@Ictoo - I'm also a fan of the spiritualist! Heck, I think I'd enjoy that one in just a regular game of PF.

You say that as if this is a highly probable and/or regular occurrence.

Okay just to show that I've made some progress, here's Nixie. I've only gotten the 1st and 6th level builds so far but hopefully they'll give you an idea of what I'm going for. We'll see how well it works in practice but she's going to be a little more utility/stealth-focused although still able to defend herself in a fight. Her Focus Powers as an Occultist should allow her to adapt to a variety of situations such as beefing herself up for a fight, spying, etc. The Kineticist half gives her some ranged and healing capability. She won't be a bruiser, but hopefully she'll be fun :)

I'll probably kick around some other ideas too; I still like the idea of my druid/kineticist (aren't kineticists just awesome, complicated as they are?) and I might go for something more caster/mental-focused at some point too.

No matter how unlikely, I feel it's important to make myself clear in this matter :)

Also, all very tumultuous this side of the pond with the news that Britain is to leave the European Union and Prime Minister Cameron resigning. The US news reporting it?


Venture-Agent, Play-by-Post

Yeah, it's made headlines on our news networks here. I've admittedly not been following things as much as I probably should be since we don't have cable or anything in our household (we just use Netflix/Hulu + YouTube) but I know the repercussions from the decision will be huge.


Bad decision. Fuelled by xenophobia and bigotry. There's an alarming rise of right wing politics in Europe


If a ghost or demon were to come near me you would have to help, I can't deal with that on my own. I have to try and pass it off somehow, You would do exactly the same.

Sad day for the UK and Europe. It really does seem to be uneducated voters buttered up with false promises. (I Know people who have ridiculous reasons for voting out)

On a lighter note.. I need to just not think about it anymore. LL! I desperately want to like kineticists but i just can't see a way to make them competitive damage wise while also adding something to the party skill wise. I feel i'm not understanding them but they seem to just sit on the wrong side of usefull, I do look forward to you proving me wrong.


Kineticists won't do as much damage as archers - but then no one does.

I love the idea of them and like the utility they bring with some of their powers. They remind me of alchemists in some ways but overall it's the burn mechanic that I just hate. I think the 3.5 Warlock was a much better implementation of the same idea.

I don't know why they didn't go for something like warlock + blast modifications every couple of levels + infusions with spontaneous spellcasting progression.


Venture-Agent, Play-by-Post

I like the idea of them too and was one of many who had the reaction of "OMG BENDERS, YES!" when they were added to the class roster. No experience playing them myself and the ones I've seen in action have all been lowbie games (1st-5th level or so). One thing I do like is that each of the elements I've seen in play (uh...fire, earth, water, and aether I think) all seem to have their own individual 'feel'. Anyhoo, I guess we'll see how just useful they turn out to be (and don't forget that Midnight is also part Kineticist unless Fiendish decides on a different character) :)


Yes I agree with you there, every element seems to not only feel different but actually play differently which is a great job in terms of class design.

Let's try and get some characters together this week?


retired (playtest completed)

What level are were making these new characters again? Is it 6? I recall seeing level 7 mentioned as well. I need direction! =)


Let's go 6 again!


Venture-Agent, Play-by-Post

I've got my Kineticist/Occultist done at 1st and 6th level and I also whipped up a Bloodrager/Vigilante that's much more of a beatstick for those levels; will post it when I get home from work tonight :)

Also I realize that I forgot my Starting Boon(s) for both characters but I was sorta having some trouble deciding anyway; will get those added to the mix tomorrow probably as well as hopefully cleaning up both profiles and adding some links for all the different abilities for ease of reference.


Looks awesome LL. What's the inspiration behind her?

Only things I can see is missing are a Starting Boon, just noting the fact she is a mutant, your ballistic AC is 13 I think (half the armor bonus) and I don't think you have your automatic bonus progression active...?


Venture-Agent, Play-by-Post

No specific inspiration aside from wanting to make a magical girl, hehe. Thanks for reminding me about the ABP, will get that sorted later tonight as well!


retired (playtest completed)

Man. Coming up for a decent build for this guy is tricksy.
At first, I was looking at combining unchained monk with ninja, but then I realized that the ki pool wouldn't benefit from both the wisdom and charisma modifiers, only one or the other.

