That sounds awesome GM, I know I can procrastinate those big important posts too, sometimes you've just gotta be in the right mood for it, but I'm still keen and looking forward to this :)


Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Hooray! :)


Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

hmm is magma a physical blast? I'm not on my home computer at the moment so can't check :p but yes, rather an amusing visual


Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Alright, so I guess I'll be taking the bludgeoneer feat is what I'm getting from this discussion? :p Will try and post the character later today, it's mostly done :) just need to change from pyrokinesis to geokinesis (which was my prefered element anyway, just... seems a bit janky thematically when I've taken Pyromaniac trait and flame dancer bard archetype. Oh well, I'll take fire at 7th level and then he can punch people with magma! :p) and figure out how to format the character sheet.


yeah it's cool :) just wanting to make sure it's clear.

Alright, so I roll my defense check, and if their attack roll is greater then my own, I need to make a toughness check?

uhh no, they roll their attack against your parry defense (which is equal to 10+parry) much like AC in D&D, but then if they hit rather than them rolling damage you roll a toughness check against a DC based on the attack.

Summary:
They attack you, if they hit you roll to resist the damage.
Scaley rolled a 16, against your Parry of 10+13=23 which means he missed.
If he had gotten 23 or higher, you would have rolled 1d20+7 (your toughness) and had to beat a 28 (so you only could have made the save on a nat 20)

Also Mick, Thoughform didn't say to use non-lethal tactics, he just is using them himself :p He's old-fashioned that way


Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

awwww, maaaaaaaan :s Well grats to those three, and if you need another character further on down the road then keep me in mind.

@Peanuts: Search harder! Any blast that deals bludgeoning can be modified by Bludgeoner feat. However, Elemental Ascetic ADDS blast damage to unarmed strikes, which can be nonlethal without penalty—thus, you can make your blasts nonlethal without penalty or any investment.

Oh really? I'd assumed that it would add say the fire blast as fire damage. Fair point on bludgeoneer though, might have to grab that, hmm...

Still wouldn't mind an opinion from CaveToad on the matter though.


Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Hmmm, is CaveToad open to homebrewing stuff at all? Looking to make my kineticist (elemental ascetic)/brawler (steel-breaker)/bard (flame dancer, songhealer) into a non-lethal master, but there doesn't seem to be any way to make the kineticist's blasts non-lethal. In a world with Non-Lethal spell metamagic this seems like an oversight. Was thinking I could homebrew it as a substance infusion perhaps?

Oh, and the new table if it happens, will that start at level 1 or level 3? Been building for level 3 but can delevel if necessary.

Also, also: Is there some sort of template for how to arrange the character sheet for these characters?


Attacks in this game are d20+attack roll vs. 10+parry (melee) or 10+dodge (ranged). if the roll is equal or greater than the target's defense, then they are hit, and have to resist the attack.

The resistance roll is d20+toughness vs. 15+attack effect rating (or 10+effect rating if it's an affliction), which is apparently 28 in this case. If you equal or beat that with your toughness roll then great, you shrug off the attack, otherwise you take a bruise, and possibly more if you roll really badly (a bruise is -1 to future toughness rolls).

We're waiting for the GM/Players to decide who made it into the game, you're past the deadline unfortunately.

Argh! *tugs at his hair*


yeah I'd guess so


Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

d'oh! More waiting :s *twiddles his thumbs*

Slight update to Yaren, after talking to the DM he suggested my necromancy focus was a little to similar to oneof the existing players, so I've changed his feets and spells to make him more of a summoner cleric instead :) Everything else remains the same, altered his personality slightly too. Posting it all here for ease of reference.

Having considered the theme of the campaign I see Wyrm's point about him potentially backstabbing the party. To be honest he probably wouldn't directly have done that anyway, but lets just say he may struggle at times if faced with people from his past (there's a few named NPCs in his background the Aku could throw at him which would do so), or particularly heinous acts (harming children particularly). I think that's an interesting part of his personality as a reluctant bad guy that I don't want to get rid of it entirely, but I'll try to make sure it doesn't cause toooo much drama. That's assuming it comes up at all of course, otherwise he'll just be a mopey, drunken bastard who grumbles a lot :p

Background etc.:
Born the middle child of a successful merchant family Yaren travelled frequently in his youth seeing much of Talingarde and the Lands of the Linnorm Kings across the sea as his father (Jarrod) pursued his business interests. Though he was treated to the same education and had the same exposure to the family business as his elder brother (Farley) and sister (Theresa) he never quite took to it as they did. He was always much more fascinated by the variety of people he met on the travels, even to the extent that he was the first of the children to learn the tongue of the native people of the Linnorm Kingdoms.

