Awesome! I'll rework her and get the submission in. :)

Scarab Sages

Sorry about the double post, need to roll HP.

HP: 3d8 ⇒ (6, 7, 6) = 19 Cool!


Dotting, alchemist or summoner

Scarab Sages

Bar the shouting Say'ri is finished - need to correct a couple of crunch errors but the vast majority of her new incarnation as an Aerokineticist is there.

A few things:
1. Can I have some gear please, Mr GM? I didn't have anything I really wanted to carry over from the old game, so its more fun if you pick my gear Mr GM-Boss-Man! :)
2. Drawback I took a drawback and an extra trait - I didn't see anything on it either way and the drawback is perfect for Say'ri's character. If it's a problem I can drop the extra trait.


Arg, tough decisions! I wish I could have just done a lottery to better cope, but as the established party had some areas covered, I went with who I felt would best fit what was needed, in addition to the character build and background.

I've chosen GM Solspiral (Akoris Sands), Emilia von Happledonk and Sefanit Batinayad to join my three other players. If any of the three of the original group don't make the transition to this board, or if any of the above three decline the spot (or fail to check in for whatever reason), I've got Say'ri Al Bashere as my alternate.

Thanks again for all the interest folks. I'll be bringing a few other adventures to this board over the next month or so, including a 3.5e Return to the Temple of Elemental Evil, a Pathfinder Slumbering Tsar Saga and a 5e Tomb of Annihilation - so keep your eye out and PM me if you are especially interested in one of those and I'll let you know as soon as I open recruitment.


I am disappoint. But I hope the GM and the selected players have a great time!


I will gladly accept the position. I'm just feeling so stupid for not checking this sooner.


Awww...my unorthodox characters just never seem to make it in...oh well. Was fun to get back into creation again anyway. Mind your step in those dusty tombs, folks.


Looking for a player to join the group trying to help the citizens of Wati deal with an undead invasion that has created panic in the city!

The group has a fighter, a cleric, a witch and a rogue. An arcane type would be great to have, but really the party is already well-balanced and so any class would be a fine addition.

Please read the first post in this thread for further details if you're interested. Thanks!


Hi there GM West, I'd certainly be interested in rolling up an arcane type. The party is still at level 4, I take it?

I'll do my best to get through some of the old posts and get the gist of what's happened and get back to you with an idea.

Cheers!


What about a...

NG Human
Ranger Infiltrator/Witchguard
Combat Style - Archer
Favored Enemy - Undead

After losing his ward, and a year's worth of losing himself and soul searching... He followed signs to Garundi, Manaket to be precise. And now here, Wati.

Next step, redemption.

"I seek the Speckled Witch, who's face reflects the starlit night sky. Where may I find her?"

If the concept seems plausible, I'll create an alias.

Dotting for interest.

Are occult classes allowed? An AP that seems generally geared towards exploring tombs seems like a great fit for the Occultist class


Hmm...
I kinda have an idea for an arcanist evoker that mostly uses sonic and force spells. So many undead are resistant to one energy type or another. But almost nothing is resistant to force or sonic energy.

or...
The other option could be a 'good' necromancer that tries to control the undead to be useful and not dangerous to the innocent.

I didn't see build rules in the first post. Did I just miss them?

The last time recruitment was open you closed with 6 players. You have 4 now. Are you looking for 2 more or just 1?


Tried to read up on the history of the group through your links. However, at least on my phone, the text keeps jumping around as the ads change. Making it very difficult to read. I will try again on my laptop this evening when I get home.

Any races or classes you don't want to deal with? Hero points? Background skills? VMC?

I'm not really feeling the evoker yet. Still working on a personality I like.

Would the current group be unhappy with a dhampir necromancer that does NOT animate undead, but does try to control the ones encountered? Obviously don't want to build that if it is undesirable.


Ok, I could read the old thread on my laptop. Not sure what the problem was with trying to read it on my phone.

