One concern, the character classes are: Monk, Oracle, Fighter, Inquisitor, Cleric, Paladin. There is no arcane. Thoughts?

Silver Crusade

Male Celestial Cleric of Myself 10/Radiant Servant of Me 10

It happens. The oracle and cleric should be able to manage.

Yep. Xion at least is built for smashy, but she's still a full caster. And we've got a melee-heavy party; honestly we may just destroy most things quickly enough that we don't need the extra combat control.

But we'll see =) An arcanist-less party seems like an interesting experiment anyway.

Silver Crusade

Male Celestial Cleric of Myself 10/Radiant Servant of Me 10

Yeah, Cassander is built for smashy, too. Is the inquisitor smashy?

Part of me is wondering if I should have gone celestial bloodline sorcerer, but I am liking what I have.

Yeah, looks like it.


Well, and if arcane is problematic, the casters can focus on dispelling to shut them down until they can smash him, I guess. :) It's completely up to you guys, but I thought it worth mentioning!


Orthos' Xion and Celestial Healer's Cassander both have "Touched by Divinity". I don't know the details yet of why, but you should have the same god - and right now CH has chosen Iomedae and Orthos has Ragathiel.

Is either of these able to modify their character a bit to choose the same god? There are hints in the first issue that this will become important.

And given the few details I have on Treppa's plan to be a paladin, chances are she's going to choose Child of the Crusade as well, so Treppa, keep in mind you should be, somehow, related to Mr Shiny's Vitalia and Scint's Tasnim.

I can change Xion's trait to Stolen Fury with a little rewriting - have the hag get nabbed by the cultists before dropping her off, Xion survives the ensuing ritual while her mother does not. That also could be a source for her Haunted curse, if the GM feels so inclined - a side-effect of the ritual caused spirits of the battlefield to be attracted to her, resulting in the effects of the Oracle curse.

She's going to dual-path Hierophant and Champion so either trait works, and it doesn't require either of us to change patrons.

(Now I just need to find a Combat Maneuver worth using throughout the whole game.... ;D )

If Treppa takes Child of the Crusade, that would make all but CH's character members of the same extended family - Tasnim and Xion are already cousins.

If it's really necessary, I could rebuild Tasnim as an arcanist. Plenty of classes I've not yet tried.

Sovereign Court

No arcanist is necessary. :) But nobody at all volunteered an arcanist, so I obviously couldn't choose one. I thought I'd bring it to everyone's attention in case it escaped anyone's notice and it concerned them.

Orthos, that would be great, if it doesn't interfere too much with your character. As for combat maneuvers...hm. My guess would be the best is dirty trick.

Shadow Lodge

N/A Entropic Axiomite Doodler 1/Author 5/Talespinner 7/Ad-Lib Artist 2/Worldbuilder 5

I was thinking the same.

Backstory alterations done and trait changed.

Sovereign Court

Female Human Level 4 Bard

Lamontius, would you be okay with escaping from the same ritual as Xion? I know in the trait it says you maintain a relationship with the other sacrifices, but as Xion was an infant, carried off, I think it's still workable. It would mean that there was a hag and her infant at the ritual as well, and as Xion wouldn't remember anything, you could still decide what happened, as long as the hag ended up dead, and the infant not only didn't, but got carried off by a group of knights.

You would be able to recognize the woman as the child you would have seen at the sacrifice rather easily, because of her unusual coloring and mismatched eyes.

any objections? Thoughts?

Totally fine with it. The Red Penitent is going to take great joy in heralding the coming of such a divine band of heroes to all who would hear him, so it would feed into his proclamations even further that the path of his life has brought him into contact with one or more of them far before his journey to Kenabres.


Male Aasimar (Angel-blooded) Cleric 1 {HP 5/10}

Good to go.


Mr. Shiny, I thought Vitalia had been mentioned as beling related to Tasnim, but now I'm not seeing that anywhere. Am I missing it on someone's sheet? As both of you have the "Child of the Crusade" campaign trait, you have to be related, even if distantly.


male human thread person 8

Also, on the subject of Arcane, while I'm perfectly fine proceeding without one, I'd also be happy to switch over to an arcane caster if the group and/or our GM feels it would help the campaign.

I currently am playing a Witch in preparation for Bonekeep pt. 2 at a Con this month as well as my Conjuration Wizard in my RotRL home game, so could whip something up real quick and have a fair handle of how to play it.

Just a thought, since I'm quite happy with the Red Penitent, as-is.


Well, I only have the first book, so I can't tell you far into the future what the necessity of an arcane caster is. Up front at low levels, number of beaters you have will definitely make short work of many obstacles, and the healing you'll have access to will be able to keep you going. The divine casters you have should, at higher levels, where the lack of arcane might begin to hurt you, be able to at least use dispel to keep them under control until the beaters run up and smack things to death. Hopefully. <evil GM grin />

I'm in favor of letting people play waht they want to play. I just wanted to bring up the lack of arcane because I'm auditing the characters anyway, and I thought the players are less likely to have kept track themselves. You're also missing a rogue, but the inquisitor and monk should be able to cover a good amount of that ground as needed.

