How did you Adobe InDesign CS6(or later) for free!?

Though the program I use is open source.

EDIT: Should Angol have the Striked out entries under his Spells prepared?

I was referring to the online hosting service. Adobe Creative Suite services cost anywhere from $20 to $75 per month.

Oh I was meaning the PDF program.

Microsoft Word 2010 allows me to save Word files as PDFs all its own. No need for a separate program.


True... Though I know Word can be funky when it comes to positioning things dynamically.

I'll have to take your word for it. I've never had any trouble with it.


Most of them are easily avoided. The problem comes from designing it to be appealing enough to sell.

If you aren't planning on selling it for money... Then Word would probably suffice.


Very pleased to find this, I'm running a Nex based campaign where a great many of these characters will fit perfectly! Thanks very much for your efforts, they are much appreciated!


DOT

Dotted so hard there were ripples in my liquid crystal display!


I find the higher level stuff to be more useful, although I assume I will probably will be in the minority with that.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Excellent ideas, RD.


I usually need some good high level NPCs for my campaigns.

Though I really wanna see Ravingdork's take on some lower level NPCs.


i might try to steal a younger, lower level, She'er. but my computer has a hard time loading RD's sheet site.

I can't get any of the links to pull up. They all time out, even if I try to save directly. Firefox, Chrome, or IE.

Lantern Lodge

Works fine for me on chrome and safari.

Perhaps my server has been overrun by too many visitors?

Try again in a few hours and let me know if the problem persists.

Don't fret, this list isn't even half of what's to come.


Ah Ravingdork... A gamer after my own heart...


I can't get there either.

Grand Lodge

Can't access it either.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Maps, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

What are your connection speed and other specs? This service has never failed me before so I'm wondering if it's something on your end.


I had problems earlier, but now they're opening. Maybe it was your server swamp

I really like your arcane casters with the gear and cast spells.


How the heck did the necromancer get to caster level 30 with animate dead?

Thanks RD!!!

Sorry, I almost missed your question.

Actually, this would be a good time for me to cover some of the unique aspects of my character sheets.

Crossed out spells mean they've already been prepared and cast that day (and are usually up and running at the time the adventure takes place).

Rarely, a character will be benefiting from a long duration spell and not have it listed on their spell list at all. This is generally done for spells that last longer than one day, since I assume the spell was cast the day before, or several days before. In such cases, the spell is always mentioned under ONGOING SPELLS in the SPECIAL ABILITIES section. Wherever possible, an ongoing spell's effects are included in a character's stat block.

I use similar shorthand throughout as well, such as a superscript "B" to denote bonus feats or spells, a superscript "D" for domain spells, and superscript V, S, F, or M for verbal, somatic, focus, and expensive material spell components, respectively. I also put the abbreviation next to any spell name if the spell does not come from the core rulebook. Therefore a spell from Ultimate Magic might have a superscript "UM" next to it. I find it makes it easier to reference spells. Occasionally, I'll have other more unique markings, such as an asterisk, but those are generally explained within the document itself.

If you are referring to Araonna Chorster, she managed it through several feats and magical items that boost caster level (either in general, or specifically with animate dead) such as Spell Specialization (+2 CL with animate dead), Varisian Tattoo (+1 CL with all necromancy spells), Undead Master (increased number of controlled undead), and Spell Perfection (which doubles all of the previous feats' bonuses in regards to animate dead).

It's something of a mistake though, as it seems I've inadvertently counted Undead Master towards her caster level, when it doesn't actually increase caster level, just the number of controlled undead.

Her caster level with the spell is actually 22. At a glance, she can control a total of 196 HD worth of undead via animate dead, though she can control much more with her Command Undead feat. All of her undead minions were created in a desecrated area with an alter, which currently resides on another plane of existence (created vis lesser create demiplane) that resides within her purple worm zombie's maw (which she treats as an aircraft carrier of sorts). In general, she has her purple worm come up in the midst of her foes, spewing forth undead giants and wreaking havoc while she and her cyclops lieutenant fly over head raining down spells and boulders from their undead roc steeds.

If more numbers are needed, she will create a host of uncontrolled undead, leave them in her demiplane, and set them loose upon her enemies when and where appropriate.

The only way I can see having a larger undead army is to either have a higher level character and/or a mystic theurge.

Wouldn't you need to use create greater demiplane in order to have the demiplanes exit be at the worm's maw? You would need a gate after all.

Yes you would. However, she could still manage something similar by creating a gate with Craft Wondrous Item, or simply creating all her undead on the plane, transferring herself and her minions back and forth with repeated castings of the spell, then if she needs them all out at once, she can simply dispel her own plane, thereby ejecting everyone from it.

To my knowledge, there are no rules dictating where the exit site has to be.

Even if a GM rules she can't do all that, it's easy enough to assume her purple worm is hollowed out and they are all carried within it in a more mundane fashion.

EDIT: Re-read the spell description. I guess dispelling it is out. :(

OK, I've been able to access some, but not all. It's like 4 or 5 will work, and then the sixth one will time out again. Comcast as ISP, Houston, TX area.


Verizon; Dallas, Tx, Google Chrome;

I just opened twenty of them at once and they all worked.

And I closed them all; didn't want to jam anything up,

except for Vaelelas; I like his picture.


very cool and fortuitous for me I just made a post asking for characters folks like that never saw the light of day.

Do you have a favorite? I will pop him into my game if I can as a villain. Right now the party is a little low level 6, though there are six of them.

That's something worth trying, Spanky.

Please don't leave the files open in your browser. Load them up, save them to your hard drive, then close the tab. Maybe that will clear up some of the issues people have been experiencing.


Awesome Post RD.
As per usual your dedication to PF is awesome.
Dotting for future reference


If you use chrome or firefox you can right click save link as and it will save the PDF for later. It will free up traffic pretty well.

@Ravingdork: Now the spells and such make more sense.

Nice design idea!

Mondays. Mondays suck. Let's make them suck a little less.


I might just have to steal a modified version of the Myconid for my upcoming campaign world.

For some reason I can't help but think of the Petalars from the new Thundercats.

And now I am going to go make a Petalar race to use as NPCs in my campaigns...


Brilliant work, thank you for saving me a bunch of time making NPCs in my current campaign! It's very much appreciated :)


All great stuff. Dotting and loving.

FILE UPDATE

- Durin Wrang's stats have been adjusted to account for a missing archetype.
- She'er Falen has had her level corrected (was 20, should have been 15).
- Yiankun Lee's gear has been adjusted to better fit her character level.


Nice use of Martial Versatility on Gudruun. Most people wouldn't think of that trick.

Yo RD,

This is awesome! Keep them coming.

But the list could benefit from some organization perhaps?

Want me to make a google doc and organize these cool cats by class, and have you and me be editors? It would be more effective then a thread in terms of people checking out all the awesome things you have made.

Don't worry yourself. I will probably create a dedicated web site for that kind of thing.