So then I was just looking at ninja, and it seems close, but I can't figure a way to get him access to dimension door through anything other than a cloak of the mountebank, and that's less than ideal.

So now I'm looking at unchained monk again, sprinkling the weapon adept archetype on top if that's legal, and then pairing it with swashbuckler. I feel like this is really close to what I'm looking for.

My home computer crashed after I got back from my trip (I'm thinking it's either the processor or the motherboard, but either way I'll wind up having to replace both, which stinks), so I'm on my little ASUS tablet. It's great for typing in a word processor or popping a post up on paizo, but it's tough to work off of when you need to reference 8 separate tabs and a pdf =P. Regardless, I'll try and get Wurt here put together across the next couple of evenings!


I like the look of that LL Very interesting. I'm Still finishing up my guys I'll make sure to post him tonight and see what you all think.


Venture-Agent, Play-by-Post

Since my hammer-fighter has received a bit more interest I think I'll go with her once we're ready to run another combat. Here's Concussion (name still subject to change) and I think I've addressed the things that I was missing (starting boon, ABP, etc.). I'll get a profile for her familiar up sometime tomorrow but since I don't anticipate it really being a player as far as combat goes I'm not in as big of a hurry with it.

@Wurt - Looking forward to seeing what you come up with! Also, nice name :P

@Ictoo - Also looking forward to seeing what you come up with!


Wurt gonna have a codename?


retired (playtest completed)

Duskcreeper? Eveningslitherer? Predawnwormer?

Maybe just Bamf?


Lol my bosses' name, or nickname based on his surname anyway, is Bamfs


retired (playtest completed)

I think I've got Wurt mostly put together now. Wound up going with Ninja/Swashbuckler.

Monk was proving too cumbersome to tweak and adjust and I still wouldn't have access to abundant step. Felt like the better solution was ninja's vanishing trick (swift action invisibility) paired with a base speed of 40 (which I can pump further to 60 with a ki point) to simulate his popping up all over the place.

It's not the most focused, gonzo-combat build I've ever made. Far from it, given the fact I dropped 2 feats into weapon focus and slashing grace just so he could swing a longsword (harkening back to his days leading Excalibur) =D

I did drop nearly all his starting funds on a cape of the mountebank though. Normally, it seems to be frowned upon to spend so much on just one item, but a once-a-day dimension door didn't seem all that outrageous to me. If that's no bueno, there's nothing else I can think worth getting so I guess he'll just save up for a cape later!

In the end, we've got a prehensile-tailed acrobat (+20 acrobatics skill) who swings a magic longsword (+14 to hit, +9 damage), who can vanish from view and reappear up to 60ft away a handful of times/day. Seems pretty close to me!


Venture-Agent, Play-by-Post

Dumb question, but do we need to kit ourselves out with a bunch of gear too? I didn't see anything about wealth (might've overlooked it though) so I only gave Concussion some armor and her hammer for the trial run.


retired (playtest completed)

Yeah, I wasn't sure how to come up with Resources so I just went with standard WBL gold.


I think we also get half WBL but with ABP we can think outside the box more on what to buy.


retired (playtest completed)

Oh dang! I think you're right about it being half WBL. Well then. RIP cape of the mountebank. We hardly knew ye. Waa waa waaaah.


So I'm 99% done with my second attempt, however my time has been stolen due to character research leading to my finding Marvel puzzle quest.

Honestly, don't play as it will be midnight before you know it! Fun though :P

Should finish fluff and post tonight!

Iirc at 6th level we have 8k to spend...


Well I pretty much lost my mind yesterday when this happened....

Little Wales are performing miracles in Euro 2016 and what a night in celebration it was last night. Absolutely amazing! :D

#TogetherStronger


Anywho..... back to this.

And because of Automatic Bonus Progression you get half wealth by level. So you don't need to buy that magic hammer LL, by that level it would already be +1

Rules are HERE

What I like best about ABP is that items that produce single ability boost like Belts of Giant Strength don't exist because you can boost physical abilities as one of the boons you get at level 7 anyway. Although you only get half the wealth by level, it still encourages people to buy those cool magic items you don't see that often because people are always too anxious to get the 'big five.' Plus in this game whether those items are fluffed as magic, natural abilities (someone trying to replicate a hero with super senses might buy Eyes of the Eagle but just describe them as their natural extra sensory perception) or technology.


