Rutabaga!

Lol. I didn't realize rutebega was another name for turnip. I love turnips, especially mashed with carrots. Mmmmmm


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber

I don't think anyone ever has eaten a rutebega. It's like the vegetable equivalent of Bigfoot: Everyone knows what it is, but no one's actually seen one.

Edit: Also I know you said something along the line of "It's Sigil play what you want." But are there really no restrictions on race and class? Don't worry I like sticking to the core races aside from the occasional Changeling or Merfolk. I'm just more interested to know what classes and what Archtypes we are allowed to play. I will however wait on creating my character until the total party composition comes out. I like to be a team player and fill in needed roles, even healers. In fact I kinda enjoy playing healers. If only cause I like making them hit like trains at the same time lol.

Pat is pretty forgiving as far as making allowances for exactly the character you want to play (of course, he always reserves the right to veto something if it doesn't fit with the story). Just look at some of the weird things he's let me play in the past ;)

Lady Bethany Archaise
Stheno the Red Shadow

Yup. My game-fu is sloppy, no one will ever mistake me for a rules-stickler, and none of my games could be played PFS style. But I am a fairly consistent GM, and I like to think I do a decent job of making sure everyone has a good time.

** spoiler omitted **

Sorry-thumbnail sketch in this case means a brief outline of them. Example: Joe Smith, a smith in the Great Bazaar. Joe likes Theta, and occasionally lets them hang out by the forge and help with the chores for pay

The goals could be anything, but Sigil stuff can be used quicker by me to flesh out the game

The stuff would be anything. Magic items, armor, weapons, mounts. Anything in Pathfinder. This gives me ideas for loot placement in the future.

Family gives me plot hook ideas. It is more relevant if they are close, but there is always the 'family in trouble ' hook for a nice planar jaunt.

Pat, did you have a chance to see my PM?
I am going through the PMs right now. I worked 40 hours this weekend, so I'm a bit frazzled. I'll be returning notes over the next few days as I can
That's a big weekend mate. Rest up.

Still on the final stretch. I'm guarding a parking lot at 2:52 am local time as I type.


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Yeah, I will allow that. I'd like you all to be able to move on rather than be stuck here too long recovering.


DO NOT STICK FINGERS IN CAGE

Ok. Our discussion page. We'll be doing our character building and ooc stuff here from now on. Here is a list:

Players:

Edward
Mothman
Rknop
Drogoney
Celestial Healer
Flash
Tanner
Ken Marable

Alternates:
Theta Thief
Imortalmage
Woran
batpony

Ok. I didn't hear from Woran, so I am bumping them down to the alternate list. I am giving Ken the slot because having him ask to be a player in a Planescape game is the equivalent of having Jason Buhlman or James Jacobs ask to play in a Golarion game. Plus, I really want a well-played Modron character in this.

Alternates: do not despair. There are several ways you could get to the player spot. One: I might expand the slots once I see how the game handles. Two, often times in PbPs people drop out for various reasons. So, think on your character ideas and keep an eye out. I'll PM you should things occur that open a slot.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber

Thanks Mothy!

Ok, I am going to post a list of alternates and players on the discussion thread. I'd like this thread to die down a bit, because we have enough players and alternates and I'm a softy when it comes to letting people in. Everyone I have said is a player or alternate please check the discussion thread. The tab for it is at the top of the page

The Vineyard and Nantucket are hot destinations in the summer. And the overflow lots are far from the ferries

So time to take my CDL over to the Steamship authority and see if I can snag a shuttle bus gig part-time.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber

Bus driving was going ok, but they were, how can I put this delicately? ......optimistic...about the amount of work they'd have for me this summer.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber

Of course, now I have four days off. *sigh*. I need another job..


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber

Last shift of the weekend. Thank the gods. 40 hours in three days just wears on you

Hi. Brand new to the game, have been reading the core rule book and d20pfsrd over the weekend, I'm interested to join. What do I do?

Hi batpony. Firstly, let me welcome you to Pathfinder. It is a wonderful game, and this messageboard is a great place to learn the system and make new friends. I am a big fan of Play by Post, and I applaud your interest.

I can put you on the alternate list, but it seems like you are just starting out with the game system. This particular PbP game is based on an old Ad&D campaign from 20 years ago, which has a very complex backstory. While I am happy to put you on the list, I would advise you to look through the recruiting threads for a few simpler games as well. I don't want to confuse and discourage you while you are trying to learn the game with a lot of complexity that has little to do with modern Pathfinder. This isn't a very good 'starter' game.