The exciting travels of his youth came to an end when he was approaching manhood (12-13) however when his mother (Gayle) became gravely ill. His father applied his not inconsiderable wealth in donations to the church and all number of supposed remedies from healers in the region and abroad but after 18 months despite all of their best efforts she passed away.

The death of Gayle affected them all differently; Jarrod threw himself into his work and into grooming the then 16 year old Farley to eventually take over the business from him. Theresa’s flirtation with rebellious behavior was swiftly put to an end with an arranged marriage to slightly older gentlemen who was showing promise within the kings court. Yaren meanwhile was perhaps most deeply affected having spent much time at his mother’s bedside witnessing the ministrations of the priests. With his busy father’s permission he was soon welcomed into the bosom of the Mitran church as a novice under Father Walter Reid, one of the priests who had helped care for his mother, and a member of the blessed Order of St. Macarius.

During his time as first a Novice and then an initiate with the monks life went on for his family; his father remarried a few years after Gayle’s death and Yaren was able to go visit and meet his step-mother Mirabelle when she gave birth to fraternal twins whom they named Leilani and Ransden.

As nice as it was to be with his family again he didn’t linger at the estate near Daveryn; the church was his life now and Father Reid was confident that Yaren would soon be chosen to join the ranks of the clergy himself.

A little more than a year later, with Yaren in his 23rd year he was ordained by the Blessed Father Raulyn Fallenwood, and given leave to serve in the northern borderlands where he felt his talents could be put to the best use. This indeed proved to be the case as he was present for several clashes involving the savage northern bugbears providing vital aid to fallen soldiers, though he found his beliefs challenged when faced with the ferocity of the creatures and there were few occasions when he bothered to tend to the monsters.

Though a dangerous life it was a fulfilling one for him. Eventually earning a position in one of the watch wall castles he was content to care for the brave men and women who lived there, sheltering the lands to the south with the honor and bravery.

Such was not to last however when he accompanied a patrol led by the son of the castle’s commander. The patrol rode into an ambush by the bugbears and nearly half of it’s number was slain. It was only when he took up one of the fallen soldier’s weapons and struck a distracting blow against the leader of the ambushing forces locked in combat with the commander’s son that the assault was thwarted. Yaren did what he could for the fallen soldiers, and when the patrol returned bloody and bruised Yaren was hailed as a hero. Embarrassed by the acclaim and uncertain about the line he had crossed in joining the fight he did his best to play down his part, but the grateful commander wouldn’t hear it after the glowing report from his son, throwing a feast in Yaren’s honor.

Eventually the event moved into the past and Yaren was just pleased to get back to his normal duties until a few months later word was received from the south. Word it seemed had reached his superiors in the order and he was requested to return to the Monastery of St. Macarius. With some trepidation he complied, packing his belongings and riding south with an anxious knot of nerves in his belly.

Such anxiety proved to be unfounded as when he reached the monastery he found Father Reid (who had reached the station of high priest during Yaren’s absence) to be waiting for him. He had a chance to talk to Father Reid before he was to meet with one of his superiors in the order. Father Reid was able to settle his nerves that while they were a peaceful order dedicated to healing he was not to be punished for his actions but that it was a matter that needed to be discussed. In the end the trip proved to be slightly enlightening and at least helped to put his mind at ease. Without further incidence he return to his position on the wall and settled back into his life there. For a little while at least.

It seemed the consequences of the one hasty action would continue to haunt him as unknown to him dark forces were moving along the watch wall and they too had heard of his heroism and subsequent visit to the south. Seeing an opportunity for advancement one of Asmodeus’ agents struck, managing to slip a little something extra into Yaren’s dinner one night…

He awoke in a pitch-black chamber to pain and an urgent voice from the dark, promising relief if Yaren but answered a few questions. Needless to say the faithful priest would not yield to such coercion, at least… not at first. Yaren was given little relief, kept chained in a cold stone room, tended to just enough to keep him alive, and extensively tortured. He had no clue how long he hung there in the dark, weeks certainly, possibly months as his patient captor went to work breaking his will. His prayers to Mitra for rescue and relief went unanswered and after his first few attempts to magic his way free of the chamber failed utterly he doubted he could summon the concentration necessary to form the spell if he tried. Slowly despair overwhelmed him, and one dark night he could take it no longer.

Relief was slow in coming as it seemed his answers that he had spoken only to one of the bishops serving at the monastery did not please his captor. It was at least another week before his assailant finally seemed to accept that Yaren knew nothing about the mysterious leader of the Monastery.

