Agreed. I once had to tell a player "It's an interesting concept and an incredible 'build', but I really don't think that the other players will enjoy being your sidekicks for the rest of the campaign. Try something else."

The baby dreamed the BBEG into existence on the Dreamlands and through the interference of the GOOs, he was made whole. This works well if the baby had been keeping the related PC up at nights with his/her night terrors, which the baby "thankfully grew out of".

The BBEG wants the baby to suffer fear and dream allies into existence to help conquer the mortal plane.

The Road to Revolution AP by Oone Games (lvl 1-16)is available for Fantasy Grounds, the Razor Coast AP by Frog God Games (5th-12th level) is available for D20Pro. (Also the first two installments of the Legendary Planets AP have been loaded for D20Pro with the rest planned to follow)

Unfortunately, Paizo seems to have decided thus far to keep the VTT licensing restricted, perhaps in hopes of the developmet of their seemingly abandoned in-house VTT.

I'm not sure if Lone Wolf's Realmswork could be used with teamspeak/skype/whatever to simulate a VTT using HeroLab, but it might be worth looking into since they ARE licensing that for their APs.

I, too, wish Paizo would authorize someone (Fantasy Grounds would be my pick) with a real VTT to do their APs.... but nothing so far,

On New York:

When they're setting up the reasons for the act and show New York being trashed with Hulk breaking a few buildings here and there, why didn't anyone go ":Ahem: Looks like much less damage than, oh, I don't know, nuclear frickin bombs. Am I right?"

On stealing the Quinjet:

Didn't Tony Stark create the Quinjet? Wouldn't he, maybe, I don't know, have built in overrides he could access with his suit?

Wouldn't that mean he could basically have shut down the plane instead of chasing it?

I really, really enjoyed the movie, but those were a few snarky thoughts I had on the way home.

The action was great, the acting terrific, and the fun of the mid-game fight alone was more than worth the price of admission.

Our villain was, indeed, one of the best/most brilliant (and successful!) MCU villain to date.

A month or two back, Paizo and Humble Bundle joined together to do a massive Bundle for charity. I had purchased extra bundles both to give to the charity and to have to "give out" to people I gamed with who missed or couldn't afford to pick up the bundle. In four parts, it included:

Core Rulebook, GameMastery Guide, Pathfinder Roleplaying Game: Beginner Box (PDF), Player Character Folio, Advanced Class Guide, GM Screen, Adventure Path: In Hell's Bright Shadow (Hell's Rebels 1 of 6)

Inner Sea World Guide, Strategy Guide, Bestiary, Ultimate Equipment, Pathfinder Society Scenario 7-01: Between the Lines, Adventure Path: Turn of the Torrent (Hell's Rebels 2 of 6), Advanced Player's Guide

Pathfinder Player Companion: Inner Sea Primer & Pathfinder Society Roleplaying Guild Guide

AND

Ultimate Magic, Ultimate Campaign, Ultimate Combat, Bestiary 2, Adventure Path: Dance of the Damned (Hell's Rebels 3 of 6), Inner Sea Poster Map Folio, Pathfinder Society: Year of the Sky Key Scenario Mega-Pack (23 Adventures!)

All in pdf form.

The people whom I played with at the time all purchased the bundle or already had the contents, and I've handed out a few to players/friends since then. I find myself with one extra "gift" bundle, and thought I'd welcome someone who missed out on the deal to the wonderful world of Pathfinder with the gift link.

So, first person to post below will be PM'd the link.

As an outsider, Artix could have ties with Roahk from his days of roaming, or perhaps with Beyla Rodric by way of Alek Tercival, a slightly older paladin of St Cuthbert (and probable mentor of Beyla) who is known to occasionally travel for the church in performance of his mission of law and order. Although St Cuthbert is a pretty cut and dry law=order sort of god, his paladins tend to look to mercy and justice within the law, and that would probably appeal to a cleric of Pelor.

Newbonomicon/Delvin Voloch will not be joining us.

Everyone else, reminder that hard close is this coming Thursday.

For those with time tomorrow and little/no Fantasy Grounds experience, I may be able to open up a Fantasy Grounds session tomorrow for some basic tutorials and/or character entry for those who already have things worked out.

I'll post more when I know times, etc.

