So to my wallet's detriment, I took advantage of the Golem clearance event to pick up a hefty stack of modules. In order to improve my DM skills and also get to experience the module format, I'd like to start a game in which a group of adventurers jump from module to module, essentially creating a story by taking part in so many different scenarios.

There'd be breaks in which the characters return "home" and a familiar cast of characters can grow and react to their success and failure. For levels at which I don't have a module ready, I'll adjust another one I do possess or use a third party one I pre-selected before hand.

I also understand that even finishing one module takes a long time and there are bound to be players who drop out. Still, I'd like to push this as far as it will go and hopefully replace dropouts with those who are in it for the long haul.

The first module will most likely be Murderer's Mark or an adventure from Tales of the Old Margreve. This decision will be finalized with the input of the selected characters.

Character Creation:

• We will be starting at level 1, and be leveling usually through the moderate experience track and key moments during play.
• Races: All standard races from the Pathfinder Core Rulebook will be allowed. Any other PC race will be considered on a case by case basis.
• Classes: All classes from PFRPG core rulebook plus those from the Advanced Player's Guide (APG), Advanced Class Guide (ACG), Ultimate Combat (UC), and Ultimate Magic (UM), Occult Adventures(OA), and Ultimate Intrigue (UI) will be allowed. Any Archetype for these base classes will be allowed.
• Alignment: You can declare an alignment, but for the most part it will be determined by your actions and motivations.
• Abilities: Characters will be based on the High Fantasy (20 point) buy, found in the PFRPG Core Rulebook on page 16.
• Feats: Any feat from the Core Rulebook, APG, ACG, UM, UI, OA, or UC will be acceptable.
• Skills: We will be using the Background Skill system.
• Traits: Characters will start with two traits.
• Hit Points: Characters will start out with Maximum hit points for their class at 1st level. After 1st level character's will roll for their hit points or take the average of their particular hit dice, whichever is greater.
• Starting Gold: Characters will start with Maximum starting gold for their base class as found in the PFRPG Core Rulebook on page 140, or in the APG on page 26.
• I retain the ability to ask you to change something if I find it would upset game balance a bit too much.
• Third Party Pathfinder material and 3.5 material will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
• Unchained options are allowed, but you must fully commit. Meaning, you cannot choose the unchained version of a barbarian but choose the non-unchained version of one of his rage powers.

Things you should consider:

• While I don't mandate posting every day, I do hope you will post frequently. If you will be gone for a decent span of time, please inform me and I will bot you as necessary.
• I will be using Roll20 for combat, but all rolls and role-playing will be done in the gameplay thread of this campaign.
• Keep Min-maxing to a minimum, please. I understand the joy of a powerful character, but I like to see reasons behind character decisions. Relevant background reasons, not "its the most effective."
• If your character sheet is difficult to reach or read, that is a bad thing.
• I'm going to push this thing as far as it will go, up to level 20 if possible. If you want a short succinct adventure that will only last one module, please do not apply.
• While I said I would consider third party and 3.5 material, I'm not entirely confident of them.
• The number one deciding factor that will boost your chances of selection is if you have a very real character, one that oozes personality, backstory, and motivation. At times, I have chosen lopsided parties of characters I enjoyed and worked with the chosen players to balance the party after selection.

Recruitment will last until the first of September.


Still here! Not sure of what I'll play, I'll need to think about what else I'm playing and what would concepts I have that'd be fun.

Dotting.

Will submit a Ranger character soon.

Where will the campaign begin, ie. what region of Golarian, so I can create his background to fit.

I am most interested! I've always wanted to have a "campaign" like this! One question, though: would you be adapting non-Golarion modules to Golarion or Golarion modules to your own non-Golarion setting? The answer'll likely influence the character I come up with.


I'm going to be straight with you guys, I do not a have a great understanding of Golarion. That being said, I'm planning on using that setting and just having you guys fast travel to the next module's setting when we switch.

If you know of a cliffnotes of Golarian (that's a great idea for someone to do) please refer me to it.

