You might want to stick a CR cap on the "race" since otherwise that becomes way more interesting than 1-8 levels in a spellcasting class.

For example, I become a Solar Angel. Immortal, and DR/epic and Regen 15 (evil) makes me practically unkillable. SR gives a partial defense against other new casters. Plus Wish as a (free) spell-like ability 1/day, a set of other SLAs including constant True Seeing, and spellcasting as a 20th level cleric.

And being an Angel is good PR.

That's one thing that would be fantastic...having a single artist with a strong, distinct style doing at least all of the primary interiors to give all those interwoven characters a unifying look.

[tangent] Perhaps because of the Crown/Orb/Scepter of Might from 1st edition, I always wanted to see non-Western versions of the 'regalia,' such as a Sword/Jewel/Mirror for a Japanese set. An Egyptian set is harder, 'though, because there's the Crown/Uraeus/Mask, the Was/Scepter, the Ankh, the Flail, the Scarab and the Spear. Nailing it down to just three (Scepter/Flail/Crown?) becomes an issue, because some of them, like the ankh and scarab, are also pretty iconic. Coming up with thematic powers also becomes a thing. The ankh is life, the uraeus / crown is rulership and wisdom, the flail represents agriculture, the was/scepter measurement (determining value) and architecture, etc. [/tangent]

I need this in my life.

Maybe some of that plague from the Foxglove manor can be found. It takes the PCs like a month to get to Turtleback (and thus a month back) she could kill the whole town with that plague while they are gone. If she did manage something like this, then let them know it was her. Her transformation complete she moves away and leaves a book detailing how she did it, how she ticked them, how they helped her and how all the deaths she caused are their fault. Have fun with that Paladin.

:/

Alternately: Keep the possibility of the PC's actually getting through to her on the table and actually possible.

Turning PC victories into complete poison with them being unable to have any agency in what happens is one of the quickest ways to turn people off of the game.

I have played good characters that have been on the recieving end of this treatment. And yeah, some of them paladins.

Having every redemption attempt blow up in my face killed any desire to continue those campaigns for me.

I'd prefer to see it more heavily guided by roleplay. Like say the nature of the rebellion will be heavily influenced by how the PCs choose to wage their part in it. No matter what, the PC's probably will have to deal with people taking it too far, but they'll likely have a lot less of that on their hands if they present a visible face that lives up to the ideals rather than compromising them.

While I agree that moral complexity would be welcome here(especialy given how RP-oriented it's being made out to be) and that rebellions in real life are hardly pretty things, heroic fantasy also doesn't have to wallow in the worst elements of reality by default. We have Milani for example. Players should have the option of actually being able to live up to her ideal, though they will most likely have to work for it.

edit-Ooh, what if we get a member of House Thrune attempting to defect? One that the PCs have to decide whether or not to trust and may very well have to protect from more vengeful elments of the rebellion?

Alrighty. All good thoughts. Question: what is it about the Vishkanyas that you like (if you are one of the people asking for them)? Most of the other races I get. But Vishkanyas elude me. What about them makes them a race you love? Is it the "they make natural ninjas" aspect that you like or what?

This is just my opinion, but:

It's a bit of the "snake person" vibe combined with the perception of them being poisonous(metaphorically) outsiders within the very cultures they live in while at the same time possibly having an established place within it(especially if there's a caste system going on). It's a bit of the tiefling stigma, but with a bit more acceptability while still being held at arm's length.

That and the race just screams "court intrigue" to me. And they also serve as a natural fit for building naga-centric cultures around(I have to admit that I prefer the vishkanya over the nagaji for this role).

...I guess if I had to sum up what I want out of vishkanyas, it would be: Ascetic decadence.

Or decadent asceticism.

One of those two. ;)

But when I peek in the thread against my better judgment and see someone trying to justify rape and only one person has called him on it, I'm damn well going to say something.

I may not agree with LazarX on a lot of matters but I'm glad he did call that for the poisonous #%*+ it is. That crap has no place here. Or anywhere else.

Talking with the WotR group, if we ever played this we're thinking about having everyone come from the same troubled family that may or may not be torn apart by the rebellion. A bit of a Dragon Age 2 vibe possibly. :)

Abadarite cleric father, infernal sorceress mother hiding her bloodline's nature, the good son paladin of Iomedae who has all the family's expectations dumped on him, the bastard(except not really) tiefling son who gets treated like a black sheep by everyone but the paladin, the dutiful daughter that was in training to join the Hellknights before dropping out and is sick of living in the paladin's shadow, the younger brawling tomboy daughter that keeps getting into scraps in the streets, the youngest son everyone is trying to shield from the horrors of the conflict, the halfling head servant/Bellflower agent, the old butler/former assassin that takes the tiefling under his bloody wing...