Liberty's Edge

Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber

Yes, Artix, that will do for the initial backstory. Please continue to work towards hard close goals.

Liberty's Edge

Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber

Yes, save bonus +4 vs fire, +2 to acrobatics, +1 to perception

Liberty's Edge

Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber

As per the Campaign Information, here is the announcement of selected PCs:


Ben Rice
Beyla Rodric
Delvin Voloch
Roahk
Saladar Bach
Sorin Jasidin

Additionally, Atrix Pavel will be accepted provided I receive a background by tomorrow.

The adventure is designed for 6 regular PCs, and likely you will start out with some advantages with Gestalt PCs. The slow experience progression will offset this somewhat, but Ad Hoc RP experience should close the gap somewhat. You should have enough time with the XP progression to get used to what each other can do and use teamwork to overcome whatever is thrown at you. Naturally, I'll be adjusting encounters as well.

Frankly, with "only" seven submissions, I didn't want to single out anyone's submission by saying "everyone but you", especially given the typical attrition that happens with online games of any kind. If we get all the way through with 7, I'll be very pleasantly surprised.

SO, ”Hard” Close

By May 5th, every selected player must:

Finish all mechanical aspects of their character, including starting equipment.

Expand their initial personality and background information to include their physical descriptions and a sample role-play interaction with one of the NPCs in the Player’s Guide

At least one relationship worked out with another PC selected (my preference here is that any "outsider" characters have a relationship/knowledge of/connection with someone "native" to the Cauldron environs.)

Votes on voice/text, and any other vote issues that come up.

Anyone who objects to the majority-voted "Lions of Lantern Street" group name should let it be known and suggest their alternative preference.

Liberty's Edge

Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber

Ok, folks, soft close is approaching, and here's what I think I'm missing from those who've submitted a majority of the soft close requirements:

a personality and background description of 2-3 paragraphs (to be expanded before “hard” close)[NenkotaMoon], a brief summary about the player’s experience with Pathfinder and with Fantasy Grounds[Newbonomicon], one sentence about something you want from the game- an event or development you hope to happen in the game [Lokiel, Newbonomicon]

EDIT:I know Lokiel went into the ER yesterday and may not be able to post a response today.

The whole premise of the Time Masters sending anyone after the LoT is flawed anyway. They know when and where he was when he stole his ship to start this whole thing, They kill him then, the LoT fade back into obscurity, their timeline is preserved, andall the work he did for them up to that point is preserved.

That doesn't work? Go back one mission, assign it to someone else, blip.

Rip Hunter's timeline is well known to the Time Masters.

Will be adding notes soon. Really looking forward to this game.

Up to soft close, if someone wants to change choices such as classes, etc. I'll gladly allow (only affects 1 of the history rolls- changes what you have to choose between.) I say this because we have some duplications and some gaps in "party roles"- but no one has to change anything, you'd just have to decide how you want to deal with any issues stemming from such a "lack". Plus we may get more applicants who may or may not fill these "gaps"

-In regards to your alignment restrictions: Generally, the recruitment phase is when you would weed out anyone who'd play CN as "lolrandom", and it's more sensible in my eyes to discipline or remove any players who are disrupting the party dynamic than place arbitrary restrictions that you only guess will curb that sort of play. -
Rather than “stealth reject” that kind of play, which good players can sometimes partake in because it can be fun in the right kind of game, I’d rather put it out front that I’m not looking for that for this campaign. It wouldn’t be very fair or honest of me to say those alignments are allowed and then turn away people because they chose to go that route. On the other hand, saying no right off the bat lets the potential players know in short-hand the kinds of attitudes towards things I’m looking for in player characters.

-I've looked over the page regarding the backstory roll, and there are so many things there that I can't possibly fathomed being forced onto me. For example, if I want to play an Oracle, I won't be allowed to choose a Mystery, meaning the entire thematic concept that I would build the character around has been randomly thrust upon me.-
Good point about the Oracle Background there. That one chart is very restrictive on concept. Of course, as Gestalt characters, you’re choosing between two charts, and I have given you the option of rerolling, so the rules I’ve set forth do not force you to accept the roll on the Oracle Chart. However, should someone choose to play an Oracle, I will allow them to choose a result on that table OR accept the roll on their other class (and of course reroll is still an option.).

