Most Relevant Build and World Information Will be Here.

So this is a homebrew experiment on a series of houserules meant to allow heroes, to well, be heroes.

You are newly recruited agents of the secret society that calls themselves the Red Sentinels. Claiming to act above any guild or law they work relentlessly to resolve the plague that has been devouring the city of Freeden for years. You have been chosen, either from the guilds, the populace or perhaps even among members of the Church of The One Lord to help solve this menace and release the city from the plague once and for all before another Flesh Harvest begins.

If you have any questions do let me know. I answered some in the interest thread already.

This will be up until Sunday night. I figure that's enough time for those truly interested to get something together.

Ultimately what I want is two things. A solid sheet and a very compelling character. The length of the game depends very much on the strength of the characters and the reliability of the palyers. If I can have reliable players with very strong and interesting characters with hope for development than who knows how long this will go for.


Johnnycat here reposting my submission.


Dot.

Academic/Spiritualist Hedgewitch incoming. Will have full rogue trap finding and at least moderate cosmic power.


Dot

Working out the kinks of my traveling performer/former caravan guard Bushi Warlord.


Dotting


Dotting in with some interest here. Fairly unsure of what I'd build, gonna have to look at my options, but it seems very intriguing.


Dotting, I'll put together the actual character and backstory soon.


Dotting for interest


Tentatively interested, depends on if Rorek's game is truly dead or not.

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

Definitely interested. Will work something up soon.


dot. character building in progress


This sounds pretty awesome. I haven't gotten a chance to actually play with any of the Spheres of Power stuff, so I'd rather like to do so. I'll get a character together soon.


Temporary submission... Mostly to start conversations with the GM :) I'm interested in the "Blood" magic from the document, so I created a Spelleater Bloodrager (Tiefling, Demonspawn, with the Abyssal bloodline). I'm working on the background and sheet might still suffer some changes.

How do we do about gold? Also, on traits - could we get Regional traits, and adapt them to Aveira (under your approval)?

Are we using background skills or the variant multiclass system? :)

The Exchange

For gnomes are things like the Bleaching a concern like in Golarion or are they basically magical halflings? Lol

More like, Terry Pratchett's nac mac feegge. But bigger, not quite as strong, ans a lot less clannish. But every bit as surly, ill tempered.

Gold is appropriate for level(3000). Regional traits are fine.

Nay on the VMC and background skills.

Bloodmagic is, as stated, pretty mysterious. Partly because no proper studies have really been done on it. Being born with innate magical ability isn't seen as something special. Most people can take a course in college, even night school, and learn at least how to use cantrips. So being born with it might be considered intriguing or weird but not entirely aberrant.


Thanks TarkXT! This helps with the build ideas. :)


I'd love to get in on this somehow, but I'm a little late.

At the very least will you be sharing this with rest of us somehow, Tark? A blog, posts, or stream?


It's a pbp. The whole game is here.

Oh for the love of...

I had no idea what forum I was on. It's been a long day. Thanks.


Here is Brittiri. Dervish Defender (Warder).

I haven't sussed out gear and I may drag my feet on that unless selected, unless that would actually impact my application then I will hammer it out....


Just popping in to let people know who posted in the interest thread to resubmit here if you did there.

That way I know you're still interested and have everything in one convenient.


Does the one lord have domains and a favored weapon?

