Seeking 4 to 6 characters for the first installment of this AP. If things go well, we may continue to the further installments.

My personal preferences are 80/20 combat/RP. I've DM'ed a lot, and some on PBP. I tend to post every day on weekdays, and would appreciate it if the players would also try. But, I do understand that RL gets in the way, sometimes. That said, I will DMBot a PC if it has been more than 24 hours (Sunday through Thursday), and it is holding up resolution of an encounter.


  • Core races
  • No 3PP, Paizo only.
  • 1st level
  • 15 pt buy. Nothing higher than 18. Nothing lower than 7
  • Average wealth

I will attempt to make choices on June 14th.


Is there a players guide to this? I could only find The Pathfinder Adventure Path

Sovereign Court

in case you're seeking players.

this link should help.
Recruit Players for AP here!!

You can always contact those players and send them a copy of your rules.

Player's Guide

Also, each player can have have two traits.


Sanniya has been waiting for a Legacy of Fire game. She'll need to be turned down from 20 to 15, but that shouldn't be too big a deal. She's an alchemist and a slave looking for freedom. I'll work on tuning her backstory (which is really an outline at the moment, and get her to a 15 point buy.

EDIT: And she's converted down.


Having read the players guide I am certainly interested, I am currently contemplating a wizard having travelled to Katapesh trying to win the love of a woman.


Chiming in, as I've been dying to play this one!

He'll need some tweaking to get him to specs, but I present a dwarf ranger.


I'm interested - I'll be putting together a dervish dancer bard, I think, tying in through the Reclaiming Your Roots campaign trait (used to live in Kelmerane, fled its destruction, coming back to find out more). I'll have her listed soon.

well... I thought I would never see this AP again being offered.

here is my submission..

been looking for a legacy of fire for nearly 2 years.

I may switch to unchained rogue though

Paizo has a lot of material available that is not in the core books but is specific to Golarion and in paperback form (plus PDF & d20pferd). Am I correct to assume that material is available for use?


All right, this is Rennaivx with my dervish dancer bard Izura Selenesh for consideration. Everything is completed except for skills and possible extension of the backstory; those will be completed soon. The basic bones of her backstory and appearance are there.


Would like to present a human desert druid with the Gnoll killer campaign trait...

Reta mem Sota:
Reta mem Sota was born a Badawi prince. Fierce and prideful, his people raided and fought with their nomadic neighbours, and traded and intermingled with the Janni of the deepest desert. They brooked no insult and took their fill from those weaker than them, living life in the harsh sand-swept plains of southern Katepesh to the fullest. And so it was until Reta’s people met ones stronger and fiercer than they. In a rocky canyon they were ambushed and overrun by gnolls in greater number than had ever gathered before.

Left for dead, Reta wandered the desert alone for many moons. He would have died many times, but the spirits of the sands called to him on the scorching wind and taught him their secrets – the secrets of the viper, the vulture, and the scorpion.

For a time the proud Badawi prince was fuelled by vengeance. He trailed gnoll bands, living in their shadows, and exacting blood for his fallen people from stragglers and cast offs. In time he learned that the ones who murdered his people followed one known as the Carrion King.

But along the way, the “Prince of Nothing,” as he mockingly referred to himself, grew weary of vengeance. The blistering sun burned the hate from him. The blowing sand scoured away his boastful ways, and the cold nights of solitude cooled his wrath.

Or so he thought. When a caravaner named Garaval approached him with the intent of taking back a village sacked by gnolls pledged to none other than the Carrion King, Reta pledges his loyalty on the spot in return for the chance to bring peace to his murdered people.

Crunchy profile to follow.


Thinking of making an illegitimate son who was sold into slavery as a gladiator. Ugly, hunchbacked and a bit dim. Fighter

Be careful about the d20pfsrd information. Make sure it derives from a Paizo source.

Description:Noonan is a strongly built young man whose back is twisted by a hunch that shaves height off what would be an impressive frame. His gnarled limbs and big hands are heavily callused, his hair is an unkempt mop and he also wears a scraggly beard.

Noonan's mother was the daughter of a minor merchant who dallied with a guardsman as entertainment and became pregnant. When Noonan was born, her father declared his deformity a sign that the gods were angry with her actions and while he did not banish her from the house, he made sure her son was sent to an orphanage as soon as possible.
Noonan was an unwanted child, and while his strength ensured that bullies kept his distance he was never chosen by anyone for anything except a slaver who bought him for a handful of coin with other rejected children. Noonan was sent off to be a gladiator due to his strong frame and was considered a humorous curiosity due to his deformity. Sold off to a caravan that is traveling the wastes, Noonan once again aheads off into an unknown future.