Quote:
... but does try to control the ones encountered? ...

from the old thread, it sounds as if it would be out of character for the group to accept someone even controlling the undead for 'good' reasons. So I will drop that concept.

Getting a little closer to a build and personality I like for the evoker.

background:
Frizell has recently quit the Pathfinder Society. He still has his Wayfinder, though he was supposed to turn it in before he left. But then he didn't exactly tell them he was leaving.

Couldn't stand that he had repeatedly risked his life to recover some valuable relic and then had to turn it over to the society. As far as he could tell all they did was store it in the vaults. It might as well have never been recovered!
If they are making use of the relics, they certainly aren't telling anyone. Which makes you wonder what they might be using them for?!?

Now the paranoid and secretive ratfolk has traveled to Wati to find his own relics and decide for himself how they are best to be used.


I'll throw my hat in the ring with Kidhir here - a bit of Ranger and a whole lot of Sorcerer.

HP: 6 + 2d6 + 1d10 ⇒ 6 + (5, 5) + (9) = 25

So I see in the past you said you wouldn't shut down any race/class options as long as their presence could be justified. With that in mind, I'm interested in bringing a Magus or Occultist. The former is an Arcade caster and the latter has lots and lots of utility. Any preferences as a GM on which one I should work on?

At ease folks, just a little fun. How do you think he does it?


Sorry for the delay folks, I usually go with the first to respond - though I see there have been several! I'm going to just go with one now, as a party of six seemed a bit too heavy for this adventure.

That said, I'll give another week for those that posted first to submit their completed characters for me to take a look at - otherwise I'll go on down the line. As it stands, here's the list:

littlehewy - No character yet, but first to respond. Yes, 4th level please.

Tarek Madrysian - No character yet, second to respond.

caps - No character yet, third to respond. An Occultist type would be just fine, as would a Magus. The latter could obviously be of help on the front line, which could be a very good thing.

ElterAgo - Has a character, fourth to respond.

Kidhir - Has a character, fifth to respond.

Let me know if anyone above is an alias for a player further down the list and I'll adjust accordingly.

Just a heads-up by the way, I usually try to post every three or four days or so (or more often if I can), but in the past few months my personal life has become a bit... chaotic you might say. So please do forgive any lapses in my posting rate - at the moment it's been 7 to 10 days between my posts. I hope to get back to my old routine sooner than later. If this affects your decision, I completely understand. Thanks for the interest, everyone!


That's too slow for me to stay involved. I will withdraw.


Pathfinder Adventure, Lost Omens, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

That pace is fine with me. Occultists can make really great front liners so I will go with that.

hp: 3d8 ⇒ (3, 2, 2) = 7

oof. Worse than PFS. Oh well.


If you need another o would step in here.

I present Ogochukwu, wandering explorer and collector of interesting old things. He has come to Wati in hopes of getting access to the tombs but finds this undead uprising very troubling.

I haven't crunched the numbers and I'm sure I haven't built him optimally, but I think he's generally comparable to a melee magus, with more flexibility in terms of tricks and abilities to buff other members of the party as well. His spell selection is narrow now but it will open up at level 6 and level 10 a fair bit. He should complement the party's existing front liner; I think their only feat in common is power attack. In combat he will try to position himself to take attacks of opportunity as much as possible.

I still need to figure out traits, some more gear, and possibly a more thematic set of weapons. But this should give you enough to go off of; let me know if you need anything else.

** spoiler omitted **...

Ogochukwu was accepted into another Mummy's Mask campaign starting from the beginning so I will withdraw him.


Kidhir, I think everyone else has either withdrawn or not yet submitted a character, so you're in if you'd still like the spot!

GM Shadow, you come highly recommended and I know you just got a spot in one of my other adventures. I'll take you as well, if you have a character you'd like to create for this one? A party of six will be just fine.


I'm a bit surprised I'm the last man standing. :) But I'm game to play! Thanks!
