A tale of surviving when the zombies aren't the only thing out to play.

Boss Zog - That's the Aberrant Archetype for the Aegis, not some strange and terrifying race I don't know about? Since you can go back to being human (or at least bipedal) you should be OK...but try not to freak out the norms. Too much.

I can't see it being worse than the Synthesist stomping around town wearing a glowing dragon suit, anyway.


Setting in my application finally. Looking forward to either playing or creeping the game play thread.

The profile has the fluff and a link to a Mythweaver's sheet with the Crunch.

I saw earlier you okay'd some of the Path of War material, so hopefully this is all fly (did I just use the word fly? O_o) by you.

Aasimar Stalker, VMC'd with Rogue ready for some heroic survival horror!


When does recruitment for this close? I sadly haven't been able to get as far on my character as I would want.


I was actually curious myself if we knew when to expect close of recruitment/party selection.

Yup.

Oh, also, the recruitment thread will end on Friday the 18th at 23.59 GMT.

My powers are so awesome I saw your question from the past and answered it! Fear me.


Shoot, I swear I looked. I must have missed it. :/


It's partway down page one, so it's not too shocking you missed it.

You should still fear me.

This game will not be PC friendly. It will be murderous, and NPC’s may occasionally explode or try to eat you.

I don't think anyone was ever actually confused about that.


Getting stuff moved along. HAve the cohort's sheet done.

Will be finishing today.


3rd party friendly? It pains my heart to admit this, but even I can't see a taninim fit this game's setting.

However, a Stalker going into the Umbral Blade PRC (assuming we ever get to a high enough level) might. Umbral Blades are about channeling shadow powers that threaten to eat away their sanity. Sounds like he'll fit right in.

I think a Tengu stalker using two weapon fighting and specializing in the Veiled Moon discipline, which lets you teleport around short distances (as in, once or twice your movements speed) while you strike, would be awesome. What can I say, I like the second X-men movie's opening. For the demi-class, I'll take the rogue so I can do some trapfinding for the party and get a bit of sneak attacking going on.


Hi Jon! I updated Kallyan with a little bit more story, appearance etc. :) I hope it looks better now.


The Dragon - Probably not, but I like to be clear.

Tark - No rush, so long as you're done before the deadline.

Bificommander - You can do that. I think someone else has done something similar. Not that it makes much difference...even if you're both nearly identical and you're both good apps you'll both get in. I choose the best people, not the best party...which might suck for you guys.

We do have some healers applying, right?

Kallyan - Looks like you sorted my issues.

Sorry, no healing here! If anything, I wouldn't be surprised if a healer tries to do a healing spell or something near me and finds that it fizzles.


Very curious. Was wondering if you would allow this race, though: Munavri. They're a little more powerful than the standard races, but I've wanted to play one since I saw it in Occult Bestiary.


In variant MtC do you get the BAB and saves etc like you would in Gestalt?

Also How do you feel about the 3rd party class Priest?

I was thinking of taking local and being Harper's bay's resident clergy. With UC Monk, as variant, but Multiclassing into Holy Vindicator when I meet the prereqs.


Would it be all right if I spent today throwing together another character? (Probably a cleric of Pharasma, since divine casting is what we're lightest on for submissions and clerics of Pharasma are all over undead hunting.) I like putting together characters, but I don't want to steal undue amounts of spotlight.

You probably should read up on variant multiclassing, it's a whole lot easier than explaining everything. You only get class abilities (normally traded for feats, but here they are free). It's basically the same as "eldritch heritage", just for more classes. It's very different from gestalt. There are no rules for variant unchained classes, however variant monk doesn't get anything that is changed to unchained anyway(no flurry), so they wold probably be identical.


Hmm, the Stalker doesn't have healing spells, but one of the Disciplines, Steel serpent, gets sone extra martial uses out of the Heal skill. Since he needs a high wisdom anyway, maybe I'll put some ranks in that one. I think it would fit the dark and gritty mood to have to fix injuries with hard and painful work instead of a simple spell.


Rowe - I'll allow it. Spell Resitance is a double edged sword, as the party in my other game just found out when there main fighter was taken to 0 HP and couldn't be healed because his Spell Resistence cancelled it out. And none of the other racial abilities.

The stats are bit extreme, though, and they don't seem to be a surface race. So I will want to see an interesting back story as to why you're up, and nothing especially cheesy with the stats.

Bane 88 - Essentially you get some class features, but not the full class options from another class. If you want to suggest something for a Monk I'm open to ideas. But yes, I would suggest giving it a full read.

Rennai - Yes, but only one will be accepted. This goes for others, if they wish to do more than one application. If I like both I'll make you choose which gets in.


This is Rennai with my in-progress cleric of Pharasma. I had no intention of trying to run two characters at once - it's enough work to run one at a time, especially since Rennai has an animal companion. :) I just like making characters, and since we're running a little low on divine casters in a heavy undead campaign, I figured a cleric might come in handy, especially since she'll have some decent martial ability while still being able to heal if needed. I've got a soft spot for Rennai, but I'll run whichever character makes for the best party composition once final players are decided.