AS for hometowns, you're free to create any kind of backstory you'd like. Eventually, I'll try to work some of it into the modules to give it a more personalized setting. As for the location of the first module, that will be voted on by the selected players so can't tell yet.


Ah; I'll dot, and apply after the party levels up a bit. Best of luck.


http://pathfinderwiki.com/

That's usually the place I go to when I need to know something about the setting.

I'm interested and thinking of a fighter. Would you allow options from the weapon and armor master handbooks from the player companion series?


On the 3rd party. Im very tempted to make a dragon scale sorcerer if allowed. Otherwise. Ill see what else i can come up with =^^=


If you'd like to propose 3rd party or 3.5 material, please link to the material.

One rule of thumb is if I can't reference the information directly (online), then I won't allow it.

In the case of weapon an armor master handbooks, I don't know what materials you're planning to use so I can't make a judgement.

Description: Jix Rissi is a lithe, jet black furred ratfolk with a toned, though slight, physique that should have made her appear rather attractive were it not for her extremely vulgar and intimidating attitude. She has a long tan tail that hangs low to the ground and gold eyes. Her favorite jewelry consists of a series of three golden earrings on her left ear and a golden ring three quarters of the way down her tail inscribed with Draconic writing. The garb she wears consists of her leather armor which is shapely in design and has a low V-cut, as well as a black scarf she wears wrapped around her head and over her mouth revealing just her eyes to hide her face from human civilizations, who often find ratfolks' appearances to be distasteful. She has a streak or red warpaint going down either side of her snout under the scarf.

Background: Jix "The Jinx" Rissi was born into a fairly standard ratfolk community. That being that it wasn't what many humans would consider a standard way to raise a child. Being that the Rissi tribe traveled around the world as a gypsy group, selling their wares. As such Jix's clan was a traveling group of caravan traders that roved from town to town on the back's of their giant rat mounts loaded with all kinds of valuables to ship back to the Inner Sea Region, from whence they were based out of, for enormous profit. It was here that Jix began to develop a case of sticky fingers when it came to objects of great interest to her which included, even as a younger girl, any sort of draconic art and, curiously, poisons. The young ratfolk girl absolutely adored poisons for some inexplicable reason, she loved the look of it, the smell of it, and, unfortunately for Jix on several occasions, the taste of it, and she would horde the stuff as she continues to do to this day. Because of her compulsive stealing habit she was forced to develop a quick whit when it came to weaseling her way out of trouble, though this very habit also turned out to be what saved her life.

As one might have expected, with beasts of burden laden with all sorts of valuables and not many strong defenders, a deadly raid from bandits was an inevitable occurrence, for Jix this day came when she was a mere 8 years old, which is around 12 in human years. On a seldom and lonely night far away from civilization as the family slept, bandits descended from on high. Jix awoke to the sounds of her family being slaughtered as a man garbed in furs cleaved through her mother, father, and brothers in their family pavilion. The young ratfolk girl's gold eyes grew wide and she shook with terror as the man callously made his way through her family. As the slaughter went on, Jix used the opportunity to sneak to the back of the pavilion where she hoarded her own personal, pilfered loot and grabbed the first weapon she saw. A crossbow and three bolts. When she pulled the weapon from her hoard, the whole pile shifted and drew the barbarian's attentions. Jix could feel her heart stop beating in her chest as the deranged man grinned at her murderously and charged, swinging his axe at the girl. Fortunately, her petite form was small enough to slip under the bandit's legs as he struck leaving him only to rend a hole through the soft fabric at the back of the tent.

