Arcanium ~ A New World

Game Master BloodWolven

Present Quick fight!

Fight Map!!!

You have died and the gods have decided for one reason or another to give you another chance. This chance is to start anew as you are with a special ability in a mystical world of monsters and adventure.

It is an Isekai game, a reference to a situation in which characters find themselves transported to an alternate dimension or universe.


1 to 50 of 319 << first < prev | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | next > last >>

Where you ask all your questions and spoil your discussion with the lesser goddess.


Sven:
Your life flashes before your eyes as your life is cut short before it should have ended. Then you find yourself in a black room with no light source but it seems you are glowing as you are able to see yourself and the chair you sit in. It doesn’t even seem there is a floor, walls, or a ceiling, more like a black void. Please spoil your response as each of these will be unique to each player. After a few moments a gorgeous glowing girl appears before you and says in a disinterested voice, "Ah another life cut short before experiencing a full life. Welcome to the afterlife. You are in fact dead." She waits a few moments to let it sink in before touching up her hair and continuing in a prideful way, "I am Alethia, a goddess that guides humans who die young to the afterlife.

Getting a bit serious she gives you your options, "Now you have two choices before you. You may ascend to heaven, to tell you the truth heaven isn't the dreamy place you all imagine it to be. The dull place is full of spirits, you don't even have a physical body anymore so you can't do anything sexual, either. Just basking in the sun and working.
Or go to a new world one of adventure, action, and like the world that you came from. This world has been invaded by dark forces that continue to spread and decimate the population of the world. You get to go with your body and memories intact. You will get to bring one great ability with you as well, a weapon of great power, a supreme ability, or even an ally of some sort.
There will be many opportunities to change as you wish.
She spins and a flurry of cards come from her hands and land before you as suggestions. After a few moments she says annoyed, "Hurry up and choose.... you know that I have a lot of dead people to offer this choice too as well."

As you state you want to have fast healing 3, she smiles at you and gleefully says, "Sven you have chosen to be endowed with fast healing 3. May you prosper and do well in Arcanium! Should you find and destroy any of the 13 dark souls you will be granted a wish. Also closing any portals to other worlds will gain you another wish to make Arcanium safe once more. Good luck Sven Olaffson, may the moon bless your travels."

If you want to add or change anything please let me know. Otherwise you may go to the gameplay thread and begin.
You do still need to roll for your stats. From your background I would give you a +2 to str and con, also you may add a +2 for being human, and another +2 to a stat of your choice for being the first player in the game. It is good to be nice to those less fortunate that yourself.

Thank you! Made the changes. Sven is quite the beast now. A truly fearsome werewolf.

I was thinking, where is he from? An Ulfen from Golarion? Someone from our past? Other? I’m leaving it vague right now to fit in as best as possible with other players and your story line.

Joe the Paladin:
First off, thank you.
Joe, while on his way to work, would have his work clothes, consisting of a gray breathable short-sleeved polo shirt with black slacks with reversible belt, black socks, and black work shoes. If it's not summer, a hoodie as well. Joe also has his black reuseable cloth lunchbox where he keeps his ipad, extra charging cords, some plastic bags, throat lozenges, caffeine pills, a 1TB external hard drive (to bring his pdfs to work). In his work pants is any loose change, a few pens, his telephone and wallet.
I like the stats so far, but I was hoping he'd have at least a +2 to Wis, due to his religious upbringing and later new age studies.
As the ability I'd like Joe to have in a previous post, one of the options you mention was a magic sword. Well, I might as well 'shoot-for-the-moon' and ask Joe to have a holy avenger.


Male Human (advanced) Godling

Joe's stats
3d6: 3d6 ⇒ (1, 4, 3) = 8
3d6: 3d6 ⇒ (1, 5, 2) = 8
3d6: 3d6 ⇒ (1, 3, 6) = 10
3d6: 3d6 ⇒ (6, 1, 2) = 9
3d6: 3d6 ⇒ (1, 2, 3) = 6
3d6: 3d6 ⇒ (2, 2, 5) = 9
3d6: 3d6 ⇒ (1, 1, 4) = 6
3d6: 3d6 ⇒ (3, 1, 1) = 5
Wow! What complete $H!+ !

Each d6 is on average 3.5. So 3d6 is 10.5 as an average. A 10 is your highest. Ouch...