He knew somewhat was wrong when the frustration of his captor evaporated and he began to move with purpose once more. Not only did the daily sessions of torment stop but the room was lit with torches and in their dim light Yaren got his first glimpse of the person who had abducted him. He was astounded to find a slim women moving about in the torchlight; he almost thought it must be someone else but as the woman with her slightly pointed ears began to wash the old blood and gore from his body and whisper ‘soothing’ words to him he recognized the same voice that had been questioning him all these weeks. His dread only grew as she began to trace intricate shapes over his abused form and the stone floor of the chamber beneath him. His gaze shuddered away from his own form as he refused to see what had been done to him, but even so he recognized the infernal runes and sigils he had read about in his history books.

It was then he plead for death, but not even that was granted to him as the evil woman finished her preparations. The room was now lit by dark, flickering candles, with arcane shapes covering and surrounding Yaren. He closed his eyes as she began to chant, but he couldn’t block his ears to the infernal words of the ritual. Pain wracked his body as her chant rose and a sense of… wrong seemed to be growing deep within his chest. He cried out as something seemed to slash at his chest, and blessed unconsciousness overtook him as he felt something move within him.

This must be death. That was his first thought when he awoke next. The pain was gone, it was astonishing the difference; he could breathe deeply without the ache of poorly healed ribs; his arms, so long chained above his head that they had lost all sensation were his once more. But no… this was not the river of souls, he was in a room not too different to the one he had spent so long in, and witnessed only recently. He was granted a reprieve from the Raven Queen’s judgment; he shuddered to think how he would stand before her after his fall the last few weeks, he had plead for his tormenter to stop, he was not proud of the things he had said…

Things moved fast then as he heard movement in the room. A voice, high pitched but demanding spoke to him and as he tried to rise to face this new person he discovered that though his body was free, he was not without bonds… The figure proved to be an imp, one of the lesser of the devils, and yet when this imp spoke he was forced to obey. Sleeg was gleeful to inform Yaren of their new arrangement; Shearah, his captor had it seemed, made a deal with infernal forces. She had (through intermediaries of course) contacted one of the archdevils of hell offering him a tether to the mortal realm and a useful, if unwilling servant. “That’s you.” Sleeg had told him with a grin in case he hadn’t figured it out yet.

Sleeg was there as Belial’s representative to take charge of Yaren and put him to work furthering the terrible archdukes plan’s. Yaren had scowled, but despite how he struggled he found he could not rise from his knees where the imp had commanded him. Yaren could only let out a sob and collapse as Sleeg laughed.

That was over a year ago now, not that Yaren paid much attention to the passage of time. Though all signs of Shearah’s physical torment were gone, his ‘new’ body was only the first step in the continuance of his mental torment. Gone was his… at least marginally attractive form. Oh true his face was the same… apart from the double pair of horns rising from his skull, the star-like pupils and the grey hue to his skin. The long barbed tail and hairy ankles (though thankfully he still had all his toes rather than hooves) just completed the image. Even if he could somehow escape from Sleeg’s watchful gaze (and he couldn’t even tell when the thing was around) he couldn’t go back to the church looking like this. After what he’d been forced to do in the time since his dark rebirth he almost wanted to though, just so that they could free him from his living torment… of course then would begin his eternal torment, he was certainly bound for hell now, to become the Belial’s plaything, or whichever of his servant had made the actual deal. Damned if he did, and damned If he didn’t, quite literally so. So Yaren continued to slog along falling into the arms of oblivion whenever he got the chance; after all his fate couldn’t get much worse from enjoying what few pleasures were available to him could they?

A less floury summary of events is that Yaren was a faithful Cleric of Mitra until an agent of Asmodeus named Shearah captured him hoping to learn some of the secrets of the order of st macarius, and when that proved to be a dead end she decided to hock his soul to the infernal forces for a promotion. He now serves Asmodeus somewhat faithfully as he’s given up hope on ever freeing himself and somehow getting redemption. When he does have any qualms Sleeg, his Imp familiar is there to keep him in line :p

Personality: Dour and morose Yaren is unhappy with his current lot in life, bound to the will of a dark entity and his minute puppet master. As such he attempts to drown his sorrows in the pleasures of the flesh whenever given the chance. When cajoled into action he performs his role with sullen grace, often merely a vessel for the minions of his 'master' to escape briefly onto this plane than an active participant, though he will support his 'allies' with buffing spells and the occasional assault against their foes. He can occasionally be coaxed into showing some genuine interest if faced with a problem in his wheelhouse however and since developing quite the silver tongue as a necessity of survival he has grown to take a pervous joy in bringing others down to his level. Misery loves company after all.