In an instant Jix was outside, through the newly torn hole, sprinting for her life, her over-sized weapon clutched tightly to her chest as she ran crying from the scene of the slaughter. But the enraged barbarian wasn't done yet. Hefting his monstrous weapon from the ground he pursed the young girl though the grassy knolls. Blinded by her tears the poor girl didn't notice the thick patch of mud before her from the recent rains and took a tumble onto her back covering her in mud. As she lay whimpering and gasping for air the bandit drew nearer and let out an uproarious laugh. He drew in for the kill and hefted his axe high when suddenly the girl spun around and loosed her bolt straight into the bandit's heart, half by accident. The barbarian stood there stupidly for a moment, transfixed by the arrow that burrowed deep inside his chest, then plummeted to the ground falling right on top of the girl. As warm blood spilled over her the girl cringed and screamed and struggled to push off the body only managing the feat after quite some time due to the man's muscular proportions. She then dusted herself off, took one last look at her burning caravan and decided to put her tears behind her as she made her way to the nearest town. Shirima.

In Shirima the rat girl spent much of the remainder of her childhood as an urchin, stealing to survive. Fortunately for her, several of the local prostitutes took pity on her and helped her find places to sleep for the night or provided her with food when she could gain none of her own, and otherwise just kept the girl company. It was from them that she heard of the goddess Calistria and took to her worship. After all she was the goddess of revenge and making a strike to live another day and this spoke directly to the girl's experience that horrible night. While Jix had once been a sweet and jovial girl, after the attacks she was never the same, the girl seemed to grow into a bratty thug, mocking others and getting in brawls being her favorite past times.

As time went on and Jix blossomed into womanhood, a group of traders passing through recognized the potential in the young woman immediately and asked her to join with their caravan. While Jix was reluctant at first she eventually agreed to join as a guard for the caravan for the sake of money, adding to her new hoard of items, and in hopes of gaining a new host of people to tease and harass. Through her journeys she has encountered all kinds of creatures including the reviled orcs and goblins. While many of the caravan's members outright refused business with such creatures Jix would have no issue marching into a village or camp full of the creatures and establishing a basic trade policy as her gruff mannerisms were well respected an acknowledged by the creatures. It was though this bravery that the traders came to respect the girl and even became her friends even despite the fact that she had picked up the nickname of "Jinx" from the other caravan members after they had heard of what happened to her original caravan so many years ago. Jix actually came to like the nickname and accepts it as a badge of honor.

As of now she lives in a trade cart in a caravan and is currently on leave of the crew until there next mission. It is likely that she is at her favorite establishment in any town at this moment, the pub. Looking to get a drink, chat with the local traders, or stir up some trouble.

Dirty Fighting

These were the main three. On the plus side they aren't 3rd party or 3.5 and are from official paizo books, but I understand if you don't want me to use them either. Either I'll have something whipped up soon.


@ Zerceses
For now, I'll say all three are fine but if selected and I notice that's a bit overpowered, I may ask you to swap out choices or nerf them a tad.

@ Annubis
Thank you for your submission.

@ Seth 86
At first glance, spell scale seems fine. I don't have any idea what the blood quickening can do so you if you have reference page for that, it'd be appreciated.


more detail about blood quickening


@ Seth86
The Blood quickening is powerful, but as the spell scale has little else going for it I think it balances out nicely. We might restrict the "options" by choosing a few first and having you gain new ones when you level though. Still considering, but the race gets my approval.


Thanks

Bonus Feat Humans select one extra feat at 1st level.

Devotee of the Green (Knowledge (Nature)) Your faith in the natural world or one of the gods of nature makes it easy for you to pick up on related concepts. You gain a +1 trait bonus on Knowledge (Geography) and Knowledge (Nature) checks, and Knowledge (Nature) is always a class skill for you.

Humanoid (Gnoll) (Ex) You gain a +2 bonus on Bluff, Knowledge, Perception, Sense Motive, and Survival checks when using these skills against gnolls. Likewise, you get a +2 bonus on weapon attack and damage rolls against such creatures. You may make Knowledge Skill checks untrained to identify such creatures.

Humanoid Traits (Ex) Humanoids breathe, eat, and sleep.

Reactionary You were bullied often as a child, but never quite developed an offensive response. Instead, you became adept at anticipating sudden attacks and reacting to danger quickly. You gain a +2 trait bonus on Initiative checks.

Skilled Humans gain an additional skill rank at first level and one additional rank whenever they gain a level.