Joe:
Your life flashes before your eyes as your life is cut short before it should have ended. You may pick how...

She spins and a flurry of cards come from her hands and land before you as suggestions. You choose a Holy Avenger. After a few moments she says pleased, "I am glad you choose quickly, now you have two more choices, take a standard Holy Avenger or a legendary one."

As you state your decision she gleefully says, [b]”May you prosper and do well in Arcanium! Should you find and destroy any of the 13 dark souls you will be granted a wish.

You do not need to roll for your stats. Start with 10 in each and add the bonuses we talked about including your +2 for Wisdom and +2 on any ability for being Human. As a last note, It is good to be nice to those less fortunate that yourself.[/ooc]

"I am glad you choose quickly, now you have two more choices, take a standard Holy Avenger or a legendary one."

"Um", stammered Joe, trying to take this all in. "What are the differences between a standard and legendary holy avenger?"


Joe:
She smiles before licking her teeth and relaying simply, ”I am sure you know what is a Holy Avenger is since you asked for it. A Legendary Holy Avenger would be even more powerful, also there would be aspects for you to unlock as you learn about its history. Any other questions?”

Feel free to jump into the Gameplay Thread. You also would gain 2d8 additional hps and 8+[Int modifier x 2] in skills See the expert class. Please pick skills that make sense compared to your background.

Joe:
"Well, then", Joe said, trying to regain his composure, "I choose the legendary holy avenger."
2d8: 2d8 ⇒ (3, 8) = 11
I will add the hit points and skills to Joe's character sheet.
One addition I made: I bumped Joe's Int from 12 to 13 to gain access to the Fast learner feat. I didn't think you would mind, since it didn't affect his modifier.

Wilhelm Shieldbreaker here. Much though a nice shiny axe is appealing, I was thinking of something along the lines of one of these:
Hydraulic push (like Undine's get)
Surge early level power from the oceans subdomain (although preferably not based on Wis!).
Alternatively, perhaps go the other way and something like the Gnome racial spells, but gaining some fire based ones. Happy to go powerful and be cursed too, just not sure what level to pitch it at.


Male Human Fighter (Tactician ) 1

Also this profile is far from finished, currently is just a cut and paste job from a previous character. Should have it done by the weekend.


Hey Wolf and guys. Charlie here. Here is a bit about me.

Background For Charlie:
Charlie was born in the mountains of West Virginia. He was a normal kid until his first growth spurt. By age 6 he was already over 5 feet tall. At age 9 he played little league and was bigger than most of the 12 year olds. He also wrestled and played basketball. He was too big to play peewee football. He stayed active and continued to grow. By the time he was in middle school he started playing his true love, Football. As a freshman he made the varsity team. Over the 4 years of high school he became one of the most dominant offensive linemen in the state he lettered each year and earned "All American" status as a senior. To achieve this he was well accomplished in the weight room. At his peak he was part of the "1000" pound club. This club was made up of 3 core exorcises. Bench, Squat, Hang Clean. His bench maxed at 405, his squat was 425, and his Hang Clean was 225. He went on to go to College at Florida State where he walked on to the football team.

Football soon took a back seat. Not quite good enough for the next level he went on to play and referee intramural sports. He also was involved with many social groups and became a Resident Assistant at his dorm. Soon after he became Resident Director and managed the RA program. Here he found 2 new loves as well, one would become a career the other a lifelong hobby. The career would be in Information technology. He started by being the local representative for the network provider at his dorm. From there he spent the next 10 years working in student housing as an IT professional until getting a job with the State of Florida. Over the last 6 years he has went from entry level call center to now being a User Support Manager where he manages and oversees a team of 20 techs across the state. His live long hobby is the Society for Creative Anachronism or SCA.

He missed football and was always into some of the geeky things especially Dungeons and Dragons. So when he heard there were guys that fought in armor and stuff on campus he went to check them out. It was love when he put the helmet on for the first time. Over the last 15 years he has trained to fight in many styles. Sword and shield, Bastard/Great Sword, Two Swords, Spear, Glaive. His speed and power made him pretty good with a great sword, his height and reach gave him an advantage with the spear. He was a tough fight with each. His first tournament win was a novice tournament at his second event. Natural athleticism, speed and power all aided in this. Over the past 15 years he has achieved many accolades and awards in fighting and continues to train and get batter.

