That will be up tomorrow. I wrote it at work but left it there. :)


Okay,recruitment is over and time to post my selections before I change my mind again. I was overwhelmed by the interest you have all shown and the great concepts I read. Thank you all for your applications. Unfortunately, I have to go by gut instinct and can take only five. The players selected are:

Varren Durensen - Paladin (Stonelord) (Orphaned)
Kurag Urlot - Ranger (Horselord) (Vexing)
Janek Frrarson - Sorcerer (Artifact)
Jalnara Steelhand - Druid (Giantslayer)
Ingra Forgeheart - Cleric (Artifact)

You may report to following Thread: Discussion

Thank you all.


Welcome, let's try to make this an enjoyable experience for all. Please finalize your characters, equipment, etc. as needed, for my review. You can introduce each other, if you wish. As I stated, I have an alternate start in mind for this AP, so bear with me and I will try to keep it fun.

So whatever your characters were about to do (leave citadel/go search for missing family/seek vengeance/adventure/etc.), you were interrupted when you received by messenger a summons to meet at the private chambers of a local guard captain at noon. Out of respect, you decide to appear. With that in mind, you can post in the Gameplay thread.

Need Kurag's campaign trait and Torak's class (fighter?)
If I missed anyone, let me know.


Miteke: This game is based on an AP. You should familiarize yourself with the Free Player's Guide, which has the campaign traits: Player's Guide


Quick note:

I have been reading the backgrounds and enjoyed them very much. I was internally debating an alternate start to this AP. For anyone familiar with the AP, it starts with a murder investigation for the first couple of levels and I just don't see a dwarven band of adventurers playing detectives for a human town. Thus, I am starting the game in Janderhoff. For those who have already submitted backgrounds, be willing to tweak your background to reflect this, if chosen, rather than starting your character in Trunau. For those who have not yet submitted applications, keep this in mind. For any characters who selected the Native of Trunau trait (I think only 1 or 2), feel free to change it. Sorry for the extra work. :)

Oh and just my two cents, but not every dwarf has to be an outcast! Part of what is great and unique about dwarves is their love of clan, family, and unity.

sorry, that slipped my mind. Easy fix though.

I wasn't directing my comment solely at you, Rorek. Varren and Khizgir also violate character creation rules. :)


I will reiterate it one more time only regarding stats, even though it is quite clear in character creation rules: maximum 18 and minimum 8 after racial adjustment – no more than one stat under 10. If your character does not abide by these rules, he will not be selected. :)


I am happy for the interest.

Responses to questions:
1. Black Dow, yes you can take additional traits feat
2. Cuan, will have to see the final version when it comes out to make that call
3. Paladin Baha, no, strictly dwarves.
4. Rorek, there will definitely be downtime. Please adhere to lowest stat of 8 character creation rule.


Unchained classes are fine. Glad to see there is interest. I will leave recruitment open until 8/3/15 at 7pm EST to give you plenty of time. If enough applications are received and interest has waned down, I reserve the right to move up the deadline.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Ok, the Giantslayer AP (recalls the Against the Giants series!) screams out to me: all dwarven-band of adventurers! I love dwarves so that is what I am looking for: 4-5 dwarf characters hailing from Janderhoff ready to take on this AP!

Character creation rules:
• 1st level
• No evil alignments (must be able to play nice with group)
• 20 point buy (maximum 18 and minimum 8 after racial adjustment – no more than one stat under 10)
• Classes: Any published Paizo class or archetype (nothing from the current playtest, no psionics, no guns).
• 2 Traits, one of which must be campaign. No rich parents trait and no drawbacks.
• 150 gp to start
• HP: Max at 1st level; ½+1 per level after
• Looking for players who can post regularly and consistently.

Character application:
No need to create separate alias, if you do not want. Looking for:
Visual description of character, mannerisms, etc. – if I can picture your character, that is a plus for you
2 things you love most; 2 things you hate
What made you want to adventure and volunteer to leave the Sky Citadel; what makes you special
Brief history of your character – incorporate your traits, background, any other detail to make your character come alive to me.
Your posting habits and experience with PbP.

About me:
I have over 15 years of gaming under my belt and I am excited about this idea for this AP. I have GMed two prior PbP games that ended prematurely due to RL issues. I am free enough now to dedicate the sufficient time to this game.

Any questions, let me know.


The cold weather outfits are available. The only cold iron weapons available in the village are arrows and a dagger.


