Standard rules (I believe the critical fumble rule works against players with multiple attacks as they go up in level...i.e. the more attacks, the greater likelihood of rolling a "1". Doesn't make sense to me.) Also, I'm not a fan of the 3 20s = insta-kill rule as a GM (if I were, there would be a lot more dead PCs in my game..I'm well-known in my RL games for multiple crits!).
I need my main pc for the map so that will be posted during the weekend, but wanted to leave you on a cliffhanger! Mortimer and Stefan will get to act during the surprise round and then normal initiative, which I roll for the party. Hope you're enjoying the game so far! I am loving the rping! And for those familiar with the AP, note that I always deviate from the books so it will be fresh for you as well.
Ok, enough suspense! After a long thought process, here are the 5 applicants selected:
Gregorius half elf paladin
I am on my iPhone so I will set up the Discussion thread and game thread this weekend so we can start fully on Monday. Thank you for all the submissions, many difficult choices were made.
Alginon: At least once per day but more is better if you feel inspired, obviously.
Dr. Stefan: I was going to suggest a rank in profession (good job) to back up your claim that he is a doctor. As for the Professor's personality, I would say he was encouraging and fatherly in his personal relations but in his teachings, he was a taskmaster to his students, seeking to squeeze every inch of promise from them. So there existed this dichotomy of a man, kind yet strict and demanding. How that rubbed off on your character is up to you.
John, the deadline is November 10th by noon EST, so you may submit the alchemist. I am not a fan of the Rich Parents trait but if woven clearly and concisely and logically into a background, I have been known to accept it in the past.
Anselm, play your heart's desire. :)
I'd like to get in on this... Would you allow the new skinwalker race from Blood of the Moon? They are like half-lycanthropes. The synergy here would be fantastic! As soon as I get an answer, I will role up a character
I don't have that book. Could you tell me the specs of the race so I can make a decision?
Yes to feats question.Posting: The more the better with at least once per day during week. I tend to be on frequently so I will move game along fairly quickly, but will give ample time for party rp and interaction.

I don't know much about witches but your character looks like a sorcerer with the Shadow bloodline, not a witch. And how did he get 2 feats at 1st level as a tiefling?
Might be interested, what would be the pace of the game, fast with little roleplay. Slow with lots of roleplay, in between?
An equal mixture of role-play and combat with special attention paid to the ambiance and setting. Shooting for a Ravenloft-type feel.
Hello all, I'm back from a long hiatus and I've picked up GMing my Savage Tide PbP and I find myself with time on my hands so I'd like to give this AP a shot. After all, it's Halloween and I think a horror-filled campaign would be quite fun to play. At least that's how I'll be playing Ustalav: dark (shadowy during the day) and ominous. Looking for 4-5 souls to sacrifice...uh, I mean have some fun rping with. :-)
1st level, 15 point build (want to get gritty) (20 points only if you want to be a monk or paladin), all races from RG are open (your back story just has to make sense). No summoners, ninjas, or samurai. Average gold and 2 traits (1 has to be chosen from Player's Guide).
Familiarize yourself with the Player's Guide and come up with a connection to the Professor and why/how your character is in Ustalav, this Gods-forsaken land. Look forward to reading your concepts (I enjoy interesting backgrounds that I can possibly weave into the storyline later). Also list your posting frequency. Will close recruitment on 11/10 although, if I receive enough applicants, I reserve right to close earlier.
Any questions, let me know.
