Also, if the creature side has more than 6 HD, do we reduce that to 6HD?

Liberty's Edge

Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber

Curious, since dragons get 6+int skill ranks per HD, could I use that instead of the class skill ranks, or do I need to go with the class skill ranks as you previously stated. I'm working on a myrmidon fighter young crystal dragon.

I really enjoyed the series even though

Spoiler:
I was put off by the minis in the first episode- they were too good for 1983 :P

And the "Have to roll a 13"/"One Fireball kills Demogorgon/Thesselhydra."

I loved the "Binder" with the Expert Handbook and module/ articles in it (was trying to see what the music sheet in the back of the binder was but it's not clear enough fo rme to make out.)

It was so very 80's and very much reminded me of the old days.

As for the Sheriff , yah, his first appearance had me expecting to be much more of a douche than he was.

Andrezi knows that there are a few gangs of Shoanti that have territory in the Shadow and Docks area.

The Ekara Atarangi, or Shadow Vultures are primarily composed of Skull-Clan Shoanti, and mostly stick to the deeper Shadow District.

These aremore likely members of the Nihowero, or Red Fang, gang, a group of Wind-Clan extortionists who are rumored to be looking to expand their territory.

The "family issues" I mentioned last week revolved around my wife's uncle, who passed away Friday the 15th. I'm afraid we'll be postponing the game yet again to spend time as a family today. Tomorrow it's back to work and a more normalized routine.

Steve was an inspirational and generous man, with kindness in his words and actions. I had no idea...

Liberty's Edge

Male Human (Extraplanaer Subtype) Expert 10

Katla could reasonably assume that he refers to the Shadow Clock, but you know what they say about when you assume. Unfortunately, as a relative stranger to the district, she may be unaware of other "towers".

Harry nods "I thank yew for yewr kindness, Priestess. I will return in the evening on Moonday." It being Starday now, gives you two days.

****************

Andrezi returns towards his shop, but as he rounds the last corner, he sees three burly looking men standing ominously close to his shop. The men seem of Shoanti descent and are lightly armored and heavily armed (each carries an earthbreaker and klar). They have not spotted the merchant yet, but do seem to be waiting for someone.

Actually, I've run two sessions- one for Thak Val Zsing and one for Zendicar.

bigrig107's session was missed due to a time-zone mix up if I recall.

Sundakan's was the first I cancelled because of the family issues.

I intend to get a few more sessions open this week once I get schedules figured out, but the family issues have to be a little more settled first.

I may only be able to offer one or two time slots but by next week I may have a better handle on things and be able to open a few more. I am intending on going forward with this, at the very least until everyone has had a chance to play.

Liberty's Edge

We're having some family issues, and tomorrow's game will be cancelled.

Also, This game is still looking for 1-2 players, and is planned to resume on 7/17.

"I... I wouldn't want yew to put yewrself in any danger. Trying to talk to her was how I got that lash on my leg." he says sheepishly. "Tha Tower's no place for a Priestess in any case, and I don't know where else to look for her."

The Tuesday at 7:30 has not been claimed yet, and since I need to plan my day, I'm withdrawing that slot.

I'll see Ovkkrah'gaahn at 4:30 PM in this thread since I didn't see your pvp invite accepted.

Liberty's Edge

Male Human (Extraplanaer Subtype) Expert 10

You assume correctly. Looks like bashing heads diplomacy to gather information may be required.

Harry nods. "Tha Shadow hides quite a bit, and most people ain't too keen to go looking too close. Thank yew, Priestess, for mending my wounds and soothing my spirit regarding Crystal. I hope yewr goddess will help deliver my daughter back to me. It seems, though, I've taken up enough of yewr time. When should I return to begin my repayment?"

Liberty's Edge

Male Human (Extraplanaer Subtype) Expert 10

Trying to get some prep done for Zendicar. Your melee seems way off.

Liberty's Edge

Male Human (Extraplanaer Subtype) Expert 10

As you enter the Ziggurat of Infinity, your world is transformed. You are enveloped by a featureless fog and time seems meaningless. Whether you wander the fog or remain still, in some measure of heartbeats it lift, revealing the scene now before you.

In front of you lies a vast and immeasurably ancient cemetery. Sixty-five-foot tall menhirs mark the entries to the cemetery, except to the east where one has fallen, blocking the egress. Shattered remains of what must have once been a stone statue rising hundreds of feet in the air lie scattered throughout the site, each measuring over sixty feet themselves, and easily twice the width and breadth of the menhirs. Two mausoleums remain untouched by the ages, one aglow with pure white and the other swallowed by the deepest blackness. The base of the shattered statue also remains, a solid pillar rising some seventy feet high.

A voice rings out, echoing across the cemetery and into the core of your very being.

The test is rather simple. You must enter one of the mausoleums and defeat its guardians. These crypts may only be opened with the proper key, held by the Keeper, one below and one within. But the Keeper has guardians of its own.

As the voice ends its speech, the first of these guardians appears; an ape of tremendous size, its arms covered with immense adamantine spiked gauntlets.

I'll see about installing Fantasy Grounds, it's been a while since I played in real-time. Do you expect voice?

I don't expect it, in fact, for these games setting that up may take up some of the time allowed, may cause lag and other problems, so I think we'll stick to text (at least for now).

Ok, I've answered it in the recruitment thread now. Sorry, didn't miss it, just didn't get around to answering it/any other questions there.

We'll call 5th-4:30 slot claimed. Are you interested in team or pvp if anyone else has that slot in mind, or just going solo for the first one?

EDIT: Also, were you able to go with Fantasy Grounds, or do you have a need/preference for a pbp hour?

Could we have a bit more clarification on how to build cohorts?

They get 1/2 their level of ABP, but do they get a feat each level?
30-point buy?
Wealth?

I'm going to go with 25 Point Buy and feats every level for cohorts, with 200gp/level for wealth.

For followers who are not cohorts, 15pt buy/elite array and 100gp/level, normal feat progress (make them the "normal" of the campaign setting.)

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.

Well, one could look through options on The Official PRD instead of the D20pfsrd. Of course, that is not as easy to navigate, so I can understand why one wouldn't.

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.

Likely the Lantern Street Lions will be seeing a number of people wanting to join them as their fame increases.

"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."

The man looks around, somewhat nervously. "I..I could... but... well, do yew think I might scare away yer ... customers? I'm sorta... outta place here." he bows his head, ashamed of his shabby appearance amid such beauty.

"Oh!" he snaps his fingers "I could come at night if yew'd like."

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.

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+