Selected by the players huh? Interesting, I guess that is what normally happens when you're selecting replacements isn't it. Alright I'll come up with a little spiel when I get home tonight. You wouldn't have a problem with a summoning focused caster though? That would probably be what I rework him as if I change out his necromancy focus feats.


Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

oooh, special plans eh? Awesome.


Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

eeee, exciting!

@DM: Given any thought the my questions in the last PM? If you're busy just say so and I'll wait :p


Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

What's VMC stand for by the way? Something Multi Class?

Yeah I thought the kinetic fist seemed strong. you can get the composite blast if you're willing to take some burn even without mythic (the reason I was looking at barbarian for that d12 hit dice).

Anyway, I think I've settled on Kineticist(Elemental Ascetic)/Brawler(Steel-Breaker)/Bard(Flame Dancer, Songhealer). Didn't really want to get rid of either Rogue or Brawler, but the bard archetypes fit better in with the theme/idea than any of the other classes with a d10 hit dice, so Rogue ended up going. Will have to cheese dip Rogue instead of Ranger I guess, or... we'll see.

As to bodyguard etc. I haven't even thought about feats yet :p I'll keep that in mind though.

Might end up changing his race now he's going to be going fire primary rather than earth... hm.

Anyway, thanks for the help.I should probably get to bed now but I've made some decent progress at least :p

EDIT: Hehehe, Ogre with Rock Throwing. Fastball special anyone?


Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

well, I was picturing the Kineticist as sort of non martial... I k now I took the Ascetic archetype but they can still do some spell-like things with their infusions and some other wacky stuff. I was intitially going to throw in a divine spellcasting class but then I checked out the Kineticist and that seemed to fit the spellcasting bill instead.

Hmm, I'll check out Ghoran and Sandman Bard, they may be able to work with the concept that's been bubbling away in my head (basically a big cuddly melee brute :p bit dim but very friendly and cheerful unless someone messes with his friends).

EDIT: No, I don't think sandman or inquisitor work. Will look at Druid or Oracle and see if I could fit them in.


Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

mmm, I think I'll go with Brawler anyway, even with doubling up on flurry they have some very nice abilities :) Will is an issue but i like how those three classes fit together already. Hmmm... I could just wait until Twin Mind becomes available and make sure I get Will saves there :p


Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

hmm cool. I'm currently looking at a Rogue/Kineticist(Elemental Ascetic)/Something Martial(Brawler?) Bugbear :p haven't quite decided on how the stats will go yet, still reading stuff


Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Hmm, so the restriction on no psionics yet, does that apply to the occult adventures classes as well or just the dreamscarred press stuff? Apologies if that's been answered, a few too many posts to check through :p

*does a lot of reading* Wow. Yaren Heartgaze is a good guy. I mean, he's a very reluctant bad guy; if someone were to say 'I can save you, and this is how', I'm pretty sure he'd turn on us in a hearbeat. (Not, note, that anyone should be able to sell someone else's soul, but that's not up to me; that's up to the GM.)

lol, yeah it ended up fairly long. I don't normally write that much for backgrounds, but every now and then the inspiration strikes and they get away from me :p

As far as selling someone else's soul... yeah you're probably right. Maybe he did agree to it and just didn't realize? He undoubtedly said a lot of things he doesn't recall towards the end after being tortured for so long.

As to turning on you guys, I'd doubt he'd believe anyone if they did say they could save him, and I always have Sleeg there as the one holding his leesh to get him back under control if needed. I think it'll be fun for him to have the potential to stab everyone in the back though, don't you? :p

    DM Comments:
    Well, I liked the background. I was hoping to see the other aspects of it (Booze, drugs, whores and such) to keep Yaren in line, as you described in the PM, but I can see that writing something like that would hardly be indicated in the forums (I’ll just pretend there’s booze, drugs and other means of control). :D

    About the crunch: Seems good, and I didn’t find anything out of order.

    Suggestion: Yaren and Nahia (the witch in the party) will have a significant overlap in roles, being both focused in control of battlefield and debuffs. Maybe you could expand your options in combat. That way, when debuffs isn’t applicable (hey, I’m did you see that colossal adamantine golem??), you could help with something else besides healing.