Track (Ex) You gain +1 to Survival checks made to follow tracks.

Wild Empathy (Ex) You can improve the attitude of an animal. This ability functions just like Diplomacy check made to improve the attitude of a person. You roll 1d20+0 to determine the Wild Empathy check result. The typical domestic animal has a starting attitude of indifferent, while wild animals are usually unfriendly. To use Wild Empathy, you and the animal must be within 30 feet of one another under normal circumstances. Generally, influencing an animal in this way takes 1 minute, but as with influencing people, it might take more or less time. You can use this ability to influence a magical beast with an Intelligence score of 1 or 2, but you take a -4 penalty on the check.

+1 Skill Rank (Handle Animal, Knowledge (Geography)) GM awarded PC with +1 skill rank (won't exceed max ranks).

Description:

At 6 feet 2 inches and 225 pounds, Mahk is big for his 18 years. He wears a chainmail suit over wool breeches, and shirt. His boots look rather new, but all his other clothing, while clean and servicable, has seen some years of use. Over his shoulder is slung a longbow, and he carries a scythe that is of an older design, however the wicked looking blade still seems razor sharp.

As he walks down the street, he looks and acts like a happy-go-lucky sort of fellow, humming and whistling, very off key, as he looks around at the wonders of the city.

History:

Mahk was raised in a small village about one days travel from Solku in western Katapesh. The big attraction was a watering hole that caravans and travelers were able to use for a simple daily fee. There was room for the visitors to rest, whether setting up a camp for themselves, as caravans usually did, or staying in the Sand Storm Inn House which was located in the center of this small village. The largest problem the town had was wandering gnoll tribes and bandits.

Mahk father was one of several families that were simple farmers, who raised crops to sell to others in town and the folks passing thru. All the families took turns working the fields, and the older teenage children took turns guarding the fields so the gnolls and bandits did not burn them down.

Mahk grandfather was an adventurer who returned after many years away and became a member of the local militia. On his return, he took Mahk under his wing and taught him that a scythe would not only cut down the crops in the fields during harvest time, but was also good for cutting down gnolls. He also taught him how to shoot a bow, and his special secret, how to set up traps and disable them. That way, he could protect more of the crops by wounding the gnolls before having to either shoot them or cut them down with his scythe.

One fateful night while Mahk and some of the other elder teenagers were on watch, the gnolls attacked in a larger than normal force. While eventually the ones who were not killed were driven away, the cost to the village and especially to Mahk was quite high. The found his grandfather severely wounded, and his famous flaming scythe missing. ”Mahk” the old man whispered, ”I give to you my armor and my old scythe. Use it to someday recover Gnoll Bane, my scythe from the gnoll bandits” and with that he died.

Mahk was stricken to the very core of his being with hatred of gnolls, and taking his grandfathers chain armor and his old scythe set out to find Gnoll Bane and return it to the village. On his travels he killed many a gnoll, learned their language so he could taunt them as they died, and finally found his way to <insert city that the campaign starts in> where he heard of a man named Garavel who was looking to hire adventurers to free the village of Kelmarane from a gnoll tribe.

Finding this man, Mahk approaches him and waits his turn as others plead their case to be included in this outing. ”Mr. Garavel, I offer my services to you in freeing Kelmarane from the gnoll infestation. I know their language, and I am proficient on killing them. My grandpa's scythe is sharp, and his longbow shoots straight. I can track them, and I can find them. I also know the way of traps, both building them and disabling them. What say you?” and he waits for the man to tell him yea or nay.

Hey, interesting to see that this ended up with provisions for 3.5e material.

Might try to do something with that. Maybe add some spells and feats to the Magus?


So im making the dragonscale in herolab.
Standard humanoid. With lowlight vision. I cant add the bloodquickening. Will add that manually =^^=


Hi DM Default.
I would like to submit this character for your campaign. I made it some time ago, and regret not having the opportunity of playing it for a long time.
I am willing to make any changes you think can improve the game.
Thanks for your consideration.
All the details are in the alias.