If you are compiling a list of alternates, I'd love to be added to that list. I have plenty of Planescape background - I used to run the Planewalker.com website when it was WotC's "Official Planescape Fan Site" and even had a Dragon mag article published (the one on modrons).

I have plenty of character ideas, so could fit in anything. If it could work with the concept you have, I'd love to try updating the modron PC race from that article (or other sources) to PF and give it a try with a confused rogue modron running with some orphans trying to find its place in the scheme of things. If not, like I said, I have plenty of other ideas and am partial to the planetouched races or powered-down gith (-zerai or -yanki).

Have fun! Sounds like a cool campaign!

Ken! Dude I am a big fan of your work! I used your article to construct my first PbP character on this site O.L.L.I

I am a huge Modron fan.

I will put you on the alternate list for sure :).

So, judging from that last fight this module is going to be pretty evil. So, I have determined we should adjust HP totals. Everyone take double max HP for 1st level. After that we will roll organically, but we almost had a TPK from a single god bomb. If he had gotten another off your heads would be sitting on pikes now.

At the moment waiting Theta. If you want to start thumb nailing up a character that's fine too

On the edge of the Great Bazaar. Check the gameplay thread for a brief description

You can also be a long term resident of the St Cuthbert's Lodge for the Lost I set up for one of the starting points

It's going ok. Someone gave me access to 10 Cloverfield Ln. Good movie so far.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber

I watched the first one. It wasn't terrible. I just have no urge to continue with it as the series was a particular favorite of my ex-wife. Just like I'll probably never watch True Blood again.

Closing in on 2nd half of my 16 hours...

Somethings I'd like the players to do for me:

  • A background story
  • Come up with thumbnail sketches of five friends/allies/contacts
  • Also do five enemies/rivals
  • long-term character goals
  • A list of items you'd like your character to eventually obtain
  • Any motivations/hopes/fears for the character
  • Does the character have family? Are they close? Still alive?

I'll tell you though. Some of these tourists. I mean, I go on vacation. I play the tourist. I would never come to someone's home and piss and sh!t all over it like it was nothing while treating the residents like NPC automatons. Guess what? People DO live on Cape Cod. It's more than a beach and a restaurant. Act civilized.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber

Ok. That actually makes a lot of sense for this type of game. Let's use that system.

Thanks man. Yeah it was hard getting up after 5ish hours and coming back here. I think the toughest thing is working night to day shift. The day shift is inherently busy, since everyone is here, so you are tired from already working eight hours and all of a sudden you are running about doing this and that for everyone who just got to work
That does suck. But at least you know the job and you do not have to think too much there. Small comfort. But it is something. Right?

True. And if it is quiet I have down time. It's not like a manual labor job where I'm worked constantly. I just have to hope that the drunken crazies tourists stay out of trouble tonight.

Estivan is not inherently trustworthy. His and your interests might coincide, but never fool yourself that he will go against his own interests in the name of friendship or loyalty. He's not evil, just ... Amoral.

Also, Patrick, I think you missed my last question, Background Skills? Yes or no?

If you could clarify? Background as in profession? Or are we talking something else?

Second 16-hour shift on tap.

Are there mechanical benefits for different ranks in factions? Can our characters start as namers in a faction? Can we rise through the ranks in a manner that would change canon because a recognized character holds a position?

You will not start in a faction. Through gaming you can attempt to join a faction. There are some 3E faction benefits, I'd have to take a look at my Dragon mag back issues. I think there was an article there. Cannon isn't concrete. If somehow you become a factotum or higher, then we let history unfold. The Faction War is not inevitable

I will put you on the alternate list Almagafor. Always good to have a trig cutter in the background

Wow... This is awkward.

I forgot to mention that I have ZERO experience playing Pathfinder. I hope this is okay?

It's not a problem. We are starting this game at Rock-bottom 1st level no frills so you can learn the game. I will mention you are on the possible list still. You are in line for a slot, but it's not 100%. I just wanted to make sure there were no miscommunications:)

Dang!! I would love a chance to play Planescape. It is simply the best setting ever, but that is only my opinion of course :D

Is there still room/time for a concept submission?

I'll tell you what. I'll need a few names for an alternates list to call up if we get a lot of drop outs. Interested? You can make a concept if you wish.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber

Ok, so as of now we have:

Edward
Mothman
Rknop
Drogoney
Celestial Healer
Flash
Tanner

Possible-given spot if wanted
Woran

On the list for a possible spot
Theta Thief
Imortalmage

Ok. With Imortalmage I think I'm going to close recruiting for now. I haven't heard from Woran, but if I put everyone in, then I'd be pushing the limits. I'll give Woran until the end of the weekend to reply, then we'll see from there