Dark Archive

Bummer about the core races. I would have loved to play a Suli in this one.

I recommend Archives of Nethys over d20pfsrd as it only contains Paizo material.


I Davian Carter proudly step forward as a newly confirmed member of the Pathfinder Society.

Unchained Rogue CN, TWF, with ranged backup

Full character background and information on Profile page


May i join?


I didn't realize how popular this would be.

Therefore, I am changing the point at which I will choose the party.

The deadline will be midnight (GMT -5 {which corresponds to eastern time in the USA}) this Wednesday, June 10th.

Please get your "crunch" in order by then.

TDM


Here is what we have, so far:

== Melee
* {Andrea1}, Fighter??
* Noonan?, Fighter

== Ranged
* Sanniya, Alchemist
* Thorgrund, Ranger

== Arcane

== Divine
* Reta, Druid (crunch?)

== Utility
* Izura, Dervish dancer bard
* Bahram, Rogue
* Davian, Rogue

If you disagree with my categories, let me know where you want your character to be. I am more likely to choose a rounded out party (probably of six), but I am perfectly happy to run this with a relatively unbalanced party.

TDM


Though most of her damage is going to be ranged, and she's not a traditional caster, I'd actually say Sanniya's arcane. She's got "spells" and buffs, even if they're just for her at the moment. Just my thoughts, and you can categorize her however you'd like to.


If we're light on arcane, I've been wanting to try a witch lately...I can have one put together by this afternoon. She'd be a buffer/debuffer.


Bahram is just as classified.. utility.

traps, scouting, support, woo the girls, whatever.


I'm interested in this campaign as well. It looks like there aren't any arcane casters yet. I'll try putting together a wizard and posting it tonight.

Thorgrund is more of a melee fighter, specializing in Axe and Board two-weapon fighting. He will have a crossbow, but he's definitely one to wade into the thick of battle!


So nice to see this taking shape!

Can we have a link to PbP you have GMed before to have a better glimpse on the expected playing style?

Thanks in advance TechnoDM!


Oh hey, Noonan is my alt I will be using for the adventure


Hello Sir,

During our wait I have spoken with the others who are here to apply for this endeavor. Our skills and area of expertise has been discussed and it appears as though we have a distinct lack of ranged ability among us. I can help you out in that manner. I have a friend, someone who took their confirmation test with me for the Pathfinder Society. I have sent word to him that his skills would be ever useful for a trip such as this. He should be making his appearance later today but for now I shall pass my application position on to him. and bid you all farewell.

Davian with a twist of his cloak attempts to make a dramatic exit back into the shadows thus officially withdrawing his application from this endeavor.

Steath: 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (10) + 9 = 19

Davian slips back into the shadows and stealthily walks out the door.

I will be putting together a Ranger to attempt to fulfill the ranged slot that has seemed to find itself empty lol. I'll post him later this afternoon.

That was on mythweavers.com, not here on these boards. And, it was years ago.

A willowy Keleshite woman with beaded dreadlocks, plain white robes, and a metal collar approaches the group, bowing her head as she comes near. "I've been sent to aid you in retaking Kelmarane - I hope I can be of assistance." A pale-colored desert fox circles her feet, and she stoops down and scoops the animal into her arms, caressing it lovingly as she rises.

This is Rennaivx with a witch for consideration, since we haven't had many arcane characters submitted so far. She's focused on debuffing so far, but will probably pick up the healing hex as well to be able to act as backup healing if necessary. Her backstory and crunch are in her profile. I'm perfectly happy to play either Anaara or Izura, whichever will be more useful for the party.


A tall thinner man enters the room

Hello everyone,

My name is Belros Silverkin. I received word from my good friend Davian Carter that you all may be in need of some range abilities of shall we say, the physical sort?

Here is my ranger the stat block is set and I will flesh out the background later on today. Davian will not be included in this pbp in favor of this ranger. I wanted to give everyone the best shot possible to be included and saw we needed some physical dmg ranged in the mix


Dot


I'd like to submit Horum here.
He started a Legacy of Fire campaign that fizzled very quickly.
I've reset him to 15 point buy.


My half-orc illusionist wizard's character sheet is complete. I just need to finalize a backstory.


Dotting while I work something up.