Jane is from one of the wealthy families in Galt. She has just set out on her own, and is looking for adventure.


Spellscale. Frost/Orc duel blooded.
Planar savant. So he will know a lot of planar things. But thats about it. But he makes things cold. He makes it really cold. He is out to descover more of his draconic heritage =^^=

Sure thing. I'll put up my build as intended later and then you can tell me the changes to make.


dotting for interest, will dig in and hopefully submit something this weekend.

Would be a first time PbP player, but I have been playing Pathfinder in meat-space for nearly a decade. :)

Sovereign Court

Hmm, I'm potentially interested in this experiment.


Thank you DM but I also just noticed the fact that we will be using background skills. Which I didn't realize when making Jix. Would you like me to repost to character sheet with the updated information following these rules then?

Also my work allows a ton of free time and I'm very committed to a campaign once I start. I can guarantee I will see it through =P

Also Mahk seems to have a very interesting backstory. Well made indeed Papa-DRB. ^^


Jameco would like nothing better than to chronicle these grand adventures and share them with the world.

Alias has details, bio forthcoming.

Sovereign Court

Ok ring, here's my hat!

Molly Mindigo is a halfing tank. Yes, that's right, she's a 2' 8" fighter designed to tank for the party.

While this may seem comical, she is played as a straight character. She may be small, she may have an occasionally squeaky voice, she may look like a tiny version of someone's mom in armor running screaming across the battlefield, but she is surprisingly effective.

Molly is a cheerful, caring sort who will always be there to support party members when they're blue, and to comment on the absurdity of the world (after finding herself turned into a wandering armor master).

She also starts out at AC 21 and has +5 to hit with her small bastard sword (+2 Strength, +1 size, +1 Weapon Focus, +1 BAB), and if the campaign goes for a while and she gains a few levels, she will handle battlefield positioning by overruns.

This seems very interesting! I've got a couple of ideas already. Would this old homebrew be okay?

@ Burnscar
I'd rather not.

@ Gurich, Jane, Papa, Jameco, Jesse
Thank you for your submission. Will do a cursory look over.

@ Jesstral
Newcomers are welcome to apply.

Fine with me, but please use a spoiler tag to avoid the wall of text effect.

Sorry, but won't be allowing Ochremancer.


@DM Default Yeah sorry I was a little over-eager to post my character. I'll do that in the future.

Highlander (Hills or Mountains): You gain a +1 trait bonus on Stealth checks, and Stealth is always a class skill for you. This trait bonus increases to +2 in hilly or rocky areas.

Description:
Description: Jix Rissi is a lithe, jet black furred ratfolk with a toned, though slight, physique that should have made her appear rather attractive were it not for her extremely vulgar and intimidating attitude. She has a long tan tail that hangs low to the ground and gold eyes. Her favorite jewelry consists of a series of three golden earrings on her left ear and a golden ring three quarters of the way down her tail inscribed with Draconic writing. The garb she wears consists of her leather armor which is shapely in design and has a low V-cut, as well as a black scarf she wears wrapped around her head and over her mouth revealing just her eyes to hide her face from human civilizations, who often find ratfolks' appearances to be distasteful. She has a streak or red warpaint going down either side of her snout under the scarf.

Background:
Background: Jix "The Jinx" Rissi was born into a fairly standard ratfolk community. That being that it wasn't what many humans would consider a standard way to raise a child. Being that the Rissi tribe traveled around the world as a gypsy group, selling their wares. As such Jix's clan was a traveling group of caravan traders that roved from town to town on the backs of their giant rat mounts loaded with all kinds of valuables to ship back to the Inner Sea Region, from whence they were based out of, for enormous profit. It was here that Jix began to develop a case of sticky fingers when it came to objects of great interest to her which included, even as a younger girl, any sort of draconic art and, curiously, poisons. The young ratfolk girl absolutely adored poisons for some inexplicable reason, she loved the look of it, the smell of it, and, unfortunately for Jix on several occasions, the taste of it, and she would horde the stuff as she continues to do to this day. Because of her compulsive stealing habit she was forced to develop a quick whit when it came to weaseling her way out of trouble, though this very habit also turned out to be what saved her life.