Venture-Agent, Play-by-Post

Actually I didn't make it magic hehe, I just bought it; ABP should be factored in on Concussion's latest stats already.

I'm definitely a big fan of ABP though for the exact reasons you listed above; the 'Big 6' as I see them called on the forums are expected upgrades but booooooring. It's nice to be able to buy 'fun' items for a change :)


aka Razor

Agree wholeheartedly about ABP :)

Ok so Laura is ready!

Formula Book:
2: Ironskin, Protection from arrows, Resist Energy
1: Cure Light Wounds, Endure Elements, Expeditious Retreat, Shield

SPECIAL ABILITIES
Skilled: +2 racial bonus to Acrobatics and Perception

Spell-Like Ability: jump 1/day

Change Shape (Su): A skinwalker can change shape into a bestial form as a standard action. In bestial form, a skinwalker gains a +2 racial bonus to Charisma. While in this form, a skinwalker also takes on an animalistic feature that provides a special effect. Each time a skinwalker assumes bestial form, she can choose to gain one of the following features: Bite attack that deals 1d6 points of damage, 2 claw attacks that each deal 1d4 points of damage, +10-foot racial bonus to base speed, See in darkness.

The racial ability score bonus and additional feature last as long as the skinwalker remains in that form, and a skinwalker can remain in bestial form for as long as she wants. A skinwalker can return to her humanoid form as a swift action. To change forms and gain a different benefit, a skinwalker must first return to her humanoid form then use her shapechange ability again.

Trapfinding: An unchained rogue adds 1/2 her level on Perception checks to locate traps and on Disable Device checks (minimum +1). An unchained rogue can use Disable Device to disarm magic traps.

Finesse Training: At 1st level, an unchained rogue gains Weapon Finesse as a bonus feat. At 3rd level, one type of weapon is picked (Natural attack), can now add dex mod to damage.

Sneak Attack: 6d6 (3d6 UC rogue + 3d6 Vivi)

Evasion: At 2nd level, a rogue can avoid even magical and unusual attacks with great agility. If she succeeds at a Reflex saving throw against an attack that normally deals half damage on a successful save, she instead takes no damage. Evasion can be used only if the rogue is wearing light armor or no armor. A helpless rogue does not gain the benefit of evasion.

2 Rogue Talent: Minor magic: Acid splash (at will)
4 Rogue Talent: Major magic: Vanish (3/day) CL 6
6 Rogue Talent: Surprise attack (always considers opponents flat-footed in surprise round)

Debilitating Injury

Danger Sense +2: a rogue gains a bonus on Reflex saves to avoid traps and a dodge bonus to AC against attacks made by traps. In addition, she gains a bonus on Perception checks to avoid being surprised by a foe.

Uncanny dodge: At 4th level, a rogue can react to danger before her senses would normally allow her to do so. She cannot be caught flat-footed, nor does she lose her Dexterity bonus to AC if the attacker is invisible. She still loses her Dexterity bonus to AC if immobilized. A rogue with this ability can still lose her Dexterity bonus to AC if an opponent successfully uses the feint action against her.

Rogue's Edge: (Perception) You remain alert to sounds even in your sleep, and the normal DC increase to Perception checks when you are sleeping is halved. The distance modifier on the DC of Perception checks you attempt is reduced to +1 per 20 feet

Alchemy: <Can create stuff that's not overly relevant to this>

Mutagen: 1 hour to brew, 1 dose at a time. Standard action to drink: +4 alchemical bonus to DEX, STR or CON, +2 bonus to NA for 10 mins/level. -2 penalty to mental score during this time.

Poison Use

Improved Beastform Mutagen: a beastmorph’s mutagen grants him additional abilities and options. The alchemist gains his choice of two of these abilities (which persist as long as the mutagen) climb 30 feet, fly 30 feet (average maneuverability), swim 30 feet, darkvision 60 feet, low-light vision, and scent. He may select two different abilities each time he creates a mutagen.

Cruel Anatomist: At 3rd level, a vivisectionist may use his Knowledge (nature) skill bonus in place of his Heal skill bonus.