The last 6 years have also been spent with his lovely wife and 3 dumb dogs which he loves. He continues to improve himself daily, by reading and looking for training. He is fortunate that work allows and pays for advanced leadership and communication training that he can go to and takes a new course each month. He considered himself quite wealthy and fortunate with his life and friends until showing up to fighter practice that day. Dressed out in his chainmail, surcoat and greatsword in hand held high. Suddenly everything went black. Brain aneurysm would be what was told to his wife. He awoke to find himself now dead.

So I assigned scores.

Str: 18, I can/could military press 300lbs which is over head so seems legit

Dex: 14, I'm big: 6'4" 280lbs now, Football playing weight was 320. I ran a 5 flat 40yd dash then. I can shoot a gun and bow well and with years of fighting training I'm a bit above average at getting out of the way.

Con: 14, I like never get sick from cold or flu. Maybe once every 3-4 years while my wife is sick 4 or 5 times a year if not more. As a big guy I have been fat health most of my life due to sports and working out.

Int: 12, went to college work in IT a bit above average to average I guess. Not going to figure out the cure for cancer here.

Wis 10, this is a tough one but like many I made lots of dumb choices in my 20's, I feel I read people alright and have good intuition but we will call it average.

Cha 16, I have been a leader in everything I've done. Was president of a few clubs in high school, was a team captain for football, have advanced fast through work, most recent my wife and I were elected as our baronies, Baron and Baroness in the SCA. A 4 year job here. For some reason people follow me.

Luck 14, I'm not sure how to rate this. I feel I'm a lucky guy. Have a great life, with an amazing wife, friends and job. My old gaming buddies like to say I have fat guy luck wining a lot of new board games we try the first time out. I also win a lot at Catan which is rolling dice, luck and probability, but How high do I rate it? So if you want me to raise or lower it let me know. Same with any of the above scores. Thanks.

So my plan is to be a Warlord. Sharing bonus's with you guys. I just need to know what bonus's I get and if you want me to change anything and I will finish up the crunch. So what gift to choose. Fast heal is awesome, a legendary sword is as well, but I think I will go with a belt of might like Thor's belt Megingjörð, so in mythology his doubled his strength. Wolf I will leave it up to you what it does just let me know. Will continue with crunch and will finish up just waiting on Wolf for final thins. This should be a lot of fun :)

I cheated a little as we get to decide how we died it seemed so I died at SCA practice. So I have medieval gear my mundane modern stuff would still be in the truck :) Hope that's ok.


My chainmail is riveted blackened aluminum where every other row is a solid ring. So quite strong and light. Would this be mithril in the fantasy world? I don't need the dex room or anything unless my belt bolsters all physical stats, just a thought/question.

here is a pick if this works from facebook


Will Bradley:
Alethia crosses her arms accentuating her breasts as she seems annoyed that you keep looking at all your options and then she says again, "You get to choose. Trust me the sky is the limit but choose what YOU want."

Charlie:
Your life flashes before your eyes as your life is cut short before it should have ended. Then you find yourself in a black room with no light source but it seems you are glowing as you are able to see yourself and the chair you sit in. It doesn’t even seem there is a floor, walls, or a ceiling, more like a black void. Please spoil your response as each of these will be unique to each player. After a few moments a gorgeous glowing girl appears before you and says in a disinterested voice, "Ah another life cut short before experiencing a full life. Welcome to the afterlife. You are in fact dead." She waits a few moments to let it sink in before touching up her hair and continuing in a prideful way, "I am Alethia, a goddess that guides humans who die young to the afterlife."

Getting a bit serious she gives you your options, "Now you have two choices before you. You may ascend to heaven, to tell you the truth Heaven isn't the dreamy place you all imagine it to be. The dull place is full of spirits, no TV, you don't even have a physical body anymore so you can't do anything sexual, either. Just basking in the sun and working. Or go to a new world one of adventure, action, and like most of the games from your world monsters. The world has been invaded by dark forces that continue to spread and decimate the population of the world. You get to go with your body and memories intact. You will get to bring one great ability with you as well, a weapon of great power, a supreme ability,
Also you will begin with some skill as an adventurer and the ability to quickly gain power in your chosen class. There will be many opportunities to change as you wish.
She spins and a flurry of cards come from her hands and land before you as suggestions. She looks aprovingly on you and asks, "A Belt of Might or Thor's belt Megingjörð? Which will it be?"
Charlie I would knock one of your ablilities down 1 point, your choice and knock down your strength to 16. I am not sure what armor that is considering the link does not work. I know it would not be mithril but probably mastercraft you choose what armor it will be. Then with your answer and the few adjustments you are ready for Gameplay thread.