As one might have expected, with beasts of burden laden with all sorts of valuables and not many strong defenders, a deadly raid from bandits was an inevitable occurrence, for Jix this day came when she was a mere 8 years old, which is around 12 in human years. On a seldom and lonely night far away from civilization as the family slept, bandits descended from on high. Jix awoke to the sounds of her family being slaughtered as a man garbed in furs cleaved through her mother, father, and brothers in their family pavilion. The young ratfolk girl's gold eyes grew wide and she shook with terror as the man callously made his way through her family. As the slaughter went on, Jix used the opportunity to sneak to the back of the pavilion where she hoarded her own personal, pilfered loot and grabbed the first weapon she saw. A crossbow and three bolts. When she pulled the weapon from her hoard, the whole pile shifted and drew the barbarian's attentions. Jix could feel her heart stop beating in her chest as the deranged man grinned at her murderously and charged, swinging his axe at the girl. Fortunately, her petite form was small enough to slip under the bandit's legs as he struck leaving him only to rend a hole through the soft fabric at the back of the tent.

In an instant Jix was outside, through the newly torn hole, sprinting for her life, her over-sized weapon clutched tightly to her chest as she ran crying from the scene of the slaughter. But the enraged barbarian wasn't done yet. Hefting his monstrous weapon from the ground he pursed the young girl through the grassy knolls. Blinded by her tears the poor girl didn't notice the thick patch of mud before her from the recent rains and took a tumble onto her back covering her in mud. As she lay whimpering and gasping for air the bandit drew nearer and let out an uproarious laugh. He drew in for the kill and hefted his axe high when suddenly the girl spun around and loosed her bolt straight into the bandit's heart, half by accident. The barbarian stood there stupidly for a moment, transfixed by the arrow that burrowed deep inside his chest, then plummeted to the ground falling right on top of the girl. As warm blood spilled over her the girl cringed and screamed and struggled to push off the body only managing the feat after quite some time due to the man's muscular proportions. She then dusted herself off, took one last look at her burning caravan and decided to put her tears behind her as she made her way to the nearest town. Shirima.

In Shirima the rat girl spent much of the remainder of her childhood as an urchin, stealing to survive. Fortunately for her, several of the local prostitutes took pity on her and helped her find places to sleep for the night or provided her with food when she could gain none of her own, and otherwise just kept the girl company. It was from them that she heard of the goddess Calistria and took to her worship. After all she was the goddess of revenge and making a strike to live another day and this spoke directly to the girl's experience that horrible night. While Jix had once been a sweet and jovial girl, after the attacks she was never the same, the girl seemed to grow into a bratty thug, mocking others and getting in brawls being her favorite past times.

As time went on and Jix blossomed into womanhood, a group of traders passing through recognized the potential in the young woman immediately and asked her to join with their caravan. While Jix was reluctant at first she eventually agreed to join as a guard for the caravan for the sake of money, adding to her new hoard of items, and in hopes of gaining a new host of people to tease and harass. Through her journeys she has encountered all kinds of creatures including the reviled orcs and goblins. While many of the caravan's members outright refused business with such creatures Jix would have no issue marching into a village or camp full of the creatures and establishing a basic trade policy as her gruff mannerisms were well respected an acknowledged by the creatures. It was through this bravery that the traders came to respect the girl and even became her friends even despite the fact that she had picked up the nickname of "Jinx" from the other caravan members after they had heard of what happened to her original caravan so many years ago. Jix actually came to like the nickname and accepts it as a badge of honor.

As of now she lives in a trade cart in a caravan and is currently on leave of the crew until their next mission. It is likely that she is at her favorite establishment in any town at this moment, the pub. Looking to get a drink, chat with the local traders, or stir up some trouble.


Sorry, you'd rather not what?


Will work someone up in a bit.


