PaizoCon 2014!

I have 3 ideas at the moment, what should I play?


Skull & Shackles


weekly william's group. ill miss the first week and show up the second.

what i know of the party

My cousin is playing a human cleric (likely a do it all build or something)
dale is playing a dwarven fighter (likely sword and board)
kevin is playing a witch
seth is going to be on a temporary hiatus but will show up later in the campaign and likely play cheese
aaron is going to play a battle cleric or a 2WF build
javier will most likely play some kind of caster (don't know which yet)
i don't know what lyle will play but it will use obscure rules loopholes
matt (last i heard) is playing a gnomish rogue who wants to go wizard then arcane trickster, but he shows up every other week.

i have a few ideas i wish for votes on.

Kira Moonsong, Female Elf Rogue who will go wizard then arcane trickster, cover the rogue role. essentially an anal retentive neat freak elf who was raised by tengu foster parents in a human settlement. couldn't afford her academy lessons upfront, so she runs errands to pay for her lessons as a Go Fer.

Jadelocks, male Oread Martial Artist, an exile from minkai who bums off the cheaper parts of the shackles, smells like booze, hard as stone, and a wise jerk who comes off as an abrasive asshat. jadelocks is his nickname which derives from his jade hair, easier for people to remember than his real name.

Conflitta Ignatius, an impulsive, irrational chelexian fire elemental bloodline sorceress with anger issues and a daddy complex. her father is an earl and she is spoiled an confrontational. but quite a skilled linguist, and can be very persuasive. timing her fits of anger advantageously.

Nera Moonwhisper; Female Chelexian Magus. sent by her uncle to serve as a trade messenger, she got captured by pirates and forced to work.

I like Conflitus.

I also like Jade Locks, but instead of being from Minkai make him from Mgange, have him speak in a Rastafarian accent and flavour his unarmed strikes as Capoeira.

I vote for Kira, as she seems to have the least obnoxious personality.

I like that as a rule of thumb. I think I'll start using it with my players: "If you have multiple ideas for characters, play the one with the least obnoxious personality."

That's true of any game except a pirate game where PCs should be rock stars with a big cup of poor impulse control :-)

I would avoid a fire sorc as fire plus ships equals no ship to loot.

Says you. With the sort of pirate character I'd play, if someone on my crew was an "abrasive asshat" or "spoiled and confrontational," I'd throw them to the sharks.


Given that with such a big party class isn't really a concern, I'll just sort of run through what I think of your ideas.

I'd say a Chelaxian would have the most fun in this campaign (or at least the biggest tie. Check with your GM!) Considering my low, low, opinion of Oreads and other elemental races, (and why an earth elemental is a pick for a sea-faring game) I REALLY like what you've done with Jade Locks, but he doesn't sound like anyone I'd want to play for a whole campaign, but I can't make that call for you. Definate +1 for Capoeira though.

Also I'll NEVER understand why so many people want to play forlorn or foster child elves. When I play an elf I want to play an elf, and not half-arse about it. I also love the elf PC is likely leaving behind centuries of wine, comfort, scholars and song to go adventuring, not to mention their lifelong friends. The nostalgia, loneliness and homesickness is one of my favourite things about elf characters, and this AP is as far from elf-town as you can get so I reckon it'd be great.

Just sharing my thoughts, I don't want to be that guy that dictates what anyone should or shouldn't play (even if that is the purpose of this thread) but given that you're asking for advice, there you go!


updated list of candidates.

Jade Locks (Minkai Version)
Jade Locks (Capoeira Version)
Kira Moonsong, renamed Selene Blackfeather
Conflitta Ignatius, Same as Ever
Bleeding Rain; Male Mwangi Ranger, a manhunter from a cannabilistic tribe of savages who has no qualm about eating sentient beings.


Hey, cool. I'd recast my vote on your Mwangi guy. Can you do a booming African voice? That'd be a sight to see, I imagine. :P

I'm looking forward to giving Captain Harrigan a deep, nubian accent and a big booming voice. I've been working on my "I 'ave only ONE ruawle." for quite a while now.


Update. I was proofreading my sheets, and my cat sneezed all over them on accident. i had to throw them out because they were unusable.

I and I still say Jade Locks be de best character, de way him move will be poetry.

Although I also like Bleeding Rain, ask your GM if you can play a kuru (see Isles of the Shackles for rules details).