As you state your decision she gleefully says, "May you prosper and do well in Arcanium! Should you find and destroy any of the 13 dark souls you will be granted a wish. Also closing any portals to other worlds will gain you another wish to make Arcanium safe once more. Good luck Charlie, may the divine bless your travels."


Wolf:
Looking around at first I'm sad. "What happens in this new world if I die trying to save it? Will I still get to heaven? I would like to see my wife again, but yes I will go. I have been training most of my life for such and adventure. You can grant me Thor's belt? It is the ultimate belt of power. I will take it and defend this world for you. Is there a way to identify the dark souls? Finally thank you for this chance at another life. I think I will go by Frank, Frank Steal. May not sound Heroic, but give it time.

One last question, is it cool if my sword becomes a great sword? Ours are Ratan so effectively a two handed club but even a greatclub is better than nothing :). Making Luck 13, this was a hard one to decide on anyway :) and drop Str to 16. I based it off of carrying capacity chart and what I can lift over my head :) So no other bonus's then what about the normal Human +2 I didn't apply anything though I admit scores are high so I'm good. Thanks. Will finish up and post in game play.


Male Human |HP: 31/31 | AC: 20 (10 Tch, 20 Fl) (AC: 24, w/shield) | CMB: +2, CMD: 12 | F: +6, R: +1, W: +5 | Init: +0 | Perc: +7, SM: +8 Paladin/2nd | Speed 30ft (30ft) | Active conditions: None.

Wolf:
Joe will enjoy his ale and water thinking about his next move. He'll wait for more characters to join. How many more are you hoping for?


On the armor, I was thinking this as making it Mithril is too much. It is chainmail for sure as it covers down to my knees. I wear hardened leather arms and grieves though the chain covers past the elbow. It weighs less than a chain shirt though only about 20lbs. Are you cool just calling it MW Chainmail but have it count as light armor? If not I will just call it MW Chainmail no worries. Thanks.


Ashe:
The goddess tries to explain, ”I cant say for sure where you would go but most likely you would go to heaven, it does depend on your actions in Arcanium. Thor’s belt it is then. The Dark Souls are the 13 leaders of the monster races that have invaded Arcanium. Each are likely to be stronger than the average of their kin and likely have other abilities. Good Luck Frank Steal.”

No, you start with what you start with. Likely your Ratan is not a great club, is it a blunted wooden greatsword right? If so then the damage would be 1d10 with a crit of x2. Yeah your stats are higher than most so leaving them is best, everyone will have a chance to develop their ability scores.

MW Chainmail that is light armor works for me.

Ok Joe, sounds good. I think one more but dont wait for them.


Will Bradley I have a spoiler for you in gameplay, do I need to post it again.


Male Human Fighter (Tactician ) 1

Sorry, no need, just still been having issues with my old phone and internet. New phone has arrived and is set up now.
Will opens his eyes, at first the darkness makes him think back to the moment of his death, is he alive and buried perhaps? He remembers the house, it was still heavily smoke logged as they entered to pull down the ceiling and ensure the fire was out. Reflexively his hand pulls up the bodyguard attachment, still plenty of air left. Then he remembers the rest, his watch had been heading up the stairs, keeping to the strong bit next to the wall, when he had heard it. It had taken a moment for the sound of the whistle to register, but training kicked in and he started shoving watch members to the door. He thought he was safe as he made the door, but then he had felt the bricks come hammering down. At first he had carried on a few steps, but then more had hit, the world had turned black and he remembered no more. After a few moments to register his surroundings and the disbelief at being so wrong in his atheistic/agnostic thoughts, Will finds his voice, Did they make it out? My watch did they make it? Sh@t, what about Lucy? And the kids? Will they be ok? Once his immediate questions have been answered he finally responds to Alethia. Alethia, I grew up on stories of heroes and fantasy, I have dreamed of this sort of opportunity and I never expected an afterlife at all, of course I will choose this second life.
His hands hover over the cards, struggling to know what to pick, eventually they settle on one that feels warmer and heavier than the others. Alethia, I have always felt in someway tied to nature and I have spent my life fighting fire. I will choose this one, this ability to push water like a creature of the sea. Undine SLA Hydraulic push with the Hydraulic Manouvre feat effect