@ Burnscar
In reference to adding to Pathfinder spell lists from 3.5, or using 3.5 feats. I don't mind looking over a class or race, but I'm not comfortable mixing and matching different spells and feats from both editions.


@GM
Will post build in a moment. Input welcome =^^=

Here is the updated Mahk. When I "modified" him for this campaign, I mistakenly dropped his Archetype. He is still from the desert area, but the "city", "country", "favored enemy" can be changed if that will make more sense for the start of this campaign.

SPECIAL ABILITIES
=================================================
Background Skill (Handle Animal, Knowledge (Geography))

Bonus Feat Humans select one extra feat at 1st level.

Devotee of the Green (Knowledge (Nature)) Your faith in the natural world or one of the gods of nature makes it easy for you to pick up on related concepts. You gain a +1 trait bonus on Knowledge (Geography) and Knowledge (Nature) checks, and Knowledge (Nature) is always a class skill for you.

Humanoid (Gnoll) (Ex) You gain a +2 bonus on Bluff, Knowledge, Perception, Sense Motive, and Survival checks when using these skills against gnolls. Likewise, you get a +2 bonus on weapon attack and damage rolls against such creatures. You may make Knowledge Skill checks untrained to identify such creatures.

Humanoid Traits (Ex) Humanoids breathe, eat, and sleep.

No Spellcasting

Reactionary You were bullied often as a child, but never quite developed an offensive response. Instead, you became adept at anticipating sudden attacks and reacting to danger quickly. You gain a +2 trait bonus on Initiative checks.

Skilled Humans gain an additional skill rank at first level and one additional rank whenever they gain a level.

Track (Ex) You gain +1 to Survival checks made to follow tracks.

Trapfinding (Ex) You add +1 to Perception skill checks made to locate traps and to Disable Device skill checks. You can use the Disable Device skill to disarm magical traps.

Wild Empathy (Ex) You can improve the attitude of an animal. This ability functions just like Diplomacy check made to improve the attitude of a person. You roll 1d20+1 to determine the Wild Empathy check result. The typical domestic animal has a starting attitude of indifferent, while wild animals are usually unfriendly. To use Wild Empathy, you and the animal must be within 30 feet of one another under normal circumstances. Generally, influencing an animal in this way takes 1 minute, but as with influencing people, it might take more or less time. You can use this ability to influence a magical beast with an Intelligence score of 1 or 2, but you take a -4 penalty on the check.

Description:

At 6 feet 2 inches and 225 pounds, Mahk is big for his 18 years. He wears a chainmail suit over wool breeches, and shirt. His boots look rather new, but all his other clothing, while clean and serviceable, has seen some years of use. Over his shoulder is slung a longbow, and he carries a scythe that is of an older design, however the wicked looking blade still seems razor sharp.

As he walks down the street, he looks and acts like a happy-go-lucky sort of fellow, humming and whistling, very off key, as he looks around at the wonders of the city, gawking at everything.

History:

Mahk was raised in a small village about one days travel from Solku in western Katapesh. The big attraction was a watering hole that caravans and travelers were able to use for a simple daily fee. There was room for the visitors to rest, whether setting up a camp for themselves, as caravans usually did, or staying in the Sand Storm Inn House which was located in the center of this small village. The largest problem the town had was wandering gnoll tribes and bandits.

Mahk father was one of several families that were simple farmers, who raised crops to sell to others in town and the folks passing thru. All the families took turns working the fields, and the older teenage children took turns guarding the fields so the gnolls and bandits did not burn them down.

Mahk grandfather was an adventurer who returned after many years away and became a member of the local militia. On his return, he took Mahk under his wing and taught him that a scythe would not only cut down the crops in the fields during harvest time, but was also good for cutting down gnolls. He also taught him how to shoot a bow, and his special secret, how to set up traps and disable them. That way, he could protect more of the crops by wounding the gnolls before having to either shoot them or cut them down with his scythe.

