Oooh yes... This is happening. :)


*Waggles fingers excitedly*


Huh I've never read through the rules in Ultimate Combat for organizations and all that. Should be interesting to do this in game. Building your own organization!

I'm here to kick ass and chew bubblegum and I'm all out of bubblegum! :D

Dotting for fun and profit.


I've thought up 3 concepts already:

An oracle with the flame mystery and the covetous curse. She needs fancy jewelry and lots money, and she'll burn everything down that gets in her way. Probably LN or N.

Bolt Ace, focusing on the light or hand crossbow. Trying to play her as a James Bond-type spy, I may dip into Ranger, Rogue or Bard afterward. Definitely LG, unsure of her build after level 5.

Maybe a vigilante could work. Nobleman by day, Crusader of the free by night! ARGH Too many alts!


Dotting for later.

PC Build Requirements
20 Point Buy, but no dump stats!
Races: All core, featured, and uncommon.
Classes: No 3pp!
Traits: Choose one Campaign Trait from the Hell's Rebels Player's Guide
Skills: Refer to the Player's Guide for good suggestions on what skills might be useful!
Max HP first level, roll for HP after that
Avg starting wealth as dictated in the CRB

I'm looking to get us started the week of October 23rd or October 30th, depending on how busy we all are and how far along you get with your PCs.

Let me know if I missed anything!

This post was edited after some discussion with Massee - stats can be under 10 as a result of racials, but please don't purposely dump any. :)


What if your racial stat adjustment drops your stat below 10?
What's 3pp?
And average starting wealth based on your class I assume?

Racials would be included in that too. The other option is 15 point buy without that stat < 10 restriction, but you'll find that it ends up working out about the same except you'll have dumped a stat which may come back to haunt you later.
3pp is third party published materials (not Paizo)
And yes - average starting wealth based on class.


Level 1 PCs, right?

Sovereign Court

Plaguestone ◆ Hell's Rebels (Maps/Slides) (Loot, Tracker, Rumors) ◆

Yup!


How many players are you shooting for?


Venture-Agent, Play-by-Post

A long time ago I came up with something of a paired concept with Eric (who's a favorite PbP bud of mine!) involving a young noblewoman who was cool with the whole Asmodeus thing until it ended up costing her her younger sibling in her family's bid for more power and influence. I may very well still stick with that concept but the actual character mechanics are a little more open (I could see her working as practically any divine/arcane/psychic caster class). Since I apparently love to make things harder on myself by picking classes that get a buddy of some sort, especially cool options for this would be the Spiritualist class or the Spirit Binder wizard archetype :V

Eric's character would be her bodyguard who's along to try and keep her out of trouble (and maybe help steer her onto a better path), hehe.

All that to say, I'm happy to be flexible in what sort of character I make depending on what other folks have in mind!


I went on a real Summoner kick, I know how you feel Ladile. Especially since the Spiritualist is a spooky Unchained Summoner.


Venture-Agent, Play-by-Post

^I love summoners! I've actually got three floating around in PbP - one for a Legendary Planet game, one that's a PFS recreation of the summoner in the Legendary Planet game, and another PFS summoner going for a mounted combat schtick.

But three summoners are probably plenty for now >.>

Also got a PFS spiritualist, too.

Too many little buddies!

We've got 5 total so far: Massee, Chadius, Lady Ladile, Eric Swanson, and Lawrence Smith (once he checks in).
I think I'm going to settle on five players given that APs are built for 4.


Venture-Agent, Play-by-Post

Out of curiosity, what general tone are we going for with the game? Something a bit darker and grittier or more lighthearted (as lighthearted as a revolution can be, anyway)? Either is fine with me but I realize that my character idea mentioned above might be better-suited to a more serious game and so I wanted to check :)

Sovereign Court

Plaguestone ◆ Hell's Rebels (Maps/Slides) (Loot, Tracker, Rumors) ◆

Certainly grittier than a usual GM Red game. There will be your odd ridiculous NPC because that's how I roll, but overall, a darker atmosphere serves the theme and setting better than a light, fluffy one would, so that will be my intention.


I just thought about the summoner archetype, the Devil Impostor. I made a build, but I'll have to tweak the eidolon.

I'm either going with them or the Flame Oracle.


I'll be playing Frankie, or a pretty close facsimile there of. Charismatic unchained rogue.

Another question: Are we still able to do the level 2 rebuild? Just in case there's something we don't like. I'm a really big fan of that PFS option!

Sovereign Court

Plaguestone ◆ Hell's Rebels (Maps/Slides) (Loot, Tracker, Rumors) ◆

Yeah, I'd be fine with that. This is a long adventure and I wouldn't want you guys to hate the PC you're playing because you wish you'd chosen a different build.

Team so far!
chadius: USummoner (Devil Imposter) or Flame Oracle
Massee: URogue


This is Eric (aka Ezren) chiming in here.

I plan on playing Geoffrey Piersym, a human Tactician Fighter and Morvena (Lady Ladile)'s bodyguard.

Feel free to check out his profile HERE.

Sovereign Court

Plaguestone ◆ Hell's Rebels (Maps/Slides) (Loot, Tracker, Rumors) ◆

Looks great Eric! I had a look at Morvena too. Love the backstories.

Could you reset Geoffrey to level 1, his stats to 20 point buy with no dump stats (looks like he may already have this), and his gear to whatever you can purchase for 175gp?

chadius: USummoner (Devil Imposter) or Flame Oracle
Massee: URogue
Eric: Fighter (Tactician)
Ladile: Caster

Grand Lodge

There are more important things to obsess over Like opinions, everybody has one Jack-of-all-trades, master of some

I'm really looking forward to this.