Merick, I have a way to bring you in, as a friend of Yuln Oerstag, whom the party has already met. He's a northerner too so it makes perfect sense. Unless you can think of something better.

Delweir, I need more help on a hook for you. What would you be doing in this northern village of Heldren?


I've found 2 players already. You can post here prelim stuff and we can get started in full on Monday, if not sooner.


Good idea, Marek. I'm still here. Is Vesna? Should I recruit?


1 response in 6 days does not bode well at all.


2 responses in 6 days....does not bode well.


Hey all, apologies for my long absence (RL + holidays). Just checking if there is still interest in this game or should I just forget it? Thanks and if you have moved on, good luck in your future games.

Hey all, just letting you know that I'm still around. Just RL got quite hectic last week. Expect a post in the in the next couple of days. Thanks for your patience.

Feel free to continue rp, just wanted to move action along.


Sorry for delay; work got a little busy but I'm back.


I downloaded Google Drive and I shared the map, but how would you move the markers? I use the map on MapTools. I'm not very tech savvy. :)


Okay, need some help/input on bringing the 2 players in. Borden's connection with Abadar and Damrak makes sense. How about Beatrice? Does she know any of the other party members or Borden? I want to bring both Beatrice and Borden in together. Please chime in.


Okay, so thanks to player input, the 2 players selected are:

Beatrice the Witch
Borden

Thank you for all your applications and I hope your characters find other PbPs in which to shine!

Players selected please report to the Discussion Thread: Link


Left map on home pc. Will update tonight. Thanks for your patience.


Thank you all for your applications. RECRUITMENT CLOSED. Selections coming shortly.


Any thoughts on Borden, cleric of Abadar?


Thanks for the input Grim and your detailed breakdown Den. I had many similar thoughts.


Okay, no more new applicants will be accepted. I will give Dathom, Azten, and anybody who already posted an interest until tomorrow at 11am EST to finalize their submission. A decision on the two players shall be posted shortly thereafter.


About to close recruitment - would like some input either here or pm regarding applicants.


@Agrona: As I explained in my initial post, the 3 current party members are at the Trading Post. Can you expand as to what your half-orc witch's motivation would be to join the party?

@jimibones: There is already a ranger in the party so he has the necessary survival and knowledge nature skills, so you may stick to sorcerer, but up to you.

@Titian: Thanks, looks good.


Thanks for the applications so far. I will leave recruitment open until Wednesday at 6:00 pm EST.

@Bejan: While the brawler build sounds fun, party is looking more to spellcasters, divine and arcane.

@Faffnyr: Thanks for applying again.

List of applications (Tik-tik was not listed since class has not been narrowed down):

Spirit-Talker Avernus Mildari - Halfling Aetherurgist Oracle of Ancestors
Agrona Rivertusk - Half-orc witch (Scarred Witch Doctor)
Beatrice the Witch - Half-elf witch
Titian Stagson - Human sorcerer


Appreciate the kind words, Den. The new recruitment thread is up. Feel free to comment on the applications, if and when they come in.


Hey all, my Kingmaker group of 6 players is down to 3 and we just lost our wizard and cleric! The current cast of players (all of whom are still 1st level) consists of:

Olo, archaeologist bard
Grimwrath, dwarven warpriest
Dendarial, elven ranger

The game is still early in its infancy. For those familiar with the story, the players set up an ambush for Happs and his men and were successful in defending Oleg's Trading post. Now they're looking to do some exploration, until they gain a level, so they can go take on the bandit camp.

Here was the original recruitment thread: Link

If you applied previously, I will give you preferential treatment.

Any questions, let me know.


I had a feeling. Those 2 appear to be gone so we're down to 3 from 6. Now what? Re-recruit? Let game die? Let me know what you guys want to do.


Uh oh. Did we lose 2 more?


Can Anibeth and Athenasius just report in? I want to make sure we have not lost anyone since the bandit ambush. Thx!


Exploration rules:

One thing is traveling through a hex, which takes certain time depending on the party's speed.

Another is exploring a hex (per your charter), where you detail and map and uncover every nook and cranny for later development, etc. That usually takes 1+ days.

So when you choose a hex, let me know what you're doing: traveling through or exploring. Thanks!


Greenbelt Map added to campaign info tab (will update as you explore).


I am going away for the Easter weekend so I will not update the thread until Sunday.

Not doubting you, Den, just could not find an in-game source for it.
