Did this once with a party of Dwarves holed up in an isolated farmstead with some advanced firearms. A column of 1000s of zulus, sorry Elves, came at them. Sustained fire from the rifles and a few fireballs here and there helped stop the tide. Was a fun session.

Btw, "caught" and "cot" are pronounced exactly the same.

Over here Caught rhymes with bought and Cot rhymes with lot.

46. Diurnals: Crystals that emit (coloured) light as a torch whilst the sun is in the sky over the place of their enchantment.


I did a homebrew All Dwarf campaign a few years ago (ok maybe 10 but who's counting). The premise was that the dwarves were the islamic like inhabitants of an area and the Christian like Elves came Crusading. A Memorable adventure within the campaign was a restyling of Roarkes Drift. the PCs were held up in a lodge with a thousand elves charging at them. Some rifles and a whole bunch of fireballs later the Elves were decimated and the dwarves stood for another day.

To answer your question directly, no I don't.


To be clear America also totally rocks for having guys like Bill Nye.

Hello. I am hoping that the forums can help me fine tune a number pathfinder characters. This is theoretical party build for my own use. These are not optimised by any stretch just ideas about building a group that would nicely complement each other. Any tweaks to my current builds would be greatly appreciated.

They are:
Isaiah Wetmore: Human Fighter (no archetype), specialism: Archery
Coral Giovanetti: Half-Elf Paladin (Holy Tactician)
Elzen Scarpenetti: Elf Rogue (Scout/Investigator)
Luminostroglio Caligari: Elf Wizard (Transmuter)
Tan Xin: Halfling Cleric (Merciful Healer)

The fighter is a devil with a bow, the rogue is a tracker the paladin buffing with teamwork feats, the wizard is a crafter of constructs plus buffing with spells and the cleric keeping everyone alive with healing. I imagine them as a military squad given the “special missions” to go behind enemy lines etc.

Builds (All 20pt buy)

Isaiah Wetmore:
Human, Fighter (no archetype)
Str: 14
Dex: 17 (15+2 race)
Con: 14
Int: 13
Wis: 10
Cha: 10

20 – Teleport Tactician

Skills: main skills are Craft (Bows), Profession (soldier) and Perception with occasional ranks Knowledge (arcana) (dungeoneering) (engineering), bluff, climb, handle animal, intimidate, ride, sense motive, survival and swim
Notes: low levels can act as switch hitter, Int, human, and fast learner give him 5 skill ranks per level, once point blank master and snap shot kick in can use bow close up (will have the AC to back that up, can move full speed in armor)

Coral Giovanetti:
Half-Elf Paladin (Holy Tactician)
Str: 12
Dex: 13
Con: 10
Int: 10

13 – Divine Interference
15 – Bodyguard, Pack Attack
17 – In Harm’s Way
19 – Dazzling Display, Duck and Cover

Skills: concentrate on heal and diplomacy with some intimidate, bluff and sense motive
Notes: In combat can use either bow or Morningstar and shield, buffs allies with teamwork feat to maximise feint/flanking for fighter and rogue, back up healer to cleric, high-ish Cha so can act as face (archetype swaps out divine bond so actually ends up being the slowest member of the group if wearing medium/heavy armor with no way to mitigate the slowdown)

Elzen Scarpenetti:
Elf Rogue (Scout/Investigator)
Str: 14
Dex: 16 (14 +2 race)
Con: 10 (12 -2 race)

9 – Weapon Focus: Longsword
10 – Hunter’s Surprise
11 – Lightning Reflexes
12 – Slippery Mind
13 – Improved Lightning Reflexes
14 – Thoughtful Re-examining
15 – Spring Attack
16 – Opportunist
17 – Sidestep
18 – Hard to Fool
19 – Improved Sidestep
20 – Another Day

Skills: High Int and rogue gives plenty to work with but max in perception and bluff would be a must, plus Face skills. Can also fill out the knowledge skills to back up the wizard
Notes: Plenty of skill ranks to put in Face skills, use the paladin as a flanking buddy, make most of the teamwork feats from the paladin.

Luminostroglio Caligari:
Elf Wizard (Transmuter, Opp – Illusion, Enchantment)
Str: 11
Dex: 15 (13 +2 race)
Con: 11 (13 -2 race)

11 – Maximise Spell
13 – Extra Channel
15 – Channelled Revival
17 – Warrior Priest
19 – Lucky Halfling

Skills: Heal. Has enough Cha to back up the main party face
Notes: mechanically this character is mostly a heal-bot. Would swap out slow speed/sure footed for fleet of foot to keep up with the taller party members

A Steak pun? That's a rare medium well done.