  • Reply:
    Heh, yeah I figured I should keep it vague, but the line "So Yaren continued to slog along falling into the arms of oblivion whenever he got the chance; after all his fate couldn’t get much worse from enjoying what few pleasures were available to him could they?" was meant to refer to the drugs and whatnot.

    Hmm, a fair point about the overlap, and I hadn't thought about constructs. He does have a few spells that would work in those circumstances, but not many. The good thing about Clerics at least is they can always change up their spells if they've got some foreknowledge, so willing to change if necessary, take some more buff spells instead of all debuff.


    Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

    So I could for instance turn that into 18(+1), 18(+1), 16, 16(+3), 14(+1), 14(+4) or similar. Fair enough about the spots being filled. I'll just slowly work on this then and see what I come up with :)


    Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

    This seems completely ridiculous. Luckily that's what I like :p Don't know if I'm too late but this will be a fun character to make anyway :p

    5d6 ⇒ (3, 1, 1, 6, 4) = 15 = 13
    5d6 ⇒ (2, 4, 6, 3, 3) = 18 = 13
    5d6 ⇒ (6, 6, 5, 3, 4) = 24 = 17
    5d6 ⇒ (2, 6, 5, 5, 6) = 24 = 17
    5d6 ⇒ (2, 2, 4, 4, 1) = 13 = 10
    5d6 ⇒ (5, 1, 5, 6, 5) = 22 = 16

    So 17, 17, 16, 13, 13, 10 and I can add another 10 points one to one? Damn that's nuts. Anyway, should probably get back to reading the rules

    @Peanuts:

    Your cleric ability score seems off: I count 24 point-buy and you might have forgotten the additional status raise for level 4.

    Trait: Traditionalist isn’t from the allowed sources. I don’t think this is a deal breaker, so let’s put this on hold for now.

    Ahh my bad, I didn't think to check where my traits were from, just wanted to get knowledge local as a class skill and that one seemed to fit best with the background I'd come up with :)

    As to the ability scores here is the breakdown:
    Str = Base 8, -2pb
    Dex = Base 13, 3pb
    Con = Base 12 +2 racial, 2pb
    Int = Base 12, 2pb
    Wis = Base 17 +2 racial, +1 lvl 4, 13pb
    Cha = Base 15 -2 racial, 7pb
    Total: -2+3+2+2+13+7=25

    In case you weren't aware I'm using the Devil-Spawn tiefling heritage which could be why your calculations were different?

    Anyway, here is the character again with a full (and somewhat long) background included :) Hope everything passes muster this time ^_^

    Just a heads up but the below may be a bit on the more mature side. I tried not to be too specific but it does contain references to torture and other mature themes. Let me know if I'll need to tone things back even further though, don't want to make anyone uncomfortable.

    Background/Motivation etc.:
    Born the middle child of a successful merchant family Yaren travelled frequently in his youth seeing much of Talingarde and the Lands of the Linnorm Kings across the sea as his father (Jarrod) pursued his business interests. Though he was treated to the same education and had the same exposure to the family business as his elder brother (Farley) and sister (Theresa) he never quite took to it as they did. He was always much more fascinated by the variety of people he met on the travels, even to the extent that he was the first of the children to learn the tongue of the native people of the Linnorm Kingdoms.

    The exciting travels of his youth came to an end when he was approaching manhood (12-13) however when his mother (Gayle) became gravely ill. His father applied his not inconsiderable wealth in donations to the church and all number of supposed remedies from healers in the region and abroad but after 18 months despite all of their best efforts she passed away.

    The death of Gayle affected them all differently; Jarrod threw himself into his work and into grooming the then 16 year old Farley to eventually take over the business from him. Theresa’s flirtation with rebellious behavior was swiftly put to an end with an arranged marriage to slightly older gentlemen who was showing promise within the kings court. Yaren meanwhile was perhaps most deeply affected having spent much time at his mother’s bedside witnessing the ministrations of the priests. With his busy father’s permission he was soon welcomed into the bosom of the Mitran church as a novice under Father Walter Reid, one of the priests who had helped care for his mother, and a member of the blessed Order of St. Macarius.

    During his time as first a Novice and then an initiate with the monks life went on for his family; his father remarried a few years after Gayle’s death and Yaren was able to go visit and meet his step-mother Mirabelle when she gave birth to fraternal twins whom they named Leilani and Ransden.

    As nice as it was to be with his family again he didn’t linger at the estate near Daveryn; the church was his life now and Father Reid was confident that Yaren would soon be chosen to join the ranks of the clergy himself.