Special Abilities
====================
Defensive Focus (Ex): At 1st level, the defensive prowess of the warder is second to none, allowing her to focus her actions purely on defending himself and her allies in ways that cannot be replicated. The warder gains the Combat Reflexes feat as a bonus feat, using her Intelligence modifier in place of her Dexterity modifier to determine the number of additional attacks of opportunity she may make each round.
When recovering maneuvers as a full round action, the warder sets up a defensive perimeter around himself to defend her allies, increasing her threatened area by 5 ft. for every 5 initiator levels she possesses. Until the beginning of her next turn, she may make attacks of opportunity against any opponent in this threatened area that provokes attacks of opportunity. She may move as part of these attacks of opportunity, provided her total movement before her next turn does not exceed her speed (his movement provokes attacks of opportunity as normal). Additionally, while using defensive focus, the warder adds her Intelligence modifier plus her class level to her CMD for the purposes of defending against enemies trying to use the Acrobatics skill to prevent her from getting attacks of opportunity against them.
Aegis (Ex): At 1st level, the warder's defensive prowess extends to those who choose to stay near to him. Allies who are within 10 ft. of the warder's position gain a +1 morale bonus to Armor Class and to Will saves under the warder's defensive aegis, her presence bolstering and shepherding the defenses of her allies. This bonus improves to +2 at 5th level (+3 at 9th level, +4 at 13th level, and +5 at 17th level). The warder does not receive this bonus, but may receive the benefits of this ability from another warder. If the ally cannot see or hear the warder, then the ally does not gain the benefits of this ability (such as if the warder is concealed or invisible).
Armiger's Mark (Ex): At 2nd level, a warder is trained in how best to control her enemies and how they behave in battle, urging them to throw their all against the warder's indomitable armor and unyielding shield. With a sharp blade, a clever taunt, or something that otherwise attracts her foe, the warder can direct the attention of enemies towards himself. Whenever the warder attacks a foe in combat and inflict at least 1 point of damage, as a free action she may mark them as her foe (he may even mark a foe during an attack of opportunity and may make the free action to do so, even though it is not her turn) and attempt to continue to force them to engage the warder only. The target is aware of being marked, and the mark remains for a number of rounds equal to the warder's Intelligence modifier (minimum of 1). Marked targets suffer a -4 penalty to attack rolls against foes that are not the warder, and arcane spellcasters suffer an increase in arcane spell failure of 10% + 1% per two warder levels until the mark expires. The warder may only maintain a number of marks equal to 3 + her Intelligence modifier at a time, and she may make a number of marks per day equal to 1/2 warder level + Intelligence modifier. At 8th level, this penalty increases to -6, and it increases again to -8 at 16th level. This ability functions on creatures with an Intelligence score of 1 or more, allowing her to mark animals and other beasts as well as sentient beings, but not mindless creatures such as skeletons. Multiple armiger's marks overlap (do not stack).

He has all of them.

No really.

I'm letting players interpret them a bit.

Right now there's only two facts particularly well known as far as the deity is concerned.

1. Magic other that granted by the One Lord is considered aberrant and sinful.

2. The One Lord became the one lord by defeating the other selfish and petty gods. The details of this are widely debated in the church.

Grand Lodge

occult classes available?


Yes.

We only have like a couple apps finished as far as I can tell.

Reminder deadline for finished apps is tomorrow night.

Grand Lodge

Oh sweet same rules no full casters right


Exactly. So no psychic. But all the rest are perfectly okay as far as I can tell.

Check the doc for a bit of info regarding psychic magic.

Making a bloodrager


Okay, so here's the fluff for my character, completing my submission!

Spoiler:
Born in the common district, Kalin’s parents were poor workers who could barely afford to feed themselves, let alone another mouth. They left him at the door of the city garrison, where he was then delivered to the Scarlet Sentinels to raise him since the guards couldn’t take care of a young child. He grew up in the Sentinel’s care, running errands for the soldiers and learning how to fight in order to one day join the Sentinels.
Since his youth, Kalin has always been a fighter for those who couldn’t fight for themselves. He will do anything for his fellow Sentinels, and has spent years working with the city guards to defend the city. These days he works to train new city guards to protect Freeden.

Kalin is a serious individual, carrying a long polearm across his armored back. He is loyal and honest, but takes things very seriously and will not change his judgments of people after he’s been around them for awhile. This can both lead to misled trust and to skepticism of those who have proven themselves over and over.


My submission is finished and on my aliase

Edit: fixed some major things


Building a character, hopefully finishing them up by tonight. With the One Lord defeating other gods and having access to all favored weapons and domains, could this extend to benefits of the Deific Obedience feat? Thinking strongly about a Judge Stalker of some kind.


Ima say yes on the obdedience thing.


About 7 hours left until I close recruitment.


So far I have 4 completed(?) submissions so far.

Dreadguard Lienhol
Dommer Heineous
Brittiri Longtread
Geralt Snacko

Two Warders, Two Bloodragers. Hilarious. :P

I may go back into the interest thread and PM some people who had ready submissions in that thread already to see if they're still interested.

In the meantime it's 5 hours until I need to close.


I'm working on a Warlord right now. I'm close to done; shouldn't have any trouble getting it in within 5 hours.


And Ryzern's here, Poor Wandering Ones entry to this merry tale.

Comp ate this thing twice so I am getting this here while I keep working just in case. Sorry for the crude look. All the choices are there and everything but gear is correct.


Technically I've got more Occultist levels than Warder at the moment.

Yeah, I just lost my backstory >_<


Well that is as done as I am going to get it. Everything but gear is good to go.

I believe it is now time to have some schnapps and watch Gotham. So do you think The Penguin is a Mastermind or more a vanilla investigator?


I'm going to go ahead and post this, even though it's not quite done... I need to take a break and get dinner.