Alethia does indeed answer your questions giving you some closure with the life you will never be able to go back to again, "Your whole watch did make it out of the building. But there was a second bomb which exploded and took you out and then there was the shrapnel from that explosion. They will all live. Lucy and your kids will miss you but your watch and the insurance company will make sure they are well taken care of.
Interesting, you do know that it will allow you be an Undine if you wish it. Though the choice not need to be made now, the card will be with you if you want to make that change."


Male Human Fighter (Tactician ) 1

"Well Alethia, thanks, it helps to have my mind at rest. After all there is little I can do about it! As for this card, well I have read of Undine, but I will save that for now. It may well come in handy, but not yet. Right, send me on, I am as ready as I will ever be."


Male Human Fighter (Tactician ) 1

A quick apology as well, I wad hoping to get the crunch done at work last night as I have a kids party to sort for tomorrow and family staying. Unfortunately we had a busy night, but I should be able to finish it on Monday instead.


No worries get to it when you can. Most of what you are doing is RPing and interacting with NPCs.


Sven, Delman is out of shape to travel unless you carry him or wait for him to come too, what do you do?


Male Human Fighter (Tactician ) 1

Quick question whilst working out the crunch, I couldn't see if it had been covered. Do we roll all our HP or is our 1st character rank maxed? Also I am assuming we don't get Con bonus HP on our expert ranks.
Rolling all just in case.
HP: 2d8 + 1d10 + 3 ⇒ (4, 3) + (9) + 3 = 19 +1 favoured class


Male Human Fighter (Tactician ) 1

GM Wolf:
Further on character development. Do we get any of the other perks of the expert class, i.e +3 will, +1bab and pick 10 class skills? Not a problem if not, just don't want to shoot myself in the foot. Oh and lastly do the 2 expert ranks count towards the number of skill points we can have? For example I will have 21 skill points to spend (including background skills) which is 2/3rds of the different skills, but probably not very me.


Male Human Fighter (Tactician ) 1

I think Will is sorted, barring the answers to my questions. Unfortunately low wisdom apparently means I am crap at my job, but ah well, game mechanics!


Nonlethal (0) Wounds (23) HP (49) AC24 (23/14/21) Saves (6/6->7/4) Minor Form (4/5 min) CMD24 (23) Initiative (+2) Swim and Move Speed (25ft/20ft) Wildshape (5 hours)

Meh. Think of it this way. You’re not as good at your job without the benefits of modern technology.

Pretty sure everyone would take a hit to our profession skills. I mean...if I was playing myself I’d like to have “Profession Field Artillery” and “Profession Barrister.” But in a fantasy setting I’d be crap at both, given how little would still apply. At least with fire fighting I’d assume most of the principles would be there.


Male Human Fighter (Tactician ) 1

Yeah that was kind of the conclusion I came to, rather than take skill focus (Profession firefighter)! I might stick a few extra skill points in there as I go, but probably not.

Silver Crusade

Male HP 37/35 | AC: 20 /T: 12 /FF: 18 | Perc. +4 | F: +6 / R: +2 /W: +0 | CMB +9 | CMD 21 | Speed 30ft (40ft and scent) | Init. +4|

I"m sad I didn't get any expert levels. :)


I am sorry I missed that Frank, You also would gain 2d8 additional hps and 8+[Int modifier x 2] in skills See the expert class. Please pick skills that make sense compared to your background.


Nonlethal (0) Wounds (23) HP (49) AC24 (23/14/21) Saves (6/6->7/4) Minor Form (4/5 min) CMD24 (23) Initiative (+2) Swim and Move Speed (25ft/20ft) Wildshape (5 hours)

Ok. So...when I first made my character I made a conceptual mistake. I had thought, for whatever reason, that we were playing characters from pathfinders who died and were transported elsewhere. It was only after the second player got involved and I already started that I realized we were envisioned to play characters from earth.