Backstory done.:
Morrigan never knew her parents or where she came from. She was raised by an underground cult of Zon-Kuthon and who shared nothing of her past with her. The cult raised her beneath the city of Katapesh and probably would have sacrificed her to their god instead of raising her if not for her exhibition of magical aptitude. The first time she saw the sun was when she escaped. Prior to her escape, Morrigan was deeply ingrained with religious teachings. She bore indescribable pain and also learned how to deal it. Her only respite was to hide away the pain in a different part of her mind. She learned to treat pain as only an illusion. In time she also learned that she could use illusions to create pain.
When Morrigan came of age, despite her religious upbringing, she was unable to bring herself to make the required human sacrifice to become a full-fledged member of the cult. Realizing that she would soon be sacrificed in the victims' place, Morrigan set out to escape. Using her illusion magic, she was able to deceive her way to the surface.
In Katapesh, Morrigan was in for a rude awakening. The world was completely different in more ways than just the harsh light of day. Since half-orcs are rare and often despised in Katapesh she received very poor treatment. For a time, she managed to survive through deception but Morrigan was curious about her new world and sought to better herself. She decided to join a mercenary band to see new places and to earn a decent living for herself rather than steal or beg for it.


Dotting for interest. Still gotta figure out what lights my fire on this one.

Background:

Boramyr was born to a family of town guards in the small town of Kelmarane.
When he was three, disaster struck the town, and he was taken in by Haleen after both of his parents went missing.
Haleen made arrangements to get him to relatives who lived in the 5 king mountain range. He kept in constant touch with her, through letters and the occasional visit to her.
His relatives taught him the basics of arms, but it was in the church that he seemed to flourish. He eventually took up a position as one of the churches guards.
During this time, his letters to Haleen started to come back undelivered, as they could not find her.
He then received a cryptic letter from her saying that he should not continue to look for her. But this just peaked his curiosity and so he asked for permission to leave the employ of the church.
He started to follow rumours of where she was, and slowly made his way to Katapesh where he had last heard that she was. The strongest rumour that he found was that she was back in the town of Kelmarane. With funds running low, and seeing the advertisement for mercenaries to go to Kelmarane, he went and signed up for the trip.


Crunch is pretty much done. might make a few changes based on party composition etc. if chosen.

Reta mem Sota


Ok, think that I will toss my hat into the ring here as I really like this AP.

Plan is a human Oracle(Solar Mystery)(Spirit Guide) - powered by the sun, he/she draws from the power of the sun and all that it creates -- likely shaman spirits would be flame, wind, waves, heavens, nature, life and lore. Others are possible, but a connection for some seem a little far fetched (bones, mammoth).

Will try to get a background and crunch up tomorrow before the submission deadline.


I'm going to bow out. Thanks for the opportunity.


Sarabian here, with my halfling storm druid! Looking forward to an interesting opportunity!

Spoiler:
If someone else has also chosen the Finding Haleen trait, I'm willing and able to alter my background to include the other person, or to at least make sure said backgrounds don't interfere with each other.


I know you are going to pick a group tonight, so I'm just chiming in that I'm still interested.


I think this is the current applicant pool, greatly simplified:

Martial
Noonan - fighter
Belros Silverkin - ranger

Skilled
Bahram the Rogue - rogue
Izura Selenesh - bard (dervish dancer)
Davian Carter - rogue (unchained)
Horum - monk

Arcane
Sanniya Al’Nusra - alchemist (mindchemist)
Anaara Sand - witch
Morrigan Winters - illusionist (shadow)

Divine
Boramyr Cliffstalker - warpriest
Reta mem Sota - druid (desert)
Mowri Windspeaker - druid (storm)


Just to point out, Izura and Anaara are both my characters. Davian and Belros were the same person as well, and I think Davian was withdrawn.


This character was withdrawn in favor of Belros, and this character has been tweaked for another pbp so is no longer available for this pbp he was withdrawn several posts up


I also have an oracle. Just finishing the background. Should be done in 30-45 minutes. Started it when there was just one unfinished druid in divine, now the divine has gone from fewest to most.

As a note, usually Monk and Warpriest are considered melee as that is pretty much their focus. Although, it is the DM who will decide, so it probably does not make much difference.


Ok, not perfect, but may I introduce Katenui Ja'Kaleth <--click here - Oracle of the Solar Mystery (Spirit Guide archetype).

Sorry for the late submission. I tried to finish everything, but have run out of time. If selected, I shall clean up the remainder. For now though, it is well after my time to go to bed. Thanks for the consideration.


11th-hour withdrawal. I came to my senses about how much time I'd actually have free, and how much of that I'd need to spend with family over the next several months. I apologize for any inconvenience, and thanks for the opportunity.