-And what about the segment on romantic relationships? What if I intended to play as a celibate, or simply aromantic character, as I have numerous times before? I'd only have a 10% chance to get that result, and frankly, even hinting at romance tends to make me uncomfortable.-
I honestly don’t see, with the exception of “current lover”, how the rolls on romance would prevent you from playing a chaste or aromatic character.
-Also, what about classes that don't have a backstory table? If I were to play, say, an Occult class, what would I roll for? You haven't explicitly banned them, so there's no way of knowing.-
Sure, there’s a way of knowing. You ask and I respond. Given that several people have already rolled with classes not on the list, and that halfof the Gestalt must be a class with a list, it seems some people have even figured out a way.
But the question is an important one, and my answer may affect those who have chosen to use the system I set. For Hybrid Classes, you may use either of the “core” classes that compose the hybrid. For Occult and Intrigue classes, you may use whatever table you feel is closest to the class you choose. If you cannot determine this on your own, PM me and I’ll help you out.

-This game really does sound like something I'd enjoy, but there are just too many variables, and I'm intimidated.-

I recommend you give it a try with the way it is set up. If it blocks your creativity too much, you can always withdraw your interest. Sometimes what happens when the dice fly becomes something magically unexpected and expands the horizons of your playing style. Sometimes playstyles are incompatible and it’s better to seek other engagements for your imagination. Only you can decide for yourself which camp this game is going to fall into.

In any case, I appreciate you having enough interest to provide feedback and engage with me regarding your concerns.

Hmm. I'm seeing a LOT of red flags here. The fighter changes don't bug me too much, since I can just avoid playing a fighter, but the fact that a third party book is not only allowed, but required to play a certain class, is a bad sign to me.

This is designed to give the Fighter more options in combat in a different way than adding or modifying Feats. Path of War is very popular with many people and this is a way of including some of it without including all of it. By all means, if someone WANTS to play a CRB Fighter, I'm more than willing to allow it. All of the information needed to make these changes, however, is on Pathfinder OGC for free with no need for a 3rd party book. (Also in HeroLab's community pack for those using Hero Lab.)

Newbonomicon wrote:
The alignment restrictions aren't horrible, but it concerns me that you'd rather completely ban neutral and chaotic neutral characters than work with the player to develop a story.

"Chaotic Neutral" alignment is often used to excuse evil (or worse, random) behavior, and this campaign is geared towards heroic individuals who wish to protect and save Cauldron. My experience over 30+ years is that you get more "heroic" characters with these 4 alignments than with any of the other 5. In any case, the alignments listed work best with the themes of the campaign, and are the ones I've chosen to allow.

Newbonomicon wrote:
But, above all else, I can't possibly understand what would possess you to require that every character have their history randomly generated. This feels like cancer to storytelling.

Every character has about 9 pieces of their history randomly generated. They are not, nor should they be, the sum total of the character's background.

Random seeds are a role-playing tool which dates back to the seventies, and has a fine tradition in role-playing games from Traveler to Dragon Age, and, hey, look, even Pathfinder. They are not "cancerous" at all when embraced as a tool for inspiration rather than a block to ambitions.

I'm not 100% out yet, but I'm not confident.

They do stay the same if you preview. It's just when you add in other dice rolls between the current rolls that they can change.

For future people rolling, I'm perfectly fine with the way Simon did this with two (or more)posts, or with people rolling and editing things in via preview.

Simon, I'm just available and having fun with the way my concept for the game is congealing and coalescing. It's been awhile since I've had a real day off, and I'm having fun tooling around.

I was amused at how well the rolls fell into your intended background. You could indeed work the unexpected result into your background. Perhaps one of your parents or siblings was caught doing something that dishonored your family and you worked hard against that failure to prove you had more Surabar than the failed relative in you.
Perhaps one of the city's nobility took a shining to you and took you into their household as a result of your hard work at the academy (Liege Lord result)

Alternatively, you could choose that as your reroll option, but I like that you're willing to see where the rolls take your concept.

My apologies for missing the Campaign info at first. I will attempt to roll for Background now.

You didn't miss it, it wasn't there :)

I've added it today, and am tweaking here and there.