So, after some thought, what I decided was this. Sven is from Midgard. He is a werewolf, as per viking legends. Where he is from, the norse mythology is real. Werewolves, giants, draugr, etc. Whether this is our world, or a different one, is completely up to GM Wolf and his vision of his setting's cosmology.

If this is not acceptable, and GM Wolf would rather Sven be from a different world entirely, then I am open to that as well.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Sven you can bring in other characters too. I like what you have done with Sven’s background! Have fun and keep it up!

Silver Crusade

Male HP 37/35 | AC: 20 /T: 12 /FF: 18 | Perc. +4 | F: +6 / R: +2 /W: +0 | CMB +9 | CMD 21 | Speed 30ft (40ft and scent) | Init. +4|

Thanks wolf. Updating: HP: 2d8 ⇒ (7, 6) = 13

Added the skills: was hesitant on some of the knowledge's, but then I thought about the world is based on RPG's which most of us have a lot of knowledge on, so a goblin is a goblin, orc an orc. So we all have the knowledge we have as players so we can probably identify most creatures just on appearance.

Ironically, the large Nordic werewolf barbarian has the lowest HP in the group! Not that I’m complaining. Sven has enough kill-power and fast healing to make up for it. But I do find it humorous. :)


Yup Frank!

That is true Sven but you were also completely equipped when you started and ready for this world mind and body. :)

Exactly. I rolled really well on 3d6. With the average being 10 for each stat, Sven ended up with...well, Str20 Dex15 Con18 Int12 Wis12 Cha12. After that, I really can't complain about anything.

Not “evil” per se. His alignment is “Viking Honorable.” To him it is wrong to break into a man’s house and steal his sword. It is perfectly right to gather your friends, surround his house, challenge him to a duel, and then take the sword off of his still warm corpse.

It sounds like Sven is Lawful Neutral. Though knowing vikings I would say they tend to be more chaotic. So I am not sure... Sven please add your alignment to your character sheet.

Also I will be going through character sheets today. Please be open to adjustments as needed.

***Everyone please put your background in a spoiler in your character sheet.


Also please add a description of your character to your character sheet, you may spoiler it too if you want.

Alignment is...hard. But I suppose LN works. I’ll update


I will be camping for the next four days so posting will be spotty at best. Sorry.


Male Human Fighter (Tactician ) 1

Really sorry guys, I thought I could take on this game, particularly as I love the concept. However a new recruit at work, my second job and a one year old at home who has decided to start not sleeping again, I am broken and need some rest. Unfortunately that means my hobby time is taking a hit and so I am going to have to bow out. I hope it goes well and I will probably hover and read, but i haven't got the energy to imagine at the moment.
Sorry again.


Well, here goes.

Backstory for Artemis:
Artemis was born on February 2nd, 2001 in Fort Bragg, North Carolina. With his dad in the Army, Artemis moved around a lot in his early years, traveling from North Carolina, to Texas, and finally South Dakota where his dad retired. Living in South Dakota for a few years, the family soon moved across country to Lewes, Delaware, residing in the countryside away from the coast. An only child, he grew up loving school, video games, and reading about the exploits and tales of long ago. At a young age, he quickly learned he had a passion for all things history, and quickly devoted a good portion of his childhood years to learning and digesting anything he could on the subject, perfectly fine with the small amount of friends he had in school. Growing up, Artemis wasn't the best at not getting sick, getting Strep multiple times and getting H1N1 once, but his young immune system was able to fend both H1N1 and Strep off.

Going to middle school, Artemis quickly got a growth spurt and soon became the tallest student in his grade, and then the school. Still being the quiet and academically inclined boy he was since childhood, Artemis continued to excel into high school, soon beginning to become more extroverted as he joined the upstart messaging system Discord, using the platform for more than just gaming, but to make lasting friends. This approach worked in making lasting friends, giving Artemis the ability and skills to make more friends in real life, introducing him into the world of Pathfinder. Using his online friends, he was able to join his first Pathfinder and DnD group, intrigued by interesting campaigns and settings. While his grades slipped a little in his Sophomore and Junior Year for various reasons, Artemis was able to regain focus and boost them back up to his academic standards.