One fateful night while Mahk and some of the other elder teenagers were on watch, the human bandits along with gnolls, and lead by a raging gnoll leader, attacked in a larger than normal force. While eventually the ones who were not killed were driven away, the cost to the village and especially to Mahk was quite high. The found his grandfather severely wounded, and his famous flaming scythe missing. ”Mahk” the old man whispered, ”I give to you my armor and my old scythe. Use it to someday recover Bane, my scythe from the gnolls and the bandits” and with that he died.

Mahk was stricken to the very core of his being with hatred of gnolls and all bandits, took his grandfathers chain armor and his old scythe set out to find Bane and return it to the village. On his travels he killed many a gnoll and many a bandit, learned the gnoll language so he could also taunt them as they died, and finally found his way to <insert city that the campaign starts in> where he heard of a man named Garavel who was looking to hire adventurers to free the village of Kelmarane from a gnoll tribe.

Finding this man, Mahk approaches him and waits his turn as others plead their case to be included in this outing. ”Mr. Garavel, I offer my services to you in freeing Kelmarane from the gnoll infestation. I know their language, and I am proficient on killing them. My grandpa's scythe is sharp, and his longbow shoots straight. I can track them, and I can find them. I also know the way of traps, both building them and disabling them. What say you?” and he waits for the man to tell him yea or nay.

Note: Bane - +1 Keen Scythe, with the Flaming property.

@Seth86 X3 oh cool that's a very interesting character concept. I have to ask though. . . Why the Point-Blank Shot? Are you going for an arcane archer or something down the road?


DM Default, my build is coming along well, but I was wondeirng if you'd be okay with my using the Unchained Ninja? It's third-party, but mostly just applying Unchained Rogue (and a touch of Monk) to the Ninja alternate class, so really nothing new or major design-wise going on (except perhaps with some of the tricks, I haven't looked at all of them, but I wouldn't take anything that seemed game-breaking). If you aren't okay with it, I'll just make a rogue, but I figured the ninja could add some extra options and depth to the character.


PbS is so i can get precise shot. Then ranged touch attacks will be so much easier.
Im actually goig for Dragon deciple


@Seth86 Oh okay yeah xD for some reason I didn't think of ranged touch attacks that makes a lot of sense then.


No worries. =^^=
The bloodlines make that my spells do a lot of bonus damage. So a 2 feat combo to make me hit better is worth it.
Currently my acid splash does 1d3+4 if within 30ft =^^=

But im starting to think either cold or fire would be better than acid


@Seth86 Hmm decisions decisions XD I know the feeling. I kinda wanna switch Jix's stats around to have her be more Charisma oriented for one of her rogue talents next level instead of intelligence but it's probably too late for that now @.@

But yeah all that extra damage should come in handy in early levels like this!

Are ya coming up with a backstory for Nox?


I will eventually. But i am thinking of going for a frost type dragon. White/silver

Story i will need to look at the first module then go from there


@Seth86 Any way you play it sounds cool to me. =3 No idea what a spellscale/orc looks like though =P Also I understand as for the story. There seems to be a bit on Murderer's Mark you can read without buying the product. Just sayin' DM Default said he was gonna pick characters based on interesting backstory so you might wanna have one!

@DM Default Hey I know I already reposted my character sheet by I was hoping to ask a huge favor. @.@ Could I post it again? I'll make it in less spoiler tags so it takes up less space! I discovered a rogue talent that would really help my build idea that, for some reason, wasn't on Hero Lab, where I made her, even though it's direct from paizo and everything! But the thing is it would require me to have Charisma as my second highest stat and not Intelligence. Also I missed putting down some of the gear she has. I know I already reposted it but one more time pleeeeaaaassseeee ;.;


Will have a look at the PG of MM and come up with something =^^=

Well. Half orc/spellscale in essence =^^=

No PG... well then. Will have to cone up with something then heh heh


@Seth86 Awesome I'm hoping we both get picked so put up something cool x3 and got any picture references for Nox? Something similar perhaps.


Dot. I've played in a multi-module game on these boards before, worked out pretty well (/wave at Arkwright). I'll see if I get inspired.