I enjoy playing gish/support PCs. I'd love to play a bard or an investigator, maybe?

Thinking about a devotee of Milani, maybe a halfling with inclinations toward the Bellflower Network?

Viva la revolución!

Larry


What are our frontline plans? I plan to max out UMD for both of my PCs, but my Oracle would be able to use divine tools easily.

My Oracle is low melee damage but will either use Stand Still or Dirty Trick to disable her foes. K. Nobility will be very high.

My Summoner will help serve as a face (lots of Bluff) while his eidolon is pretty much an archer (also with lots of bluff.)


HP: 37/37 l AC: 13, T 12, FF 11 l CMD 14 l F +6, R +5, W +6 l Arcane Reservoir (10/10), Conjurer's Focus (7/7), Consume Spells (3/3) | L1: 5/5, L2: 5/5, L3: 4/4 l Init +2 l Senses: Perception +2 | Female Human Arcanist (Occultist) 7 l Active Conditions:

Posting here with this alias (from the car!) but I'm still noodling over what to make Morv. Wizard is still a possibility (maybe with a Mascot familiar?) but I could go Spiritualist with a tanky spirit if we need the extra oomph up front. Might also give the Medium class a look and see what I can do with it!


I won't be play Frankie exactly, but a character in a similar thought. Considering I don't have access to one in PFS, I'm going with a Kitsune, likely either Unchained Rogue or Slayer focusing on more roguey talents.

So I guess depending on what everyone else does I can add in other skills or abilities. But he'll be a bluffing and disguising fiend. Neither character build will be 'tanky', but both I plan on being mostly melee with decent ranged with a good dex.

URogue has the bonus of getting Dex>Damage, more sneak attack and free trapfinding. Slayer gains access to trapfinding, more hp, BAB, base fort.

Kitsune are still always-available as a PFS race, right? Or did you just mean that you don't currently have one in PFS yet? :)

I understand, though. Human fits Morv fine and makes the most sense but part of me wants to make her a Changeling or Aasimar or something like that since those races aren't normally available in PFS -or- a lot of standard PbP games >.>


Oh I was under the impression they weren't normally always available. (I also don't have one yet...) Either way, changing from a Halfling will help make the character a bit different so I don't lose interest in Frankie 1.0.


Okay, I think I'm going to go with my Flame Oracle, mostly because I haven't played an Oracle before.

Is anyone interested in taking the Lookout feat? Very useful feat if multiple people take the feat?

I love Oracles; they're so versatile and you can have them fill a variety of roles depending on what mystery you choose :)

Okay so that helps me narrow down the direction I want to take Morvena in - almost certainly going Wizard (with a conjuration/summoning focus) or a Spiritualist. Any preference from the rest of you or GM Red on which you'd prefer?


Chad: Cool looking feat, I may be interested in getting that at some point, but not at level 1. Rogues like that nice surprise round!

Morvena: As far as which you choose, doesn't matter to me, whichever you prefer! I really know basically nothing about a spiritualist.

Sovereign Court

Plaguestone ◆ Hell's Rebels (Maps/Slides) (Loot, Tracker, Rumors) ◆

That's a tough choice, Ladile... I really like phantoms and the spiritualist class a whole. What fits Morvena's personality and background more?
If you are really stuck on what to decide, roll a d2? ;)


I'm uhhh...Just throwing a spitball here...

What about multiclassing at some point?


Multiclassing is the devil Bobby!

God dang it...


@Morvena, If you go Spiritualist, you'll have another pet class. I guess it depends if you want to focus more on Arcane or Psychic knowledge. It looks like raw arcane power will be what we're lacking if you go Spiritualist, but then we get another frontliner.

Meh, follow your heart (or flip a coin.)

I have my character mostly stated. I need to buy a ranged weapon for her, probably a hand crossbow. Also I need to figure out her first name and avatar...

It was suggested that I'll be playing this character for a while, so I should make an actual alias for her. Don't play games with me, GM!


Is anyone else going to be able to find magic traps? Is it something we should really have available? The reason I ask is I'm pondering taking an archetype that trades it away so I'd like input. If traps a big part of this AP please warn me Red!

Sovereign Court

Plaguestone ◆ Hell's Rebels (Maps/Slides) (Loot, Tracker, Rumors) ◆

Magic traps are not a big part of the adventure, but they may appear from time to time!

Just an update, work + other PbP stuff has been kicking my butt this week but I'm off today and don't have to be at work until 8p tomorrow evening so I'm hoping I can get some progress made on Morv or even get her finished :)

Sovereign Court

Plaguestone ◆ Hell's Rebels (Maps/Slides) (Loot, Tracker, Rumors) ◆

There's no rush, you've got at least another week to polish up your PC :) Larry's off traveling too, and I expect he won't have much time to create his PC until he gets back.

Aaaaaand here's Morvena's familiar! She should also be complete :)

Went with the wizard path, eh? Now you can tap into UNLIMITED POWER!!!

Yep! Normally I don't like prepared casters as much as I do spontaneous ones but I've not got any wizards in circulation in PbP so I thought I'd give it a try :)

Alright guys, can we firm up a start date? I'd prefer starting on a Friday or Saturday, and given Larry isn't quite back in town yet, that might mean waiting another week or so. Let's say the 27th or 28th? Hell's Rebels Halloween remix?
I can certainly wait until GD6 is over if people are feeling overextended in their posting bandwidth. Just let me know!

I *think* I'll be good to start around the 27th/28th. One of my GMed games should be wrapped up by then and one of my player games should be as well, so that'll free up a little bandwidth on my end :)