Stats: Str:10, Dex:10, Con:12, Int:18, Wis:8, Cha:14, Luck:11


Good morning all, my humble apologies on the delays. This is Wanderer82 tagging in with my alias. It is all fluff, no crunch at this time. @GM Wolf, I will explain out my stats shortly. Let me know what you want from me next.


We understand Will, take care of yourself and if you do get back the time let us know.

SCP-049:
I would say your Con would be less than 12, drop your Int down to 16, and your Cha to a 12.

How did you die?

So right now you would be 18 from your background story.

When building your crunch you will be able to add +2 to any ability score of your choice.

Todd: No worries. Yes please explain out your stats.


GM Wolf:
So, will Str:10, Dex:10, Con:10, Int:18(16+2), Wis:8, Cha:1, Luck:11 work? And I guess I would have died in a car crash. Also, do you need me to explain my stats or are they now pretty self-explanatory?


Nonlethal (0) Wounds (23) HP (49) AC24 (23/14/21) Saves (6/6->7/4) Minor Form (4/5 min) CMD24 (23) Initiative (+2) Swim and Move Speed (25ft/20ft) Wildshape (5 hours)

I think that he wants you to explain the stats.

Now, I didn't use myself as a character, but I did stat myself for fun. Here is what I made.

Me:

Str (12) I'm not the strongest guy in the world, but I'm not the weakest. I don't find any of my soldiering tasks too hard in the National Guard, and the strength based aspects of Basic Combat Training was challenging, but not too much so. In the Guard I'm in field artillery, but I work with a computer (directing artillery fire), so it isn't physically demanding. I'm no athlete, and there are *many* people who are much stronger than me. So a 12. Slightly above average, but not by much.

Dex (10) I'm completely average at this. When it comes to shooting, I can pass my marksmanship test, but never by much. My hand eye coordination is average on other tasks as well.

Con (12) I get sick. I get tired. The run on my physical fitness test always kicks my ass. But I did complete a 10 mile ruck march with an injured foot...because I had to. So when I *have* to, I can be tough. But if I don't have to? Well...I'll struggle just like anyone else. So a 12...to represent this.

Int (14) Professionally I am an attorney. I don't pretend to be the best, but I can do my job. So I figure that this should be my strong stat.

Wis (9) Below average? Well, I'm enlisted in the National Guard in Field Artillery and I'm a lawyer. How is that for bad decisions? Yup, this is my low stat.

Cha (10) I'm average? I have friends, and I can get along with people. I enjoy public speaking. But I'm not the center of parties, or the person who people flock to. So a 10 seems about right.

Luck (16) I have only dated one person, and I married her. She is the love of my life. I have three wonderful children that I wouldn't trade for the world. My newborn sleeps half-way decently, and is actually cute (quite rare for newborns!). The only problem I have is that I haven't found a career that really makes me happy, yet. But I'm sure that in time it will work out.

Classes: Expert (1-Attorney) Warrior (1-National Guard)
* Two NPC classes. I've earned both. Not good enough in either to have earned PC levels.

Traits:
* Fatherhood (Can use Bluff instead of intimidate when dealing with own children)
* Caffeine Addiction (Caffeine provides a +1 morale bonus to all saves for minutes/Level after consumed. Going without caffeine causes a -1 morale penalty to all saves until consumed)

Feats:
Lvl 1: Exotic Weapon Proficiency AFATDS

Skills:
* Profession Barrister: 2 SP (+4)
* Profession Soldier: 2 SP (+4)
* Bluff: 2 SP (+5)
* Diplomacy: 2 SP (+5)
* Spellcraft: 2 SP (+6) [Pathfinder]
* Knowledge Planes: 2 SP (+6) [Warhammer]
* Knowledge History: 2 SP (+6) [Tolkien]
* Knowledge Arcana: 2 SP (+6) [Various other geekery]

Equipment:
* Marriage Ring of Power: When I put it on I am invisible to all women. When I take it off...I’m still invisible.
* Business Suit (+1 diplomacy when worn)
* ACU (-1 penalty to Stealth when worn)
* OCP (+1 disguise to look like air force)

So if I was statted that is what I think I would be, with explanations for all of my stats.

And yes, I know that Sven is *MUCH* better at adventuring than me. My 3d6 stat rolls were *insane*. Plus I am having much more fun RPing Sven than myself, so quite glad with that character, thank you very much. :)
