Since it's a Supernatural Ability and doesn't have components, I'll say you can do it on the sly.

Harry washes himself up as best he can, then seeks direction for where to begin praying. Once settled, he begins, speaking quietly and reverently "Dearest Mother of Love and Beauty, please watch over my Crystalhue and help her to see tha ugliness in the heart of this Katarina. I plead with yew to break her free from tha power these Tower Girls have her under. Let her see that although Katrina espouses that beauty is power, power is not always beautiful. I ask this of yew with all the love in my heart, in tha name of my beautiful Deidre, in the eternal hope that she stands at yewr side, able to echoe these prayers."

"Been awhile since anyone called me 'master' Egrelt. But... no, I know I must have been quite tha curiosity limping in here. I can't imagine a handsome fella such as yewrself praying to tha Goddess of beauty would offend her half so much as my humble beggings. Please, if yew can spare tha time, join us."

Seeing Katla washing, Harry clears his throat softly, and quietly asks "Do yew mind if I scrub a bit of tha dirty off as well before we pray, Pristess?"

The wound closes up, as do a half dozen more less visible but not wholly healed injuries the man has suffered over the recent days. The relief is as apparent in his body as it is in his face. Andrezi, who may be watching his face, may even notice that one or two of the broken teeth are repaired by the magic- certainly not enough to undo years of neglect, but that damage must have been more recently inflicted.

Of ... of course, thank yew, Blessed Daughter,I am Harold Egrelt. My friends call me Harry. May we ... may we pray together?"

Does this overcome the normal type issues. For example, a character who uses charisma instead of dexterity and then gets a deflection bonus equal to charisma. They are from different sources.

I'd be ok with those stacking, since it is a deflection bonus and not a "stat" bonus on the second one. I'm more interested in preventing stacking untyped bonuses granted by stats, I guess.

Game should proceed on time today.

I'll take this opportunity to replace Grimvol with a more healer-y healer type. Grimvol will be recalled back to active service and given a promotion in the guard, while Saladar returns to his training.

"I remember some of the scriptures, my lady." he winces slightly as the bandage removal gets down to the wound. "My... wife used to quote the Melodies quite a bit before... Well, before little Crystal was born, and ...: his eyes well up, relating the story of his wife's passing in childbirth as much or more than any words could.

He clears his throat and wipes away the moisture with the back of his hand. "Actually, it's Crystal I'm here for, more than the wound, even. I'd like yew to pray for her. I did my best ta raise her proper-like, but, in my grief, I made lots of mistakes when she were but a babe, and we were driven ta the Shadow by those mistakes. It was a rough life for a young beauty, and that, if I don't curse myself by saying so, she is. She ain't had but me in her life, though, and I... I ain't been enough. She's fallen in with a rough crowd."

Yup. Since this is solo, group, or PvP and I just wanna run some games for some folk who want to play with these kinds of PCs- I figure why be too selective?

That said, I will be "auditing" characters for errors before I run for them. So, please make sure you're legally built under the rules presented before you sign up for a slot- less chance of cancellation due to "WTF did you do there?"

There really is nothing normal about the way I'm running this, I guess.

I've created Campaign, Gameplay, and Discussion threads.

If you dot or dot and then delete on the gameplay thread, this campaign should be linked in your My Campaigns tab.

I'm using the Campaign tab to create fast links for submitted and partially submitted characters so I don't have to dig through the recruiting thread. If I've missed any, please let me know (preferably with a link).

The Discussion thread is where I'll be posting slots starting next week.

I haven't decided whether I'll create separate Gameplay threads for each game, but that's going to depend on how much demand there is for PbP slots vs Fantasy Ground.

There's a few reasons I went Paizo Publiushed only. I like a lot of 3PP stuff, but when you're running Gestalt and Tristalt it's far too easy to find ways to break things over your knees when you include all the Other out there.

Frankly, you can break it easily enough even with just Paizo stuff.

The man limps over to the chair, his smile a jangle of broken, rotten, or missing teeth, but the shine in his eyes no less real. "Thank yew, thank yew. They told me I could come here and yew'd help."

He grunts in pain as he sits, the wound in his leg leaking through the bandage. "I cannot pay yew, though... and if that's a bother, then I will go..." he says softly.

"Oh, but I did get this for yew!" he says, plucking the Night Ocean bloom from his lapel. "It ain't much, but it always reminds me of that pretty bird's tail." he points, indicating one of the many stylized songbirds among your works.

I'm curious as to if you allow Weapon Attunement on Unarmed Strikes? And if so, do you use the two-weapon leveling on it, that I have seen on the forums, or do you use Unarmed Strikes as "one" weapon?

I'd like to know the same, but with natural weapons.

You may attune one "set" of unarmed strikes or natural weapons without two-weapon leveling. For example, your feet, fists, elbows, knees, headbutt, claws, bite, slams, gore, etc would each count as one "weapon". So if you want to attune your claws and your bit that counts as two weapons.

This seems unnecessarily punitive for Unarmed Strikes since you've made a Amulet of Mighty Fists unavailable.