As a former archer I would say that using a longbow as a melee weapon would be incredibly ineffective. Basically what you are hitting your opponent with is a long, light, very flexible stick, almost like a switch. It would be very unwieldy and cause minimal if any damage, even if you used with both hands on it. It would unlikely survive being swung in such a manner once or maybe twice if you unstrung it first. What possible benefit could you be trying to get by categorising it as a 2H weapon?


Gauss Cannons
Rail Guns


Idris Elba is one of three actors that i would love to see as the Doctor, he would be brilliant.


Just remember two things about you paladin. Int was probably your dump stat and you are Immune To Fear!

55. Impress the yokels by pointing at something and have the unseen servant move it a little bit.


I think all my AD&D characters had that kind of array. I was famous for always rolling average stats. In fact one of my favourite characters from the last days of 2nd ed would have killed to have stats that good.

But the real issue isnt the stats. Others here have already weighed in on that subject though

30. Have it rotate quickly to create a cooling breeze on hot day


So many games, so many characters. This is one I have a soft spot for:

Zelmar of Scarpsey. My first 3.0 character. An Elven Rogue. Fell in with an odd bunch of fellows at a local festival and went on to have many curious adventures. The thing was he was awful at being any kind of thief. One time he actually got caught stealing washing from a line. But he was ever so charming and had really amazing moments of extraordinary luck when doing anything other than rogue type stuff.

Its 3.x but Goodman Games published Aerial Adventures: The Sky Captians Handbook. Its full of skyhips, aerial races, feats etc. See if you can track copy or pdf down.


If i ever opened such a shop I would call it "Games & Theory". This is the secret police division of the military in Starship Trooper.

Again Ruloc thank you for sharing your talent with us.


If its not too cheeky I am going to add another character to the bottom of the list. This is a character that I played for while a couple of years ago joining an Age of Worm campaign part way through. That was put on hiatus for a while to give others the chance to GM. We will shortly be going back to it.

Jaygo Lightfoot – Human, Male, Wizard 12 (Conjurer)

Jaygo Lightfoot:

[Casting choice: Alexander Skarsgard]

Jaygo Lightfoot is very tall for a human, he stands out from most other wizards at 6'6". He has short blond hair, a handsome face with an easy smile. Jaygo is always clean-shaven; he is still in his twenties and feels that a beard would be wasted on his youth and only plans to grow one once he has gone grey in his old age. His ornate crystal glasses cannot hide his intense blue eyes that show a keen and perceptive intellect, with a particular fondness for new languages. On his head is a well-crafted headband of silver and gold, and above his head floats a small red prism-shaped gemstone.

Whilst Jaygo has fairly broad shoulders he has a slender frame that could give him a gangly appearance if he was not so naturally poised and graceful. Perched on his shoulder is the Raven Doctor Sin, loyal companion to Jaygo since his boyhood days in his apprenticeship as a wizard. A keen mind for a bird, Doctor Sin has always been a useful source of information and a sounding board for Jaygo to bounce ideas from.

Jaygo wears a finely tailored suit [pretty much a jacket, waistcoat, shirt etc], with a cloak, of purple with dark blue and black highlights. A single gold band on his right hand balances two silver rings on his left. Ornate leather bracers cover his forearms. He usually wears his dark brown leather haversack when out and about, slung under that is a very well made light crossbow. Jaygo is never without his stout oaken walking staff, which can in a pinch act as quarterstaff.

[Extra Flavor if useful: In play, Jaygo prefers to use summon spells (Hound Archons and Elementals in particular) and to use teleport effects to manoeuvre around the battlefield. For blasting spells he prefers Wall of Fire and Scorching Ray where possible.]

Absolutely worth the wait, thank you. Awesome.

Hi, yes I would prefer Ulric. Thank you.


Change of tactics

[Casts Gentle Repose on thread]


Go up to 450 and give it another hit. Clear!


The internet is your friend here. You should be able to Google up some maps quite quickly that you can use as is or modify for your needs.


This is not a bump, more a gentle nudge.


Another slight amendment: My request (half-orc ranger) from page 1 was never actually drawn by anyone so should still be on the list. But thats ok since that PC died in a TPK fighting a BBEG.


I get why you went with Invulnerable Rager, but did you consider the Mounted Fury archetype? You know for the mount your character concept should have :)


Thanks to Shifty for going through the thread to compile the list.


Clearly it is I that is the cursed one. Nicholas stopped just as I was coming up in the queue as well. So sorry everyone.