God I really want to play this now.

Y'know, I actually came to tabletop RPGs from videogames and I was rather shocked and put off by how decidedly unheroic and, well, murderous and uncaring the other PCs were.

Link, Simon Belmont, and Cecil Harvey they were decidedly not. Even the Bad Dudes were more invested in the world around them.

After all, they did save the president from ninjas.

It just seemed a waste to be presented with a medium where you could have a fully fleshed out fantasy world with endless possibilities as far as how you could interact with it and craft your own character's story only to see all of it reduced to "can kill this/can take advantage of this/can sell loot to this".

Gah! I just started watching the new movies and I am both thrilled and aching inside because I know where it's going.

What is Guts? What Movies are you watching?

I’m just curious :)

Berserk, an anime which has been remade as high quality animated movies. Believe there is like 3 movies out at the moment, maybe more? While it is anime/manga, Berserk is a dark fantasy world. Guts is the main protagonist, a barbarian essentially with a huge sword.

I'd recommend to watch it.

There's a lot more going on in the series beyond that description too. I do recommend it but it really does require some warnings beforehand: It is triggery as hell.

Spoiler:
It says a lot when all three of the central characters have suffered rape in one form or another.

That said, the drama can pull you in and the artwork in the manga quickly grows from decent into some of the most beautifully rendered in the business, even if much of the subject matter is horrible horrible horrible good God why

You'll get a different experience if you start with the manga or the old anime TV series, which only covered the first major arc of the manga and

Spoiler:
ends at the worst place in the story possible.

The movies seem to be telling the story the TV series covered, both trimmed down a bit and also with elements of the manga added back in that weren't in the original anime. The new movies are also really pretty compared to the TV series, sticking much more closely to the art style of the manga though the 2-D/3-D meshing can be dodgy at times(I've been told it improves in the later movies).

I haven't finished the movies yet, but from what I've seen, if you go with the TV series you'll get a longer telling of the story with some manga elments missing but also with some of the more low key elements expanded or added in. The movies(starting with The Egg of the King) are faster paced, tells the story in a much more constrained amount of time, but adds some manga elements back in. And the animation and art quality gets quite a bump. The secondary cast also gets a bit more attention in the TV series, at least it seems to in comparison to the first movie.

If you start with the manga....you will highly likely detest the main character all the way until somewhere in the third volume.

Spoiler:
For me it was when you(and Puck) see Guts' heartless exterior crack for the first time.

Also, with the manga, you have Puck. How you feel about Puck is going to be hard to gauge. While I think the relief he provides is totally necessary to get through certain stretches of the story, some of the fourth-wall breakage can be a bit much for some. (most just complain about him not having pants)

Also, "Forces" and "Aria" are two of the best pieces of dark fantasy music ever. :)

It's always bugged me that humanity is so often seen as having exclusive rights to those best elements often folded into the term "humanity". Especially when dealing with celestials that are descended from human and other mortal souls.

Personally, I'd figure the unifying factor between various human and decidedly non-human approaches to good could be empathy and spin outward from there. Leaves things plenty open for some beings to dip into truly alien morality while still being recognizably good. Like say a being who has difficulty separating individuals from a group but still recognizes when one is in need. So he/she/it/zie/xarblebrop tries to lend assistance scattershot throughout whatever group that individual is a part of, honestly thinking "I'm/We're/This One is helping!"

edit-suddenly reminded of that old New Mutants backissue where

"Don't play the character you want to play" isn't really going to get much traction as a solution to issues some folks have with the system.

That said, I've got really high hopes for Pathfinder Unchained.

I like to think that LG, NG, and CG approaches will all be equally at home and exalted in this campaign. :)

Can't have a proper rebellion without a healthy mix of each, eh? (eyes Galt knowingly)

honestly do not know if I'd rather play through the ball infiltration as a dashing rogue or an honorable paladin trying to traverse that social minefield

I bet someone will complain about this change, even though it was called for.

Challenge Accepted.

I actually liked the fact that all the LG deities were not squeaky clean. I guess we can just keep ironing out all of the wrinkles until they are all the same...

Nothing bland about that.

Except this isn't making them all the same.

It's making Torag actually Good.

There is nothing bland about that unless one buys into the wrongheaded conceit that the only way things can be interesting or have depth is to grimdark them up.

Is long past burnt out on Good being portrayed as "good in name only" in this genre. Like by twenty or so years.