The ONLY advantage an Unarmed Strike has over any other weapon is it can be used with your hands full, and takes away from being able to flavor your attacks as well (or more mechanically, utilizing more than one of an Unchained Monk's Style Strikes without being woefully ineffective, since they're separated between kicks, punches, elbows, headbutts, etc.).

Can be used with your hands full, cannot be disarmed or sundered, is fully usable when grappled, can be used with a shield (sure, maybe not monk flurry), is the basis for (and required by) tons of style chains, capable of doing flurries which mimic two-weapon fighting chains (all of which gain the benefits of feats like weapon focus/specialization/improved critical, usable with Weapon Finesse, damage die increases with levels (monk/brawler/sacred fist)......

Let's not pretend the bolded statement is in any way true.

The italicized statement is true, but no more penalizing than someone fighting with two weapons, which is the only other way to get that many attacks a round.

Missed answering this question first go-around.

I had to draw a line somewhere, and given the numerous benefits without drawbacks, this is where I decided to draw it. Each player will have to decide for themselves whether it's "worth it". I imagine most will go another route.

Also, do you have any limits on Summoners and their archetypes?

Paizo-published only. You are responsible for providing stats for and controlling anything you summon, must know and obey any limits on the degree of control you have over your summons. No wish/chain summoning/binding.

Philo Pharynx wrote:
Are there any unusual rules for cohorts, eidolons, familiars, companions, etc?

Eidolons, familiars, and animal companions gain no benefits from ABP, unless you use your armor/weapon/stat Attunement on them instead of yourself (which will be allowed, but you cannot transfer any other benefit of ABP).

Cohorts/companions, etc. gain only 1/2 their PC class level (do not include any racial HD or NPC class levels) in benefits from ABP. NPC characters such as these are created with "normal" NPC creation rules and not gestalt/tristalt.

You can opt to take them with you on a challenge, but you're responsible for providing statblocks and running them. They will likely die quickly in Tests, so it's advisable to consider leaving them behind. In regards to using them for buffs, remember the basic rule that you are given anywhere between 1 round and an hour's warning before transport to the Tests- In other words, buffs lasting longer than an hour would be your best bet to plan on unless you bring with.

Companions that are killed in Tests are brought back to life if the Potential "wins/passes". If they die and you "lose/fail" the Test, you must "win/pass" a different test to get them back.

Pay for levels using the formulae in the OP, limited to critters published by Paizo. If you think something is too crazy powerful, please ask before fully statting out, but I expect I'll be ok with just about anything, because I am insane.

Also, Necromantic Affinity has a pretty hefty drawback (hurt by Cure spells), can we opt out of that Feat, or do we only get the upside and no downside?

That is a question that has been asked twice now, so I really should answer it. You gain only the benefit and not the drawback.

Brisk Spell You can alter a spell that grants a creature a move type it doesn't normally possess, increasing the granted speed by 10 feet. A Brisk Spell uses a slot equal to the spell's normal level.

Spell Denial Choose a school of magic. You gain +2 on saving throws versus spells of that school. (choose a different school each time you gain the feat).

Scale and Skin whenever the subject of a transmutation spell or spell-like ability, increase your natural armor by 1, increase by 2 instead at caster level 10+

As Andrezi is making his exit, another man approaches the shrine. Filthy, jumping with fleas, and surrounded by flies he has to bat away from necrotic scabs, he walks with a limp apparently caused by a very recent and poorly bandaged wound.

He hesitates as Andrezi reaches the door concurrently with him. He bows his balding head, demurring to Andrezi, breathing heavily with wet-sounding gasps for air. Incongruously, he wears a freshly-plucked flower on his shabby lapel.

The flower is from a simple weed that grows on the coastline in the shadow, but which has a splendid array of colors and hues. Mostly purples and blues, with splashes of greens, it is known as the Night Ocean.

I think we've got a few complete or nearly complete characters, so I'm going to kick things off next week. Gotta give myself time to set up some of these challenges, but I believe I will be able to run the following:

Monday June 27th at 1PM EST
Tuesday June 28th at 4PM EST
Wednesday June 29th at 10 AM EST

Other slots may become available after I've figured out my wife's schedule.

These will be the first of these games, so there may be a bit of a learning curve on difficulty/timing. Remember you don't lose anything by losing/failing. Who wants to be the first Potential to step forth?

If my work changes my schedule, I will be sure to post any changes here. Also, if anyone gets bumped because of a change in my work schedule, I'll do my best to work out a rain game via PMs to accommodate.

What kind of tech level are we looking at? I was considering being part Gunslinger but that may not fit. Then again, with only 5000 gp, it may not fit anyway.

I've always wanted to play a Gunslinger/Grand Marshal character, and having him stroll up as a potential God of Justice or something would be rad.

I'm afraid we're at "Emerging Guns" level.

And thanks. I'll try to live up to that confidence.