I still need to add some detail to the physical description, show the breakdown of what's changing each level, figure out equipment, and choose gambits and maneuvers.

The background is there, though, and there should be enough to see where I'm going with it.


Also, I am TurtSnacko, just forgot to make my aliase Geralt :)

Edit: I've realized my backstory was ugly to look at, so I fixed the Grammer mistakes


Welp, got knocked out By a cold+fever and decided to withdraw interest from here, best of luck to the chosen ones!


Not to add to the myriad of warders, but I think my application is done as well Tark. I posted it in two separate posts, one with a spoiler for backstory and another with a spoiler for stats, since I finished them at different times.

Sovereign Court

Would like to submit Rubick! He is a bard (Sandman). He is not 100% complete, since he is supposed to be a jack of all trades and would need to know witch are the players before finishing him.

Bard Features
Bardic Performance: Countersong, distraction, fascinate, stealspell.
Master of Deception: A sandman gains a bonus equal to half his level on Bluff, Sleight of Hand, and Stealth checks. He may also disarm magical traps with Disable Device as a rogue’s trapfinding ability.
Sneakspell: At 2nd level, a sandman adds +1 to the save DC of spells and bardic performance against opponents who are denied their Dex bonus. This increases to +2 at 10th level and +3 at 18th level. In addition, at 6th level he gains a +2 bonus on caster level checks to overcome spell resistance against such foes, and this bonus increases to +4 at 14th level.
Trap Sense: At 3rd level, a sandman gains a +1 bonus on Reflex saves against traps and a +1 dodge bonus to AC against traps. These bonuses increase by +1 every three levels after 3rd.
Well-versed: At 2nd level, the bard becomes resistant to the bardic performance of others, and to sonic effects in general. The bard gains a +4 bonus on saving throws made against bardic performance, sonic, and language-dependent effects.

Racial Traits
Lifebound: Samsarans gain a +2 racial bonus on all saving throws made to resist death effects, saving throws against negative energy effects, Fortitude saves made to remove negative levels, and Constitution checks made to stabilize if reduced to negative hit points.
Low-light Vision: Samsarans can see twice as far as humans in conditions of dim light.
Mystic past life: You can add spells from another spellcasting class to the spell list of your current spellcasting class. You add a number of spells equal to 1 + your spellcasting class's key ability score bonus (Wisdom for clerics, and so on). The spells must be the same type (arcane or divine) as the spellcasting class you're adding them to. For example, you could add divine power to your druid class spell list, but not to your wizard class spell list because divine power is a divine spell. These spells do not have to be spells you can cast as a 1st-level character. The number of spells granted by this ability is set at 1st level. Changes to your ability score do not change the number of spells gained. This racial trait replaces shards of the past.
Samsaran Magic: Samsarans with a Charisma score of 11 or higher gain the following spell-like abilities: 1/day—comprehend languages, deathwatch, and stabilize. The caster level for these effects is equal to the samsaran's level.

Background:
Ichyban Omnisk had everything to be a great magician: resources to attend the finest universities, a quick mind for the studies and a charming smile that could open a lot of doors. But Ichyban was the laziest student the university has ever seen. Up to the current date his professors still try to imagine how me managed to pass all tests cheating with never getting caught, and never setting a foot at the library.

Ichyban’s secret was that the discovered a connection between all kinds of magic and what he lacked in determination to discover unique and personal spells, he flourished in the art of copying and stealing the works of other magicians. Ichyban gained countless enemies with this practice, enough to make him fake his own death, but not before his ultimate con: the creation of the legendary Rubick, the Grand Magus, the one who knows every spell.

Hidden behind a mask and expert in hiding his identity, Ichyban is now ‘dead’, but the destiny of Rubick is a great uncertainty.


Holy crap, I didn't realize how in depth all of the discipline and maneuver stuff can get. I've chosen my gambits and stances and made a start on the maneuvers, but looking at some of the requirements for the later ones, I really want to plan that stuff out further.

I've made a quick pass on gear, but I still have another 2100gp to spend.


Dropping in my application, not done yet but getting close, just wanted to make sure I didn't accidentally miss the deadline. Would have been done sooner but was originally going for a Warlord and saw a lot of common interest in that sort of character so decided to change it up at the last minute.

Cuan is a Human Inquisitor with the Monster Tactician archetype. Should have most stuff done within an hour or two. Just need to finish backstory and work out the nitty gritty of spells+equipment.

If I get picked, I'll have a few questions about everything just to make sure I understand it all, but I think I know enough for now.