I have soft spot for Waves. But that's because my current character is a barbarian/oracle that is very much a Viking so Waves make sense for him.


Just another post to express my admiration for your art posted so far, very cool.


I should also mention that sometimes our dice are atrocious and then the cleric of the group takes us both to school


In my current game I am playing a Barbarian (well actually Barb/Oracle multi-class going for Rage Prophet, but that's a whole other thread). There is a fighter also in the group and as the front liners we both dish out damage. He does smaller damage more often, and when I actually hit, things just die.


If I may add a request for my current PC:

(Human Barbarian/Oracle): Ulric stands at an even 6 foot, blond wavy hair flows down to his shoulders, it is keep off his eyes by a simple leather headband. Bright blue eyes look out from a pale and ruggedly handsome face. His long blond beard and moustache are both braided. Ulric body has a thin frame but it is covered with solid muscle and he is able to push all his physical limits when entering a berserker rage. His long legs can carry him with swift and sure strides.
Ulric wears an ornate set of breastplate armor over worn but serviceable travelling clothes made of seal-leather dyed blue and white. The motif on the armor shows a long-ship cresting a wave. Sturdy Whale-fur boots are tied with seal-leather cords.
Ulric carries a long hafted great-axe. The grey steel blade, forged by a master-smith of his homeland, has a similar motif to the armor. A fully stocked backpack and numerous belt pouches allow Ulric to organise his equipment, which can at times be of critical importance.
Despite his formidable appearance Ulric has an easygoing nature and is quick to smile. He is willing to buy everyone drinks and tell them tales of his homeland or his recent adventures. However there is something slightly odd about him, to most people it is just a minor feeling of unease caused by strange noises, odd shifts of breeze or a drop in temperature. To those with The Sight, mostly harmless but sometimes malevolent otherworldly spirits surround Ulric. These are only able to affect the physical world in some minor ways as noted earlier or rearranging Ulric's gear in his backpack. Ulric is, however, learning to tap into this phenomenon as a source of knowledge and power.

Thank you in advance

In most groups there is an, usually unspoken, idea that PCs don,t charge each other for services rendered unto the party. This is why they compared what you were doing to charging for cures etc. Now it might be In Character for you to add a fee, Abadar is all about commerce after all, but trying to charge the party crosses a line that you might not have known was there.


I liked it but was always a bit bummed that since they used the bad guys from Rom that Rom didn't get to appear and save the day.

Yes I am that much of a geek.


"It's a trap. Get an Axe!"


36 guy from UK, non military but did two years in Army Cadets. Started playing in mid 80s, my neighbours dad was a gamer. Played more in 2nd ed more though then 3rd until a big break of a few years now playing Pathfinder (and Paranoia).


Hi, another yorkshire player here, I have games in huddersfield and Halifax.


It's ok folks, the good people of Tumblr have figured this out. The Mayans were just counting down to The Hobbit movie.

Blasphemy against fictional deities for fun and profit. :)


Already posted on the other forum, this was eaten when I tried to post the other day, attempt two.

This is my current Pathfinder character. I am playing in a homebrew campaign and my favoured enemy bonus is getting plenty of use. This is actually my second character in this game, the first was an Elven Rogue but he after he died I drew inspiration from The Last of The Mohicans and the following image pop into mind and just had to really. So if anyone would sketch this PC I would be eternally grateful.

Uncas, Half-Orc Ranger 5 Description: Uncas is a towering figure, standing just shy of seven feet tall. He has green skin deepened by a life spent outdoors. His clean-shaven face is broad and jaw line, strong. Uncas has long hair that is pure black and it is always tied back into a single, tightly braided, ponytail. He wears a thick fur outfit that gives him a bear-like demeanour. Uncas has a large tattoo of tribal markings that covers his left leg, left arm and left half of his body and face. With a casual glance it might seem to be just a black tattoo, a closer look reveal deep reds and blues within the swirling pattern.

Uncas uses two signature weapons, a mighty Longbow and a unique blue Greataxe. Both of which were made specifically for him. The bow has a simple elegance though it is clearly reinforced for the great strength of its owner. The Greataxe is also of simple but deadly design, the haft and blade crafted from a single piece of blue stained steel. It is roughly a thin triangular shape with the head of the axe the wide end, slightly kinked to the side. The haft is wrapped in leather straps to provide a firm grip. He also has a large knife in a sheath at his belt. Never far from his side is the loyal Magua, a wolf. Magua fur is grey, ranging from light grey of his underbelly to the almost black fur running down his back.