Backstory: It's hard for him to remember who he was. He left home a simple bard, a storyteller looking for stories. Then he just kept finding more challenges, getting drawn into more conflicts and problems, and he had to learn and change so much to survive. He had to become a leader, a sage, a cutting warrior and a skilled diplomatic. What is he now? Earthfist, Duke of the Eighth Mountain, something about Lord of the Krovensi People? Maybe with this ziggurat, he can throw himself into a simple, isolated problem, and from its trials emerge... as himself.

Prelude One

The Hound growled at the men before him. "What do you mean, we 've lost another shipment? You mean you blundering fools let someone stop it. Tell me."

The men's faces, covered as they were in grinning harlequin masks, didn't betray their fear of the grizzled bugbear before them, but their voices shook with an unsteadiness gripped with terror. "It was the Tempest." the bravest among the managed to spit out.

The Hound rose to his feet and the men scattered as he grabbed the head of the man who spoke. "The Tempest?" He squeezed and the man's skull made a cracking noise, blood pouring from his eyes, nose, ears, and mouth. A wet, gurgling, sound escaped him as his lungs gave up their last breath.

"Find me this Tempest, and report his location to ME!" he shouted at the fleeing men.

Prelude Two

A shape slithered across the beams supporting the old tower's bell. Covered in shadow, its movement was all but invisible. A female voice whispered, echoing through the chamber in its sheer power despite the whisper. "The Tower hasssss changed. It isss sssubtle, but do you not feel it, my old friend?"

A monstrosity given life by magic, but the spark of intelligence by something greater, nodded its mishappen head. Its eyes wobbled a bit, one green and one brown, as its sewn mouth let out an affirmative grunt.

"I musssst alert the Sssskinsaw Men. There issss a new power in the Ssssshadow, and it issss of the Light. It cannot be tolerated."

The Scarecrow shrugged. The concerns of the Skinsaw Cultists were of little bother to him. He was more concerned with this new sensation he had felt, a sensation of connection and of power.

Some more information about Borus:

Borus gave up coffee the day before the party left for left for the Dungeon of Graves, and has spent the first hour or so of the day each day in a bit of a grumpy funk. At some point, he's likely to brew some fungi in an attempt to overcome his withdrawal headaches. Maybe some friendly underground merchant will have something with caffeine. It used to help with the pain of his magic, or so he has convinced himself.

Borus sometimes talks in his sleep in languages he doesn't know.

He adds trinkets and trophies to his orc skull ram, usually binding them with strands of his own hair or hair plucked from defeated enemies. That these trinkets break off occasionally in combat doesn't seem to bother him, and he usually just adds another soon after rather than trying to "fix" the "damage".

Borus likes picking up odd languages, the more unusual the better. He especially likes picking up the curse words and mingling them in with his everyday speech.

The Witness peered over the gathering crowd of Potentials. This millennia’s crop was an amusing lot. How would the cosmic balance shift if this lot became the new gods? Well, this and worse has happened before, ever was, and shall be again, he reminded himself.

Out of habit more than necessity, he cleared his throat. His voice boomed over those assembled and echoed through time, reaching out to those who had come before and all the way to the ends of time to those who would yet come. ”Behold, the Ziggurat of Infinity. Therein, you shall face the challenges which will determine your worthiness to Ascend. At this moment, you are a Potential, and nothing more. Succeed in the Tests of the Ziggurat, and you shall leave behind your mortal existence and become a God. Many will fail, and remain mere Potential. At the end of the Cycle, their Essences will become fuel for the Divine Spark.”

He smiled, smacking his lips, and muttered ”Tasty, tasty fuel….” with a sweeping gesture, the object in the distance became larger and closer as the ground shook beneath the feet of those gathered, soon eclipsing all else in the otherwise featureless plane.

"Who will be the first to face their destinies?" he asked, red cape fluttering in an unseen and unfelt breeze.

If you want to remove magic items entirely (or make them so exceedingly rare that there is no expectation of finding them), consider giving the characters bonuses from the following table as if they were 2 levels higher. The table extends to 22nd level to account for games without magic items.

This option is what I was referring to. So, yes, you can attune items, but there are no "native" or un-attuned magic items. Basically the only magic is that you provide yourself through attunement.

This puts everyone on a more equal footing and levels out my expectations with already pretty complex characters.

No magic items whatsoever. If you can't do it yourself (or pay someone to do it for you) it can't be done!<---Edit: realized that statement may be confusing. Items cannot hold magical power on a permanent basis and require a being of power to invest in them to even hold temporary power (ABP, alchemical infusions... spellbooks are instruction manuals for how to... etc.; there are no magic items, not even "consumables" such as scrolls, wands, potions, etc.) If you are capable of crafting a non-magical item by taking 10 on a related craft skill you may pay the crafting cost for those items.

Alchemical items, special materials, etc. are ok.

Also, a note regarding buffing: Assume you are told "Sometime in the next hour, you will be summoned to the Test." Could be a fw minutes, could be a full hour. I may even roll a d60. :P

I don't see why not, although you would have to let me know when you signed up for a game which character you would be playing.

I imagine it will have great potential for lethality given the powerful nature of the PCs and the need to challenge them adequately.

Death, however, will merely restore you to how you started the challenge you lost for the next time you play.

Progression through success, stagnation through failure.