Discovery: Bleeding Attack (Ex): A rogue with this ability can cause living opponents to bleed by hitting them with a sneak attack. This attack causes the target to take 1 additional point of damage each round for each die of the rogue's sneak attack (e.g., 4d6 equals 4 points of bleed). Bleeding creatures take that amount of damage every round at the start of each of their turns. The bleeding can be stopped by a DC 15 Heal check or the application of any effect that heals hit point damage.

Special: Bleeding damage from this ability does not stack with itself. Bleeding damage bypasses any damage reduction the creature might possess.

Discovery: Spontaneous Healing: The alchemist gains the ability to heal from wounds rapidly. As a free action once per round, he can heal 5 hit points as if he had the fast healing ability. He can heal 5 hit points per day in this manner for every 2 alchemist levels he possesses. If the alchemist falls unconscious because of hit point damage and he still has healing available from this ability, the ability activates automatically each round until he is conscious again or the ability is depleted for the day.

Discovery: Healing Touch: The alchemist gains the ability to heal other creatures. As a standard action, he may touch a creature and apply 1 round’s effect of his spontaneous healing discovery to that creature; this counts toward his spontaneous healing limit for the day. The alchemist’s daily limit for hit points healed by spontaneous healing increases to 5 × his alchemist level. This ability only functions if the target is the same type of creature (humanoid, undead, and so on) as the alchemist.

Trait: Color thief (+2 to stealth checks)
Trait: Alchemical Prodigy (your alchemist level is considered 1 higher when calculating the duration of your extracts)
starting boon: Physical perfection 2: +10 ft movement, +2 DEX for Dex-based skills
FEAT (1): Endurance

Whilst she typically goes barefoot, Laura has raised black metal patterns embedded in her feet. These are capable of drawing energy or matter from the ground to replenish the living metal inhabiting her body, and in turn having it repair any damage she has suffered.

(As a move action, she can stand still and gains fast healing 1 and a +4 bonus to CMD to resist bull rush, reposition and trip combat maneuver attempts. These effects end if she moves or is moved, knocked prone, or rendered unconscious.)

Resource Points - 0

Background:

Laura was the unfortunate victim of a cabal of villains called 'The Cabal', part of one of their many experiments to create a living weapon. When her mutant gift of healing was identified by genetic testing carried out by a Cabal doctor, her parents soon met with grim ends, and Laura entered the system. Adopted quickly by a Cabal family, she was then subjected to years of experimentation and conditioning as the sought to groom the most lethal assassin they could. For years she was kept in a spartan room, allowed out only to train or be tested. She was kept docile through a combination of drugs and behavioural conditioning, teaching her to obey at all times. As she grew older she was allowed outside, to become familiar with the world, but always under strict control.

Her healing factor proved useful as they decided to enhance her further, subjecting her to injections of a reactive metal composite, which was able to be controlled at a neural level, both consciously and subconsciously. Unfortunately for the Cabal, though the previous 22 attempts with others had failed and the bonding with Laura was a success, one of the first things that happened was that the metal seemed to reset her system as it flowed through her body, and it wiped out the chemical and mental conditioning. Her escape cost the lives of the entire research team, and she used her training to destroy the facility she had been raised in, erasing all the data and backups, refusing to allow what had happened to her to be used on another person.

Since then she wandered, alone and hurting as she didn't feel human, or that anyone good should be near her. Until eventually she met a hero who saw through all that, and refused to leave her, even when she stabbed him. To her surprise he too had a healing power, and had done things in his past he was not proud of. He took her in, showing her a kindness she had never known before, paving the way to follow in his footsteps trying to atone. When he died, she decided to join a superteam to do some good. She took the name Razor to honour her dead mentor.

Appearance and Personality:

Laura is quiet and introverted, tightly controlled. She is still adjusting to the world, and can be highly defensive at times. But she does realise she has these traits and is working towards being more 'sociable'.

She typically wears dark clothes, the better to blend in. Tight black trousers and a top show a lack of fashion sense, or perhaps botheredness, one distinguishing feature is that she always goes barefoot. The metal on her feet making it uncomfortable and impractical to wear proper footwear.

Flavour Notes:

The 'alchemy' of the character is carried out entirely by the living metal nanotech inhabiting her body. It creates and stores the mutagen to give its host body a boost when needed, it creates metal claws, acidic spittle, alters eye structure, changes skin coloration and repairs damage, all as needed.