    A little more than a year later, with Yaren in his 23rd year he was ordained by the Blessed Father Raulyn Fallenwood, and given leave to serve in the northern borderlands where he felt his talents could be put to the best use. This indeed proved to be the case as he was present for several clashes involving the savage northern bugbears providing vital aid to fallen soldiers, though he found his beliefs challenged when faced with the ferocity of the creatures and there were few occasions when he bothered to tend to the monsters.

    Though a dangerous life it was a fulfilling one for him. Eventually earning a position in one of the watch wall castles he was content to care for the brave men and women who lived there, sheltering the lands to the south with the honor and bravery.

    Such was not to last however when he accompanied a patrol led by the son of the castle’s commander. The patrol rode into an ambush by the bugbears and nearly half of it’s number was slain. It was only when he took up one of the fallen soldier’s weapons and struck a distracting blow against the leader of the ambushing forces locked in combat with the commander’s son that the assault was thwarted. Yaren did what he could for the fallen soldiers, and when the patrol returned bloody and bruised Yaren was hailed as a hero. Embarrassed by the acclaim and uncertain about the line he had crossed in joining the fight he did his best to play down his part, but the grateful commander wouldn’t hear it after the glowing report from his son, throwing a feast in Yaren’s honor.

    Eventually the event moved into the past and Yaren was just pleased to get back to his normal duties until a few months later word was received from the south. Word it seemed had reached his superiors in the order and he was requested to return to the Monastery of St. Macarius. With some trepidation he complied, packing his belongings and riding south with an anxious knot of nerves in his belly.

    Such anxiety proved to be unfounded as when he reached the monastery he found Father Reid (who had reached the station of high priest during Yaren’s absence) to be waiting for him. He had a chance to talk to Father Reid before he was to meet with one of his superiors in the order. Father Reid was able to settle his nerves that while they were a peaceful order dedicated to healing he was not to be punished for his actions but that it was a matter that needed to be discussed. In the end the trip proved to be slightly enlightening and at least helped to put his mind at ease. Without further incidence he return to his position on the wall and settled back into his life there. For a little while at least.

    It seemed the consequences of the one hasty action would continue to haunt him as unknown to him dark forces were moving along the watch wall and they too had heard of his heroism and subsequent visit to the south. Seeing an opportunity for advancement one of Asmodeus’ agents struck, managing to slip a little something extra into Yaren’s dinner one night…

    He awoke in a pitch-black chamber to pain and an urgent voice from the dark, promising relief if Yaren but answered a few questions. Needless to say the faithful priest would not yield to such coercion, at least… not at first. Yaren was given little relief, kept chained in a cold stone room, tended to just enough to keep him alive, and extensively tortured. He had no clue how long he hung there in the dark, weeks certainly, possibly months as his patient captor went to work breaking his will. His prayers to Mitra for rescue and relief went unanswered and after his first few attempts to magic his way free of the chamber failed utterly he doubted he could summon the concentration necessary to form the spell if he tried. Slowly despair overwhelmed him, and one dark night he could take it no longer.

    Relief was slow in coming as it seemed his answers that he had spoken only to one of the bishops serving at the monastery did not please his captor. It was at least another week before his assailant finally seemed to accept that Yaren knew nothing about the mysterious leader of the Monastery.

    He knew somewhat was wrong when the frustration of his captor evaporated and he began to move with purpose once more. Not only did the daily sessions of torment stop but the room was lit with torches and in their dim light Yaren got his first glimpse of the person who had abducted him. He was astounded to find a slim women moving about in the torchlight; he almost thought it must be someone else but as the woman with her slightly pointed ears began to wash the old blood and gore from his body and whisper ‘soothing’ words to him he recognized the same voice that had been questioning him all these weeks. His dread only grew as she began to trace intricate shapes over his abused form and the stone floor of the chamber beneath him. His gaze shuddered away from his own form as he refused to see what had been done to him, but even so he recognized the infernal runes and sigils he had read about in his history books.

    It was then he plead for death, but not even that was granted to him as the evil woman finished her preparations. The room was now lit by dark, flickering candles, with arcane shapes covering and surrounding Yaren. He closed his eyes as she began to chant, but he couldn’t block his ears to the infernal words of the ritual. Pain wracked his body as her chant rose and a sense of… wrong seemed to be growing deep within his chest. He cried out as something seemed to slash at his chest, and blessed unconsciousness overtook him as he felt something move within him.

