct of a predator. Should be most challenging from an in-character perspective.

Yeah, an experiment might work. Something to survive out in the wasteland.
I think I like this idea. An experiment to see what would happen when they melded human genes into a reptile. The mother had been altered, but in the end she died from complications when they changed too much too soon, though she had a child, and they survived. They grew up in the Learning Center, and when they hit the equivalent of puberty they began to develop some other abilities that had not been present before. The human side needed to mature before the reptilian side came out.
What do you think?
In breaking down the race, I think I would like to make this something of an experiment. In that I mean I would like to have this character be something of a creation. Maybe cloned, or a reptile that had humanoid genes mixed in to see what the outcome would be. They would be the final result in a long process.
That's what I have come up with so far. Thoughts, anyone?
Ok, I have a picture I found while perusing Deviant Art. It is reptilian, small or medium depending on how one chooses to look at it. Here is the image link. I have some basic ideas on what they might have for racial abilities, but have little experience building a race. Any feedback and insight from anyone who wishes to contribute is most welcome.
Or I could make something that looks like this.

I'm going to need more than 24 hours. At this point I should probably bow out rather than hold up everyone else. Good luck all!