Laura, love the build. I'm pretty sure though that two if the same features from different classes don't stack in gestalt I.e. Your sneak would still be 3d6 and not 6d6


aka Razor

Oh fiddlesticks, just re-read the gestalt guidelines and can see what you mean.

>.<

On the plus side, thanks for your comment :)

Think I will give her one more overhaul in that case, as the rogue was only really there for the sneaky stuff plus SA. So she could do with a bit more durability; barbarian, fighter or ranger would give more hp and BAB, and still allow sneakiness ;)

She shouldn't take long to polish so happy to start another combat scenario when everyone else is :)

I think Concussion is pretty much done as far as mechanics go; I'll fill in the background and such as I can!

Also, Happy 4th (if you're in the US) and Happy Monday (if you're the rest of the world)! :)


Really like the look of these builds guys, really getting into the spirit of things :)

Looking like an all mutant team at the moment.


Also lots of ninjas and rogues!


Now I feel my slayer/Ninja is just adding to that!


aka Razor

:O

I... I think I've created a monster... :s

Swapped out the rogue for a ranger, can't wait to see how she does in a skirmish!

So JZ... who's the lucky villain this time!?

They'll have to contend with the super team of mutants known only as... 'The Just Us League' 'Seppuku Squad!' X-treme... erm... 'The Spirits of Heroes Past'!? Name picking NOT a strong suit here >.< Help me other players!!!

So forgot to say, DC and Marvel aside, I hope you gents and lady are familiar with Wildstorm and the other indy publishers. In particular I recommend 'Planetary', also 'The Authority'. Still within the Marvel umbrella, I have a soft spot for 'Runaways' too :)


Venture-Agent, Play-by-Post

^ This is where I shock and dismay the other players and GM by admitting that I actually don't know a great deal about superheroes beyond some of the big ones like Superman, Spiderman, etc. But my gaming group did play some Champions years ago and I thought it was a lot of fun >.>

Is there a good wiki or something I can reference as needed so my character won't come off as having lived under a rock for years? :3


retired (playtest completed)

I struggle with team names too =)

I always wind up going with <Adjective> <Noun> constructions like "Scarlet Watch" or "Cobalt Guard" or "Burning Fist". And that's just for adventuring parties! Superhero teams is even more difficult!


LL, I will write up a solid backstory that references all the major events you need to know for where and when this game is set. It might be lengthy but I'll try to keep it succinct.

You don't need to know the ins and outs of the Marvel universe anyway, just be familiar with some of the bigger players and events.


Venture-Agent, Play-by-Post

Okay cool, as long as I've got a name or a term I can read up on it and go from there :)


Yeah there's no wiki as such that I can point you to because this is going to reference both movie, TV and comics.

If you aren't a huge superhero nut I would still highly recommend the Netflix marvel series Daredevil and Jessica Jones. Both are superb


Venture-Agent, Play-by-Post

Thanks for the recommendation, will definitely check it out! I've seen some of the more recent films (Iron Man, Thor, Guardians of the Galaxy, etc.) but not all of them; will have to remedy that as well :)


Captain America: Winter Solider and Civil War. Absolutely amazing.


Once Ictoo has his character together I'll rustle up a scenario and we can check these guys out.

After that I'll probably look to start a game in the next couple of weeks if your schedules allow.


Venture-Agent, Play-by-Post

Sounds like a plan to me :)


aka Razor

Seconded :)


Next up, you'll be facing Klaw!


Klaw!!!

So I've put together an Iron Fist type Martial artist. He's a mix of Monk and Magus, Really going for acrobatics and pulling off some amazing jumps and climbs. While I can get access to fly from Magus I'm really thinking of not going for it or maybe re flavouring it as he is just really fast on his feet, leaping about.

Please let me know what you think, can't wait to test drive him... I also would like to idea on a name :)

ALSO! No traits or starting boons as I wasn't sure what to take their all really good. I'm thinking .. Tough as Hell and one of the Physical Perfection.

ALSO.1! Path of War Manoeuvres and Spellcasting progression are off the table now correct? Since their still in the doc wasn't sure if it just wasn't updated.