Got it. I forgot that my other group homebrews that you can lower spell resistance as a free action for beneficial spells. I hate spell resistance so much without that. >_< It's alright though, I'll make do.

If bificommander gets in, I might change some stuff around to optimize a bit more than I currently am. Getting shown up by someone else of the same class feels undignified. I could handle an inquisitor in the party turning up and show me how the inquisitoring is really done, but a guy of the same class who's straight up better... Well, I do have some competitive drive, it's not all about the RP.

Incidentally, and I'm not quite sure that I'm changing characters, because I really like this guy, but it seems like there's no healers of any kind yet, so would you allow a priest?


@Dragon: I don't think you need to worry too much. It's my first Path of War build, I'm not an extremely skilled builder anyway, and I'm weighing "coolness" as well as effectiveness in my decisions.


The Dragon - Priests are fine.


I can't believe that I never thought of this before, but would you allow the Death Mage with the reaper mage pale road?


Sounds like a thematic fit, sure. Genius games are usually pretty good stuff.


Been wanting to play one of those since I got a bunch of Genius books. I may have to submit one instead of/along side my Malefactor.


Go for it. As noted, there can be only one, but if I like both you can choose.


Oh, I'm going for the fetish death bond, how do you want to do the attunement? Should I not start with any or only have like one or two?


Well, as I understand the Fetish is a singular item with two of the chosen powers within it, not multiple items. I'd say you're probably attuned - you're not just starting at level 3, in terms of XP (which I probably won't be using anyway) so it should be attuned. Unless you lost it, and wish to do a plot point about attuning another

EDIT: Ah, I see what you mean now, sorry.

Attune it to 1d6 creature types of your choosing.


Attuned Creatures: 1d6 ⇒ 1

Ack, was hoping for at least two. Ah well, I can work with one and gather others as the game progresses.

Now to decide on starting with a human or undead...


Hi again there,
Here is Llaelian's character. I changed my mind and went for a ratfolk alchemist. I hope you'll like him. There are still a few things to finnish:
Background is half-written and description is missing.
Variant multiclassing is not fully in the profile as well.
I should have everything finished tonight.


A quick question for my Death Mage. Your homerule for VMC is that we gain our stuff earlier. I'm going for the Cleric VMC, and they get Channel Energy at lvl 7, functioning as a Cleric of their level -6. If I get it at level 5, as per your homerule, that would give me an effective Cleric level of -1 (5-6=-1). Would you rule it to be as my level -4 to keep it with the original progression?


He already ruled that we don't get any "faster" progression, but that they function at minimum 1st level.


Ah, thanks. Must have missed that.


Yup, that's how we roll.

Remember, folks, only a couple of days left.


Keep trying to come up with something that'll fit thematically and still play nice with others. A flaming ooze that splooshes itself all over a single target while burning it to a cinder is great for combat, but is too easy to get swarmed by an undead horde.

Hmm.... Artificer? Artisan seems fun.

Meh, I may bow out. Option paralysis sucks, lol.


I know the feeling. I'm fine with Artificer, though.

And honestly, I don't think any option is terribly safe from an undead horde. That's kinda the point of them, really.

Apart from being able to outrun your companions? If so I'll be in a bad spot pretty quickly.


How long is recruitment still open, it took me a while to come up with an idea but I have something now. Nevermind. Found the deadline, I don't think i can whip something up by the time, so you guys have fun.


About a day and a half.


Hey, just posting to say that I'm withdrawing - I've found the limit of how many pbps I can participate in and run at the same time. I do have other things to do.

A shame, really, I really liked the character I had in mind. Still, wouldn't be fair to you guys to start up in your game too only to disappear.

Good luck and good gaming! :)


Just letting you know I'm dropping. Got a bit more on my plate than I really need right now.


Well, I'm sorry to see you guys go, since your concepts were interesting, but such is life.


Leyla's got a bit more fleshing-out done, although I still need to go shopping for her. Been a busy day for me, but she should be mostly ready for judgement now.

Edit: Just realized I hadn't gotten a variant multiclass put in for her. I'll go ahead and take fighter.


Update: both Rennai and Leyla should be ready to go now. I look forward to hearing your decision soon!


And you shall...in a bit over 24 hours. Which is the amount of time anyone who wants to get there sheet in has left, by the way.

And yes, I know it sucks to hang around, so my decision will be sometime tomorrow night. I am at work, which means it might be slower than I'd like, but it'll be up.


Just take your time, and make the right decision by choosing me }:->

JKJK, choose who you think will be best.


Well, let's see whose in the competition so far.

Rennai Barzanslag - Infiltrator Corpse Hunter Skirmisher Ranger 3 - Cleric VMC
OR
Leyla Sorani - Cleric 3 - Fighter VMC

Kallyan Shan - Paladin (Iroran Paladin/Divine Defender) 2 / Oracle (Lore) 1 - Bloodrager VMC

Thanis Callabad - Human telekineticist 3 - Cleric VMC

Abraham Darkson - Stalker 3 - Rogue VMC

Kerwin OneEar - Grenadier Alchemist 3 - Wizard VMC

I believe these are all the currently complete applications? If I have missed anyone, do let me know.
