I've always wanted to try Legacy of Fire!

I have the necromancer build I've been wanting to try, but I understand how that can cause a lot of issues within the party...

Versatile Cleric Channel Positive Energy 1d6 (4/day) (DC 11) (Su) A good cleric can channel positive energy to heal the living and injure the undead; an evil cleric can channel negative energy to injure the living and heal the undead.

I've also been thinking about resurrecting Corbyn Osric the Inquisitor, even though the alias is being used for another character or trying something I've never played before like Gunslinger.

In short, I dont know yet....


A few extra things, I'll be adding more sometime later, hopefully today.

Regarding some of the campaign traits:

  • Finding Haleen: Keep in mind that multiple PCs that take this trait should be related, either through blood or adoption. This doesn't necessarily limit your racial/class choices, but try to keep it within the realm of believability.
  • Missionary: Sarenrae is featured very prominently, so she is definitely a recommended choice. Any deity can work, though it will probably take a bit more effort to establish.
  • Gnoll Killer: You hate those mangy gnolls.

Other stuff:

  • I'll be using a crit deck, but only for the PCs' benefit. I'm not going out of my way to see you get your limbs hacked off.
  • I'm going to go ahead and ban the Leadership feat. The Antagonize feat as well, because it's mean and I don't like it.


Here is another build I'm working with in case the necromancer doesn't pan out.

Monster Lore +2 (Ex) +2 to Knowledge checks when identifying the weaknessess of creatures.


I personally like the inquisitor a bit more, partly because out of bias in favor of the class and partly because I already like the liberty you've taken with the campaign trait you chose.

Here's a couple more recommendations and whatnot I thought of. One of which is class-specific.

Languages:

These two will probably get you the most bang for your buck:

  • Kelish
  • Gnoll

These are present in Katapesh, but are not nearly as common:

  • Osirian
  • Tien
  • Vudrani

The various elemental languages can prove useful later on:

  • Terran
  • Ignan
  • Auran
  • Aquan

Favored Enemies:


  • Gnoll
  • Magical beast
  • Outsider (pretty much all of them)

Deities:

The following are the most prominent deities in Katapesh:

  • Sarenae
  • Nethys
  • Irori
  • Abadar

Again however, feel free to fly with anything.

Knowledges:


  • Planes
  • History
  • Religion
  • Nature
  • Arcana
  • Engineering

Female Humanish Very little class but on the level

Purely voyeuristic dot.


Evil GM

*DSX undoes top button for the voyeur*

So we have:

  • Barbarian (Ifrit?)
  • Sorcerer
  • Inquisitor/Necromancer
  • Finwa
  • Me
  • Meowselsworth

    Arrrgghhh....must get brain working.


  • Legendary Merchant of Pins

    Will the Advanced Race guide be open? I don't want to get too far into this Ifrit if you disapprove.


    I had to double check the PFSRD, but it looks like all the ARG stuff is on there. Go for it!


    Here is my Alias


    Evil GM

    So lets have a think:

  • Nathaniel the Wolfish Druid (Human), found by Haleen.
  • Witch who hates gnolls; her village was destroyed by gnolls and she has joined the caravan in vengeance.
  • Pistolier (Gunfighter) was found with just his pistol by Haleen, very studious he experiments with his weapon in the privacy of his own home. By day he is a baker.
  • or maybe even a Paladin with some heavy armour (which could be interesting - although plate in the desert *ouch*)


  • Let me see if I have this right:

    • Leoian = Catfolk Sorcerer
    • DougFungus = Human Inquisitor
    • pinvendor = Ifrit Breaker Barbarian
    • Meowselsworth = _____ Bard(?)

    Pretty well-rounded so far, so whatever floats your boat. Though I think I know which one you're gonna go with...


    Before the ball gets rolling, now would probably be a good time to bring this up. It has come to my attention that my current method of hosting maps and whatnot, Google Drive, shows the names of owners of the emails that have been given permissions.

    This is understandably objectionable, so I am open to any suggestions for alternatives.

    Dedicated Voter 2013, Star Voter 2014

    Female Humanish Very little class but on the level

    You could always make a google account that doesn't have your real name on it and use it for gaming. :)


    A larger Human man, about 5'9" in height and 170 lbs in his thirties steps off the merchant caravan. His cloths are worn from the salty sea air and the desert heat from the long voyage. He is obviously not from around here. His skin tone is much lighter than that of the natives. He is equipped only for short term travel. He has paid his way to get here but now the money is running out. The look of satisfaction spread across his face as to say I've made it!. He steps forward, and in a loud commanding voice he shouts:

    "Pardon me, is anybody here familiar with the name Blackwall?"


    Female Cimelocarn

    I'm going to have to make my character. Sorry for the wait as I've been busy the last few days with birthdays and other stuff.


    No rush, everybody else is still getting their stuff together. Except Doug, of course. :P


    Evil GM

    And drop into chat if you need any help, Finwa. I'm much better and more decisive at making others PC's to my own.

    ;)

    So probably either an elven witch, or a skillful totemic druid. For my PC!


    I went ahead and put up the first post.

    You don't need to rush to finish your characters or anything, but I do hope to get things rolling by next week. This first part is mostly meant to familiarize you and everyone else in the group with your characters, so take your time. Things will proceed from there once everybody is ready.

    --------------------
    Trait - XXX
    Benefit: XXX.

    Trait - Gnoll Killer - Benefit:

    Familiar: Cat or Scorpion

    HEX: EVIL EYE - The witch can cause doubt to creep into the mind of a foe within 30 feet that she can see. The target takes a –2 penalty on one of the following (witch’s choice): AC, ability checks, attack rolls, saving throws, or skill checks. This hex lasts for a number of rounds equal to 3 + the witch’s Intelligence modifier. A Will save reduces this to just 1 round. This is a mind-affecting effect.

