So, you need a skill monkey of sorts, but you're rather restricted on sources. Do you even have a trapfinder at the moment? I've been wanting to play an arcane trickster for a long time, but I kinda need a few options to be available for it to be viable. Would you allow unchained rogue and accomplished sneak attacker?

Any preferences by either you or the players on what roles they want to fill?


Sources: Core Rules, Advanced Players Guide, Ultimate Combat and Ultimate Magic after 5th level on DM approval on a case by case basis only. I do allow some classes from the Advanced Class Guide. No witch, no summoner. I don't do unchained, sorry.


Always interested in this setting....not sure what 'After 5th level...' means; you can only use APG, UC and UM options from 6th level on?

Thanks


Yeah I saw the source requirement, which is why I asked. What about the feat I linked? Honestly it's a lot more important than unchained to make the character work.


We are good on Frontline types and we have a Divine and Arcane caster. What we're really missing is a utility character.

As a player I liked having a Bard/Skald type for the buffs (we are replacing a dead Bard). We don't have much range, but you kinda have to go all in (improved precise shot right away) or the house rules are just too penalizing.


When I saw that 3 out of four were 9th level casters I did not think "we're good for melee". Thanks for the clarification. I was considering making a Magus as well, but if melee is already clogged...

I do have an idea for a bard. Though I would like to use the duettist archtype which is from familiar folio. It would also be nice if I could use and reflavor the master performer and grandmaster performer feats to something that fits the setting...

Though perhaps I'm misunderstanding what's available just like Spazmodeus. Can we request stuff from outside the listed sources, or is that only for after the game starts?


Note on ranged attacks: Cover: When firing through your allies they provide a +4 cover to the enemy. This is in addition to the -4 for firing into melee. Precise shot removes the latter only. Improved precise shot is needed to get around this. Now here is the kicker. If you miss by the cover, you hit the cover. Meaning you have a 20% chance of hitting your ally!

I know this is what Dalgyrm is referring to, but in running 3.x and pathfinder for 20 years I can say it does not have as much of an affect as he thinks. It is all a matter of positioning. As long as you are not firing directly through an ally it does not apply.

The party did lost a ranger and bard/swashbuckler. Yes, melee is still a little light IMHO. I run straight rogues, non-unchained sorry. The party lost one about a year ago. The skills they bring are invaluable.
This is an old school game.

What do you have in mind? My general rule is that I have the source, but I have most of the older pathfinder material including about 100 Paizo mods.


The Cleric is pretty good in melee.


K going with rogue/shadowdancer, if I may?
Standard wealth for 6th level?
Rolling HP, right? Max at 1st level?


If you're going for a rogue it might be better if I go for something else than a skill monkey. I'm thinking either alchemist or magus. For the magus would I be able to pick the slashing grace feat?

Sounds find and yes reroll 1's

ozyar, both are fine.


I just saw this. I love the Lost Lands setting, currently playing in a Rappan Athuk game. If you do require yet another player, feel free to let me know!


HP: 5d8 ⇒ (2, 6, 4, 8, 8) = 28


Decimus I am still looking at players


5d8 ⇒ (1, 8, 6, 8, 2) = 25

I think I'll make an alchemist using the vivisectionist and Preservationist archtypes from ultimate magic. Will that be ok?


I will look at the archetype but they will probably be ok. Sorry, but my first priority atm is this virus.


I'll hopefully have an entry tomorrow evening.

Considering off the top of my head:

an Oracle of Time for buffing

an Investigator for general skill monkeying from Advanced Class Guide if allowed


The Investigator sounds interesting. I have issues with the Oracle

.

I am ok with the vivisectionist. I limit it to one archetype per class and summoning causes confusion in play especially here.

You can re-roll that 1, oyzar.


I'm thinking Dayananda Kher, the overly-curious son of two ex-pats who were from an Indian-subcontinent type land. Highly intelligent but the world is fascinating and he wants to go see it as opposed to a nice safe career in academia or a bureaucracy. Maybe even his parent's homeland, or find out why they left.

Mechanically, a human investigator taking the empiricist archetype. Has trapfinding from base investigator and tonnes of skills.

Traits from APG?


yes on traits

I know there has been a lot of discussion about using dex for damage, but it is not something I use in an old school campaign.


Should my/our characters be from anywhere in particular, near where the current party is located perhaps?


They can be from anywhere in the Lost Lands. I will probably make the 2 of you as survivors of another adventuring party.


I'll get to do a writeup either tomorrow evening or on Saturday.

(GMT)


Take your time guys.


Any progress guys?


Not yet unfortunately. Been busy.


I understand:)


crunch done...working on the fuzzy bits


It has been over a week guys. How are we doing?


Sorry about that....the last week crushed me. I'll finish up today...


I understand. My wife is working 60+ hours a week right now herself.


Are you still recruiting? If so Is an investigator from the advanced class guide still acceptable? If that’s not to liking I have some ideas for a bard too.


Yes I am and yes that is acceptable.


Apologies for not getting back sooner. I've a large chunk done but not ready to post.

If you are still looking for people I would love to apply. What classes do you have covered already?


Sorry , going to bow out.
Finding my muse has been lacking of late, with all of this extra work, Covid etc...

Perhaps another time...


They are four players level 6. A Slayer, Shaman, cleric and Sorcerer. We still have openings. One just bowed out.

Not a problem. I totally understand:)

Liberty's Edge

Well looks like you could use some more fighting power, so I will look into making a warrior of some type..


That works for me. It is an old school game:)

Looks mostly good. Just a few issues.
1) You only have 18 skill points
2) Need to roll for hit points, Max at level 1 reroll 1's
3) You are at medium encumbrance carrying 70.2 lbs in weight. This gives a -1 to AC until you drop your backpack.

Liberty's Edge

Ok...will recheck my skills...I might have set the background skills on.

HitPoints

1 level: 10
2-6 5d10 ⇒ (6, 10, 5, 9, 9) = 39

ok will update character.

Approved, although you are still a little overweight. Maybe someone can carry some of your gear? It is only about 8 lbs. Go ahead and post in discussion and dot gameplay.