    This must be death. That was his first thought when he awoke next. The pain was gone, it was astonishing the difference; he could breathe deeply without the ache of poorly healed ribs; his arms, so long chained above his head that they had lost all sensation were his once more. But no… this was not the river of souls, he was in a room not too different to the one he had spent so long in, and witnessed only recently. He was granted a reprieve from the Raven Queen’s judgment; he shuddered to think how he would stand before her after his fall the last few weeks, he had plead for his tormenter to stop, he was not proud of the things he had said…

    Things moved fast then as he heard movement in the room. A voice, high pitched but demanding spoke to him and as he tried to rise to face this new person he discovered that though his body was free, he was not without bonds… The figure proved to be an imp, one of the lesser of the devils, and yet when this imp spoke he was forced to obey. Sleeg was gleeful to inform Yaren of their new arrangement; Shearah, his captor had it seemed, made a deal with infernal forces. She had (through intermediaries of course) contacted one of the archdevils of hell offering him a tether to the mortal realm and a useful, if unwilling servant. “That’s you.” Sleeg had told him with a grin in case he hadn’t figured it out yet.

    Sleeg was there as Belial’s representative to take charge of Yaren and put him to work furthering the terrible archdukes plan’s. Yaren had scowled, but despite how he struggled he found he could not rise from his knees where the imp had commanded him. Yaren could only let out a sob and collapse as Sleeg laughed.

    That was over a year ago now, not that Yaren paid much attention to the passage of time. Though all signs of Shearah’s physical torment were gone, his ‘new’ body was only the first step in the continuance of his mental torment. Gone was his… at least marginally attractive form. Oh true his face was the same… apart from the double pair of horns rising from his skull, the star-like pupils and the grey hue to his skin. The long barbed tail and hairy ankles (though thankfully he still had all his toes rather than hooves) just completed the image. Even if he could somehow escape from Sleeg’s watchful gaze (and he couldn’t even tell when the thing was around) he couldn’t go back to the church looking like this. After what he’d been forced to do in the time since his dark rebirth he almost wanted to though, just so that they could free him from his living torment… of course then would begin his eternal torment, he was certainly bound for hell now, to become the Belial’s plaything, or whichever of his servant had made the actual deal. Damned if he did, and damned If he didn’t, quite literally so. So Yaren continued to slog along falling into the arms of oblivion whenever he got the chance; after all his fate couldn’t get much worse from enjoying what few pleasures were available to him could they?

    A less floury summary of events is that Yaren was a faithful Cleric of Mitra until an agent of Asmodeus named Shearah captured him hoping to learn some of the secrets of the order of st macarius, and when that proved to be a dead end she decided to hock his soul to the infernal forces for a promotion. He now serves Asmodeus somewhat faithfully as he’s given up hope on ever freeing himself and somehow getting redemption. When he does have any qualms Sleeg, his Imp familiar is there to keep him in line :p

    Personality: Dour and morose Yaren is unhappy with his current lot in life bound to the will of a dark entity and his minute puppet master. As such he attempts to drown his sorrows in the pleasures of the flesh whenever given the chance. When cajoled into action he performs his role with sullen grace, preferring to debilitate his foes with crippling magic to leave them at the mercy of his 'allies' than wade into battle or employ more direct magics. He can occasionally be coaxed into showing some genuine interest if faced with a problem in his wheelhouse however and since developing quite the silver tongue as a necessity of survival he has grown to take a pervous joy in bringing others down to his level. Misery loves company after all.

    hmmhmm, this game sounds interesting. Thinking maybe some kind of academic type adventurer with a focus on constructs. Maybe even an intelligent construct companion (the Beast of Lepidstadt from the Carrion Crown AP was what came to mind when I started thinking about that). Maybe even a mystic theurge if we're going to be at this high a level. Hmm...

    I couldn’t figure this out on my own: Why your cleric has access to three different domains?

    Uhh, I think that's just some weirdness from Herolabs since Devil is a subdomain of both the Law and Evil domains. To be clear my two domains are the Lust subdomain and the Devil (Evil) subdomain (the one that gives Hell's Corruption and Scythe of Evil as it's powers).

    okay forget the questions in my last post, decided to go with a Fiendish Vessel Cleric which solves the healing issue, and makes the druid questions irrelevant. Will PM you to discuss some background stuff.


    Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

    mmm fair enough. I just knew there was something about how to become a lich in this campaign :)

    Currently focussing on a divine character of some sort and figured I may as well ask, is there a houserule that allows an evil character to choose to channel to heal and/or spontaneously cast cure spells? Healing as an evil character has always been tricky (both thematically and mechanically).