    PREHENSILE HAIR - The witch can instantly cause her hair (or even her eyebrows) to grow up to 10 feet long or to shrink to its normal length, and can manipulate her hair as if it were a limb with a Strength score equal to her Intelligence score. Her hair has reach 10 feet, and she can use it as a secondary natural attack that deals 1d3 points of damage (1d2 for a Small witch). Her hair can manipulate objects (but not weapons) as dexterously as a human hand. The hair cannot be sundered or attacked as a separate creature. Pieces cut from the witch’s elongated hair shrink away to nothing. Using her hair does not harm the witch’s head or neck, even if she lifts something heavy with it. The witch can manipulate her hair a number of minutes each day equal to her level; these minutes do not need to be consecutive, but must be spent in 1-minute increments.

    Patron: Ancestors

    Background Found wandering the desert, or that's what the Orc's that took her in told her. They saw that she had the white orbs common to the legendary Orcs of the desert - they took her in thinking that to kill her might curse them.

    Then one day came the gnoll raid, over the dunes they tore through the camp. Murdering and rending flesh, unprepared the Orc's were doomed despite a valiant defence.

    Alik ibn Palmsfire is the son of an Efreet named Palmsfire. Fathered onto a woman of a nomadic tribe, Ar'Duella, Alik was born into a hot desert life. Alik and his mother were captured during a raid by slavers and sold to a traveling freak show.

    A hard life was his. Alik grew up with little education as the focus of his shows were always the anger he held within him. Given an exotic looking weapon from Tian Xia, Alik was forced to fight strange desert beasts to show case the fire in his blood. As the Freakshow fell on hard times, the master of the show sold several slaves including Alik to the Pactmasters of Katapesh bringing him to the current story in the caravan.

    Alik's extraordinarily bright hair seems to always be lifted by unseen forces; it carries the appearance waving and somewhat indistinct as if seen through heatwaves. This serves to hide the small horns that peek through on his brow. He is tall, full of rage, and promises to one day discover the fate of his mother and meet his father.

    I am confused as to how to use my bard if I don't make a bardic performance roll.


    The bardic performance class feature is a bit misleading. It is more or less unrelated to the perform skill, with the latter serving its own purpose. Most of the various bardic performances can be activated so long as you have an audible or visual component - you do not have to make a skill check to use them.

    There are some exceptions, like the Countersong and Distraction performances, which specifically call for Perform checks.

    Thanks Mahorfeus. To be honest I've never played a bard so they are a bit exotic to me. It's good that you are patient :)

    And so goes the night. It is filled with laughter and drinking, merriment and love.

    And the next morning...

    ...our heroes wake up painfully, eyes crusted shut, mouths as dry as the deserts of Osirion.

    Looking up at the sun, Corneilious groans as the surf washes over his feet again. Jaykae clutches her head and begins to try and work spittle back into her mouth. Garruth thinks part of his fur is matted because someone vomited on him.

    Off to one side, a giant spider lies on its back legs curled in the death position. Further down the beach Keiko can be seen lying in a boat of Nordic design drawn up onto the sand. In the distance, a tall spire pokes up.

    "By the curses of man! Is that the Sandpoint Lighthouse?!"

    Lyssa the fox whines piteously in response. Her fur has been dyed an eye-churning purple.

    Alik cracks his eyes open...what in the Abyss? How did they get here??

    And so A Pathfinder Hangover starts now...


    Sorry for the delay, everyone. Everything now seems to be in working (or at least workable) order, so I'll probably be updating later today.

    For now, go ahead and steal Mike Tyson's tiger or something. :P

    Just poking fun at myself. No need to apologize.

    That was so cute. :)


    As you've probably figured, you will be facing the insidious pugwampis' unluck power again. For the sake of expediency at such times (like, well, now), roll the following twice whenever they come up:

  • any attack or combat maneuver roll
  • any "physical" skill check (i.e. Acrobatics)
  • any Reflex saves made

    In cases where you are unaware of the aura of course, I will do the reroll as per usual (though, I think we can do without the '????' spoilers now).


  • 6/6HP

    Oh, someone may have to take Corneilous/Doug's turn for him as he's away for the weekend.


    That's alright. I'm about 99.98% sure of what he will want to do. :P


    Female Kitsune (Disguised Human) Bard/1

    Sorry gang. I will post once I get to my friend's for pizza night.

    Don't worry, have a good time. Games go at their own pace.

    With the first real combat encounter of the adventure more or less over, I just wanted to get some feedback.

    While obnoxious by nature, this encounter (while a little larger than initially planned) is considerably tame compared to what's to come. Yet it has taken the better part of the month to get through. This is my only real concern. I did not want to rush anyone, but I feel like things might lose momentum if we keep going on the current rate. I'm not blaming anyone, of course - if anything, it is more my fault.

    Does anyone have any thoughts/ideas/opinions on the matter?


    I think the only reason it took so long to get through combat is because the combination of the terrain obstacles, the Pugwampi ability and closed quarters fighting caused a lot of missed hits. This is probably the reason combat lasted so long. I'd bet in the future combat wont drag out just because we wont have to worry about as many of these things.


    6/6HP

    Yep and with a +1 bardic song & -2AC, that's quite a nice to hit. And if we have bless or Alik rages, we should be able to do some damage.


    That reason is all well and good (and true, for that matter), but the number of rounds the combat took is not the only problem. The obnoxious nature of the encounter does not explain why it took 21 days to get through 7 rounds of combat.