Silver Crusade

Male Celestial Cleric of Myself 10/Radiant Servant of Me 10

I'm in favor of keeping things as they are. I find it unlikely that that gap will create too many situations we can't handle. If the lack of an arcane character is truly disastrous, then someone will wind up dead, and then they can roll up an arcane character if they want.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Exactly.

Moohaha.


male human thread person 8

Hah, good point, CH.
Until then, I will grapple all the things.

Shouldn't be too hard to justify. Tasnim's mother and Xion's father are two of an as yet unspecified but large number of siblings; her father's a half-orc (She's really more quarter-orc), so half of his family is also available to use for that. Distant cousins is super easy.


I would like to use it for the opening scene.

And I actually do need Treppa's character mechanically finished before we can begin...


Shiny? Treppa? Bueller? :)


male human thread person 8

Jess, this may have just been me derping in my normal fashion, but I did not know you had started the discussion section for almost two days, as I was still checking the Recruitment thread for further information. When I would check it and saw no further posts, I just shrugged and moved on...until it occurred to me to click on the other tabs in the campaign, here


Gah! Will get on it right away. Thanks for the prod, DSX.

Bueller...? Bueller...? Bueller...?


Human paladin of Vildeis with the 'Exposed to Awfulness' trait. Works perfectly with Vildeis and sets me on the Guardian mythic path.

gold: 5d6 ⇒ (6, 4, 1, 6, 4) = 21*10=210 gp

So are you filled up on PC's?

I am ready.

Technically. Need to write down the backstory.

Well, yes, but Mr. Shiny has not been active in the discussion thread yet. I would like to get started, however, asap. If you would like to be considered in reserve, we'll see if Mr. Shiny has something that prevents him from playing.


Male Human (Kellid) Monk 1 [ HP: 14/14 | AC:15 | T:14 | FF:14 ] (Grappled - AC:13, T:12, FF:13)

Ready!


...and here we...GO!!!!

I didn't mention anything--I've been holding off on writing my character's back-story, since that's a big factor in this AP, and I wanted to get more information from you and the other players.


I must have gotten confused, then. :) Vitalia has to be, somehow, related to Tasnim, due to you sharing the same trait. It doesn't have to be a super close relationship, but it can be if you want to work that out. Tasnim and Xion are already cousins.


My trait is different from everyone else's, but should my backstory still be connected to somebody in the party?


there's no need. If you wish you, you may be. The Traits have bearing on your mythic progression (no surprise, given there's a mythic path associated with each), so those with the same trait have to have something in common. That's all!


Female Human Fighter 1

Backstory is done: Vitalia's grandfather was the brother of Xion and Tasnim's grandmother.

Liberty's Edge

Hmmm... Treppa and I seem to have independently made somewhat similar characters...


We did? Wups. Nobody else had my trait nor deity nor Mythic path. But hey - we have a kind of connection now. It'll add to the party cohesion.

Funny how they have two scar-faced female avatars.

Liberty's Edge

Doubly weird since I've been playing variations on this character for a couple years now.


I pretty much took it from the trait and from her deity. Man, that deity is perfect for your characters.

I didn't step on your toes, did I? I think our characters will work well together and we usually do well in RP interactions.

Not at all. This party seems like it's going to fit together well. Though, I'm a bit stuck as to how I'm going to introduce my character.


you've got all morning to play with. Maybe you go to the plaza early with the rest of the family. Maybe you show up after everyone else, just barely squeezing in in time? Maybe they don't know you, and you have stories of them and try to introduce yourself?

Maybe the easiest thing is decide whether Vitalia is close to her family, distantly aware of them, or introducing herself for the first time. Any of those can help guide where you think she will be at the beginning here.

and if there's anything you want to do with your character that morning, let me know. Purchases can be made, sights can be seen, etc.

:)

Shall we wait to proceed until everyone has made their introductory post and you've had a chance to interact with them?


Male Human (Kellid) Monk 1 [ HP: 14/14 | AC:15 | T:14 | FF:14 ] (Grappled - AC:13, T:12, FF:13)

yep, figured I'd wait on a 2nd post until Shiny has gotten in the mix


Shiny, do you want me to just throw you into the mix?

I don't mind you posting, Treppa, but I'm trying not to step on too many toes, even though the beginning can be a bit railroad-y.

Especially if you want to purchase anything or if there are any interactions you'd like to have with people/events before entering Clydwell Plaza - there's no chance of awkwardness there.

Sure, though I don't mean to cause trouble. I've been slightly swamped on my end (illustration CFH, plus a giant stack of job applications), though that should be done in the next day or so, which will free up more of my mental capacity for game stuff.


The big question is, do you wish to have Vitalia do anything that morning during hte lead up to the festival? Otherwise I can just have you in the large family group, ready to go.

I'm guessing she'd probably just be with the large group.