    Currently I'm thinking either a fallen cleric who was tortured and brainwashed to the dark side (Possibly by thorn or one of his minions), or that dark druid. If I went the druid route would it be possible to become a Siabrae (from The Worldwound, page 58) further down the line? It's tied to the worldwound thematically, but it seems to be somewhat of a Druid lich equivalent.

    Will keep working on my ideas but,you may be able to tell that I like to play weird characters. In the other WotW game I played in the DM actually let me play a minor devil :p (a host devil or Gaav)

    Not that I was intending to go for it, but does that apply to the lich path too?


    Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

    Eeeeeenteresting. I was in a WotW campaign a few years back on here that unfortunately fell apart at around this point in the campaign (maybe a little earlier). I'm tempted to try my hand at a charmingly evil bard of some sort... or maybe an evil druid... let me see what I can find in the way of archetypes.

    Oh and his stats:
    Focus: Charisma
    Foible: Strength

    Wis: 1d10 + 7 ⇒ (6) + 7 = 13
    Total of 23 pb, so will go with the 25pb option instead :p stupid 9s...

    Heh, looks like we had similar thoughts. I'm about to start working on a warpriest who worships the great dragons in the sky! Clearly only dragons are smart and awesome enough to have created all this wonderful technology that came from the heavens. As the mighty dragon's descendants it is our right as his chosen people to reclaim these holy artifacts :D

    @Draco Voodoo: Would you allow me to take the Iron Priest archetype from the Technology Guide as a Warpriest?

    Hmm, consider me interested. Just need to come up with a character concept.


    Heh, fair enough JK :p


    Docks:
    How many minds?

    This way Masumi! he says into her mind, starting to move off before remembering he wasn't projecting his image at the moment. He frowns, wondering if he should just do so, but he felt that would be detrimental in this situation.

    <Make it so only she can see.>

    What? Simon 'stares' at where he thought of her being, before mentally gaspingin astonishment as she once again shows him how limited his own mastery of their abilities were. Though unnecessary in this situation a glowing orb of light appears, overlaying Thoughtform's form to Masumi's eyeless sight, and hers only as he begins to move towards the occupied building.

    AS he does so he shifts his focus to the mind that felt... different, much as Mick's differed from the rest of the team; or... several or the others come to think about it. They were an odd lot Phantom had assembled.
    He focuses his mind in on that strange individual and attempts to pierce his thoughts.

    Mental Arsenal: Mental Illusions 1 (6pts), Mind Reading 7 (28pts)

    Then he will keep hitting him with Mind Reading until he either reacts or he fails to make a save :p DC 17


    yeees, I'm guessing our GM is a little busy.


    1 person marked this as a favorite.

    Nice! Grats Mick :)


    Well, I'm from Australia, so my garaunteed active time is like... early morning for you guys. That said I normally am able to post earlier but uh... timezones man, they're confusing.

    I'll go build an alias for Richie now :) He does wander a bit but I think he'd stick to the NW of the states unless he had a specific task in mind elsewhere, or knew about someone in need.


    cool :) as long as things keep trundling along


    Yeah I'd like to move along if possible. The only thing that kills games quicker than players dropping out is waiting too long to move on after it happens :p

    Yay! I think I'm gonna give him fine pale green scales over ~3/4s of his body, a spikey head-crest and a lizard tongue :)

    So I present, Richie Jean

    Special Abilities:
    • Lyin' Eyes (Minor): Lies just don’t come naturally to this brainer That sounds good,but often causes problems when dealing with more nefarious types Subtract 4 from any Persuasion rolls where lies—even little white ones—must be told
    •All Thumbs: -2 Repair; Break devices on skill die roll of 1
    •Heroic: Never says no to a person in need
    •Arcane Background (Doomsayer)

    Backlash: Should a Doomsayer roll a 1 on her Faith roll, she is Shaken. On a critical failure, she gains a random mutation and does not get her extra card draw (see below).
    Any Sufficiently Advanced Science: Doomsayers may not use Edges that require Arcane Background (Miracles), but they can take the Wizard Edge, substituting their Faith for the Spellcasting requirement (see Savage Worlds).
    Mutations: Doomsayers begin the game with one random mutation (see page 95). Whenever a Doomsayer draws a mutation in play, she picks an extra card and takes the best result.
    Recharge: A Doomsayer who steps through a ghost storm (page 65) regains 1d6 Power Points or 2d6 if they get a raise on the Vigor roll.
    • Rad Resistant: Your brainer could eat rads for breakfast. He gains +4 on Vigor rolls to resist Fatigue from radiation. Rad Resistant provides no benefit versus targeted or damaging effects.
    •Alertness: Very perceptive; +2 Notice
